Eat Breathe Thrive January 20, 2016
January brought me a lot of movement and new energy. An invitation to step up a little. It is exciting and it also brings up resistance and self doubt.
Can I really create the life I want? Can I explore this wonderful dance between stability and stretching myself out to unknown territory?
The answer is: yes, of course…my life is wide open. Opportunities show up when I am ready for it and even when I am not quiet ready for it. The choice is to say present and to breathe through the changes.
Have a wonderful week and perhaps see you on the mat,
It was a very healing experience to run my very first EatBreatheThrive group. It gave me so much gratitude for my community and how we can create the rituals and celebrations to live close to our soul.
The next one will be at Capital Fitness. Feel free to check it out: http://bit.ly/Thrive-Tribe-Madison
Thirty years ago I was suffering from eating disorders. My life was dictated by food: I had huge binges that would last for days in a row. They would be interrupted only by fasting completely. My life was a roller coaster. I felt so lonely, isolated and ashamed of myself.
In my drawings I lived a parallel life. In that ‘reality’ I was supported by a huge circus tribe, nurtured by them and fully loved. My life was an adventure. When I look at the art I can feel the strength of my mind. I found a healing device, a vehicle that carried me through the deepest despair.
It makes me smile: there is no such thing as loss, our life is always rich if we are willing to see it.
Feel free to check my exhibit out at the Lake view library in Madison.
EatBreatheThrive September 18, 2015
In June I had the privilege to fly out to New York to take the course: EatBreatheThrive. This course helps heal our inner wounds regarding self image and disordered eating.
It was an amazing experience for me.
When I walked into the room and I heard the story of the founder, Chelsey, It took me deep into my own deep wired believes of myself and my body. Simultaneously it offered a holding space to me to open up for a new experience, the gently yoga poses and the tracking meditation helped me to connect with my body in a very healing and nurturing way. But the most wonderful aspect of the group was the companionship, it was strengthening and heart warming to not have to go through this process alone.
I was listened to, loved and hugged and slowly the resistance melted away. I received all this love and a whole new set of shiny tools with it!
On the 9th of October, Sarah Higgins and me will start our own EatBreatheThrive course in Madison. It will be a 6 weeks course. We are very excited about it and passionate about it’s goal: to reconnect women with their intuitive wisdom and to help them heal from self image issues and disordered eating.
Check out our postcard and let yourself have this experience. Or please let others know that could benefit of this course. There are scholarships available.
Love and peace,
new experiences April 4, 2015
After a yoga class I had a cup of tea in the lobby. There was a message on the cup. It said: ‘If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done’ -Thomas Jefferson.
I loved it. It is such a simple concept, brilliant.
I looked in my life for the places of lack in my life. I could receive more income, cash flow. I could improve on self care, more time alone to meditate and to practice my own personal yoga at home.
Both places of lack urged me to step up in my life and to create space and a willingness to create and to receive.
I immediately knew that I had to let go of my main job and to invite in a creative vision of myself as an artist and a healer.
When I took the action step and I gave notice for my job, it immediately brought me in a brand new experience of myself. There was trust in the letting go. I felt so happy and taken care of.
This was ‘the something’ I’ve never had: trust and excitement about my new life, without needing the confirmation that the new experience was in place.
And this was my willingness to do something I had never done. Jumping in the big ocean, trusting the process of life that when I close a door, other doors will open. Maybe not exactly in my timing, but for sure in harmony with the universe.
I could feel the ground strongly supporting me, I could hear the birds sing outside of my window and I thoroughly enjoyed the memory of home that, that lovely sound awakened in me.
Thanks, Thomas Jefferson!
