I didn’t know this was coming!

Mothers Day 2019.  My wife, Gincori, one of my daughters, Tahira and I were playing together, taking time to honour her day. In a moment, the unforeseeable happened. 

Gincori went from happy, healthy and strong to not being able to speak clearly or have control of one side of her body. 

My daughter and I looked at each other with disbelief.  I recognised the symptoms I new we had to act fast. 

Fortunately, on being Present for Gincori and getting the help that was needed at that time plus five and a half weeks in hospital, three procedures and months of rehab and healing work, Gincori is recovering remarkably and is well on her way to her usual bright and robust self.  What happened?… 

Gincori had an undetected hole in her heart from birth which caused a blood clot to the brain and to have a stroke.

My family and I witnessed in real time the healing that can happen when we are open to it. The lesson – never ever let anyone tell you what you can or can not be, do or achieve.  

We all have an incredible ability to heal and create infinite possibilities in our own life.

Whether it is big life events or the grind of a busy life and the demands of family or business, we all need to take the time to replenish, restore and renew. Experiencing this first hand and knowing the results, I began the 30 Day Body Mind Soul Challenge

We all have challenges that we experience. The problems only really come when we don’t have the reserves to deal with them. If you want to step into more of who you are and discover the ease you can have, look into this.

Here’s what Alexandra shared about her 30 Day Body, Mind, Soul Challenge – “I came here at a crossroad in my life…I have skyrocketed into my own beautiful woman and true energy. I once hid and ran from life…I am finally coming home into my true feminine self…Read More

Take beautiful care of your self and enjoy the vitality, joy and health that life has to offer.

“HOW TO MANAGE STRESS & LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT”

By Faris Mouasher

 

We’d all like to think we are above it. To think that we’ve got things together, at least most of the time.

Being a good partner, parent, sibling, daughter/son, friend and business person takes a lot of energy. It can be hard work.

It’s hard until you acknowledge what is really going on inside of your body, something that ripples out into the very heart of who you are, everyone you touch and everything you do.

You can call it tired, angry, sleep deprived, disorganized, numb, sick, overwhelmed.

Bottom line is you are stressed.  It’s a throwaway word, with a stigma because it’s associated with being a victim. You’re better than that, right?!

“It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.” ~ Lou Holtz

You know that having good sleep, eating nutritious food, exercising and meditating support you to deal with the negative effects of stress, and forms a solid platform to build from when busy with family, work, friends and a multitude of other responsibilities.
Yet often you know you need more… So how do you come back to living the empowered, harmonious and fulfilling life that you want?

Here’s How;

1.  Take your breath off automatic pilot.  Get conscious with your body and breath. Breathe consciously, deeply and gently.

Research shows that when stressed the shallower our breath becomes, breathing through the chest. Oxygen levels reduced leaving you feeling tired, irritable, disconnected and often with body pain.

Breathing plays a huge part in our general wellbeing. The points below guide you to breath deeper that will realease new life force throughout your mind body and soul. Destressing and detoxifying.
1.  Breathe in and out through your nose.
2.  Gently draw breath down into your belly and allow it to expand.
3.  Gently draw your breath back up to your diaphragm and then into your chest then exhale.

You will balance your hormonal and endocrine systems.  You’ll activate your para-sympathetic nervous system, release adrenal gland overload, restore your bodies energy and Yin-Yang balance. You will feel centered, grounded and resilient.

2.  Take a warm Epson and Himalayan Salt bath weekly.
Your body will release toxins, ease muscles, reduce inflammation, heal and relax you.
*1 cup Epson salt to 1 cup Himalayan Salt.

3.  Do things differently.
Drive a different route to frequently visited destinations. Try different foods. Wear different clothes. Talk to people that you wouldn’t normally approach.
Why? To break up the automatic habits that have become your comfort zone. Leave the familiar, create flexibility.

4.  Receive healing body work.
Your body wears the brunt of stress which overflows into your thoughts and feelings. When you receive nurturing bodywork that allows you to come back to your center, you align your bilateral brain function and find more balance in your mindset and emotions.

5.  Ask for help.
It takes a strong, courageous person to be vulnerable enough to seek support and ask for what they want. Either in growth phase or if you’re challenged, they are both stressors on you and your body.  Seek the support of friends, family and mentors. You deserve it.

Live life from an empowered, grounded place where flow and ease become the norm. Yes, you will be stressed but you won’t feel or act stressed. Create the reserves to deal with the things that life presents.
Take time for yourself. Nurture yourself. Get the support you want – you’ll feel more at ease and empowered.
