I much prefer to talk about intentions for the new year, rather than resolutions! The word 'intention' to me has a much deeper, internal, more feminine energy than 'resolution', which sounds so external and hard! The best time for writing intentions for the new year is arguably with the first new moon of the year - as this energy always supports us to the sow the seeds of what we want to reap in the future. I recommend a 3 list approach to writing your intentions for the new year, I discuss this approach in this video and also the full Blog, which was published by Sivana East. I also suggest taking a very holistic approach of looking at your life with regards to what intentions you want to set. To make this easier you might like to consider the Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing aspects of Food, Movement, Sleep, Surroundings and Being. Our first Yin Yoga, Meditation and Reiki Circle of 2019 will give you the opportunity to truly release what is no longer serving you, providing the space to bring in what you want to bring in for the year. May 2019 bring you Peace & Freedom, Love & Happiness and Health & Wellbeing!
Are you trying to fall pregnant or even thinking about trying? Perhaps you’ve been doing all the things that your doctor tells you to do – exercising, losing weight, taking multi-vitamins and not drinking caffeine or alcohol. But have you been preparing the other energetic levels of your body – mental, emotional and spiritual – for conception and pregnancy? Many women, although they put lots of effort into preparing their physical body in order to conceive do not do the same for all the other areas of their wellbeing, and the problem with this approach is that they are only 30% prepared! All energetic levels are equal and in fact the physical level is the lowest, or last, level of importance. The most critical work to do is on your mind and spirit when dealing with any health concern. Key Negative Emotions There are a three key emotional aspects to be aware of when preparing for conception – fear, guilt and self-love. It is important to remember that things on the emotional, mental and spiritual energetic levels do not necessarily manifest themselves on the conscious plane. You may not be aware of how or why you are feeling an emotion. You may look at the name of the emotion and not recognise that it applies to you. Research into epigenetics is now showing that in fact our emotions can be
Wow! Only 3 weeks to go until C-Day!!! How are you going with keeping your wellbeing intact so far? Hopefully you have caught my other Silly Season Survival Tips, covering sleep, food and hangovers? If not check them out via the links or on my Facebook page. Gift giving is a big part of the Silly Season, whether or not you celebrate Christmas, there are still end of year gifts to buy for colleagues, teachers, service providers, etc. Does this tie you up in knots? Do you over analyse and overthink every gift you have to buy? Do you frequently overspend? Do you become paralysed by our compare and despair culture and put off your shopping until the last minute? If any of these things are true for you then this blog will help! Accentuate the Positive Let’s start with the positive stuff! It has been scientifically proven that giving actually brings more pleasure and happiness than receiving! Just think of the great benefit to your own wellbeing of giving gifts! Why not take a moment to express gratitude for this gift within a gift! Also, it is true that it is the thought that counts. Even if you don’t give the ‘perfect’ gift every time, the recipient is still going to feel chuffed that you put in the time and expense of giving them a gift at all! If
Is there something in your life that you really, really want, or really want to change, but no matter what you do it just doesn’t happen? It may be something physical like a new car or a new house, or something active like a new job or a new body shape. But it may also be something as intangible as desperately wanting to feel differently about something – to stop feeling heartbroken or to stop being jealous or to stop worrying. Whatever it is you know you want it, you try to believe that you deserve it, you even take steps towards achieving it but it remains illusive... You want it BAD The problem with wanting something really badly is that just that - we want it BADly. In other words, the way that you want it is not ‘good’, and is not being activated in a space of positive, abundant energy. The problem with wanting something really badly is that we spend a lot of time and emotional energy on the fact that we DON’T have it. The message that the Universe gets is that you don’t have it and that is what is delivered right back to you, more of not having it. What we think is what we get. This may sound like a whole lot of manifestation woo woo but in fact it is physics. No
Grateful or Anxious - which one are you? Gratitude We hear the word Gratitude everywhere these days. It’s all over social media and weekend magazines. How you’re meant to feel it, say it, be grateful. Do you find that difficult? Do you just give it a cursory thought or express it in a few brief words before you move back to thinking about how you’ll be happy when you get that project finished, you buy that new dress, you lose a couple of kilos… I’ll be happy when syndrome is absolutely rife in modern western society and largely because we are constantly bombarded with messages about how we should look, what we should buy, which place we should want to live and where we should go on holiday. In the words of Jennifer Aniston, we are exposed to a constant barrage of ‘compare and despair’ material everywhere we look. Anxiety So why is this a problem. What does it mean if you find it hard to feel gratitude? It means that you are not living in the moment and you will NEVER feel satisfied with your life and what you have NOW. This then has a detrimental effect on your wellbeing. The definition of anxiety is desiring or being concerned for something to happen in the future. If you can’t feel gratitude what you are probably feeling, is anxious. Let’s
Is your quotient of hugs a bit low? Perhaps it's time to book an Aromatherapy Massage?! Attached is a great article on 4 things that you can do improve your own happiness.https://www.theladders.com/p/21219/neuroscience-4-rituals-happy Never forget that you are the only person that can make you happy and you are also solely responsible for your own health and wellbeing. If you don't want to read the whole thing these are the key take-aways: 1. Gratitude. Ask “What am I grateful for?” No answers? Doesn’t matter. Just searching helps. 2. Label your negative emotions. Give it a name and your brain isn’t so bothered by it. This is something that I always get my clients to do before a Reiki Healing and Chakra Balance session. 3. Decide. Go for “good enough” instead of “best decision ever made on Earth.” You will always be much happier when a decision is no longer hanging over you. 4. Hugs, hugs, hugs. Touch is really important. If you don't get 5 hugs a day you need a massage! As an aside, sending a text message does not have the same positive effect on the brain as talking to someone in person or even on the phone. Don’t text — touch. #energyhealing #aromatherapy #essentialoils #doterraoils #wellbeing #mindbodyspirit #evenstarreikiyarraville #reikiyarraville #balance #feelbetter #dobetter #yarraville #health #energy #chakras #doterra #healthylifestyle #healthiswealth #healthcoach #healthybody #wellness #reiki #pain #stress #stressed #stressfree
