Yoga Practitioner & Kinestologist...
I am awakened to the ways in which when I believe I am more than enough and deserving of a life of abundance, when I trust wholeheartedly in unconditional love from the world around me and myself, and when I stand grounded in my authentic greatest self, that is when the world is capable of healing and so am I.
Knowledge, experience & adaptability
As a small town Vancouver Islander I didn’t realize how important balance was in health and happiness until I moved to Fort Mcmurray In 2011. And boy am I ever grateful for this unique and kind community of people as it opened my mind and my heart to a serious lack of balance in my life previous. The isolating and brutal winters of the North confronted my masks of insecurity and opened my eyes to my negative thoughts. I was forced to look within myself for healing. I wish I could tell you that my health transformation was easy but it was a lot of work and worth every ounce of effort!
Truly I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to live amongst the beauty for the Boreal Forest and yet to be witness of the environmental destruction that is occurring here and worldwide. This juxtaposition has awakened me beyond the superficial layers and encouraged me to be and do better for myself and for others including my impact on this planet. As I returned to Vancouver Island recently, I have a new perspective on how I and we are impacting the natural world around us but most detrimentally ourselves. I notice the struggle of working excessively, minds racing with the stressor’s of a busy life and many of us not listening to our body’s and heart’s calling for change.
The reflection in the mirror at this moment in my life seems to indicate a need for a shift in intention. I am awakened to the ways in which when I believe I am more than enough and deserving of a life of abundance, when I trust wholeheartedly in unconditional love from the world around me and myself, and when I stand grounded in my authentic greatest self, that is when the world is capable of healing and so am I!!!
My power is taking responsibility for my thoughts, my words and my actions everyday. I fully embrace my fears of failing, my weakness for cheese, and my struggle to trust fully that the Universe will provide. But Now that I see more clearly how these sneaky sabotaging fears and doubts and unhealthy habits try to hold me back, I can chose every moment if I want to let them rule my life and prevent me from loving myself, my job, my family and friends, random strangers, spiders and my planet. I can continue to think kinder thoughts, speak more compassionate words and act more in harmony with myself and all beings and open to a deeper gratitude for this life.
What I have learned so far is that the more I take time to listen to my body, mind and spirit and move in away that honours my unique purpose, I wake up feeling joyful, I radiate so much love and I play and laugh all day long. No matter what challenges are thrown my way, I feel safe in my heart and I know deep in my belly that I am meant to share my positivity and genuine fascination with life. I hope to encourage and inspire all those around me to truly see their infinite greatness and move from a place that is most meaningful and joyful for all. Peace will spread to every organism on this planet the moment each and everyone of us as a community can truly be content and honest with who we really are …Greatness beyond measure!
