Introducing 2018 themes …

Posted by with No Comments

2017 was a year for transformation, for coming into the light, but also allowing the darkness to inspire us to go within, take time for stillness and then allowing movement to heal us and let us grow and expand.

We worked together on creating a vision, and with that we sunk into our passion.
We were brave warriors as we leapt into the direction of our dreams, that to which gave us so much energy to be inspired to be our authentic selves and let our light really shine through. Freedom came naturally from here, the freedom to beYOUtiful. Things were flowing in this space of love and light which helped us trust the process, to all that was happening for us. Then as the leaves started to fall, it was time to root in order to fully be in the glory to rise strong like trees, creating a solid foundation to reach for the stars. We took it all in as we embraced the journey and the beauty in it all!

If you are just joining our NS tribe and family (and we are so glad you are here) or had quite a busy year, here are the themes we explored in 2017, our year in review …

Healing Journey’s: Embrace- Heart Soil

Posted by with No Comments

I sat with my soul in the midst of its storming once. I went deeper inside, to the eye in the middle. Surrounded by the chaos of which I held no control, I rooted into my core. I held still and listened. And this is what I heard:

Embrace it all. Every bit of it. Of everything that is your life. Gather it all in and hold it. Allow it all into your heart. Let it all break you open so your heart can work its magic.

Embrace who you are where you are. Embrace all that has happened. The joy and the pain. Embrace your journey. Every step you’ve made towards your dreams. And all the slips and falls. All the stories that have just begun to tell their tale. And all the stories that ended before their tale was told. Gather it all and hold it dear. Even your suffering. Let your storms wound you. Be soft in the spite of them. Let them cut into your heart and turn its deeper soils as only those pains can. And trust the heart’s gift of transforming what we allow it to accept.

Healing Journeys: After the Fall

Posted by with No Comments

I’ve been working with my breath lately.  Breathwork is powerful.  Without the breath there is no life.  And life so much like the breath, with its rhythmic draw and release.  

As I sat with my breath, following its rise and fall, it offered me a story.  Inhaling, I paused at the top, holding the breath there, holding life within.  Feeling gratitude, feeling full.  Feeling alive.

Trusting I will feel its fullness once again, I let it go.  I let it fall.  I followed it down.  Down into my roots.  I let it all out.  And I sat within my emptiness. And I listened from that stillness.  I was less comfortable at the bottom of the breath.  When can I breath?  I feel so hollow.  

I listened for my answer.  It was so quiet at the bottom.  And from this place I heard that small shy voice that brings the world down to its size.  I cannot tell you what it said to me.  It spoke a million words through the silence.  Through the slowing beat of my heart, I listened until I felt at peace with my emptiness.  Until I was ready to accept my own dark hollowness.  Until I learned winter’s lesson of holding that quiet space after each fall, listening and waiting for life to fill me again.

I was ready to inhale.  I was ready to allow my lungs to expand with life, to rise with the truth of fullness I now understood.  My breath held a lesson of self compassion, for all the times I have fallen and all the times I will feel empty again.  Life will take me to its darkest depths over and over yet still I will heed the call of the heights I have yet to reach.   And so I will rise.  Again and again, I will rise.

Oil of the Month – Arise {Enlightening Blend}

Posted by with No Comments

Emotions are a complex sum of the activity of multiple systems in the brain and body. For instance, think back to a day when you had a lot on your mind but just a few hours of sleep to get you through everything. Your central nervous system was probably agitated and stressed, while your periphery nervous system probably felt sluggish and struggled to keep up. As you can see, a single stimulus can affect multiple body systems in different ways, causing a complex response that can be just as complex to manage. With this complexity in mind, doTERRA scientists and yoga specialist Elena Brower worked together to design doTERRA Arise, a new blend that helps calm the mind and energize the body. This unique combination of invigoration and relaxation promotes profound feelings like freedom, inspiration, and enlightenment.

Healing Journeys: Gonna Kick It Root Down

Posted by with No Comments

I have changed. Life has changed me. I am moved with each new year, new season, new moon, new day, new experience. Sometimes it hurts.

I allow what has been painful to cut into my soil and make way. Make way for my roots to break new ground so I can find water from a deeper source. One that quenches a deeper thirst within my soul One that longs to know who I am beyond myself, without my self.

My roots travel the spaces of where I have been, owning who I have been. Finding who I am now. Now that my higher ground has shifted. My roots take hold of it all. Expanding my base so I can grow into the fullest expression of my life. So I can surrender to the winds of inspiration and let my seeds fly. So I can let my leaves fall and still feel strong. Still feel beautiful. Rooted and true. Rooted in Truth.

“Surely a man needs a closed place wherein he may strike root and, like the seed, become.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery
