Know what you want so you can get what you want.
If you don’t know what you want, then it doesn’t really matter what you get.
Harsh but true. If you don’t know what you want your career to look like, then it doesn’t matter what job you work. If you don’t know what kind of relationship you want, then any type or relationship is fine.
It seems so simple but knowing what you want is so important. If you don’t know, how can you 1) go after what you want and 2) energetically pull in what you want? It’s impossible. Without a clear focus and a destination in mind, you’re sending the Universe mixed signals (and we all know how confusing it is to be on the receiving end of those…ever dated the appropriately labeled “fuck boy/girl?”).
I’m going to tell you a secret that can change your life if you’re willing to embrace it: It’s entirely possible to create the life of your dreams.

Why we reject our bodies and the wisdom I learned battling my own distorted body image
For whatever reason, we tend to reject our bodies. Maybe the media got into our heads when we were starting to be conscious of our bodies. Maybe this rejection was modeled by our parents or role models. Whatever the origin, because of this many of us have engaged in unhealthy and possibly dangerous methods to reach our “ideal” body. Even when we do reach our goals this way, it’s never as satisfying or as long lasting as we had imagined it to be. This is because a healthy body is the product of a healthy, loving mindset, real nutritious food and drink, and some physical activity. And that isn’t some “live, laugh love” bedroom wall quote or #quotephase under a yoga pants wearing, pumpkin spice latte picture. I know this from living in my own personal hell and battling my mind with this every day. I had my own personal war with disordered eating, crash diets and “cleanses,” diet pills, obsessive calorie control and working out, and an extremely unkind and critical self-view. Anything that declared it could make me lose weight “fast and easy,” I was putting in my body or trying it. This obsession began at the age of 9 years old when I started counting my calories and telling myself I was too fat.
First thing’s first…a 9 year old doesn’t know to count calories. It’s a learned behavior. We don’t know anything is “wrong” with us or our bodies until someone tells us so. Continue reading “Accept everybody…except your body”

Everything is energy…whether you remember your high school science classes or not.
We are surrounded by an energy field, an electromagnetic field, a vibe, or, the more new age-y term, an aura. (No joke, “Amber” by 311 came on as I wrote this sentence. Take a listen to set the energetic mood with me.) A person’s aura is the combination of their chakras, which are the energy centers on the body. (We will go more in depth on chakras in our upcoming Chakra series.) An aura is usually portrayed as an invisible egg or bubble encasing the body. Chakras and a person’s energetic field can be affected by emotions, thoughts, outside stimuli, substances, and other people.
Not only are we constantly sending out energy from our electromagnetic field but we are constantly receiving too.

Two years ago I found myself drowning in a suicidal depression. I dealt with anxiety and panic attacks my whole life and had been struggling with increasingly worse depression. Having grown up around addicts, I thought I understood what “hitting bottom” meant, but this depressive dip I found myself in showed me that sometimes “bottom” has a basement. I buried myself deeply under self-sabotaging and numbing patterns. Feeling anything was just too much at the time. But the thing I learned about numbing was: you can’t numb the bad without numbing the good. So I found myself engaging in risky and reckless behaviors just to feel something. I was looking for an accident to take me out. I would ride my bike in heavy, fast traffic hoping a car would side swipe me and end it. I was done with life. Memories had surfaced and the weight of my past had become too much. I was ready to check out.
