Fall is here and the weather will soon be delightful. The Fall is a great time to reconnect with yourself. Spend some time nourishing your body, mind, and spirit and reconnecting with “YOU”. Get outside and go for a walk in nature. Eat natural food that is prepared with “Love”. Dream of the life you would like to experience in all aspects. Nurture and embrace your emotional, spiritual, physical, intellectual, and sexual aspects and explore your inner world. In our fast paced society with technology moving lighting fast it is important to slow down and decompress. It’s like my love Jules’ father said, “Go slow, you will see better”! A good way to slow down is to reconnect to the “breath”. More on The “Breath”. I like to use the inhale-hold-exhale-hold repeat technique: You simply inhale through your nose for a 3 count, then hold for a 3 count, exhale through mouth for a 6 count, hold for a 3 count then repeat. This will totally re-energize and calm you at the same time. Time to have some fun and rediscover “You”. Your challenge: To take one day this week and make it all about “you”. This means you will make yourself the number one priority for this one day. You deserve it! I recommend choosing a non work day and I also recommend shutting down all technological devices so that you may be completely present to your wants and needs as you spend the day exploring , loving , and nourishing yourself.

“Gratitude is a nice touch of beauty added last of all to the countenance, giving a classic beauty, an angelic loveliness, to the character. ” Theodore Parker
I was a very young girl the first time I ever read this quote. I can still recall the feeing I had after I read these beautiful words. It was like a breath of fresh air, a sign from the universe or a ray of sunshine bursting through a cloudy day instilling a hopeful direction in which I chose to take. And in retrospect, I am so “grateful” that I did do just that. Continue reading →
