Quote of the day:

“It’s all about the power of the focus of your mind.”

 

When I was little my mom used to make me eggies n cheese.  This was after I’d ice-skated from 5-10 am.  I was training for the Olympics at age 5. Then I’d go to kindergarten.

 

A lotta other stuff went on during my childhood. Not the best ever.  Even as a little little child I understood the power of focus.  If I thought and talked about and focused on something bad, I felt bad.  And more bad stuff appeared.  If I thought and talked about and focused on something good, more good stuff appeared.  The abuse didn’t stop, but I noticed that the more I focused on good and happy stuff, the more good and happy stuff I lived.  And so even though I dealt wit some serious sh**, I manifested some pretty awesome sh** too.  Like my tennis coach inviting me to come live with him in Florida so he could train me to go pro (for free—my parents were broke).

 

I used to think that I was magic. That I could create things with my mind.  Now I know that this is true and I’m here to teach it to you.

 

And as a special added bonus, my childhood gave me the incredible focus that has helped me to create everything I have.

 

Have the best day ever!
Namaste!

A quick and friendly tip from one Super-mom to all you Super-heros out there.

1.  Get on your yoga mat.  Often.  I get up at 4am to do it daily (Come join me at Prana at my predawn practice seven days a week!), but whatever you can do.  It’s what you do most of the time that matters.  Don’t beat yourself up if you can’t do it daily.  Do what you can.

 

2.  When you’re in your favorite pose, feeling amazing—feeling the stress and the fear melting off of your body, the past and the future fading into the distance, the NOW ever present and a feeling of peace and “all is well” enveloping you, really FEEL how this feels in your body, mind, and Spirit, and take a Spiritual “snapshot” of it.  Really feel the essence of it.

 

3.  While you’re feeling the essence of this feeling, visualize yourself moving through your day feeling this feeling. See yourself in different situations, both easy and fun and challenging and annoying, still feeling this feeling.

 

4.  Watch what happens.  ;)

 

Have the best day ever!

Namaste!

Super-Mom of the Month

WOW!! Supermom of the month.    I was shocked to say the least when Taylor mentioned she wanted me to be her super mom of the month.  Me?  I never thought there was anything super about me.  I’m as average as average is, nonetheless I was and am honored to be thought of.

 

I met Taylor a year ago during Teacher Training at Prana Power Yoga.  I was instantly drawn to her energy and knew I was in the right place.  I didn’t know why I decided to become a yoga instructor nor did I know what I was getting into.  You see prior to signing up for the 8 week teacher training I think I practiced yoga about a dozen times.  I woke up one day and said “ I think I’d like to be a yoga instructor”  I proceeded to ask my yoga instructor at BSC how one goes about becoming an instructor.  She told me about Prana and here I am a whole year later.  I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for other than the fact I was looking for “something” the something that yoga instructors have.  I’m learning every day and I’m a work in progress but this is a journey and I am excited to see where it takes me.  The teacher training was an emotional and beautiful experience.  As quickly as the thought popped into my head to become a yoga instructor the same happened for my understanding why.  I’m understanding I am where I am suppose to be right now at this moment.  Stress is not as prevalent as before and I’m understanding people a bit better.

 

So, a lil about me.  I’m a single mom of one 18 year old son.  I don’t consider myself any different than the next mother. I never found raising a child difficult because it came naturally to me. .  I raised him simply the way I wanted to be treated.  I always knew I wanted to be a mother. I was 24 when I found out I was pregnant and afraid to tell my mother.  I knew what she would say or better yet the look or her face would tell me how disappointed she was.  Most people know my situation and how my son was the result of an abusive relationship, however I wouldn’t have change a thing.  I had to go through that for my son to be born.  If I didn’t then he wouldn’t have been born and I can’t imagine my life without him.  People congratulate me for being a single mom  my son does too but I don’t think I deserve any special credit.  Putting aside all my heartache and struggles in my life, it’s nothing compared to what some are going through.  I do count my blessings and I feel blessed to have been given this gift of motherhood.  There are those who want children and can’t   I am so very thankful and I can’t say it enough…..It’s truly a blessing.

“where you are at this moment is where you are suppose to be”

Sending love and light to all
