One of my very best friends told me once that it takes only a twenty minute outing with your children to shift the energy of the whole day.  She said that when her kids were little (she has four), when she would notice that she was sweeping the kitchen floor for the third time that day, she would put everything down and say, “That’s it!  We’re going out”

“Where?” her little ones would ask.

“I don’t know–anywhere,” she’d reply.

Today when you find yourself in that place–whether you’re at home with your kiddos or at work or at school solo–spinning your wheels and disconnected from your Prana, STOP.  Take a deep breath in and a deep breath out, and go to a park.  Even for five minutes.  Maybe just in your mind, if you can’t leave the building.  But go.  And watch everything shift.  Energetically.  And that’s where all creation begins.

Have the best day ever!

Namaste!

“Life is a flash of lightning in the dark of night. It is a brief time of tremendous potential.”

B. Alan Wallace

Life is a great big canvas.  Throw all the paint on it that you can.

I’m a big believer in this and so I’ve always got somethin’ cookin’.  Literally and figuratively.  And my Spirit loves this.

When I walk into our kitchen after teaching the daily pre-dawn class at Prana Newton (4:30 am class–see you there!), I put on pot of water to make yerba matte tea (my fave), a pot of coffee, breakfast for the kiddos, and breakfast for Philippe and me.

After I make my tea (and sweeten it with Just Like Sugar–my fave too–get it at Vitacost.com), I boil some more water for hot chocolate.  I love to have several hot drinks available at once, just for fun.  Because it’s all about fun!  We all need to lighten up, laugh more, and appreciate more, because all is well.  Hot chocolate and coffee and tea will help you do this….and it’s so simple.

When I make dinner for our family of 7, it’s no different–I always have about ten things goin’ at once.  And then we have a big smorgasbord to choose from–again, for fun.

This is a metaphor for my life.  I always have a bunch of *fun* balls in the air–balls that don’t feel like work but are things that I love–and then the Universe lines em up as they should be.  They happen if and when they should, and all is well.

You’re a super-person and you do this too–we all do–so pat yourself on the back for doing so and enjoy the fullness of your time on this planet.  This is it!  The only moment we have is now so enjoy it–this is your life.

Have the best day ever!

Namaste!

Super-Mom of the Month
mom of month

Super-mom Kim Cherelli

 

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
