Envisioning

In my Sustainability and Environmental Studies course, my first assignment was to vision our livelihood path a few years from now. The idea of intentional vision practice makes so much sense on many levels. Studies show that athletes perform better when the visualize the act of their sport.

Day 12: Nourish

The majority of people in North America are overfed, yet under-nourished. This is one of the many astonishing and life-changing things I learned from the movie Hungry for Change. It’s out on Netflicks-I highly recommend watching it! When it comes to food and diet, our Western society is very ill! We go through cycles of […]

Day 11: You are vulnerable…

My nephew was just born today! He is healthy, beautiful and just PERFECT! He is also soooo loved. I just can’t focus on anything else… With that said, my energy and desire to write a meaningful blog today is on the low end of the scale. However, what is on my mind today is expressed […]

Day 10: Be…Here…Now

I love the abundance of Bald Eagles, around Vancouver and area, at this time of year! I was reminded of this on my drive back into the city, through Ladner. As I was battling with traffic and pouring rain, I saw many beautiful Eagles, sitting in trees and on lamp posts. I was in awe […]

Do you know that exercise can increase your lifespan, make daily activities easier, prevent injury and [...]

Day 7: Give

Possibly one of the bests medicines on earth is giving to others. It is so healing to remove ourselves from the "poor-me" stories that we tend to create, and move into selfless acts of kindness. We get stuck in our egocentric minds, which tell us all the things we don't have and can't do. Perhaps [...]

Day 6: Purification

Under the layers of  filth and contamination; which is in our ozone, the air we breath, the  food we eat, the thoughts that flood our minds, and the cells inside our bodies; there is a pure and radiant being. Cleansing is the process of riding ourselves from the dirt that weighs us down, on a [...]

Day 5: The Middle Road

Sometimes it's hard to find the balance between accepting the things we can't change, and pushing past our comfort zones to push our limits. If we are just OK with how things are, change cannot occur and stagnancy breeds illness. However, if we burn the candles at both ends, trying to achieve our dreams, we also [...]

Day 4: Find the Love Within

When I woke up this morning, I felt some anxiety creep up again around not having the technology to be "plugged in" and get some of my important internet tasks completed. So, I randomly picked up a book on the bedside table and began flipping through the pages. It is called Love for No Reason [...]
