The Good Morning Goddess Ritual of Self-Love

The Good Morning Goddess Ritual of Self-Love

Self-love, the Saint-Graal of our modern society. Everyday, we get hammered by advertising messages asking us to take care of ourselves, to follow our dreams, to take that holiday, or leave that job. They ask us to do it, but it is always through the acquisition of a thing.

I say that it all starts with self-love. Loving the person we are, as we are, is the basis of a healthy and balanced life. How can you pursue your dreams, love others, build a life you absolutely love, if you don’t love the person you will be doing this with: yourself?

The yoga practice is a beautiful way to cultivate self-love, through small actions. It is you reminding yourself to breathe during that challenging pose. It is knowing when to stop before you hurt. It is allowing your body to feel the way it feels, every day. It is accepting that one day you are flying in Bakasana (Crow pose) and the following day, you are collapsing in that same pose.

In addition to the practice on the mat, I have created a ritual to include self-love in my daily life. As for meditation, and yoga, think of self-love as a muscle that needs to be constantly trained. It is a life practice.

I developed this routine when in Bali, where I spent 2 months to reconnect to myself, and work on personal development, including self-love.

Reconnection to your feminine side

For me, it all started with reconnecting to my femininity.

As a Yogipreneur, Vinyasa teacher and writer, hustling is part of my daily life. I have to go for my dreams, otherwise no one will serve them to me on a silver platter.

Being in Bali, which is such a smooth and sensual land, I realised I had let my masculine side take over my overall energy. Everything I did in the sphere of work was moved from a place of power, strength, pushing and pushing. My perception of power and the way I conceived it was to be like men.

Bali, and an extensive practice of Kundalini Yoga, showed me otherwise. Being a woman and denying my femininity caused an imbalance in my capacity to love myself for what I was.

The more I reconnected with my feminine side, through practices like dancing, drawing, singing, the more I felt comfortable with myself. I felt good with my body, and I started to let it express itself authentically – wearing no bra was the best discovery!

Practices that cultivate creativity, whatever the medium, are excellent ways to reconnect with our feminine side. Kundalini, through its kriyas, is also an amazing practice to tap into our inner force, which is feminine – the snake coiled at the base of our spine is a she!

We are all Goddesses

The kundalini practice, as well as long discussions with inspiring women, led me to the conclusion that shifted the paradigm I previously lived with: every woman is a Goddess.

We are all Goddesses, both Shakti and Kali, we are powerful and without us, the World would technically be nothing. Yes, this is being feminist. No, this does not mean we, women, are here to despise men.

Being a Goddess means that we know our value, we know that we are beautiful divine creatures. We know that there is enough power in us to take care of our faith and be the heroes of our lives.

Following this principle, I decided to meet my inner Goddess. It started with sporadic acts like smiling to myself in the mirror, and looking at my body from a place of love instead of the good old judgement we tend to have. I wore clothes that made me feel flowy and sensual.

I then decided to formalise it into a morning ritual.

“Good morning Goddess”

 

 

 

 

 

Each morning, I wake-up to my Goddess ritual.

I open my eyes, I put some music on. No checking messages, yet! As soon as the music is on, I start touching the skin of my entire body, starting with my legs. It is, for me, a way to greet myself into a new day, and acknowledge the beauty of this divine body of mine. I touch my feet, my legs, my tummy, my chest, my shoulders, my arms, I let my hands softly greet my entire body. I finish with my face, my hair.

Then, I step into my bathroom, and when I look into the mirror, I greet the Goddess by a “Good morning, Goddess” and a smile.

This might seem simple, so simple. And it truly is. But it has changed so much in my relationship to myself.

They say, the way you start your day defines the rest of it.

Starting the day with the positive feeling of greeting your inner Goddess, that is some powerful start.

And, yes, in the beginning, it will probably seem weird, and you will probably have to fake it. The first days, I found it so difficult to linger in bed, touching my skin. And, how hard was it to look at myself in the mirror without my gaze going straight to my muffin top and judgemental thoughts arising! But it came, slowly and steadily, as it does with any practice.

Today, I cannot start a day without my self-love morning routine. I feel amazing after doing it. And the best thing is that it starts to span over my day – I notice that the way I look at myself in the mirror during the day is starting to be filled with the same benevolence and self-love it has in the morning.

That, for me, is the most beautiful gift to myself. With this, I feel empowered to face life and realise my visions and dreams. Because I know I am at peace with my co-pilot: myself.

Mental Health: Overcoming the Stigma

 

It wasn’t long ago when talking about mental health was considered uncouth. If you were struggling with an issue like depression, addiction, or anxiety, you were expected to shut up and bottle it all inside. While some people still face this pressure to keep it to themselves, the conversation is growing. In 2018, several NBA players including Channing Frye, DeMar DeRozan and Kevin Love opened up about their mental health struggles. The league responded with an improved mental health program to address the needs of its players.

 

You may be thinking, “Why do all these basketball players have mental health problems? What is it about the NBA?” Of course, playing basketball doesn’t cause depression or anxiety. These players are simply using their platform to help remove the stigma associated with the difficult issues that we all have. Everyone everywhere struggles with their mental health at some point in their life, we just don’t talk about it. Since we don’t talk openly about this issue, most people don’t even know how to care for themselves when dealing with mental health struggles.

 

If your mental health problems are getting in the way of living a happy and productive life, it is important to talk to a doctor about your symptoms immediately. Your physician can recommend a number of treatments including medication, talk therapy, psychotherapy, meditation and lifestyle changes.

 

Self-Care for Mental Health

 

An important aspect of treating mental illness is practicing daily self-care. Mental health problems often distract us from doing the little things for our own good. A person dealing with depression and anxiety may forgo hygiene, nutrition, and sleep while struggling with their problems. By practicing self-care in even the most basic ways, you can help alleviate symptoms of mental health problems while you explore options for treatment.

 

Avoid Drugs and Alcohol

 

All the stigma around mental health has lead a lot of people to try self-medicating with alcohol and depression. But substance abuse only makes mental health problems worse. In fact, it can lead to addiction — a mental health issue and physical disease all rolled into one. Avoid turning to drugs and alcohol as a way to cope and consider going into rehabilitation if you fear your drug or alcohol use has already gotten out of control.

 

Practice Healthy Sleep Habits

 

When you are struggling with mental health issues, quality sleep is one of the first things to go. Some people oversleep which causes fatigue, back pain, weight gain and headaches. Other people develop insomnia, a disorder with its own troubling consequences. Establishing a routine is the best way to avoid over and undersleeping. Make it a point to go to bed at the same time every night and wake up at a consistent hour each morning. An hour before your bedtime, start winding down by turning off electronics, sipping warm herbal tea and doing an activity that allows the mind to unwind such as coloring, reading or meditating.

 

Reduce Stress

 

Life is about balance, and if you are going at 100 percent all day, everyday, you will eventually burn out.

 

  • Make your home a sanctuary separated from work so your mind knows to switch off the cortisol once you walk through the door.
  • Pick up a hobby that improves mindfulness like meditation, yoga, or painting.
  • Exercise releases dopamine, serotonin and endorphins in the body to release stress and improve your overall mood.

 

  • Engage in positive thinking. Staying optimistic is an effective way to manage stress.

 

***

 

Everyone struggles with mental health issues, but the stigma surrounding them prevents us from having a conversation about them. Those dealing with serious issues should talk to a physician about treatment options. It’s important to embrace positive routines to help maintain our mental health in our day-to-day lives.

I’m Slacking Again

I’m slacking again on blog posts – which is odd because technically, I’m on summer vacation.  I’m still dealing with the drama of the deer running into my car.  It’s really broken, but I’m not, so that’s good.  I’m also taking a class this summer which for some reason, is kicking my ass.  Plus it’s summer and I’m feeling lazy, lol.  All these things are combining to make it so I can’t get out of my own way and get anything done.  And because of that, the blog posts are slacking off.  No excuses, it is what it is.  I’m slacking again and it’s just the way it is lol.

But as I sit here and think and type, I realize that not only am I slacking again on blog posts, I’m slacking on life.  There are lots of things I should be doing, and I’m not.  Maybe it’s just going to be the summer of slacking. But here’s the positive spin to all of it.  I’m slacking and it’s okay.  I’m getting my school work done, and I’m getting my life responsibilities done.  I can’t be perfect, and that’s okay.

I’m going to try and be better.  I’ll share the quotes from this week so far, and hopefully next week will be better.  So I’ll get yesterday’s and today’s posts done, and I have a couple of guest posts to share with you all from some really great writers.  Hopefully I’ll go from I’m slacking again to I’m getting it done.

 

 

It was a Speed Bump of Epic Proportions

Tuesday

Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.– William James

So I took a couple of unscheduled days off this week. I got hit with some crappy news, that threw me for a loop, and I needed time to regroup and it was a speedbump of epic proportionscome to terms with it.  It was a speed bump of epic proportions. What’s interesting is the quotes for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday ALL work with this post, so I’m going to use them all!

Wednesday

You have three choices in life: give up, give in, or give it all you’ve got! – Unknown

If I had done what certain people had wanted, I would have tucked my proverbial tail between my legs, packed my bags and moved on.  That’s what other people wanted, but it’s not what I wanted.  I decided to fight for what I wanted, and fight hard.  It’s going to be an uphill battle, but I’m going to give it all I’ve got.

Thursday

You have to accept whatever comes and the only important thing is that you meet it with courage and with the best that you have to give. – Eleanor Roosevelt

It’s hard when you have a clear plan for what you want, where you’re going and how you’re going to get there, and life throws in one of those speed bumps or road blocks. When that happens, sometimes the best thing you can do is stop, take stock of the situation and formulate a new plan. And that is exactly what I’ve been doing during my little hiatus. I hit a speed bump of epic proportions and I had to figure out a new plan.

Friday

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face. – Eleanor Roosevelt

Now here’s the thing, I encountered this speed bump of epic proportions, and yes, it threw me for a loop.  I stumbled, I even fell, but what I didn’t do was give up.  I fought back.  I looked at the person who put this speed bump in place and I gave her the figurative finger.  In doing so, I made an enemy out of someone I really couldn’t afford to have mad at me.  But I made a choice and with every choice there are positives and negatives.  That’s one of the negatives.

Saturday

Wisdom is knowing what to do; virtue is doing it. ~ David Jordan

Did I make the right choice?  I don’t know.  I really don’t.  What I did do is make a decision, and I am going to do my best to meet the new challenges that I will face because of my decision.  I am going to have to prove myself over and over again, and I have people that will be waiting to pounce on the slightest mistake.  I’m okay with that thought.  Why?  Because I know that I will be putting forth my best effort, and when it comes right down to it, that’s all anybody can do. So I’m going to conquer that speed bump of epic proportions, and who knows, what’s on the other side may be even better.

The Pain of Anxiety

Who among us hasn’t felt anxious before.  But feeling anxious about something is a far different thing than dealing with ongoing anxiety.  If you’re in this boat, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

As you know, I’m a HUGE fan of Karen Salmansohn, everything this woman writes really resonates with me.  She is an amazing author and speaker and she has so much to share, and some of what she has to share deals with the pain of anxiety.  Karen doesn’t want any of us to deal with this pain, and in fact, she’s created this really awesome course that helps people to deal with it.

Karen has made this amazing video series to help people deal with anxiety, and she offers 42 stress reducing tools that are all research backed.

The training happens in short bursts – only 3 to 10 minutes per video – and can be enjoyed on infinite devices – cellphones, iPads, computers, oh my!

Check out Karen’s Anxiety Cure and see if it’s right for you.  What’s really cool is Karen is making an awesome offer.  You can try out the Anxiety Cure and if you find that it’s not right for you, you can request a refund!  How sweet is that?  But if it works for you, that’s even better, and you’ll have an opportunity to make some huge improvements to your life.

Addiction and Treatment

 

Addiction is a disease affecting millions of people all over the world. There’s no one main factor that can predict if a person will struggle with substance abuse. A combination of genetic, environmental and developmental influences generally contribute to a person’s inclination towards addiction. While the best solution is prevention, there is hope for people who find themselves in the throes of this chronic disease characterized by compulsive drug or alcohol use.

 

Substance abuse treatments help addicts cease their drug use, stay drug-free and reintegrate into society as a healthy and productive person. There are various different methods of addiction treatment, but the principles behind them are essentially the same. Effective treatment doesn’t just remove drugs from the equation, it also addresses the various mental and emotional issues behind a person’s proclivity towards self-destructive behaviors. Detoxification is only the first step; patients also need behavioral therapy and counseling to help identify stressors or triggers that contribute to their addiction. Often medication is also administered to help relieve withdrawal symptoms and restore balance to neurochemicals.

Life After Treatment

 

Whether you admit yourself into an inpatient treatment or you simply begin going to a group, life after treatment is markedly different compared to how it was when using drugs or alcohol. As addiction tends to overtake a person’s way of living, addicts have to figure out what their lives mean after becoming sober. Often they have to cut off certain places and people while making major changes including finding employment or a residence. It’s a big adjustment, for sure. But with these helpful tips and habits, life after addiction is manageable.

 

  • Positive thinking is paramount. Unfortunately, the damage drugs and alcohol inflict on the addict’s life make positivity counterintuitive. To reframe a negative mindset, identify the inner monologue that contributes to negative thoughts. Once you’ve identified the monologue, you can figure out what in life triggers these thoughts. Identifying negative thoughts and their triggers gives you the power to tell yourself “stop” once they begin.
  • Find the right place to live after rehab in order to encourage sober living. As Redfin.com explains, “You’ll want to find a place that helps you create a healthy, consistent routine without throwing you into the paths of old triggers. You’ll also want a loving environment to rebuild your relationships and bond with your family, a place where you can heal and focus on your recovery.” Avoid living situations that permit sneaky and destructive behaviors that lead to substance abuse.
  • Exercise is a healthy habit many addicts turn to when in recovery. Not only does physical activity release stress when facing triggers, it also plays a part in balancing neurochemicals and hormones misaligned due to drug abuse. Exercising stimulates the same reward center in the brain that drugs and alcohol stimulate. That activity helps to ease cravings and makes recovery more comfortable for the addict.
  • Meditation has a reputation of being something only New Age hippies do, but, in fact, it is a not-so-secret tool many of the world’s most successful people use to deal with stress and anxiety. Create a space in your home where you can be alone without distractions. Spend 10 to 20 minutes a day sitting in quiet while meditating. Focus on breathing naturally and let thoughts enter and exit your mind as they come while returning your attention to your breath any time it wanders.

 

***

 

Addiction is a serious disease that damages a person’s mind, body and life overall. There are many different paths to recovery, but life after treatment is markedly different than life before. To facilitate sober living, it is important to implement healthy habits that help balance the body and mind. Positive thinking takes a lot of work, but with time and focus you can rewire your brain to stop negative loops of self-doubt and hatred. Picking the right environment for life after recovery prevents falling back into old habits. Furthermore, exercise and meditation are two habits that can help balance the mind and body for comfort and happiness.

 

 

Sometimes, I Wonder Why

Sometimes, I wonder why.  No that would be a lie, I wonder why, all the time.  I wonder why about a lot of things.  Today I am wondering why about Think Positive 30.

 

Why am I doing this?

That is a very good question.  I started out doing this for me, and for a dear, wonderful friend.  You can read the story in the about section, but the abridged version is we were whiny.  Our blogs were filled with negative crap, and she decided to post one positive thing a day.  Why?  Because all that negativity was bringing us down.

I made a blog specifically for that, and Think Positive 30 was born.  From the blog (not this one) it morphed into a website thinkpositive30.com, and a mailing list.  I loved the mailing list.  But my web host kept flagging me for spam, even though people had to sign up for the email list.  I loved the email list beyond belief. It was a lot of work, but I loved it. But the flagging made me look for a different way to do it.

I found the list I’m using now, Mail Chimp.  It’s an amazing list, but it’s not free.  To send the Daily Positive Thought out to my subscribers on a daily basis was going to cost money.  Lots of money. To send out the Daily Positive Thought it was going to cost me $15.00 a month.  I can’t swing that so I decided to send out one email a week with 7 positive thoughts.  One for each day.  It’s not perfect, but it works.

Why Am I telling you this?

Not to ask for money.  Just a little back story into my Why question for the day.  This morning I saw a post on Facebook and someone was saying they sent a hoodie from their store to a YouTuber who has over a million subscribers.  The YouTuber emailed back and said they were going to wear the hoodie on their show and give a shout out to the person on Facebook and his shop.  I think that’s great, and it leads into my why for this morning.  It’s a two fold why I think.

Why are some people more successful than others?

How does it happen? What do they do more successfully than other people do?  Why are they able to find their niche and help it explode into a way to make money?  Is it because they don’t feel like they have any other options, or is it because they think they have every option in the world?  I’m beginning to think it’s the second thing.  If you’re doing something out of a sense of desperation, you may be successful, but I think your fears and desperation will get in your way and you won’t be as successful as you think

If you approach something with the mindset that you have a thousand different options open to you, you’ll be more successful.  When you act like you have all these options available to you, all these options become available to you. Which brings me to my next why.

Why can’t I make this happen?

I’m a huge fan of the Law of Attraction.  I don’t think that’s a secret.  Simply put it states Ask (put it out to the universe), Believe (believe you’re going ask believe receiveto get it) and Receive (wait for it to come.)  There is a missing step, you can’t just sit there and do nothing. If you want something, you have to work for it.  Effort is required on your part.  You shouldn’t try and control everything, but you do have to put in effort.  I’m okay with that part.  I struggle with the Believe portion.

How do you believe you have a million dollars in the bank when you’re struggling to pay the bills?  How do you believe you’re driving the car of your dreams when your car is in the shop?  That how is my why.  I know these people who are super successful have always believed that they will be.  This all comes back to my little baby of a website ThinkPositive30.com.  Sometimes I wonder why I am doing it, and sometimes I wonder why people care.

Well the answer to the second question is, I don’t know if people care.  I don’t get a lot of feedback here comment wise.  I also have a facebook group, facebook page, and an instagram page.  None of them have a lot of interaction with people, a little, but not a lot.  Sometimes I wonder what I’m doing wrong that I don’t have a lot of feedback and then I realized something.  If I touch one person, help one person think in a more positive manner, it’s a win.  As to the why I am doing it, that’s easy.  I do it for me. To help me be a more positive person.

So I’m going to continue.  I’ll continue with the website and the facebook and instagram.  I’ll keep the mailing list going.  And more importantly I’m going to work on my believing in the believe portion  of Ask Believe Receive.  If I can believe in God (and I do) I can certainly believe that good things are coming to me and that I can and do make a difference with ThinkPositive30.com  And if I can do it, so can you!

Be a No Drama Llama!

Don't be a drama llamaProtect yourself. Keep your distance from negative people and their drama. They have a problem for every solution. – Karen Salmansohn

I am not a fan of the drama.  In fact in my classroom,  I have a sign declaring it a Drama Free Zone.  To my way of thinking, life is challenging enough without dealing with drama from other people.  It comes at us from all sides.  It comes from our friends and our family, our co-workers and our neighbors.  These people are veritable energy suckers.  They can and do suck the life right out of us.  On a daily basis, I have students walking in to my classroom saying so-and-so said or did this, or he posted that on snap chat, or she said this about me in a text message.  Idon't be a drama llamat’s overwhelming and the drama llamas do their very best to suck us in.

Their drama can sometimes turn you into a drama llama yourself.  And seriously, do you have time for that?  I’m going to guess the answer to that is no you don’t.  Well guess what, you don’t have to deal with the drama llamas any more! It’s time to drop the drama!  Stop allowing crazy-makers, game-players, truth-manipulators, gossip-mongers, conflict-stirrers and bad communicators to drain you of joy, energy and time!  Plus make sure you’re not accidentally contributing to or prolonging any drama.  But how?

Karen Salmansohn is offering an amazing class called Be a No Drama Llama.   This course will help you you to not to associate with the drama.  It will teach you how to not invite the drama into your life, and more importantly how not to create MORE drama!  Don’t be a drama llama.  Find out how to stop the drama from taking over your life.  Seriously, do you have time for drama? No, of course you don’t.  Your life, your time is too important to let other people infect you with their drama and bring you down.  Check out Karen’s class.  This class regularly costs $149.00 but for a very limited time, she is offering the class for only $49.00.  It’s an amazing offer and too good to pass up. Click here to see everything this class offers. Get ready to cut the drama from your life.  Be a NO DRAMA LLAMA!

 

 

I Love Ted

Yesterday, I was scrolling through Facebook when I came across a Ted Talk by Susan David. I watched it, and really enjoyed it, and then I moved on to something else. But I didn’t stop thinking about it. It was percolating in the back of my mind as I connected it to this, that, and the other, including a blog post I wrote this week.  Dr. David, of course, spoke far more eloquently than I wrote, and I really think it’s worth watching.  So press play, and then let me know what you think 🙂

Fun Ways to ROCK Your Sober Halloween Party

Hey everyone – we have another awesome guest post from Constance at Recoverywell.org

Fun Ways to Rock Your Sober Halloween Party

 

Photo via Pixabay

 

Halloween is right around the corner, marking the first end-of-the-year holiday that millions of people across the country celebrate, with jack-o-lanterns, loads of candy, and an astonishing variety of spooky events to host and attend. However, for people in addiction recovery, particularly those who are freshly sober, it can be hard to figure out how to spend the holiday without succumbing to temptation.

 

The truth is, as many long-time sober addicts who still love to throw a festive party will tell you, celebrating without alcohol or drugs can significantly enhance your experience of Halloween, rather than make you feel like you don’t fit into the costumed holiday scene. Yes, alcohol doesn’t have to be part of the picture. And you really can throw a sober and fun Halloween bash of your own.

 

Here are five games to consider when hosting a sober Halloween party, for a howlingly good time:

 

  1. Pumpkin Carving Contest

 

Pumpkin-carving is one of the ultimate Halloween traditions. For your alcohol-free party, buy a load of small-sized pumpkins that guests can comfortably take home with them, and set out carving knives and small festive candles on a large table ready with bowls at the ready for pumpkin guts. Have your guests carve their own Halloween-themed designs, and at the end of the evening, give out prizes for the most impressive creation. Like decorating the Christmas tree or dyeing Easter eggs, no Halloween party is complete without a nod to traditional pumpkin carving.

 

  1. Costume Contest

 

It’s the time of year when you can dress up as anyone or anything you want, and some people take the task seriously. Why not invite your friends who are dedicated costume dressers and everyone else who “dabbles” in the art to come all dressed up to the party? Sponsor a costume contest to motivate the shy and bashful to go for the ultimate prize. You can have guests nominate the best costume, collect the votes, and give out prizes to the winners. To vary up the awarding segment of your party, give out prizes for most creative costume, scariest costume, best couples costume, and so on.

 

  1. Host A Murder Mystery Dinner

 

This one is for those who want a small, more intimate kind of party. The idea here, which will require a lot of planning – be forewarned – is to conduct a murder mystery dinner. Basically, each new guest that arrives is assigned a role, and throughout the dinner, players must guess who is the killer and who is secretly the victim. Variations include a Clue kind of theme to a Pretty Little Liars set up.

 

  1. Have Everyone Tell Scary Stories

 

A familiar pastime during Halloween of years past when you were a kid, was to swap scary stories while passing around the flashlight in your friend’s basement. Such stories probably scared the daylights out of you then, which can be fun to do to others. A tradition that spans centuries, swapping ghost stories is a terrific way to generate laughs and spine-tingling reactions, while entertaining guests all around.

 

The Takeaway

 

Putting yourself out there to throw an alcohol-free Halloween bash at your home takes a bit of courage when recovery leaves you feeling sensitive to the connection in your mind between partying and consuming alcohol. However, by inviting supportive friends and people who live a 100% healthy lifestyle and don’t imbibe at all, you’re giving yourself permission to try out a new kind of festive form of celebrating without dangerous substances present.

Though different, and only if the party is organized right, you should find it comparatively fun to the alcohol-laden parties of your past. If anything, congratulate yourself on trying something new and exercising that festive side of yourself.
