5 Wellness Tips in General, Love

rachel-divi-banner

Here are five of my favorite wellness practices you can implement into your daily life - from me to you!   1 - Create sacred mornings. Give yourself the time and space needed to have time to start each day off right. Light a candle, sit in meditation for a few minutes, practice yoga, eat a good breakfast. Set your intentions for the day! Rushing out the door sets a hectic tone for the day. Make your mornings sacred and the rest of the day will follow suit. 2 - Drink hot lemon water in...

Feeling Uninspired in General

sunset-21

Today is an uninspired day for me. I'm not sure why. I feel like blogging but I have nothing to say. I feel like writing but I don't know what to write. Sitting at a coffee shop with Dennis. Supposed to be doing emails, or writing, but kind of just sitting here instead. I know it's ok to have unproductive days! But it sucks on days when you actually want to be productive. Part of my new ways is that I fully go with the flow of where I am. I'm doing my absolute best...

109 World in Ecuador in General, Love, Retreats, Travel

109EcuadorBanner

  Here is an example of what life is like for people less fortunate than you and I. The people of Ecuador impacted by the major earthquake that took place this April are struggling for their lives. Most homes have completely disintegrated and families now live in make-shift houses created with tarp and pieces of metal. Many sleep in the dirt directly on the floor. Children are the ones who suffer the most - where do you turn to when you've lost everything? How do you start over when there is nothing left? Join 109...

Happiness is a Choice in Love

AnjaliMudra

Slowly learning how to separate myself from drama. Happiness is a choice, did you know? And with it comes the knowing that it's fleeting. Impossible to grasp. Passing. Everything moves all the time! This moment is so fucking beautiful, so precious, but it's not mine to keep. It's precious for that very reason; I don't know what will come next. I can't predict life and have come to the conclusion that most of it is out of my control and none of my business anyway. All I know is that in this moment... I am...

Let Yourself Feel in General, Love

Rachel-Ocean-Banner

I just want to scream at the ocean. The biggest change within me is that when I feel, I really feel. A lot. A lot and right away. I can't push things down below the surface anymore. I don't want to. No more smiling to assure others, no more pretending, no more saying "I'm fine" when I'm not. I've been so happy and at peace every day since I came home a week ago I almost forgot that feeling sadness is a part of being me, too. It's all there. Emotions come and go and...
