I’m really excited about a lot of new things lately, so I thought today I’d take the chance to share them with you! I just feel like things have been really coming together lately, and I’m starting to discover what really works for me.
What I’m Loving: Nutrition
Since doing Banana Island, I’ve really had my eyes opened to the amazing power of the high carb/low fat (a.k.a. 80/10/10) lifestyle. I’m still just getting into it and I don’t see me ever going all the way, but basically it is a diet that emphasizes raw fruits and vegetables. 80% of calories come from carbs, 10% from protein, 10% from fat. I just had such a cool experience on Banana Island that I really want to transition more of my diet to this style of eating. I just bought Ellen Fisher’s eBook. Sidenote: she’s raising her kids as raw vegans (she has a 2 year old boy named Elvis, and she’s pregnant ), and I find that super interesting.
What I’m Loving: Reading
I’m all about sexual energy and tantra lately, and the two books I’m in love with right now are Sheri Winston’s Women’s Anatomy of Arousal and Dr. Shelly Persad’s Orgasmical Medicine (available for free online- if you can’t find it, send me a message and I’ll email it to you). These books are about so much more than sex- they are about the energy that fuels and inspires our lives, and they stand for an amazing way of living.
What I’m Loving: Energy
I’m loving EFT more than ever these days and am using it on myself a lot. Contact me if you’re interested in having a session.
What I’m Loving: Spirituality
I started on A Course in Miracles about a year and a half ago, but it’s the kind of thing that I get really into and then take a break from. I haven’t picked up my book in probably six months, but recently I was thinking about a lot and kind of craving it, so I’ve started on the workbook again and am loving it more than ever. Forcing yourself into spiritual study is not usually a good idea- your inner guidance system will let you know when it’s time (I wish the happy face emojis didn’t look so creepy on wordpress!)
What I’m Loving: Exercise
As I wrote about before, I’ve had a love/hate relationship with exercise in the past. I’ve kind of enjoyed it but never found something I genuinely loved doing until recently.
My new exercise passion is Kundalini Yoga. It’s very different than regular yoga, and it uses kriyas (basically specific repetitive action) to bring peace and spiritual life force into the body.
I came across it a few years ago through My Yoga Online, and actually hated it, but it’s been on my radar for awhile, and I started taking classes during my roadtrip, and was enamoured!
I’m now doing classes online, attending weekly classes with Sandra Briand, and am going to be incorporating it into the classes I’ll be teaching starting in January. I’m seriously considering taking my Kundalini training in the near-ish future.
Sign up for My Yoga Online, and check out their Kundalini classes (my favourites are the ones taught by Gurmuhk and Lindsey Lewis)
What I’m Loving: Natural Beauty
I’ve been straying from my beloved lemon and honey facemask lately and have been branching out. I’ve started a routine of doing a mini facial every Sunday, so I start with a sugar scrub (just mix a bit of water into a spoonful of sugar and rub it over my face and rinse), and then I apply a different facemask every week.
I’ve discovered that our local health food store has a whole bunch of superfood powders available for pay-by-the weight, so I got a small portion of a bunch of different ones. It’s so awesome! Anyways, I take a tsp of one of the powders and mix it with either honey or castor oil, apply it to my face and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Then I rinse it off and finish it off with some oil. So far I’ve made a beet root mask, a spirulina mask, a camu camu mask, and an acai berry mask! It really catches my Mom off guard when she comes around the corner and I’m sitting there with a completely green or red face :p
Ever since launching my first health program, The High Vibe Project (which I’m running again in December), I’ve been thinking a lot in terms of what feels high vibe to me. I think that term perfectly sums up the way I want to feel, and Kundalini, 80/10/10, Sexual Energy, EFT, and natural facials all feel very high vibe to me! I feel excited just writing about them !!!
