I'm a woman who believes that we can all change the world; one blog, one kind word, one helping hand at a time. We can create ripples; producing new waves of strength and hope to our lives and the lives of those around us...
We don't have to be politicians, millionaires or those otherwise in more widely recognized positions of power - to be empowered and to empower others.
When we give of ourselves we nurture the spirit of giving in our world, planting a seed that inspires an effort in individuals to be more then we are; giving us an opportunity to think beyond ourselves and our own lives. It can start a stir in the World Wide WEB of connection we are all tangled up in.
When we have a boss, a mom, a partner who is negative, this can often bring out the same in us, conversely one kind word can set in motion a flow of such positive gifts that can have the power to override this "kick the dog system" and replace it with something that can effect someone else's day and in turn those around them...and if enough participate...the world.
Myself, I want my life and my career to embody this philosophy. I have dreamed of being a healer since I was a small child, where my sleeping hours would sometimes be filled with images of my hands holding an outpouring of white light. I want to have my own practice where I combine massage that is more movement therapy, sensory integration, Hypnotherapy,breath therapy, and Morita Therapy (which, rather then talk therapy is about getting off your er padded um couch, and doing - whatever it is you want to and feel you can't). Sounds like a lot but each is complimentary of the other.
A practice with a special mission; teach people how to Relax and include balance in their lives. This is also the subject of a book I will one day write and perhaps seminars I will have. . Many people think they know how to relax yet can't sleep, have high blood pressure, and stressful lives. They replace their body's natural ability with chemicals and pursuits that empty out their spirit. And others feel that there is no time to relax in their drive to succeed or put food on the table. I feel, and want to show, in my practice and my book, that the Art of Relaxation can help you stress less and profit more and in the process not alienate your family or never see them.
I think of it as Spiritual CPR - for everyone from Executives to Moms. The last perhaps is a primary target audience. What many in caregiving professions (moms, teachers, nurses) don't realize is that the airlines have it exactly right. You know when the personnel tell you that should the need arise, give yourself oxygen first and then your child. So true in the spiritual sense as well. What isn't mentioned is how oxygen - breathing and how you do it is conducive to relaxation, concentration and so much more, in order to have more of yourself to give to others, its important to take a few breaths on your own.
So that you too, can be empowered to change lives, create waves, and provide a wind to stir up this world enough to make some positive change.
Special Random Tip: Want to indulge yourself or give the gift of relaxation to someone else but don't have a lot of money to spend? Take yourself or a friend to an accredited Massage Therapy School. The students will just have finish a rigorous course of study learning the body from the cellular level up. Schooling meant to prepare them both for the intense licensing exam and their own practice. And to weed out those not serious or not meant for this path.
Massage therapy not your thing? Try an Aveda School for some beautiful natural hair colouring and style. No harsh chemicals. Ask about other treatments as well. I've had my a luxurious facial which included a very healing massage. The price, like that of massage schools is lower - and if you use their exercise equipment to power their electricity - you get even more of a discount. That way, you can take care of both your exercise and your pampering for the day.
- All my work in the past prepared me for the "toughest job I'll ever love"- Mommy! So what do I do? I drown in laundry Marvel at how dishes & clutter can multiply- socks subtract. Repetitive tasks? Sweep several times a day. Find I'm folding laundry cleaning up the same books and toys so often&in the same place in some weird kind of deja vu. &in between I teachinspirelistenplay w/my little one. Thus the name of my blog-Math for Mommies: Add the number of times your child has lost his shoes made a mess brought home a stray bug as a pet surprised you delighted you while making you tear your hair out too! & of course subtract the # of good nights sleep you'll lose the er date nights you will no longer get &multiply by the things you'll forget & though it makes no sense: you've got mommy math. Really I'm not so great at things like math & the like yet I attract those who are-friends and exes - math/physics/computer geeks. Opposites attract&all that! What I really want is someone good w/words n all that- Artists, musicians&free thinkers-pls apply
