I caught a glimpse of my long lost triceps in the mirror at the gym today....who would’ve thought this would inspire a blog!
Some of you know that I recently started a year long "Sculpted Vegan" program to work on getting back in shape. I have strayed from time to time, but for most of my life since my double shoulder surgery when I was 16 years old, going to the gym and lifting weights has been a part of my life. I was that lone girl in the free weight section of the gym at Michigan State, and most other places I worked out.
When I first started Spirit of Strength 8 years ago (around when the above picture was taken), my intention was to help people be healthy in body, mind and soul. To be "Spirits of Strength". For the last couple of years I have been more focused on mind and soul. It's time to bring back the balance. I am grateful that meanwhile, after years of trying, I have also developed a love and appreciation of yoga. It helps me to achieve balance, integrating body, mind and soul.
I had forgotten how amazing it feels to have just worked my muscles and feel that surge of energy moving through my body. I have lost a lot of physical strength, and I have a long way to go, but I am excited about the journey. I will be sharing more along the way, in part to hold myself accountable, and in part hoping to inspire others to find a healthy balance of body, mind and soul.
Another theme that has been popping up recently in my personal life, as well as in mentorship and manifesting circles, is the subject of becoming more visible. So when I caught that glimpse of my tricep in the mirror at the gym this morning....first I thought, "dude....it's nice to see you, it's been awhile...". Then I thought, what a perfect paralell to the "becoming more visible" theme that is surfacing.
I recently attended an online group healing session with Jenny Schiltz (who is amazing BTW, I strongly recommend looking into what she offers if you feel nudged). When it was my turn, one of the things Jenny was directed to help me with was a throat chakra upgrade. The upgrade appears to have been successful. My soul is feeling the fire to become more vocal and visible.
This message about becoming visible is not just for me. What wisdom so you have to share? We are in a time where the world needs you to shine your light. To share you medicine and your magic. What can you do today that might inspire even just one person? An online post? A kind word in passing? A thank you or a job well done message? Or how about an "I Love you".
I will be sharing more about my journey back to balance in body, mind and soul and I would be honored if you would like to come along for the ride.
Thanks for taking the time to read....I Love You.
Believe in the Magic,
