Bliss Diary – July 11, 2015

By being true to all sides of your nature, you acknowledge that you can be self-confident, active and strong, that you can nurture without being weak, that you can be wild and instinctual, as well as calm and reasoning, and that you have a beautiful darkness within, a depth beyond the mundane world. — Miranda Gray, “Red Moon”

Body Goodness:  I loved going to the workout class this morning. So much fun! My inner athlete was in bliss. I’ve been wanting to go for awhile and since I’m in the communication/ collaboration part of my menstrual cycle it’s the perfect time to try something new. 🙂 I feel like my energy is getting better and better too, which is exciting. I also got a colonic.

Mind/Heart/Spirit Goodness: Being true to all sides of our nature…this was in my heart and mind today. Seeing all the thoughts that float through my mind about everything. Not all of them are nice and “spiritual.” But, I’ve found that part of honoring myself is to let them be there without shame/guilt or thinking I shouldn’t even be having them.

We all have judgements, it’s part of being human. But, we don’t have to believe them or even repress them. Just notice. A lot of our thoughts are just the conditioning we’ve all had, not who we are. To quote Allan Lokos: Don’t believe everything you think. Thoughts are just that – thoughts. Letting thoughts just be thoughts. Yes! I’m in! 🙂

Someone who truly inspires this way of living is my dear friend and mentor, Catherine Ingram. Dwelling in this place I felt moved to listen to some of her audios. I am so thankful to have her in my life. She is the embodiment of presence and her wisdom has been a gift. Every time I talk with her or listen to her I feel a softening…a relaxing into an ease of being. I know she has diligently practiced over the years and it shows in who she is and how she lives. Basking in her essence/beingness inspires me to be more gentle, kind and tender on this journey. There is always a jewel in whatever moment we are in.

Gratitude & Appreciation: I am grateful for our neighbor. Our dog got out and was running in the street and he saved him. So so so grateful!!  I am grateful for colonics and Lissa, my awesome therapist. I am grateful for the sweet park right by our house. I am grateful for Emerson and Brian, they make my life so much richer. I am grateful for my B’s support with E so I could have a mini self-care morning. #godads! I am grateful for all the laughter I experienced today (+ every day). I am grateful for all the people I continuously learn from. #thankyou

  1. Walking is such a simple, yet perfect way to honor your body and I love that you fit in small increments in your day. Little do most people know that THIS GOES A LONG WAY in body and mind. Thank you for sharing this lovely meditation!
