2013 was a profound year for me. I had a spiritual awakening, and I found myself floating in universal, unconditional love. I did not use psychedelics or was in any other altered state. It happened naturally after meeting my twin flame. I heard about soul mates before, but the idea of the twin flame was new to me. The love I felt was not tied to him nor was coming from him but was ignited through meeting him and was available to me at all times, unconditionally. I was swimming in bliss and ultimate wisdom, outside of my body, as
I am personally not fond of the fitness industry today. It thrives on pain, and it favors and promotes a life and lifestyle that’s out of balance. Most people’s goal is to get in shape and look like fitness or supermodels. And there are plenty of businesses, even with all the different workout programs, that will promise just that. There are also different home workouts we can choose from. Do these workouts care about how tight most people’s chest or hips are from sitting all day long and slouching? Do these programs focus on what’s really happening in our society today?
I am sharing you my personal story about what I learned on my fitness journey and what inspired me to create Elevate Movement Therapy. Even though fitness has been a part of my life for a very long time, I continued to struggle with my weight, food and my self-image. I started playing tennis when I was 10 years old, and it became a main focus of my life for another 10 years. I grew up with the mindset that I had to work extremely hard if I wanted to achieve something in my life. Because of that, I took things to
Isabelle’s story In my last blog, I talked about how avoiding your feelings can hold you back in your weight loss goals. (If you haven’t read it yet, click HERE to read. If you want a permanent solution, you not only have to train your body and eat healthy, but you also have to train your mind and be emotionally and mentally fit. When you avoid your feelings, you’re not working with and through them, so you can’t get stronger by “dealing” with them. You’re doing the opposite. You’re losing your ability to feel them, understand and master them, and as a result,
When people want to lose weight, they focus a lot on exercising and changing eating habits, a good start and necessary to achieve a healthy and fit body. But is it enough? How about dealing with our emotions? Our emotions, beliefs and thoughts show up in our lives. So whatever you’ve created in your life so far is energy you carry within you. You act from this energy, and you make choices from it. YOU are your own energy. The problem is that most of the time, you don’t even know what the driving forces are because the fundamental emotional, mental
If you have been trying to lose weight and you did not achieve your goals, your weight loss approach might not be right for you. Years of experience have led me to understand why intense training or very strict diets don’t work for most people when they want to lose weight. Programs that aren’t reasonable and nourishing can throw your bodies out of homeostasis and damage them. A loving, caring, conscious approach that works on achieving balance and shaping the way you think about yourself and fitness will result in permanent, positive changes. If you want to make long-term changes, you
I started my Self-Love journey in 2010, when I was 32 years old and going through a rough time. One of my friends recommended I listen to Tony Robbins. On one of his programs, he asks the listener to write down ten things that they love about themselves. So there I was, sitting in front of the blank paper with a pen in my hand, searching, going deep within, trying to find something I loved about who I am. And there was nothing but the realization of how much I hated and resented myself. Most of my life I was not happy
