Stress is one of the main Spirit killers. And I've turned to meditation to help shed and ease the stress levels. Now, granted I'm blessed in that I really don't have a lot of stress in my life but there are those days when sometimes things just get to you.
I found a guided meditation called THE LOVING KINDNESS MEDITATION, which takes you through a step by step cleanse and restore. The first time I tried it I didn't know what to expect. Now if I just give in to the voice and music and relax, I can really open up to the guidance given and really absorb the practice.
Here's the link to check out the info on the CD by BILLIE TOPA TATE. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Hit The Bricks ...

Today I went to the gym. It's been a while since I've been to the gym and it felt great! I only did the elliptical for 30 minutes and my legs felt wobbly afterward but it did feel good to sweat it out. I gotta keep the momentum going on shedding fat. Then I've gotta gain muscle. I gotta be sexy by June 1st, 2010; because it's my birthday and I gotta be HOT!!!

My New Mantra ...

This lil ditti has been singing over and over in my head, so I've decided that it should be my new mantra; at least for a little while.
I didn't come up with this chant and I don't knwo where I got it from but it totally works! Don't you think? Everytime I hear it go off in my head; which is so random, I think about what I have been eating. Espcecially at bed time. I've gone to bed for the last 4 nights hungry. I think it's making a difference. We'll see.

Paths To Relief ...

I've recently learned that my anger release is the first step to a happy healthy me. As far as how I should go about my release is totally up to me, but I think I have some ideas
There are a lot of therapies that I already know and have practiced before; like mantra chants, candles, incense burning, music, coloring books & crayons and prayer/wish/meditation beads.
So, I'm gonna do what I know first to calm myself, see how I feel and go from there. So many paths to choose from I don't know which to try first. I'm kind of excited just from these thoughts coming from me out loud.

A Discovery ...

I guess that on some level I've always known it but, I just realized that my Anger is the first place I need to work on to kick off my Good Health focus.
I mean sometimes I spout off for no reason or swear just because I can. Other times I can't stand being near people because they irritate me and other times certain people just piss me off.
So I have to learn not to be so angry so much. Or better yet get myself back to the old happy go lucky Me!

A New Found Purpose ...

I just realized what I could use this blog for! I am going to track my personal growth in my own overall health! Now, I do understand that "Health" is a huge spectrum. There's the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual parts that all make up a well rounded person's good health. And I will try to keep you posted in my own personal discoveries, with pics and videos to help me illustrate my progress. Don't blink, you might miss something!

Cooking ...

For the very first time ever I tried to make Mexican rice yesterday. And it turned out pretty good but I used more water than I should've. Anyhow, the next time I try it I'll use less water and try to remember the recipe I used as far as the spices and flavorings. I'm just glad it got eaten.
