Every month you have your period, it can feel like you've had the breath knocked out of you. The journey of conception can feel crooked and windy. Practicing divine patience can be really challenging.

Goddess pose (variation) is one of my favorite postures to support women on the fertility journey. It allows for the downward flow of energy (apana), awareness and energy stimulates the pelvis/sacral chakra and the root chakra creating a profound sense of grounding and gentle goddess awakening.

Bring one hand to your heart and one hand to womb space and feel the energy flow between them. Notice if your torso is floating forward or you are rounding through your shoulders. Maybe there is a similar emotional, mental and spiritual heaviness. When you're ready, gently invite a lifting of the torso, a softening of the shoulders, an untucking of the chin, and/or extension of the spine, inviting a sense of hope and openness into your being.

The invitation? WOWD, is to practice divine patience.

Be strengthened. Be healed. Be empowered.

Monday Morning Mantra

I practice divine patience.

I am my father's child. Patience is not my ministry nor is it my gift. ๐Ÿ˜… I tend to lack the most patience with myself and with the unfolding of hopes, desires and dreams. But this is where I really need it, right?

I may be on this mantra for a few weeks!

I love providing Thai foot massage. It is amazing to watch women relax --really relax. I also appreciate the position of being at the feet.

Each time I sit at a woman's feet, I connect with a profound sense of humility and service. Each time, is an opportunity to use my gifts, skills and training as a healer.

The work I do matters.

โœจThe work I do matters.โœจ

Today is my Daddy's birthday. This is significant to my mantra today because he was largely responsible for instilling this belief in me as I started my career in pharmacy. He taught me that I had the ability to make a difference in the lives of the people I had the privilege of serving, directly or indirectly.

My career in pharmacy really started (21 years ago) in end-of-life care (hospice and palliative care). My role was to work with the team to manage patients' symptoms so that patients and families could be focused on what was really important to them and to participate in creating the space for peaceful transition. The work I did mattered.

It was doing this work that I became acutely aware of the mind-heart-spirit-body connection. My purpose continued, and still continues, to call me in different ways to have a deeper and more expanded understanding of this connection. The classes and services at WOWD aim to foster opportunities for women to connect on and with these layers.

Sometimes, as an entrepreneur, there are so many things to do that I can forget or lose sight of this. Does this ever happen to you?

Just as it was in 1999, so it is now. The work I do matters. Supporting and partnering with women in powerful self-care experiences that facilitate strengthening, healing and empowerment. Whether it is creating space to pause and breathe, or space to rest, or space to connect with self--it all matters.

The work I do matters.

What #mantra is brewing in your belly for this week?

Part of my purpose: to support women on their fertility journey.

One of the ways I do this is through Hannah's Flow. This is a group yoga class for women who may be frustrated and tired, hope may be diminished, or you may feel disconnected from your body and your heart. In this class, we create sacred space to rest, connect with your body and your heart, and simply be.

Join me at 5PM today and grant yourself permission to be supported through this practice where you may find moments of strengthening, healing and empowerment.

#WOWDWellnessWednesday

I shared a couple of weeks ago that I helped my neighbor's daughters with their tie-dye project. Needless to say, I still have residue of the dye on these fingers.

The lesson/reminder for me? To take the time to put on the necessary "gear" to protect and/or support myself as I walk in my purpose so that I don't carry a build up of negative residue or energy.

How do you protect and/or support yourself as you move in your purpose?

Monday Morning Mantra

I walk in my purpose.

Walking, moving and operating in purpose and calling become a way of being. It is not necessarily something that has an on/off switch. When I think about my life, past and present--I can see my purpose being revealed; my gifts, skills, talents and interests being cultivated; and an inner knowing and connection to it. Sometimes, purpose carries me in directions that require me to trust. Sometimes, purpose can seem so grand that it makes me nervous and I wonder and doubt. In these moments, I can fall back on "I believe I can, so I do!"

I walk in my purpose. Yep, that's my mantra and I'm sticking to it:)

What's your Monday Morning Mantra?

Citrine. I love this stone. It is often associated with wealth and abundance and is often referred to as the "success" stone. It has a vibrant energy that helps with positivity and its energy increases one's sense of personal power and self-confidence. It supports manifestation and can be used to clear imbalances and blockages of the solar plexus (manipura) chakra.

I believe I can, so I do! Citrine is a powerful stone to support this mantra.

WOWD Wellness Wednesday

In order for me to believe that I can and thereby do, my self-care game has to be on point! So I have to practice what I share. I absolutely love Reiki and its benefits and the truths that may be revealed. A few weeks ago, I recognized that I was craving a Reiki session (other than my own self-Reiki). So, I registered for a distant treatment with @thehomegirlhealer and it was EXACTLY what I needed.

Last Monday, I had a massage that had me snoring on the table, but left me energized when I finally got going again!

Taking care of myself increases my feelings of optimism, personal power and faith.

What self-care activity do you feel drawn to this week and what do you need to do to make it happen? Please share in the comments so that the WOWD community and I may encourage you!

07/22/2020

Participating in ritual and ceremony, with others in community or alone with myself, have a powerful impact on my faith, my sense of personal power and my ability to move and take action. For the last couple of full moons, I've joined in a full moon ceremony of release with a beautiful community. This week I will resume my spiritual baths. These facilitate the deeper work of my spirit that allow for manifestation in the spirit and the natural.

What rituals and ceremonies do you participate in and why? Please share in the comments.

If rituals and ceremony are new for you or if you've been practicing for some time, join us on Sunday, August 9th at 1PM for WOWD Wellness Sunday: Sacred Ritual & Ceremony. You can register using the link in my bio.

Dessert: pineapple-lemon-mint shake. Sweetened with dates, fortified with sea moss gel for some extra nutrition.

Yโ€™all, I am my fatherโ€™s child which means I LOVE sweets. Iโ€™m the girl who eats 3 hot glazed Krispy Kreme donuts back-to-back, or and endless number of those #traderjoes cookies. So, I decided it was time to get this under control and in June I started a 21-day sweet fast. Right at the end, I saw a post that it takes 21-days to form a habit, 90-days to make it a lifestyle. So Iโ€™m on the 90-day journey. I will be honestโ€”I had a slice of apple pie on Fatherโ€™s Day. My Luv had a Rice Krispy Treat from Noodles & Co. and I tasted it. To my surprise, I didnโ€™t feel like I was missing anything. As a matter of fact, it left a bad taste in my mouth!

So, Iโ€™ve been making little tears like this shake/smoothie or eating fresh fruit when I have a hankering for something sweet.

Whatโ€™s in your dessert bowl or glass?

This is such a caring, supportive, and loving place. While practicing yoga and after for the foot massage I felt so supported and empowered. After the session I literally FLOATED to the car. This experience was a game changer!
After my "Morning Vitality Flow", I am having a stress free day!!!
