Summer Solstice

Happy Summer Solstice, Beautiful People. I’ve had a pretty awesome day today – and I hope you have too. I put in a hard days work – but it’s what happen afterwards that matters.

ImageWhen 4PM hit, I headed out of the marketing world and into the natural health world. I went to Bloom Natural Health‘s Summer Solstice party in Encinitas. It cleared my mind completely. The evening’s activities were mediation, planting intentions on seed paper, releasing negative stuff in a fire, and healthy drinks galore from Beaming Vitality Bar. I had a great time!

[Beware: I’m going to get really real here] I planted my intentions in the Bloom garden for Imagesuccess. Financial, career, relationship are my goals for this year. For my release, I wrote down in crystal clear ink – Jealousy, Greed, and Judgement. Things I really need to let go of for sure. I’ve struggled with it for years. Now is the time I must let them go – for myself and those around me – and I’m ready to do it. Hello, Clarity – I’m ready for you!

So, now is the time where I turn it over to you – what are your intentions for the summer solstice of 2013? What are you releasing?

I appreciate BLOOM for having me at this wonderful gathering!

Wellness Wednesdays

For the first edition of Wellness Wednesdays….DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY. 

ImageThis week, I’m dedicated to my schedule of doing my “wellness” activities. I’m a virgo, so planning and having a schedule is KEY for me. Sundays/Mondays – take a walk, Tuesdays – meditate at the Chopra Center for their 4:45 class, Wednesdays – spin class with the kick-your-ass-party-til-you-puke spin instructor, James @ LA Fitness – Thursdays – kundalini at Soul of Yoga. 

Yep – my schedule is insane and very planned out – but I LOVE throwing little things into my routine like, making something I find on Pinterest, jamming out to the song of the summer [Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke] really loud in my car to and from work, and burning incense while straightening up my house. 

I’m going to go into detail with all of these lovely things and more – so stay tuned!
