Day 9 of MELT and Nourish with Yoga Challenge!
I have a client who has RSD/CRPS and she talked today about how the fine motor control of trying on clothes, the buttoning and zipping etc. , can set her symptoms off and into a full blown crash!
So, today I’m showing a great technique to mobilize this last joint in the fingers and thumb, Finger Compression. If you have problems with any finger actually flexing and extending, give it a friend (another finger) or use your other hand to help that joint move. The goal is to get it to move!!! Eventually you’ll notice it gets better over time!!! Love and Light!
I love Brene Brown and truly LOVE her research. She has the conversations our society wants to skirt around – vulnerability, blame, fear, shame, and how at the heart of wholeheartedness and true connection is the ability to make yourself vulnerable and to allow your true self to be seen – to take off the armor that you wear while around others!
Uhm, did I say I love her? Oh yes, I did already . . .
She says shame and addiction, violence, depression, etc., are so intertwined they can’t tell where one begins and one ends. When you shame someone for their behavior they will most likely engage in more of that behavior. The person you just shamed, will likely have the self talk of, “I’m so stupid. I’m so worthless, I always do this” . . . etc.
So today, I wonder what would happen to our relationships, every form they come in , if we actually show up, allow ourselves to be completely vulnerable, and to be seen, truly seen with all our flaws and all. I believe the more comfortable we are with ourselves, the less likely we are to want others to feel uncomfortable with themselves!
Lets be the change we wish to see in the world!
“We live in a world where most people still subscribe to the belief that shame is a good tool for keeping people in line. Not only is this wrong, but it’s dangerous. Shame is highly correlated with addiction, violence, aggression, depression, eating disorders, and bullying.” ― Brené Brown, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

Have you ever wondered how the Moon's cycles connect to your own life and inner rhythms? I always have. I remember the exact day when I talked to the moon and asked her to show me how she moves through me. I asked to know her, her rhythms, when she was in the sky,...

Are sleepless nights your norm? Find yourself flipping through TV channels watching infomercials at 3AM feeling plain frustrated? Are your days filled with endless coffee + RedBull (insert stimulant of choice)? Maybe you've even been down the Western route with...
