Intent of the Day: Love Looks Like

town

2016 was a particularly stressful year for many of us. Families and friends were divided politically, socially, geographically and that can force us to reconsider all we took for granted and expected from our relationships. What if we don’t agree? What does that mean for all of us? While this can feel scary, we want to consider a different and more empowering question. What will love look like when it’s full of intent?

We are excited about the opportunity to take an active role in deciding what love will look like for us. We are excited to be purposeful when it comes to loving those around us and beyond. To love with intent is to give our best effort at making a difference.
Today our intent is to decide what love will look like for us.

You too? Consider what it’ll look like to love these 3 groups of people in your life: Continue reading

You might be on vacation but it doesn’t mean you’re coming back refreshed. If you spent your time with family and friends catching up on all the things you miss year-round, you’re not alone.

We’re going to spend the last few days of 2016 trying to catch up on some zzz’s so we enter the new year ready and rested.

5 Ways You Can Sustain Your New Year’s Resolutions

firework

The end of the year is nearly here, and if you are planning to set a New Year’s resolution you are not alone. According to this Forbes article, over 40 percent of Americans make resolutions; however, after six months only 46 percent of people are able to maintain their goals. In other words, the odds are not in your favor, yet, if you are willing to change your mindset the chance of sustaining your resolutions greatly improves.

Further, the good news is that change is possible. The brain science behind neuroplasticity teaches that our brains are able not only to adapt to change, but are able to form new connections. With training and practice our brain is able to create new patterns.

There are things you can do to optimize the chance you can succeed and reach your goals.

Here are Five Things to Help You Sustain Your New Year’s resolutions: Continue reading

Tired of the same old, same old? We’ve probably all been there but the mind is a difficult thing to change. Circumstances aren’t always within our control and that can feel very disabling. At the core, sometimes our greatest fear is that we aren’t capable of change, but what if this year we started thinking about what newness we could welcome into our lives? What new things excite you and get your wheels turning? What has felt impossible and how can you start to move in that direction? Our intent today is to turn our minds to those questions and commit to explore new things in the new year.

You too? Consider these three places for newness in your life: Continue reading

Featured Intent: Healed from the Past

screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-9-30-53-pm

Over and over we’ve found ourselves in the same place. Maybe that place is one of positivity and abundance. We’re surrounded by wise and kind people who lift us up and support us. Perhaps it’s the opposite. We continue to find ourselves in the same mess. We’re repeating patterns that have existed longer than we can remember and the hard part is imagining a life where they aren’t a part of us.

Are some of us just lucky? And does it mean there is no hope if we’re one of the unfortunate folks who pulled the short straw of struggle?

We believe that with focus, intent and genuine desire, a pattern is something that can be overcome if it is destructive. We believe that sometimes, before you can move forward, you have to deal with the past accurately and honestly. This can mean seeking or offering forgiveness. This can mean shining a light on dark corners we had long accepted as forgotten. This can mean voicing feelings and truth we didn’t even know existed.

But we’re ready for a different future so today our intent is to be healed from the past.

Tomorrow is election day in the US and many are nervous about what the future will hold. Will it be the end of the world at the strike of midnight? Will it be the answers to all our hopes and dreams?

It is with intention that we plan to build something we’re proud of.

Intent of the Day: Healing Words

fullsizerender-1

Healing comes in many forms. In medication. In nature. With time and space. Today we explore the healing that comes from the words we receive and speak. As a culture, we’ve come to understand that words can harm. Telling a child that they’ll never grow up to be anything can have lasting implications and we can understand that correlation. But we don’t alway think about using our words with intention for positivity and healing. We don’t always consider how much we say that has no real nutritional value.

“I guess we’ll see…”
“I don’t know…”
“Who knows?…”

We absolve ourselves from taking a position of strength and health and wholeness. So, today, we choose to use our words with intention for healing.

Right there with us? Here are 3 resources to help: Continue reading

Do you know there is evidence of sunlight and whole foods being able to send breast cancer into remission? That is crazy amount of healing! As we explore eating and aligning our bodies, we naturally find ourselves learning more and more about what this earth has to offer in the way of remedies and preventative care. Whether it’s sunlight, essential oils, food, stretching, and everything in between, there is so much to learn about restoring and repairing the human body and much of it can be done naturally! So our intent is to do just that- to heal naturally.

Intent of the Day: Accept What You Can Do

Our intent today is inspired by the many times we’ve ended the day feeling dissatisfied, unproductive and not enough. What do you do when you feel like you don’t measure up? Our intent is to instead accept what we CAN do. Maybe it was one huge task, a bunch of small tasks or that you just got out of bed today. Accept the progress you’ve made. Celebrate the ways you showed up today and the strength you gained since the day before. Today is the building block for tomorrow!

Are you struggling with where you are in this moment?
Here are some resources to help: Continue reading

10 Things I Learned from Having Deepak Chopra As My Mentor

deepak-1
I’m not famous, nor do I have a recognizable last name and I’m not related to any powerful individual, so when Deepak Chopra, MD, FACP replied to my tweet I assumed it was a member of his staff. This was in the fall of 2013. We exchanged emails for a few weeks before I discovered it was actually Deepak himself writing me. Then in January of 2014, he generously agreed to meet me in his New York office. Since this time, I’ve had the good fortune of having Deepak as my mentor and friend.

Here are ten things I’ve learned from having Deepak Chopra as a mentor:
