Whenever you see nature’s beautiful handiwork remember that you too have the power to create beauty, abundance, peace, and harmony. Living consciously means that you deliberately choose to uplift humanity with your thoughts, feelings, words, and actions.

Nature is the best example of what living in harmony means. She is always there for you, her health supports your own and her very existence is essential to life. The best way to appreciate these miraculous blessings is to live in your natural state of harmony.
“Don't live by your own rules, but in harmony with nature.” ~ Epictetus
Living in harmony with nature provides the earth element for creating heaven on earth. Being a source of light brings the fire element; having the ability to flow through life supports the water element; and breathing deeply enhances the air element.
Your physical self is associated with the element of earth as it represents grounding and a foundation for life. Respecting the earth is respecting your own body because the two are deeply intertwined. You can live in harmony by remembering to be one with nature.
Your mental self is associated with the element of fire. This element...
Your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energy is similar to horsepower. If you lose energy your human vehicle will not have the power it needs to run efficiently. When all four parts are operating together in harmony, you experience wholeness.
“The cure of many diseases remains unknown to the physicians of Greece because they do not study the whole person.” ~ Socrates
A whole person sees the body, mind, heart and spirit as equal partners in the business of being human. If one part is undervalued this causes a breakdown in the whole system. Be sure to give all four partners the sustained attention they deserve.
Your body is in charge of your physical well-being with its innate power to heal and regenerate. Think of the last time you cut your finger and how your skin naturally healed. Trust your body’s intrinsic ability to maintain health and restore wholeness.
Your mental well-being depends on the power of your mind to use both...

To be superhuman you need serenity to cultivate the superpower of mental clarity. This superpower aligns your body and mind with your heart and spirit to live in harmony. This raises your level of awareness from being conscious to superconscious.
“Calmness is a human superpower. The ability to not overreact or take things personally keeps your mind clear and your heart at peace.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz
Being superhuman takes discipline in order to transcend the ego and allow your soul to take charge of your life. The ego is your personality and the soul is your spirituality. You need stamina, commitment, courage and integrity to be extraordinarily human.
Stamina comes from the discipline of daily exercise and eating healthy. One of the superpowers of a superhuman is to be super health-conscious. Every move you make, every bite you take, determines the level of your physical vitality and overall wellbeing.

Your true nature is one with the earth. It is a symbiotic relationship between mother nature and human nature. Oneness is the realization that the earth and all of her inhabitants are in this human experience together to create a balanced way of life.
“Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Living in harmony with nature is at the core of a balanced life. When you have a healthy body, creative mind, loving heart and free spirit, you feel at one with nature. Taking care of yourself and the earth comes naturally when you’re in a state of balance.
Your body and the earth are your two greatest gifts because without them you wouldn’t be here. Just as the earth is home to billions of life forms, your body is home to billions of bacteria, viruses and fungi that serve to keep your body healthy. You can experience oneness with nature by taking care of your gut microbiome and the...

There is magic in living a healthy life. Gifts that focus on health show how much you care. Sharing love this way supports in the creation of a healthy body, mind, heart and spirit and magically brings more light into the world.
“Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love!”
~ Hamilton Wright Mabie
The magic of Christmas is in remembering what really matters. Let the message of love be delivered through every gift and act of kindness. It's the perfect time of year for reflection, introspection, and celebration. Celebrating love is at the heart of the holidays and our furry friends remind us to share the magic.
Share the magic of enjoying a healthy body with gifts that inspire daily movement, optimal nutrition, deep relaxation, and proper hydration. For example: a rebounder for movement, a cookbook for nutrition, a yoga mat for relaxation, and a water bottle for hydration.

Growth and evolution merge together in the process of creating heaven on earth. As you grow in mind and body your heart and spirit naturally evolve. Learning to live in harmony is the evolutionary path of humanity.
“Continue to grow and evolve.” Mahatma Gandhi
Your mind and body grow through change, challenges, and exploration. On an emotional and spiritual level your soul evolves when you make positive changes, overcome challenges, and explore your inner and outer worlds. Know that your personal growth contributes to the evolution of human consciousness.
Your body has been going through growth spurts since the day you were born. Some of that growth was painful and at other times you barely noticed. Conscious growth at this stage of your life depends on being so tuned in to your body that you know exactly what it needs to thrive and you provide it.
You grow mentally when you choose to uplift others rather than judge them....
Nature provides the perfect blueprint for your health. Its biodiversity of plants, animals, bacteria and fungi represent a diverse ecosystem. Wild animals move freely across the earth to remind us that movement is life. You must live in harmony with nature to be healthy.
“The human body is the best picture of the human soul.” ~ Tony Robbins
Moving your body is at the core of vibrant health. Every time you get up and move you're telling your body that you care. Your body will respond by moving freely with grace and ease. Schedule movement breaks throughout your day until it becomes a natural habit.
On hot summer days find a body of water. Nature provides lakes, rivers, streams, waterfalls, and oceans for a refreshing cool down. Whether you're taking a dip in a cold mountain stream, kayaking on a lake or river, swimming by a waterfall, or surfing in the ocean, you'll be moving naturally towards vital health.
Being healthy is your natural state....

Everything you need to thrive comes from the earth. In fact, your body is made up of the same elements that are found in nature. Like a flower that blooms among so many others, you're here to grow and flourish by staying connected to Mother Earth.
"Until a man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favorable comparison with the products of nature, the living cell of a plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life.” ~ Thomas Edison
Mother Earth provides exactly what you need to heal, lower stress, reduce inflammation, boost your immune system, and stay healthy. Like Hippocrates said: "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be they food." That means organic whole foods, herbs, and spices from the earth are the best natural medicine.
One way to connect is by standing or walking barefoot on the earth. When your skin...
Your aliveness is nurtured by radical self-care. An empty inner well doesn’t serve anyone because it eventually dries up from overuse. Your aliveness comes from finding your balance and living in harmony.
Declare “I am alive and well” as you reflect on this quote by Howard Thurman: “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
A well that is full has plenty to share and finds itself surrounded by beauty. It’s an inviting place to visit because it’s brimming with aliveness. Fill up your own well today by taking good care of yourself and notice how it naturally spills over and benefits others.
Wellness is an inside job. The image of filling up a well is the perfect metaphor for self-care. Imagine an empty well with nothing left to give as a way of remembering the value of restoring balance.
Self-care is more than a...
