You came into this world with a big inhale and you will leave with one final exhale. How you breathe in between is an important factor in your longevity. Deep, conscious breathing creates presence and expands your life force.
“The secret to longevity is to keep breathing.” ~ Sophie Tucker
Trees provide oxygen for us to breathe.They are firmly rooted in the earth while reaching upwards towards the heavens. You can increase your longevity by breathing deeply, getting grounded, and raising your consciousness. Spend more time in nature to increase longevity.
Are you wasting or maximizing your time? Imagine getting to the end of your life and being able to say that you valued your time on earth so much that you didn't waste a minute of it worrying about the future, regretting the past or complaining in the present.
The first step to living longer is to be aware of how well you're doing when it comes to taking care of yourself. When...
Where your attention goes, energy flows. Pay more attention to the positive than the negative and you'll be in the natural flow of life. Notice the beauty that is right in front of your eyes and you'll be using your energy wisely.
“To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.” ~ Mary Oliver
Mother Nature naturally draws our attention to her beauty. If you're too busy to notice, you're missing out on one of the greatest gifts of being human. All of your senses were designed to pay attention to the natural world.
Pay attention to your positive thoughts. What you focus on expands so put your attention on what you want to see more of in your life. When you pay attention to what you don't want, you're wasting energy on worry. Shift your attention to what you do want to make good use of your energy.
Give your body the attention it deserves. Aches and pains, fatigue and burnout, are some of the ways your body communicates....
As above, so below. As a spiritual being you're already whole and complete. It stands to reason that part of your physical journey is to experience heaven on earth by remembering that your natural state is wholeness.
“Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Vibrant health is an aspect of wholeness. When you forget who you really are then parts of who you think you are turn into fragments that become vulnerable to illness and dis-ease. Remember that being whole is your true nature and healing is natural.
Your mental well-being is tied to your belief about wholeness. If you believe that you need something or someone outside of yourself to feel complete, you are mistaken. That is a myth that has been perpetuated by the illusion of lack. You already have everything you need as a spiritual being having a human experience.

Balance is your natural state. Chronic stress will throw you off balance and affect your overall well-being. Make your health a top priority and you'll discover a variety of ways you can naturally restore balance.
“To heal illness, begin by restoring balance.” ~ Caroline Myss
Stress causes shallow breathing. Make a habit of taking deep, relaxing breaths throughout the day. Sighing is a great way to move from your head to your heart and lower stress. Breathing consciously will help you live in the present moment and feel more balanced.
Relationships can throw you off balance. You may need to set a few healthy boundaries with people who are sources of stress in your life. That means deciding what you will, and will not tolerate,...
Get outdoors today and connect with nature. Nature calms your nervous system and opens your mind to your soul’s wisdom and guidance. Come to your senses by paying attention to what you see, hear, taste, touch and smell. Engage your sixth sense as well by quieting your mind and listening to your intuition. One of the best ways to quiet the chatter of the mind is to become fully present with your body in the moment.
If you can’t get outdoors, here’s a guided meditation to connect with nature:
After connecting with nature, write in a journal any new insights or ideas that you received. Feel free to also email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy Wisdom Wednesday!
Supercharge your dreams into existence with the wisdom of your soul. When your body is rooted in a solid foundation of well-being and your ego is aligned with your soul, all is well. Trust your soul as though your life depends on it.
“Trust that your soul has a plan and even if you can’t see it all, know that everything will unfold as it’s meant to.” ~ Deepak Chopra
Your soul is here to enjoy the human experience. It loves to be in nature where your body feels more grounded, and your mind is more in tune with inner wisdom. Spend time outdoors near trees as often as possible, even if it's just for few minutes. This is one way to honor your soul.
Your soul will guide you to make good choices. When those choices have positive results you will learn to trust your soul and let go of the ego's attachment to specific outcomes.
Trust your soul to guide you to where you want to go. It's like having an inner GPS to reach your...
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...
