From My Head to My Heart

Hello, I took a must needed break from social media through the summer.  I am back and want to share why I took the break and what I learned.  It was around my birthday in May.  My life was stressful and I was not intentional in my actions.  I just reacted to everything.  Mindfulness wasn’t in my actions.  I was reacting day to day to people, events, and news from my head not my heart.  So, I had to stop.

During the summer I took time to reevaluate my life.  I started therapy and began writing in my journal again.  I learned that I was such a people pleaser and codependent that my life was absorbed with others needs.  My needs were not even known to me.

So, I began looking at what my heart needed and wanted.  I found that I needed to be by the ocean and I hadn’t been lately.  IMG_1569

I also became aware that I wasn’t stopping and noticing the beauty around me.

I spent time with family and friends.

I also began writing again and hope one day to have a biographical fiction to publish.

I learned from this hiatus from social media and my unintentional life that I miss a great deal when I react instead of being present and let my heart lead me.  When I do that I can appreciate so much in my life every day.

Holiday gift for family and co-workers​

 

cropped-katherine-dasta-highresjpegLiving from Your Heart: The Inner Essence Journey is a great gift to give family members or people you work with or any group that you spend time with and want to have a more cooperative, loving and compassionate relationship together.

It is a book that teaches four behaviors to stop when they cause pain and suffering to you or others.  Then, the Five Essential Laws of Life are explained.  They are guidelines to follow when you find yourself doing any of the STOP behaviors and to generally follow throughout the days.  It also teaches stretching exercises for your body.  Finally, the readers will learn about energy centers in our bodies called chakras and how to pay attention to their body and learn what it needs and what it is telling you.

When a person practices the Inner Essence Journey alone it is very powerful because she becomes more aware of her behaviors and feels the pain in her body more clearly which informs her as to what and where her energy is blocked.  However, when a family or a group of workers practice the Inner Essence Journey together the benefits multiply profoundly.  family playingThe people in the group are supporting each other to STOP certain behaviors and to follow the Five Laws of Life.  It feels much better to have a home or work environment that is more cooperative and compassionate.  It’s a way to be a family, a team, a group working together.   If you want to give a meaningful holiday gift idea for coworkers and family I suggest giving Living From Your Heart:  The Inner Essence Journey and then practice the program together in the New Year.  It is truly a gift that can last forever.
