My introduction to meditation began after my parent’s divorce. When my mother moved in with her new boyfriend, I met the next-door neighbors. Two moms with their two sons. They lived a vegan lifestyle and sat with me, a nine-year-old, for hours a week…simply meditating. Since that time, I’ve lived my life questioning reality and the structures of society. That lead to a bunch of crazy times including a detour into the mainstream business world and marriage.
During my years in the corporate world I gravitated towards self-improvement books and motivational speakers. Even with filling my mind with positive 'you-can-do-it stuff', I still felt the weight of the world on my shoulders, my chest, my lungs... In 2011 the corporate office closed over 160 offices due to their gross mismanagement of advertising funds, I reluctantly turned to anti-anxiety medications for 6 months and that was the end of the corporate world for me! I knew there was a better way and I was seeking it out.
I joke with my girlfriends that we’re classy…we are always taking classes. I love the traditions of reiki healing and became a reiki master. Growing up with crystals in the house it was natural to use them as a healing tool. When my oldest son broke his arm, my younger son questioned urgent care being a place of healing. After he checked the desk drawers he asked, “where are the crystals?”. My heart space energy grew in that moment.
These days you can catch me at home practicing ashtanga, vinyasa, and yin yoga. Meditation, repeating mantras, and reading non-fiction are in my morning routine. I’m a spiritual believer, not religious. Intuition, mindfulness, and prayer are my way of life. And lots of other joyful and boring things!
As a busy single mom I found myself neglecting my self-care until I created a routine with crystals, oils, and sprays. It was truly life changing. My mind fog cleared-up. I was living a purposeful life. I knew I had to get this out to others who were struggling with self-care and life/work/family balance.
