The Journey to Wholeness and Well-Being

Last week I had some challenges with pain because of our week of rain. It provided the opportunity to recall again why I rebranded my office studio to the name Peaceful Wellness. This returns to my belief that if I can be at peace within, no matter the experience I may have, then it does bring me well-being. Thankfully, this week has been entirely different.

Even though last week my pain levels were high and my body was not doing what I wanted it to do, and certainly I did take this further in as “Oh, my body doesn’t look like the way I want it to look like,” I can instead work with my mind. I can become aware of the limiting beliefs that I may have that keep me from that sense of wellbeing, despite the body. It is all about our mindset. It is a journey to wholeness and well-being.

That is what I want to share with you in the Peaceful Wellness Transformational Coaching work that I have created based on my decades of experience, wisdom, and knowledge in mind, body and spirit endeavors.

My goal is to help you to learn how to work with the limiting beliefs and judgments that arise in regard to any aspect of your life, be it your body, your emotions, your relationships, and your experiences that cause the sense of dis-ease. That hyphenated term means that felt sense of not being at ease in our lives. In what I provide, it is our mind, our spirit, and our body working together as one, and truly that is my goal for you. I have continued to further my studies in modalities to benefit those challenged by anxiety, stress, PTSD, trauma, grief, physical pain, and other areas.

With the recent additional training I have been attending pre and during COVID, such as finishing my training in Yoga Therapy, it is seeing our being as one unit, and that’s what yoga is, really, it is the union of all aspects of ourselves. I have believed this for most of my life and certainly what I have experienced.

Now we all have our good days and bad days, but we do not have to allow our bad days, so to speak, continue to disrupt our lives.. We can practice mindfulness. This is what I did last week as the rain poured each day and the pain continued throughout my body. I practiced all of the aspects of mindfulness as I teach it. That is, acknowledging what is occuring, accepting it, and allowing it to be there. The more we push away our pain in whatever form, be it physical, mental or emotional, the more it continues. When we can befriend it, such as “Oh, hello, old friend, come on in” I can now observe without judgment and be more at peace with the experience. Of course, I do all that I can do to assist, use essential oils, medication, rest, or whatever I need to do to help the symptoms, in make case physical pain, along.

For me, a moment by moment walk with mindfulness is one of the keys to my own Peaceful Wellness, and that is why it is not only something that inspires me, but I like to inspire others with the aspect of mindfulness. Mindfulness helps me to learn to respond versus react to what is present, whether it is within my body, whether it is going on with a relationship, or whether it is going on spiritually.

Spiritually, I ask “How can I receive the inner support that I have already there within me?” You may ask yourself the same when you are navigating a challenge yourself. When we have these challenges, we block ourselves from the guidance of Inner Support, our Inner Counselor that we have. Maybe you call it your Divine Wisdom, Higher Support, Spirit, or Universe.

We all have this reservoir within us, this place of respite, and it is to here that we attend to our needs. This may look different for everyone. It will not be the same for each person. One person may need more meditation. One other person may need more mindful movement. Another person may need to work through the limiting beliefs that are present in their mind, and maybe someone else needs to work on all three at the same time. Maybe we’re using breath work. Maybe we’re using looking at idea of Ahimsa, which is nonviolence to others, and including ourselves. Maybe we’re working with self-compassion or self-forgiveness. The possibilities are endless.

There are many paths, and that is why I want to assist you in finding the path that works for you, and to help you feel empowered in your path. It is what I truly believe. My journey over these decades have brought me the experience, the wisdom and the knowledge that has assisted me, and that is what I make available to you.

The journey to remembering the wholeness that you are, to remembering your Divineness that you are. You truly are a divine being, and you are just having a human experience. When we remember that very idea and we forgive ourselves for forgetting that fact, peaceful wellness enters in.

Even though I have temporarily closed my office because of COVID safety at this time, I can work with you via Zoom or by phone and have done so with several people since March. Contact me if you are interested.
