The Spiritual Benefits of Fasting ~ Cleansing Your Soul

The Spiritual Benefits of Fasting ~ Cleansing Your SoulFasting is an act of cleansing. Cleansing the body, cleansing the mind, cleansing the heart, cleansing the Soul…..cleansing your complete being from all the negativity that we carry within.

As I blur out the outside world and dwell within this month, I would like to share with you what the Holy month of Ramadan and Fasting truly mean to me.

Having studied almost every religion under the sun, I know for a fact that every community, every faith has a form of fasting embedded within their system. Fasting that is meant to inculcate spiritual growth.

Here are some in depth words by highly eminent beings, that will give you an idea as to how I see fasting as a means for spiritual growth. Their words as they are, are far better than my own in explaining this beautiful act of cleansing the soul. Continue reading

Positive Weight-loss Tips from a Happier, Healthier and Lighter me

Positive Weight-loss Tips from a Happier, Healthier and Lighter me“Because weight loss is really a mind over matter thing.”

I was always the chubby and bubbly girl growing up. Always.

Ask any of my friends and they will say YES so fast its not even funny :) And I loved being that way. I had fun eating what I wanted and being simply happy.

Tumultuous Times

But, all that happiness changed and took a nasty turn when I entered my teens. Suddenly, the cute chubby girl needed to become thin to fit in. I tried. I tried. And then I tried some more. I just couldn’t become thin and hence never fit in. Now, in this healed state, I know that’s a good thing. I know owning my Uniqueness is my happiness. But in that tumultuous teenage time, it was horror. I became SO conscious. Stopped being myself and did many awful things to fill that hole in my heart. Rest assured it never got full till I began to love myself when I discovered spirituality. Continue reading

5 Essential Yoga Principles for Positive Thinking

5 Essential Yoga Principles for Positive Thinking‘You are what you think!

This statement is true when it comes to positive thinking.
Being positive is a state of mind. It is the ‘feel good’ factor that we all talk about.

But how do we train our brain? Yoga is your answer.

Please note: This is a guest post from Chetna of Style Craze! Enjoy!

There are no specific yoga asanas or techniques that could render positive thinking. It is a synergic outcome of the five principles of yoga – asanas, pranayamas, relaxation, meditating, and the right diet. These work with your thoughts, healing you in the process. When the body and mind work in a synchronized fashion, the outcome is bound to be positive.

Is your self-love cup half empty?

Is your self-love cup half empty?Could you use some easy tips to show yourself some much needed lovin’?

It’s not as hard as you may think. All it takes is a bit of time and a lot of openness and willingness: to change, to receive, to see and to love.

You’ve clouded your mind with attacks and comparisons for way too long. You’ve bombarded yourself with messages of “not being good enough, strong enough, thin enough, beautiful enough and powerful enough” and you’ve long forgotten that this is not the way you are supposed to live your life. This is not the way you’re supposed to feel.

But you’re here today, reading this article and ready for change, right?

You’re ready for a life lived with more inner peace and outer comfort. You’re ready to embrace yourself with all your vulnerable sides and powerful gifts. Continue reading

Are You Sacrificing Self Care for Your New Year’s Resolution?

Are You Sacrificing Self Care for Your New Year’s Resolution?Note: This is a guest post by the lovely Kaylee Rupp of ZenCaffeine.com!  Read, enjoy and show her some love in the comments. She has such a loving approach to life. 

It’s a New Year, and with it come the inevitable weight loss goals.

Only this time it’ll be different – you’ll eat five servings of veggies a day, workout six days a week and not one sweet will pass your lips. You’ve even set up a reward system – if you can do this, without fail, at the end of the week, you get a hot, luxurious bath. Or an afternoon alone at your favorite bookstore. Or [insert your favorite activity here].

Fast forward one week and your willpower has run out (we only have so much of it, y’know). Not only has one sweet passed your lips, but also a #6 combo from your favorite fast food place. You feel ashamed, defeated, and you definitely aren’t giving yourself that bath. You didn’t earn it. Continue reading

Green Juicing just got so much more awesome

Make your own recovery your first priority in life.~ Robin Norwood

I often talk of healing. Mostly cause I’m a healer and believe we all have a chance at healing any and all scars that we may carry with us-physical, emotional or spiritual.

Today I have the special pleasure of interviewing one of my favorite bloggers and ofcourse a dear friend Farnoosh Brock of Prolific Living! Just like the Title to her blog she is indeed prolific in all she does. So, when she told me she was working on a Green Juicing Guide I literally did a happy dance and jumped sky high. Not only was I excited about the new guide, it was the actual topic of green jucing that made me so happy.  Continue reading
