ABOUT: This blog will challenge you to break, change and make new rules in your life.  It will encourage you to rebel [stand in opposition] of stereotypes,  perceptions and opinions that would dissuade you from living an authentic life. I hope it will help you to see that as a person with a given life purpose from God,  that you are needed, loved and valued.  It will give you practical tools,  resources and recommendations.  Most of all, I hope it lets you know someone is listening and someone cares.

The After Thought of Adult Swim

The After Thought of Adult Swim

As a lifelong swimmer who has swam both on a recreational level and competitively, I hold strongly to the belief that swimming is much more than competitions, times and athletic achievements.  Simultaneously and in the same breath, swimming can stimulate the mind and harmonize the emotions, build cardiovascular endurance and encourage social relationships.

Yet, most swimming programs are built for kids.  Adults and Seniors (30-60) are typically left to fend for themselves.  Ok, yes, I am fully aware that many swim programs offer adult classes.  I have taught them both group and private.  Yet, there is no real plan for an adult or senior.  Classes are also limited to 30 min increments.  That means, an adult if they buy a four-session pack (usually recommended) would have to pay anywhere between $200-240.00 dollars per month.  That would buy you a total of 2 hours with your instructor.  That is not a lot of time.

Trauma & Hope

Trauma & Hope

In the last three weeks, the south/southeast part of the US has unwillingly been subjected to the “collusion” of two deadly storms. Harvey took aim at Texas and left his mark of destruction with flooded homes, cars and leaving people homeless. Irma, the jealous one decided to outdo herself, showoff and settle the score by making her mark on the Caribbean & Florida. It is atmospheric “sibling” rivalry at its best.

Needless to say, we the unwilling participants, the people who live in these areas, who have family in these areas, are having to figure out a “new normal.” Even those who have survivor’s guilt. Let’s just be plain my city (Houston) is experiencing shock and trauma. We still have roads that are flooded, homes that are being gutted, and people still living in shelters.

Church. Love. Community

Church. Love. Community

The word “church” makes my skin crawl and I want to squeal in terror when I hear it!  You can imagine that picture right?  Ever since I gave my heart to the Lord in the late ’80’s.  I have been progressively growing in my relationship with Him.   There is no doubt I love him and he unconditionally loves me.  His passion and his heart for humanity are unrelenting.Yet, sadly the church as I have known it and in my own experience has failed me and maybe you too.

Unfortunately even in well meaning churches there are symptoms of spiritual abuse.  But God in his patient and persevering nature led me to meet Pastor’s Arthur and Debra Lee, then Pastor’s of Freedom Tabernacle.

Letting Go & Coffee Shop Friends

Letting Go & Coffee Shop Friends

I started writing this post yesterday but when I was adding a link I clicked “cancel” and everything just went away, not to be recaptured again. Unless, it was written again. The irony of it all is that sometimes God has to rewrite our story for us. He is the author and finisher of our faith. Right now this truth doesn’t sit all that well with me. It seems He has authored a season of relational disconnect for me. My perspective only, but dare I say perspective is everything. How one sees a particular situation can color it completely different than it truly is.

I cried all day yesterday, cancelled my church membership, and yelled at my cats for pooping outside the litter box. They sense my anger, fear, anxiety and stress. My fur babies are forgiving so all will be well again, but am I so forgiving with myself? You see, on May 25, 2014 my world as I knew it would be catapulted into a “new normal.”

Qi-Gong (Beginner’s Intro)

Qi-Gong (Beginner's Intro)

Beginning Qi Gong exercises. This set has an extra Pulling Down the Heavens since I was trying to do it from memory. I also shortened the amount of repetitions since I had practiced several times before. It was done outside so the heat began to get to me and the individual filming. Need lots of practice since both me and my friend are beginners.

Handstand in Pajamas

Handstand in Pajamas

One of my goals has been to do a handstand again. Been practicing in pool with no gravity but finally strong enough to do them on land with the help of a wall. First one didn’t go so well. Gradually got better in the last two. Great for body awareness, flexibility and strength conditioning.

It took me almost six months of consistent work in the pool before I had enough arm strength to hold myself up on land without injury.  Now I working on my next goal which is a full split and backbend.  What are your goals?  Keep practicing, you will eventually get there!

Oh and yes, I make noises!

Love and Healing

Love and Healing

It has been quite a ride for the last couple of weeks as I have had the opportunity to work with several individuals completely new to Reiki and Energy Medicine. I applaud their willingness and trust in me as a practitioner to help them through things that they have been struggling with. It has been a learning experience for me as well, as I have often heard the comment “You knew things that you didn’t have any previous knowledge of”.

The repeated comments from different individuals tells me that this living energy is so personal, very personal that it’s heart is to go directly to the source of pain, whether physical, emotional or spiritual and gently touch it. In this sacred, private space where permission is given for the client to respond how it is best for them, this living energy,

Music and Frequencies of Healing

Music and Frequencies of Healing

Sound has been utilized in various cultures as a tool for healing for many years.  We each carry a vibrational frequency and resonance.  Both positivity and negativity have a certain frequency.  Shifts in our brainwaves happen by entrainment  essentially tuning our brain to a certain frequency.  A Sound Healing session is both a passive and participatory experience. I believe in sound healing and its power to heal us from trauma. I saw WholeTones pop up as a sponsored post on Facebook and gave it a look. Some beautiful music here. If you are new to musical frequencies, I have also included a quick link to an explanation of them. https://attunedvibrations.com/solfeggio-scale/ When I first started my healing journey, I looked for songs that were soothing to my soul and would help me gently focus.  I was first wary because I had heard the word “new age” thrown around.  Unfortunately, that title
