Do you constantly feel drained, stressed out, stuck, angry,
depressed or full of anxiety?
It is well
researched that the leading cause of unhappiness, addiction and disease in the
majority of the population, is stress. As
a massage therapist, it is obvious to me, how increasingly difficult it is
becoming for people to reach a state of relaxation and therefore health.

MY FRAGMENTED SELF
Wow, that is a mouthful.
What does this phrase even mean?
What is a fragmented self?
If you are experiencing a fragmented self, it simply means
that your intentions are not in line with your actions. We as humans will probably go in and out of
this many times in our souls as we navigate our paths in this life. To start we have to first ask ourselves what
our intentions in life are and then learn the skill and discipline of applying
the action of those intentions in a real way.
I recently treated myself to a weekend yoga and meditation
retreat near Fort Collins at the Shambhala Mountain Center. I went because I did not take any time off
for the holidays from work and was feeling like I needed to surround myself
with some other spiritually inclined “seekers” and gather some higher energy
for myself. I also just watched one of
my best friends slowly die this last month and said goodbye to him for the last
time before I left for my retreat. Even
though I had already booked my retreat before I knew how sick my friend was, it
was perfect timing to have some space to myself alone to sort through my
feelings about losing him.
WHAT IS LOVE? THE ANSWER MIGHT BE IN THE QUESTION OF WHAT IS SELF-LOVE?
What is love? Not
just a question for the 90’s techno song but a deeply profound question that
has been asked for centuries and will remain one of the most mysterious and
unique of human experiences on this earth plane. As a soul that seeks to understand the nature
of love in my life, my path has continually seemed to direct me back towards
self-love, as the foundation for comprehending all other forms of love.
We as the human race were given the gift of evolving on an incredibly abundant and generous overflowing planet of resources and potential. What have we done with it? Not only have we been destroying the very resources that would sustain us naturally but mankind has created a social system within the planet that is a lie. The grand lie is that we don't have enough of what we need, so in order to survive, that some people get to live well, comfortably, struggling, poor or not at all.
