Calming my nerves so I can be a Happy Mama

I’m a happy mama

Steeping a cup of Happy Mama tea, one of the Kalusion tea blends. This blend contains oatstraw, which calms the nerves. It’s been said that everyone living in modern society should have oatstraw in their life. It also contains herbs for hormone balance and energy.

Not to mention, I actually enjoy it. Check it out at the BouTEAque

You don’t have to be busy to be successful

I feel like a total hypocrite right now.

I’m about to tell you that busy is not something to strive for. It keeps you in fight or flight, which creates anxiety and health problems.

Yet, I am wrapping up a very busy few weeks (see the bags under my eyes).

Busy happens to the best of us 😳, however, if you stay in tune with yourself and your schedule, you can manage it so it doesn’t take over.

In my case, I was scheduled well in advance, and anticipated it’s arrival, so I scheduled some recovery time.

How are you keeping busy at bay?

Anxiety is not the inheritance we are hoping for

Anxiety is something we pass down.

Not the inheritance we were looking for, but there it is. 
4.4 million children are diagnosed with anxiety.

We were shown how to react to stressful situations from our parents, we model it, and pass it on. Every time we stress out about money, or traffic, or being late, etc., we are teaching how to react with stress.

If we don’t want to teach this, we have to unlearn it for ourselves, so we can model it for our children.

Let’s start a plan for unlearning!

Don’t Let March Happen to You

If you have ever spent any time at a fitness center, whether as a member or employee, you know the January rush of “resolutioners” each year that completely dissipates every March. By the time March arrives, life has started to interfere with your goals, or you pursued them so furiously that you burned yourself out, or even yet you were chasing the wrong goals to begin with.

I have noticed that when people choose a goal, they think they have picked something they really want. It’s usually in the form of less weight or more money. However, this is usually only scratching the surface, and more of a by-product of the true craving that’s lying deep inside of you.

When you are chasing hard after something that doesn’t truly resonate with you in the first place, it’s really difficult to not let life get in the way. I mean, why work so hard for something that you aren’t totally passionate about. This means, you haven’t been unsuccessful in achieving your goals, you just haven’t been chasing them.

I find that March is a perfect time to check in with your goals instead of chucking them. March brings the first day of spring, which brings new life, and another new beginning.

So, here are some questions to ask yourself as you re-evaluate your goals:

Why do I really want to achieve this goal? What am I really craving?

Can I chunk this goal into smaller steps?

How can I create accountability to achieve this goal?

What is working so far?

What isn’t working?

You have it in you to achieve everything you dream of. Sometimes you just need a little support along the way.

 

If you are interested in partnering with me to learn how to turn off your thoughts to find your life’s cravings, and holistically achieve them with loving accountability then reach out to me at kaluwa@kalusion.com or check out more information on The Have It All Method at www.kalusion.com

Breaking Out of My Mind Prison

When the circus gets a baby elephant, they put enormous shackles on that it can’t get out of. As that elephant grows and grows, those shackles are useless to its physical strength, but the elephant doesn’t know that. The elephant has learned that it can’t escape them so it doesn’t even try. That elephant is imprisoned by its own limiting beliefs.

shutterstock_425430754

This is something I’ve been working on with myself A LOT. After a very long career of helping people in a non-profit human services setting to gain independence after realizing physical, mental health, and emotional “disabilities” I realized I could be of more value if I got to these people before so many of their issues became a reality. So many small shifts could prevent these huge problems, and I felt compelled (a calling) to provide this.

So I did it (with a little push from the universe). I began my business to provide health coaching and education to heal people’s lives. What I didn’t realize was that this would challenge me in a way I had never experienced before. I did not realize I had limiting beliefs about money and career that would make me spin around uselessly for quite some time.

I learned that if your thoughts and beliefs aren’t in alignment, you produce inconsistent action. So while I’m thinking “I will help people while earning an income with my own business”, my deep down belief (subconscious) was saying “Ha ha, loser! You can’t have financial security working for yourself AND you certainly can’t make money doing work you love. If we all did what we love, it would be called PLAY and not WORK”

So, it seemed my subconscious is sort of an a-hole. Great.

The other thing I learned is that when your thoughts (conscious) and beliefs (subconscious) are at war, the subconscious always wins (a-hole).

Then I started paying attention around me, and I saw mind prisons everywhere. When I teach kids to dance, they will try any move you demonstrate until around the age of 5. That’s when the dooming “I can’t” seems to dominate their every (lack of) effort. Not only that, but as soon as one child is exposed to that airborne “I can’t” the contagion spreads to them, and then they “can’t” either.

It’s in every part of our life, every problem we feel.

Health – Someone wants to have good health, but their belief is that their family has a long history of health problems (blood pressure, diabetes, etc) so they will have it too. With that mindset, every attempt that person makes to get healthy becomes sabotaged.

Love – unlucky in love, don’t deserve love

Finance – only the 1% can have an abundance of money, rich people are jerks

Self-care – it’s selfish to take time for yourself, mothers should sacrifice themselves for their family

The list goes on.

Another thing I learned is that these self-limiting beliefs were given to us usually in childhood from teachings we received, from media, and from our education system. They are buried so deep, that we often don’t even realize that they are there. I didn’t. It just seems that every time you make an effort it is met with failure.

It took tremendous work on my part to uncover my limiting beliefs. As a dancer and mover, that is my outlet for healing. Gabrielle Roth, founder of 5 Rhythms, said “to calm the mind, move the body”. So that’s what I did. I began dancing each of my chakras, massaging them, doing mantras, meditation. I expected to learn my root chakra was the one troubling me. Finances are a big part of feeling stable, and grounded, which is what the root chakra represents. However, as I moved along through the sacral chakra, then to the solar plexus chakra – WHOA, suddenly I had goose bumps and chills all over, and realized my struggle was more about feeling like I didn’t deserve success in my life. After clearing my mind through movement, I would journal. Sometimes I would journal with no topic – just free writing, other times I would write about a topic specific to the chakra. Every session revealed to me something new, something I had no idea was there.

Now I had found it! – My mind prison. But how do I break out? There was more work to be done. I had to change my subconscious. How in the world do you do that?freedom

I had to start with managing my emotions. Stay out of the dark side, and have faith – faith that I am not alone, faith that I am secure, faith that I am looked after, faith that I will be saved from drowning. Basically, I was staying away from stress, doubt, worry, discouragement, and any other low vibration emotion. This was coupled with positive expectations, goal cards, mind movies, continued chakra dance, movement, and journaling. I got help and accountability from coaches, mentors, and my tribe. And, I still continue to invest in myself and do this work because I don’t accept that I should be limited.

All of this is actually what gave birth to The Have It All Method movement and coaching program. I had so many breakthroughs, realizations, epiphanies, tears, smiles, laughs,and healing moments to break my tiny little shackles that I wanted other people to find their freedom too. After all, the whole reason I started this journey was to help people.

What is your limiting belief?

THANK A HEALTH COACH

It’s Health Coach Week!

If you have been one of the privileged to receive direct services from a health coach, you probably know how invaluable they are.
Health coaches are experienced in guiding you through the endless diet and lifestyle plans out there to help you target the one that is right for you, and they are your accountability partner so you will achieve the success that often doesn’t come about when you are on your own and overwhelmed.

Many people believe they only need a health coach if they are in extremely poor health, or just don’t know how to take care of themselves, but the truth is health coaches are as unique as the situations that come up. Some help with children struggling to eat well or eat at all, some help physical imbalances, some help emotional imbalances, some educate, some give presentations, some start community projects, and the list goes on.

Unfortunately, the way of eating most of us learned growing up was not conducive for sustaining long term health. Our health care system has become backed into a corner of putting band aids on the leaks in a dam. We take a pill to correct an imbalance, which causes another imbalance, and another pill. Our children are the first generation of children predicted to have a shorter life span than their parents.

There is still a great deal of change that needs to happen.

Health coaches are the silent warriors working to make this change, often times behind the scenes. Some have pursued legislative change, some have pursued community change, and some educate the masses.
So even if you have not received health coaching directly, chances are you have been indirectly affected by a health coach. This is their week, give them a thanks.

Feeling Authentic In Your Gratitude Practice

Happy Gratitude Month

I love November when we seem to give all of our blessings some extra attention no matter where we are in our journey. However, some days everything is breaking down including your family members, and it’s more of a struggle to feel authentic being grateful. That’s when I like to use “even if” statements or intention statements. These statements directly address that little negative voice in the back of your head, and neutralize it. So on a particular day your intention statement may be “I am grateful for the ability to provide safe transportation for my family, even if it just took a major bite out of my budget” or “I am grateful for my beautiful children, even if they drive me crazy sometimes”. Experiment with your own intention statements to see if they feel more genuine to you. Remember that with any practice the more you do, the better it becomes.Hope

Give Yourself the Gift of Love On Valentine’s Day and All Year Through

I hope you had a wonderful Valentine weekend filled with love. One of the simplest, but often most overlooked ways to receive an abundance of love in your life is to start by loving yourself. You teach others how to treat you by the way you treat yourself. If you condemn yourself with negative self talk, and don’t take any time to nourish yourself physically, emotionally, or spiritually than the people around you will follow your lead. Show everyone how to show you kindness and love. It is not a selfish act to take care of yourself. It is quite the opposite. When you fill yourself with positive loving energy it exudes from you onto others, and is quite contagious. That’s a contagion that no one minds catching. Start right now! Look at yourself directly in the mirror, and say one kind thing to yourself, and then tell yourself I Love You!
