Mindful breathing is so helpful.

Joy is defined as jubilation, triumph, happiness, glee, playfulness and delight. Re-joice literally means joy again. Symbolically we connect with animals, places, colours, sounds and smells that instill and remind us of joy.
The hummingbird is symbolic of joy in nature. It is small and mighty - adaptable, able to achieve seemingly immense tasks despite (and perhaps because of) its size. Supping on nectar, it needs to be constantly drinking in sweetness to stay alive. Such is the survival mechanism, hummingbirds will fight over a bloom or flower. At night it retreats into a hibernation state because otherwise it would die.
Physically, the pancreas aids the digestive process and regulates blood sugar. Metaphysically, this translates to the "sweetness of life" or joy.
Enjoying the sweetness of life and having it as a constant part of our life allows for a lightness and openness in each day.
When was the last time you tasted life?

Time to digest ......
Digestion in all forms begins with how we ingest something and ends with how much we absorb and how much we let go. Physically our digestive tract is the outside world - a long tube that carries our sustenance to where it ultimately needs to go to nurture our bodies. It is important to recognise how, when and why we eat. How we consume and filter information, emotions and thoughts is also important.
Unresolved emotional states play havoc with our digestion. If we are stressed, under pressure or deadline driven and we cannot switch off, then our nervous system is locked in the active, survival adrenalin-fueled state. Instead of the rest, digest and relax state. Anxiety and unease can cause our bellies to feel nauseous. This is a heightened awareness that inhibits the rest and digest part of the nervous system.
Eating and drinking mindfully is a great way to ensure we set the process up well from the beginning. Simply eating uninterrupted by other goings on. That means properly chewing, tasting and paying attention to what is going into your mouth.
Not drinking water 30 minutes before a meal. This dilutes the stomach acid and makes digesting food more challenging.
Drinking a cup of hot water with 1 or 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon of honey upon waking. Alternatively simply drink a glass of hot water upon waking - this will flush out the toxins that your body accumulated overnight.
Breathing deeply before eating a meal may be all you need to reset yourself and to prepare to eat.
The more time you rest, digest and relax will ultimately improve the quality of your well being.

It's all about feeling the feelings.
Jan 29, 2018
For many people loving self can feel selfish and is harder to come by or accept than that of loving other people. Do we listen to how others love us to gauge how to love ourselves? Is it possible to love others wholeheartedly without loving ourselves first?
Many of us consider ourselves to be openhearted, loving individuals. We show our love by being there, spending time, sharing meals. So what would it be like to treat ourselves with the same sense of presence? What would it feel like to be that cherished and honoured? Would we feel comfortable accepting it?
Simple acts of love that we display towards others may feel foreign to ourselves.
We don't think twice about hugging someone we love, but hugging ourselves is strange the first few times we do it. Try it - wrap your arms around yourself and feel how safe and nurturing it can be.
Standing in front of a mirror and saying "I love you" or "I like you" is another way to gauge your degree of acceptance. When you get to the stage of looking (really looking) at yourself it can be quite transformational. You may actually catch yourself smiling!
Giving yourself permission to take time out, by yourself - to read a book, meditate, or doing something that is only for your benefit is fantastic for reinforcing self-love.
Love can be given freely, how willing are you to receive it? It is not conditional love - "she's family so I have to love her and she has to love me". It is unconditional, when we choose to accept it, we can fully enjoy the benefits.
You are special, you are worth it! How well do you love yourself?

Totally Real Unity of Self, equals personal Truth.
This is what trust can look like.
We may seek opinion and be vulnerable to environmental, emotional and mental over-stimulation. This takes us further away from our relationship with our personal truth. It can also be a coping mechanism to shield us in the very space that we find confronting.
By establishing our core values, beliefs, vision and dreams we come closer to our own truth. From there a sense of self and an internal barometer rise. We begin to trust ourselves more than we trust others opinions on various challenges we face.
It takes courage to stand in our truth, taking ownership of who we are and what we want to give the world. This is an investment in worldly trust. When we back ourselves, irrespective of what societal norms tell us, we are trusting.
Real world challenges can rock our world. Life is like that. Trust is sometimes given without thought or withdrawn too quickly. It is ultimately a gauge of how much we trust our own instincts and our own truth.
