Lately I have been writing about shedding, healing, and empowering one another to live our best life. I shared how the practices of shamanic energy healing are powerful tools to support.
What's important for me to share today is that we are more than energetic beings. Meaning, we are also driven by emotion. These emotions are driven by our deeply held beliefs / thought forms. When the negative emotion drives behavior, we don't always act with integrity and we feel even worse.
When we combine energetic releases (shamanic energy healing) with practices to bring underlying beliefs / thought form to the surface (mindset coaching), we experience transformation. In transformation we return to inner harmony and alignment. Our thoughts, words, and deeds line up. We allow our emotions to come and go like the tide. We live with integrity. We feel good. We live our best life!
I support you!

At Bronxville Wellness Sanctuary we believe meditation is a powerful tool in personal transformation. From managing stress, anxiety, and PTSD to cultivating a deeper sense of inner peace and well-being, meditation can help.
Often when someone comes to us to learn meditation or deepen their practice they express "fear of doing it wrong".
Somehow there's an idea meditation has to be perfect, i.e.: no thoughts, distractions, emotions...even no animal friends joining us.
The truth is, there is no wrong way to meditate...unless you don't do it!!
Some days meditation is blissful and beautiful.
Other days it isn't and out mind is racing. We do it anyway.
It's the consistency of practice that yields "results".
Peter and Stephanie offer private meditation sessions. Whether you are looking to create a nourishing practice that is customized for you or wanting to deepen and existing practice, we are here for you. No experience necessary. Sessions are 30 minutes, $75

"Transformation is through the body, not away from it. This is why no true master has ever advocating fighting or leaving the body, although their mind-based followers often have." -Eckhart Tolle
Previously I have written about the difference between knowledge and knowing. I shared my experience with Eckhart Tolle and how the only true way to "know" something, is to experience it.
What are you noticing...knowing?
This week I encourage you to become curious about what and how your physical body is trying to communicate with you.
Our physical body is a portal to what is really happening deep within. By deep within I mean beyond the mind and it's thoughts/story/narrative.
For example, ever notice how physical pain causes us to "do" something when it no longer becomes tolerable?
The moment we feel "we have had enough of feeling sick/tired/achy/lonely" (i.e.: suffering) we can decide it's time to make a change. Time for transformation!!!
Perhaps we decide to become conscious of our food habits and choose to eat better.
Or, maybe it's time to lace up those sneakers and exercise.
For some it's time to ease up on the physical body and get a massage or finally try yoga, etc.
And still for others there's a sense of the inner body that feels "off". Anxious, afraid, alone...endless cycle of emotional up and down.
Why does connecting with the body matter?
From a practical sense, we need it in order to live so why not take care of it the best we can?
On a deeper level, the physical body is a powerful doorway to access wisdom and therefore transformation. Can't change what you don't know/want to know :)
While some wisdom traditions may teach denying the body and/or ignoring the body, in my experience, it is the exact opposite. We must pay attention, listen, and learn. Then we apply those lessons in the form of action.
How do we access the physical body, in a deeper sense?
One thread runs through all of it and that is the practice of presence...awareness. A.K.A - paying attention.
Some of us pay attention quite naturally and either choose to take action or not. Doing nothing is also a choice :)
Others of us engage in movement practices - yoga/running/walking outside/dance... to help us get in touch/feel the inner body.
And still others rely on meditation, massage, or other forms of energy healingto assist in bring us into deeper awareness.
There's no right or wrong way.
And the "way" may change over time as you change. Nothing is permanent in this world of form. Ha!
As I say-- the only "wrong" way to meditate is simply to not do it all.
And so it is with life and dealing with change. We will either consciously choose to listen to our body or not. Regardless, life / transformation happens anyway. We can embrace it (peaceful path) or fight it (suffering path).
I don't know about you. I rather the peaceful path.
