Nutrition and Weight Loss With Maria

Image
Americans spend over $60 million a year to lose weight.

It is a HUGE INDUSTRY.

Of those that actually do lose weight, 41% of them gain back their weight and more within 5 years.




This is a tuff fact to swallow!

Why does it seem so hard to lose weight?

....It’s because we think we know how to eat healthy, and diet. Unfortunately, it’s not that easy.




To be a champion, you must eat like a champion, train like a champion, and act like a champion. 
Champion for yourself! Learn self love. Learn Self care. Connect to self. Balance Self.

Consciousness for Soul Time , Thru Bodywork

Image
    ALOHA Ohana!!!!

Spirit asked me to share today about Consciousness for Soul Time , Thru Bodywork: 

Consciousness supports our ability to focus our attention on multidimensional
aspects that show up. This way, we are able to include these juicy nuggets  in our matter world reality.
 It allows the possibility for a new reality to emerge.  Soul Time embraces the concept  that, while our corporal bodies are mortal,  our magnificent souls are timeless, limitless, and infinite. 
So...why not go exploring, while you are here!!!

Massage allows a quiet time.
A time for you to go places, journey...
unwind, and transform.

A TIME and SPACE, that is just for you.

created...
journeying potentials...
Think daydreaming... going deeper...going within.
...get quiet, to hear...

Go in, and allow the awakening, and listen to the voices at a whisper, announcing news, and sharing insights.

Listen to the divine inner voices, when they arise spontaneously, you are never alone. 

Turn in, to council for guidance.

The longest day of the year has come!

Summer Solstice,
                                  and we celebrate!!!


     Shine your light bright...
                light up your bountiful path with blessings today, 
and each day forward, 
               as we move throughout the calendar year.


     It is In our Transition(s)... that we can support our understanding of our every changing nature.
So often we are mindless of the transition...
and it is in this moment...
its how
its grace
it is IT.


And transition with respect to
 Our existence, and our live... and in these moments, 

we must learn to 
LET GO, 
to
SURRENDER 
...to the process. 
and
...
simply...

ALLOW. 


Allow the transition to occur.

Do this with ease and grace.

Trust the process.

It is a remembrance.
Everything we have gone thru, as our soul, in this beautiful vessel. 
It is thru this remembrance,
we bring valuable information thru...
these are gifts and tools for us to use.

FLOW 

Gracefully with life.

Life begins as a great mystery... 
until we quiet enough …

Realization

Image
The frequency of REALIZATION supports the internal process of becoming aware of our heart-centered truths. This also allows and leads us to the external process of becoming our highest expression in this world. 

     Maturity in a heart centered place allows love.
Resonates LOVE.
It hears love. It knows love. It feels love, and it wants to express love.
LOVE. in its most high, pure frequency.

     Romantic LOVE supports our journey to feel whole and complete through the experience and reflection of a conscious lover.

 This is why it is so important to wait, allow a significant pause on this... one must mature, and choose wisely.
One most not go thru humans PRACTICING with hearts. Even the best of humans end up doing this because we get into relationships too early, they damage us, we hurt, and get guarded, and we get into another relationship, and are stuck on repeat....
until we are so damaged and hurt, and empty. This is not how it is meant to be. Take time to heal. Take time to reflec…

Honor Sacred Connection

"I come to you with ancestor wisdom, master of the night. I ask you to SEE situations with perfect clarity, and TRUTH.
Open your ears...
Notice every detail...
TRUTH, is your compass, with your pure motives of transparency. "  I turn my head, and see THE OWL.

...I know I am dreaming, I see you often here!

"I am your protector, I give you courage, and certainty. You may now come and go...stealthy, without being seen or heard.
You are the master of the shadows!!! You know the way, beyond death. It is TIME now, to go beyond the walls that confine you. Toss all cares to the wind.
Release your needs in life, LET GO.
You will be blessed with the right people, and the right situations.

Allow this headdress, I am placing upon you now as you place your sleepy body upon your pillow, and begin to drift deeper into dream realm..."
You are safe.

"I am safe... " I repeat... My Conscious mind knowing good times are on the horizon.  I willingly go forward.

The Owl begins again,…

Maria's Optimal Method To Calming the Brain

Image
Our world is crazy! I have to tune out to tune into me. Not everyone does this. In my healing center, I see clients day in and day out who are living stress. Some really take it out on their bodies, others, are doing everything they can to manage the stresses, and that is why I am apart of their healthcare. Certainly we need to be eating nutritious foods, high density nutrients. We need to be exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep. This is simply to maintain, repair, and rest...so our mood, emotions and cognition are improved. We all need more stress-reducing in our lives...the quiet separation from our third world, trauma, drama...mama!

Here is what I recommend to improve your anti-stress resilience factors:

  Choose an 
activity that makes you feel good
you might need to think back to childhood. 
Be curious, and playful with this. Maybe it is art, or reading, or movies, or... Football with buddies! 
     For me, I like to get out, and walk my dog in nature, next to the lake…

A MUST DO: Evening Energy Cleanse

Image
Indulge in AURIC Cleansing Showers NIGHTLY... 
     The spiritual properties of water doesn't just clear your energy, it removes negative energy, it removes dense, stagnant, and negative energy. Water can also bring you energy! Restorative, creative, healing energy.

     As we are spirits having a human experience,  we naturally, and unknowingly collect negative energies (energy from other people and places) : all day long, and everywhere you go.        I personally, make it a practice to protect, and remove others energy, and negativity before going to bed each night. NO WAY am I going to take that crap with me to bed. How could I possibly obtain a good night's sleep? How could I restore fully?

     We are all aware that showers clean your body. Well, we also have showers you take to clean your aura!!! It is often referred to as a "Psychic Shower", and best taken in the evenings. A psychic shower before bed will help you to deep relaxation, a better night's sleep…
