    Ep# 41 The Model for Change-Power of Thoughts

    Ep# 41 The Model for Change-Power of Thoughts

    When we take responsibility for our experiences, we are empowered and 'able to respond' to the circumstances in our lives rather than play a victim.

    And it all starts at the subtle level of thought. We have the power to choose our thoughts, feelings, actions, and ultimately the results we get in our life.

    In this episode I explain how Vedanta philosophy teaches that our world is created by our minds and thoughts.

    I also share practical examples of how to shift your thoughts and tools you can use to effectively choose your thoughts and emotions.

    Change your life one thought at a time.

    Ep #40 Listen to the Soul, not the Ego. Prajnaparadha.

    Ep #40 Listen to the Soul, not the Ego. Prajnaparadha.

    Prajnaparadha: Doing what we know we should not is a core cause of disease and suffering. Our intellect wants to do what is best for us, but is given conflicting information from our senses/ego and the soul.

    It can be difficult to hear the voice of the soul, but when we can overcome the ego's loud shouts and hear the whisper of soul wisdom, we will find our way to balance.

    Ways to heal/Journaling Questions:

    1. Pay attention to when you feel well to contrast with when you start to notice small imbalances. Keep a record of these.
    2. Be kind and learn to forgive yourself for not always making the best choices. Take accountability for your choices and see the impact they are having on your life.
    3. Take inventory of your habits and behaviors the detract from your good and happy life.
    4. Choose one habit to change. Pause before making a decision in that area and ask yourself: Will this decision take me closer to or further from my life's purpose or goals?
    5. Respect your intuition and follow the voice of the soul, not matter how small the prompting.

    Ep #39 Detox and Cleanse the Ayurveda Way

    Ep #39 Detox and Cleanse the Ayurveda Way

    In Ayurveda we understand that toxins or ama build up in the body and shows up as headaches, illness, fatigue, constipation, rashes and more.

    To cleanse our body of these toxins, a seasonal cleanse is a foundational part of Ayurveda.

    At the break between winter and spring and again between summer and fall a 7-10 day cleanse is vital to health.

    Learn more about how each dosha tends to experience weight, what an Ayurvedic cleanse looks like, and how you can start to remove ama from your body and mind.

    Ep #38 Feeding a Family with Different Doshas

    When trying to feed a group of people, or a family, it can feel confusing to accommodate the various doshic balances.

    In this podcast I teach three principles you can follow to make meal planning for a group easy, along with meal ideas that work for every group.

    You can eat Ayurvedically for different doshas and still prepare just one meal. Listen to learn how.

    Ep #37 Change with Effort and Surrender

    Ep #37 Change with Effort and Surrender

    Abhyasa-constant practice, and Vairagya -non-attachment and letting go, are two necessary parts of creating an Ayurvedic life.

    To change a thought, behavior, action and come from your highest self requires more than wishing and hoping. It takes commitment to practice and an ability to let go of the things holding you back in your efforts.

    In this episode we talk about real life application of these principles, and hear about how to make lasting change through our thoughts and being present.

    Resources:
    Marianne Williamson-A Return to Love
    Patanjali-Yoga Sutras
    Lao Tzu- "The Master sticks to her tools."

    “Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.

    All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

    Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”

Hair Bliss ,

Thanks for making things simple

Wow! From understanding Ayurveda to dealing with Drama, and sharing personal crises. Lady you make it all sound like a cake walk. Thanks for showing how Ayurveda is a life style and practice that is invaluable.

klustic ,

Highly recommend!

I met with Heather for an Ayurvedic consult months ago, and I learned something that has stuck with me ever since. Eating slower and more consciously are big Ayurvedic principles that she taught me, along with many different types of food more appropriate for my specific dosha. I am positive that has rid my body of some uncomfortable side effects I was constantly experiencing, like gas and constipation. I would highly recommend meeting with Heather- she is so easy to talk to and is just a wealth of knowledge. I am 100% confident you will not regret scheduling a consult with her!
