Saying Goodbye is so hard…..

Saying goodbye is one of the hardest things to do especially when we know it is forever.

This week we lost an amazing horse “Sir Lancelot”. He was part of my training program for three years and not only did I enjoy training him, showing him, and loving him, but I also loved teaching his owner “his” new riding style that he requested. He taught me so much. He taught me how to stand in my power and how being a great leader requires strength, kindness and compassion. I will miss him dearly. Most of all I know how much my friend’s heart is aching. He will continue to be a part of “my training” just in a different place and like Lionheart said ” He is not lost, he is just not in this form anymore”.

Tribute from Lance

I’ll reach for you with my muzzle in the cold of winter.

I’ll ride with you in the heat of summer.

But if my short life can’t reach the dawn of spring.

I promise, in heaven, I’ll reach you with my wings.

Good Vibrations

As a mother and Reiki master I understand the importance of positive and negative energies. When my daughter was coming home from school feeling drained and upset with any requests I asked, and me getting frustrated with her, I knew I had to help her {for the sake of the family :)}.  I had to come up with a tool that she could use instead of holding this negative energy that would allow her to shift herself.  I came up with the gratitude jar.

I was looking at an empty cookie jar thinking what will I put into this jar….cookies….treats… candy….fruit….and then it dawned on me Happiness.

What we do is everyday at the end of our dinner we write, draw, doodle (from her 2-year-old brother) a positive thing that happened today.  It can be anything from something nice you did, what made you feel good today, and even something nice that some one did for you.  At the end of the month we will have a “gratitude celebration” where we take out all the notes from the jar and look at all the wonderful things that happened in the month and celebrate the joy that we are part of and of course repeat this every month.

I am then going to collect these notes and copy them and make a gratitude journal for the family so we can take a look back into when we feel the negative energies creeping in and may even become a great bed time story /quiet time addition to our library.

Sometimes we get so busy and we forget how important it is to bring joy and kindness into our lives and especially our families. Even more important is when you find your family falling down the slippery slope of negative energy when everyone is fighting, and screaming, and time outs have been exhausted and you are exhausted. You can turn the channel to something good. Which just might help everyone see the good in each other and could shift the house into the positive transition of working together and creating the space you desire.

Watch the children get encouraged by positive thinking and see everyone in your family begin to  feel the ripple effect and the power of acknowledging acts of kindness and start feeling these good vibrations.

Equine Sessions Clinics

This year has been very interesting .  I have had so much going on …OmMANNA sales have been doing great ! My new Reiki room has been done and ready to take on more clients, started as an EAL {Equine assisted learning} facilitator at Northbase Ranch.  Last, but not least, I am beginning Equine therapy where horses and I help the client find what does not serve them and begin the process of discovering who they truly are and help guide them on the path they are meant to be on.  Check out my page “Equine Session clinics” for more information and feel free to contact me and book your journey today!

A Healthy YOU!

This is the year of changes and that means improving your whole health including the body, mind and soul. This begins with OmMANNA, and a healthy life style. We are all beginning to seek out alternative therapies that have been practiced and proved we call it “New Age” when in fact some have been practiced for centuries and we are now understanding the power of our natural environment.  One ancient technique is Indian, Ayurveda is the ancient medical system of India. It offers one of the fastest paths to health. Instead of having to guess which foods, supplements, and behaviors are appropriate for you, there is a simple, direct prescriptive path that is developed for your unique body type, or dosha.  This takes all the guesswork out of getting healthy. The benefits that occur are not only felt in your body – they are also seen in your mental and emotional wellbeing. This holistic approach to health allows you to become a balanced, vital, happy person with the least amount of effort. Ayurveda is an ancient solution to our modern-day problems that need quick, effective solutions.   The three ayurvedic body types, or doshas, are Vata, Pitta and Kapha.  Each dosha has a unique set of characteristics. There are several ways to determine your body type.  The most accurate is through the detailed history and physical by an ayurvedic physician. However, even taking a quick ayurvedic quiz will provide you with tremendous insight into your principal dosha. Most people are a combination of two doshas, but one typically predominates

.The Kapha Dosha Kapha is typically the largest of the body types. Physically, they have wide hips/shoulders; thick wavy hair; good physical stamina. Mentally, Kapha types tend to me slow to learn, but they have great memories. Emotionally, they tend to be very loyal, stable, and reliable – they are often referred to as the “rocks” in a relationship.    Out of balance, Kapha individuals have a tendency towards sinus congestion, poor circulation, and sluggish digestion that can easily lead to obesity. To combat the congestion, Kapha types can add garlic to their diet or take garlic supplements. To help improve circulation, they can do a stimulating dry body massage, called garshana, performed with raw silk gloves – you can use a loofah sponge as a substitute. The massage helps get rid of excess water weight and is a natural cure for cellulite. To help boost metabolism, Kapha individuals can use the herbal supplement guggul, which is a plant that is closely related to myrrh. The dose of guggul is typically 75mg-150mg a day. Exercise is also critical to keep Kapha people in balance; if you have a Kapha body type, you have to get up and move! From a diet standpoint, Kapha people should reduce oil/fats, sweets and salt as much as possible due to their sluggish digestion. Instead, they should focus on cooking with lots of spices, eating large amount of vegetables, and high fiber foods such as legumes.

The Pitta Dosha Pitta individuals are typically of medium build. Physically, they have good muscle tone; have a tendency to always feel warm; have premature graying hair or balding; have reddish complexions; enjoy high energy levels; and have really strong digestion – they can eat almost anything. Mentally, they are extremely intelligent, focused, ambitious people. Emotionally, they are passionate about life, have a tendency to be perfectionists, and can become easily irritated.   Out of balance, Pitta types can experience excessive anger, suffer from inflammatory conditions (such as headaches and rashes), encounter digestive problems (such as acid reflux, diarrhea and ulcers), and become over-stressed, workaholics. To help with the inflammation, Pitta individuals can do a quick coconut oil massage to the scalp and feet for 5 minutes before getting into the shower. To prevent the digestive problems, they can drink a mixture of a quarter-cup of aloe vera juice with a half-cup of pomegranate juice in the morning on an empty stomach. To help take the “edge off” at work and fight off stress in these worker bees, they should eat a teaspoon of rose petal jam – it can be taken alone or with toast. The rose petal jam is sweet and calming.    In terms of their diet, Pitta people should avoid hot spices, alcohol, coffee, vinegar, and acidic foods like citrus and tomatoes. Of course, these are typically their favorite foods! They should eat sweet juicy fruits such as mangos and melons. They should also include lots of cooling vegetables with high water content, such as cucumbers, kale and lettuce, in their diet.

The Vata Dosha

The third dosha, Vata, tends to be the most slender of the three body types. Vata people can actually find it difficult to gain weight. Physically, Vata individuals are thin with prominent bony structures; tend to be cold all the time; have dry skin and hair; and have little muscle tone. Mentally, they learn fast and forget fast, enjoy change, and are very creative. Emotionally, Vata types are excitable, enthusiastic, but can become easily anxious.   Out of balance, Vata individuals can have poor digestion with lots of bloating and constipation. They can have dry nasal passages and easily catch colds during the fall and winter. They can also easily develop insomnia and fatigue. To help with the digestion, there is an herbal supplement, Triphala, which is a lifesaver for people with a Vata imbalance. To prevent dry nasal passages and fight off colds, Vata individuals can use a sesame oil nasal spray – you just spray 1-2 sprays in each nostril in the mornings. To fight off insomnia, a regular routine is critical, which, of course, Vata individuals tend to resist. Nonetheless, they should be waking up at the same time, eating lunch at the same time, and going to bed at the same time. Additionally, Vata types will benefit from a warm, spiced milk drink at bedtime.  The dietary recommendations for Vata individuals are to avoid dry/crunchy foods, carbonated beverages, and cold/raw vegetables. Their ideal diet consists of warm, cooked, soupy foods; cooked cereals; nuts; cooked vegetables; and hot milk. Also, ghee, which is clarified butter, is particularly good for Vata individuals.
