The Seven Secrets of Success
There are many stories shared in the Hindu traditions that provide helpful knowledge on how to attain enlightenment. While rooting around the internet one day I stumbled upon the Sivana East website, whose blog posts range from yoga ideas to mindfulness and meditation. This week I ran into Shiva's Seven Secrets of Success.
3 Mindsets that are Damaging Your Well-Being
This one's a little bit of a tougher read because you may find some of these mindsets in yourself. The first step in any change is to recognize it happening. This blog post by the lovely Wholeheartedly Laura skims the surface of these mindsets; especially the body stories! (If you are interested in re-working those body stories but are not sure where to start check-out our online course, Elemental Body Stories!)
"I love my biz, but hate asking for money."
THIS! Any other entrepreneurs have a hard time with this? For a lot of us our mindset on money is limited to a "lack" mentality. As we work through our money blocks the stories often go that money seems to flow abundantly to you. Anyone else having a hard time here?
Measuring Success as a Writer or Artist: A Basic Guide to Happiness
Sometimes is just about how you define success. Though this article is written from an artist, writer, creative profession I believe no matter what we do success is really what you decide. I also really enjoy how this author explains that money shouldn't be an ideal, but rather a tool. Does this ring true for you as well?
Have You Failed Lately? Thoughts On Growth And Challenge In Belly Dance
Along the same lines; if you're in a creative profession, or really any hobby/job, how often are you "failing"? We learn so much more by that "failure" than the "good job" points from just getting it done. Try new things. Fail. Learn. Create more.
Hoping one or two of these sparked something within you.
I'd love to chat about it if you want to leave a comment below.

What stories would your body share if it could speak for you?
Would it tell of the gall bladder surgery when you were thirteen or of the beautiful dance performance with that gorgeous group in Las Vegas on a legendary stage? Perhaps that tooth you lost when you got hit by a snowball? Or maybe how your fingernails feel fancy when they're freshly painted?
What stories do you tell your body?
Do you stare in the mirror with love or ..... ?
Often times our body stories are a mix of our past and our feelings.
The wanting to be something that we aren't right now and not enjoying the journey or the present moment.
I'm all for tuning out social media and turning your phone off every now again, but hear me out! Perhaps your cellphone could be your most mindful tool yet. Based on the apps and settings you have in place your phone could be a great tool for wellness, mindfulness, magic and meditation.
Let's dive deeper...
Continuing on with our Moon Cycle Series, let's check in with the New Moon! As we start our new year journeys we're beginning the year with a new moon on Saturday, the 5th. This is like getting a second start for those new year intentions with a bit of extra oomph from the universe.
First up, the new moon occurs when we don't 'see' a moon in the sky. Obviously it's still there it's just not reflecting sun light since it's positioned between the Earth and the Sun. Some people will call this the dark moon, since the light is not being reflected back towards us. (Want to learn more about the science?)
The science is grand, but I'm more into connecting to the vibes and I'm guessing you are too if you're reading my blog. (ha ha)
New moon vibes are ALL about starting fresh. We've got a clean slate since we released what doesn't serve us during the waning moon cycle. Now is the time to begin new things. Try something new. Start a new hobby, work-out, etc.
I first did this photo blog back in 2016, moving into 2017. I was just looking at last year's thinking how far I have come in a year! Sure, looking back in my journal I may have thought the same thing, but seeing it through an image stirs up so much more. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words!
So this post is more for me, #sorrynotsorry. However, I do encourage you to look back at your year and take some time to reflect how far you have come, who you are now and where you are going in 2019. <3
