All powerful, now to share MORE!

Its always great to be in that space where I feel clear and I can share from a place of strength and be affirmed YES! this is my gift.  The sun is shining, its clear and so too is my path as I have faith in putting my experience towards the future of mental health. Today I
I led a Laughter session at Safe Haven in Arroyo Grande. 
Safe Haven gives support to people with mental health issues ranging from depression, trauma, and anxiety.
 I led a small group with gentle stretches, breathing techniques and laughing for no reason. Its great to see people‚Äôs faces relax and arms uncrossed. A mother and son were in the group and I enjoyed watching their smiles and hearing laughter. One of my favorite exercises is speaking gibberish; allowing us to speak nonsense.  

I have been practicing Laughter Yoga since 2009 and find it a powerful technique to stimulate my nervous system and create positive neural pathway.
At the end of the session, I brought out essential oils to share. Scent can balance our moods and levels of serotonin. I highly recommend a Laughing session to open up areas where you may feel stuck or come together.

Connecting in the chaos

Yes, its easy to feel disconnected.
and confused
and unsure of one's true purpose
we've got to show up. over and over
and I don't know at times what to do or where to go
I know its not out there, its in the small steps
 write the story of my life.
we're connected, in more ways that we know.
beyond the matrix of belief.
