Awaken To A Deeper Experience Of Yourself

“I realized Sarah was struggling with a serious injury that had her sidelined from running unfortunately and wasn’t sure if she’d return to running after the surgery she underwent. Fast forward after a tumultuous journey that in turn awakened her to enlightenment not only in running but all area’s of her life, Sarah just qualified for the Olympic trials at the California International Marathon with an impressive time… Her story leading up to her race is riveting and a true testament to strength will grace, and most definitely the power of the mind body spirit connection”

The Morning Ritual of Designer Rita Ghanime

“My Morning Routine feels like this…
I wake up at 6 am, flick on my set of pink Christmas lights that stay in my room all year round. It feels like love and my room glows! I turn on a mantra (now listening to one by Guru Sing ‘Ong So Hung’) to permeate my room in its vibration. I light a candle and maybe some incense on my beside alter, then wash my face- I love Recherche Beaute cashmere cream wash. I then set my tea kettle on and wait to fill my favorite Yogi Green Tea Antioxidant in an oversized mug. This whole prep process takes about 15 minutes and it’s my ritualistic prelude to my meditation.”

– Practice Forgiveness:

Forgive yourself and others and release the past. Those you don’t forgive will be energetically bound to you and keep you in your lower self, the ego. So let all past pain and hurt go.

– Practice Gratitude:

Use healing practices to clear anything that might be blocking your connection to your Higher Self. When joy and gratitude and creative energy fill your heart, that is, when you feel good, your alignment with Spirit is healthy and strong.

– Recognize and remove any limiting beliefs:

We all pick up limiting beliefs somewhere; the false beliefs along our journey that keep us from being our best. These limiting beliefs can even cause you pain and suffering. Try to look at all the things you believe in and find out why you have that belief.

– Build Positive Momentum:

Building positive momentum is very essential on the spiritual path. Focus every day on one positive momentum step you would like to work on and commit to it throughout your day. Use powerful resonant mantra’s and recite them daily.
