Seven Ways You’re Wasting Energy and Creating Exhaustion

When I started exploring the root cause my fatigue, I explored the relationship between our body and our energy centers, or chakras, specifically the solar plexus chakra. The solar plexus is associated with personal power, ego, self-worth, confidence, accomplishment, transformation, and our ability to visualize success. Physically it’s connected to the liver, gallbladder, spleen, stomach, small intestine, adrenals, mid-spine area, and pancreas.

When this area has a physical imbalance, we may experience chronic fatigue, eating disorders and more. Emotionally we may experience powerlessness, greed, doubt, anger, indecision, lack of motivation or willpower, need to control, dishonoring self, low-self esteem and fear.

8 Ways Meditation Helped Me Recover from Hashimoto Hypothyroidism, Adrenal Fatigue and Leaky Gut

Even though there were some incredible highs, like getting married, last year was one of the most challenging years of my life. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto Hypothyroiditis (hypothyroidism), adrenal exhaustion and leaky gut (candida). I went from being a vibrant, athletic, social, creative, happy person to someone who felt like she was merely surviving. The healing process ended up being long and full of many lessons and lifestyle changes.

And guess what? Meditation helped me through all stages of my recovery. Even if you don’t have direct experience with the stress-related conditions I mentioned above, I bet you can relate to a time when you felt sick, stuck, a little hopeless, frustrated, sad or confused. If so, let me share with you how meditation helped me through all of those feelings…

The #1 Way Your Ego Is Sabotaging Your Meditation

Our high expectations plus the desire for instant gratification can lead to an unpleasant meditation experience. 🙁 Have you ever noticed that it’s easy to live for those peaceful moments in our meditations and begrudge the moments of struggle? While we want that instant gratification, it’s often those moments of struggle that lead to the greatest peace, if we can hang in there! Plus, a lot of amazing processes, such as stress release, occur in those moments when we want to scream and give up. In today’s vlog I talk about how our ego is creating those expectations and what you can do to release them!

The Truth About Meditation

Everyone has heard they “should” meditate. The benefits are well known, buuuuut the image of it might be scaring you off or leaving you with some misconceptions. Normally we see the image of the peaceful yogi at sunset with a blissful facial expression. Sound familiar?

Well, while I have MOMENTS of that when I meditate, often it’s quite different. It usually starts with some racing thoughts, then I experience some emotions I’ve been avoiding. But it’s how I handle those thoughts and emotions that create the meditation experience. 🙂 In this week’s video I describe what the meditation process is actually like. Hint: It’s not about having no thoughts.

And P.S., if you’re curious about mediation, or want to learn more about it, I’m launching a new meditation series next week, Naturally High (because that’s how I often feel after I meditate)! Click here to get on the list (and receive 25% off). In addition to meditations, I’m sharing my best meditation tips. You don’t have to be a yogi, or a vegan, woo woo, or anything else to allow the benefits of meditation into your life. Mediation is for everyone, and I’ll show you how during Naturally High. 🙂

Meditation Is Like Hosting a Cocktail Party

I commonly hear, “but my mind won’t stop,” when I lead people through meditations. We have the perception that meditation is a peaceful, enjoyable experience based on the pictures we’ve seen of people doing it. But, what’s really going on inside can be a totally different story! Unknowingly a recent meditation student gave me the perfect meditation metaphor.

Check out this week’s video, in which I share the commonalities between meditating and cocktail partying. 😉 If you’ve ever been to or hosted a cocktail party you’ve enjoyed,  you can use that as guidance during your next meditation. 🙂

P.S. I’m super excited to launch a new meditation series in March. To get on the waitlist for my meditation series, launching in March, click here.
