evepostappleOnce upon a time, there was a woman named Eve, who, unable to resist the luring temptation of a fragrant orchard, took a bite of forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. Perhaps Eve was bored. Perhaps she was ovulating and had a desperate craving for something sweet. Perhaps life in the little garden was becoming stressful or claustrophobic. Perhaps she felt out of control or lacked passion in her life and in order to numb her emotions or soothe herself from Adam's lack of attention or his ambivalence in starting a family, she chose to indulge. Perhaps Eve was an emotional eater. But as Eve soon discovered, neither the bite, nor the whole fruit fulfilled her as she had hoped. Not only did she realize she was naked but that she had contempt for the way she looked. Perhaps Eve suffered with body dismorphia. Eve tried to stop eating the forbidden fruit and eventually avoided eating altogether but that didn't work and she ended up eating until she could no longer breathe. The point of this is that Eve lost her intuitive ability to nourish herself. She no longer had balance in her life and was willing to do any and everything to get that back.

Maybe Eve didn't exist. Maybe the stories that were told are not as important as the stories we tell ourselves.

This blog is dedicated to creating new stories based on the philosophies of whole body nutrition, self-love, intuition, fitness and yoga.

In my journey I have sought to uncover the knowledge and balance which have brought me to a greater awareness of health and this is what I wish to share with you.

    Happy Summer Solstice!
Today, we celebrate the longest day of the year - the day of light.

As you look at the sun these days around the Summer Solstice, imagine a point exactly on the other side of sun – that is where you will be six months from now at the Winter Solstice on Dec. 21st. These two points of vision one at the point of greatest darkness and the other at the zenith of light are markers in our extraordinary journey of the year and are central to the guiding the flow of creation, manifestation in many cultures including the roots of yoga in India. The Summer Solstice marks the beginning of the Dakshinaya period where for 6 months the earth moves in the southern or “dakshina” orbit towards the Winter Solstice.  
 - Shiva Rea

This image is of the manipura or solar-plexus chakra that holds our inner fire and thus comes alive during the season of light. 
Find a place to meditate today where you can soak up the light and sun, as you meditate to day, enliven your manipura chakra it with the bija mantra “RAM” repeated 108 times.
