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.

    Meditation for Strengthening Your Intuition and Trusting Yourself

As many of you know, I am leaving on my big trip today and my spiritual practice has been reflective of this.  I have been working on strengthening my intuition and developing a deeper sense of trust in my own instincts.

This practice draws its roots from Kundalini Yoga which clearly states that reality can only be experienced through intuition.  If it is your mind or fears controlling you, this is merely illusion.
Trusting your self and your intuitive instincts will help to guide you in all areas of your life…your health, relationships, recovery and is the most powerful connection that you have with divine energy.
As in my Chakra Balancing Meditation, the key of this practice is to focus on expansion:
1. Sit with a tall, straight spine
2. Fold your hands at your heart center with pointer finger up (like a Charlie’s Angels gun)
3. Focus on your Manipura 3rd Chakra just below the navel.  The colour should be a vibrant golden yellow, if it is not, bring your breath and energy there and experience the colour getting brighter.
4. Form a ring with your lips like you are going to say the letter ‘O’ and begin to breath inhaling for 4 seconds, exhaling for 4 seconds with your hands folded at your heart in the mudra.
5. As you breath envision a white light circling around your skull and entering through your Sahasrara 7th or crown chakra.
6. Work on this breathing until you intuitively have completed.
7. Once you have completed your breathing, sit for at least 5-10 minutes in the after glow as this is when your intuition will begin to speak to you and give you messages. Listen.
