MY TOOLBOX

If it were only as simple as a few puffs… cannabis, patience and a lot of soul searching.

TOOLS

MEDITATION

Transcendental Meditation. I gauge my mental health by the quality of my meditation. An investment that pays me back daily.

MANTRAS

Mine is “It’s in Gods hands.” I say it to myself while I fall asleep, the second I wake up, and many annoying moments in between. Nervous system reset.

SIMPLICITY AND SELF-ACCEPTANCE

The practice of simplicity and self-acceptance navigating my choices has brought me growth and inner peace every single step of the way.

TANTRA

Sensuality, sexuality, spirituality, energy weaving and expansion. Partner/no partner…that’s irrelevant. Many call it The Way.

QUIET AND REST

Essential for mental health and higher thinking.

PRAYER AND SPIRITUALITY

My answers come through the timing of my daily hits and misses that coincide with physical people, words or events. And they are loud and clear when my mind, body and spirit are completely in sync. This is my all day, ongoing, never ending, always thought provoking conversation with God.

YOGA

The art of being light through the breath.

THE SUN AND SUNSHINE

I wake up with the sunrise. It connects me to the Earth and stimulates my mind and spirit in the most gentle, quiet and beautiful way. Those first few minutes soaking in the bright sun…heaven

AYURVEDIC MEDICINE

Follow the Earth’s cycle without rigid rules.

FRIENDSHIP

The most underrated medicine.

JOURNALING

A great way to stop the circling.
Here’s how mine goes.
Dear God,
Vent! Write what you wouldn’t dare say out loud.
What could you have done to make it better? (If you say nothing, try again.)
What was the lesson?
How are you prepared to do better the next time?
Thank you for….fill in the blank
I love you.

CANNABIS

A gift from Mother Nature that I can tailor to my needs. It’s a tool for higher thinking both spiritually and intellectually — I owe my finance career to this plant. It calms my nervous system, which makes everything better. And it puts me in a better mood every single time. The quality of my life is much better because of her:)

PLEASURE

Or what’s the point of all of this?

MOVE

Most cannabis people dance in the mirror. It’s true. I took an Instagram poll, 89 PCT said yes:) The Class (Newsletter No.10), Gyrotonic and Feldenkrais are also in this mix.

WEEP OR ROAR

Get the anger and frustration out. Seriously, GET IT THE FUCK OUT OF THE BODY. Taryn Toomey cracked this one open for me. Newsletter No.10

MUSIC

I hope in this life I’ll be able to put into words what music and my precious headphones do for me.

SOCIAL MEDIA BREAKS

Take a long break from the mind junk. A great way to recenter and feel human again.

VIDEOS

This is a new one, and wildly effective. Stay tuned for a better explanation…giving it a few more weeks.

 

BE LOVE AND WISH EVERYONE WELL

The Goal.

There’s no such thing
as finding balance.
Life is a balancing act.
