What Healing Events Mean to Me - Naomi Nicholson
You might think to yourself, "why does a fitness studio offer 'Healing Events'"? What does chanting and breathwork have to do with my fitness goals? Well, I am a strong believer in "what you think about, you bring about". This pertains to every area of our lives. If you constantly think that you aren't strong enough, you aren't thin enough, you aren't good enough.... then these things are the things that will keep showing up for you and making you believe those sentiments to be true. Learning how to shift our thoughts, our perspective, our overall outlook on life is definitely harder than picking up a 5lb hand weight! You come to the studio 2, 3, 4 times a week and you feel the results, you see the results. But how much time do you spend on your soul? On creating the life you want by learning how to control your thoughts and emotions.
This has been a work in progress for me for many years and continues to be. I feel blessed by the fact that I am inspired and motivated to put that effort into myself. That my mental peace of mind is worth just as much attention as my physical body. Every night before bed I take a few minutes to write my gratitude journal. Sometimes I am thankful for coffee (let's be honest who isn't!?) and sometimes my hand gets a cramp because I have so so many things that I am so incredibly thankful for. I've noticed that even on the absolute toughest days there is always something to be thankful for (like the aforementioned coffee :)). In "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne, it says "the more you're thankful for, the more you HAVE to be thankful for". It also says what "what you think about, you bring about".. Isn't it amazing to know that? To know that we hold so much power?? For me these healing events are such a strong reminder of that, whether I'm deep into Breathwork Healing, chanting at Kundalini or just lying still and allowing myself to be restored and pampered at Yoga/Acupuncture.
I want everyone to know that these beautiful gifts are out there to help you in every aspect of your life. All you have to do is show up..
