Today I would like you to answer your own prayer. Is there a silent wish that you have been making? See if you can do fulfill your wish today. It could be for a thing you have been wishing for – or it could be for a state of mind. Maybe you can be extra kind to yourself, eat your favorite treat with no guilt, go for a walk, smell some flowers (did you notice that we have them now!), call a friend or family member that you love, love love, get a book from the library that is fun, take a bath or long shower, look at the stars and breathe….

Undercover Angels, Day 5: Compliments

undercover angels, minneapoils best acupuncturist, complimentsDay 5 of Undercover Angels: Accepting Compliments

Are you good at accepting compliments ? As a light worker, it’s time to build those muscles!

Accepting a compliment is a kindness, both to yourself and to others, and it’s a skill. Here are a few things to think about…

First of all, it may feel uncomfortable. I would like to remind you that there are industries built upon making you feel defective and small, so having someone tell you that you are fantastic may not always feel good. That is okay. I would encourage you to lovingly breathe through the discomfort. (or journal, or talk to someone or do anything that will help you to hold space for yourself if a loving way).

I hope that you are well and ready to start this beautiful week!  Today let’s focus upon our eating. I would like to keep you away from the trap of what to eat, however. If we all could peacefully eat today we could start a revolution! See if you can take some time at one meal today to breathe and focus on the moment. What does the food feel like? How does it taste? How does it feel? Just breathe and see if you can feel your body being nourished, and feel some gratitude! Let your meal reinforce just how BLESSED you are!

The Spring Cleanse: How to Support Our Bodies

cleanse, minneapolis acupuncture, minneapolis spring cleanseIt’s Cleanse Season:  Support the Bodies Natural Purification Process.

Many people come to me each spring wondering about what would be the best way to help their body cleanse after a long winter filled with filling rich foods.  People will ask about cleanses from the store – usually with herbs that can be helpful to clean out the body or they may look to a particular diet – either one that will focus upon foods that will clean the body (especially the liver) or food that will purge out accumulated junk that built up during our long winters.

Good Posture: Whats the Point?

by:  Bill Easter, PT, MPH

“Sit up straight, get your shoulders back, stop slouching, you have bad posture,” we are told, but what does it all mean and why is posture so important?  If you are standing in a crowd of people or a clinic and someone mentions posture, there is a knee jerk response,and people will simultaneously stand in an erect position for 5 maybe 10 seconds, looking around with guilt expressions on their faces (echoes from our parents or our primary and secondary school days).  Posture is firmly engrained in our minds but remains very elusive and often misunderstood.

The Too Busy Complex: Just Pause

by: Kara Marell

Too Busy, Minneapolis Acupuncture, Minneapolis Healing CenterWhen We Become Too Busy, PAUSE

I catch myself saying “I am too busy for ___” , when in reality I know I am not. I am ‘too busy’ because I am making a choice, and prioritizing other things. You’re only as busy as you allow yourself to feel. It’s about allowing for the pause.
