Intuition: A Building Block for a Healthy Body

intuition

Intuition is the supra-logic that cuts out all the routine processes of thought and leaps straight from the problem to the answer – Robert Graves

This post is a little out of the realm of health coaching, but definitely more around the holistic side of life. I’ve been inspired to share my thoughts on intuition, as I am currently undertaking an 8 week program on Living Intuitively run by The Little Sage.

It’s been such a special time for me to go inward and find out more about myself and my purpose, and to build self-trust. I’m currently in Week 3, and I’ve already noticed a difference in the way I meditate. I’ve been on a quest to meditate for 2 years now, with varying success. But suddenly I have found it much easier to reach that relaxation state where my entire focus is inward. I feel like I am connecting with my intuition – my “true” self.

What is intuition? Let’s ask Dr Deepak Chopra…

how to love your body

Today, I’m so proud to share with you guest blog post from my wonderful friend and life coach, Rachelle Hawken!

Over to you, Rachelle…

bodylove

I want to talk about body love.

Guiding women to appreciating their bodies and what they are capable of is so important to me as a life coach because I have seen firsthand what happens to a woman when she makes this transition.

So many of my clients tell me that they want to lose weight or gain a certain level of fitness. They have a deep sense of insecurity or anxiety that sits with them constantly, they plan their weeks with the best intentions to exercise at 110% effort, 5 to 7 days a week and can be quite restrictive with what they choose to eat. Of course, this rarely, if ever, goes according to plan and so these beautiful women berate themselves for not achieving something that was mostly unrealistic. It’s a downward spiral as they feel more and more despondent about the thought of never being able to have the perfect body. I absolutely love my work, encouraging women to drop their negative perspectives on food, weight, exercise and appearance and transform the way they see the process.

I know exactly what it’s like because I’ve been there.

What is body love exactly?

why i write….

 

RachelleI’ve been nominated by the lovely Rachelle from My Saturn Epoch to participate in this blog-hop series, to reflect on why I write for you all.

I had the pleasure of Rachelle’s life coaching program earlier this year and have had my world turned upside, or “flipped on it’s head” as Rachelle would say!

Since I’ve been nominated, I have seen this series pop up on many different blogs and I’ve found it so inspiring to read each woman’s take  on how and why they share their message.

So here’s my take on things:

What am I working on?

After finishing my ebook recently, I’ve started to shift my focus back research. I’m catching up on podcasts, video series and books to dive deeper into all things hormonal, nutritional and inspirational.  So I guess the next logical step is to share my knowledge through some more blog posts!

Keep an eye out for:

  • a blog post on natural cold remedies
  • a review on an earthing sheet for my bed and an earthing mat for my desk at work
  • a printed brochure explaining what I do
  • book reviews on my latest reads
How does my writing differ from others in this genre?

Eating Offal

Did you know that wild animals eat the organs of their kill before eating anything else? Eating with intuition I suppose…

Organ meats are extremely rich in antioxidants, vitamins A and D and plenty of macro and trace minerals.  They also contain essential fatty acids (the ones our body’s can’t create) and very-long-chain superunsaturated fatty acids.

Growing up, I loved eating Liverwurst, until I found out what it was. So it’s been a while since I’ve touched organ meats. However, one of my goals for 2014 is to incorporate organ meats into my diet. So recently I made my own pate.

Referring to my all time favourite cookbook, Nourishing Traditions, written by my idol, Sally Fallon Morell, I  whipped up this delicious spread in under 30 minutes.

How to?

Delicious organic chicken liver, portobello mushrooms, garlic, onion, ghee (clarified butter), rosemary or sage, himalayan salt, a tablespoon of gelatin and a bit of bone broth.

  • Cook the garlic and onion in a bit of ghee (I use the Core Organics brand)
  • Once fragrant, add your mushrooms and cook until you start to see the juices
  • Add a tablespoon of gelatin (I use the Great Lakes brand)
  • Remove from pan and put aside
  • Reheat pan with a bit more ghee and cook the chicken livers until just browned
  • Add the himalayan salt and rosemary/sage and mix through the livers
  • Remove from the pan and allow to cool
