Why do I live in a world that shames you for not drinking?

Good morning beautiful souls! I’m off on yet another wonderful life adventure, because change is where the magic lies.

I’m officially 3 weeks into the no alcohol game and I had to write about it. I’m not here to compare my life to yours, or to judge you. I don’t care if you drink or smoke or what you do. I’m simply sharing my experiences with you.

Drinking was a habit that I’ve chosen to give up. It doesn’t make me feel good ever. It causes depression and anxiety and so much more. It also makes me avoid life and feeling in general, and since I’ve decided to NOT live on autopilot, this is the best choice for me.

But why do I live in a world that feels as though they can try to shame you into drinking. I’m not shaming your ass into not drinking, so kindly give me the same respect.

I think it goes right along with what I’ve been saying this entire time, this world lacks boundaries everywhere. We have all blurred the lines for so long that we have absolutely no morals.

Stop living by the unwritten rules of social media and this world, and learn how to follow Gods plan for you life.

I think it’s amazing anytime anyone gives up their addictions for a fuller more abundant life. It’s not about being better then anyone else it’s about being better then I was yesterday.

It’s not about being perfect it’s about being real. I wouldn’t say my body has gone through withdrawals but I am for sure noticing subtle differences in myself.

The only negative thing that I really encountered would be that I feel more tired then I ever have. But I’m sure in a few months this will all work itself out.

They say you replace one addiction with another, so I ton up gardening for the first time ever. My Native American ancestors are proud and have given me the wisdom to move forward with faith and grace.

May we all learn to cheer on those that decide to be different. May you be brave enough to show up for yourself.

Intentional fun

Good morning friends! Last night we hosted our first ever Feel Good Friday, and it was a great success.

The idea was to have some intentional fun with friends or family and to do it in a healthy environment. It was an hour and half long and you received 3 different 30 minute classes.

Cardio Drumming

Everyone started their night off together with Miss Emily, and some cardio drumming. The music was pumping and the laughter was infectious. The energy was amazing and so were the people that made this event possible.

Dance Class

After the warm up we split up our groups. Half of them went to dance with Miss Amber, and half of them went to yoga with me. This made it possible to have an adult class and a littles yoga class, since they are completely opposites.

Yoga class

After 30 minutes we switched our classes and the night was complete. It was our goal to create a fun evening full of laughter and healthy play.

Your family and your friends are the most important relationships in your entire world. We all need to learn how to slow down and to relax.

Get it

As we continue into 2021 stay tuned for lots more fun events coming your way, as we continue to partner with Amber and Emily to bring you more presence in your life.

99% of who you are can’t even be seen

Good morning beautiful souls! I hope your all hanging in there and learning to thrive instead of simply surviving.

I know it’s scary sometimes because the government and God have totally different plans, but I’m here to tell you that love always wins.

You’ve been raised to be fearful and to suffer. But I’m here to teach you a new lesson. This one comes from the heart and it has absolutely nothing to do with worldly ways.

The world tells you to look outside yourself for happiness, but it won’t last. Sure you might feel happy for a second when you buy something new, but guess what?!? It wears off and your stuck with you again.

99% of who you are can’t even be seen, so why do you spend so much time trying to make the outside look pretty?

The only reason you have a body is so you can communicate with other bodies. But your not a body, your a soul. That’s why it’s super important to learn to love yourself.

Our world tells you the busier you are the happier you will be, but it’s all a lie. You must learn to be still with you. Your outside accomplishments don’t matter, because those are all earthly things.

But you matter!

Your heart matters! Your dreams matter! Peace matters! Self love matters! Your family matters! Your marriage matters.

If we want to get back to ourselves and live in harmony and love with one another, we must learn to let go of the way we thought our lives were supposed to be, and learn to embrace our souls mission.

If your ready to embrace your whole self we would love for you to join us on the yoga mat. We are creating a safe environment full of feelings and emotions and living awake.

You must stop listening to the news. You must stop injecting yourselves with nonsense. You must be brave and different then the rest, after all that’s why God made you.

I asked God to help me grow, and it started raining

Good morning beautiful souls! I hope this blog post finds you all well. I felt compelled to write to you from the spirit this morning in hopes that you understand what faith is.

As I continue on my journey faith is the one thing that seems to get me through. When it comes to Gods plans they are always so different then the plans we had for ourselves.

I’m often asked how did I get so brave? I’m here to tell you that bravery doesn’t come without fear. I am afraid but I take it to God and I continue to move forward.

I have to have a lot of faith mixed with a lot of fear or I wouldn’t be here today. You see quitting my hair career after 16 years left me vulnerable and with a lot less money.

I went from making $120 every couple of hours to working only 5 hours a week. If you want to talk about a leap of faith then this is it. If you want to learn how to be uncomfortable then give up your income. Ask God what he wants you to do with your life instead of you doing whatever it is that you want.

Somehow and someway he continues to provide for us. I want to give yoga away to everyone and this requires scholarships and donations from the public. I just keep showing up and having faith that I am doing what God wants me to do.

It was awkward as all get out to even think about accepting donations at first, but this is where he has grown my faith by being afraid and trusting.

You see it seems as though we all give to charities and donate our time and money to various organizations, most of them that we don’t know personally. But what if you decided to give locally so you could see your community thrive emotionally?

What if this year you decide to support the balance, community, and connection but in a different sort of way?

I don’t know where my future is headed but I do believe that Gods plans are way bigger then mine could ever be.

Thank you for everything that you have done so far to make Awakened Soul Yoga a success. Maybe you’ve donated mats for my safe place I appreciate you. Maybe you’ve given a lump sum of money for our programs, I appreciate you. Maybe you’ve helped with our events and our supplies, and I appreciate you. Maybe you show up every week to class, I appreciate you. Maybe you bring your kids to class, I appreciate you.

While I have zero clues what the future holds I can tell you that I have faith that it will all work out.

The metamorphosis of a soul is much like a butterfly

Good morning beautiful souls. I’m the only one up on vacation drinking my coffee and writing to the world. I love mornings, because it’s when I’m my best. At night I get really tired and turn into a zombie?!? Learning to accept who you are and who you are not is a huge part of your metamorphosis.

Blessed

The world is changing because it needed to change. You can drag your feet kicking and screaming, but the outcome will be the same. Fear will no longer rule this world or your hearts. It’s been this way for much to long because we as humans live in our fear and pain bodies and don’t know quite how to make it to our souls.

But let me tell you that your soul is where the magic is. Your head is where all the fear lies, and you my dear have choices. The body and the soul live in such close proximity that you might often times confuse them, but the more time you spend learning about you the easier it becomes.

We must shed all of our old ways of thinking, being, and doing and learn a new way to think all together. We must become the watchers of our thoughts, instead of being lost in our thoughts.

We must learn who we are Not, so that we can reclaim who God made us to be. I know the worlds a noisy place, but you my dear one have choices. Every single day you wake up you can start over because the present moment is all you really have.

Let us undo all that we’ve done to ourselves. Let us step out of the rat race of always achieving, wanting and doing more. Because more never was and never will be the answer.

More is the way of mere mortals and humans that think this world is their true world. More will always have you stuck because you’ll never know when enough is enough, and you will always be chasing the next big dream.

Please let go of all that you’ve been and transform into the beautiful butterfly that you were made to be.

Goodbye sweet girl

Good morning! Our family is on a little siesta that we all needed really bad. Unfortunately we had to make some tough decisions before leaving and help our girl cross over the the other side.

Dear madde,

You were the best dog ever. You lived longer then any dog we’ve ever had before. We were so lucky to have 13 amazing years with you.

As your momma it was really hard for me to make the decision. I know that your quality of life wasn’t the same as it used to be. I know that your soul was still just as beautiful as ever, but that your poor little body just couldn’t take it anymore.

Sure we could have waited another week or 2, but because I love you sooooo much, I couldn’t wait and watch you suffer. I myself was in denial for a while, even though I’d mentally been trying to prepare myself for a few months now.

There was not a more human doggie then you . You were so relaxed and chilled and you never barked until your dementia came. You were loved so much by so many that I knew this was going to suck.

Other dogs that we’ve had have tragically had their lives cut short, but I had to make this decision and then try to feel good about it,

I’m so thankful my entire family was able to be there so we could say good it together, I know your free sweet girl running all around and you’ve probably already been born again as a new puppy to an amazing family.

We will miss you! We love you! And you will forever be in our hearts Madde Hayduk!

💜

Doing what’s best for your pet might not always be what’s best for your family.

Creating a new kind of kids

Want to know what imagination looks like?!?
Look below at these beautiful souls.

Can you guess what they are doing?
We are learning that when we’re mad or upset that we can take ourselves away for a moment.

There’s my star 🌟

In this exercise we went and got on our magic carpets and we flew way up high and into the sky. We gently peered off of our mats down below to find the thing we were mad at it.
We then climbed back onto our carpets and breathed ourselves even higher into the sky, where the stars are.

And then we had to look around all of the beautiful stars to find the star that has our name on it and grab it bring close to our hearts.
They have just found their unique star and we will soon start our descent back to the earth. And when we get there we will talk about how different we feel, and how we’re not mad anymore.

Little lights is an amazing adventure and it’s by far one of my favorite gigs yet. It’s amazing what happens when we surrender to our plans and allow our spirits to be used directly by God.

Cancel Culture Can’t Touch Me

Beautiful friends no one can take anything away from you without your permission!
Read it again and say it louder for those in the back.
“You can’t take anything away from me that I don’t give you!”

I know the worlds in a crazy place, but it all had to happen so you can understand how long you’ve been duped by the bad guys.

I’m not going to get into the why or the what but I am going to teach you how I get through all of this.

You see, your wasting a lot of energy on things that don’t even matter. You can’t cancel Dr. Suess from my mind or my childhood.

You don’t have that power! You can “Try” to cancel all the people in the entire world and it’s not going to change a thing in my world.

Guys you must give up the idea that you can worship the world and the lord, because it ain’t happenin! There’s NO half stepping 2021.

I am powerful and full of love and light and I choose to be a leader in a world full of sheep.

Cancel culture doesn’t work on spiritual friends because we don’t play by your rules. We understand that we are only here on earth for a minute and that our souls are traveling through time in our earthly bodies.

If you’ve been feeling lost and upset by the cancel culture why don’t you cancel them, and ask God for a new plan.

Yogi of the month

Please help us cheer on March’s Yogi of the month Kaleigh Saylor 🧘‍♀️

Since starting classes in Belle Center once a week this beautiful girl has shown up to 30 classes, and not even a 3 month siesta in 2020 could stop her.

She reminds me every single day what commitment and grace looks like and I’m so blessed to have her in my life and in our classes.

I asked her if there was anything that she wanted to share with your guys from her heart and here’s what she had to say.

“Yoga has helped me so much! For one, I feel so great every time I leave yoga. Also, it has helped me be able to relax on my own, at home by using what I have learned. And finally, I get to hangout with my favorites every week and have met so many great people “😀

Love your heart beautiful girl, and chant wait to continue to walk beside you in the light.

“Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees”

Do you know what your job is on earth?

Good morning beautiful souls! It’s freaking freezing in ohio and there’s more snow here then we’ve ever seen before in our lifetime.

This morning I am being led by the spirit to write to you all. You see we are all the same and have a very unique mission while we’re here on this earth.

We all have a journey that we must take inside ourselves. It’s scary and crazy at first because when you’ve been asleep your entire entire life lost in your head, it’s kind of scary to wake up from. But you know what’s scarier then waking up?!!?

Never waking up! Never understanding your a soul with a mission sent to evolve into a spiritual being. Understanding who I am and who I’m not has taken a lot of work, but it’s all been worth it. And might I add that once your awake you have to keep waking up over and over and over again. It’s not a one time thing it’s a new way to be.

You have to learn about your mind and it’s job and what affects it has on you. And then you must learn to feel all the shit you’ve been pushing away your entire life, because it’s exhausting and your wasting all of your precious energy fighting a battle your losing.

Only coming from your head will drive you insane and make you the most miserable person around. You are so much more then your thoughts! You are not your brain! You are not your accomplishments! You are not your failures! You are not your ego! You are not your broken! You are love and light and you can find your way to your heart if you try.

Your job is to Wake up from your thoughts. Wake up from the slumber in your mind. Wake up from yourself and your dream like trance 1000 times a day if that’s what it takes. But wake up!

Your mental health struggles are not you, but an ailment of your mind and when you take the time to get your mind healthy your entire life will change. Balance comes from within. Be brave and bold and please turn your light on, and get out of your head.

We need you! The world needs you! But you need you dear one! It’s you that saves yourself.
