I was incredibly honored to be a guest on the Live Fab Life Podcast, hosted by my friend and professional colleague, Naomi Nakamura, who is a Holistic Health Coach and is also a high tech professional. Her podcasts are super informative and she’s a fantastic interviewer. Naomi shares her own journey to healing and interviews experts of various modalities of holistic health that align with her work on herself and with her clients.
While nutritional therapy is foundational to healing, it’s only one part of your overall well-being. Considering healthy sleep habits, stress reduction, appropriate movement, adequate sunlight, avoidance of environmental toxins in your home and in your self care products are of necessary too. Equally important is finding a way to stop toxic thoughts and to heal emotional scars that tend to haunt us if not dealt with in a manner which lets us release them. These are underlying stressors that also affect the health of our mind-body-spirit.
My own journey to healing actually started with learning to become more mindful and while I couldn’t meditate for the life of me, learning Reiki, as a guided meditation was an incredible powerful tool that “calmed my inner storm” which empowered me to live for a bit in the present moment, releasing the pain, and gracing upon me, a glimmer of hope. I also share how powerful Emotional Freedom Technique (EMF) is, which I have written about in a couple of my posts (this one in particular). In all the work that I have done to help myself heal, this was a missing piece that helped me become more fully myself…rather than “what has happened to me.” Lastly, forgiveness of not just others, which I find easy these day, but forgiveness of myself. That has given me the most freedom.
I get super vulnerable in this podcast. The work of Brene’ Brown has encouraged me to share my struggles so that others can find hope and know that they are not alone. They are not the only ones and often, there doesn’t even have to be anything outwardly amiss in your life. Sometimes it is living in a way that doesn’t nourish your soul, and other times it’s because there is actual dysfunction in your body which affect your thoughts and feelings in a way you never considered. Please know, if you are in anyway not feeling or living your best life, you can get there. I hear you, I see you. There is hope, there is always hope. ❤️
