My First Yoga Video

Standard

Hi Friends!

Made my first official Yoga Video 🙂 

It took guts to post this video. I love yoga, always have, and goal set to one day teach it. But… I am not completely comfortable with my body yet, of course – I am in my transformation! My yoga videos are surely not as good as many you’ll see on Instagram. But I am what I am. And as a Beachbody Coach, I think it’s very important to share my journey. Maybe others will be inspired. Who knows? Maybe you 🙂 🙂 

I love this easy stretch. I often do it in the mornings. It’s like a partial Sun Salutation, when you don’t feel like getting on the ground. I crave the first Hasta Uttanasana, where you feel the lengthening of the back as you reach up to the sky.

You can hang in forward fold for a bit, bending the knees slightly, and straightening one leg at a time. Lift and straighten your back, then fold all the way down again. Roll your back and arms all the way up and repeat as many times as you like to feel warmed up and stretched. 

Beachbody has lots of cool yoga videos, as well as the Piyo videos which I loved from the first moment I did it. It’s a very strong, cardio yoga – awesome!! I truly do enjoy being with Beachbody 😀 (Keep in mind, the secret that makes Beachbody work, though, is not just the workouts, but Shakeology, what you put into your body. You are what you consume.)

 

Everyone has different fitness journeys. I’m sharing mine. 

No, not all my posts will be like this, I swear 😀 I am still writing my poetry. Our lives reach in so many directions – isn’t it great?!

When you are ready for your fitness journey, I do hope you come find me to be your coach, though ❤ 

I can honestly tell you I am ultra positive, encouraging, and motivating 🙂

😀   😀   😀

 

Namaste with Love,

Fiddling n’ Singing

Standard

 

Hello lovelies!

 

Here I am singing my heart out… when I’m the last person to close at work, and I’ve got the building to myself… ohhhh the Acoustics!!!

Perfection 😀

 

I love singing. I’m not a part of a group at this moment, but I love to do it for myself.

Do you thing singing and music can have healing powers?

❤ 

Namaste with love,

Celestial K.

Journey – Self Love

Standard

Self love IS a journey, and not necessarily an easy one in a physical vessel.

A lot of what is in our environment sticks in our minds, and what we see when we look in the mirror can speak louder than bombs.

I LOVE sugary sweets and always have, but I also LOVE to exercise (as I’ve shared with you, talking about my liking Bellydancing, Yoga, and nature walks). But over the years… I’ve had less time to exercise, and then the negatives in my body just added up. I am not as thin as I would like to be, nor as strong. I do yoga, but not enough. I goal set to one day teach yoga.

So I’m doing something about it! I’m on my fitness journey to improve the health of my body, therefore its’ longevity. My goal is to get fit, and strong enough to one day get certified to teach yoga.

And guess what? I’m also coaching others to do the same with their fitness journey!

Remember my last blogs when I mentioned that when I work at home and work outside of home, it’s just too much, that I’m always working when I am at home? Well, I’ve decided that when our typing contract is up, to make my peace with it and part ways, while still working at my other job. I love transcribing, but it’s just taking up any freedom I could have.

I was not able to achieve “full time” at my job yet, but I was told I would be getting some kind of raise later on, so that makes it better. Dropping transcribing will make space in my life. This space that I need. The space that I also need for simple things like getting exercise.

Beachbody is helping me on my fitness journey, with the ultra healthy Shakeology. While I am making new space in my life, being a Beachbody coach will be my way of making the supplemental income that I’ll need when I leave typing. And yet I won’t feel like I’m constantly on the clock, like I did with transcribing. 

There’s not too many downsides to being a Beachbody Coach, really. But here’s what I see benefiting:

Being a coach:

  1. I am helping others to love themselves more, feel comfortable in their bodies
  2. I am loving myself more and being more comfortable in my body
  3. Whoever I coach, and I, will be getting the nutrients from Shakeology that I know I wasn’t getting before
  4. Our bodies will last longer if we treat it right
  5. Once I’m good enough, I get my yoga certification!

I already strive to help people in different ways, through my poetry, spiritual contemplation blogs, music, and now fitness. I do it all, because I love it all.

Thank you for reading my blogs, friends!

Let me know if you would like me to be your coach on your own fitness journey. Just comment or e-mail me. Or of course, if you’d like to buy a copy of Soul Thoughts. 😀

I Am

Standard

Hello Friends,

I Am - Poem

Does this poem can mean something to you?

 

I often feel like “life” – the way people have designed it, the “system” just chases us away from who we are. It works hard to force me to believe that I don’t have time for important things, like meditating, a walk in nature, a hot bath, soul searching.

Can you relate?

For me, this feeling comes mainly because I work at home, and I work part time for another company. I would like to ask for prayers from you, if you are the praying type, or even to send positive thoughts to me, because I would love to become finally full time for this second theater company. That way, I won’t have to work at home and have this feeling of constantly needing to work, work, work just to pay the bills. (Seriously, the house can’t even get properly cleaned because I need to keep “working.”)

I do not typically ask for prayer, as I work hard with my own mindset of the Law of Attraction. But I would really like to include you in this, because I need all the positive vibes sent my way (as I’m sure we all need). In return, I’ll pray for you, too, and send you positive thoughts.

I appreciate you so much as my blogging friends! This is how I am working to create space in my life, to make time for things like finishing my book, for blogging, for exercising belly dancing, yoga. I strongly believe this will help me. I am ready for a change, so if Spirit desires for even something else to happen in my life, then it will be so. I feel a shift coming, because I’m ready.

You may not be looking for a big shift in your life like I am, and that’s fine. But try to take time to create a little space into your day. To sit with your eyes closed in a bath tub. To walk outside and notice the leaves changing color. To look up at the sky and reflect – who are you? What does your soul need? What does your soul want? And listen. Listen to your intuition. 

Let’s do this thing together 😀

Have a happy day, friends.

Namaste,

Celestial K.

Speculum – a poem

Standard

Here is a lovely poem for you all, my friends. 

Look to the Heavens, see yourself. You are the Universe. The stuff of the stars is inside of us all. We are all one, all connected, all of our atoms, the things we are made of, is all the same, all space, all light.   

This is what I was contemplating.

Lost Serenity – a Poem

Standard

Lost Serenity

It trickles,

Crawling in bubbling inches.

That time of awe I felt

The lost serenity

Resonating nothing and everything,

Grapple me until I fell,

Taken over,

It wrecked what I thought,

Shattered my humanity

And I liked it.

This is a reflection of my meditation experience some time last week. In the bathwater, I listened to one of my meditation apps that I love.

Insight Timer is the best meditation app, because it gives you a bunch of:

1) Free meditations

2) different kinds of meditations (such as guided, chants, unguided, etc.)

3) Full length meditations

 

Balance is one of the things I struggle with, balancing my time and energy to do things my body needs instead of just trying to make money/make ends meet.

Even if I love my jobs, I still want time to bellydance, meditate, do yoga, take a walk outside, play with my kitties, and watch Vampire Diaries. 😀 ❤

Soul Absorption – a poem

Standard

Peace and Love are going out from me today into the hurricane, into the people affected. My uncle & his wife are in FL. My grandma who also lives there is now visiting with my dad in GA. I hope you are all well. Sending you my love as well.

This poem is a love poem, so it’s unrelated to the hurricane or present worries. This is actually in my poetry book, Soul Thoughts. I hope you enjoy it!
