Dancer Pose

Standard

Hi my dear friends, 

How are you? I know haven’t been on here enough. Of course my work is busy this month, but pretty busy the next 2 months as well. 

I got to visit my friend Melissa last weekend and do a Halloween house type thing … except … it was in the rain 😂 But still enjoyable ! We always have fun together. 

Annnndddd then back home to coziness and wine 😂

And also this weekend we are going out of town too! Brian and I are going to … Florida … again! For my friend Jennyfer’s birthday celebration 😊 

Exciting. 


When I have time, I’ve been developing my Beachbody online coach business, which means developing myself. 


Annnnd doing random yoga poses 😂

It does take time, practice, dedication, but I am doing better than I have been. My main methods are my Shakeology and exercising to the Beachbody workout videos. I am feeling stronger and lighter already. 
Work on yourself, think of the goals for your highest good, aligning with God’s will, and all will fall into place. What does your soul want? What would advance your spirit? What are you being moved to do now? It does change.

Listen. 
Until next time,

Namaste with love,

Celestial K.

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,

Celestial K.

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!!!

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. 😀 ❤

Piccolo Fairy Tunes

Standard

Some Fairy Music of mine for you…

I was encouraged by a new friend to take out my piccolo *dusts off* and play some tunes! I love improvising, of course.

Here’s a very short clip of me playing today!

I had longer clips, but they weren’t too great, as I’m still getting used to playing again. It’s hard when your embouchure muscles aren’t used to playing anymore. Maybe I’ll post some other videos later and they’ll be even better.

But here’s some little Fairy music for you to enjoy.

Feel inspired!

Simple Moments are Life

Standard

Can Simple Moments be what our life is made for? 

Breathe in.

Does our soul actually crave the Simple Moments in life?

We are trained so hard in our society to exist, in many ways, contrary to our natural state. 

Think about that statement for a minute.

  • We are trained to go-go-go instead of sit in the Moment in Peace.
  • We are trained to think Money is the Master.
  • We are not trained to appreciate Art in terms of hierarchy of money and class.
  • We are trained to think we’re no good if we aren’t accomplishing something.

This list can go on for a very long time.

When I speak of society, I speak mainly of my experience growing up in the Southern US. But I am willing to bet we are not the only ones brought up in these manners of deciding what is important.

What if our nature IS PEACE? LIGHT? ARTISTIC? RESTFUL? Just a few examples.

october 216.JPG

Savannah River in Augusta, GA – my hometown. I really miss it being landlocked like I am now.

Why would we be trained to go AGAINST our nature? We can question why those in control of our society would want us to be against our true nature. If we’re peaceful, we won’t create wars. Those in control like chaos. If we humans believe money shows the value of our worth, then stuff becomes important, high paying but perhaps meaningless jobs becomes important to attain and… we become blinded. Blinded to what’s important (spirit) and blinded to what “they” (those in control) don’t want us to see. Perhaps that we are all light, spirit, and so powerful that we are limitless? They don’t want us to know that.

Honestly, I wasn’t going to get into all the political conspiracies out there of what is really going on in our society and who is in control. I’m a New-Age believer, so a few googles of the Illuminate or David Icke or the like can let you on to those paths of inner-thinkings. It’s not for me to tell you exactly what to believe, but to question – why is it like this, and how can I change it?

You can change yourself (with effort, dedication, work, and being easy on yourself). 

Now what this blog post was SUPPOSED to delve into first was – Simple Moments. (Did I get side tracked?)

The fact that those simple moments between your go-go-go life where you aren’t thinking about work, or what you’re going to do next, or what you’re going to eat next or blah blah blah… you’re saying to yourself, “Wow, the sky looks beautiful today, actually.” Or, you aren’t thinking anything, just enjoying a few moments of cuddling with your loved one.

That last one is me, a lot. I am an extremely goal-oriented person. I want to succeed. I want to be good at my job and my goals. (I’m not always good at them but gosh I try.) I have to do this and that – making lists in my head as I go so I don’t forget what needs to be done. Go-go-go.

I don’t break away from that easily.

Except on vacations. Or small moments, the ones I’m talking about, when I perhaps cuddle with my husband. My mind will tell me that I don’t have time for that. That I have to go do this, do that. Type. Prepare to go to work. Whatever the case may be. But sometimes I just tell that part of my mind to shut the hell up and let me cuddle and enjoy the moment.

It’s hard to listen to your own advice sometimes, and for me, learning to enjoy these simple moments is truly a working progress. I have to really work at letting myself enjoy some simple things, like really enjoy that sip of coffee instead of always doing something else running around while I’m drinking that coffee. It’s small reminders – oh yes, take a sip, taste that? Isn’t it good? Isn’t this what you’re here to experience?

Life. (Life is coffee?!)

We go-go-go, because we’re trained to be that way, it’s ingrained in us, we think we must be accomplishing something or we’re worthless. However, what if we cultivated a different way of thinking? (I’m not saying I support the lazing-on-the-couch-while-your-parents-pay-the-rent generation that some have fallen into. That’s another discussion completely.) If you enjoy this moment in time, whether you are accomplishing something or not, maybe it is an important moment. 

I’m just saying, soul-level, you are worth so much. God/Spirit/Creator will not be disappointed in you, whether you accomplish your goals or not, but in how gentle your spirit is, and how hard you try to be a good person.

Why are we in the flesh? That’s a good question with multiple broad answers. But I bet one of them is to experience simple, enjoyable activities, such as celebrating Christmas with family, and birthdays with friends, and the feel of the water against your toes, and the smell of flowers that fairies have surely grown.

My friend and me in 2011, those years ago when we lived near each other, enjoying a simple moment 😀 And having lots of fun!

This post is getting long. I really need to write a book.

I have much to say, but I’ll let you contemplate the thoughts I have shared, all my own opinions. Do you have any insight/ input? Think I’m wrong? Isn’t it super hard to enjoy those simple moments? Do you struggle with it or find it easy? Could you incorporate it into your daily practice?

I’ll stop spouting out questions to you. 😀

Namaste with Love,

I live for…

Standard

heartlive

Sometimes I have to think… what keeps me going? Why am I working so hard? All for what? It can’t be money. More like, memories to make with spending the money. It can’t be just for survival. It has to be about relationships with the beautiful people who have touched my life.

I live for those moments that I can spend with my husband. He is my love, he is my life, and after life. Our jobs do a good job at separating us sometimes, but we got to spend some time together these past few days, and the memories are something to keep in my heart! ❤

I live for the chance to breathe in nature. Not when it’s freezing outside, like today. But I’m living for the expectation that spring is around the corner. Living in the southern state of GA in the US, I am absolutely grateful that spring and summers and fall are usually quite warm seasons! (And in this years’ case, winter too…but today is freezing.)

I live for the chance to continue to travel the world! I love to travel – I’ve been to many places in the US, including California, and New York City, Hawaii, Alaska, and Florida… but there’s still more to see! I’ve been to several places outside of the US, too, like Mexico, Canada, Jamaica, Honduras, England (my favorite!), Germany, Russia, Sweden, Denmark and more. Many of these places I’ve only experienced briefly on a cruise. So I’d love to spend more time in Europe in my life! I have a love for England and Ireland, and I took French, so I really want to visit France. My family has Russian and German roots, so I went to spend more time in these places, too. Also, I love to travel to the beach! I live hours away from one, now, unfortunately. But maybe one day I’ll move closer to one again–or even the mountains! Who knows where the future will take us for vacations or  beyond?!

I live for the time I’ll find my kitty soul mate again. I had my Darlen, my Siamese, my precious cat who was with me most of my life and the companion exactly matching my soul, and one whom I could trust dearly. She passed on before Brian & I moved to our beautiful home and got married. I always told her when she passes on, her soul needs to find me again in reincarnation. After her passing, I realized that maybe she’s happier being body-less? She had a lot of problems and surgeries in her time with me. She lived to be 14. So maybe it’s a selfish thing to want her back. So maybe another animal soul mate will come to me? I truly miss the companionship. We have Brian’s cat Eesha who likes me enough, but the connection isn’t nearly as strong. She scratched me deeply once, and I still have a scar. (I didn’t talk to her for like a month.)  Brian and I hope in the future to get two cats who love each other, (kind of mirroring his parent’s twin gold-point Siamese cats Rowan and Merlin), and we each get to name one cat. We’ve already picked out the names of our cats 😀 We’re waiting for more financial freedom available before we get these dream-kitties though.

I live for friends and family, present and future. I say this because I’ve always believed friends (and love) is the meaning of life. Those deep friendships. Many of my friends who I’ve been connected to for many years live two hours away. One won’t even visit my house because she has bad asthma and can’t stand a cat. My friends are fantastic, but are not with me often. That makes me sad. But I do live for them, and also for the possibility of new friends in the future. I also live for my family in the respect of Brian is my love and we will one day most likely have children. We want children, just still not ready for them yet. Enjoying just being a couple. I’m not getting into the rest of the family to mention how grateful or not I am of them. Each person has a different story. In my mind, my story with Brain is the most important. ❤ (Ain’t I a ROMANTIC?! Lol I am, and luckily so is he.)

I live so that I can keep writing and get my novel published! Been working on this novel since I was 13 years old. It’s bound to be completely finished and published in some magical way soon… 😉 Hey, at least I got a poetry book out! Celestialk.weebly.com 😀 Self-published. Yeah, I don’t want to go the self-publishing route again, but we’ll see what the future holds.

I realize when I step back, I have a lot to live for, many memories to reminisce on when I feel like it, and so much to look forward to.

What are some things you are living for? What keeps you going? 

Namaste,

~Celestial K.
