Spring is a time of new beginnings. And with that, comes the desire for cleansing, detoxification and/or weight loss. Now is the ideal time to start thinking about this since it is a transitional time of the year as well as a spiritual time for new beginnings and cleansing out the old to make room for the new. This not only applies to our bodies and the toxins that have built up in our tissues and organs throughout the year, but also to our mental, emotional and spiritual bodies where we store memories, emotions and every experience we have ever had. It is important to take stock and look at how the relationships in our lives either serve us healthfully or contribute to toxicity in our lives. Everything in existence is about relationship. So whether it is the relationship between the cells in our bodies or the relationship with our significant other, kids, friends, business colleagues, or our relationship with the Divine, we need to look at how these relationships either serve to keep us healthy or serve to make us sick.
We all know how being in the wrong relationship can either make us feel wonderful or dreadful. Everything we think, say, and do, has an effect. This is how Karma works - it all counts - not just when we are meditating, praying or doing our affirmations, but all the time, 24/7/365. Every thought, word and deed is essentially a prayer, in every moment of every day. When we take the necessary actions to take care of ourselves, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, the universe responds and supports these intentions to assist us to make the most nourishing choices – from the food we ingest, the thoughts we choose to think, the relationships we allow to nourish us, to how we express our connection to the Divine. This is the time to think about that which is serving us to make us vital, strong, and healthy, or that which is contributing to stress, digestive disturbance and weight gain, fatigue, or illness. Set a san kalpa, an intention, a Positive Transformation, to detoxify your body, mind and spirit this spring so that you may live a life of strength, vitality and health as you minimize the toxicity in your life. At Kalyana Centre, we will support you in this process by providing a vast array of services such as Ayurveda, Naturopathy, Spiritual Counseling, Meditation, Massage, Yoga, Reiki, and more, so that you may live a life of health, vitality and love.
