Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin. Cupping has been characterized as a pseudoscience. There is no solid evidence that it has any health benefits, and there are severe concerns it may be harmful to the epidermal, circulation and nervous system.
Today I had my first cupping experience at Well Kneaded Massage Therapy & Skin Care located in Fort Myers, Florida. One of the members at MAX'D Out Fitness Center whom also worked part time at the fitness center with me. Katie is a massage therapist and a cupping therapist. I heard of cupping, done my research, and had seen photos. I knew I would have marks. I was a bit nervous and excited to experience cupping. Last year I tried acupuncture. As a Mind-Body Wellness Practitioner, I love alternative methods such as massage, cupping, acupuncture, reiki, crystals, and sound healing for my well-being.
Katie did really well at making feel comfortable. Since I had done my research I felt confident. It honestly did not hurt. It felt like a gentle pinch. She placed them along my spine. She ran them down my spine. It felt a little tighter when she did my legs. I could bare it though. Overall, it was a really nice experience. With so many benefits like deeper relaxation, reduce pain, loosen muscles, increase energy flow. I will be scheduling another session next month. Besides the round circles on my back which will fade away. They may look bad, there is a slight of discomfort, but nothing that would keep me from doing this again.
Because you should always pamper yourself once in a while. Today was one of those days. Enjoying a much needed Pedi.
Today's reminder is to make it a point to treat yourself like a boss. Pamper yourself because you are worth it.
Mindful. Love. Each day I make it a point to live mindful. I also make it a point to live in the vibration of love. I am here for a purpose and that is to assist others in aligning with heart so that it inspires their ascension. I believe this is all lightworkers purpose and mission. This week I was faced with a truth. I now know why there are so many "yoga" studios. It's because everyone wants to do their "own" thing. Teach their own style of yoga. Kinda like churches. I recently sent some messages to introduce myself and the inquire if they (yoga studios) would have an opening for a Kundalini Yoga class. I was immediately rejected on one of the messages. The other one never replied. I respect their decision but it made me think about BKS Yoga Studio in Naples, Florida. I have been attending BKS for about a year or so taking their Kundalini Yoga classes and Kundalini Workshops. I truly appreciate Jill for offering a variety of classes in her studio. I mindfully share these with love. I was sadden but allow it to go. My goal is to open my own studio/wellness center. I definitely will offer a variety of classes.
As I finished my meditations tonight, I was guided to share my experience because I know Kundalini Yoga is for those whom are ready to tab into their oneness. I can honestly say my super power is Kundalini Yoga. I have been practicing Kundalini Yoga since 2015 and totally can see the shift it has had in my consciousness. My message to you is to follow your heart. Follow your dreams even if you are faced with resistance and challenges. Mindfully listen to that heart center of love. Never give up and never let anyone dim your sparkle.
Today I drove up to Plantation, Florida to meet up with my two fellow classmates. The plan was Kundalini Yoga at Yoga Source at 10:30 AM (the class was great with the gong for relaxation) and lunch afterwards. Excited because today I would receive in my hand my Kundalini Yoga Teacher Certificate. The journey to become a Kundalini Yoga Teacher begun with a major trigger shift. I was suppose have begun in March of 2017 but they pushed it to May 5, 2017. That week there were events that transpired which truly would be a major trigger shift awakening for transformation. This could have also gone two ways. One I could have backed away from my training or "Keep Up" - I kept up and today I officially have my certificate. There has been so much growth and ascending. A lot of surrendering to allowing. On our last weekend together, I received a message from Yoga Bhajan - Allow it to come to you. I can truly say I have been allowing this to flow and see the wonders happening before my eyes. There have been so many lessons from May until March and I am happy that I can say I did this for me. I did this to share this yoga of awareness with others. I am so very grateful for everyone that supported me during this journey. I truly am thankful.
As I look at the date that my trainer signed this certificate on July 11, 2018 - this date is very significant to me because on July 11, 2013 (5 years earlier) I was in a car accident and I know this were shifting for me and my awareness. It was a year earlier that Kundalini Yoga was brought to my awareness. And it was in 2015 (3 years later) I found my teacher and began practicing the yoga of awareness. As I look at my framed certificate all the wonderful memories that were created with my fellow classmates, my 3 amazing trainers. All the laughter and joy we shared. All the energetic shifts that I experience some which were good and some that cleared out before coming with some type of pain.
Don't go and get it. BE - And allow it to come to you.
Just us gals enjoying lunch after our Kundalini Yoga class. We caught up and make it a monthly date to get together to support each other with our goals and dreams. I also received divine signs today. As I arrived to Yoga Source there was a beautiful butterfly on a beautiful tree. And these angel numbers as well. Very grateful for everything my Spiritual Angelic Team is doing for my highest and best good.
Sending you light and love.
