Find your drishti, Focus

public.jpeg

Have you ever felt distracted, rushed or unable to focus?

Do you remember starting one thing and by the end of the day it turned into six projects? All of which are unfinished.

We chalk it up as normal creative flow but is it?

Is it normal to be distracted or is is it a sign of the times?

Our ability to “focus” is a war zone and we have to use tactical steps to get the job done.

I’ve found peace through a simple yet not so simple Yoga practice called finding your Drishti.

It’s the ability to find something to focus on & direct your energy towards. In fact I’ve compiled another 5 STEP list.

Before I get into the “Five Steps To Finding Your Drishti” I have to share with you my Yoga testimony to explain my connection with this practice that I’ve come to know and love. Yes, love.

IT STARTED WITH A CAR ACCIDENT

Back in 2011 an insane driver came head-on into my lane causing a horrific accident. The MRI’s revealed that my spine had the early signs of degenerative disease. I didn’t want any experimental surgery or kidney destroying drugs so I opted for Hot Yoga [Bikram Yoga] and regular supplements. [Learn more.]

THEN ANOTHER ACCIDENT

Yes, you read it correctly. A second accident in January 2019 sent me to the chiropractors. This time a pizza driver ran the red and plowed into us. This second scan had me nervous and the DC sat me down.

THE RESULT

My spine is vibrant and healthy!!! I asked him if he saw anything and he looked at me with an awkward stare, “No why, are you expecting something?” Honestly, I was in awe. My previous diagnosis DIDN’T EXIST IN MY BODY! I was ecstatic and grateful for the life changes that I’ve made.


FIND YOUR DRISHTI

1.PICK ONE GOAL

When I stepped into the Yoga studio the instructor guided us to find our “Drishti” or a place of focus.

This was easier said than done and it took a lot of practice. I had to make a decision to focus on one object and devote my energy towards it.

2. FIX YOUR GAZE

Your eyes are a powerful tool which is why it’s important to focus, gaze and look at what you desire.

I struggled on holding my Asana yet I stuck with it. Believing that
I would improve over time.

In Yoga and life I have to remember to look at what I desire. I guess that’s why I appreciate vision boards.

3. BREATHE

This is such an important part. It connects your head-space with your physical-space.

Listen to your breath as you exhale and it leaves your body. What was once internal became external.

Breathing grounds us and it is the perfect anchor.

4. START SIMPLE

Condition your mind to enjoy the process or journey. Hopefully the small win’s will be filed under an emotional folder called things-we-enjoy.

Your Drishti unlocks the door to unlimited possibilities. The cycle is: focus, breathe, win & celebrate.

5. PRACTICE OFTEN - There are so many benefits to focusing your energy. The biggest benefit is having a TO-DO list that’s DONE and moving onto the next project.

Having a guide was a game-changer for me. I’m 100% positive that it made all the difference.

Find your Drishti and if you can’t, find a guide who will remind you of it.

Finding your Drishti elevates the soul, trains the mind and strengthens the body.

BENEFITS OF A GUIDE

If it wasn’t for my Yoga instructor I would have failed. Hearing her voice prompting us to, “Stay focused” and “Find your Drishti” made all the difference. After some time I was able to do it alone and enjoy the process.

HOW YOU CAN BENEFIT

The purpose of a guide isn’t to control but rather to direct. To help one find their focus or re-focus. Then it dawned on me, my program is THAT guide! I help Women focus on what’s important to them through an eight module online class and a livestream mastermind. I call this creation, “Walk Inn Beauty Mastermind” which consist of an online E-Course and three Livestream sessions. The E-Course is called “The Opening Ceremony” because it lays down the foundation to the mastermind. Think of it as a prerequisite to the “Walk Inn Beauty Mastermind.”

THE OPENING CEREMONY

EIGHT [8] MODULE, SELF STUDY SESSIONS

  1. WHO AM I

  2. FIVE [5] REALMS OF BEAUTY

  3. CLARITY = CERTAINTY

  6. BOWL OF LIGHT “CEREMONY”

Detox Your Soul

IMG_5391.JPG

Our souls, [deep breath] a wonderful connection to infinite & beyond our comprehension. It often goes unnoticed because it doesn't fit the usual standards.

It isn't like the mind, capable of expressing itself. Neither is it like the body where it has a physical presences. 

What is the soul?

The difficult part, about understanding the Soul is that there isn't a way to measure it's progress or problems. We often can't tell if the soul is starving or maybe we don't know how to feed it?

In my eBook, "Walk in beauty" I wrote about the Soul and how to maintain it. To be honest that was the hardest chapter for me because its intangible. Learn more here.

The SOUL is a bridge, to place we don’t understand, but one that connects us all.
— Ho'omalamalama

Two things I would like to share before moving on. First this post is based off of my experiences. Secondly you are in control. You have the power to choose or to give your power of choice away. And to the courageous soul I say, "read on."

If nothing in this blog resonates with you I hope this will... 

YOU ARE POWERFUL

Only you can remove, change or erase the toxicity in your life. Keep in mind that healthy routines offer a type of balance that you'll find helpful. Especially during stressful moments. Always make time for self-care, self-love and above all self-respect.

If you've read this and want to learn more about the soul check out walk in beauty. It covers the 5 Realms Of Beauty and the soul is one of them.

FIT FOODIE

In February I'm launching my MANA WAHINE Program, Hawaiian for strong woman. It's a type of strength connected to knowing who your are and valuing yourself. I combine holistic lifestyle + HITT + cardio + fit-foodie coaching. Eventually I will be offering the fit-foodie portion as an online program. The goal is to create thought patterns and lifestyles that are healthy not fad-ish. A community of MANA Wahine. 

Here's a simple drink that I shared on my Instagram feed. You can add a touch of stevia to this morning smoothie. As far as measurements go, I don't really measure any of it. I generally taste as I go.

If you haven't followed me on Instagram than you're missing out. There's food, nature and quotes to live by. It's positive inspiration that you can look forward to seeing. Much like the image below. It's part of my Words Of Beauty series.
