    I had a very similar thing happen to me as well. I had my heart and mind set on a specific place to live and when it didn’t come through I was pretty devastated.

    I am so with you! Saturday morning found me throwing my back out. I’ve been practically motionless since them and have quickly realized how much I have to be grateful for — my family that has picked up all the slack for mom, my health — never knew how much I used my back until it was out of commission, and how loving, caring, and awesome my network of friends is.

    Great article, Jenny, and brilliant breakthrough! I had the thought recently “what if I just don’t believe anymore that I have food issues/emotional eating/food addiction?” In other words, who would I be without my story?

    So I’ve been living as if I’m NOT that person, and instead being someone who is healthy and free from food issues. It takes some practice (lol) but it’s amazing how different I’m feeling and how much more loving with myself I am.

    Thanks for sharing your story – it helps me to know you’re on a similar journey (health & self-love vs focusing on weight). Your openness is inspiring.

    I’ve been reading Kate’s Daily Tarot Girl blog for about six months. I love her positive, insightful, PRACTICAL take on the cards. I’ve also had some wonderful readings from her.

    My favorite notion from this particular article is that it’s more satisfying to learn to read for yourself than it is to always be getting professional readers to tune in to you. However, even though I do read for myself quite happily, the occasional reading from Kate rounds out my tarot life beautifully!

  • Reply Leanne Chesser July 12, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    I totally agree with your definition and description of self love. I’ve believed that for years. I’ve always said that we need to love ourselves first in order to be able to truly, wholly and healthily love others. When we love ourselves, it ripples up within us and then out to others and the entire planet. Each of our own circles touches others’ circles until the whole planet is bathed in love. That’s what I envision. Self love looks like many things. One thing is loving self talk – – we tend to be nastier to ourselves in our minds than we’d ever be to anyone else. It’s also expressing gratitude for myself! That’s not done very often, I don’t think.Β

    Great post, Jenny! Β It’s a daily practice to shift my perspective from “it’s difficult to be in business for myself but it’s worth it;” to something like… “being in business for myself brings me freedom and joy and the knowledge that I can totally do this!”
    One of my favorite perspective-shifting opportunities is looking down from a great height – like an airplane or a mountain/hilltop. Β I do love the simplicity of a handstand in shifting perspective… though, perhaps I’ll start with head & arms over the side of the bed. Β (Less scary.) Β πŸ™‚

    • Reply Jenny R July 15, 2013 at 4:59 pm

      Thank you so much!! I would recommend doing a handstand in front of your bed. That way you gain strength while being able to fall into bed if you need it…or against a wall πŸ™‚

    For the last 7 years, I’ve lived in a small (but beautiful) village in the Hudson Valley. We just signed on the dotted line to move OUT of our little village, mostly because it’s gotten really expensive but also because it has become so insular. We were really freaked out (like you become when you do your first handstand), but after the deed was done, the sense of my perspective switching was a relief! It’s amazing how cocooned we can become without realizing it. Β Thanks for the amazing post.

    • Reply Jenny R July 16, 2013 at 7:26 am

      It’s amazing what we can do and believe when things shift and when we listen to our own intuition. I jokingly refer too Ana Forrest’s “fearasanas” which means fear pose whenever I think of obstacles. We simply need to leap and believe that we will be caught. Shifting out perspective to include love and change makes everything so much more open!! Wishing you tons it love & light on your next journey out of the little village.Β

  • Reply Nathalie July 16, 2013 at 7:27 am

    What an inspiring post, Jenny! I find the idea of actually trying a handstand a little scary, but “reputations and first impressions can only be changed when you flip YOUR perspective” is sooo true! You know what – I’ll go jump on my kids’ trampoline next time I feel like I need a shift in perspective. Hope that counts, too :-)!

    • Reply Jenny R July 16, 2013 at 7:31 am

      Of course it counts Nathalie!! πŸ™‚ It changes your comfort zone, makes you feel like you can fly and usually makes you laugh!! πŸ™‚ try a handstand on the trampoline and see how hard you laugh. Hehe. And thank you…I truly believe that. We are not a victim to our circumstances if we can stay present and choose to flip our own view point and perspective.

      Have a great day and have an extra jump on that trampoline for me!!

  • Reply Vivian Mandala July 23, 2013 at 7:58 am

    Hi Jenny, I have a great deal of experience with non-profits. From creating my own and dissolving it (I wasn’t able to balance the frustration with the love), to now volunteering.
    It takes a special person to birth a non-profit. You have to be able to take people as they come and be grateful for the small part they can play. I couldn’t. I got all wound up and ended up feeling resentful for the work that people WEREN”T doing, that I ended up angry and bitter. NOT pretty.
    Seth Godin said in Tribes, that sometimes leaders don’t need to lead, sometimes they become followers. So I dissolved my little non-profit and started my own company. I’m a much better follower in non-profits. I help with marketing, newsletters, day of help, spreading the word and internal business practices. I help a lot of non-profits.Β 

    I’m so grateful to you and to people of your mold that can juggle the stresses of running a non-profit and come out shining. It takes a special person. You are that special person. πŸ™‚

    Hi Jenny! I totally get that you are frustrated and angry sometimes and I really admire the love and energy you put into your voluntary work. Don’t let this be poisened by people who don’t feel the same passion (yet) as you do. They will get there, too, eventually. And if not – then it just wasn’t meant for them. Whenever you are disappointed by someone – think of all the great people who make your days and your anger will dissolve.

    Always a great reminder to spend time on gratitude, and hearing all that you’re grateful for is always inspiring. Thanks for the great post…..And as far as gratitude, I do a daily gratitude to my body. Just all the things we can so easily take for granted. I teach as well, and so often see people get frustrated that they cant do a pose….But really if we pause a moment and thank our body for all the daily acts of living that we take for granted I find this helps transform how we relate to our body πŸ™‚

    • Reply Jenny R July 24, 2013 at 1:43 pm

      That’s so wonderful!!! I took a moment this morning with my students to remind them of how far we’ve gone by placing both legs on the earth (we’d stretched the right side) and evaluating the difference. Reminding them of how much we’ve already accomplished before we look to where we are going. We SO often take for granted the transformations happening within us. So great to hear you’re on the same path!!! πŸ™‚

    What a beautiful reflection of gratitude Jenny! I write out a gratitude list every night, and I am certain that it is one of the top tools I’ve used to keep me vibing high no matter what the circumstances! P.S. Huge congrats on your contract – what wonderful news!

    Fun post, Jenny. I love all the pictures! All are definitely great life lessons.

    One that I’ve gleaned over the years: listen to yourself. There will be times when you don’t want to hear what that little voice has to say, but if you don’t, it will get louder and louder and louder. It’s there specifically to guide you to where you need to be. Best to take the time to discover what it’s trying to tell you as early on as possible.

    • Reply Jenny R July 25, 2013 at 5:24 pm

      Thanks for sharing Andrea! I agree, listening to yourself and your intuition is so important and something we often forget to do. Thanks for the reminder!!

    One more lesson that I have learned while DJingΒ 
    is don’t let the negative get you down. Β When I
    first started DJing, 800 people would beΒ 
    dancing, telling me I was great, loving the music. Β

  • Reply Sabrina at MyMiBoSo July 30, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    YES! This is a practice I came across awhile back – believe it was in a Buddhist principles book – and I too was blown away by this concept of breathing in those negative thoughts but then releasing out the positive back into the world! Love also the big AHA you had about your relationship with God and the divine within – sounds like your student truly was the teacher!

  • Reply Jenny R July 30, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    Isn’t the student always a teacher?! ;-)Thanks for driving it home. I didn’t realize it was a Buddhist concept, but love that idea. We always inhale the positive but I think it’s great to also exhale the positive sometimes!! πŸ™‚Β 

  • Reply Angie Andriot July 31, 2013 at 8:48 am

    I love how you flip the script on that! The focus becomes on what we put out into the world, rather than what we take into ourselves. If the air is contaminated, we can either wear a gas mask or work to improve the air around is. The first is more of a band-aid than a long-term fix. By exhaling positivity, we are cleaning the air around us πŸ™‚ Β 

    • Reply Jenny R July 31, 2013 at 9:55 am

    I’m so glad to hear your realization at the end – – that loving yourself is a constant conversation. I hear you though. I’ve been there myself. I’ve worked so long on things, only to find more that I’m dealing with . . . with the thoughts of being a failure and the frustration of working on this AGAIN?!? But . . . it’s a journey. And we go deeper and heal things more fully as we go. Also, we don’t need to be perfect to teach others. We need to be real.Β 

  • Reply Jenny R August 5, 2013 at 10:15 am

    Exactly! Sometimes it takes a long time to even begin the conversation but if we are constantly having this conversation, we are on the road and continuing on our journey. If we slip… as long as we have the conversation with ourselves, or support from others we are begin REAL. I’m so lucky to have students who are grateful for a real teacher and am loving the journey I am on even if it is a challenge at times. πŸ™‚

Sometimes I worry we’re TOO close and will burn out, but it feels good to hear that you’re still just as madly in love and best friends after so much time. And I love what you said about having friends to maintain that balance.

    My most recent adventure was with my boyfriend – we took a road trip across the desert to Arizona to visit my father, with whom I’m just building a relationship (thanks to my boyfriend!) It was magical.

    Thanks for posting this! <3

    You’re so welcome Sara! I’m happy to hear your boyfriend is helping you rebuild a relationship with your father–that is such a special place to be right now, even if it is trying at times. And a road trip is so much fun!!Β 

    It’s true. We are very best friends and I love him more everyday. It is about balance though. Sometimes we are too close to our tightly knit families and know we need time with friends or we spent too much time together and I need yoga or he needs video games (alone time).Sometimes it’s just that I need girl time with a glass of wine or we need a fun date as a group of friends sitting around a bonfire on the beach. Friends help us to balance any relationship and it’s so healthy to have friends in all different walks of life. My grandmother taught me to be connected throughout a lifetime with people. She still gets together will friends or write log hand written letters or emails to friends in other states when they cannot connect in person for months. It’s something I’ve held onto and I try to maintain all my friendships as best I’m able. πŸ™‚

    I’d love to know why/how you chose those words, what they mean to you. What other insights and/or revelations did you get from her book?

    • Reply Jenny R October 3, 2013 at 5:22 pm

      Hi Nancy!! What great questions. It was a truly wonderful “book” and the workbook helps guide you to your words. She starts with the desire map book. I chose to listen to the audio on a few car rides and her voice is magical. She talks about why we need desire words as opposed to setting goals because we should set an intent to feel a particular way instead of hitting particular goals. She then helps guide you through her workbook to find YOuR words.

      Throughout the book, I felt free. I really connected with her and her words. I am felt empowered. Sarah Jenks said today in an Instagram post that she used to love to break food rules (eating ice cream when on weight watchers etc) and the moment she released the rules, she felt free & began to lose weight. It’s how I feel about the desire map. I let go of my goals and set intentions. I still have things I want to do and to-do lists & goals–but I feel they are more intentions now that I have particular words I’m connected to. Words I want to feel as often as I’m able: I WANT to feel ALIVE & embody being boho chic. It’s connected to all the goals I now set.

      Throughout the book she also included playlists, audio & other goodies and treats. When I say I would’ve paid more, I’m not kidding. I would have paid triple her asking price. It felt Part of a revolution & the beginning of something so beautiful. I’m so glad I have this book!!

      I hope that answers your question πŸ™‚ please let me know if you have more!! Xxo

    Fabulous stuff! I’m totally guilty of getting sidetracked and cleaning the house on days that I set aside to work. I would say that right now I’m rocking the education piece. I’m on track to finish my degree in Human Development by next spring. This is big for me because I returned to school last year after years as a single, working mommy and I’m finishing up sooner than I expected. I’m also scheduled to take life coach training and I can’t wait to blend my traditional and nontraditional education into the my own unique gift of service to the world.

    #3 for me! I speak so much about taking an artist date with my clients – though it’s rare I honor one for myself!

    I did just that on Saturday and found myself in downtown Los Angeles in an art gallery, exploring my totem animal (the Raven!), and then happening upon the most magical courtyard cafe where I sipped genmaicha and wrote for hours!

    So rejuvenating and exactly what I needed to live my truth in that moment!

    • Reply Jenny R October 15, 2013 at 5:00 pm

      It’s so important! Even as we build our own businesses (or sit in an office) we need to rejuvenate our soul. I did this today: I needed a break and had a green smoothie and a nice walk around the block. So happy to hear you took yourself on an artist date!!

    I love the honesty on your blog. I recently went through a major life trauma and my body didn’t quite react the way I thought it would. I was gaining weight due to stress. I woke up one day and realized that most of my worry came from worrying about how I would be perceived as a health coach gaining weight. The truth was I needed to take time to get better on the inside. So I silence all the judgmental voices and focussed on how I wanted to feel: beautiful, fit & strong.

    Great words of wisdom.

      Thank you so much Webly! I feel the only way I can be of service to others is by being truly myself and having the wherewithal to be honest in my journey as well. I’m not perfect, no one is. And part of being a teacher is allowing others to see you for YOU and to help them understand that even as people in the health industry, that we are real and so much more than the magazines.

    Hey Jenny,
    This is a great interview. This is really interesting I would be curious to see what my painting would look like. My only question is that is it ever difficult to read someone?

    • Reply Jenny R December 5, 2013 at 7:38 am

      Spirit knows all- the main difficulty would be in connecting to Spirit. If you were the one receiving the painting, imagine two highways – one between me and you, and another between me and Spirit/The Source. There is also that connection between you and The Source as well which, after you request your painting, I am able to tap into with greater detail. The painting reflects your state of awareness Now, what mix of images can best trigger you into being wholly you now and that will keep doing so in the future. This is what I request when I connect with The Source. Difficulties can arise if you are not meant to know certain answers right now and have expectations. Also, it can be difficult to read if I am not in a space to receive and so I align myself with nature before each painting. In fact, most times I paint these in nature so there is an added richness in the messages that go into the painting. ~ Sasha

I also teach yoga, am a teacher, have a furry baby and other children! I was intrigued by the reference of Dancers Pose being a push and pull move like our lives, a give and take to achieve the balance we are looking for. I teach class in the morning and was browsing for more inspiration of this push/pull idea. I like your take her…it was refreshing. Namaste!

    Wow — I stumbled upon your blog today and then read about your tattoo which led me to this post! A few months ago, I also wanted to get a tattoo that resonated with me deeply… something I firmly believed in and wanted a reminder of on my body. I came across the mantra of “Hari Om” which I feel strongly relates to the idea of Ishvara Pranidhana (I was actually thinking about getting that as an alternative as I was more confident in its translation, but decided to stick with my intuition)! For me, Hari Om means the idea of Surrendering to the higher power (whether that is The Universe/The Divine/God, etc) and trusting that things will work out the way they should. I know have it tattooed in a small, neat, sanskrit-looking font on my right ribs.

    Have you ever been introduced to the mantra Hari Om? What is your translation of it? I’m always interested in hearing how other people describe it and it isn’t prominent on the internet (from what I’ve seen on Google anyway)!

    Thank you for your blog — I really enjoyed being introduced to it today!

      Hi Laura!

      Thank you so much for your comment and interest in the blog. πŸ™‚

      My definition of Hari Om is a protection from God. The act that we can see or feel Vishnu, the Hindu God and that you are protected. It is in a sense similar to Isvara Pranidhana. I love that youve gotten it tattooed. Hopefully with more poking around on the blog, I’ll answer additional questions you may have!! I also recently wrote a mantras article for Boho Daily by Tiny Devotions if you’re interested in learning more mantras.

Today I was looking at my facebook feed and I saw that someone shared a post about Mother Teresa, Forgive anyway, Be kind anyway, Be happy anyway, Do good anyway, Give your best anyway, In the end, it is between you and God It was never between you and them.
    Thank you Jenny for spreading this positive energy into the world.

    Thank you for writing this. <3 For completely different reasons, I also found myself somewhere I never imagined I'd be… divorced, and I was the one that wanted it. It's so hard to explain to others how hard the choice is, and the huge transition. This warmed my heart. Thank you Jenny!

    It’s amazing what we tell ourselves, what we can convince ourselves is the truth. What we are supposed to do…So glad you have found this next space in the journey that is recovery.

    Much love,

    Hi Jenny,
    I would love to take this training. I know what it’s like as a parent to watch your child fight this disease and the struggles that parents face everyday. I knew in my heart i wanted to do something to help and to use yoga as a tool. I didn’t know how and felt lost. ..so i prayed for guidance for direction and patiently waited for them to be answered. Apparently i wasn’t ready till now. When the student is ready the teacher appears. So I’m reaching out as I found you through my dear friend Suzanne Borgioli. I would like to know more about the training and when you will be offering it again. Thank you for creating this training.
    Love and light
