Get ready to Revitalize & Thrive in 2014!
It’s 2014, another NEW year for the NEW you! Are you ready to rock your health, your wealth and your mission?
If you are tired of all your broken resolutions of the past, you may be ready to PLAY in a bigger way. One of the best ways to do this is to commit to a daily ritual that embodies the practice of Self-Care.
Consider your three top intentions or goals for 2014. Be kind to yourself, and listen deeply to your heart and soul. What really matters to you? What are your dreams for a fulfilling and joy-filled 2014?
Take a piece of paper and write down your three intentions, goals or dreams. Next to each of these three aspirations, write three action steps you will take each week to accomplish your core intentions. Choose to start each and every day by reading these, thereby renewing your commitment.
Listed below are what I see as the most essential Self-Care pathways. Now is a wonderful time to practice radical Self-Care. Ensure you not only rock your health, but also your prosperity and your truest desires for 2014.
“Self-Care is a way of life, not an event.” Robyn Benson, DOM
11 Pathways :
1. Be your own best Self-Care advocate and take responsibility for your health.
2. Reconnect to the EARTH – daily outdoor time is essential.
3. Eat consciously; enjoy a healthy organic diet.
4. Engage in a daily spiritual practice such as meditation, prayer, or ritual.
5. Move your body in some way every day. Variety equals fun.
6. Keep a daily Self-Care journal and cherish your journey.
7. Hydrate with quality water, and nourish every cell of your body with self-love and positive thoughts.
8. Activate and cultivate healthy relationships that feed your soul.
9. Nurture your life’s passions and purpose on a daily basis.
10. Practice heart-centered breathing. Breath is life.
11. Be in gratitude, allow your abundance to flow and pay your blessings forward.
Have fun with these pathways. When you find you are off-center, having a tough day, or being challenged with one of your goals, choose one or two of these pathways to get back on track. Deeply honor your process to thrive and soar with success in your own special way.
As a present to you and to help you Revitalize and Thrive in 2014, the Self-Care Revolution would like to gift you with the first full book of the Self-Care Revolution Season One Series entitled “Thoughts and Food as Medicine.” Go to this link .

Self-Care Revolution Season 2, Module 1 “Thoughts and Food As Medicine”
On Tuesday January 7th, our first Self-Care Revolution speaker of the year will be:
Gregg Braden “The Turning Point” – Creating Resilience in a Time of Extremes
There’s a time when every crisis can become transformation; where simply surviving can become joyous thriving. In our lives that time is The Turning Point. In our world that time is now! The Turning Point emerges when a new force—an idea, a discovery, a revelation—turns a course of events away from a tipping point of no return toward a turning point of new possibilities.
* * *
From peak energy and peak debt to failing economies and the realities of climate change, big changes in the world mean big changes in our lives. With the uncertainties of such extremes our lives are changing in ways we’ve never seen, at a degree that we’re not prepared for, and at speeds that we’ve never experienced. Our success in transitioning to the new world depends upon:
• Our willingness to recognize the shift.
• How we learn to adapt to the changes.
Through easy-to understand science and the wisdom traditions of the past, Gregg Braden explores the extremes that are reshaping our lives, the form of resilience that it takes to thrive in our world, and the strategies to get us there.
Click Here to join the Self-Care Revolution where replays of the interviews are available to Free Members for 48 hours, plus you’ll receive instant access to call-in information and bonus materials.
PRACTITIONER SELF-CARE TIPS
In lieu of featuring one practitioner per week, in 2014 we will use this space to give you helpful hints, tips and techniques for your self care regimens.
From Harmony Rose West:
Week 1: Soul-Full Self-Care:
THE WONDER OF A BRAND NEW DAY!
First thing in the morning, walk outside and stand barefoot on the earth (or imagine you are outside). Take a deep breath. Do it again. Breathe in this new day and exhale any worries or problems. Then, bend down and touch the earth. Say a prayer, a word of thanks, admiration and appreciation to the planet you live on:
“Dear Mother, thank you for all the bounty you provide to all of us. Food, water, air, trees…I am so dependent on you. I deeply thank you for all the ways you contribute to my life.”
Stand up and feel your feet planted firmly on her back. Now reach up overhead with both arms open wide, declare your anticipation for this day as you stretch and reach towards the sky:
“Source of all things, Creator, Father Sky you who are called a thousand names yet are truly nameless, I invite in the synchronicities and miracles of this day. “
Exhaling, lower your arms and bring your hands to your heart and feel the marriage of the earth and sky in your heart chakra. Isn’t connecting with Mother Earth and Father Sky at the beginning of your day a sacred act of Soul-Full Self-Care? HarmonyRoseWellness.com
From Kathleen Nagy-The Sound Lady
Here is a link to some meditation music from Kathleen. The words to the meditaiton are taken from Nina Brown’s newest book “S.T.A.R. a NOW State of Being”. I composed the music to the meditation “Be The Love” which opens the book. With the passing of the last 26,000 year cycle, the age of “trying” is no longer. What is left is to simply Be The Love. Enjoy! (www.thesoundlady.com)
