I Never Imagined I Would Write a Cookbook

Back in January of 2015, I experienced one of the most profound meditations of my life. During this experience, a series of events occurred through me. With a feeling so raw and real, I have been quietly creating a piece of me: The Consciously Living Cookbook.

Some Background

While my sister and I were in Bali early last year, I met a man. He was explaining to me how there is no need to keep this new-found knowledge and motivation tucked away in my journal until it was fully ready. He inspired me to keep listening to my inner voice when moments like this occur. He also reminded me that I should talk about it and with talking, a flow of energy will come.

An energy of community.

In the past few months, I have started to talk about it out loud. I’m ready…and, I feel the community. I feel union.

The Cookbook

So here I am, telling the universe through this online network. I am in the process of creating a book (an e-book version will be available too). This book uncovers all that I teach individuals, the way I live, and my psychology of eating.

It includes consciously living principles and practices, meditations/asana, how I can suggest to live more authentically, recipes that nourish the body, tools to use when moving through blockages, an 8 week program, and a community page to connect like-minded people.

It’s not just a cookbook; it’s truly a life book.

The Blog

I sat at my computer every day writing; it wouldn’t stop coming through me. There was no intention of anyone reading the blog post, but I figured I would allow my journey to be potentially stumbled upon. This blog is a space where I write without linearity. It is a place where I let out all the mish-mash. This to me is art and chatter that is released through my fasting journeys. A form of Morning Pages (a post about this coming soon).

I feel the urge to speak about the journey and talk about the blockages.

Maybe it is time to start filming.
