The Power of Connecting

The Power of Connecting

I watched an amazing documentary this weekend about a tribe in the Amazon jungle that still lives true to it's primal roots. They revere the natural world as they know they belong to it as smaller parts of a greater whole, and take responsibility by respecting their habitat and contributing in a harmonious exchange with the ecosystem.

Everything in the tribe is focused on community, contribution, support and equality. The men go out to hunt for wildlife together, the women take care of planting, farming, reaping and harvesting together. They use only what they need, the rest they return to the environment. They work as a team, they share their efforts, rewards, credits and responsibilities as a collective, in conjunction with nature. There is no individual seek for glory, hero or competitive mentality, they are simply yet powerfully a community body where multiple efforts work toward the same shared purpose.

This connects them. Not only to each other, but to the natural world, the plants, their roots, the insects, animals, seasons, weather and stars and made me think, when did we become so isolated in our concrete squares that separate us so far from each other, from our families, communities, nature and even ourselves.


It's much more natural for us to connect through a virtual reality of electronics and cyber code, demanding jobs and commuting stress than it is to connect to the plants living in the soil, providing us with oxygen to breathe, purifying our landscape and being a host to microorganisms that support our micro-biome and immunity.

But, it's time to get back to our roots, literally, and connect our body, spirit and energetic matter to the system in the natural world that is far greater than what technology demonstrates, to go inside to our own hard drive and connect it to the Universal Source hard drive. To realize that we are all connected, we are all part of the same energy, and that ultimately, we are all one.

Knowing this we will experience -

More compassion for one another

More respect and reverence for the natural world

More focus on serving community than serving self

More relaxed surrendering to the flow of energy that we are all part of

Connect to the Oneness of self, other and the Universal Energy in this powerful meditation.

The YOU Power Blog is BACK!

The YOU Power Blog is BACK!

If you thought you hadn't heard from me in a while, you were right, but if you thought I had gone and The You Power Blog was over, you were wrong... The You Power is back in FULL FORCE and ready for some NEW BEGINNINGS, NEW COLLABORATIONS and a fresh NEW LOOK!

This year has brought in a lot of new beginnings for me; I now have a new last name and have begun life as a wife! The week my husband and I got back from our honeymoon we found a brand new home, our first place as homeowners, and moved just in time for the New Year! We've spent most of January designing our new apartment, new furniture, new style and, as well as our home, I've spent a lot of time renovating The You Power website and blog with a brand new logo and a fresh new look! I hope you like it!

What you'll notice first and foremost is that The You Power has now focused itself to 'Tuning Into YOU and EmPOWERing Your Inner Guru'.  This includes every activity of mindful living that turns our attention inward rather than focusing on the myriad of external factors that we are constantly distracted by on a minute to minute basis. One of my favorite methods of mindful living is MEDITATION!  The simple beauty of taking a deep breath, to balance the ebb and flow of action and surrender, to go inward and discover how our body really feels in the moment, in our mind, emotions and in our truth in all circumstances.

This is where The YOU Power begins, connecting, feeling and knowing yourself, so that you can navigate through life with the internal strength to stay centered, balanced and empowered.

If you liked my previous posts about my journey with health, wellness, beauty and skin then don't worry because I am in the process of collaborating with my Soul Sister and Guru to co-create a new venture that will expand into all of these areas, including the mystical and the magical! Coming soon!

For now, The You Power is ready for new beginnings, starting with the launch of it's singing bowl meditation series! Time to tune in? Go for it!
