Lack of motivation, nothing to look forward to or too many that staying half asleep under the comfy covers seems like such a better choice. Maybe it is also anxiety and fear keeping you from rising and shining your light.
What if I told you that Ayurveda helped me?
Being a white woman raised in somewhat of a privileged family, having been able to go to school, as an engineer, and practice outdoor hobbies, I wouldn’t have thought that I would ever experience mental health issues.
As little as they could have been compared to what other people can experience, there is no small difficulty in Life. And sometimes we may keep what’s stopping us from moving forward to ourselves because we don’t feel that we matter enough, compared to others.
But it stops us. Every day.
When I discovered Ayurveda, I was so much used to all the unanswered questions in my head that I was numb in a way but also somewhat desperate to get out of that phase. There had to be another way. And Sahara Rose’s book “Discover Your Dharma – A Vedic Guide to Finding Your Purpose” appeared from nowhere in my Life and really resonated with me. I was doubtful but every question I had was answered in the most profound and simplistic way that brought me back to my heart, building back my love for myself and others and Life itself.
I was so intrigued that I got Sahara’s other book “Idiot’s Guide to Ayurveda” and that’s when, as I did when reading “Discover Your Dharma“, I felt the curiosity to try out what I was reading and see for myself. And here I am to attest that it works.
See in Ayurveda, as I explained, there are three different types of constitutions. One is physically quite thin and slender, having a hard time putting on weight, loving art, creativity and very often having a millions things to do and on the go.
Another one is more of a medium build physically, muscular, and characterized by a drive to achieve things, and the sharp intelligence that goes with it, often times prone to impatience and frustration.
The last constitution is more of a sturdier frame, easily gaining weight, which such a big heart that nothing matters when we get a hug from that person.
Ayurveda is based on these constitutions that we are all a mix of and provides a user guide for each of them. Covering at what time we should wake up, what kind of exercise we should do, when we should eat, what we should eat, at what time we should go to bed, how we can take better care of our body, what yoga and meditation practices we should be doing. It is all related to the time of day, seasons and time of Life.
I wanted to share with you that just by reading Sahara’s book and applying a simple daily routine to my Life, also learning so much about why my body was acting like it was, I was able to restore balance, wake-up energized in the morning and feel that I was on my way to healing and reaching a State I may never have known before.
That is why I kept on learning and reading and even going to school for it, to bring that simplistic but so profound and potent wisdom, to help you get to know your body, hear its whispering voice and have the tools to answer to its newfound needs.
As I am not yet certified as an Ayurvedic Health Counselor, I cannot yet welcome you for consultations but it would be a real pleasure to bring you more answers and answer any questions that you may have.
Feel free to reach out, I cannot wait to get to know you.
With all my heart,
