Rebirth of life

The aroma of new life fills the air as Springs inception begins. No matter what else is going on in your world, there is an uplifting sensation when Spring begins and the air is filled with the subtle distant scent of tomorrows flowers. I too am feeling an emergence of expectancy and optimism. 
Each Spring I am reminded of New Beginnings.  It brings rebirth into the present. I believe that life comes in cycles like nature. In the Spring, I reflect upon the past cycles of life lessons and become filled with inspiration for a brighter today and a better tomorrow. This year Spring for me is the beginning phase (seeding time) of the 3rd life cycle since I started my journey in creating healing formulas. I realize this is a very special time. The seeds I plant now will bring the harvest of my actions in the years to come, and if the ground work I lay is of the highest intent my harvest will provide a more balanced life. 

Inherent in my life path is serving humanity and all beings by having a constructive influence, to educate and help heal the unbalance and sickness in our world. This is my passion. I love the work that I am doing and want to continue to serve and educate towards a better world. I continue to create ways to reach out and give a message of love, compassion and balance. 

My life work cycles from learning to help myself, to learning how to help others, to reminding and guiding others to help themselves and helping those who can not speak for themselves.  I continue to learn that above all I need to "listen to what my body needs and treat it with love" first, then I can in wholeness reach out to others. To do this I need to remove my blinders and become educated and aware in the choices I make everyday. How do my choices effect my body? How do my choices effect my loved ones? How do my choices effect the world? 

This Spring I invite you to live life with new un-covered eyes. See the choices you make everyday in the perspective of how those choices matter to your health and the health of the planet.

Happy Spring springing!
Be Well.

Live your Passion

Dancing at the Falls in Ithaca, N.Y.

We just recently watched the TV series called “Live to Dance” and we shared it with our 8-year-old daughter, Trinnu. It was similar to American Idol, but it was a dance contest with no age restrictions. The contestants’ ages ranged from 7 to 70. The winners ended up being a 9-year-old “couple”, who flawlessly performed ballroom style dance routines.

At bedtime on the night the winners had been announced, Trinnu proclaimed, “I’ll never be famous.” She said that she is not nearly as talented as the kids on the show. I asked her if she remembered the name of the show. I asked her if she REALLY wanted to “Live to DANCE?  I explained to her that the most important thing is to love what you do. I told her that if she puts her heart into what ever she does and lives her passion she will be successful and…possibly famous!

Since that night, I have been doing a lot of reflecting on how this applies to me. I realize that I have been profoundly blessed in that I not only found my passion, but I live it. I love what I do. I began studying herbs and formulating remedies and skin care when I was seeking to improve my own health over 20 years ago. As my knowledge continues to grow, so does my passion for what I do.

What exactly do I do? Well, I formulate and create organic and natural remedies for healing and natural skin care products free of toxic synthetic chemicals. I educate folks on preventative health care and living in harmony with nature. I work individually doing hands on treatments for skin care and whole body wellness. And… I continue to learn as I go from each and everyone one I work with towards a balanced life.

Unlike Trinnu, I am not concerned about being “famous”, but success is important me. Success to me means loving what you do, living in harmony with nature and attaining financial balance. Just like nature, I feel success comes in waves or cycles. My job is to be present in the cycle, ride the waves and live my passion.

Be Well. Mahara
