mind-bliss-healing-mantraEvery day can be a blissful day. Every evening before going to sleep, I reflect on what gave me bliss that day and fall asleep with happy thoughts. I will say that I have had many days that did not feel blissful, but I realized that my lack of bliss was reflective of needing to change my perspective. I truly believe energy flows where attention goes.

I went through a worry stage that actually lasted a year. Yes a year! I did have my blissful moments, but I could easily erase those moments or feel they were too distant when I was worried. What finally got me out of this mindset was examining my mind’s patterns and practicing mindfulness daily.

Instead of trying to ignore or push away the negative thoughts, I decided to give them a voice and figure out what they were trying to tell me. When the thoughts would come up, I would ask “what do you need to be safe or let go?” Talking to my negative thoughts allowed me to change my perspective and be open to healing that aspect of myself. I knew the worry and negative voice were keeping me very far from my bliss, but by working through this negative voice, I knew I could reclaim my bliss.

A very easy way for me to send healing to this aspect of self was to simply invite healing through this mind exercise. I did this exercise in the evening as a night ritual to support my shift into a more positive mindset. It starts with a mantra, spoken aloud or recited internally, “I am open, I release, I receive healing and I heal.” I would repeat this several times, then ask for guidance in my sleep so I could wake up with another perspective. Little by little, I felt a shift.

The more I opened up to releasing the negativity, the closer I came to trusting that I could let it go and move forward. As I shifted my perspective, I made choices that aligned me to my true direction and invited more energy into my life to focus on what gave me bliss. The more time I spent in a bliss state, the more I could draw what I wanted from life. The magical thing is that the bliss state builds upon itself – the more I was in bliss, the more bliss I attracted; the worry and negative thoughts simply disappeared.

Next time you find yourself wrapped up in negative thoughts or worries, realize you can shift your perspective and when you do, you’ll quickly find yourself experiencing greater and greater bliss.

The gift of self-care

I highly recommend trying the Indian Head Massage after a stressful day or week. I arrived after a stressful day my mind was full of busyness and I felt exhausted, after my Indian Head massage treatment I felt relaxed and revitalized, my mind also felt calm, clear and peaceful, it was like my stress just melted away, I will definitely be back for this treatment.

After many treatments and time with Lisa over the past 25 years, I have come to appreciate her spirit, her warmth, and to trust her and her spa as a safe and inspiring center. Recently Lisa helped me see that a facial was nourishment for the skin and also a relaxing massage treatment for healthy radiant glowing skin.

I have been a client of Lisa’s since I was 12 years old. I feel very comfortable at her spa and trust her with my skincare spa services. Being a University student and on a budget I tend to use drug store products on my skin. I decided to invest in Goddess Bliss skincare; it’s been 3 months now. I have noticed many changes and benefits such as my skin feels more balanced, healthy, my dryness has diminished, my skin’s tone is more even I wear less make-up because my skin feels radiant. I now see the value of investing in quality skin care; I am committed to my new regime and love it.  Thank you Lisa for your expertise and creating such an awesome skincare line!

Coming to Lisa for the past 8 years is an important part of my self-care, I look forward to seeing Lisa monthly as her waxing is the most gentle I have experienced. This is more than getting a service it’s become a friendship, someone I trust to share on a personal level.  Her passion for personal growth has also inspired me to be part of her Sacred Circles for women.  I’ve enjoyed this aspect of self-discovery and taking it to a deeper level in a safe setting with other likeminded women. I love taking time to awaken and acknowledge my inner Goddess strengths.

Being in my 50’s I noticed my skin starting to sag so it was now or never to get on this. I contacted Lisa ready to take better care of my skin and also make time for just me to receive some nurturing. Within a week after having my facial treatment and using Goddess Bliss skincare, I noticed big changes. It has been almost a year now, my skin lines have softened my tonicity has improved, my skin feels radiant and alive. Regular monthly massage and facial treatments are a big part of my self-care now, I feel fantastic, I am worth it!  Thank you Lisa!

I love Lisa's monthly circle so much that it has become an essential part of my life - it is a ritual of sensual experience that encompasses aroma, words, song, meditation, movement, and self-expression. Lisa creates an atmosphere of magical beauty and peace that permeates her home; walking into her space is like stepping into a different dimension that we long for in our everyday lives. The sharing and connectedness amongst the group grows deeper with each circle and I leave feeling renewed and refreshed with a sense of joy and peace that filters into all aspects of my being. It grounds me back to my self and the core of goddess magic that resides within all of us but is forgotten in the daily stresses of living. I'm so grateful that I have this unique and beautiful experience to look forward to every month!
