Yesterday I got to use my new space for the first group meditation of the year! My heart was full as we sang a heartfelt OM together. I was grateful for life, for sharing with those beautiful Souls, for having participants in my class AND for having pursued the backbreaking, tough and demanding work of getting the new space up and ready!
When we are laying down the building blocks towards a goal, some of the tasks at hand can be so demanding, overwhelming even, that many choose to give up. If you are on that path presently, I encourage you to stay focussed on the end result. See it, hear it, feel it and know you will achieve it!

J’ai eu l’occasion d’utiliser pour la première fois cette année, ma nouvelle espace de méditation. Mon cœur s’est rempli lorsque nous chantions notre OM! J’étais si reconnaissante pour la vie, de partager avec ces merveilleuses personnes, d’avoirs autant de participants dans mon cours ET d’avoir persévéré au travers des heures de travail difficiles et exige de bâtir cet espace!
Lorsque nous travaillons sur la réalisation d’un but, parfois les étapes sont difficiles, exigeantes mêmes, et certains choisissent d’abandonner. Je vous encourage à tenir bon et de garder en tête votre résultat final. Voyez-le, entendez-le, ressentez-le et sachez que vous l’obtiendrez!

It’s 2015 and I am grateful that this new year has started out with a huge bang! I have been so busy working on ground work for some goals, that it has taken me away from some of the other important things in my life. Today, I am feeling blessed for knowing balance in my life. It is normal to put some extra time & effort into a new and budding project, but it is imperative to keep one’s center and to stay balanced even amidst all the commotion of new and exciting goals. Take time to get to know your center and balance point and visit it daily as to stay focused. After all, it is your “home”.

C’est l’an 2015 et je suis reconnaissante que cette nouvelle année est débutée avec un tel éclat! J’ai été si prise pour avec les préliminaires de nouveaux buts, que j’ai négligé d’autres aspets importants dans ma vie. Aujourd’hui, je me sens bénie de connaitre l’équilibre dans ma vie. Il est normal de mettre du temps et des efforts supplémentaires dans un nouveau projet qui bourgeonne, mais il est impératif de rester centré et équilibré parmi toute cette commotion & passion des nouveaux buts. Prenez le temps nécessaire à apprendre à vous centrer et trouver votre d’équilibre et faites-en une activité quotidienne. Après tout, c’est votre “maison”.

Day 7: 8 Day Fast/Cleanse Diary

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Challenge, Cleansing, Detox

Can you believe it?

Day 7: Well, I have I have made up my mind and I will end my fast tomorrow. I have made my decision regarding the liver flush. If I have come this far, I might as well go for it! Tonight I am getting ready for my liver cleanse and tomorrow, I will start reintroducing food. I am so very happy about my results thus far and I am looking forward to my liver cleanse. I really use to hate this part of the cleanse, but since I have brought a few changes to it, I find the oil goes down a lot better, probably because the taste is so much better! It is still a demanding process for the entire being (physically, mentally and spiritually) and should not be done without the supervision of a health professional.

Today was a great day! I had a great bowel movement this morning, my energy was high and I was clear and focused. I took full advantage of the day and spent it with my SELF. I did my meditation this morning, my readings and although I was not planning on exercising, running up and down the stairs 8 times gave me my physical fix. I had planned to do all my Christmas shopping also today because when done early with no rush, I LOOVVVEEE it! So that is exactly what I did. I prepped all my stuff for the day and was off. Aside the occasional pit stop for some lemonade and a potty stop, I felt wonderful the entire day. I arrived back home with excitement. Not only had the day given me a bubble moment, but I got a chance to listen to some inspirational CDs in the car and I got VERY clear on my goals.
I had been tossing a few around, but the fast helped me in more ways than one. Keeping direction is always important. This is what helps me know what to do and when so I feel I am moving forward towards my goals. I may not have reviewed my main goals daily, but with this new clear sense of focus, I am grateful to know where I am going and what steps I must take to get there.

Now onward, towards that liver cleanse!

Day 6: 8 Day Fast/Cleanse Diary

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Challenge, Cleansing, Detox, Inspiration, Life Coaching, Positive Thinking

Day 6: I am feeling great!!!

I can hardly believe that I have not had any food in 6 days, just my plants, herbs and the fasting lemonade. I have not done a long term fast in many years. I guess I had never taken the time, or I simply put too many other things as priorities. This is one lesson that I keep learning over again; the importance of SELF and listening to our true desires. I am loving this time with myself, I am proud of myself and I am excited. I am following all the way through and enjoying the process without needing to hurry it up. I have noticed that my only struggle though is the gnawing question: Is it enough? I hate that! I had never really noticed it before now. I hate it when I do something great and I am proud of it and then I hear myself thinking is it enough? In all honesty, I AM proud of myself and I feel I have done so much already. Do I want to be done soon, or do I go for the 10 day cleanse? There are other things to consider as well, important things that would need to be cleared off my schedule. What is the real reason for wanting to go a bit further? What is the real reason for wanting to stop?

I guess when we set goals that we truly wish to achieve, setting a goal is not the only thing to consider. The why behind it is as equally important. Wanting to reach goals that are our own is such an important aspect as well as wanting those goals for the right reasons. So I guess it comes down to honesty. Being real and honest with oneself and answering the question, WHY.

September 2014 Natural Healing Journal

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Health Journal, Health News, Healthy Living, Inspiration, Life Coaching, Natural Healing

Can you believe we are already in September? Time flies when we are living a great life, n’est-ce pas?

I do hope you have had a wonderful and beautiful summer. On our end, we very much enjoyed the hot days, when they where around, the full gardens which are still continuing to offer us perfect veggies and medicinal plants and a slower pace. I would even go as far as to say that the summer has changed me. I am a new person, who has recently recognized that fear that was hiding behind a need to be very busy, overly busy!

It is said that over-indulging in anything masks some kind of lack that we may be feeling. In all honesty, I agree! I was over compensating to numb my insecurities of making it on my own, of not being enough. Once I took notice that my need to be so busy was rooted in my need for self-worth, the healing began. Don’t get me wrong, I still love to be busy, have lots of fun projects going on at the same time and enjoy my life fully, but the motivation behind it all has changed. I don’t feel a need to please or a need to prove. I have changed that for a fulfilling sense of contentment.

How about you, do you over work, over exercise, over party? Do you ‘over-do’ things? Have you ever taken the time to see if it could possibly be masking a deeper feeling? Or do you feel balanced, in-sync with your life?

I guess in the end, it is all about knowing who you truly are and what you truly wish to live on a daily basis in your life. September is a great month to focus on your goals and to make sure they are pointing in the right direction. If setting new goals or bringing new urgency to your already existing ones is a priority and you wish to get some assistance with that, it will be my pleasure to serve you.

Week 32: Watch a TV show in another language. It is a great way to broaden your knowledge of other cultures. Of course you want to do this when you feel calm and open. It is a wonderful and simple way to enjoy the brain-building it will foster.
Personally, I love to watch foreign movies and even better if they have sub-titles, but that could just be me!
