Have You Valued A Walking Practice? Well I have...and let me explain.
At first I had my doubts...that's normal!

A walking practice provides an opportunity to actualize our life intentions along with providing an opportunity to
de-stress. Here’s my story…
A decade ago I was feeling lonely, I was wanting a life partner, yet never seemed to meet the right person.
Here’s the walking practice I used and continue to use today.
I set aside a specific time to walk each day with a focus on feeling loved.
During my walk I included self talk…“I'm getting closer, and even though and I haven’t seen him yet. I know, I absolutely know without a doubt, he’s walking towards me too.”
I also imagined seeing a figure way off in the distance; my future partner walking towards me.
When the walk was over I released my intention and went about my normal daily activities.
Why is a walking a powerful practice for making life changes?
When we commit to a daily practice we are telling ourself that our behavior matters.
Acting on our intentions helps us to release limited beliefs that keep us stuck.
Leaning into our desired future state on a daily basis seeds our subconscious mind. These seeds sprout new synaptic connections. These connections provide insights for how best to move forward.
Just so you know throughout this process I did have many doubts, that’s normal! Yet my walking practice seeded a new paradigm for my life. Over time my doubts began to diminish because walking, as a practice, encompasses our body, mind and e=motions (energy-in-motion) with our desired future state. I have come to realize that what I needed was a new a new belief and a new feeling. I began to shift from feeling lonely to feeling lovable, not matter what my life circumstance. It was only then that I met my future husband.
