Ripples of Change

2014-06-12 07.18.31

As Be genki approaches its 10th birthday, I’m on one hand extremely excited and grateful to still be doing what I love to do – providing you with the inspiration and possibility for more energy, less stress, a better relationship with yourself and loved ones, and the possibility of a good night’s sleep.

On the other hand we’re taking the time to look at the way we do what we do, and to question if there is a better way we can help Be genki touch the hearts and lives of those who are seeking more holistic health, happiness and wellbeing.

Why? because every time I receive a letter from one of our customers about how a Be genki product has changed their life, a little tear of joy wells up inside my eyes.

The most recent one was as follows:

Thank you so much for my last sample. I have been massaging the Be Genki Serene body oil into my 2 year old and for the first time in many many months she is sleeping through the night. It is a relief to find a product and blend of oils that has helped with Georgie’s restlessness at night and my own anxiety surrounding it.  – Melanie Continue reading

Happy New Year

byron

Whilst down at the beach this morning with my adorable husband … the sun kissing my back, swimming in the surf, and breathing in the beauty of Byron Bay beach and surrounding hinterland, I am completely filled with gratitude.

I believe that heaven really is here on earth if we wish to choose to create it. Every day that I make the intention to be present as I walk on the beach observing the clouds, the mountains, the seagulls, the ocean and the way the waves crash upon the sand; or when I look out our living room window at the birds, butterflies, flowers, plants and dragons all doing their thing in the garden, I am simply in awe at just how beautiful this planet is. It washes away all my worries and concerns about the news ‘stories’ that are designed to fuel our fear. And every time I breathe in the beauty of nature, I am gifted with even more unexpected surprises, whether it be a pod of dolphins swimming by, or a coloured flower that I hadn’t seen before, or a cloud formation that all fill me with happiness, joy and beauty.

Creating my life exactly how I like it is something that I absolutely love to play with. Continue reading

I should probably get up at some point

I should probably get up at some point

Do you ever have mornings where you can relate to this cute little critter?

As soon as the mornings get cooler, I’ll do everything in my power to sneak in just a few more minutes of snuggly warmth. EVERYTHING! Even convince myself that answering emails on my iPhone in bed constitutes progress. It is not, however, a good habit for me to get in to, and one which I am demanding of myself to stop as of today, so that my morning exercise doesn’t become a ‘thing of the past’. Continue reading

December Ritual: Create a Space of Relaxation, Serenity and Love this December, by Making it a Priority to be Kind and Thoughtful to Your Self

womanbeachWhilst the holiday season is something that most of us look forward to, jumping with joy, it can also become a little stressful, frustrating and exhausting.

With the risk of sounding a little like the Scroodge, please be sensible. It’s not called the silly season for no reason. Partying, drinking, indulging, overeating and running around like a headless chicken from event-to-event and shop-to-shop, trying to please everyone but yourself, it’s no wonder many of us feel tired, rundown, overweight and stressed as the new year rolls around.

The Importance of Balance

Sometimes when we get dis-ease in the body, it has nothing to do with “catching a virus” or “catching a bug” or pulling a muscle, but more so to do with some other underlying emotional issue or unresolved issue from the past; and sometimes we create the dis-ease, pain or discomfort ourselves on the subconscious level, and other times something different altogether, beyond our rational thinking mind.

March Ritual: Ease Back Pain, Insomnia, Stress and PMT Symptoms with the All-Natural Self-Healing Acupressure Pranamat

I have a not-so-new love that I am forever singing its praises at is has been energizing and relaxing me for the past two years: the self-healing acupressure pranamat. On days when I wake up without a spring in my step, I lay on it for twenty minutes and my energy levels are restored. When I’m in a frustrated or stressed mood I lay on it for thirty to forty minutes with my eyes closed, and am surprisingly a lot calmer and level-headed once I get up. And on nights when I have a million and one thoughts racing around my head, instead of going to bed to stare at the ceiling, I lay on the pranamat for forty minutes. Afterwards it feels like I have had a tranquilizer and am ready for sleep. This magic little friend of mine is also the ONLY thing that I have found to help relieve PMS – particularly the dull aching lower back pain. Continue reading
