I may not be there yet, but I am getting closer. This year one of my Big 5 goals is to find more peace within, knowing that a steady meditation practice will make all the difference in this aspect of my life. So far, I am in awe of the potential of our brains and our cellular make-up and I like what I am experiencing.
Five years ago I developed a program where like-minded people had an opportunity to come together, to both exercise and to explore their deeper potential. We call it PMA Lab (Positive Mental Attitude). It began as a Boot Camp series where I included self-development and readings from books like The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer and The IMPACT Body Plan by Todd Durkin. We followed the books through workouts and nutrition and always ended up in a “work-in” experience to GET THE MIND RIGHT! Our PMA Lab has evolved as we have evolved. It is back this Fall, with a “shift”, meaning, it has evolved. When I am asked what the theme of this PMA Lab is, I can only answer, “that you will experience a shift where you leave what you knew behind, find yourself navigating through elements of chaos, and land in a place of serenity.” In the end, finding yourself surrounded by others on the same mission as you. PMA. Try it.
There are days, times, seasons when the world feels like it is crashing down. Do you ever feel like that? Like the weight is too much? It is coming at you from all directions? And you don’t know which way to turn? I have been feeling that a lot lately. We do so much to stand tall day after day; to handle all the little things and to continue picking up the pieces, trying desperately to patch them back into as organized a shape as we can. If you don’t stop and notice what you are doing, it is fine, you can continue doing it for quite awhile. Most of us are proof that crazy amounts of resiliency do exist. But if you have one wavering moment where you pause, look around and question, “whose life is this?” and “how did it I get here?”, then watch out. You are probably about to fall off the cliff you’ve been teetering on into the abyss of self-pity, exhaustion, perhaps resentment, and apathy towards taking care of …
In our PMA Lab (positive mental attitude bootcamp) at The Energy Lab this week we are focusing on our “connectedness” to each other, our community and the world we live in. Nature is our expert and teacher. We learn from the sun and moon and the earth and water and the plants and animals how we are all connected. We also see in our human experience that our gifts and presence are essential to others and part of the cycle of living. This week also happens to be the Believe Walk where over 10,000 people come together to support our family and friends living with cancer and affected by cancer in our community. In one way or another, we are all affected and connected by it. Our purpose is to share ourselves in whatever ways we can to honor the connectedness, knowing that one day, we may be the very ones needing help and support from our fellow human beings.
My purpose and my why in The Energy Lab and the different ways we experience community and creating our best versions, in our bodies, hearts, and souls is best seen through our PMA Lab. (positive mental attitude). Our next PMA Lab is starting soon….”I am training for….”! What are YOU TRAINING FOR?
