Healing codependency and the One question to ask yourself in the middle of any conflict

Codependency happens when there is some sort of trauma in our childhood that leaves our spirits wounded. It is a disruption of our faith, our trust and our connection to ourselves that then causes us to project this pain and discomfort onto others. Most of the time codependency shows up in our closest relationships, but mine has also shown up in my business which has caused panic and despair. In order to begin the healing work of this trauma, it is necessary to acknowledge this within ourselves and begin paying attention to our deeper feelings. In order to acknowledge these feelings, we must tune into our inner child who felt uncertain, unsafe and unloved during childhood regardless of how traumatic we feel our experience was as a child.

Meditation - The Good, the Bad and the Scary of starting

When I was first experimenting with mediation, it was rough! My first minutes of silence with myself ended with me bawling on the floor of my living room thinking I was crazy. This is NOT how people talk about meditating so I though there was something seriously wrong with me. I hope to bring you a bit of comfort if you are in the beginning stages of this journey and I encourage you to keep going! Your life will open up if you keep pushing through. Please share in the comments below how your mediation practice started! I'd love to hear your experiences and so would those who are just starting out. With Love, Laura Smilski Holistic Love and Lifestyle Coach Luminousliving.ca

How Routines Help Us Heal

This week I talk about how great setting up a routine can be for ditching bad habits and allowing you to be comfortable going through periods of growth in your life. Routines to not have to be overwhelming. A routine is something simple that you commit to doing each day that builds your self trust and sends a message to the Universe that you are serious about living a better life. This can be something as simple as committing to reading 10 minutes before bed each night to get a better sleep or learn something new. I want you to learn how routines can help you, so watch my video below to get some great tips on how to start! So what's your new routine going to be? I'd love to hear about the small positive change you're willing to stick to.
