Ohhh it’s been so long! I’ve missed writing. I’ve missed connecting and sharing things with you.

I’m so happy to be back! I really took time to become still during the holy month of Ramadan. While the rest of the city escaped the ever-increasing summer temperatures, I took the opportunity to enjoy some peace and quiet. Honouring Ramadan this year gave me the opportunity to turn within and give back to myself and give back to others in a much deeper way.

I reconnected to a lot of the positive and spiritual practices that I had let slide, because of, well, life and busy-ness.

I talk about one of these practices in today’s podcast, and I challenge you to join me in doing it for twenty-four hours. If that doesn’t seem like a long time, then wait until you hear what it is. Doing this practice for twenty-four hours is a huge challenge! But so worth it.

Find out what it is by listening to the podcast below.

As I said, I would love to hear from you.

On a scale of 1-10 how challenging did you find implementing this practice for twenty-four hours to be?

How can this practice be helpful to you in your life? What would it change?

Thank you for listening and I’ll catch you again soon for Kira in the Middle.

With lots of love,

I have no idea if this podcast will be useful for you.

I simply felt guided to record myself in the middle of a semi-meltdown.

I was totally trying to control everything, to the point of really working myself up  into a highly stressed state.

The situation itself wasn’t stressful at all, rather my attachments and need to control EVERYTHING were getting in the way of me being present and calm in the moment.

Through this experience I gained huge insight into what was really important to me.  You’ll hear me talk about my journey from a girl with a backpack to know having a wonderful home that I adore.

Challenges are one of our greatest teachers.

As you listen to this recording you will notice how I was able to witness my reaction to the situation and turn it around with a simple prayer and by being compassionate towards myself.

I recorded this podcast while in the middle of this high stress, controlling, fear-based emotional state, so I ramble on for awhile until I reach a point of understanding, compassion, and finally release from the fear and need to control. Read More
