Women’s Health, Passionate Life and Body Balance

On the Top of Huayna Picchu

I have always been a healthy woman. I don’t get sick, I don’t catch flu, I don’t go to doctors. I keep myself active and happy. I enjoy the luxury of regular massages and meditation. And yet, I had to learn my lesson how to listen to my body more and nurture it better. I am a woman over 40.

There were couple of times in my life when my body said: “Enough, I take a break” and I had to literally stop and give my body what it needed. It was always due to enormous amount of stress caused by demanding corporate role or painful relationship break up. When that happened, I knew I had to nurture my body and get in peace with my mind.

Well, and always when I got back to normal, I took my health as for granted again. Till last September.

The last “Stop Time” came out of nowhere. I was feeling happy and simply great! I was dancing a lot, I found new love, felt excited by upcoming trip to Peru and I worked with amazing clients. So I didn’t see or feel any health issue coming.

I started to feel really exhausted. When I realized that even music didn’t turn me on and that I had troubles to make it through my dance lesson, I got it. I was not well! I got to the doctors to find out that I was suffering with severe anemia.  When the doctor said that she has never seen anyone with such low levels of iron and that she was surprised I was actually functioning, I was hit by a wave of panic.  “What am I going to do if I don’t function, how am I going to survive?” Yes, I must admit, I felt fear. And as you can imagine, that didn’t make it better.

My energy levels dropped down to zero, I could hardly walk, my head was spinning constantly. And I wanted to dance at the Australian Dance-O-Rama competition in only three weeks! I had my two dance solos ready to perform! And I wanted to go to Peru in five weeks and to climb Huayna Picchu!

So I decided to take my health into my hands more actively. I went to a friend of mine who is a naturopath and Journey Practitioner. I just wanted to get back to normal, dance, travel and live my life fully again! And I wanted it quickly.

And that’s how I discovered Body Balance for myself.  My sessions showed that my body just wasn’t absorbing nutrients, vitamins and minerals from my food as it should be. I needed some nurturing on a cellular level. I needed to increase my energy. And that’s what Body Balance is giving me.

I learned my lesson. I have to listen to my body, I have to understand what it needs and give to her.

We all have only one body for living our life here on Earth.  Give your body what it needs. Everything is energy. Where is no energy, there is no life. Keep your energy high, keep it flow, use it for anything you are passionate about and enjoy your life.

Check the Body Balance information and see how it can assist you to maintain your health. Let me know if you have any questions and comments. I am happy I have found Body Balance for myself and I am happy that by sharing my experience I can help other women, especially women over 40 to maintain their heath and live happy active lives.

And yes, I competed at the Dance-O-Rama, I danced my solos, I climbed Huayna Picchu and I am back living my life fully. I am a healthy woman again.

I wish you lot of energy for everything you enjoy and love doing!

With love,

Can you live your dreams through your children?

Can you live your dream through your child?

Hi ladies, Karolina Maya here.

Can you live your dreams through your children?  One lady asked me this question replying to one of my blogs. I felt tempted to jump straight into the answer but something has stopped me.

What is the answer? ‘Well, it depends.’, was the only honest answer I got at that time.

The question has been on my mind for a while. I guess I need to look at it. And yes, the answer is not easy and black and white. It depends.

It depends on what dream you have and how clear you are about your own accountability for achieving and living them.

I was thinking about examples that would make it easier. So let’s go for this one. If your dream is to provide your children with the best education, it’s OK. You can do everything you can to be able to do that and that makes you feel great if you have achieved it.

But what if your vision of the best education for your child doesn’t fit to their dreams? That’s when the test comes. The dream of being able to provide your child with the best education has been fulfilled for you at the moment you have really been able to open this option as a possibility. That’s when your child’s free choice comes to the play. She may go for it or not.  If not, if her choice is different, how does it make you feel?

Another example may be even easier to understand.  Let say that you wanted to be a dancer and for whatever reason you didn’t follow that dream. Now you want your daughter to be a dancer and you do everything to support her. And she is really good. You do it for her, right? Or not? What’s the real truth?

And one day your daughter comes with news that she hates all the dancing drill, she had been doing it to make you happy and now she knows she wants to become a vet. Bang!

So here is my answer. I believe that we have to respect our children’s natural potentials, personalities and passions and as parents do the best to prepare them to achieve their own dreams.

If we project our dreams and sometimes even our own lost aspirations onto our children and we make them responsible for fulfilling them; it’s not fair to them.

So all together the answer for me is yes, you can live your dream through your children if you keep your dreams to be yours, you don’t expect your kids to be accountable for them and also you let your kids to have their own dreams even if their dreams are far away from yours.

So, do you live your dreams  through your children?

I love to know your thoughts.

Yours, Karolina Maya
