How Ashlynn Finley Follows Her Heart’s Calling to Hold Space for Others on Their Healing Journey

Posted by Jade Marvin on 6/9/22 4:00 PM

Your brain understands facts. Your heart understands emotions. Your intuition understands truth. Above all, follow your intuition. It will never fail you.” - RKL

Living up to other people’s expectations is always difficult. It is hard enough to even live up to your own expectations. When we change how we seek validation and choose to pursue it within ourselves compared to outwardly things or beings, we start to live our life for ourselves and nobody else. Once we can grasp this concept of trusting our own intuition, and letting go of outside influences, we truly start to live our life’s true purpose. Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, Great Graduate Ashlynn Finley, went through just that. She was living a life based on what her family wanted for her, until she made the decision to completely change her life, and chose to follow her passions and live the life she always dreamed of.

Looking in the Mirror: A Journey to Self-Love|SWIHA Student Blog Series

Posted by Aatiyah Mcneill on 5/5/22 4:00 PM

"Keep taking time for yourself until you are you again." -Lalah Delia

A Look into our Self Love Journey:

The fact is that it is a "YOU VS YOU "battle in this life. So get it in your head that no one is coming to SAVE US EXCEPT US.

During my journey, I'm learning that the most critical part is to stop being a people pleaser and living life like everyone else matters except you because you do matter. Knowing that taking care of your needs first is essential, knowing that your feelings matter.

Life for Jasmyn before she attended SWIHA was a bit chaotic, she describes. Like most of us, Jasmyn was searching for her passion and life calling.

The Power of Inner-Knowing: Fran-Kay Moseley Helps Women Connect With Themselves

Posted by Jade Marvin on 4/14/22 4:00 PM

Trust your heart and embrace the journey. You may make a wrong turn, however, your heart will get you back on the right path. Just keep making choices and don’t second guess yourself.” - E’yen A. Gardner

Fran-kay, like many others who came to SWIHA, wanted to find her purpose in life and help others along the way. Fran-Kay came from a humble background. She states, “Both of my parents were uneducated and I was told at a young age that education wasn’t important. That as long as I learned a trade, I would be satisfied. Well, I felt robbed. I self-taught myself, and even though I may not have a college degree, I am very wise and love learning new things…” And that is exactly what Fran-Kay did here at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts. Fran-Kay learned to trust her intuition, stop second-guessing herself, and how to fulfill her life dream of helping others.

How Yoga Teacher Training Changed Eve Garifo-Morelli’s Life Path

Posted by Jade Marvin on 1/20/22 4:00 PM

You are stronger than your challenges. And your challenges are making you stronger. Deep within is a hidden reserve of inner power. Breathe. Get quiet. You will access it. You’re far stronger than you realize - with a capacity to stretch and grow in exciting ways.” - Karen Salmansohn

Before Eve Garifo-Morelli started her healing journey at SWIHA, she was a full-time caregiver for her father. Her entire life, 24/7 was surrounding her father who had suffered from a stroke and lost his speech, the use of his right arm, and now walked with a cane and brace on his right leg. For Eve, this became a high-stress situation having to be a full-time caregiver for her father. On one side, she loved him and fervently stood up to the job of taking care of her father. On the other hand, there were days that Eve found herself not leaving her house, showering, or taking care of herself. There needed to be a change.

Three Ways to Activate the Law of Attraction for Your New Year’s Resolutions

Posted by Jade Marvin on 12/9/21 4:00 PM

Many of us believe that we do not have the power to change our lives or to live our ‘dream’ life. We live our daily lives programmed to do what we are supposed to do. Wake up. Go to work. Eat. Sleep. Repeat. This becomes the system and the wheel of life we become a cog in. How do we attract what we really want for ourselves? To know the Law of Attraction is the first step in making these changes to a happier, more fulfilling life. As defined by Sharon Rose, The Intuitive Guide Program Director here at SWIHA, the Law of Attraction is “a universal law of energy. It acknowledges and has been proved through quantum physics that human beings are constantly and consistently emitting vibrational frequencies, and this energy we emit affects our perception of and experience in, the world. It is the law that says we attract to ourselves that which we are thinking, feeling, saying, and believing.”

Posted by Aidale Scott Crevier on 11/30/21 4:00 PM

Come walk with us

Let me tell you a little bit about myself - my name is Aidale, my friends know me as Lee. I am married to my amazing husband called Bear and we both harvest and make some medicines and forage edible wild foods for our family and friends here in the Northwest of CT. After witnessing the healing properties we were gifted from our land, we have created BearLee Essentials to share the magic Mother Earth has gifted us right from our backyard. We feel self-care, wellness, and connecting back to our wilderness souls and Mother Earth is so important especially after experiencing the many changes we have gone through during the Covid-19 pandemic. I feel we found ourselves wondering how we can be more proactive in our self-healing and health for ourselves and our family.

11:11 Make a Wish! Angel Numbers, Signs, and More

Posted by Jade Marvin on 11/11/21 11:11 AM

Its 11:11 make a wish! Do you ever catch yourself looking at a clock, a license plate, or receipts and seeing consecutive numbers like 222, 333, or even 555? Ever wonder what it meant that you see these numbers so often? Well, Angel numbers are recurring sequences of numbers that have spiritual significance. The line between our physical world and the spiritual world isn’t as resolute as one may think. Angels and guides often communicate with Angel numbers or various “signs” that hold deep spiritual significance. Think of them as a gentle and loving invitation to build trust in your own spirituality. And when you pay close enough attention, you may begin to notice these patterns show up more often as you become more attune with receiving messages from the universe.

How Intuitive Are You? Find Your Strongest Intuitive Skill/Clair

Posted by Jade Marvin on 10/21/21 4:00 PM

With intuition, some refer to it as a gut feeling, instinct, foresight or just a certain knowing that they have within themselves. Regardless, everyone is born with intuition. It can be really easy, and more common than you may realize for people to not trust their intuition or themselves. Especially at the beginning of a spiritual journey or life transition, it can become difficult not to compare how ‘profound’ your experience is to the person next to you.

How do you even become more attuned to your intuition? What does that inner knowing feel like to you? How come I experience intuition differently from the person next to me? All of these questions can be answered by learning what your strongest Intuition skill (or Clair) is. The four Clairs are: Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, Clairaudience, and Claircognizance.
