The Key is not the one on your Key Ring…

Standard

On my way out the door at 5:30am, I realized that my car keys were about 25 miles away on the other side of Miami-Dade county. However, my morning destination was only 2 miles away!

So, off I went, with my thoughts along the way:

I am grateful for my car.

I am grateful for my legs… 

especially when I don’t have my car keys…

I am grateful for my eyes…

Eyes

I look to the West and see the Moon—reflecting its Light in full phase—to guide my way.

My eyes gaze upon Jupiter—the giant beneath the Moon—offering up the support of all its expanding possibilities.

I turn to the East and my eyes see Saturn and Venus extending forth their grounding and protection energy, before the Sun surely rises—with all its shining power & glory—for the grand climax of their cosmic procession.

I am grateful for the vessel that is my Heart…

At my back, Isis enfolds me in her wings of Love, Beauty and Truth, while my Heart—if only I will keep it open—is filled with Peace, now. It is always now.

My Heart

My Heart

I am grateful for this incarnation… 

Before me, a pool of blue and white Lotus flowers. Though I know not what this day will bring, I walk my journey ‘backwards into the future.’

I become the Lotus. I recede into the water each evening to cleanse myself of all my unworthy intents and actions of the day. I emerge in the morning, reborn by grace and transmuted through growth.

Lotus Blue & White

I am grateful for this meditation…

I arrive at my destination, in this body of clay.

I pray My Soul not soon forget, the company I had along the way.

About Coach Mandy

I am goal driven, knowledge seeking, challenge needing, balance finding, Child of The Universe. I believe that what I can dream, I can manifest; it's all just a matter of priorities. I've found that when I do the next right thing, life falls into place. I've learned my most valuable lessons through adversity (usually on the other side of & often long after). "I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing...” Nothing lasts forever except for the love, beauty & truth of The Great Universal Spirit. This One Source (manifested in my life as The Goddess, Isis), always loves me, finds no imperfection in me, and is perpetually & infinitely available to me. (The only other being I know of in this realm who comes close to this is my dog.) I own and operate The Coaching Corner & Pro Fitness Studio where I offer a variety of fitness services, but my true passion lies in the work I do as Personal Trainer & Fitness Coach. I enjoy all aspects of self-improvement & well-being; but I have found that my joy in working in the fitness industry lies not just in witnessing my clients achieve their goals, but in seeing them actually transform their lives. In this, I get to be a part of something greater than myself. There is nothing of value I can obtain, that does not increase a thousand fold, upon my bestowal of it to someone else. Furthermore, when I am seen by others as a leader and a role model, I am forced to be as accountable (or more) as I expect my clients to be. In this arrangement I have always gained so much more than I could ever give. I have completed my entire didactic curriculum requisites for my PhD in Exercise Physiology at University of Miami, including an outside-supporting-field in Psychology. (Doctoral Qualifying Exams and Doctoral Dissertation remain to be addressed...) My current credentials include:  • M.S.Ed., Exercise Physiology • B.S., Exercise Physiology/Biology (Double Major) • Dietetic Technician Registered (DTR)  • Licensed Certified Wellcoach® • American College of Sports Medicine, Health & Fitness Specialist (ACSM/HFS)
