The beauty & benefits of Nature🌷

5B92980C-8BE6-4399-9255-05DB602DB63AI have always been a Nature lover. Wherever I travelled to, I was sure to be next to a beautiful garden flowers or a tall majestic tree. I love orchids and pretty flowers in my space( my hubby knows this too😊) Somehow nature had this way of ‘  rooting’ me. I think once we are over with the lockdown I will be sure to be there loving her.

Some of the benefits we can get from the outdoor world:

1)Sunlight – Sunshine vitamin , vitamin D is absorbed in sunlight. These are fat soluble vitamins and they aid in the absorption of calcium and magnesium. They also can boost immunity according to research. A stroll in the sun can have beautiful benefits.  You can also supplement with Vitamin D (tablets or liquid) Cod liver oil as a source of Vitamin D. *Supplementary forms of vitamins need advice from professionals as to the dosage for your body type*

Fresh Air- Isn’t it amazing smelling clean fresh air! The air quality is so vital for us to breathe. Imagine a world without the toxic effects of pollution, clean purified air that is so good for our well-being. Oxygen for soul. Nature has this way of giving us this freshness.

Peace – Whenever I am in a space that is quiet I feel inner peace, similar to meditation. It gives you the mind space to detach from the drama and just be still. Just breathe and be still and love yourself in the moment! Mindfulness is key to connecting with the present. Where is your place of peace?

The benefits we gain in this life sometimes don’t need to be searched far and wide, they can be found in the simpler things, a stroll in the sun or a walk in the park. I hope you are always peaceful, happy and connected to all that is♥️

All my love,

To my mother♥️

8BF09CB1-9F71-4867-9F10-CA3316BC531BThis is my mom ♥️This pic was taken when I was in the last stages of my pregnancy. My mother always told me that if I helped one person for the day my job is done. Her beautiful heart told me to live in service, she knew I was capable of great things, she believed in me♥️ She never rushed my timelines, she said wait on God he has the man for you. You see, she knew already through prayer that great things were held by GOD and only him.

We spoke about marriage and kids when I was single. That gave me belief that dreams are possible. I grew up watching a strong women  raise me, a women that picked me up when I fell, that gave me strength when I was weak and Prayed for a future for me.

To my mama. God chose you for me, he knew I would have the best. There’s so much I take from you in raising my own daughter. I love you mom♥️♥️♥️

Today I live my dreams and I am proud to be your daughter ♥️

Happy Mother’s Day to all beautiful moms around the world ♥️💐♥️God bless you!

Your Health and Immunity – Immune shots🍊

FF9BE2A1-B9B3-404A-9B0A-758C5653D427Hello beautiful people!

I know we are all thinking of ways to boost our immune systems and keeping healthy right now! We riddled with thoughts about our health and more conscious than before of taking care of our bodies.  Taking care of our mental health is so crucial at this time as we face the ‘unknown’ due to the pandemic.

I begin my day with an affirmation ‘ I am in abundant health’ it’s the way I build my mental resistance. Do you have any health affirmations?

Here’s a recipe that we did for our winter wellness days.

Our Immune shots have the following ingredients in them:Lemon, Ginger, Oranges, Carrots, Cayenne Pepper and honey.  You can add them in portions in a blender and pop in your vitamin C tablet or multivitamin😊We usually blend them for tot size glasses for our wellness events. There is extra ginger in there so we just add a scoop of honey and dash of cayenne pepper to finish off the tot!

Please feel free to share any new recipes you have tried in the Lockdown to keep healthy. I would love to hear ♥️

Keep safe , stay healthy

Love,

WellnessGenie♥️

Ray of light – Awakening

7F62C597-51BE-4088-A279-E3603F7C570DThe first thought that came to mind when I looked at this image is a ray of light over a dark world. We are living in times of uncertainty at the moment, countries in lockdown and facing a pandemic (Covid-19/2020) that challenges our very existence. Which leads me to keep exploring the reason behind all of this… Is humanity awakening? Could this be a calling to live our truth, to go inward or to find our selves once again admist the chaos? Are we being challenged to live better lives consciously, to respect the Earth in a way that she always longed for, for decades.

What changes are you making at the moment? Although anxiety riddles us at this moment and we face moments of uncertainty. This has given us a time to go inward and  to reflect, to look at consciously making our health and wellness a priority. To finally take measures that lead to boundless leaps in our way forward. To love ourselves with unconditional gratitude and treasure the people we spend our lives with, learning,evolving and appreciating this gift called LIFE.

♥️Be the light in a dark world ♥️

This too shall pass…

All my love,

The Birth Story of Ariana Nevaeh Goosen💖 (Meaning:Holy child from Heaven)

7E9E5F1E-09B2-4739-92B3-F73776C69A5FHi beautiful readers, so I write to you this time as a mom to my beautiful baby girl!  I finally got to share my birth story! For the amazing people that asked here it goes…On the 31st of December 2019 André and I were blessed with our darling daughter, 2.9kg at 8:08pm in Durban South Africa. Wow where do I begin, it was New Years eves when my hubby and I decided to spend those few last moments just being a couple. Our due date was approaching. We ventured out and tried different restaurants the last being ‘Little India’ and some of our favorite dishes there. Afterwards we headed to the hospital for our check up and it was then that my water broke! A big coincidence and blessing being at the hospital , my contractions began there after and I was 3cm dilated. I was really excited to meet my sweet love and had so much anxiety rushing through my body at the same time. Thinking is everything going to go well! The beautiful team of physicians arrived and I delivered our daughter at 8:08pm with Enya playing in the background. There were fireworks in the air being New Year’s Eve, as if heaven celebrated the birth of our baby. It was so heavenly. Hubby and I didn’t know the sex of our baby until the Gynecologist said it’s a girl 💖💖💖 one of the most amazing beautiful and blessed moments of our lives!

Being a mom has being the greatest adventure for me, as much as it is challenging  I’m learning so much each day and mastering myself in the process. It’s been a grand step in my evolution as a person and I continue to strive to be the best for her. She’s given me a new purpose in life, a new magical meaning. Today our baby girl is 3 months old and a precious gift with so much love. I love seeing her personality shine and embrace all the new moments with her each day.

Treasure your family, treasure your children. Life is running by us too quickly. Life is a gift. We have so much to be grateful for in this world of abundance amidst the chaos.

Love and blessings,

This crazy beautiful sacred experience called pregnancy❤️

Hello beautiful readers, so I have been really quiet because my body has been growing a baby…! Woke up today ready to share and excited to do so – finally. I remember this journey like no other, I was traveling to Cape Town with hubby and feeling really sick, I love the mother city but this was not me, we were extremely busy in our lives running our businesses at the time. I had all symptoms of a cycle that month but somehow my body and heart knew this was different… We took a pregnancy test and wow we were pregnant! I remember seeing our little jelly beans heartbeat the next day at an 8 week scan – 2 months along, my braveheart❤️ growing beautifully. I was falling in love, nervous , excited overwhelmed you get the feelings..Nausea took control of my body for 20 weeks and it was rough, I had no appetite for the first 3 months besides the fatigue , changes and insomnia which was hard to bear but I had been growing life and that to me was sacred! 2nd trimester was much better and happier 😀 and now I’m almost at the end.

I remember telling moms how I had shifted body, mind and spirit. I was evolving to a new me I was becoming a mother. I have always told myself that motherhood will be my most sacred journey and really it is so. I have learnt so much about myself in this pregnancy from being strong to creating life, to connecting with incredible souls and loving me and my husband on a whole new level. We both had shifted we are becoming parents and doing our best at the moment to make sure our baby gets the best in this lifetime. Yes we have a lot to learn and nothing can prepare us for the journey but we are ready to take the next step in our journey so proudly and with so much joy in our hearts. Pregnancy is a journey and an adventure, God gives you a miracle to love , to nuture, to grow to guide to protect forever. Right now we are looking forward to meeting the greatest blessing in our lives and I will be sharing along the way. I would love to hear from other moms on how their pregnancies were, how is mommy hood❤️ So much to learn from each other… Life is beautiful when we evolve together…all my love ❤️ WellnessGenie image

Let there be Love and let it begin with me.

Hello beautiful people! On this Valentines day I am  sharing an article I wrote on LOVE. May love, light and magic fill our lives always!

Love captivates the mind, fills the heart and lightens the soul
Love is the only emotion that can make me feel whole,
It has the power to transform, to heal to make one feel complete,
Its grows in magnitude and intensity with every heartbeat
Love is forever in my being….

Love is one of the highest vibrational feelings I have found there is in the universe. I say that with great acknowledgement as with Love for self and love for life our level of existence becomes more meaningful and profound. All relationships begin with love, that tingling warm, fluttering comforting feeling. Trust, respect, understanding, support, communication and self love are other important elements that sustain a growing relationship. Balancing giving and receiving is also an important factor for relationships and should be in equal balance so that both partners are in harmony with each other. Relationships take time to build, patience to develop and a love for both individuals who truly want to be together. Good friendships always make good future relationships.
Make GOD the first priority in your life. Our creator is a powerful force in our life and his love is expansive. God is love and God’s love is everywhere. Relationships based on God’s love first last a lifetime and are eternally bonded.
We as women wish for and dream of our knight in shining armour, that true gentleman. All this begins with placing high value, respect and importance in ourselves as women.  It begins with loving ourselves first. There are incredibly great men out there willing to treat you with the love and respect you deserve. My husband is living proof of one of them – a God sent man – my soul love. We are constantly evolving and expanding our awareness in love together. Allow yourself to experience this love with all your heart.

I witnessed true eternal love with my grandparents. I lost my granddad in 2015. He had taken ill in the last few years of his life. My grandma was a pillar of strength to him in those years, taking care of his needs and devoting herself to him. She was committed and dedicated to their bond in sickness and health, in hardships and happiness. They spent 61 years together on this earthly plane. Their relationship had shown me that true love is unconditional, it is forever in heaven and on earth. I feel incredibly blessed to be a granddaughter to grandparents that have showed me so much beauty, value and depth in love.

Often when we are faced with hardships and difficulties growing up we tend to block our capacity to receive love in its greatest form. We feel inadequate and of no value and we seek to fill this emptiness. Sometimes our relationships are not healthy and we stay because we are afraid to be alone – I experienced this before – I was afraid to be alone. When we grow and develop ourselves as individuals we tend to be better at relationships and we get into a partnership where both partners develop and benefit. We evolve. As we grow older it is important to nourish and love the inner child within us. Nourish your inner child by being creative and playful. There is an inner child within all of us that needs attention sometimes no matter how old we get.

To love and be loved is one of the greatest feelings of all. May we all open our hearts to receiving and giving love and extending it to all around us. As Deepak Chopra quote’s- If love is universal, no one can be left out.

ALL MY LOVE,

Goddess Within

wellnessgenie3

We are nurturers, creators, light bringers, embodiments of love, we have the ability to transform, uplift and create a world that radiates – We are the Divine Feminine , The Goddess Within” I felt the intuitive desire to write this today. A reminder of “self care and self love” and nourishing the feminine.

Often I find myself unbalanced in giving and receiving. I often give too much of me in time and energy. Today I had the reminder to receive, to step back into my feminine essence and embrace the gifts of love and time given to me in GRATITUDE. It is OK to receive, receiving is powerful , it opens up the opportunity for Generosity. The Goddess Within in her essence is receiving, she is receptive to the energy around her in GRACE , Love and Gratitude. 

How are you nurturing yourself today and have you found the time and space to do so and do so when you need to? Simple measures bring great healing, long baths with essential oils, a walk in nature and listening to the sound of the ocean – nourish me soulfully. They bring me back to simplicity.. to loving me mind body and spirit. The only person that can love you greater than anyone is YOU. You are your own greatest gift. This has been One of the greatest lessons in my journey.

I wanted to share The story of Anandamayi Ma by Autobiography of a Yogi – Paramahansa Yogananda – He asks her why is she always filled with JOY and can enter states of bliss instantly. She explains to him that she is aware of her true self. She knows that before she came to earth she was the same. And even after death she says “through the dance of creation changes around me, I shall be the same” This teaches me Self realisation – a gift worth embracing, knowing yourself in true essence and radiating from within. Self realisation is the merging of the ego self with the universal self – an awakening in freedom. As Yogananda said “Self realisation means realising your true self as the great Ocean of spirit, by breaking the delusion that you are this little ego, this little human body and personality….

The Goddess Within reminds me that self realisation in my journey is a gift to know myself in fullness and to love and value ME- self care, self love, self realisation are the gifts we have…all we need to do is connect , when life gets too unbalanced and too chaotic remember JOY and LOVE is within reach always. I hope that you embrace the simple gifts in life in an ever changing world and may you always find your Goddess Within. For now I am grateful to be doing the ”Goddess Within” Workshops and living and expressing me in wholeness. Wellness.genie is a place where I can express my soul and share – I thank you for sharing this journey with me…ALWAYS!  Namaste.

 

Goddess Blessings & Love,
