A Letter from our founder, Diana House

TD_SPIKES

“When I started Tiny Devotions over 8 years ago I felt very alone in the world. I had disappointed my entire family by deciding not to pursue a career in law after finishing law school. People would literally tell me I was crazy for creating a mala bead company. Guys, you have to understand that at the time, malas were NOT a thing and there was no one creating mala beads or intentional accessories out there in the marketplace. Because no one else was doing it, people thought that there was NO WAY that this would work.

I had no mentors and didn’t know any other entrepreneurs at the time. I didn’t have the entrepreneurial support system that every #girlboss needs. I would go to family dinners and leave bawling – actually I would be crying at the table because everyone spent the whole meal trying to convince me to try to go back to law. I had to dig deep and find inspiration and believe in myself.

One of the things I did to encourage myself was wear these awesome spiked BCBG high heels. These shoes were like my armour – I would wear them anytime I went to an important business meeting and would channel my inner badass. So, when it came time to design our new #girlboss malas I knew I wanted them to capture the fearlessness and courage that I felt when wearing my (now well worn) spiked heels.

“I always love listening to Diana as an inspiration and for her infinite business wisdom I feel like I’ve cracked the acne code with all my extensive research and studies. I’m excited about launching my business because even though it’s uncertain and terrifying, I am jumping in head first. Whether I succeed of fail it will always be a success becauseI did it!”

If you’re feeling stuck… reliving the same story of self doubt and poor self esteem, you will be amazed by how much an outside and unbiased perspective can change the trajectory of your thoughts and subsequent actions. The Bold Devotion program is designed to help break you out of those negative patterns, and provide real insight into what should be the next phase of your growth.

If fear is holding you back, be it a fear of the unknown or a fear of failure, let Diana give you clear guidance, drawing from her 8+ years of successful entrepreneurship,  that can provide you with the clarity, action steps, and the framework you need to uplevel

What Mindfulness Helps You Prevent

Losing Your Sense of Purpose

The more mindful you are, the more adept you will be at maintaining awareness of what’s most important to you. Keeping your attention and focus on the present moment helps prevent fear, doubt and worry from creeping into your psyche. Becoming consumed with periods of time that are not happening now (past + future) can be a destructive way of thinking because those thoughts are often worrisome, regretful or fearful in nature.

While It is instinctive and healthy to be inspired and motivated by the past or future, it’s helpful long-term to actively cultivate your capacity to redirect your attention to right now.

Living in each and every present moment encourages your connection with the fulfilling feeling of living a purposeful life. It allows you to tap into your full potential and all that you have to contribute, versus robbing your potential by having your attention elsewhere.

Depression (Including postpartum)

Similar in nature to losing your sense of purpose is experiencing depression. A quick route to depression is to constantly wish your life would have gone differently or that there’s no hope for the future.

Staying mindful will help you engineer habits that serve your overall positive self-feeling. Participating in activities (daily) that make you feel alive and empowered will serve as a motor away from depression and negative thoughts.

For instance, if you love running and you know it leaves you feeling good, then make it a point to run every day. The same idea could apply to anything that makes to feel alive; whether it’s painting, making time for family and friends or practicing photography.

Dysfunctional Relationships

Many dysfunctional relationships stem from an underlying sense of unfulfillment with one or both individuals involved. Going through traumatic events leads some individuals to “take out” their frustrations or trust issues on their significant other; when a more restorative route is to work on healing yourself before you look to someone else for that fulfillment.

If you have experienced a string of dysfunctional relationships in your life, it’s worth entertaining the idea that you need to invest more time looking inside for that fulfillment that you’re seeking, instead of searching for it outside of you.

Emotional Eating

There are a multitude of ways that people choose to mask pain, hurt or disappointment that they have experienced in their life. Some choose substances like drugs or alcohol, while others simply look to food. The problem is not eating in itself, rather it’s when eating is happening and the purpose is not to fuel the body properly.

Many emotional eating habits are brought on by a focus on negative thoughts. Staying present and mindful of the good in each second can prevent you from going down that path of thinking, which can alter or eliminate those destructive eating patterns.

Living a Mindful Life in a Material World

 

FullMoon_04

The moon is full today, can you feel her power? We felt called to tap into la luna’s vibes of presence + release and use this energy to introduce our new guest written Blog 108 series.

Kate has prepared a series that features the importance of living a mindful life in a material world. Take a moment to breathe deeply and learn more about mindfulness. Enjoy! x

 

 

Hey guys! First off I just want to say how excited I am to be here on Blog 108. My name is Kate Horodyski, and I am a wellness and travel blogger based in Halifax.

Over the next few months, I’m going to be sharing an article series on how we can bring more mindfulness into our daily lives, whether we’re scrolling through Instagram, going on a first date, shopping, or anything in between.

I’ll be kicking off the series with a post about brining mindfulness into social media usage, but first I want to share why the topic of mindfulness is so important to me.

When I was 23 I discovered the worlds of wellness and spirituality, and I dedicated the next 5 years of my live to learning and practicing everything I could on the subject. This sounds really great, but what ended up happening is that I became almost addicted to self help, and I got lost in all of the spiritual “actions” like yoga, juicing, using crystals, etc.

After while, I started realizing that all of this “work” I was doing really wasn’t making me much happier, and I decided that I needed to let go of my obsession with self help and get back to basics.

As I began stripping everything away, one idea kept coming up for me: Mindfulness. The practice of being present and mindful in my daily life just felt so right and it brought me a sense of peace that no other practice ever had. In my old mindset, I thought living a happy spiritual life meant letting go of things like social media, alcohol, dairy, and TV. I wanted to have fun, but I’d also deemed so many things that I considered fun as bad or un-spiritual.

Diffuser-1-1Once I started practicing mindfulness, I saw that anything could be spiritual. I could be present in any moment whether I was at the mall or sitting in meditation. We live in a material world and I want to enjoy everything it has to offer. But I also want a depth to my life that goes beyond the physical world. For me, I’ve found that in mindfulness.

 

 

This is not a practice I have mastered, and I do not live my life in a constant state of mindfulness. It is however, something that has had a profound impact on me and helped me to find much more peace and depth in my life.

I am so passionate about merging mindfulness with our daily lives- bringing spirituality off of the mat and into everyday life. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject! Let’s continue the conversation in the comment section below. What mindfulness means to you and how do you incorporate it into your life? Share your tips on how you live a mindful life in our material world, or share areas in your life in which you’re struggling to find this balance.

Be sure to check back next month for a look at how we can bring mindfulness into our social media accounts.
