Karen Baquiran is too much fun! We’ve done a lot together, and we share good vibes.
March’s Experience Tuesdays theme is Grounding Yourself through food, relationship, lifestyle and mindset. It’s never too much to remind yourself to monitor and manage these practices and lifelines. I was excited for Karen to do this months video because her insights are profound and inspirational.
I hope you enjoy this video as much as I do!

MEET YOUR COACHES
Lisa Karasek studied at the University of Delaware in dietetics, and graduated from The Institute for the Psychology of Eating. Lisa’s story begins with her questions around the differences within her multi-cultural family. “We grew up eating the same diet, together, but we all look different, why?” Generations of ethnic and authentic foods and rituals were present in Lisa’s every day life growing up, but developing a food allergy as an adult forced her to look at what she was eating, and that began her journey of deeper exploration. When Lisa met with a personal challenge, the need to develop a stronger relationship with food and her body became a necessity that ultimately saved her health. Lisa, who is also a TRE® certified facilitator (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) and quantum healer, understands how important the dynamics of health and wellness are, and is sincere in her role as support person and coach. Your biggest energetic shifts occur in a positive direction when you nurture and support the wellbeing of your physical body. Learn more about her, and her programs at www.LisaKarasek.com.

What matters right nowis support.Specifically, the quality of it. I am observing what’s coming up. Everyone has something going on, like always, but because of all of the uncertainty and changes to our way for being right now, it’s different. What matters to me is how we are navigating our feelings, managing our emotions, consulting with our beliefs, and exploring our options.
I’m asking: Will you know where the pain is coming from when the shift back-to arises? Will you understand what’s behind the hurt when you want to transfer it?, transmute it?, or transform it? Do you now?
When you can no longer accept the hurt (because you won’t), when you are ready for the truth – transference, transmutation, and transformation of a different kind must happen if you are to come out of this on the other side from where you are now. Otherwise, no growth or development will happen.
When you’re ready for change, you will need to change with it, or, against it.
I understand all of this in a way that you may not understand (yet). I understand why you will need to come to terms with something that is bigger than you. Something deeper will have to take place that’s more serious, and more sustainable. You will need calm, not chaos, through this process. You will need more.
I have not been shy about it – I have already lived through a life changing event. I have been through a process, and I have been working on how to get my message about it to you. No, I never imagined that we would go through one together, but pretty early on in this pandemic I recognized that now is my time to speak up. I know how my experience will help.
I remember a point a few years ago after I started my recovery, when all I thought I wanted were my “old ways” back. I felt my life come back to me, and then that wasn’t enough. I kept going. I questioned what was so great about before anyway? Then I started watching myself grow past my expectations, and then some!
You can too. You will, too. You have to start somewhere. Understanding where all the hurt and pain and confusing emotions come from is what puts you into your recovery space.
If you aren’t thinking about the shift that’s going to happen, I suggest you start. The one thing I didn’t know then, and I can confirm for you now, is – start exploring how you want to be in front of it, what do you want this experience to mean for you?

I began my daily practice of gratitude years ago when I went through a rough time in life and I hit my bottom. I wasn’t suicidal per se, but I was ready to accept death if it happened.
Beginning my daily practice of finding something that made me smile (which is actually very hard to do when you’re as depressed and hopeless as I was), and a gratitude list is what showed me my courage – and that led me to my strength.
What and who I was grateful for just a few years ago were very different than what I express now. Looking back I wrote things like: my dog made a funny look on her face today when she pooped in the neighbors tree box – that made me smile. … Because of those silly things, in time I started to laugh.
I do have to be an active participant in my journey. And having someone, or a group of people, helping me is even better, sometimes even a blessing. I was on my healing journey and at a point where I wanted my body to be strong again – I needed my body to feel strong again – so that emotionally I could feel strong and find courage to keep trying for what I wanted. Around this time I met a personal trainer that I could not afford, but I managed to squeek out a few sessions with him – enough to take some notes, to feel some inspiration, and I created a plan and routine for myself. This also helped me realize that I once had the ability to do this for myself, only I had forgotten.
Forgetting how to take care of yourself is very humbling. It only takes one small gesture, and then your whole world begins to change. Sometimes people see, and so they help. Others, like GB the personal trainer probably never knew what was driving me those few times we met. But I was with myself 100% of the time. I cannot even begin to sit here and write out the many ways I have grown since then. Hell, I probably don’t even know them all myself – these are the sorts of things that trickle out over time. Making the connections is the importance of the lesson, and then doing something with what you learned.
I still need to actively seek gratitude and courage. I have to remember. I still need to be conscious of when I’m not smiling. I still need to find my patterns. These things truly keep my head on straight. It’s about priority and it’s about choice. Because I want life experience. A better one. I want happiness. I want to feel joy. I don’t want to feel hurt. I don’t want to feel wounded. So I practice – daily. And now when you look at my list, you will find entries like: I am grateful for meeting RB – she is such an inspiration, and because of her I can see things in a new way, and I feel better.
Isn’t it remarkable how you find what you need when you need it, not even yet fully realizing what it will ultimately give you?! Sometimes it may take years and many cycles of something working itself out to realize what a gift it truly is. You do have to be an active participant in your journey, all the time.
