I remember how terrified I was during my first Muay Thai class holding pads for kicks. I kept telling myself I am never coming back, this shit is scary. I loved the teacher’s jokes though (SO FUNNY) and the people training there were so interesting, kind, and hot. .
The coach asked me: “When are you coming back Crystal?” I surprised myself by saying “Um next Friday.” I was terrified that next Friday, but I went anyway. The more I went the less terrified I became and the more I loved Muay Thai and the community. The fear went away and going to that gym was my favorite part of the day for 4 years. I laughed so much and so hard! 😂🤣🙃
My Muay Thai name, which we were not supposed to like, was “Princess.” 👑 I LOVED being called #Princess
, but kept that #asecret
! I grew up watching #disneymovies
and reading #fairytales
. Hello! 🧚♂️😉👸.
I remember being terrified telling people I am meditating daily, practicing Reiki, and about the Workshops I am loving at @firebirdhealingarts
(formerly known as Root Mamma), @maharosenyc
, and @animamundiherbals
. I am supposed to be a scientist, what are people going to think?. 🤯😱.
I began to see how the spiritual practices I am learning about correlate with science. I found spiritual teachers with a strong scientific or philosophical background. I began to see incredible transformation and healing take place in my own life. Plus I am having #somuchfun
As Arthur C. Clarke famously wrote “Magic is just science that we don’t understand yet.” I am so excited to keep learning about both science and spirituality (usually at different schools ;), and about somehow connecting the dots. 🧠🌈🤓
