Awareness

weekly card readings Jun 03, 2019
Hello,
 
We are in a time of immense change!  What I've discovered from my clients and the people that I’m in daily contact with, is that Daren and I are far from the only ones going through a year of change.  Most everyone I talk with are also going through a lot; changing jobs, selling homes and moving, changes in relationships, health issues and losses.
 
The thing is, we know that change is constant, we are always going through change and hopefully growth.  The balance that we long for seems fleeting and not very satisfying.
 
Fortunately, we can tap into inner strength and happiness even when the circumstances around us are unstable and shaky.
 
Take a look at this weeks card reading by Mexico retreat participant Dawn Doll-Fraser and myself, to help you move through change and the unsettled energy that you may be experiencing.  Your tools for coping and managing are more important than ever this summer.

Spring Love

weekly card readings Apr 22, 2019

Happy Spring Everyone;

I’m back in Canada after a glorious month of travel and adventures!!!  The Intuitive Self-Card retreat in Mexico was amazing and transforming for everyone, we’ve already started planning the next one. Let’s us know if you want to be the first to hear when it’s happening!!!

Daren and I are still deep into change and I don’t even know what to tell you except that we are taking it all one experience at a time and finding synchronicity and amusement along the way.  We said goodbye to our acreage and home of 18 years, but haven’t left completely!   We've decided to take a breather by staying in Grande Prairie for a bit longer to allow us some time to figure things out, open to possibilities and meditate on opportunities. It’s kind of a fun place to be, yet limiting beliefs, fear and questions plague me with each step forward.  Time to plant some more seeds!!!

We're well into Spring where we have an...

You Are Loved ❤️

Happy Valentines Day week!

What do you love in your life?  What “Sparks Joy”?

I personally love what I do - I love talking to you and doing readings for you.  I love talking at events or facilitating a workshop or retreat.  Of course I love my family so, so much and I'm excited that Jenkins will be coming home for reading week and then the 3 of us are going skiing to Powder King.  I will admit I haven’t skied for a while and am a bit nervous, but i'll stretch myself and get up on those skis while praying for warm weather!  

Here is your card reading for the next couple weeks all about Love, love, love - compassion, empathy and unconditional love.

I love YOU!

Find the Light! 🌟

weekly card readings Jan 21, 2019
 

Dear Friends,

As we are now well into Jan. 2019 how are you doing?  This can be a low energy time of year many of us, so if you’re struggling at all, please reach out for some support and connection.  You are not alone, and you don't have to do it alone.  
I've had my own low days this month. On Jan.1st we lost Daren’s Dad - Don McKim.  He was a true patriarch of our family and will be deeply missed.
 
Within these days of ups and downs I want to help you find the LIGHT!  Today is a Super Full Moon Lunar Eclipse! WOW!  A lunar eclipse at the time of a full moon is like a full moon on steroids and you might feel like you can’t keep up right now.  
 
What does this Lunar Eclipse mean for you?  You might be feeling more emotional than normal.  Take lots of deep breaths and stay flexible.
 
Here is a video and written card reading to help you navigate this time.

BODY: Mountain Pose– Balance . Stabilized
This card is telling you to find the balance in your life this fall between work, play, scheduling and relaxation.  When you have the balance then you will be able to put more energy into what you want in your life.  What will bring you joy and happiness

Love and Namaste,
Candace xoxox

Vriksasana – TREE: Forethought and Patience

weekly card readings Jul 23, 2018

Here is your video card reading and demonstration of this pose.



Check out in the video below my trick for not getting off balance.
 
Tree pose is about nurturing the seeds that you planted in the spring.  It’s summer time and you had the forethought to plant seeds of ideas and inspiration in the spring, now you need to be patient for the seeds to grow to provide fruit in the fall.  Make sure that at this time when things have slowed down, to nurture yourself and the little plants that are growing and spreading!  Don’t pull them out, give them a chance to get bigger and better!!!

You are loved,

Candace McKim

What is Yoga?

weekly card readings May 28, 2018

What is YOGA?   

Clearing up some misconceptions about Yoga and Asana.

I just got back from a big power walk/run and then hit my mat for some asana.  i’m in a bit of “training” for an adventure that we have coming up so have been increasing my daily workouts and checking in with my diet.
Today though, I want to talk about some misconceptions some may have about Yoga and Asana.

1.  Some people don’t think that yoga is very challenging, that we are just sitting around OMing.  This is completely not true.  There are many different yoga styles some more challenging than others.  However, In all of the yoga postures we keep our entire body engaged, holding postures so that each of our muscles get worked. Then as we move through postures we use our arms to hold up our entire body weight, instead of isolating 1 muscle and using a certain amount of weight to pump.

2.  The other misconception is that Yoga is ONLY about exercise...

Step Up Into Your Purpose

weekly card readings Apr 30, 2018

What a whirlwind trip Vicky and I were on to Toronto and New York for yoga conferences.  I want to begin with us collectively sending love and prayers to our country.  On the day we left for Toronto, jersey’s were worn showing Humbolt that we are all feeling their loss.  The restaurant we went for dinner in downtown Toronto had a hockey stick leaning at their entrance. Then tragically on the day we left Toronto to come home, we hear about a van that killed and injured many pedestrians.  With all of this going on, how and why do we want to stay connected to our purpose?

It is more important than ever to step up into your purpose or dharma.  Our intuition is our soul speaking to us and we need to take action towards what we are meant to do in this lifetime.  I know it’s scary and we often don’t know what we are suppose to do.  We don’t know what our purpose is or why we are being guided to do certain things.  We need...
