Blessed Hot Showers

By  Elena Harder

I had my first hot shower in a month today.

Luxurious hot water streaming down my body. With an endless supply of more warmth and enveloping bliss.

The heat made more beautiful by the memory of the shrill cold water and pounding deep breaths, counting down to find the courage to enter the cold stream when I’m sweaty after a workout.

No I’m not doing some #iceman challenge, although I DO do his breathing every day. #morningRitual #wimhoff

I just haven’t had hot water where I’m living. So I’d rather go without.

“What!! You don’t shower!!?!”

This is maybe only my fourth shower this month.

(And no I don’t stink “like a dirty hippy” gross stinky armpits is a sign of overtoxicity in the body, or can be caused by bad bacteria or standard deodorants…)

One of the beautiful things about traveling is it connects you to the sense of impermanence.

This too shall pass.

Later I will shower more.

When there is hot water to enjoy.

In the mean time I can remember that millions of people don’t have hot showers, and millions of others share or don’t have one at all. And millions others don’t dream of showering, they dream of having enough water to drink.

So if you had a hot shower today, count your blessings. You are so blessed.

About Your Host:

Elena Harder


As a single parent for many years, Elena knows what it's like to live in daily overwhelm that seems it will never end. After suffering from severe post-partum depression for 5 years, and an abusive relationship that she couldn't seem to quit, Elena developed a case of seriously self destructive self talk about being a "horrible mother". She knew she needed to do something different, but couldn't seem to shake old patterns. She started to experiment with the few things that HAD been working to bring her more peace, and combined them into one power packed (and quick) experience, to help find that inner peace, and make progress towards her goal of ACTUALLY feeling like a good mom. Through these tracks she's been able to stop experiencing irrational anger towards child, is no longer experiencing mental health challenges, and has even attracted a wonderful man into her life who is a great father to her son and a dream come true. Now she works to help other mothers to manage and reduce their stress, build healthier relationships, stop sounding like their mothers, and live lives they once only dreamed of.

Are Your Kids Driving You Crazy?

No matter how much you love your kids, somedays they drive you mad!  The little things they do EVERY DAY leave you exhausted in every single way.  You get angry at them when they fight, complain, or ask for your attention CONSTANTLY.  

You try and be peaceful, loving and kind, but then they constantly leave messes... EVERYWHERE!!  
It's enough to drive a sane woman crazy.

You've tried everything you can think of, but they still push your buttons. It's time to Re-Program Your Subconscious.
