The Knowledge and Wisdom of Longevity
My name is Ashley Proveaux- Moorefield. I am a certified Ayurvedic (the science and wisdom of life) Health Counselor, Holistic Body Therapist, Energy Healer, Life Activation Practitioner, and Yoga Instructor. I've studied at Full Circle Yoga, Institute for Integrative Nutrition, California College of Ayurveda, Aithein Healing School, Wellness Institute, and Modern Mystery School.
Growing up, I felt lost. I wanted to be happy but didn't know how to. I wanted to feel joyful and didn't know how to. I wanted to feel healthy and be healthy but didn't know how to. There were so many different diet fads and health articles with conflicting messages and statements floating around. I was utterly confused. All I knew was that I didn't feel "right", and I had no idea what to do to feel "right." I didn't know what balanced, healthy, and aligned really meant or felt like. All I knew was that I wasn't there. When I began studying Yoga and Ayurveda, and then later down the road began studying with the Modern Mystery School, a few things started to clicked and life opened up and really became Magickal. I began to see and understand myself and life in different way. I gained new perspectives and began to heal and grow at a very deep level. Throughout my years of practicing, learning and continuing to grow, I can now say I am at a place of balance more consistently throughout my life, and the magick and synchronicity I had only read about it books, has become an every day experience. Life is so much more beautiful than we can sometimes see. We are so much more beautiful, so much more capable, and so much more powerful than we consciously realize and know now. There is so much potential within each of us. It is my goal and purpose to help you find yourself again. To help you realize just how powerful and beautiful you really are.
My passion is to shine a light on that road back to yourself. From there you walk the path and witness your life open up and blossom .It is not just an absence of symptoms you'll witness but vitality, alchemy, joy, and wonder."
"One individual's medicine is another's poison"
As your holistic practitioner, I view you as a beautiful unique one of kind individual. By asking you a series of questions, and taking your pulse and looking at your tongue (a map of your digestive system) I will gain knowledge of your true nature, your unique constitution and balance and any imbalances. From that knowledge, I am able to work with you at a personalized and individual level.
Are you ready to find that passion and joy in your life again?
Lets unlock that power of yours and create heaven on earth!
What is Ayurveda?
“The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.” –Hippocrates
Ayurveda awakens the healer within you.
Given the chance, 99% of the time our bodies will heal themselves on their own. The problem is, we don’t give our body the chance. In Ayurveda we look at ourselves and our lives differently. We recognize both the uniqueness and inherent oneness within each of us. The first change I noticed while beginning my journey in Ayurveda, is how empowered and safe I felt. Ayurveda puts the power back in our hands. Ayurveda awakens the healer within each of us. I like to call Ayurveda the commonsense medicine because it just makes so much sense. And, as you learn more, you will see exactly what I mean. Ayur, life and Veda, wisdom or knowledge translates into the wisdom or knowledge of life or longevity. Ayurveda co-evolved alongside Yoga over 5,000 years ago in India. Ayurveda and Yoga together make a complete science and system of health care and growth.
Ayurveda’s Main Goal: Bring and keep the body and mind healthy and vital so the soul inside the body can pursue it’s highest spiritual goals and work.
Yoga’s Main Goal: Spiritual development, and enlightenment.
Your genetic code- Ayurveda views each person through the lens of the five elements and their inherent qualities. The five elements are ether, air, fire, water, and earth. This might be a little tough to mentally digest at first… I know, I’ve been there. So, let me explain it in a way that might make more sense. Ayurveda uses the laws of nature to understand everything in existence. The 5 elements help us understand the nature of everything around us and ourselves. Each element possesses specific qualities. Earth is heavy, dense, stable and Air is light, subtle, and mobile. EVERYTHING is energy. This theory was scientifically shown by Albert Einstein with the mathematical equation, E=MC2. Energy equals mass or matter times the speed of light squared. This scientific equation states that everything is energy. Under the right circumstances and conditions energy can become matter and vice versa, matter can become energy. Energy and matter are simply two sides of the same coin. The elements help us get more specific with what energies are working through us and around us and how we can use specific things to bring balance and harmony to our body and mind. We easily see the five elements in our physical surroundings, and as we go on, we will begin to notice and see the five elements and their inherent qualities within our food and ourselves. We are mini replicas of nature itself.
The Elements and how they relate to You
Let’s quickly look at where we see the five elements in our body. Earth is present in the fact that we are somewhat solid. We can see and touch our bodies. Our physical body is sustained by the food we eat from our natural earth. In this it makes more sense that we are simply a mini replica of nature, made up of the five elements because we easily utilize plants, herbs, minerals, and water from our natural earth to sustain our physical body because these substances are the same in composition and character to our own underlying make-up. As we continue, you will learn that each food, like us are a varying ration of the 5 elements. Therefore, we can use specific foods to satisfy and nourish our specific needs. Water makes up 70% of our body. Water is our life sustaining nectar. We cannot go very long without water. Water makes up about 70% of our body and Earth. The water element represents the subconscious and unconscious mind. Water is present in the plasma and mucus secretions of our body. Fire is behind all transformation and digestion. There is a fire in our stomach- hydrochloric acid and pepsin that break down the food we eat into smaller molecules. The fire in our mind digests sensory information coming in. Air is behind all movement. The movement of limbs, breath, thoughts, blood- circulation. Air is behind the absorption of nutrients through the small intestine and water through the large intestine. Air delivers the nutrients and minerals we consume to our cells and tissues for nourishment. The air element in our mind "makes sense" of the sensory input the fire element is digesting. The air element helps us link events and things together and understand things. The air element when in balance can also help us in shifting perspectives and seeing more than one reality. Ether is always present, humbly residing in background giving a space for the elements to interact in this way. Ether represents spirit, oneness. It is the element that connects everything together.
The elements and their qualities not only shape and explain the physical functioning’s of our body but also our personality and emotions. In the mind, the elements are associated with personality characteristics and emotions.
Have you ever wondered what actually accounts for the difference in people? Why are some people hyperactive and fast moving, while others exude grace and stillness? Why can some people eat a five-course meal with ease, while others can barely finish a salad? Modern genetics offers some insight, but what about the characteristics and idiosyncrasies that make every person unique? Ayurveda answers all these questions with the elements. The elements are visible through distinct qualities and actions, ranging from complex biological functions to personality traits. An airy personality is bubbly, enthusiastic, and excitable. An earthy personality is grounded, calm, and stable. A fiery personality is direct, serious, and passionate. Anxiety is airy-there is a lot of movement. Compassion is watery- fluidic and nourishing. Anger is fiery- heated and intense.
