Take A Moment To Use This Simple Stress Release/Re-framing Tool!

Standard

I have been a holistic therapist/teacher/coach for over 34 years. My work can be very esoteric but I also focus on work that is practical and gets results. For several years I took workshops into companies and government agencies as well as teaching them publicly. I liked to teach simple tools that can be used in the moment to shift things so a person could get back to trust, peace, and clarity.

I received an email from a friend today whose daughter had been at the Boston Marathon but left an hour before the bombs exploded. I can understand his concern and fear when he first heard of the tragedy and didn’t know if his daughter was safe or not. But since he found out about her safety, he has been watching the news non-stop, has developed sores all over his body, hasn’t slept well, has been unable to work, letting the stress and fear overwhelm him and he has bought into the media hype.

Things happen in our lives, to us, and others. And yes, it is important to have compassion, and normal for us to have reactions to things. But when we let it continue to override our peace, we just end up making ourselves sick, and drawing more and more negativity to ourselves. We are left unable to contribute in any way or make clear decisions.

I’d like to share with you a tool that is on my website. What I love about this tool is that you can use it in the more detailed way to shift something that you are reacting to in the moment, or use it for something that happened in the past. When we react to something now or in the past, we attach an emotional charge to that event, make decisions about ourselves and life based on those emotions and will continue to script and live our lives from that emotional place, until we are able to be present and shift ourselves to make a new choice. So you can also use this tool in the moment, just simply using the hand holds as described and not going through the steps.

I hope you find it useful. Remember, you do have a choice, you are in charge. Choose peace!!!!

Shining Your Light

Standard

Sunflower red

When tragedy happens in our lives, our country, our world, it is easy to move into a feelings of fear, hopelessness, dis-empowerment, anger or hopelessness. It is also easy to just read the immediate signs, rather than looking for truth.

As the world goes through it’s transformation now and we are in the midst of taking back control from institutions, governments, companies, and policies that have served to enslave us for so long, keep us feeling weak, and limited; and as we as individuals are in the process of releasing habits, patterns, and beliefs that have kept us feeling small and kept us from the truth of our beings, it can be overwhelming.

Please don’t give up! Please don’t buy into fear within you or the fear that the media so loves to promote.

Please do keep on staying in your heart, feeling your courage, and shining your light for all to see!

Please do keep your mind, heart and soul pointed toward your deepest dreams for yourself and the world.

You will succeed! And it will be worth the effort, dedication and struggles you have gone through.

So when you need to rest and retreat for awhile, do so. And when you are ready, pick yourself up and shine out some more! The world is in need of your light!
