Self-Care For Challenging Times

How are you faring through these extraordinary times? As you know I’m all about healthy Visioning practice and I suggest that we practice focusing on and give thanks for our healthy bodies every day, rather than all of the negative news and virus cell images. I thought I’d share some of the things that are sustaining me these days as we continue our protecting and adapting measures to contain the epidemic. Take what you like and leave the rest (or share with family and friends that are struggling with the sustained circumstances): * Daily spiritual practice – … continue reading

The Simplest Relaxation Practice

I believe this is a good time for all of us to return to our basic self-care routine – or to establish one that feels good: Get up and go to bed near the same time every day. Drink plenty of room temperature water all day long. Prepare and eat nourishing real food every day. Minimize alcohol, sugar, packaged food and the news. Stay as active as possible with walking outside when possible, yoga and pilates inside. Stay in touch with loved ones and friends by phone or internet. Practice relaxation techniques, meditation, prayer or … continue reading

An EFT Success Story

With her permission here is what Haley shared with me: “So I actually sat down to do some tapping on my own (I’m not good at remembering to do it) because I was feeling particularly down and frustrated and wanted to share what I discovered.I was feeling extremely defeated, like I’ve had this war raging inside of me every single time I have to make a decision of whether to eat and what to eat, and I felt exhausted, like I just wanted to give up, and rather in … continue reading

How Bundling Baggage Heals the Past

  One of the first tapping techniques I learned years ago was called the Personal Peace Process. It involved making a list of all of the events, relationships and circumstances from the past that you want to heal.  Then tapping on one item each day, until you have reduced the intensity on it all. Ahhhhh… And then I learned a much quicker and more effective way to heal and release the past called Bundling Baggage. We’ll practice this in class together this week and you can practice this on your own as well. 1.  Choose … continue reading

Give Your Critical Voice A New Job!

All of us have experienced the nagging of our critical voice.  My theory is that this is the function of the ego trying to keep us safe.  It can be annoying, discouraging and persistent, I know.  Ahhhh… And we are fully capable of becoming more aware of the inner criticand redirecting that conversation. 1.  Begin by observing what you are saying to yourself inside your head all day long.  Warning – this can be shocking! 2.  Be grateful for the part of you that is keeping you safe.  Pat your heart and say, “thank you … continue reading

Awareness Practice

Awareness Of the Breath    Often when I’m teaching someone who is new to Meditation, they will say:  “I can’t meditate – I can’t quiet my mind.”  That’s when I love to suggest that thinking of it as AWARENESS PRACTICE and simply focusing on the breath can be so helpful.   Meditation is not something mysterious and mystical.  It is simply a technique and a tool to train our minds to stay in the present moment.  Sitting quietly and focusing on the sensations of the breath can help to quiet the thoughts and calm and … continue reading

Welcoming Anxiety As A Path To Acceptance

As many of you know, I have lived with chronic anxiety for most of my life.  I have chosen not to take medication and have continued to search for healing through meditation, tapping, Matrix Reimprinting (an advanced form of EFT) and acupuncture. For some time I have been free of my familiar morning anxiety, until the past couple of weeks.  Perhaps it’s flared up when I began to have more seasonal hay fever and wake up congested, achy and grumpy. Who knows … Two days ago I woke up feeling anxious and found a wonderful … continue reading
