So one of the major breakthroughs I've had lately in my life is demanding of myself and finding balance in my life between the work and the play. Isn't that an interesting choice of words ("demand of myself")..actually as I wrote that it kind of startled me. Isn't that what being the creator of our lives is all about? Demanding things of ourselves.
Letting go of sabotaging thoughts and patterns, to step into the abyss of new territory, to seek excellence and the happy path.
For me I have demanded balance in my life. This meant sometimes doing nothing but relax, when I really needed to be meeting a deadline. Magically the deadlines are always met.
Maybe it was saying "yes" to my husband or teenage daughter when I really wanted to be catching up on work. The happiness and love I received from that choice more than powered up my catching up.
Productivity is such a hot topic in this busy age of scrambling to make a living, to deal with all the responsibilities and distractions that are constantly bombarding us. We don't even realize how much cortisol we are always producing.
It's something we all need to consider if we are serious about our success.
The unfortunate thing is that most people's approach is to work harder and longer, which is contrary to what I teach my clients.
The pressure of that approach creates a chronic state of stress on the body and a continuous flood of cortisol - the stress hormone that wreaks havoc in our body.
It's just a matter of time until you are exhausted, drained, not sleeping, feeling like sh*t, and just burned out or worse - depressed, dealing with anxiety, or really sick.
As a brain coach for success acceleration, I'm all about getting the brain on board with our happiness, health, wealth, and success. I'm all about the...
Living in these times requires a lot of tools to navigate the conditions, the emotions, and the energies that surround us on a daily basis. Skillsets to preserve our vitality and health, our prosperity consciousness, and our joy.
Much of my work with clients is about neutralizing the causes and triggers of their anxiety in their body so they can live their life with greater peace, power, confidence, and hope.
There are all kinds of things that trigger us. When that trigger is felt is when it can be transformed, but sometimes our body really resists letting it go because whatever "IT" is has been a part of who we are for so long it's afraid to be without it.
Our identity is tied up in these beliefs or fears.
"Who will I be without this struggle?"
The unknown is scary and our brain...
This week try Blue Solar Water to energize yourself and get a little stress relief.
I have been on a rampage to drink enough water each day to really feel awesome. I came to realize that I'd been pretty much dehydrated much of the time. I know because when I drank a lot, I'd go to the bathroom all the time.
When the body is dehydrated, it's like a potted plant that's all dry. When you pour in water, it just runs out. When the soil is moist and hydrated, it stays in the pot.
So now I'm trying to drink in the range of 8 - 16 glasses of water a day. One way that's really helping me is to fill up a large container that holds 8 glasses in the AM and to always take my water from that. It helps me keep track of where I'm at in my consumption. My goal is to drink 2 of those.
You'll notice the 2 cobalt blue bottles on my window sill. These are the containers I use... I make Blue Solar Water which has a stronger energy field than tap water....
What happens when someone's silly and playful? Wild, wacky, and ridiculous? There's laughter of course, but there's something more. There are smiles. I'm not referring to a grimace here folks. I mean a real SMILE! A "Duchenne" Smile which gets the wrinkles at your eyes. (Look it up!) Believe it or not there are many health benefits of smiling.
These smiles are magical things! HEALING things, Just look at the list...
Honestly, that is what the Universe/ God/ Great Spirit/ the big Kahuna in the Sky wants for you. No, actually designs for you; a life full of abundance.
The problem is, our thoughts disturb the flow of life's abundance, wealth, love, health, and joy which is pointed right at our "inbox" of life.
So darn it, we suffer, we struggle, we believe in and experience scarcity. When you realize this, you can begin to really work on honing some powerful skills to switch out the thinking that you do. Most of us are so wired to worry that it's nearly impossible to even configure some nice happy thoughts.
I was that person once upon a time, back in 1997 when I had debilitating Panic Disorder. I actually couldn't hold a positive thought for longer than 6 seconds before anxiety shut me down again. Yes folks, I had a stopwatch to test the phenomenon. However, once I...
With all of the chaos of today's world, we can often feel apprehensive, feel that icky butterfly/queasiness in our bellies, feel exhausted, unmotivated, flat, and “lost”. When our children's fears are added in to the mix, it really ramps up our own response. The following anchoring technique is a quick way to get your body to align into a more harmonious and empowered place. It's very simple to teach our children as well.
It is something I teach my clients to overcome the feelings of fear and insecurity, exhaustion, and powerlessness so many of us live with every day.
Red on the bottom, yellow in the middle, and green on the top. Imagine the stop light on your body having a red light just above your pubic bone, yellow light over your heart center, and a green light on the "third eye".
When I tell people I am a Brain Coach, I often have to answer several questions.
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions...
It means I get your brain working for you and not against you. I teach you how to work with your thoughts and your belief wiring to get your brain on board, supporting your goals, and unleashing new levels of performance, confidence, and security so you can accelerate your success. I'm the FIRST coach anyone should hire because it's the brain that makes you able to utilize what other coaches teach you, so you can stay in action with traction and not stall out in overwhelm and self-sabotage.
While working with me certainly changes your life, I'm more about mastering your thoughts, re-wiring your beliefs, and working with the mechanics of your brain to optimize yourself and your energy of success. My training is vastly different. I am an...
Ever notice that when you focus on achieving a goal, you focus on all the things that you haven’t done yet, what you haven’t achieved yet, what you don’t have yet… All the things that create dissatisfaction, pressure, stress, and bummer feelings and energy?
What’s up with that?
We never celebrate our baby steps towards the goal, the daily tasks that we accomplished that are taking us ever closer and closer. No.
We just focus on our shortcomings and limitations. Especially in the arena of money, abundance and prosperity I had a real eye opener the other day and I had to chuckle.
For years I have been working on building my abundance and gratidude consciousness, and my wealth awareness. Years of studies, lots of energy healing work, hours upon hours of visualization and affirmations.
I always focused on trying to live with wealth consciousness in order to have more...
When making difficult decisions it totally drains you, and wastes your time. When chronic, it creates anxiety and depression.
If you're constantly making difficult decisions but can't seem to choose, that indecision just plain squelches your self-confidence.
Many of my clients have problems with decision making, probably because it's one of my weak points. "As within, so without" kinda stuff. I'm a bright and shiny object person with a VERY active and creative mind. I have had to ramp that quality down to become a successful entrepreneur.
I have found these 6 steps to be most effective and help me immensely when faced with having to make a difficult decision.
1. First I place both options in a win-win model. When trying overcome indecision, instead of looking at all the bad "what-if's", I look at the benefits of each option. This opens my mind to what is possible, what can be gained,...
