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...
A change in stress mindset is how you regain that inner power.
Whenever I uplevel my business, I uplevel myself in the process. It's inevitable really. Afterall, isn't being an entrepreneur just one big self-development lab?
It doesn't mean it's always comfortable or fun.
In fact, growth is often accompanied by the old "Amygdala Hijack"- fear, insecurity and doubt, firing off the morning after you dialed in your next brilliant move in your business.
That phenomenon drives me nuts! I go to bed on fire, and I wake up a blithering pool of self-doubt and overwhelm.
It's like my brain literally turns into someone else's- Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde stuff. It's crazy making.
A flood of cortisol is never a good way to start the day. It robs us of our energy, our confidence, our creativity, our drive. It's nasty stuff, that cortisol.
I got a reminder from nature this morning, when in the hot tub, of how to...
Now, if you've ever had a healing session where you released some resentment about something, you've probably experienced some initial exhaustion, then a growing lightness or vigor.
The exhaustion is because harboring negative emotions is a great strain on your body. When the strain is relieved, your body suddenly heaves a BIG sigh of relief and kind of collapses.
We don't realize how exhausting it is to carry all these burdens.
Many of my clients don't know how to access or move into a place of forgiveness, because it's so foreign a thought. So to get you started in being able to let go, I've broken it into 4 different steps.
1. Get in a quiet place. Find a spot where you won't be disturbed. This could be anywhere that works for you. For me, sometimes being outside in the woods, surrounded by nothing but trees with a nice rock to sit on, works best. Maybe you have a favorite chair inside or on your...
When we are working ourselves to the bone to get to the next level of our success, it is important to take time to re-boot ourselves, our brains, our energy, and our nervous systems.
Meditation is a great way to do that.
If you are like me, that word meditation may invoke images of tortured sitting, screaming back pain, insane thoughts going around in my mind as I try to sit in "silence". I frigging hate that form of meditation. Yet all my life, being wired to worry, I have been told I need to meditate.
When life handed me panic disorder on a seismic scale, believe me I gave meditation a whirl. I finally found what worked for me and so I share it now.
I needed to engage my mind, not silence it, but engage it in a structured, empowering, and calming way.
Images, aromatherapy, sound, and concepts that brought me peaceful images worked like magic. I've now taken that into my...
As a "Brain coach" I teach lots of quick tools and techniques to rein in your brain and unleash your success. Some are energetic, some are nutritional, and some are available at your health food store.Flower essences are one of my favorite quick tricks available at your health food store.
Flower Essence therapy is the use of herbal infusions that slowly erode a negative emotion or energy, simultaneously raising up and bringing in the polar opposite positive energy or emotion. (See descriptions below)
They help improve your emotional and mental state and are very powerful and effective at quickly shifting out one's attitude. They can also be used for calming and relaxation purposes.
For parents of children who suffer from ADD or anxiety, flower essence therapy can definitely help your wee ones. They work very gently and cannot be over-consumed. These essences work at a level to bring lightness and relaxation to the body. Who...
So many of us are facing the change of having our babies leave the nest- be it for kindergarten or for college. It all brings with it the same chord-cutting discomfort. It's actually got a name - the empty nest syndrome.
1. Write a list of the things you are excited about for your child's new time- new friends, new skills, new activities, new stories, new challenges through which they develop their strength and character....As you write- visualize and feel the excitement of their success.
2. Write a list of the things you are excited about for yourself - skip dinner when you want to, eat whatever you want, list the books you want to read, the movies you want to watch, the new classes you want to take...it's time to be all about YOU. (This applies for the young mom too- be intentional about your hours of...
We all love it - the way it feels, the way it looks, the memories it sparks, the physical sensations it fills us with. OOO eeeee... Kissing rocks, lets face it! A make-out sesh can work magic with the old bartender in our brains that I'm always talking about. Kissing orders us up some awesome cocktails. Check this out!
So my advice people?-...
