“The greatest success is successful self-acceptance.”

Where Dreams Reside

This month is where the rubber meets the road. Where your fears meet your dreams. This is the place where you become aware of how you sabotage yourself- especially when it comes to reaching for your dreams. And, with that awareness, you can reach through anyway- and go far beyond. Trust in the knowing that you can stretch beyond the limits you had set for yourself.

Do you suffer from “when-then” syndrome? This is a consistent theme that has been showing up in many places. In my work, I have met many people who live their lives on hold. There is the woman who says, when I lose weight; then I can begin dating again. Or, there is the musician who believes, when I find 20 minutes to practice my new song; then I can perform it because it will be perfect.   Guess what? That 20 minutes remains elusive, or the weight never seems to come off.

Life is constantly calling us out on our stuff. We can either own it or continue to turn away. Move beyond your fears by sitting in them and accepting them. It is by doing this that you gain understanding. After all, to accept oneself is love more fully…and, the truth is that LOVE is what it’s all about.

Peace

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~ Melody Beattie

STRESS REDUCTION AND RELAXATION
STRESS REDUCTION AND RELAXATION

January 30, 2019

A recent talk at a local library-(see picture) led me to a fascinating discovery:

Humans are an interesting bunch.

Most of us spend many hours, many days and many years in thinking mode.

We think of what has happened to us, or what will happen.

The human brain ruminates, plots, plans, worries, and dreams up many “what if” scenarios. 

Wouldn’t you like to get to a point where you are running the show of what your brain thinks about? 

What if you were able to take a big step back from the mind chatter and to sort out what is important and what is distraction?  How would you feel about being able to make decisions from a clear and calm center?

Are You READY To CREATE CHANGE in 2019?

Whew!
What a ride 2018 has been.

I don't know about you, but for me personally- it was one helluva _________ (insert your own imaginative word here)

Do you remember that carnival ride- the one that you sat strapped in- it flung you around, up and down and spun you around? I think it was called a "Tilt-A-Whirl"

That's what 2018  felt like for me.

Conscious Eating- The Divine Dining Method
Conscious Eating- Mindful Ways to Navigate the Holiday Season

November 07, 2018

“Be one with the food”…that is what I always tell my children, when they are shoveling their dinner.  Conscious eating is about  being completely aware of the act of eating. It is not the shoveling or mindless stuffing of one’s face.  When we are fully engaged in the process of eating- we can deeply experience the tastes, sensations, and aromas.  When you bring a Conscious Eating habit to your life; you’ll be kinder to your digestive system and you won’t overeat.  You’ll be in tune with your body and stop when full.  If you aren’t ready to make the whole transformation of your eating habits, then try it with a snack or  a light meal.  Food can become a spiritual experience, when it is approached from a mindful perspective.
