Three Simple Words

What are the Three Simple words that can help to change the course of your day and your interactions with others?

They’re not what you think.

The Three Simple Words I’m talking about are a guideline to help us to deepen our level of compassion for ourselves and in all of our relationships. How to hold another in the “cup” of your heart~

In my work with clients~ the every day life sometimes gets in the way of feeling true JOY and Vitality. I’m going to share with you a technique and practice to help you to re-connect with yourself.

This technique is easy and will help you relieve stress ten-fold! Remembering it is the hardest part.  So, I suggest you program it in your phone to come up as reminder every few hours.  Whenever I’ve taught this technique; people have shared how different they feel!  Toward themselves, and toward others! This is a great way to speak with your children, or your spouse.

Here is the Three Simple Words technique.

C U P- Compassion Uplifting Positive

Be:

Compassionate

UPlifting

Positive

First, visualize a pair of hands being held out like a C U P.

Compassion: Think of holding yourself or another in this pair of hands.


Hold another in the “CUP” of your Heart

Feel your heart center expanding outward.  Be patient, kind and tolerant.  Be very present with the other and look deeply into their eyes.

Uplift:  Do focus on building up not tearing down. Notice the tendency  to rush to judgment or to rush in with advice. Point out the best

POSITIVE. Feel yourself relax. Soften your heart, and avoid the tendency to criticize. Take a deep breath before you speak and see the other person as capable of handling their own life. Focus on what is right and not what is wrong.

 

Whenever you are in conversation with another, set your intention to hold them in the C U P of Compassionate, Uplifting, and Positive vibes.

Try this and let me know how it works for you!

Conscious Eating- Mindful Ways to Navigate the Holiday Season

“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.

I had plans.... glorious plans...

Then I experienced the cosmic 2x4. That's my term for a course correction in life.

For me, it was a freaky fall, landing on my elbow, bruising a few ribs has set my plans on hold for now.

To be truthful, I've had some  'why me?' moments where I question the higher purpose.  I've questioned what I could have done differently. Yet, the answer I get is "shit happens" and sometimes we don't know the higher purpose.
