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
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.
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!

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?
