April Newsletter- Up Up and Away!

“UP UP AND AWAY in my beautiful balloon”

April Newsletter

GREETINGS DEAR FRIENDS:

Whew, I can’t believe it’s April already! 

2016, for you numerology buffs; is a “9” year.  9 is the number of endings, completions and tying up of loose ends. I also believe that it is a year of the      “Re-Do.”  What this means is that it is a chance for us to re-do old patterns and relationships in a higher and better way.  I don’t know about you, but I’ve had several instances where people from my past have shown up out of the blue.  These are people I hadn’t spoken to in years; but evidently they have come back into my life for a reason. For me, this time there has been an opportunity not to respond from typical knee-jerk reactions, but from a place of love, compassion, and acknowledgment of the struggles of another. 

This month, the theme is all about FLOWING  WITH CHANGE.

April is a time to  plant seeds, and to put our energy toward that which we wish to manifest, and continue to clear out old patterning.  So many people are charting the course for new shores, and are allowing themselves to open to the new. 

I woke up one morning with the song “Up Up and Away” playing in my head and it feels very appropriate to what is happening in the universe right now. 

So, it feels time to cut the sandbags, and begin to lift off!

Blessings abound in the most difficult lessons, and so we learn to suspend judgment until we see the bigger picture.  Gifts present themselves in the most unlikely places and we learn to be grateful for them.  Joy is present everywhere, once we peek beyond the curtain of illusion. 

Let’s wrap up the past, tie it up neatly and surge Onward.

Enjoy the spring and feel the renewal!

EnJOY,

cathie

Look for the launch of our new website, and a whole new direction-

 I will share in the May newsletter.

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.
