How discouraging thoughts can create resistance for your goals.

We all have them… even the best thinkers run into blocks, and resistance, and old subconscious tapes that no longer serve us, even if they did in our youth.  These old tapes protected us, on some level.  When you were born, and acclimated to this world, you did not know (or should I say, remember) fear.  You did not know that if you climbed a tree and fell out, that you would get hurt.  You just saw the climbing of the tree will get you to a higher place.  I loved being alone as a child, for many reasons.  I would climb trees.  Not only did it bring me to higher ground where I could see things differently, and see more of the land, but it kept me in a quiet place where I could meditate, think about things that I thought could get me in trouble.  For example, I never felt like I was alone.  I don’t mean that God wasn’t with me, as I knew God was always there.  I felt that I was being watched, and how do you tell that to someone without the fear of being locked up? I can see air, and I have told this to a few people, and some look at me like I am nuts.  I realize that I am able to see this energy, or maybe this is what Dr.Wayne Dyer calls Intention, everywhere I go – eyes open or shut.  Another has described it for me, Dr. Jacob Liberman, in his book “Light, Medicine of the Future” “that air was not invisible, but has a visible energy that could be observed in both particle and wave form.”

As I progressed on my journey in life, I realized that who was watching me were my angels, spirit guides, ancestors, and all that is Holy.  It took outsiders to tell me along the way, that spirit was always trying to get my attention. My own clients pointed out my Empathic gifts. I used them, because that is who I am, but I didn’t always trust its’ messages.  As I accepted this to be true, I realized that others in my family had similar gifts, or “knowings”. And now, I speak to anyone I choose about these things.  So, even though I knew there was an energy, per se, that permeated everything, and that it was at my fingertips to use, I didn’t know how to do that.  Again, in my journey of life, I discovered that the old tapes in my head were no longer useful to me, and instead of protecting me, were actually harming me, and keeping me from my life purpose, and it manifested many times in my finances.  Painful lessons. Still dealing with some of the side effects..

That created discouragement, in turn, created self doubts (lack of confidence in yourself), self worth issues (says it all..), and self doubting efficacy problems (belief you can reach that goal you – imaginarily set? – and sustain in that momentum – that same behavior – that started it all, and can you keep it going?),  in getting done the things that I needed to do to continue in my life’s vocation, and manifest wealth. Whew!  Did THAT sentence wear you out?!  Did me. And will still wear me down if I keep putting my intention in that direction.  Doesn’t make sense to continue in this fashion…hmmm.. And what has all that cost me; past, present, AND FUTURE? Let me count the ways.. Money, time for myself, time for my loved ones, sickness in my body, using things to compensate, over working, over thinking, spilling into my family life, spreading the same rules of self sabotage… not paying attention, hits the pocketbook, unclear thinking, much less focus on a path, wrinkles in face forming, another three pounds… Debt piles, pay it off, piles again, have some money, give it away – good way to stay in self doubt and worth.  No, life meant growth, but not negative growth, because that’s the opposite of expansion.  That’s implosion – not good. Causes stress and disease in the body, manifests into illness, that eventually doubles the expenses to me.  Sounds like getting rid of the blocks is a very good idea! Yes!! Are you ready? ‘Cuz I Am!!!!!

I procrastinated, told myself that it’s others and not me, and all the other self sabotaging thoughts that kept me from fully using my gifts…. that I SUPPOSEDLY thanked God for giving me! I know very well that I helped many people heal, but I didn’t want to do that as a “wounded warrior”.  That created a feeling of not being in my own integrity.  How could I tell others that “this” works, but wondered inside if that was also meant for me.  So, I knew I needed to do  my own inner work, as well.  I remember Suze Orman saying once that she had 250K (I believe) in debt, yet she was doing wealth coaching.  Of course, she turned it around, but sometimes we have to get to a position to see ourselves; therefore, heal ourselves, so we can help heal others.  I always see myself in all that I tell my clients, and in all that I read.  I take action, then.  If you have been divorced, you CANNOT talk to someone about divorce without seeing your own divorce, and the pain that caused. You can’t unsee. Once you become aware of the blocks in your life that keep you from manifesting – health, wealth, and true joy – and change their destructive thinking patterns, then can you fall into a deeper understanding of what Dr. Wayne Dyer calls the 7 faces of Intention, from his book, “The Power of Intention”.  They are:

  1. Creativity
  2. Kindness
  3. LOVE
  4. Beauty
  5. Expansion
  6. UNLIMITED Abundance
  7. RECEPTIVITY

There is no 1% in the way that UNLIMITED Abundance means, it’s just that – God has no limits to what we ask in His Name, in His Laws, however you describe your Highest Power. Absolutely everyone can make money, if that’s where your focus is.  But, what blocks are getting in your way?  The Law of Attraction has ALWAYS been spoken off, in my belief system as a Christian, and I now understand even better some of Christ’s references – “if you had the faith of a mustard seed, you would tell that mountain to get up and move, and it would”.  “Be not afraid…” “Before you ask, I will answer”, BEFORE YOU ASK!! means to me Someone greater than me has been there.Did I paraphrase that good?  Anyway, you get my picture.  The only blocks this energy has, are the ones you put on it.  Remove them and let the energy flow, and as you gain momentum on your healing path, many seemingly miraculous things can happen.  Just crack open the door…just a bit…

Another favorite of mine, James van Praagh, says in his book, “The Power of Love”, “When we let go of anxiousness and self pity, we give the space for love to do its part”. And, Love is the Healing, and Love knows when it’s real; therefore, it knows when false love arrives, too. Be genuine.  Be authentic. James also states in this book, “Everyone is a unique self-expression of the Source (put your Highest Power’s name here).  This self expression is an invisible energy vibration that links each one of us to others.  So whatever is going on inside of you, will extend to others.”

Practice Love wherever you can.  Karma happens

Stress – the body’s reaction to perception… hmmmm….     Would love to hear your positive comments.

COMMITTMENT: EVERY DAY, plain and simple.

New year. Every January I go through old files, purging those not needed, and gathering my information for my taxes, to give to my preparer.  I have been making some daily habits to improve myself, my life, and my business.  I am always seeking new things.  I daily find things for which to be grateful. I daily find at least two ways to honor someone, somehow.  I daily pray. I daily do my EFT tapping and participate in learning new and better ways to coach my clients, encouraging them to do things daily, also, as that is the only way to manifest.  In my papers, I came across this piece written by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, a German Philosopher, who died March 22, 1832, in Weimar, Germany.

“Until ONE IS COMMITTED, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.  Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, THEN PROVIDENCE MOVES, TOO. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.  A whole stream of events issue from that decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.”

WHATEVER YOU CAN DO, OR DREAM YOU CAN, BEGIN IT.  BOLDNESS HAS GENIUS, POWER AND MAGIC IN IT.

Aging Skin

The human skin acts as a barrier between the external environment that we live in and our internal being.  It is the largest organ of our body and the only organ we need to take care of from the inside and the outside.  As we age, our skin begins to thin out, have structural breakdown, and the loss of vascularity can contribute to this deterioration.  We have less insulating capacity, show more veins, and have diminished cutaneous innervation.  It has less elasticity and the wrinkling sets in.  It has been reported that after the age of 30, there is a 20% loss of epidermal melanocytes per decade.  These are the cells that produce your tan, which is why older people can sit out in the sun and may not produce an even tan, and why too much UV radiation can be damaging.  This can increase the risk of skin cancers along with ethnic origin, sex, and where you live.

Now, while we can’t avoid aging, that doesn’t mean there aren’t things you can do to slow down the process.  Looking at your lifestyle is a good beginning.  I Am a proponent of the Sun being a part of our ‘stay healthy’ process, and I have always suggested getting some Sun exposure every day.   It gives us full spectrum lighting.  That doesn’t mean you should be out in it during the hottest time of the day – the morning hours can give plenty of benefit to your health without ruinning your skin.   Yes, too much UV radiation is not good, but you do need some to stay healthy.  Keeping yourself hydrated, eating healthy foods, and keeping yourself fit with proper exercise can all be a part of the plan, while decreasing those things that can dehydrate our bodies; coffee, smoking, alcohol, etc.  Many lotions can contain alcohols or other drying agents that can hurt the skin, and I would suggest using something simple and natural like coconut oil, or olive oil, instead.  Coconut oil is a medium chain fatty acid and doesn’t make you feel greasy as a thicker oil might.  I make my own body cremes using the oil of my choice, water/borax,  and bees wax (there is a process – you can’t just throw them together and expect a creme).

Visiting your doctor/dermatologist when you notice discolorations or growths is important to determine if skin cancers are growing.  Many things that show up are benign, but it is important to have them ruled out by your doctor.

My BeautifyNaturally two-part program uses a variety of techniques that help to reverse the aging of your face and neck.  By bringing back your natural glow, increasing the collagen and elastin, diminishing the wrinkles and deeper lines, reducing puffiness, and increasing blood and lymph to the face, you will look more youthful and feel your best.  This is a hands-on service.
