When we want to create something in our lives we have to start with the end in mind and what I mean by that is that we need to have a vision and a picture of what that looks like. If we have a vague picture we will get vague results. For instance, I can say I want to be a singer some day and not really have any direction with it but just that I aspire to be that one day. It takes desire and effort and INTENTION to accomplish it but we can't create it until we know what we are creating. So I need to ask myself, what does that look like for me to be a singer? Am I an opera singer? Am I in a band? Do I sing solo? Am I the lead in a musical? What specifics can I look at and create? What does that picture look like and how do I feel doing it?? It's interesting that we usually tend to focus on WHAT I want to do more than HOW DO I WANT TO FEEL? Even more interesting is how we focus on what we don't want versus what we do want.
Truly underneath it all we are looking for "feeling experiences" . I may want to go to Paris and visit and see the sights but underneath it all I'm really looking for something I want to experience! How do I want to feel looking at the sites and visiting? When we look back at memories, it's usually how we felt in the experience that brings it to mind. Our feelings need to be connected to our intention. That gives them more power!!
So today sit down and envision WHAT you want to experience and HOW you want to FEEL doing it and then write it down and focus on it for 5 minutes every day. Envision and get a clear picture in your mind of what that looks like and then really feel it. Just this one thing can do wonders in creating it!!
I was dying and I didn’t even know it.
I couldn’t stop dry heaving as I was rushed to the hospital. It was excruciatingly painful every time my stomach spasms began. I knew something was seriously wrong with me but had no idea what.
I was at my sister’s baby shower and had eaten a small appetizer when suddenly, I had to excuse myself to the bathroom. I was dry heaving before I even got to the door and it was progressively getting worse. I was sweating profusely and in horrible pain every time I tried to drink or digest anything. I made a phone call and soon was rushed to the ER.
As soon as I arrived, I was quickly whisked into a bed and sedated to help with the pain and shortly thereafter taken in for emergency surgery.
The doctor’s diagnosis? I had a gaping hole in my stomach. Bottled up emotions, grief, pain and STRESS were the culprits and wreaking havoc on my body! Stuffing my emotions and trying to function with a fake smile pasted on my face wasn’t cutting it anymore. It had compromised my health and now my life was in danger. In fact, I didn’t realize that the hurt and grief deep within me and all the unprocessed emotions were actually KILLING me.
It wasn’t until a couple of years later that I learned about energy work and techniques that could help me deal with the emotional pain I had been suffering from. I remember using one technique in particular and feeling like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I could finally breathe again! Who knew that I could do that in a matter of minutes, rather than hours and months of therapy?? I was hooked! I began to learn and eventually mentored in these pivotal life-changing techniques and soon after, I helped my children heal as well.
We had all experienced intense trauma and I was finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Why hadn’t anyone told me about this? Who knew that healing could actually take days and weeks instead of years?? I had tried affirmations and positive thinking and talk therapy for years but the fact was I was still hurting. I needed something different and more effective!
There wasn’t any book out there written on what I was doing and I felt the whole world needed to know about it so I wrote a book about it and shared four techniques. Soon after, I wrote another book and shared five more! I wanted everyone to know about it so I travelled the country for a whole year sharing it with audiences all over and now I teach it as a 6 week online class because I believe in the power to heal and that it’s time we heal ourselves and our families and recognize the power of who we truly are!
I have been in the healing arts for 13 years now and to this day I'm still in awe of what I see take place in the lives of my clients and those who come to me for sessions. Somewhere in them is this desire to finally push past all the limitations they can't seem to break through or haven't been able to maneuver through and they want to feel and experience life on the other side of this big obstacle that has had them stuck for quite some time now.
They have tried all kinds of things and yet something still holds them back like they have strings attached and tethered to their back that won't allow them to move forward no matter how hard they try to keep putting one foot in front of the other day in and day out.
They aren't usually people willing to invest in themselves because they've spent so much of their life giving their time, love, support and biggest efforts to everyone else until there's not much left to give to themselves so they take the scraps and decide to be grateful for even that.
Then they finally reach the point where they just can't do it anymore. Something's gotta give. The thought that there has to be a better way and maybe they haven't yet discovered how to get there enters their mind and they decide that investing in themselves might finally have some benefit to it because they just can't keep doing the same old thing anymore and getting the same results. It just isn't working to stay on that same worn out path anymore.
This is the point I get to meet them. In they walk into my life and we sit down and talk either in person or on the phone and I get a glimpse of this exquisite spirit who is covered in cobwebs and dust, which is hiding all their sparkle and shine. They have amnesia when it comes to remembering who they truly are. They have become numb to certain emotions and don't even recognize the magical parts of themselves anymore. They don't see the beauty others see in them because they have caved in to believing big fat lies rather than their powerful truths. Lies like " I'm not enough", " God doesn't bless me", "I'm not worth sticking around for", "Why would anyone want me?","I'm broken", "I'm a failure" and they find the category they they have determined they are a failure in-all sorts of them- failure as a parent, wife, husband, failure with money, relationships and on and on it goes.
So I tap into their truth. Really tap in deep to get to the core of who they are. We gently journey into the place within where they hold their beliefs and one by one we discard the lies that have fogged up their minds and soon the cobwebs fall off, the dust is swept away and they start to remember and see their own sparkle and shine underneath it all. Their heart light suddenly switches on and they catch a glimpse of their truths and all the sudden they start to have this awakening and a remembrance of who they truly are.
Their purpose shifts and healing takes place and an hour after they have walked into my life, they leave with hope in their eyes and a sense of purpose. The heaviness eases up and a beautiful feeling of lightness permeates their spirit. They feel like they can actually breathe again and though they may have the same responsibilities they had when they called me in the first place, the overwhelm is gone. Life holds the gift of hope again and they start to glimpse how life really is on the other side of being stuck and the great thing is they never once had to relive the thing that got them stuck in the first place. They learned how quickly healing could take place and how beautiful it feels to get unstuck and they wonder why they didn't do it sooner. Lesson learned, they move forward into a new existence and life takes on a whole new meaning as they continue to yank out all the weeds that have been choking their beautiful garden, seeds are planted and the rewards of taking this time for themselves reaps the benefits they have been seeking. Oh it's a beautiful thing! And to this day, I still stand in awe of it all. Because that's where my journey to healing began as well and I love sharing it with the world. It's a beautiful thing and so much more efficient than I ever imagined!
