Cause and Effect; Action and Result

Posted by on 12:11 pm in Blog | 0 comments

As I was on the elliptical machine one morning at the gym, I noticed that as I pushed harder and harder with my feet and legs, there was a gap of time before there was a change in my heart rate. But there was most definitely an increase in my pulse directly linked to my level of exertion. Action, then result. The Law of Attraction works in exactly the same way: for every action, there is a reaction-even if there is a gap between the two. It reminds me of the scripture, “There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations...

Click here to watch a video about Thomas Edison Arguably America’s greatest inventor, Thomas Edison had an extraordinarily positive perception of life, which greatly enhanced his ability as an inventor. When others might have been hopelessly discouraged after failing thousands of times in an attempt to develop an electric light, the great Edison simply viewed each unsuccessful experiment as the elimination of a...

Your Weight Release Struggle Ends Here! A Physical Learning

Posted by on 12:06 pm in Blog | 0 comments

In my coaching, I try very hard to include four levels of learning with each of my clients to really anchor in a new concept or perception I am introducing. This is absolutely necessary in breaking a pattern and allowing a different way of thinking or being or doing to take place. Frankly, the (1) emotional, (2) mental, and (3) spiritual levels have been easy for me to grasp personally; it’s therefore easier for me to assist others in these areas. The (4) physical learning, on the other hand, has been more of a struggle for me. But not...

Perception is Everything!

Posted by on 12:02 pm in Blog | 0 comments

In a recent morning meditation, I had the thought to present this information on perception and opposition. I want to tell you about two women. One is my mom and the other is her friend. First, my mom— My mom yelled a lot. She was very unhappy and she let that fact be known. She would get up early (3:30 a.m.) and start taking her regimen of pills. The purpose of these pills was to wake her up enough to function and get to work by 7:30 a.m. (She also had an afternoon regimen that helped her to come down enough to sleep, and this she started...

What Voices Are You Listening To?

Posted by on 11:58 am in Blog | 0 comments

We each have a “committee” in our head, which is made up of well-meaning people that we hear when we are trying to make a change. Committee voices hold us back from reaching our potential. What voices are you listening to? Answer the following question on paper, and then listen for a committee member’s input: “I have faith that I will obtain the desires of my heart because . . .” What negative thought(s) did you hear as you considered this question? Don’t try to ignore it! Look at it, honor it—only then can you...

Congruency: Gandhi and Sugar

Posted by on 11:54 am in Blog | 0 comments

I recently heard the following story about Gandhi: A mother trying to teach her child that she should eat only “good for your body, healthy foods,” told her that she should not eat sugar. The mother went to Gandhi and asked him to please tell her daughter to not eat sugar. Gandhi responded by saying, “Come back in one month.” The mother, although a little frustrated and confused, didn’t argue the point, and she left and came back in one month. Upon returning, she repeated herself and asked Gandhi to please tell her daughter to...

The AsYouThinkYouAre Process and Addiction Recovery (Part 4 of 4)

Posted by on 11:50 am in Blog | 0 comments

The Dynamics of Sharing One on One and in a Group Setting: As you begin to accept and understand the pattern cycle you’ve been in, and as you learn that you took on an identity that was not the truth of who you really are, you begin to feel more at ease with sharing. When you come to the point where you feel safe enough to reveal your past behaviors in the presence of others who are open about their own choices, you free up space for you. There is something very liberating about saying out loud what has been hidden from view—or so we...

The AsYouThinkYouAre Process and Addiction Recovery (Part 3 of 4)

Posted by on 11:46 am in Blog | 0 comments

Steps 6 and 7 Steps 6 and 7 allow you to release all the old programming you’ve inherited through the negative family patterns and traditions. This might sound something like, “If I knew better I would do better, but I don’t because this is all I know.” In other words, this is what was modeled for me or I’ve made a decision based on what I saw happening around me. For example, what I personally experienced as a child was my mother’s addiction to prescription pills in full length, full screen Technicolor! So based on what I saw, I...

Posted by on 11:42 am in Blog | 0 comments

The 12-Step Recovery Model and the AsYouThinkYouAre Process Step 4 in the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous states: “Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.” The AsYouThinkYouAre (AYTYA) process is a powerful and productive way to work step 4 specifically. The AYTYA process also aids in working steps 5, 6, and 7 as I will explain. The AsYouThinkYouAre process essentially uncovers the light and truth of who you are and encourages taking responsibility and accountability for your life. It facilitates clearing old...

The AsYouThinkYouAre Process and Addiction Recovery

Posted by on 7:57 pm in Blog | 2 comments

Addiction today is on the increase. More and more people are becoming addicted as our society buys into the “quick fix” mindset. I grew up with addiction, and in the 1960’s it was definitely not as prevalent as it is today. But getting into recovery from the effects of living with a prescription-pill-addict mother didn’t happen for me until the late 1990’s and the early part of this century. I hope to illustrate the methods that I’ve come to know that work to heal a person who is addicted to substances or...
