The Power of Being Guided To What is Best For You The paragraphs below are taken from Dr Northrup’s site about her revised book, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom. Check it out! This is not how we were raised obviously, to pay attention to our feelings. – It would benefit us to pay attention to what feels good so we can go toward that and what does not feel good so we can go away from those things that give us those feelings. Dr Northrup writes: “It is possible to thrive in a female body instead of simply waiting for disease to happen. It boils down to this: Regardless... (Read More ...)

The Second Journey My friend recommended this author to me. Her name is Joan Anderson and I just read two of her books. I am writing what the first page contains. “Most of us, halfway to a hundred, confront a need for greater self-awareness. We reach a point when the power of youth is gone, the possibility of failure presents itself, and the dreams of earlier times seem shallow and pointless. And then we find ourselves asking the tough questions. What am I meant to do now? What really matters? Who am I? For many years, I had ignored these questions because I had too many responsibilites –... (Read More ...)

Worth reading by Dr. Jacobson from A client of mine, not content with what he was doing for a living and desiring to improve the quality of his life, came up with a checklist of projects, any one of which could deliver him the life he wanted. Unfortunately, in his spare time, of which there was an ample amount, he did not pursue any of these projects.  He reported to me that he was unable to do so because he was depressed, he had no energy, he had no motivation, and he couldn’t focus. He asked me what I could do to help him. The first thing that I did to help him was to point... (Read More ...)

The Practice of Gratitude Can Make You Healthier In November, our thoughts turn to gratitude. The health benefits of gratitude, which is really the same thing as love, are an amazing example of just how sturdy the bridge is between the mind, body, and emotions. When you find one thing, however small, to be thankful for and you hold that feeling for as little as 15–20 seconds, many subtle and beneficial physiologic changes take place in your body. For example: -Stress hormone levels of cortisol and norepinephrine decrease, creating a cascade of beneficial metabolic changes such as an enhanced... (Read More ...)

You have probably heard of the Blue Zones from watching an Oprah show or Dan Buettner’s book, The Blue Zones. These are areas in the world where people live to be centurians, they live to be over 100 years old – and healthy, if you can even imagine that. I recently watched the Oprah show I had taped back in February about Blue Zones with Dr. Oz and Dan.  The places that are considered blue zones are: Loma Linda, California – Okinawa, Japan – Nicoya Penninsula, Costa Rica – Sardinia, Italy – these are the ones they visited to show us. I was trying to understand... (Read More ...)

Why is it we have been conditioned to not let ourselves receive?  If someone pays us a compliment, do we smile and say, thank you!  Or is it hard to accept? If someone compliments us for something we have done for them, do you say, “Oh, it was nothing, or I can’t possibly take money for doing that.” Here is what I have learned: When you are ready to receive your abundance fully, you need to learn to be an open and accepting receiver.  You can unlearn not receiving and learn to willingly receive everything that comes into your life. Even what is perceived as bad events as well... (Read More ...)

Hope you have a happy Valentine’s Day today.  What does Valentine’s Day mean to you? Do you feel the pressure that you should be with a lover?  Some of us have grown up with crazy ideas that we have to be in a special relationship to be someone or to be normal. Valentine’s Day (or any holiday) can be whatever you want it to be.  You can spend time alone, with family members, pets, friends or whatever you choose.  You are the creator of your life.  If you are alone and would rather not be, then you can change your thoughts to create a different scenario. First you will need... (Read More ...)

Have you ever noticed that there are people who walk around daily, filled with anger and pain?  It seems those people are always ready to unload on someone, maybe whoever happens to get in their way. There will always be someone who wants to steal our joy and our inner peace. We can develop the mindset that we can only change ourselves. Life is too short to give our power and inner peace away to others.  At times it may not seem like a choice, but it is. If we react automatically by going with our emotions, then we will be just as miserable as they.  We don’t have to be right. ... (Read More ...)

After watching the events that took place about two days ago, Miracle on the Hudson, I could not help wondering about those people who were on that plane. When we have an experience that causes us to ask, “is this it?”  How does that change us as we go forward in our lives?  Or does it? I can only guess.  I have never had a close call as that. With all the turmoil in the economy and the media, it is refreshing to hear and watch heart-warming stories. They are few and far between, that is for sure! If we are fortunate enough to learn we only have the present moment, (the past is... (Read More ...)
