Invite More Joy by Re-Centering after a Confrontation or Stressful Moment

"A moment of patience in a moment of anger prevents a thousand moments of regret."

Today we make room for joy by working to heal ourselves, to find compassion even when we're feeling anger or a thousand thoughts of regret.

**** Save this email so you have it to refer to when you need it!!!!!


What's wonderful about handling difficult moments this way is you not only rapidly recover your sanity, you also heal on a deep level. You get to the root of things in such a way you become stronger, much less trigger-able, and better able to handle things the next time a similar situation arises. 
This simple process has literally saved me from myself! I have always been a hot head and keeping my cool was never my specialty. I would often walk away from difficult situations feeling embarrassed and mortified at myself. I would hash it out for weeks and feel completely humiliated!

These days, it's rare for me to lose it. Thankfully, I've worked through enough things to have finally achieved level headed-ness or at least the ability to step back and remain neutral. LOL! But if I do happen to encounter an uncomfortable moment, I use the following recovery plan to smooth things over in my mind and release the situation so I don't have to torture over it!

Here's the 4 step plan that helps to resolve any situation that's currently weighing on your mind:

Happy Memorial Day! A Simple Clearing to Live More Fully and Put the Past to Rest

Today as I was thinking about Memorial Day and all those who have passed on, I am reminded how short life is. How precious every moment we have together is.

The truth is, this day will never come again! We will never be this age again or exactly this way again ever! Life is like a river and we can never step in the same river twice.

I think we all know this truth logically but we don’t usually let it fully sink in because when we do, the magnitude and impact of it is so powerful it takes our breath away!

Recently I really got this, for just a moment, I got it with my whole being and it changed me!

I think when we’re raising our kids we all know that we need to enjoy everything. We know that they’re growing up and things are changing… but we can be so overwhelmed by all the stuff going on and our own exhaustion and pressures of life it doesn’t always sink in.

The moment I went to visit my oldest son it hit me like a ton of bricks that he was forming his own life.  It dawned on me that the moments of him living as my little boy at home were gone! I knew this, my mind was aware, but for some reason, my body, heart and gut hadn’t yet received the memo.

When it hit my heart and gut, I actually felt this huge truth for just a moment with my whole being! How precious life is, how every moment counts! Everything!!!! My heart got it and it doubled me over with grief. It changed me completely in that one split second.

Interesting how life does that to us sometimes. :/
Bittersweet moments I guess..
Today, in honor of Memorial Day, I wanted to share a healing exercise that would help clear the stuff that gets in the way of us connecting and fully enjoying life and the people around us.

Let’s release the old baggage, the hurt feelings, the unresolved issues that keep us from savoring and fully feeling those we love and all the amazing stuff that’s happening right now where we are in the “river!”

In memory of all the past heartaches, disappointments, failures, upsets….
Let’s start putting some of it to rest so we can live more fully and emotionally available for those we love and for ourselves!


Use this simple process to clear things out and unplug!
This process is called the Temporal Tap. If you’ve been with me for a while, you’re already familiar with this technique. I use it a lot because we can use variations of it to accomplish all kinds of different results. 
In order to get the most out of today’s clearing process, take a quick minute to think about the following questions:

Is there something that has happened or is going on right now that feels overwhelming and heavy?

Is there something you have recently been through that has let you feeling broken, disillusioned, or just closed off?

Is there something that has left you feeling stuck in a really painful place where the emotions feel almost like quicksand? The stress and hurt of it is all around you but you just can’t get out?

Put your focus and intention on healing and unplugging from whatever it is that’s going on or has went on in the past, as you do this tapping process.
There are only two steps to this process.

Step One: Tap up and over your left ear while making the following statements:

(These statements are formed by saying “I am no longer….” They are languaged this way in order to acknowledge what’s going on and what you’re feeling. The left brain is logical and linear based so it responds better when we address what’s happening realistically. Step two will incorporate the right brain. This is when we can add positive language and affirmations. The right brain is more creative and possibility based so it’s more open and receptive to new ideas and solutions.)

Using the fingertips of your left hand, tap up and over your left ear while making the following statements:

“I am no longer willing to be paralyzed and frozen by this difficult situation.”

“I am no longer willing to believe that I will never be okay and never recover.”

“I am no longer willing to carry this heavy pain and heart-ache.”

“I am no longer willing to carry these heavy feelings of blame and negativity toward all those that may have been involved. Even though it didn’t feel fair and I really needed them to have considered others and the damage they caused, I am no longer willing to carry the pain and discomfort of waiting for their acknowledgement and apologies.”

“I am no longer willing to keep my life and happiness on hold because of this difficult thing I went through.”

“I am no longer willing to believe that healing and lightness is not possible or available for me.”

“I am no longer available for these kinds of painful experiences.”
Take a few deep breaths…
Step Two: Using the fingertips of your right hand, tap up and over the right ear while making the following statements

“I am now choosing to feel more love and lightness in my life.”

“I am now choosing to let go and unplug my focus and energy from this situation and all those that were involved.”

“I am now choosing to see the whole situation as being surrounded by spiritual assistance and being worked out for the highest good of all involved.”

“I am now choosing to forgive myself for being buried with this for so long.”

“I am now choosing to forgive the situation and all those who may have been involved. The truth is, I'm feeling hurt and uneasy. I needed to see myself and others handle things better and it hurts they didn’t or I didn’t but I’m willing to accept that we're all doing the best we know how in each moment and it’s time to let go.”

“I am now choosing love, peace, and harmony for my life going forward. I am choosing to feel light and free and know that I’ll be okay no matter what happens.”

“I am now choosing to let go and release the past.”

“I am now choosing to savor every moment and remember that it will never come again.”

Take a few more deep breaths and send thoughts of love and gratitude for everything that you have and that is going really well in your life.

Happy Memorial Day. Loving others and celebrating the lives that have passed and the lives we are living now is a wonderful tribute to those we remember today.

Thanks for reading and participating in this! You’re kindness and encouragement mean a lot to me.

Finding Joy When You've Forgotten how to Laugh!

I was standing at the concert. Everyone around me was swaying to the music and clapping their hands. I hadn’t been to a concert (just for fun) in 20 years. The only reason I was even there was the surprise night out had been a birthday gift from my parents.
I felt stiff and awkward trying to relax and clap along. My body seemed rigid instead of flowing with the music, and I felt like crying for some reason. :/
In that moment, it hit me how serious and heavy I had let my life become. I had grown obsessive about learning and dealing with life’s problems. Every day had become filled with serious study, serious books, serious workouts, and even serious conversations filled with a constant analyzing of life and always trying to get to the deeper meaning of everything..


Don’t get me wrong, I love all these things! Good, in depth conversations are still my favorite!
Yet, last night it dawned on me how much I had forgotten how to let go, be silly, and just have fun! To laugh and talk about nothing, the things like the funny pants the drummer was wearing, the 75 year old man on steel guitar drinking a can of red cream soda… Life is full of hilarious, random moments designed to lighten things up yet I’d been missing the opportunity to laugh and enjoy the majority of them.

A Clearing to Take Care of You When it feels like Your Family is Falling Apart

Do you struggle with anxiety or worry? When we stress and anguish excessively about something, it puts us at risk energetically to absorb other people's issues and problems. This doesn't help them (as they will just re-create it momentarily) but it can break us down and make us feel shaky, sick, drained, and literally like we're going crazy!

For me, what I’m finding helps is to visualize the person or situation as being surrounded by a Spiritual Healing Team of comfort, guidance, and support to help things along. I ask for the support and then know that it’s my task to work to release my own fear, anguish, need to control, panic, and attachment to how I think it all should work out, etc.

How to Bring More Love into Your Life When You're Feeling Alone

It was a miserable day. I was feeling exhausted and burned out.
Do you ever have days like this? Where you just feel like an invisible work horse? Like everything you do is vitally important but only noticed when it’s not done??

I found myself grabbing handfuls of jelly beans and chocolate Easter eggs which I think was my own desperate attempt to give myself a boost so I could keep going. The laundry, dishes, and bills weren’t going to do themselves right?.... (This is significant, if you’re a part of my closed group on Facebook, we have been discussing the emotional contributors that cause cravings for all kinds of different foods. It’s fascinating how much you can find out about your inner life simply from examining the types of food you crave. To find out more, if you haven’t already click here to join the group!)

A Clearing to Feel More Positive When you Wake Up in a Bad Mood

Do you ever wonder what's up with the days you just seem to wake up agitated and in a bad mood?


Today I knew it was going to be one of those days. For some reason, I just woke up with a chip on my shoulder. All morning long it felt like I was battling with the thoughts in my head. I was thinking about the state of the world, then politics, just one nasty cynical thought after another. It seemed like no matter what I tried, even looking for a positive subject...the negative tone stayed. What really bothered me was I could tell that this cynical agitation was zapping my energy and my ambition to do anything.

Releasing the Heavy Burden of Guilt and Regret: A Clearing to Live Lighter

I just found some really great information about guilt and how best to heal and work through it. I wanted to share because guilt is one of the most difficult emotions we all will deal with, especially us moms! Louise Hay, author of “You Can Heal Your Life” cited guilt to be one of the most useless emotions we feel.  Can you believe that? In her book she says that guilt actually creates the most pain and suffering in our bodies and is a big contributor to illness and disease.

Yet.. a part of me cringes when I hear it said that “guilt is useless” because there’s a part of me that believes that we need the guilt, like if we don’t have it, we’ll be terrible people. After all doesn’t it seem like the most cold blooded criminals have little or no remorse and that’s what makes them terrifying?

New Beginnings Can Often Come Disguised as Depression or a Spiritual Crisis

New Beginnings Can Often Come Disguised as Depression or a Spiritual Crisis

"A new beginning is often disguised as a painful ending."
-Lao-tzu


Does something in your life feel like it's coming to a close and you're really wishing it wouldn't? (Or maybe you kind of wish it would but it scares you that it might? As weird as that sounds..)
• Is it a relationship?
• A painful destructive pattern within that relationship like... the part of you that constantly needs a certain person's approval to feel whole?
• A job that feels draining and just wrong for who you want to be?
• A love affair with a food that's hurting your body?
• Putting off what your heart most wants you to do?


***Make sure you read this article to the end, I've included a special energy clearing that will relieve the worry and fear so you can embrace your hard-earned "new beginning."

Sometimes these are the kinds of things that are cluttering up our lives and blocking the inspiration and guidance we so desperately need and want.
Caroline Myss, New York Times Best Selling Author and Medical Intuitive, says that receiving guidance is easy, the first step to connecting to it is acknowledging, "I'm not happy in these areas of my life."

How Negative Thoughts Influence Chemicals in the Brain

How Negative Thoughts Influence Chemicals in the Brain

I just recently found some very compelling information about the brain in Dr. Ron Ruden’s book, “The Craving Brain” and I had to share! 

Dr. Ruden teaches that the chemical, Dopamine that’s found in the brain, is responsible for sending the message “I’ve gotta have it, go get it.”
