Don't you just love it when you see a quote on Facebook and it stays with you all day? Here's the one I saw today.
"Time isn't precious at all because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time; the Now. The more you are focused on time –past and future- the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is." –Eckart Tolle
So what is it that keeps us from living in and enjoying the present moment? I think the biggest culprit keeping us attached to the pain of the past, or worried about the future, is the unresolved emotional baggage that's constantly simmering just under the surface. These buried issues literally exhaust our energy and quietly steal our lives.
When we hold on to this old stuff it automatically keeps our life force energy plugged into it. This not only causes us to feel drained and subtly agitated, it sets us up to keep the pattern alive so we're destined to keep repeating it!
"We repeat what we don't repair!"
Imagine how much more enjoyable your life would be if you felt energized, grounded, and fully present in the moment with those you love. Achieving this for any length of time is impossible when you are riddled with pain and your energy is invested everywhere but here.
Clearing the emotional stress and taking charge of your energy field is the single most powerful thing you can do to enrich and light up your life!
The results are subtle at first and breathtaking over time! The more you do it, the more you will find yourself looking back at your life and thinking "Wow! I have come so far! I can't believe I used to live that way!"
So.. if clearing all the old stuff is so vitally important, why don't more people do it?
I think we've been conditioned as a society to think that dealing with our emotional stuff means keeping busy and trying to just put it all out of our minds. Most of us were not taught how to deal with our emotional pain. We were taught to be nice, to be quiet, and to keep our feelings buried.
The problem with this strategy is it doesn't work! Our emotions are simply "energy in motion." The only way out, is through! They are meant to be acknowledged and released as they happen not ignored and stuffed! When you know that emotions are energy, using simple methods that work with the body's energy system helps to process and release the pain as it comes up. When you bury your emotional pain it literally gets lodged in your body's energy field and cell tissue. It stays there as a subtle aggravation that can be triggered by almost anything.
Do you ever wonder why you feel exhausted and on edge? Imagine all these buried emotions as beach balls you're constantly working to hold under water! Imagine how much more energy, mental clarity, and peace you would have if the beach balls were eliminated!
How much easier would your day be if you knew how to take care of yourself after facing a difficult family member or co-worker? What if you could unwind and release the turmoil and discomfort so you could face the person again feeling calm and centered rather than agitated and annoyed and trying to pretend you're not? Imagine how cool it would be if you knew a few simple techniques that could help you work with the uncomfortable emotion and dissolve it in a few minutes. How much easier would your life be if you could take a few moments, release the emotion, and then respond to your child or coworker? Imagine how much more effective and kind you could be if you felt at peace rather than anxious and frustrated?
Imagine those sleepless nights filled with anger, guilt, worry, etc. How cool would it be to be able to dissolve those emotions so you could get a peaceful nights rest?
A few years ago my sisters close friend chose to end her life leaving her 3 year old daughter aching for her mother. This situation was devastating and really got to me! I spent weeks thinking about this woman and her family and wishing with all my heart I could have had some time with her, wondering if there was something I could have done to make a difference. During those difficult moments of grief I had a very strong thought come to me, one that I truly believe was Divinely sent. The thought was, "If you only had a week with her, what would you do? What would be the fastest most effective way for a person to get from point A to point B in emotional healing?"
This is where the Smile Again 7 Days to a Happier You home study program was born! It's the simple nuts and bolts of everything I've studied and practiced for over 10 years; condensed into a simple program for busy people who are on the go. It's packed with healing principles and done-for-you clearings so you can simply listen and tap along to create healing shifts in your life and release the baggage once and for all.
For most people, emotional healing has felt like something that is difficult, scary, and abstract. It can feel overwhelming because it's not like a cut you get on your hand that you can watch heal in a few days. It can feel huge and debilitating.
I want people to know that it doesn't have to be this heavy, obscure thing that they just have to stuff and fight with their whole lives.
Clearing and releasing the heart ache and stress is not only possible but do-able! After going through the program, you'll realize it's actually quite simple and you'll notice things in your life just improving and transforming right before your eyes. You'll notice yourself in a situation that used to drive you nuts and all the sudden you're calm and it's not that big of a deal anymore!
This is why I wrote the program. Because I remember what it's like to be a mother with small children feeling hopeless and hanging on with your fingernails right on the edge of losing it with no easy answers or options in sight. There are simple options I promise!
My hope is that you'll take care of you! Life's too short and the time we have with the people we love is too precious to spend stressed out and agitated or withdrawn.
Take care of you! You deserve a great life!
