Listening to my body

Yesterday I had an opportunity to practice what I teach.

After teaching a class and taking my daughter to gymnastics class, I was feeling tired and congested.  Yet, I had two more things I had planned to do at night.  I was not sure how I could do it all.  So I did what I teach my students to do: I asked my body if it desired to go out and play.  The answer I received was not what I was looking for.  My body desired to rest and that’s all.  So I chose to listen, and take a nap.

But I did have 2 other meetings to attend-so what to do?  I could have chosen to judge myself for breaking a commitment to my friends, and to myself.  I could have criticized myself for taking on too much.  I could have consumed another cup of coffee and keep going-regardless of how my body felt.  I could have felt bad, that I would miss out on great fun.  I could also have chosen to be in allowance of me, and my body. I could have chosen to honor myself, by following the wisdom of my body.  And I could have been greateful for friends who also care for and honor me.  I chose to be loving and kind to me.

So, I called my friends and they were so sweet about the whole thing.  They just wanted me to feel better.  Then I had tea with honey and lemon to give my immune system a boost.  And after that, I went to bed.

This morning, when I woke up, I was refreshed and ready to face the day.  There was a sense of peace and gratitude.  I am so grateful for listening to and honoring my body, for caring and generous friends, and for supportive family.

So next time you have a choice to make-where or not you want to push it harder or let go, will you be willing to ask a question first?  Will you be willing to ask your body for what it knows and to follow what it asks of you?

What great contribution can your body be to you?

Question of the day

I had an interesting experience today. I was invited to a business networking meeting last night and directions the to the location were not easy to follow (they were confusing). As I drove to the place, I had to drive around the lot a couple of time before finding my destination, which made me a couple of minutes late. As I parked my car, I had some choices to make: 1) judge the person who gave me the directions, 2) judge myself for not leaving enough time to find the place, 3) ask a question. Today I chose option number 3. I asked the question. As I did, the situation lighten up and I went on to have a productive and fun meeting. How does it get any better? And I would like to offer this question to you as a question for the day:
What is right about this (situation) that I am not getting?
You can also modify it and ask “What is right about me that I am not getting?”
Play with it today and notice your own “Aha” moments and I would love to hear about them.


With ease, joy and glory,

What’s new in my world

Things have been shifting and changing in my world so quickly and miraculously.  I could not have imagined in January and I would be where I am now.  And it is still a work in progress 🙂

In May of this year, I became a Certified Hypnotherapist and EFT practitioner.  Woo-hooo!  More tools to add to my tool belt 🙂

Around the same time, I also discovered my love for drawing abstract pictures and for painting.  It has been such joy to explore it 🙂  And some say, I am pretty good.  I just do it for fun!

Then I started playing with my love of photography and discovered one of my no-longer-hidden talents: seeing the essence of the person in front of me and seeing their unique beauty, even when they cannot see it at the moment.  And being able to bring it to the picture.  This gift has blossomed in Costa Rica, during a class I attended in the beginning of August where I have over 10 private photography/energy clearing sessions with amazing people.  It was so much fun and I got paid for it.  I had fun on the job!  How does it get any better than this?!  Talk about the joy of business! (Thank you Gary Douglas and Simone Milasas)

As I continued to explore the possibilities, 2 weeks ago I attended the class called The Symphony of possibilities (SOP)  with Dr. Dain Heer.  Wow!!!!! What a world changer.  What a gift!!!!!! I am so grateful beyond words for Dr. Dain Heer and for all of my amazing and talented classmates.  I have seen such miracles and changes in my life in just 2 short weeks.  During that class, I also created and held my very first “Lights, Camera, Where did you go?” class.  It was so much fun and I loved facilitating people with a camera.  There was so much laughter and transformation in that class, and don’t forget pictures 🙂    During the SOP class, I was also learned to tap into and work with my own energy and the gift/transformation that it can be when I facilitate my clients.  Since coming back from this class, my private sessions have been more potent, more fun and just more of what else is possible.  I continue to ask more questions and create, create, create.

So, as I look to the last few month of 2013, I am excited and alive, happy and full of wonder and possibilities.  I wonder, would you like to come and play in this realm of infinite possibilities and unlimited joy?   Come and join me, or not.  Whatever you choose, I invite you to create YOUR life, a life of JOY, and live of choices that honor YOU.

What contribution can I be to you today?

In gratitude for each in everyone of you!
