Gung Hey Fat Choi!

Chinese New Year’s Day
I love these traditional tips, and we don’t have wait for Chinese New Year to implement, in fact if you are reading this and are saying to yourself, “Oy! I missed the date!” Erase that thought –
It is never to late to begin anew.. Doing something always feels so much better than doing nothing.

Enjoy these traditional tips for celebrating Chinese New Year’s Day and begin to incorporate the principles you resonate with into your daily life.
I have shared my thoughts below each tip, I would love to hear your ideas for each.

1.The first words we speak should be sweet and filled with love to insure each day will be such.
We can do this every morning, begin with our first thoughts before we even open our eyes..

2.The first thing we eat should be sweet, (yes ok to brush our teeth first) to ensure we will have only sweetness filling up all days of the New Year.
We can also approach this from a nourishment point of view, be sure we take care of ourselves with a healthy breakfast to begin the day filled with energy and sustainable vitality.

3.Wear new clothes; include something red, whether it is seen or unseen – it is still auspicious!
Red is an auspicious color, associated with the element fire, our passion, our inspiration, our recognition. As we connect to this energy we are confident, express from our hearts, we exude excitement, so having this element as a part of us from something we are wearing, to something in our wallet or purse, whenever we connect to this red power color, we FEEL It!

4.As all the preparation has been completed, there are no chores to be done on New Year’s Day to ensure we will not be burdened with hard work this year. We will prosper smooth and easy.
We should choose one day each week to embrace enjoying the day without the distraction of chores or burdens, and plan do what makes us feel good. If we cannot find a full day, begin with putting aside some “me time” even just for a few hours. Reflect on all that is full and joyful, planting the seeds to cultivate an infinite garden of love, peace and joy.

Sheep? Ram? Goat?

Today is Chinese New Year.. The question I am asked it the year of goat, sheep or ram?

Depending on your culture, country or form that is followed any one of these is correct.
From my perspective, The most important part of this is that each Chinese animal represents an archetype, understanding the nature paired with the elemental aspect is the heart of the information. The archetype of the sheep brings their nature of pleasing, generous and love of being in a circle of friends.. combined with the “tree element” new beginnings and emphasis on family relationships bring an opportunity for families to reunite, spending time together and cultivate love together. There will be a strong sense of humanitarianism throughout the world with the emphasis on ending suffering for all. A perfect year for creativity to flourish, look for new trends in art and fashion… embrace the energy of new beginnings!

Our Front door is our face to the world.
Do you find it welcoming not only to your guests, but to you?
Do you use it?
How easily does it open?
In many cases our front door is a metaphor for how we are moving along in our life journey.
Create a front door that represents you ~ how you are feeling during this holiday season or better yet – how you want to feel.
Add some color, sparkle and light to create a joyous welcoming experience.

Embrace All Which You Can Become

“When I Let go of what I am I become what I might be..” ~ Lao Tzu
Can You?


Getting to the Part of the Matter, Partnering with your Subconscious

My journey for healing has brought me to places I have never imagined, taught me things I had no idea would be so integral in my life. I think back to where I was a few years ago and notice where I am today, excited about where I may be going next.

My journey began with Reiki, Universal Energy, learning the method of moving energy through my body, allowing me to be in the moment, one moment at a time. Next stop: Feng Shui, connecting to the energy of my environment and noticing the impact on my body, from the inside out. Learning how we can create the experience we choose in our space, allowing our subconscious to connect to the thoughts, the feelings we desire, understanding the messages our subconscious is sending us based on the experience, the patterns we create.

Moving on to dowsing, collecting information by connecting energetically to the environment, to people, using specific method and intention.  Learning about changing our relationship to thoughts and feelings, learning it is possible to change patterns, whether lifelong or new.

All of these modalities creating my method, to partner with the subconscious.  Developing my guided clearing meditation sessions, I find I incorporate all of these tools, providing simple methods all can use to begin opening their awareness. When I refer to how Feng Shui can help us change our patterns, I say, “you can set your space and then forget it, because your subconscious will get the message before you are even consciously aware.” How cool is that! Connecting directly to your subconscious – yes, we have a direct line! But sometimes we need some extra support to help let go of old patterns that are creating behaviors we choose to change; it is helpful when we can go directly to the inception of that pattern. Next stop: Parts Therapy, simply stated this is a method of hypnosis that speaks to the part of the person that is sustaining a behavior they would like to change. We are made up of many many parts, each part has a job it that it does for us. There is a part that makes us happy, a part that makes us sad, a part that helps us learn, a part that motivates us, a part that makes us curious, and so on, and so on. Our subconscious does not decide to do something because it is right or wrong, it only follows direction based on patterns that have been created. Sometimes there is a behavior created when we have a traumatic or  impactful experience, the subconscious shows up to see what job it can do serve us. It may express in ways that do not always serve us well for long-term; such as keeping us from driving on a highway after an accident.  When we consciously decide we want to change a pattern, a habit, a behavior, a part of ourselves, Parts Therapy is the perfect method to get us there.  We can give that “part” new directions, new tasks to do to replace the job it is currently doing. Imagine having a direct line to your subconscious to support your desired changes. The beauty of this method is the person receiving the parts therapy is in control of the process. The client chooses the specific “part” they would like to change, the client decides the new “jobs” they would like to assign to this “part” to replace the current job, the therapist is there to guide. This form of therapy is very successful for creating change in behaviors: clearing phobias such as driving, flying, elevators and public speaking or performance enhancement for sports, test taking, and changing habits such as eating behaviors, smoking cessation, nail biting, and releasing anxieties, to name a few.  If there is a part that seeks desired to change, including enhancements to the quality of life such as healthy life styles, focus and clarity, this is the method. The results can be seen in a relatively short amount of time, depending on the issue.

If you find that you are interested to know if Parts Therapy can help you become partners with your subconscious, I would love to hear from you.

In the meantime, as I always advise, create your fabulous firsts: the first thing you see when you wake in the morning, the first thing you see when you enter your home, the first thing you see sitting at your desk or sitting in your favorite chair should be things that create the feelings that you desire. The perfect way to get started, partnering with your subconscious.

Stretch Like A Cat

Have you ever had one of those days when you seem to lose time, such as getting in your car and then ending up at your destination, not even aware of how you got there?

We usually do not notice we are running on auto-pilot until something wakes us up.
We want to embrace all of our experiences, be present, so that we are available to embrace all opportunities before us.

What are we to do?

We can mindfully choose to redirect our attention on a regular basis, by becoming aware of our body, noticing how it feels. We will then be more aware when our shoulders seem to be moving up into our ears or when our jaw begins to clench.  

Here are a few tips:

-Set your intention for your day, before you get out of bed – Stretch like a cat ~ take a few deep breaths, smile and connect with your intention.

-Notice how your body feels, set a parameter for noticing how it feels when you are relaxed, focused and clear, so you can redirect your attention once you notice a physical change.

-Take at least two deep breaths every hour, or after you complete a task, a series of phone calls or if you notice your body tensing  –  focus on 2 breaths and just feel it.

-If you are sitting for long periods of time, get up and stretch like a cat every hour or so, and march in place for 20 steps swinging your arms, if possible.

-Drink lots of fresh pure water, this will keep you hydrated and nudge you to get up every so often.
