Goals and Resolutions

January First3 easy steps to help fulfill your resolutions and reach your goals in 2015

Your greatest responsibility is to yourself. When you take care of you, you will be available to step into your possibilities.

Goals and Resolutions

Goals, objectives, desires, intentions, directions: what word or words are you using to get to where you want to be? These are the words we hear a lot this time of the year. All of those terms revolving around resolutions about business, relationships, health and physical fitness. We get on the band wagon, state our resolutions, and commit to them. Then, how many times have you discovered when you’re in the midst of the process of fulfilling your resolutions that they just don’t seem attainable?

We often get so caught up in trying to reach the end result that we sometimes forget about this BIG piece of the picture — you have to be consciously taking care of YOU! Your greatest responsibility is to yourself. When you take care of YOU, you will be available to step into all of the possibilities that are out there in the world for you.

I have found in years past that I can get all excited about the possibilities of my projects. If I get overwhelmed by the list that just keeps on growing with all of the steps that have to take place to get to the desired end result, I end up unfocused which results in procrastinating. So, what do I do? And what do I see others doing to accomplish their goals?

Step 1: Take Time To Reflect

The number one step is to set aside time each day to just be, to be quiet, and to be reflective. Many of my clients and students have found that doing a simple energy balancing “routine” helps the mind quiet down, the body to relax and the breath be expansive. The “routine” that most find the easiest to do and to remember to do is the Daily Clean Your House Flow. Of course, there are other ways and methods. Find one that works for you and just do it!

Step 2: Listen to Your Body

Listen to your body and allow it to tell you what’s happening. That will be possible if your body is in a state of balance and harmony. Thus, doing your Daily Flow will help you be able to get the messages that your body wants to give you. To get the messages you have to be able to hear them which requires listening. Again, be aware of what you’re going to ask your body to do and then do some quick energy balancing tips to remind your body to be in flow. For example, prior to and during the time you’re sitting at the computer, simply cup your right hand over your left shoulder and sit on your left hand with your palm up. Then switch your hands. That simple movement will remind your body to let go, to be in correct posture, and to actually do what you want it to do without going into reaction.

Step 3: Clarity and Focus

This is another awareness step. This one is all about clarity and focus. When you can get yourself into that space and stay there, you’ll be more productive and you’ll increase your chances of accomplishing your goals and objectives. THAT is what being in balance allows us to do! For this step, I suggest this simple movement. Using your right hand, cup the back of the skull so your fingertips are on the left side. At the same time, cup your forehead with your left hand so your fingertips are on the right side. It wouldn’t hurt to switch your hands and repeat!

I wish for you an easy and effortless 2015, one that is productive and allows you to fulfill your resolutions and reach your goals. And as part of that, I’m also wishing you a very healthy and happy body!

Water and Energy – It's all the same!


The water is a-flowing! Well, we were wishing for rain – and we got it!
I knew it was going to be a big storm and I prepped for it. One of the big chores was to fill sandbags and place them in strategic locations with the hope that my garden paths didn’t get totally rutted out as the water came down the hillside.
Now you know that I consistently talk about balancing the energy in our bodies so the pathways are open and flowing. When we accomplish this, it’s all about correcting the movement of the energy so the rivers are flowing easily. When we do our daily energy balancing, we are literally re-patterning and reprograming our energy system so our bodies are ready for what we’re going to ask them to do and better prepared for whatever might come at them.
In this particular instance, my goal was to do the very same thing – use the sandbags to help the flow of water go where I wanted it to go so the garden paths wouldn’t be drastically impacted. Well, best laid plans – it sort of worked! The rain came down so hard at times during the night that I fully expected the garden to be full of new rivers gouged out by the downpour. My paths were definitely not perfect this morning, but they could have been a whole lot worse. My work to correct the impact is going to be a lot less than it might have been. I’ll need a load of gravel but it should be easy to take care of the project.
Moral of the story – be prepared! Take care of yourself, whether it be your body or your property, and you’ll have fewer big projects that get created. The rest of the lesson – do your energy balancing before you ask your body to do any activity. Because I did mine before filling the sandbags and moving them around, my body didn’t go into reaction. And because I did my Daily Clean Your House Flow this morning, I was okay to be out there shoveling gravel and getting the pools of water to let go and flow.
My next suggestion is to stay dry and warm! Wishing you a healthy and happy holiday season!!

What Is On Your List?

I’m not talking about Santa Claus coming to town, making his list OR you figuring out your holiday shopping list! The list I want to discuss is “what pieces and parts of you are talking?” Hopefully, every piece and part of you is “happy and nice” but IF something has been trying to get your attention, are you even aware of it? More often than not, we are so involved in our state of doing and being engrossed in the step-by-step needs of the day, that we’re not aware when our body isn’t in a state of easy balance — when there’s a germ bug that’s ready to latch on, when there’s a muscle that’s tight and ready to create aches, when the stress of the day is becoming overwhelming to the physical and emotional body, when sleep hasn’t been quite as rejuvenating as you need it to be.  The list can go on, and on…like an endless string of holiday lights with multiple bulbs lighting up out of sync with the rest.

Getting to that place of being consciously aware, (which comes from energetic balance), can be an easy, effortless practice. You can put balance and health in your life in just a few minutes a day. When you commit to a daily practice like the Daily Clean Your House Flow, you give a gift to yourself that is  revitalizing, calming, and balancing. Another energy flow that can boost your immune system is the Source of Life. Both of these flows are part of my Energy Balancing Care Guide.

No matter what you choose to do, give yourself the gift of self-care and be a partner with your body! That is how YOU can really BE in touch, know what your body is up to and be able to determine if your body wants some extra special attention. The key: live in a state of balance so your body doesn’t create big projects that you have to deal with later. You’ll be ahead of the game and have a body that is ready to do everything you want it to do. And you won’t have anything to “cry or pout about!”

Peace on Earth and in Your Body

Here’s an easy to-do energy tip that will give you lots of breath and lots of energy, plus clarity and calming, all in one fell swoop.

  1. Left hand: cup back of your head with fingers on right base of your skull
  2. Right hand:cup forehead with fingers on the left side
  3. Right hand: cup sternum directly below the collarbone
  4. Left hand: hold fingers on tummy directly below the naval
  5. Right hand: hold base of spine

So, Santa Claus is coming to town and checking his list! I hope that ALL of your lists are easy and effortless to move through and check off!  Enjoy your holidays, be IN joy, and be in balance! Happy Holidays!!!

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespie 

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list,
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out Who’s naughty and nice.
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

O! You better watch out!
You better not cry.
Better not pout, I’m telling you why.
Santa Claus is coming to town.

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list,
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out Who’s naughty and nice.
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

O! You better watch out!
You better not cry.
Better not pout, I’m telling you why.
Santa Claus is coming to town.
Santa Claus is coming to town.
