Happy New Year! And hold on tight!

2018 is here! Are you excited? Curious? Nervous?

Of course, each new year can be a time during which we embark on new things, reassess what we’ve done in the past or just feel like we’ve wiped our slate clean. But as we go into each year, we may feel like we’re carrying bunch of baggage along with us – old thoughts, beliefs and so much more that we may have outgrown.

I’d like to help you release some of these old patterns that are no longer a match for you as well as help you shift how you’re looking at life and give you some new tools to help you move forward.

Essential oils are the BOMB!

Back in April, my friend, Tina, came to visit and teach me about using doTERRA oils and why she felt they were so amazing. And it was a bit of an excuse to pay for her trip here, too… Although, I have to admit that I was a bit shocked at how much my view about essential oils during her visit!

After playing with them for myself, beginning to use them with my clients and seeing/feeling some pretty huge changes with the energy, it became pretty clear that it was important to share this with everyone. Rather than extoll the virtues of why I believe doTERRA is such a great company (you can read about that on their site for sure!), I thought I’d share with you my favorite oils – and why I love them!

Grounding & Connecting

When our brains are going a mile a minute, racing in every direction, we can feel crazed and overloaded. Ultimately, it’s just your ego trying to get your attention focused on your thoughts and help you avoid your emotions. But by grounding and connecting yourself, you get your focus from your brain and you can allow yourself to FEEL your emotions so that they can be released… Continue reading

Letting go of emotions using TV and movies

Holy cats, the energies are high right now! Everyone has SO much coming to the surface and it can be incredibly uncomfortable…

But what is really going on?

You may or may not realize this, but when we have emotions come up and we can deal with those emotions in a few different ways. We can choose to be stoic and stuff all of the craziness. We can puke them up all over everyone while blaming others for how we feel. Or we can work toward gracefully feeling our emotions so that they can be released….. Continue reading

More on Journaling

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted about journaling so I thought I’d touch base on it again….

Did any of you try out my last Journaling Prompts? (If you haven’t seen them, you’ll find them at the end of my previous journaling post.) If so, did you learn anything about yourself?

For myself, I find that journaling is currently pretty sporadic – sort of like this blog is right now – and yet, when I take the time, I find it incredibly helpful. I can untangle the truth from the garbage and begin to find the points of growth inside my mess… Continue reading

Meditating… (Wait! Don’t leave! I swear this will be fun!)

Here’s the second thing I will do to help me clear my mind… But trust me, “clearing my mind” was NOT what it did at first…. Meditation.

Okay, I know some of you may be thinking, “Wait. What? Meditating sitting saying ‘Om’ for 30 minutes doesn’t sound at all like fun! And I don’t have the time! I don’t even care about study after study after study saying it’s helpful. I don’t have time.” Continue reading

Journaling – taking out the garbage

I thought I’d share a few things that I use as tools when I’m off my center. But that I mean, in a huge reaction: angry, sad, scared or any combination of those. Feeling judgmental, frustrated, lost or unsure. I hope that some of the things that I use regularly will help you work through some of your frustrations! Continue reading
