How stress, fear and anxiety rob us of the ability to make good decisions

While the news media is only partly to blame, making a killing of FUDGE (fear, uncertainty, doubt, greed, and envy), they are not the sole culprits. We live in a world where fear, stress, and anxiety are normalised. Each one of us chooses, on some level, to play this game. Or at least, we pretend that we have no other choices.

But, how do we make good decisions from a state of fear, stress and anxiety? In many ways, we’re hampered by tunnel vision, unable to see options broader than the scope of escaping the immediate threats that we perceive. We move towards safety rather than seeing the broader opportunities available to us. Continue reading How stress, fear and anxiety rob us of the ability to make good decisions

Releasing Storage – unburden yourself

releasing storage,lose weight, unburden yourself, release the storage

How many times have you lost weight, only to discover that you have put it all back on again?  Releasing storage from our body is not simply diet & exercise – although those are key! Exercise combats type 2 diabetes better than any medicine invented so far – but do you have what it takes to keep up with a new exercise regime and not fall back into a sedentary lifestyle?

Understanding the relationship between our fat cells, their positive role in our bodies and health, and your habits, beliefs and thought patterns is essential for a healthy life! Our fat cells serve many purposes, not simply holding fat.

Forgiveness: release & letting go

Forgiveness, new life, growth, strength, peace, release, letting go, let go, lesson, Ho'oponopono, I love you, I'm sorry, Please forgive me, thank you

As I learn about forgiveness, I realise the first requires acknowledging the existence of my pain & feelings. They say Dis-Ease comes from Unforgiveness (Louise Hay)We carry around, within our body (emotions that we haven’t allowed to pass through), the pain.

My definition of pain is simply this: Please. Acknowledge. Information. Now.  And until we acknowledge the information – until we name the pain – we cannot forgive!

In my spiritual studies, reading Paul Hasselbeck’s “Point of Power“, I learned “events are simply neutral“.  God (the Universe if you prefer) is not trying to “teach me a lesson”.  In fact, the events, themselves, do not teach me anything.  I, on the other hand, am the one choosing what lesson I learn from any given event or situation.  As Paul says:

I am the point of Power;
I am the one who chooses the lesson I learn.

Playing small? Not any more!

I'm done with playing small, just so that others can feel comfortable, playing small.  I’ve done “poor me”… but I am all done with “poor me”.  I’ve stopped dreaming and striving for great when someone has said: “now you’re scaring me“. But no more. No more playing small.

I stopped studying when others told me that I didn’t need any more degrees to hang on the wall. Then I realised that it wasn’t the certificates on the wall that truly fulfilled me.

I stopped building my business when others told me it was getting too big.

I stopped personal development when “they” told me I should just recognise my limitations.

No more.

I’m done with playing small, just so that others can feel comfortable.
