Back to Reality- How to Support Yourself as We Transition From Summer Into Fall

Posted by on Sep 7, 2017

You are back to life; back to reality. Remember that song by Soul II Soul??? “Back to life, back to reality, back to the here and now yeah Show me how, decide what you want from me, tell me maybe I could be there for you.” What if this was your life talking to you??? What if you could bring some Summer into your normal life’s reality? This Summer you got to have more fun, go on vacation, see more of family and friends, treat yourself to ice cream and to enjoy being outside in nature. In The Chinese System, Summer is the time to reap what you have sowed and to enjoy the harvest. You worked hard all year, so you could celebrate your success and take some time off. And, now it’s time to “get back to work.” There is a lot to do before the end of the year. Remember all your resolutions and goals, yikes!!!!! Ugh!!! How will you get it done? Bring up anxiety? And, it’s getting darker earlier. What a freakin buzz kill!!!! But, it doesn’t have to be! You can bring some of that Summer fun into your real life. Don’t just roll back into your old patterns, when you have this...

Holy Allergies! How to Better Control the 4 Factors that Affect Your Health, Energy and and Well Being

Posted by on Aug 3, 2017

I was so tired a week ago. It was super humid in NY, and I felt totally wiped out, and the cough I had from my pollen allergy was activated again!!!! Ugh!  I thought I had beat it. I had been taking my supplements, and it had gotten better, virtually disappeared, so what happened? And, why are some of my clients suffering from allergies and others, not at all? Some of it is predisposition, and some of it is the cumulation of many different stress factors. See, what I didn’t tell you is that I moved apartments the weekend before. We moved to an apt with a better lay out and view in our building, a great move, but a move non-the-less. Despite the fact that we hired movers,  it was complete with lots of bending over, lifting things, inhaling dust, eating fast food and the emotional stress of feeling unsettled and not knowing where anything was for a few days. Allergies, just like viruses, tend to affect you more If your body is already taxed by unperceived stressors. You just get more watery eyes or an itchy throat like me, or if you were exposed to a virus, a cold if your body’s resistance is down. And, your...

Bam! I Was Hit By The Boomerang Effect!

Posted by on Jul 17, 2017

I have been so relaxed, then these waves of anxiety got me last week accompanied by really dramatic and unrealistic fears that did not make sense. It was so strange. I was perplexed. Then, I found a letter I had written to myself last summer at Soul Camp. Each year, they have you write a letter to yourself and share some wisdom you gained there and don’t want to forget. My letter was urging me to take the time to receive the goodnesses in life more and to do more of the things that fill me up, like the yoga, massages and connecting with quality friends that I soooo enjoyed doing at Soul Camp. I was touched to tears reading this because I have been following those directives and carving out space to take better care of myself, that is why I think I felt this crazy anxiety! Bam! Boomerang Effect! It was like my central nervous system’s knee jerk reaction, saying, “Wait! Are you sure it’s totally safe to relax and to enjoy yourself so much? Shouldn’t you be watching to make sure the other shoe doesn’t drop?” Boy do subconscious patterns die hard! So I did an energy session (I do practice what I preach), and I...

Calm Before You Carry On

Posted by on Jun 8, 2017

Back from my vacation in Italy and noticing, as my week progressed, my calm vacation attitude was being challenged. Nothing bad or stressful had happened. I just had lots to do, managing my client schedule plus three other projects. In our busy lives with so much to keep track of and to manage, your central nervous system can get overwhelmed. And in busy cities, like New York, your central nervous system is already being bombarded with noise bouncing off the metal buildings, electromagnetic frequencies from cell towers and people in your space all the time. Just the normal everyday stimuli can be stressful and coupled with any extra pressure, downright overwhelming. The 30-second exercise in my blog has been helping me calm my central nervous system and return to a state of relaxation. It’s helped me return to calm so that I can carry on with more ease and grace;) Cheers to peace 😉...

Short on Time? How to Instantly Create More ;)

Tis a busy season for a lot of you with graduations, end of school year events, weddings, prepping summer homes and getting ready for your own vacations. Find yourself revved into a stress stage just pre-planning everything you need to do? Putting too much pressure on yourself to get too much done in too little time? Feeling afraid you won’t have enough time? I created this super quick and easy Tapping for Time exercise to help calm both you and me down when we have lengthy to-do lists with impending time pressures. It’s helped me get more done in less time! While time is finite, we can expand our experience of it. Anxiety and worry have a tendency to make everything more difficult. When you are stressed your mental capacity is hindered because your primal response is to send energy and resources to your limbs to power your fight or flight. Tapping these meridian points from The Chinese Acupuncture System helps your body calm down. Since there probably isn’t a lion, tiger or bear chasing you, it would be best to calm your body’s innate response, so you can send blood and oxygen back to your brain, improve your cognitive function, think more clearly, and solve problems faster. The more...
