Yo! We Going Retro!!!!

Posted by on Aug 14, 2017

This past week, I slipped into an old pattern that I thought I had overcome and paid the price. Several of my clients also slipped backward this week. It was like The Universe was sending lessons, a final reminder to not look back and to continue to move forward no matter how comfortable the old ways may have been in the past, they are now NOT working! And, then I looked at the calendar and guess what happened yesterday?! Mercury went retro! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are in another retrograde, but you may have already been feeling the pre-phases of it like us. The pre-shadow began two weeks ago. I’ve been enjoying taking out more time to take care of myself and enjoy my family and friends. Then, last week, my husband was away, and I used this as an excuse to fall back into my old pattern and overbook myself. I was exhausted, had no time to work out or tidy my apt. My back and neck seized up, and I got really short tempered with my well-meaning brother on the phone one night. My body and temper were telling me, “Enough of this already, I just don’t want to live this way anymore! Don’t go backward!”...

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...

A Special Invitation to Take Some Time Out for You! Like I did when I was a kid, I am beginning to get super excited and count the weeks to my next vacation!

It’s the only place where I feel hugged the entire time I am there and have wound up making amazing friends I feel I will have for life! It’s more than a vacation!!! It’s a Soulfulfilling Experience that just makes me happy!!! Click here to find out more about the magic of Soul Camp! Join us at Soul Camp East or West, I’ll be at both if you want to take some time to connect with yourself and to make some Soul centered connections;) So much love and joy!...

Bam! I Was Hit By The Boomerang Effect!

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...

The Decadent Gift I Gave Myself

Today is my birthday! And to celebrate it, I want to share a story with you that I hope will inspire you to live your passion!   Over the winter my husband and I got into this Netflix series called The Chef’s Table.   This series is incredibly inspiring, as it gets into the head and heart of pure genius, the small number of chefs who have received three Michelin Stars.   These are the Mozart’s of cooking. One might think these chefs mad, as they are driven by their soul’s passion for food and the all-encompassing pursuit of perfection. They live and breathe their art, spending all their time sourcing the best ingredients and working tirelessly to create new cooking methods or dishes in the kitchen.   I find their passion inspiringly intoxicating. One episode that actually made me giddy was one about Grant Achatz, and his restaurant, Alinea in Chicago.   His story is nothing short of inspiring and his food, what I would call, multi- sensory art.   After Grant was diagnosed with a chef’s worst nightmare, cancer of the mouth, he was told by the first doctor that he would need to remove his tongue. He was ready to die. That is like telling a prima...

I want to celebrate something!

YOU!!!!!!! You are most likely a great friend, having compassion and doing your best to cheer your friends up when something goes wrong, right? You most likely try your best to treat your family with kindness and consideration (OK, most of the time, LOL) You are a caring person, maybe even inspiring. Happy to celebrate the achievements and accomplishments of others, but… What about yourself???? Summer is here, and it’s time to recognize and to celebrate YOU—all of your accomplishments, your personal and professional growth, and everything you love about your life! While the spiritual/emotional capacity of Spring is the power of growth, Summer holds the power of maturity.  In summer, the buds of spring bloom into full flowers and now can share their pollen to make more flowers. Recognizing and celebrating all you have accomplished is the way you expand your capacity, inner abundance and self-sufficiency. The same way a good summer harvest can supply food for the winter months, celebrating your achievements gives you the confidence to connect with others and the hope and faith to carry you through all of the ups and downs of success. Let’s take an inventory of all your good stuff, so you have a good supply for Winter!!!! Hit reply RIGHT...
