Selfish or Selfless? What’s your motivation?

Last night my friend was very upset. One of her staff members had called in sick for the next morning. She herself had a very busy day of meetings and an overwhelming backlog of work to complete. It was close to midnight and she had exhausted all her possible options to fill the shift. She told me she was going to have to go into work for 7am to fill the busy part of the shift herself and her final meeting would be at 6pm. She would have to put in a 12 hour day right after having to work through her weekend due to throwing her staff a holiday party and having to attend a day long training session on her usual days off. She was holding back tears; exhausted.
My friend is the hardest working person I know. While I have admired her tenacity at work for years, I have also seen the emotional and physical toll it takes on her. 
I began to walk the fine line a best friend in this situation has to walk. Being a sympathetic ear while trying to get her to see the situation from a less emotional p…

Resistance Busting Techniques

Once I imagined it, no other seemed to spark joy in me.

A few months ago, inspired by an Instagram picture, I decided I would like to begin collecting a few minimalistic style gold rings. I had a few specifications immediately: they must be high quality, they can’t be too expensive and they must spark joy in me. After purchasing a couple plain gold stacking rings I was ready to invest in a more substantial piece. After searching the internet, markets and a few jewelry stores I began to piece together exactly what this ring should look like through continuously finding what I did not want. I was data collecting but did not yet realize I was also creating resistance. Instead of enjoying the process of figuring out exactly what my new ring will be, I was beginning to grow frustrated. And once I was able to imagine the ring clearly, no other ring seemed to spark any joy in me. My frustration grew.

Frustration is at a much lower vibrational level than the joy I expected to feel when I finall…

Your Body as Mind or You as Mind?

Where are you putting your energy? 

Take two minutes right now.  Close your eyes.  Breathe comfortably.  Don’t try to think or focus on anything. 

Where did your mind go? 
How long can you manage to not think about what your annoying coworker said to you yesterday? Or the C you got on that paper you thought you aced last week?
The type of thoughts your mind was pulling to your attention is an indication of what emotions your body is addicted to. That’s right. Your body can become addicted to emotions. When you have certain thoughts or stressors in your life, chemicals are released into your body. If these thoughts or stressors happen on a consistent basis, your body can become addicted to these chemicals. And like any other kind of addiction, your body starts to crave the feelings and emotions that trigger the chemicals so it can get its fix. 
Were your thoughts about anxious situations? Feelings of lack? Anger? Sadness? Whatever the theme was is your bodies emotional addiction.
Now think abou…

The NEW New Years Resolution Part 2

Now, that you have your goals down on paper, we are going to start calling them to us! 


Step One: We are going to begin with changing your brain waves to the coherent Alpha or Theta waves. There are different ways to accomplish this. Personally I have found Binaural beats, and breathing exercises very effective. The goal is to enter a relaxed trancelike state. If your the gadget type, you can purchase Muse: The Brain Sensing Headband , which is suppose to monitor your brain waves through a head piece to help keep your meditative state in the optimal range. I haven’t tried it out myself but if enough of you are interested I will give it a test drive! Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried it out yourself or would like to see me review it! Another option is to download Dr. Joe Dispenza’s guided meditation from his website  .This meditation focuses on bringing your attention and awareness to the space around individual parts of your body and then ending with your attention on the …
