The Mind-Body Connection to Conquer Challenges

We all have a physical body, emotional body and mental body and they all influence each other. I’m sure you’ve had the experience where alot of mental stress (mental) makes your irritable (emotional) and exhausted (physical), or when eating too much sugar (physical) and made you feel agitated (emotional) and not thinking straight (mental). There are many examples you can think of where it’s clear that one body is affecting the others. You can use this to your advantage. If one body is feeling down, use the other two bodies to bring it back up. For instance, if you are down-in-the-dumps emotionally, use your physical and mental bodies to bring yourself back up. Instead of sitting glued to your seat in a slumping position, change your physiology!  Stand up, push your chest out and takes deep breaths. Instead of telling yourself how miserable you are, change your thinking!  Tell yourself… Read the rest....

Wisdom for a Happy Life

One of the biggest issues for me over the years has been how to make the mind an ally instead of an enemy. Everyday suffering is largely mental. We obsess and worry. We are haunted by old hurts and anticipate new ones with anxiety. For many people, the same four questions keep cropping up to exacerbate these feelings:         1. "What's wrong with me?"         2. "What's going to happen?"         3. "How will I ever get out of this?"         4. "Where will the money come from?" Making these thoughts go away is extremely difficult. They are persistent and never seem to resolve themselves. The solutions we try to find don't work either. We ignore the nagging questions—a form of denial—or we reassure ourselves that there is nothing actually wrong, which, ironically, only stokes the worry and doubt. Another tactic? We try to offset our anxiety by proving our worth through the pursuit… Read the rest....

Change Your Mind and Keep the Change!

How would you like to find out how your brain is wired so you can change it to suit you and help you accomplish your goals? That’s what submodalities can do for you. They are an amazing and powerful part of how you organize your experience of life. We don’t often notice it, but when we think about something we all have a special way of organizing the thoughts into images (visual), sounds (auditory) and sensations (kinesthetic).  Let me show you what I mean and how you can use this to help yourself in many, many ways. It takes a little bit of work, but it’s really worth it. Right now, think about something you really like to eat. Really conjure it up and write down your the answers to these questions in a column called “Food I Like”. When you see the picture of it in your mind, is… Read the rest....

Energy follows thought

Very simply, this is how it works. Your thoughts trigger your emotions and your emotions determine your experience. Energy follows thought. Don’t take my word for it, try it out. Think happy, positive thoughts and you will feel happy and positive and ready to conquer the world. Think sad, depressing thoughts and it won’t be long before you feel like a wet sock at the bottom of the hamper. And, to take it one step further, your emotions establish your vibration and your vibration is what attracts things to you in life. A thought always precedes an emotion, although most of the time we’re just not aware of it. The stuff that goes on in our head is random and automatic unless we’re deliberately using our intent which, let’s face it, we don’t do that much. And when you think of how much power these thoughts have, it’s no wonder… Read the rest....
