We all love the newness and excitement of January. It's a time to let go, to start over, to recalibrate, and put in place healthier options for our lives.
We typically focus on the physical body. We tend to think a lot about the types of diets we want to follow or the new physical workout plan we wish to execute. Perhaps we activate a new gym membership, join a yoga studio, or hire a personal trainer or dietician. We become focused on being our best selves!
But we're overlooking a necessary part of being our best - our emotional health!
As we usher in the new year, let's focus on an aspect of you that doesn't just change your physical appearance, but your entire life. Here are 10 easy ways to workout and improve your emotional health.
Giving comes far more natural to most of us than receiving. Typically, receiving isn't always an innate trait. We must develop our capacity to receive.
Why is it important to know how to receive?
Because we can hurt others, not to mention deprive ourselves, if we don't know how to accept and allow!
Are you ready to learn to be more receptive and create more love in the world?
Here are 3 simple ways to do just that:
One reason that we can feel stress when interacting with our parents is that no matter how old we are, we naturally revert back to feeling like a child. We can be a 50-year-old badass, in-charge, successful adult, but when we are in the presence of our parents, we resort to the little child who desires our parents' approval, the little girl who wants to be nurtured, or the little boy that longs to please. How do we retain our adult identities in the presence of our parents?
When you're spending time with your relatives during the holiday season, your energy will naturally drop lower so you can connect and harmonize. You see, a lot of people think that it's the turkey that makes them tired. It ain't the turkey! When we are tired and grumpy, chances are we're vibrating at a lower place than we're used to. What does that all mean? Why does it happen, and more importantly, how can you counteract this? With awareness, a tiny bit of time, and a little kick of caffeine. I'll break it down in simple steps.
I am in deep gratitude for having someone step up and tell me the truth of what was holding me back.
“Your reading/healing was so awe inspiring. Not only were you TOTALLY right, half an hour after I left you my knee stopped hurting and has not hurt since. I have been thinking on what you said and realize I do need to participate in my own direction. I am going to meditate on what I have already thought about since we met and try to form a blueprint, a flexible blueprint for the Universe. My fear of being wrong was holding me back; I see that now. I am in deep gratitude for having someone step up and tell me the truth of what was holding me back. Thank you. Really, thank you.”

The information you gave me was incredibly freeing in order to write the parts that had me stymied as to how I would/could handle it.
“At yesterday’s gathering, I was asked about the reading and others were interested in how impressed I was at the answers that came for me. To me that is what a reading should give – answers – but I must admit I asked for the reading with no preconceived notion of what I needed, wanted or would receive from it. I didn’t even know I had questions that could be addressed in a reading! The information you gave me was incredibly freeing in order to write the parts that had me stymied as to how I would/could handle it. Those stumbling blocks are gone now – and in fact the emotional barb connected has been removed. I find it most amazing – and joyous.”
