A 2.44 Minute Lesson on Compassion Guaranteed to Wow You

 

“Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival.” Dalai Lama

The most exciting thing about each new day is the anticipation of what unexpected goodies might come your way.

We all get very busy with our lives. Lost in deep thought, wrapped up in our to do lists, in a hurry to get from point A to point B, yet there are so many gifts in every single day that we often overlook in our hustle and bustle.

My friend Beverly Johnston wrote this piece on how one day brought her a great gift on the topic of compassion. She recorded it for our local public radio station, WFDD.

Please take 2.44 minutes and listen to this wonderful story. It will open your heart and perhaps open your eyes to some gift your day has in store for you that you might otherwise have missed.

To listen from the WFDD website go here:

Please leave me a comment with your reaction – I’m always interested in what you have to say.

Lose 10 Pounds of Emotional Baggage Fast

Life Coaching with Energy Therapy Breaks Your Past Chains

Would you like to feel 10 pounds lighter? Do you want a quick, easy way to stop carrying around all that past baggage that has built up in your life?

If so then here’s your answer.

By fusing Energy Therapy modalities with Life Coaching techniques a reaction is created that clears away past subconscious programing and baggage so you can move forward with ease.

We are all a product of our past experiences, thoughts and actions. But if you are looking to improve your outcomes then Life Coaching with Energy Therapy is your best bet.

Life Coaching is very different than regular talk therapy because it is focused on where you are and where you want to go rather than on past events. But, what if past events are affecting where you are and where you want to go? That’s why adding Energy Therapy is the answer.

Life Coaching boosted with Energy Therapy modalities can access your subconscious blocks and move aside those things that are holding you back. The real gift is these are things that you can not access in regular conscious therapy or coaching.

So if you’ve ever felt like you’ve hashed and rehashed your past and yet you still have not moved forward to the extent that you’d like then this is your answer.

A good analogy of how your subconscious mind works is the studies done on babies and the visual cliff. Babies who are just crawling are placed on a plexiglass table where one side looks shallow and the other seems to drop off. The parent is on the “deep” side coaxing the baby across.

Psychologists have found out two very important things from this test.

One, that the expressions of the trusted parent directly affects the babies performance. If the parent shows a fear face as the baby starts toward the deep end the baby stops crawling. In like manner, if the parent is smiling and nodding yes, the baby scampers across.

Secondly, psychologists have found that babies who are first crawling do not seem to show an inherent fear of the deep side because they have very little experience with falling. However, babies a few months older, and who have experienced falling, have a much stronger avoidance reaction to the deep end, even when their parent is coaxing them to cross.

This is how your subconscious mind develops. There are negative events that have happened to you that have encoded in your subconscious. These patterns or messages run in your subconscious background in an effort to protect you from harm.

Perhaps they served you when they were formed, but they are no longer the patterns you want running twenty years later. Energy Therapy enables us to go in and turn off those messages and re-encode new messages that are more productive.

So, if you’ve ever felt like that you bump in to an invisible wall when you try to move forward, see what a powerful difference Life Coaching infused with Energy Therapy can do for you.

Here are some of my Life Coaching success stories from other clients. You can also get more information about the power of Energy Therapy at my Life Coaching website.

What’s Your Dream?

There’s an old Nick Nolte movie in which a homeless man goes around asking people “What’s your dream?” Finding your life’s passion is sometimes harder than it would seem. One way I have my clients assess passion level is by the way tasks and ideas make them feel.

Does thinking about taking on a new career path fill you with energy or dread? Do you feel better or worse after spending the weekend with that new person in your life??

Listening to your own body is the quickest way to tap into your intuition. Your senses are full of information that is reliable – you just need to know what you’re listening for and make sure it’s coming from the right place. Often the voice in our head is not our own and the things that seem to be draining us are not even real.

I came across this great blog called Life in Pencil. Anne, one of the blog’s writer’s, wrote an excellent post about this topic. It’s called “Where’s Your Energy?

Please let me know what some of your experiences are with making decisions and finding your passion.

I look forward to hearing about your journey.

Blessings,

Donna

Be Kind: Wisdom From A Child

I had a very nice interaction with a bank customer service representative yesterday. She really went out of her way to help me solve a problem I was having and I walked away really feeling taken care of. So because of that I was focused on kindness and ways we can be kind to one another and I came across this video.

It’s a really cute video from this little girl giving advice about being kind. I thought you might like it. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Kindness can not be overrated. The kinder you are to others the more you blossom. It’s as essential as rain is to a flower.

 

Here’s the video – enjoy!

How to Approach Your Work/Life Situations with B.A.L.A.N.C.E.

Your work/life situation is totally unique but one thing that’s universal is the fact that they often get out of balance. Here is a simple 7 step B.A.L.A.N.C.E. plan for gaining the work/life balance you’re looking for.

1. B – Begin. By deciding to self reflect and observe your life you open up the possibilities for change.

2. A – Asses where you are right now. Really look at where your time and energy goes and asses the priorities you have instituted. Make a note of which actions and priorities make you feel better and which make you feel worse. Also, note which ones are missing.

3. L- Love what is. Many people can not move forward because they are too stuck in judging their situation. They spend all their energy on struggling with it instead of accepting where they are right now and channeling their energy into making new choices.

4. A – Activate new patterns. Once you’ve looked over your activities and priorities and have stopped resisting where you are right now then you have the perfect opportunity to start some new patterns. Maybe you now have a clear idea what you want to say no to. Maybe you are ready to substitute a good feeling activity for one that has been draining you.

5. N – Notice your thoughts. Much of what throws us off balance is mental. Stress is like mud wrestling – there is no way to participate in it and come out clean. Negative thought patterns like worry, overwhelm, anxiety and judgments drain you of the peace and balance you are looking for. These negative thoughts are like stacks of junk mail that build up until they spill over and cover up the good thoughts that make us feel light, happy, and rejuvenated.

6. C – Course correct. As you begin new activities and new thought patterns you will naturally get “off course”. There are only two things you need to do to solve this: fix upon a destination and gently course correct as you go along. Use your emotions as guides to tell you when you are beginning to get off course and then gently correct until you are back into a more positive feeling place.

7. E – Enjoy. You’ve been told a thousand times that life is a journey, not a destination so just enjoy yourself along the way. Know you are going to get off course and that life will bring you unforeseeable detours, but make a conscious choice to enjoy the scenery along the way and then even the time you spend “lost” will be pleasurable.

Your work/life balancing act is unique to your situation. If you would like to create a specialized plan that incorporates a holistic approach please consider getting the assistance of a Whole Life Coach to speed up your progress.

The One Big Secret to Business Success they Don’t Teach in the MBA Program

What’s the one big secret to your business success? Your level of personal happiness.

As an entrepreneur I know that my business is a direct reflection of where I am at any given moment. And as a Holistic life Coach ~ Energy Therapist I know that everything in our experience is vibrational.

We are one holistic energy system. You can not be miserable with your personal life and have a wildly thriving successful business. It is just not possible.

As an example try this exercise. Focus on your left foot. Now pretend that there is a pain in your left foot. Really feel it. Then bring your focus to your right hand. Wave your hand around; have a very happy hand.

Did you notice what happened? You just proved to yourself that the pain in your foot and the happiness in your hand can not occupy the same space. Just as light and dark can not occupy the same space.

We are a culture of pieces and parts. Everyone focuses on treating the symptoms and calls it a solution. In order to have a real solution you must treat the whole system and get to the root cause of the problem.

As a whole life coach who uses energy therapy, I am able to watch people transform their lives and businesses. Because we were able to access their subconscious blocks that have been unwittingly holding them back from their success, we are then able to replace these outdated tapes with ones in alignment with health and happiness.

Personal Transformation – Is Now a Good Time for a Change?

Life Coach in Greensboro

Personal Transformation is cyclical – much like the seasons. Autumn is rapidly approaching but how does this season change affect your personal growth cycle??

I wrote a recent article on this topic for The Art of Wellbeing. It’s titled Is Autumn a Safe Time for Life Transitions? You can read it here:

http://www.artofwellbeing.com/articles/is_autumn_safe.php

One of the best tips for keeping yourself in alignment as we shift seasons is to tap out your corticies. This keeps your left and right brain working together.

Here is a video of John Veltheim, the founder of The BodyTalk System, teaching you how to do this technique.

Here are some other thoughts on Life Changes:

I have a habit of life changes at or near the September Equinox …

The title of this comes from the recently realized fact that I’ve made major job changes in my life on or near the September Equinox (Autumnal in the north/ Vernal in the South) .

My Bird Sanctuary Dream: Changes In the Seasons of Life

But changes in life are not always as welcome. People like things to remain “the way they are”, sometimes, even when “the way they are” is not ideal.

A Road Less Traveled: Life changes.

Life changes, doesn’t it, after you experience a loss?? And I’m talking all loss – – a parent, a friend, a spouse, a child. Let’s get grieving out in the open.

Lifestyle Changes that Promote Stability, Quality of Life …

To live life to the fullest one needs to be physically active, have optimum fitness and be mentally happy too.

Greensboro Life Coaching Client Success Stories

Greensboro, High Point, Winston NCMy Greensboro Life Coaching ~ Energy Therapy practice is nearing its 10th Anniversary and I’m spending some time reflecting on the wonderful people I’ve connected with.

It is such an honor to be able to share someone’s journey with them – whether it’s for a long time or a short time – because I get to access their unique piece of Divinity that resides in all of us.

Life Coaching in Greensboro area

As I was putting together my website some of my clients were kind enough to reveal their experiences of sharing their journey with me. I was so touched that I wanted to share some of them here.

“I feel thankful for Donna because her work has provided me with the missing link that many other approaches lack.”

I believe our health is multi-dimensional, including our physical bodies, our emotions, our mind and thoughts, our spirit or soul, and an energy component.  Most modalities only touch on the body, mind, or heart, but that mystical piece is lost.  My doctor, my therapist, my spiritual advisor are not able to address my whole body.  Donna addresses that mystical piece by addressing my whole self, providing me with something I cannot find anywhere else.

Donna’s intuitive abilities and practical assessments are exceptional.  I have felt great healing in all areas of my life by coming to Donna, and I continue to find her assistance one of my greatest resources.

Gretchen Hill

Greensboro, NC

“At 58 I decided I could age in the conventional way; adding more and more prescriptions for health, or I could try an Energy Therapy approach and live more vitally and happily.”

“At first I thought BodyTalk sessions were a luxury I couldn’t afford. But I quickly saw how practical and effective they were and I now see BodyTalk as the way of the future. I used the sessions before and after total knee replacement to maximize my healing…both my doctor and physical therapists were impressed with my rapid progress.

Working with Donna is easy. Her manner is

relaxed, uplifting, enthusiastic, and caring. She seeks to get a holistic view which will actually take you beyond the limited concern that first brought you to her. You will find many benefits for all areas of your life. 

I often receive little practical things that impact my life dramatically. I have a clearer sense of how I fit into my work and family settings. I’ve gained more confidence and self awareness and feel more empowered and aware of possibilities in this life.”

Bodytalk – An Amazing Therapy

BodyTalk is an energy healing modality that bridges the gap between western medical expertise and ancient eastern healing wisdom to effectively help support the body’s own ability to heal itself.

Some Amazing Benefits of the BodyTalk System

bodytalk system healingThe BodyTalk System is grabing the attention of many people. It is a fusion of Western healing methods that have a proven track record as well as Eastern traditional practices that have withstood the test of time and science.

As an alternative healing method, it promotes holistic wellness in the human body and mind by working with it as a whole system instead of as an isolated set of parts. The healing benefits are all achieved without the aggressiveness of surgury, injections, or drugs.

Your Physical Systems

The BodyTalk System works as either a stand alone therapy or in partnership with other healing modalities. These other healing methods can include any Western type treatments or Eastern treatment forms like yoga and acupuncture. The inclusive and holistic nature of the BodyTalk System acts as a booster when used in conjunction with other healing methods.

For example, if you are on thyroid medicine, the BodyTalk System can align your body with the medicine so it works more effectively. By integrating the medicine into your body’s systems you recieve a greater benefit because your body is not fighting against something it percieves as an intruder.

Many common physical health issues are addressed by this system. A sampling of these physical issues include but aren’t limited to: arthritis, allergies, headaches, fibromyalgia and acute chronic fatigue,  intestinal parasites, reproductive disorders, digestive disorders, organ and endocrine dysfunctions, acute and chronic infections and back and body pain.

Each session treats specific imbalances in the body before moving on to the next health concern so as to avoid body overload.

Your Mental Systems

The BodyTalk System also addresses mental and emotional concerns, such as stress or anxiety and learning and behavioral disorders, such as ADD and ADHD. These are all often a root cause of physical symptoms that manifest as illness the body. It is your body’s way of alerting you to an imbalance in your system as a whole.

Some other of these problems include: depression, emotional problems, and fears and phobias. Although total results are not always instantaneous, after each session some clients feel a overall general sense of well-being.

If you are looking for a modality to expand your personal development in order to make your life better, this healing method will help you. As your sense of well-being in terms of your mental and physical aspects is restored, your sense of self-confidence can be restored as well. You are literally being healed inside and out.

Your Session Information

Every BodyTalk session is unique. BodyTalk practitioners are guided by your own Innate Wisdom to address what’s needed for you at the time. Each session can have a totally different flavor.

whole life coachingSince the healing is energy based many people have fantastic results with phone or long distance sessions. This helps make sessions more convienent in terms of your time and travel. You’ll be amazed at how powerful and noticeable the positive effects of the BodyTalk System are in your life. 

When you have in person sessions, you lie down on a massage table in order to relax your whole body. You will also be asked to take off your shoes, watch and jewelry since metal or magnetic things can impede the flow of the treatment. You will stay fully dressed as it is not necessary to disrobe.

An experienced BodyTalk System practitioner can truly do wonders for the human body and mind. As this is a process of removing your conscious and subconscious blocks, you’ll easily and quickly return to your natural state of health.
