Can you feel it?!!

April 15, 2014

Are you feeling the energy from our latest new moon and lunar eclipse? It is really intense!

My own physical body is really taking a hit. I have felt it building for about the last week or so. If I’m feeling it, I know I can’t be the only one!

Some of the symptoms you might be experiencing include: an overall anxiousness; a tightness or heaviness in your chest; a sensation that you can’t get enough air into your lungs; difficulty focusing or concentrating; the urge to just get up and move because you can’t sit still; feeling like you’re being bombarded with a lot of information or opportunities; or a lot of energy or momentum in your life or business, as if you’re about to be shot out of canon but not quite knowing where you’re going to land! It’s all a little unsettling!

Here are some tips to help you manage your energy through this time:

  1. BREATHE! By that I mean be very conscious of your breath. Check in with yourself periodically with brief intermissions to breathe in deeply for three or more breaths. Notice if you feel the tension release as you do that. If you still notice some residual tension, repeat!
  2. Hydrate. Flood your body with extra fluids right now to support it in adapting to the magnetic pull we are all feeling.
  3. Get moving! Walk, jog, stretch or do some yoga – anything to move the energy in your body to support it.
  4. Honor yourself with some quiet time either through meditation or just listening to music or staring out into the horizon. Your body and spirit need time to just be still. As little as 15 minutes can have a huge benefit.
  5. Do something that’s out of your norm; something that is either nurturing or creative. Take a timeout to do something that allows you to feel more connected and grounded, whatever that is for you.

Need some extra support? If you’re in the San Diego area, I am opening up my calendar with some additional appointment times now through Friday. As a little incentive, I’m offering a special rate of only $55 now through Friday. That’s a 21% savings off my normal rate!

Click here to book your session now.

Be sure and “like” my Facebook page, listed below, to stay up to date on all my tips and updates.

Also, please comment below and let me know what you’re doing to support yourself. I love to hear from you.

With good energy,

Debra

The Power of Images

January 22, 2014

The power of images is undeniable. A photo can immediately transport you back to a place and time in the past and flood your emotions as if it just happened.

In the same way, images can be potent in manifesting what you want to create for yourself, especially if those images evoke an emotional response every time you look at them.

Visualization is an incredible tool, but for some of us, being able to “see” a picture of something in our Mind’s eye can be difficult. Some of us are just more visual than others.

That’s when a tool, like a Vision Board, can be useful in tapping into that vision and emotion.

This will be my third year in making use of a Vision Board and I have to tell you, I am hooked!

Not only are they fun to make, but they are so inspiring, and, so powerful!

Vision Board 2013

Vision Board 2013

In reviewing my board for 2013, the areas that I connected with the most, those that had the most emotion and energy behind them, are those that have had the greatest shift.

There were a number of things that had huge intentions behind them:

  • To facilitate change in others
  • To meditate and connect with my spirit regularly
  • To be calm and centered at my core; and,
  • To launch my Chakra Energy Diagnostics Program

All of these areas have had huge gains and shifts. My Chakra Diagnostics Program has become my signature program and has proven to be transformational for so many of my clients. That is linked to my desire to facilitate change. But I first had to have a daily practice of self-care and being energetically balanced myself.

Do you see how it’s all tied together?

There are three reasons I believe this Vision Board was so much more transformational than the year before:

  1. I used the Feng Shui principles in laying out the board. If you’ve had any exposure to Feng Shui, you understand the energy or “Chi” behind it and may have experienced shifts in your own life as a result if you applied it to your home environment.
  2. I was conscious of capturing images that spoke to me on an emotional level so that every time I looked at the board I had an emotional response to it, time and time again.
  3. I created a plan to make it happen! I took action. The areas where I took even a little action had the biggest gains.

When I look at the first board I did, there’s very little on it that really connects with me. I can see how much I was trying to make myself be something I wasn’t, or at least, follow a path that didn’t really resonate with me at my core.

That was the year I placed a lot of focus on being a jewelry designer. I had just attended (by invitation) the American Music Awards Gift Show, shook hands with big name stars and had my day in Hollywood. And while some people dream of opportunities like that, it wasn’t who I was. I wanted to help change people’s lives, not just make them feel prettier or make it big in Hollywood.

The Vision Board I created last year was so different. That one was like an extension of my spirit. It felt really good.

If you’re in the San Diego, CA area, this Saturday you have an opportunity to create your own Vision Board in a fun, creative way, surrounded by other like-minded souls at my “Your Best Year Yet! – a Vision Board Workshop“!

We’ll use art as the foundation, plus your own creativity, and then add Feng Shui, your inspiration and a dash of the energies of the Chinese New Year.

Craft Your Powerful New Year Mantras for 2014!

“Res-o-lu-tion: noun  The ability of a device to show an image clearly and with a lot of detail”

 

I don’t like New Year’s resolutions. I quit making them years ago.

For one thing, if stuff shows up throughout the year that I don’t like, I “resolve” right then and there to put support systems in place to change it. I don’t wait until New Year’s.

Second, for me they carry with them the energy of something I don’t really want to do! I’m not one to do anything I don’t want to. I mean let’s face it, if you really wanted to do it, wouldn’t you have already done it? Why would you need a New Year’s resolution to make you do it?

“But Debra”, I can hear you say, “I really DO want to ______ (you fill in the blank)!”

Great! Let’s acknowledge one thing, resolutions are usually about creating some sort of shift or change in your life (and they are separate and apart from goals). Real change or transformation comes from being able to energetically connect with what you want to create. The way we do that, is through our emotions.

Create a vision of what you want to create that you can get really emotionally excited about!

When you read a resolution that says “I’m going to lose 20 pounds by March.” how does it make you feel? Did you notice heaviness in the pit of your stomach?

What if instead it said “I am on my way to losing 20 pounds and already I have more energy and my pants are getting looser!”?

Notice the difference? WOW! I don’t even have a desire to lose 20 pounds and it still feels really good!

That is an example of a mantra or an affirmation. It is a tool you can use to create any kind of change you want for yourself. And if you use visualization in combination with reading or reciting the mantra on a daily basis, you have a powerful tool to actually, finally, lose that 20 pounds.

One other thing I want to point out, notice how I used the words “I am on my way to losing…” vs. “I have lost…”. That is an example of what Abraham-Hicks refers to as a “bridge” and it is an important element.

It’s a little trick we play with our brain. Since we haven’t lost the weight yet, to state it as if we have can create some resistance; you know, that little voice in your head that says “No you haven’t!”

So in summary, here are the main important elements:

  1. Make them specific but emotionally exciting
  2. Use a bridge
  3. Visualize, I mean really see and feel how your life is going to be different
  4. Write them down and put them where you can see them daily (mine are on the bathroom mirror, my calendar and my journal)
  5. Recite them daily to yourself out loud or silently but with emotion!

Still feeling a little stuck? Do you need some help in creating your own mantras? 

I’d be happy to brainstorm with you! Drop me an email with a draft of yours or schedule a complimentary “Craft Your Powerful New Year Mantra” phone session (absolutely no strings attached) and I’ll guide you through the process of creating something powerful and unstoppable!

I’ve set aside only a handful of time slots on Monday and a few nights next week. So don’t hesitate if this resonates with you.

To schedule your complimentary phone session using my online calendar, go here to find the available time slots. Look for “Craft Your Powerful New Year Mantras”. You’ll see it listed under “Special Event Promotions”.

Talk to me!  What works for you in creating real change?  How do you motivate yourself to follow through and stay the course?

I love hearing from you!

Please post your thoughts below to share with others.  Together, we can support one another in manifesting more abundance and clarity in our lives.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

P1090799-revised2

A client of mine, Fatima, came in to see me on Saturday. I asked her to update me on what had happened since we first met a week ago. “I got two new clients!” she exclaimed. “It’s only been a week! And I didn’t even DO anything! I can’t wait to see what comes next!”

I’m always telling prospective clients that when you’re truly ready, transformation can come in a hurry. But it’s always nice to hear it echoed out of the mouths of my clients!

I was having another conversation with a woman this week and she was telling me how she has tried this, that and the other thing and nothing has really “helped me create the kind of change I’m looking for”.

Now, there’s the possibility that she’s not really ready to create change (and there are all sorts of reasons, but that’s another conversation), but let’s assume for a moment that she is.

There are many programs and coaching out there that help you put in systems and structures or new ways of operating or thinking, and while many of them are good in and of themselves (and even necessary), if you don’t deal with the underlying blockage or healing that needs to take place first, it’s always going to feel like something’s missing, and you aren’t going to create real transformation.

I relate it to taking an aspirin for chronic pain. You might get some initial relief, but you’re not really dealing with what is at the root cause of the pain. You’re coping with or managing the pain temporarily, but you’re not really removing the cause of the pain.

In the same way, when things aren’t going well in your personal or professional life, you can apply new techniques or systems or approaches, and while you may see some improvement, you probably are not going to create real transformation. That requires going inward.

The take away that I want you to get here is this, if you are like the woman from the other day who has tried “this, that and the other thing”, and you’re not creating the kind of change you really are seeking, ask yourself “Where am I getting stuck? What have I not been willing to look at?” The answers to those questions can yield BIG change. If you don’t know the answers to those questions, that’s where I come in! Let me guide you in your quest for understanding and connection to yourself. Let me help you get out of your own way! That is what I am here to do.

The other thing I want you to really get from Fatima’s story is that it doesn’t have to be hard and it doesn’t have to take a lot of time. That is the beauty of energy work! It happens with ease. And, when you are truly ready, it can happen quickly!

Together, we can uncover where you are getting stuck, help you remove the energy blockages and give you a set of real-life tools that you can use in-the-moment to shift yourself out of any situation.

A good starting point is my Complimentary Chakra Energy Diagnostics session, which can be done via phone, Skype or in person.

Even if you didn’t do any other work with me, this session alone is so powerful, it has the potential to totally set you on a whole new course of true life fulfillment!

With good energy,

Reflection

October 23, 2013

Picture this. You’ve just completed a large project, a new product launch, a new system roll-out, etc. Or perhaps it was your wedding or a family reunion. It’s over. It was wonderful. But wait, what is that you’re feeling?

I had just such an event about 10 days ago with my first annual Transform & Thrive! retreat for women. Here are a couple of the photos.

It was a great success! The workshops by all the presenters were inspirational, we had an awesome group of women who interacted well with one another, the food was delicious and the weather in Cardiff-by-the-Sea that day was gorgeous. To top it all off, the feedback and reviews from the women included: “It was an awesome conference. Looking forward to the next one.” “Shifted my fearful behavior thinking, a start to a better path.” “What an amazing experience!” “What an eye-opening experience on money!” “Wonderful day – you really took care of us.”

The only suggestions were more time for each speaker and a larger space.

So what’s the problem? How come I felt so empty the next day? “I should be happy!” I kept telling myself. “You should be celebrating!” came the other voice in my head. “You have no right to feel what you’re feeling.” “I know. I know. I should be happy. What is wrong with me?” Then came the guilt.

Are you with me? Can you relate?

Just what is that about? It can be quite hard to connect with at first, and the guilt doesn’t help! All those emotions that don’t make sense; that don’t seem to fit with reality.

Part of it is adrenaline. There’s a lot of excitement, anxiousness, and build-up leading up to the event — all of which create a hormonal soup in your physical body. After the event, the hormones plummet, leaving you with, what is that, is that depression I feel? Hmmmm. “I can’t be depressed! Not after all that!”

Another part of it can be how you process what just occurred. Did you plan for some time to really digest it in full, outside of the emotions and commotion of it all? Or did you just expect you’d pick up your life and move on? And, did you allow yourself the space and time to really celebrate? To relish the experience?

I haven’t had children, so please pardon my comparison here, but I liken it to the birth of a child. First, you have the conception (the original idea), then you have the gestation period (the planning) and then there’s the delivery. Then you have what comes afterwards. They don’t call it postpartum for nothing!

For me, I didn’t anticipate when I interpreted at first to be “negative” feelings. I didn’t recognize it as a mild form of depression; coming down off the “high”. The retreat was over a year in the making. That’s a long gestation!

In addition, I didn’t really celebrate. The day following the event, my husband hopped on a plane for a family event that had been planned in advance. We had both thought that I’d relish the time alone, but in fact that added to the letdown I was feeling. Left to my own devices, I spiraled down the path of looking at all the things I needed to do differently next time.

Lastly, when it’s all over, you’re left with what you started with. You don’t have that “big thing” that’s been consuming your thoughts in recent months. Life is back to normal, whatever that is or was. That can feel a little drab as compared to all the months of planning!

So what have I learned?

1) Be prepared to experience some letdown after it’s over and don’t beat yourself up over it! It’s a perfectly normal, hormonal, physical response!

2) Plan for some down time to move through those feelings and to reflect.

3) Celebrate! Plan a way to celebrate what you have accomplished!

4) Surround yourself with supportive family or friends who can reflect back to you the good and keep you grounded. Make sure that in your review process, that you really spend some time to celebrate the things you did that worked very well.

5) Do something to nurture your soul. Read a juicy book, walk on the beach, get a massage or pedicure — whatever it is for you that feels nurturing and allows you to just “be”.

Bottom line, if you know what to expect, and plan for it, it won’t take you by surprise. Then, you can just move through the process with ease. 😉

Now it’s your turn. What has been your experience? How can you relate? What do you do to nurture yourself? I’d love to hear your thoughts!  Please post them below.

In a way, I mourn the arrival of the Fall Equinox because I know that the shorter days are not long behind and I feel so much more alive when the days are long.

I know on a conscious level that it’s all important, those cycles in life that naturally energize you and then slow you down. It’s like we have this internal clock that’s tied to these cycles and we need to either embrace the shift and perhaps allow ourselves to work in a different way or fight against it and try to work at the same energetic pace as we do when the days are longer. I’m not really sure how to work differently. I’m still trying to figure that part out! If you have some ideas, I’d love to hear them!

I suppose it could mean being more conscious and focused in the work we set out to do and then give ourselves the space to end our work day a little earlier than we might when the days are longer. It’s actually surprising to me how much I can get done when I tell myself I have fewer hours to do it. Suddenly, the stuff that I thought was so important falls to the bottom of the list and the more important stuff rises to the top and gets done. That’s pretty powerful!

In my last BLOG I spoke about the deeper meaning of the Fall Equinox: the balance of light and dark, at least for that one day; and, the end of the summer “harvest”.

There are a number of ways you can celebrate this transition, but here are three of my favorites:

1) GRATITUDE. One theme of the “harvest” is gratitude. Seems like a perfect time to get out your gratitude journal (or start one) or simply a piece of paper, and record the top 10 things you’re grateful for.

If life has thrown you some curves lately, you may have to stretch a little on this. It may be as simple as acknowledging the gentleman who held the door open for you at the grocery store and smiled or your dog that greets you at the door every time you come home or that you have a vehicle that gets you to and from work so that you can put food on the table.

If you can, include some lessons learned that will now improve your quality of life. Whatever they are for you, write them down. Expressing gratitude does something chemically in the brain that alters our perception of our life and can raise our spirits. I’ve also found that gratitude breeds more good stuff!

2) SHARE. If you have a roof over your head at night and food in the refrigerator, than perhaps you might want to share with those less fortunate. Invite some friends over for a feast and ask that they each bring a canned food, dry goods or other non-perishable item. Donate the collected bounty to your local food bank or shelter.

3) CLEAR OUT. Clean out and make room for the new. Many trees shed their leaves so that they can focus their energy on building a stronger trunk and reserves for the winter. In the same way, by doing a sort of spring cleaning, you energetically “open up” your home or office, create energy and make room for new opportunities to come forth.

Go through your clothes and take out any that you didn’t wear this summer and donate them. Let’s be honest, if you didn’t wear them this season, you’re probably not going to next year either.

Go through your office and clear out old client files, reference materials and other stuff that’s stagnating and sort it in three piles: 1) toss; 2) keep; and 3) donate. Store the “keep” pile in boxes out of your space. Mark them with a date and make a deal with yourself that you will revisit the box in a year or some other point in time.

This year, I am vowing to honor nature’s ebb and flow. I will embrace it more, at least a little bit!

One way for me to do that is to celebrate on my favorite place – THE BEACH!

No matter where you live on our planet, one thing is for sure, we are all effected by the change in seasons and the cycles of the sun. Most of us think of the autumn or fall equinox as the official end of summer and the approach of fall.

But there are two other historical elements of importance.

First, for centuries it has marked the end of the summer harvest and a time for preparation for the cold and winter ahead. We could extend that to a deeper meaning of thankfulness for the crops just harvested (i.e. lessons learned) and for the food to sustain us through the winter (or the knowledge gained and a time for reflection and integration into our lives).

Second, both the summer and autumn equinoxes are a time of balance, of equal light and dark. In the case of the fall equinox, it’s followed by decreasing amounts of daylight. On the spiritual side, we know that in order for transformation to occur, we must experience death in some form; we say goodbye to old ways of being in order to welcome in shifts and changes.

Spring has always been my favorite season, but I have to say the deeper meaning of the fall equinox is pretty special. Let’s face it, spring is associated with growth and new experiences, and sometimes growth isn’t necessarily a fun or comfortable thing! But to celebrate the growth you’ve just experienced, now that’s a whole other topic. You know, the “Whew, I don’t know how I did it, but I made it!” feeling? Or the, “Wow, I never saw that coming, but now that it’s over and I’m looking back on it, I’m glad it happened.” We’ve all experienced life scenarios that when we’re going through them aren’t a heck of a lot of fun, but once we’re on the other side we can see the relevance of it all. But when you’re deep in the middle of it, it really sucks.

So the fall equinox is your opportunity to celebrate your growth and take advantage of the slower energetic pace of the shorter days to stop and really reflect on what it all means and how you’re going to integrate it into your life.

Our minds are a very powerful tool, for either good or bad!

You know how if you tell yourself not to think about something, you just end up thinking about it more?! If you don’t want to think about something that’s making you uncomfortable, you have to give your brain something else to do! So shift your thoughts to something that makes you feel good!

In the same way, if you’re trying to manifest something new for yourself that your mind is saying isn’t possible (because there’s no evidence or experience for it to draw on for proof of the possibility), you can’t just tell yourself that it’s possible and expect it to work. The head chatter will still be there. Instead, you need to acknowledge to your brain that yes, in the past that may have been the case, but that now you’re creating a new paradigm.

In the book Law of Attraction they use the example of getting a cold during the flu season. Let’s say you usually get the cold or flu every year and this year you want it to be different. Merely saying “I want to remain healthy” is usually not sufficient because your belief or your experience has been different than your desire to remain well.

Abraham suggests using the following process instead to bridge your belief.

You can make statements like:

    “This is usually the time of the year that I get the flu. I don’t want to get the flu this year. I hope I don’t get the flu this year. It seems like everyone gets it. That may be an exaggeration. Everyone doesn’t get the flu. In fact, there have been flu seasons when I didn’t get the flu. I don’t always get the flu.”

Then progress to the following:

    “It’s possible that this flu season could come and go without touching me at all. I like the idea of being healthy! Those past experiences came before I realized that I can control my experience. It isn’t necessary for me to experience the flu this year. It isn’t necessary for me to experience anything that I don’t want.”

Do you get the idea? Acknowledge to your brain that yes, this is how things were, but this is how it could be and gradually progressing to this is how it’s going to be this time. The brain starts to let go because it’s being satisfied that you’re acknowledging what it’s telling you. It’s kind of like having this open dialogue with another part of you, some sort of an alter ego!

If it helps, maybe you can think of having the conversation with the old you vs. the new you. Acknowledge the old you, the way things have been in the past, and paint a picture of the way you want to see it. The old you feels satisfied that it’s being heard and acknowledged and the new you is happy because it’s being heard and acknowledged as well.

Let’s say your business is in a little bit of a slump and you’re trying to manifest more money or clients. The conversation might look like this:

    “I don’t have nearly enough clients. I don’t know how I’m going to pay the bills this month. I acknowledge that I’ve had a couple of bad weeks. I know it seems like my business has slowed, but it doesn’t have to be that way. It hasn’t always been that way. In fact last month I was flooded with new clients. Clients came to me with ease. I was like a magnet. I can see that happening again. Clients are beginning to come from out of nowhere. I’m a magnet for the right clients who need what I have to offer. I repel those who are not ready for me and attract those who are ready and eager to pay for what I have to offer.”

Do you see what we did there? As you do that, it’s important to not only visualize it happening, but imagine what that will feel like, in real time.

Now, going back to our lesson here… the more frequent the thoughts of what you want to manifest, (and the stronger the feelings that go along with it), outweigh your doubts about whether or not it can really happen, the more quickly you will create what you want in your life.

Note that this process does require that you be specific and clear about what you want to manifest, and you have to have strong feelings of what that will feel like. If you can’t imagine what it will feel like since you haven’t been there before, then try to associate a feeling from someone you admire that you believe has acquired what you want to manifest for yourself.

I am hosting a women’s retreat on October 12th here in San Diego called “Transform & Thrive! Your Money. Your Self. Your Life.”, and one of the workshops will allow you to play with this concept in more detail and get feedback. You can get more details on my Events page. Stay tuned for the announcement of enrollment!

A good friend, mentor and colleague of mine, Lynn Scheurell of the Creative Catalyst, once said, and I’m paraphrasing here:

“As an entrepreneur, your business is a reflection of you. If you don’t like what you see happening in your business, look at yourself!”

It’s so true. Whatever’s going on energetically with you personally, impacts your business. If you have issues with the flow of money in your personal life, there’s a good chance the flow of money and/or clients in your business fluctuates as well. If you have difficulty standing up for yourself in your personal life, most likely you have difficulty in expressing to the world what you do and the wonderful services you provide. The former is a Root chakra issue and the latter a symptom of an imbalance in the throat chakra.

BEV’S SURPRISE DISCOVERY

One client of mine, Bev, was surprised to learn how her experience of being a child in the foster care system, and later the death of her daughter, had impacted her business growth. She had unconsciously become guarded and afraid because the closest relationships to her had been ripped from her life. The death of her daughter had also left her feeling that she didn’t have “the right” to be happy, and, she had difficulty seeing her business as a large enterprise, even though it was what she wanted. She was afraid to allow her business to grow and thrive because of her perceived vulnerability. If she played small, the risk was small and the hurt minimized should it not go as she planned.

The only thing was she didn’t really want to play small! Once she realized what paradigm she had created, she started envisioning and communicating her vision to her staff, which almost immediately started manifesting large client contracts which in the past she had shunned and avoided as being “too big”!

Her story is an example of both the Root and brow chakras at work. If we don’t feel grounded (Root), then we don’t feel safe and secure and probably are unwilling to take risks or “live large” or pursue our full potential. It’s not uncommon then for the brow chakra or “third eye”, the chakra that allows us to “see” our potential, our future and possibilities, to shut down as well.

Her story is unique but not unusual. Frequently, I see a cross-correlation between one chakra and another. We’ll be exploring this more in future blog posts.

 

QUESTION:

What do you want to create for yourself in your work or business? We are approaching the Summer Solstice on Friday. These hallmarks in the year are a perfect time to stop and reflect and set new intentions for what we want to create. We also have a full moon on Sunday. The energy of the full moon is waning; it gets smaller in the days following it. So if you want to use that energy, it’s a great time to make a list of the things that you want to release – the habits, the negative thinking, or things you perceive as “lacking” and let them go.

After you’ve written them down, you might want to have a special ceremony where you light a candle and then burn your list in the fireplace; visualizing releasing all of the things that no longer serve you.  See them vaporize like smoke into the air.
