It’s another podcast coming up to help you make your life better

A little over two weeks from tonight, on Wednesday night (5/14/14), I’ll be appearing from 8-9 pm on the New Normal with Tchipakkan on http://liveparanormal.com/

Had a bad day? A bad week? A bad year? A bad lifetime?

Does it feel like a dark cloud follows you around wherever you go?

Sometimes “bad luck” is just random challenges happening at the wrong time. Sometimes it is caused by external forces or ill wishing, But sometimes ill fortune is a “do it yourself” project, drawn to us by the things we focus on and do.

Come learn how misuse of your conscious mind, the Mind-Body Connection and stinking thinking can screw up your life- and how you can turn that “bad luck” into good vibrations.

Want to catch this interview, call in with your own questions or be part of the live chat happening during every show?

If you just want to listen, you can go to the above site, click the “Listen Live and Chat” listing under the “radio-listen/chat room” heading, and click “LISTEN HERE” next to “the New Normal”.

If you want to chat, you’ll need to go to the top of the home page on the extreme right and click “Join” to set up a personal account ( it’s free but takes a few moments, so you might want to do this in advance)

There are provisions for listeners to phone in with questions, too.

And, if you can’t tune in at that time, Live Paranormal.com archives its shows for your listening at a time convenient to you.

Hope you can join me two weeks from tonight from 8-9 at the New Normal on liveparanormal.com

One of the most immediate issues you’ll have once you’re out of a bad relationship is stress.

Sounds crazy, no? After all, being in the bad relationship was the stressful part and now that you’re out, you should be able to relax, right?

Yes and no.

Being in a bad relationship is stressful, yes, but many times, your survival instincts will kick in while you’re in such a relationship. This is the reaction that lets people swim for miles through shark infested waters after a ship goes down or lift a car off of a loved one.

And survival instincts are not just for literal life or death situations. When you’re in a situation where you feel threatened, whether its physical harm,  or emotional, your adrenalin starts to pump, giving you the energy to fight or to run away, and if you’re in an ongoing stressful situation, you continue in a state of ongoing elevated adrenalin until te situation is resolved or until you finally run out of energy and collapse

and often, if you’ve been in this “fight or flight” level long enough, those elevated levels may continue, even after the threat is gone.

The “fight or flight” syndrome was originally supposed to be a short term solution to help you survive a challenging world- but when it becomes the long term default, it can deplete your immune system, harm your health, affect your ability to make decisions, limit your happiness and in general make it harder for you to have a good life.

And it feels lousy. Let’s not forget about that.

So we don’t want to stay in that state. But, when stress has become a habit, it may not change spontaneously. You may have to teach yourself how to relax and let go of stress.

There’s a lot of good ways to do this.

  • Exercise
  • Positive thinking
  • Meditation
  • Simplification
  • Relaxation exercises

And I’m going to get into some of these in more detail in coming posts.

The basic thing to remember right now is to pay attention to what your body is telling you, and when it starts to feel stressed, that’s time you need to slow down or stop and do something that helps you to feel calmer or happier

More details ahead

*Note- Being in or ending a bad or abusive relationship can leave you with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual damage which you need to deal with. Since this is not a “one size fits all universe”, everybody will have different things they need to heal and recover.

If you need medical treatment, or counselling, or medication, I’d encourage you to get what you need, just as I’d encourage you to try alternative health approaches or self esteem builders. Remember to find what works for you, and then make sure that you do what you need to heal on an ongoing basis.

Take care of yourself- you deserve it.*

Well, whether love or job or any other kind of bad relationship, you were in it… and now you’re out of it…

Thank heavens. Because it’s hard for the healing to begin before you’re off of the battle field.

In a bad relationship, and then out of it.  Things should settle down for themselves, right?

well, probably not.  One of the problems with bad relationships is that, even after you’re out of the line of fire, there will still be things you take away from the bad relationship that can still mess with your life.

Stress. Beliefs. Habits. Fears.  And that’s even if the relationship is totally over and that other person doesn’t keep popping back into your life.

So you’ll need to unlearn a lot of the lessons that bad relationship taught you- and you’ll also need to learn new ways of living that will help you to nurture yourself, heal and move forwards as the captain of your own fate.

and we’ll be looking at more specifics and how to deal with them ahead

I was on a podcast last week and, given that it was the week before Valentine’s Day, we were talking about love and what builds loving relationships

And then we got a caller on who asked “What do you do to learn to love yourself after you’ve gotten out of a bad relationship?”

Wow.

That’s a really important question.

I did what I could to give her some ideas that might help, but there’s only so much that you can do in 20 minutes or so; and that’s a really important skill set that a lot of us need at some point in our lives- so I’m going to do a series on metaphysical and alt health options to start rebuilding her self esteem after ending a bad relationship here.

Hope that you never have to use this info, but if, at some point, you do, I hope that you find something that works for you.

More coming on this soon.

There’s lots of people out there who kinda drift through life.

They’d like to follow their dreams. They’d like to do something that’s exciting, or meaningful, or amazing. They really would.

But somehow, they never get around to it. And time drifts by and by and by, until at last, they get to the point where they decide that they decide that it’s too late to do anything.

And they drift through their lives with a vague feeling of failure and a bad taste in their lives.

But for those of you visiting here, let me tell you three secrets about this whole question of chasing your dreams.

  1. It’s never too late to do something amazing
  2. If you want to get somewhere, it helps to know where you’re going
  3. When you write things down, you’re significantly more likely to actually accomplish them

Simple, right? But these are three gems that can unlock the world of your dreams as opposed to just drifting through life.

We have the gift of a big bright, shiny year ahead of us, and the question now is what you’re gonna make happen with it. Will you drift or will you make your dreams happen?

The time is now- and I’m wishing the greatest of years yet ahead for you

Just remember- It’s never to late to start. Set a goal. And write it down.

Then get out there and make great things happen in your life

Catherine

The month of January was named for the Roman god,  Janus, the god of beginnings, transitions, endings, passages and doors.  He is pictured with two faces, looking forwards towards where he’s going and backwards to where he’s been.

As we stand on the eve of the New Year, looking forwards into January of 2014, we’d do well to follow Janus’ example.

Look back into 2013. What brought you joy? What didn’t work so well? What did you accomplish and what is yet to be done in your life?

Now look forwards into 2014. What do you want to do in this shiny new year? Where will your dreams and your life mission take you, and what are the first steps to take to move in the direction of those dreams?

Look forwards, look backwards, like Janus. Choose what your year will be

and then, have a happy, happy New Year

Peace and Prosperity to us all

Currently really enjoying a book called “The International Bank of Bob” the story of one man’s experiences with KIVA, an organization that arranges micro-loans to help people lift themselves out of poverty around the world.

One thing that he said that struck me is that one problem is getting people to see beyond their immediate situation and the challenges it poses. Not so much encouraging people to have a long range plan (KIVA candidates are good a long range plans) but rather to encourage them to dream big enough.

Now that’s an interesting thought

We’re moving towards the end of  the holiday season and soon we will be in the time of new year’s resolutions and of thinking about what we want to do with the shiny new year ahead.

Are we dreaming big enough, though? Resolutions give us a road map for our life’s journey, and goals can give us something to shoot for, but sometimes its important to make sure that our dreams are big enough. Big dreams make us reach further, try harder, and even if we do not always achieve everything we set out to, big dreams can move us further in the direction of our life’s mission.

So please stop a moment and think

  • What do you want to do with your life?
  • What would you like to accomplish in 2014 as part of that?
  • And, are you dreaming big enough?

Good things are coming…

Hey there.

For a lot of us, it’s the last dash until the holidays with too many good things to be done and not enough time to do them all.

It’s too easy to “shop til you drop”; but in the holiday season, it’s also important to remember to take care of ourselves as well

So, while you’re baking or wrapping or checking things off your life, here’s a little gift for you- a gift of five and a half peaceful minutes. Put down the spoon or the tape or the check list and take a moment to watch and breath and relax

and then do what you need to do to deck them halls and jingle them bells :)

Happy holidays to you from Foresight.

It’s been getting colder hereabouts, and when it gets colder, my knees, which have seen a lot of living, start to ache more and even hurt. Given that my life is lived in motion most parts of the year and especially in the holiday season, painful knees and the associated limp are not what I want to be dealing with, especially when I’ve got people to see, places to go and things to do.

So, anyway, I was limping along on my daily rounds the other day and the pain and the crankiness in my knees got worse and worse until I finally had to stop, sit down and take a break.

And as I was sitting there, waiting for things to get more manageable so I could move on again, I started thinking.

I thought”Hey, I know that affirmations have helped in the past to ease pain for me. Haven’t done that for awhile.”

I thought “Hey, I know  acupressure to relive knee pain and make them stronger. Haven’t done that for awhile.”

I thought “I know Reiki too and that can do wonderful things to help my body heal. Haven’t done that for awhile.”

Well, duh.

I had the tools I needed to support my body and feel better. I knew what I needed to do to take care of myself, and I was so busy that I didn’t do it.

That ever happen to you?

So, I did my affirmations and I did my acupressure and I added in my Reiki, and, when I stood up again, 95% of the pain was gone and I was walking much better.

and there’s the two clues

It’s not enough to know how to do something- if you want to benefit from that knowledge, you have to use it,

and…

in this season of giving to and caring about others, its important to to take care of yourself as well.

So what do you know that you need to do to take care of yourself?
