Reiki Master

Saturday, 3 November, 2007

A perfect weekend of fun, learning and attunement.  If you want to learn from the best visit Sharon Carrington at Solent Reiki.  She is arranging a Spiritual trip to Nepal next year (17th – 30th November).  One of the many things Sharon taught us was Psychic Healing which reminds me of a combination of Clean Language, NLP and Reiki all rolled into one – it’s incredibly effective for clearing blocks – but not for the feint hearted!  Thank you Sharon!


Blood, Sweat and Tears and Triumph Over Procrastination

Tuesday, 25 September, 2007

Maria's blindI successfully used a drill today!!! I put up Maria’s blind after 1 whole year of procrastination.  What an achievement for me – it sounds ridiculous but this is a task I found very daunting particularly as i hate using the drill.  But I’ve done it now and what a relief it is – to both of us.

Why Procrastinate?

I his book Do it Now: How to Stop Procrastinating,William Knaus talks about two reasons for procrastination:

1) Self Doubters (often perfectionists)

2) Discomfort Dodgers (this was me on this occassion)

It’s good for me to stay in touch with my procrastination so that I can better help my clients.

What’s next on my list of energy sappers?  My bedroom ceiling needs painting and oh, that old cookie – THE GARDEN!!!!

Monday, 17 September, 2007

Antwone Fisher Film

The true story of Antwone Fisher a black american boy who survived physical and sexual abuse at the hands of his foster family.  It’s a moving film based in a Navy Camp.  It stars Derek Luke who plays Antwone Fisher as a young man and  Denzel Washington as the Navy Psychiatrist who helps him unravel the reasons for his agressive attitude towards his peers.

For a very opposing view of this film, have a look at this BBC review.


Letting Go of Your Clutter

Monday, 9 October, 2006

Sometimes we know that we have too much stuff that we don’t really want. Sometimes we find it hard to let go. This is common.

It might come in handy one day
I t was expensive
I feel guilty
I don’t know what to do with it
it might be worth something

Here are some reasons why letting go can be rewarding:

I can make space for new things, physical and emotional
I can live in the moment
it will be refreshing
it will give me a sense of freedom/release

Things are not just things
We attach value to items and so the things we decide to keep say a lot about ourselves.

Look around you. What are your things saying about your values?
Do you have lots of books because you value learning?
Do you have lots of gadgets because you value technology and fun?
Do you have lots of tools because you are creative?

As we change over time often we are left with ‘stuff’ that no longer represents what we value. This is when ‘letting go’ is important because the things that we are hanging on to no longer belong to the here and now and can hinder us.

How to let go? A Very Exciting Exercise
This is a fascinating and rewarding exercise which really gets to the bottom of things. It’s very simple and requires you to keep going to the end. This is crucial.

Take an item that you are finding it hard to let go of:

Ask the following question: What could happen if I let go of this?

Answer and then ask: And what could happen then?

Repeat this question 5-7 times and see what happens. You will find it very illuminating.

I did it this morning and am sharing my findings here with you:

Large CD Collection I hardly listen to

What could happen if I let go of this?
I wouldn’t have them any more

1. And what could happen next?
I wouldn’t be able to listen to that music ever again

2. And what could happen next?
I could download them off the internet

3. And what could happen next?
I would listen to them whenver I wanted

4. And what could happen next?
I probably wouldn’t listen to them much more than I do now

5. And what could happen next?
I’d realize that I don’t really listen to music very much. I like to think that I do but the truth is I don’t. I choose to do other things and when I do listen to music it’s either on the radio or the odd favourite cd.

6. And what could happen next?
Resolution:
Keep the odd favourite cd and pass the rest on!

If you would like to win my Be Clutter Free Workbook  let me know your experience of this exercise. Remember the learning comes from pursuing the question. Keep going. The questions can penetrate your layers of reasoning and emotions until letting go becomes obvious and easy!


Energy Exchange – Bartering For What You Want

Monday, 25 September, 2006

Money is just a form of energy like any other. I am really into bartering where I exchange my services for other services or items.  I call it my Energy Exchange System.

On my website at the moment I have the following desires that I am happy to swap for Clutter Clearing Coaching:

  • Feng Shui Advice
    Coaching CD’s and books
    IT consultanting
    a lap-top
    a holiday in Italy
    gardening services

And on that list was Website Design. Until that is a wonderful woman, Maddy Saint, offered her design skills for my Clutter Clearing Services.  Lucky me!  I have plans to create a Super Highway for Attraction.  This will be a site that gathers the best people, business, services, newsletters, articles and teachers in the field of attraction.

Is there anything that you would like to offer in exchange for some excellent coaching? Have a look at my site: www.beclutterfree.co.uk


Who Am I?

Monday, 18 September, 2006

This is the key question.  Who Am I?

It’s a question most people don’t ponder after the age of about 20.  Yet the answer to this question is the key to our happiness.

If you know who you are, what makes you tick and what stops you ticking then you can move towards creating the life you want.

What are your key statement/words.  The things that identify you.

Here are some of mine:

freedom/choices/independence
learning/challenge/new/expanding/growing/illumination
knowing/understanding
fun/laughter/lightness
peace/harmony/tranquility/congruence
teaching/connecting people/
spirituality/flow
closeness/connection/love
challenge/achievement/rewards

Are you honouring who you are today, now?


Gratitude

Tuesday, 2 May, 2006

One of the Laws of Attraction relates to being grateful for what we already have.

I decided at the weekend that I'm going to use this blog to really focus on what I am grateful for and salute the people who have helped me on my wonderful journey into coaching and business.

In our course, Attraction Marketing, Annie Meachem from Trellis Coaching has asked us to find three things everyday to be grateful for.

Here are my three:

I am grateful:

 1) to Annie for combining practical marketing advice with the principles of Attraction and welcoming me to the course

2) for discovering that a blog can be a great manifestation tool!

3) for having an amazing relationship with all my children

What are you grateful for?
