How to Heal Anything in Your Life

girl-429380_1920

When something drastic happens in your life, for example an ICU stay, an unexpected diagnosis or a major financial disaster or a relationship crisis, you are reeling and shaken to your core. I know I felt this way last summer when I woke up in ICU and was breathing on a ventilator last summer.  I went through stages of emotions. At first I was euphoric that I was alive. Then I was in disbelief when I was told I may need a heart transplant. Then I felt depressed. Then I felt terrified that I was going to die in my sleep and my children would be motherless.

I processed these emotions over about three days before I decided to take charge of my health and every aspect of my life.  What happened next is a recipe for anyone who finds themselves in a seemingly impossible situation.

First, engage in your spiritual practices. This is the time to pray and/or meditate. Reach out to people and ask for prayer. Connect with other spiritual minded individuals. Thousands of people prayed for me and I prayed on the phone every day with my parents. I also practiced meditation. The group energy of prayer unleashes massive power. Pray for peace of mind, for comfort, for healing, for guidance, for clarity, and for wisdom. One of the biggest benefits of prayer is the realization that you are not alone. You don’t have to shoulder everything. TakeYourBizImage4

Then, decide that you are willing to do and be anything that it will take to not only survive, but thrive. You will research, you will talk to people, you will try things, and you will trust your intuition. Be sure that your research includes searching for cases where people have spontaneously healed from your situation. Otherwise, only researching your illness or situation will likely end up making you sad and depressed even though you will be informed. Find people who have healed and talk with them. Consider options like alternative medicine along with your doctor’s suggestions. Ask questions about everything.

Next, accept what is in the moment. Accept your situation. This was difficult for me because I had never been on medications or been seriously ill in my life. My arteries were in perfect condition. I felt, “Why me? I am too young and health for this.”  When I stopped asking, “why me?” I began to open the path to acceptance. There is peace in acceptance. When you accept, then you can make plans. I told my family that I was doing everything on my bucket list in a year because we weren’t sure that I would have more than that amount of time.

Then, cherish each moment. Spend your time with people you love. Spend it doing what you love. Spend it truly living. Stay away from people who are negative and create more stress.

Ultimately I recommend for you to follow positive mindset principles. My near death experience  was a chance to practice everything I had been talking about for over twenty years and everything I had been teaching in my company for almost nine years. This time I needed  to save my own life. These are the techniques I used.

  • Write powerfully in a journal every day using my happiness technique. I wrote “Thank you for my healing” over and over. I also wrote: “I am healed and my heart is perfect. My lungs are perfect.”
  • Allow and accept all difficult emotions, but let them pass through, don’t give them a home in your body.
  • Rest and eat well.
  • Keep your pets close. My cat slept on my chest over my heart for hours at a time like she knew it was her duty to help heal me.
  • Speak positive words about your life and your biz. I still operated my company just days after I left the hospital. I said things like, “I get to still be here on Earth”.
  • Let go of any conflict and stay away from negative distractions. Step away from the drama.
  • Visualize your body and all aspects of your life working perfectly. I created elaborate visualizations where I saw my heart as healthy and my lungs working perfectly.
  • Consider working with alternative medicine like energy healing, EFT, guided visualization, guided meditation, mindfulness meditation, massage, Hypno-therapy, acupuncture, and/or chiropractic care along with your traditional medical care. (This is not meant to replace any medical advice, but to merely show there are alternate modalities to consider). My dear friend, Crystal Lynn, is an energy healer and she worked with me while I was in the hospital. She told me I was surrounded by angels and that my heart would be find which is the opposite of all medical advice I had received at that point.
  • Avoid upsetting media like the news. I even stayed away from watching any medical shows or crime shows. I chose comedies and beautiful music.
  • Do normal things. 10 Days after I got out of the hospital, I went to a rock concert (I even was wearing a life vest that would shock me if my heart stopped)
  • Move your body when you can. When I was cleared for exercise, I started at 5 to 10 minutes on my treadmill and soon was up to four miles.
  • Expect positive results.
  • Take relaxed inspired action that will help you achieve your results.

Of course, I can’t promise that you will be spontaneously healed, but I know I was healed within three weeks. My echo showed a normal heart. I know of many other people who have been healed not just from illness but from any burden.  Healing is always possible.

The intriguing news  is that all of the principles above, are principles that I have taught over the years to increase success and happiness for my clients. As I developed and used different modalities, little did I know that I would lean on all of these experiences to be a co-creator of my own miraculous healing.  I believe that if I could have such a dramatic experience with healing, that anything is truly possible for anyone. We can all have our miracles, but sometimes a person can get so consumed with fear, worry, stress and tension that it is difficult to break the cycle and concentrate on anything. So, I am willing to work closely with you on creating this focus so you can give yourself the best possibility at healing yourself, your life, and/or your biz.

How to Create a Biz Growth Mindset

Takeyourbizimage3If you are a business owner, you are an entrepreneur because you are constantly in the position to do new things and try new ideas in order to grow your business. Do you think that you have to be a born entrepreneur to think like an entrepreneur? Thinking like an entrepreneur is as simple as thinking and doing something you have never done before. We all have entrepreneurial skills and to truly take your biz to the next level, I suggest you embrace your inner entrepreneur.  Move away from thinking of yourself as self-employed or a free-lancer. Even if you are a solo-preneur, think like an entrepreneur.

What does an entrepreneur do? First they take responsibility for being the best salesperson in the business even if they have a sales team. As the business owner, know your products and services inside and out. Be the most excited about your service or product. You know in your heart, more than anyone else, what your product and service does to make a difference.

Next, an entrepreneur gets comfortable with the unknown and understands there is some unpredictability in business. There will be some ebb and flow.

Create a big vision for your company. What will you be doing in one to five years and beyond. How do you see the business expanding? In your dream world, what would the business become?

Delegate tasks and projects. You cannot do everything yourself. Find all the help and support that you need. Surround yourself with experts. Hire strategically.

Think investment, not spending. Investing is money that goes towards the growth of the company. This could money devoted to training, consulting, staff, product creation, marketing, advertising, etc. Spending is money spent on office supplies, etc. Make sure you are investing in growing the business and not just spending.

Mind the cash flow. When cash is low, your task is to bring in more cash. Get creative. Think about every possible way money could come into the company and be open to all channels of receiving.

Ask for what you want. Ask, Ask, Ask. Few people truly ask for what they want. Practice this every day. Always ask. TakeYourBizImage1

Watch for opportunity. You may hear about a new idea in a casual conversation. You could be doing something unrelated to your business and get inspired. You may meet someone who wants to partner with you or help. You could see something on the news or in an article that sparks a new opportunity for you.

Think possibility. Instead of arguing for limitations, ask, “What is possible? So much can happen when you start thinking like this.

Give generously and make the community better. As an entrepreneur, you are a change maker and thought leader in your business, but you also are part of your community and can make things better. Be generous with all areas of giving. As you give, you also receive. If you feel like your cash flow is low, ask how you can give. Could you give your time or resources to a worthy cause. As you give, notice how things change. Consider the legacy that you are creating? What impact will your company have on future generations?

Practice these ways of thinking and acting and watch your business grow.

In Happiness,

9 Minute Decision Making

businesswoman-904571_1920.png

Most CEO’s make the majority of their decisions in less than 9 minutes. And a few decisions might take an hour, but rarely does the decision making process extend for longer than that time frame.

In my experience working with clients, I notice that sometimes people struggle with decision making. Often this struggle is based in the person concentrating on lack or worrying about losing something. For example thinking, “If I choose this, it means I’ll never get to do this other thing.”  There is also this thing called, “Fear of Failure”. If you have this kind of fear, you worry that if you make the wrong decision you will fail, or be a failure.  Few decisions are in a right or wrong category, though. Most decisions are between two good things. If a decision is between a bad thing and a good thing, that’s a no-brainer, you will of course choose the good thing.

Remember that few decisions are permanent. For example, if you choose a movie and it is a terrible movie, you can stop watching. If you buy the “wrong” car, you can sell it and buy another car. Let’s look at even more permanent decisions like naming a child. You can even change a name, go by a nickname, and sometimes the child changes his or her own name when they grow up. (I am not suggesting that you choose a child’s name in 9 minutes or less, by the way).

If you devote too much time waffling around in the decision making process, very little actually gets done.  Here are some tips to make quicker, better decisions.

First, note the importance of the decision and consider how much time you reasonably feel you need to make the decision.

Decide on a decision deadline (of course you can change this). For example tell yourself, “I am making this decision within the next few minutes.  (or half hour or by tomorrow or by next week).

Review the research or information you have.

Tune into your intuition or gut feeling about the decision. What feels like the right decision? People often report “knowing” their decision, but then spend another several minutes, hours, days or months turning it around in their minds. Have you ever interviewed people for a job and immediately you knew which one you wanted to hire, but then you started going over and over resumes and replaying the interviews in your head, only to go back to your first choice?

I was at a restaurant once speaking to the chef. I was trying to decide between two entrees and asked his advice. He told me he couldn’t give me advice because both dishes were so different. Then he asked which one I was drawn to first, when I told him, he said, “Then that is that right choice for you.” We laughed a bit, and it was a delicious meal.

Consider grouping some decisions automatically in the 9 minute or under category (where you will eat dinner, what movie you will see)

Consider grouping even more decisions in the 9 minute or under category (eg email subject titles, the price of a package, a picture for a facebook ad). I know you are going to say, “But I have to put time into this.” Yes, learn the principles of a good subject line, pricing, a good facebook ad photo, etc. So, then, in practice, you can decide faster.

Everything always has a first version, a version 1.0. No matter how much time you put into the first version, you learn from the first version. You will always be testing and tweaking. If you delay too long at the beginning, you will accomplish less.

Take imperfect action because there is no such thing as perfect action. There will always be something you want to change. The first iphone was very different from today’s version.

If you feel like you made a poor decision or maybe you feel like you made a good decision, but not a great decision, see what you can learn from it and let it go.

The more you practice quicker decision making, the better you get at it. And the bonus is that you will get more done, have more inner peace and more time available.

Happiness is Linked to Your Bottom Line

JoyfulWoman

“I’ll be so happy when….” (fill in the blank). You probably filled in the blank with things like: “I finish school. My home is sold. When I buy my home. When I buy my next car. When I pay off all of my debt. When my business takes off. When I lose weight. When I get healthy” And you may have a few others to add here.

Often, people think happiness is cause and effect, that the circumstances create happiness or take happiness away. In reality, happiness is the beginning. Happiness is right now, not someday. Be happy right now and your goals will come to you. You will have joy in your life and in the moment while your goals are coming to you. There is no waiting for joy or waiting for happiness to happen to you. You can choose to be happy right now.

My lifelong work has been devoted to studying happiness and success. I became interested in this question, “Why are some people happy and others seem to struggle finding and feeling happiness?”

I, occasionally, hear from comments from people like “I don’t have time for happiness, I have bills to pay. Or I just want to be debt free. Or I just need to make it through the work day so I can…” The thought process here is that happiness is a frivolous thing and not important. In reality, happiness is the important thing. When you are happy, everything else in your life flows better.

“Needy” energy repels. Loving, supportive, caring, happy, joyful, confident energy attracts.

Your relationships improve when you are happy. You have an easier time getting people on board with your ideas when you are happy. Happiness attracts. This is how happiness and joy is linked to your financial bottom line. Joy is a very high energy feeling. The best is attracted to the best. When you are feeling great emotionally (happy, joyful), you magnetize greatness to you.

In my work with clients I see examples of this all of the time. When people consciously focus on being happy, their businesses grow. When people get caught up in frustration, growth stagnates.

Have you ever felt like you “desperately” needed a deal to happen? What usually happens when you are in that desperate, needy place? Money stays away. People say no. People don’t buy.

Think about the last time everything seemed to be working smoothly? You may have felt like you had a golden touch. Every business deal worked out. Money seemed to come from everywhere. Your personal life felt like it was working well.

What was going on for you at that time? You were probably relaxed and happy. Maybe you associate being relaxed and happy because the deals were working, but the truth is more likely that you were happy and relaxed and then the deals and everything else started working out.

If you manage people or have employees as a business owner, their happiness counts too. If you create a happy work environment, people are more successful and productive.

And A recent study by economists at the University of Warwick found that happiness led to a 12% spike in productivity, while unhappy workers proved 10% less productive.

According to research from University College London and London School of Economics professor Jan-Emmanuel De Neve and University of Warwick economics professor Andrew Oswald, happier people tend to make more money.

What can you do right now if you are tense, worried, and/or frustrated? What can you do if it feels like happiness is far away?

Follow these steps to create almost an instantaneous shift.

  1. Make a decision that happiness is important. Say, “I decided happiness is important.”
  2. Choose daily happiness. Say this statement out loud, “I am in the process of being happy.”
  3. Create a daily happiness ritual (Ideas: a morning run. A morning journaling practice. A daily gratitude list. Lighting candles. Listening to music. Dancing. Prayer. Meditation. Other?)
  4. Say thank you more often.
  5. Do more of what you love to do.
  6. Deepen your relationships with people
  7. Realize that you are a powerful creator. You have control over your thoughts. You always have choice. Find your power in your daily choices.

Happiness is so much more than a mood. It is a lifestyle choice that impacts every area of your life. Take a 30 day happiness challenge. Create a happiness ritual and practice it every day for 30 days. Notice what happens.

My Living Your Joy ecourse may help you truly experience more joy and happiness every day. Or book a complimentary 30 minute strategy session.

Learn How to Turn a Crisis into a Triumph

motivational-1177436_1280

We all experience a crisis now and then. The crisis could be relatively small like missing an important appointment or it could be something life threatening such as a near death experience or a serious diagnosis. Approximately 70% of people in the US will experience a more severe crisis in their lifetimes.

How is it that one person is completely wiped out, beaten down, and feeling bitter because of a crisis and another person seems to thrive and grow from a crisis emerging even better than before?

In the news, we hear a lot about PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). This disorder is very debilitating and often takes years for relief, if ever.

What you don’t hear about very often is the opposite, PTG- Post Traumatic Growth; where people experience amazing growth from even the most terrifying crisis. According to the Post Traumatic Growth Research Group at UNC Charlotte, post traumatic growth “is positive change experienced as a result of the struggle with a major life crisis or a traumatic event”.

Doctors Richard G. Tedeschi, Ph.D., and Lawrence Calhoun, Ph.D. stated in their 2004 paper “Posttraumatic Growth: A New Perspective on Psychotraumatology” in Psychiatric Times, “the widespread assumption that trauma will often result in disorder should not be replaced with expectations that growth is an inevitable result. Instead, continuing personal distress and growth often coexist.”

Dr. Viktor Frankl, a Holocaust survivor and noted Austrian psychotherapist, said; “Life holds potential meaning under any conditions, even the most miserable ones.” Viktor Frankl wrote about the importance of the mind and how a person’s thought life created impact on his or her reality.

In my own personal experience of stopping breathing, going into the light and being unconscious for 12 hours in the summer of 2015 only to awaken and find out that a virus had attacked my heart, and I might have to go on the heart transplant list was a shock and crisis for me. I went from not being on any medication in my late forties to looking at the possibility of surviving maybe one to five years.

After I made it through the first few days of being in shock and seriously ill in ICU on a ventilator, I set my sights on how I could heal. I started searching for stories of anyone who spontaneously healed from my experience. Most of the literature was very grim, but I did find a few stories of spontaneous healing. I started to believe I could heal. I also knew I needed to be happy and around loving people.

Within three weeks, my heart returned to normal functioning. However, during that three weeks, I spoke to my parents every day. I felt more love for my family then I ever had. I felt more gentle and peaceful. I felt like I could “see” more clearly. I was determined to live fully and rest deeply.

I was almost as shocked to hear that my heart had returned to normal as I was shocked by getting sick in the first place.

I soon found that my life was better than ever. I appreciated everything more. I lived more in the present moment. I decided to do more things on my bucket list. I often used the question, “What am I waiting for?” My relationships became deeper. I was so happy to wake up each morning. And I realized I could still live the life of my dreams. All of my dreams could still come true. I didn’t need to stop dreaming just because I had to face something big!

If you are experiencing a crisis, you can increase the potential of turning your crisis into post traumatic growth by:

  • Spending more time with people that you love.
  • Deciding what is most important to you in your life- contemplate the deeper meaning of life.
  • Doing what you can to increase your daily joy. (What makes you laugh and smile? Mine were You Tube videos of animals and babies laughing).
  • Staying positive (my cardiologist actually said that to me). I kept a gratitude journal which I have done for many years.
  • Deepening your spiritual connection and practices. ( A daily prayer practice helped me greatly).
  • Taking action steps to reduce the feeling of powerlessness or helplessness.

I took action by doing research on my condition and other people’s healings. I also reached out to  people who had experienced something similar. I did what I could physically do. I looked at laundry and the dishes as a great gift. The first day I could make the bed without feeling breathless and weak felt like a miracle. Eventually, ten days after a nearly died, I went to a rock concert. I walked slow and took the stairs even slower.

A crisis. big or small, doesn’t have to derail you from your joy and success. I do encourage you to be patient and allow yourself to fully feel all emotions that arise. Even with growth, there will be times of disruption. I still get teary-eyed sometime when I think about waking up in the hospital, not knowing where I was, and seeing my husband and son looking both terrified and relieved at the same time and learning that my daughters were in flight on the way to see me.

And even though my heart is on the low/normal side of functioning. I still have to take five medications every day (My hope is that one day I will be med free) and monitor my blood pressure and sodium intake daily. Instead of thinking, “Why me?” I think, “I am so grateful I am here.” I am so grateful I can walk four miles. I am so grateful I can travel. I am so grateful I can run my business. I am so grateful I can watch my son play sports and dance with my husband and shop all day with my friends.”

You can experience challenges in dealing with your crisis and you can experience growth at the same time. Turn your thoughts to:  How great it is that you are still here on this Earth, able to love, able to be, able to make a difference. There are many examples of people who have thrived in spite of a crisis: Nelson Mandela, Malala Yousafzai, Oprah Winfrey, Eric Berry, just to name a few.

Many of my clients have risen from dire circumstances and crisis to be joyful, thriving and successful in life.

You have what it takes to live your daily joy. If you want to know how to ignite that spark within Click Here for more information.

5 Steps and 10 Habits to Make 2016 Great

Cool Text 12 Days _of Joy 155434107789626

Our twelve days of joy drawing prize winner for a $50 Amazon gift certificate is Robyn (check your email- it is there already).

2015 has had some terrific moments and achievements, and 2016 has the potential for you to truly take giants steps forward and achieve the goals you set. But did you know, according to Forbes, only 8% of people achieve their New Year’s resolutions? It is possible that you could be part of the 8%, but chances are that you have set some resolutions or goals – maybe even the same goals – year in and year out without achieving them. Don’t  give up. I have a way to approach the new year that will up the odds of you truly doing what you want to do in 2016.

NewYearsRes

First, take time to celebrate your achievements of 2015. I know you have some and probably some really amazing ones. Lift your champagne or sparkling cider glass and give yourself a toast. Write out a list of your major accomplishments. Cheers to you! Celebrations are important, they increase your energy vibration.

Next, reflect on what did not happen in 2015 for you. What were some of the goals that remained just out of reach? Let all of the emotions surface without beating yourself up. Acknowledge how you feel. Are you angry? sad? frustrated? resigned? exhausted? Let yourself have those feelings.

Then let go of 2015. Light a candle. Take  deep breaths, in through your nose and out through your mouth. Close your eyes. Imagine all the residue from 2015 lifting off you like a mist and floating up into the sky and transforming  into a beautiful light. After giving yourself time to appreciate this image. Blow out your candle. Let go. You are symbolically ready to go move into 2016.

Now it is vision time. Imagine it is Jan 1, 2017. Yes, I said 2017. Reflect back over 2016 on all of your accomplishments. Write them down like they occurred in the past. Example, “It is Jan 1, 2017 and as I look back over 2016, I am amazed and in awe that I…. and I traveled to …., the trip was magnificent. I remember when I first landed at the airport…. ” and so on. When you write  in past tense as if something has already happened, there is more power in it. It creates the feeling of “a sure” thing.

We reminisce all of the time- why not use it to your powerful advantage?

Finally,  commit to taking inspired action steps related to your vision every day.

cooltext155481563055910

Here are some top tips for success and happiness  in 2016.

  • Practice a daily journaling habit  and write about positive things.
  • Be grateful every day- create an appreciation list every day.
  • Meditate/pray every day.
  • Exercise 6 days a week- doing what you love (this can just be moving your body for five or ten minutes).
  • Learn something new every day.
  • Track your progress, write down wins that show you are moving forward.
  • Give generously and receive generously.
  • Play every day. Have fun
  • Love every day- including yourself.
  • Be kind and gentle with yourself and others.

If some of these habits seem overwhelming, remember that willpower is like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger it gets and the easier it gets.  If you start a habit it and practice it for a month, you are highly likely to make it a permanent change. If you practice it for three months, you are almost guaranteed to make a permanent change.

Thank you for all your efforts in 2015 and I am sending you blessings for a spectacular 2016

12 Days of Joy Day 12 Happy New Year

Cool Text 12 Days _of Joy 15543410778962612 Days of Joy Day 12 Happy New Year 2016! (Be sure to comment and have your name entered in the drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card. I am drawing tomorrow).

Happy New Year! My wish for you is to have an absolutely incredible 2016.

Here are some keys to creating a joy filled New Year

  • Mindset, Mindset, Mindset. Your success is 90% mindset and 10% strategy. Most people focus on strategy, but if you shift your mindset to complete belief and an unwavering knowing that your desires, goals, and wishes are yours right now; you have done the majority of the work already. Implementing a few key pieces of strategy is the simple part.
  • Create Your Happiness. You are responsible for your happiness. You were born filled with joy and happiness. It is a natural state instead of an out of reach goals. Happiness comes from withing and success in life is an outflow of your natural state of joy. As you feel more joy, you see more outward success, but you are already happy. So, the outward success is really the result of already being happy. Last night as I gathered for New Years Eve with  two of my favorite couples, we talked about what was most meaningful in 2015, and not one person chose material things even though each couple was very successful. We talked about friendships, family, our children.
  • Ignite Your Passion. Do something every day that you love to do.
  • Declutter/Organize. Open up space in your life. Create an empty shelf or an empty drawer so you can allow prosperity to flow in. A cluttered space creates tension and confusion. Open space opens your channels to receive.
  • Do What is Most Important first. Take action steps that create the highest impact.
  • Work with who you are. If you like to work in spurts of activity, do that. If you prefer slow and steady, do that. If you are a night owl, work on important tasks at night. If you are an early riser, schedule things that require creativity in the morning. When you work with your natural strengths, you create ease and flow.
  • Deepen Your Spirituality.  Every moment you devote to deepening your spiritual connection, you create inner peace and joy.
  • Forgiveness. Release grudges and remember that forgiveness is a gift that you give yourself. You free yourself when you forgive.
  • Prosperity. Prosperity is for you right now. It is a now thing just like joy is a now thing not a someday thing. Start looking at the world with the view, “Everything is always working out for me.”

“You are joy, looking for a way to express. It’s not just that your purpose is joy, it is that you are joy. You are love and joy and freedom and clarity expressing. Energy-frolicking and eager. That’s who you are.” Esther Hicks

12 Days of Joy Day 11 Happy New Years Eve

My day started out amazing because I had a Q and A call with my signature Be the Inspiration Mastermind Group. Every single person in the group was on the call. The questions were brilliant from how to move out of judgement to how to effectively manage saving money while growing a business to how to deal with the feeling that a person “should be” further ahead and more. For almost an hour and half, I  got to be with some of the most compassionate, brilliant, caring, and difference making women I know answering questions and implementing mindset shifting exercises and another thing I loved is the support that these women offer each other.

One thing all of these masterminders had in common is that they all started out with my Optimize program and/or one on one coaching. I have had the chance to be a part of tremendous growth. As I reflect back on 2015 which was filled with my own growth as well as a near death crisis, my greatest professional honor is the work that has happened with this group.

cooltext155481563055910

On this new years eve, I am filled with joy as I review 2015 and I am oh so excited about 2016.

Everything in 2015 didn’t work out perfectly for me (I almost ended up on the heart transplant list before a miraculous healing). There were some goals that didn’t quite happen the way I imagined, but so much of the year was simply wonderful. I published a new book Relax Into Inspired Action. I traveled to the Bahamas again with one of my best friends, I visited one of my clients in LA, I mentored professionals at CBS Studios, I traveled to Minnesota for a long visit with family, and I took my son to the Peyton Manning Passing Academy in Louisiana. I received a miraculous healing after a virus attacked my heart muscle and caused it to fail. I finally got a recent family pic of all of my children together (almost impossible with 6 and some living in different states). I saw Journey in concert (my favorite band) Plus Motley Crue, Styx, Def Leopard and a few other concerts sprinkled in. What I value most about 2015 is my friends and family. Since the day I almost died, I have talked to my parents every day and we pray together. I cherish that. I cherish the conversations with people and the shared joy.

 

A friend said to me, “You must be really happy to put 2015 behind you after the rough year you had.” I blinked for a minute because I wasn’t sure what he was talking about.  I thought my year was great. Then I realized he meant the whole almost dying thing. I don’t look at my life in a way where I would ever say I had a rough year. I may have had a few rough moments, like stopping breathing for several minutes and waking up on a ventilator twelve hours later and not remembering anything from those 12 hours. When I woke up though, I was giddy and euphoric because I was still alive. I knew I had more to do and so much more life to live.

When you review your 2015, be sure to see the good and celebrate what worked, and anything left undone or anything that you wish could be a “do-over”; create that for yourself in 2016. But let go of any feeling bad emotion and allow yourself to feel joy.

I am sending you joy vibes right now.

12 Days of Joy Day 10

Cool Text 12 Days _of Joy 15543410778962612 Days of Joy Day 10- The topic is Goal Setting

It feels good to achieve your goals. It also can feel stressful when you don’t achieve your goals. As New Years Eve and Day are almost here, many people turn their thoughts to 2016 resolutions. As you think about the things you want to change in 2016, you might also start thinking about the things you didn’t do in 2015. It’s easy to get down and it’s easy to forget about what really worked for you. You had some major wins in 2015. I know it. And for those things that didn’t quite work out, you can add them to 2016 if they are still important to you.Let go of any feelings of “should have” or “could have”.

I made up my mind several years ago to not do any resolutions. Instead I create an overall plan and a vision for the year and I have helped hundreds of people through this process. A common area of planning that gets people stuck is deciding on goals. Often people say things like, “When I set a goal, I come in just short of that goal.” or “It seems like I manifest things a day late.”

Work with yourself. Work with who you are. If you really want to bring in $7500 a month in your biz, set your goal for $9000. If your goal is pay your bills on time, move up the due date in your mind by a day or two. If your bills are $5000 per month, build in $5500 per month because something unexpected usually happens each and every month. If you want to quit your job by December 2016 to focus on your business full time, set the goal for August 2016.  Build in cushion. Stop settling for the habit of just getting by.

When I hold complimentary sessions with people, most people say they want to make more money. When I ask how much more money, most people don’t know. They just know they want more than they have right now. This is actually a, “I don’t have enough” thought.  But when you decide on a goal, it becomes strategic. You can get your energy behind it. This is where joy comes into the picture. As you get excited about your plan, you allow your joy to move your plan forward.

New Year’s Day, I am holding a complimentary coaching call, How to Create a Joy Filled 2016.

12 Days of Joy Day 9

12 Days of Joy Day 9 – Prosperity

One of the terrific benefits from increasing joy in your life is that you raise your energy vibration and then manifesting your goals and attracting prosperity becomes easier. Abundance is a natural result of joy. As you feel better and happier, you attract your matching energy vibration to you. Deciding that joy is one of the most important things to focus upon is an amazing way to create a prosperous new year where you live your life your way on your terms. Make the difference you desire in your community, your world. It all starts with joy.

A simple way to quickly tap that joy vibration and turn it into abundance and prosperity is to use your appreciation exercise that we talked about earlier in this series. But let’s add a twist. Write out your appreciation list and include ten or more things that you truly appreciate right now. Feel the appreciation deep in your heart. Then, make a list of ten or more things that you are trying to manifest like you have them right now.

Example of a future appreciation list like I have it now:

Thank you for my completely healed heart.

Thank you for my trip to London.

Thank you for my new clients in my Joy of Business: Relax Into Attracting Clients Workshop

Thank you for my retreat for my mastermind clients.

Thank you for a retreat home in Sedona.

Thank you for inspiring millions of lives right now.

Thank you for all of the help and support I need right now.

When you do this exercise, you bring your feelings into your affirmations which gives them more power.

A step that many people leave out is letting go. After you fully feel the feelings and affirm your future manifestations like they exist right now, then let go of your attachment. I like to say a statement like, “This is so much fun” or “And so it is” or “This or something better” or “All is well”. Then clench your fist hard and then release the muscles. As you release the muscles,  see your goals and dreams being set free to take on a life of their own. This creates a light feeling and keeps you away from desperately wanting something to happen. This whole experience is about allowing and not forcing. Then go about your day feeling and being filled with joy and happiness. Try this exercise today.
