In this weeks episode Stephanie reminds us to relax! Easier said than done, we know. Yet essential.
You may be thinking- How can I possibly relax during such challenging times?
Guess what!? You can!
Building on the previous episode - letting go - we can choose to relax when we let go and have faith in the unfolding.
Stephanie shares tips- both big and small - on how to add more time for relaxation into daily life. She also discusses how she engages with technology and social media these days- two areas that cause stress for many of us.
She invites you to slow down, unplug and really listen to this episode. You can even treat it as part of your relaxation time.
Keep up the great work. We got this. Let’s go.
Everyone experiences some level of stress & anxiety. However, when it becomes severe and persistent, or shows up in the form of panic attacks, it does not take long before someone reaches out for help. More and more people are looking for holistic alternatives to the “mainstream treatment” of medication and talk therapy –treatments that work with the body, address the underlying causes, and benefit body, mind and spirit.
Energy healing, yoga and meditation all work directly with the nervous system and the mind to do just that.
Another profound way to manage stress and anxiety is to give yourself an opportunity to disconnect from tech!
When approached with an open mind, energy healing is a highly effective way of making the unconscious conscious --and healing deeply rooted trauma that we cannot always get to in talk therapy. Energy healing sessions allow us to target the root cause of anxiety and panic attacks, heal wounds that we are not consciously aware of, and release core beliefs and experiences stored in the body or the subconscious mind (feeling mind). The techniques used during an energy healing session are designed to switch the nervous system out of “fight –flight-freeze” mode into a state of deep relaxation, allowing for both short-term and long-term relief of stress and anxiety. In addition, what we learn during a session can help us re-align our conscious mind (thinking mind) toward what we want to create.
Yoga & Meditation
The ancient practices of Yoga and Meditation are two more widely practiced alternatives to “mainstream” treatments for panic attacks, anxiety and stress. They teach us how to interact with the nervous system through breath and awareness, so that over time we can soothe and strengthen the nervous system. They also work with emotions, mental images, thoughts, and relationships, seeing them all as part of an integrated whole. Controlling the body and breath while opening the mind to allow and accept whatever arises sends messages of steadiness and balance to the emotions and nervous system, even as normally disturbing or triggering images may arise, for example. This neutral reaction allows the time and space needed to process or let the image pass through.
Disconnect from Tech
Breaking up is hard to do, yet sometimes it is what we must do to keep calm! Last week I disconnected from email and social media. What happened was remarkable. I felt instantly calmer and was able to re-connect to myself. I did not realize how much of my energy and attention was getting drained by the noise of the world. Even “good” noise is still noise and we need to manage it. While you may not be able to disconnect for an entire week, setting up boundaries about how much time you are on tech (including television) is vital to stay sane. Easy ways to do this daily are no tech when eating, shutting your phone off at night when sleeping, giving yourself at least 5-10minutes in the morning when waking up, and another 5-10 minutes at night before going to sleep to breathe and name what you are grateful for. We really must tune out of tech in order to tune into ourselves. If you can take a week off from tech, do it! It is a wonderful practice of letting go. Over time, we learn that we are not really in control of anything but our choices. We realize the importance of choosing habits that make us feel good.

In this weeks episode of Mind the Gap Stephanie reminds us both the energy — and results we desire happen as a result of our ability to let go.
She explains how letting go (Step 8 and the last step in the process of manifestation, episode 58) isn’t about being apathetic or indifferent. Quite the opposite.
Letting go is about having faith and belief. It's about consistently working to build this faith and belief.
When we follow the steps of manifestation and then let go - we ALLOW the universe to give us what we want OR something BETTER. Reread that. Or something better. When all is said and done, you gotta let go.
When we micromanage or control the outcomes, which many of us do by forcing and resisting, we actually close off infinite possibilities that may be even better than what we are asking for. Reread that.
Stephanie shares her experience of letting go as she was transitioning from the corporate world to owning her own wellness business. She never would have imagined all the amazing things that have happened as a result of her letting go of specific outcomes.
Stephanie reminds us that letting go isn’t easy— yet it’s the only way to experience freedom and truly get what we say we want, OR BETTER.
You deserve to be happy. You deserve to experience everything your mind can imagine and your heart can desire.
You gotta let go! Let’s go.

In this week's episode of Mind the Gap, Stephanie wants to inspire you to kick off 2021 HAPPY.
Pictured above is Stephanie's great Aunt Rose at 95! She passed in August 2020 at 98.
Her legacy of being happy, enjoying life... all things she taught Stephanie inspired her to re-release this podcast.
We are all going to die.
Time is the only commodity we don't get back.
You deserve to be happy.
In this episode Stephanie explores what it means to choose happiness, and how to actually do it while facing real life "challenges and obstacles" that arise.
She also discusses how our mental conditioning (negative thoughts) often create unhappiness by keeping us in resistance to what is thereby leaving us feeling stuck and dis-empowered.
Life is short. Choose happy, be happy! Let's Go.
What do YOU want?
Are YOU making choices that bring you happiness, peace, and fulfillment?
Do you know what YOU want? Maybe you aren't clear...
Or maybe you have been allowing the 2 biggest obstacles people face -- FEAR & NEGATIVITY to hold you back from getting the results you want.
I designed this personal development & empowerment coaching program to help you achieve the results YOU want once and for all.
So, what is it YOU desire? What have you been saying you want for years now and still haven't gotten the results?
Better Relationships? Improved Health? New Career Path? Navigating Transitions? Taking Control of Your Finances? Peace? Happiness? Fulfillment? Purpose & Meaning? Spiritual Growth?
Maybe you aren't really sure what you want!!! That's okay too. We will cover that.
