Year End Reflection by Stephanie
Looking to reflect on the year and seed intentions for 2018?
If so, get cozy and carve out some time to do this 3 part year end reflection practice: Connect, Reflect and Redirect...
First, find a place that nurtures you. It could be sitting up in your bed or at a local coffee shop. Put your phones on "DND" = do not disturb. Take 10-20 breaths and center yourself.
Next, sit quietly and reflect on the past year in the key areas of your life such as: health, relationship, career, life purpose, overall well-being.
As it relates to these areas, ask yourself questions such as:
What am I proud of?
What have I learned?
What am I grateful for?
What was challenging for me?
Where are my growth opportunities?
Write down anything and everything that comes to mind, as it comes. No judgment.
Based on your replies above, consider what you desire in 2018 in each of these areas.
Ask yourself questions such as:
What do I want more of?
What do I want to improve and or change?
What do I want to let go of?
What support will I need?
Write down your replies. Choose one area you would like to focus on starting in January.
As the year progresses, revisit your notes and gradually adjust as needed. Keep in mind that sometimes priorities change and that too is part of life...growth. I support you!
Light As A Feather by Stephanie
Have you ever noticed some of the greatest wisdom keepers, peace proponents and those who have endured excruciating circumstances often have an amazing sense of humor? They teach us to be light as a feather...so the winds of change carry us forward with ease rather than keep us stuck :)
Last night at our manifestation meditation I was reminded of this concept---that while we may have lots going on in our life, and in the global community at large, it's vital to find ways to let go, laugh, and lighten up.
More than ever the world needs us to be light... To help with this, I want to share a book I recently finished, Book of Joy by the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu. It was inspiring, enlightening, and a big time reminder to be light as a feather! I went from tears to laughter and everything in between. In truth, the words in this gift of a book brought me back to one of the teachings from Patanjali's 8 limbs of yoga that I aspire to experience, "a peace that passeth all understanding...bliss". I highly suggest reading this book. It now has a permanent place on my night table.

Finding Our Way, by Stephanie
In the next few weeks, many of us will experience "transitions" as we head back to school, back to work, back to life…back to "reality".
In addition to this time of transition and change, many of us are feeling the heightened energy around us. It's real. For some, it's really hard to ignore and/or overcome.
During these times of transition and heightened energy sometimes we lose our way. We may be riding the roller coaster of feelings: depressed, overwhelmed, tired, confused, afraid...anything but relaxed!
How do we Find Our Way?
By returning to emotional balance...equanimity.
As I talk about in Chapter Two of my book Reclaiming JOY, the emotional roller coaster is not sustainable and keeps us stuck. We react and often cause more turmoil.
This simple practice, called BRFWA, brings us back to a relaxed state where our emotions are in balance.
From this place of emotional balance or equanimity, we are able to ride the emotional wave without drowning in it. In equanimity we find our way back to peace and clarity. Once clear, we are able to take action that keeps us on the path of peace.
Breathe: As a wave of emotion comes over you, slow down your breath. Allow your breath to flow freely in and out.
Relax: As you slow down your breath, your mind and body will begin to relax. Soften your muscles, let go of mental and physical tension.
Feel: As you relax, you are able to soften into what you are feeling. Stay open to the sensations and emotions moving through you in this moment.
Watch: While feeling, you watch your experience closely, neither grasping what is pleasant nor pushing away what is painful.
Allow: As you watch, you allow the process to unfold. You accept yourself and your experience exactly as it is, dropping the need to change it in any way.
BRWFA is the practice of being present. Being present is what we learn during meditation.
Looking for more support? Consider cultivating an on-going meditation practice.
Being Heard by Stephanie
Last week we talked about the importance of energetic balance and
energy healing as part of on-going self-care.
This week the theme of self-care continues as it relates to whether or not we feel we are "being heard".
Why? Quite simply, if we don't feel heard, our needs will go unmet. Over time, this drains us and we may give up asking altogether. When we do this, we invalidate what's important to our well-being.
For those of us who are em-paths, we may not even be asking at all! Perhaps we are so sensitive that we are afraid to ask. Whatever the case, not being heard isn't sustainable or enjoyable. Open, honest, respectful communication - also known as conscious communication is the foundation for all healthy & enjoyable relationships...and for life!
If you're looking to be heard, consider attending my communication workshop next week. You'll learn a model of conscious communication to help you get your message across, and get what you want, without all the drama both in personal and professional relationships. Details here.

Yet so many of us were not taught skills on how to engage someone in conversation when the subject matter is emotional or challenging.
In this workshop led by Stephanie you'll learn a model of conscious communication to help you get your message across, and get what you want, without all the drama.

Radical Self Care
Summer is the perfect time to slow down and notice where you need to be "fed".
What needs nourishment, love & attention?
Here's one idea:
Book a massage and request one of our specialty oils... try peppermint for cooling or lavender for relaxation. Massage relaxes muscles, soothe aches and pains, releases energy blocks...rejuvenates body, mind and spirit.
Speaking of Radical Self Care...
