Putting Yourself First for A Change – Exploring A Self-Care Checklist

Change Your Life! Happy figures.Putting Yourself First for A Change

profile of woman in headscarf - looking down - ready for changeAs we know, all cultural training teaches women to take care of their family’s needs as the highest priority and at any cost. As nurturing spirits, we often extend that caring behavior to include everyone but ourselves. The result can be difficulty in “saying no,” setting boundaries and addressing one’s own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs. NOW is the time to change our minds – in a GOOD way.

Among the many classes I teach, I facilitate classes and workshops on Putting Yourself First for a Change topics. They are based on my

“Envision Enhanced Vision”

(Meet Your Self! Topic for November and December 2015)

Astounding Revelation!

Seeing Eye

Seeing Eye

It is shocking to learn that, in people with multiple personality disorders, optometrists found that each “personality” had different vision, and the eyes took on different shapes when each personality took dominance. This indicates that the physical part of our eyes is only one – relatively small – source of how well we see. The rest is happening in the brain/mind/consciousness. Emotional states and things like posture directly impact your vision! So, we’re exploring this topic to learn how to prevent or correct eyesight issues.

Meet Your Self!

If you cannot attend our Meet Your Self! December, 1, 2015 session, you can book me to do it again in another place at another time. Ultimately, I can conduct these seminars on-line, so, if you want to help me experiment with that, call me to discuss it at 540-636-4311, or Read More now. Continue Reading →

Brainwaves & Consciousness Levels

Brainwaves & Consciousness Levels

~ NLP & Hypnotherapy ~

Hello, People! I am posting this video about Brainwaves & Consciousness Levels, which describes different levels of consciousness and different functions of the human brain…as they relate to experiencing NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) and Transpersonal Hypnotherapy techniques for releasing fears, phobias, limiting beliefs, poor self-esteem, and more.

Topics Under Brainwaves & Consciousness Levels Include

Levels of Consciousness include: Super Conscious Mind; Collective Unconscious Mind; Sub Conscious Mind and Conscious Mind.

Levels of Brain include; reptilian, limbic, and neo-cortex.

Brainwaves, Levels of Consciousness, Telepathy

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)

Dandelion seeds blowing in wind into blue sky and sun raysGuess what I just learned!    NLP!

As usual, I am scattering my seeds in many directions (like a good dandelion).  I just got my certificate of completion, from Dr. Yvonne (Oswald)  in a class on Neuro-Linguistic Programming, better known as NLP. This is an amazing technique which helps people overcome “stuck” issues (like emotional or psychological issues, fears and limiting beliefs) in a fraction of the time it would take using other techniques and without having to relive every single, tortuous moment of what caused the reaction to the causal event.

Are You: Walking a Tightrope? Feeling Insecure? Confused?

Wondering How To Overcome Obstacles? Looking For New Direction? walking on a tight rope that gets tangled and shaped as a question mark

You can go to a psychiatrist for twenty years, or you can take an NLP “break-through” session for 5 hours, and I’d bet you a double fudge chocolate ice cream cone that the NLP will work far better and much faster!

In order to get my certification as an NLP professional, I have to complete 30 hours of NLP practice and pass an exam. If you live near me, I’d love for you to help me by scheduling a practice session with me. My (beautiful, British, now Canadian, world-renowned) instructor assured us that people will benefit greatly, even though students are not yet fully comfortable in conducting the sessions.  (In the future, I’ll be able to do it by Skype or other media, but I prefer practicing in person.) I advise you to take advantage of this opportunity; because the actual sessions are priced at $150/hour or $500 for a break-through session. For the first volunteers, I’ll give 5 hours free (the $500 value), after which I’ll charge the normal hourly rate. So, ACT NOW, as they say!

John Grinder (linguistics) and Richard Bandler (mathematics and gestalt therapy) created NLP  to generate models of excellence; however, these techniques are applicable to every area of life, including, but not limited to business. Lots of information is available on the NLP founders’ website.  In brief, they say that

NLP is founded on two fundamental presuppositions:1. The Map is Not the Territory…we can never know reality. We can only know our perceptions of reality….It is generally not reality that limits us or empowers us, but rather our map of reality. 2. Life and ‘Mind’ are Systemic Processes. It is not possible to completely isolate any part of the system from the rest of the system.”

You can get much more detail on their website.

My Next Disappearing Act

Eyes gazing at crystal ballYes, I’m about to do it again, which means that my posts will continue to be “irregular,” to put it politely.  Soon, I’ll be attending a certification class, so I can provide hypnosis techniques, along with the NLP, to help people overcome traumas and dramas in their lives or simply to become more successful.

Blue Water drop and ripplesIf you think you’ve never meditated or been capable of being hypnotized, just think back to a time when you stared at a sunset/sunrise, or at a flickering candle flame, or at a fireplace. You were there, Baby Cakes! You were there in your Alpha brain wave state or deeper. It is so relaxing and rejuvenating! I already know how to do this, but I want to get the certification to prove it. I’ll have to pass an exam and hold practice sessions for that, too; so, stay tuned!

Why Would I Do These Things?

These are just more tools in my toolbox for being able to help people meet their own needs. Let’s explore together. Contact me with questions, or to schedule a session (still free during the practice sessions; but definitely not thereafter!)

Basic Meditation

WHAT IS BASIC MEDITATION?

Meditation

Meditation

I love Wikipedia for research! Here is part of their definition of meditation.

“…meditation refers to a … variety of practices … to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force (qi, ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness …(and) to enable its practitioner to enjoy an indestructible sense of well-being while engaging in any life activity

ALMOST NO-ONE IS REALLY GOOD AT IT!

WHO CARES?!!

Swamiji Chinmayananda

Swamiji Chinmayananda

One of my favorite teachers was Swamiji Chinmayananda(an investigative reporter turned Himalayan monk).  He used to say meditating is like riding a stationary bike in your home. “You know all along you’re not going anywhere. It’s the practice that counts.”

To paraphrase Shirley MacLaine, every time you stare at a candle flame, a sunset, waves of the ocean, or a fire in the hearth, you are meditating. Other people call it “zoning out.”

We all do it; we just don’t call it meditation. We can benefit more by doing it consciously and daily, even if only for a few minutes. Continue Reading →

SLEEP LIKE A BABY!

This is what I call the audio recording I created to help people quit worrying and not only fall asleep, but stay asleep with continued use.

DOES ‘SLEEP LIKE A BABY’ REALLY WORK?

Yes!

How do I know for sure that ‘SLEEP LIKE A BABY’ works?

…Because the sound engineer fell asleep while we were recording it, and because every time my employees tested it, they fell asleep part way through it and never could stay awake until the end – even though they were sitting or standing!

Each meditation is 30 minutes long and repeats once.  Click on these links to hear a sample of the music selections, which are:  1) Llewellyn’s  Reiki Starlight,  2) Llewellyn’s Reiki White Light, or 3) Tibetan Healing Sounds  with bells and chimes as background.  An additional version has no music, so you can have silence, or choose your own background sounds, like water, nature sounds, white noise, etc.  Copyright permissions were granted by Paradise Music & Media, and my sound mixer is Gokul Chalasani.

Classes – Wellness – Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM)

Holistic Healing / Natural Remedies

All You Need To Know … As An Introduction

As Above, So Below

As Above, So Below

As a certified practitioner of several Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and wellness  modalities, I teach Introductory classes, which explain the concepts involved.  So, if you have ever heard the term “holistic healing,”  “Complementary and Alternative Medicine,” or “CAM,” and you wondered what the heck that means, these wellness classes provide the answers for natural ways of healing yourself – meaning non-synthetic, non-pharmaceutical, and non-surgical ways of increasing your health. 

The critical thing is to penetrate the cause, not just the symptoms, of whatever the dis-ease expression is.  That involves the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of a person, as relates to his or her physical manifestations of balance and imbalance: thus, the expression, “As Above, So Below,” but without specific religious connotations.  I have worked successfully with people of many faiths and with some who had no religious philosophies.  I also have worked successfully with many animals, and it is pretty safe to say that they had no religious beliefs of any recognizable kind.  The treatments still worked.

Because there is a lot of experiential evidence (about the efficacy of things, like acupuncture) that was not obtained via traditional Western scientific study methods, I disagree with some of Wikipedia’s conclusions. Still, see what it offers for the (partial) definition of some of these terms, as follows:

Alternative medicine is any practice that is put forward as having the healing effects of medicine, but is not founded on evidence gathered using the scientific method.[1] It consists of a wide range of health care practices, products and therapies.[2] Examples include new and traditional medicine practices such as homeopathy, naturopathy, chiropractic, energy medicine, various forms of acupuncture, Traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, and Christian faith healing. The treatments are those that are not part of the conventional, science-based healthcare system,[3][4][5][6] and are not backed by scientific evidence. Complementary medicine is alternative medicine used together with conventional medical treatment in a belief, not proven by using scientific methods, that it “complements” the treatment.[n 1][1][8][9] CAM is the abbreviation for Complementary and alternative medicine.[10][11] Integrative medicine (or integrative health) is the combination of the practices and methods of alternative medicine with conventional medicine.[12]

Even the National Institutes   of Health recognizes some of the CAM modalities.  One source for learning more about Evidence Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine is the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a division of the United States National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health. Articles are available from PubMed and PubMed Central.[5]  Click here for more info.

Classes – Wellness

INTRODUCTION TO COMPLEMENTARY AND ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE

Red Rose

Did you know that ROSES have enormous healing powers?  Imagine what else you will learn!

This particular class is a four hour seminar (with breaks and snacks); but it can be an all-day seminar, too. See list of topics below. The cost is determined by number of participants, commute time and distance, etc.

In this class on wellness, we shall discuss topics, such as:

Why Anything Works = Energy!

Who and What Can Be Healed

Categories of Holistic Approaches – ingestants, physical manipulation, energy work

Some Principles, Ethics and Theory

Thoughts Are Things – how we create wellness and dis-ease through thought patterns

Sources of Messages – Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, etc.

Causes of Dis-Ease

Body as Messenger – where it hurts is a clue for healing

Correspondences – Chakras / Colors / Notes on Scale

Cleansing and Protection – cleansing not only the body, but the aura

What Happens During Healing sessions and afterward.

The only complaint I’ve ever gotten about this class (and about my other metaphysics and meditation classes) is that the students wanted the class to be longer! 

They even said this when the class was four hours long!  So, you can see we had fun and learned a lot.  The highest compliment I got recently was that not a single person even looked at his/her cell phone during the entire class!  YEA!  Contact me.  You’ll love it, too!

Classes – Affirmations, Visualization, and Meditation

Do You Know the Differences Among

Affirmations, Visualization, and Meditation?

Want to Take Some Classes?

You can book me to teach several classes about affirmations, visualization, meditation,  metaphysics, and a bunch of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) techniques.

I also teach about, small garden design and several other unrelated professional, personal, and spiritual growth topics. Watch for blogs about these, or contact me, and discover more topics in 1/2 day workshops, 2-hour, or 1-hour presentations.

 


MEDITATION CLASSES

Customized Meditations To Suit Your Needs

I create these meditation classes for beginners or for people who already know the basics.  They are composed of lengthy meditations, groups of shorter meditations, or whatever suits the purpose of your gathering. I can present the session in person or as a teleconference. The meditations may include affirmations, self-hypnosis suggestions that you like, and, typically, they utilize creative visualization images.

Talk with me about my version of “The Middle Pillar Meditation,” which is enormously healing. I used it successfully after having “flunked a mammogram” (to quote myself). It started as a scary experience! However, all turned out well when the doctor gave me a second round of tests three days later! (Note: Israel Regardie created the original meditation in the early 1900’s.)


Introduction to Affirmations, Creative Visualization, and Meditation

(a demonstration of differences and similarities)

Spa dark backgroundIn the Introduction to Affirmations, Creative Visualization, and Meditation class, we’ll discuss subtle differences and similarities.

I’ll provide an overview of several kinds of meditation and creative visualization techniques, focusing on positive thinking and attitudes.

We’ll discuss the correct ways in which to use language to accomplish the desired results when creating affirmations.

Depending on the length of the sessions you choose, we’ll approach it as a seminar or make time for participants to practice.

We’ll talk about myths, brain wave frequencies, motivation, obstacles, postures, breathing, and more.

I’ll provide examples to demonstrate and handouts to refresh your memory when you try it at home.

Beige colors of Sand swirls + stacked rocksIn the meantime, to help you decide if you want to schedule a class with me, here are the definitions from Wikipedia to describe the three areas we will explore.


AFFIRMATION

Affirmation is a declaration that something is true. Specifically, it may refer to:….Affirmations (New Age), the practice of positive thinking in New Age terminology http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affirmations.

CREATIVE VISUALIZATION

Creative visualization….refers to the practice of seeking to affect the outer world by changing one’s thoughts and expectations http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creative_visualization

MEDITATION

Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit[1] or as an end in itself.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meditation.


Testimonials

Here is a testimonial for this class from Celestino, a life-long learner, on October 19, 2012.  Later, I can post some more, but I have other priorities right now.  :)

“I first met Nancy as a student in a class she gave on Creativity Visualization. The class was amazing for its comprehensiveness and summary of various concepts in this field of spiritually. Since this first encounter, I have sought out Nancy’s advice. Nancy has provided excellent advice in a most professional manner. I have come to respect and value Nancy’s advice and counsel.”Meditation

The only complaint I’ve ever gotten about this class (and about my other metaphysics and holistic healing classes) is that the students wanted the class to be longer! 

woman talking on cell phoneStudents of all ages even said this when the class was four hours long!  So, you can see we had fun and learned a lot.  Here is the highest compliment I got in all my recent classes. Not a single person even looked at his/her cell phone during the entire class!  Can you believe it? Shocking! YEA!
