I promise not to tell you, “Take three deep, cleansing breaths,” or “Count to ten,“ although that, too, would be helpful as a start!
Instead, I’ll recap some points covered in an inspirational Zoom session I had recently with some of my Life Coach colleagues. We talked about ways in which anxiety is a
tool for success
in both business and personal situations.
We shall look at some examples. (If you’re in a hurry or just want to – scroll past the definitions to “get to the meat” of the conversation. Look for the heading, “Pain Is the Point – In a Good Way!”) Scroll to the end to find books as reference materials, if you want to learn more from experts on the subject. Continue Reading →
Healthy foods – when combined properly and used consistently – can have wonderful illness-prevention properties and may reduce bloating, gas, reflux, and other yucky symptoms!
I found a great site, Shape-Able.com. which elaborates on several kinds of foods that are best to address specific conditions. I encourage you to go to their site. However, I’ll share a few of their pictures (with permission) to give you examples. Then, you’ll know it’s worth the time to investigate more on their website!
I am not a nutritionist. Most of the classes I teach are about personal or professional development and other ways of being or becoming healthy. Examples include setting boundaries, self-care, stress reduction, meditation, working with chakras, “energy work” – like Reiki, and learning techniques for changing fears and limiting beliefs so that you can meet your personal and professional goals. However, I KNOW THAT “WE ARE WHAT WE EAT,” so I want to share this great information with you. If you want to know more about my specialties, see the Contact Us info at the end of this blog or email me at GetWellStayWell@outlook.com. Do yourself a favor, though, and see the healthy food info below first.
Because lots of us are feeling scattered, harried, harassed, and not at home in our own bodies, given all the stressors these days, that’s why! We need help, and I can provide some.
Recently, I’ve been teaching an intensive course called “Chakras With Benefits.“ It is among many classes I teach on Zoom.
First, in case you don’t know about them, here is a link to describe chakras (in great detail, because it takes you to Deepak Chopra’s site.
He’s a prolific writer, teacher, physician, metaphysician, and spiritual guru, who combines an understanding of Eastern and Western medicine and metaphysics in educating people throughout the world.)
I used the term, “With Benefits” because I kept adding extra information to each class. These concepts are loosely related to the chakra system but are not typically taught as part of the subject matter. However, I have many holistic healing and metaphysics certifications and interests, so I couldn’t resist tossing in some spiritual pursuits information that I thought would be helpful.
Thus, a course that my students and I thought would last for 7 or 8 weekly sessions, took us over two months to complete, and we could have gone on much longer. It was fascinating and fun! I gave certificates of completion to those who finished all the classes.
I’ll quote what two of them said.
“I just completed the most amazing class with Nancy Ayanna Wyatt. The Beginners Chakra Class is an overview of the body’s energy system presenting what each chakra governs and reacts to.
This is an excellent college-level course masterfully taught using a variety of teaching media from lectures to guided imagery to videos and recordings. I particularly benefited from the class exercises, discussions, and meditations. These interactive exercises provided experiential evidence of how I could personally benefit from aligning with the body’s energy system.
Nancy skillfully shared her knowledge and experience punctuated with delightful anecdotes. The amount of supplemental materials provided in addition to course content goes beyond the basics allowing for further research and the creation of individual meditations and healing practices.”
~ Ravenell W.
Nancy is an amazing teacher on so many levels. Her classes are extremely thorough and she goes above and beyond to add extra resourceful content, which I appreciate so much. She is passionate and knowledgeable and her voice alone allows you to focus and feel calm with all that she teaches. The topics are numerous and well put together. I look forward to taking more classes and enjoying learning all her different fields of expertise.

I couldn’t have asked for better students, but I shall offer the course again if there is sufficient interest.
Meanwhile, here is what I promised you. Note: I did not add sounds to my narrations, because you might want to:
I hope this helps you feel less scattered, well-grounded, and happy to be who you are, despite any and all challenges you may face.
If you are interested in taking this or other classes or if you would like a life coaching / spiritual counseling session with me, just let me know.
I offer a FREE Initial Consultation during which we can discuss your needs and how I may best help you.
Simply email me at GetWellStayWell@outlook.com and put “Chakra Class Inquiry” or “Consultation Inquiry” into the subject line.
When you write, please give me a hint as to which topic you want to pursue. Then, we can arrange for the FREE “Sip & Share” session on Zoom, if that’s the best way to proceed.
In the meantime,

Chakras Rule! Why would I say that? What are they? Chakras are energy centers in the body. The word, chakra, means “wheel” or “disk” in Sanskrit. Commonly, the phrase for chakras is “spinning wheels of energy.” Each rules specific glands, organs, and emotions. They relate not only to your health but also to your relationships – from those with your parents and the “tribe” into which you were born – to those within your conception (or lack thereof) of “God,” not to mention your relationship with yourself.
Thus, chakra healing can help create and maintain body, mind, spiritual, and emotional health. It’s worth spending time to learn more about them and how deficiencies, excesses, and proper functioning affect our daily lives and experiences, in addition to our physical well-being. If you have issues, what can you do about it? Happily, that’s part of what I teach. Continue Reading →
To go from grief to relief, adaptation clearly is critical to our success. The New Year is upon us, bringing continued threats of an ongoing pandemic, inflation, losing or changing employment, and even the potential of a world war as Russia threatens further invasion of Ukraine. That’s the global view. In addition, most of us have personal challenges that may include the death of a loved one.
What is a person to do to stay sane and productive? How can one acquire or maintain the good mental health that is so important for physical health? Let’s get personal.
It can start with reframing your outlook or understanding of things that have happened to you, as you navigate forward. We’ll offer an extreme example and then an all-too-common life challenge. Finally, we’ll talk about the aftermath of the death of a loved one (human or animal) for whom you may have been Care Giver. Continue Reading →
I’m having some coffee with one of the most exotic face masks today.
This is a photo I took of a real cactus, and you can see in it the mandala design that the Creator made. That plant was at Merrifield Garden Center in Northern Virginia years ago. I fell in love with it!
May you find beauty in your surroundings today!

The manicurist might not recognize the symptoms your fingernails portray. However, some practitioners of Eastern and Western Medicine or of Holistic Healing Modalities can identify health problems by looking at your fingernails before you cover them up with nail polish.
Here are some resources before we continue. They help define our terms of Eastern, Western, and Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM / holistic healing). They also provide more pictures and links than I can include in this blog.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) compares Eastern and Western approaches to medicine and health.
An easier way to understand it may be found in the blog of a person who has practiced “all of the above.” Dr. Emili Kim describes his findings.
I am neither a physician nor a practitioner of Eastern Medicine. However, I am certified in a number of holistic healing (CAM) methods. I can share what they know and what I know as you stare at your fingernails.
Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, alternative medicine, and now Western medicine often agree on the value of “reading” fingernails (and toenails), eyes, ears, and tongues in the diagnostic process.
