  • What Is Your Intention?

    What Is Your Intention?

    Not everyone enjoyed setting goals for the year.

    Today, I offer you another alternative.

    Set an intention for the year instead.

    Why for an entire year?

    Because we overestimate what we can do in a year.

    Watch the video to learn how to choose a value for the year.

  • Healing the Nervous System

    Healing the Nervous System

    I was recently on the Be the Love podcast with Stacy and Brenda.

    In this podcast we discuss:

    • Why would someone’s nervous system need healing? 
    • Why is this work needed now?  
    • What is the role of the vagus nerve on healing? 
    • How do you let go of your past? 
    • How do you re-wire your nervous system for healing?

  • Proactive Change

    Proactive Change

    The current signs are pointing to a year of change in 2023.

    The financial markets are up and down, the weather, the job markets, the health sector, etc.

    The question is, are you going to flow with the change or resist it?

    While we may not be in control of everything that happens to us in life, we are in control of how we choose to respond to what happens to us.

    When you know that change is going to happen, ask yourself, how can I prepare in advance so that I can direct the change in my favour?

    This is being a proactive agent in change versus a reactive one.

    Here’s how we can apply this to your life.

    Let’s say that you start to notice that there’s less work for you at your office. Then you hear about restructuring happening. You can either wait to see if you’ll keep your job or you can prepare in case you don’t.

    What steps could you take? Update your resume, start to look around at other opportunities, start looking for leads, get references together, look to upgrade your current skills, start a side hustle, etc.

    If anything were to happen and you suddenly lost your job, you would already ahead of the game.

    Be the change and use change to propel you forward. Resist the change and life will force you to change.

    My next FREE workshop is on Tuesday, Feb 14 at 1 pm EST on Zoom. Register here for Discover Your Breath: https://optimizemyhealing.com/workshops-2/

  • You Are Not Broken

    You Are Not Broken

    For the most part, when we visit a doctor or another practitioner, it’s usually because we think there’s a problem that needs to be fixed. 

    On top of that, we are looking for someone outside ourselves to fix the problem.

    If you want to fix something then it is assumed that something is broken.

    But what if, you’re not broken?

    The way that I chose to practice is to look at a person as if they were whole, perfect and complete as they are.

    They are not broken and there’s nothing to fix.

    They’ve simply lost connection.

    Imagine you’re talking on your cellphone and suddenly, your call gets dropped. You don’t immediately think your cellphone is broken and throw it out the window.

    You try to make your call again or look for a place with better reception. Your first thought is that your phone has lost connection to the cellphone tower, not that it is broken.

    Why is your first thought that you are broken?

    The phone isn’t broken, it’s simply lost connection to receive its proper signals.

    This happens to your body as well. 

    Healing is not about correction or fixing because you’re broken. It is about the connection between your body and your nervous system.

    My next free workshop is on Tuesday, January 17 at 1 pm EST on Zoom. It’s called: Set Yourself Up for Success.

  • Should You Really Try Harder?

    Should You Really Try Harder?

    Too often our default pattern when something isn’t working is to try harder.

    If there’s a breakdown in our finances, relationships or health, we tell ourselves: I’ll try harder to save, increase my communication or workout more. 

    The challenge is that there is a limit to our more. 

    We will eventually reach a point where we simply cannot try harder at something. I.e. you can only spend so much time at the gym or there’s a limit to what you can save.

    Trying harder isn’t necessarily the solution to achieving more. Sometimes, it’s even part of the problem.

    I’m not saying that you don’t have to work hard towards your goals or that it doesn’t require hard work to achieve success.

    Simply, that trying harder isn’t always the answer.

    So, what do you need to do?

    You’ve got to change gears and instead follow new patterns of thoughts and actions.

    Why?

    If you keep doing what you’ve always been doing, you will keep getting what you’ve always got.

    Because more of the same will usually give you, more of the same.

    You need to try something new.

    Next time, instead of trying harder, ask yourself, will trying harder get me towards my goal?

    If not, how can I do something differently than I’m currently doing now?

  • Destiny Is Calling

    Destiny Is Calling

    Ring ring, ring ring.

    It’s destiny calling.

    Are you going to answer the call?

    Your life changes the moment that you make a decision.

    What decision? 

    A decision to change your life. 

    A decision to recognize that currently there’s a gap between where you are in your life and where you want to be. 

    A decision that you have a desire to close the gap.

    A decision to go on an adventure.

  • How to Treat Others

    How to Treat Others

    When I was growing up, I was taught the golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. In other words, treat others as you would like them to treat you. 

    At first glace, this makes sense, be kind to others as you would like them to be kind to you. However, if you look deeper, you will find that statement doesn’t always hold true.

    People don’t want you to treat them like you want to be treated, they want you to treat them how they want to be treated. 

    Let’s say for example that I have an outgoing and loud personality.  If I was in a classroom setting, I may want to be called upon in class and to do speeches and participate. Imagine if I treated everyone in class like that? What would happen to the shy, introverted people? They would be terrified and never come back to class.

    Instead, treat others as they want to be treated. If you don’t know how they want to be treated in a certain circumstance, ask them. It’s a chance to get to know someone better.

  • Change Your Destiny

    Change Your Destiny

    Examining your current life course, are you satisfied with where you are now and where you are heading?

    If you are, let’s take a minute to celebrate you. You are one of the few that are living out the life of your dreams or following the path to your heart’s desire. That’s amazing!

    If you are not, then, this is your call to destiny.

    This is your call to adventure.

    You can make a decision at any moment to change the course of your destiny.

    Why not make it right now?

    In this current climate, there’s a lot of turmoil and uncertainty. From economic to health crisis, the news is grim.

    However, your life does not need to follow suit if you choose it not to.

    In every economic downturn, there are people who do well. In fact, the luxury goods market is skyrocketing right now with no plans for slowing down.

    If you can master yourself, then you can create your own economy.

    Your destiny is knocking, are you going to answer the call?

    If you already know your next step, please have the courage to make your move.

    If you are unsure what to do, I’ve created a 2 month intensive container to support you on finding it out.

    Starting on Monday, Dec 12, I’m running a special 2 month Daily Dose of Healing program. More details here: https://optimizemyhealing.com/course/

    Why am I starting it now and not next year?

    We don’t have time to waste.

    Most people wait until New Year’s to figure out their goals, take action for a few weeks and then stop. I dislike going to the gym in January because it’s always full. However, come February, it’s back to the regular people I see every week. 

    I want you to already have a head start by January and with 60 days of accountability and community, I want you to create the best year of your life. 

    When others are not doing well, I want you to have the tools and strategies to succeed. 

    Looking forward to continuing this journey together.
