The Simple Daily Routine that Will Transform Your Life

 If there was one, simple thing you could do every morning that cost nothing, that could completely transform your life, would you do it? If you could wave a magic wand right now and change something in your life, what would it be? 

In the absence of a magic wand, do you want that change enough to take a few minutes each morning to get those changes? You brush your teeth every morning so that they will remain healthy and strong; and you take a shower or bath to remain clean and hygienic; you wash your dishes (or pack and unpack the dishwasher) so that they remain clean and hygienic; you get dressed so that you don’t turn up in public in your pajamas (or worse).

This little routine is the equivalent of all these other habits you already practice every day – it takes a little discipline to do it at first, and then it becomes automatic – and the effects will astound you.

How to Transform Your Life through One Simple Routine

Take just a few minutes in the morning, before you start your day, to practice this routine. Make it a priority. Skip listening to or reading the news; postpone checking social media until later; get up just a few minutes earlier – do whatever it takes to fit this in because it affects absolutely everything else in your life.

Grab a piece of paper and a pen, sit comfortably, and take a deep breath. Now, think about the day ahead, and write down the things that are bothering you. Write down what you’re worried or anxious about, write down the challenges you’re expecting – anything that makes you feel less than good.

Next, take the thing that bothers you most, close your eyes, take another deep breath, and notice how you feel about it. Notice what you’re feeling, where in your body you’re feeling it, and how strong it is. Then use the FasterEFT technique to clear and flip it. If memories come up while you’re going through this process, make a note of them, and address those as well. Don’t stop until you have completely cleared and flipped the feelings, thoughts and memories that were bothering you.

How Does it Work?

This is not about just feeling better in the moment. It’s not even about putting your mind at rest for the day ahead. What you are doing during that process is changing the original records in your subconscious that are the cause of the experiences that are bothering you.
This is more than coping better with your challenges – it is the mind-hack tool to transform those challenges, no matter what they may be.

From physical ailments and anxiety to problems with other people and difficult circumstances, what you experience is determined by what you are carrying in your subconscious.

Tips for Success

  • You may find you feel resistance to doing this each day. If this is the case, it’s even more important to do it since it means you are very close to change! For more information on this, read: What You Need to Know About Resistance.

  • Time is a big challenge for most people in the mornings. Prioritize this routine over everything else – even if it’s just for one week. Since it will affect everything else, it is the priority.

  • You may not believe it will work. It can seem too simple to really have an impact. Why not just try it for two days. As long as you’re doing it correctly, and following the process until you flip the feelings, thoughts and memories, you should see enough of a difference in those two days to continue.

Tapping and Cancer

I've known for years that chronic stress can lead to disease including cancer.  

My personal journey to stay healthy started about 15 years ago after my divorce. I knew if I didn't deal with my negative emotions, they would eat away at my body over time.

That journey lead to yoga, meditation and EFT or tapping. I've been practicing tapping since 2008 with many positive results. 

The following article on how tapping can help fight cancer is very informative and I am glad to see tapping getting the recognition it deserves!

"You may know that stress reduction is vital to maintaining health and fighting cancer, but just where do you begin to create true emotional health? Luckily, you might not have to spend hours in a therapist’s chair in order to heal the emotional wounds that could be standing between you and cancer healing and prevention.

Emotional Freedom Technique (also known as EFT or Tapping) is a fast, easy, and effective way to reduce anxiety, clear emotional blocks, and become more peaceful and focused in all areas of your life."

Take your power back by accepting you are in control of your life!

Many times, when I sit down to write, I second guess what I want to write about.

I have never felt comfortable expressing my thoughts on paper, though it was very therapeutic once I did it.  Publishing those thoughts for people to read is a different story and it has stifled my self expression in the past. Reflecting, it has been about feeling vulnerable, being judged or feeling like I was good enough.

That is why I sometimes struggle to blog; that fear of being judged, feeling vulnerable.

On the other hand, I have so much that I want to share and express. I am passionate about the mind/body connection, helping others realize how they are in control of their lives more than what they consciously realize.

I was not the most popular in school and in a class of 500+, it was easy to get lost. 
It felt safe to stay in the background, unnoticed so no one would find something to criticize.
I struggled to be accepted yet didn't want to follow the crowd. 
I had a mind of my own but was afraid to speak it for fear of sounding stupid.

I was not stupid and I was not a victim of my peers making me feel less than perfect. I was a victim of my own thoughts, my own beliefs about what I thought they believed about me, which may have been absolutely nothing. I gave my power away because I didn't know any better at that time. 

They had their own problems, their own issues, but that didn't occur to me at that tender age. It's only now that I realize no one is perfect and we all have a story, we all have something to say and share with each other. We can learn a lot from each other if we listen more and judge less.

I am not a victim of anything other than my own thoughts. I am where I am because of the choices I have made and more accountable I was regarding those choices and my attitude surrounding the outcome of those choices. My personal power lied in taking responsibility for my own thoughts, ideas and perception and not in blaming others. 

Let's commit to judging and criticizing others less and more importantly, stop judging, stop criticizing your self and stop feeling like a victim. Take your power back by accepting you are in control of your life! 

Showering you with blessings personal power! 

Will the New Year be a good one or a bad one?

What is the secret to experiencing a new year, a new month, a new week or even a new day?
Robert G. Smith explains....

Renewed hope can be intoxicating
The new year always seems to bring with it, a feeling of renewed hope. The symbolism of saying goodbye to the past and looking forward to the new year is intoxicating, especially when the last year brought experiences that were mentally and emotionally draining.

On New Year's Eve day, I met with a group of friends. This circle of friends hold a special place in my heart. They are uplifting, non judgmental, supportive and give unconditional love and encouragement. I feel so blessed to have crossed paths with them years ago.

Meeting on the last day of the year has become a tradition for us, reflecting on the last twelve months and looking forward to the new year with anticipation. We share our successes, no matter how insignificant they may seem. As each person shares, it ignites memories in each of us sparking eager anticipation of telling our stories. We feed off each others positive energy and by the time we're finished, we realize just how special all of our experiences were. 

One underlying feeling that seems to emerge from each story is the fact that we all had obstacles, failures or losses that became the catalyst for change. Had we not had the self awareness to realize that those negative experiences lead to the changes we needed,  our stories would have taken on a completely different tone. 

As a friend reflected on her an emotional hardship, she said she surprised herself during the process. She remembered telling herself she wasn't going to "unpack her bags there" which enabled her to move forward with ease and grace. Her reflection, her attitude and her general outlook on the future were inspirational and it set the tone for the rest of us.

As I awoke today, the first day of the new year, I knew that in order to move forward I would have to greet each day with a sense of renewed hope and embrace every obstacle that lay in my path this year as an emotional barometer, keeping me on course, keeping me in alignment with where I need to be.

So today, I challenge you to let go of what weighed you down last year and emotionally release everything that didn't serve your highest good. Let it go without guilt or regret. Cut all ties with anything or anyone that is toxic to your emotional or spiritual growth
I further challenge you to surround yourself with people that inspire, uplift and love you unconditionally.

Your world will change when you change how you look at the world. 

Showering you with renewed hope and inspiration in 2017!
