In my practice I work with many individuals who suffer with anxiety and may not even understand how or why it even began. The mind triggers fear and your body is responsive.
Anxiety can impact anyone at any age. My heart goes out to our teens who suffer with stress. Teens are often not equipped with the coping skills to understand how to handle their emotions and stress management. This can lead to anxiety, physical illness, withdrawal, aggression and even to self-medicating of drugs and alcohol.
So, you may ask what truly is anxiety? Anxiety can occur when we perceive a situation to be difficult, painful or frightening. Changes then occur in our minds and bodies to prepare us to respond to danger.
“Fight, flight or freeze” will include increased breathing rate, faster heartbeat, increased blood to muscles of arms and legs, cold or clammy hands and feet, upset stomach and a sense of dread. Sometimes an individual may think they are having a heart attack when it first begins.
The same mechanism in our mind that turns on the stress response can turn it off. As soon as you decide a situation is no longer dangerous your mind and body will begin to relax and calm down.
How do you get there? How do you manage your stress? How can you assist your family, yourself to cope with life events?
In treating your mind, body and spirit we can work together to identify how you can reach the “relaxation response” which empowers you to recognize your trigger points, develop stress management skills so that you feel less helpless and have more choices when responding to stress.
Now I am not saying this journey is not complicated or an easy fix which is why I am here to support you providing resources to help you find success in living a balanced happy life.
In August of 2017 the Full Solar Eclipse provided us the opportunity to experience transformation, a new beginning to be more aligned with our higher path & purpose. Most of us were not aware of the impact this eclipse would make on our daily life or the spiritual meaning attached to it.
What is an Eclipse??? This happens when the alignment of the sun is blocked by earth creating earth’s shadow on the moon. We are often amazed of the beauty of the eclipse not realizing the significance of the spiritual meaning to our journey in life.
In the metaphysical and spiritual world, eclipses are viewed as highly significant markers of transformation that provide gateways to support us in entering into a higher dimension of being.
So may I ask…have you been feeling disoriented, unsettled and confused? Have you experienced unexpected changes in your life over the past 15 months?
Think back over the past year to the areas that felt most uncomfortable. It could be your career, relationships, home or a combination of these. It could also be your thoughts and beliefs. Old thought patterns can limit your success and happiness.
Normally we only experience an eclipse twice every year. This summer we had three plus the full solar eclipse August of 2017 that we are just now completing.
Please note….Although we have Solar Eclipses every year, having a Total Solar Eclipse is rare and something we have not seen in this country for 99 years.
The entire universe is now focused on your transformation to help you align with your highest self to live your best life. Are you?
Eclipses are known to trigger necessary life changes, which can be disruptive and uncomfortable to our daily lives. You may not have been aware of the reason for the obstacles and changes you have been experiencing for the past 15 months.
Now that you are aware, are you ready to realign with your highest purpose? Let go, release the things that do not serve you well and allow your self the gift of exploring what you really want to manifest, experience and create in your life. Now is the time to dream big!
Feeling overwhelmed? Fearful? Not sure of what the next steps are to experience the healthy, abundant, purpose filled life you should be living and the rare opportunity before you?
Let me help you! First you need to do some release work to let go of the things that are holding you back. Imagine that you can begin living in alignment with your greatest dreams and desires with out fear and doubt.
Next its time to craft the future you desire, the life you have always dreamed of. Think of specific, tangible results you want to create for your health, relationships, career and self.
Last, I will teach you to become the vibrational match with your new future to be able to manifest it into reality!
Now is the time to come in and live your new beginning, experience your transformation. The universe has provided you this rare opportunity, don’t waste it.
I am here to support you and guide you on this journey.
