Start , Stop and Continue for 2021. When we challenge ourselves, you can change,

April 9, 2021

Ive recorded an episode with this topic as I began my podcast last year. Its a powerful exercise to do at the beginning of the year or really any time. My women's circle that I am a part of challenges us to go through this exercise during our last support session with each other. 

I challenge you to take time to think: 

What will I stop doing? 

What will I start doing? 

What will I continue ? 

I share my initial reactions and then what I felt as I dove a little deeper. 

I'd love to hear from you and what you came up with. 

When we take time to think about what is working our our lives and what is NOT and what we can accept to change...that is when the real growth happens.

Movement and Dance is a healing part of Life: Ioana Aboumitri: Author and owner of Kelani Dance

Movement and Dance is a healing part of Life: Ioana Aboumitri: Author and owner of Kelani Dance

April 2, 2021

Ioana is an author and founder of Kelani, a mission to spread the spirit of her Samoan Ancestors in the form of dance. We were blessed to be contacted through Matchmaker.fm, a new platform a bit like a Tinder for podcasters. 

Her story of her disordered eating and more importantly about her feeling about her self image and attachment to the scale is fascinating and one that we can ALL learn from. She wrote a book My Breakup with the Scale. She shares her realizations she had during this pandemic and what lead to this book. 

We also talk about movement and dance. The traditions from her Samoan culture are rich. As I've shared about my dance, I have learned it it more than Ballroom dance, it truly is a form of therapy and healing. 

Our conversation is rich and meaningful and I know you will enjoy it as much as I did.  

Her purpose is connection and her mission is to #spreadAlofa 

You can find more about Ioana at http://www.kelaniworld.com 

Kelani is an exhilarating holistic Polynesian 'movement" : Take off your shoes and feel the rhythm of your souls!!!

Elle Whitehall: The Power of Resilience and Shame during Recovery!

March 26, 2021

Elle Whitehall joins me today sharing her story in a vulnerable way. She opens about how a tragedy in high school lead her onto a path of destruction, guilt and self sabotage and poor decisions. And yet she came out on the other side of this pain and trauma. 

We talk about Safe People, a wonderful book by Henry Cloud

We talk about Choosing your Pain! And the power of a hair tie! 

The Five Minute Journal you can find here. 

We talk about the power of Forgiveness! 

It's a great conversation . Regardless of the struggles you have, when you make a choice to make your tomorrow better than today, learn to forgive yourself, have compassion for yourself and learn to look past the shame while taking one step at a time, you are well on your way to a new life . I know you will find a lot of nuggets here. 

I am thankful for the courage that Elle had today to share all this and more on my platform.

EFT and how it helped Eric Almeida recover from panic attacks and agoraphobia and how he is helping others today

EFT and how it helped Eric Almeida recover from panic attacks and agoraphobia and how he is helping others today

March 19, 2021

Eric Almeida an Emotional Healing Expert and podcaster joins me today to talk about how he learned about EFT. Panic attacks started to take over at his work place and gratefully a colleague introduced him to this method of healing.  EFT or Emotional freedom technique is a form of working through your emotions in a unique way. You may have heard about it  as tapping. You will learn a lot in this episode about emotions. It's important work that Eric does. 

EFT is a proven technique that gently and permanently releases emotional pain, self-limiting beliefs and negative thoughts. EFT involves tapping on 10 different pressure points using your own hands and can often eliminate emotional pain as quickly as one session. This technique is much faster than traditional talk therapy alone. It is a vessel to help others heal. 

It targets the meridian points that are part of the Chinese medicine. Tapping helps to calm the flight , fight or freeze response to emotions or memories. You will learn how this powerful technique works and can be truly life changing. Big or little T trauma, anxiety and memories that we all go through in life, in recovery can be helped through this modality.  Eric offered me a free session and we talk through that experience as well. I know you will enjoy this episode. 

More about Eric:

The jarring experience of a panic attack reconnected him with a therapist who specialized in EFT. Many months of emotional healing later, Eric recovered from the panic attack and began to embrace his true calling. The EFT work not only healed his wounds but reignited his passion and drive to help others.

Eric embraced the gift that the panic attack gave him and aimed his efforts towards becoming an EFT practitioner. He obtained his EFT practitioner certification through EFT International. His continued goal is to guide people so that they can connect with their true calling in life. And as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, he recognizes the importance of ensuring those in his community have a safe and caring healer at their disposal.

March 12, 2021

Laurie Swanson is a friend of mine and a career strategist and inclusion advocate. 

She works hard to inspire and empower women. And she found herself courageous today sharing her story. 

We sit down today talking about behaviors and life and addictions and traumas. Traumas don't always need to be big T traumas. There are many things that bother us and we find things to do to cope . AA meetings, reading books and spiritual journeys. 

Sometimes you know you don't want to live a certain way but don't know how to make the choices to move forward. Laurie finally learned how to set boundaries and understanding how to not be a victim or martyr . And stands in her integrity and truth in order to stay sober and well. I am thankful for our conversation. You will enjoy it.

Wellness Wednesday: Real talk with Mark Ramirez: I am a nobody who became somebody because of Shaklee

Wellness Wednesday: Real talk with Mark Ramirez: I am a nobody who became somebody because of Shaklee

March 10, 2021

Today on wellness Wednesday I have the pleasure to sit down and talk with Mark Ramirez, a man I have met through my work with the  Shaklee Corporation.  You will be inspired by Mark's love of life and running. After an accident that left him burned over much of his body, he started to run to stay active, in shape and healthy. That has lead to a life of running , marathons as well as having the privilege of 'test marketing' to an extent the Shaklee sports nutrition products as they were being developed. We talk mindset, life, the commitment to quality that Shaklee takes each day, why he was given his own parking space at Shaklee and how he humbly says he is a nobody who became somebody because of Shaklee. 

You will love our conversation as much as I did. 

If you are curious about Shaklee products for yourself, check out my site here when you can view and purchase products. 

Curious about the heritage of Shaklee and the involvement with the Olympians , visit the athletes site.

Simone Yemm: Eating Disorders are just a bad way of coping with life. An eating disorder beginning at age 4 weeks.

Simone Yemm: Eating Disorders are just a bad way of coping with life. An eating disorder beginning at age 4 weeks.

February 26, 2021

I bring you Simone and her story today. A gal from down under, truly grateful to be connected to share her story.

When Simone was young, she thought she knew who she was. Now she has no idea. A cacophony of life circumstance combined with chronic sleep deprivation impacted Simone’s mental health through depression, anxiety and disordered eating. Her mental health crumbled, culminating in three psychiatric inpatient admissions and she is now wading through the recovery road. She shares that her eating disorder at age 4 weeks and raised on the fact that you can never be too rich or too thin. 

Simone spent more than three decades teaching and performing the flute before transitioning into writing and editing by completing a Masters in Journalism and working with a mentor. Stalked by Demons | Guarded by Angels: The Girl with the Eating Disorder is her first book.

I can relate to the title of her book as I've seen with so many others stories as well as my daughters journey. Thank God that the angels have guarded all of use along the ways of our journey of life. 

Simone is married to a very devoted man, admired for his strength, intelligence, resilience, loyalty and honesty. Together they’ve brought into this world three incredibly smart, sassy, funny, difficult, tall and loving young men. They’re intensely proud of them.

Wellness Wednesday: It’s Eating Disorder Awareness Week: What to look for if you suspect an eating disorder

February 24, 2021

This week is Eating Disorder Awareness week. Eating Disorders are serious and life threatening mental health conditions. As a college student, I developed an eating disorder in a time when I had low self esteem and feeling out of control in my life. Our daughter continues on her recovery journey and I have learned so much during these last 6 years. 
I share so that others can learn more about this insidious disorder that impacts 30 millions of Americans of all ages and genders. 

This years theme is NOT ONE MORE.....not one more girl or boy be taken into the grips of an eating disorder. I got a call from a local mom a couple weeks ago saying that she just learned about her daughters eating disorder and she was pretty distraught. I was so mad as ONE MORE....was taken into this awful disorder. Let's learn more so that we can do better. 

Some have asked about what to look for with eating disorders. I share some tips and facts about disorders. Please learn and share with others.

My first Ballroom Dance Competition experience: Red light stories, Inner Critic and Mistakes

My first Ballroom Dance Competition experience: Red light stories, Inner Critic and Mistakes

February 19, 2021

I have loved my experiences in ballroom dance lessons since August 2020. I had the privilege of entering a regional competition a couple weeks ago and had a wonderful time. So many things came up for me that day as well as the days leading up to the competition day. I wonder if you can relate that the things I share. 

The way we do one thing is the way we do everything. As I have shared before, it's not all the steps that I am learning for the waltz or tango or Foxtrot, it's what i am learning about myself, my life, the way I show up in life, business and all that. 

And these experiences have brought up my fears and my reflections on my inner child, that little girl that years ago just wanted to be seen for who she was , the uniqueness and creative spirit that lived inside her.  

What are your red light stories? Are you telling yourself stories that are keeping you held back in life? What are you stopping yourself from doing and experiencing? 

I so appreciate all your support and love that you have given me on social and with calls and texts. I look forward to many more wonderful dance experiences. 

What are you doing to challenge yourself? What stories are you telling yourself? Are you making mistakes and yet learning and moving forward?
