Anxiety is so pervasive in our culture today, many think it is “normal” to be in constant fear. However, living in anxiety disrupts health on every level of our body. There are many ways of dealing with anxiety, but can we truly go beyond it to be free?
I recently visited Newport, Rhode Island, with my family and had a ball! My mom and aunt are some of the most fun people I know. In their 70’s, they are the most vibrant, healthy, and happy women around, and part of this is certainly because they stay active and are willing to try new things. In fact, trying things you haven’t done before changes your brain — and helps release old patterns.

The mind tends to make it complicated, however, when we’re in the space of the heart, there is ease, serenity, and clarity. We are in alignment with our true nature.

As we enjoy the beginning of our summer season, I want to invite you to take part in the ancient act of connecting with the ground, called “Earthing.” To experience this, all you need to do is take off your shoes and let your body connect with grass, dirt, rocks, or sand.
We all want to feel GOOD, and sometimes, the idea of “being positive” can lead us astray. Often, to release the shackles of grief, despair or any emotions we’ve stuffed, we must go DOWN into these places in order to be free.
You’re probably all familiar with the term “work-life balance.” It’s a common phrase in our culture that implies an individual needs time allocated for work and also time for other aspects of life…
Previous medical understanding stated that your genes determine your health, your body shape, and even what diseases you get. We now know, however, that you CAN shift your genetic expression by changing your relationship with your body. Learn how this woman did just that and how her body transformed!
Have you been carrying your parent’s energy? Do you get triggered by your family or notice yourself being your mother/father even though you swore you would never be that? In last week’s MindBody TV episode, I shared how we can become aware of the family patterns we’re carrying that are blocking health and wealth…
There’s a great question that comes up a lot in my work and it pertains to the subtle difference between thinking positively versus allowing our thoughts to be as they are. When we notice negative thoughts and try to shift to a more positive mindset, this can create work. We don’t need to control our thoughts!
We all struggle at times with sabotaging ourselves, doing things even though we know they’re not good for us. Whether it’s binging on a decadent chocolate cake or spending a whole weekend in front of the TV, we feel the shame and wrongness of it because we judge ourselves as wrong…
In my Embracing Health program, an amazing question came up this week: How can I embrace the darkest parts of myself without spiraling into depression? It’s a powerful question with a simple answer.
Many of us are walking around disconnected from the wisdom and guidance that is in our body. This can make us feel lost and anxious in our lives. We don’t know what to do so it seems there is no way out. We think things are impossible, but that’s just because we can’t SEE the possibilities that exist.
I had a great question in the MindBody Community the other day where a participant was confused about what it means to “embrace what is.” How can I just sit by and do nothing when I’m so sick and things are far from okay?! We often think embracing means just sitting by and letting things be as they are without taking action.
A common question that comes up often in my work is, “If my body can heal, then why do I still need supplements or medicine?” It’s not about not needing anything external. It’s about RECEIVING THAT FROM ALIGNMENT, versus searching and choosing out of fear. Here is a story about how this happened for me!
This week, we had a group call where I answered questions about my Embracing Health program. The biggest take-home is, when we are willing to BE WITH all that is, we move out of resistance and receive so much more. It’s not easy, it’s not always pretty, but it IS the only way to truly LIVE!
There were some great questions from last week’s Facebook LIVE video and I wanted to be sure to answer these to Bring you deeper into the experience of SURRENDER. This is the most powerful way to RECEIVE health instead of trying to create it.
One of my mentors, Byron Katie, had suffered terrible anxiety and depression for years, before an experience of deep surrender that changed her life. Since then, she experiences “no suffering” but instead feels deep love and compassion for everything that arises.
One of the BIGGEST things I see keeping people stuck in lack and limitation… -not enough HEALTH, -not enough ENERGY, -not enough TIME, -not enough MONEY, -not enough LOVE… Is the underlying idea “I’m not enough.” It comes in many forms…
The magnetic power of your HEART is 5,000 times more impactful than that of your brain, yet most of us spend our time using our brain to solve our problems.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Yes, LOVE does heal your body. Here is an EFT Tapping sequence to assist you in releasing self-sabotage and embracing self-love so you can HEAL easily and receive LOVE in your life!
When you try to make things happen in your life and are holding certain expectations or outcomes in mind, you are in a space that is conditional. You might get what you want… you might not, AND it’s in the future.
I recently had a session with a client who became aware that she was blocking LOVE. As soon as she became aware of this blockage, she thought it was a problem!
This time of year, there’s a lot of talk and press about “Flu Season” and all the things you need to do to protect yourself. It can bring up lots of fear that suppresses our immune system!
I was recently interviewed by Kimberly Baker for the “Soulful Self Care Summit” and we had an AMAZING conversation that led to SO much more than I’d imagined. The main theme was “Igniting the Miracles” that are READY to happen for you.
I am often asked whether medications are “bad” when we’re practicing MindBody Medicine and inviting self-healing. There are also many in my community who have shared a fear or wrongness about conventional medical treatments and testing.
Health, Fitness, and Ideal Weight are the result of your INNER STATE, even more so than food or exercise.
So much unnecessary stress occurs during this time of the year. We take on other people’s energy, get bogged down with expectations, and get caught up in being “busy” instead of being in Joy and Ease.
I will be joining my friend, Laya Raznik, a pain-medicine specialist and acupuncturist, to share healing tools so you get out of stress this holiday and into JOY and health!
Grief can be really profound this time of year, especially if you have spent time trying to suppress it. As you end the year, your system wants to LET GO so that you can start the coming year in a new energy!
I recently interviewed Sexual Health Expert Layla Martin about how physical HEALING comes through exploring our sexuality. IT WAS AWESOME!! There are so many ways we hold toxic energies in our body around our sexuality, our physical form, and our sexual expression. In fact, many women…
Have you experienced “BRAIN FOG?” That’s a state where you feel foggy, hazy, confused, and can’t quite think clearly. There are MANY remedies people are using for this…
Don’t buy into your own thoughts about what’s possible! I was SO inspired by a woman who knew she was ready to expand and release old patterns, and wanted to work with me, but held herself back because was struggling with self-sabotage and not comfortable in her own body.
It is not the lower emotions that cause toxicity, physical imbalance, and keep us stuck! It’s RESISTANCE to those lower emotions.
I’m running a special offer for NOVEMBER ONLY for my “MindBody Solution for Anxiety Program.” If you have experienced anxiety, depression, PTSD or stress-related illness… this is a powerful way to assist your body in releasing these energies, so you are free!
Most of us are not taught to be present in our OWN bodies, much less being present for others. We don’t realize the power our presence and deep listening has for not only our own healing, but also for the healing of others.
I recently had a private session with one of my clients. She had experienced a significant trauma in her past. The energies of grief and despair were still in her body. By using this powerful exercise…
There are two main blocks that keep you from being fully alive in the body and having ideal health. Learn how to release them HERE!
Weight loss is a MINDSET and HEARTSET, far more than it is about exercise and diet. My friend, Dr. Fabrizio Mancini recently created a “21-Day Weight Loss Challenge” and I created 21-Days of MindBody videos as part of this challenge.
“How are you?” “I’M SO BUSY!” …if this is a conversation you’ve had too many times, WATCH THIS!
Our inner alignment creates our life and everything we experience. It directly affects our health AND our outer world. We go through life thinking we can create the outer first, by “going” and “doing” and then when that’s done, we will feel good…
So often, we spend so much of our energy trying to avoid pain, whether it be physical, mental, or emotional. We find things to distract us in order to avoid the things we don’t want to feel, but that energy gets stuck in the body and causes chronic pain and health issues.
What is it that blocks so many from healing? There are three key factors keeping you stuck.
It always amazes me how quickly and fluidly people can heal even the most stubborn appearing illnesses that have been present for decades, when they finally embrace profound compassion.
We begin NEXT WEEK for my 5-month live program “Embracing Health!” This program has already gained momentum as participants have been sharing in the Facebook group.
It’s not up to you to fix your pain, your illness, your fatigue. Your body is not “wrong” when there is illness or dis-ease. Rather, it’s up to us to OPEN and RECEIVE the “gift” in this breakdown, the “benefit” of the challenge we’re facing.
The more we are ATTACHED to healing as an outcome, the less we will heal. The more we focus on connecting with WHOLENESS and Pure Love, the more healing happens automatically.
We are moving into a new paradigm where instead of struggling to “make it happen” and heal our body, we OPEN and receive effortlessly. This makes no sense to the mind, which clearly sees the limitations and lack we’re dealing with…
What is the difference between transmutation and transformation? We have the ability within us to allow all things to fall away that are blocking us from our highest level of vitality.
Have you ever been triggered by something that happened or something someone said? …Or ruminated over and over about something that was bothering you, unable to just let it go?
Sometimes, we get hung up on “trying to heal” our bodies. We think we should be able to just let go and have everything happen spontaneously. We think if we turn to medications or supplements, somehow this is a failure.
One of the greatest things that allows our body to be in discord, creates imbalance, disease, amplifies pain is the ways we’re not really present for our-self. We spend most of our lives trying to “fix the pain,” or prevent what we fear, instead of…
Noticing fear and anxiety can be a part of our awakening. Our ego tells us that we are supposed to be able to heal our body. But, YOU cannot heal your body. YOU can’t fix your fatigue. Not in the way you think. It is not up to YOU.
