When the Student is Ready, the Teacher…Becomes the Student?

yodaYou’ve probably heard the saying “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” We could also say “When the student is ready, the coach appears.” But yesterday that statement was “When the student is ready, the coach appears… and becomes the student.” Let me explain…

One of my clients is making the transition from a 20+ year career as a psychotherapist, to becoming a certified “Tapping into Wealth” Coach. To introduce others to her services, Teri offers a complimentary “Money Map” session. The purpose of this session is to explain the five types of money we have and identify any blocks which may be preventing us from being more financially successful. Yesterday, I experienced this Money Map session with Teri.

I had three intentions when I volunteered for this:
1. To be supportive of my client’s new coaching business
2. To better understand the specifics of what she does, so I can be the best coach for her
3. To gain insight into her ideal client and possibly suggest referrals

What I did not intend, was to be totally amazed at what came up for me, in terms of blocks I didn’t even know I had around money. WOW!!!
I won’t even attempt to explain what this Money Map experience is like, but I will share this link which does explain it. And I will enthusiastically encourage you to schedule a session for yourself, while you’re there.

I expected to give help and support to a client yesterday. What I received was an eye-opening education and an intriguing new awareness about money and wealth. I love surprises like that!

A BIG thank you to Teri Bach for her knowledge and guidance. I hope you will take advantage of her complimentary Money Map sessions while they remain complimentary. (I wouldn’t be a good coach if I let her give it away forever :-) )

Are you in the Habit of Being Happy?

Image 1

RN’s, Pharmacists, Psychologists and Nurse Educators can receive Continuing Medical Education credits for attending a seminar on The Habits of Happy People :-)

There is something validating, even empowering about having the medical community acknowledge the health benefits of positive thinking and being happy. The brochure on the left outlines the advantages to our overall well-being related to developing habits which make us HAPPY!

As a Registered Nurse turned personal coach, just seeing this brochure makes me happy. It adds credibility to my role as a teacher of the Law of Attraction. It confirms what I have known for many years, yet what many choose to debate~ that our thoughts and feelings have a profound effect on our results.

When you FEEL good, you attract good.
When you FEEL not-so-good, there are many things you can and should do to feel better.

The easiest and fastest way to improve even the worst day, is to be grateful for what you already have. Simply take a deep breath and focus on everything in your life that is awesome. If you’re really struggling, make a list; actually write those things down. You can start with your heart beating and your lungs breathing and your kidneys filtering and…. you get the idea!

What habits do you have that make you happy?
What habits can you begin to form?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts… right after I register for this seminar!

STOP! In The Name Of Deepak

Deepak Chopra
Not the greatest pic, but how cute is he in his Jeans?

Last week I was fortunate to meet Deepak Chopra, up-close and personal.  It was just myself, Deepak and 1,000 of his closest friends.  He spoke for an hour, gave us a copy of his awesome new book, Super Brain and off we went.   Continue reading

Is Your Help Really Helpful?

In preparation for the final week of my Vortex Meditation Workshop, I was re-reading the Chapter on relationships and the following quote reminded me of how important my thinking is when I want to help someone.  Abraham says: Continue reading

Three Simple Ways To Benefit From Meditation

Up until recently, after countless hours of attempts and disappointments, I had decided that meditation was overrated; it was too hard; I wasn’t doing it right; there was a secret that the experts weren’t sharing.  At the very least, I had decided that meditation was not for me!  Why would I want to sit still, with my eyes closed for fifteen minutes, doing nothing if I didn’t perceive a benefit?  No thank you!

You Do Some Meditation and You Turn Yourself Around….

And that’s <clap>what it’s all <clap> about <clap, clap>

I take that back.  Meditation is not what it’s all about ~ Feeling Good is what it’s all about! Meditation is just a tool to help get us there.  And if you ask me, (which I realize you didn’t, but hey~it’s my blog!) there’s no faster, better, easier form of meditation than Abraham-Hicks “Getting Into The Vortex Guided Meditation”.

And if you’re anything like me, when you decide to begin a new habit that’s supposedly good for you, you definitely want to notice results quickly, unmistakably and easily, or you’re likely to give up on it.

So why am I standing on this meditation soapbox?  Admittedly, I am no expert in the practice of meditation.  I’m a nurse, a coach and a Mom and aside from the few classes I’ve taken and books I’ve read on meditation, I’ve had no formal training on this subject.  Yet here I am, blogging about a practice that I have only recently added to my routine, as if I’m an authority.  Who do I think I am anyway?  I’m simply someone who, when they find something they like, shares it.  And when I find something I love; something that takes just 15 minutes a day and makes everyday better, I write about it~  And create a workshop to share it with others.   So here’s why…

Meditating regularly can help you:
1. Feel happier
2. Relieve chronic pain
3. Strengthen your Immune System
4. Feel more energy
5. Focus and pay attention more easily
6. Sleep better
7. Handle stress more effectively
8. Enjoy and appreciate every minute of every day more fully.

Add those all together and you’ve got a world-class recipe for feeling good.
And when you feel good, you vibrate at a higher frequency than when you feel not-so-good.
And when you vibrate at a higher frequency, you attract things on a higher frequency.
And chances are almost certain, that all the things and experiences and relationships and health and wealth and happiness you want are at that higher frequency.
And the only way to get them is to be a vibrational match to them.

In summary, meditate!
If you’re already doing it, I’d love to hear your experiences and techniques.
If you’re not already doing it, at the very least, go buy the book and give it a try.  And at the very best, join us in this workshop which begins TONIGHT, Wednesday August 1st at 8PM EST. (Is it really August already?!?!)
I’m confident you will say “this is one of THE BEST things I’ve ever done~in my entire life!” Seriously!

Meditation Doesn’t Work! Up Until Now…

In the last post we discussed how our Immune System is affected by our mental attitude and touched on the fact that research shows the practice of meditation improves our immune response.  He (the Ph.D. who gave the seminar AND did the research) said that people with weakened Immune Systems showed a vast improvement when they meditated on a regular basis.

This is very good news…if you meditate.  My experience tells me that most people don’t, which I find completely understandable, because MEDITATION IS BORING!  At least that’s what I used to think. Continue reading

Think Yourself Healthy

Last week I attended a seminar titled “The Immune System: The Mind-Body Connection: Who Gets Sick And Who Stays Well” These programs are a requirement to maintain my Nursing license, and usually pretty dull and boring.  Well, not only wasn’t I bored, but I came away feeling as inspired as if I had heard a great motivational speaker.
