Creating Sacred Space in Your Body, Mind and Spirit

  Sacred in the true sense of the word means sustainable. As we enter the season of fall, we are entering a time in nature where trees let go of their leaves while at the same time making space for new growth for the coming spring.  This cycle of life acknowledges the need for energy to push down into the core or  roots to create sustainable nurture for any time and place called that brings challenge, while also  preparing for new opportunity.
    It is the same for each of us. Sometimes you experience obstacles that limit your ability to respond to life.
This might be related to underlying beliefs and patterns which get in the way of approaching life in a new way or seeing new possibilities in relationships, situations and events. However, by letting go of these limiting patterns, you create sacred space in your body,mind and spirit. This allows you to feel rooted and ready to experience new possibilities in your life.

Peace is a sacred space within, it is the temple of our internal landscape. ~Jaeda DeWalt

Creating Sacred Space in Your BODY:  This translates into taking care of your body with healthy choices, and setting boundaries in nourishing ways for your self-care and relationships.
Creating Sacred Space in Your MIND:  Observing and attending to your thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes allows
you to begin to choose what is supportive and energizing to your life.
Creating Sacred Space in Your SPIRIT: You are a unique person with unique gifts. The inspiration to
share your gifts and talents are essential to your spirit and life purpose.
Creating sacred space in your body, mind and spirit will allow you to experience greater integrity for your inner value and what you value.  This is experienced through your body,your thoughts, beliefs and actions.  In turn, this ripples out into your life in your sense of purpose, your relationships and how you interact with life.
   This is your personal invitation to create sacred space in your life today. Register below to set up a personal Resonance Repatterning session.

On the Journey towards Positive and Sustainable Personal Change

 The journey towards positive and sustainable personal change includes your entire body-mind system. Your awareness, attitudes, beliefs, and sense of direction all make a difference in the process. The emotional and mental components of this journey are as important as your physical actions and decision-making process. Your dedication one-day at a time over a period of time makes a difference based on how you meet challenges and new opportunities.

How to Meet the New Opportunity

   In Resonance Repatterning® building coherent awareness is key to beginning the process of positive change.  The following are some of the beginning elements of the process for personal change in any part of your life’s journey.

  1. Awareness is key and the first step in identifying where you are in your life, and what is coming up for you as an issue. This could be any area in your wellness and well-being: relationship, business, health, energy level, or the resulting effects of grief, loss, or trauma.
  2. Acceptance in this case is not giving up, it is seeing things as they are in the present for what and how they are realistically. In order to create new possibilities it is important to resonate with the change being an opportunity and a point of choice. This means that there is a willingness to take part in a growth process that leads to transformation.

    When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.~Lao Tzu

  3. Empowerment is that place where you become aligned with the motivation and determination to move through new possibility with the intent to discern what is aligned with your journey of growth and what is not aligned with positive change.  Using this tool, you are able to feel the vital life energy to create positive change.
  4. Focus and Attention:  Where you place your thoughts and how you respond to them is key in your journey. Through making time and space in your life, as well as resonating with coherent beliefs, attitudes, qualities, strengths and actions in your present, you begin to create a future with greater vital life energy  one step at a time. By doing so, this allows you to shift direction through discernment when you need to do so, and take positive action with your awareness so that you can continue in the direction of your positive intentions.

How to Meet Challenges to Embark on the Journey of Change

  • Fear of the unknown and losing control: Starting on a new path or creating a new habit can feel so unfamiliar that your sense of being in control can be significantly challenged.  Antidote: Reminding yourself of times in your life where you have experienced a challenge and met that challenge in a way that felt successful can create an anchor image and feeling to get you started on the path to creating new possibilities. Resonating with with new possibilities and the opportunities you will experience with your plan of action is greatly supportive. Know that set-backs are stepping stones when they happen as teachers and guides to next steps.                                                                                                                                                                                             
  • Not enough time to establish or integrate new changes: With the hustle and bustle of life you might feel as though there isn’t enough time in your schedule to begin first steps in the process of change. Antidote: Make time for small steps each day, delegating some of your daily chores, or making room for reflection or planning daily is essential in the process of making positive change. In as little as 10 minutes per day for any of these, you can tune into your process in a nourishing and creative way.                                                                                                                     
  •  Shifting Habits: Shifting a habit takes time. According to a research project mentioned in How Long Does it Take to Form a Habit? ( https://www.ucl.ac.uk/news/news-articles/0908/09080401), it can take 2-8 months to change and establish a new habit based on a number of factors related to your planning, pacing and support system in place.  Antidote: Small daily changes lead to significant changes over the long term. An example is to create a daily routine by using a template to intitate, motivate and sustain your new positive actions as you move through the process.
  • My goal (e.g. ‘to eat more fruit and vegetables’) _________________________________________________
  • My plan (e.g. ‘after I have lunch at home I will have a piece of fruit’) (when and where) ______________________ I will _____________________________________.   (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3505409/)                                                                                   
  •  Feeling uncomfortable: Creating new patterns also involves addressing underlying emotions, beliefs and attitudes about change. Fear and frustration that has been buried might come up for resolution. Allow them to inform you, and in the process learn to be kind and forgiving to your Self, while making space for forgiveness of others, as well.  Antidote: Becoming aware of your underlying need for health and more energy can be met with alternative and healthy ways of choosing. Eating at a fast food restaurant does not meet these needs, however, the need for nurture, support and ease might be an underlying need that also needs to be heard. Find ways to create options to include short and long-term actions. For example, you might make a list of foods you can eat that are healthy for you that you can have at home, take to work, and also options for restaurants or menu items. You might choose a different environment altogether, or look at how to create stress-reducing activities to fill your need for nurture and calm. Journal, draw, move and express your feelings through natural and positive means.                                                                                                                                              

  •  Letting Go of the Past: Making a transition in life from a relationship, job, or move can creates stress in itself. Know that your past has had an important impact on your life, and its teaching allows you to learn from its experience. Take that experience and apply it to your future. Don’t lose the lesson. Antidote: Finding support groups or supportive friends or resources that have encountered similar transitions can be especially beneficial as you move into new territory of your life.                                                                                                                                                                                        
  • Confidence about skills: When starting on a new project, or creating a lifestyle change, it’s important to resonate with beginning where you are, as well as knowing where to look for resources, ideas and information to start your process in creating a new habit or positive change.  Antidote: Take a class, research, find a mentor, talk with an advisor, read, and ask for directions. An example for healthy eating might be the book, Savor by Thich Nhat Hanh that speaks to the body-mind system in response to food and nurture.                                                                                                                                  
  • Impact on the rest of your life: Making change can mean in where you live, what you do, what you will no longer tolerate, or where and how you dedicate your time.                                                                            Antidote: Resonating with the underlying need of loving self-care, healthy nourishment, health, loving relationships, calm and well-being are the over-arching motivation for creating a new life worthy of positive change. Creating new possibilities for your life is not short-term it is a life change!                                                
  • Changes in social circles and loyalty to patterns over time: Making change can mean shifting social interactions with specific people. It can also mean that you stop your hangouts and patterns that influenced or impacted your negative habit, addiction or limiting pattern. An example might be that you are trying stop overeating, however, your pattern has been to have lunch daily with co-workers at a fast food restaurant.    Antidote: Join a support group or activity group that has a focus on part of your process (healthy eating, exercise, grief, creativity). By taking part in a group you will feel support and change feels much more possible. Choose to limit your interaction or number of times per week that you eat at the fast food restaurant, or choose a different menu item. You can also begin to choose different allies or activities during your meal time.                                                                                                        

 Resonance Repatterning personal sessions allow you to transform problems into opportunities so that you resonate with new possibilities to create greater integrity in your wellness and well-being. There are sessions for every part of your journey of positive change that address each of the elements in this article tailored to your personal needs.

Remembering to Breathe on the Emotional Roller Coaster

This past year of change has had some powerful emotional content. We’ve gone through waves of processing earth changes, global shifts in political alliances and power. If it’s felt difficult to catch your breath, and feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster, you are not alone! These events have maximized and mobilized response on many levels including personal feelings of grief, disbelief, anger, confusion, frustration, shock, and/or fear. It has felt as if time has tumbled over itself in trying to get us to process personal feelings, thoughts and beliefs. At times like these remembering to breathe is important!

Breathing patterns give clues to emotions and feelings. You can measure a shift in breathing when you are excited, as well as when you are worried. Trauma, shock, disease or pain interrupts the natural flow of your breath and vitality. When we get stuck in a breathing pattern even when the reason for an earlier experience is no longer present, it’s a clue that feelings have not been released. Processing feelings with the support of breath helps to move through these experiences to resolution.

The quality of your breathing patterns affects the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange essential to life-activity in the body down to the cellular level, impacts the emotional brain, synchronizes brain waves, and controls your mental state. When you are frightened, you gasp or hold your breath. When you are stressed or worried, you sigh, have a shallow or collapsed breathing pattern after the exhale, or a blocked inhale. Exhaling to release or inhaling to start a new breath cycle pattern is the goal.

Following are two breathing exercises to support the release of feelings and the creation of new images for greater relaxation and harmony. You can practice them together or use each one on its own.

1. Feeling Breath

  • Get in touch with your breathing pattern. *Inhale through your nose. Each time you inhale, breathe in pure energy allowing your stomach to expand like a balloon, including your ribs front to back and side to side. Fill your lungs. As you exhale through your nose, relax your lungs and ribs from the top and middle. Pull in your abdominal muscles, exhaling all the air from the bottom of your lungs. Do this a few times.
  • Become aware of what you are feeling. Continuing to breathe deeply and easily as you accept these feelings as messengers for processing material for insight, illumination and resolution.
  • When you are aware of what you are feeling, say what you are feeling out loudas you continue to breathe deeply and easily.
  • When you have acknowledged your feelings out loud, continue to relax while releasing the named feeling when you exhale. You can say, “I release my feeling of__________”  as you breathe out.
  • You can breathe out emotional and physical toxins with this process also. Continue breathing with a focus on inhaling pure energy and exhaling emotions until you feel complete.

This nurturing relationship with the ocean of air you are breathing creates chi or prana to feed every cell of your body. When your breathing patterns are in balance and harmony, the benefits range from decreasing adrenaline flow when in a stressful situation, improving the quality of your vitality, better sleep, lowering your blood pressure, and greater heart health. Giving attention to your breath gets you in touch with your center or spiritual core, allows you to let go of emotional and physical toxins, improves your sense of connection to your feelings, relaxation and heart wisdom.

2. Limbic Brain Breath:  Because breathing accesses the emotional brain, doing this modality will give you energetic support for creating new images and feelings. While breathing deeply, see positive image(s) and feel positive feeling(s). Use this visualization to support you in a stressful situation, when you need grounding or need an energetic pick-me-up!

There are many powerful breathing patterns that can heal your life. Here are two great books to explore: Free Your Breath, Free Your Lifeby Dennis Lewis Free Your Breath, Free Your Life: How Conscious Breathing Can Relieve Stress, Increase Vitality, and Help You Live More Fully

Where Are You in Relationship to Experiencing Abundance in Your Life?

 

At this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere life blooms and everything is energized with vital energy that you can see, hear and feel.  Gardens fill with flowers, herbs and vegetables. Trees are full of fruit and harvest.  It is this time that the Earth shows us her flowering at its peak with abundance in every direction.  This is the time of year to truly register where you are in relationship to experiencing abundance in your own life.

When you think about abundance though, 95% of us, if honest, think mostly about money. Abundance is more about life energy and vitality in your sense of feeling empowered to receive, distribute and share resources on the physical, emotional, mental and spirit levels just like the Earth.

Your beliefs and attitudes about abundance affect your experience of  how this benefits your wellness and well-being.

Through the process of Resonance Repatterning® it is possible to work with your relationship with your limiting beliefs about abundance, flow, success, finances and  your vital life energy to shift your perceptions about abundance with energetic frequency easily and naturally.

Everything in the Universe has a frequency related to sound and light including your joy, pain, disappointment, business arguments, and attitudes about life. In a Resonance Repatterning® session we can work to identify those frequencies that have stopped you, held you back, or interfered with your experience of living life more fully.

You are designed for success and self-healing.  When your coherent attitudes or beliefs about what is possible, this impacts how you see and experience the world changing the quality and amount of vital energy you have to dedicate to the positive intentions you have for your health, relationships, business and life purpose.

 

Any gardener will tell you how important it is to take care of the harvest through watering, sun and healthy soil so that the plants will grow to harvest.  Have you ever attempted to water a garden with  hose that is kinked? Like this kinked hose, your life energy can be disrupted leaving you with less energy, motivation and sense of ease to appreciate and explore new possibilities in the world of abundance around you.

Your attitude influences what you are able to experience directly, and it is always the determining factor in the amount of abundance you experience. What your resonate with internally becomes your experience in life.

 

Resonance Repatterning® works with natural energetic modalities including color, sound, acupressure, aromatherapy, Chinese Elements, Polarity Therapy, movement and breath, so that you can move into more coherent resonant match with your intentions to experience abundance more fully in your life. This allows you to resonate with more optimal life energy, attitudes and beliefs that create the momentum for positive and sustainable change.

I’d like to invite you to shift your energy so that you can literally unkink what is limiting your experience of abundance in your life.  A personal Resonance Repatterning® session gets to the root of an issue, and below the surface of resistance to energetic blocks and unconscious patterns at the core of the issue you are experiencing. This process re-patterns your body-mind system to create more optimal life energy and new possibilities for life-enhancing patterns that manifest abundance naturally.

Change Your Mind, Change Your World: Ways to Create Freedom from Negative Thoughts

“For things to reveal themselves to us, we need to be ready to abandon our views about them.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh 

   Changing your mind can sometimes be difficult.  It requires the capacity to see things from a perspective that opens to the possibility that there may be more than one way to see a situation past or present. However, making the time and space to free yourself from ongoing negative thoughts related to anxiety, depression, and fear leads to greater wellness and well-being. This literally changes your experience of life and the world!

Recently, the groundbreaking research of Dr. Daniel G.Amen, MD that proves you can change the quality of your life by improving the functioning of your brain has been included into Resonance Repatterning®. In his book, Change Your Brain, Change Your Life,  he suggests that there is a tendency in life to move into what he terms, ANT’s, or Automatic Negative Thoughts. These ANT’s affect how your body responds to light, assimilates energy, controls neurotransmitters activated, and affects the communication between all the systems of the body. In fact, heart rate changes, breath becomes more shallow, blood pressure goes up and you access less of your problem-solving brain when you are in the rut with negative thoughts.

 Thoughts are very powerful. They can make your mind and your body feel good or they can make you feel bad. Every cell in your body is affected by every thought you have. ~ Dr. Daniel G. Amen, MD

Beginning to Change the Way You Think

Dr. Amen suggests that one of the ways to begin making the shift from the view of what you think is true, is to notice how you are reinforcing the view that you are keeping. Does your view keep you focusing on the negative, making it seem that it is someone else who is at fault, and keep you feeling as though you have no power to change the situation? Does your perception of a situation keep you in a worry cycle or make you feel guilty? Does your view limit your potential to see beyond what you think is obvious by labeling the situation or person based on what has happened in your life in the past? Are you seeing through the lens of “all or nothing”?

Getting stuck in the past through holding on to emotional pain, being stuck in a current situation or relationship that creates great stress, or fearing the possible future through extreme worry keeps the gerbil wheel of fight, flight or stuck in place. By looking at your beliefs about a situation or relationship more closely, you can open the doorway to new possibilities and solutions. This leads to an expanded sense of well-being, freedom and opportunity for feeling better.

Another way to view your thoughts comes from the work of Byron Katie who encourages people to ask themselves four questions when they become aware of ongoing or repetitive negative thoughts.

  1. Is it true? (Is the stressful or negative thought true?)
  2. Can I absolutely know that it is true?
  3. How do I react when I believe that thought?
  4. Who would I be without the thought? Or how would I feel if I didn’t have the thought?

When complete with this first round of questions, she then asks that you take the opposite of the negative thought that is causing you distress, and ask yourself, “Is this thought not true, or is it even more true?” With this information gathered, the next step is to ask yourself how the opposite of the thought applies to yourself and if another person is involved, how does the opposite apply to them also?

It all depends on how we look at things, and not how they are in themselves. ~Carl Jung

 The Institute of Heartmath works with creating greater coherence between the heart, brain and body. When you are stressed out, angry, upset, or feel like you are at a loss for next steps, you lose access to all of your whole brain capacity for thinking. In fact, when you are upset you are more likely to be coming from your emotional brain. When scared you are likely to be coming from your fight-or-flight brain. You lose access to your thinking and problem solving capacity.

    Focusing on breathing into your heart and anchoring an image of gratitude, joy, love or compassion within helps you to move back up the brain stem so that you can get access to your full functioning. Through this simple process, the Barr System is activated which expands both the electromagnetic field of the heart and brain. With this in place, the systems of the body entrain, and problem-solving improves.  This leads to a greater sense of independence and choice in your life!

Here Comes the Sun: How Light Has a Positive Impact on Your Wellness and Well-being

 

  As the sun returns to the Northern Hemisphere, and we move into summer, it’s important to acknowledge the importance of how light positively impacts your wellness and well-being.

 

 

 

 

Impact on Your Vision and Energy

The quality of light you receive affects your breath, posture, movement,and memory. It is important to note that physical vision is also related to how you process light for emotional, mental and physical health and well-being.

For more on this topic: http://www.windowstotheheart.net/what-impacts-your-vision-of-life-four-ways-to-positive-change/

Natural light has shown to have an impact on sleep patterns, melatonin production, memory, mood regulation, thought processing, free radical production, cellular communication, and heart health.

Impact on Your Cells and DNA

Cell to cell communication by bio-photons has been seen in plants, bacteria, animal neutrophil granulocytes  that digest invading microbes. Granulocytes account for about 60% of your white blood cells. Kidney cell communication was also noted. Particular spectral light stimulation (infrared, red, yellow, blue, green and white) at one end of the spinal sensory or motor nerve roots produced a significant increase in the bio-photon activity at the other end according to a research study by Yan Sun, Chao Wang,  and Jiapei Dai’s research project: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20221457

 In addition, according to Dr. Fritz Popp, a biophysicist dedicated to the study of bio-photons. the coherent emission of bio-photons is directly connected to to energy and information transfer processes within biological organisms, and has been linked to the function of DNA and gene regulation.

We are still on the threshold of fully understanding the complex relationship between light and life, but we can now say emphatically, that the function of our entire metabolism is dependent on light.           ~Dr. Fritz Albert Popp ( http://www.biontologyarizona.com/dr-fritz-albert-popp/)

Impact of Exposure to Sunlight on Your Heart Health

Richard Weller, an Edinburgh University dermatologist and researcher, states that regular exposure to the sun is beneficial for your heart. He suggests that sunlight lowers your blood pressure through increasing both Vitamin D and Nitric Oxide in the body through the skin. This exposure to sunlight would potentially decrease the likelihood of both heart attacks and strokes.  

Watch his TED Talk here:

The Impact of Light on Your Positive Intentions

Intention is based on directing thought, attitude, belief, motivation and action toward a specific goal. The process of forming, sustaining and initiating your intention for wellness and well-being relates to the production of particular neurotransmitters, memory imprints and especially the quality of your life energy you have to dedicate to your positive intentions. The importance of creating an optimal environment for new possibilities depends on the transmission and quality  of energy and information in your body-mind system. 

For more on this topic: http://www.windowstotheheart.net/how-difficult-experiences-affect-your-body-mind-system/

How Resonance Repatterning Works with Light to Enhance Your Wellness and Well-being

Everything is frequency. We experience life through color, light and sound frequency. Your atttitudes, beliefs, arguments, conflict, as well as sense of well-being are all frequency.

The process of Resonance Repatterning® identifies specific frequencies that are needed to benefit your wellness and well-being through working with different modalities that infuse or diffuse light and sound at specific tone frequency, octave and location of need.. All of the modalities in a session are muscle-checked for most benefit to the client based on specific needs. In addition, the following color/light modalities might be part of your process:

  • Vision Modalities include a number of color/light, movement, breath, memory and relaxation activities
  • Color Filter Lens: The client or facilitator on the client’s behalf wears a color gel mask over the eyes. In some cases there are additional modality details combined with this format.
  • The Color Filter Torch is used on particular meridian and energy system points on the body to update information in the body-mind system for more optimal energy flow. This means that color/light works where transmission of light and sound have been interrupted or blocked.
  • Silk Color Scarves are placed over various parts of the body or used in the visual field to incorporate the frequency of the color.

This is your personal invitation to create greater integrity in your wellness and well-being through a Resonance Repatterning® session specifically tailored to your needs for positive change.
