On Saturday morning, just before leaving for the "I Can Do It" conference here in Toronto this weekend, I was inspired to use my own advice. I was rushing around the house trying to pack and organize so I'd be ready to meet the car taking me to the airport.
For years I’ve said that the greatest contribution we make to humanity is our commitment to grow and evolve – to raise our level of consciousness. The more conscious we become, the more we care about each other, the planet, all its inhabitants, and ourselves.
Last week my sister Kerri invited me to attend a lecture at a local library called, “ It’s Not About The Hike.“ Pat and Nancy, gals in their 50?s, started walking on their neighborhood sidewalks and eventually ended up climbing the 100 highest mountains in New England.
Last week my husband Michael saved my ass. He happened to walk by my office while I was pounding away at my computer’s keyboard, crafting an email to someone who had just written to me with a message that pushed my buttons.
Over the years I’ve spoken to thousands of people about realizing their dreams and accomplishing their goals. By now most of us know that putting an action plan in place with simple steps is what gets us on the path. But, many people never get that far because of common obstacles that get in their way. Handling these roadblocks beforehand can improve your odds for success. Here are some of the roadblocks to avoid:
Change! This seems to be the universal directive for so many of us as we head into 2013. It certainly has been an accelerated period of growth in my own life – a time of transformation when I’m being invited to release outdated structures, patterns, and people so I can take the next leap required to keep my soul heading in the right direction.
Over the years many of you have heard me talk about tapping techniques – an elegant and efficient method for dealing with fears, phobias, trauma, addiction, weight loss, and so much more. Tapping uses the body’s energy system (just like acupuncture) to clear away blocks that are keeping problems in place. As you tap on specific points on the body while repeating phrases related to the issue, life-long problems often vanish.
I’m heading back to Miraval in a little over a week to teach my last retreat with Louise Hay. As I was going through my files preparing for our time together, I found notes from our first retreat. They represent the simple wisdom Louise has lived by – wisdom I’ve been applying to my own life with great success. I hope you’ll use them, too!
