Accomplishments

Recently a friend of mine posted on his facebook page a list of his accomplishments, to impress that doing so is not an act of selfishness. I read his list and was so inspired that I went on to my personal page and created my own list. It was easy, I rolled it out in a few minutes. Then – I must have read that list I don’t even know how many times. Even I swelled up. I am very proud of myself. Why did I read it over and over? Because I felt excitement with my list. No feelings of being braggy or dramatic, no discomfort, nothing awkward feeling, no guilt, no need to hide anything. In fact I smiled – hard. And the thing about my list is these are my accomplishments – on the side. I did a lot of these things while in school, while working full time, and with many personal projects going.

Some moments (days, weeks, episodes) in life can be dreary. And too often it’s easy to focus on the icky stuff, even thinking we have to be better, or just get through it.

What if you wrote out your list today, and shared it with your most personal circle of friends?

When is the last time you invited someone to honor you – just because?

How do you think you’ll be received? What’s keeping you from writing it? Sharing it? How do you feel when you read your list? If you’re having trouble writing your list, it’s time to explore the reasons why you are struggling. I invite you to have a conversation with me about making your list.

Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises

TRE® is mentioned in this months O magazine, and though only one community is mentioned, I want you to understand that TRE® isn’t exclusive to victims, its for everyone (when you come to my classes you will hear me talk about why you too need TRE® in your life. Or you can call me and I’ll tell you why). But this prominent mention is a great start, and the TRE® community is very, very grateful for bringing TRE® into the Light.

I have my own reasons for why I chose to become trained in teaching, educate about, and obtain the proper credentials to become a TRE® Certified Facilitator. Releasing the charged energies that are stored in our spinal column and central nervous system, and in our fascia (connective tissue) – is an important process for Whole Health and Wellness. I hear from many that my passion for this modality really shines through.

Here are a few reasons why I am so passionate about TRE®, and how you may come to understand the why behind the all of my services. TRE® experiences and results – both mine and others – are a big part of the integration process and why I choose to teach TRE® and offer whole of life guidance sessions:

The spine supports the entire structure of the human body, both in the physical world and the communication world. Our central nervous system runs through the spinal cord and there are a number of energy points aligned with specific vertebrae, which react to negative influences in our life and may bring about illness or malfunction in the spine or other areas within the body.

The state of our spine also reflects the state of our relationship with the world. As we involve ourself in negative situations, these energy node points respond to this, and begin to impact on the physical body as discomfort or pain. Prolonged exposure to negative energy means more damage and possible impairment.

TRE® brings about the rebalancing of the nervous system, and fascia, as well as the emotional and mental state of being. Some even argue that spiritually healing occurs and so a higher vibration can be accomplished from unlocking, releasing, and redirecting the neurological messages from negativity, trauma (injury and surgical procedures – physical) and emotional release from the body’s intelligence for letting go of what does not serve the individual.

Fascia represents a persons connection with their mind, body, and spirit – or, everything that is. When your fascia is blocked, scarred, adhered, too loose or too tight, your connection to your universal life is out of balance and blocked. Movement – emotional or physical – can be limited or completely lacking. In response to your thoughts, fears and physical traumas, instead of supporting you, your fascia becomes a restriction.

I believe that there is an ideal version of each one of us that exists as a reality for us to choose. Once you do TRE® – even if just once – you are forever changed. You have successfully taught the body to know how to heal itself, and that memory will always be accessible. The difference in practicing TRE® once vs. committing to a routine practice – especially if done with intention – is about releasing all the traumas that have been placed upon us across all of our lifetimes, in all dimensions and across all timelines – on an ongoing basis. Because every day is a new experience, with a new set of experiences to process, and overcome.

I offer private sessions, as well as group classes -at multiple locations. If you are ready to experience Whole of Life change – schedule with me now at https://LKCEPC.10to8.com

This past week I have been working on connecting with my Root Chakra. With that there is a level of reflection necessary to understand from where it is that I come from. As I join my family this morning in front of the tv to watch the parade I take it all in a little differently. I am thinking about them next to me on the couch and we as a unit, but also them – when they were young and in front of the tv with their siblings and parents this holiday, and what their mornings may have felt like. What was cast aside to make the day special? What was done differently to make the day special? For whom was this truly a special day, and why?

Some of the Root queries I reflected on this week invited me to investigate the beliefs I have aquired, and to recognize and appreciate every person in my family in the same way. My Root is calling me to Action, challenging me to nurture my self. To take inventory of my basic needs and balancing that with what I have. It’s calling me to be present and in awareness in every moment.

I also happened to be reading a book right now called The HIdden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben (I highly recommend it!). On page 82 Peter propositions Do trees have brains?  It is widely accepted that the root network of trees is in charge of all chemical activity, including chemical messages and neurological activities. Trees can learn, they plan ahead, they strategize against toxicity, and they require fair living environments. Trees live as family units. Trees also don’t thrive when they are isoloated.

My Root Chakra governs my basic survival needs, and because it carries the quality of my ancestors, my culture and my connection to mother earth, it requires a present day foundation of stability. It is my job to hold this awareness, to reunite my energy so that I may draw upon the earths wisdom. I am to RECONNECT, RECLAIM, and INTEGRATE. So I explore creatively a few generations back – the ones before tv and the broadcast parades, before big cities and telecommunication, before cars and highways. I acknowledge my present day mood and my beliefs and I honor the struggles of those who came before me to better understand  ME. For this I am grateful.
