Help for migraine suffers

If you are someone plagued by migraine headaches I can teach you hands on techniques to help yourself as well as give you a balancing energy work session. I can help lessen the frequency and intensity of your headaches by leading you into the an alpha state of consciousness using breath work, sound massage with Tibetan singing bowls, gentle touch and targeted energy work. I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm regards,

Mindfulness and its rightful place

Mindfulness in order to take root in one’s being must begin in the Heart. If you have decided to embark on this journey of self-awareness from a purely intellectual mindset, you will most likely be disappointed and end your practice. Becoming more mindful, allows you to become your own best friend. It can help you learn to love yourself as you explore the parts of you you’d like to enrich as well as the parts you’d like to let go.

What helped me manage my anger when I was raising my three small children as a stay at home mom, was my first foray into mindfulness. I had promised myself I would not yell and scream at them like my own parents did raising my brother and I. Yet, unconsciously I had slipped into the role I vowed I would never take on.
Looking down at their three little faces looking up at me in total fear, helped me decide I would find the root cause of my rage. I asked my husband to watch the children and I took a long walk. What came to me was the cause of my anger was my own frustration of not having any time for myself. Once I finally verbalized it, I could see I could do something about it. I would find time in my day to do something enjoyable for myself. I equated this with a healthy self love. The uncontrollable anger dissipated as well as the guilt associated with it.

Taking a walk in nature, sitting quietly in a beautiful place, being creative, are all ways of taking time to be kind to yourself. No judgement, just love exploring your dimensions.

Mindfulness and Meditation

Mindfulness has become the new buzz word for people who are trying to escape the rat race their minds create and living more fully. It is a way to live one’s life more aware and connected in the present. By giving the “automatic pilot” the back seat, you can bring new self awareness and peace. Becoming more mindful in situations can allow you to feel more in control of your own reactions to the stimuli around you. It is a positive and empowering way to live. One important way to become more mindful is to pay attention to what you eating, how you eat, and what the triggers for overeating are. So many times we take eating for granted. This exercise is all about experiencing the pleasure of taking one bite of something you find enjoyable.
Before I would begin, I would use the big Exhale, clearing the debris from your mind, followed by three clearing belly breaths. These exercises are explained in the previous posts. Settle into a comfortable chair and then begin.

The food you choose should be something bite sized. Either a small piece of chocolate, a teaspoon of ice cream, a favorite sucking candy, something you will not be chewing. The object is to allow this delicious morsel to dissolve slowly in your mouth feeling the way your tongue, your throat and the inside of your mouth respond to the sensations. Your mind becomes the observer or witness. If any negative emotional reactions come up, send them away and tell them to take a hike. Bring yourself back to the positive experience of having your eyes closed and fully employing your sense of taste and the physical sensations of what is going on in your mouth. Experiencing the pleasure in the moment can elevate your mood. Since this food is something to be considered a treat allow yourself one more piece and evaluate your sensations the second time around. Does the second bite taste as good? Note in your journal if there is a difference. Have a good day!
