Mid-March 2015 Newsletter
Hello, and a magical middle of March to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter.
The photo of me above was taken after a makeup lesson, a subject
I know very little about. This stretched me, and I was relieved to
find I still looked like myself. Whew! The contrast of workout
clothes with the glam environment makes me smile.
Today's issue has 2 articles, the first on seeing without undue
effort. The second article is on EFT helping clear a resistance
which hadn't been noticed before.
Vision: Seeing without a struggle
The same brain circuitry is engaged when you're looking with your
eyes open as when you're visualizing with your eyes closed. Think
how this applies to worrying you can't see well enough -- you're
brain instructions of what you don't want it to do! Why
not put yourself back in a younger scene when you had clear
vibrant vision, and imagine looking around at all the colorful
details? Seeing should be a pleasure, not an effort.
Easy does it!
Healthy clear eyesight is easy and relaxed. If you're working
hard to see, this is not the most productive approach. Imagine
a child with those happy sparkling eyes, finding delight in
whatever he looks at. If he's bored with it, he looks
somewhere else. Eyes just want to have fun!
Of course as an adult we can't always choose what view
our eyes are faced with. Yet we can make it as pleasant as
possible for ourselves. Sometimes this is as simple as
taking a break from working on the bills to go outside and
let your eyes feast on Nature instead of numbers. Or you
could close your eyes for a few minutes to rest them, and see
the face of someone you love, or a beautiful vacation setting,
in your mind's eye. You'll feel your whole body relax.

looking habits, consider a

EFT: Are you resisting without realizing it?
Might there be something (or someone) you are resisting? Think
about that unpleasant job or demanding relative. Pushing against
a locked door is a fine way to exhaust yourself! If it's too hard
or too much work, maybe you need a different approach, or to
take a different route. Don't push against a door that you need to
pull on to open!
Recently I had a client with a minor physical problem. As we
explored what could be contributing to this, she said a friend
had told her something negative about her health a few years ago.
At the time my client
disagreed, but because this was a good friend the negative
statement still got in. After a lot of intense personal
work, she thought she had pretty much removed it.
Here's where it gets interesting. My highly aware client
said when the health condition temporarily pops up now,
she can feel herself resisting her friend's belief -- she
does not want to believe that herself! She's sensitive
enough to know that resistance to something you can't change
(like someone else's belief) is a great way to waste your
energy and get upset. So we tapped on the fact that
she and her friend could disagree, and still be friends.
If you'd like to explore your own unhelpful patterns to
learn how to be more productive and happier, consider an
EFT Coaching session.
Together we can come up with a plan to make your life flow more
