Is Fear Bad?

Love this insightful discussion of Fear(less) Possibilities.  From Eileen Mc Kusick-“Electric Body – Electric Health”When we experience painful transitions, whether it’s birth, a sudden or jarring change in family life during childhood, a big move, or an unwelcome change of job or relationship, it creates a tremendous fear of consequences of taking our next steps.

Can You Tolerate Happiness?

“Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”– Abraham Lincoln Years ago, while attending Overeaters Anonymous meetings to help heal the eating disorder I’d had since adolescence, I became familiar with the above mentioned quote.

Wash Away Negative Energy While You Shower

An affirmation is a short and powerful statement that you say to yourself in order to reinforce your beliefs and behavior. For instance, if you repeat “I am worthy” to yourself in the mirror every morning, you’re better equipped to start your days from a place of confidence and empowerment. And, just like affirmations can help you access sentiments and attitudes for self-improvement and self-love, they can also function as a vehicle to help you release that which doesn’t serve you.
