Dear People,

The Weight Loss Course is almost ending. I'm not an ending type of person, I must confess. I always miss sessions and clients, although I love the fact that they are ready to strike out on their own. I guess this is why I offer so many ways to keep in touch (Facebook Fan Page, Blog and E-mail).

However, a new beginning is of course also in the works. I'd love to have a Weight Loss Course in 2013. I already started the first process of advertising and I've brainstormed about it a bit too. This year I've had again, great results (not only concerning weight loss, but also gains regarding self-esteem, self-love, metabolism and energy), but I'm always willing to change to find even better results.


 I've decided to work with the Cope Deck for my brainstorm today. I love working with it in combination with EFT, as the images evoke feelings that can be released or reinforced. So it's very suited to the weight loss course, which also works heavily with EFT.

What would a Weight Loss Course in 2013 bring me and my clients?
The Cards have no names, but they featured: a woman swimming happily in the waters, a circle of people standing/sitting around somebody talking and a boy and girl sitting together looking at the sky who seem to have survived a bombardment.

Well, I can easily relate to the first two cards. I've seen time and time before how the course lessons are a happy flow of energy which refreshes and energizes us. Also, water is the universal symbol of emotions and the course helps navigate those troublesome emotions concerning weight loss and body image. I can see how the group of people that is listening to a single one relates to me taking on the role as course leader. This year again, I had to balance the happy chatting with the working ;) The last two years I have worked as a participant too, but since I'm almost on goal weight, I probably won't do so next year. This card seems to reinforce that.

The last one, seems to be focused on how it can feel a lot safer to do work together. I love hosting workshops, but sometimes it's a lot of work to promote them. So I often wondered if I shouldn't just focus on sessions instead. However, weight loss is tackled a lot better together as a group.

What can I incorporate in the course to improve it?
I swear I truly shuffled, but the second card came up again. Ok, another reinforcement that I should take upon the role as course leader. The second card shows the roots of a tree, while the third was up side down, a man behind a barbed wired fence looks away.

The first course in 2011 had a little bit of personal work with me at every session. In the second course, I decided to focus more on group work, more lessons (twice a month instead of once) and personal homework. This third course I wanted to do more roots work. To help people personally with what is the root course of their weight gain and the inability to lose it. I will offer 3 personal telephone sessions of 25 minutes for each participant to do so. It might be necessary to do more roots work in the course as well. I will definitely look into how to incorporate this more in the lessons.

The third card reminds me on how important it is to feel free of this issue. Many people feel trapped in an overweight body, trapped with the idea it can't be solved overnight. While I spend a lot of time explaining that Weight loss is a marathon, a path of living that's healthy happy and balanced, and not a sprint, I think I should also focus more on the results. To do so, we have to face the prison we made for ourselves.

What do I need to know about my course?
A card showing a handkerchief with in it, many different items, ranging from an apple to a flute, to a little cat to a telescope. A card showing a man, standing on some kind of ledge, holding his hand before his face and jumping off. He's strangely contorted. A woman with a blindfold and a lute or harp sitting on a stone.

I think the handkerchief shows me that my course has many different theme's, so everything that you could possible need is in it. Some people feel more connected to youth patterns, while others feel more connected to emotional eating. If I wanted too, I'm sure I could find more then the current 9 theme's. I'm going to check up on each and every one of them and see if I want to connect them more, like the items lying on this handkerchief.

The man shows me that doing a course is a bit of a plunge. I often find it a pity that I never have the chance to offer a free lesson so you can see if this course is for you. The problem is that I don't have the space to accommodate a large group. This is why I often have an open house day where you can see the workbook, try out EFT and ask me questions. I'm going to muse on other ideas concerning this as well.

The woman on the stone is a bit of a muse to me. I guess I do need to know that I need to promote the course a bit better. I haven't done so much last year, but for 2013 I certainly will. I know this course is very worthwhile, so I have to be a siren and entice people to have a look! I have a couple of events in November, so I better take the workbook with me!

Interested in the Weight Loss course or have questions? Don't hesitate to ask!
Dear People,

I already wrote an article about Asking for Help, but that was about urging people to ask for help from your Guides, Angels or Animal Totems. Besides them, there is a multitude of Healers, Advisers, friends and family that are there to help you. Yet, often, we want to do it on our own!

Why we won't accept help from friends
Often our loved ones will see that we need help. They can see our stress or that we are postponing important tasks, because we are not sure if we can do them. They offer help, because they want to help. Either because it costs them very little energy or time or because they want to do something for us. However, most people routinely say no to offers of help. Why? Because we think that we know better then the person offering help! We think that it would cost them too much, so we say no. Or we want to be polite and we say no, secretly hoping the other person will offer again or do it anyway.

If you recognize this type of behavior, allow yourself to accept offers of help and see how your life will become easier and happier. When other people help us, in a true fashion (see the article True Aid and the Quick Fix) the bond between people grows and strengthens. It brings joy and positivity to all involved. If you still can't accept help, look for exercises that allow your self esteem to grow so you can accept that everybody deserves help!

Why we won't ask for help
Besides accepting help, we always have the option to ask for help. However, most people refuse to do this. They have the mistaken belief that they have to do things on their own. Prove somehow, that they are capable of doing things on their own, as if this would gain them something.

To decide if we will ask for help, we have to take a closer look at our own beliefs about help. Everybody has a different set of rules stating when you can and when you can't for help.

For example: some people would go to a doctor if they think they have broken something, but won't go to the dentist immediately if they have pain. Some people will go see a psychologist if they feel traumatized, but others would prefer to deal with this type of pain themselves first. Also, everybody's position about medication is different. Some people think it's wise to take as little as possible (so sometimes they have to bear pain) while others decide that living as pain free as possible is the best option.

When you write down your rules, you might recognize that some of them are not healthy or conductive to a healthy and happy life. Why is it ok to have dental pain for hours? Why is it ok to keep feeling traumatized? Why is it ok to feel depressed for a year or longer, before seeking help?

Mostly, it's our ego that tells us that it will toughen us up or that we can prove something if we don't ask for help, but fix it ourselves. However, rationally speaking, we can see how not asking for help after trying on our own for a while, will only make our lives more difficult.

How to check when help is needed
 When I ask people what they gained by waiting years/months/week or days to ask for help, most them answer: "Nothing". While it's understandable to take some time to see if you can do something on your own, after a while, you should have a pretty clear idea if that works or not. If you have such a situation in your life - where you don't see a solution, even though you tried. Start thinking on who you can ask for help or do some research on finding a professional.

Also, when I ask them, what the better option is: slaving away 1 year to do something on your own, or fixing it together with a friend in half the time or even less, most people agree that asking for help would be the better option. Sometimes this is easy to see: when moving house, you don't go around carrying all those boxes on your own. You know that it would take you months, while calling a few friends or hiring a service makes sure you can move within the weekend!
If you have a similar situation in your life, where you have worked for a long time and the work that remains will take you quite some time longer, it's time to ask for help.

If there is a situation that you need help with and you don't know if I can help you, simply call me on work days between 7pm-8pm in the evening or send me an e-mail.
Dear People,

We all have those little disasters in life: your car suddenly stops working, your fridge dies or your laptop just won't start. For most people, it feels like there has been no warning at all! It usually means that people lose files, urgently need help or need to buy a new appliance on the fly. Often this is very stressful.

However, when living the Psychic Life, you do get a warning and that usually means you live a relaxed life. Most of my warnings go in the following categories:

Sudden urge to shop:
Usually when something at the end of life cycle I get the sudden urge to shop. I find myself looking at washing machines or shoes, even though they weren't on my "to-buy"-list at all. This usually happens around 3-4 months in advance, so I might have a good idea of what I want before I actually need to replace something.

Direct Psychic Flash
Sometimes I see myself buying something new and/or have the feeling I have to be in a certain shop or I see a new something in my future. I then know it has to be replaced urgently and I usually make sure it gets replaced fast!

There are many examples that I could tell you about, but most telling is that I've almost never had to replace something when it was already broken. I've had some items 12 years or more before I had the feeling I needed to replace them and they weren't necessarily at the end of their lives according to their manufacturers.

Psychic Life Moving
Another beautiful example of this type of being in tune with life is when I decided December 2017 that I wanted to refurnish the practice in Summer 2018. I felt that after 10 years it was time to buy some new furniture and decide on maybe some new curtains and even redo the floor and paint maybe one of the walls. I'd already looked for some things that I liked when March 2018 I noticed that the neighbors opposite the hallway had movers going in and out. They were moving out!

Their space had a lot of things that were high on my wish list:
  • A beautiful wooden floor
  • A wall already painted in a color I liked
  • Beautiful natural light due to roof windows/skylights while maintaining the privacy I craved.
Of course I immediately called my landlord to ask if I could rent their space and how much it would cost. Since it was end of March he wanted me to start renting by the beginning of April. Luckily for me I could take a long weekend and have everything fixed to move over, due to having done most of the work before the space became available. My next door neighbors that were going to rent my old space were amazed how fast I got everything done!

While having your intuition tell you these kind of things doesn't seem very flashy compared to predictions concerning your love life, the lottery or your career, it sure makes for a pleasant life!
