Dear People,

Often I have people in the practice who feel trapped after years of setting aside their wants and needs to help others or to do what they've been told 'they should be doing' to be a good person. They have lost touch with their own inner guidance and feel overwhelmed, overburdened and emotionless. Questions like: "What would you really want to do?" are impossible to answer for them. Discouraged they try to find an answer outside of themselves, but that doesn't give the best results. Even if you don't recognize yourself in this description the interview style exercise might still help you find out more about yourself.

Finding yourself interview style
Don't worry if you have trouble answering some of these questions, if you were doing a true interview, the person you were interviewing might have difficulties too. The purpose of an exercise like this is to get your thoughts and ideas flowing and to see if you can find common denominators in your answers. You might also find more questions within yourself based on these and answer those as well.

It can also help to do this interview with a trusted friend and help each other out. You can of course skip questions you don't like.

What is your age?

Dear People,

Anger and disappointment can be confused with one another. Some people are afraid to say they are angry and instead will say they are disappointed. However, true disappointment can feel soul crushingly sad and can keep us from trying for things we truly want, so that's why it's the topic for today.

Allowing disappointment
Even though I want to feel happy, I choose to feel my sadness/disappointment
Even though I want to run away from disappointed feelings, I allow myself to feel
Even though I don't like to be disappointed in myself, I allow myself to feel it
Even though I don't like to be disappointed in others, I allow myself to feel it

Moving past disappointment
Even though I can be disappointed, I still ask for what I need
Even though I can be disappointed, I still ask for what I want
Even though I think I might be disappointed, I still move forward
Even though I fear I might be disappointed, I still move forward
Even though I feel I might be disappointed, I still move forward
Even though I have been disappointed before, I choose to ask
Even though I have been disappointed before by X, I choose to ask them again
Even though I feel sad/heart broken because I'm disappointed, I choose to process my feelings
Even though I feel upset because I'm disappointed, I choose to process my feelings

Normalizing disappointment
Even though I don't like to be disappointed, I acknowledge it's a part of life
Even though I don't like to disappoint others, I know disappointment can't be avoided
Even though I don't like disappointment, I choose to learn from it
Even though I don't like to deal with disappointment, I choose to learn from it
Even though I want to minimize my disappointment, I choose to acknowledge and learn
Stuck in sad and disappointed feelings that keep you from moving forward?

Dear People,

For a lot of us, it's hard to relax. Our lives are busy, our bodies feel the stress and it seems like there is never a 'break' or a time to sit down. So what better thing to do besides finding some space for yourself then to do some affirmations to help put you in the right mindset?

I write my affirmations in different levels so you can see what resonates with you and what you want to work on. You might start with a lower level that resonates and then move your way up.

Pick and choose what works for you and affirm away (I recommend three times a day if you can manage it).

I choose to find time to relax
I choose to find time to relax my body
I choose to find time to relax my mind
I choose to find time to feel relaxed
I choose to give the priority to relaxation that it deserves
I choose to take a break sometimes

I take the time to foster relaxation in my life
I take the time to de-stress
I take the time to de-stress my body
I take the time to de-stress my mind

Even when busy, I feel relaxed
Even when emotional, I feel relaxed
Even when worried, I feel relaxed
I deserve to relax no matter the circumstances
I deserve full relaxation no matter the circumstances
I feel fully relaxed no matter the circumstances
I fully relax my body no matter the circumstances
I fully relax my mind no matter the circumstances
I am the calm in the storm
I am the center in the tornado
Relaxation is an important priority
Relaxation is a need
