Wow, I must share this link with you. Put on some soundproof headphones and deepen your meditation practice with these brainwave sounds.
The mind is a beautiful servant and can enslave us in any given moment. Cognitive mastery comes with the constant balancing act of acceptance and choice of one's thoughts.
Step One: Awareness
Awareness of our thoughts is critical. Until we are aware of them, they hold power as if they are who we are. But let's face it, our thoughts are usually ANNOYING! If you're like me, you probably don't want to be aware of them at all! It can be disheartening to discover just how distorted your thinking really is. Example: How often are you CERTAIN you know what another person actually meant by what they said or did? "He was basically trying to say I'm an idiot." Sound familiar? Then there are the fleeting opinions, comparisons, and probably some dirty thoughts too! Fairly funny and rarely reflective of what is actually important to you. "Oh yeah, she's obsessed with me". Being aware of our thoughts puts a big spotlight on our inauthenticities—they’re loud and hardly enlightened. Do not overstep this critical phase of awareness however--it is essential for accessing our power to choose our thoughts!

With so many quick fixes out there, many are looking for EVIDENCE before they invest trust, time or money into their wellness. When it comes to self-healing, rest assured that you ALREADY have the evidence. Don't believe it? Have a look!
3. The Placebo Effect
Perhaps the most evident proof of self-healing is the infamous placebo effect. Numerous studies have shown miraculous healing of chronic disease with the use of placebo medications. Or think about how often your cold symptoms improve before they could have possibly taken affect. Did you know that most Ginger Ales don't even contain ginger? Read the ingredients and ask yourself why many believe this sugar water is in anyway more medicinal than Sprite? Perhaps the belief of effectiveness is as/more important than the actual effectiveness. Imagine if you believed in your own power to self-heal!
2. Our Body's Parental Wisdom.
If you deny your needs, your body shuts down. When you crash with a cold of flu, you are forced to acknowledge your basic needs. Often this means resting the mind as much as the body, and very quickly you bounce back. If you bounce back into the same habits of self-destruction, guess where you'll end up-- back in bed, and you'll likely call that having a poor immune system. Consider its just poor listening skills! Your body is like the parent who gives you the punishment that matches the crime! Generally best to listen and follow the wisdom your body has to offer!
1. The Body is Designed to Heal
When left to its own domain, the body continuously works to heal itself. WE put things in the way. Smoking, drinking, stress, and self-hate are common barriers to the body's natural healing process. You can test this! Start paying attention to the time it takes to heal your cold, blister, scrape or injury. Take note of your diet, your exercise, your sleeping schedule, and your stress/anxiety level (which includes any stress about 'needing' to get better). Add in a method of energy cleansing, such as reiki, chakra meditations, traditional yoga practice, and/or acupressure. You will be amazed at how quickly your body heals when it is left clean and clear!

Consider this: Self-Doubt is an Addiction. That voice in your head, the one that sounds something like:
I can’t… But what if… I’m in over my head….I’ll look like a fool….Maybe I shouldn’t… Maybe I should have…. I’m not ready… If only I was…. THESE ARE THOUGHT-ADDICTIONS!
Every time you indulge in one of these thoughts, you are intoxicating your personal power and drowning your effectiveness. Want proof? It’s in your results. Look at what you have. You know you deserve it. There is no doubt about it. Is the same true about what you don’t have? Take an honest look. You may ‘think’ you deserve more money for example, but consider there is self-doubt around what it would take for you to create more income. For example, why haven’t you asked your boss for the raise you really want? Or why haven’t you tripled your number of clients in the last year? Did you hear your self-doubt addiction come up right then?
Why would we even entertain this addiction? Like all addictions, there is a pleasurable response or payoff. What is the payoff of self-doubt? You take fewer risks and avoid uncertainty, and this amount of safety is enormously comfortable. And this is fine. It’s just not what you really want. What do you really want? Whatever it is, it doesn’t stand a chance without risks, uncertainty, and action. So let’s begin.
Quitting self-doubt is just like quitting an addiction or any other habit. The first step in overcoming this addiction is admitting you have a problem! If you’ve ever been addicted to drinking, smoking, coffee, or sugar, you’ll know that the beginning is the toughest. Every time you resist the temptation, you are a little stronger in doing so. Ironically, it is self-doubt that often has us surrender to our addictions/cravings. However, treating self-doubt as an addiction itself is incredibly powerful, because you are dealing with the truth: That thought is not you, just as a chocolate craving is not you.
Notice the thought. Look at it and call it out. The good news is, laughter is the best medicine for withdrawal symptoms. It’s actually hilarious how much power we give to these thoughts and how often we unconsciously let them create our limits. So please, don’t fret about this self-doubt addiction. See the thought, give a good chuckle, and say, There is no room for self-doubt. Today I choose what I choose. Today I proceed anyway!
Unleash Your Power!

When the going gets tough, the tough gets POWER. I'm not talking about the kind of power that has others shaking in their booties. I'm talking about the kind of power that has you DANCING in your booties! The kind of power that has you inspire others to kick those shoes right off!
But let's face it. Some days we feel about as powerful as dish rag, and on those days, we're about as useful as a dish rag too. And then one day, leads to a raggety week, and then pretty soon, you're wondering what happened to that vibrant human being you used to call you? Or maybe you're dreaming about the fully alive person you've only ever dreamed about!
I work with a lot of people who have instantly enhanced the quality of life through embracing their personal power. Here are 3 tips to get you started!
1. VISUALIZE POWERFUL YOU. Imagine yourself going through your day-to-day conversations and tasks, except being fully POWERFUL. What's different? What do you specifically do or say differently? Where in your life would you really like to be more powerful, and imagine that. How does it feel?
2. PRETEND TO KNOW YOU'RE POWERFUL. Some of us need to see it to believe it. If you don't know yourself as powerful yet, that's okay! Pretend you're powerful in a situation that would seem completely unreasonable to be powerful in! The truth is, there is only your perception and constraints in the way of you ACTUALLY BEING POWERFUL in all areas of your life. Pretty soon, you won't be pretending!!
3. CHEER FOR THE POWER IN OTHERS! Get out there and manifest a world of people living powerfully. How powerful is that!?!
