In the spirit of last month’s Academy Awards, I invite you to find some levity and humour in choosing your own Academy Award winning picks from the internal movies you make based on your past, and how effectively they scare the heck of you Now and in the Future.
Hollywood rolls out its red carpet annually to celebrate the best movies of the year. We roll out our own red carpet daily to rewatch our favourite scary inner movies from all years past. In fact we love these upsetting movies so much that we remake them for our future. I mean, we must love them, right? We bring in new actors, new props, and new locations, but we always return to that same old script that we’ve been carrying around since childhood.
Here are the nominees for Best Scary Inner Movie:
IN THE PAST CATEGORY (0 – 2012) (see note for voting instruction):
1. You Are Not Good Enough
2. You Are Stupid
3. Shut Up … Children Should Be Seen And Not Heard
4. They Don’t Love Me
5. Money Doesn’t Grow On Trees.
Note to Voter: Those exact words may or may not have been said directly to you. But you created an inner movie based on the feeling behind those words — e.g., what happened to you, what you witnessed, and what you make that mean about you … a great lead-in for our next category of very creative upcoming films:
IN THE FUTURE CATEGORY (still in production)
(see note for voting instruction):
1. I Am Not Good Enough
2. I Am Stupid
3. I’m Not Worth Listening To And I Feel Invisible
4. I Will Never Find A Life Partner
5. There Is Never Enough And I Need To Work Harder.
Note to Voter: Notice the correlation between the first 2 categories (hint … check the corresponding colours).
Here are the nominees for the best leading actor/actress
in all categories:
Next year’s films are now in the making. If you’re ready to try a new film genre instead of reworking the old horror shows, then give me a call. I have helped many fledgling writers and actors produce award-winning work that vaults them into new uplifting categories such as I Rock My World, I Am Brilliant, People Value My Opinions, I Love Me, and Money Is My Friend.
Call me at 604-885-9793 or email me to arrange for your free 20-minute phone consultation. I can answer your questions and we can take it from there.
E.F.T. ( Emotional Freedom Techniques ) is a wonderful modality for eliminating fear. It is a simple approach that uses our finger tips and the focussed awareness of our thoughts while tapping on specific acu-points on our body.
Many of us have had unresolved issues for so long that the suffering becomes our norm and we get bogged down with symptoms.
EFT helps us to go underneath and tap into the deeper part of us that somehow got disconnected from joy, peace and creativity.
For example, if fear is the norm and I am checking in to see what I need to remember to be afraid of … I am probably limiting my awareness to the fear. If I am doing this over and over every day, I will create a patterned response and it will affect my wellness.
I can use EFT on the fearful thought and see what exists under the belief.
Fear is a representation of an anchored memory to an unhealed experience. If something happened in the past and it never got resolved or healed, it will continue to be managed as a current event. It’s just like a current of electricity that flows through our circuits. These undigested current events will be stored in our energy system and we may eventually think that that is who we are.
I see these out of balance expressions as a communication from our deeper wiser self. Our wise self is clashing with the fear so that we can feel it, and then heal it.
Asking to be
Life without familiar pain and suffering is possible. Please explore new thoughts even if they seem foreign and miraculous. EFT is a way to freedom in our busy world and even though it might sound too good to be true, what have you got to lose? Maybe your fear is what you might lose
Until March 15th 2013, I am offering a Dip Your Toe Special, where I invite you to learn a new way to be You.
January brings us around once again to assess where we are at with our creations.
We are all at choice points when we rub up against inner conflict that will ultimately show up as outer conflict. Our exterior world will always represent where we are disconnected from ourselves on the inside, whether it is work, family, close relationships, friends, health, money — or our emotions.
Often we will find the same trend in our family of origin and childhood dynamics that has been a pattern building on itself for decades. Inner personal awareness of these patterns is an excellent observation. It is what we choose to do with our awarenesses that is key and from there we can witness our participation from a Soul perspective.
We have two options:
Know What We DO Want and focus on this
Know What We DON’T Want and focus on that
If we choose the second path — focusing on what we DON’T want — then more of the very thing we don’t want will manifest. You know the old saying, “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got”.
Sometimes we avoid our pain in the hopes that it will just go away. For example, we trip and fall and get a deep cut with dirt and gravel in it. We clean the wound so it can heal. Later we realize that we didn’t remove all the gravel and dirt …with a bit of pressure we notice a little pain, but nothing we can’t handle. So our beautiful body creates a protective shield around the dirt in the form of a callus. It still hurts if we press on it, so we avoid “touching the sore spot” and put up with the pain. Then some time later, out of the blue, that old bump under the skin flares up and festers. If we want to heal we must open up the old wound, give it a proper cleaning to release the old dirt and then we heal.
We do crazy things with our emotional wounds. We do our darnedest to ignore the old hurts even though they cause us pain. After many long years the old emotional wounds begin to fester, showing up in all of our creations as low self esteem, feeling unloved, money issues, etc. Everything becomes tainted and very painful. I call this MANIFESTERING: toxic manifesting through unhealed thoughts and beliefs that we have kept in the shadows of our deepest wounds.
The Laws of Manifesting and the Laws of Manifestering follow the exact formula for our creations.
The good news is that we can look at our past and learn from and heal our old patterned responses.
We CAN change our future right now, for 2013 !
Choose to Relieve the Past rather than Relive it !
May 2013 bring you much satisfaction with your healing journey.
Blessings, Love, Laughter, Health, Joy and A Knowing of Your Heart’s Desires,
Are you tired of the same old Rat Race that happens every December? Maybe you have been chiseling down the spending over the years, and tightening your emotional seat belt and money belt to prepare for the incoming stressors in December…
~ BLESS US ALL WITH PATIENCE ~
Some of us spend more and more every year, hoping for approval and recognition. But our out-of-balance extravagance will in the end create unfavourable consequences. If we are kind only in December, then we might want to examine why we feel so inadequate with ourselves that we need to justify our love by a dollar sign.
Over-the-top consumerism with its $ spend, spend, spend for Christmas $ programming now starts at the beginning of November ! If we allow ourselves to be seduced by these messages, we are unconsciously setting the pace for our 2013 learnings. How we deal (or don’t deal) with December’s gold and glitter shows us where we may lack clear boundaries with our own truth.
LOVE = $$$
is NOT a healthy Christmas
Are you setting yourself up to “flunk Christmas”? Many of us LOVE the warm and fuzzy feelings and adore all the excitement of the celebration. But there are many others who feel victimized and driven to perform so that they can be accepted and loved during this dear December.
I like the idea of seeing whatever is activating DISCOMFORT in me as a catalyst for growth. Good ole innocent December … a fabulous teacher to help us with clarity and boundaries, and thus survive the minefield that awaits us during these next 31 days.
Choose to change it up this season, and notice your NEW NORMAL. Cut back on the festive cocktails, overeating, and gossip. Say no to chaos and drama. Scale back the superficial gifting. Remember that Stressed is Desserts spelled backwards. Check in with your personal energy and see where you get taken out.
If December is an anniversary of pain for you, then have a staff meeting with the ‘Inner You’. Decide what it is that YOU want to create for YOU, then write it down and create from that clarity.
I sincerely wish you a truth-filled holiday season, however you chose to weather the teachings of DEAR DECEMBER.
~ Blessings to Us All ~
~ In Love and Truth ~
- Is F.E.A.R.* the ultimate authority in your life?
- Do you constantly refer to your old “stories and files” to make decisions?
- Do you check in with these stories and consult with the evidence before you go any further?
- Do you stop yourself in your own tracks?
- Is F.E.A.R.* the C.E.O. of your personal business and life?
- Are all departments of you being bullied by your fears?
- Do you constantly worry in order to manage the fears?
- Is worry your all consuming method of recovery?
- Are you managing your NOW through yesterday and tomorrow?
These introductory questions are all asking the same thing. If this is how you are witnessing your life, then it is time to get a handle on busting through these old fear-based beliefs that are continuing to create more of the same. It might start off as one fear that is repeated; over time more fears merge with previous fears until life becomes overwhelming in every direction.
We can’t add positive intentions to a cup that is already filled, and/or spilling over, with F.E.A.R. But we can drain off those unwanted contents and then refill the container with what we desire.
F.E.A.R. is not the enemy; in fact it is a part of me that is constantly reacting to show me what I need to heal and clear.
But instead of looking the fear in the eye, we often try to avoid it by distracting ourselves from it. Think about a minor fear right now. Notice how it takes you out of this moment. It will either take you to the past or the future, or even both.
When we check in with our inventory of unhealed fears and make decisions through the old stories, we are anchoring those fears on a deeper level for future “managing”. This technique only serves to gather more power with the buried fear.
The F.E.A.R. response is a clue for us to go in and uncover the trauma so that we can release the frozen energy and give our cellular memory new resources.
Curiosity and kindness can help us root out those fears and know what is really true now so that we can return to the path of Health.
I’m offering a free EFT Demo (Nov 8th),
and lead to more enjoyment of the holiday season
without the familiar stresses and January blues ~
Here is what Helen had to say about my most recent workshop:About a year ago, Dana was recommended to me about some problems I was having. So I procrastinated and recently went to a workshop she was holding. I volunteered for a demo as I was having pain in my thumb which radiated up my arm and into the shoulder which is a result of using a cane to walk with. After the tapping session the pain was gone; I was able to move my thumb in all directions; there was no pain up my arm and had a general feeling of well being. I was amazed to have such a great result in such a short time.”
PS: Stay tuned for details of December’s monthly Tapping Group at Yoga by the Sea (for those that wish to take the learnings deeper).
