Increasing Your Energy – NOT Losing Weight

It’s a New Year…again…a New Year Most people go into EVERY new year with the same “resolution” – Lose Weight What happens?  It doesn’t work.  They DON’T lose weight. Why Not? Because they try stuff other people tell them to try. So, you shouldn’t really think that anyone can tell YOU what to do to “lose weight”.  I can’t and no one else can either.  What I can tell you is how to increase the energy flowing into your body. If you can change the focus from “losing” something to “gaining” something the entire “game” changes.  You know the game…

Solvitur Ambulando

“You can sort it out by walking”   There is something magical and meditative about walking, especially if you do it daily.  It becomes a necessity. I ran across the above Latin saying  in the Meditation year book : It means “you can sort it out by walking”.   And you CAN sort it out by walking.   Just walk it off.   You’ll be amazed that when you allow yourself to truly experience the rhythmic and repetitive act of walking it will steady your mind, and you can sort it all out… so Solvitur Ambulando…

Cartwheels of Joy

  It is a really great feeling to WANT to do a cartwheel. When joy bubbles up inside of you.. (and it will once you start letting go to let come)… you’ll feel like a kid again and want to do a cartwheel.  Now, depending on how old you are, how much you weigh,  and what type of health insurance you have (or don’t have)  will determine if you will “actually” decide to do a cartwheel.    But if you don’t or can’t do a cartwheel you can remember how you felt when you did or could do a cartwheel when you…
