Mt Redoubt: Is Your Inner Volcano Erupting?

This morning’s hot topic (literally and figuratively)…

Alaska’s Mt. Redoubt volcano erupted late Monday and early Tuesday in “four large explosions,” sending an ash plume an estimated 50,000 feet into the air, the Alaska Volcano Observatory reported.”

… brought to mind our inner volcanoes. You know, that piece of us that gets overly reactive when set off; that piece that spews anger and loses control!
Before you blow a fuse, spew hot lava from your inner-volcano, try on these
“Tips to Tame Mount Redoubt”
Tip #1: NOTICE: Be aware of what is triggering your anger and rather than going straight to spewing, put your feelings into words so that you can ‘act’ rather than ‘react.’
Tip #2: STOP: Give yourself at least one minute to ‘neutralize.’ Take in a few deep cleansing breaths. Ahhhhh.
Tip #3: THINK: Consider at least three potential solutions to the problem; and then consider their outcomes.
Tip #4: CHOOSE: Now that you have ‘noticed’ what is going on; stopped to give yourself a moment to ‘neutralize,’ and ‘thought’ threw a few options; Choose a course of action!
Tip #5: WALK AWAY: Remember that walking way from a conflict is always an option. Saying nothing; doing nothing is sometimes the more powerful approach – the smartest path to take.
Tip #6: SEEK HELP: If you find that you are frequently in ‘volcano’ mode, perhaps you might consider reaching out to a profession that can help you work it through in an appropriate way and setting!
Tip #7: DO NOT STUFF IT: Food is NOT the answer. Stuffing down your feelings will not help. Write it out (as mentioned above). Talk it out (with a counselor or a trusted friend). Scribble it out, doodle it out, sing it out, let it out!!!
Spread the word … NOT the icing!

Water Day: Drink Enough Holy Water to Frighten Noah …

The Ten Commandments of Permanent Fat Removal: Commandment #7: “Thou shalt drink enough Holy Water to frighten Noah and map out all the restrooms in thy village.”10CommandFRON.jpg
Today is National Water Day!
A good time to remember that drinking water is IMPORTANT!!!!
Because …
We are mostly water. Between 60% and 70% of our body weight is water; our brains are 75% water. Imagine how dried up your thinking is without water? Your skin? Wrinkle city!!! Your intestinal track? Can anything glide through it??? A deficiency of water can alter the concentration of electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, and chloride. Water has a profound effect on brain function and energy levels!
Drink at least half your body weight in ounces of fresh water daily! I know that you think you’ll have to stop at every bathroom from here to Timbuktu, but not true. Your body will adjust rather quickly and happily!
For those of you who are just not into water, try fruit flavored water.
Fruit2O has just come out with a new line of flavored waters that are drenched in vitamins and minerals!
Bottoms Up!
And for those who would like the full 10 Commandments: click here!

How to Make an AFFIRMATION CONTAINER (and change your life)!

Affirmation Container Top.jpgAn affirmation is a form of auto-suggestion a.k.a. self-hypnosis, in which a statement is made about the future in the present tense, as if it had already happened in the past.
Yes, that’s right. Repeat, please … An affirmation is a statement about the future, made in the present, as if it had already happened in the past!
It is a statement or a desirable intention that you can deliberately meditate on, or repeat in order to embed in both your conscious and unconscious minds. It is a statement that transcends time and space.
Repetition opens the door to your unconscious mind. And your unconscious mind is much like a computer. Today, you are beginning to input the right program into your mind. Your programming is called the “I CAN.” Program and it is designed by YOU!
When we speak in ‘affirmations…’
“I am in control of my life, and I am committed to my goals.”
… our unconscious hears the affirmation as a fact that is yet to be and it immediately seeks ways in which to manifest this new fact. Yes, your unconscious is taking your affirmation in as fact.
You can ‘give yourself’ a positive affirmation to repeat as you settle into a calm and quiet place; or you can recite your affirmations throughout the day, while awake and alert. Perhaps while brushing your teeth, or walking, or you can even sing your affirmation in the shower. It works best to recite each affirmation five times.
Such a simple thing to do, isn’t it? With such wonderful results, as well!
And now, as YOU begin to create affirmations that work best for YOU, as you do know best, you can be very curious as to how your unconscious is going to find the right path to guide you to your goals. So often the goals are much closer than we imagine.
The most powerful way to use an affirmation is to say “I am” before that which you want to be, do or have. The words “I am” is your primary link to your identity. “I am” makes a very strong impression on your unconscious mind a.k.a. your inner computer. Be careful NOT to link any negative thoughts with the words I am, I, me or mine.
Here follow a number of affirmations to get you started. If they resonate, ring true, sound good, feel right, give you chills or aHa moments, use them. If not, you can write your own affirmations with ease.
TRY ON these affirmations!
I am smiling.
I am happy and content – and so relaxed.
I love myself as I am.
I choose to be healthy.
My thoughts influence my body.
I choose to think positively about my body.
I now believe and I know that I control my weight.
My new reality includes my ideal weight and shape.
I am my happy weight.
I am happy to be alive!!!!!
(Excerpt from the FILL UP ON HAPPINESS e-Program!)
Affirmation Container inside.jpg
And NOW for your AFFIRMATION CONTAINER:
Materials Needed:
one empty tin (Altoid containers are great!)
gesso (gives metal ‘tooth’ so paint and paper will stick to it, rather than peel off)
sponge brush, 1″
pretty paper, images
glue stick
faux fur tape, fringe, any decorative touches that delight your soul!
card stock (to write affirmations on)
Instructions:
pour a little gesso into any container * use sponge brush to ‘paint’ gesso onto container, all sides, everywhere * cut up pretty paper into all shapes and sizes, and with glue stick place onto container. * if you like, decorate with faux fur tape (just peel and stick) and/or fringe or ‘diamonds’ … truly anything that is fun for you!!!
Spread the AFFIRMATION … NOT the icing,
Janice
