Can Being Happy Help you to Release Weight?
We’re seeing a lot of books out there now discussing the importance of happiness. Well from a Law of Attraction perspective we understand that the better we feel, the more we raise our vibration level, which in turn puts us more in alignment with our desires.
But how about from the scientific perspective?
According to over 200 research studies, happiness is linked to normal body weight, healthier blood fat profiles, lower risk of heart disease, and low blood pressure. Additional studies in people over age 60 show feelings of happiness and enjoyment is associated with improved mobility and a lower risk of developing a disability over an eight-year period.
Let’s not just stop there, but positive emotions can improve your immune system and have an effect on your genes, YES your genes! Epigenic research has shown that we have the ability to “turn genes on or off” by our environment and our thoughts/feelings.
The Top 15 Benefits of Life Coaching
Before I list the top 15 benefits of life coaching, I will talk a bit about coaching in general. Life Coaching, weight release coaching, soulmate attraction coaching, career coaching, etc, all have one thing in common, and that is to trigger a transformation in the person who is receiving the coaching. There are a couple roads you could take to achieve your desired transformation, the first being the road of going at it alone. This road can get you there but most of the time it will take a great deal of time and a lot of trial and error to find your way. The other road is to enlist the help and support of a teacher, coach, or mentor. Taking this road can actually enhance your journey. Not only can you expect to achieve your desired outcome quicker this way then going at it alone, but you can also expect an increase in your own personal awareness level and increase in your growth. read more
The Night Iron Man Visited My Bedroom
I don’t take my celebrity crushes lightly, nor do I go simply by looks. Character is a huge factor in whom I honor with Celebrity Crush status. My heart is fluttering right now as I think about my celebrity crush – Robert Downey Jr. Not only is he Smokin’ Hot, but he has inner courage, strength, and integrity worthy of his Iron Man Costume.
The other night, RDJ visited me in my bedroom, complete with his Iron Man persona. He was larger than life and as passionate as my best dream lovers. RDJ is 49 years old but in my dream he had the energy of a 20 year old, I am 50, am also quite young at heart; however that night I was an 80 year old woman. My age didn’t matter to Iron Man. He walked towards me with the determination of a lion stalking it’s prey, his eyes locked on to mine as he threw off his mask and took me in his arms. I can still feel this embrace. Holy Hell! RDJ was as handsome and strong as always, it was I, that somehow had 30 additional years added to my face, and my body. read more
Law of Attraction and Weight Release: You Are Here to Seek Joy
Today’s Abraham Law of Attraction Card is Welcome to Planet Earth; You are Here to Seek Joy…
This message, for me, reminds me to be easy and not sweat it! I for one, can be quite nervous at times. When I was approaching menopause 35 lbs overweight, I began to panic. Thoughts of the latest craziest diet fad entered my mind, after that my mind drifted towards the old faithfuls that have proven to work for me in the past (in the short run), all because I was facing the high anxiety of getting older. I kept hearing in my head this loud voice shouting, “what if I can’t lose weight at my age?” Talk about panic mode!
Well instead of falling victim to my panic and my fears, I decided to seek calmness, and joy. I made a point to be appreciative of my life and that included my journey of having a weight problem. read more

Step 5 to achieve independence from your food obsessions is all about Love.
Love and acceptance of yourself, your body, and your journey.
Loving yourself is a very important part of weight release. Love and weight release truly do go together. However you may find it difficult loving yourself while being overweight, and feeling so out of control around food.
You may feel anger that you “let yourself go like this,” that you continue to punish yourself by eating more, not caring, or even despising yourself. Or you may be beating yourself over other things from your past. read more
The Snow and the Energy Shift
How’s this winter treating you? We have gotten slammed with snow here in much of the U.S. I’m not much of a cold weather person but I do love how beautifully fresh snow glistens on the trees. But when I have to shovel it, and when it turns to muddy slush, that’s when the novelty wears off for me.
Since we live on the coast of Oregon, we don’t get too much snow, but winters can be pretty chilly and wet and winter is not so much a ‘Winter Wonderland’ as it is a ‘gray rain fest’. So to get out of the rain we decided to take a trip to Mt. Hood. I braced myself for the cold and the snow, and set out to meet up with two other couples to enjoy a long weekend in the mountains.
A Warrior’s Gratitude
Since it’s November, I see a lot of bloggers participating in 30 days of gratitude. I love bringing more gratitude into my life but at times I really don’t take the time to be present fully to sit with my feelings of appreciation. That’s when I realize that it’s time to slow down, and be more present so that I truly am able to feel the gratitude!
Once we allow ourselves to be present, it’s pretty easy to feel gratitude for all those things we have and are thankful for; like our home, our job, our family, etc. But what about accessing the Warrior’s Gratitude? read more
