I cannot believe that Spring is upon us. Time really does seem to fly. This is such a good reminder of why it is so important to live in the moment because we don’t get any of our moments back. I try to do my best to live in the moment, but the mind is a tricky thing. I battle to shut my mind off as I’m sure most of us do. It’s that busy-body in your head that always has an opinion or judgement about everything. It gets easier as I discover what my triggers are and how to turn those triggers into a mirror of sorts that tells our very own personal experience in this world. It is not an easy thing to do, but it does get easier with practice. If anyone is confused by what I’m saying, this is based on the teachings of David R Cope. He teaches how to really feel feelings, which is something our minds would like us not to do. I believe that for any sort of healing to be successful, this is an extremely integral piece, but it is not for the faint of heart. It is a way of becoming less emotionally charged and more neutral starting with things as simple as being irritated in rush hour traffic to deep seating dysfuntional family issues. My opinion is that if you are new at this, its best to start with the traffic and work your way up to the family issues. The method I’m referring to is the Healing Heart Method.

I’m excited about the opportunities that this year holds in store for me and I’m thrilled to say that mostly I feel good, but I certainly know that stress can make my conditions spiral out of control, so with that in mind I will do my best to remain present no matter what this year has in store. I will do this because I know that it will reduce stress and will help me to experience more good days than bad.
