I have been witnessing a ray of different reactions to similar events. I have worked with people who have gotten their abnormal radiology tests and have panicked and seen the worst possible scenarios and others who have gotten the same abnormal results and have not blinked. I have talked to people who have been infected by Covid -19 and had mild symptoms and yet panicked and have worked with clients who were in the hospital for the covid, and yet were calm through the process. Seen people who have lost their jobs and can’t sleep at night, and have seen people who have lost their whole business and are working it through systematically.
What is the internal dialogue which creates high levels of anxiety for some people and takes them to the point of panic and paralyzation, versus others who work through the process with a sense of calmness?
There is a negative and catastrophic way of thinking when faced with events in life that feed anxiety and fear. Usually, people visualize the worst-case scenario and stay right at the edge of the fear. This way they attempt to continuously scare themselves as if they are watching a horror film that never ends. This puts a toll on the person’s physiology and runs them down emotionally and physically.
Others will face illness, or a divorce, death in the family, an accident, loss of a job, etc. with a solution-focused mentality. This does not mean that they don’t go through fear, anxiety, anger, sadness, or all sort of emotions, they certainly will have their range of emotions, but allow themselves to obtain information, assess all the information, check their fear with the reality of what is really happening, check their fear about the future with the reality of what is possible in the future, talk to people who have gone through a similar experience and then create a game plan about how to overcome all that has happened to them.
How can we overcome our intense emotions first and then look at what can be done?
1. Acknowledge the unfortunate event that has happened
2. Identify and name the feeling or multiple feelings that have triggered in you
3. Recognize the thought process that triggers those particular feelings
4. Check your thinking about the event with the reality of what actually has happened
5. Check with others around you on how they see the event
6. Check with others who have survived an event similar to yours and learn how they have overcome it
7. Visualize how you would like this event to turn out, make sure it is based on reality and not fantasy
8. Create an action plan to get from where you are to where you visualize to get
9. Identify and name your emotions now while you visualize the end result
10. Write down and create a collage of where you like to end up if and when it is all solved.
You will find your strength, skills, and resilience to work through all that life will bring forth.
May life bring you what you can handle & May you handle all that life brings you

Today I like to talk about people who sit in our heart and leave an amazing foot print by just who they are.
Have you ever experienced meeting someone in your life, whether you worked with them, or were a member of your family, or met through your friends, and you know instantly that they are special and hold a special place in your heart?Have you ever thought what is it about them that makes them not only special but also passed really quickly and at times bypassed your assessment criteria and landed inside your heart? And thought this is what humanity is all about.
There are some people that have had such an effect in my life. I have found myself wishing to be in their presence, to learn from them, and aspire to be them. I wondered what it is about them that holds this type of connective energy. I noticed they hold an essence of love, a love that is not attached to one person, but is connected to people. A type of love that holds moral values, betterment of humanity at large, with a commitment to take a stance for what they believe in, and a humility of being service to all who are present.
So as I strive to be and feel the connective energy, I also witness what holds me back. Have you noticed what holds you back from all that you want to be and express?
I noticed with many people that I come into contact with, what holds them back is fear, fear of playing big, fear of failure, fear of actually being seen and not liked, fear of not coming through, and fear of being betrayed by others. Many irrational beliefs has held them back. Lack of self worth or questioning whether they have anything to offer holds them from expressing who they are and what they believe.
So, what is different for the people who become special? They don’t think that they are special, but know what they offer is special and matters. They know how much their love, moral values and attention is worth and they offer it free to all, even to the one’s that don’t want it.
Most of all, they know their vision and goal which is way beyond their personal needs, are committed to pursue their vision, and don’t get distracted by other people’s games, manipulations, diversions or distractions.
What is it that you strive for?
Is it bigger than you?
Does it include the values for humanity?
What are all the ways that you are living your vision?
What stops you from fully living your vision?
Who would you be without those obstacles? or fears?
What do you need to go beyond your fears or obstacles?
What is stopping you from gaining the skills to go beyond those obstacles?
When is the time to take stand for you?
Wishing you to be all that you aspire to be.
The only way to be in every one’s heart – Is to start from your own heart
There is a certain experience of shock when the feeling of disappointment arises when I see a child observe one or both of their parents act out, act immaturely, violently, or viciously. I have spoken with kids who cry themselves to sleep when their parents behave in a way that they have told the kid not to. I recall talking to a little boy whom his father told him never to lie and watched his father get drunk and lie to his mom about it, he said “I am confused, my dad is suppose to take care of me and teach me how to act, but he tells me one thing and then he does the same thing he told me not to do, I feel that I can’t trust him or listen anymore, but that means I am alone and have to figure out life on my own, that is scary”.
I have spoken with young adults who have trusted a mentor, a teacher or a religious figure to guide them toward adulthood and all the right skills to learn so that they can have a good life ahead. Then one day they witness their mentor act out of integrity and unethical. Feelings of disappointment, disgust, confusion, and shame for believing someone who did not deserve their respect surfaces.
This past week I have been hearing many people having similar feelings about watching people who they have put their trust into making major decisions for their life, life of their families, children, and businesses act immaturely and out of integrity with a sense of righteousness and no remorse. I hear and sense feelings of disgust, powerlessness, hopelessness, and contempt creeping in.
It is important to uphold the values that you intend to live by and hold others accountable to the values that either they claim or that their positions require any one in that position to have. Observe your thoughts, dualities, needs, feelings and action. What values are you upholding?
Are you upholding your values and are on integrity in different areas of your life?What type of feedback structures have you created so that you can notice when you go off integrity?Do you come back to your stated values? or justify your behavior when it is not appropriate?
Take the Awareness Integration path through my “Life Reset” book to become more aware of yourself and how you impact your own life and the life of others around you, or let me know how I can be of support to you. Every word, and every action has an impact.Act in a way that you and others can be proud of you.
