Any time we receive hurtful words and emotional attacks by others, it imposes a sense of confusion within and our energy becomes deeply drained. Our first reaction is usually to take it personally, wondering what it was we did to create this person's anger. It’s during these times that it’s so very important to remember that this is not personal and we shouldn’t take it personally. Easier said than done, I know, but when this happens try to remember that this is a projection of their “stuff”.
Hurtful emotional outbursts, strong feelings and anguish are sometimes projected in our direction by a person who is deeply hurt and feeling like a victim. This is generally a way of protecting themselves or trying to make themselves feel better about a situation.
Hurtful behavior is not excusable on any level so you may want to protect yourself by putting a bit of distance between you and that person. Just take a moment to breathe and get grounded, search deep within and then remind yourself that you are not responsible for another’s person’s feelings. If you can detach yourself from the situation in this manner, you may be able find a bit of compassion in the fact that the behavior is not about you as much as it is about the person dealing with their pain. Centainly, everyone can empathize with internal struggle and pain, as we’ve all endured this at one point or another in our lives. That very compassion could diffuse the entire situation by simply getting to what is really bothering them. Understand that this person has just indirectly reached out to you expressing a need, looking for love and acceptance. Do you find yourself changing the dance you do and honoring that need? Or do you repeat old patterns that don’t serve either of you?
You cannot control other people’s emotions but you can control your own, especially in situations like these. Think about how many times you may have lashed out at someone, feeling hurt or misunderstood, in a desperate attempt for love and acceptance? At the end of the day we are all just looking to be loved, accepted and cared for. We all feel hurt and a bit broken at times. And these are the times that it’s important to look within and find compassion. We can first protect ourselves so that we can find love in our hearts for not only ourselves but for another who is in pain - even if it just appears that they are lashing out. You may just find that love coming back to you in ways that you never imagined. Follow me for a quick 5 minute grounding exercise or for a Bubble of White Light Protection Guided Meditation to keep yourself protected from feeling attacked energetically or otherwise.
If you’re needing help with this, reach out to me and I’d be happy to help you change that dance and find your inner peace and healing.
Love and light to you!!
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

Half empty vs half full is a matter of perspective. Are you familiar with the story of the two kids growing up in the same house with the same circumstances and one sees a glass half full while the other sees that same glass as half empty? It’s all a matter of your perspective and changing your thought process can change your perspective.
When one perceives their glass (life) as being half empty, they are living their life with a sense of lack and constantly thinking about what they are missing. In contrast, when one perceives their life as being half full, they are seeing all of their blessings and beauty around them. This doesn’t mean they don’t both have dreams or wishes. It simply means that the optimistic child can truly appreciate what they have in front of them as a gift, large or small. Let’s not forget that what you think about, creates your life. So while living with a sense of lack mentally, you’re actually inviting more lack in your life, and trust me, the universe is listening to your wishes and will likely always grant them. It’s time to then change your perspective.
Here’s a simple exercise to shift your perspective into that half full or optimistic consciousness, so that you may attract more of life’s gifts and blessings. Begin with imagining your life as a completely empty glass. Now begin to fill that glass with every single thing in your life that is important to you or makes you smile when you think about it, big or small. Begin with your family and friends and the time you spend with them, your home, the work you do, the kids, grandkids or pets, your health, things you love. Now all of the things you have that you are thankful for. Now take a look at your glass and decide if it’s half empty or half full. You may find that all of your gifts, blessings, and things that make you feel happy and smile are flowing out of your glass.
This is a brand new year that will become what we make of it simply with our perspective. Change your perspective! Choose to see the strength that you possessed last year and made it through such a challenging time! Take a minute to acknowledge your blessings throughout a very difficult year and you will surely be inviting more of those things into your life in this new year. It all starts with you. What perspective will you choose?
Stay well. Live, love and laugh like today is your last day on earth!

The old saying “men are from Mars and women are from Venus” isn’t entirely true, but there are important physiological differences between us that we must understand when it comes to health. Women gain and lose weight differently from men, and while we all have the same major health concerns, like heart disease and cancer, there are nuances as to why these are important.
Women have to view their health differently. We have different needs and concerns that, over time, can impact our overall health and well-being. Here are three common health issues for women and a few suggestions on how to prevent them from controlling your life.
According to government-backed research on women’s health, there’s an estimated 15 million women in the United States with diabetes. That translates into about one in every nine adult women. Diabetes happens when the blood sugar levels in your body are too high and can lead to life-threatening health problems, like heart attack, stroke, or kidney disease.
Unfortunately, type 2 diabetes — the kind that is preventable — is on the rise, especially in women. Overly processed and fast-food diets are largely to blame. A healthy diet — one rich in fruits, vegetables, and healthy proteins — is the foundation of avoiding diabetes.
Why we eat can play as much of a role as what we eat. Some people find that taking healthy, all-natural appetite suppressants can help with weight loss and weight management, especially when trying to form healthy eating habits. It’s important you talk to your doctor before taking any supplements and consider other aspects like cost, dosing, safety, effectiveness, and even taste.
Not only do women see higher rates of arthritis diagnoses than men, but often women experience worse pain in common areas and ache in more joints throughout the body, according to the bone professionals at Summit Orthopedics. Women are far more likely to experience rheumatoid arthritis, one of the most painful and debilitating forms of the condition.
Arthritis is a disease of the body and the mind. Stress-related anger and anxiety can increase your risk of experiencing this kind of pain throughout your body. When working toward arthritis prevention, like almost all other health conditions, start with your diet. Omega-3s from fish, flaxseed, and soybeans can help put your body on the offensive early on. Drinking plenty of water, participating in low-impact exercises like cycling and yoga, and taking Vitamin D supplements can all help prevent arthritis, as well.
NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Health, says that women experience twice the rate of depression than men. Symptoms often include difficulty sleeping, lack of energy, lack of interest in doing things (especially things you once enjoyed), anger issues, increased anxiety, and more.
Diet also plays a crucial role in managing depression, but your environment also has a big impact. If you are having trouble feeling productive, consider placing orange calcite on your desk or around your home. This crystal’s healing properties also help us let go of emotional distress. Wearing tiger’s eye can help you stay grounded — crucial for helping you manage shifting moods and bouts of anger.
Perhaps the most important tool in the fight against depression is meditation. Even as little as 10 to 20 minutes a day can transform your mind, body, and spirit. Harvard Researchers found mediation can benefit all kinds of women’s health issues, from preventing or delaying Alzheimer’s to reducing hypertension.
Spiritual well-being and self-care can go a long way in helping women manage health conditions specific to their minds and bodies. That’s why Life Healing Services focuses on reiki, chakra balancing, sound therapy, crystal healing therapy, and guided meditation — all ways to balance your mind, body, and spirit that can lead to a longer, healthier, and happier life.

All of the work I’ve been doing diligently in the past year and a half is because I know that I’m going to need surgery at some point and that point in time was approaching sooner than anticipated. I am scared to death that if I don’t take care of all of this unfinished business from the past, the issue will come back to another place in my body, and with avengence. Boy, having had cancer sure does have a way of scaring the crap out of you.
Meditation is next on my list of this healing journey. Meditation is such an amazing tool for so many things and it’s now one of the ways that I heal myself while I sleep in addition to daily/weekly meditations. Because of the daily craziness of life, I’ve been meditating for years now just to bring me back to the balance I need. If you are not aware, but I’m sure if you’re reading this, you are very aware of the many health benefits of meditation. But you can find a list here.
Initially when I started meditating, I would use other people’s guided meditations that I would listen to and sometimes I’d listen to them while I slept. I loved it. I would wake up refreshed and ready to start my day. Since that time....
