Drs. Tracy Latz and Marion Ross are here to help. Between them, they have expertise in psychiatry, EFT, Reiki, Transpersonal psychology and more. In their new book entitled Shift: A Woman’s Guide to Transformation, they examine the 10 most common obstacles in women’s lives: feeling unloved, guilt and shame, abandonment, anger and resentment, self-definition, lack of self-love, powerlessness, heartache, fear of the unknown and stress. For each, they start by creating an awareness of what the issue is about, and then give you the tools to get past them and get unstuck. Stories of real people overcoming each obstacle inspire and show how it really can be done.

Roger Sperry (Nobel Prize Winner for Science in 1981) conducted the “split-brain” experiments and found that it is the right hemisphere of the brain that manages our intuition, nonverbal mind, subconscious, and abstract information. The right side of our brain uses feeling which can’t be expressed in words, is ‘big picture’-oriented, and where imagination exists. It rules our symbols and images, sense of present and future, philosophy and spirituality, and is where we hold our ability to “get it” (i.e. meaning) as well as spatial relationships. When we experience our “sixth sense”, extrasensory perception, fantasies we are using our ‘right brain’. This is the area of our brain that presents us with possibilities and is risk taking. You can see where development of this area of brain functioning could be crucial to any entrepreneur.
Our left hemisphere, on the other hand… or brain, controls brain functions that handle concrete knowledge and uses logic. The left side of our brain is detail-oriented, facts-ruled, and uses words and language. It is our left brain that sees only present and past, governs math and science skills, can comprehend, acknowledges pattern perception, knows object name, and is reality-based. When we are in the left side of brain function, we are able to form strategies, are practical and logical, and stay in thinking that is deemed ‘safe’ and non-risky.
Many people (artists excluded) tend to make business or other decisions from the factual information relating to a topic from the left-brain, without jumping into the pool of other relevant information coming [Read more…] about Intuition- The True Wisdom in Business (Part 2)

What is the key to happiness? Is it already at our door and we just don’t recognize it? Is it a frame of mind, a stage in life, an unreachable goal?
The keys to experiencing happiness are not really such a mystery- but it takes some honesty with one’s self and a willingness to shift one’s perceptions or patterns. Here are a few tips that assist with experiencing an increase in your joy & happiness:
1. Live in the moment– When we are constantly focusing on what happened in the past or worrying about what might occur in the future, we do not even leave a space for happiness to enter. When we worry about “being hurt again” or “the worst case scenario” that might occur in the future, we are living our lives from a place of fear. Fear and happiness are incompatible states of being. Fear/stress also takes a lot of energy and drains our body’s endocrine system and immune system- it accounts for the increasingly diagnosed Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome.

Law of Attraction works quite well… but there is a caveat. You must go within and be aware of when you are self-sabotaging. For instance, if you think positively about how much you DO want the car in the garage, but you find internal chatter stating “I don’t deserve it” or “I have never had something that nice so it can never happen for me” or you have more anger or resentment over how that has been unavailable to you in the past or present…. you now have a big problem.
The “Bow and Arrow Theory of Manifestation” (described in the book ‘Shift: 12 Keys to Shift Your Life’) describes how powerfully we create with the strongest (emotional) intention to create the thought we are focusing on. An example would be a person who states a desire to lose weight (“I want to lose 10#!”). Unfortunately, when the same person walks into their work break room and finds the triple layer chocolate brownie cake and thinks with intent desire “I WANT the chocolate cake!!”, they are now much more powerfully sending out the intention of desiring the cake rather than the less intense desire to lose weight.
When there are conflicting intentions, the most powerful one will win out.

Isn’t it funny how many of us feel guilty whenever we do something nurturing for our self or feel like we are doing something wrong when we put our self first? Many of us feel selfish when we even think of our self before anyone else. Why do we do this? And how do we get out of this pattern?
It seems sometimes like we “give” so much to others – even to our own detriment – that eventually we get resentful that no one does the same for us. Many people who are terribly compassionate to others (to the point of martyrdom) or who have a desire to please others to be liked tend to fall prey to this a great deal of the time if they are not careful. How can we say no to others? Aren’t we taught that we should “Do unto others as we would have others do unto us?” How about “You are your brother’s keeper”? Yikes!
It is important to have AS MUCH love and compassion for your self as you have for anyone else. Otherwise you will be out of balance. When you realize that you are but a [Read more…] about Issue of Self-Love as a Law of Attraction
