Give the Gift of Allowance

christmasPlease excuse my lack of postings over the past few weeks. There is a good reason for it though. I promise 🙂 I’ve been dedicating my time to reading the thousands (yes, you read it correctly) the thousands of pages of Reference Material notes, so that I could become a Certified Facilitator in Access Consciousness®. You most likely would have heard of Access before, as I’ve been using the tools in my daily life for the past 7+ years, and mentioning a few of them in various Be genki blog posts. Anyway, it’s time to pop the champagne as next year I’ll be offering all sorts of wonderful Access Consciousness courses to share the tools and one of the ‘hands-on’ body processes (Access Bars®) with you. Exciting huh!

But for the now, with Christmas only a couple of weeks away, I have been hearing all sorts of stories about how this time of year can be stressful, traumatic and worrisome for most people. Most of the stories revolve around putting on a ‘happy face’ for the holidays even though throughout the rest of the year there is backstabbing, bitching and unkindness between family members.

What if it didn’t have to be this way? Continue reading

December Ritual: Create a Space of Relaxation, Serenity and Love this December, by Making it a Priority to be Kind and Thoughtful to Your Self

womanbeachWhilst the holiday season is something that most of us look forward to, jumping with joy, it can also become a little stressful, frustrating and exhausting.

With the risk of sounding a little like the Scroodge, please be sensible. It’s not called the silly season for no reason. Partying, drinking, indulging, overeating and running around like a headless chicken from event-to-event and shop-to-shop, trying to please everyone but yourself, it’s no wonder many of us feel tired, rundown, overweight and stressed as the new year rolls around.

Give Yourself the Gift of Self-Worth, Self-Love and Self-Gratification this Holiday Season

As December rolls around there’s one word that consumes my mind … gifts. I love the whole gift-giving ritual of finding a little special something that will bring smiles of joy to a loved one with the underlying thought of “I love you” and “thank you for being such a wonderful part of my life”. But December is also the month that I like to gift myself lovely little treats, to indulge in my self-worth, self-love and self-gratification.

No matter who I talk to: female or male; old, middle-aged or young; living here or abroad; religious or agnostic; it seems we all have one thing in common … life can be full of ups and downs. Continue reading

Keeping Relaxed over Christmas Time

Warmer weather, blue skies and summer approaching inevitably means one thing … its that time of year again… Christmas. Whilst the holiday season is something that most of us look forward to with elation, it can also be quite stressful.

Do you find yourself with a massive ever-growing to-do list as the end of year comes closer? Somehow convincing yourself that all those “things” must be done before December 25. Do you say ‘yes’ to every invitation for a night out? Do you get carried away with all the champagne and celebratory nights out at this time of year? Do you notice your stress levels rising at the thought of Christmas approaching? Why is it that we load so much extra pressure on ourselves at this time of year? The season when we really should be relaxing and enjoying quality time with our loved ones. Continue reading
