Miracles

by Mrs. Smith on June 8, 2015

When you think about it, there are so many different kinds of miracles.

All kinds of creation.

All kinds of growing.

All kinds of making order out of chaos.

Life is miraculous.

Every day, every minute of it.  As I found in one my favorite books on mindfulness, “As long as you’re breathing, there’s more right with you than wrong with you.”

In that light, I wanted to give a shout-out to my “Stress Manager.”

I still think “Stress Managing” is a funny phrase.  It doesn’t even come close to describing what they do… but when you learn their definition of “stress,” then it makes sense.  I shall explain.

Stress = Pressure, difficulty. Think stress on a tree branch.  There are lots and lots and lots of things that can cause stress on your body, mind, heart, energy-fields (oops, I probably lost about half of you there… oh well.  You’re alive = You have an energy field.  Deal with it.)

In our lives we encounter stress on a daily basis.  Some of these stresses we deal with effectively.  Some of them we don’t.  If we don’t deal with them effectively and release them completely, they can (and will) cause problems.  We’re all just human.  We all run in to situations that we don’t know how to handle… Birth (for one)  being one we all go through and are very likely ill-prepared for at the time.
Sorry — I likely lost another big chunk of you, implying that what you go through at birth might get stored away in you and cause you problems later in life.

One of the most popular ways of handling stresses that we don’t (won’t, or can’t) resolve well is to just bury them.  Store them away.  Deal with it later.

Guess what.

That doesn’t work well, long-term.  Or short-term either, but especially long term.  Eventually it’ll catch up to you.

What does it look like when it catches up?

Illness is an obvious “in your face” message from your body saying something isn’t right.  Our bodies have lots of ways of manifesting problems.

Beliefs that drive behaviors, thoughts, & feelings, in directions you would rather not go.  SO ANNOYING!

Babies that don’t sleep at night.

Children that wet the bed.

Pet peeves that take over completely when they really shouldn’t be a big deal.

Phobias.

Difficulties in social situations.

…The list could go on and on.

I think Western Medicine is funny.  I really do.

Notice I didn’t say I hate it – I don’t.  If I’m in a car accident, take me to the hospital.  If my kid breaks their leg, it’s getting x-rayed.

But I think it’s funny that for the most part, Western Medicine overlooks almost completely this amazing world of the subconscious mind and the way it effects our health.  Because, YES IT DOES!!!

(To say nothing of energy fields and the ways they can be manipulated… but again, I don’t want to lose the rest of you that are still reading, so I’ll save it for another time.)

Yeah.

I’m a big fan of ALL truth, and ALL methods of healing that are grounded in truth and used responsibly.  No sense in wearing blinders, thinking one box has all the healing you need.  Silly people.

Stress Management is one of those awesome tools a little outside the normal US-culture box, and I love it.

My Stress Manager will identify the “stresses” that need “managing” using specific testing that she has been well-trained in and has 20+ years of experience using.  It’s awesome.  Lots of these things you simply can’t get to using your memory because, hello, can any of you remember EVERYTHING you’ve ever gone through?  No, you can’t.  Our brains wisely tuck things away that we don’t need immediately… but the information is still there.

Once she identifies the “Stress” that’s at the top of the proverbial “queue,” she helps you resolve and release the issues at the roots of that stress, and…

TA-DA!

Baby sleeps through the night again.

The aggressive toddler calms down.

The bed-wetter knocks it off.

The panic attacks stop.

The self-sabotaging evaporates.

That x, y, z that happened years ago that you just can’t get over… Meh, doesn’t bother you any more.

I could go on, but I don’t really have time, sorry.  Suffice it to say, I’ve seen this technique work miracles over and over and over again.  Truly a blessing in my life, and it seems pretty selfish of me to keep it to myself.

I’ve used her services for years… Including an emergency session she did for me tonight, which is actually what prompted this blog post.  It’s about time I go public here.  STRESS MANAGING IS SO HELPFUL!  She’s SO GOOD AT IT! I’m just so grateful I can’t put it into words.

And I love how humble she is.  You know how some doctors are okay and some are really great?  Same thing with chiropractors and dentists and the like?  Well, seriously, in my opinion, she’s got a Jedi-awesome power of healing, a wonderful gift from God, and she fully gets surprised every single time I bring her positive feedback.  Totally unpretentious.  I love it.

So here’s a super-big thank you to her and all the love in the world for all the help she’s given me.  Totally a Godsend.

If it speaks to you, you can check it out here.

Life is precious, as I started out saying, and I’m exceedingly grateful for all the tools (and tool-users) that help heal and uplift and sustain and nurture life in all its forms.

Trashin’ Camp

April 6, 2015

By far my favorite mommy-moment from last week happened during one of those random everyday tasks. Some people think motherhood is a bit monotonous. I agree wholeheartedly…  It’s like a hamster wheel of neverending samey-samey… And yet, I disagree, too.  Are sunrises and sunsets “monotonous” just because they happen over […]

Day 5

March 18, 2015

Probably my favorite day so far. I feel more mental clarity today than I’ve had in a long time. No, really, I am so much more centered and “well-grounded” and able to handle things going on (and going wrong, even)… Such a HUGE BLESSING! Hope it lasts. It might just […]

Day Three

So yesterday I had a papaya — I really hate papaya, I think it smells like BO, actually — but it’s on the list of approved foods and it just…. sounded yummy. It sounded yummy? Yes it did. So I had some. And, as I told Mr. Smith – “Whoa, […]

Waiting… and done waiting!

March 14, 2015

We spend a lot of time waiting. “Food for patience,” I once heard an elderly gentleman say. I don’t remember now the context, but it made me laugh, and his comment stuck with me. Something about the way he said it with a twinkle in his eye and a smile […]

Those Moments

January 14, 2015

I love those moments where your heart feels full to bursting.  Kids are so precious. The pinching of my arms by the three year old who wants to play on the computer?  Not so much one of those moments.   Guess I’ll have to wait and finish this later… Someone […]
