How do you get stress relief from an itch?

How do you get stress relief from an itch? Sounds impossible

Let me explain

Itching can bring stress relief if you accept the itching as a message. However, you may tend to want to get rid of the itch and really scratch your skin badly until it welts up. Itching can be a message of stress relief by accepting the itch rather than trying to get rid of it.

Here is the solution

The next time you have an itch, rather than scratching madly, I want you to accept the itch.

If you were to sit in a quiet place in a comfortable position and count back slowly from 10 -1.and then decide in your mind that you are going to accept the itch rather than scratching it, then there will be no itch but stress relief from the itch.

Give it a whirl and see what happens for you.

Baby boomers and Moms can enjoy stress relief by being perfect

Baby boomers and moms can enjoy stress relief by being perfect in an imperfect world.

Let me explain

I experienced profound stress relief on Thursday Jan12, 2006, when I gave my first teleseminar. The topic was “Get answers to your 12 most important questions about overwhelm.” When you are presenting a new project there are a lot of things that can go wrong.

For example I thought I understood how to use the different codes on the phone for conducting the teleseminar. When the call began it was like walking and chewing gum at the same time. While I was doing my presentation (walking), I very quickly discovered that I did not know or was not familiar with how to mute out the noises and how to open and close the line (chewing gum).

This experience is very important because sometimes you may feel that you are not ready to handle a new situation. This awareness should also remind you that you are not perfect if you were ever considering such thoughts.

In my case I did the best I could under the circumstances, knowing that this was only the beginning of my experience with presenting teleseminars. Stress relief for me was experiencing a new beginning. Interestingly enough I got emails after the call congratulating me on the call.

Here is one comment, “Just want to let you know that I really enjoyed your teleseminar last night. Sorry if I was noisy; I was calling from a supermarket at that time, but I’m really glad I did. You were really great and I would call in again. I was taking notes and I really felt like I learned a lot. It’s a great tool!” R .P.

So what is the moral of the story?

It is difficult to grow by standing still. You need to move out of your comfort zone and use the feedback from what you did right or wrong to help you grow and expand.

Healer Schedules Barbados Relaxation Retreat for September

(Mississauga, Canada) In a stressed out world, people are searching for ways to relax – a skill that can be learned according to well-known healer, guide and teacher, Cecil McIntosh. “If you can change your mindset about your place in the world, you will learn to relax and let go of the worries that plague many people today.”

Mr. McIntosh, who maintains a busy practice in Mississauga, Canada, and works in local hospitals with terminally ill patients, has studied the ancient religions and cultures of the Far East. Buddhism, Confucianism, Shintoism and Hinduism all teach the importance of serenity in life. These ancient religions each provide teachings on how to achieve inner peace and outer harmony with the environment and with others.

When coupled with the latest in contemporary science, Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), affirmation, hypnosis and widely-accepted, client-centered therapies, the wisdom of the ages can be put to use by anyone, anywhere and at any time.

“The patients with whom I work come from all walks of life. Some are businesspeople seeking to cope with stress at work. Others are having marital or family problems. Some suffer from chronic physical pain, while others learn to cope with those inner pains that leaves scars for a lifetime.”Mr. McIntosh, creator of the Empty Your Cup® (EYC) Process, works with both individuals and with small groups, teaching practical and efficient methods to alleviate stress. This September 17 – 24, this highly-regarded teacher will be conducting a limited seating Relaxation Retreat at the Almond Beach Resort on the west coast of Barbados in the Caribbean. These daily seminars will take place amidst
beautiful island surroundings and luxury accommodations that include sandy beaches, warm waters, comfortable rooms, all meals and beverages and even a golf course.

“It’s the ideal place to learn the skill of relaxation,” Mr. McIntosh explained. “This seminar, limited to 50 clients, will leave participants feeling more focused and more in control of their own lives than ever before.”

Relaxation is a skill that can be learned from an experienced, gifted guide and healer like Cecil McIntosh. So, instead of just taking a vacation, take a holiday that gives you a system to carry for the rest of your life: serenity, inner calm and relaxation, all while indulging your other senses in one of the most beautiful settings anywhere – Relaxation Retreat in Barbados.

Father’s Day: Hey, Thanks, Dad!

j0400838-2.jpg

Father’s Day: A day to thank dad for all he’s done, and a day to remember all of the important men in your life.

Father’s Day is a day of commemoration and celebration of all dads. It’s a day to honor our fathers, and others who have acted as father figures in our lives – stepfathers, uncles, grandfathers, brothers and close friends.

The first Father’s Day was observed on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national Father’s Day. In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential
proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of each June as Father’s Day.

And what does this special day mean to a dad? It’s a day when all dads should enjoy their children and families. A day of fishing or golfing is an All-American favorite for some dads. Moms all around the world will be taking over the BBQ to make a spectacular meal.

In recent years, retailers have promoted male-oriented gifts such as electronics and tools. Schools and other children’s programs encourage children to make a Father’s Day gift – something special for that special someone in their lives.

It truly is a great day to sit back and reflect on all of the wonderful things that our dads have done for us. In today’s contemporary society, fathers often work overtime during the week, and then spend their weekends involved in their children’s activities. There’s rarely time for dad to sit back and relax in today’s hectic world.

It’s nice to have a special day set aside when we can enjoy the ones we love, and let them know that we appreciate them and all that they’ve done for us. Fathers don’t always receive the recognition they deserve. Some households couldn’t function properly without them.

There’s so much to being a great dad. As a family man, he has many roles – bread winner, “Mr. Fix It,” sports director, homework helper and a guide to growing up happy and healthy. There’s a lot of stress and pressure put on men today to do so much – and to do it right!

A dad can do it all naturally – from the day he becomes a father. He just seems to know how to turn a screwdriver, hammer a nail, fix Barbie’s leg and take you out to your first baseball game. Our dads are amazing people who deserve this day of recognition.

Celebrate Father’s Day with your dad and give thanks for all that he’s done to make your life better in so many ways.

Let go of control and enjoy weight loss

You can let go of control and lose weight loss if you stay focused on what you want. Mary wanted to experience stress relief by reducing her weight but she always seem to put on more weight or maintain her overweight. She asked me to help her solve her weight problem.

Let me explain

Mary was holding onto to everything in her life. “Holding on” for Mary meant that she wanted to be in charge of everything. She wanted to protect her children so that they did not make mistakes.

She wanted to tell her husband how to live his life. Even at work when the window cleaners came to clean the windows she would ran after them if she felt they missed a spot.

Nobody was doing anything the way she wanted it done. Apparently, Mary’s way was the only way or so she thought. I explained to Mary that she could not continue holding onto to everything.

Mary through my facilitation finally admitted that she knew what I was saying all along. However her logical mind kept on getting in the way. Her insights and present understanding now allows her to see her daily problem, issues and stresses from a different perspective.

Mary is also aware of the fact that not only has she been taking on the weight of the world but she has also been carrying (wearing) the weight of the world on her body. This is one of the reasons for her being overweight and unable to lose weight.

So what is the moral f the story?

Sometimes you are to close to the forest to see the trees. When you view the feelings of your challenges from a different perspective like seeing the trees within you, then you have the power to make the appropriate changes within.

You may also realize or not that most things on the outside are out of your control.

I Want You To Be The First To Know

I want you to be the first to know about my Relaxation Retreat in beautiful, sunny Barbados. You know me. I know you. We share a bond between us.

We’ve worked together in the past, and I wish I could contact you directly but time simply won’t allow it. That’s why I’m contacting all of my past clients first – so you will become one of the 50 select individuals to attend this very limited Relaxation Retreat.

During the week of September 17 – 24, I will be holding an exclusive seminar at the Almond Beach Resort on the beautiful west coast of Barbados. Enjoy luxury accommodations, sandy beaches, gentle blue waters and a private golf course for a full seven days – seven days you’ll remember for a lifetime.

Ahh, but it won’t be all fun in the sun. You’ll be there to share and learn. To share the relaxation and focusing techniques that I’ve taught you in the past and that I continue to teach to an ever-expanding group of clients and friends.

Each day, we’ll meet in a secluded location to learn, to share and to teach each other. We’ll learn how the proper combination of the ancient wisdom of Eastern religions, when coupled with the latest science in Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), hypnosis and affirmation, deliver a relaxing calm whenever, wherever you are.

I’ll show you how to manage pressure – work pressure, family pressure, and marital pressure – all of the pressures we experience as members of contemporary society. I’ll show you how to take control of your emotions instead of letting them control you.

You’ll leave wiser, better prepared and completely relaxed after a week of vacation that provides more than pleasant memories and snapshots. You’ll leave with the tools and skills needed to improve the quality of life for you and those around you. You’ll be a better manager, a better spouse, a better friend and a better member of the community when you leave Almond Beach. I guarantee it.

Think about it, but don’t take too long to make your decision. My seminars are strictly limited to 50 people and space fills up quickly so please call or click below register.

It’s a week you will never forget. Please act now so you won’t be disappointed. And I look forward to sharing and healing together in beautiful Barbados.

P.S. I forgot to mention that my seminars are 100% guaranteed. If, by our third day together, you don’t believe you’re benefiting from our gatherings, the full cost of the seminar will be refunded – and you can still enjoy the rest of the week having fun at Almond Beach Resort.

You have nothing to lose and a better quality of life to gain and that’s something you just can’t put a price on.

Once again, I look forward to sharing time with you this September in one of the most beautiful spots on earth – Barbados.

See you then,

Three year old granddaughter enjoys stress relief

My three year old granddaughter enjoys profound stress relief because she can read, to you, four of her books word for word. How is that possible?

Let me explain

My granddaughter will ask you to read the same story to her over and over again. She is very persistent and usually finds someone to read her favorite books to her. She is really excited that she can also read her four books to you, and when she finishes reading to you she says “I did it.”

Mary came to see me and complained that she needs to be focused. I had given Mary specific exercises to do. Like my granddaughter when Mary was consistent and repetitive in doing her exercises she got excellent results.

In my discussion with Mary she admitted that she was cheating on herself by not doing the simple exercises consistently because the exercise required effort. Mary also admitted that if she were doing the exercise for her partner instead of herself maybe she would do them more often.

I guess the difference between my granddaughter and Mary is that my granddaughter enjoys reading her favorite books while Mary saw doing the exercise as a chore or homework. You may think that to do exercises repeatedly is boring.

However, if you look at the big picture you may realized that you need a lot of repetition of small task initially. This repetition of small tasks is like learning the letters of the alphabet and when you learn the letters of the alphabet, and then you can learn to make words and then sentences.

As these small tasks are accomplished you will feel more confident (like my granddaughter) and then maybe get in the habit of enjoying doing and finishing small tasks, one at a time so that you can be amazed at how focused you have become.

So what is the moral of the story?

Staying focused on doing the small task repeatedly with a purpose. You can always find fun in the most boring chores if you relax and look hard enough.
