Superstar You Are

Feeling upset about something. Nothing in particular and everything at the same time. Unable to articulate, communicate or even know why.

I decide to meditate. Sit with the feeling. Then I start to speak, hesitantly, as though telling a loved one what’s wrong.

To-Do

Today I attend a Life Coach for a much-needed, sort of dreaded business coaching session. We speak about timelines and deadlines. The Life Coach draws a “To-Do” box on the whiteboard. We also discuss ideas, fears and things that are weighing me down.

I confess that I’ve really been beating up on myself lately. I’ve been comparing myself unfavourably to others, calling myself names and believing that I’m “less than”. My mean streak is at a peak.

Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine

Using Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Chinese cupping and Electro-Acupuncture, Sharon effectively treats pain, injuries, digestive disorders, fertility issues, skin problems, sinuses and much more. She also has great results in treating people with depression, anxiety and sleep problems.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. It involves using very fine, sterilised, single-use needles at specific points on the body to bring body and mind back into balance.

Acupuncture successfully treats illnesses, alleviates pain, boosts energy, and restores health and well-being.

Depending on your level of private health coverage, you may be entitled to a rebate from your insurer for all acupuncture treatments.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy using dried mugwort. The heated moxa is applied to specific acupuncture points in order to stimulate circulation, remove stagnation of blood and energy, and alleviate pain. It is also an excellent way to introduce heat into the body where needed.

Chinese Cupping

Cupping is an ancient traditional Chinese therapy where cups are placed on the skin to create suction. This technique mobilises blood flow to the area, which promotes healing.

Cupping is used to treat illnesses, stimulate circulation, alleviate pain, and remove stagnation and excess heat. Cupping offers the same benefits of a deep massage.

Cupping is also excellent for people with coughs, colds and respiratory problems.

Electro-Acupuncture

Electro-Acupuncture is where a small electric current is passed between a pair of needles. Electro-Acupuncture enhances the use of regular acupuncture. This form of acupuncture is particularly good for treating injuries and alleviating pain.

 

Flow

Tonight at an Amber Run gig, I watch as the band becomes immersed in playing. There’s something riveting about witnessing other people express their creativity and passion. It’s exciting to be invited to share the experience.

The vibration of the music pulses through my body. The beat of the drums pulls me in and spurs me on. My hips begin to sway. I raise my arms and close my eyes.

For a Reason

Three things I’m taking away from my Life Coaching session this morning:

1. I’m going to work with the “negative” voice that regularly pipes up with annoying statements like: “You’re not good enough.”

Basic Human Needs

Last night, I read Marianne Power’s most recent post on the six basic human needs. Yes, it may seem like I’ve become obsessed with this woman and maybe I have. But not in a lesbian way. In an admiring, respecting, fellow-blogger-and-self-help-enthusiast way.

Anyway, I found Marianne’s post really interesting. Marianne is regurgitating self-improvement guru Tony Robbins’ work and I, in turn, am regurgitating Marianne’s work. But we’re all putting our own spin, experience and insights into it.

Cheerleader

Some of you will be familiar with a popular song of the moment, “Cheerleader” by OMI. Well, up until Sunday night, I thought the lyrics went something like this: “Oh I think that I found myself a cherry air.” 

Which makes no sense at all but I happily sang along anyway while enjoying the sunshiney sound of the trumpet.

Other People

Yesterday, I texted a few of my like-minded friends to share my most recent awareness. The importance of other people.

Relationships (with a partner, friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances) accelerate our growth and teach us more about ourselves than all the spiritual retreats, self-help books, and hours of meditation and counselling ever could.
