Did you know that to be considered alive, a food must be consumed within a short period of time after it is picked.

This means that fruits and vegetables from far away countries, having travelled for days or even weeks and which are on the shelves of our supermarkets, are not so nourishing for our cells.

You therefore need to eat much more than 10 per day in order to avoid nutritional deficiencies.

This is why high quality supplementation exists and must be consumed every day. Because it is fair, calculated, free of GMOs, pesticides, herbicides, etc., and supplements your diet in a safe way.

****** French version

Savez-vous que pour être considéré vivant, un aliment doit être consommé dans un court délai après sa cueillette.

Ce qui fait que les fruits et légumes en provenance de pays lointains, ayant voyagé plusieurs jours, voire semaines et qui sont sur les tablettes de nos supermarchés, ne sont pas tellement nourrissants pour nos cellules.

Vous avez donc besoin d'en manger beaucoup plus de 10 par jours afin de ne pas être en carence nutritionnelle.

Voilà pourquoi la supplémentation de haute qualité existe et doit être consommée à tous les jours. Parce qu'elle est juste, calculée, sans OGM, pesticide, herbicide, etc., et complète votre alimentation de façon sécuritaire.

Healthy Isn't A Goal.  It's A Way Of Living!

Have you ever gone over an issue with your coach or therapist, only to have the pain or the pattern resurface later on from a different trigger?
 
How did you feel?
 
If you were anything like most people I talk to, you felt frustrated and disappointed.
Frustrated because you thought you had 'dealt with that already' and disappointed because you now realize it hasn't actually been eradicated.
 
Today I want to give you some clarity on this.
 
I've heard many clients say that they were advised that the deep work to uncover the pattern was 'the hardest part'.
This is meant in the moment to encourage and reassure them, but all it really does is confuse 'the work' with what I call 'the theatrics' of coaching 😉
 
The initial breakthrough is an event, for sure. It's amazing to be able to see your whole life as one big and nuanced, clear and predictable response. It feels euphoric to suddenly realize that the world is (and has always been) responding to your commands and that everything you want to have, be and do is now possible and available. 
 
BUT... that's not actually 'the work'. 
 
The door is now open, but you haven't yet walked through it. 
 
Neural repatterning requires that you make different choices throughout your day. 
The only way to make real change is to create and cement new neural pathways, and that's done by coming off autopilot and choosing in alignment with the new identity and the desired outcome.
 
And that takes support. Because it can be difficult, uncomfortable, and occasionally scary in the moment.
 
 
The breakthrough isn't the work - the breakthrough is the key that opens the door to your work.
 
 
So if you did a couple of sessions with a coach that one time, and you felt like you got amazing clarity but didn't stay with the longer term accountability and support required to actually cement the changes, I want you to put 2 and 2 together on this right now...
 
The value is not in the moment of clarity... the value is in what you do with it, now that you're able to make conscious choices rather than being run by the subconscious programs...
 
(Incidentally, this is why coaches don't work by session - we work by package. Because the breakthrough is the first part, but the support through the repatterning process is the kicker.)
 
SO..
If the pattern is coming up for you, that means that the original neural pathway is still active.
If it's still active, still the default setting, then 2 things aren't complete yet:
  1. the new pathway hasn't been created / cemented.
  2. the old pathway is still being used, and therefore hasn't pruned apart. 
Achieving that requires conscious, consistent, committed decisions in the direction of your dreams. 
 
And that can't be done on your own. That needs support, oversight, strategy, accountability, and a container that ensures you never let it fall by the wayside.
 
If you're ready for that...
Let's talk. 
S'what I do 😎
 
Forever in your corner,

I’ve spent almost 20 years helping my clients live the happy, healthy life they deserve. I’ve also done a lot of work to live the happy, healthy life I wanted for myself.

My wake up call involved, what felt like, a total collapse of my life. Fear and worry had taken control. I was paralyzed to take action and my health suffered immensely. Prioritizing self-care, and finding compassion for myself helped me regain ME. I’m feeling the best I’ve ever felt and I’m taking on more then every before!

 

My Story

Like most women, I’ve struggled with body image and my relationship with food since childhood. I grew up with fears about getting fat, not achieving enough, and not being good enough in general.

Fears and worry took their toll on all areas of my life. I always thought of myself as generally healthy and strong, but really my health was up and down. I had been living with significant inflammatory conditions like eczema, thyroid disease, and IBS since elementary school.

On top of rash prone, angry skin, I struggled with poor digestion—stomach pain, bloating, and urgent needs for the bathroom were almost a daily occurrence. It never occurred to me that these were all symptoms of a greater problem.

Implementing my own knowledge, prioritizing self-care, and finding compassion for myself helped me regain my best self. Foods helped to heal, nourish, and actually increase my self worth. Changing my diet and my relationship with food made a significant difference in the way I felt about myself, and improved my skin and my digestion.

I’ve learned that there are healthy ways to deal with life’s ups and downs. It is possible to live authentically. It all starts with self-care and taking the time to show yourself loving kindness.

It took methodic steps—they might have been small, but they were steps nevertheless. It took me zoning in and committing to myself. It also meant facing fear. Bit by bit it all started to come together. Using strategies like whole foods, exercise, mindfulness and bioenergetics. It took the choice to live fully and to challenge myself, even when I felt discomfort. Slowly, I was able to love and accept myself. What everyone else saw in me, I began to see. 

I’ve reconnected to my authentic self, I’ve implemented powerful tools for dealing with fear, and I feel healthy and strong. I’ve carved a new path for my life. I am embracing change. I still feel scared at times—that is part of life and living—but I am more certain and confident. I feel resilient. I feel joy.

When you show loving kindness to yourself, it’s so much easier to show love and kindness to others. Everyone in your world will be impacted. Know that through the power of intention you have the capacity to evoke powerful change. When you impact others in a positive way, it spirals right back.

Hey loves!
 
I'm here this week with a little revelation that's been landing well with my 1-1 clients of late, and that is why your daily affirmations may not be working as fast or as accurately (or at all..) as you'd like...
 
As much as I love context, analogy and long-winded storytelling, this issue is pretty frustrating for people so I'm just going to get to the point: Your subconscious works harder than you.
 
Your childhood programming is like your 'default setting'. It's the autopilot your system runs on 24hrs a day.. so if your default settings look anything like this:
 
-life is hard
-money is scarce
-you have to trade hours for money
-making more money means less time with family
-there's no space for me
-my needs aren't important
-something always goes wrong
 
...then taking a few minutes a day to repeat new beliefs (verbally, mentally or written) is barely going to make a dent.
 
95% of your day is handled by the subconscious. Therefore, interrupting your autopilot settings (and their associated scripts) will be vastly more effective than regular (but comparatively small) affirmation-interludes.
 
To clarify:  
It's your 10mins of affirmations, against your subconscious working to your old programming for the other 23hrs and 50mins a day.
No competition. Total knockout.
 
Box, Boxing Match, Kangaroo, Boxing Gloves, Sport
 
 
The subconscious mind is always working to make sure your world confirms to your stories, by deleting, distorting and generalizing the data you receive from the environment. If you want 'evidence of your new beliefs' to show up... you have to commit to the belief FIRST.. so that the brain will let the evidence past your filters.
 
E.g. if you want to see proof that you're financially safe and supported, you have to believe it first.
 
Now, some of you might think that's hard. But it's not actually hard, it just requires a committed decision and a little determination. 
If you'd like more info on this, simply download my free pdf on how to change beliefs from the resources page on my website.
 
So...
 
I said above that a better option would be to interrupt your autopilot settings as they happen, so that your subconscious doesn't have such a massive lead.
 
Here's how:
 
  1. Recognize your more 'unpleasant' emotions as an indicator that you have an out-of-control narrative going on in your head. Ask yourself: 'What am I making this mean?' to find the story you're telling, and choose another. Pick something that helps you connect with an emotion that supports you and gets you into alignment with the life you want.
  2. C​heck in with yourself throughout the day. Ask yourself how you're feeling, and if you need anything. Be a good caretaker and get yourself what you need so that your system learns to trust you. A nervous system working from the idea that 'I don't get my needs met' will always be some level of anxious or upset. Meet the needs = relieve the panic.
  3. Keep a note of how you're meeting your needs, and seek to upgrade your methods over time. Small, incremental progress is perfectly fine. An example of an upgrade would be: If you currently deal with work stress by taking yourself to starbucks for a super venti mocha chocha vodka valium vanilla frappe with extra whip and four kinds of sprinkles... consider walking a little further to a different cafe so that you get more breathing, moving and sunshine time, and order something a little less inflammatory each day... 😉 
  4. Consciously take on the idea that your autopilot settings (anger, fear, rejection, sugar...) are a PATTERN, they are not an IDENTITY. What I mean by that is to stop hiding behind identity-statements like 'I have money issues', 'I am scared to leave my job', 'I have no luck with men' and get familiar with the truth, which may be that you've decided not to stress about money, because the stress patterns didn't create more income. You've decided to re-examine your old beliefs about jobs being the 'safe' option, and you've decided to focus on raising your standards for a partner so that you can feel excited about dating again. 
  5. Get help. A coach is there to see the aspects of your programming that are in your psychological blindspots. Invest in catching them NOW, so that they don't keep derailing your amazing dreams for the future! 
I hope that was helpful, as always I love to hear what you thought so drop a comment or question anytime. 
 
Forever in your corner,
Sarah xo

Allow yourself to be fully seen as this will empower you and ignite your remembrance of a shared sacred trust freeing you from personal expectations. You are being asked to embody all that you are today, bringing profound insights through your shared purpose and relationships with others who are willing to be in their truth and integrity about the light and shadow aspects they perceive in themselves.

This just made my day! A real tesla device.

It's incredible to me how long we have had the knowledge and technology to heal the body.

This device was made in the 1940s and used bio-energetic understanding to creat cellular homeostasis and therefore cellular healing.

I love frequency-based work. Every day I am inspired to learn more and more through the power of bioenergetics.

 

 

Over the years, I’ve come to embrace a different understanding of the meaning of true freedom. It’s been powerful and liberating for me and for others who come to share this lens, including many patients with whom I work.  Instead of true freedom requiring us to find a way OUT of our current moments, feelings or experiences, I’ve discovered that it instead invites us to turn down the volume on our thinking minds and practice tuning into our own feelings, bodies, and energy IN the moment. 

 

How many of you have experienced anxiety, illness, cancer, a job you hate or a relationship in which you’re unhappy? Or perhaps you’ve felt gripped with fear, anger, grief or overwhelm about the political climate swirling around you? Or maybe you find that when you look around, all you can notice is what’s wrong in your life or the world? The list could go on, right?

 

Well, I’ve experienced all these things, too. And for many years, when these experiences showed up for me, I was convinced that the way to find relief was to get myself out of those experiences so I could stop feeling whatever I was feeling and get to a different moment in my life. I was certain that once I got to a different, more right moment, I would feel better and I could REALLY start living. But you know what happened? More experiences showed up that were not the experiences I necessarily wanted. It turned out to be more difficult to reach that elusive, right moment of the future.

 

Things changed for me when I started playing with staying IN the present moment of the experience, sometimes for only seconds at a time in the beginning. I discovered that my mind was highly skilled in thinking about my feelings, but not gifted in actually feeling them! The more my mind tried to convince me I didn’t need to or shouldn’t feel the way I was feeling, the louder those feelings became. What a strange, counterintuitive realization that was for me!

 

I’ve discovered these same counterintuitive results about all the seemingly unwanted experiences that show up in my life, even cancer. The more my mind tells me all the reasons why my current situation is wrong, the more pressure I feel to hurry up and find the solution. The tricky part is that when my thinking mind is attempting to run the show on her own, oh, baby, it’s not so pretty! It’s always accompanied by a certain level of urgency and panic to find the quickest way to get myself out of the very unwanted situation I’m in and away from the very feelings that are present in me.

 

Who knew it would be so powerful to drop below the surface of all my thinking in the moment and turn towards the emotions to meet them rather than fight against them?! As I practiced this more, I was surprised to find that unwanted feelings like anxiety, overwhelm, confusion or even a sense of wrongness that I had commonly resisted suddenly began to ease. It was as if they had been waiting to be acknowledged and allowed and not made wrong for all these years...and it was happening:-) I discovered that they had been offering me a gift by showing up and I began to give them the gift of acknowledgment in return.

 

And guess what, peeps? This is universally true and applies to everyone! When we drop below the surface of our perpetual thinking and tune into our body, feelings and energy IN the moment, we tap into a wisdom that’s been there all along. A peaceful center resides alongside this wisdom within and is available to us no matter what our outside circumstances.  Do you see how this suddenly offers us true freedom in a way that isn’t possible when we are attempting to get out of the current moment? Isn’t that an amazing paradigm shift??!! This is exactly why I teach the simple tools to help people tap into this inner wisdom and peace by tuning in to the very moment in which they find themselves.

  

I invite you to join me in learning how to play with dropping below the surface of all the thinking and coming back home to your body and emotions in this moment. What if this begins to transform your experience of the very moment you are in?

 

Warmly,

Dr. Emily Colwell
