|June 2020 Newsletter A bouquet of different blossoms for you this month: Some changes, some announcements, some things that are helpful. Enjoy!|
1. Messages from Heaven I will now be posting MFH on my website, www.lifepotentials.net instead of sending them to mailboxes although you will get a notice that it is posted. My apologies to the two of you who opted out. I fussed with my mailing list for ages and just couldn’t manage to get it right but the messages themselves will not land in your inbox. For those of you who want to continue to read them, a click of your mouse on the link will take you to the new message. http://lifepotentials.net/category/messages-from-heaven/
2. Announcements During this crisis I’ve been doing two new things. Firstly, I am studying to become a coach for the Brittany Watkins method of Tapping for Weight Loss (and other issues!) using The Emotional Freedom Technique. In the months I have been working with it, I have found such amazing progress with shedding old beliefs and old patterns, repairing emotional issues that have affected me negatively for years. I have months to go before I am fully finished with the training but wanted to let you all know what I have been up to. Soon I will be looking for people to work with for practice so be thinking if you would like to participate at little cost to you. I’ve decided to charge a nominal fee so my “clients” will have skin in the game but it will be a very nominal charge. You do not have to need to loose weight at all as this is really a method for getting our emotional bodies healed and unload a ton of stuff weighing on your soul! Perhaps you are struggling with money issues, or with the drive to be perfect or a struggle with your own inner critic. Or maybe it is relationship issues, or self image. Whatever your main emotional blockages, we can address them in the safety and security of you own home on Skype or Zoom or What’s App.
Second, I found a new company that is creating lots of jobs especially for young people and they make and distribute effective and natural supplements to help us be as good as we can be. I am loving the products. If you are looking for extra income, a new stream of income and a healthier body, please contact me. One of the two evening capsules gently sculpts your body using probiotics, prebiotics and other gentle digestive things that work while you sleep. You take it at night along with their capsule that enhances sleep without grogginess. The third product I use is their multivitamin that contains all the vitamins along with adaptogens and nootropics for the brain. All natural ingredients. I have more focus, and energy, during the day and sleep more deeply as I am getting those deep sleep waves instead of being half awake while sleeping, a common complaint as we age. There is also an awesome vitamin product for kids with no sugar and again, all natural. This is a powder and adults use it to mix up with water and drink as a vitamin water. Anyway, if you are interested in the products or the business side let me know. This company is world wide and ready to explode.
Third. I’ve been doing more painting lately, both watercolors and acrylics, and am just having fun playing with color. My paintings will never hang in a shop much less a museum, but the joy of creating and seeing the colors on canvas or paper is so much fun. I highly encourage you to find something that tweaks your creative nature. Writing, sketching, making up songs, strumming a banjo, humming a tune, singing in the shower…..just have fun! It lightens up life so much! Two of my Florida series are below.
Fourth: I found this article on using green light to minimize pain. Since many of us suffer from chronic pain, I thought some of you might find this interesting, if not an answer! Enjoy. https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/12/15/787138928/researchers-explore-a-drug-free-idea-to-relieve-chronic-pain-green-light
Finally: The month of June is my natal month. As a way of celebrating I am offering my last book to you at the unknown price of $18 which includes shipping. It is my birthday gift to you! Retail price on Simply Color for Everyday Living is $35 for this all color tome that will be welcome in anyone’s library. You’ll have to send me an email to email@example.com to order as I cannot for the life of me figure out how to fix this on my website. Please forgive me my shortcomings in the tech sector. Just send me your order and a way to contact you and I’ll get in touch with you for details such as where to send your order and how you wish to pay. I can do paypal or check. That’s it for this month! I hope most of you are able to return to more freedom as we head towards our July 4 Holiday. And I hope none of you got the dreaded COVID 19 virus. Stay healthy and happy and may your life be filled with joy! Happy June! Until next month…..
“We are all sitting and waiting.” This is the message I received from a good friend the other day. She said there was a Robin who had built a nest on her exterior light fixture next to the family room and every day she could watch the bird sit and wait for her eggs to hatch. It was such a great analogy for what is going on today that I had to share this with you.
I consider myself extremely fortunate in this quarantine situation since I am safe and healthy. Other than my hair that is wildly out of control things are fine for us. If I ever had doubts about whether or not I am a homebody at heart they are gone now. I am DEFINITELY a home body. I am loving not going out and staying home and reading, painting, napping, putzing, cooking…..I am happy as can be.
But I know not everyone is. My husband, a definite extrovert, is being patient but I know he would love to be out there doing his charity work much more actively. He is a great example of how to do retirement: put your skills to work doing something worthwhile. I have not yet retired but when I do or if I do, I hope to use his example as my guide.
Waiting patiently is wearing thin for most of you no doubt. How can we keep sitting on our nests waiting for those little robins to emerge when we have things to do? Things we deem important. And most of us need to get back to work.
I don’t have answers for you. The answers lie within each of you. Your own situation is unique, and each solution will be as well. I know people are resilient and clever and creative and so are you. I would love to hear about how you are handling things and managing and surviving right now. If you would like me to pray for you, let me know.
I have been busy taking a coaching course from Brittany Watkins on Tapping for Weight Loss, using EFT. I have shifted so many things in this course and have more to go, but I wanted to share a little today. This is on Brittany’s Instagram account so you can find the entire piece there but here is a little guide line to know when and if you are self sabotaging yourself. This is particularly hazardous during times of anxiety and isolation so I thought it timely:
Signs of self sabotaging:
~Negative self talk
~Making excuses or justifying your behavior
~Not taking responsibility
~Being too busy
~Projecting or blaming others
Any and all of the above can lead us into self sabotage. Be on the lookout for these when they appear in your lives in order to recognize them, name them, and let them go. And if you know how to tap with EFT, you can do so. Engaging the nervous system helps to change behaviors dramatically. In a few months I will be looking for volunteers so I can practice. You do not need to have a weight problem to be a part of this as we will be addressing so many other issues that underlie what manifests on the physical. Be on the lookout if this might be something of interest to you.
|April 2020 Newsletter What a lot of change in a month. I feel as if I am living on another planet right now, or at least another reality! This month I will continue with a wonderful addition to Color Therapy Month which is in March of each year. It is an article by Charles Andrade about Lazure Painting. The first time I experienced this amazing painting method was in Ann Arbor, Michigan at a Waldorf School. I’ll let Charles tell you what it is but Charles is a master at this sort of work. I’ve included a few photos of the many he and his lovely wife sent me. I would dearly love to live in a place long enough to paint my bedroom walls in Lazure. If you don’t have a Lazure artist in your are area, Charles offers DIY kits. I think it would be great fun to use them! So enjoy the article and the little bits of encouragement within the newsletter. God bless. Lazure is more than just a decorative paint finish but offers a whole new way of looking at and experiencing color. Lazure painting is based on color theory that understands the psychological and spiritual effect that light and color have on human beings. If I were to give a definition of Lazure, it would be, the atmospheric blushing of analogous colors across a white wall. The luminous, transparent quality of Lazure is created when color glazes are brushed on in layers. The subtle, optical mixing that takes place on the walls when ambient light shines through the successive veils of color calls forth a nuanced perception on the part of the viewer. Where opaque paint absorbs light and captures color monochromatically in a dense medium, the water-thin Lazure glazes are suspended in a clear medium that is applied over a white surface that allow for optimal light reflection and refraction. Lazuring is almost as if one is painting with light or using light as a pigment. It can make the walls of a room disappear, replaced by color that move across the walls of a room and change in tone throughout the day. Lazure may be used to produce a variety of qualities from soothing and calming to dynamic and invigorating. The color’s effects can be either gradual and sequential or muralistic and dramatic. I work closely with my clients to understand how the space under consideration will be used. This helps me align the right color(s) with the human activity taking place within that space. Then I look at the architectural quality of the room to see what spatial dynamic it offers, and how its structure affects the way the nature light enters the space. Together, we arrive and achieve the ideal desired interior design result for their home. BIO Charles Andrade owns and operates Lazure Custom Wall Designs – a mural and decorative painting business, specializing in a unique European glazing finish called Lazure that creates healing interior environments. Andrade paints in the colorist style that has evolved from his initial training in painting which he studied in England at Tobias School of Art & Therapy. His paintings can be found in private collections in North America, Europe and New Zealand. Charles teaches fine art classes, lectures and offers Lazure and painting workshops worldwide.

So many colors are there for us to call on as we go through these challenging times. Orange for shock and trauma; blue to bring in a sense of peace and calming; yellow for home schoolers to help your children retain information as well as a healthy sense of self; green to help heal our hearts and bring in a sense of space and nature; purple to help us expand spiritually; gold to help us connect with our gut wisdom and help us overcome fears……each color has its own way of supporting us.

http://www.lifepotentials.net/shop/ Here are two different but equally wonderful You Tube videos for you to enjoy. The first is Admiral McCraven’s speech which was the basis for his book, Make Your Bed. It is crammed full of wisdom and worth watching over and over.
The second is a beautiful rendition of a “shelter in place” video of the song, “It is Well With My Soul”. Such gifted singers! Enjoy!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDIJz6zzHNU&feature=youtu.be This is the Table of Contents for Simply Color for Everyday Living, the latest book in the Simiply Color series. It was written by 25 professionals plus myself and covers all these ways to use color. Dr. Quaranto describes it as a “combination of self developement, feng shui,” and “tons of ideas.” The book is a great gift item, as well as a wonderful book for your own library and reference http://www.lifepotentials.net/media/books Happy Spring. May we all come out of this united and free. Until next month…..
