What do you want more of in your life? Ericksonian Hypnosis.

I like writing blogs…

when I want to talk about something, and I think maybe someone will be interested,

I like to take pictures,

share what I’m experiencing,

what I’m excited about,

interested in.

What I want to focus my attention on.

Feed.

Give energy to.

I have so much I want to say,

I’m pondering how to direct it in a blog,

That will start a conversation.

I’m hoping you’ll come along for the ride.

Participate in.

Ponder.

The voice in my head says,

Just start.

Knowing

I can save anything from a draft, and publish when it’s ready.

I can go back and change, or delete, anything I write.

I could have 50 drafts going at once.

I’ll know when I want to publish.

Just start.

Start by thinking about.

Start by typing.

Start by talking about.

Start by imagining.

Start by planning.

Start by taking pictures.

Start by investing.

Start by inviting.

Start by expressing interest.

You don’t need to know where it’s going when you start.

I’m giving you suggestions for,

opening your mind to interesting, and exciting ideas.

What do you want to talk about?

The Beginning.

 

Showing off My Sprouts

Image

Image

I thought I would show off a little at Epic Skill Swap, and make a sprout salad for the Friday night pot luck. I forgot, then started the seeds a little to late.

The new plan! 

I’ll bring the sprouting seeds, so everyone can watch them grow! They should be ready to eat by Sunday.

Hey, I might be sharing a skill this year after all!

I taught massage last year.

I could also assist at Christine’s yoga class.

I could also give a demo on wire art, with beads.

Or maybe I’ll help the massage teacher, I sure needed Christine’s help last year!

Before you ask how much….

Wouldn’t you rather first want to ask about the massage?

About me, the therapist?

Tell me what you’re looking for, and see if I’m knowledgeable about the treatment?

Wouldn’t you want to know why I do what I do?

Don’t you want to know how the experience is going to be, before you decide what a ‘Good’ price is? 

If you don’t care about the experience of the massage therapist, why not go to the massage school, and get a $30. massage? They need to practice, and would love to have you.

For all of the knowledge, and experience I have, I want to give a great massage, at a more than fair price. 

I love giving massage. It’s the happiest part of most days. I feel honored to share the experience with you. 

I have a fantasy that heaven will be me experiencing every massage I gave, as the receiver. I make it the way I’d want it. 

There, now ask me, “how much?”Image.

The answer is $55.-$65. for an hour sliding scale, and  $35. for 30 minutes. 

Sliding scale means you pay what you feel good paying, feel you can afford, and how often you are coming. 

Cantaloupe with Mascarpone Cheese

This cantaloupe is the best I’ve ever tasted. From the Hadley Flea Market. Nathan (My  son the chef) agrees.

I mixed the Mascarpone with a little heavy cream, vanilla, and a little Stevia.

This would make a nice dip for lots of fruit!

For a diabetic, adding the fat, and protein slows down the sugar (from the fruit), so blood sugar does not spike fast.

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Who Wants to Play?

spiralIt’s New Years Eve. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do today. I decided to just surrender to the Universe, you know… that bigger part of me, and see what comes up.

I decided to have a dialog with that part of me that is not happy,

“You are doing a great job!”

“You have been so diligent in your desire to protect me!”

“I’ve giving you a promotion!”

“How does that sound to you?”

“A Promotion.”

“And you get to decide what your new job will be,

based on what you know, from being the protector.”

“Tell me what you want.”

“Really want.”

“And let’s create your new job together.”

I invite you to do this with me today.

I’ll post my answer later. You post yours as well.

Proof the Universe conspires on your behalf.

spiral

What stories do you tell yourself everyday? Have strong feelings about it? Very powerful! This can bad…..or good!

Try this one on. Every time something goes your way say,

“Proof the Universe conspires on my behalf!”

or

“Proof the Universe loves me!”

Imagine what your subconscious mind will do with that! Really. Imagine it. When you start to get excited, FEEL it.

If you don’t believe in the Universe, you could say God instead ;).
