1. Daily Morning Meditation
20 minutes a day, or  the Redd Coaching way, 28 minutes to music,
“Bija” music by Todd Norian is fabulous.  You can find him on Itunes.

The natural way we should feel is:
Gratitude, Love, Self Love, Joy, Awe, and Peace/Calm.

When our brain waves are in a constant state of emergency (out of coherence)
we are in a state called:  high beta brain wave fuction and we feel:
insecurity, fear, judgment, worry, sadness, anger, impatience and disgust.
This is the brain “over aroused”.   When this occurs, our body turns on
stress hormones, which then turn on genes that cause disease.
We esssentially get addicted to our own hormones of stress, we become addicted
to our old stories and our drama…to feel something.
We turn on our genes for sickness, we get sick,  we get colds,  we can gain weight,
we do not sleep well.  If these negative emotions continue to circulate in the forefront or backdrop of our minds, we will get more serious diseases such as auto immune diseases, infections, heart attacks and cancers.

What to do:  Turn your brain waves around, re-set yourself with your morning meditation, daily in the a.m.. When I am working with my one on one clients, I will do it with them in session to help them practice, reherse and train themselves, until the client becomes competent and proficient on their own.
2. The Body is Holy and a Miracle, start treating it that way and believing it. You will start to see huge shifts in your body and life in as short as a week to 30 days.

3. Express your emotions pretty darn quickly.  When you feel angry, sad, worried, etc.
Express it soon, choose the right timing, get calm first and express “it” to whomever you need to have a talk with.  Don’t brush these emotions under the rug.  When you let these
emotions build up, that is what they do, build up… they then turn on the hormones for stress and the genes for disease will follow.   It’s like a domino effect, all starting with your negative thoughts.  You may be completely right in feeling anger, someone may have done something to make you angry.  But, discuss it with them.  Get an agreement that this issue will not occur again with this individual.  If you can’t get an agreement with him or her, choose other friends and colleges to be in your inner circle of life.  Don’t wait, don’t bottle yourself up, or literally you will start to blow up.

4. Don’t act out life’s traumas in your body.  If you don’t get a solid handle on #3,  you will act out life’s traumas in your body, it is sure to happen.  Handle #3, take action and then your body will not act out your life’s traumas, it will not start to breakdown and you will stay healthy and bulletproof.

Much Love and Gratitude,

Your intention is so strong. When your message is clear to yourself, and it is coming from your truth, your heart… it is even stronger.

Did you know that being born as a human being is a gift. You could of been born as a bird, a puppy, or a lady bug. But no, you chose to incarnate into this world as a human being and you are a gift! You are powerful, you are complicated, and you can do good on this earth or you can do evil. You have a very strong magical power, and that is the power to manifest!

Our intentions are critical, sending a pure signal to the Universe is critical.

Here are the 8 steps to get straight with how to make intentions turn into your reality… in the way I have experienced it.

The 8 STEPS:

1. Know that you are a gift. What is the perspective you have of yourself? Are you a victim, a co-dependent, or a GIFT? Let me tell you what I know for sure, you are a gift. Every human being has the power to manifest!

2. Set you intention each morning. Write it down specifically and then look at your outline each morning. Then, let go of how it is supposed to show up. The GRAND MYSTERY is activated and starting to work, now.

3. Feel your intention in your heart as a soft breeze. It is always there. It does not feel like a storm or a needy goal…it is not aggressive, it is a knowing.

4. Visualize your intention clearly. See it every morning as if it were already here. See it in your house, driving in your car, at work and with you after work. Oh yes, it is right with you.

5. Emotionally feel it. Every morning feel the value you have by having this intention and feel the value others feel by you having this intention.

6. Let go of any expectation of exactly how it is supposed to show up in your life.

7. The Universe will test you to see if you are truly serious about your intention. You will fall down.
Will you get back up?
Yes, get back up and take action, then take action again.
Then, take action again. Consistent action is key.

8. Birth it.

And, this is the process that has worked for me. I did this as I created the luxury retreat side of my coaching business. I visualized doing yoga by the ocean, and life coaching in a family style format – having deep, intimate conversation over dinner in a luxury home.
June of 2015 was my first retreat in Half Moon Bay, I sold out. I just completed my second retreat on in Jan. 2016 in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I was scarred, it took a ton of effort and money up front…but I did it. I have created more love and value in my tribe, and I am very proud of myself. You will be too.

The next Luxury Yoga & Life Coaching Retreat is in Tahoe June 23 – 26, 2016! Watch for early bird (special pricing) at the end of Feb. 2016.

Warm Regards,

Personal Identity – A CHANGE?

What is your personal identity? What do you call yourself? What do you say to yourself with that quiet, inner voice?
Do you say, “I am a Firewoman, An Author, A Full-Time Mother, An Office Staff Worker, A Public Speaker, A Certified Public Accountant, A Go Green Attorney, A Healer, or, I am not much of anything? The list can go on and on. Is it uplifting for you?

Did you know that the way in which you speak to yourself is what you are and what you will become? I have a famous, “right on the money” saying, and that is, “Be careful of your thoughts, they become words, be careful of your words, they become actions, be careful of your actions, they become habits, be careful of your habits, they become your destiny at the bank, in your relationships and with your body. I borrowed that from World Renowned, Cognitive Behavior Therapist, and Therapist on the show Millionaire Matchmaker, Dr. Pat Allen.

What if I told you , you CAN change your personal identity, your personal definition of yourself, just by CHANGING the STORY you are telling yourself Yes, this is true!
