A moment of change

Life is a journey that always unfolds something new. As if the swiftness of time passes by me, experiences bring about so much change that makes reason stare at times.

Being out in nature in the Northwest, I glance around within the wind blowing through the trees. Many times, I’ve found myself watching the clouds roll by like flocks of birds in the far distance passing by. Oh what a sight!

The rains come swiftly upon my window pane. Wind blows like scattered rain clouds, here and there in a swirl.

What joy, what fun, what play could show up? What else is possible?

The swiftness of time will tell, what comes about when its time. So for now, I shall go with the flow and embrace all of life, moment by moment.

Decision: At The Cross Roads

Changing my name was one of the most important decisions I have made in my life.

       How could I have known a chance encounter with a friend would change my life forever? My friend Alexi (from years ago), surprised me when she announced her decision to change her name. There was a spark in her eyes and I noticed a new air of confidence that ignited my curiosity. This was especially meaningful because, here I was, considering changing my name again!

Before we parted, she suggested that I contact the Society of Kabalarians, who are experts in understanding the relationships of mathematics to language and how our names create our patterns of thinking, as well as the types of people and events that we likely attract. At first, I kind of shrugged it off; I was skeptical.

Then, after some time, I began thinking about the choices I’d made for my name, and I vividly recalled one experience that has led up toward making a decision about changing my name. I was a member of a community choir, and one night during rehearsal, we sang a song that included the words, “Sing your name!” The choir director spontaneously suggested, “Wouldn’t it be great if everyone got to sing his or her name?” This comment deeply resonated inside me because I’d never thought about what a big difference there is between saying your name as compared to singing your name. And while this thought was rolling around in my head, the choir director chose three people to sing her or his name. These individuals were glowing with pride as they sang their name. I was glad that she didn’t choose me. At the time, I was feeling uncomfortable about my name which is why I was in the process of deciding upon a new one.

Later that night, I went home and thought about all the names I’ve used. I’ve changed my name three times! Yet, I still didn’t fully and completely relate to any of the ones I had or chose. I asked myself, “What name would feel ‘just right’ if I were to sing that name to myself before I went to sleep at night?” At that moment, I intuitively understood that I could only live with a name that would give me a sense of contentment, especially when I was singing it. This realization brought tears to my eyes.

Prior to this experience, my mind kept going back and forth, trying to answer the question, “What’s in a name?” Little did I realize that, sometime later, my mind would also be stimulated by other people’s thoughts about my choosing a new name. Several people had already commented – something to the effect of, “Your original name is just as beautiful as any other you might choose.” I had mixed feelings when I heard this kind of comment because, most of the time, I felt like my original name never really suited me; nor did it matched-up with my true inner nature. Sometimes, the whole thing seemed to weight heavy on me, and I just wanted to forget all about this “name-changing stuff” and the internal struggles I was experiencing because of it.

That night, as I was trying to figure out what name I could comfortably go to bed singing, I felt an impulse to contact the Society of Kabalarians, those name-balancing experts. Something was pushing me to overcome my past skepticism.

I felt that I might get some measure of relief if I contacted the Society of Kabalarians as they should understand my concerns, especially with my previous unsuccessful past name changes. I anticipated it might prove to be a profound experience to have a Kabalarian consultant, who has never met me, be able to describe my thinking patterns based upon their principle that links language and mathematics through the name. I was already aware that none of us thinks without language, so I was totally intrigued by the Kabalarians’ claim to be able to accurately describe how mathematics is linked to letter and how both mathematics and language influences us. The Kabalarians believe there is measurable logic to letters that make-up a name, and that every name has its own particular energy vibration, its own harmony – like notes in a musical scale.

These thoughts caused me to become even more curious about “What’s in a name,” and how the letters in my name influence my patterns of thinking; so, I contacted the Society of Kabalarians and ordered a Name Report (NR). The NR defined how my first and last names have influenced and molded my personality in relationship to my birth path and, in fact, my entire life! Could this be true? I was overwhelmed! Nevertheless, I persevered; I made up my mind and ordered a list of recommended names that would be personally suited to my inner nature. Some part of me was playing “private investigator,” and that part of me wanted to prove something, regardless of my skepticism and regardless of what I did or didn’t understand.

I decided to take the opportunity to play-around with this list of names and see how I felt about the different mind-set that each name would bring about, a mindset that would be different from what I’ve ever considered before. It would be like trying on several outfits at a clothing store in order to see what feels right. When it came time for a final decision on which name to choose, I thought it might be useful, as part of my decision-making process, to have some supportive friends share their impressions about the names I was considering.

At the same time, I was also reflecting on my experiences. Thoughts about various names were constantly running through my mind; “This one fits, in some way,” or “No way!” My mind was continuously trying to find a name that was comfortable and harmonious.

Interestingly enough, though, as soon as I started thinking about and trying-on various names, I received a phone call, out-of-the-blue, from my father – as if he knew something was up, yet didn’t really know for sure. We talked about a whole bunch of things, but finally, at the end of our short conversation, I broke the news to him that I was planning to change my name toward one that I felt better suited me. He couldn’t fully understand why I was changing my name, all he could say was ” It doesn’t really matter. You’re still the same person.” I give him credit for recognizing that I am, still, who I am. But I think he’s willing to accept that I’m becoming a new person.

Finally, after all my mind-thrashing and taking input from my true and dear friends, I legally changed my name. This time, I’d chosen a more mathematically balanced name that harmonizes with my inner nature; and, this time I could feel a definite change in my inner-being. I had a surreal feeling; a sensation running through my body as if I’d had an energy “face-lift.” Over a very short period of time, I was able to notice how my thought patterns seemed to alter the outcomes of my experiences. There were even noticeable changes in my health, my mental stability, and less intensity of challenges, overall. Anything I set out to do towards mental, emotional, physical wellness, speeded up more freely.

It is a relief to feel so much more at home in my skin. Life didn’t seem to be so much of a struggle as it used to be. I began to recognize that when I had been going back and forth between names, it was creating more confusion, as opposed to sticking with one name.

And here’s how I finally decided upon a name after great deal of contemplations: It came in a dream, like magic! I was dreaming of a friend. My friend was walking, saying hello, and calling me by the name, Callie. In the dream, and even afterward, when I heard that name being spoken, I felt a surge of joy welling-up in my spirit, and the joy became effervescent laughter. Even before this dream experience, every time I’d practiced using the name, Callie, I would laugh inside, like it was a really funny joke! Joke or not, the name gave me joy! After the dream, I could no longer deny that the name, Callie was a truly special match.

Ever since I made this important decision, I’ve continued to reap benefits and success in all I have set to accomplish: Progress in personal growth. Things have come my way naturally without struggles of the past in progressive ways in one way or another. It’s easier to maintain staying healthy, having mastery of health. My ability with speech and communication has dramatically improved as well.

What a treasure it is to be called by my name “Callie”.

Infinite Possibilities

To cherish life is to embrace wellness.

To embrace wellness, is to feel grateful.

To feel grateful, is to release the unresolved emotions.

To resolve emotions, is to forgive the inner critic.

To forgive the inner critic, is to appreciate what matters most.

The winding road of my journey…

The winding road of my journey, has led me to continue exploring, from within, to understand the fundamental laws of developing individuality for expansion and growth for a greater purpose.

Over the past several months,  curiosity, has progressively been my saving grace!  Have you ever wondered how being on a chase for something you desired, of how much of a contribution it’s been to simply “be” curious?

The gifts of curiosity enabled me to further challenge my potential,  igniting faith and trust with infinite possibilities. A sea of ideas to question everything, has been a part of my way of life. Since the later part last summer, I went from having explored the path of utilizing learned alternative tools that helped me evolve, as well as having help along the way,  desiring to share in exchange as well as reaching out to others, to retreating again to seek within for the next steps. Curiosity led me to taking a 12 week Ultimate Success Masterclass program by Natalie Ledwell,  which contributed to my taking inspired actions that involved creating my own mind movie as a contribution to manifest desires. That actually catapulted me to come face to face with a profound realization, an answer to my being so upset with current circumstances, that I was then guided to start paying attention to Bob Proctor’s teachings, thus I began studying  the success of others in the book, “Think and Grow Rich.” Obviously it was a matter of time to have a breakthrough of seeing beyond challenging oppositions, to recognizing this grand opportunity steps to overcome unresolved inner reactions. Interestingly, I had been familiar with pioneering thought leaders, motivational speakers and authors before. Nonetheless, curiosity was also my nature to be the observer, knowing deeply that just about anything is possible. This was strengthening my faith to go beyond my comfort zone. It’s become clear to me that another chief aim of mine, for fun, has naturally been to earn a Masters or Ph.D in Personal Development from life experiences for a greater purpose.

The winding road through twist and turns of unlearning, self nurturing, forgiveness, study, questioning everything, master minding with like-minded others, open-mindedness, exploring what else is possible yet to be discovered, and re-learning in my experiences have continued on from here, along with making many new connections or friends,  ever-expanding and growing.

Wonderful new doors of opportunity have been coming. After attending a motivational event by Author Les Brown, and from that I signed up to take a workshop on being a successful speaker, and a writers workshop designed by Gerry Robert. And so, my book writing is in process. Lastly, it is the chase of curiosity that is helping me unravel more to learn from, which involves reinventing my life in various areas. I’m so grateful for everything and everyone that has contributed in being a part of my path, and I’m so delighted to being a part of others life in some way progressively.

I Beat Cerebral Palsy

 

 

I beat Cerebral Palsy. — I can offer helpful suggestions for you and your family.

I was diagnosed at birth (at 1-year-old?) as having Cerebral Palsy. As you know, CP does not affect intelligence — but it DOES affect your ability to move normally — and that affects how you are perceived in the world. You are labeled … as physically deficient — and therefore “less than.”

Not only does this labeling affect the child, but it becomes a terrible burden on the family — even when the family loves that child and wants to do the best for him or her.

Unfortunately, my family put me up into foster care, which was not so helpful.

But I have been re-writing my story about what I was born with. I chose to find out all the ways I could recover from this condition — and beat the label of .. physically and mentally deficient. I have found healing methodologies for both body, mind and spirit — and I’m here today, able to walk like a normal person, learn, write, type and interact with others like a normal person.

Now I am preparing to share my Cerebral Palsy success story with others to give new hope — and results — from the tools — and the vision — I used for myself.

I am ready to launch my message of Hope — with upcoming tips  — for Overcoming CP — in a big way.

 

Cerebral Palsy Reversed!

I have a success story to tell … I once had Cerebral Palsy (CP), and now I don’t.

Along my healing journey that began over a decade ago, I have found many tools – and people – that have supported my healing, my wellness and my potential. One of my starting points was when I began a Neuro Re-Patterning  program through The HANDLE  Institute. As a result, I gradually went through metamorphic changes in my body and mind that were driven by my heart and spirit. Little did I realize that was just the beginning of ongoing transformations to come.

Despite having been placed in special education throughout primary schooling, in 2012 I concluded a triumphant academic experience when I made the Dean’s list in the first quarter of college. In addition, I was guided to a new friend, Tiffany Powers, for assistance with something unrelated to my diagnosed condition of CP. Tiffany introduced me to Theta Healing in my first personal ThetaHealing® session, with her as a practitioner. Then, a number of months later, Tiffany was my first basic and advanced DNA class facilitator. Theta Healing activates our DNA at the level of our highest potential. Working with Tiffany enabled me to restore and renew my connection to my Higher Power for the better like never before.

Afterward, I had ThetaHealing® sessions addressing CP, with Pamela Duff and Jennifer Farley. It was amazing to experience the subtle energy shifts that took place, energizing the neural pathways in my nervous system. My processing of thoughts into motor actions such as, thinking and writing where greatly eased and the speed increased. My experiences compelled me to take an additional series of Theta Healing classes four months after the basic courses.

Therefore,  for 9 weeks that started in January 2013, I did a marathon of 10 Theta Healing classes, 9 of which were facilitated by Suzanne Dann, who naturally offered a generous spirit of supportive nurturing and taught me so much. One of those classes was a two-day class with Tiffany Powers mixed in between that power series I had. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend taking so much back to back like that, however, I was already used to lots of stimulation with college and felt I could take this on, I was so ready to purge and recharge. I knew intuitively that taking further classes would catapult me into internal changes that I felt were required. This would enable me to clean the slate of my past sooner than later, so that I could get on constructively with my life with more ease and joy.

In my discoveries experimenting probabilities, I’ve learned resilience to survive man-made ‘diagnoses’ of physiological labels by way of having thrived after the following challenges; Cerebral Palsy (I once had), living in multiple foster homes, and having been mentally handicapped. 

The gifts of having invested in ThetaHealing®: ThetaHealing® not only helped facilitate energetic change that contributed to restoration of the brain damage that resulted in Cerebral Palsy, despite society’s beliefs that it is incurable. Furthermore, I have more fully stepped into my individuality, with clarity and empowerment. It greatly contributed to my being able to fully overcome shocks and traumas from a childhood of adversity. I know how to transform the seemingly impossible into the probable. I offer my deepest gratitude and appreciation to all who have contributed towards this becoming probable in every way, including, Karen Greenberg with her Kabbalah courses. Lastly, I give thanks to everyone else who have contributed to my expanded awareness and those I’m currently in supportive connection with.

HANDLE exercise benefits

Have you ever experienced the wonderful benefits of using a crazy straw, a straw with with some creative design to it?

Amazingly, all it takes is drinking a minimum of 8 oz of liquid with a straw per day, to help with strengthening binocular vision… by way of utilizing the sucking muscles. This is why baby’s instinctively know to suck a lot, in order to develop the eye’s. In so doing, the splinter muscles get strengthened as well. Also, this exercise strengthens bladder and bowel control, as well as the vestibular system and splinter muscles. For further information on this exercise and its many benefits, check out the link under “Cool Stuff” on my website listed on the side.
