Finding Peace in Anxious Times

Finding confidence and freedom over anxiety

Every day makes me more anxious” I saw on Facebook.

I hear you!!  Anxiety, fear, stress and despair are at an all time high and rising exponentially every day.  Understand though, slipping into a pit of despair is not going to help our country and it is not going to help us individually.

I’m not suggesting looking through rose colored glasses by any means, but now more than ever self-care needs to be a priority.  If you’ve ever travelled on an airplane, you’ve heard “If the oxygen masks come down, place one on yourself first, and then help others.”

One of the first things you can do for your self-care is to limit how much time you spend on media and social media.  I remember hearing Marianne Williamson years ago say,

“We get up in the morning, turn on the TV news, click on our computers, gulp down our coffee and then wonder why we have a shitty day.”

(I’m paraphrasing here, but you get the idea.)

I stopped watching the TV news years ago when I realized just how toxic it was for me.  On January 20th, there was NO WAY I was going to watch the inauguration. I went to a local retreat center and prayed, meditated, practiced yoga and walked the Labyrinth.  I actually felt pretty peaceful on a day that was anything but! The next few days, I didn’t meditate, and even though, on a few of those days, I did practice yoga, I still was feeling anxious, not peaceful. 

I realized I need to walk my talk!  I’ve been teaching wonderful, simple techniques for self-care for over 20 years and I need to practice them just like I advise my clients.

TODAY WE GOT THIS!

I woke up this morning and first thing, I practiced my meditation.  I feel more balanced than I have for days.  Yes, I am on social media – I need to stay informed (more than ever!); AND I am monitoring how much I am taking in, as well as who I am listening to.  I am making sure to get my news from credible sources and on social media, I am following people who are acknowledging what we are going through and inspiring us to positive action (like Marianne Williamson, Maria Shriver and Elizabeth Gilbert to name a few).

The Women’s March and Beyond

If you were one of the millions who marched on Saturday, THANK YOU!!!

It was my very first –and not my last – march.  Millions of us around the globe – and not one arrest!  But Saturday was not a “one and done”

Womens March against anxiety, fear, stress and despair

With the speed of events happening so quickly, it can feel overwhelming and that can lead to shutting down – just as a basic survival instinct.  Please don’t let that happen!  We need you to continue the good fight and you will feel so much better and feel empowered when you are taking action.  So rather than looking at the overwhelming amount of ways you can take action, chunk it down to one or two actions you can commit to doing consistently.  This is a marathon, folks, not a sprint! Imagine how good you will feel when you’ve taken consistent action for a week or two; then a month or two…you are going to feel so empowered! This is exactly what this new administration doesn’t want you to feel!

Taking a Positive Spin on Self-Talk

Another thing I’d like you to consider is to pay more attention to your thoughts, your inner voice.  It’s estimated that we think 60,000 thoughts a day and 95% of them are the same as yesterday.  Even scarier, 85% of those thoughts are negative!  So turn up the volume on your self-talk-not as a way to beat yourself up, but to begin noticing.

Awareness is the first step in changing anything.  When they yell “BUILD THE WALL”, hear in your mind, “HOW CAN I BUILD BRIDGES?”  Even if you don’t take immediate action on building those bridges, you’ll have taken a great first step toward change and that is a great way to feel empowered, not anxious and afraid.

I’ve empowered thousands to move  from feeling anxious, fearful, stressed and despair to find freedom, peace of mind and joy in their lives.

Blessings,

I was having a really rough summer, which led to numbing anxiety and plain fear. I woke up in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep because my heart was pounding and it was hard to breathe. I had a lot on my plate, fun things, but was incapable of starting anything, so I turned to Stephanie for help. After just ONE session, things changed dramatically, and since then I have launched my program and am sleeping at night again. And the best thing of all, I get to do all the fun stuff!

T.G., NYC

I had a serious car accident when I was 17 which landed me in the hospital and unable to walk or go to school for several months afterward. I had recurrent dreams and moments of reliving the crash for months. Fast forward 38 years, and I had another car accident a few weeks ago. I was shocked to find that same crash recurrence happening again, and creating a lot of anxiety when I drove. Knowing Stephanie's talents, I immediately contacted her and set up a session. What I loved is that she didn't go back and make me relive the crash again but knew that there might be a different cause for the PTSD. Sure enough, we discovered it and healed it. I can't tell you the difference since our session. Not once recurrence, and while I'm still a little nervous driving (which isn't a bad thing) I have the whole thing in perspective, and that out of the blue PTSD is gone! Thanks so much, Stephanie. Your gifts are amazing and appreciated!

If you are thinking that you don’t really need Stephanie . . . you’re wrong!!! I am here to tell you that you don’t even understand how much she can really help you. Success is exponential with Stephanie. I am now doing things in my business that I have wanted to do for years!! Thanks to Stephanie! The best way I can describe it in a “nutshell” is that she creates a safe space that allows you to release the old stuff that doesn’t serve you anymore. Then she helps you replace it with the things you want and the patterns and thoughts that help you get it. She has the expertise, experience, professionalism and drive to make her one of the best intuitive life coaches I have ever had! She has so many tools to use to help you succeed – from the unconscious to “nuts and bolts” – you’ll get it all. Then she has the methods to motivate and keep you on task. Most importantly for me is that she is intuitive so she can really tap into to what I personally need and want. She is worth the investment! I highly recommend her!!

Working with Stephanie has been life changing. She has helped me to release blockages that I didn’t even realize were holding me back from achieving the business success that I truly desire. After working with Stephanie for less than two months, the magic started to happen in my business. “Out of the blue” two ideal clients called me and I booked $20,000 worth of new business just like that! I have moved from anxiety and struggle to ease and faith. Thank you a million times over Stephanie. Your patience, guidance and unique talent have had a huge impact on my life and business.

I started to work with Stephanie when I thought I could not fit one more thing into my life. I am so happy to admit that I was wrong and I am so grateful that I got to work with a passionate, compassionate and enthusiastic woman such as Stephanie. I have started a new biz about bringing more peace and love into the world, I work as an artist and writer and you would think I had time for self-care. I kept forgetting me every day. Stephanie helped me to reintroduce myself to myself and find the time to just be and breathe and know that the answers do show up. Now I don't start the day with the world issues crashing down on me. I take the time to meditate, breathe, ask questions and give myself the most positive pep talks I can give myself. Working with Stephanie was like working with a dear friend who has all the answers, but her humanity and kindness really resonated with me. I can't thank Stephanie enough for her willingness to help me see my gifts and that I will not just walk thru my life; I will run thru it with my dreams intact and a really good pair of sneakers!
