Using Natural Cycles to Recharge Your Life

What+is+Mindfulness+&+Should+I+Practice+It_.jpg

In a recent episode from my radio show, Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit,  my guest Dr. Pia Orleane and I explore the restorative power of being mindful of your natural cycles to recover health, vitality, and overall wellness. This can be as simple as resting when we need to and connecting with nature. Dr. Orleane pointed out that the belief systems in the society we live in determine our behavioral patterns, many of which are harmful to us. We’ve come to believe that we must be constantly producing, but this takes a heavy toll on our health and our longevity. The brain and body need rest in order to function at their best. Dr. Orleane recommended getting in harmony with nature by following the cycle of your breath. When you breathe in, you go inward and become introspective. When you breathe out, you move outward into the world taking action. We need both components of the cycle. In today’s blog, in addition to my tip of the week and my silver lining story, Marian Stephens shares how she is using the information in this episode to change her life. All my previous blogs, including the first three posts with Marian’s Story, are on my website, paulajoyce.com. Be sure to check them out and follow Marian’s progress.

 Dr. Paula’s Tip of the Week

In our fast-paced society, it is easy to get caught up in life’s challenges and ignore the signals our bodies send us to slow down. When we ignore the messages from our bodies and push through, illness is often an undesired outcome.

And now for your tip for the week from my e-book, 33 Tips for Self-Empowerment. I wrote this book because when you are self-empowered, you are connected to your limitless higher self, your soul, your intuition, your gut feelings, your guidance. Our limitless higher self is the wiser part of ourselves, the part that knows the Truth of who we are. My Tip for this week is in honor of our topic today: Do Body Awareness Exercise. Most of us ignore our body, how it feels, what it wants. Learn to pay attention to your body through activities such as: Yoga, Pilates, Feldenkrais, Tai Chi. This is also in keeping with the advice Numerologist Alice Rosen gave us in our second show of the year. She emphasized that 2018 is the year of Truth, including being true to ourselves and honest with ourselves. Our bodies communicate with us, and if we don’t listen, they have to talk louder. Unfortunately for us, that often means physical pain or illness. When we are tired, for instance, our body is telling us to rest. We are physical beings and no “to do” list is more important than our own health. If we insist on pushing through the tiredness, we lower our immune system and are more likely to get sick. Being ill, forces us to rest or at least slow down. It’s better to learn to listen to the initial signs before our body forces us to rest.

 Dr. Paula’s Silver Lining Story

 Mindfulness is a powerful tool for maintaining optimal health. By simply resting and focusing on positive thoughts, you can avoid a potential illness.

When I was getting ready to do my writing for today’s episode, I started to experience acute pain in my ribs. I recognized it as a healing crisis connected to the scoliosis I’m correcting, but I didn’t know how long it would last. I thought about trying to push through it, and I quickly shifted my thinking and chose to watch a 30-minute comedy show instead. The story line and laughter took my mind off the pain and gave my body time to recover. When the show was over, I was delighted to discover that the pain had passed, and I was able to think clearly. My silver lining was seeing that I’ve learned to take care of myself and relax when I need to.

I didn’t always know how to listen to my body and used to regularly get bronchitis, sinus infections and I even had pneumonia twice. During those times, I still found the silver linings.  I would use the time for rest and solitude and to think about the parts of my life that weren’t working the way I wanted them to. Although this wasn’t the easiest way to make life changes, it did help me discover what I wasn’t wanting to see. Once you acknowledge the truth in your life, you can’t go backwards. The pauses in our life, can be amazing gifts.

In 1999, I wrote this imaginative piece about a woman tuning into her own rhythms and retreating from the world:

He had warned her about the book. Now it was too late. Days later he found her lying quietly in a deep trance with leaves growing on the book. She had been so sweet. He wished he had never let her into his life. Then this wouldn’t be happening. She’d be out playing with the others instead of imprisoned in her body. This always happened and so few came back. He wondered if she would be able to bridge the worlds and return to him, to new life, to all that this physical world has to offer, to his love and her destiny. If she can come back, if she makes it, she will hold the key to the next generation. Her wisdom will help us all evolve to the next heart level. So all I can do now is wait and pray. The pull to the other side is so great. It’ll be hard for her to leave now that she’s had the taste of ecstasy, of true deep connection. Why would anyone come back? Sometimes they’re pushed back and sometimes they make a conscious choice. I do hope she comes back. She and I can do good work together. We each have pieces of the puzzle and when we put together who we are and what we know, we’ll be dynamite. Here’s to that future.

 Marian Stephens’ Story

I am pleased with the changes that are happening in my household. By simply listening to the show, applying the tip of the week to my life, and being more mindful, I am excited to share several positive changes and many more are in the works. My 8-year-old, who I enrolled in school, is doing great – his teacher said he is doing “phenomenal”! I discovered a program that has wrap around services for my special needs 17-year-old that he should be approved for shortly. I have been writing every day, which is keeping me thinking creatively. My husband and I have been openly communicating and are enjoying an even deeper connection. It is amazing how much improvement can come about with just a little bit of work.

Dr. Paula asks listeners this week to be willing to listen to their bodies and use their natural cycles to recharge their lives. I have progressive multiple sclerosis and I am about to start a new medication to see if the progression will slow down. I am having increased difficulty walking which is impacting my ability to take care of my family. I put a lot of emphasis on medication sometimes, and I often find myself frustrated with the results. I avoid being introspective and retreating to focus on my health because I am afraid to rely on myself to heal. It is easier to blame my immobility on medication failure than it is to feel that I am not strong enough mentally to heal. But, it is time to let that fear go and rely on my inner strength. I am starting a new medication this month and I will combine that with going inward and regenerating during the moon cycle this month.

Dr. Paula and Dr. Pia Orleane share many compelling ideas on how to improve relationships. They both stress the importance of loving oneself first and foremost which leads to being able to completely love another. It is not that I do not love myself, it is more that there are behaviors that I know I need to improve that I let go by the wayside. Recently, I kept saying that I would start working on certain things soon (tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow…) because these are not easy things to change and it is a painful process – to really look in the mirror. But, this procrastination was causing imbalance in my relationship with my husband, and that imbalance frustrated me and made me want to work on things even less. It is a terrible cycle – actively not liking the way I am behaving and how it affects the family prevents real connection and intimacy from happening. I wanted honest connection and intimacy so badly that I kept trying to manufacture and force it. That never works and leads me right back to not liking how I am acting. Listening to Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit instantly affirmed that I am right to desire and cherish and nourish the connection and intimacy that I organically have with my husband. So I started applying the lessons available and am watching that imbalance correct itself. Dr. Pia Orleane helps me articulate how it feels necessary to have intimacy, trust in myself, and balance to have a strong relationship.

Dr. Paula’s Response To Marian

Great insights and forward motion. Please remember that change is a process, not an event. Have compassion for yourself and congratulate yourself on your successes and progress. Too often we only look at what we still need to do and forget how far we’ve come. Here are two suggestions to help you in your process:

  • Keep a Success Journal. Every day take a few minutes to write your progress and what you did that makes you feel good about yourself.
  • Do this exercise to release fear
  1. Ask yourself: If fear were a color, what color would it be?
  2. Choose a symbol that represents fear.
  3. Use that color to draw the symbol that represents fear.
  4. Tear up the paper into tiny pieces, like confetti, and throw it up in the air, flush it down the toilet or burn it.
  5. Spread the ashes or pieces of paper in your garden and say a prayer that the fear be transformed into love.
  6. At the end of this simple exercise, you will have released a layer of fear and you will feel lighter and more at ease. You can do this every time you feel fear and it will help you release more each time.
  7. You can also use this for other emotions like guilt or shame.

My blog helps people better their lives by releasing their fears and blossoming into who they are meant to be. Regular features include my tip of the week, my Silver Lining story and a response from Marian Stephens, who is using the information in my radio show, Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit, to change her life. Her first email to me impressed me so much that I invited her to be a regular part of my blog. I hope we inspire you to change your life. All my previous blogs are on my website, paulajoyce.com and the first post with Marian’ Story went up last week. Be sure to check it out and follow Marian’s progress.

 

Dr. Paula’s Tip for the Week

 

This week my radio show guest, Cathy Wild, and I explore the many different ways creativity facilitates personal growth. My tip for the week is a sure-fire way to jumpstart a new and exciting phase of connecting with your higher self.

 

Your tip for the week from my e-book, 33 Tips for Self-Empowerment. I wrote this book because when you are self-empowered, you are connected to your limitless higher self, your soul, your intuition, your gut feelings, your guidance. Our limitless higher self is the wiser part of ourselves, the part that knows the Truth of who we are. Our logical mind is so loud, however, that it often drowns out the whisper that is trying to guide us on our authentic path. As you learn to listen to the still small voice within, you will begin to feel at peace. Because your limitless higher self has direct access to the Divine, it is through this connection that miracles occur, like unexpected healing, healthy relationships, peace and wealth. This connection gives you an inner foundation of love, which eliminates fear. It is through this love that you can heal the planet and yourself and make the shift into the 4th dimension. Our higher self helps us find safety and even save our own life and others’ lives. We must train ourselves to trust our higher self and never go against it. Don’t talk yourself out of something that feels right to you or let what others say or think influence what you do. Please use these tips. My Tip for this week is in honor of our topic today: Discover Your Creativity: You can reconnect with your Higher Self by discovering what form of creativity gives you joy. Explore writing, dance, music and art. Create just for your own pleasure, self-expression and self-discovery. If you are concerned about people criticizing you, keep your creative explorations to yourself. Our creative expression doesn’t have to be public. It can be just for ourselves, a way of discovering more about what we think and feel, a way of letting go of hidden pain and fears and a way of unleashing buried parts of ourselves. The act of unbridled, free creation is an act of courage. We may be putting ourselves out there in a way that goes beyond the limits of what we’ve been taught is acceptable, yet it may be the very thing we need to do to become fully ourselves. When exploring your creativity, you are exploring your true self and it’s OK to be protective. In fact, you may need to be protective initially to feel safe. In time, you want to be able to feel safe being who you are anywhere, but it doesn’t happen all at once or you can scare yourself back into hiding. Be patient with yourself and have compassion for the parts of you that are still reluctant or fearful. That self-compassion will ultimately help all of who you are feel safe being seen.

Dr. Paula’s Silver Lining Story

 

2018 is set to be the year of hidden truths coming to light. Some of it is already emerging regarding abuse of women. Utilizing the creative process will guarantee women’s voices will be heard loud and clear as is illustrated in my silver lining moment.

At the 60th annual Grammy awards on Sunday, the president of the recording Academy, Neil Portnow, said in a backstage comment: “women who have the creativity in their hearts and souls, who want to be musicians, who want to be engineers, producers, and want to be part of the industry and the executive level” need to “step up.” The silver lining is that his prejudicial statement has brought out the truth about the difficulty women have in getting equal treatment in the music industry. The numbers say it all: only 22.4% of the artists are women, only 12.3% of songwriters are women and only 2% of producers are women, only one woman received an award during the televised portion of the Grammys and only 16.8% of musicians played on popular radio are women. Katy Perry said, “I’m proud of all the women making incredible art in the face of continual resistance.” For Portnow to attack women’s creativity was outrageous. When there is institutionalized discrimination, we all have an obligation to call it out and work for change. The paradox was the big moment Kesha had performing her song Praying, which was about her experience of sexual and emotional abuse by her music producer. It was a triumphant moment, and hopefully ushering in a new era for the music industry. Women are leading the charge for change, and I hope they use their anger to add more fuel to their already substantial creative juices and show the world what we are all capable of when we are allowed to shine.

Marian Stephens’ Story

 

I am a mother of four boys ages 2 to 17 and a stepmom to a twelve-year-old boy. In the last three months, I’ve gotten married, blended a family, moved into a new apartment, been trying to find a rhythm, worked on finding my motherly voice in this family of men, began discovering and pursuing creative outlets with my husband, and attempted to figure life out again at age forty-two. Not that I had it figured out at thirty-two or even twenty-two, but I do know I could answer the questions posed in today’s episode with a lot less effort when I was younger. Taking care of a family and often putting their needs first makes knowing who I am, what I want, and that those things matter not always feel particularly important. I think in order to live my truth, I need to ask these questions first.

 

Five years ago I had the realization that I was barely living my life, much less living it authentically, and everything changed. I discovered after listening to this episode that I have been in the process of finding my creativity for the past five years. Listeners were asked how they would like to express themselves creatively and my answer is easy – writing! After listening, I realize that writing is part of my purpose, not just a fun activity. Now I need to set aside wondering if I have talent or a great work inside of me and let the joy of expressing my heart and mind with a keyboard be my vehicle for personal growth that overshadows my fear of sounding silly.

 

I think viewing building and living a life that I love as my most important creation can make the process so much more enjoyable. Knowing its importance might give me the courage to make hard choices and stay on the path I am choosing when it feels overwhelming.

 

This week I began a new job and found myself overwhelmed with the new responsibility of being organized, prioritizing, and setting boundaries with my children necessary to correctly complete the tasks I was given. I have been half-heartedly homeschooling my eight-year-old son and it felt newly impossible this week. I have contemplated putting him into school since I moved because homeschooling is putting a strain on my relationship with everyone in my house. It became clear this week that I am not able to be fully invested in homeschooling, writing, or being successful at the unique work opportunity in front of me. The questions that Dr. Paula and Cathy gave listeners to ask themselves when creating suddenly made the right choice for me crystal clear. This new position allows me to work from home, work with inspirational people, and write. If I continue to fear allowing my son to experience public school, I am going to jeopardize something that puts me squarely on the path to creating a fulfilling life for my family. So, my son begins school next week!

Ruminations Post Episode of Inside the Chyrsalis of #MeToo

Ruminations Post Episode of Inside the Chyrsalis of #MeToo

I’ve been ruminating too much about my recent episode on The Womb Happy Hour (https://www.voiceamerica.com/show/2634/the-womb-happy-hour) about the #MeToo movement.

What’s funny is that during the show, I talked about how women tend to over think things and it prevents them from acting – making decisive decisions and making forward movement. Over-thinking doesn’t optimally serve women.

So I’ve been marinating for too long on – what I wanted to say on the show but didn’t say, certain words that came out of my mouth incorrectly. Not being clear enough on some thoughts. It’s been bugging me. For example, I said the solar eclipse happened in September. Wrong. It happened in August.
(My theory on some of hidden information coming to light is because of the reset we went through with that powerful eclipse.)

Trivial ruminations? Maybe. But when you’re in the spin of over-thinking, it’s easy to get caught up in the loop.

There’s this other voice in my head that says, “Lorraine you got your period two days after the show and you had an intense session right before the show. You didn’t ground yourself enough pre-show.” At certain points during the show I thought of my sister telling my niece when she was younger “use your words sweetie.”

As an important side note, if you ever feel like it’s hard to use your words before you’re about to get your monthly flow, it’s quite normal due to the shifts between estrogen and progesterone during PMS and menstruation. If you’d like to check out an interesting research report on how menstruation affects communication, read here.

Back to my brooding thoughts.

Taking pen to paper helps me sort out and soften my spin.

Calms those voices in my head that put me in a head lock that I’m supposed to be perfect. Even though intellectually I know I’m not anywhere near perfect, it’s like some wired program that gets turned on and I say to myself – here we go again.

Thank goodness, writing it out does help. Hoping some of these suggestions assist soothing your spin.

Usually I have someone help edit my blogs before I put them out there. For this post – I’m just putting it out there without the cleanup.

Life is messy, our flow gets messy. It’s really easy to be like —whoa —I’m not going near that dark uncomfortable stuff. It’s scary. Digging in the dirt or the muck of stuff that happens to us helps us to ground our energy in a deeper way. Collectively, I don’t think we’re grounding each other these days enough.

Here are some ideas I’d like to reiterate from the show if you’re looking for support:

“We can’t solve problems using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” ~ Albert Einstein

Healing opportunities are not talked about enough.

The #MeToo movement is powerful, courageous and critically important. Women are using their voice to say “no more.” There is strength in numbers and it’s great to see women speaking their truth to create significant change regarding sexual harassment, assault and rape.

Where are the conversations or stories about healing? There’s not enough sharing about how someone healed their trauma.

To sit in the muck of pain, anger, violation, shame and feeling like you don’t have a choice and your power is diminished is self-defeating and keeps you at victim rather than in your personal power.

Feels like a lot of conversation regarding #MeToo involves fighting. I’m not a huge fan of fighting. I fought for too long and it’s just exhausting and zapped my creative energy. Fighting creates friction – I’m right you’re wrong; my opinion is good – yours is bad.

Rather than judge or sit in the harsh feelings of fight or flight – let’s Tend and Befriend

Not familiar with tend and befriend?

I’m a believer in directing energy rather than fighting. It’s possible to forcefully direct your energy without negatively crashing into the walls of your point of conflict or getting stuck in your own personal chrysalis of #metoo – or any other intense transition.

You’ve probably heard about the stress response – fight or flight. Women also handle threats by the tend and befriend stress response that relates to women’s ability to care for others and create strong social connections. The American Psychological Association suggests that tend and befriend counteracts the negative impact of stress – increased cortisol levels, heart rate, blood pressure and feelings of isolation and overwhelm.

The more women tend & befriend, I think it opens a wider door or gateway to seeing there is an empowered choice available.

The more we choose to collaborate and share our stories with each other and support one another rather in our healing process rather than blame or judge, then the stronger possibility and ability to transcend and transform from abuse and silence.

You don’t have to do it alone.

Now here’s a contradiction of sorts. You don’t have to do it alone but your healing process is unique to you. The details of your story and circumstance matter … because it’s your life and you’re the one feeling what you’re feeling.

Knowing that there’s a door – that the caterpillar digests itself to transform into a butterfly next to others going thru a similar process – allows for confidence; a sense of hope that it is possible to get to the other side. You’re not alone.

For many experiencing trauma, it’s easy to try to think your way out of it, and/or disconnect from your body and feelings. By swallowing pain and shame, the weight of that energy sometimes ends up “down there.” What’s great about now is that women are reclaiming and remembering ancient wisdom about healing their womb and root energy centers.
Are some of these healing methods different than talking to a psychotherapist? Yes. Does therapy help a lot of women. Yes! It’s helped me.

But let’s not limit ourselves to approaching healing from a one option choice or needing to check one box off.

It’s important for women to learn/remember how to tap into their healing power and ability to create their dreams from varied possibilities.

I quickly mentioned a few names on the show. Here’s some more context or information about these healing opportunities.

If you’re thinking – Lorraine – this stuff is out there or too woo hoo. My response would be if you haven’t tried it, how do you know it’s not for you? Also and not necessarily related to sexual trauma but who knows – 25% of American women in their 40’s and 50’s are on anti-depressants! That’s a staggering number of ladies not feeling good in their skin.

Even if you haven’t experienced sexual trauma but you’re having painful periods or some imbalance going on down there….

“It is incredible that just through breathing and being with another human being my body and soul gets cleansed and healed from things that have stuck with me for perhaps my whole life, I had no idea that I carried them with me. It is such an enlightening and freeing experience that opens the way to a life full of new possibilities I couldn’t even have dreamed about.” – Katrin B.

“A splendid and warm workshop in which I not only felt connected to life, but also had the wonderful opportunity to experience the cumulative effect of many past workshops led by the Kanes. During the breath exercise, I really saw how thoughts are just thoughts (and usually not true), and how well in my own skin I have grown to feel. Magic – Thank you!!” – Erica O.

“Just through breathing I experienced a wonderful relaxation and met myself in a way I never did before. It was a beautiful journey and I discovered amazing things.” – Norman W.

At least half of us have experienced trauma, more commonly known as abuse, bullying or PTSD.

 

We often avoid using the word trauma by labeling abusers as controlling, manipulative, angry or cold. Somehow these terms make the abusers actions acceptable. They are not. Whether abuse is emotional, psychological, physical, sexual or financial, it causes deep wounds. The most harmful wounds are emotional. When the trauma is occurring, most people are not able to process what’s happening. They’re just trying to survive. The emotions have to go somewhere so they go deep into the body where they may hide for years causing physical, mental and emotional problems. The person disconnects from their body in order to not feel the pain. We all do this to some extent, like when someone says something cruel to us. To heal, we must reconnect with our bodies, which takes time and patience. Please join us Thursday to learn how you can reclaim your body, access its wisdom and heal from trauma.
