HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Posted by on Dec 30, 2013

As 2013 comes to a close it can be a time of reflection and a time for planning the upcoming year.  Some may make resolutions for the new year, others may perform a life inventory of the past year.  Still others may float through the holiday without giving it a second thought.  What do you do?

I have a 2 step process.  I enjoy doing a life inventory and acknowledging my accomplishments, both personally and professionally for the year.  It provides an occasion to celebrate with gratitude, all that I’ve done.  It also gives me an opportunity to look at the mishaps, as the observer, and discover what lessons were presented from going through the experience.  Being “the observer” provides valuable information and identifies patterns that can be changed. It is also a time to release everything that no longer serves me, whether it be old thought patterns and even relationships. Also I ask, what do I want to create in 2014? My goals are a guideline, they are not written in concrete as I know many things will shift and change along the way.  Maintaining a flexible attitude is crucial when looking at the future.  My focus is on feelings, how do I want to feel each and every day?

 There was a period in my life when I made the normal type resolutions for the New Year.  Loose X number of pounds, exercise more, eat healthier, give up chocolate, etc.  Last year I made a huge shift, as my resolution was very simple.  I would find joy in everything I did.  That was my goal, increase the joy in my life.  It didn’t matter to me what I was doing; scrubbing the toilet, doing laundry, going on a fabulous road trip, whatever, I would do it with more joy. Looking back I feel my success rate was good and it aided me throughout the year.  This year, in addition to finding joy in everything, I am pledging to celebrate my successes and treat myself with kindness and compassion; especially when things don’t go according to plan.

What do you want to create in 2014?   How do you want to feel in 2014?  Having someone in your corner, cheering you along in reaching your goals is very powerful.  It is a known fact, when you team up with someone who is dedicated to you and your goals, your goals become attainable.  A personal trainer pushes their client to reach fitness goals.  Professional athletes have many different types of coaches.  Business leaders hire business coaches.  How many times have you made resolutions and set goals for the new year only to fall short because you lost steam along the way?  Did it make you feel like you failed?   As much as we personally feel we can do it alone, we are not islands.  We are meant to work together, to partner with like minded people to reach our destiny.  Set yourself up for success from the very beginning.  Regardless if you hire me or find support from someone else.  This isn’t about me, it is about you reaching your destiny and being the very best that you can be.   Success is working towards something and remembering the goal may shift or change and that is perfectly fine. Step into your greatness and watch your dreams unfold.

 I wish you a very Happy New Year!  If I can be of service in anyway, please contact me at claudia@eiecoaching.com or (845) 787-4826.  As always, I welcome your comments, insights and feedback.

With gratitude,
Claudia

Happy Holidays

Posted by on Dec 23, 2013

My message this week is short.  The holidays are approaching fast.  A time of year that is full of hustle and bustle.  As you go through the next few days and you find yourself feeling anxious remember to breathe.  I realize it sounds simple; but how quickly we forget.  Deep “belly” breaths can calm you and allow you to become focused again.  Take notice of your body; where are your shoulders?  Do you find them scrounged up around your neck? Do you find you’re clinching your fists, or grinding your teeth while you sleep?  These are all signs of anxiety and stress.  Take a moment a few times throughout your day and breathe deeply for the count of 10.  You will discover your body relaxes and your mind focuses easily; releasing the tension and anxiety.

My wish for you….may you enjoy the warmth of the season, make wonderful memories with family and friends and if you celebrate the holidays I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and Happy Kwanzaa.

KINDNESS & COMPASSION

Posted by on Dec 17, 2013

It is the middle of December and Christians are counting down the days until Christmas; a holiday where the birth of Christ is celebrated.  It is also the time of year when Santa arrives and the exchange of gifts is a tradition for many.  The trees are trimmed and homes are decorated.  We uphold family traditions and create new ones of our own.  It is a joyful time of year; one where are primary focus is on others and we can imagine peace is possible for our planet.

As magical as the holidays are, for some it can be a time of extreme sadness or loneliness.  Perhaps they have suffered the loss of a loved one, or are dealing with financial or health issues.  It can be difficult just to get through a normal day and then the pressures of the holidays can be unbearable for some.  Statistics show suicide is at its highest rate during the holidays, as the overwhelming feeling of sadness or loneliness is too much to endure.  As is impossible to know every ones personal story, remembering we are all connected and being mindful of others while going about your day is a start.  Wearing a smile on your face and showing kindness to others may be the exact thing that could change a life.

There was a video posted on Facebook, perhaps you saw it.  A popular food company that runs ads that ask “What will you gain when you lose?” (Special K) depicts a very important message, they call it “fat talk”.  It is basically extremely negative self talk about body image.  I am not promoting any diet program or company; but I do feel the message is very powerful. The negative self talk has a major impact on our lives.  It’s a cancer and as it grows it takes over everything that we think and feel.  It can make us physically ill and affects all areas of our lives.   If you’re wondering what this has to do with my topic “Kindness and Compassion”…it all starts from within.  We cannot give what we do not have.  In order to change anything outside of ourselves we must first change within.  There is always room to love yourself a little more.  Notice how your self talk affects you and the people around you.  Awareness is the first step to change.  Take a stand when your family or friends engage in negative talk.

What would our world look like if we collectively carried over the kindness and compassion we show during this magical time of year to everyday of our lives?  Even one step further, what would total acceptance of others look like? Can you imagine it?  Change is possible and when a group of dedicated individuals commit to change, everything is conceivable.  The ripple effect is huge.

I am getting a head start on a New Year’s Resolution and taking the pledge to treat myself with kindness, compassion and be in total acceptance of who I am.   I further pledge that when I falter I will pause, breathe and then continue on my quest, showing myself kindness and compassion along the way.   I invite you to take the pledge with me. Together we can learn how to love ourselves just a little more and loving ourselves will impact our reality in a spectacular way.

I look forward to hearing from you so please post your comments on my page www.facebook.com/eiecoahcing or contact me by email claudia@eiecoaching.com

Looking for Inspiration

Posted by on Dec 9, 2013

My deadline is approaching and I ask what do I write about this week?  Normally by Sunday afternoon I have the weekly message figured out or I am putting the final touches on my article; but this week I am still looking for a topic.  What do my followers want to read about, I ask?

Inspiration comes to me in many different ways.  I may see or hear something and think, yes that is good information to share.  I may wake up in the middle of the night with an idea and because this happens frequently I now keep a note pad by my bed to scribble things down.  Sometimes, I am moved to get out of bed and write at that very moment.  I may get an idea while I’m in the shower or washing dishes; something about running water propels me to be creative.   Sometimes it is just sitting with the silence, opening my mind and freeing my thoughts that allows the inspiration to shine through.  It is all divine.

I no longer beat myself up and I find that showing myself kindness allows my creativity to flow effortlessly.  Putting the beat up stick away, or in my case breaking it in two was a really big and important step for me to take.

We tend to be hard on ourselves when things do not happen instantly.  We live in a world of instant gratification and it has trained us to be impatient with ourselves.  When we can slow down and practice patience things just happen with very little effort.  It is really living in the moment and being appreciative for the abundance that surrounds us at all times.  I think sometimes we just make life so much harder than it needs to be by setting unrealistic expectations.  Learning to be kind to yourself takes practice.  It is natural for us to think we are wrong and our internal dialog can be very cruel.  We say things to ourselves that we would never think of saying to a loved one.  Sometimes we are not even aware we are beating ourselves up, it is second nature to us.  So pay attention; become the observer of your thoughts and the next time your internal dialog becomes disrespectful or hateful towards yourself just stop.  Counter those statements with kindness and compassion; it will make a huge difference in your life.

 

Have a blessed week, my friends!

With Gratitude,
Claudia

The Power of Love

Posted by on Dec 1, 2013

We hear it all the time, love is the most powerful energy of all.  With love all lower energies are transmuted completely.  Unconditional love and acceptance of self attracts the same loving energy.  It sounds easy right?  A very simple concept to love oneself completely and totally.  Why is it so hard to do at times?

Each of us are on our own path.  Our life lessons are different.  I believe we choose the life lessons we want to experience, prior to being born.  We entered into soul contracts with other souls so we may learn these lessons.  How we learn these lessons is our choice, as it can be joyful or painful.

Loving and accepting ourselves for exactly who we are and self-forgiveness for the things or behaviors we don’t like can be a life mission.  At least it has been for me.  As I’ve grown spiritually I have seen improvement in the way I view myself.  I am much more loving and accepting of myself then I was 10 years ago.  Most of the time I am able to put the beat up stick away and forgive myself; but honestly on occasion I falter and go back to my old thought patterns.  I think it is human nature for us to be critical of ourselves, to hold ourselves to a higher standard than what we hold others to.  Sometimes the standards are set so high that it is impossible to feel successful.  We sabotage ourselves, feeling we’ve failed; and although it feels genuine when we are in the thick of it, it is just an illusion.  Honoring myself, my desires and feelings is an area I continually work on.  At time I tend to be over accommodating with the people in my life; putting their needs and desires ahead of mine.  The message I send to myself on a sub-conscious level is, they are more important than I am.  With practice and awareness this pattern is changing in my life.

It is healthy and acceptable to set boundaries and ensure your needs are met first.  Becoming a better communicator, letting people in your life  know how you’re feeling is a critical step.   Sometimes we think everyone knows how we feel and expect their behavior to change.  The truth is it isn’t about them, it is about us.  We teach others how to treat us. Honest communication of our feelings and defining what is acceptable behavior leads to loving and compassionate relationships.  Are there times when we get to be in service to others?  Yes absolutely; we take care of children, significant others, parents, siblings, friends.  We commit our time to charity organizations and communities and these are all part of living a healthy life.  When it becomes unhealthy is when there is no balance or harmony.  Giving all of your time to serve others leaves a void in your heart.   It can make us feel unappreciated or unloved.  Striving for the harmony, the gentleness of giving and receiving is the only way to feed your soul and totally love and honor yourself.

The good news is at any point in your life you can change your thoughts and challenge your old ways of doing things.  We individually have the power of choice and we can choose differently.  It is never too late to learn how to appreciate the unique person that you are and to forgive yourself of past errors or behaviors.  Forgiving yourself is extremely powerful and is the first step to open the doorway to loving oneself completely and unconditionally.
