“Like the final stages of birth, the manifestation process—the embodiment of Heaven’s vision and Human intention—can be hard labor. When whatever you are creating is ready to be born, you need to summon your resolve to give a final push.”The Way of Joy
Now that the holiday season and the beginning of a new calendar year is really over, it can be a challenge to really drop old patterns of beliefs and behaviors that hold you back from going for what you want.
In an earlier vlog, Dealing with Resistance, I spoke about one way to work around blocks. Today I want to speak about another…
Remember, regardless of how, every time you intentionally put your intentions into your actual physical body, (as opposed to simply good thoughts or focused will-power) you create an energetic support system that will carry you to the changes you want to make.
It’s not too late to join the Sustain the Flame video teaching and tele-series to make those recent New Year’s resolutions STICK. Let’s go for it together and make 2013 unlike any other!
The magic of creating something extraordinary out of the ordinary may sometimes seem way out of reach. However, I believe any time you’ve had an image of something you’d like to have happen in your life that actually did happen, you mastered, for that moment, the Earth realm of manifestation…How we work our intention is a determining factor in how well we stay on track. The Way of Joy
About a month ago, I had a vision of a large number of people moving qi together to create the year ahead with empowered synergy. When it actually happened, it went beyond my expectations —what a Rush!
Even more important is the people who joined me there, a group of highly conscious and visionary people, are even as I type, gestating their visions for healing, creation and limitless possibilities for paradigm shifts both internal and in the world.
I’d love you to join us with Part 1 of one of the Way of Joy Qigong empowerment forms we practiced together.
To learn this whole form and join the movement to create 2013 with Embodied Intention, please check out this upcoming Tele-series by emailing me at email@example.com
Although I haven’t yet read Wayne Dyer’s book with this title, I think the concept is so essential for the planetary and global shift that mystics and sages tell us is happening right now. I’ve certainly been seeing startling evidence of it in my own life as well as hearing from other people how this message has landed for them.
In Qigong terms, it’s all about bringing Heaven energy down to Earth — walking the talk of our visions and inspiration and making them happen in real time and in a tangible way. Many people fall into the trap of thinking they can just speak affirmations and they will come true. But it is only when you feel your beliefs from the inside out, you begin to radiate an energy that filters information in a way that enables those beliefs to live and breathe.
FREE EVENT COMING UP!!Nourish the Flame: A Winter Workshop in Way of Joy Qigong. Launch 2013 with renewed clarity, purpose, and vitality by giving yourself the time, space and energetic support to manifest your goals for the year ahead. Dec 30 11 AM-3 PM
In the past several decades, science has uncovered more and more about the relationship between mind and body, a connection that Western culture has traditionally polarized. Research findings increasingly demonstrate that our cells retain early emotional shocks and traumas, that the bio-chemical structure of our bodies carries our feelings, that what a person believes can literally alter their genetic structure…and the mind-body is one holistic entity. The Way of Joy
One of the best ways to initiate real positive change in your life is to infuse your body with your intention. For people who practice various kinds of affirmations to jump-start new solutions or create a shift in awareness, I think qigong is an invaluable tool to unite and align your thoughts, heart and physical body.

So many people have been curious about the title of my one act, What’s Wrong with a Mouse? I thought this week I’d offer a show-and-tell.
To set the scene: My father disowned me for more than 20 years, first because I was living with a boyfriend, and then later when he figured out that I’m gay (talk about a no-win choice!) However, during the last several years of his life, we began to reconcile. I think we were able to come to a genuine peace between us by the end of his life because I worked hard both with Way of Joy Qigong ™ to pivot my internal energy and with Powerful Non-Defensive Communication™ to change how I responded to him. One year before he died, we had several transformative conversations: Here is one of them:

When you Embrace Wholeness (Tao), you move into a state of wisdom—fully present with all-that-is—without falling into the trap of polarities—good/bad, doing/being, expanding/contracting, etc…The Observer Self provides the key that opens us to that larger vision, creating a personal connection to the cosmos. —The Way of Joy
Have you ever felt joy in your heart at the very same time you had tears in your eyes? This might have happened during times of great joy—such as seeing a new-born baby—or times of profound sorrow, such as saying a final goodbye to a person or animal companion when you are acutely aware of the deep love you have shared at the same time you feel struck down with grief and loss.
I believe with all of my heart that it is only when we truly embrace the whole of our experience, we are able to live our lives with presence and power
