A few weeks ago I sent out an announcement about my upcoming Energy Therapy trainings:
June 10, 11th at Red Mountain Spa June 24,25th in Boise, Idaho
They are filling up, but we still have room in both of them, if you or someone you know is interested. It seems everyone knows at least someone who is into "energy" -Your 'kooky' neighbor, or sister-in-law perhaps?? Please forward this on to them. I believe there are no accidents, and it may be just what they (or you) have been looking for.
No previous experience is necessary, just an open mind and heart. These techniques are easy to learn yet very powerful in their ability to change lives for the better.
Here's what one former participant had to say:
"This energy stuff is new for me, so although my heart told me to take your class, my head was still a bit hesitant, but once I got there I knew it was right for me. I loved the other students I met and I loved how you made us feel so comfortable even though we were all at different levels of learning. Thanks for taking time to explain things to me. I have already been able to use so much of what I learned. It is so easy to apply, that the day after the training I worked on my brother who is going through a divorce and having some self-worth issues coming up. He was very grateful for the help and I was so happy I could assist him in such a profound way! I have also been working on my dog, he hardly limps any more! This is amazing stuff! Thanks Carolyn, you are truly a gifted teacher!" -Amy D.

Featured Article: Powerful Affirmations
How do you feel right now? Do you feel good? Do you feel bad? What are your current emotions? What is your gut feeling? Would you like to feel better? Then reach for a better feeling or thought.. Last month's newsletter article was about the Law of Attraction and how the thoughts we vibrate create our life by attracting back to us what we have sent out. (If you missed it you can read it at www.taichiflow.com/news.htm) Remember, your behaviors always align themselves with your belief system, so it is important to stay with the vibrationally higher thoughts such as gratitude, joy, hope and love. The more you talk about a problem, the more you anchor it in place. Do you choose to reinforce positive or negative neuro-pathways in your brain? Affirmations are solutions that will replace whatever problem you might have. According to Louise Hay in her fabulous little book, I Can Do It, "Affirmative statements are going beyond the reality of the present into the creation of the future through the words you use in the now". Listed below are some positive affirmations from Carol Tuttle's "Powerful Affirmations to Change Your Life Now!" CD:
I am physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally balanced and healthy
I am joyful for the success of others
Money supports me / Money is my friend
There is enough money for everyone There is plenty for me
I am no longer attaching my self-worth to my doings
I bring out the best in other people
I am heard / I am understood I am supported / I live and move in joy
I receive my lessons and awareness quickly and I am free to heal
I am receiving inspiration that comes to me effortlessly
I am experiencing my relationships getting better and better all the time
I am validating my children's emotions
I forgive myself for the times that I have judged myself for not doing well enough
I have healthy boundaries
I am attracting that which brings me joy
This is only a sampling of the many powerful affirmations included on Carol's CD available at www.taichiflow.com/products.htm Simply listening to it will raise your energy level! To checkout her many other empowering CDs on a variety of topics click here: www.taichiflow.com/products/ Doing affirmations is consciously choosing to think certain thoughts that will create positive results in the future. They create a focal point that will allow you to begin changing your thinking, which in turn can change your life.
I hope you got a chance to participate in World Tai Chi/Qigong Day last month. I realize not every town has a school or instructor to organize such an event. We had a fun class at my local park. And there was even a big picture of me teaching in our local newspaper the next day! I am happy this yearly event is getting so much recognition. To see photos of celebrations from around the world go to: http://worldtaichiday.org/WTCQDPHOTO2005.html If you scroll to the bottom of each page you can click a link to take you to the next page of photos. When you have a few minutes check it out-there are about 50 pages of really great TC day photos from all over the world! Are any of our newsletter subscribers in any of them?
I want to share with you a new product I have recently found and I love! Road ID tags are small metal tags that include your vital information-name, address, phone number, etc (you choose what to put on it). They lace onto your shoes, or can be worn on your wrist or ankle. Now, you know my intention is never to attract any sort of 'accident' to myself, but hey, I wear a helmet when I go cycling, I wear my seatbelt in my car, and now I never go out for a run without having some identification on me. If you are a walker, runner, cyclist, jogger, hiker, climber, skater, skier, boarder, or someone who just doesn't spend all of their time on the couch go to: www.roadid.com/?referrer=2238 and order yours today!
Here are two wonderful quotes with the same message written nearly a century apart:
"The activities we observe in the outer world are but typical of that which is taking place in man's inner world of thought and feeling." Charles Brodie Patterson, Mind magazine, 1899
"If we don't like what's happening to us in the world, all we have to do is change our consciousness-and the world out there changes for us!" Lester Levinson, Keys to the Ultimate Freedom, 1993
Create a great day! Carolyn
