Tips Tuesday – TMI On Social Media

social media

HHHMMM A little Harsh?

Sorry, But Think about this for a second.

I’m in the industry that used to be known as ‘The First Impression Maker!

No longer can we hold this auspicious title.

Social media is now your official ‘First Impression Maker’.

SOOOOO…..

What does your social media say about you?  I had a conversation with a Networking ‘Friend’ on facebook.  She has just posted what I felt was a very authentic view of herself and I commended her candid and balance in her comment.

She had stated that she had noticed her efforts of late had slacked since she had first begun her journey in her efforts, however in observing this she realized how far she had come so quickly in her goals initially and how she was so proud of that fat.  She then realized she had strayed off course and had fallen prey to being busy and distracted.  After observing this of herself she sat in a state of recognition of her power to alter her current reality as she had before.  In realizing her ability to control her reality both in her initial success, followed by temporary distraction and back to balance she had the ability to not just re-attain her previous success but exceed it.

By sharing this story with her friends she showed that she was human, flawed but capable, and very accessible.

Generally when someone asks how we are doing, we say, ‘Good’ ‘Fine’ ‘Great’, many of us are afraid to show that we are human, that badge of honour connected to you have to be ‘Good’ no matter what stressors are in your life, because if anyone sees a chink in your armour its all over the façade it blown!  If you aren’t stressed you aren’t successful!   Maybe it’s not appropriate when someone asks how is business to say wow it sucks, it’s been slow and staff is hard to come by, but a happy medium might be good?  ‘How are you’, ‘I’m doing alright, family is healthy, business has been a bit slow but it fluctuates!’ This is a balance.  A realistic snap shot of reality, the good the bad and the neutral, life is neither good or bad, it’s how you perceive your reality.  I find it interesting how some pessimists label themselves realists.  Somehow these individuals believe that in order to be ‘realistic’ you must be negative or only see the negative side of the situation.  Being a Libra I am cursed, and blessed with seeing both sides, IN EVERYTHING!  Some people see this as indecisive, but in reality it is just reality.  In reality there are two sides to everything. ‘Negative’ and ‘Positive’.  In nature there just ‘IS’.  And if you mess with it you mess with the balance.  Listen I’m with ya, I hate watching the Lion catch the Gazelle on the nature shows, but what happens if there is no Lion? Everything is in a delicate balace.  And if you are too far one way or the other, you are out of balance.  Balance is crucial In health and when it comes to portraying yourself to others you might want to look at your social media pages for clues.

I often find it interesting how others perceive me.  We all have a different view on a situation. Five different people could go watch a movie and each one would have a view of the best and worst part, the parts they remembered or whether or not they would recommend it to others.  This is a reflection fo a whole other convo, one you could participate in this Saturday from 2:30-5:30 for our Writing On The Wall workshop.  It sheds light on how the brain is impacted at child hood and provides us with a filter we perceive our lives through, until we recognize our ability to alter the filter to become more balanced and less judgmental in our view point on life.

On the flip side what DOES your social media say about you?

Are you using it to vent, bad hair days, broken hearts, and lost causes?  How does this negative posting affect your friends and loved ones?  Those who love and support you might feel disappointed and hurt that the venting might show others that you don’t have the support and love from family that they do in reality provide, but that you in your perspective don’t see, or perhaps appreciate?   This results in ‘Un-Friending’ as many acquaintances might find the negativity too much, loved ones might feel the need to release the ties to protect themselves from the hurt it causes.

Are you posting rainbows and butterflies, or something in the middle.  I guess if your social media is a place where people are deriving ‘First Impressions’ from such as  future employers, romantic partners and networking contacts I guess this might be an area to look at what 1 dimensional perspective of ourselves we are displaying.  You can’t blame someone from being repelled by accessive negative posts, or concerned about inauthentic behaviour.  I will admit I’m a little further towards rainbows and butterflies, I guess I feel a need to swing the pendulum a little farther to the light side to offset all the negativity.

I also feel that social media is more of a place for inspiration and motivation.

 But hey, that’s just me!

Tips Tuesday – ‘Grounding’ C\O Kerstin Kramer @ HHDS

Enjoy! Erin

Practical Guide to Grounding 

Kerstin Kramer @ HHDS

There is more to your body than just what meets the eye. Beside your physical body you also have an energetic body surrounding you. Some people refer to this as your “aura” or “energy field”. In a healthy body your energy moves freely in, through and around your body, nourishing all of your vital organs and body systems. When you feel out of sorts, upset, or anxious the flow of that energy can become inhibited or blocked and sometimes we also draw too much energy in, which makes us feel exhausted or agitated.

Being able to “ground” yourself or to balance your energy is an important self-care tool, which can help tremendously in maintaining health & wellness. In this little guide I will share some insights on how to become aware of your own energy and how to dispose of any excess energy your body may hold!

What is grounding?

When we ground, we consciously realign our energy with that of the Earth. The Earth has been playing an important part in our wellbeing since the dawn of time, as it supports us and recharges our cells on a daily basis. Most of us feel very comfortable and grounded when we walk in bare feet along the beach – that is just one of those opportunities where we connect with the Earth in order to ground ourselves.

When we ground ourselves we recharge not just our physical body, but we also address any mental, emotional or spiritual concerns that have been lingering in our energy field. Through the process of grounding we also balance the electrical charges in our body – positive and negative.

How do I know if I need grounding?

Your body is in constant communication with you and sends signals to you, to let you know how balanced you are at any given day and time. Most of us do know when we feel well – that is when we feel upbeat, excited, happy, content, joyous and optimistic. On the other side of the coin, we can also tell when we feel “off”.

The following symptoms point towards your energy being out of balance, disconnected from Earth:

  • feeling moody, down or depressed
  • feeling angry, anxious or agitated
  • feeling lost, lethargic, slow or forgetful with a tendency to procrastinate
  • experiencing day dreaming, forgetfulness or feeling lost
  • experiencing weight gain, dizziness, headaches & migraines, nausea
  • experiencing sleep problems or falling asleep when meditating

How can I ground myself?

Some of the techniques that you can do to ground your body are already part of your daily life. If you can bring conscious awareness to these processes, you are able to truly benefit from these techniques and help your body come back to balance in an effortless way.

Connect with nature and the earth:

  • Walk barefoot on the ground, at the beach or in your garden
  • Spend time in your garden, connecting with the earth and the plants
  • Touch or climb a tree or simply sit under it to read a book or have a picnic
  • Walk, jog or meditate outside
  • Take relaxing showers and imagine the water cleansing your physical & energy body

Incorporate the grounding colour red into your life:

  • Wear red socks or underwear
  • Wear red shoes
  • Add more red colour to your home

Expose your body to movement & vibration:

  • Jump up and down on the spot
  • Practice drumming with drums
  • Exercise by practicing Yoga or squats
  • Stomp your feet on the spot

Consume foods that are very grounding in nature:

  • Eat root veggies
  • Eat sweet potatoes & yams
  • Eat good quality proteins (eggs, nuts & meats)

Add grounding stones to your jewellery:

  • Select hematite, obsidian, black tourmaline, ruby or onyx
  • Choose a special stone that you picked up from a favourite place that you visited

Use essential oils in a diffuser or on your skin:

Incorporate holistic modalities:

  • Reiki (very grounding, balances energy)
  • Reflexology (brings awareness to your foot, opens up root chakra)

Tips Tuesday – Mental Health Week

Celebrating Mental Health Week At HHDS

mental health week #1

Isn’t this a rosy picture?

This is what most people picture when they think of people who are truly mentally well.

But I have news for you!

It Ain’t All that Rosy all the time.

There is without a doubt varying degrees of Mental Health.

I had someone ask me the other day, (we had just met and had exchanged some personal info while I was styling her hair) “How do you stay so positive and happy?” Without even thinking I said, “Well, I guess I’m ok with not being happy all the time.” After I thought about it and realized how very important that statement had been. I love when my higher self takes over spontaneously and I get the chance to observe it later. I realized that in that statement resided the root of true happiness. Being ok with not being happy all the time allowed for acceptance. When we accept we stop resisting, and forcing outcomes. I realized that it is impossible to be happy all the time. It is unrealistic to assume that would be the definition of true Mental Health. I realized that when I was worried about the past or revisiting a painful memory this caused me unhappiness and I could choose to not live in that despair by releasing the past. I realised that by not resisting the natural flow of life which meant resisting change, allowed life to flow through me so I didn’t experience the feeling of fear of what was to come or anger for either losing what I have to make room for something better. I realized that resisting what was to come for fear of something bad happening actually prevented me from enjoying the experience of life and being disappointed that everything didn’t happen as I planned it. Actually it has been my experience of 40 years that usually everything turns out better then I could have planned and I am very often grateful for unanswered prayers because the universe truly knows best. I’m not saying I don’t still get tripped up and think of someone or something in the past that maybe has hurt me, but I release them and thank you for th lessons I learned from that experience. I still make plans and try to manifest ‘The Big Picture’ but if plans fall through I don’t get so attached, I and believe something better is in the works. When I manifest I ask that what I ask for or something better come to fruition, so if what I hoped for doesn’t happen, I know something greater is planned for me.

I know for many people this seems a little too idealistic, but I will tell you what has gotten me here.

Holistic Life Coaching

and

Energy Psychology

In training for my certifiecation to become a Holistic Life Coach I had no choice but to become the observer in my life and clear myself of everything that had held me back. The best part was that I was in the drivers seat with the best of co pilots. I loved how as I learned to become a Holistic Life Coach I had to travel through the good the bad and the ugly!

This has made me a better more empathetic Holistic Life Coach. I realize that we all start somewhere and we all have varying goals and different perspectives and approaches to our ideas of happiness and wellbeing.

I am so proud to be assisting others on their journey to more balanced Mental Health, and to celebrate this very important week to recognize this important awareness of equality and empathy I am offering 30 min Reiki and 30 min Holsitic Life Coaching package for only $50! Reg $80!
