Blessings for Equilibrium

Life’s intensity can be stunning. And numbing. And exhausting. I’m not doing a very good job of keeping to an exercise regimen but my resilience muscle is getting a great workout every single day. Judging from the recent voicemails you’ve left, texts and emails you’ve written, experiences you’ve shared in session with me, many of you can relate.

 

I so wish I had the ability to make the problems of my loved ones, friends and clients just disappear with the “right” technique or prayer or philosophy.  What I can do is reverently hold your suffering in my heart with tenderness and compassion and acknowledge the grace of your day-to-day courage.

May this radiant piece lighten your spirit as it does mine.

            

For Equilibrium

 

Like the joy of the sea coming home to shore,
May the relief of laughter rinse through your soul.


As the wind loves to call things to dance,
May your gravity be lightened by grace.


Like the dignity of moonlight restoring the earth,
May your thoughts incline with reverence and respect.


As water takes whatever shape it is in,
So free may you be about who you become.


As silence smiles on the other side of what’s said,
May your sense of irony bring perspective.


As time remains free of all that it frames,
May your mind stay clear of all it names.


May your prayer of listening deepen enough
to hear in the depths the laughter of God.

May your Thanksgiving be a true celebration of blessings large and small. I count the faithful readers of this newsletter among my greatest blessings. Thank you! 

Until next month, remember: All is moving toward the good.

Someone to Watch Over Me makes a great gift!

 

Please add Someone to Watch Over Me to your list of supportive resources for children and adults. Here are some reasons why:

  • It's beautifully illustrated by visionary artist Mary Derrick

  • It offers 26 avenues of connecting with Heavenly Guides and Angels - one for each letter in the alphabet.

  • It can be a door to spirituality for children and adults who are aren't already oriented that way

  • It's non-denominational and non-religious so you don't have to worry about offending anyone you give it to

  • It is a keepsake hardcover workbook that the reader makes his/her own

  • It requires the reader's active participation through questions

  • It invites and fosters artistic imagination through the reader's own illustrations

  • It establishes life-long pathways for spiritual resourcing

  • It generates conversation and discussion about spirituality within families

  • It teaches kindness, compassion, confidence, inner peace and inner strength

  • It's simple enough for children and sustaining enough for adults

  • Autographed copies are available directly from me

  • Direct ordering is available from Amazon (qualifies for Prime shipping) and Barnes & Noble. See details below.

 

I now have copies available for purchase via PayPal which can be individually autographed and shipped as you wish. The cost per book directly from me is $19.95 + 8.5% sales tax and ground transportation costs. Both Amazon and Barnes & Noble are fulfilling orders within a couple of days and depending upon your account with those online retailers, you may qualify for free shipping.

Those of you who have taken the time and care to post your review of Someone to Watch Over Me on Amazon or Barnes & Noble, thank you very, very much! Those online reviews help tremendously to bring new awareness to the book.
 

My goal is 100 5-star reviews by December 31, 2017. Will you help me reach it? You don't have to have purchased the book on Amazon or Barnes & Noble to write a review of it on either site.

Craving More of A Higher Perspective?  

 

Interested in backstories of my practice? My blogs often highlight client experiences as well as links to articles in the media about all kinds of fascinating mind-body-spirit topics. You're always welcome to comment on what I post either on the blog itself or my A Higher Perspective Facebook or LinkedIn pages. Also, I'd love to connect with you via Twitter (@LucyGrace888).

A Portal of Grace  

 

The Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT) has been "a portal of grace." It's the newest technique in my celebrated mind-body-spirit toolbox and there's nothing else like it in the cutting-edge world of meridian therapies. If you enjoy the tranquility of meditation, then TAT may just be the mind-body-spirit avenue of healing for you. Even the creator of TAT, licensed acupuncturist Tapas Fleming , doesn't know exactly how TAT works - it just does. 

 

 

Tap It Away! 

 

I have been using The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) with adults, teens and children since 1997. A recent study confirms that there's nothing better than EFT for the stress carried by returning veterans. If you are interested in a copy of the study, please email me. My website has a lot more information about EFT, including client comments. EFT can be done in person, via Skype or by phone with outstanding results.

A Higher Perspective Anywhere! 

 

Skype sessions are now available for handwriting coaching, The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and the Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT).   I'm excited about bringing these extraordinary mind-body-spirit tools to a new, world-wide audience. Since I will be conducting all the Skype sessions in my San Ramon office, those clients will benefit from the high vibration so many of you have enjoyed there over the years. 

Trauma Relief 

 

In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, Boston TAT professional Patricia Thatcher put out a call to the TAT Professionals community worldwide for volunteers to join a Trauma Response Team . Along with many of my colleagues, I answered Pat's call.

 

Please keep me in mind as a resource in case of future need. I am available for three free TAT sessions via phone or Skype (preferred) in the aftermath of any natural or man-made disaster.

 

 

Success at Your Fingertips 

 

Believe it or not, writing in cursive is an important mind-body-spirit connection. Although handwriting originates in the part of the brain that's most capable of change, I've always thought of The Vimala System of Handwriting as success at your fingertips. Using The Vimala Alphabet in a daily handwriting practice offers incredible benefits to your mind, your body and your spirit. Check out Vimala Rodgers' wonderful alphabet for the 21st Century on my website; then call me to arrange a series of handwriting coaching sessions in person, via Skype or by phone.

 

Vimala Rodgers has designed a postage stamp using the Vimala Font. You can see and purchase it here.
