Health is an Inside Job

To be healthy is to be happy on all levels physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. And to be happy is to be healthy on all levels physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. It sounds like an easy remedy and the good news is, it can be. You can start right where you are, just the way you are.

It all starts with self-love. It is easy to love yourself when all is going well and according to your plans. However, can you love yourself when you just lost your job, or your partner chooses to leave the relationship you’ve been in for ten years?? Can you love yourself when you’ve been diagnosed with arthritis, cancer or any aliment?? How about when someone close to you makes their transition?

These are the times when you need to rely on the reserves of love you have for yourself. Remember the time you succeeded in achieving your goal? You got the job, finished running the 5K, or sold the first pair of earrings you made? What about when you really wanted to move and you did, or when it was best for you to leave a relationship you have been in for a while and you did. How about when you took your first Resonance Repatterning® seminar and you said to yourself, “I am going to go for my professional certification”, and you did. Remember the energy you had when you accomplished your goal? Remember how you celebrated?? This is the energy, the love within, that you can rely on now to help you when you need it the most, for your health.

For the past year, when I have found myself in a growth opportunity, I have used the simple phrase, ‘what would love do right now?’ I may not have been able to do what Mother Teresa would do; however, I’d always do something more loving than I would have done before asking the question. I have shared this phrase with several of my clients, colleagues and friends. They have all shared amazing stories of the difference this inquiry has made. You too can apply this to every area of your life.

Let’s start with physically. What would love do right now? Love might look in the mirror and say, “I love you and accept you just the way you are, and I want to live a long healthy life. To do that I will find a food plan that supports my well-being, I will go for a walk out in nature every morning, I will get my teeth cleaned, take up yoga, get my eyes examined, etc.” Be sure to follow-up on these ideas or they are just that, ideas.

Emotionally, what would love do right now? Perhaps, love would apologize for something you said that you really didn’t mean to say during a recent argument. Love would forgive someone who you perceived harmed you. Love might take the risk to love again, to share your deep feelings. Remember the quote, ‘I would have rather have loved and gotten hurt, than to have never loved.’ What are you waiting for? I have a quote on my refrigerator by Erica Jong that says “If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.” Wow, how true. What are the steps you can take to open your heart again? Who would you feel safe having a Resonance Repatterning® session with? Call them, make an appointment and keep the appointment. It is never too late to have a fabulous love life if that is something you want.

Mentally, what would love do right now? Love might take the time to focus and get really clear on your goals and write them down. Don’t forget the ‘by when’. Love would get the support you need to accomplish your goals. Love would ask for help. Love would change your attitude and be more optimistic. Perhaps love would write down on paper all the lists you have in your head to create some free moments in your mind. Then love would make a plan to complete the tasks on your list.

Spiritually, what would love do right now? Love might take time each morning to connect with your inner Divinity, even just for twenty minutes. It would also be beneficial to do the same thing right before bed; being grateful for the day with all its wondrous moments and even the less than wonderful ones. The more peaceful you are before sleep, the more restful and rejuvenating your sleep will be.

Every moment you are being given an opportunity to be happy and healthy; to grow and transform. When you engage fully in life, life can fully engage with you. I sometimes tell people that I live out on the skinny branches of life. It is not always easy however, the rewards are extraordinary.

You are responsible for the quality of your life. Take time to nurture yourself. Be good to yourself. Love yourself. Love yourself to wholeness.

Personal Bio I like to think of myself as a fun-loving, optimistic woman up to big things in life. I have a full and rich life. I was raised in Milwaukee with my three siblings who I helped raise and moved to Chicago alone when I was twenty, not knowing anyone. I spent my young adult years there doing ultrasound on pregnant women for eighteen years. In that time, I was married and divorced twice to two wonderful men then moved to Phoenix. I had a work related injury and re-careered as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I soon got frustrated with the lack of results I was getting with my clients and went out on my own to study Resonance Repatterning®, which I have been doing now for the past twenty years. (I know you are doing the math.) :) :) I have a wonderful man in my life. I call him my 'Beloved Bernie'. We have been together nine years now and continue to inspire each other’s greatness! I love to travel from camping to 'all inclusive' five-star resorts and everything in-between. My favorite is tropical beaches. I plan to live on one someday, perhaps Belize. I love dancing, singing, golf, writing, movies and special times with friends. My purpose is to experience love, fulfillment, adventure and joy, and I inspire and empower others’ greatness to live extraordinary lives. My commitment is to live my life from my divine essence of love and truth, making a significant difference in the lives of those I come in contact with. Business Bio Victoria is committed to helping you live a life you love - a life where you can hardly wait to get up and one that is overflowing with love, joy, passion and fulfillment. She has been a Certified Resonance Repatterning® Practitioner since 1994 and former Teacher for fifteen years. She is a Professional Counselor and has used Resonance Repatterning® and eight other methods rather than psychotherapy, with her clients for the past 20 years. The others methods include: Grigori Grabovoi Method, Matrix Energetics®, Scalar Heart Connection™, Soul Memory Discovery, Spiritual Healing for Indigos™, Spiritual Response Therapy®, Thought Field Therapy™, Yuen Method™. She opened the "Center for Extraordinary Outcomes" in 1996 and has a successful full time practice which continually inspires and fulfills her. She has served on the Certification Committee for the Repatterning Practitioners Association and on the Board of Directors for five years providing Repatternings for the Board members as well as writing the “Certification Corner” articles for the Journal. Although is no longer on the Board, she does continue to write articles on various topics for the quarterly Journal. Out of her passion and commitment to help people achieve their goals and dreams, she developed her ‘Heal Your Birth Journey-Heal Your Life’ Workshop, which clears unconscious patterns from conception, through the gestation and during the birth journey. She has been leading this workshop for over six years and has made a huge difference in the lives of many. She has recently developed another workshop called, ‘Heal Your Family System – Heal Your Life’ which she began offering in the fall of 2015. She also penned five books – the first, “What Would Love Do Right Now?” will be available in print and e-book this spring. Publishing these books is her way to make a difference on a larger scale. The other titles are, "Living on the Skinny Branches of Life", Relationship - A Sacred Journey to Your Greatness", "Three Magical Words", "Conversations with the Fairy Realm" and "Adventures with the Fairy Realm". Victoria is available for workshops and in-person and/or phone sessions for individuals, couples, groups, families and businesses.
