The Real Reason People Retire?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I wish an elder had told me the truth about aging—and what is perhaps the real reason people retire.

I never wanted to retire. I am one of the fortunate ones who loves what I do and feels a sense of calling, which motivates me afresh whenever my resolve wanes.

And it’s waning more and more. Not because I don’t love my work, but because of the demands of the current season of my life.

Demands I wish someone had told me ahead of time.

But you see, in Western culture, we don’t like to talk about aging. Nor do we respect the wisdom of elders, by and large. Old age is seen as a time of decline, of growing less and less useful, of more dependency.

I don’t think it has to be that way. It’s each elder’s responsibility to do all we can to age well.

It’s quite possible. But it’s also more time-consuming than I ever imagined. Read More→

What Healing Codes Should I Use For ____?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

A reader, Kimel, sent me an email with the following question:

I am 70. I bought the Healing Codes Manual years ago. Is there a code for improving balance and gait?

woman walking on train railwayThere is no specific code for that specific issue, or any physical issue per se, for that matter. The Healing Codes heal the negative energy in your body that it is stored in the negative images, beliefs, and memories that I believe are held in an energetic pattern in the DNA or cell.

However, when you do that—change that energy from negative to neutral or even positive–the ripple effects in the whole person, including the body, are seen and felt.

Eventually.

It often doesn’t happen over night, as most physical issues, by the time they show up in the body, have a number of contributory memories, feelings, and beliefs feeding into the problem.

I say that because another question a client asked recently was whether The Healing Code work, even if you don’t “feel” anything.

My answer to that is yes. The proof is the countless clients who “didn’t feel any changes,” but when they got their yearly checkups, for instance, their blood work showed former problems have been cleared up. Or their cancer markers went down, or whatever.

I remember when my mother was alive and I was giving her weekly custom Healing Codes, the changes I saw were profound. More peace, happier, and she was even winning most of the time at Scrabble in her weekly game times with her sister! (A fact that greatly chagrined her sister.) Yet Mom didn’t herself notice any differences.

Back to Kimel’s question: what Healing Codes can he use for greater balance?

First he can ask himself how he feels about the need for greater balance? Is he fearful of falling? How strong is that fear? Where does he feel it in his body? As he tunes in to that sensation, can he think of another time he felt that kind of fear or physical sensation, about anything at all?

If he does remember, that’s the memory to start working on. And the category would be Peace, as that’s the opposite of fear. Since he has the Healing Codes Manual, he can look under the Peace category and pinpoint the negative emotions, harmful action (worry), and unhealthy beliefs listed under that category.

Since balance and gait are also connected to both the nervous system and the musculoskeletal systems, he can also focus on the Codes for Kindness and Self-control, respectively.

I have always been amazed at how the “heart issues” correlate to the body systems as was revealed to Alex Loyd. When I have a skin issue, I look for Joy issues. Sure enough, I find them. For the chronic issues that I’ve been diagnosed with, working on the corresponding categories brought resolution of most of them. When they pop up again, as respiratory issues did recently, I focused on shame, guilt, and “not enough” from the Goodness category. And the physical issues are abating.

Another option for Kimel or anyone is to work through the Healing Code categories in 3-day sets, praying that all issues connected to balance and gait be found, opened, and healed.

For Kimel’s issue, he would focus on those two main categories (Kindness for nervous system, Self-Control for musculoskeletal), and also, on each third day, go through all the Healing Codes categories.

So he might do the Codes for the nervous system on Days 1 and 2, then on Day 3 do the Forgiveness code (working through the 12 categories), and Days 4 and 5 the musculoskeletal system, day 6 the next of the 12 categories (Harmful Actions), Days 7 and 8, nervous system, day 9, Unhealthy Beliefs, and so forth, alternating the categories in that way.

As you can see, there are several ways to approach healing an issue with The Healing Codes, whether it’s a physical, emotional, or relational issue. The Healing Codes heal the “heart issues” that are the source of any issue.

By the way, there is more and more research and evidence for this idea that the emotional/spiritual issues truly are at the heart of any physical issue. Gabor Maté, MD, has written and spoken extensively on this topic. He has numerous YouTube videos you can look up, and his books, When the Body Says No: Understanding the Stress-Disease Connection and The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture, clearly explain how the body and mind/spirit are one.

In the latter book he acknowledges energy medicine, among other approaches, as an important and valid approach to healing. The key is “the individual’s active, free, and informed choice.”

By engaging in regularly doing The Healing Codes, you are activating your free and informed choice to heal. And that can do wonders.

Placebo effect? You Decide . . .

Posted by: | Comments (0)

When I talk to friends (who don’t understand about energy medicine) about The Healing Codes, I often get something like, “Well, it’s just the placebo effect. You believe it will work, so it does.”

I don’t think we should knock the placebo effect; it can be quite helpful in healing.

However, I think there is a lot of evidence from experience that the effects of The Healing Codes go beyond the placebo effect.

For instance, did you know you can do Healing Codes for animals? No possible placebo effect there.

What about babies? Or people who don’t even know you’re doing Codes for them?

Here is an email I got this week from a reader, Brenda.

I have been doing the Healing Code quite intensively for a week or so – for myself, then for my husband, then for my little dog.

I do the Code on my husband, who has suffered for years with Post Viral Syndrome. He doesn’t know about it because I wanted to see if anything would happen. Two days ago he came down to breakfast and said, ‘I don’t know why but that wretched brain fog seems to be going.’

Eureka!

As for my very nervous little dog who ran away when anyone came into the house, he has taken to greeting them with a kiss and a waggly tail.

Eureka!

Eureka indeed! Two instances in which the person or animal being targeted for healing could not possibly be subject to the placebo effect, as there was no awareness of something being done for them.

Since I like to understand why things happen, I have thought a lot about how The Healing Codes work.

I keep coming back to what Albert Einstein said, more than 100 years ago: everything is energy. If you change the energy, you change the effect.

And—the more foundational truths are non-physical. The source of the physical is always the non-physical–the spiritual or energetic.

How do The Healing Codes work specifically to change the energy? The theory is that the Code sends out to the healing centers (which act like a fuse box for the whole body) a signal that is the opposite and equal energy pattern of the “issue” you’re working on—much like noise-canceling headphones.

Another analogy I like to use is that of a garage door opener. Maybe you have a keypad in which you punch a certain code, and the garage door opens. Or perhaps you have a remote control that sends out a signal that is then decoded to cause a certain effect, i.e. open the garage door.

We use energy and codes every day for so many things: TV remotes, cell phones. Now you can even talk to your device and it does what you want! Do we think it’s “voodoo”? No, because we have a sense that there’s some kind of science that explains how it works, even if we’re not interested in the details.

In the same way, you can use The Healing Codes to “neutralize” the negative energy patterns in the memories, thoughts, feelings you want to heal. I think of these patterns as energy information patterns in our DNA, that then may turn on or off certain genes, and may cause cells in your body to go into a disease state rather than a healthy repair and growth state. Our very DNA is a code, right? I believe that everything in nature boils down to codes; it’s behind the intelligence of the cells that was coded by the Creator.

The question is, will you harness the blessing of this modality for your benefit, or ignore it because you don’t understand it or want some kind of “proof.” (Actually, there are now studies on The Healing Codes, which is heartening.)

If you know someone who needs The Healing Codes and might be open to them if they had an explanation of how they work, pass on this blog link with a personal note from you.

FOMO, FOMSI and POMO

Posted by: | Comments (2)

You’ve probably heard the term FOMO-the Fear Of Missing Out.

This seems to be a fundamental human fear. We don’t want to miss an opportunity. We don’t want to miss having fun.

I have struggled with FOMO. As I’ve worked with it, however, I discovered a perhaps deeper fear: the Fear Of Missing Something Important (FOMSI).

With so many moving parts to my life, with so many details to handle, FOMSI is something I often find myself doing Healing Codes for.

A traumatic background doesn’t help. Growing up with Childhood Emotional Neglect meant that I had to deal with life on my own. If I missed something important, I’d suffer for it. Trauma can lead to the negative coping style of hypervigilance, which is very stressful. It keeps your nervous system in fight/flight mode.

Some of the thoughts/beliefs (often unconscious) that fuel FOMSI are:

  • I have to get it right, or else!

  • If I miss an important detail, something disastrous will happen.

  • Nobody has my back; it’s all on me.

  • There’s too much to deal with; I can’t handle it.

  • I might need [to do, now, have] that.

The feelings of FOMSI are anxiety, fear, and overwhelm. Maybe helplessness, maybe anger too. Read More→

[FAQ] Healing Many Symptoms at Once

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Here is a question that came from someone who has several debilitating long COVID symptoms and is wondering how best to use The Healing Codes for healing. My answer would apply to any chronic symptoms.

Q: . . . Because of my debilitating symptoms from the long COVID, I can’t do any physical activity (not even cooking or cleaning), or I risk getting worse.

My question is: Should I work on these symptoms one by one until it gets better and then move on to the next symptom?

Or can I work on them all at the same time? But in that case, there are probably many emotional causes, which would make the prayer very long. And my mind could get confused by all that.

I don’t know what to do. Could you help me?

What’s more, there are symptoms where I’m not sure or I don’t know the emotional cause. So if I don’t know the cause, I can’t include it in the prayer. So I don’t know how to formulate the prayer. Could you explain?

A: Good questions! I’m sorry you have long COVID and so many symptoms, but rest assured, the Healing Codes approach is not that complicated.

Start with how you feel about the symptoms. For instance, it sounds like maybe fear is there, perhaps feeling trapped and frustrated. Or just the belief, “I can’t” (you say you can’t do any physical activity; was there ever a time when you felt like “I can’t” about anything at all?).

And then trace those feelings back, if you can, to other times when you felt that same way. When I say “feel,” it could be an emotion, but also pay attention to the sensation in your body as you open up to memories popping up.

If no memory/memories come up, no worries. It could mean that it’s too early a memory for you to drum up consciously, or that it’s a generational memory or other kind of “hidden memory.” Just put in the prayer of intention, when specifying the memory (see below for an example), “from the source memory.” Your heart and body know what it is.

Also see if there’s anything else associated with the feeling/sensation. I like to look for thoughts/beliefs that fuel the feeling, and see if there are any negative coping patterns you’ve developed to deal with the issue (isolation, numbing with some activity or substance, overdoing something like work or shopping, etc.).

If a memory does pop up, you can use that as the presumed source memory of your issue.

You don’t need to be concerned about “finding all the memories” or dealing with all the symptoms. If you can find the key feelings or beliefs or negative behaviors or memories, there is much attached to those that are subconscious but will be healed. That’s one of the best things about The Healing Codes!

Let’s say your main feeling is fear, and there’s the belief “I can’t,” and a memory comes up of when you were 4 years old and you wanted to do something but were afraid. Maybe your parent or other adult scolded you for wanting to do it, and said “you can’t,” and your little brain believed that.

Now you want to live a normal life and you have this long COVID thing going on. Perhaps that whole fear/”I can’t” got triggered when your symptoms first appeared. Now the symptoms are “attached” to that early memory. If you can heal that early memory, the symptoms won’t have anything to “attach” to, and perhaps they will resolve.

Of course, they may also be “attached” to other memories, so you look for other times when you felt fearful and like “I can’t.” When that age 4 memory seems to be resolved, you can move on to those other memories (or just add them to the prayer when they come up).

Alternatively, perhaps you can’t find any specific memories. Then look for an age range when you felt that way. Or, as I’ve said,   just use “from the source memory” and know that’s good enough.

If you’ve been subjected to trauma (of the Type B-overt abuse–or the Type A–Childhood Emotional Neglect, the Absence of nurturing), you may not have many specific memories. (Do a search on this blog for “childhood emotional neglect” or “trauma”; I have several articles on each.) Understanding my Type A trauma has enabled a whole new layer of healing for me.

Here’s a way to pray the Prayer of Intention with my hypothetical situation. (This differs from the Healing Code book; it’s how I like to pray, but you can adapt it to what you’re comfortable with.) The underlined words are the variables that will change depending on what you’re focusing on to heal.

“Dear God, please find, open and heal the source of any disease or dysfunction in spirit, soul, mind or body, especially the long COVID symptoms, with any connection to fear and the belief that “I can’t,” from the age 4 memory. Please displace all negatives by filling me with your love, life, light, power and truth. Please also magnify the effectiveness of this healing to the maximum level for my highest good at an optimal pace, and restore everything to Your original, intended design. Thank You for Your willingness and ability to do all this and more for me.”

Then you point to The Healing Code positions, while focusing on something positive (very important, as the key element to THC is replacing the negative energy of your issue with the more positive truth). On my website I have sample Truth Focus Statements and Love Pictures you can use, but it’s fine to use any positive memory or something positive you already believe, to counteract the negative.

Consistency of practice is the key here. Don’t overthink it. Just keep bringing your awareness of the feelings, beliefs, coping mechanisms and memories as they come up, and trust that God and your heart are guiding you, and The Healing Code is a tool that will shift the energy around your issue faster and easier than most anything else.

Hidden Stressors-Part Two

Posted by: | Comments (0)

In a previous post I wrote about how my symptoms were beginning to flare, and how I prayed and got some insights into why.

The first was that I wasn’t honoring my sensitive nature enough, i.e. that I have the inborn trait of Sensory Processing Sensitivity: a nervous system that’s more finely tuned than 80% of the population. That makes me a Highly Sensitive Person.

The second insight was related to the first, but with more of an emphasis on recovery: Your nervous system needs to recover from the traumas you’ve been through.

I have known for a while now that Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN) characterized my past, ever since I came across Dr. Jonice Webb’s excellent books, Running on Empty: Overcome Your Childhood Emotional Neglect and Running on Empty No More: Transform Your Relationships with Your Partner, Your Parents and Your Children. (You can take the CEN questionnaire on my Free Tools page.)

I believed that I had overcome it all by now, between The Healing Codes and some therapy.

However, when my mother died and I had to deal with settling her estate with a co-executor (sister-in-law), I saw just what my family of origin really was like. A plethora of traumas revealed themselves—though a few years ago, I wouldn’t have thought of them as traumas.

That’s the thing—what our nervous system interprets as trauma might not be what our adult minds interpret as trauma. Read More→

Hidden Stressors-Part One

Posted by: | Comments (0)

All your physical issues are from stress,” my doctor told me. They were the last words I would ever hear from her; she passed away shortly after.

But haven’t I been working on reducing stress for all these years with The Healing Codes?

The answer is yes. And they have helped tremendously. I honestly don’t think I’d even be alive now if I hadn’t been doing all I’ve done since I got my various diagnoses before The Healing Codes (osteoporosis, IBS, GERD, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, PTSD).

The Healing Codes, Halo, the c.Balance (now upgraded to the HOLOS) have all helped me not be hampered much in my daily life by these diagnosed conditions.

Now, however, the symptoms started popping up again, worsening. Why?

As always, I prayed for insight into this. Were there hidden stressors of which I wasn’t aware?

What came up surprised me.

  • You haven’t been honoring your Highly Sensitive nature enough.

  • Your nervous system needs to recover from the traumas you’ve been through.

  • You are finally ready.

Part One: The High Sensitivity Piece

I’ve known for a while that I have this trait around 20% of all species share, in which the nervous system is wired differently. Dr. Elaine Aron explains in her ground-breaking book, The Highly Sensitive Person, which put this trait on the psychological map, that HSPs are like a different breed. Great Danes and border collies are both clearly dogs, but they are quite different. So, too, HSPs and non-HSPs are human, but they are actually quite different in many ways.

(Find out more about whether you’re a Highly Sensitive Person here.)

Maybe for you, sensitivity isn’t the issue. Maybe it’s some other kind of “diversity” that is part of your nature that you’ve not been honoring.

Maybe it’s that you’re an introvert who gets energy from reflection and alone time, and you’ve always been pushed to be more outgoing. Or vice versa. Maybe it’s that you have ADD/ADHD and your brain works differently than others.

Whatever it is that may set you apart a little, so that you tend to push it away rather than honor it, could be a hidden stressor for you.

I’ve known about being Highly Sensitive, but I haven’t been living it.

I hadn’t been honoring my need to process things deeply and thoroughly, for one. The last few years have been particularly stressful for me. On top of all the stress of the pandemic (and HSPs, by the way, are more susceptible to Emotional Inflammation), there were several personal traumas: dealing with a mold issue in the home; settling my sister-in-law’s estate out of state and fending off a crook; breaking my foot; 16 months of hell settling my mother’s estate (with all the family of origin issues that brought up); and a devastating diagnosis of a close family member.

If you’re Highly Sensitive, you need to realize that such stresses affect you more deeply than other people. You take in more information than most people. You are more sensitive to subtle stimuli than most people. And then you absolutely need to process all that you are taking in!

I’ve written about my current focus on subtraction. As a HSP, I need to be aware of (and limit as much as possible) the amount of information that’s coming to me. More information = more needed processing time. When life piles up, and I don’t get that processing time, my symptoms seem to flare.

So ways I’m trying to honor my HS nature more is to limit the amount of information I take in, and then making time to process it completely.

This often means saying no to social engagements, no matter how enticing they seem. I have to stand strong when someone tells me why it would be so good to attend X. (Ever notice how many people think they know what’s right for you? Often, what’s right for “most people” isn’t right for an HSP.)

I’m also the kind of HSP who seeks a lot of mental stimulation and loves to learn. I need to resist the temptation to sign up for yet one more masterclass or telesummit. I have to revisit my own goals often and tell myself, “My commitment to (my goal) is more important than this (distraction) right now.”

Honoring my HS nervous system also means changing my environment. I’m finding that clutter really gets to me these days. I subtract as much from my environment as I can. Someone said every object in your home has a “to-do list” or a message attached to it. So true!

  • The pile of papers cries out, “Pay me, file me, check me for sales!”
  • The unused clothes in your closet castigate you: “When will you lose weight so that beautiful outfit will fit you again?”
  • The old computer monitor in the spare room? You might need it someday, if you current monitor goes out.
  • And what about the files and photos on your phone or computer? Shouldn’t those be organized so you can find them more easily?

Guilt, anxiety, feeling like you’re “not enough” or not doing enough creep in with these messages. If you’re HS, not only do you feel those things—you also feel them more intensely!

Perhaps these things don’t overwhelm you like they do me. But if they do, know that doing even a little clutter control every day will help you feel calmer and more organized.

I need the downtime to process. I need more sleep than I’m getting. I need to allow myself to feel. I need to be aware that I take in a lot of information and to do what I can to both limit it and manage it.

I need to honor my sensitive nature. Without, I might add, feeling guilty or “less than” because of these needs.

If you have seen a flare up of symptoms you thought you had healed, know you’re not alone. Many of my clients and friends are also experiencing this. Whether you’re Highly Sensitive or not, there are likely hidden stressors that are chipping away at your resilience.

Do what you can to identify those stressors, and heal what you can.

In future posts I will explore more about hidden stressors: how to identify them, what to do about them. Including hidden traumas—the second piece of the insight that was given me.

Stay tuned!

Two Quick Relationship Turnaround Tips

Posted by: | Comments (0)

If any of your relationships need a bit of reviving, here are two things I learned from one of my mentors that I’m finding super helpful.

1. Every day, think of something you like about the other person. You don’t have to say it out loud, but bonus points if you do mention it, as appropriate. Even just thinking of that positive thing can shift how you you act toward them.

"I like you" in Scrabble tiles, with hearts

2. Become aware of how you greet him or her. Do you acknowledge the person’s presence with a smile, a friendly “good morning!” or a hug or kiss (depending on the relationship, of course!).

Did you know that there are “joy centers” in our brain that literally light up (if you were being scanned) when someone is happy to see you, happy to be with you? Light up your loved one’s brain with joy, and see what a difference it makes in your relationship.

Let me know what happens! Comment below. And pass this link on to anyone it might help.

Try This (Different) Kind of “Diet”

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I‘ve written about how, when you want to change something, the focus needs to be on staying in the new energy of what you desire, through doing some small daily task to keep you in that energy.

I have set this, my sixty-sixth year, as “the year to fix and nix” and 2023 as “the year to be free of all that’s not me. 

One of the things I’m “fixing and nixing” is my thought life.

Many people at this time of year go on a diet. Or they resolve to work out, “get in shape.”

I propose a different kind of “diet,” a different way to “get in shape.”

It’s a “thought diet,” an idea inspired by Dr. Natali, Edmonds, who coaches what she calls Careblazers—people who are taking care of a loved one with dementia. (If you’re in this situation, check out her Youtube videos.)

Imagine your thoughts are like items on a giant buffet. Everything you believe, the habitual thought patterns, are spread out before you.

As you go through the buffet line, you get to choose what thoughts you want to “put on your plate” to “take in.”

I think a lot of us don’t realize that we get to choose how we feel, by choosing our thoughts.

The formula, which every child should be taught but few have parents who know this themselves, is that our thoughts determine our feelings, and our feelings determine our behaviors. Behaviors then tend to reinforce the thoughts, which get cemented into beliefs, and then the feelings are hard-wired into our bodies, until we find ourselves caught up in patterns we don’t feel we can control.

But we can. We do it by becoming aware of our thoughts, and, like going through the buffet line, we choose which thoughts we desire to think that will lead to the feelings we want to feel.

Here’s the kicker, for me at least: Just because a thought is true, doesn’t mean you have to hang onto it.

You can still look for a different thought, which can be just as true, but will lead to feeling better.

Here’s an example.

Let’s say you asked your spouse to take out the trash. It’s now 10pm the night before trash pickup day. He still hasn’t taken out the trash. In fact, he’s gone to bed already!

Thoughts: He never does what I ask him to. He just ignores me. Now I have to do it, on top of everything else I’ve done today. I’m just as tired as he is. But I always end up picking up his slack. I’ve had it.

What do these thoughts make you feel? Irritated, resentful, perhaps even unloved. Unheard, uncared for. Angry!

The incident may have triggered earlier feelings from unhealed memories of being ignored, unappreciated, not heard. (Those are the memories you would want to address with a Healing Code, so that you can more easily do the next step.)

Can you stop in that moment of fatigue and irritation, and notice your thoughts and feelings? And then ask yourself, “What would I like to feel now instead?”

Perhaps you want to feel compassion—for yourself and your spouse. Compassion is so healing, and is one of my go-to feelings. You might choose thoughts like, “I’ve had a hard day, and he has too. We’re both exhausted. When I’m tired, I forget things, too. I’ll just take out the trash and be done with it, and tell him tomorrow that I would really appreciate it if he would take out the trash earlier in the evening next week.”

Do you see how much energy you can save by choosing different thoughts and therefore creating different feelings for yourself?

The first step is to tune in and notice. Notice how you’re feeling, and what thoughts are fueling those feelings.

Then, picture yourself at that thought buffet. The current thoughts are spread out. You don’t have to put them on your plate! Think about how you want to feel, and look for the thoughts that would lead to those feelings.

Don’t beat yourself up for the negative thoughts and feelings. You are human. Those thoughts and feelings are real. But again, just because they’re real, and perhaps even true, doesn’t mean you have to keep them. You don’t have to put everything on that buffet table onto your plate. (Imagine if you tried!)

Remember always: You get to choose.

If you haven’t yet chosen your “new energy intention” yet, perhaps it can be “I get to choose.” Or simply, “Notice!” Like my “calm focus” reminder, it could help you make the changes you desire, with less friction and effort.

And if you want to learn techniques for healing and transformation that make this kind of suggestion easier to do, send me email (diane at healingcodescoaching.com). I’ll send you information on my new Align with Your Divine Design(TM) program to guide your discovery of your unique purpose, with brand-new, science-backed tools to rewire your nervous system and heal the blocks that keep you from expressing that purpose.

How to Stay in Your “New You” Energy

Posted by: | Comments (1)

I wrote recently about “new year, new energy, new you.”

I suggested you pick a word or phrase for this year, and/or your birth year. Making it rhyme is fun but not necessary.

Do you still remember your words of intention? Do they still hold the same energy for you?

If not, I’ll tell you the secret of staying in that energy.

First, realize that you don’t need the calendar to tell you when you can make a fresh start.

At any time, you can re-return to your intention.

Then, staying in that energy is actually simple.

You recommit to it every day. You remind yourself of it every day.

And—here’s the big key–you take some action, however small, in alignment with that energy.

Ideally, you do it daily.

Every action you take is like another ray of energy coming from your intention, connecting your intention with the physical world.

For example, my words for this my 66th year are “66: the year to fix (or nix).” I have gotten things fixed around the house that were on the back burner before. I have seen some health care providers to improve some health issues that I’ve been neglecting. And I “nix” by every day getting rid of something I no longer want or need—even if it’s only an old tube of toothpaste!

(My husband is rather a pack rat, and will even take something out of the trash and say, “Did you really mean to throw this away?” At first it was kind of annoying. Then I realized that saying, “Yes, if I throw it away, I mean not to keep it” actually drew me deeper into my intention to “nix.” So I cheerfully reaffirm that commitment when he asks. I also bought some black trash bags so he can’t see what’s in them! Small, daily actions!)

My intention includes letting go or changing thoughts and beliefs too, by the way. For instance, when a doctor gave me a dire warning, I “nixed” that thought. I changed it to, “She is coming from the typical ‘western medicine approach,’ which totally disregards energy or less invasive approaches to a problem.” I prayed, followed my “next clear step,” and have some very viable alternatives to try before the radical option she suggested. I refuse to entertain any thoughts that are not in line with faith and my deepest knowing.

This calendar year, 2023, is my “year to be free.” That ties in very nicely with the other intention. I am working to be free of the stuff, thoughts, commitments that no longer serve me.

So today, I encourage you to start doing some action, however small, to keep you in your intended energy. Do something daily.

It also helps a whole lot to be accountable, or at least to be witnessed. That’s why I encouraged you to share your words of intention with me or someone else. (Leave a comment to be witnessed.) You might even share some of your intended actions, and ask the person to check in with you on those.

Or, you could simply be accountable to yourself, by setting a reminder in your phone to pop up when you still have time to take action. For instance, I could set a reminder for 8 p.m.: “What have you fixed or nixed today?”

Or you could do both! Be accountable to yourself and to someone else.

Make it fun. Make it daily. Make it stick.

And if you need help, contact Diane to see if one of her programs will be a good fit.
