The Health e-Newsletter

published by Diamond Integration Healing Arts

Welcome and thanks for being here!  I am Brad Gilbert, Master of Medical Qigong. My wife Lori Gilbert, Licensed Acupuncturist, is the editor and a contributor to our newsletter. 

This month's topic:  Follow through with it

Wow! Some of you have made changes in your lives that have been surprising. (See our March E-Newsletter about Following your life path) You may now be experimenting with a new way of organizing your business, or hobbies that have the potential to work better than they have before. Just remember that whatever you do that is new, successful or not, it puts you in a new direction and opens you to new possibilities. I remember when we, Lori and I, were taking advanced training in EFT, with the founder of EFT Gary Craig, that he showed us a movie about a boy from a little hick town that wanted desperately to play football for a famous college and he had no idea how he would get there. The odds were against him all the way, but he had the faith to pursue his dreams. Now I gotta tell you I am no football fan, but this was a great story about what can happen when you follow your dreams! Life is a journey not a destination.

Take yourself seriously, but not to seriously. DO what you can to follow through with your new ways. Maybe the new ways are just a new outlook on what you have been doing all along. After a while having the same job can get old, but when you see how you have been contributing to something bigger than yourself you can see what you are doing in a whole different light; or a new direction all together.

Fear. The most powerful force in the universe -- until you have tamed it. Like a wild Bengal Tiger you cannot shove it under your bed at night and hope it does not wake you up! (Hope I am not creating any nightmares for you :<0
It takes time, patience and the right tools to break through your fear that stops you cold in your tracks, and you don't make the next move. Oh! You were so close, what happened? It is time to make the move but you don't want to just push through the Bengal Tiger, remember this is a Big Animal, if you push though it now it may bite you in the %$##$@*! when you are not looking! Emotional Freedom Techniques, EFT, is the best technique I know to heal this fear, and stop it from coming back.

Questions and Answers

"How do I know I have found the best thing for me this time? I get so frustrated trying new ways."

A: Life is an experience. Sometimes what is stopping you from your highest potential is you have not tried to think out of the box enough. Maybe even something so far out that "people would think I am crazy." You have special gifts. Sometimes our Divine Source challenges the hell out of us because we have not let ourselves be totally who we are. When we block ourselves from sharing all of our gifts we may not find that missing piece that could bring it all together.

Q: "I have many abilities / things I am good at, but I feel like I am a  .......and a master of none."

A: Let me reveal something to you. I took singing lessons for 10 years. As the years rolled by I wondered why I took these lessons for so long. What was the benefit? Years later I was taking Qigong (Chi Kung) classes -- a form of Chinese exercise that combines the use of specific postures, regulated breathing, and metal focus -- and it dawned on me. I was able to do the deep abdominal breathing, also called diaphragm breathing, very well from the beginning, and many of the exercises included making specific sounds, or tone resonations. I was able to do the sounds very well too. Why? Because of my singing lessons! Thank you Diane Fuller -- my singing teacher.
The point is ... you may be using many of your talents simultaneously without knowing it.

Q: "I am comfortable where I am, mostly. Why would I want to rock the boat."

A: I know of way to many people who are now in there 60's and 70's who "stuck with it" and they wanted the security that the job gave them. They look back now, knowing that they did not like there job of 25 years, maybe even hated it, and for some reason they feel cheated, humm. Don't get me wrong, I know that security is important, but feeling that did your life's work makes life worth living. So you have to compromise.

There is nothing wrong with sticking it out with your government job with the pensions, good health benefits, etc. Just as long as you can look back 10 - 20 years from now without regret, or you have some other outlets for your creativity.

Secret of the month:

Instructions: tap on the side of your hand, the fleshy part just below the base of your small finger. Keep tapping as you say the following.
"In my Heart I know what I need to do, I have the skills the talent, and the knowledge to get me where I need to go. I love and accept the choices I have made and I know I continue to do the right thing for myself and my family."

Fantasies are more than substitutes for unpleasant reality; they are
also dress rehearsals, plans. All acts performed in the world begin
n the imagination.

Barbara Grizzuti Harrison, American author and publicist

Let me share this secret with you:

The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.
