What makes your heart sing?


Do you know your heart's desire?

If you already know what type of things you desire, take time to write them down. (Yep, right now!) If you have everything you desire, what does the world look like to you? What does your employment feel like? How do you enjoy your time? What can your body do/feel? THINK BIG, like beyond your wildest dreams. Your true Hearts Desire can be found using Numerology. It is also known as the Soul’s Urge or Motivation number, it describes your soul's purpose for being here.

Would you like to know how Numerology defines your Heart's Desire? First let me explain why  I am  asking.  As you may already know, my belief is that the more often we say "yes" to who we are and the present moment the more joy/magic/peace we will create.  I also believe that NOW, at this monumental time in history, with the power of the planets and the Age of Aquarius, knowing our heart's desire is very important.  

I believe very much in the law of attraction. You know ‘birds of a feather’ and such. If you want to create more love, peace and harmony, or even more thoughtful people, it needs to expand off you… which in turn attracts more to it. This is a potent time for such attraction as the eclipses energy will be with us for a least a month. Taking a few moments to cast your heart’s desire. Update: We will also have 6 planets go into retrograde from July to December. Which means we will have additional support releasing all that does not serve us to make room AND to do some deep healing if we need it.

To find your Heart’s Desire, add all the vowels in your full name. Refer to the conversion chart to get a number for each letter in your name. It is fun to see the different energy that is created when you do your birth name and a name change. For instance, my HD went from an 8 energy to an 11 energy with Gunberg as my last name. I didn’t know this at the time, but I am glad I made the name change because an 11 is, “Visionary who wants to be surrounded by like people” really is my Heart’s Desire.

Here is the conversion chart:

After adding up all the vowels in your name look below for a brief description based on that number. For more information on your HD, my book “Say Yes to Who You Are to Create Fitness” has the word list for each number 1-9, starting on page 8 (Amazon eBook for only $3.99, click here). You can also book a reading with me. and get insight to all 23 numbers in your chart.


1 wants to be a leader and is ambitious

2 craves love and understanding, prefers to follow and partnerships

Heart's Desire Numerology by Tricia Gunberg

3 loves an audience, many friends and to be surrounded by beauty

4 needs structure, order and rules, wants to work to help others

5 must have variety, personal freedom, and new opportunities

6 desires to create harmony and family, to right all wrongs

7 wants to dream and meditate, upset by noise, menial work, physical discomfort and confusion

8 big business, getting things done

9 requires knowledge, wants to teach, counsel and serve humanity

Doing what we love is so very important. Especially if we are feeling overwhelmed, frustrated or anxious. Love is like Jello, there is always room! May you be blessed with more of your Heart's Desire.

Now for a channeled message regarding your hearts desire:
 "It is true, now more than ever, is a potent time. Do you feel it is not acceptable to ask for your true hearts desire? Do you feel disappointed when you ask and do not receive? We have seen you struggle with this aspect. We see you asking, we see you searching, but we do not see you feeling. Feeling is the key. You must first get to the feeling. Does this require you to put yourself in a situation where you feel joy then replay it in your mind? Then that is what you must do. Will music take you to that place? Will a hot bath or a favorite meal? What activities do you enjoy? You MUST enjoy them then -it is here, in joy, that you will remember. It is here you will be able to repeat it and more will come to you." 

Love and Light,


June and the Energy of the number six: love, perfection and luxury


Numerology of June, The Energy Garden

Numerology of June, The Energy Garden

What can the number 6 teach us this June?

 June, the 6th month reminds us about love.

The number 6 is about unconditional love specifically. If you are a 6 Life Path, unconditional love is your Super Power.

Think about that.

Unconditional love.

What does it mean to you?

Think about the statement, “There is nothing you can do to make me stop loving you.”

How would that feel if someone said that to you? Doesn't the word unconditional feel like there are no conditions in which the love will stop coming.

I like that idea.

It feels very uplifting to me, very freeing, very much like I can’t make a mistake.

 Another aspect of the number 6 is PERFECTION, which feels like the opposite of unconditional love.  All the digit of my first name add to a 6. (See charts below to see if you have a 6 somewhere.) On a good day, this means I am oozing with love for everyone and everything. On a ‘not so good’ day, my idea of perfection makes me so nuts I get on my own nerves and there is no love for anybody. It will stop me from posting a blog page or sharing something I created, or expressing my feelings. Often, I need to tell myself, “It’s good enough.” or “Everything is as it needs to be.” My husband has a saying, “It’s good enough for the girls I go with.” I like this because, who wants to be around someone that thinks nothing is good enough?

Numerology of the number 6, The Energy Garden

Numerology of the number 6, The Energy Garden

Do you have an expectation of love or define some aspects of it as perfect? I often wonder about my drive to be perfect and think part of my motivation could be an erroneous belief.  I believe I need to be perfect in order to receive love. If I fail, or don’t get it right, I will disappoint people and they will not like me or love me.

Can you suspend your idea of love for a few moments? First, consider how others show you they love you. For example, moms and grandmas are notorious for showing their love with food. When you say ‘no thank-you’ to their offerings in order to honor yourself (you’re not hungry or you’d prefer to eat something else) this may come across as rejecting their love. PDA’s are another example. Some people are really offended when they see/receive affection in public. For other’s, nothing says “I love you” like getting fondled in front of strangers.

Does is mean that grandmas and 'perverts' show their love wrong?

It’s not for me, or you to decide, unless you are on the giving or receiving side of either of those scenarios and it's not working for you…….    

Secondly, do you show yourself love?  Separate your mind from your body or look at yourself as an observer.  What does love feel like to you? How do you like to experience love? How do you show yourself love? I ask this important question because of how often I am shown this in others while doing readings. People claim they love themselves, “Well of course I love myself”, as if I am asking them a silly question. When I suggest they spend time alone each day or take up a creative outlet they say, “I don’t have time for that.” In the same breath they will also sigh and say, “I wish.” I see this over and over.  As if self-sacrifice is going to get them to heaven and the drudgery they call life needs to be tolerated and not enjoyed.

Another thing about the number 6 is, it carries the energy of luxury. Do you put off doing something for yourself because you think it is a luxury? Either time or money can feel like a limiting factor. What is luxury to you? A massage? Pedicure? Golf?  A good book? A nap? Time alone?     

How much luxury do you allow? Do you seek it out? Do you provide it for yourself? And, if you’re not providing it for yourself in some way, how can you expect others or the Universe to know what you want and how you want it?

You can further investigate by doing a Body/Mind check:

According to Louise Hay and numerous intuitive readings I have done, the feet represent the understanding of ourselves, of life and others. The ankles represent inflexibility and guilt as well as the ability to receive pleasure. If you have issues with either of these body parts consider the message your body is sending you. 

Another body/mind connection from her book, Heal Your Body, relates heartburn to fear. Since all emotions are either love or fear, it seems obvious to me that heartburn is the heart actually burning for more love.

I often find my body/mind connections on the mat. As synchronicity would have it, I stopped half way through this post to go to yoga. The message at yoga: “Enjoy the process, do not be hung up on the goal.” I chuckled at this as I know this is a sticking point for me with my work (note my 6 energy of my name is about how I behave at work). The message wasn’t completely clear for me, I soon discovered.  Half way through class I was experiencing some knee pain. The teacher sensed something was wrong and asked me what was going on. I thought for a few minutes. “I think I am trying too hard.” I was completely aware in an instant that my mind was on getting my legs in the ‘correct’ position….being perfect!...I was not enjoying the yummy stretch nor appreciating my own improvements. I backed off on the next attempts and the pain disappeared.   

Love, unconditional or not is so much of our human existence. Are you getting enough of the kind you want? Are you allowing luxurious moments and enjoying the process of things? If not, no worries, you can make the change.

Here are some ideas from my book. This is health and wellness advice for Life Path 2 but, good for anyone with a 2 and all around good advice for everyone.

Connecting to your Intuitive Abilities by Tricia Gunberg

These exercises can support you in so many ways! If you want to heal yourself, start here to connect with yourself.

What you will need for this Grounding and Clearing Workshop that can be used to connect with your intutitive abilities as well as your creative abilitities. 

standing meditation.jpg
  • 15 minutes – 2.5 hours, spend as much or as little time as you would like
  • Chair
  • Desk or table Place to stand, preferably outside
  • Notebook and pen- track your experience after each prompt to “be quiet here and feel
  • 3-6 index cards

These methods helped me write my book. I continue to use them for myself as well as share them with clients and my meditation class.

I start the workshop by scanning each participant with my hands, making note of areas that get my attention.  It is a good idea to take a few minutes before doing these exercises and make notes of anything you notice in your body. If you are working on your intuitive abilities, this is especially important to use this ‘muscle.’

A bit about me before we get started:

If someone would have told me in 2010, that I’d be an author, I’d would have nodded. If they would have told me I’d be making a living doing energy work, I would have fallen off my bar stool laughing. As with all things, it has been a process and continues to be. I am a very intuitive person. I do energy work because I was drawn to it and then I realized it appealed to me and it was, in fact, part of my life purpose.  Another reason I do energy work, including writing, is because I am sympathetic to human plights such as addiction, depression, unhealthy weight and general ill health. It is important to me to create methods to support myself and my clients.

I understand my journey to get HERE started sometime before my birth but specifically my energy work started in 2009. Health issues lead me to kinesiology. The Kinesiologist to a numerologist. Numerology lead me to be open to my intuitive abilities, which lead to Reiki and, more specifically, to my intuitive healing abilities. I kept my writing hidden for many years. It tried to push and shove itself into my life, until I cleared the fear. That is what this manual is about.

This could also be titled “Speed dating for the Soul”

Call these methods anything you would like; grounding, clearing, knocking down blocks, but what we really are doing is making a connections with our deeper selves. We are creating both space and opportunity to know our true selves. It’s in that space we find our creativity and all the yummy bits, that hopefully, we want to share with others.   

#1 you can’t do this wrong  
#2 there are millions of methods, I’m just showing you a few so you can work with them in whatever manner feels right to you
#3 I welcome you to share your thoughts and questions while we go through this process. Everyone will get more out of it if you do.  If you are reading this without my direct instruction please go to Facebook or send me an email at theenergygarden@outlook.com if you have  questions.

Grounding~do this while standing up~

             Science behind it-This is the science in a nut shell- we could take an entire hour to discuss this one alone. Our bodies are made up of electrons, your heart and brain use electric impulses. Free radicals gum up the works. You can limit free radicals but not entirely. Grounding or Earthing is another term, adds electrons to your body through the bottom of your feet thus displacing some free radicals.   Antioxidants do the same thing.

Demonstration and Participation – Please stand up. Spread out. Yogies in ‘tadasana’, (video) stand in a comfortable position, close your eyes, you can visualize roots coming from your feet into the earth or put your minds eye into your feet to feel energy. 

Relax and Feel

Best place for grounding: Ocean Water, then Beach, then Earth: Dewy grass. After that any porous material with water: cement but not blacktop, tile better than wood

(1-3 minutes)
Breath- another good way to clear space is with your breath. Breathe into your heart, bending over clears your head.

            Demonstration and Participation- diaphragmatic; that is using your entire diaphragm to breath.  (AKA: BoB’s Bottom of the Belly Breaths- weekly reminders at my Facebook page). At first, too many of these might make you feel faint, just do as many as feels comfortable and then pick a breathing pattern that feels the best to you. 

            In Breath/Out Breath- lets practice the in/out. That is to say, think about your in breath to make you tall, light and long as you breath in and increase your connectedness to the earth(feet to the ground, your bottom to a chair) as you breath out.

            Colors- white is clearing, green healing, purple intuitive, red/pink passion. Visualize the color coming in with the breath, as it circulates it grabs up what you don’t need and on your out breath releases it.

4 Count- (Ha- means four) count to four on both the in breath and the out breath

Be Quiet here and FEEL-

 Ho oponopono- Hawaiian, ancient way everything is energy and Ho oponopono is a way to make things right. “Hawaii” translated means land of people who breathe so it seems very appropriate!  This is why Hawaiians call white men ‘ha o le’, lazy breath  

        Method: 7 counts, inhale, hold 7 counts, exhale 7 counts hold 7 counts this is one round do 9 rounds. Stand up please- begin your hooponopono breath –(reference Dr. Len)

(3-5 minutes)
Visualization ~sitting down~

            Demonstration & Participation-  Eyes closed, visualize a cleaning tool of your choice. A white rose, a QTip, a vacuum, feather duster, swirl it around your body parts, starting at the head, moving down to your neck and face, to your R arm then your left, past your torso, hips, R thigh, R knee, R foot, L thigh, R knee, R foot. Discard your cleaning tool with a blessing. The energy you just removed does not serve you but could sever someone or something else.  

Quantum Clearing-Quantum seems to be the buz word these days and thrown around in science and in conversations/literature about metaphysics and the like.

 I really like Cynthia Sue Larson’s https://tricia-gunberg-6aqb.squarespace.com/config/pages/52f291f3e4b03da5553e211btake on it in her book ‘Quantum Jump’. I have tried some of these body postures and seen some of them in action in the past. Her over-all theme is “fake it til you make it” and she has the science to back it up. Let us practice some of the body postures.

Sitting up straight- creates confidence

A “power pose”- behaving like an extrovert-

             Hands on your hips

             Leaning over with palms on a desk

             Sit with feet up on desk and hands clasped behind the head

Pick a posture and BE STILL HERE AND FEEL



You can rewire your brain with affirmations, it helps to push negative thoughts out. “Thoughts are things.” Science has proven this too. Placebo effect and scientist’s own thoughts which effect test results. 

Creating our own affirmations-

  • For writers and creatives:  "I am a creative writer." "I write with ease and grace." "I am creative." "I am engaging."
  • Based on your numerology: My book gives you easy to follow instructions on how to create your own affirmations specific to you!  


Music and sound can have a profound effect on your mood. Need to set a mood to write a sultry character or scene? Pick sultry music. Need to pump yourself up for an important meeting? Pick rock music, think ‘Eye of the Tiger’.  

Sound of ‘OM’. I am not much into the idea of chanting but have noticed something happening in me when I following along in yoga class doing the classic ‘om’. Primal breath, which by the way is three letters A U M, represents the three stares of consciousness: awake, dreaming, sleepless dreaming. Reference:  pg 158, ‘The Lucid Dreamer’ by Malcolm Godwin.)

These 3 I saved for last, I have them in my mind as a “HOE” not just an acronym so I can remember them but also because these are methods that dig down deep. They contain the potential to release emotion, memories and really bust through tough blocks.

  • Handwriting- “Change Your Handwriting to Change Your Life” by Polly Cady, Certified hand writing annalist. She has studied handwriting of serial killers and those with personality foibles. Her book looks at the positive attributes and as the title states, to make positive changes. Changes I have made:
                         Lower case: g,j,y    they are your money bags so make the bottom loop big

                     Crossing your t’s- cross through the middle means suffering. I decided I was no longer here to suffer and have changed all my t’s to upper case with an affirmation: “I am not here to suffer”. Deciding this was not very positive, I soon changed it to “I am here to enjoy life” and “I live with ease and grace.” Then to “with ease and grace’. Now I don’t say it every time but when I catch myself making a lower case T, I erase it and say “Control/Alt/Delete, ease and grace, ease and grace.” 

Use 3x5 cards and decorate them!

Use 3x5 cards and decorate them!

  • Organizing Oracle- I use these when I want to create a schedule for myself and don’t know where to start.(Update: used them for myself then added it to my book “Say Yes to Who You Are to Create Fitness.)  It will feel like a ‘boss’ is telling you what to do – but it is really yourself and Law of Attraction. My oracle cards (N.O.W. update: getting them designed) started out generic:

go for a walk
research an agent
free choice reading time
watch TV
TAXES (Yuck!)
 Free Choice
Watch tv

 Funny how I never, no matter how many times the “watch TV” was added, I never picked the watch TV card. (attention moms:  I used this method as a homeschool teacher. The kids would have several favorite activities written on a card for  free time choices. They would pick a card to see which one they would do. This helped a lot: less fighting, more variety, less time wasted deciding.)

 I used my initiative abilities to pick the cards now. If you are unable to do it this way, do not worry, trust that whatever card you pic is the right one. Use index cards to write a “to do” list. Estimate how much time you have and how many cards/activities you can actually do or pick the cards randomly. (more instructions in my book: Chapter 3 section How to Work With Your Oracle Cards)

*Note: This is a practice in letting go, trust and using your/improving your intuition, aka: intuitive abilities

 Essential oils-  Use with a carrier oil on your hands with a light massage. Your hands do a lot of work, appreciate all they do for you.

Frankincense penetrates your brain- why they can’t fix Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s because of the barrier that essential oils can penetrate–read from page 7 in Modern Essentials book, fifth edition

I end the workshop with a Q&A and scan the participants to see if they have cleared the energy spots that I detected before the workshop began.  Those practicing to use their intuition are encouraged to scan themselves.

If time is allowed, I like to share this poem to end the workshop:

Mirror, Mirror
While searching for meaning in all that is, in dreams, illness and challenges, these words came to me.
The people that I meet are but an image of me.
 Am I so full of anger, resentment and worry?
The events that occur are but a reproduction.
Am I so full of hatred, sadness and fear?
The dreams that I have are an echo.
 Am I so full of insecurity, regret, and loneliness?
The illnesses I endure are but a resonance.
Am I so full of withholding, controlling and lacking?
A case of mistaken identity, I hoped and I supposed.
But the messages keep repeating.
Why is it that I do not see these reflections of me?
For this case of mistaken identity, what do I need?
 Until I can find the correct focus, this is all I have,
I do love you.
I am truly sorry.
I do beg and plead for forgiveness, for all of this and so much more.
My affection for you runs deep and true.
I thank you for your love and your patience.

Help me create a Wellness Revolution!

Love and Light,



Interviews to Awaken the Mind

A blast from the past for #Throwback Thursday. I am rerunning these interviews as I feel you could benefit from other peoples experiences. Realizing now, I did these interviews to prove to myself I was not a wack-a-do, makes me chuckle. Then again, I still have a hard time telling people I am emphatic and can tune into someone who's not even in the room! The journey continues.

Interviews with Intuitives

To provide guidance to those who are becoming familiar with their intuitive abilities this platform offers a look into how others have come to know and work with their abilities. The universal energy (available to everyone) that is referred to here as “Intuitive”, comes in many forms. We will describe and discuss them here.

      Wendy Servi- Intuitive Healer

      Wendy Servi- Intuitive Healer

This month I chose a “newbie”. I have known Wendy for most of my life so I can see that her 29/11 numerology describes her well. Wendy’s 11 energy of “double creativity and confidence” comes through with her sense of humor, spot on comedic timing, her problem solving abilities and leadership skills (1 energy!). When I did Wendy's Life Purpose reading and discovered her healing abilities, the reading was a confirmation not a revelation. At the time, it was not something she was ready to share with others.  I am honored that she shared this personal information with me. I am ecstatic that she wants to share it with us!  

Wendy thanks for taking time to chat with us. I know you are busy planning your wedding. Congratulations, by the way.  

Tricia: Could you start by describing how you understand your intuitive gifts?
Wendy: My first experience was about 7 years ago but I didn’t know what it was at the time. This past year I have had a physical sensation in my body, like the hairs standing up on my neck, or I get stopping abruptly in mid breath. Negative feelings are the strongest and sometimes I don't know what "it" is. In one such instance I knew the person talking to me was not telling me the truth. It made me want to leave the room...the feeling was so intense I could not get out of there fast enough. Recently I found myself "knowing" before the person came into my office that their spouse had recently passed away.

I don't exactly know how to articulate my healing ability. People have come to me with pains or I've noticed something about them that they had not realized. Using my hands I can find the issues in their body. Sometimes I apply pressure and sometimes it is a light touch. One time I could feel a lot of heat coming from my hands.

I’ve recently noticed people coming to me with their personal stuff and it annoyed me at first. I have been told that I "missed my true calling and should've been a counselor or psychologist". I laughed at that suggestion because it came after I had mentioned my weakness in healing the spirit. When you acknowledge your weakness, or ask for help, you just might be presented with opportunities and not realize it.

Another ability I have yet to figure out is a ringing in my ear.

Tricia: I love what you said “When you acknowledge your weakness, or ask for help, you just might be presented with opportunities and not realize it.” Thanks for reminding us that we are not alone in this. Because people have already come to you for help, do you feel this is a request from Spirit to use your intuitive abilities to help others? You did say you were annoyed about it at first but how do you feel about it now?
Wendy: I honestly can’t say that I feel it is a request to help others, I almost feel like it's an answer to what has been the most important aspect to me as I have gone through my careers. I am unsure how to feel about it, there are too many emotions to pin point. I have to remind myself that if there are things that keep repeating, like people complaining or all their spouses dying, that I am missing the message, or I am not listening correctly. I laughed at myself, I am unsure how to feel about it, huh, dork....I feel unsure.

Tricia: Since your understanding of your abilities is new, only in the last year, will you seek more knowledge?
Wendy: Yes. I had started searching other websites at the beginning of your website development and have read the other interviews you have. And of course my number one knowledge provider right now is you! Thank you by the way!

Tricia: What would be your advice to those who are experiencing intuitive and healing abilities for the first time?  
Wendy: My advice would be work on letting go of the fear. The fear you are wrong, the fear you will be judged or rejected, the fear that you might be seen as crazy.... It takes time and work, but all of those things will happen no matter what you do or don't do, so fear is pointless. 

Tricia: That is great advice Wendy. All my love and light to you on this journey. Mahalo!

Do you have abilities you have not shared? Want to come out of the closet? Need more proof that there are more of us other there? Here are a two other interviews I did:

The ABC's of Your 123's ~F is for FitScopes~

The ABC’s of your 123’s
F is for *FitScopes
Using numerology to add fitness

Say YES to Who You Are to Create Fintess.JPG

Cheers to the post that started my book! This little ditty “FitScopes” was the first time I combined Numerology with Fitness and it eventually became “Say YES to Who You Are to Create Fitness.”

First a little on numerology. 

When you know your tendencies and attributes, this gives you the edge needed to accomplish your goals. Numerology provides this knowledge. Numerology translates the meaning, or energy, of numbers. The numbers are calculated from your date of birth, your birth name, and your married name and give insight to things like: heart’s desire, life purpose, tendencies, positive attributes and challenges.

You know some of these number meanings already. The one, for instance, is about leadership and being first. The two, as in ‘it takes two to tango’, is about balance and partnerships. You also know: yin and yang, the perfect symbol of the number two’s energy. The 8 is the infinity sign standing up which means manifesting and abundance.

I discovered this beautiful information back in 2009, with a numerology book by Dan Millman. Uncovering who I was, at the soul level, I noticed everything in my life began to improve. The numbers in my chart allowed me to see my resistance and the excuses I made. I could see in other people’s charts, they too had everything they needed to accomplish what they wanted, but resisted it in some way.

Let’s explain a little further. If you have a one in your numerology you carry the energy of leadership. If you refuse chances to practice your leadership skills, you might be suffering in a dead-end job. A person with an eight in their chart needs to trust their innate generosity in all aspects of life or they will be resentful. Seeing these challenges during several years of reading charts made me wonder if many of us struggle with fitness and wellness because we resist the approach that fits us best.

 I have taken the concept of numerology and applied it to health and wellness to help you find the fitness that fits you best. The 3-4 digit number derived from your birthday is usually called Life Path Number but referred to as the Health and Wellness Path Number in my approach. I am sharing a short version of it here. Find the full version of my approach in my book, “Say Yes to Who You Are to Create Fitness.”

For brevity, we will focus only on the single digit (1-9) that is obtained by adding all the digits of your birthday down to a single digit. This number is a tiny glimpse into your numerology chart. Keep in mind that your date of birth alone, has over 20 numbers, so this is just a peek into the information available. It is also only one aspect, that is the health and wellness as it pertains to fitness.

 We are not talking Cross Fit, tri-athlete or six pack abs type of fitness. We are talking about incorporating a fitness program that is right for YOU. Just as adding leadership skills to your resume will help you find a job, adding the right fitness can happen with ease and grace. By doing a simple calculation, then scrolling down the page, you can obtain some helpful information that will get you on your way to increased fitness.  

 To calculate your Health and Wellness Path number (aka Life Path Number): add all digits of your birthday until you get a single digit.

Example: August 4 1969 is a 1 Health and Wellness Path -    
8 + 4 + 1 + 9 + 6 + 9= 37
3 + 7=10
but we add again to get a single digit:    1+0 = 1

1 Health and Wellness Path- (Creativity and Confidence)
Because of your creative nature you need more than the average amount of exercise each day. Since you spend much time alone and much time in your head, choose an activity that is simple and easy to follow. Try walking, hiking, swimming, or restorative yoga. Try mixing in activities you enjoyed as a child like riding a bike, roller-skating, jumping rope, cartwheels, or hula-hoop. The more playful and silly the better! Find some kids to show you how.

2 Health and Wellness Path- (Cooperation and Balance)
You need exercise that releases muscular tension. Try uplifting movement that has music, dancing, or deep breathing. Include those that require balance: yoga, Pilates, step aerobics, Nia dance and sex (ooh, this is tension releasing and deep breathing!) would fit the bill.  Include independent activities for yourself and above all choose what YOU like. Add beauty by choosing colors and surroundings that appeal to you. Include stretching and meditation every day. 

3 Health and Wellness Path- (Creative Expression)
Expressive movement suits you best. Zumba, Pound, and interpretive dance are good examples. Find inspiring energetic music or write your own. Choose music that mirrors your current mood and move with it. Consider teaching, leading or creating a fitness class. Your creativity and enthusiasm alone make you qualified for such an endeavor. Ideas: MeetUp.com, Baby and Me fitness club, neighborhood park; share the price of a babysitter with others while you work out.

4 Health and Wellness Path- (Stability and Process)
Step by step and goal-oriented fitness programs work best for you. Sign up for a half marathon then train for it. Make it a goal to be a black belt within two years, etc. Weight training, running, biking are all good “building” programs. Does competition motivate you? Try a team sport like tennis or racquetball. Trunk Trainers, here in Kona, is a good place to go if you need help starting a fitness program.

5 Health and Wellness Path-(Freedom and Discipline)
You will get the freedom you need when you create a disciplined approach to your fitness program. Freedom from health worries. Freedom to sleep well. Freedom in your diet choices, etc. Variety is very important. Something simple as walking can be changed up by going at a different time of day, different location, adding music, books on tape or comedy station that is free on Pandora. Do not do the same work out two days in a row. Being regimented doesn’t mean being boring. Fast moving aerobics classes like Zumba and Pound are great for you and you don’t have to be super fit (go at your own pace) or know how to dance to enjoy these classes!

6 Health and Wellness Path- (Vision and Acceptance) Pick any physical activity you think you are not very good at and do it anyway. Guess what, it will be perfect because it is good for you. Notice how you feel while you exercise. Picture running like Phoebe in that Friends episode. An anything goes kind of attitude. Try Tai Chi or something similar so you can slow down and enjoy the process. Like to golf? Do not take a cart, do not keep score, and while you are walking between holes notice your surroundings.

7 Health and Wellness Path- (Trust and Openness)
Try to do as many outdoor activities as possible. Mix in something you enjoy that requires attention/concentration, counting or that builds upon proceeding classes. Ideas: dance classes like Zumba and Pound, yoga ropes class, gymnastics (Yes, some centers have gymnastics for adults!), kickboxing, or martial arts.

8 Health and Wellness Path- (Abundance and Power)
Tapping into your inner abundance and power is the key to your fitness routine. Be a workout buddy, inspire and encourage others to exercise. Sharing in this area will certainly motivate yourself and others to meet fitness goals. Can you share your abundance with others by offering a free class or volunteering to teach?  Martial arts, weight lifting, kickboxing, and tennis are good choices for you.

9 Health and Wellness Path- (Integrity and Wisdom)
Gee, you are good at so many things. What to choose, what to choose? You lead others without trying. Imagine what you can do if you made a conscious attempt at it? Look deep into your heart, honor your conviction to better health and get something started today. You’re a humanitarian so Habitat for Humanity and Big Brothers Big Sisters are good ideas for you.

May you find the level of health and fitness that brings you the most joy.  Of course; talk to your doctor before starting any new fitness program. Consult professional trainers when necessary.

Love and Light,

#1 Explore self-actualization tools and workshops.
Don’t limit these. Keep trying new ones even when you find ones you like. Some of my favorite: Numerology, Astrology, Intuitive Readings/Coaching, Reiki, Yoga.  My fav authors: Sarah Ban Breathnach, Caroline Myss, Sonia Croquette, Eckhart Tolle, and  Juilia Cameron. For entrepreneurs: workshops with Stephanie. Also: my book or a personalized SoulJournal . Please comment if you have found a process you enjoy.

#2 Spend time with yourself in Quiet and in Happiness.
Meditation is great but experience other ways too: golf by yourself, going fishing, or walking (no phone!). Make room and create awareness to increase the amount of time you are happy. Eliminate things that make you sad, angry or frustrated. (News, Social Media, People, Places, Activities)

#3 Observe your emotions.
Pay special attention to those that make you uncomfortable or you prefer not to have.  Honor them, make changes ( emotions are like gears in a car post)

#4 New Experiences!
Do something today that makes you nervous. It is important that you stretch yourself and shed light on yourself and get you out of your comfort zone.

I will be working on this for myself, doing my visualization exercise that Stephanie suggested and being more open to my wantings. The journey continues as we continue to learn how to Say YES to who you are to create MAGIK! I loved to hear from you, either here, via IM or on my Facebook page.

Love and Light,

*Magik- a technique for bringing desired changes into physical manifestation. A process of crafting and shaping one’s life. Not to be confused with magic which involves cleaver illusions.
