re-Energizing Tip - First thing in the morning ...

First things first. Before your first cup of coffee or juice in the morning, slip in a big 8 oz glass of water. Why? Dehydration is a major “hidden fatigue” cause.” Caffeine dehydrates and the sugar in juice amps. Your best bet for balanced energy begins with H2O.

Super Women Push - Real Women Pray

When the Super Woman bug bites, my knee jerk reaction is to try harder, push harder, run faster, do more, try this, manipulate that ... Used to think it was because I was so smart that I had so many ways to overcome!

Now I recognize that kind of urgency and all those options as fear powered by monkey mind.

Instead of doing more I take that heart pounding as a sign I need to pray more. And, today is shaping up to be one of those days ...

Here are a couple of my favorite prayers:

Relax, let go, Let God.

Tasbim Sunset/Sunrise Chant shared by Dana Ludeking

May the Love and the Light and the Healing Energies Please Come to me.
May the Love and the Light and the Healing Energies Please Come surround me.
May the Love and the Light and the Healing Energies Please Flow Through Me.
May the Love and the Light and the Healing Energies Heal all those around me.

Super Women - Speed vs. Spirit

When I am in Super Woman mode I depend on speed and illusions. I imagine because I am on the lam, without a quiet moment to connect with spirit, that I am actually accomplishing something great.

Denial is not a river in Egypt as my bro likes to tell me. Items checked off of long "To Do" lists do not make a super life - they make a super exhausting life. Been there - done that.

When I am in Real Woman mode, I rely on spirit and act on intuitive hunches & the revelations that come to me in the seconds I hang between sleep & awakening. When I am in Real Woman mode I accomplish MORE in LESS time and it is "what matters most" vs. "whatever."

Cell Phone Karma: Real Women recovery secrets begin

Super Women are always on the go-go-go and always plugged into widgets. They think they're in control but really they are constantly on the beck & call of others. The more widgets -the more calls and less peace, confidence and grace.

Real Women Recovery Secret #1
If it beeps, burps, vibrates, rings, sings or interrupts ... turn it off. Only turn it on when 1) it is safe to communicate and 2) necessary to communicate and 3) get clear about what "necessary" means.

Real Women can sit through meals, birthdays, weddings and funerals with IT turned OFF. On the other hand a Super Woman friend of mine spent my entire wedding reception sending & receiving messages on her Blackberry! Come on!

Don't turn them on when you are with friends, shopping in grocery stores, waiting in lines in public places or else you might have your own close encounter with ... Cell Phone Karma.

Super Women Sag - Do we?

Why Super Women Sag.

O.k., I'll speak for myself. I used to (and sometimes still) sag because one more thing on top of one more thing on top of one more thing used to smooch the life out of me.

I remember one time my father said "Darlin' no matter what I do to help you it doesn't make any difference. You just add on more ..." Dad is a man of few words who never complains. I took that to heart but couldn't figure out what to do differently. Over doing was all I knew how to do. The only way I could stop myself was by getting really, really sick.

Tomorrow, let's put our capes away and share some down to earth Real Woman Recovery Secrets. Thanks for visiting and feel free to post any secrets of your own ...

Super Woman - who are we?

Super Women Suck at enjoying life.

Remember science class where we had to make assumptions then prove them right, or wrong?

Here’s my case.

#1. 80% of American Women will suffer from adrenal fatigue. And what causes Adrenal Fatigue? Stress, shocks to our systems and sucking it up to prove we’re tough. (I even had a doctor tell me to “tough it out.” The Doc was, of course, a … she.)

Super Women marry, manage households, work full-time jobs, have kids, add kid’s stuff like affection, attention and commuting … We cook, clean, and garden … We do all the Martha Stewart stuff without the staff.

Sometimes we sensibly cut back to part-time hours, a measly 40 some hours per week vs. the 50 plus. Wuu Huu! Now that's a relief.

We have sex FAST, sleep less and push our husbands to do more so that we can add more onto our Super Women “To Do” Lists.

Results? Our kids our tired, our husbands are tired and we are sick & tired - guilt ridden and cranky - especially with our super families.

Now what part of that sounds enjoyable?

Your super dooper comments are welcome. Tomorrow, Day 2, Why Super Women Sag.

Body Talk - Relax, let go, let God.

I am arisen from my bed like the pheonix from its ashes. Ten days of flu! Puts everything into perspective - there are worse things than feeling tired ...

One thing I read during my aches, pains, sweats and fevers was a book called The Dynamic Laws of Healing. One of its suggestions was to talk to my body. I was supposed to tell my body what I wanted it to do and, according to the author, it would obey.

So I did. I started telling it to Relax, let go, let God.

Guess what? It works! Now when I go to bed at night I tell my body to Relax, let go ... and I sleep like a baby. I use it during the day when I am working or cooking or driving and feel anxieties or frustrations on the rise.

Results. I feel more relaxed, am breathing better, have more focus, humor and energy!

Your turn. Start talking to your body and see what miracles you can co-create.

Fatigue is a Gift. Don't dull it ... uncover it?

"Drugs never cure disease. They merely hush the voice of nature's protest, and pull down the danger signals she erects along the pathway of transgression. Any poison taken into the system has to be reckoned with later on even though it palliates present symptoms. Pain may disappear, but the patient is left in a worse condition, though unconscious of it at the time."
~ Daniel. H. Kress, M.D.

Suggestion from me: One way I uncover vs. cover up is to journal. 3 pages a day to be precise. Click here for "how to" get started & activate your healer within ...
