When I was in grade school waiting for the bus to come and take me to school, I remember complaining to my Mom that I wished it was already Friday. She said, “Wait until you’re 21; they all fly by.” As a typical kid, I rolled my eyes at what my seemingly ancient Mom (then in her early 30’s) had to say. Guess what? I now have the wisdom to know she was right.
Days do fly by whether we like it or not. So why not make the most of our days and like them and our experiences a little bit more every day? What if changing our focus, attitude and outlook made the biggest difference? Because it usually does.
What if you could change your mind and realize that your current conditions are temporary? What if you stopped projecting negativity onto your future? What if you stopped watching and listening to the news? What if being an optimist and focusing on and moving toward the wellness and goals you desire becomes easier the more you do it? How do athletes excel at what they do? Practice, practice, practice – and a coach and a team and fans…
Here’s an example. One respondent to my survey said she liked my video but found the information overwhelming. My guess would be that she didn’t download the free eBook that gives step-by-step instructions. But let’s say she did download it, but just had too much going on in her life and found it difficult to not revert back to old habits. That’s easy to do.
When you want to make a change in your life, what must you do? Create a plan and consistently stick to it until you reach your goal. Also, you must make adjustments as necessary to the plan to accommodate what’s going on in your life.
The same is true for healing symptoms currently attributed to ADHD. The video presented the big picture of how the meme of ADHD came to be. It took years and systems to create that meme. It won’t change overnight nor is it any one person’s responsibility to change it. It’s just information. We’re all in this together. What you do with that information is up to you.
My suggestion is to start with one thing. Begin with the issue that is causing the most upset for you, your child and your family. Focus on healing that issue until it is gone or manageable as naturally as possible. Then as your intuition guides you, tackle another issue, and so on. If it involves other family members, make each change a family decision that everyone can buy into. When everyone knows WHY something is a good idea despite what “others” are doing, they just might see the value in changing it which then inspires them to stick with it.
Everyone, including children, have beliefs that rule their behavior. If you can get to the belief that drives the problem behavior and get them to reframe it, that’s called coaching and it can work miracles with new results. Take a look at my previous post for examples.
If you need assistance, get support. You never have to go it alone. Life will move forward whether you’re on board as a pessimist or an optimist. Why not make your experiences as joyful as you can. Change is the only constant so expect miracles because everything is temporary and God is everywhere.

If you and your family already have the life you desire, congratulations. If not, perhaps these real-life examples will provide insights that may help you. Often times seeing how others have worked through their issues not only helps you feel that you’re not alone, but can also provide a morphing-off point to spark your own gifts.

Gratitude is the strongest positive emotion you can feel. Has your gratitude practice, if you have one, filled the void of what’s missing in your life yet?
If not, then you may have a block to receiving what you want. What are you not receiving in your life?
I’ve struggled with emotional eating all my life. We all can turn to addictions to fill a void or deal with stress whether it’s Facebook, television, eating, video games or whatever. There are a plethora of escape vehicles on this planet.
As a life coach and spiritual teacher, I’m able to access beyond the surface to the body, mind and spirit levels. When I finally decided to get to the bottom of why I haven’t received what I want in my life yet, some interesting questions came to me. If you haven’t received what you want yet, ask yourself the following questions:
1. What is missing in my life that I really want to have in my life? (You may have been projecting the lack of it on others, the economy, stereotypes, etc.)
2. What am I not receiving?
3. What do I need to change, heal, do (or do differently) to receive it in my life?
If you are anything like me, you’ll get surface answers at first. I want a better income; the relationship; more harmony in existing relationships, etc. Then I asked what those things represent to me and what I get from my substitute for them (usually food).
For me the answer was love. I’m not receiving love. It isn’t that people haven’t offered it, it’s that I haven’t been receiving it.
When I understood that what was missing from my life represented me not receiving love, I sat with it for a little while. Why would I not receive love? Why would I block (unconsciously of course) the receiving of love?
While I don’t believe in blaming parents and holding onto the story of our upbringing because that just keeps us stuck in it, we do need to feel the feelings we have bottled up in order to let the story go. I believe we choose our parents and families for the lessons we each need to teach and learn. We are all students and teachers – at every age. We all do the best we can with who we are at each particular moment in time.
All of that said, I will share a bit of my story to illustrate what was stopping me from receiving love in the hopes it will help you and your children.
For me, it turns out that not receiving love was a learned pattern from my family of origin who got it from their parents…and so on. I don’t recall my parents being very affectionate, and I’m a sensitive kinesthetic person who loves a good hug. So while some kids may not want to receive hugs from parents (especially at certain ages), apparently I needed it. I was given food and gifts to show affection.
I also have no recollection of my parents saying they loved me (but they showed it a lot). They only started saying that to me when I was in my 30’s living thousands of miles away. I remember being angry when they first said it as they paused for me to say it in return after never having had this exchange all my life. It took me a little while to reciprocate.
Having learned how to bottle up my words and feelings and shove them all down with food instead, I also learned how not to receive love – except from food and shopping, and… you get the picture. You see this is how my family of origin shared love. To understand this issue better in yourself or your child, take the free 5 Love Languages Test.
So I ask you, what is the bottom line of that which you are not receiving? Is it love? Is it forgiveness? Worth? Value?
Once you recognize “it,” you can change it. You have the power. No one can think for you. No one can move through your feelings for you, and no one can take the actions you must take.
It is God’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. The only block is your inability to receive. Heal the blocks to receiving because your Soul is waiting to deliver your best dreams and move forward with your life in joy and enthusiasm.
Depending on your issues or those of your children if you share this practice with them (and I hope you do), you may need additional assistance from a therapist or someone like me who is trained in the energy healing arts. You will know your own best path to wholeness.
If you share these questions with your children, please let them come up with their own answers. If you need assistance, be sure to seek help.
Thank you for taking steps to receive what you really want in your life. We are all One. So when you lift up yourself, you lift up the whole.

Enjoy infinite blessings,
I’m sure you’ve heard the question: What came first, the chicken or the egg?
Have you ever had an intuitive hit and then “it” happened? Well what came first? The intuitive hit or the event letting you know it was on its way to you?
No matter the size of your goals and purpose such as the father who created work programs for disabled young adults or me and others spreading the word that certain health “conditions” only exist because of a toxic food supply and environment…
