Be The Observer of Conflict, Not The Reactor

Posted on: May 27th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

To become the observer means to be fully present to what is happening around you, make clear choices without mindlessly reacting.  Only as the observer can you have a broad perspective. We are used to being fully and deeply immersed in our lives, which can tend to obscure the broad perspective, which is essential when we want a productive positive result in a situation. This is particularly true when we find ourselves in conflict, whether it’s internal, or conflict with someone else.

What is a reactor and why not be one? A reactor is someone who jumps into a situation or comes to a conclusion either verbally or physically without thinking things through. It is generally impulsive and without thought, and can occur very quickly. A reactor’s actions and words can be haphazard and often out of control.  Reactor behavior can . . .

It’s Important To Start Your Day On A High Note

It’s Important To Start Your Day On A High Note

Posted on: May 20th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Why is it so important to start your day on a high note, meaning feeling good? Have you ever noticed the mood you wake up with can determine the mood of your whole day? If you’ve gotten in the habit of waking up in a state that feels less than wonderful, it’s time to change it up now. Each of us wants to feel good and have experiences that enhance our lives, not to mention our day, today!

Since we create our realities (yes we do) it’s important that we begin each day with the mood we want to carry through our day. This mood sets the tone and it starts the momentum going.  Momentum is created with energy, so the more thought (which is energy) you put into feeling a certain way will power up the momentum. This momentum can . . .

Do You Feel Other’s Pain?

Posted on: May 13th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Do you ever feel sensitive to other people’s physical or emotional pain to the point of beginning to take on the exact symptoms at the mere mention of hearing about them? Maybe you don’t even know the people in question, but are listening to the news or hearing their story second hand. Being identified as an Empath is a term I have heard used to describe this kind of sensitivity found in many people. Can you relate to this or know someone close to you who is?

While some people with this kind of sensitivity and openness view this as a way of being they love and welcome, others find it uncomfortable and unwanted. There is no right or wrong way of being in relation to your level of openness but there are ways to enhance it if you love it . . .

Why Having FUN Is So Important

Posted on: May 6th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

I find myself writing about fun often, mostly because I love to have fun and because I hear from so many people that they don’t feel like they can make fun a priority.  Why not? Fun can often be viewed as the reward we give ourselves after we get our work done, and our responsibilities taken care of.  After those are accomplished, there may be no time left for fun. Sound familiar?

I spend a great deal of time trying to discourage this perspective and attitude, as there are so many benefits to be found in your fun! Well-being is the greatest benefit you will find in the fun activities and moments you create and your well-being is the most important aspect of a happy and healthy life. In other words, well-being needs to be a priority and fun is an . . .

Facing Fears Around Graduation Time and Growing Up

Posted on: May 5th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Spring is a beautiful season, but it can be a filled with anxiety and anticipation for your kids. This can be especially true for kids who are gearing up to make important life decisions.

They may be choosing where they want to go to college or maybe they’re about to graduate, which as exciting as that is, it also means there are new and unknown challenges that follow.

Or maybe your kids have finished their studies and are looking at beginning a new stage of life — being adults and getting “real” jobs.

The pressure kids are under to perform well is enormous. Like it or not, standardized testing plays a large role in where they’re able to go for advanced education; if they even can afford to or want to in the first place.

While it’s tough enough in the United States, it . . .

Do You Want To Manifest Your Ideal Love Partner?

Posted on: April 29th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Are you struggling to manifest someone to share your life with, and are you attracting the person that feels right for you? Sometimes we aren’t sure the best way to go about finding someone to share our lives who is compatible with us. You may sign up for all the dating sites, join community groups or have your friends introduce you to everyone they know, but if you aren’t sending out the right signals you won’t be able to attract your dream partner.

The right signal is the one that matches exactly what you want to find in another person, the ideal traits you are looking for. What you send out in your thoughts, which are your energy vibration, is what you will attract back. This is basic Law of Attraction.  What is it you think about? Do your thoughts revolve . . .

Leap And The Net Will Appear

Posted on: April 22nd, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Recently my husband came upon a greeting card with a Zen saying in large bold letters, which seemed to profoundly inspire him. “Leap And The Net Will Appear.”  Perhaps you’ve heard this as well? I think it evokes a great mental image and potentially a really good feeling. I believe it to simply mean that if we take a leap of faith in our lives, things will work out just fine. I believe this to be true, but aren’t we held back sometimes by the fear this can evoke as well? What if the net doesn’t appear?

What is a leap of faith? It is taking a chance, a risk, an action step toward something completely unknown without a determined outcome. For example, the new relationship that feels good but scary at the same time. The chance to be vulnerable to . . .

Are You Getting What You Want?

Posted on: April 15th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

You can always tell when a person is accustomed to getting what they want.  They have a certain air about them, a certain attitude if you will. I like to call this air and attitude plain old-fashioned happiness.  When we get what we want we’re happy as the emotions we experience feel great, and when we don’t, the emotional toll can feel awful.

Don’t we all want to get what we want, at least most of the time? That’s why we’re here isn’t it, to create our wildest dreams and experience what we desire? I think so.

What are some of the ways in which we want things?  Well, that’s a big question as there are so many aspects to our lives. It may mean you want your ideal love relationship, a job you love, the respect of your children and the . . .

Do You Hear Your Loved Ones Cues?

Posted on: April 8th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

In our busy and hectic lives we can often forget how to hear what others are saying to us. It’s not just about listening to them; it’s about hearing at a deeper level than their words convey and how what they’re saying may relate to us. These are our cues.

Once we realize how our loved ones complaints may relate to ourselves, we have the opportunity to improve the quality of our relationship, as so often what others want from us is expressed indirectly.

What is it that your spouse or significant other complains about that affects them deeply? Are their complaints dismissed as non-important, and are they even heard?

An example of how I came to learn this was when my husband shared a story with me on numerous occasions that took a while to see how it related to me. In . . .

Do You Believe What You’re Told About Yourself?

Posted on: April 1st, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Since the day you’re born, judgments both positive and negative come streaming at you, competing for your attention and belief system. It starts with your parents and family members, then the teachers at school, as well as your friends and acquaintances. Later on it’s co-workers, business partners, significant others and so forth.

Whatever you are told repeatedly can become ingrained and when it becomes ingrained it becomes what you believe. What do you believe about yourself that was expressed by others and accepted by you? Nothing can become a belief that is not first accepted, whether it is accepted consciously or unconsciously.

For example: As a child we may be told over and over how smart we are. By the time we’re grown-up we will most likely believe that we are smart! It is easy for children to develop beliefs about what . . .
