Daily Holistic Renewal

Presenting at the California Marriage and Family Therapy Annual Conference in Sacramento, CA
For four days May 16-19 I facilitate T’ai Chi Chih and Energizing Excercises
plus a gathering for discussion and sharing with other therapists during a lunch time Connection and Integration.

Where do you get your energy?
How do you rest and renew?
What makes you so healthy and Happy?
How can we bounce back or overcome challenges?

Energy comes from within.
With proper rest, food and water and movement, there ia natural flow of chi or energy from within.
When we are tired, we need to move, sleep, breathe or feed ourselves.
When we are tired, we may also need to release negativity, judgment and fear with forgiveness.
When we are self aware, all of this becomes clear, as it does when children learn to love themselves.

Consider these simple keys. 
Treat your whole self well.
Take care of your mind, your body and your Spirit. 
Know yourself and love yourself WELL.

Our needs are for safety and security, socializing and belonging, Achievement and Actualization.
When we love ourselves, we assure all of these areas for ourselves and others.
Life is learning to provide and protect, nurture and nourish with exactly what we need.
Take good care of you and you will better care for others.

Loving you, 
Betty Lue

Ten Keys to Health & Vitality 

Ingest the best and forget the rest.  Take into your body, mind and spirit only that which supports, sustains and inspires the BEST in you.

Life is flow. To move with the flow is healthy. To resist is stressful. Move with the natural inner movement physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, etc.

To breathe in (inhale) fully life energy, Spirit, Prana, inspiration, is to expand our awareness to open to an enlightened mind.  To exhale fully is to truly release what is no longer needed.

Reaching out with Love and respect for each other opens our bodies and beings to trust in the gentleness we all deserve to experience.

Choose for those thoughts which heal and free you to be unlimited in health and wholeness. Forgive (erase) the beliefs which are limiting or false.

Carry with you an attitude of gratitude and love for yourself and others.  Allow yourself to see all things work together for good.

Moderation in all things will bring your life into harmony.  As we give ourselves what is really best for us, the extremes are gently released.

What you perceive in others and the world you strengthen in your Self.  Focus on illness, disease and weakness and you actually weaken yourself.  See only health and wholeness and you move yourself in the direction you are looking.

To clear out toxins and purify the system requires a willingness to eliminate toxic thoughts, activities, relationships as well as foods from your system.  Flushing the system clean is aided with water, fresh air, gentle movement and forgiveness.

To rest and relax your mind and body are invaluable to being refreshed and revitalized. Each person has unique methods of relaxation - meditation, music, being in nature, focused simple activity.
