Do you feel like your going to explode? Election Anxiety, job, kids? Your not alone, tips to help you NOW!!

Election Anxiety, feel out of balance, do you need to calm down, sleep better?

IMG_8274Do you ever feel like your going to explode? One of the biggest problem facing people  and families today is stress and the feeling that they are never going to catch up, always running to the next event, always a email or text to answer or a fire to put out, or worried world events such as the election. In order to manage many high level people are seeking alternative ways to manage the unbalance in their lives, they want to reduce stress, feel happier without taking medication, without seeing a "shrink". The feeling of being on call all the time and under constant attack does impacts your health and effectiveness in doing your job. Business  are helping employees  taking action implementing new methods in the workplace helping lower sick days and increasing wellness and productivity. Time tested methods from around the world are being used in homes and the  work place.  People are seeing and seeing the  great results. More and more families and businesses are looking for help. People want to feel better and don't want to take medication, they don't want to have to drink alcohol to relax. People want to feel good about themselves and work in a positive space. Its hard in the over stimulated world we live in to find peace, that is why I teach people to find it in their bodies. I see clients in NYC and at Nicholas Day Spa and Salon | Pelham NY 914 • 738 • 3838nicholasdayspa.com/

 I have developed a method that can help restore and align the physical and emotional balance through Chakras. I have over 20 years of experience with Reiki and energy healing, Chakras and card reading and helping people move to a higher level. When your in balance you’re stronger and more resilient to stress and better at your job. The better you feel, the better equipped you’will be to manage work, people and stress without becoming overwhelmed, the more successful you will feel and it will reflect in your performance. When you feel happier and at peace the energy is picked up by people you work with. When the energy is good in a office productivity goes up. When productivity is up, people make more money, feel more in control of their lives and everyone benefits. Chakras are energy centers, or portals in the human energy field. Located along the central channel of the body from the base of the spine to the top of the head, they are conceived of as whirling, wheel-like vortices through which universal/cosmic energy flows into and out of a person. Some of my clients even have salt lamps on their desk to absorb negative energy. I often distribute crystals that are kept in the office or carried in a brief case. "what the hell I keep one in my bra". Can't hurt will only help says one of my multi million dollar real estate clients.

Do you have election anxiety? I think we all do, we are getting more information then we can process. I feel for Mr. Trump, ​I gave Donald Trump a quartz crystal for good energy when I saw him in NYC at Trump Tower. He has good energy so much energy coming at him, its proof that he can survive and when elected will be one of our greatest presidents.

Many people on are feeling sad and depressed and overwhelmed because the energy flow is off, even looking down at a computer and phone results in slumped over with your neck and shoulders curved forward and head looking down. Its just not a natural position and manifests in blocked energy flow. Resulting in headaches, eye strain and loss of creativity and being open to new ideas. Many people are stuck, stuck because the energy is not flowing in their bodies, stuck because they need to get out of the mind and in the body. I help shift the energy, its as simple as that.IMG_8276

The relationship between our mind and body runs both ways, meaning our mind influences the way our body reacts, but the form of our body also triggers our mind.

Taking care of yourself doesn't’ require a total lifestyle overhaul, it can start small and then organically it will naturally become bigger. When you feel good you look good and when you look good you feel good.  Even small things can lift your mood, increase your energy, and make you feel like you’re back in the driver’s seat. Take things one step at a time, and as you make more positive lifestyle choices, you’you will soon notice a reduction in your stress levels, both at home and at work.  For example salt lamps are even kept on your desk at work too,Himalayan Salt Lamp: Glass Bowl Lamp with Salt Crystals Himalayan Salt Lamp: Glass Bowl Lamp with Salt Crystals. As Himalayan salt lamp warms up with the light bulb it emits negative ions into the air. This process may help relieve symptoms of Asthma, Sinusitis and common allergies, not to mention helps absorb co-workers negative energy.images-22 While energy can neither be created, nor destroyed, this unique process balances the energy within, resulting in a more definitive, more elevated and more centered sense of being. I like to use a mixture of methods to help ease the anxiety and bring out the best.

- Guided Meditation
- Intention Visualization
-  Hands on Reiki Re-balancing
- Chakra Clearing and alignment
- Crystal Energies in conjunction with
and the Figure "8" Detoxifies with aroma therapy increases your personal vibration and frequency. chakra energy
 
Each component of the practice, works together for the purpose of igniting the light within and restoring the balance, to enable ones full potentials. These methods improves your ability to manage stress and lead through the change and challenge that have become inevitable in the lives of leaders, families, kids, CEO, business leaders. People want to improved effectiveness as a leaders and reduce stress, parents want to be in the moment and enjoy their children. People also want to find alternative ways to connect and relax with co workers and their families. Cocktails after work are fine, but night after night as a way to relax is not healthy or productive.  Sometimes people just loose track because they are stressed and not staying in the moment. The high level of stress may be your new normal. That is what I see when dealing with business leaders of today. Some CEO's are so stressed they are not even taking time out to take care of the normal functions. Sleeping, eating right, sex, and family time, ( not necessarily in that order).
Meditation combined with Reiki, Chakra alignment, are sharpening  my clients focus  to help them preform the most important tasks and priorities, in both their professional and personal lives. 
These methods can actually do more in less time then other methods by having treatments and practicing the method daily.crystal-cove-med-2
Relaxing is critical for clear and creative thinking, strong relationships and good health. Energy you spend away from work can enhance your productivity and your capacity to deal with things at work. Just imagine when your energy is flowing and you feel good, relaxed positive what u can accomplish. Positive thinking, good energy affects the people u work with as well as personal life. When I say time away from work I mean a mini mental break during the day can help you reduce your stress. One of the challenges I encounter is that people are so busy planning the next move they are missing the moment resulting in a feeling of emptiness, never completing a task. 
With this method, companies are finding workers happier and less sick days. Kids that practice also have higher grades and less sick days too.  Its a wonderful feeling to be in balance and having everything aligned and feeling that the possibilities are endless of good energy and positive thoughts.
In NYC the energy of the city breeds creativity and new opportunities and when all of this is aligned the sky is the limit.

Parenting cell phones, tips and reminders!

Unknown-2images-16images-8Parents and cell phones! I hate to pass judgment, but here are some tips and reminders why we need to be mindful. Everyone is clearly overusing cell phones its not only kids that are over using parents are too. Remember kids model adult behavior, this is how they grow to be functioning adults. It makes me crazy when I see a child and adult dining and the parent is ignoring the child talking to a friends or texting. Children need interaction with parents they need to feel acknowledged and secure, which helps them in their social skills and future self-esteem it begins when a baby smiles, the parent smiles back and laughs, so does mom and dad this is called “mirroring.”

Parents over use of cell phones around kids, can cause emotional and physical dangers,  When a parent is ignoring there child and always on the phone I call it the“emotional freeze out”, the poor kids have to compete with a phone, this causes a lot of anxiety for kids and they are start seeking attention any way they can get it. Kids also misbehave when they know there parents are distracted.

I don’t want to shame parents but here are guidelines that we can all use, even when we are working and taking kids on a outing at the zoo.

1.   Do not use the phone at meal time, engage with your  family  Have a phone basket during dinner every ones phone goes in the basket until meal time is over

2.   When at events WATCH your children, be engaged in the event, put your phone on vibrate and tell your other family member friends what you are doing so they wont be calling or texting you at that time

3.   If you are mobile working, hold your Childs hand or have help watching them if you are returning messages

4.   If you have a call to answer keep it brief, and don’t get into long conversations 

5.   Speak softly, respect surroundings

6.   Remember you don’t have to be in constant contact

7.Send out a auto response that “I'm unavailable , if its a emergency call this number 

8.Dont be looking at your phone crossing street, driving, and at the movies with the bright light

 9. Show children by example, if I hear one more  stupid, waste of time conversation while standing on line, as the kids run around I'm going to say "excuse me, but…"  

10. I also think that parents need to help each other out, if you have a important call to make during a outing I know most moms would have no problem keeping a eye on your child for a few minutes.

11. If you need to check your phone, acknowledge the people you are with and say excuse me, I have to check my phone.

 
Respect people, respect the surroundings, respect your children and most conversations and texting are just a distraction from dealing with real life.
ENGAGE and stay in the moment.http://www.marketwatch.com/story/parents-heres-the-no-1-reason-you-should-get-off-your-cellphones-2016-06-06

#2016 #Valentines Day #Recipe for falling in #LOVE ! xoxo

#2016 #Valentines Day #Recipe for #LOVE, that works!
 
 
IMG_7992As a Reiki Master, I know this to be true, but people always want scientific proof. I challenge you to try it. Doing, with the right intention is the most powerful aphrodisiac in life not only Valentines Day.
 "Cooking with Love and Getting Results" is perfect for Valentines. I'm not sure if you ever heard of "THE Rice Experiment" or "What the Bleep do we know" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What_the_Bleep_Do_We_Know!%3F its very powerful and true. This experiment shows when food, water are treated with the right intention they flourish, when treated bad they die.  Most people agree that positive thinking has power, this would be a fun, informative and can only help.IMG_7991
 
 "COOKING WITH LOVE and Getting RESULTS"
 
"Cooking with LOVE and getting Results" highlights the intention and integrity of good energy!
- Send love and good energy into the food while cooking, even play happy music.
-positive intentions make the food taste better, it translates in taste and feelings as you prepare, eat, digest.
-Engagement Chicken, perfect example, its a delicious lemon chicken. Has all the right stuff, lemon for detoxification,andprotein.http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Engagement-Chicken-364889
-healthy ingredients raise ones personal vibration to feel better
-love has such a powerful energy that it does effect the way people taste and digest food.
example KOBE beef, the animals are treated very humanly and the meat is better.IMG_7993

 

This is a example of intention when cooking.Engagement Chicken, every person should know, the recipe that started it all. And once you've made it, you'll know why. It serves up the kind of home-cooked goodness that no restaurant meal can top. The chicken's crispy skin is drenched in herb-infused juices (don't forget to pour the pan dripping back over the chicken before serving or, alternately, to drizzle them over individual pieces on the plate), and the trick of turning the chicken 15 minutes into cooking keeps the meet uniquely moist. 

All sides will work with a main course this splendid. You can go with either white wine (in which case a Riesling would be nice) or red (try pinot noir). Positive & Happy cooking-and an even happier future to you and the lucky person you've deemed worthy of this dish.IMG_7990Cooking with love, good ingredients and happy thoughts always makes everything taste better. As a mother who loves to cook, I think we all know nothing tastes better then a home cooked meal.

#IVIVVA and #Luluemon, us girls LOVE! Great #style and #healthylifestyle #mamarazzi

#IVIVVA and #Luluemon, us girls LOVE! Great #style and #healthylifestyle #mamarazziIMG_5833

My favorite “The Moms” with our daughters at the Mamarazzi® event celebrate  a pop up store in Union Square, NYC. It was a great evening, fashion, music, health wellness with lots of smiles all embracing the culture of at the ivivva (ih-vee-vah) which is  actually a word made up. Ivivva believes that both the logo and the name represent the strength and beautiful individuality in all girls.

We watched a great fashion show, mingled, ate healthy and all oowed and awed at the fantastic models who did flips and cartwheels down the runway. One of our favorite models was 4 year old Gia also featured  School Yard Style.  Ivivva connects girls through movement and encourage them to dream big.

ivivva sparks and connects a global community of brave, compassionate and adventurous girls – to get involved, support each other and impact the world around them in their own unique way.

I personally love LuLuemon, and have been wearing for years, and they still look great. We also shopped the latestest fashions and were treated very very well!

13 MANNERS to review with our kids!

 13 MANNERS to review with our kids! A refresher never hurts anyone! Parents  we need reminders too.

images-8

1. Say "please" and "thank you." The two benchmarks of good manners, but sadly lacking today, despite the fact that teaching kids to say them is a simple process of reminding them.

2. Make eye contact. Personal interaction requires some level of engagement, and unless there are special circumstances, eye contact is the bare minimum.images-9

3. Chew with their mouths closed. Nobody likes the site of chewed up food, and open mouths increase the chance of things falling out.

4. Don't interrupt. Unless it's an emergency (it usually isn't), kids need to learn patience and allow an interaction to continue.

5. Don't text at the table. Seemingly a no-brainer, I am constantly astounded by how much kids (and adults) check their phones during meals. I'm guilty, but trying not to do it!

6. Don't text during conversations. Nothing relays the message that you've got better things to do than checking your phone during a conversation.

7. Honor Privacy You don't have to read someone's diary to invade her privacy. In a world of reality TV and 24/7 social media, it's challenging to maintain a sense of privacy. 

  • Knock on the door before entering a room.

  • Do not eavesdrop on others' conversations.

  • Don't spread gossip and rumors.

  • Don't share and forward the personal information (or photos) of others.

  • Do put an end to forwards that land in your lap. It stops here.

8. Learn to say "excuse me." Always appropriate when interrupting a situation or when releasing "gas."

9. Have integrity  "Honesty and integrity are at the very foundation of one's character," says Sena. Our children must learn how powerful their words are, and how using them wisely is at the core of good manners.

  • Tell the truth. "It's not always easier to tell the truth, but it's always better in the long run," says Nickell. "Our children should know that lying won't get them anywhere, and that honesty really is the best policy."

  • Stick to your word. "Teach the importance of following through and living by your word," says Nickell. "It's an essential part of life, and it's a lesson children can begin to learn at a young age." If you say you're going to do something, stick to it.

10.Respect your elders "Speak to adults respectfully and look them in the eye when they are speaking to you," says Liz Taylor, an etiquette consultant in Minneapolis. Refer to them as Mr. or Mrs. unless they tell you otherwise. (If you don't know their names, refer to them as sir or ma'am.) Politely offer them your seat or let them go before you (through a door, in a buffet line, or anywhere).

11. Lose gracefully. If you do your best, then it doesn't matter whether you win or lose. We can't win every game, so when you lose, be sure to thank your opponent, shake hands and say, "Well done!" or "Good job." No sore losers, please.Unknown-8

  • Maintain a positive attitude. Sports and games should emphasize building each other up, taking turns, playing as a team, working hard and striving to improve. By focusing on these positives, there will be fewer bad manners when there is a loss.

12. Acknowledge friends and acquaintances. A simple nod or smile is all it takes, versus ignoring them completely.

13. Eat your food,with mouth closed, just another reminder!

Do children get to much homework? I say YES!!

http://www.fox5ny.com/news/11538656-story

The standard, endorsed by the National Education Association and the National Parent-Teacher Association, is the so-called "10-minute rule" — 10 minutes per grade level per night. That translates into 10 minutes of homework in the first grade, 20 minutes in the second grade, all the way up to 120 minutes for senior year of high school. The NEA and the National PTA do not endorse homework for kindergarten.

Kids are getting  to much homework, I feel because the teachers don't get a chance to cover all the  required material in class. Homework should be a review of what the children cover in class.

To much homework effects family life, causes stress anxiety and test prove that even with more homework, test scores don't go up.

Here are my tips:

1. Draw up a plan, on what homework to do first, know when projects are due and subjects that require more attention for your child.

2.Overcome Procrastination, do the homework after school, have a snack and just get it done, while the brain is still in "school mode"

3.Create a homework space, have all materials, pens pencils, computer workbooks everything needed for homework in the same spot. A desk, a table and quiet area.

4.  Create a Support System with study groups, tutors if needed, after school help programs. Parents your not alone!

5. School Website, most schools have homework and assignments listed which is always a good idea to check to make sure you are in the loop of assignments.

6. Speak to teacher in a Non-confrontational way make sure your on the same page, with assignments and requirements for class.

7. Family dinners are so important, even if you feel the schedules are "crazy" make time to sit down together and discuss the rose and thorn of the day. This always helps children deal with conflicts and problems and a space to brag too:)

#MoMA PS1 #Volkswagen reach a worldwide audience including my #family!

Volkswagen, Partner of Culture and Arts MoMA PS1

Its so true the arts transcend people and places. The MoMA had to be one of the most glamorous and exciting places in NYC to be! I went with my daughter, to support the arts.  As a mother and On Air Parenting Expert, arts and my work  go hand and hand in our household, inspiration comes in so many forms and it pops out brings happiness to all areas of our life.The arts have so many benefits for adults and children, from reducing stress, to aid in real life problem solving, art education strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. The experience of making decisions and choices in the course of creating art carries over into other parts of our life. Art is a way of making things better! I love creating and the creatives of the world, as you can see me on the far left in pink having a great conversation about the beautiful event. The food, guests, the atmosphere were amazing.

For the next two years, the Volkswagen Group of America will be the lead sponsor of educational programming for the Museum of Modern Art, New York (MoMA), and will back major exhibitions including MoMA PS1’s survey of local artists, Greater New York, opening this autumn at the Queens museum.

G30C2084

 

 

Since 2011, the North American arm of the German carmaker Volkswagen has supported a number of special events and shows at both museums. Now, the collaboration will expand to cover further educational projects, particularly focusing on the museums’ digital learning initiatives, such as online courses and multimedia guides. The sponsorship deal will also include a series of talks to take place at MoMA and internationally, a curatorial training fellowship at MoMA PS1, and the extension of the Queens museum’s popular Sunday Sessions series of installations and performances, which took place in a distinctive temporary dome in its courtyard. MOMAPS1-20150625-7557


My friend is in the blue hat to the right!! "hi"


Volkswagen will also continue to sponsor exhibitions, including the survey show Greater New York 2015 (11 October-March 2016), which takes place every five years. Instead of focusing on emerging artists, however, this iteration will include more established artists and take a historic view of the city’s art scene. The curatorial team, led by MoMA PS1’s curator and associate director of exhibitions and programmes, Peter Eleey, includes the art historian Douglas Crimp, who organised the influential exhibition on the Pictures Generation of artists in the late 1970s; Thomas Lax, MoMA’s associate curator of media and performance art; and Mia Locks, the assistant curator at MoMA PS1.MOMAPS1-20150625-7463MOMAPS1-20150625-7497“Volkswagen is das auto, and MoMA is das museum,” says the chairman of the board of directors for Volkswagen Group of America, Martin Winterkorn, in a press release. “The renewal of our partnership is a reflection of our commitment to an internationally recognised art institution, and it demonstrates Volkswagen’s engagement in the fields of arts, education and social matters.”
