How are you navigating the ever-changing landscape?
Challenges staying present? Feelings of loneliness, frustration, worry?
Or are you loving the slower pace, the time to reflect, the quiet.
Perhaps all of the above, bouncing you around?
Yup – wherever you are at, its OK.

Wishes Come True!

If I had to choose a very favourite weekend of the whole year this weekend would be it! It’s better than any of the long weekends in my mind. And it’s not because it’s Halloween weekend. And it’s not because I have any special event planned.

It’s my favourite weekend because it is the answer to a wish I wish often, and maybe you’ve had this same wish, “I wish I had more time”.

Many places are turning back the clocks this weekend, returning to Standard Time from Daylight Savings Time. (If you are in the Southern Hemisphere, check out the ps at the bottom for my suggestion for my second favorite weekend of the year! If there is no Daylight Savings time where you live, check out the pps)

Turning back the clocks from Daylight Time to Standard Time means this weekend has a whole extra hour! My wish has been granted! I have more time! YES! THAT’S why this is my favourite weekend!

Now that I have this extra hour, what will I do with it?

I might use it to catch up on my sleep.

I could use it to phone a dear friend and have a long conversation over a cup of tea.

I can choose to clean out a closet, or catch up on my email, or treat myself to an extra hour of writing time. I could sit in my favourite chair and read a book, go play with the grandkids, create an interesting meal in the kitchen, take myself for an extra long walk. I could give the bathroom a super deep cleaning, switch out my summer for winter wardrobe, or sit and stare out the window.

It’s my choice.

And, how you use YOUR extra hour is your choice.

I could carry on like it’s any other day and only notice that just gets darker an hour earlier on Sunday, but that would be a waste of this gift. I don’t want to take it for granted  that’s not like me. I do want to acknowledge this gift of an extra hour – THAT’S like ME!

forgive myself for believing I would ever waste the gift of an extra hour.

I give myself permission to support myself with this extra hour. That’s what I want!

I can ignore the extra hour or I can consciously support myself with it – I choose to have this gift of an hour support me  that makes sense!

I am free to support myself with this extra hour by turning back the clock, and then writing for a whole hour (insert your own best idea that will really support YOU!)

know what it’s like to support myself with an hour of time – I did this last week when I gifted myself an hour to relax and read my book. (insert your own memory of supporting yourself with an hour to do what you really wanted!)

am supporting myself with this extra hour this weekend and that feels motivating and freeing! (insert how it feels for you)

I am grateful for my favourite weekend, and my decision to support myself by making this extra hour be MY extra hour!

I’m an awesome manifestor! I have been wishing for more time and this weekend I’ve got it – how about you? I’d love to hear how you are supporting yourself for a whole hour this weekend!

Namaste,

Suze

PS: BONUS for those in the Southern Hemisphere: My 2nd favourite weekend of the year is when the clocks go forward. Try this one on…

What is something in your life that you would love to simply “disappear”. Poof – have it be gone? Imagine putting it in a great big garbage bag. Use your imagination – the bag can be as big as you need it to be. Now imagine yourself taking the bag out to the curb. See the garbage truck coming up your street, hear the start and stop of the engine as it picks up your neighbour’s garbage. Feel the excitement as the truck approaches your bag. Now, turn away and walk over to your clock, move the hour forward. Poof. Turn back and imagine the garbage truck again. While your back was turned It has collected your bag! You see the truck’s tail lights as it moves down your street and away from you, getting quieter and quieter. It turns the corner, disappearing that garbage quickly and effectively!

I LOVE disappearing the garbage into the hour that vanishes!

PPS: OK – So there is no Daylight Savings time where you live. News Flash. You can pick ANY hour as a gift to support yourself, and ANY hour to disappear the garbage. If you need help, call a Belief Re-patterning Practitioner!

Normal? Or Typical?

In our neighbourhood, kids are back to school, and some activities are opening up. But it’s not “Normal”.

Have you been hoping, waiting, anticipating for things to get “Back to Normal”? This is the major source of stress. There IS a LOT of stress – and asking “When will things return to Normal?” increases that stress.

Rather than longing for “Normal”, try focusing on “Typical”. Trying to fit what is “Typical” this week into what was “Normal” last September, or pre-COVID, is crazy-making, and causes a LOT of stress. It puts you into REACT mode instead of RESPOND.

The world has changed. The reality is the world is always changing, however we had a big shift in the last 6 months, and collectively we are stressed trying to get our heads wrapped around all the changes.

It feels good to see kids in the playground at the schoolyard – that’s now typical. Remembering to take my mask with me everywhere is now typical. Spending more time at home – typical. By focusing on what is typical for you these days, you can reduce the angst and anxiety for yourself that seems to be prevalent everywhere around you. When I felt frustrated about my mask, I told myself I wasn’t being asked to carry a gun – which was what my father was asked to do. I shifted “Mask” to typical.

There’s always more than one perspective, and you get to decide what that perspective is supportive for you.

Victor Frankl’s book, Man’s Search for Meaning (1946) has provided a foundational touchstone for me during the past 6 months. Frankl, a psychiatrist in Vienna prior to World War II, spent most of the war in several Jewish concentration camps. After surviving one of the most horrendous experiences we can imagine, he wrote his groundbreaking book providing a basis for modern psychology.

Here’s two quotes from his work that have held me steady:

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing, the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

And

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

What are your typical responses these days? How’s your attitude? I hope you are filled with possibility, kindness, and positivity. I trust you are maintaining your ability to show up as the best version of you, even with the uncertainty and fear around you.

If you’re having challenges staying true to yourself, and noticing that you’re reacting in ways you don’t feel like you, know that myself and all of the Practitioners I have trained in Belief Re-patterning are here to support you in finding what’s typical for you.

Together, let’s make sure we are BEing our typical selves, in alignment with who we really are.

There lies our growth and our freedom.

Namaste,

Suze

Overwhelmed? You bet!

Overwhelmed? You bet!

Just about everyone I’ve encountered is feeling overwhelmed, myself included. Not every day, all the time, but there is more overwhelm.

You are not alone.

There is a simple explanation – there is a lot going on.

Humans are on a gigantic learning curve, and that takes a lot of energy. The things that we used to take for granted we now need to think through. Your subconscious mind runs the program on a day-to-day basis, and it simply doesn’t have reference points for all of the changes that are happening. This means your conscious mind is processing more information daily than it was designed to do.

The result? Overwhelm.

The response? Increase your self-care. It’s that simple.

You might think that is easier said than done! Let it be simple.

forgive myself for believing I don’t have the time or resources to increase my self-care.

I give myself permission to do something just for me – I could use the support.

I can be in overwhelm, or I can gift myself some simple self-care. I choose to gift myself simple self-care.

I can focus on all of the things I can’t do, or I can focus on simple self-care. I choose.

Today, I will go outside and stand in the grass in my bare feet – simple self-care helps me feel grounded and I can use that!

Tonight, I will relax with a couple of friends around the fire – that’s self-care and it feels connected. We will laugh – simple.

Tomorrow, I will start a new novel – that’s simple self-care!

I remember the great summer holiday I had last year that was good self-care. This year I am creating an amazing Self-care Stay-cation. I’ve got this!

I’m good at self-care. When overwhelmed shows up, it reminds me it’s time to increase my self-care.

I’m grateful to myself for listening to what I need, and acting on it!

I’ve included a quick video to support you in transforming overwhelm and finding your solid, grounded self.

How might you explore simple self-care? It’s the perfect antidote to overwhelm.

Namaste,

Suze
