Rules to Live By

Rules to Live By by Kathy Atkinson

The other day someone asked my how I stayed so thin. Well, thin is a subjective term that I wouldn’t necessarily apply to myself, but I have managed to stay at the same comfortable weight for 30+ years (with minor fluctuations in that time). How do I manage to stay the same weight? I have Food Rules that work for me.

One of the “rules” that you hear all the time is that you need to eat breakfast in order to lose weight and stay thin. Recently I heard even more specifically that you need to eat 30 grams of protein within 30 minutes of waking up to rev up your fat burning. Possibly, but that is not happening in my world. I have discovered that I don’t need to eat breakfast and in fact “I don’t want to eat breakfast” until I have worked out, showered and had time to get hungry…usually around 10-11 am. That works for me. I have discovered that if I eat an early breakfast, it revs up my appetite and I am hungrier all day and tend to eat more. My rule for breakfast is to eat when I am hungry and when I feel ready to eat.

I have also learned over the years that I don’t feel good if I eat after 6 or 7 pm. My food needs to be digested before I go to bed. I also put on weight if I eat late in the evening. I typically like to eat around 4-5 pm and I only need to eat 2 times a day since I am not very tall and don’t need a lot of calories. If I would eat 3 meals a day or the 6 smaller meals that are talked about these days, I would put on weight. My rule for the evening is to be finished eating by 6 pm. Of course that doesn’t always happen, but I feel better when it does. (And, interestingly if I eat late at night, I wake up really hungry.)

I also have rules for the sweets that I eat and high caloric drinks that I consume because the rules work for me, not because I am trying to “control my weight”. The rules I have developed over the years help me to look and feel better. I have learned that too much sugar makes me feel bad.

What rules have you created in your life that work for you and wouldn’t necessarily work for anyone else?

Another area I just began exploring is around my Money Rules. I have never had money issues and I was wondering what rules I have in place that keep me from living paycheck to paycheck. Here are a few things I discovered.

I had a paper route at the age of 10 so I got accustomed to having money at an early age and was able to spend it freely at the local candy store. My first rule of money was “I expect to have money.”
My next rule around money came when I was in high school and I decided that I wanted a job/career that was high paying so I would never have to move back home. So rule number two is “I expect to have a high paying job”. (This one was really strong, so it might be considered more of a vow I created, but it works the same as a rule.)

After I got married, my husband and I would each take about $50 a week for spending money and deposit the rest in the bank. On occasion we would do something out of the ordinary and we would be out of money before the next pay check. (This was long before ATM’s.) When this happened, I would catch myself saying “I don’t have any money.” Not a good statement to make if you understand that you get what you focus on and talk about. I made a “rule” to never be without money and always have a few hundred dollars in my purse and a few thousand dollars in my house, so I would never again use the statement “I don’t have any money.”

Are you telling the Universe on a regular and consistent basis that you don’t have any money?

I also have rules about paying bills as soon as they arrive. I pay credit cards off in full. I pay cash for cars and I don’t spend ever cent I make…I save money.

Take some time to explore the rules you have set in place for your life. Are they truly your rules or someone else’s rules that don’t really support who you are? If you want to be your ideal weight, you need Food Rules that work for you, not someone else. If you want control over your finances, you need to adopt Money Rules that work for you.

A client once asked me about how I paid my bills, once a month or as the came in. I pay them as they arrive. My client was told by an expert that she should pay them one time a month, but she was experiencing losing them and forgetting to pay them, so that rule wasn’t working for her. That would happen to me also if I didn’t pay them as they came in. I like my bills off my plate as soon as possible. That approach might not work for you, but only you know what will work for you to stay on track.

Explore the Food Rules and the Money Rules and notice what is working for you and what rules need to be changed.

Time for a Name Change? by Kathy Atkinson

Time for a Name Change? by Kathy Atkinson

Have you ever contemplated changing your name? Does your current name reflect who you are or does it feel like it limits you in any way?

I once asked a friend why she kept her ex-husband’s last name instead of changing it back to her maiden name, especially since her marriage was an emotional drain on her that lasted many years. She explained to me that her childhood wasn’t much better and she didn’t want to take on, or take back, that old energy.

As I was thinking about this subject, I realized that over the years, I have met many people who have legally changed their names or unofficially adopted new names.

Typically, business owners and professionals avoid using their nicknames so they appear more professional and are considered an expert. Would you rather learn from Robert the expert or Bob?

A friend of mine named Sandy was going to run for political office a few years ago. She let everyone know in her inner circle that she wanted to be called “Sandra” during the campaign because she wanted to adopt a more professional persona.

An image consultant that I am friends with dropped his first name and began using his initials to evoke a more professional image.
I frequently have clients adopt a “new persona” when they want to show up in their lives differently. This process can involve choosing a different name or more typically by adding the characteristic that they want to exhibit, such as “Connie the Confident”, “Lucky Larry” or “Mary the Magnificent Money Attractor”.

We see branding personas on the internet all the time. From Ezine Queen, Video Marketing King, Article Marketing Expert to Money Guru. My EFT colleague Jan Luther calls herself “The Ego Tamer”. These names help to keep the business owner focused and on track regarding the information they want to share and also boosts the expert image they want to portrait to the public.

Are you feeling stuck in your life or in your career? Would it be of value to you to adopt a name change, a new persona or a new branding identity at this point in your life?
A colleague of mine recently changed just one letter in her name and immediately noticed a difference in her interactions and conversations with others. What change would you like to make?

Action Challenge

Actors play different roles all the time. Choose a different role to play.

Choose a name to reflect the image or persona that you want to convey.

Adopt the new behaviors, beliefs and physical characteristics that correspond with your new persona…“Act the part.”
Have fun showing up differently. Have fun “playing the part”.

You are not stuck in the same old, same old. Give yourself permission to be different. Give yourself permission to be your true self with a different name or different persona.

The Power of Why by Kathy Atkinson

The Power of Why by Kathy Atkinson

“When you talk about what you want and why you want it, there's usually less resistance within you than when you talk about what you want and how you're going to get it. When you pose questions you don't have answers for, like how, where, when, who, it sets up a contradictory vibration that slows everything down.”

--- Abraham - Excerpted from the workshop in San Antonio, TX on Saturday, January 29, 2005 # 19

If you want something, you need to know why...

Why do you want more money?

Why do you want to be more successful?

Why do you want to lose weight?

Why do you want to find the love of your life?

If you look deep enough, it is because you are looking to experience a particular emotion or feeling.  Do you want more money because you will feel safer, more secure, more in control, or more confident? Do you want to be more successful because you will feel more satisfied, more fulfilled or happier?

Knowing why you want something activates the Law of Attraction and creates an energetic alignment with your desires.

As Abraham mentions in the quote, when you don’t have the answers to how you are going to make more money, when it is going to show up or who is going to help you make it happen, your questions, discomfort and disbelief slows down the manifesting process.

I was working with a client recently and she had the desire to make more money. I asked her how much money she wanted to make each month. I asked her why she wanted the money. I asked her about her resistance to making that kind of money and she couldn’t see how she could make that much. Trying to figure out the how’s, slows down and can stop the manifesting process.

Whatever your goal or desire, keep your focus on why you want it.

Action Challenge

  1. Decide specifically what you want.
  2. Write down why you want it.
  3. Keep asking “why do I want that” until you get to the feelings and emotions you are looking to experience.
  4. Amp up the feelings you want to experience everyday by reviewing your list of “why I want it”.
  5. Notice when you feel, hear or sense any resistance showing up. Listen for that little voice that says, “How it that going to happen?” or “When is it going to happen?” Remind yourself to just stay focused on why you want it and what emotions you want to experience.
  6. Then take inspired action toward your goal or desire while you keep your focus on WHY you want it.

Personal Mastery Readings with Deb DeLisi

Recently I had a reading with Deb DeLisi which included an intuitive sketch. It was so much fun and so interesting that I wanted to share her information. The picture "Wing of Light to Guide You" is what she sketched for me. Isn't it fabulous?? Check out her information and see if you feel guided to have a reading. Be sure to check out the artwork and products on her site. They are beautiful.

Personal Mastery Readings to assist you in stepping forward on your path 

Do you ever wonder: "Who am I? What is the next step on my path? I know I have a purpose but it's not clear what it is." 

There is so much uncertainty in the world today. Institutions, places, cultures, and structures we once thought of as solid and permanent are slowly dissolving and falling away. As we leave the old behind, we draw closer to the Age of Light and many now feel a calling to step forward into the role you came here for. 

Intuitive artist, expressionist and channeler of information, Deb DeLisi, offers personal reading sessions to assist those who feel unsure of how to make the next step or what it may look like. She works with you personally, one-on-one, and offer words of clarity. The guidance is channeled from a group of energies that give the name “Keepers of the Dream”. This group that comes forward is a unique collective of energies, specific for each person. Deb's readings also include a sketched symbol which is revealed intuitively during or immediately after the session. This symbol provides meaning, focus and support for you, and includes an interpretation and how to use it.
Sessions are done over the phone, and last about 30 minutes. Cost is $55 which includes the sketch and an interpretation of your Personal Mastery Symbol. To learn more about Deb DeLisi or inquire about a reading, email info@delisiart.com or visit her site: www.delisiart.com

Time for a Get-A-Way?

Time for a Get-A-Way?

Do you occasionally spend quiet time alone and away from your usual routine?

One of the home-based business clients I work with makes it a regular habit to go to a nearby hotel whenever she needs to get some significant work done. Away from the distractions of laundry, dishes, children and a husband, she is able to be really productive.

I had a conversation with a client recently around her resistance to spending time writing down her “ideal life” experience. When she gets home from work, she is too tired and drained to attempt such a creative activity. On the weekends, like everyone else, she has to take care of the typical shopping and cleaning activities, so there never seems to be time. We discussed the possibility of her going to a hotel, a bed and breakfast or perhaps a spa in order to get her away from her usual surroundings and activate her creative thinking.

It can be difficult to explore new ideas and get work accomplished when you are in your usual environment. It is hard to be creative when laundry is piling up, there are dishes to be done and dust balls to chase after.

When you get away from your regular environment and remove the normal distractions, you open yourself up to new energy, new thoughts, new ideas and amazing productivity.

When was the last time you purposely spent a significant amount of time alone, in a new environment, with the intention to activate some creative thinking? Can’t remember? Never?

Many people have a special place in their home that is dedicated to meditation, journaling or creative thinking, but it is still helpful to get out of your usual environment in order to active something new and different on occasion.

A few years ago, I wrote at least ten new EFT tapping scripts one night in my hotel room after attending a daytime workshop event. Without all the usual distractions, I was able to tap into a creative energy flow that was fun and easy to achieve.

Can you remember a time when you had a similar experience?

Getting out in nature is a great way to free up your creative thinking mind, but the weather doesn’t always cooperate. I suggested to a client living in a major city that she seek out a museum with a quiet secluded sitting area as a possible escape from the same old energy. A local library might work also if you aren’t easily distracted by others in the room.

As Albert Einstein said, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” A fresh, new or different environment can get you out of the same old thinking.

Action Challenge

If you want to change something in your life and it hasn’t happened yet, make a commitment to schedule a get-away with the intention of activating some new thoughts, ideas and action steps to take.

A hotel room may be out of your budget, but perhaps you can go to a friend’s house and lock yourself in their guest room for a few hours. Be creative and come up with a fun get-away for yourself.

Remember, you can’t hear what your heart is telling you unless you take the time to remove distractions, get quiet and listen.

To your success,
Kathy Atkinson

Abraham Quote - FEEL Healthy, Vital, Alive & Prosperous

You will notice that those who speak most of prosperity, have it. Those who speak most of health, have it. Those who speak most of sickness, have it. Those who speak most of poverty, have it. It is Law. It can be no other way... The way you feel is your point of attraction, and so, the Law of Attraction is most understood when you see yourself as a magnet getting more and more of the way you feel. When you feel lonely, you attract more loneliness. When you feel poor, you attract more poverty. When you feel sick, you attract more sickness. When you feel unhappy, you attract more unhappiness. When you feel healthy and vital and alive and prosperous—you attract more of all of those things.
--- Abraham

Simply Raw Video Series - A Must See if You Care About Your Health

Remember the film, “Super Size Me”?

You know the one where a guy in New York city (Morgan Spurlock) decided to eat nothing but McDonald’s for 30 days?

It was funny, educational and took the world by storm with it’s powerful message about the fast food industry.

In the film Morgan showed what happens if you eat terrible food for 30 days.

Well I want to share with you an exclusive, behind the scenes video interview with Morgan Spurlock that I think is critically important for you to watch for one specific reason…

I keep noticing people telling me that they want to get results in their life but that they don't have the energy.

And I keep noticing one key component that people aren't focusing enough on that has helped me get results in my life…and that's having an exceptional level of health and vitality.

I want you to ask yourself…
What would your life be like if you had double the level of energy that you have right now?

What could you achieve that you're not achieving right now?

If you want to find out then I highly recommend you watch this video now. Click here.

This video is part of an amazing 100% fr*ee video series that also includes Dr. Joel Fuhrman, raw food expert David Wolfe and Mike Adams that is being released for a limited time only.

The video series is being released by the makers of the film "Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days," a film that was essentially the opposite of Morgan's film (eating good food for 30 days instead of bad food), and is getting amazing reviews.

If you're struggling with any health issues or if you'd just like to know how to drastically improve the level of health, energy and vitality that you have on a daily basis then I highly recommend you watch this video.

In fact, I don't think there's a single person who couldn't benefit from watching these videos. They're just that important…

Check out the video with Morgan Spurlock right away.

To your health!
