Description

What is it you really want to do? Are you putting it off until you lose weight? If so, you may unconsciously be holding on to this extra weight because you are afraid or hesitant to do what you dream of doing. It’s called being in your own way!

Why wait while life passes you by? Here’s what you can do to live the life you really want to live, no matter what you weigh…You do not need to wait until another month passes you by or for “next” year – let’s do this now!

EFT — simply defined — is a form of energy psychology which utilizes a physical “tapping” action along with verbal and mental imaging to resolve negative emotions and resulting physical ailments. Gentle, simple and effective on a variety of issues, EFT is something you have to “experience” to truly appreciate!

So, plan to join Pamela and other Ellwood Thompson enthusiasts for an introduction to tapping and experience what it can do for you!  We will be focusing on food cravings for weight release and control.

EFT is very easy to learn, and will help you:

  • Remove Negative Emotions – fear, anxiety, and anger that get in your way
  • Stop Procrastination and Self-Sabotage
  • Weight Release
  • Reduce Food Cravings
  • Reduce or Eliminate Pain
  • Implement Positive Goals by getting rid of thoughts/feelings that get in your way
  • Tap into your success

One Simple Change in Diet Changes so Much More

In just over thirty days from now the current federal “farm bill” which addresses agriculture programs and more importantly, farm subsidies is set to expire.  The U.S. House of Representatives narrowly passed its version of the farm bill last month by a close vote margin of 216 to 208.  The new House version of the farm bill contains some new controversial provisions: 1) eliminated the food stamp program as part of this historic legislation (whether there will be subsequent food stamp legislation remains to be seen) and 2) a requirement of more scientific and economic studies before a 2010 food safety law goes into effect.  Continue reading

Allowing Inner Peace

Ellwood’s Wellness & Relationship Coach Denise Dolan

Description

We’ve all had days when we wished we didn’t have to deal with one more round of life’s ups and downs; feelings of betrayal or disrespect, a perceived slight from a loved one, a threatening gesture from a co-worker, bad news in the community, unresolved politics, or injustices that leave harmless souls at stake, maybe even yours.

Sometimes life’s circumstances can bring out the worst in us and leave us feeling defeated.  Yet be of good cheer, for there is another way, a way of empowerment.

I myself experienced a raging life storm that lasted for five years – not a physical outbreak of Mother Nature, rather a series of circumstances that stripped my sense of self worth, security and confidence…the darkest night of the soul that I have ever experienced.

I quickly realized that I had two choices, I could give up in hopeless despair, and become a victim or focus my attention on what LIFE was asking me to become and grow beyond my experience. Fortunately for me, my loved ones and clients I continue to serve, I chose the latter.

I will reveal practical insights, action tools, and skills that helped me.  I guarantee that these wisdom practices will support you to grow and thrive as the landscape of life changes around you.

  • Learn how to thrive instead of merely survive in a fast moving world that doesn’t always seem to notice you.
  • Discover how to grow beyond circumstances of loss, change and betrayal
  • Discern who you are, without allowing circumstances of the outer world to define you.
  • Begin to experience firsthand how life is always working for you and never against you.

Find out how to allow inner peace in the midst of life’s storms and set yourself free. Come to one session or come to all.
