Avoiding Higher Guidance

Avoiding Higher Guidance. I think that from time to time we must all do it.

You know the drill: your plea goes out to those Higher Powered Beings who surely must be able, from their lofty and objective vantage points, to see the solutions that elude you:

* Should I move or stay put?
* Is there a better job out there for me?
* Am I headed in the right direction with my life?
* I'm exhausted all the time. Where's all my energy going?

Want to give it a try? Here's how:

Limiting Beliefs of the most Insidious Kind (The ones you don't know about.)

"Why even offer Wellness Coaching? After all, isn't it less challenging work to simply treat people's symptoms?" Seriously, this is a question people ask.

The answer is "yes." It's actually much less challenging work for me to simply treat a symptom and send the person home.

Yet treating and retreating symptoms that have the possibility of being resolved presents its own challenge -- to my value system. That is why, a number of years ago, I shifted gears in my personal study to gain a better understanding of how and why unconscious limiting beliefs affect body structure (and a whole lot of other health-related symptoms).

Here is the story:
