My 6 Month Happy Body

Last week I got a request from Jay for a Happy Body update. I’ve been pretty busy with life, but “ask and you shall receive”. Here is my 6 month update on my experience using the weight-lifting exercises of the Happy Body Program. After my March Dexafit scan, which was the topic of episode 37, I was cruising along pretty well. In fact, I was so confident with the program I didn’t schedule another scan until June 3rd – 3 months later and 6 months after my initial wake-up call in December which I talked about in episode 18. The Happy Body program had delivered as promised the first 3 months using it. I would gain about 0.25 pounds of muscle each week as represented in lean mass gain on the Dexafit scan. I had also dropped from 28% body fat to 20% body fat in the three months, by eating as described in episode 32. This represents 12 pounds of fat lost. In March, my base weight that I was lifting went up to 7 pounds and in April I hit 8 pounds. I was still at 8 pounds when I did my...

My 6 Month Happy Body

What to Put Down (PC046)

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what my next show could be about. In fact, just this morning, I contemplated the show as I washed the dishes, cooked a tuna casserole and ate my breakfast. This affirmed an idea I’ve had all week that maybe it was time to end the Positive Change with Dorena podcast. My personal aspiration right now is to spend my time being present. When I am doing the dishes, I desire to be doing the dishes and nothing else. When I eat, I would like to be present in my eating. Instead, this morning I found myself talking to an imaginary podcast audience. In fact, this has been one of my major distractors this week. As I mentioned in episode 38, after doing a week long retreat I realized that being in the present moment would contribute the most to my desire to be free of all tension and mental afflictions. I tend to want more and more. If I can imagine it, I desire to do it. I have lots of ideas for projects, things I would like to try and creations to make. ...

My Horses and the Trust Technique (PC045)

Today we are going to talk about James French’s Trust Technique and how it brings up trauma to be released and resolved. Last week I talked about my horses and my path of finding a training method that would work for me and the animals. We continue today with a little more details about the animals and my experience applying the Trust Technique with them. I talked a little about my training efforts during the first weeks I had the animals in episode 44 with a focus on the StarHealing the blonde mare. Rusty Moon the mule has a different personality. In general, he seems more playful, easy going and gregarious. However, he is a little neurotic too and was initially obsessed with standing on the top of the 500 foot driveway watching the road. He would go ballistic if he didn’t have access to his vantage spot. This behavior worried me a great deal and I thought it might be connected to something in his past. I was told that he totally went crazy and kicked the trailer and mare during ...

My Horses and the Trust Technique (PC045)

Horse Healing Part 1 (PC044)

As promised last week, today I will update you on my journey with the horse and mule I rescued in January. You can hear the beginning of the journey as episode 24 https://positivechangewithdorena.com/can-horses-facilitate-trauma-healing-pc024/ But let me summarize the back story here. When I was looking into rescuing a horse in December, I contacted Glen Philips, an animal whisperer. He helped me pick out the animals and told me that if I was to ride the horse 2 hours a day the tension held in my right side would dissolve. As this was something I had been working on for years, it sealed the deal. Episode 31 is my interview with Glen and we talk about how animals can heal trauma. https://positivechangewithdorena.com/animal-communicator-tells-how-animals-clear-human-trauma-pc031/ Based on FaceBook photos and Glen’s advice I adopted a 5 year old Mule that was advertised as “Molly the Mule” and I named her Moon. However, Molly turned out to be Max the Mule and now he is called Rusty ...

There’s Been A Death In The Family (PC043)

I have been doing a lot of musing lately. Every day a new topic idea for a podcast, but nothing seems to solidify. This is what happens to me when I am in transition. It is like a big swirl of dust and I am unable to commit to any one idea. Sometimes I just have to wait until the dust settles to see what remains. A special thanks to Mitchy Austin for your review and your desire for more horse adventures. Another episode about my horse journey was a strong contender for this week’s episode. I have started to use the Trust Technique with them and have gotten some interesting results. However, that will have to wait. You see, my mother called yesterday and what she said and my reaction surprised me and has led to some thoughts I want to capture before they slip away into the sea of dust. I was on the other line when my mother called and she left me a message. As I tried to play it back it was muted at first. It was running in the middle when I finally got the sound to play. She said s...

There’s Been A Death In The Family (PC043)

Is Your Overwork Making You Sick? (PC042)

One of the most powerful tools I have ever used for personal change is the Twelve Steps originally created by the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous. In fact, when I first started doing the Change Anything Now process I referred to it as a facilitated Seventh Step. In the Seventh Step, we ask for our character defects to be removed. This is exactly what we do in the CAN process, except when we are doing CAN we are in the “Ground” state and the change occurs instantly. Further, we witness the change and are able to go on to remove anything that comes up that is blocking the change we are demanding. CAN is like the Twelve Steps on steroids. Today, one of my lifestyle renovation clients agreed to share our session working the Steps on an issue that was up for her. I have been working with this client for a couple of weeks. She originally was in a great deal of gut pain, but by using the Peak Performance pack to remove inflammation, my special gut healing tea, and the Change Anything Pr...

Have You Bought Into Scarcity? (PC041)

We have a special show today of a Change Anything Now facilitation session with a woman that likes what she does but isn’t making enough to make ends meet. This is a common issue in Northern California and actually one of the reasons I’ve focused on helping people get unstuck around money. For this woman, each month she has barely enough to cover the basics and nothing is left for high quality food or an occasional evening out. She has made a lot of amazing changes in her life and now is ready to tackle this decade long issue of not having enough. ** Recording of Change Anything Now session ** Some of the beliefs we deleted include: * Money is evil * I have a vow of poverty * Rich people are bad She was able to shift from a dislike of commercialism and consumerism to a more balanced view. In the end she resonated with the following beliefs: * I am aware * I am creative * I am power * I am money She even laughed when I suggested her current employer might offer her a $3 an hour rai...

Effortless Boundaries with Subconscious Change (PC040)

Welcome to Friends and Family Friday. We have a special show today. I am doing a Change Anything Now facilitation session with a woman that is working to organize alternative medicine healers in my county. Being a leader can lead to power struggles with other people and situations that are uncomfortable. Many times when things are not smooth or we are noticing the same types of situations arising in our lives, these situations are being created by our unconscious mind. Here we were able to clear uncover the source of this woman’s discomfort and clear it instantly. Some of the beliefs we found were: * I am responsible for other people’s feelings * I have a promise to take care of other people * “this person” is my teacher * I have to keep the door open to everyone * I hold other people’s suffering * I have to have “this person’s” approval * I will fail if I don’t have “this person’s” approval. At the end of the session I explain how to do what I do. The method is simple, ...

Seven Day Retreat (PC038)

Two weeks ago, I went into a silent retreat for a week. It was unplanned and very spontaneous. In fact, just before deciding to go into retreat I solidified an idea for next actions with my work. My work or business is a loose term I apply to all of my activities that are focused on connecting with the world outside my home. This podcast is part of my work. I have been looking for one or two areas to focus my attention for the next period of time and finally I had an idea I thought I would like to invest the time and energy into. The idea wasn’t a new one. It centered around my passions with Twelve Steps and Buddhism and was in alignment with my book: The Twelve Steps as a Path to Enlightenment – How the Buddha works the steps. As soon as it solidified, I decided to push pause and do retreat. After all, a good idea can always wait a week or even a month. I had worked so hard to come up with an idea I could stand behind, I was wondering what would happen if I didn’t have the idea....
