===================

What color do you need the most?

As a highly sensitive person with a great deal of emotional intelligence, I tune into colors more than any other vibrations. Give me the right color and I will follow you anywhere! Or, buy anything from you. Yes, I walk away from many products due to the boring colors offered.

What about you? Do you resonate with color? Or perhaps, you do not even notice the colors you wear, the colors you see, or the colors you need? Colors can brighten up your world and add MORE than spice to your life.

With the cold weather still hanging around here on the East coast, you may need encouragement to give up your depressed winter energy. To give up your depression you must take action on something healthy and vibrant to get your energy moving. Color Therapy is a lovely way to get your energy excited.

The Benefits of Color Therapy are:

1.  Adds vital energy to your brain and body
2.  Breaks up negative, stagnant energy
3.  Replaces anxiety and depression
4.  Feels good, makes you and your cells happy
5.  Reduces physical pain
6.  Relieves emotional pain
7.  No negative side effects

Color Therapy Exercise

Close your eyes and ask your body what color it needs. See what color comes to you. You may see the needed color streaming through your inner vision, hear the name of the color spoken out loud, or maybe your intuitive self gives you the information in yet another format.

If no color seems to stand out, use white. White has all the colors in it and is always a safe bundle of vibrations to use in Color Therapy. Anyway, once you start to do Color Therapy exercises the colors may change on you. This is normal, let your Intuitive Self be in charge. You cannot think or deduct your way to increased healthy energy.

Take three deep, belly breaths to relax and slow down your brain and nervous system. Make your breaths slow and deep, like you did when you were a baby, without thinking about what you are doing. Three deep breaths are enough to get you in Alpha brain waves.

With your eyes still closed, visualize the color your body says it needs in a small cloud in front of your eyes. Slowly breathe in the cloud of color into your nose and send it down to the bottom of your spine. Hold your breath for a few seconds while at the bottom of your spine. Next, slowly exhale the color cloud. Notice what color the cloud is when it leaves your body.

The color you need and how clear the color is when it comes out gives you helpful information about your health and wellness.

Keep Energy Grounded for Successful Spiritual Development and Transformation

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Ground Your New Energy.

===================

Are you on a spiritual path?
Are you developing your human potential?

A PBS documentary about John Denver revealed that John wrote Annie’s Song after having a Vibrant Moment or two as he was skiing down a slope in Aspen, CO. After a fight with Annie, his wife, John went skiing. As he was skiing, he let go of control and fell into the moment. The result was a sensuous song about love that became so famous it is often sung at weddings.

You can drop into the moment and enjoy vibrant moments if you let go of control. You can reach your creative goals just like John Denver. Do you desire more energy? Are you afraid of more energy? Both of these can be true at the same time. You may be pursuing self-actualization and spiritual development, yet be afraid of the new, creative energy when it arrives.

Many people are afraid to let go of control. When you let go of control you release new energy. The creative energy that has been inhibited for a very long time suddenly flows. This new energy must be integrated and grounded in order for you to continue on your personal growth path successfully.

I am always encouraging you to trust the natural process of transformation because it automatically leads to integration and grounding. However, you may have a hard time trusting your natural process. Your ego may get in the way and try to control the outcome. Your ego cannot integrate and ground your creative energy. Nope!

John Denver took to the slopes while he was emotionally upset. He let go of control and stayed grounded. As a result, he was able to use his newly released creative energy wisely to reconnect with his wife and connect with the hearts and souls of millions of others.

You can also use more of your human potential for exciting, fun, creative adventures if you stay connected to your body and Mother Earth. Ground your energy and keep it grounded for good mental health, continuous spiritual development, and creative expression.

Thanks for sharing some of your ACE’s last week. The most common Active Conscious Effort mentioned was walking. For those who missed the effective depression treatment tip, the ACE, read now: http://thevibrantmoment.com/?p=1430

Walking is wonderful. However, sometimes you need a physical act that is shorter, quicker, easier, and more convenient. So, continue creating safe, anxiety-free ACE’s to use when your energy becomes inert and you need more power.

Yesterday, in the women’s locker room of the Glenwood Springs Hot Pool, I was sitting on the bench, lathering on lots of lotion, (the air is so dry in Colorado you do not need to ever close the bag on your potato chips!) A new friend of mine was on my right, putting on her clothes, silently observing a first time visitor, who was getting help from me about how to handle her towel so she did not get it wet before she needed it to shower and how to lock her locker. She was on my left.

My towel advice was invaluable and much appreciated. The instructions about locking her locker were correct, nevertheless, the first time visitor’s money got stuck in the locker anyway. This led to a discussion among the three of us about the reason we even have to lock our possessions away from each other.

My new friend told a story about someone taking her old towel and a cheap shirt from her unlocked locker once. “I cannot understand why anyone would steal worthless items such as this from me.” I empathized and agreed with her, sincerely.

We both turned to look at the first time visitor. She was kicking the locker door vigorously, especially for her small size, to shake her money out. She suddenly stopped and said, “I am sure they just reached in and took everything without even looking at what they had!” Her quarters had not popped out, so she turned and walked out of the locker room in her black swimsuit, heading to the office to get her money back.

My new friend looked at me with an earnest expression on her face and gently said, “I never thought about that. Never once. She is probably right, they just grabbed everything without examining it. I have spent all this time searching for the reason someone would take things that were important to me but not valuable to them. Wow!”

I looked directly into her eyes, “That’s great. I never looked at it that way either.” After a moment of silent pondering between us, I continued, “This is the reason we need to hang out with each other more often and share our experiences. We get a completely new take on the situation.”

Tis true. Connecting, sharing, being close and intimate with others makes you more powerful, effective, and stronger. That is, if you are open to the new information and not shutting reality out by being closed and defensive. A new way of looking at your reality is one of the major benefits of working in groups.

If you feel open to new experiences, my in-person Nature Workshop is coming up May 2. You are sure to enjoy at least one major shift in awareness if you join our small group of women and men on the beach having personal growth fun in the sand.

In a safe, loving environment, you see new ways of looking at your life and POP! There are new possibilities that lead to more success. You learn physical ways to increase your energy immediately and new communication skills to become more effective in your relationships. You also enjoy a vibrant moment or two with others by the sea.

Winter Depression Treatment: Say No to Antidepressant Drugs, Use Dr. Jeanette’s ACE

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Use the ACE!

Publisher: Doris Jeanette, Holistic Psychology Mentor, Coach
Visit: http://www.drjeanette.com

===================

Feeling blue? Sad? Grieving?
Feeling so heavy you cannot move?
Is the sunlight in your life missing?

It has been a long, cold winter on the East coast of the United States. The lack of sunlight and inability to get out and move makes depression a psychological state you may have fallen into without even knowing it!

I always know when I am depressing my energy when I do not listen to music. The lack of music around me is a red flag that tells me I need to be vibrating a bit higher! You also need red flags that reveal you have dropped down into some degree of depression. You need to know when you are depressing your energy and you need to know how to increase your vibration.

Let’s help you start dancing around your NYC apartment with more energy and satisfaction. Even the ski slopes in Colorado are missing all the wonderful snow that is ending up in Boston. Boo, hoo. Change can be used for personal growth and self-improvement.

I developed the ACE several years ago to help people who are stuck in depression. Depression is a numb, mental psychological state where you do not move. Depressed energy is heavy, dense, slow, black, dark, and yucky. The laws of physics take over, as they always do … and you do not move your body. You do not want to move your body. You are inert.

The laws of physics tell you that it takes an equal or greater force to move an inert object. Viola! If you want to give up your depression you must use the ACE. The ACE is an Active Conscious Effort. When you have no energy, which is the same thing as no power, you must get power from somewhere. So, use the ACE, make yourself move in some, little, successful way.

You must choose something that has an equal or greater force for you. In other words, your ACE must be totally safe, easy to do and have no anxiety involved at all. If there is any degree of anxiety, you will not do it. Your ACE must be doable. Even desirable. So choose your ACE carefully so that it is effective in moving your energy.

When I am inert, I get up and wash clothes. Or, put on some music. Or, take a walk. Or, anything that is physical. Interesting, the only depression treatment that is known to be effective, based on solid research, is physical activity. Tis true. Psychologists who do not use the laws of physics with their clients are missing the New Psychology boat.

Stop depressing your energy and get up and shake a leg. Or arm. Your ACE will keep you sane until spring. I would love to hear what ACEs are effective in helping you move your inert energy.

Learn to Read Body Language, Feel Subtle Energy

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Feel Subtle Energy.
Tools from the Center for New Psychology
Publisher: Doris Jeanette, Holistic Psychology Mentor, Coach
Visit: http://www.drjeanette.com

===================

Do colors jump out at you?
Do you smell odors others miss?
Do you know the outcome of events before it happens?

There are many differences between a holistic psychologist and a traditional psychologist. For a complete list of the differences between the old and new psychology check out the definition of the New Psychology here: http://www.drjeanette.com/newpsychology.html

One of the major differences is a holistic psychologist works with all of you. Working with all of you is what makes your psychological transformation and therapeutic process “wholistic.” This means your mind, body, and spirit are always included in how your problems are defined, addressed, and solved.

For example, if you already feel subtle energy, a holistic psychologist would teach you how to use your highly sensitive nature to move forward faster. If you did not trust your perceptions, I would teach you to feel the energy difference between your intuition and anxiety so you learn to trust and use your inner knowings to increase your self-esteem and be more successful.

After all, your intuition and inner knowing have not been damaged by your past learning history. So, no matter how much discouragement, neglect, and abuse you have experienced, you can learn to tap into your ability to sense, feel, taste, hear, see, and perceive the information and data that exists in your world.

Subtle energy means any energy that you do not normally notice. There are multitudes of inner and outer subtle energies you can become aware of and use to your advantage. Just sitting on a park bench with a completely relaxed body can expand your awareness of subtle energy if you pay attention to your feelings.

You can feel the tension in your body coming and going as you register your different anxiety levels as people come and go. You could feel and see the fear in others as they walk past you as you consciously improve your ability to read body language. You can even notice a harmful energy you need to get up and walk away from.

Being relaxed is essential if you want to sense more subtle energies. Like a good actor, you must relax your body in order to access your colorful emotions, your physical feelings, and the many other subtle realties that exist in your world.

Take time to relax wherever you are, and sense more of the subtle energy in your world. Relaxing gives you more vibrant moments, which lead to increased health and wellness, peace of mind, and good fortune.

Mental Health Advice: Trust the Truth, Not False Beliefs

===================

Where are you stuck?
Can you tell the difference between false beliefs and truth?

Frequently, in holistic psychology sessions with my clients, I sense and feel a woman or man to be in a physical state of energy that is different from where he or she thinks they are. This is the reason it is so reliable and effective to use energy as the basis of the new, holistic psychology. The truth is easy to know when you learn to read and sense the information in physical and emotional energy.

For example, I hear a very harmonious male voice telling me that he is anxious and fearful and had a terrible week. His words do not fit his energy. His mental perception does not match up with his physical and emotional truth.

Or, I hear a woman tell me that she is doing great, everything is fine, and she sounds very depressed and miserable. Her mental perception has no basis in reality. Her energy is down and out, no matter what her thoughts are telling her, or what her words say to me.

In both these cases, the ego energy is reversing reality so the client does not know the truth. The man’s ego energy is telling him a false belief about his success in the hope of keeping him in control. The woman’s ego is telling her a false belief about her lack of success in the hope of keeping her in control.

You are full of false beliefs you learned from religions, governments, and parents. These false beliefs keep you stuck and controlled. You must know the difference between a false belief and the truth if you want to achieve self-esteem, be successful, and enjoy life.

You cannot stand in false beliefs and be successful. Only when you stand in reality can you manifest what you want in life. If you are a psychologist, coach, or therapist you need to know how to read energy so you teach your clients how to read energy. I teach my clients to read energy so they know when their ego is reversing reality and when they are standing in their truth.

Armed with this knowledge, they have the means with which they can become effective and successful. When you discover a reversal of reality that is fooling you, rejoice! You can learn how to break free from your false belief so you stand in your truth.

No matter what your truth is, you move forward immediately becoming stronger and more self-confident.

=========================

REVERSING REALITY? This reversal of reality is often found in highly sensitive people who have been conditioned to distrust their perceptions. Could this be you or a loved one?

When Life is Hard: Love Yourself, Stay with Emotions and Feelings

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Love Yourself.
Tools from the Center for New Psychology
Publisher: Doris Jeanette, Holistic Psychology Mentor, Coach
Visit: http://www.drjeanette.com

===================

When life is hard and difficult, what do you do?

In early December, I wrote this: “Regular readers of The Vibrant Moment know that since last Spring my mother’s health has been failing. I shared my initial panic at the thought of her death in April and some of my ensuring fears and anxieties during the summer. Right now, I am by her side, as she is moving out of sight into another form. Death is the ultimate letting go for both her and her children.”

The reality that my mother was dying was the most difficult experience I have ever lived through. I was so sad, so often, for so long. What I felt and where I was was hard,and there was absolutely nothing I could do to make my mother’s death not be difficult.

This is the point of wise decisions. You stay with yourself when life is hard and difficult, or you go unconscious and miss wonderful vibrant moments all along the way. If you deny a hard and difficult reality, you block out everything else that is real. Your defensive wall of energy repeals light, vibrant moments, joy, pain, and love. This is a physical fact as well as a psychological fact.

Did you block out light and love as a child when life was hard without even knowing it? Most children do. This is the reason alternative therapy, emotional health coaching, energy work, and personal growth programs are essential. Working with a skilled professional teaches you how to stop blocking out the love and light that exists around you all the time.

You get much better results in life if you accept reality, accept your emotions and feelings, and love your authentic self each step of the way. The two major psychological problems that occurred when I did not love myself during my mother’s death were feeling guilty and feeling sorry for my mother.

I spent hours with my mother everyday for her last five weeks. Nevertheless, one Sunday, I felt sick, depressed, and miserable. As soon as I realized I felt guilty that I was not doing EVEN more for my mother AND feeling sorry for her, I climbed back out of the pity pit and stopped my self-judgments. You can also develop this life-saving skill to use when you get stuck in judgment and guilt.

My mother left her body Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015. Wow, is all I could say and all I can say. Wow. Conscious dying is as powerful as conscious living. There are intense, rich, deep, vibrant moments all along the way. The next time a loved one is dying, spend quality time with them. Feel them, get to know them without their mask, and trust the process of death just as you trust the process of life.

You will be richer and more alive, I promise.

Anxiety, Fear, Desensitization, Relaxation and No More Nightmares!

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Relax into Fears.
Tools from the Center for New Psychology
Publisher: Doris Jeanette, Holistic Psychology Mentor, Coach
Visit: http://www.drjeanette.com

===================

Thank you to a current client for the feedback about last week’s newsletter: “Just wanted to say I really enjoyed this one. Very informative.”

And for the question about real fears:

“I was wondering if you would consider doing a newsletter on real fears. I am often aware of real fears that pop up now that I have taken your anxiety course. I still don’t always know how to handle them, feel safe, or know how to proceed.”

When I was a little girl, living on a rural farm in North Carolina I had nightmares about big monster snakes chasing me. In reality, I lived with snakes all around me. Some were good snakes my father never killed because they ate the rodents. Some were bad snakes my father always killed because they could kill us.

My real fear was of putting my hand into the tomato patch to pick a delicious tomato where a copperhead snake might be taking a nap, this happened to my mother, or of stepping on a huge snake that was much longer than me in the grass as I ran to my favorite maple tree to play. This almost happened, but I stopped short of stepping on the snake because I saw a bit of black move in the deep grass just in time!

Real fears are everywhere and they never go away. As humans, we have to learn a great deal of essential information in order to survive. This means you must learn how to take care of yourself in relationship to many real dangers. If you want to be free and happy, learning how to stay safe needs to be your primary goal.

As a child, I did not know the difference between a bad and good snake even though my father was teaching me. When a snake was sighted, my father used a hoe to put it into a large plastic bucket with a lid. Containment kept the snake from hurting anyone. Then, he got the encyclopedia to identify the snake for himself and educate me. After he was sure it was a good snake, he let it go. If it was a bad snake he killed it.

My nightmares continued because the small picture in the book did not look anything like the real snake in the bucket. Besides, those little details on the head of the snake could only be seen when you were so close to the snake it could bite you. Ye gads!

When I was in the third grade, I checked a large, picture book out of the library about snakes. Somehow, I knew I needed to get closer to snakes. If I wanted to relax and feel safe, I had to stop being terrified of the cottonmouths that lived around the pond. It was clear they were not going to move out of the neighborhood!

So, slowly, a little bit at a time, I opened my library book and closed it. I looked at the different snakes over and over again until I could see them and not be terrified. I also read about snakes and studied their habits. Honestly, to this day, I still have trouble telling the difference between a good and bad snake on my adventures into nature.

Nevertheless, I learned enough about snakes to protect myself no matter where I find them. I trust myself to be wise and respectful to all creatures as I enjoy myself in nature. This same step-by-step desensitization process is what you must do until you relax into your fears.

Also, make sure you have the necessary education about the facts, habits, and realities of your real fear. Next, develop the abilities and self-confidence you need to take care of yourself in relationship to your fears.

When your out-of-control nightmares stop, you are no longer afraid.

First, let’s define what letting go actually is: Letting go is relaxing, surrendering, flowing. An example is what you do or do not do in the natural river current. Do you go with the flow or resist the flow? To enjoy a vibrant moment, you are physically relaxed in the natural flow of energy around you.

The opposite of letting go is: posturing, deciding, controlling. When you fight to swim up stream or refuse to get in the water you are not letting go. You are controlling. You are trying to be in charge of what happens and make things the way you want them to be or not be.

Is it easy for you to relax and surrender? Or is it easy for you to control and decide? Unless you have engaged in years of personal growth, you probably are not comfortable relaxing and surrendering.

In order to let go of control and trust the reality around you you have to feel safe and secure with your ability to go with the flow. Is this river really safe and am I prepared and strong enough to go where it is going for the time I am in it? To reach this degree of physical and emotional security you must consciously examine and transform your real fears, learned anxieties, and mental judgments.

Therefore, the answer to the question, “Why is it that I cannot let go and relax?”is: You are afraid. Fear is what keeps you from letting go and relaxing. Anxiety is always involved, but underneath your irrational anxiety is a real fear (or real fears) that must be resolved in a way that allows you to be comfortable and secure.

Only when you are not afraid and anxious can you relax and surrender. This is a given. It would not be wise for you to let go and relax if you were in any real danger. Real fears must be taken seriously, and never denied. Real fears are nature’s way of keeping you safe and sane.

Regular readers of The Vibrant Moment know that since last Spring my mother’s health has been failing. I shared my initial panic at the thought of her death in April and some of my ensuring fears and anxieties during the summer. Right now, I am by her side, as she is moving out of sight into another form. Death is the ultimate letting go for both her and her children.

Invest in the time, energy, and effort that it takes to learn how to safely let go and relax as you move through real life events. There is no other psychological skill more important.

Learning how to let go and relax dramatically improves your experiences, adventures, and self-esteem. Do it.

Personal Growth Advice: Put Power Tools in Your Toolbox, Learn How to Use Them!

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Use Your Tools Effectively.

What tools do you have in your personal growth toolbox?
Do you know where and how to use each tool?

Let’s look into your toolbox and see how prepared you are for personal and professional success. You need a toolbox full of the best tools you can find. Where do you look for effective, powerful tools?

Are the available psychological offerings approved by managed care insurance enough to help you be effective and successful in reaching your personal growth goals? At the top of the current evidence based list traditional psychologists are teaching you in 2015 we find: Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, and EMDR

When I look at this list as a holistic psychology with thirty-seven years of experience teaching people how to successfully overcome anxiety, I see a limited list of techniques, which are tools. Before managed care, psychologists offered these evidence-based psychological tools: Relaxation Therapy, Desensitization, Assertiveness Training, Reality Therapy, Paradoxical Intention, Consciousness Raising, Sex Therapy, and meditation. Consider getting an education in some of these powerful techniques.

In addition to the above tools, my toolbox has: Body Language, Energy Awareness, Creative Meditation, Sound Therapy, Color Therapy, Music Therapy, Body Awareness, Emotional Awareness, Psycho-physical Exercises, Visualization, and High Play.

Of course you need a hammer, screwdriver, wrench, and pliers in your toolbox. Just one tool is not enough. Pick the most effective, powerful tools you can find and get your toolbox ready for personal growth. However, having the correct power tools in your toolbox is not enough.

Any technique is only as effective as the person using the tool. Do you know when, where, and how to use your CBT to be effective? Do you know when to you use your hammer and what to do with your mindfulness? You need good tools in the first place AND you must be able to use those tools effectively in real life.

For example, a friend recently complained to me that Relaxation Therapy had never helped him. He knew I studied with Joe Wolpe in the 1970’s. Dr. Wolpe, taught his students to desensitize people to anything that made them anxious using Relaxation Therapy. My friend complained to me that he had listened to so many relaxation audios and guided meditations over and over again and had never experienced any relief from his generalized anxiety.

My friend had Relaxation Therapy in his toolbox but he did not know how to use his relaxation tool effectively. To put a picture up on the wall, you have to pick up your hammer and hit the nail at the correct time, in the right way, to be effective. If you want to unlearn your anxiety responses you have to use your tool of relaxation with great precision.

If you do not use your relaxation response at the correct time to desensitize yourself to the proper specific stimulus then of course it does not work. Having the ability to relax, be mindful, meditate are not effective in the bigger picture of transformation unless you use your tools correctly. To be effective you must unlearn your unhelpful, anxious behaviors and avoidance reactions.

IMAGINE: You get your toolbox full of effective, power tools. You learn how to use your tools effectively so you hit the nail on the head, thereby reaching your personal and professional goals in 2015.
