{Podcast} Rewrite Your Life Story with Chris O'Hearn

MINDBODYFOOD PODCAST How to Rewrite Your Life Story!   We all have that one story that we like to tell ourselves or others from our youth. A defining moment that may have felt unfair, painful, hurtful, justified. We’ve often told this story (what may feel like) a thousand times, and maybe that “fish” has gotten bigger every time you tell it! Where do the stories we tell ourselves come from? What decides if we react or respond in any situation? What holds our values and beliefs, and creates our feelings and behaviours? THE THOUGHTS IN OUR MIND. I’m sure you’ve heard that

How to Tap into the Power of I AM

How to Tap into the Power of I AM

THE POWER OF I AM How to tap into the infinite power of these two simple words I love the teachings of Louise Hay and the late Dr Wayne Dyer, who often talked about the significance of the words I AM and how we use them. When I’m teaching my clients or students about the subconscious mind and conditioned thinking, I emphasise the importance of how much power these two little words can have over our entire wellbeing.  Read the next two lines and take note of how each makes you feel… I am a good person who is kind, thoughtful and caring

Release Emotional Pain with This Simple Practice

Release Emotional Pain with This Simple Practice

A Simple Energy Practice to Release Emotional Pain   Ho’oponopono (pronounced “hoh-OH-pohno-pohno) is an ancient Hawaiian system of healing, problem solving and transformation. In Hawaiian, Ho’oponopono means “to make right or to rectify an error.” This may not necessarily be something literal that you have done. An “error” can also be a memory network of emotions, words, situations and behaviours that replay in your subconscious mind and feed your limiting beliefs. Are you carrying around emotional pain that has turned into physical pain? Do you feel heavy and weighed down by the burden of feelings? Are you using food, alcohol

Being Grateful at Christmas

Being Grateful at Christmas

Be Grateful at Christmas It’s the season of Turkey, trifle and last minute shopping. It’s also a time for giving, receiving and being thankful: a wonderful act of gratitude that I teach my students and clients to do on a daily basis; particularly for those struggling to shift negativity. When our attention is constantly focused on the annoying, unhappy, challenging, or just plain hard aspects of our lives, a low mood and feelings of helplessness can consume us – especially at Christmas time. In this state of mind it’s all too easy to forget that whatever it is, that it will pass.

Why Women are more alike than they think

Why Women are more alike than they think

Self-Love, a Retreat for the Soul Recently I hosted my 4 day Women’s Wellness and Meditation Retreat for a large group of beautiful and brave women. WOW! Awesome experience I’ve waited patiently for years to be able to create and host. Most of the ladies came from the Darling Downs; however a few travelled from New South Wales, ACT and the Sunshine Coast to be with us. These ladies were of course, all different. They ranged in ages from 27 to 66 years old. They each had a story – some quite a few. They had experienced all the modern

Eating Psychology Conference 2014

FREE Eating Psychology Online Conference Obesity, overeating, body image concerns, emotional challenges with food, and diet-related health issues have permeated our society, culture and mindsets. We’ve become the most unhealthy and unhappy we’ve ever been! Throughout my own recovery a huge A-ha! moment was realising that even though I was trying my hardest to watch what I ate and eat “healthy” food, my constant dogmatic, rigid and restrictive thinking was placing so much stress and imbalance within my body that it was impossible for me to find a healthy balance and weight. My digestive fire was just a glimmer of

Do you measure your worth by your weight?

Do you measure your worth by your weight?

Worth Your Weight Bathroom scales. Do you have one? We don’t have a bathroom scale in our house. I’ve not weighed myself in years. I don’t look to one for punishment, judgement or expectation ANY MORE. I once relied on the bathroom scales for my self-worth. I looked to it for my daily allowance of food. I feared its’ judgement but I was compelled to step on it and wait anxiously for my result. My whole mindset and mood was determined by that number. The thing now is that I no longer measure my self-worth by a number on the scale.

How to Make Worry Your Best Friend

How to Make Worry Your Best Friend

Worry Wars In a recent post on Facebook, Cheryl Richardson – the original Personal Growth Coach – made a lovely confession about worrying: “This morning I woke up worrying. It didn’t start out that way. I opened my eyes to bright sunlight and smiled as I felt the warmth of Michael’s body next to mine and the familiar weight of Poupon cuddled on top of my feet. My moment of bliss went to hell in a handbasket though, the moment my mind joined the party and created a racket!” Worrying is something we all do, however it’s usually at the cost of our

What My One-Legged Grandfather Taught Me About Life

What My One-Legged Grandfather Taught Me About Life

Listen and Learn When I was in grade one my maternal Grandfather taught me how to spell “encyclopedia”. I was the only child in first grade who could spell such a long and impressive word, which I loved to spell over and over with pride at my young abilities! That same year he also taught me how to recite the alphabet backwards. He used a nifty little rhyme which I’ve recently taught my step-children. Now that really impressed the other grade one kids! Every holiday my older sisters and I would stay with our maternal grandparents for at least a week. We would
