We are made of the same things as plants, cars, water, animals, etc. The defining difference from a structural perspective is the specific minerals used, the minerals’ arrangement, and the strength of the attraction. Our body responds to changes in its internal and external environment dependent on the minerals and molecules present at any given moment. We can create change by making mindful choices of what we put into, onto, and through our body and the thoughts we think, and then take action on, letting go of limiting, harmful beliefs that are ‘trapped’ in our psyche and subconscious body.
This concept alone encourages us to look at what we eat, the state of our body, what we tell our body and our stories we have made up around food. Some of them are really out there. If you want to read a bit more, here is parts of the book, What the Mind Sees, the Body Feels, Creates and Attracts.

The low reactive food list to work from This list of foods contain the 'safest' from the food chemical possibilities - salicylates, amines, glutamates. When we reduce the amount of triggers going into our body, the body has more nutrients, energy and capacity to process what is already there. Most toxins are stored in the fat cells, which means when we do reduce our fat volume, the chemicals stored there are also released back into circulation for our liver to detox. An unhealthy or unsupported liver during this phase is not a wise move as it increases the chance of toxicity.

If this is not an option, then focus on the healing and forgiving exercises in the program such as EFT, Memories, Balcony and Re-writing your life script. If at any time you become too unsettled, get help. You can contact us at Steps to Change and we can work out the way forward through this phase. One advantage of being a trained Dietitian, with interests in mind - body interactions and in particular gut health. It is the only reason why I put this module in.

Goal setting isn't new, we know it is useful and can be powerful. Even if you don't realise it you are constantly goal setting... think about this. Every decision to do, be, or have something is a mini goal. Deciding to go out for dinner is a goal, then the strategy of where, and getting there are the steps to bring this goal to reality.
Goals are not only those hoop high shots that seem out of your reach. The small goals are essential to achieve the big ones, and the momentum created when the small goals are celebrated, and move into the next goal. Each one is a stepping or foundation step for the next big one.
In most instances, goals in fact start as a dream. We see, hear or read something and a thought can be fleeting through the mind that goes something like "Yeah, that would be cool to do, be or have that" Therefore, daydreaming is an essential part of goal setting and the frequency you dream such is in meditation, reading, watching movies, doodling, art, creatives, projects, study, travel; basically the constant exploration of new information, situations etc. increases the fodder for the imagination to consider more and different goals.
For many, we don't give ourselves permission to consider the more out there ideas as possible. We may knock them down, dispute the notion, ignore, say negative things, or say it is isn't possible or any number of statement that negates the possibility to achieve something new.
Goal setting is a two sided experience first we need to give ourselves permission to write down what we think or are inspired without judgement, then the other side is to transform the negativity, fear and blocks that get triggered by the inspiration. The magic happens when we transform the blocks and limiting beliefs to create space for the inspired dream to come into reality.
Give it a go. Download the goal making activity and see what is hiding deep in your psyche. Combine it with EFT, Forgiveness and Decluttering to maximise your outcomes.
Dealing with your health blocks starts with releasing everything that’s not serving you anymore. Here, encourage you to take stock and declutter mental, emotional and energetic limitations simplifying your life to the things that contribute to your highest-grade life.
Don’t underestimate the life-changing effects of physically decluttering your life.
Consider the following:
What can be gifted to others? Can things be given a birthday presents etc, or given to charity so they earn a bit of money for furthering their work, and someone else can love it? If it isn’t good enough for that, thought it out. The more we hold onto old broken things, it is like a chain around our progress. It keeps us heavy and stuck.
Just let it go. You don’t even have to replace it all straight away, you can upgrade slowly and incrementally. See what your life feels like without all of those items.
What can be cleaned up or repurposed. Can something be used in a different way if you can’t bear to give it up?
If not, then it has to go.

Forgiveness I think is one of the hardest things to do, besides parenting. Forgiveness asks us to reach the point of understanding, tolerance and appreciation for the other person's point of view. Not an easy feat when we are hurting badly at the hand of someone else's choices.
Holding on and not forgiving is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. Resentment and heavy emotions are toxic, lowers your energetic vibration and changes body function.
DownI will challenge you on this point. Everyone, even yourself act from a place of your past experiences, the way you see life, your beliefs and what is important to you. These are your truths, the way you live your life. You want others to respect your choices and see your point of view. You, and only you are responsible for what you think, say and do. How you react or respond and it is your responsibility to make conscious choices from a place awareness of what you are doing. Autopilot will happen, and in the early phase of change, that is all we act from - doing what we have always thought, said and done. But, so has everyone else.
As we start to become more aware, we need to own our 'stuff' check through what we think, say and do and see if they are things we choose to think, say and do, and use them wisely. We are in control of how we react or respond, how we feel and what we choose to hold onto.

Knowing where you are, and where you would like to be in the various parts of your life is invaluable. As the saying goes Awareness is the First Step. Without awareness, we really don't know what, or why we might like to consider anything different. We become complacent, lazy and stagnant and we wonder why life can be quite boring.
This exercise starts you to think where you are and which parts of your life you might like to change. Have fun, and be sure to be gentle with yourself. If you have been asleep for a while, we have all done it and may well do so again in the future. :)

Many of us have little idea of the good happening in our life, or we compartmentalise good things with arbitrary rules about what counts and what doesn’t. In the past we may have been told it was selfish to look after our own needs, and we had no right to ask for what we needed, wanted or desired. We may have been told to reject or minimise complements or that people wanted something from us if they acknowledged a skill or our looks.
We might think when people step in and help is a good thing, and a real way they show you they care, but when people give a compliment, you put it down or become suspicious. We all have our own love language currency, but just because the deposits are not being made in our primary currency, doesn't mean good is not happening.
We could be pushing away positive reflective self-care and not even realize.
The philosophy in ReclaimMe! is that “all things are insights and a reflection of ourselves”, and we’re going to get into the habit of tracking, appreciating and acknowledging all forms of who we are.
There are two different things to track. 1. Reflective self-care that are positive acts demonstrated by others, 2. Self-Care what we see in and do for ourselves.
Reflective self-care is all forms of actions, complements, help, support encouragement, conversations, all things done by or interactions with others.
Self Care is how we listen, nurture and care for ourselves in thought, deed and action.
This activity shows the what you are putting out there, what you are attracting, and also to increase your level of gratitude when you’re feeling less than cared for, and want you are desiring. Don’t worry if all the things don’t happen on the same day, the more you get into the rhythm of noticing, the more you will see.

We have all done it, self criticised, bullied ourselves in the idea of making a different thought, action feeling. Often what we say to ourselves we wouldn't say to our best friend, but we seem to give ourselves permission to say the most hurtful, unproductive things.
Once we start to take stock of what and how we are talking to ourselves, we can start to make amends, and start to heal. After all, as children we are sponges, and believe what we are told by the adults or others around us. The more emotionally charged the words, the more ingrained it can become and deeper into our psyche, invading all parts of our life and interactions.
Take heart you are innocent and so not what we we often tell ourselves that we are; however, as adults now, it is not acceptable to beat ourselves up any more, It is causing harm, limiting you, interfering with your relationships, growth, destiny. Now is the time to reclaim you, to take stock of
