Superwoman Gets Super Tired - Lynne Jensen

Superwoman spends her days running around meeting and talking with people.

As always, she is so busy helping everyone else that she puts herself last. At the end of her day Superwoman feels drained.

Does Superwoman have characteristics that you might find in yourself?
How much energy do you have at the end of your day?

We all know that we need to take good care of ourselves, but slowing down
even for five minutes can often feel impossible. I know, I am a doer, and I
always want to finish my task before I take the time to take care of myself. It
has taken me most of my life to realize the importance of self-care.

Here are some facts:

According to research from the HeartMath Institue, stress causes a cascade of
over 1500 biological changes in within your body. Stressful emotions like
anger, frustration or feelings of anxiety drain your energy and diminish your
performance. Therefore you are less efficient at the task you want to get done.
Its summer now, all too us are engaged in activities like sports with our kids,
vacation trips, yard work, or gatherings with friends. All of this is fun, but it can
also increase your stress. The good news, you can change this.

You don’t have to be Superwoman or Superman.

What would happen if you made self-care a non-negotiable part of your life?
Again some facts: Renewing emotions like care, courage and appreciation also
cause1500 biological changes in your system. These emotions, however,
reenergize your body and offset your energy drain. Among your gains are more
resilience, improved problem solving, and increased access to your intuition and

Returning to a heart connection - by Lynne Jensen

March 11, 2016

“The place to improve the world is first in one’s own heart and
head and hands, and work outward from there.” – Robert Pirsig

Do you ever have those moments when you are being pulled in many
directions? There are so many demands and things to get done it feels
overwhelming. You try to problem solve but the ideas just keep going
round and round in your head and you feel like you are spinning on a
“hamster wheel.” We have all had that experience. It can make us feel
isolated and alone. We often don’t know what steps to take next.
My husband worked 12 hours a day 6-7 days per week for over 30 years.
That in itself can feel like running on a “hamster wheel.” Recently he took
the steps to retire from his job. We spent most of the month of February
traveling on his celebratory trip up the coast of California and Oregon.
There were many breath-taking experiences on that trip. One evening we
decided to stop on the shore of the Monterey Peninsula to watch the sunset
over the ocean. We stood upon a cliff where you could hear the loud break
of each wave as it hit the rocks along the shore. The tide kept shifting, so
the size of wave ebbed and flowed. Some waves went as high as 20 feet
before breaking, reminding me yet again of how little control we have over
the power of nature.
Taking a break from everyday life like this is really important as it helps us
connect with our inner joy - a true heart feeling. Journaling about those
experiences can give us a storehouse of inner heart memories. Later, when
we find ourselves stressed and running on the “hamster wheel,” we have a
list of experiences we can use to take a “time out” and return to a heart

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched... but are felt in the heart." - Helen Keller

In your everyday world, how do you tap into that heart-felt feeling?
What are you passionate about?
I am first and foremost an educator. I am passionate about the joy of discovery. For example, last summer, while in my yard I saw a large bird fly across my path. It landed in a nearby tree and I saw it clearly eating its prey. It looked owl-like but was amber colored instead of grey and had a very small hawk-like head. Excitedly I pulled out my bird book and discovered a raptor called the “Northern Harrier.” Learning about this bird brought me joy. It was new to me and another
large raptor I didn’t know about. When was the last time you felt your passion? What was it about? Did you feel it in your heart?

When I asked this question to a massage therapist friend, he said, “I have the ability as a massage therapist, to help people heal through their bodies. My passion is about using my work to help facilitate that healing process.” He told me about a list of inspiring emotional words he wrote to place on his door. He hopes these words will add to his clients healing by helping them to shift from the head to the heart. He says, “We spend so much time in our heads, if I can get people to shift their focus even for an hour it makes me happy.”

Relationships with people, nature and animals give us many gifts. It is
through these interactions that we experience, intimacy, joy,
compassion and of course, love.
In the month of “Heart” month of February take a look around and ask
yourself, “What beautiful things are felt in my heart?” “Can I bring that
feeling to those I connect with?”

New Year Motivation - Lynne Jensen

Whether you think you can or you think you can’t - You’re right  – Henry Ford

At this time of year many of us make New Years Resolutions, but as you may know, we are not very good at keeping them.  In fact, 90% of resolutions are broken within the first month.  You want to make the changes but the old habits are difficult to break. It is so frustrating when you have all the best intentions but still find yourself on that old worn path. This year I would like to see you make those changes.


First, be compassionate with yourself.  Know that it is natural to default back to old habits, especially under the stress of change. Know that you are enough just as you are and you are worth the work it takes.  


Here’s a beginning step.  Instead of a complete make-over, just choose one thing to tweak. Then set a series of a small goals that are more easily achievable and trackable.


Let’s look at weight loss. A small goal might be losing 5 pounds per month. In starting your that goal the first part is easy.  Some of the reasons people overeat are anger, boredom, depression and loneliness.  These emotions get in the way making dieting difficult and the old I can’t,” voices get louder.  Know that that’s the old message.


Change always comes from within.  You can move away from those negative inner voices and gain a new perspective by practicing heart balance. Set yourself up for success. Reframe the I can’t” to I can”.


 One of the challenges when changing emotional habits is that the emotions and the stress reaction that occurs with them hijack the rational part of your brain. I have often talked about how making a change involves letting go of old habits that didn’t serve you. Shifting to heart balance brings an inner calmness that stops the stress and allows the new habit to become second nature.





Balancing your stress and managing your reactions to emotional eating is a pattern that is breakable. Becoming heart-balanced gives you the tools to empower yourself to make behavioral changes.  For example, the wisdom of your heart guides you to find ways to make diet choices that keep you on track.


 Here is a place I can help.  Working with a coach can be invaluable in keeping you accountable, and in bringing you perspectives you wouldn’t necessarily get on your own.  I will partner with you in keeping to your goals. My clients have told me that the work we do together can be transformative and has really helped them to break old unwanted patterns.


If any of this resonates with you, let’s begin the process by contacting me for a consult.


So the best of luck on a new transformative 2016.

Nez Ezrok - Professional on

Internationally acclaimed Perth singer, songwriter and life coach, Nez Erok has brought home many prestigious awards, as well as breaking chart records in the US, with her incredibly haunting ballad and music video, Beautiful.

Nez was interviewed on CNN Atlanta in 2014 about how she healed from abuse and turned her experience around to help others do the same. You can watch the the interview here:

Drawing upon her own dark memories of domestic violence, Nez has transformed her painful experience into something beautiful by creating a song, and becoming a healer for others so that she can ‘give hope and light’ to those who may be suffering some form of hardship.

“The powerlessness I felt when growing up was used as a catalyst to find my voice,” Nez said of her own personal struggle. “Writing the song required me going to a dark and vulnerable place. The finished work, which took six months to complete, was a wonderful voyage of healing toward optimism and self-belief.”

Beautiful has won the following awards both locally and overseas: 2013 GOLD WINNER: Best film clip cinematography (WA) 2013 GOLD WINNER: Best film clip cinematography (SA) 2014 BEST MUSIC VIDEO: PVIFF, Atlanta, USA 2014 BEST MUSIC VIDEO: UMFF, Atlanta, USA 2014 BEST MUSIC VIDEO: Silent River Film Festival, California, USA 2014 SONG OF SUBSTANCE: Music Malt Online 2014 Global Music Awards Winner, California, USA 2014 Oregon International Film Awards, USA. 2015 Best music video: The Akademia Music Awards,California, USA 2015 Silver Palm award: Mexico International Film Festival, Mexico City, Mexico
