at 12 12 '12 12:12 I was talking with several children

So, Is today's date auspicious?   I'm not sure it is, but if you have assigned a lot of importance and energy towards the date's repeating numbers, then probably yes it may be for you.

My neighbors are getting married, so why not on 12 12 12!   The original date was 12 16 12, but since they're having a small family wedding, and most of the family is in town, why not.  A friend of mine was thinking to become an ordained minister today, I will check with her and see if she did.  Today I was teaching coat of arms blazons at the 4-H co-op and didn't even notice the time until 12:30.  We were looking at a couple coat of arms that were created in the 1500's and discussing various regional(country) styles.  Did any of the heralds choose to register new coats of arms on 12 12 1212 or 1 5 1515 for sake of the date?   

What is something that will make today memorable in our lives?  For that matter what makes for a memorable day in life's grand scheme of connected actions and events?   Being very happy and making an especially positive connection with another person or animal I think is one way.
The day I went to Anneli's farm house way out in the central Finnish countryside and first met the Leonberger family of dogs.  I can see it like it was yesterday, and the one little girl puppy came over a few times and decided to hang and play with me.  Very memorable and consequently, I remember so many details of that day.  I was Elli's person as it turned out, even though technically she was my young daughter's dog.    My initial connection with Elli and my emotions made 4 25 02  a very auspicious day in my life.
Emotions create our reality along with our beliefs and experiences.  So what happens when a memorable day is due to a very negative connection or event and elicits strong emotions?  Sometimes we cannot process all of the emotion due to various possible reasons(socially unacceptable, physically unable, not knowing how...).  What happens to that overload of emotion?   For survival and daily functioning we tuck what we can't immediately handle away into the subconscious somewhere and manage to "get on with our lives".     Problem solved, not exactly.  

A number of years ago a former classmate of mine suggested I attend a seminar - he told me it was a parenting seminar.  I did and there I first heard of repressed emotions and emotional "baggage" that affect current daily life in very tangible ways.    So last year when I learned of  The  Emotion Code  method of releasing trapped emotions it intrigued me.   I am now studying to become a certified practitioner of the Emotion Code method, as I find this method is a relatively easy way to make current life more meaningful and less reactive(and less confusing in a -why did I do that, I didn't want to -way).   So watch for me to have the certification this next spring and meanwhile find out a bit more about The Emotion Code by reading the book by author Bradley Nelson ND.

hmmm The Official Christmas Season has begun

Its Advent according to my calendar.  If I remember correctly that means the beginning of Sundays in December before Christmas.  I remember learning about this after I'd lit several candles sitting on the coffee table in my friends' apartment to make the place feel cheerier when they got back from work.  Yep, one of the candles was an advent candle and I'd burned it down a bit during a weekday - oops.
So in the theme of the now official Christmas season, I went to the Handel's Messiah community sing-along today.

Today I also went to the Saltroom.  I spent some time thinking about a way I could bring benefit to the most people during December and through the holidays.  This season is filled with busyness, stress, and emotions.  Lots of emotions, sometimes all mixed up and sometimes just a few really intense emotions.  I came up with a 3 part plan that put into action will allow me to benefit quite a number of people this month.
Part one, locally offer a deep discount for folks who need to relax and de-stress in the Saltroom during December.
Part two, begin my training for The Emotion Code certification this week.  So, I will give 26 free sessions as part of my required practice prior to obtaining my certification.
Part three, I am going to make a gratitude list of everyone I need to tell that I truly appreciate their contribution to my life.  Then I'll attempt to contact them and just say thank you to them for being who they are.

If you need to relax and de-stress for an hour, then give me a call so we can set up a time for you to come by for a deeply discounted halotherapy session.
