Every game has its set of rules, success strategies, and skill sets. Your mastery of the game increases your odds of winning and makes playing fun.
No place is this more important than in the game of life.
At Holistic MindBody Healing, our goal is to help you master your wellness and personal life games so you can create a healthier, happier life on your own terms.
With a unique combination of wellness training, life coaching and heart-based healing methods, Val inspires individuals and groups to engage and develop the self-awareness, knowledge and skills you need to maximize your potential to heal and create the health and happiness you desire, on purpose.
Each of these keys is powerful in and of itself. When consistently applied together, then as Aristotle says, The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
There is a synergy created that opens doors to achieve what has previously felt 'impossible' for you.
A primary focus at Holistic MindBody Healing is education.
One of my lifelong passions and strengths is to gain wisdom, incorporate it into my life, and share it with others so they can experience the same benefits.
On this quest, I have devoted great amounts of time and money learning from spiritual teachers and personal growth and wellness experts.
My mission is to identify common sense, leading-edge information and strategies, and integrate them into a variety of learning opportunities and programs that work for you. When applied correctly, not only will you benefit, but you are likely to positively impact the lives of others as well.
In addition to the wealth of content freely offered on this site and in the Members Area, you can learn more about the principles and practices of creating a holistic wellness and life plan from Val through a variey of educational opportunities:
To master the game of life, you need a certain mindset.
In the past 10 years of client work, I have discovered that most people wear 'blinders' in how they approach their health and their lives in general.
Instead of looking for and learning best practices, they continue in the same habits acquired from family, peers, and 'authority figures'. Therefore, they continue to get about the same results.
Albert Einstein said, The current problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which they were created.
The bottom line of success hinges on winning your inner game. You have to consistently follow through with chosen action steps once you are clear about your game. And this is where we often meet with resistance manifesting as procrastination, excuses, 'forgetting', etc. It feels like we are downright sabotaging ourselves.
Val is skilled using a variety of processes that can help you move through your fear and resistance. These processes incorporate easily into your coaching sessions when needed.
Here's a real life example.One of my clients sought my help after realizing that she 'lost herself' and had her life on hold for years while she mourned the loss of her daughter and fretted over the future of her grandchildren. As she awakened to the reality that she was stuck, and her life was slipping by, her thoughts turned to, "Now it's time for me, it's all about me." She felt conflicted about this. During a visualization process, she came to realize that when she took care of herself and embraced life fully on her own terms, she was naturally brimming over with plenty of herself to give to others as well.
If you are tired of struggling, small gains and wasted efforts, it's time to change your game. A change of strategy can help you achieve results with greater ease and speed. Strategy is your overall plan for achieving your goal, or winning your game.
Val's mentoring and coaching focuses on practical, doable strategies you can apply that will help you create the results you are looking for.
Let me share an example from my own life. I used to be filled with resentment about some situations in my past. I would 'stew' and hold a grudge. Of course this spilled over into my relationships and life patterns. This pattern, or 'strategy', for reliving the past was creating an environment of negativity within and around myself in the present. Not what I wanted.
That began to change as I took action using a new energy healing strategy for releasing negative feelings. Ultimately, my life and relationships transformed. Yes, there were bumps and challenges along the way, but I learned valuable skills, strategies and habits that ultimately helped me heal and 'win my game'.
Most of us benefit greatly when supported in our quest for a healthy, happy life. Even though support can make the difference between success and failure, it is often a key we mistakenly try to do without.
As your mentor and coach, Val will provide you with the support you need to win your game.
This support comes in many forms. Here are a few examples:
Integration of mind body spirit is a well-known concept in the holistic wellness movement. It's foundational in our approach to living and enjoying a healthy life. Al tough there are other levels of integration, this one is important in how you approach the goals in your wellness and life game.
This integration consists of three attributes:
When you create from this space of integration, you experience flow. Making and following through with decisions is easier and more enjoyable. You deepen your sense of inner awareness and learn to tap into your connection with your heart, or spirit.
When these attributes are out of balance, you may feel stuck, overwhelmed, and confused. But in this space of integrated flow you find and gain the wisdom, strength, love, and peace that is already within you.
