2017 Tapping Circle Dates

 - by lucie

Here we are! This is yet another year of monthly tapping circles! In fact, January 2017 marks the 10-year anniversary of the Boston EFT Meetup group. I can’t believe it’s been ten years! I couldn’t be more proud and excited about it, not only because it is a major accomplishment, but also because of what it represents. Tapping circles bring EFT to the community, to rich and poor alike, it multiplies healing and makes the biggest dent into healing the collective subconscious we all are immersed in. But a tapping circle would be meaningless without the people who show up and participate in it. Thank you to all of you (you know who you are)!

Turning a New Leaf

 - by lucie

New Year’s Eve is one of my favorite holidays. I love the idea of taking stock of the past year. I make a point of remembering the joys and the growth I experienced, and I look at my goals and intentions and see how well I have achieved them. Sometimes, just setting an intention for the year ahead, like I’ve done in the past years, has given an arch and an orientation to my life. Always, it’s allowed me to expand in a new direction. And noticing when the movement was smooth and when it was more difficult when I look back on my year in December, gives me the chance to understand what wasn’t working and why.
Last year, I wanted more fun and ease in my life. And I’m happy to report that by and large, I’ve had much more fun and things were pretty easy if you take into account the higher level of difficulty I committed to when I signed up for grad school and parenthood simultaneously, all the while working in my private practice. And all the times that fun and ease were more scarce, I noticed it was mostly because I was hard on myself and not reaching out enough to my support network. Which is why I decided that, in 2015, my intention would be set on:

Self-compassion and Connection

Do you have a New Year’s Intention? Does it support your goals and resolution? If you need help finding what intention would take your life to the next level this year, don’t hesitate to reach out. A trained outside eye might help you see through the fog.

New late policy:

Please arrive promptly. Doors are open starting at 1:45 and late arrivals will be allowed until 2:10. After 2:10, we’ll start the circle and because it is my duty to maintain a safe and smooth process for everyone, and to avoid disruptions – and a late arrival can be a tremendous disruption – I will close the doors and the circle to outsiders.

Forcing My Kids to Kiss Adults (When They Don’t Feel Like It) Isn’t About Politeness Anymore

 - by lucie

As a victim of assault myself and a child who grew up more or less coerced into kissing every adult who demanded it, I know first-hand I did learn it’s inappropriate to refuse to be physical or polite with people who expect it from you. It has absolutely led to me being overly nice with people who were stepping all over my boundaries. I’m now 35, still trying to grapple with boundaries. So I urge you to read this wonderful article!

She’s Growing So Fast!

 - by lucie

I think of my baby everyday all day long.

I sleep I think of my baby.

I eat I think of my baby.

I leave the house I think of my baby.

I see clients I think of my baby too. Read this article »

Get a Grip!

 - by lucie

Having a kid will magnify the difficulties you have in your life! And setting things straight – getting a grip as some would say – will prove herculean. Almost impossible. So difficult you’ll think it can’t be done.

But don’t let this stop you! A lot of people will stay with the overwhelm, resigned that this is the way things are from now on. And I can’t blame them! I’ve struggled with my own share of baby-related hurdles. I realized that – unbeknownst to me – what I thought of as basic hygiene, like showers and shampoos, probably wasn’t all that important.

New Year’s Eve or the Power of Intention

 - by lucie

I love New Year’s Eve!

Whether it’s to turn the page on a difficult or a fantastic year, NYE has always allowed me to wrap up, take stock, set intentions and look forward to a whole new year.

Yesterday, as I was catching the parade in Boston, I was filled with gratitude! 2013 was ripe with gifts, professionally but most notably on the personal level. In August, I finally settled into a home in a perfect location, welcomed my daughter into the world and picked up a childhood dream were I had left it 23 years prior. My eyes got misty as I was counting my blessings. Read this article »

Mandatory Holiday Cheer – Why It’s not Always a Good Idea

 - by lucie

This past week, I’ve been increasingly aware of the pressure to be merry. From many sides I’ve encountered variations of this:

- After reading a poignant article written by a person who’s suffered years of chronic pain that hasn’t gone away in spite of all the different “solutions” that were tried and how every single time a new hope was formed (maybe this will be the right tool to make the pain disappear) and how invariably the hopes were crushed harder and harder every time; after reading this article, then, a healer I know is compelled to reach out and offer a free session – yet another technique holding the same promise and the potential for the same disappointment if not despair.

Trust Your Instincts

 - by lucie

You’ve probably heard a million times from all sorts of sources that you need to trust your instincts. It’s become a catch-all phrase that’s been heralded as the creme de la creme in decision-making.

The problem? What do instincts feel or look like?

I haven’t always been intuitive and tuned into my body’s wisdom, so I definitely relate to this question. I remember being incredibly frustrated by all the alternative healing practitioners bragging about how they feel energy moving inside their body and also – gasp – inside their patients’ bodies. Then I had a breakthrough and felt that too. Read this article »
