When Good Change is Scary, Keep Going

"You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore." - Andre Gide.

One of the most transformational experiences of my life was sailing out to the open ocean and losing sight of the shore for the first time, knowing I'd see land two weeks later. This was pre-internet connections! Watch if you need a trust the process pep talk, a few new ideas to understand your own change process (pain, discomfort, fear, muck), and encouragement for a loving container in the process.

Done Is Better Than Perfect (Imperfect Steps Lead to Results and Refinement)

Hi There!  It's Rhea here!  Whew!  I have been go-fight-win in getting us ready to launch the registration for the My Love Bomb Program and the Prospective Facilitator's Path and as such I have missed connecting to you all for a few weeks!

I'm back and I'm excited to be heading into the next steps towards getting to connect with all of you more in person.  I've got the You Matter International Facebook Group opened up and slowly growing as we head into July where I'll be launching an Open Hearted Life Challenge for us all to do together.

Meanwhile, here we are.  Done is Better Than Perfect.  I'm not sure if it's my life experience, or becoming a mommy, but embracing this principle has become liberating on so many levels.  Dropping the expectation of self-perfection, letting go of that inner critic's grip, and therefore also becoming way easier on those in my life, has been life changing.  It enhances my relationship with myself, has exploded my soul fulfilling relationships within my life, and is a huge source of happiness and love magic inside of my family.

Have a look!

Love,

Dr. Rhea 

Gamechanger Design: Quick Fix or Delayed Gratification?

If you are like me, you have definitely gotten into going for quick fixes, in fact, the more urgent the desire for change often means the higher desire for a quick fix/magic bullet.  The reality I have learned (the hard way) over time is that most of the time, if something seems to good to be true, it often is.  So, what is the alternative?  Focusing instead on the feel good of knowing you are taking small but steady steps, in the right direction, so that a year from now you can look back and say, wow, that was crazy-effective.  Almost like a magic bullet :)

What are your game changers for 2017?

Hi There, it's Rhea here.  Happy 2017!  

This message is inspired by the time that I took with my husband to look at 2016 and celebrate our favorite moments.  What I didn't expect, is that as we looked at the growth, change, highlights, and evolutions that occurred for us on personal levels and as a family we realized that there were these "game changer" moments that occurred through a combination of our hope, faith, and courage.

We tried new things, and those new things led to physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing and growth.

I know that it can take a lot of hope, change, and courage to take a step out to try to make improvements, especially the longer challenges have been going on.

This conversation is a boost to encourage you to go for it with mapping out your dreams so that you can look back on 2017 and see that you stepped out and created the game changers to build the vision you dream of.

In celebration of the power of game changers, I'm also making Love Bomb free for the month of January when you sign up on the home page of this site right here:

After Winter Will Come Spring, Part 2

Hi There,

Rhea here with a continuation on a theme of looking at the patterns of the universe to bring about more comfort and clarity to our every day lives.  It is so easy to get stuck, scattered and lost in the microcosm of life's events with the myriad flavors of emotions brought about.  Especially in the midst of winter and holiday time.

In Part 2 I bring us from looking at the rhythmic nature of the seasons and their effect on our lives and bodies, and we look at how we can participate in bringing about, well, an awesome spring.

It's about nourishment.  Nourishment physically, emotionally, and that deep deep soul stirring nourishment.  

You can watch listen right here:

Is it all resonating deeply?  Perhaps you are ready for more.  The My Love Bomb Program, a full two month immersion into building your body and life to reflect love, is starting in February of 2017 and registration is now open for participants, and, future facilitators.

Big Love!

Chaos is Transformation

Have you ever felt like you landed on a plateau of healing, took a deep breath and said, "thank god that is over with" only to find yourself catapulted into the next feeling of life chaos?

Well, in this podcast I chat about the phenomenon of chaos, or, life foundation change, as a part of the transformation growth process.

Of course, life chaos does not always mean growth process, it can simply mean chaotic habits, but it can also be a sign when life moves from stable to chaotic to stable to chaotic that there is growth happening, or, in other words, the natural process of change and evolution.

I feel we are experiencing this both globally and individually, and, find it valuable, healing, harmonizing, and supportive to move out of isolation and into community as we move through this time both as a humanity and as individuals.

Take a listen and, if you feel called to participate with me as a leader in this evolution, I would love to talk!  You can email me at lovebombthemovie@gmail.com to see if becoming a My Love Bomb Facilitator in 2017 might be your next Love Bomb.

Hi!  This is one video in a series of videos that were recorded live on Facebook giving tips and ideas inspired by benefits of the My Love Bomb Program.  Here I talk about that process we go through from the broken down moments of our lives, through healing, into the next steps called broken open.  

This is perfect for someone needing a little bit of a hug on the path of healing and life transformation.

This Love Bombers podcast conversation with Tiffany landed quite a bit on her personal journey as a love bomber discovering what her gifts are to give to life.  I was particularly captivated by the change of course that she went through from path as lawyer to path as therapist.  She continues to gather tools to contribute to people finding their empowered selves through her instruction as a Dailey Method barre fitness instructor, and now, through the My Love Bomb Program as a facilitator.

This is a wonderful conversation for those who might be struggling with the gift of self permission to change direction, honoring the voice within.

More on Tiffany:

Tiffany Lynn Iverson attended graduate school at University of San Francisco studying Counseling Psychology.  She has been a California Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern for the past 4 years, recently completing 3000 hours toward licensure, and a fitness instructor at The Dailey Method Napa barre studio for just under 3 years.  Tiffany's dedication to help people achieve their mental health and physical fitness goals allow her to combine passions that help bridge mind and body synchronicity.  She came to The My Love Bomb Program in the Spring of 2016 with a readiness to take herself and her career to the next level, and  got so much out of the program that she decided to become a My Love Bomb Program Facilitator.

Get out There and Serve, Watch Your Life Change, with Tiffany Johnson

Last week's podcast broad me to laughter, and this week's brought me to tears.  It's essentially like having a service trip experience right from my home as the depth and breadth of human experience through story sweeps through my heart.

Tiffany Johnson shares about her journey from her career as a professional singer and performer to a volunteer and eventually full time employee of Soles4Souls.  Her story is rich in what happens when we're willing to listen to the innate calling of our soul, as well as the wisdom of what life itself is telling us through the circumstances that point us in a particular direction.

Speaking to her was so poignant for and she shares a story of a woman's life that touched her deeply in Honduras.  She brought me to tears, both in the way that her relationship with the woman was able to ultimately help her, and the plight of so many women around the world who suffer for opportunities like we have so readily available to us in the United States with birth control options as well as the support needed in the case of unwanted pregnancies that are out of the control of the women themselves.  You will hear us talk about how this woman chose tubal ligation that was being offered to her in the village, but what you won't hear is why this is so important.  After we finished our conversation in record mode I brought up a story about a woman I have cared for in poverty that needed this option due to rape that was occurring.  This is when she shared that the woman in her story needed this option because her husband was hiding her birth control and so she kept getting unwanted pregnancies.  

This conversation reminds me of the absolute heart wrenching at times complexity of the service that we do and what happens when we are willing to open our eyes to the depth of challenges of those around us.  It is also the power of being willing to do so, as, we might not have the solution, but we might know someone who does.  Truly, deeply, we never know how far reaching something we say or do for another person will ultimately change their lives.

She also reminds me of simply how powerful it is to answer the calling to help right now, because one hand held out leads to seeing more, which leads to more questions, which leads to more answers and the ability to connect people to the solutions that can and do exist.

Together we are the web, the tribe, that uplifts life.  It is painful at times to be willing to see, but it is also the only way to be fully alive.

Thank you Tiffany, the relationship is just beginning.
