“A candle loses none of its light by lighting another candle.”

Author: Unknown

Amazing, isn’t it?
We aren’t lessened by what we give, we are greater for it.

Love, compassion, respect, patience…
When we take care of ourselves, we never run out of these,
yet so many ration these out as if they are about to.

Some feel like showing too much is a sign of weakness.
Others feel like they need to be careful,  because there is only so much to give.
One needs only talk to a mother of one child, who has another, to understand how love just grows. She will express feeling fear that surely she will not be able to love another child as much as the first, yet when the second child arrives, she finds that her capacity to love has exponentially increased.

How does that happen?
Simple.
These are not finite resources.

We each have an endless reserve, which continues to be refilled as we give and share of ourselves.
This possibility opens the door to some self-reflection this holiday season:

  • How can you give back?
  • Where can you share more of yourself?
    (Not to diminish your power and your strength, but to increase it!)

We could all benefit from allowing more of ourselves in to the world.
How are you going to share more of you?
When you show up to find and feel your joy, the emotional orgasm you have will actually empower others…
Everyone wins!

It’s true. The proverbial “they” say that physical health is also based on mental health.
Who says that?
Some of the most brilliant minds in mind-body medicine, holistic experts, spiritual leaders, doctors across the spectrum- in both Eastern and Western medicine… and the co-creators of EO!

It’s not a mystery that if you emotionally feel bad, the body starts to match up and you start to physically feel bad. On the other hand, people who love life, find and feel the joy, and intentionally seek out happiness, tend to feel better. They don’t get sick as much, and if they do get sick, they seem to get better faster.

We aren’t going to quote a lot of medical journals here- we’re actually going to ask you to just think about who you know, and what you have observed about how they move through life.
First, think  about the people you know who move through the world with a spotlight on everything wrong, broken, or missing. They complain, they whine, they perseverate on the mistakes. They relentlessly point out faults, shortcomings, and assign blame with a vengeance. It feels draining, toxic, or just plain bad to be around them. You have anyone in mind?
Well, how healthy are they?
Pretty sure the misery they look for in the world, is also taking root in their bodies. They’re sick, in pain, unhappy, ill, or just plain miserable all the time- and they like to share that angst with the world.

Now, think about the people you love to be around. The people who make you laugh, and who have energy that feels magnetic. The people who always have a kind word, a great story, an example of gratitude. They talk about what they love, who they love, and what is great about the world. They love their lives, and they love the people in it. They always find what is right, what is working, what is going well, and what is getting done. They radiate positive energy and you soak it up when you’re around them.
You have some people in mind?
How often to they get sick, complain, or express feeling negatively, badly, or ill?
Exactly.

We’ll say it one more time…
An emotional orgasm (or two, or three) a day, keeps the doctor away!
Get out there and get busy living life fulfilled!
😉


So, what is an EO, or “Emotional Orgasm?”
It is simply a “WOW” moment in life.
It’s when you are fully there, in that moment, and it feels A-MA-ZING!!

So, yes, an EO may be one of THE most incredible moments of your life, like achieving one of the most significant goals you have ever reached…
OR it could be just an every day kind of incredible moment that you want to soak up every second of, like walking on the beach watching your child make a sandcastle on a warm September afternoon.

An EO doesn’t mean that you have to reach a transformational state of peace and alignment first, then the EO shows up.  EO’s are pretty incredible because there are millions of them out there, just waiting in the wings for you to give them a head nod and allow them to bust on to the scene and give you and your life a big WOW!

You are still confused? Cynical? Let’s get a little more specific!
At work? EO’s are waiting.
At the gym? Yup. They’re there too.
How about on a busy Saturday doing errands? Ohhh…yes. They LOVE every day life. They’re there.
Even at your in-law’s house for meatloaf dinner? Wowzers- they have never missed a dinner with your in-law’s! It’s just too bad YOU seem to always miss THEM! They’re there.

EO’s abound in your life, desperately waiting for you to acknowledge them.
Today make sure you give them a shout out.
Pay attention, look for what’s right, and BE in the moment. That’s where the EO’s are waiting!
(And yes, they’re even out there in the rain! They just love inclement weather!)

Happy EO’s to you!

“Concentrate all your thoughts on the task at hand.
The sun’s rays do not burn until brought in to focus.”

Alexander Graham Bell

How many of us live our lives feeling:

* Scattered?
* Rushed?
* Stretched?
* Distracted?
* Overextended?
* Unfocused?

We are constantly “doing,” yet seem to get nothing done!

This state of distraction has become the new version of what it means to be successful.
You must be important if you have no time.
You must be really important if you have to multi-task all the time, like when you’re at your kids’ recital, running to the store, or at your great aunt’s 90th surprise party.

You are so important.
You have proof of this because at the end of every day you feel exhausted and frazzled.
You’re actually o.k. with this because you think this is just how it is.
You think this is called life, and you just need to accept it.

Well, living like this IS how it is, for a lot of people.
But, that’s not how it needs to be.

The truth is, we are less productive when we operate at that speed, and we actually get less done!

Something to think about:
Are you accomplishing what you want to accomplish in your days?
Yes? You are? WOW! Congratulations!
No? You’re not getting it all done?
Well, here’s a radical thought…Do less.

What does that mean?
Quite simply, when you are doing something, do ONLY that.
Give your full attention to the task at hand- and do nothing else.

It sounds scary, doesn’t it?
Just try it…
and see if life feels any easier, more manageable or more enjoyable.
You can always go back to you’re whirl tomorrow.
It will be there.

Remember, you are just like the sun’s rays…
and there is nothing more powerful than being “in focus.”

“You can’t do anything about the length of your life,
but you can do something about its width and depth.”

Evan Esar

Read this quote…
Read it again…
And then, read it one more time.

Great news, isn’t it?!
You don’t get to control it all, but you get to decide a lot…

How are you living?
How gracefully are you navigating your daily life,
knowing that you do not have the promise of forever…
but you do have right now?

What are you doing that brings you happiness?
When do you make time for you?
How are you living your dreams?
How are you spending your valuable time?
Who have you decided to share your life with,
and are they aware at how fortunate they are to be part of your world?

None of us know when we will go…
So doesn’t it make sense to pay attention to how we are living each day that we DO have?

Your life is an amazing journey…
make sure you are awake as you live it!

“The thoughts we choose to think
are the tools we use
to paint the canvas of our lives.”

Louise Hay

More and more we are shining a light on the significance of our thoughts,
and how those thoughts ultimately shape, guide and define our lives.

Who is in control of your thoughts?

Your partner? Your mother?
Kids? Friends?
The neighbors?
Mass media?
None of those sources of influence control your thoughts…
They may present opinions, perspectives or possibilities,
but none have control over you!

You control what you think aboutand how you think about it…
(whatever “it” might be!

There is tremendous power in realizing that YOU create your life experience!

Your time on this earth is defined by what you choose to focus on…
what you choose seek out…
and what you believe to be true.

When we are at the end of our time on this earth,
our “canvas” is complete
and it is a tribute to how we spent our days.

Something to think about:
What paint are you choosing to use?
Are your thoughts adding beauty and depth
to the great work of art
that you will call
your LIFE?

“The more you seek security, the less of it you have.
But, the more you seek opportunity,
the more likely it is that you will achieve
the security that you desire.”

Brian Tracy

I was thinking about how so many people are desperately grasping at attempts to secure promises about tomorrow- hoping against hope that if they line it all up correctly, tomorrow will be a guaranteed success.
If only things could be in order today,
things would still be in order tomorrow, right?

If only it was that simple.

Security is not something we can access externally, as much as we want it to be.
It’s not in a job, or a relationship, or even in the creation of your master, detailed plan of how your life will be.
Where do we get it then?
If it’s not in being prepared, where does it come from?

Security comes from knowing yourself,
knowing your strengths and your abilities,
and believing that you have the resources, the capacity and the power to take care of yourself.
Always.
If you look for it anywhere outside of yourself, you are never going to find it.

Isn’t that great news …?
You don’t need to keep looking for it, because you already have it.
You ARE it.

(That’s a pretty big EO, or emotional orgasm, isn’t it?)


Emotional Orgasm.
There’s really no other way to say it.
Trust us, we’ve tried, but this is it.
This is the only way to describe what we’re talking about.
EO is Emotional Orgasm.
That’s right – Orgasm.
Shocking? Perhaps.
Try it on. Sit with it. Think about it. Feel it.
Look forward to it!

What is “it?”
It’s naming the “wow” moments in life. It is total fulfillment in communication.
It’s a conversation you don’t want to end with a person you gravitate towards.
It’s the amazing feeling you have when you walk away smiling after an unexpected exchange that made your day.
It can happen with someone you never thought it would.
You can have one partner… or many, and paying it forward is not only safe, it’s satisfying!

The pleasure you feel stays with you.
It can literally change your life, and the change in you can stimulate change in others.
When you feel good, and focus on being present and engaged, it changes your world.
You see the change in your relationships, your friendships, your marriage, your life.

If you know what an EO IS, you also know what it ISN’T.
You know when you’ve had one and unfortunately when you haven’t.
You know what it’s like to walk away from a conversation, situation or event and feel empty, or disconnected. You feel drained and disappointed. You feel let down and wishing that there was something more than this.
Good news…there is!

Here’s what it comes down to…

An EO comes from a place of connection, synergy and unity in conversation.
It arises out of appreciation and respect for the experience of another, and is more likely to occur when both parties are highly present and engaged.
An EO takes place in a moment of fulfillment when you feel heard and your experience validated.

Finally… YES! Someone gets me! They feel this way too! They understand! They’re really listening!

It culminates with waves of intense pleasure that stimulate one’s entire being, resulting from purposeful feedback and an exchange that is rewarding on so many levels! Through the arising and releasing of thoughts and feelings, both recipients feel a sense of gratitude for such highly intense communication. When you’ve had one, you look for more, and suddenly, opportunities are everywhere!

The validation that life can be this good can be overwhelming.
You’re not going through the motions. Or sleepwalking through life. You’re not faking it anymore.

Your outlook is renewed; your dreams restored; your cup runneth over.
This is living!
Welcome to… EO!

“Each moment is a place you’ve never been.”

mark strand

Does this help?
Does this give the permission (and the freedom) to being open to learning?
Does this hold the potential, the promise,
and the possibility for growth?

If each moment is a place you have never been, could that make room in life for you to accept any imperfections or errors you might make?
How about making it acceptable to have a little uncertainty, or apprehension, in your world?

So often we fight and resist any situation that we do not have complete mastery,
for fear of failing…or, just for fear of not fully knowing.

It can be so beautiful to be in a place we have never been…
but, too often we aren’t open to the beauty because we are consumed with anxiety!

We need not be perfect.
Nowhere is it expected that we are to know it all, be it all, or have done it all.

All the world asks of us,
in our personal and our professional lives,
is to be fully present and show up…
Because if we are living in the moment,
in this moment,
we’re always going to get it right.
(That’s where an amazing emotional orgasm is waiting…!)
