    Effect on Emotions
    It helped me be more self-compassionate, less anxious, more focused, and more measured. So
    So I think it helped me create those retreats or those air pockets in my life that I need. Because I tend to just be an over worker, I love what I do.  There's a lot of need in the world. So it helped me be more present with myself and not let my mind be a runaway train. 

    Thoughts on Breathing
    Above all, I love the box breathing method. So
    It's a nice four-count holding and then releasing. So
    The reason I like it so much is that it's sustainable because sometimes if I make things too grand and too complex, I might stay with it for a while, but then fall off track. So

    Bullying Story
    I think it was very commonplace, like in middle school, I was very keenly aware of the bullying that was happening. So
    I was that loud person that would stand up if I saw someone being hurt.
    Understanding the impact on one's life when these things happen, and how to help teach social-emotional skills and kindness are things that weren't necessarily present on the school bus in the 1980s. So
    Therefore, mindfulness would have helped me probably be a little bit more self-compassionate, and it would have helped me deal with that override of anxiety and fear that I was doing in those moments. So
    I love the exercise of thinking like, what would your past self say to yourself? Or what would you want your future self to say to the now. If I could look back I would say to myself, this is going to help you develop your empathy, this is going to help you be more mindful in how you show up and you contribute to the world.
    Don't internalize the messages of the meanness of the people, doing this kind of bullying that doesn't define you.  Worth The Risk

    Effect on Emotions
    My basic emotion now is nothing but bliss.
    Mindfulness has taken away everything else and there have been stages of that taking away where I thought I was over anger completely.
    I found out I wasn't okay. But any emotion that does arise, that is not bliss. I look at it, I honor it.  Empty Into Fullness

    Thoughts on Breathing
    Breathing means expansion to me. It means taking in God's divine breath consciously and moving it through my body and I do breathing exercises every morning.
    Everybody needs to reconnect with their ability to deep breathe abdomen brief, not a shallow breeze and that's not hard to do. Empty Into Fullness

    Bullying Story
    I was bullied a lot as a child, I was really small as a child and I went to military school, which was not usual. So I was the object of a lot of bullying in my neighborhood.
    I wrote one story where a little boy has a friend, and the friend is really a bully. And eventually says to this little boy, well, I'm not afraid of anything. Suddenly, he finds himself being transported magically, by bliss, Barry bears a magical heart into the body of a mouse.
    This is the bully now that's in the body of a mouse, and he finds himself in the field, and he doesn't know what's going on. But he decided to better make the best out of being in a mouse body. Empty Into Fullness
    He learns about being a mouse in the daytime. And then at dusk, one night, he needs the little mouse, that's a night mouse. And this night mouse cones him into staying out past his daytime hours and playing with her and he knows nothing about the night.
    He doesn't know about owls. He knows about the Hawks in the daytime, and the snakes and everything, but is not aware of what in the night. So he ends up getting picked up by an owl and realizing there are some things in the world that will scare him. So that's how he learns not to scare other people and to not be a bully. Empty Into Fullness

    Effect on Emotions
    I think emotions are something that most folks are afraid of.
    When I was younger, going through a lot of trauma, we were taught to hide our emotions, to stuff our emotions, to suppress our emotions, to the point where we were numb.
    I had to learn and relearn how to feel my emotions and differentiate between sadness and anger, to have the allowance, to feel those emotions deeply, and to allow them to have a voice and to express them in a healthy way.
    Emotions are our compass to let us know where we are in life and whether we need to course-correct. They're actually our body and soul's way of getting in touch with us

    Thoughts on Breathing
    Breathing is such a wonderful, transformational tool. It really helps us to get connected to our breath. It's free.
    Most of us do not breathe properly. We breathe up here, like very shallow. We do not do belly breath and the belly breath is just so relaxing.
    Watch a baby breathe, they make nice, deep breaths, and it's a way to calm your emotions and it's also very healing.
    So if we have any blocks or any trauma stuck in our bodies, even from previous lifetimes, it really helps to relieve and to free ourselves from those blocks and in our energy field so that we can really live in the present moment and be who we really are, which is why we're here.

    Bullying Story
    When I was eight years old, I came here from Italy and I didn't know the language.
    I went to Catholic school and as children are, I was made fun of,  teased, and, laughed at because I didn't understand the language. It was very difficult for me to express myself.
    I just remember crying one day, we were having a test, and some, I don't even know who it was took my pencils, and I couldn't communicate. I just sat there and just cried. The nun was like, where are your pencils, and I couldn't even articulate that I had them, but somebody took it, and I couldn't even say that, and I would just go home crying.
    Being a mother of two, I watched my children being bullied on the bus, being bullied at school. They used to knock my son's books on the floor, and you would have to pick them up.
    As a parent, you just want to protect your child, you don't want them to ever go through that.
    To me, bullying is power over somebody so that you feel better and I think that's just children's way of empowering themselves.
    The book, Once Upon A thought is a children's book. It's like, if everyone knew who they really were, then you wouldn't have to ever bully anyone. Because you know that you are special, you know that you are unique. Once Upon A Thought
    There is nobody like me, and there's no one like you and there's no one like them. It's not necessary to bully to get that power from somebody else, because you have that power within you. Once Upon A Thought

    Dad, Father, A Treasured Honor

    Dad, Father, A Treasured Honor

    Dad, Father, A Treasured Honor is my topic for today, since it is Father's Day here in Canada. I have put together 7 suggestions that can help you on your quest to being a good father. As a father, I have given a lot of thought and effort into being as good a father as possible. I'm grateful to have a son who shows strong traits of mindfulness, respect, consideration, and generosity. My father was also a man who gave me space and wise advice when I asked for it.

    Listen & Subscribe on:

    iTunes / Stitcher / Podbean / Overcast / Spotify
    Here are 7 tips that will help you be a good father:

    1/ Listen
    Being a good father is about being a good listener. This is something I constantly work on with my son and also with people I teach and work with. Listen to the feedback that people provide you. It is often hidden or disguised, but if you are open to hear it, you will begin to notice.

    2/ Be A Good Role-model
    Live your best life and remember to walk the walk and talk the talk. If you're going to do a certain thing in your life or behave in a certain way, then make sure that you're okay with your child doing that same thing. They are watching you and are aware of what you do. If you do something and you are giving the impression that you're okay with this particular action, then that speaks way louder than words.

    3/ Emotions
    Many people push emotions aside, including me. There have been times in my life when I was not willing or able to face my emotions. Be aware of your emotions, and don’t be afraid to share them. Once you're aware of your own emotions, then you can handle them in a more healthy way. You can decide to embrace them, share them, or keep them to yourself. The following can help you manage your emotions: meditation, self-hypnosis, running, swimming, or being out in nature.

    4/ Give Space
    It is important to give space to our children so they can learn and grow in a natural way. This is one thing that my father was very good at; he gave me space to grow. He was not one of those people who smothered their children, rather he gave me space to learn and grow on my own. It takes courage and discipline to step back and give your child space but I highly recommend it.

    5/ Be Open and Flexible
    As much as you can, be open and flexible with your children. As parents, we have our own ideas about how things should be and sometimes we can be too controlling. Guide your children in what they do and at the same time, be as open and flexible as you possibly can. As you become more open, I believe you will begin to feel the honor of being a father, and therefore you'll understand the reason I entitled this episode, Dad, Father, A Treasured Honor.

    6/ Give Advice When Asked
    If you follow the above suggestions, your child will be more likely to ask you for advice. Take the time to advise in a thoughtful way, using stories and examples to help explain your points.

    7/ Be Consistent and Grounded
    If you practice mindfulness, you are most likely a consistent and grounded person. I'm extremely proud of being the father of my son, Ben. I learn a tremendous amount from him due to the fact that he is a mindful and wise person. My father passed away in 2019 and I'm grateful to have had him as my father because he gave me space to learn and grow. He also gave me wise advice at various time, including advice to date my wife before we went out for the first time. I've been married to her for over twenty years now, so I’m grateful for the advice given to me by my dad.

    Effect on Emotions
    When I was younger, and when I was really in survival mode, when emotions came up, I acted on impulse. Oftentimes, I acted out against myself, I would drink too much or I would just do something reckless.
    Over the years, I've learned that emotions are information. Emotions are literally energy in motion and when you allow that emotion to move through you, and you allow yourself to be aware of it, you can watch what happens without judgment without judging yourself for Why am I feeling angry? Or why am I feeling sad? Or why am I getting so upset about this, and you recognize it as a process that has to happen.
    You allow it to happen, which means the energy doesn't build up in your body as something harmful. At the same time, you're getting that message when you're open to observing that emotion, you can actually start to understand what is this telling me about the situation that I'm in? You Attract What You Are.

    Thoughts on Breathing
    Breathing is one of those things that if we don't pay attention to, can really mess with.
    It can kind of be the catalyst for us to feel anxious.
    So if we're going about our day, and we're just so caught up in everything that we're doing, and we're externally focused, our breathing starts to get really shallow. That can actually be a biological signal to our bodies, that we're in anxiety mode, and that will trigger a panic attack.
    However, if you pay attention to your breathing, and you allow yourself to breathe fully into your chest into your belly and let the breath go throughout your body, you will actually subdue those biochemical processes that you don't want to happen. Like an anxiety attack. You Attract What You Are.

    Bullying Story
    When I was in fourth grade, I changed schools. Because I was being bullied at my old school. You Attract What You Are.
    There's this daughter of a teacher there, for some reason, I just totally rubbed her the wrong way. So she came after me. And because her mom was a teacher, I ended up having to leave the school. You Attract What You Are.
    When I went to my new school, I became a bully. I was so angry and lonely. I didn't know anybody.  I've always been tall. So I was taller than a lot of the boys. And I guess I was strong. I was like a scrawny kid. But I guess I was physically strong. And so I would assert my strength.
    Looking back on it, I was trying to demonstrate, “don't mess with me”. But yeah, I can protect myself and I remember there was one boy in particular, who I would pick on, and we're actually really good friends until today. But I would grab his backpack and swing him around.
    I had a teacher who called me into the classroom one day, and she goes, You are a bully.  I got so angry at that because I don't like bullies. And I was like, I'm not a bully. And she pointed out what I was doing.
    Of course, I was in fourth grade. So I didn't fully ha

    Effect on Emotions
    So when I get upset, I ask myself, Why are you upset? What is triggering me? What's hurting me?
    In conclusion, I try to delve into that subconscious a little bit more and see what's brought up in me that is making me react the way I'm reacting.
    Therefore, every time I get upset that way and also the joyful moments, I think I blow them up even bigger than they already are.
    Similarly, I see them as such precious jewels, I make them louder in my life than the hard times in the struggles. So

    Thoughts on Breathing
    Breathing is very important.
    Yoga taught me how to breathe properly, it brings you into your body.
    So it is very important to be grounded in your body for the fight/flight and for anxiety, to bring yourself back to the present moment and nurture yourself.

    Bullying Story
    My father worked for General Electric so as he climbed the corporate ladder, we traveled every two years. We are constantly moving. As a result, we would transfer into a new school district. So
    So I would be that quiet little redheaded girl in the corner, not saying a word and trying to just melt into the furniture and the fabric of the place, I didn't want to be recognized at all. certainly
    I was an easy target for bullies. consequently
    When I was in kindergarten, a boy in the fourth grade, chased and hit me over the head with his lunchbox as I was running home up the hill.
    In other words, there's physical bullying, and emotional bullying.
    For instance, when picking teams, I was one of the last kids to be picked because nobody knew who I was.
    But I have to give Louisville a lot of credit because it was the first place where the people were very welcoming. So Above all
