Testimonials
  
"Just wanted to wish you a Happy New Year and let you know that YES I am very happy with your past readings.

When we met you told me I would have a new job by the end of the year, and YES before the end of December, I have a new opportunity.  I begin on Tuesday and they are most happy with "ME" - who I am - my personality and out going nature... Personally I feel stronger and more content and I am ready to move forward leaving the negative behind...
 
Again, thanks for all the positive energy."

Brain Power!
 
Brain Power... Did you know that when an individual meditates they are actually exercising their brain?  Meditation is like cardio for your brain.  Meditating keeps your brain healthy and strong, says a recent study out of UCLA.  The study took a group of individuals who meditated on a regular basis and found that they had a larger number of white-matter fibers which made their brains larger and, therefore, better equipped to combat age related atrophy.

At this time of year many of us are thinking about how we can avoid that nasty "five pound" weight gain that the Experts talk about. Believe me this is not necessary, in fact you can maintain your weight during the holidays very easily.

The time up to Christmas and between Christmas and New Year’s is a wonderful time for getting together with family and friends.  However, it is also a dreaded time in so many people's minds and often times many of us just give up to those extra "five pounds" and say "Who Cares I Will Lose It in the New Year". Rather than making a New Year's resolution to lose weight, why not make a Pre New Year’s Resolution not to put any on.

Here are some suggestions:
  • Make sure you get a good night’s sleep the night before a party. Sleepless nights are directly linked to an increase in the body's production of a hormone called Ghrelin, which is a hunger hormone.
  • Keep up your exercise program, and in fact, exercise in the morning before any holiday dinners or parties.
  • Drink plenty of water; make sure you drink an 8oz glass of water before a big meal.  Also, drink water in between an alcoholic beverage.
  • Find healthier recipes for holiday parties with tasty substitutes for high fat ingredients.
  • Fill half of your plate with healthy veggies.
  • Bring a healthy dish to a party that is tasty and that everyone will enjoy. It will be easier for you to eat wisely when you have support.
  • When getting ready for a party, usually we tell ourselves if we starve ourselves all day we can eat more later that night, but actually, it is important to eat every 3 to 4 hours, at the same time of day if possible, it lowers insulin, causing less cravings and less body fat.
  • If you want to lose weight do not eat 3 hours before bedtime. So for example if you go to sleep at 11:00 p.m. your last meal or snack should be at 8:00 p.m.
You do not need to deprive yourself of enjoying the wonderful food during the Holiday Season just remember to make those healthy choices and keep at the back of your mind that in The New Year you may want to lose 10 lbs. but not 15 lbs. by putting 5 lbs. on during the Holidays.

I took colour meditation lessons from Leslie. The use of colours through meditation has impacted my life significantly by helping me de-stress my life, improve my sleep habits, and provide me with a positive outlook on life. I look forward to the next level of meditation with Leslie.

The hour of 4:00 p.m. is often difficult for women in peri-menopause or menopause.
Here is a good tip:
  1. Have a cup of peppermint tea or any other relaxing tea...
  2. With a few slices of an apple and a bit of natural peanut butter.
  3. Then, go out for a half hour to forty-five minute walk.
Try it! You will feel energized and relaxed!

Colour Meditation
Picture
"We respond to colour through our emotions, when I give a client a colour to meditate on it helps to reprogram their subconscious so that they respond to stressful situations with a new outlook rather than from old programming.
 
Colour meditation is a delightful way to learn to meditate because you get results very quickly and it is fun and very easy to learn."

"The meditation technique that Leslie has taught me has helped me make changes in my life. I have been very stressed with personal issues and facing major surgery so the technique has helped me reduce stress, allowed me to be more relaxed. This happened almost immediately upon using the meditations. 

I feel confident that I have a tool to help me deal with whatever life throws at me.
Thank you, Leslie"

Add Years To Your Life - Meditate:
"Studies have shown that taking the time to unwind  can alter your genes for the better. Harvard researchers discovered that just 20 minutes of relaxation boosts genetic activity, which may strengthen immune function and improve the ways we metabolize energy and regulate blood sugar."

From this research the genetic benefits were obvious within eight weeks, even for the beginning meditator. If Mediation is not something that you do regularly, then try it today, attend a class or workshop, or work with a meditation coach  to get inspired. Once you are comfortable you can Meditate on your own every morning or every evening, which ever fits into your schedule.

I was reading an article this morning about New Mom's experiencing a desire to get back in shape after the birth of a new baby and that Exercise and Meditation can reduce the chances of  depression.  It triggered an old feeling in me and I automatically went back to the way I felt over 40 years ago when I gave birth to my two girls, one in 1971 and the other in 1973.  At the time there were no groups to reach out to that were a support system for New Moms.  I actually am feeling quite emotional writing this blog and remembering how I felt...isolated, depressed and at times so lonely that I wanted to scream... I was a very young mother, 23 when I gave birth to my first daughter and 25 when I gave birth to my second daughter.
A 2008 study by Dr. Cassandra Vieten from the California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute looked at the effects of mindfulness meditation and Hatha Yoga on prenatal stress and mood and demonstrated a 20-25% reduction in stress levels and anxiety in pregnant women.
 
 
Why is it that Summer can be a time of putting on Five Extra Pounds?  Well, I can tell you from personal experience, no I am not perfect, I too can put on weight...and this is how - enjoying life to the fullest.  I believe that during the summer months it is a great time to get caught up with friends and family, as we tend to hibernate in the Winter, and getting together with friends and family can mean that extra glass of cold white wine, those delicious sweet potato fries… These are my downfalls. What are yours?

Well, Fall is around the corner and I always look at after Labour Day as a time to get back on track. So here are a few suggestions for a healthier diet that I am going to use and perhaps you would like to try out as well.  I would love to hear how they work for you.

Root Vegetables such as yams, turnips, beets, red potatoes, squash and even a few carrots actually help you to lose weight because they are high in fiber and contain high water levels which helps to fill you up longer. Also they have a lower concentration of calories compared to other foods such as pasta.

Research has shown that individuals who eat breakfast live longer, have healthier hearts and are less prone to depression and stress and are slimmer. Research has also proven that people who do not eat breakfast will be hungry mid-morning and will turn to high fat snacks such as something sweet, and this in turn is likely to cause them to put on weight.

Green Leafy Vegetables such as spinach, cabbage and broccoli (check out my Facebook Timeline for a great broccoli recipe) can prove to be very filling.  They are bulky veggies because of plenty of leaves and stalks, they also contain folic acid which is important for nerve functioning and helps to prevent heart disease.  Broccoli contains one/seventh of the calories found in pasta.

A recent study from Canada is suggesting that a key chemical in chilies can boost your body's ability to burn fat and curb your appetite because capsaicin, the chemical that gives chilies such as cayenne and paprika their pungency actually stimulates a natural process whereby some of the food that we eat is converted immediately to heat.  This is called diet-induced thermogenesis, and this process is great for people wanting to lose weight because it means that we burn up calories automatically rather than storing them.
