How to Overcome Anxiety

August 3rd, 2017|Personal Breakthrough and Empowerment Tools|

The other day I read an article titled “The strongest girls are the girls with anxiety.”  The gist of the piece was that young women, who struggle with anxiety but don’t let themselves get stopped by this challenge, are like warriors facing their enemy every day without a moment of peace. While I agree with the author [...]

How to Control Your Emotions

July 18th, 2017|Personal Breakthrough and Empowerment Tools|

Although we rely heavily on our intellect to navigate from A to Z in our lives, we all know that when our emotions rise, our rational thoughts have little power to stop them.

Do you have a hard time leaving your house, because you have to check several times that the iron is unplugged or that the doors are locked?

When I was in medical school, one of my professors asked us, what we believe is the most dangerous risk factor for heart attacks. “I'll give you a hint, it isn’t smoking, high blood pressure or high cholesterol.” Well, since crickets was all he got from his students, he continued: “I know this is a trick [...]

In the light of numerous terrorist attacks around the world it is tempting to let fear and anger take the reins.

The Tablets of Light

Eighteen years ago I was in the high desert of New Mexico at a kundalini yoga retreat. It was my birthday, and I was bracing myself for a long day of meditation and exercise with 1,600 other yogis and yoginis.  Keep in mind this is not the sitting-on-a-pillow-and-letting-your-thoughts-float-away kind of meditation. Part of the philosophy [...]

What anxiety and your dog have in common?

“I was on my way home from work, sitting in traffic listening to my favorite radio station. All of the sudden my thoughts started racing and my chest got really tight and I had difficulties breathing. For a moment I thought about driving to the emergency room. But then I remembered what the doctor said [...]
