Today we’re talking about tuning in to what lights us up so we can make 2022 an amazing and joyful year.

We are now a week into 2022, and it’s undoubtedly a great time to set our sights on doing things differently than we ever have before. Or, perhaps taking a look at how we can tweak some of the things in our lives to make them better and even more effective. 

There is so much opportunity amidst the fresh energy of a brand new year, but so often, we don’t follow our bliss or step into what lights us up. We think we can’t do what we truly want because it’s not practical or it won’t pay the bills. Even worse, we get so stuck on figuring out ‘the how’ behind what we want, which only pushes us further and further off course from where we’d like to be.

The theme for our Fall season was Resiliency, and now as we move into a brand new year, I want to talk about our new theme: Light – being open to the light, enlightening ourselves, and lightening up. In this episode, I’m also going to talk about why New Year’s resolutions can cause us to focus on failure more than success, and why a New Year Reset can be a much healthier and more positive approach to staying in alignment with our desires and making 2022 our best year yet!

About Paula:

Paula Shaw was Certified by the Grief Recovery Institute’s Program through Loyola Marymount Univesity as a Grief Recovery Specialist. She has been helping grieving people for over 28 years, using mind/body techniques to guide them through the discomfort of change and challenge, eliminating stress, depression, anxiety, weight gain, relationship distress, career challenges, a lack of energy, and self-destructive, addictive behavior.

These tools bypass the conscious mind–which is often rendered useless when emotions overwhelm us–and they work directly with the subconscious mind to shift problematic thinking, feelings, and behaviors that can result. Through these methods, it is possible to feel a sense of power and control in your life in a very short time.

Paula helps individuals regain successful lives by quickly identifying and eliminating self-sabotaging behavior and limiting beliefs by uncovering and addressing their core issues. Working with a wide variety of healing modalities, she provides her clients with the most effective processes for their specific needs. Because every person has unique challenges, this customized approach is critical to their success.

Paula is also the author of Chakras, the Magnificent Seven, which is a primer to the Chakra System and how to use it for greater health and healing, Grief… When Will This Pain Ever End?, which looks at loss and grief and provides practical, simple articles, processes, and exercises to help a grieving person move through their pain and back into joyful living, and her latest book, Saying The Right Thing When You Don’t Know What To Say, which is a guide to navigating difficult conversations that provides five steps to creating helpful, healing conversations.

If you are experiencing issues that feel overwhelming and you think that you might need help to overcome them, Paula offers a complimentary 20-minute consult that you can book on her website, or contact her at (858)-480-9234.

“Stay focused on the dream. Stay focused on that positive feeling. Remember what it feels like when you’re lit up, and keep giving yourself experiences when you can go back there. Because when you’re there, you are a powerful, powerful magnet for attracting what you really want to be experiencing in your life.” –  Paula Shaw
