E-motion The Movie

If your subconscious mind
is 1000 times more powerful
than the conscious mind,
what controls it?

I thoroughly enjoyed watching E-motion. Apparently, there is a 2014 version. And this is a summary description on IMDb,

E-Motion is a factual documentary that explores how human emotions affect the physiology of the human body and how once negative emotions are replaced with positive emotions bona fide physical changes occur. A team of emotion experts from around the world share their wisdom and negative emotion clearing methods to show humanity the path to health and enlightenment.

The amazing accolades collected by the 2014 version is impressive.

  • Official Selection ILLUMINATE Film Festival 2014
  • Official Selection AWARENESS Cinema Festival 2014
  • Winner Golden Award WORLD FILM AWARDS 2014
  • Official Selection ASHEVILLE Film Festival 2014
  • Official Selection MONARCH Film Festival 2014

It has been inspiring and thought-provoking for me. It is such a joy to share the precious gems in it with you. I know you are busy so here you have it in a easy to read format. Do read it mindfully! 🙂

HIGHLIGHTS

  • When we don’t work through our stuff, it manifests as diseases.
  • Every dis-ease that we experience are emotions, memories that are buried in our subconscious, that’s been triggered.
  • All organisms in nature are designed for short term stress, except for humans. We have the capacity to recall memories for a long time and stressing our system all over again when we do that.
  • The protective mechanism in our mind suppress these memories and feelings, not just in our minds, but also in our bodies. The evidence is muscular tension.
  • The human body is really nothing but energy zipping around in the speed of light.
  • Emotions means energy in motion. It’s our thoughts that create our emotions. And our emotions create our behavior.
  • When you hear people telling the same story over and over again, they are really suffering in their story.
  • We have been taught to resist the things that don’t feel good, instead of feeling the things that don’t feel good.
  • We look outside for answers. But the answers are inside because our feelings are inside of us.
  • 9% of our energy is used to suppress energy from our past.
  • Your biology is your biography.
  • Symptoms are the body crying out, telling us that there is something wrong there.
  • We are not made wrong. We are not broken. We are not missing anything.
  • If we allow the emotions to last for hours or days, it’s called the mood. If we keep allowing the same emotions to last for weeks or months, it’s called the temperament. If we keep at it for months or years, its called a personality trait.
  • So often people think that they have forgiven somebody, but they haven’t. Because their bodies are expressing the unforgiveness.
  • Being willing to be vulnerable and feeling again, is the first step to healing and finding our joy.
  • The placebo effect is proving that the mind can heal itself, despite of the sugar pill or the fake operation.
  • The subconscious mind acts as a broadcasting signal.
  • True transformations comes when we break free from the chains of the emotional addiction. The side effect of true transformation is called joy.
  • The emotional patterns we carry in our subconscious mind influence our relationship with money, and our relationship with each other.
  • The subconscious is a holographic archive of your existence, of every moment of your life.
  • The same emotions that is going on outside of you is also going on, inside of you. The blood is pumping these chemicals; of frustration, of jealousy, and of anxiety.
  • Our cells have these protein receptors site that binds these molecules of emotions. The amazing thing about these receptors, is that it is the same receptors that binds heroine. So guess what? We are addicted to our emotions.
  • We can take one energy of any type, and transform it into another energy.
  • The Ho’Oponopono Process:
    1 – I am sorry.
    2- Please forgive me.
    3 – Thank you.
    4- I love you.
  • If I wasn’t afraid, I would …
  • It is not fear that keeps us trapped. It is hiding from fear.
  • The biggest cloud to our perception is fear.
  • We move from the selfish state, which is driven by hormones and stress, to the selfless state, where we really want to contribute, and to make a difference.

It will be a nicer experience for you to watch the actual movie, so if you like, you can check out E-motion documentary here or the 2014 version in IMdb.

This movie has been heartening for me, given that I am also starting to place more emphasis in the healing aspect of my work as well.

As a newly certified Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) facilitator who can use the AFT process to help clients clear blocked feelings, emotions and memories from the past, you can imagine how in sync I felt with the movie.

Let’s all do the work. Allow yourself to feel your emotions again.

QUICK EXERCISE

For the next 7 days, for at least once a day, pause for a moment and ask yourself.

1. How do I feel right now? (One word, feeling word)

2. What do I need right now? What can I give to myself right now?

3. If you can, record/journal it.

4. Review your journal at the end of the week.
It will be interesting to see what new insights you get at the end of it.

5. Share your insights with me with you like! 🙂

6. Share this post with someone else and encourage them to do the exercise.

If you struggle to identify your feelings, trust me, it is very normal. And you can use the emotion wheel to help you. So hey, be patient and be kind to yourself in the process. 🙂

Let the healing begin.

~ Nurturing Resilience, Vitality and Self-love in Women ~

Are You Depressed?

In the U.S alone, about 15 million people suffer from depression annually. Although majority are women,

almost two-thirds do not seek help.

  • Are you among the two-thirds?
  • Are you wondering if you are depressed?
  • How do you know if you are depressed?

Given the scary statistics on women, you can understand why I feel the need to do a post on depression and women.

WOMEN AND DEPRESSION

Women are twice as likely to develop clinical depression as men. Almost up to one in four women is likely to have at least one episode of major depression at some point in life.

Meaning that

between you and three of your close girlfriends, one of you is going to have a major depression episode at some point.

Depression is common, depression is real and no it doesn’t just happen to ‘other people.’

Depression can happen to anyone, including you and me.

So then, what exactly is depression?

WHAT IS DEPRESSION?

According to Webmd,

clinical depression is a serious and pervasive mood disorder.

It causes feelings of sadness, hopelessness, helplessness, and worthlessness.

Depression can be mild to moderate with symptoms of apathy, little appetite, difficulty sleeping, low self-esteem, and low-grade fatigue. Or it can be more severe.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?

In women, symptoms of depression include:

  • Persistent sadness, anxiety, or a sense of ’emptiness’
  • Little or no interest or pleasure in activities, including sex
  • Restlessness, irritability, or excessive crying
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness, hopelessness, pessimism
  • Sleeping too much or too  little, middle of the night wakings
  • Loss of appetite &/ weight loss or overeating & weight gain
  • Decreased energy, fatigue, feeling ‘sluggish’
  • Contemplation of death or suicide, or suicide attempts
  • Trouble concentrating, remembering or making decisions
  • Persistent physical symptoms that do not respond to treatment, such as headaches, digestive disorders, and chronic pain

WHY DO WOMEN GET DEPRESSION MORE OFTEN THAN MEN?

  1. BIOLOGICAL/PHYSICAL/HORMONAL

I. Women’s Hormonal Fluctuations

The fluctuations of hormones level throughout a woman’s life have been believed to be a major factor. Hormones changes are most evident during significant periods in a woman’s life.

  • Premenstrual stress can also cause depression, anxiety and mood swings one week before menstruation.
  • Pregnancy, infertility, miscarriage, unwanted pregnancy
  • Postpartum depression
  • Perimenopause and menopause

II. Health Challenges

  • Chronic illness
  • Injury
  • Disability
  • Dieting
  • Quitting vices/addictions (e.g. alcohol, drugs, smoking)
  • Medication side effects (E.g. birth control medication, hormone replacement therapy.)

2. PSYCHOLOGICAL

I. Feelings

Women are more likely to ruminate when they are depressed. We cry to relieve our emotional tension, have negative inner dialogues and confide in friends about our depression.

The thing is,

rumination reinforces depression
and can make it worse.

II. Environmental stressors

Stress from work, school or at home can affect women more than men. Studies have shown that women are more likely to develop depression from stress, as compared to men.

Also, the female physiological response
to stress is to produce
MORE stress hormones.

The female sex hormone progesterone does not turn off the stress hormone system the way it does in men.

III. Body Image Issues

Ah, this is the bomb for women. And often, it already starts in puberty. Not only does a young girl experiences the challenges and confusion that comes with puberty, she would have already been exposed to the implicit and explicit expectations of society about women, by  observing her environment and the female figures in her life. And of course,

the impossible perfect body.

3. SOCIAL

Social factors, lifestyle choices, relationships and coping skills can become potential breeding grounds for depression as well.

  • Marital or love relationships, balancing the demands of romance, home life and career.
  • Family duties, such as caring for the spouse, the young and the aging.
  • Work challenges or discrimination at work such as skipped for a promotion or even retrenchment.
  • Death and sickness of loved ones.

4. OTHER FACTORS

Factors that can increase the chance of depression in women.

  • Genetic
  • Interpersonal
  • Psychological or personality characteristics
  • Being a single parent
  • Family history of mood disorders
  • History of mood disorders in early reproductive years
  • Loss of a parent before age 10
  • Loss of social support system or the threat of such a loss
  • Ongoing psychological and social stress
  • Physical or sexual abuse

HOW TO COPE WITH DEPRESSION

As you can see, depression is common for women,

you are not alone.

While it is challenging to be enthusiastic about resolving your depression issue while in depression, you can start with baby steps.

Here are some suggestions on what you can do to slowly move yourself out of the black vacuum that you are feeling.

I will keep this short because I would like to do a separate post on techniques to cope with depression.

  • Find a friend who can be an open and non-judgemental listener for you.

    If there is none, there are always counselors and therapists near you whom you can seek help from.

  • Physical exercise

    Be it a slow walk by the park or a vigorous kick boxing session, exercise releases endorphins, that can make you feel good and better about yourself.

  • Quality sleep

    Have at least 6-8 of sleep. Do not shortchange yourself on quality sleep that can help you to rest, repair and rejuvenate.

  • Meditate

    Make time for stillness to centered yourself back to your core again. Breath works is great too. My favorite tool is Insight App.

  • Gratitude

    Just for two minutes every night, list down the blessings that still abounds in your life. Breath and expand the sensation of gratitude in your heart.

  • Hydration

    About 60% of the human body is water. Make sure you drink enough water everyday to stay hydrated and to minimize disruptions in the bodily functions/processes. Avoid or minimize alcohol or dehydrating fluids like coffee.

  • Spiritual guidance

    Whatever is your spiritual or religious beliefs, seek constant inspiration and draw strength from it. There must be a reason why this is your spirituality, anchor on it.

  • Sunlight is your friend

    Get outdoors, breath in the fresh air, and soak in the sunlight. It will do wonders for your body, mind and spirit.

    Better still, book a session of Open-Hearted Walk with me and you get counseling plus a refreshing outdoor walk, all in one! 🙂

  • Socialize

    Be involved in social activities, meet up with your friends.  Join a new social club or interest group!

  • Get therapy

    Explore psycho-therapy, energy healing. For example, Aroma Freedom Technique is known to be a quick process that helps you process past negative feelings and memories, so that you can let go of the past and move your emotional energy into a positive direction.

  • Challenge your thoughts

    When that negative voice starts again, challenge it. Don’t just accept it. Ask for evidence for what it’s saying and think of times/evidence when it was not the case.

  • Keep going!

    Even when you don’t feel like it, still get up and moving. Continue to meet friends, walk the dog, show up for work. Keep going!

So, are you depressed?

What jumped out at you from this post?

Use this depression quiz to determine where you are.

It is important to seek support and even professional help if you are depressed. First thing first, awareness. Use the depression quiz to gain awareness.

~ Nurturing Resilience, Vitality and Self-love in Women ~

 

Story SMASHer Coaching Program

This coaching program fills me with so much excitement and joy, because it very much also signifies my own personal growth and healing process.

Bringing to you what has worked powerfully for me,

with the intention that it will do the same or more for you.

We all have stories in our head.

Stories about ourselves, the people around us and the world we live in. Using stories to make meaning, and to make sense of our lives is a very instinctive part of the human psyche.

In fact, that is how cultures have been created and preserved through the years. Myths, legends and even rumors, are stories that we make, stories that we share, that make US go round. It’s like casting magical spells.

The question is,

Are you concocting the right spell
for a joyful you?

Come to think of it, was it so long ago when our ancestors and even until today, the primitive societies or aboriginal cultures still continue sharing stories around the fire.

So, what stories do you have about yourself?

What stories have you been living on a daily basis as if they are real?

It is called the self-fulfilling prophecy. 🙂

  • What have your stories manifested in your life?

  • Are they stories of redemption? Or are they stories of contamination?

  • Do the stories you weave nurture and nourish you?

  • Do you feel joy and peace from the world you have built through your stories?

  • What stories from the past that has helped you ‘survive’ then, do you still carry on with you?

  • What stories from the past that was created by a hurt and lonely child do you still act out, because you do not know how else to respond?

Ever hear a scary story or watch a horror movie that kept you up through the night?

Ever heard an inspiring story and felt motivated to act on an overdue dream?

Then you would know that

the power of stories cannot be underestimated.

What more the stories you are telling YOURSELF?

Stories, like energy and ideas, are so intangible and yet so captivating. Once it hooks your attention, there is no turning back. You become fascinated and engrossed.

And yet, others might have no idea how that story or that idea is influencing you.

It’s potent invisible power.

  • What potent invisible power is steering the wheel of your life?

  • Do you have the awareness to discern?

  • Do you have the courage to find out?

  • How willing are you, to do the work, to claim back joy and peace in your life?

These stories that you are telling yourself defines so many aspects of you; how you behave, what you say, how you feel, how you motivate yourself, and even how you self-sabotage.

Whether you are conscious of it or not, you are living out these stories anyway. They are always there, determining your every move.

  • Are you living a life on autopilot, dictated by these invisible stories?

  • Are you living a life of awareness, conscious of the stories you have about yourself and the world, mindful to live out self-nurturing stories?

  • What is the central story you have about yourself?

Do you even know?

MY STORY

I spent thirty years living a story of
‘I am unworthy and unlovable.’

This was a story weaved by a child, who felt abandoned and unworthy. I continued into adulthood, living from that disempowering space.

I was driven to collecting as many certifications as I could. I was very competitive, and highly judgemental of myself, and the people around me.

Everything that I did or thought was based on the anxiety of having to prove my ‘worthiness’ to myself, and to prove that I am ‘lovable’ to the world.

I was an educated, attractive and deeply depressed young woman.

Deep down, I still felt
unworthy and unlovable.

Sounds familiar?

It took enough pain for me to decide to do ‘radical therapy’ on myself, and to commit to eliminating this story, and to anchor in a more self-nurturing story of

I am an authentic, intuitive,

powerful and playful Shakti.

That journey was ironically triggered by my desire to be an empowerment coach for women. In the preparation process, it occurred to me that

I was the first woman

I needed to help heal and coach.

That began a series of events, therapies, rituals, Warrior Goddess training, SheDance training, Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) training, and many other inspired actions.

It was hard and heart work,

but it began my healing journey, my long pilgrimage back to myself.

Warrior Goddess Training with Heather Ash Amara in Sedona, USA.

It also blossomed into a beautiful autobiography book, From Zero to Shakti.

So here,

I invite you to take my hand
and do the same
for yourself.

Get connected with your heart, and start examining the stories that you are carrying with you. I am here with you, every step of the way, and I will be your cheerleader!

Story SMASH!er was lovingly crafted, based on my own experience, for this very intention, to start you on your way back home to yourself, through self-nurturing stories. 🙂

Excerpt from the podcast show notes –

  • What stories are you holding onto?

  • How have they defined you up until this moment?

  • Are you ready to see them for what they are?

In our conversation, we talk about a pivotal moment in her journey where she used the “empty chair technique” to have a long overdue conversation with her birth mom. This conversation changed her life.

2. MIND MAP COACHING (WHOLE BRAIN CONVERSATION)


Using my training from my psychology degree and as an International Coach Federation coach,

We will have a fun, yet meaning session

Using colours and our conversation,

To create a masterpiece of our conversation

We will focus on –

  • The goal for our coaching time together ,
  • Challenge your thought processes and
  • Clarify your highest values
  • Establish what action needs to be taken
  • Propel you towards your desired outcomes.

3. MOVEMENT GROUNDING

Being one of the first to start a pole dancing studio in Singapore in 2005, I have seen and experienced personally, the power of movement as a potent self-revitalizing tool.

While intellectually, you may have engaged in the conversation, and logically came to your conclusions, these precious insights are not grounded in your body .
Mentally you ‘get’ it, but your body don’t.

Ever ‘understood’ something and yet, did not feel it or lost motivation for it afterwards?

Hence, we need to involve your physical being, into the coaching conversation.

This ensures that the insights, the commitment and the inspired action are now in complete alignment with your entire being.

That’s when true personal Shakti happens.

We will use your natural movement

  • To celebrate the awakening of your Shakti-self and
  • To ensure that what you have explored during the coaching session is also acknowledged and affirmed by your body.
  • To cements your body*mind*spirit alignment to your goals.

P.s. NO dancing experienced required. Your body will surprise you how it comes alive. Stay receptive. 🙂

“I was immediately struck by Joy’s vibrant energy.
She is a compassionate person with a quick mind,
and I found her coaching to be skillful and intuitive.

If you ever need coaching, I would recommend her:
not only will she help sort you out,
she will be your cheerleader every step of the way!”

You are whole.

You are powerful.

You are divine.

When you read these words do you feel the truth of them ringing in your bones?

Or do you feel the muffling weight of self-judgment and self-doubt, the deep-marrow fear of not being good enough, and the exhaustion of seeking your value outside of yourself?

If you don’t love and honor yourself with every fiber of your being, if you could use more joyful play and simple presence in your life, if you struggle with owning your power and passion, then it is time for an inner revolution.

It is time to claim your Warrior Goddess energy.

As women we are searching for a new freedom, the freedom from self-judgment, comparison, and struggle. The freedom from trying to take care of everyone else and forgetting ourselves in the process.

The freedom to be the women we are meant to be.


Imagine giving yourself this freedom: to be you, 100%, and to love all of you. Yes, you can learn to love and accept all of you.

Join in a dynamic, experiential class series where together we will create a new foundation for healing, power, and transformation.

In this four-part series you will learn how to:

  • Commit to yourself with compassion and humor
  • Unwind old agreements and beliefs that no longer serve you
  • Find your authentic expression
  • Walk with joy on your path of transformation, even when it is challenging

Joy is a certified Warrior Goddess Facilitator, trained by the author of Warrior Goddess Training and Warrior Goddess Way.

Shaktis on Fire (SOF) Vision

Coming from a family of sisters and watching the females head the extended family for three generations, it feels like natural destiny to be an empowerment coach for women.

The women who have undergone my training programs are called Shaktis on Fire (SOF). Shakti means goddess in Hindu and for reasons I have yet to comprehend, it is a word that I am very drawn to.

My burning vision

is the

empowerment of one million

Shaktis-on-Fire,

who have pledged to do

three million good deeds,

by my forty-eight birthday, making this an ambitious ten years mission!

This is a vision that truly sets my heart on fire.

Shakti on Fire Sparks (AIPP)

The four SOF sparks, which illuminates the heart of SOF training are

  1. Authenticity,

  2. Intuition,

  3. Pl@y! and

  4. Power.

The various programs focuses on training SOFs on one or more of the sparks. SOF will have to complete a program for each of the sparks.

Shakti on Fire Fulfillment

The four steps process of SOF fulfillment, in order of sequence, is

  1. Training,

  2. Commitment,

  3. Accountability and

  4. Achievement

    1. TRAINING

SOFs starts off by working on their own healing and empowerment, through courses made available online or by attending live workshops.

2. COMMITMENT

SOFs who wants to go beyond their own empowerment, to pay it forward, will sign the Shaktis-on-Fire (SOF) Empowerment Pledge.
They have declared to do three projects of their choice, to empower these 3 areas
1 ~ Family,
2 ~ Community,
3 ~ Humanity

3. ACCOUNTABILITY

SOFs will have an accountability partner, a fellow SOF, to ensure the completion of their three projects. They will declare their own deadlines.

4. ACHIEVEMENT

SOFs will announce the completion of their pledges and celebrate it in the Shaktis-on-Fire community and beyond.

One million Shaktis-on-Fire, three millions good deeds.

Are you one of us?

Dear fellow SOFs, I am so very proud of all of you.
Let’s continue to claim our natural birthright as Shaktis on Fire, and use our powerful flame to set the world ablaze with love, healing, wisdom, strength, courage and empowerment.

Time to fan the flames.

Find out about my story of healing and redemption in my book on Amazon, From Zero to Shakti, a woman’s search for rebirth and redemption.

Shakti on Fire (SOF) 28 – What’s Your Story Morning Glory?

How would you rate yourself as a human being?

In the past, I would rate myself a negative 5.

Why? Oh boy, don’t even get me started. Pathetic from the beginning.

Decidedly abandon-worthy by mum at a tender age, grew up as a kid with scoliosis, never successful in friendships with female classmates in my primary school, achieved a nasty tomboy reputation by getting into fights with the boys.

furious-woman-screaming

Hated school, hated home, hated myself, cannot decide which I hated more.

Probably the latter.

When I played soccer, I will always score my own goals and I will be the highest scorer. Nobody ever wanted me to be in their team. In my secondary school years, I stayed with my first boyfriend and ran away from home.

What was there to celebrate in life? Nothing.

I dragged my feet around, wondering why I was born and what’s the point of it all.

Growing up, I got into several utterly disastrous relationships. One was a married man, who kept his marriage a secret for months. I was stalked and threatened by the suffering wife. Another was a psychopath lawyer, who acted all loving and devoted to me, in front of others while scheming a loan letter to be made, secretly under my name.

Next came a man who seemed to be such a perfect match with me, but is secretly a sadist sending explicitly sexual texts and images to his ex and making adulterous moves to other women in the course of our relationship.

Life sucks big time.

But what if I can write the same life story authentically, still mine and it can look radically different.

Doubt so? So let’s give it a shot.

My mother had enough faith in me as an individual, even as a young child and she decided that I will thrive in life even without her support. I will be able to do so more than my younger sister. And she is so right. I did.

Because of the emotional challenges I faced growing up, being a child aware of my adoption, I became stronger, more resilient and determined an individual. I had too much pride to fail. And I also have a lot of empathy of others who are in pain.

As a newly adopted ‘only child’, I had no one to turn to, so I turned to my books for solace. I escaped into the literary fictional world of Jackson 5, Roald Dahl, Nancy Drew and the likes. It was a seductive world, where I spend more of my waking moments than in the real world.

That thoroughly exasperated my new parents. But I did not scare. I felt safe here. I got lost in another world, where I was not ‘unwanted’. Because of that, my love and my command of the English language became a deeply rooted vein in my life. And it had also helped propelled me in life.

DSC_1197

Because of my need to prove my worth to myself, to my family and to the world, I started one of the first pole-dancing studio in Singapore, SensUal Joy, in 2005. I also started the school in defiance, despite of the fact that I had moderate scoliosis. I wanted to go against the status quo.

Who is to say what I can or cannot do?

Deliciously scandalous, it was such an uphill task but I loved it. It was the first bravest thing I had ever done for myself. SensUal Joy helped to reclaim my sense of self. It taught me that

I was capable of so much more.

In a desperate, never-ending strive to justify my worth, I became obsessed with learning. I worked in companies, that promoted motivational learning, I grab anything that I could possibly lay my hands on to learn and to give me an edge. I grab every opportunity to go for free or subsided seminars. I was so ravenous for knowledge, so thirsty for acceptance.

In the process of it all, I became genuinely in love with learning and education. What was derived from

a sad person’s lack of self-esteem

has blossomed

into a beautiful tree of knowledge.

That has enabled me to be an accredited life coach today and a certified warrior goddess facilitator. It has also entrenched so deeply in me the value of education that I started a fund raising group, For Our Children, to raise money to build schools in third world countries.

IMG_1811

Who would have guessed?

Carrying this hidden sense of shame and worthlessness for the last thirty years, had crescendoed into a pilgrimage of the soul, to Sedona by myself, with the intention of rebirth. It resulted in an exciting solo trip, half across the world, ridden with a series of unfortunate incidents, including a serious health scare, only to come home, purified and reborn.

Frm Zero to SHakti cover

The best part is that, it brought about the birth of my first book, From Zero to Shakti, now available on Amazon.

Thanks to my shame and my pain,

I have fulfilled my childhood dream of being an author.

Kind of kick ass isn’t it?

Having been cheated in so many different forms and shapes by men, I had tasted all the different textures and layers of betrayal, shame, pain, bitterness, tears, blood, and very dark nights of the soul.

But it only propelled me to keep rising like the relentless wave. Ever rising, ever moving. It had inspired my vision in life, the uprising of one million Shaktis-on-Fire. The empowerment of one million women who will pay it forward.

So there, I have told you

two different stories.

Same life. Same person. Me.

Which story is true?

Both are.

Which one empowers me?

Which perspective am I embracing in life?

That is a constant moment-by-moment choice.

Are you the victim or the victor?

Sometimes, they are one and the same.

And hey!

You get to choose!

What is your old story?

What is your new story?

Be the author of the right story.

Give yourself the gift of an empowering life story today.
