The Apache Tears is a stone considered to have healing properties for people that are experiencing the loss of a loved one. What you may not know is that these stones are originated from volcanic ash and known as black obsidian. They are not really a crystal and form in round or oval shapes. They can be found all over the world where ever there may be volcanic ashes.
So what is the story behind the apache tears? The story tells of a native apache tribe in the 1870s in the town now known as Superior, Arizona. At this time the Apache nation and the US Calvary engaged in war and the US Calvary ambushed the Apache men killing many and leaving 75 to the edge of what is now known as “Apache Leap Mountain“.
These native warriors chose to leap to their deaths rather than be captured by the white man. After the news got out of the ambush the families of these men came to the mountain side to mourn. As the tears dropped to the ground they turned to stone. This is a legend and maybe the purpose of it is retell about a devastating time.
The stone is lava that quickly dries and becomes obsidian nodules. They have a very translucent appearance and some like to carry this in their pocket as worry stone and believe it helps with grief and other negative emotions. It is also believed to work well with rose quartz for healing properties.
The story of The Apache Tears is a very moving story and it is a legend that has been passed down for many generations. One can take as just that a legend but if you find comfort with holding this stone when you are overwhelmed with grief or emotional disturbance then please allow yourself that release.
Well what do you think about energy healing, is it for real? I have been a skeptic for many years and this is a subject area that I only have a small amount of knowledge about. I know the we are powerful beings and that we either can create a negative environment or a positive environment through the way we think or act. So being that the brain is a lot of neurons that connect to different body movements are we all just energy within a shell called a human body?
There are many so called experts in this field that have indeed been studying the subject with a lot of intensity. As a person of faith one may say it is blasphemous to say that mere humans have power and their own distinct energy source. Is that really a true statement if you have a religious background or is it just a way to keep people from believing that our source or higher being is within us. I do believe in spirits and I feel I have a strong sense of spirituality but I am not a follower of a traditional religion.
As a child I always talked to a GOD, and I always had my own ideas of who and what this GOD was so taking my faith to an extended belief such as energy healing was not so difficult for me. In all the Bible stories that have been told didn’t Jesus and GOD both expected us to believe with our mind, body and soul for things to happen. Take Noah he had to believe that it was GOD talking to him and that the storm would come and also the rain would stop.
Another example was the belief that a blind man would see or a cripple would walk. Were these examples of think it, feel it, then be it. I am in a place today that is open to this concept and as I look back on the history of spirit and the idea that we are all energy based beings I really need to consider all of these teachings. Now I am not here to preach religion or anti-religion, my only motive is to help others to open up to all the possibilities of life.
As I explore and open myself up to the idea of my mind being an energy force and realize the depth of that I also know that there is a world out there that is huge. The beautiful thing about the freedom to choose is that we can believe in a source within our mind, body, and souls to develop a lifestyle of our own.
One thing I am absolute about is I do have the power to be a positive source for others and with that alone there is only the idea energy healing that makes sense to me. I choose to be a source of good energy which in turn creates more good energy. That said then my higher being has allowed for me to see how powerful on human can be in this world we live in.
Are you stuck in a feeling that you just can’t get passed? Is facing new days and new situations more than you want to deal with? Are you unmotivated about life? Do you feel angry more than you wish to be? If you are, what are some of the strategies or skills you use to relieve your mind from the turmoil and emotional pain?
What is Emotional Baggage? Usually emotional baggage or emotional pain stems from past experiences that interfere with a person moving forward in a positive and productive manner. They can range from childhood experiences that were unresolved, traumatic events in life, or bad breakups in a marriage. No matter when or why the cause it can be crippling to a person and fear of moving on will keep them in a very unhealthy place.
Developing healthy relationships can become impossible for individuals with emotional baggage and until the emotional pain is addressed and resolved a person has an inability to move forward in their everyday life. Emotional pain can create a number of other mental illnesses which could develop into something more serious needing medical attention.
Carrying around emotional baggage can be a difficult thing to overcome but there are resources available to help people with emotional pain be it physical, mental or spiritual. In the world we live in; there are constant messages that come in text, video, workshops, and even for personal coaching. People that suffer from the stigma of emotional pain do not realize that there are so many answers out there and there is a perfect one for you.
What works for one may not work for another so to have the choice of treatment is one of the advantages of the 21st century but to do nothing and continue to suffer alone or miserably with another is not the answer. Take the time to find the right fit for healing and then take the steps to find your new normal. It may not be what you thought but it can still be totally amazing.
Coaching is often confused with counseling and mental health when it has nothing to do with the medical profession at all. Coaching is a way to for a person to take control of their own lives and goals with the assistance of another person that’s only role is to help the client reach goals without any emotional obstacles getting in the way. A counselor will provide a client with a diagnosis and identify the emotions that are interfering in their lives and the emotions are a product of what is wrong with them.
What should a person know when deciding on coaching, counseling, or mentoring? First let’s identify how they are similar, all want to help clients to reach their goals successfully, see progress in their clients, and help their clients to learn new skills to reach their goals.
Coaching is usually short-term task oriented goals with a focus on how to accomplish goals for the future. Coaching is present day obstacles that need to be cleared away for immediate success and for future success. A coach will focus on how to reach these goals through a variety of new systematic ways that will accomplish a positive end result.
Counseling is an emotional oriented goal focused on events from the past that may explain the “why” of behaviors. Counseling is usually long term and may include medical treatments. Counseling will have a diagnosis for the presenting behaviors and will include a treatment plan for obtaining goals be it past, present or future. Counseling may also involve medications that can only be prescribed by a doctor.
Mentoring is usually in a workplace type setting and is for the purpose of retention and developing the necessary skills for the new staff or member. Mentoring is often long term and is usually assigned by skills needed for the assignment given. Mentoring can be a very positive way to build expertise with a new position and help one to understand the immediate culture of the environment.
In today’s world you can find a coach for just about anything. Coaching is so huge that most coaches have a specific niche that they consider themselves and expert. There are five main categories of coaching that all coaching can fall under. They are executive coaching, career coaching, skills coaching, relationships coaching, and personal life coaching.
Under each category the list can be huge. As a coach myself I would fall under the personal life coaching in the area of grief and recovery. The expertise can be very well defined with each coaching practice and no matter what your niche is there are plenty of people looking for your services in the coaching field.
The greatest things a person can accomplish in their life is making their dreams come true and becoming empowered by the experience. Coaching will not give you your dreams or even make you feel empowered but a great coach will help you find your unique and true path to those dreams and during that journey you will become empowered through your accomplishments.
A great coach will lead you to self sufficiency and make sure when you are ready to walk your journey that you are equipped with all the right tools and beliefs that you need to make it on your journey’s path. Together you will define clear goals and the steps to accomplish them.
A coach will keep you moving forward and will not allow you to excuse yourself from the life you are seeking. No labels just action steps that will require your full attention. Can you imagine a life where you are in control of your outcomes and you take the actions needed for your own success?
If you are feeling stuck and not sure on how to get unstuck you may benefit from the coaching experience. Many people like to go it alone and there is nothing wrong with that but sometimes the voice in our head can create diversions that are unnecessary on our journey.
I know for me having true guidance and acceptance was a key to opening so many of the doors of success. I was quick but it was consistent and had I done this journey alone it may never have come to light. My journey still continues and it always will so welcoming another person’s guidance lessons the workload of trying to figure it all out alone.
For me, self-awareness and setting goals have changed my life and it was only through trusting and sharing with another that I was able to define who I was and where I wanted to go. The right people will always have the right words to get you on your journey no matter how many diversions you may take.
about coaching and would like to chat please feel free to comment or send a private message and I will be more than happy to provide a free consultation.
What is a limited mindset? As a young girl I was taught that people are born into circumstances and that we can’t change our outcome. I believed that my life would consist of being a high school drop out, working a job I hated, and settling for little.
Today this would be classified as limited beliefs and while growing up I was surrounding by them like many of others. It wasn’t until late in my life that I realized that I create my circumstances which in turn creates my outcomes and what a revelation that was.
Now my way of life some years later I practice changing the mindset that I knew as a child and knowing how powerful this practice can be for an individual it’s time to pass it on to others that are stuck in a mindset that no longer serves them. This is a daily practice that doesn’t have to be done perfectly but practice makes perfect for a person like myself.
There are so many ways to learn a new mindset and you can create within your mind the life you are truly meant to live. Our minds are powerful, with that power we can create whoever we want to be. So if you were told you couldn’t do something as a child they lied because you can do whatever you set your mind to do.
Profound, yes it most certainly is, this concept is way beyond profound and I a firm believer that anyone can overcome any limited belief from earlier on in their lives. There are so many excellent people that teach this way of life and also so many different practice that help one to develop a stronger mindset.
If you are ready to begin a new and meaningful way of life then let’s chat and because there is much to learn and explore. There will never be enough time for it all but the beginning is where we all start and then we breathe as the good energy enters and the bad energy leaves. Let’s learn and explore this together and see what is created.
