I remember one day about 7 years ago walking along the creek at Minnehaha Falls with my daughter. We were watching some 7-8 years old playing totally uninhibited in the river. My daughter asked, when did I forget how to do that? She was only 22.
I’d love you to make a treasure chest. Sometimes life is challenging and throws a lot of stuff our way. It’s those times that we need to dig in and gather the resources that we have inside to get through.
So why you don’t need the treasure chest now, get a bunch of slips of paper and a jar or pretty box. On those slips of paper write down resources that you have.
They may be physical things that make you feel better. like a warm snuggly blanket. It could be emotional, like going to a place where you feel really comfortable. It could be meditation. Or something spiritual like prayer or connecting somehow.
We all have amazing resources inside of us - physical, spiritual and mental things that help get us through tough times. Write down as many as you can think of on individual slips of paper. Put them in your treasure chest and when one of those tough times comes along, pick one out and do it!

Absolute truths are fact based. This is a pen. Water is wet. Rocks are hard.Relative truths are opinion based and agreement based. This is what we’ve made up as fact, by society or in our own minds. Both kinds of truth are very real.
As adults we are all too familiar with our own stress. We can feel it in our body and see the impact it has on our lives. We are also quite willing to share our stress journey with our friends, family and co workers. This sharing with others allows us to recognize that there are others out there just like us.
An issue that we see with some frequency is nocturnal bedwetting. Bedwetting isn’t considered problematic until after age 7, and is a concern for 8% of boys 12 and older, 4% of girls. It is frustrating for the parents and embarrassing for the child.
How often do you use these words to describe how you feel? - Stressed, overloaded, ready for a breakdown. Did you know that these words were originally meant to describe assembly line machines. They were never meant to define human conditions.If you find yourself regularly using these words to describe your situation, perhaps it’s time to look at what would bring you deep happiness. In the words of Joseph Campbell, “What is it that makes you happy? Stay with it no matter what people tell you. This is what I call following your bliss.”I’m Roberta Fernandez, a Board Certified Hypnotist and Certified Trainer at The FARE Hypnosis Center, helping you take back control, by unlocking the power of your mind to reach your goals of any kind.
