Hi, again, this is Denise, and I’m in what’s called “Movement Restriction Control” in my hometown here. That means we need to stay home, stay off the grounds, and only go out for food, doctors, or absolute necessities.
And I’m getting along OK at this time.
Wee talked yesterday about how important it is to keep a routine during times of stress, a regular rising and sleeping, eating, tidying, talking to friends, and so on.
What is important for your routine? Take a moment and ask yourself that question. Then, be sure to do it.
As a life coach and energy practitioner (I’m a Certified Body Code Practitioner), I keep a routine of getting fresh air during the daytime hours. And I love that I get to be by a big body of water to feel its rhythms.
Every morning, I get up and throw open the patio door to see where the tide is at, who’s out fishing, and if there are any rainclouds.
I breathe in the fresh air, I feel the wind (if there is any), and I do my stretches on the balcony.
l the further I can get outside these days, but even an open window and a fan (weather permitting, of course), can make all the difference in your days.
And, of course, if the air is polluted...well, that’s another story.
So, I encourage you to add some good, healthy, outside air into your lungs and into your home. Speak your gratitudes to the birds outside and the trees as they wave to you.
Sending you blessings from my heart,
I wanted to share a quick message with you considering the events that are unfolding on the planet as we speak. The COVID-19 events directly affect our lives, because we know that tomorrow will not be the same.
There will be a new normal, and it’s coming. Pretty fast.
I also don’t want to scare you any more than you are already traumatized.
I’ve been on a Movement Control Order for the whole country for over four weeks now. And, I’m getting a little antsy.
Now I am sure you have received lots of emails regarding this state of affairs, but this one is unlike any that I have sent before.
Why? Because I want to help you move past the fears, the anxiety, and the disconnectedness you might currently be experiencing when you think about the future.
I want to help you move towards a future with confidence, clarity, and courage. I want you to know that I’m here to support you and help you move away from the panic and towards your purpose.
I want to see you thrive in that new normal that is just around the corner.
So, What’s Going to Happen?
Most places are now in shutdown mode if not complete lockdowns. We’re on a Movement Control Order here, and it is helping slow the rate of the spread of the virus.
But it has been devastating for businesses, transportation, workers, and healthcare, to name a few. Businesses will go under and some will thrive and have more success than ever before.
In the midst of this tragedy, there is opportunity. It’s the time to think, reconsider, reassess, and plan for action.
The bad news…
There will be a big hit to the worldwide economy. But you already know that.
What does this mean to you?
Well, it means things will not be the same when we emerge from this. We’ll need to re-tool our thinking, how we relate to each other, how we do an economy, and what really matters to us. As individuals and as communities.
And this is what I’ve learned after lots of hard knocks…after all, this is Denise you’re talking to right now.
You know me, who has been through it and has discovered a different way of approaching life that has made all the difference.
If we have ignored our inner life, our true voice, our purpose, our spirituality, and the love that brings us life, then we will be hurting. Again, as individuals, communities, and nations.
The good news…
Those who have cleared their emotional, psychological, and spiritual clutter will have the advantage to move forward quickly into a new life with purpose, and a life they’ve chosen by design. Not just what the current culture told them to be or do, but a life they’ve intended based on what brings them meaning.
This is a new day. It’s just around the corner.
That’s because they grabbed this opportunity to go deep inside themselves, let go of inner pain and blockages, connect to a deeper purpose, and set healthy, loving, insightful intentions for their futures.
And that is the key. And I’m talking about you. And me.
Do that inner work FIRST, and the outer situations will start falling into place once you are aligned with your higher and true purpose.
Will you be ready? Or do you want to just re-enter your past and live the same old, same old? You really do have choices here.
I know, because I made different choices in my life that brought me into a whole new way of living. With confidence, clarity, and courage. And a lot more calm.
I want to support you as you move your life and your purpose into a new day. A new world. A new you.
Can you design a better life for your future?
I’m going to bring my lifetime of wisdom, experiences, learning, teachings, and knowledge to helping you not just survive this time but build hope for thriving for tomorrow.
What I’m hoping is that if more of us take this time to ask ourselves some tough questions, release unhelpful behaviors and beliefs, reorient our deepest yearnings, and then redesign our lives and futures—we will each have a profound impact on the wellbeing of our world.
The key right now…
If you’re finding yourself getting swept up in the fear, and you’re trying to make life decisions, then you might be setting yourself up for failure.
The key right now is to breathe, be calm, and take a step back before you make any decisions.
Right now you need to do the inner work needed so you’re ready for the next step that is ready to unfold for you.
Can you turn this into an opportunity?
Absolutely…and you should!
For you…and if you’re doing good for you, that good flows out to everyone around you.
This isn’t about being selfish or self-centered, this is about healing yourself so you can have the clarity, confidence, and courage to live into the new day that is coming.
The world needs you. The real, whole, healthy you.
Now, most folks will be pulling down the shades, contracting rather than expanding, shutting things down. I know we have to be on our toes to make it through this time, but this is not the time to shrink from the opportunity to move forward into a new life, a new world.
It’s an opportunity for you to strategize on how you want to change your life.
It’s an opportunity to start—one-by-one—new habits, perspectives, healthy beliefs, that will carry you through to the other side, the future you want to live.
It’s an opportunity for you to be person you want to be and give back to the world around you.
It’s an opportunity for you to dream bigger than you’ve dreamed before.
Here’s what I’m personally doing…
What I’m doing is creating a clear pathway through this situation that will lead my clients, friends, and tribe to designing a new life for the future.
Uncommon, out-of-the-ordinary strategies, if you will…
Looking forward to connecting and helping you thrive,
Denise “Yes, Life is Changing” Peterson, MM, CBCP

When I was a kid, you’d always find me with my nose in a book. Mom had to make me go outside to play.
To this day I am not athletic or even outdoorsy [caveat: once outside and enjoying the adventure, I love walking and hiking and water exercise back when we could do those things].
Now that we’re inside much more, we must still keep our bodies moving. Bend over, pick something up, move your legs, get up and down with the kids, watch a YouTube with an exercise that you’ll do, whatever it takes to twist and bend, rattle and roll. .
It’s one of the first things we who do energy work with clients will say: get up and move. Move the fluids throughout your body. Clean out your lymph system by physically moving your body so that the lymph moves, too. Here’s what the lymphatic system does (but nothing moves unless we physically move it in our bodies):
The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body.Feb 21, 2018

This is going to help your energy balances, your mental health, and your immune system. Some things that we all need to pay attention to these days.
There are great Yoga videos on YouTube, chair yoga, laughter yoga, more traditional aerobics, and even movements you can do while in bed. It all adds up.
Just so you know, I’m not a healthcare professional and cannot prescribe anything for you. But I know from personal experience that moving my body really helps my mind and soul, too.
Talk to you tomorrow!
Sending you blessings from my heart,
I'm still talking about letting go of the perfectionist part of me that clung to me for a long, long time.
Now, being perfectionist isn't about doing things well or to your highest ability. Those are good things. Because we do that to challenge ourselves and simply do well. Very good!
But perfectionism feeds beautifully into our shame, the shame we might pick up from our families or heap on ourselves. Maybe it is connected to something we did, or someone said to us, or we absorbed from our families.
Perfectionism is about the facade you put out there to the world while you inwardly cower thinking that someone might find out something awful about you.
So what do you do instead?
What we do, is point to some future event or acquisition that will drastically change the here and now. Like the thoughts that say...
Let's talk about what can greatly affect those feelings of shame and unworthiness. And start us on the road to transformation, wholeness, and purpose.
See you later!

If you look at the picture above, you'll notice that I've been blessed with some really good food here in Malaysia. This is a picture of high tea on a beautiful afternoon at the E&O Hotel, a classic colonial structure in the heart of Georgetown, Penang.
So, what is a blessing, anyway?
As a child growing up in the Lutheran expression of Christianity, I loved (yes, LOVED) when the Sunday morning church service concluded with the pastor giving the congregation a special blessing.
I don't fully remember the words, but it seemed to bring God from Above straight through the hand of the pastor and into my soul--with strength and love for another week.
And then, church was over.
Christie Marie Sheldon is a writer, speaker, healer with whom I resonate and from whom I've learned and practiced a lot of things. She shares about the power of blessing.
Christie muscle tested the relative vibrational energy of certain blessing phrases. Just saying, "I bless you," or visioning someone being showered with blessings had power to send love to someone that can support them during the day. Of course, you need to be coming from your heart and a place of love and gratitude.
This is raising your intuitive awareness and connects you to loved ones in a very special way. What a great thing to do as a parent or grandparent when we can't be with our loved ones all the time.
And the phrases, "I bless you from my heart. I bless you with pure love and light. and, I bless you with pure source energy" each clocked in at even higher levels of vibrational energy.
(Yes, there is a scale that gives emotions various numbers. At the bottom of the scale are shame at 20, guilt at 30 and apathy at 50. Higher vibrations like love are at 500, joy at 540, and peace at 600. Enlightenment comes in at 700-1000. Lower vibrations move slowly, are sluggish, hold you down while higher vibrations move quickly, lead to health, and attract other higher vibrations.

Words matter and these blessing words, when they are combined with love, gratitude, and joy can give someone else a real boost.
Next time you are wrapping gifts, add a blessing from your heart.
Making food for someone else? Add a blessing from your heart with pure source energy.
Sending someone off on a trip? Add a blessing from your heart with pure love and light.
This is a simple yet profound gift we can give to our loved ones or really, to any situation we encounter. Take a moment, listen to your heart, and share a blessing, either quietly or aloud. Then see what things shift for you and for those whom you bless.
And be grateful.
"I bless you from my heart. I bless you with pure love and light. I bless you with pure source energy."

I just returned to Penang, Malaysia from a 7-week friends and family tour of the USA. It was good to be there, and it's good to be home.
I started in Los Angeles, then on to Santa Fe, Tampa (kind of), Charlotte, and Baltimore. I slept in hotels and the extra room in my children's homes.
I drove unfamiliar cars in equally unfamiliar cities. I Lyfted, Uber'ed, and airlined. I ate whatever food was available, put before me, or that I cooked. I learned new remote controls and how to cast to TV. I met my childrens' neighbors, relatives, and co-workers. I chauffeured, read stories, and carried groceries.
I loved every moment of it, even though it was disorienting at the same time. It was long (maybe too long) and yet it flew by in the blink of an eye.
The best parts included spending an extended amount of time with my grandchildren. They are now more comfortable with me around and not just someone on Facetime. Oh, how beautiful they are!
I loved being there when my granddaughters got their ears pierced. And when grandsons giggled their way to bedtime. When one got special hair highlights and another tries out for the college orchestra. And the long discussions about life, jobs, and choices with the adults.
But, now I'm home. And, yes, Penang, Malaysia feels like it is in my soul for the foreseeable future.
So what makes a home, home?
Ah, home. I'm grateful.
A friend and I have been sharing our gratitude emails for maybe eight months. And, yes, our miracles are constantly unfolding. By changing our vibration to a higher level through gratitude--gratitude that is written down and shared--we each have had major breakthroughs in life. Now, our gratitude emails are not always written just right nor are they about everything glorious. They are real but with a twist of appreciation that comes with changing your perspective on things that come into your life.
Truly, give it a try. Get the book and find a friend who will commit to doing this with you for at least 40 days. Enjoy your miracles!
Gratitude Goes a Long Way in Expressing Yourself
Now, openly expressing your negative feelings doesn’t mean you should go around putting others down and it also doesn’t mean finger wagging or accusing. Instead, find a more constructive way to get things off your chest. You might find it’s best for you to write your feelings down, wait a day or so, review your email for tone, and send them off in an e-mail. If you have the creative ability, write a poem or a song about your feelings. Whatever you do, focus on the problem, not the person. After all, we all make mistakes!
If you think you can’t be that open about your feelings, always express what you are thankful for first. For example, you can start with a positive compliment then gradually express your frustrations.
Remember to feel the gratitude even if you want to “feel” your hurt or anger. The higher vibrational energies of gratitude and love will help calm a more explosive version of your hurt.
If you feel like you have nothing to be grateful for, keep looking further. There are plenty of joys within your life that your negative emotions often disguise. For example, did you have a nourishing breakfast this morning? Then you have something to be thankful for! Have you ever had a rewarding conversation with a loved one that made you see them with new eyes? Then you have something to be thankful for!
Focus on these positive, rewarding experiences first and foremost, then express your feelings openly and honestly. With an attitude of gratitude for all that you have, you will feel confident in your right to express how you feel.
In his poem, why did Blake readily tell his anger to his friend? He cared about his friend and was grateful to have him, so he wanted to diffuse his anger right away. However, when it came to Blake’s foe, he was not so grateful and, instead, suffered greatly as the bitterness and anger became a poison tree within his soul.
Remember, your spirit remains within you and affects how you think, feel, and act. So seek peace within your heart and mind with the power of gratitude!
