What is a Sensuous Life Coach?

What Is A Sensuous Life Coach?
~  A guide to help you get in touch with your Inner Wisdom and Sensuous Self
~  A partner in discovering, defining, and creating the life you want
~  A personal trainer to help you achieve your goals    

 Being your own Sensuous Life Coach means that you work toward discovering, defining, and creating the life that you want. You do this by listening to your Inner Wisdom, and doing what she says. First let’s define the words Inner Wisdom and Sensuous Self.          

Inner Wisdom …    

Your Inner Wisdom can be defined in many ways. It’s often called that“still small voice” . . . but I think of it as a quiet, and confident voice that is inside . . . that suggests that you might want to exercise . . . or perhaps it’s that part of you that makes good choices to help you stay healthy, both mentally and physically. You define what Inner Wisdom means to you. Your Inner Wisdom could be called, at least in part, your Inner Life Coach. Pay attention to messages from your Inner Life Coach if you want to make changes in your life. You can look at this part of yourself in any way that you want, but it is the Best Version of You.        

Sensuous Self . . .
Connecting to your senses with Awareness is what the Sensuous Self is all about. Your Sensuous Self is the sensitive, passionate person that you are underneath it all. . . . Paying attention to the input from your senses of sight, smell, taste, touch, hearing, hunger, thirst, balance, and pain is what keeps you in touch with your Sensuous Self.     Think about the excitement that young children have when seeing, hearing, tasting, touching, or smelling something new. They seem to use their whole body, and all of their senses to experience life. We used to do that too!     You can reconnect with your ability to experience the world around you by becoming aware of the input from your senses. Your  brain processes all of the input from your senses. Increased awareness of your senses can be the fuel you need to fire up your passion. This increased awareness can be learned, or more correctly, you can remember it. Learning to reconnect with your Sensuous Self is an important part of becoming the passionate, sexy, sensuous person that you want to be.    

This is the beginning of my soon to be published book…within the next month!

Get Off of the Sugar “Roller Coaster”

A Sensuous Woman doesn’t need sugar to be sweet! Sugar is sweet, but what it does to your body is evil. When you eat white sugar, your pancreas goes a little crazy.  The job of your pancreas is to send out insulin to help your body utilize sugar.  It takes one molecule of insulin to move one molecule of sugar out of the blood stream, and into a cell.  “The Roller Coaster Effect” happens because white sugar is an unnatural food.  What I mean is that white sugar is so processed that it has lost all of the vitamins, minerals, and fiber that were present in it when it was in its natural state. This unnatural substance (white sugar) causes your body to overreact. As soon as you eat the sugar, your blood sugar level goes sky high. At this point, the pancreas freaks out (because it’s job is to send out insulin to keep the blood sugar at a reasonable level), and it sends out too much insulin to take care of the sugar. What happens next is that too much insulin is produced, and it causes your blood sugar level to drop very quickly. And, when your blood sugar level drops, you feel hungry, and will often reach for something sweet to help you feel better quickly. Wow!  It’s easy to see how this vicious cycle is unhealthy for your mind and body.

 Sugar causes many health problems.  Here are a few:

~    Causes weight gain, and promotes fat production

~    Drives heart disease

~    Leads to metabolic syndrome and diabetes
~    Elevates insulin in the blood which can contribute to the development of cancers         

~    Is addictive, due to the high level of dopamine that is produced in the brain when you eat sugar 

The bottom line is that you need to avoid white sugar products as much as possible.

My solution is to use Stevia.  Stevia is the best sugar substitute. It’s extracted from the sweet leaves of the Stevia plant.  It comes in powder and liquid forms.  I prefer the liquid extract.  Some extracts contain a tiny amount of alcohol, so read the label, or buy the powder form if you want it to be alcohol free.  Giving up sugar is one of the best ways to become the Sexy, Sensuous, Healthy Woman you want to be.

Be the Change that you wish to see in the World!

    “Be the change that you wish to see in the World.” (Gandhi paraphrased)
It’s hard to believe sometimes, but you really do have an impact on the World. I believe that it’s one person at a time that works best.           

    SHARE KNOWLEDGE ~ If you know something that can help change someone’s life, and you have the opportunity to tell them . . . Do it!   That’s what I do for a living . . . in three different places (at this point in time)  I work with Adolescents in a Psychiatric Unit, I am a Health and Wellness Life Coach, and I’m writing a book called, “Be Your Own Sensuous Life Coach for Women Over 40” (and Younger Women who want to know stuff sooner).  

Over the years, I’ve “taken notes” on what works, and what doesn’t work.  I teach teens how to become the person they want to be, and help them work through issues that have caused them to use unhealthy, coping skills.  Teens often feel a sense of powerlessness in regards to what is happening in their world, and in the great big world as well.   They often feel that there is nothing they can do to help themselves, or anyone else.   Education is powerful.  I explain to these kids that they can learn the things that everyone needs to know about what it takes to be happy. Then, they can be a role model for their families, and, to an extent, for everyone they come in contact with.  I tell them that just like Twitter and the Internet in general, many things can go viral.  This includes really helpful information.  If they learn something that helps them be happier and they share it with someone, that is the first step toward making that knowledge go viral.  Even just being nice to someone while you are checking out at the grocery may have an impact on their day, which will help them, and possibly others they come in contact with. . . .  

I also work with Adults . . . Mostly Women in my Life Coaching business.  I teach them Health and Wellness stuff, and to make it seem like more fun, I decided to specialize in being a Sensuous Life Coach . . . which is a concept that I created because I thought that it would catch someone‘s interest and is a personal interest of mine.  My focus is, in particular,on the Woman who wants to be more in touch with her Inner Wisdom and Sensuous Self.  Since I have been a writer for a very long time, and I’m Creative and Sensuous myself, I decided that I had to write the book.  The book is meant to be Fun and Playful, and it is written with a new thought or idea on each page.  This concept is great for the busy Woman.  You can open the book anywhere, and read any page whenever you have 5 minutes.  The things that I wrote are meant to help you become the person that you want to be, and to help you change the world by working on yourself. I am hoping that you will find things in my book that will make you happier, and that you will share this information with others. This is one way that you can change the world
  So Remember, “Be the change that you wish to see in the World.”
