ARTICLE: The Good Gossip of Inner Beauty

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

 

 

“Gossip,” as defined by Wikipedia, is idle talk or rumor, especially about the personal or private affairs of others. It derives from the bedroom at the time of childbirth when the pregnant female’s relatives and neighbors (an all female event) would gather and chatter about others outside the birthing room.  The term is often used to refer to the spreading of dirt and excited details of scandals.  On the flip side, gossip can also be used to contribute to social bonding.  With the technology of the computer and internet, gossip can spread in an instant.

 

So what kind of messages about others do we want to spread like wildfire in our world today?  Aw come on, Coach Betty, it is so much fun to talk about other people and get all the juicy details of their struggles! Right?  I say wrong, because I am a part of creating a new positive consciousness, and the drama of negative gossip becomes an obstacle to the needed collaboration in solving the crisis level of problems today. If we are going to live, not just talk about, a new vision of a healthy and balanced planet for people on the planet, then we must STOP the addiction to “needing to know” the inner scum of other people’s life.  We are human, after all, and not a single one of us can claim perfection to my knowledge. So would you like your dirty laundry hanging in the air?

 

Women created the word for gossip, and now I want to invite and encourage women to foster the good gossip that is an actual path to inner beauty. I love playing with the positive sides of what words mean.  How can we turn “gossip” into that social bonding experience that creates good juice on the planet and spreads near and far with a click?

 

For starters:

 

  • Taken from an old saying my mother drummed into my head “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
  • When you share anything at all about another, evaluate where the information comes from.  Does it come from your own personal experience, another person who may or may not have gotten the facts straight, or from a media source.  Remember, it is not illegal to present false news. 
  • When you have spoken about someone who is not present and accounted for, how does it make you feel inside? Do you feel relaxed, calm and at peace or do you feel tense, tight and uneasy?

 

Inner beauty is felt as a peaceful relaxation, and your body knows it if you tune in.  Are you are spreading the good word, or contributing to more chaos and havoc among us? Spread the good word, and let’s take this opportunity to transform the world into what is possible!

 

If you resonating with this article, then YOU are a beautiful soul I want to know about so I can spread the good word about you.  Join my newsletter at CoachBettyLIVE.com by entering your name and email in the upper right hand corner of this page, and/or “Like” my fan page at www.facebook.com/coachbetty, and let me know more about you. Who knows, you may just end up on the radio with CoachBettyLIVE.

ARTICLE: Honoring Male/Female Differences

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Have you ever experienced an encounter with the opposite sex where you felt like you were communicating so precisely, in direct language, and your intentions were completely misconstrued? Okay…it is a rhetorical question.  How can we learn to understand and honor our differences with love, compassion and an open heart?  My intention with the following essay on men and women is to open the conversation in a healthy way.

Masculine and Feminine characteristics are clearly very different energies.  A man who exudes strong masculinity is often a lone wolf, independent, competitive, physically strong, forgetful, logical, tough, and acutely self aware.  And what I mean by acutely self aware is a focus on taking care of his needs without consideration of what his female companion might need.  Some call this self-centered, and I don’t as it is too negative for the many good things about taking care of your own needs.

What you will notice with a women who lives from an extreme feminine place is a gentle collaborator, nurturing, loving, adapting, empathizing with a relaxed receptivity to change.  Often women are co-dependent because they receive what comes to them with the intention of nurturing and loving it back into balance.  It’s a woman’s intuition that allows her to feel what is out of balance.  The generous way a woman serves in this capacity is a beautiful thing. However, if a woman is not tuned into her own needs and inner nature or intuition, life can easily become unhealthy in relationship with a man. 

 

This is far from an exhaustive list of characteristics, and yet the stark contrast of  energies is apparent. We all carry both energies within, and each person has a unique spot on the spectrum from extreme masculine to extreme feminine. From the extremes noted here, it is a no wonder women lose their identity in relationships, and men are so confused by women and their flip flop behavior.

 

From this woman’s perspective, I have displayed the feminine characteristics noted above for most of my life.  I want a man to honor all the aspects of my softer and nurturing approach to life and relationships. My experience is that men love my femininity during sensual and sexual times, and then “don’t get too emotional on me now” can be the refrain when I have overextended my empathizer and need some time to recenter myself. 

 

As I understand men and their energies, I see a strength in mind and body men possess that is calming and peaceful to my inner soul. There is a determination that I admire from the toughness and competitive male stance.  Forgetfulness is a vulnerable and innocent place that has a sweet honesty.  These are the perceptions and attitudes I am embracing to fully appreciate and love our amazing men.

 

We need to take responsibility individually for the impact of our own true nature and rebalance ourselves. The world needs our best efforts. I am curious how our communication would change with the ability to stand in each other’s shoes, and see the positive side of our opposing characteristics?

 

What do you do to honor others?

WHOA Baby#5: Making Fraud Organic and Orgasmic

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

As promised, I am writing today to share more about my fraud experience in the hopes that it can save someone else from going through this very humiliating process. The data on fraud surprised me, and became a WHOA Baby.

“Fraud is considered white collar crime. An Illinois survey shows that 55.2% said that fraud crimes do more to undermine the morality of society than street crimes. More money is lost through white collar crime than as a result of street crime. National survey of fraud victimization show the total annual losses exceed $40 billion.”

This is from a report “Personal Fraud: the victims and the scams,” by Richard Titus of the National Institute of Justice.

Why did I get victimized?  What I have reflected upon is as follows:

1)  I was careless…my message is one that I believe anything is possible.  I believe in miracles and was convinced it was my time to receive one.  Because of that I did not thoroughly investigate the sources offering me this incredible opportunity.

2)  I am not aware of these scams as I rarely listen to news.  I stopped watching news regularly as a means to stay more positive, and create a healthy and uplifting world for myself.

3)  I was susceptible to this offer because it touched me so deeply in my heart.  The thought that I could be paid well to coach small groups of people who do not have access to such services was a miracle I wanted to believe in.

4)  I am a risk taker, and therefore even more susceptible to these crimes.

5)  Scams like this play on a person’s compassion and generosity and I fell for it hook, line and sinker, as they say.

6)  Shocking, but true, 10-20% of people victimized in this way have chronic health problems and those vulnerable are the best targets.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU SUSPECT FRAUD:

1)  Do your due diligence in investigating those in question.  Call and speak to a live person, look at websites, get name, address, phone numbers.

2)  DO NOT accept money orders.  Tell them to make a wire transfer right into your account.

3)  Insist on US checks

4)  Do not rely on your bank for the best information.  IF you deposit checks or money orders, be specific when the checks will clear NOT when the money is available.

The Organic and Orgasmic nature of this is that I am not resisting the truth, and am authentically sharing the story.  Life is rich and juicy in many ways!

If this information helps 1 person…it will have been a good day!

WHOA Baby #3 – SEX boosts Self-Esteem

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

Boosting self-esteem was one of 237 reasons people have sex, collected by the University of Texas researchers published in the “Archives of Sexual Behavior.”

Gina Ogden, PhD who is a marriage and family sex therapist, finds that those who already have self-esteem say they sometimes have sex to feel even better.  ”One reason people say they have sex is to feel good about themselves.”  Great sex begins with self-esteem.  If the sex is loving, connected and what you want, it raises it.”

This is why I am so passionate about helping women rediscover their beauty and sexuality so that they fall in love with themselves every time they look in the mirror.   Imagine how your enjoyment of sex would change if you always felt good about YOU…and then having sex made you feel even better!  Now that’s a WHOA BABY!

What if you felt beautiful and sexual with anyone, anytime and anywhere?  How would your life be different?
