Are your emotions making you sick?

Tamra MerciecaMental Health2 Comments

Emotions are ‘energy in motion’. When we store negative emotions in the body – for example, anger, fear, guilt or shame – they sicken the body.

build self-confidence

Relationships are delightfully fulfilling at their best and gravel-rash painful at their worst.

‘I can’t (insert desire)’. Sure you CAN!

Tamra MerciecaMental HealthLeave a Comment

What happens when you say you ‘I can’t do it’? It automatically sets up an expectation that you can’t do whatever it is that you would like to do.

The intuitive power of the heart

Tamra MerciecaRelationship HealthLeave a Comment

Have you ever played Chinese whispers? One person whispers a message into the next person’s ear, then they do the same to the next person, and so forth, until the message finally gets around the circle and the last person announces the message they received.
