De-Stress Tips and News 5

New Beginnings

On a Personal Note........

This New Year started for me with heightened
feelings of possibility and excitement.

I spent New Year's Eve with some special friends.
Barbie, who is also a life coach, asked each of
us what our intention is for this year. My intention
is to "value my expression". As soon as I made
that statement it felt very powerful, almost like it
had taken on a life of its own.

Since then, I created a Vision Board with eleven
fabulous women at the Women's Retreat and
started to write several books.

The power of our thoughts to become reality is
the focus of this month's De-stress Tips & News.

What are your desires? What do you want to
manifest in your life this year?

Check out the article on how to make your own
Vision Boards. See our Spotlight on a young
man whose vision is becoming reality. Let the
quotes inspire your imagination.

I'm visioning a brilliant year for each of us!

(1) Tip

Thoughts are Things

As the New Year starts, we think of new beginnings.
New Year stimulates new goals, new dreams, new
resolutions and more.

Remember, when you formulate a new thought,
entertain a new dream, or choose a new goal,
your thoughts are energy. The photons of
thought "leave" you and go out, in every direction,
to the farthest corners of the planet.

Thoughts carry a life force all their own, like ripples
created when a pebble is tossed into a pond. You
can use this to your advantage by choosing your
thoughts wisely.

` Positive or negative, thoughts manifest as real
creations in your life.

(4) Spotlight on You

Brian Reed is a brilliant young artist who overcame
significant trauma and discouragement through the
power of his dream.

He took both Reiki and EFT classes and committed
to a long term coaching process to reclaim his dream.

I highlighted a few points in his narrative that I think are
important to our focus in this newsletter.

Here is what Brian has to say:

"Aila and I connected at a very troubling period in
my life. I was 22, and recovering from many physical
injuries and illnesses afflicting my body. I broke my
Back in 5 places a week after graduating James
Madison University with a BFA in Studio Art and was
temporarily paralyzed for over a year. The accident
was so severe my entire immune system collapsed
and I began a fight for my life. My path in life had
been taken out of my hands and I listed aimlessly
with only traces of my former hopes and dreams in
my mind of pursuing my art.

At the darkest hour, I drove to a friend's house
asking for help. I told my friend that I knew there
is more for me, I knew life could be better, and
I am willing to do whatever it takes to take
charge of my life and begin to choose for myself
my fate. My friend drove me to my first session
with Aila.

. Through our coaching sessions, I was able to sort
through my life, and discover my true calling in life.

I wanted to make art that would be consciousness
raising work. I explored many options and my path
took me to Yale University to work as a Special
Fellow with experts like Mary Miller and Robert
Thompson. I moved to New York City and set up a
studio in Harlem. I commute to Yale for lectures
and am now showing my art in New York City and
Los Angeles, all within 18 months of first meeting Aila.

EFT, Reiki, and Personal coaching with Aila Accad
transformed my life by giving me the tools to pursue
my dreams"

(5) Q & A

Q How do you find the confidence to BEGIN when
you realize that starting is the number one thing
holding you back?

A You have identified the main reason most of us
give up on our dreams. As soon as you imagine
starting something new, your conditioned mind
comes up with all the reasons it is not a good

Overcoming the inertia of the conditioned mind
requires lots of energy. That energy comes from
your desire and passion for your dream.
Why do you want to begin something new in your
life? Your "Why" must be bigger than your fear.

This is the driving force that overcomes all obstacles.
Find your "Why" and keep it in front of you to fuel
your journey.

Transform Your Dreams into Reality with a Vision Board.

"Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what
you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last you create
what you will."
George Bernard Shaw

You can use a vision board as a tool for transforming your
imagination into creation. Everything is created in the mind
first and then in tangible form. A vision board can help you
to manifest what you want to create. more....
