MLB Week 5 of 8: Napa Community and Open Hearts

Hi There,  Rhea here.

This is a message from the heart updating friends and family on our situation as we are evacuated during the Napa fires, as well as a front lines heart message of the continuation of the study of our human family broken open hearts.

We are in the midst of our My Love Bomb Program and continued to hold space for one another during the week as our Napa group had to be on hold but our other groups still happened.  I held our group community call On Monday night after having had a crazy night of evacuation for our family the night before.  I am grateful for the community I host, and, am a part of.

My the My Love Bomb and You Matter community's Love continue to amplify, grow, and light us up.

Big Love,

Rhea

MLB Insider's Scoop Week 4 of 8: Trauma as Transformation

Hi There, Rhea here.

What a week in the world.  This has been a heart breaking week for us in the U.S. with another mass-murder.  Wow, writing those words makes it sink in even more.  I hate that since the making of this film there have been so many moments where the mission of the healing we were demonstrating is so stupidly relevant.  

When we were filming the interview of Marilyn Schlitz and Dean Radin we turned on our phones in between to find out that Sandy Hook had happened.  My face was already on fire from a combination of reaction to a facial the day before (I had woken with it swelled up all around) and the news that week that mom's cancer had metastasized.  

Life sometimes seems to just keep kicking us in the ass instead of taming down to a calm keel.  And the story of when it rains it pours, well, that happened this past month as well.

In the depths of the fact that part of life is trauma, and these traumas are a combination of human caused, human behavior related, and nature taking it's course, we have chosen to address the possibility of trauma as a transformational process within the My Love Bomb Program, and, inside of the film Love Bomb itself.

In fact, if you are looking for a full injection of the hope inside of humans, and our capacity to heal and transform, after you watch the clip, watch the film, it's free here.

Angels are all around us in the form of human helpers, we are stronger than we think, and pain is an indication of the need for healing, and healing is a form of transformation.  There is also no road to healing that I know of that doesn't involve moving through the pain to get to the other side.  If you need to feel uplifting possibility, tune in to the good that being shared about all of the human helpers that put their lives on a limb to help out on Monday in Las Vegas.  The good ones outweigh the bad, and we can heal from this, and hopefully, embody the vulnerable journey of becoming Love Bombers.

In fact, I'm going to share what that means right here in terms of our values, because, it takes grit, courage, and community to be open hearted and loving in the face of what life is asking of us:

  • We practice unconditional Love.

  • We empower and take care of ourselves so that we can do the same for others.

  • We believe everyone has inherent value and gifts to offer the world.

  • We anchor to the heart.

  • We are stronger together.

  • We forgive each other and ourselves.

  • We accept responsibility for our actions and their impact on others.

  • We find power on the other side of our vulnerability.

  • We have fun.  ;)  

  • We take a stand.

  • We achieve our vision with grit and healthy endurance.

Together we stay alive, we stay human, which means a willingness to break open instead of break down and shut down.  The lotus blossoms from the murky waters, and we can do that individually and collectively.  

Meanwhile, as my dear friend and My Love Bomb Facilitator Dr. Lauren Clum would say, you all are in my love bubble, so if you need some extra encouragement or hand holding during this time, reach out by connecting over at our Facebook group, You Matter International.

Big Love!

MLB Week 2 of 8 Insider's Scoop: Building Harmony as an Element of Love

Hi!  Rhea here with this week's My Love Bomb Program insider scoop, as I work to bringing you applicable content while running the eight week program.

Last night's small group portion in Napa brought me so much ease, connection, support, encouragement.  Oh my gosh, basically, the best of what can happen when women come together in a calm space and drop into being.

I'm bringing you a continuation from last week's theme of "asking" with the next steps of action, identifying harmony, innate trust, and finding life momentum.

With so much to attend to in terms of the loving service we can provide to hold up one another when we have fallen, or the world has crumbled a bit around us, it's vital to do the work to be standing love bombers capable of offering clear vibrations of uplifted love and insight.

We need to be leaders in our own lives whenever possible, so that we can be more effective love bombers when nature is calling, which, she is.

I hope this helps you build more ease and harmony inside of your body, your mind, your life, your community, and our collective humanity.

Big Love,

Rhea

 

Ready for a Mini-Journey? My Love Bomb Program Week 1 of 8

Hi There!  It's Rhea and I am fresh inside of Week 1 of the My Love Bomb Program after months of preparations.  Last night's group experience in Napa was so wonderfully heart warming.  I feel an instal-boost of relaxation into love, enough-ness, support, and being right here.  That combined with the group call from Monday night where we instantly saw just how not alone we are in our desires to serve, our sometimes isolation, our uncertainties of where we're heading, and our insta-tonified feeling from connection has me feeling ready to share the experience with you in a mini-version.

Me and the rest of the facilitators will be letting you in on min-bits of what we are doing each week while inviting you to join us with a little exercise that can help you to pause, soften, open, listen, and expand into the next evolutionary level of you.

This week we're asking you to take a pause of intentional self love and love of others, use that to intention to open up.  Then, in a relaxed way, listen to the little "anxious tugs" inside if yourself, allow them to bubble forward as a question.  Write those questions down.  That's it!  No answer finding, no goal setting, just, what is my question?

From questions come answers, steps, and the light becomes shined on stagnancy so that momentum of healing and change and answers can begin.  

I'll be back next week with another step, and I'll also be sharing these inside of the You Matter International Facebook group where other women like you are hanging out.

Big Love!

Rhea

Are You Worth It?

Are you worth it?

 

Today’s message is a brave one for me to share, however, the desire to be of service to those who need to hear it is winning.

Check it out.  I come to you a woman who has experienced the need to advocate for herself inside of her marriage and family life to say “this is valuable to me, end of story, I am worth it” when it comes to asking for time or money towards something that will benefit me.  I also come to you as a provider of “alternative” to mainstream culture offerings such as chiropractic for whole person healing and personal growth seminars for 11 years.

I have felt and seen similar patterns and that’s what I am talking about today.

The pattern is this:  our families tend to have value systems, whether they are spoken or not.  Maybe we value vacations, maybe we don’t.  Maybe we value proactive health and wellness care.  Maybe we don’t.  Maybe we value personal time.  Maybe we don’t.  Maybe we value personal growth.  Maybe we don’t.  You get it.

Well, I am promoting something here- it’s valuing the truth of one another’s hearts.  Even if where they are being innately led to is “not going to work.”  Change is unknown.  New paths are unknown.  What if it’s okay to try something new?  

Okay, I’m not advocating huge investments of time or money that totally disrespects the needs of the family members.  I am advocating a freedom to look at supporting things that might be outside of the norm of what would be valued in order to try expanding into a framework of family and personal values towards personal growth, health, and well-being.

So what is it that you are valuing?  Where is your heart leading you?  Are you worth it?  If not now, then when?

Don’t wait until it’s a fire.  Pay attention to your heart’s desire while it’s a little flame, and honor that in those that you love!  Then it’s a fire of a lit up life, versus a crew in crisis.

Big Love!

Rhea

 

When Good Change is Scary, Keep Going

"You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore." - Andre Gide.

One of the most transformational experiences of my life was sailing out to the open ocean and losing sight of the shore for the first time, knowing I'd see land two weeks later. This was pre-internet connections! Watch if you need a trust the process pep talk, a few new ideas to understand your own change process (pain, discomfort, fear, muck), and encouragement for a loving container in the process.

The Healing Power of Unconditionally Loving Acceptance in a Group

Hi!  It's Rhea and to those of you amazing people who just joined in on this newsletter list through the Open Hearted Life Challenge and Mile High, welcome!  I am so happy to bring you content that inspires, connections, and encourages healing.

To those who didn't just join, I'm back!  I have to say, I apologize for being out of touch for a moment there!  Between hosting the Open Hearted Challenge which a lot of you were a part of, and preparing to head out to Mile High in Colorado to present to the conference, my hands were really full.

It's been a powerful month of healing, landing in the heart, and connecting with incredible people.  The conference in Colorado was very heart touching as I got to be with so many others who are dedicated to touching people's lives for the better.

I presented on three things:  1.  That you are enough as is.  2.  The healing power of "Awe" (getting small to find your big), and 3. The healing power of coming together into an empowered community dedicated to unconditionally loving acceptance.

Number three isn't easy to sustain, but wow is it incredible to create and live in for the times that we can.

We are coming close to the healing container that is the My Love Bomb Program running September 11-November 3rd, and it is set as a healing space for women to come together in total acceptance as they open up to their core empowered truth, finding their unique voices, and giving those to life.  

We have groups filling up in Arcata, Oakland, S. San Francisco, Tacoma, Denver, and Napa with more to come in February.    To join one of those, head right here.

We also have incredible women joining in from a distance as prospective facilitators looking to go through profound growth themselves, while bringing the program to their community in 2018.  If you are interested in that path, reply to this email and let's be sure to talk soon as registration closes September 8th.

Thank you for being a part of this greater "You Matter" community!  If you'd like to engage with our group, head over and join us on Facebook. 

I'm happy to be connecting with more and more of you over there, and have plans brewing for more fun and connection with you there.

Big Love to you!

Rhea

The Power of Words (And Forgiveness)

This week I had the healing grace of being invited to share some My Love Bomb style activities with a group of moms and 2nd grade girls.

It was so sweet to hear their shares and learn from each woman and girl there as well all expanded on our own awareness of the power of words, how we all sometimes say the wrong ones and regret it later, and the need for forgiveness in our lives.

It's simple, short, and sweet.

Also, coming so soon!  The launch and registration for the Open Hearted Life Challenge later this July.  I'm so excited.  We will be doing a lot of hanging out inside of the You Matter International Facebook Group (forming now) as we do this challenge, so if you care to join us, head over there now.  It will get going in earnest July 10th when I am home from my next round of "the Komarek's head to the Mountains" for a week.

Big Love!

Rhea

Done Is Better Than Perfect (Imperfect Steps Lead to Results and Refinement)

Hi There!  It's Rhea here!  Whew!  I have been go-fight-win in getting us ready to launch the registration for the My Love Bomb Program and the Prospective Facilitator's Path and as such I have missed connecting to you all for a few weeks!

I'm back and I'm excited to be heading into the next steps towards getting to connect with all of you more in person.  I've got the You Matter International Facebook Group opened up and slowly growing as we head into July where I'll be launching an Open Hearted Life Challenge for us all to do together.

Meanwhile, here we are.  Done is Better Than Perfect.  I'm not sure if it's my life experience, or becoming a mommy, but embracing this principle has become liberating on so many levels.  Dropping the expectation of self-perfection, letting go of that inner critic's grip, and therefore also becoming way easier on those in my life, has been life changing.  It enhances my relationship with myself, has exploded my soul fulfilling relationships within my life, and is a huge source of happiness and love magic inside of my family.

Have a look!

Love,

Dr. Rhea 

You Can't be in Growth and in Protection at the Same Time

Hi There!  Rhea here with a topic close to my heart.

The truth is, no matter where you are in life, if you are open to the fact that life is actually a cyclical process of renewal, which means change, then you, like me, vacillate between embracing that process of growth, and shuttering from it in protection.

While I believe that the models of nature provide us with the realities to harmonize with, versus battle, which means protection is a part of our lives for a reason, I also know as a chiropractor that the ramifications of living in protection (constant fight or flight nervous system response) mean that it is not a system we were designed to live in full time.

Bruce Lipton, Cellular biologist, also looks at how our bodies can't thrive in growth on a cellular level while they are busy in protection chemistry.

For this reason, it is imperative to create life strategies for noticing the fear, handling it, and then moving forward in trust of our growth choices, especially during the bigger "chapter changes" of our lives!

Hopefully this video is a little inspiration in that direction for you!  And,...looking forward to launching our virtual community soon for more connection and support on this topic.

Love,

Rhea

The Power of an Empowered Community

It's Rhea here and this week I'm thinking a lot about the power of Faith in oneself, and in another human being.  We've been focusing on it as facilitators in our My Love Bomb  Program facilitator training.

It is incredible to me how much more I can shine in the light of faith from another person, than in the shadow of doubt.

I find this to be powerful both one on one with others in my life, as well as in community.

I am very excited to be able to engage more in community with YOU, my virtual community with an upcoming launch of the "You Matter International" FB Group.  I have some fun invitations planned for a summer launch where I can begin to get more into circle with those of you engaged right here!

Stay tuned for a June launch.

Meanwhile, have faith, in yourself, and someone else.  Sometimes this requires forgiveness, and discernment, and yet even within that paradox, faith heals.

Love, Rhea

When fear gets in the way, stay in your lane.

Hi everybody, it's Rhea. This week I'm sharing one more tool I use for staying in my lane. This means knowing what I want to focus on, what is important to me, and using that focus to steer me away from the fears and the doubts that can penetrate my deepest desires. 

I hope that this quick message is a reminder about your truest most beautiful, talented, and divine self. I also hope that it inspires you to continue moving forward in the direction of your dreams. It is an honor to walk with you on this empowered path.

From Envy to Inspiration

Hi All!

Okay, I loved getting to ponder this one!  And, I loved that the question came from our community.  When I was asked how I deal with Envy I got to really think about this natural method of being able shift into Inspiration.

Since we are creative beings, almost all of us can say there are things we admire in others that we just don't feel we have developed or created yet in our own lives.  Being able to shift into inspiration is just one way to handle this feeling.

 

Dream It, Wish It, Do It

Do you hold a dream in your heart of what you want to create?  In my experience, you can create profound results in the direction of your dreams by taking on step at a time.

I created "The Balanced Life" course as a simple way to move in this direction.  You can sign up at www.BlossomLife.com

Yay! My life/body/relationship/friendship is falling apart! (Said nobody, ever.)

Hi There!

It's Rhea here with this week's Love Bombers podcast episode.  Today I'm speaking after a re-inspiration from the review of a talk that I gave back in 2013 at The Wave, a large chiropractic event.  

You can actually watch it right here (note the start gives a vision of where I initially set out to go with the film, and while Oscors didn't end up our path, lol, all of that determination certainly led me here to the My Love Bomb path and what an inspiring discovery it continues to be!)

The primary theme is, what happens when something in our life feels like it is falling apart?  How can we find our ground, and then choose a viewpoint that will assist us in building the next steps of our lives?

"Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction." -Pablo Picasso (as seen on Restoration Hardware's construction site!).

Wishing everyone a huge dose of springtime inspiration for the budding next chapters of your lives, no matter what reorganization might be occurring!

Big Love,

Dr. Rhea Zimmerman Komarek
