9 Steps to Amazing Results for 2017


Happy Holidays everyone!

For the past few years, I have set aside one day in late December with candlelight to envision my goals for the next year. It’s been a yearly ritual that has jump-started many amazing things in my life.

With the New Year right around the corner, we’re given another chance ENERGETICALLY to get even more amazing at living. There is an opening in our collective psyche that makes positive changes much more attainable.

Over the years, I have refined the process, and came up with what I call “Breakthrough to Amazing Results” with 9 steps. By following the process, you’ll lay the groundwork to create something extraordinary for you in 2017. Bring out a pen and paper, and come along for the ride…

  1. Set up a Sacred Space
    Spaces for rituals are important as they create a container for magic to happen. If you want and if it’s possible, light a candle. You can also ring a bell. Play some soft background music.
  2. Get Relaxed and Centered
    With Energy Exercise “Cradle Yourself”:

    • Place your right hand on your left shoulder and your left hand on your right shoulder.
    • Take a deep breath in, and breathe out slowly.
    • Take another deep breath in, breathing out slowly while placing your hands over your heart.
    • Close your eyes and affirm: “I’ll have an amazing, productive session for the next 30 minutes.”
    • Bring a smile to your lips.
    • Now, open your eyes.
  3. List Your Past Accomplishments:
    Make a list of your major achievements this past year, including things and events that made you happy. Include your good health, if that applies.
  4. Celebrate Yourself
    Sit quietly. Allow that sense of accomplishment to swell up and sink into your psyche. Now, tap on your 3rd eye, which is located between your eyebrows. Also make plans to physically celebrate, such as take a day trip to a park, or have dinner with friends.
  5. List Your Past Challenges
    Make a list of all the things you want to let go of, like challenges and obstacles that you’ve had in the past year (including events and emotions like: Bad knee. Incident in the gym, the car accident. Frustration. Sadness.)
    You can focus on one area, or alternatively, you can go through these areas:
    Health, including exercise and diet
    Family and friends
    Habits like smoking or spending
    Social engagements
    When you are done, you can burn the list and bury the ashes in your yard or at a park.
  6. Release the Past:
    With Energy Exercise – “Expelling the Venom”:

    • Sit up straight. Take a deep breath in. Breathe out slowly.
    • Make fists with both hands, with your palms facing up. In your fists, hold all your external and internal challenges, and your reactions to them from this past year.
    • Take another deep breath in slowly. Swing both arms up and out, with your fists facing the front.
    • Exhale, opening your fists and forcefully pushing them downward in front of you while making the ‘shhh’ sound. You are releasing all that you don’t want to keep for the New Year.
    • Repeat three more times.
    • When coming down the last time, allow your arms to come down slowly and deliberately.

    Now, tap on the top of your head: “I willing and easily release all blocks to a healthy, happy, and abundant life.”

  7. Affirm Your Vision
    Make a list of affirmations.
    Place your hands over your chest and recite each one 3 times. Here is a sample list:
    “I am healthy, wealthy, and happy.”
    “I have plenty of time to get everything done.”
    “I have plenty of energy to get through the day.”
  8. Set Your Goals
    Make a list of your goals. Be specific. That’s what triggers your psyche or subconscious mind to muster all your resources to help you succeed.
    “Lose 30 pounds by May 31.”
    “Exercise 3 times a day by February 1.”
    “Reduce smoking to 1 cigarette a day by March 31.”
  9. Welcome the Future
    Now, place your thumbs at the outer corners of your eyes, with your fingers over the hairline and hold.
    Affirm: “I easily accomplish all my goals. The universe comes together to support me!”

Armed with the solid foundation that you created with this process, you are now ready to go live with intention. Keep an eye on your goals. Go for a vibrant body, radiant health, and a fulfilled life.

Tips for a Stress-Free Thanksgiving

1 comment


Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Meal planning is fiercely underway. Festivity is in the air. All of the preparation can be very stressful, especially if you are hosting a large gathering at your place.

Then, there’s the gathering itself, the people, and the food. Will the food come out right? Will everyone get along? For some, there’s an added concern of indigestion and challenging bodily functions, even while our mouths water over the image of pies and turkeys.

With any feast, there are three essential bodily concerns: your energy level, your body’s ability to digest food, and your ability to withstand stress during family get-togethers and preparing for one of the year’s busiest meals!

To shape your digestion and prepare your body ahead of time, try some of these energy exercises to keep you relaxed and calm, so that you can really enjoy your Thanksgiving!

  1. De-Stress the Body
    To cope with the stress of food prep and intricate family dynamics, you can stroke the area behind your ears to calm yourself. This movement is similar to tucking your hair behind your ears. Do it as often as possible.
  2. Boost Energy For more energy to handle chores and guests, you can simply massage a couple of points under your collarbones. Locate the tip of the collarbone under your throat and, moving down and out an inch, massage the points on both sides of the body.
  3. Beef Up the Digestion
    To give your stomach a hand while it works overtime during this time of the year, massage the lower edge of your breast tissue, starting from the sternum (middle of the chest) and moving in a semi-circle to the sides of the rib cage. For women, this is the path along your bra line. For men, this is a half-moon area within two inches around your nipples.

Starting today, take some time every day to do these simple and quick exercises. When Thanksgiving rolls around, you’ll be equipped with both skills and a better body to really enjoy the gathering, the people and the food.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Post Surgery Recovery – A Powerful Story

This is a powerful story of a grandmother helping her two-year old granddaughter to achieve rapid post surgery recovery from a 4-hour surgery to the amazement of us all.

Jane, whose husband has been to my energy classes, and I met before the Christmas holiday 2015. Their two-year old granddaughter Christy was going to have her third surgery on the face/neck over the holiday. In passing I asked if she was willing to do some figure 8’s along the surgery line. She said that she would try. After New Year’s Day 2016 I received a grateful note from her on how smooth the operation/recovery was this time around. This is her recap of what happened when I asked if she would be willing to share their story.


Dear Dan,
Thanks for your note. I will be happy to share.
Christy was born with a branchial cleft cyst, unable to drain.

She would get ear infection, respiratory problems and pneumonia as well.

The surgeries were very delicate as they were on the face, going through nerves and arteries.

The first two 4-hour surgeries were unable to get all the cyst out. But coming out of the recovery and anesthesia were very rough – shaking – crying – fever and intense pain. She cried off and on all night

Here is the only way that I can describe her 3rd surgery on the 18th. She went in at noon and it was another 4-hour surgery. As she was waking up, they called us in recovery. As she woke, I immediately started with the 8’s. She would turn towards my hand and nod out again. That was actually the surgery side where she was bandaged. This lasted for 2 hours that I did the 8’s. She was in and out about 4 times.

She was then able to go to a room about 6:00 pm. I continued until she was awake. She only had 1 reaction and that was to the elastic from tape on her face. She did not cry for long which surprised us, as she was swollen and covered with the blotches. She was better within minutes. She calmed down with 2 chocolate milks and a popsicle. My husband and I were able to leave the hospital at 8:30 pm. Christy said “I go in your car Grandma!”

After we left I spoke to her mother the following day. We were pleased to hear she ate a full dinner and slept through the night.

One month later, all seems to be going well. I had to see it to believe it. My husband witnessed as well as her mother. I know it helped! Thanks so much.

Sincerely, Janet

Calming PTSD Symptoms: A 4th of July EEM Experience

This is a wonderful story of how several minutes of energy work at the right place and right time provides profound healing and changes someone’s life forever.

A few months ago, I went to a July 4th picnic dinner at a friend’s backyard that borders a golf course. Part of the appeal of the picnic was that you could see the city fireworks directly from the golf course.

One guest sitting at our table warned us that he suffered from PTSD, and when a neighbor set off some small fireworks, the guest became nervous and decided to go inside the house. The fireworks from the neighbor were sporadic, so after a while the guest came out thinking that he was fine — only to sit down on a tree frog, which sent him flying back inside the house.

He came back a while later, but soon after he sat down, the city’s fireworks started. He became so nervous that he got up and told us that he had to leave.

As the nervous guest was leaving, I said to an older gentleman sitting nearby that I knew something that could help. The older gentleman immediately stopped the departing guest saying that Dan (pointing to me) could help.

After obtaining permission from the guest, he sat back down at the table and I put my hands on the front and back of his head (holding the main NV points and Fire/Water NV points). The pulse came quickly to the forehead, and I was yawning already (my response to energy shifting), when he said, “Interesting. I can sense something shifting.”

The older gentleman went to use the restroom while I was holding the guest’s NV points, and by then the fireworks were non-stop. The energy shifted quickly (as I let out many more yawns), so I removed my hands and sat back down.

The guest was amazed that the bells and whistles of the fireworks no longer had any effect on him. Both of us were bubbling, happy, and laughing when the older gentleman returned from the restroom. It took less than two minutes for the shift to happen.

Needless to say, the guest stayed and enjoyed the whole fireworks show, which I found out later was a pretty big one since it was the city’s 100- year celebration!
