Hope you have a safe Memorial Day weekend. 

Memorial Day, which falls on the last Monday of May, commemorates the men and women who died while serving in the American military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, at least, it marks the beginning of summer.

Please remember those who have died in our nation's service.

I apologize for the double email I sent out earlier titled, It's Not Your Fault, Understanding Emotional Programming With Weight Loss.  I didn't realize at the time that I sent out a test version of the link.  Here is the corrected link http://www.deniseempowers.com/dp in case you missed it earlier.

As you will see, this newsletter is loaded with information.  Our team is working overtime to accommodate all the requests, suggestions and topics of interest.  Thank you for your continued support and patience. 

If you would like to share your expertise, skills or talents with us and become part of the Empowering Potential network, please complete a contact form by clicking here or email me with details of your offer at denise@empoweringpotential.com.

I will personally respond to all correspondence within 24 hours.  Your support is appreciated!  Thank you in advance.

You Are Here!!!

by Denise Palmisano

Take a deep breath and imagine that you are somewhere in this picture.  Allow yourself to actually visualize where you would be and what you would be doing.

Now answer these questions.
  • Exactly where would you be?  Would you be in the shade, in the sun, under a tree, in the water, on the beach, on a boat or in the sky?
  • Would you be peaceful just taking in the scenery, laying on the beach, merrily sailing along?  Would you be uncomfortable and hot, cranky because sand got in your shoes or agitated for lack of things to do or occupy your time? 
  • Would you be wishing you could stay forever or ready to pack your bags and leave?
  • Are you experiencing peace, calmness, restlessness or anxiety?
If I were able to gather all of your answers, I would probably hear different opinions, different experiences, different interpretations of where people are, what is available to them and whether or not that works for them.

The same is true in life and the situations and circumstances you see in your life.  Events happen and you are the one that attaches the meaning to it.  Your interpretation, your attachments and your programming have you see it and respond to it one way or another.  There is no reality except the one you impose on the situation.  Someone else may see it differently.  That doesn't make either one of you right, wrong, good or bad.  There is no universal truth of right, wrong, good or bad

I challenge you to bust through one of your limitations right now and free yourself from the suffering, anxiety or stress you might be experiencing due to your limited interpretations, beliefs or attachments.  Since you get to make up a story about it, you might as well make up one that is powerful and forwarding.
  • What's the pay off in making everything a problem?
  • What are the costs of making everything a problem?
  • How do you rob yourself of peace, calmness, serenity, joy, gratitude and stillness?
I invite you to look at the YOU ARE HERE in your life situations and ask yourself;
  • How has my interpretation or perception of the situation limited or enhanced what is available to me?
  • If I am not where I want to be, then what is my biggest obstacle in changing my scenery?
  • What thought, belief, attachment, interpretation or action would I have to surrender or let go of this week to change my scenery?
Congratulations for going inside to hear your answers and trusting that you have all you need to change your scenery in your inner reality so that it can be reflected back to you in your outer reality.  This is what I call inside out transformation. 

It is your inner reality that dictates how you see your outer reality.  As you integrate the insight from your exploration, you are choosing to take responsibility for your reality which will ultimately free you from your self imposed limitations.
