Synergy Success E-Zine, November 2012


"Just for Today, Do not be Angry...

Do not Worry, and be filled with Gratitude;

Devote yourself to your work, and Be Kind to others."

~ Reiki ideals



Greetings to YOU and a Warm Welcome to our community of high-achieving women who want to turn Stress into Strength at every opportunity!

Both Hurricane Sandy and a recent tragic car accident that claimed the lives of 2 local teenagers reminded me of something that we often forget on this fast-paced journey called life.


The Pause.


Yes, ladies. I'm reminded once again that it's absolutely crucial to pause, to take a breath, to look around and enjoy the NOW.


As you are.  With all of your faults and quirks and weaknesses, just enjoy today.


Today is all we have, and as cliche' as it may sound, we are all guilty of forgetting this important notion sometimes.  While we are busy completing projects and working on our confidence, taking a workshop or ticking off those steps to achieving our is happening.  Right. Now.


So, for  honor of those we love and causes we care about, take a break to give thanks and give back.  Focus not on how much you don't have, but on what you do have.  It's not always about money~~Donate a smile, a hug, or word of encouragement. Offering what you can from where you are to those in need will strengthen the belief in abundance, and the faith that there is always enough to go around. 


Remember that what we give out comes back to us like a boomerang.


So what do you say we generously give out the love that this world needs more of today?


I'm all in! How about you?


Wishing you well,

Christina's Story

"From Fear to Faith".

Synergy Success Story!

Lynette Johnson



"After 33 years of being an R.N. in Health Care Administration I had had "enough"!   Twin grandchildren were born, and I blanketed myself in helping to care for them. Then, after three years of intensive care, my mother died from complications of Alzheimer's Disease.


As a result of stress and emotional overload, I lost

much of my self-confidence. On the outside, my actions as an R.N., wife, and friend looked okay, but on the inside I was struggling. The thought that I might be getting Alzheimer's haunted me. I read self-help books; I used much of my energy in trying to concentrate, recall information, and in bolster myself up. I worked relentlessly to improve. Frequently, it seemed that I could not "do things right." Often I would consider -"if only I could find someone to help me "think", someone to help me sort through what was going on in my head, maybe I could be a more effective person, and could have more internal calm.


An article in Health Quest caught my attention! I began working with Christina and the synergy created between us helped me uncover my hope. She affirmed me as a person who was capable and worthy. She inspired me to lift up my head and my heart to pursue life. With her, I learned to implement tools, techniques, and ideas that helped me realize "I can manage my mind"; I can choose what I think and I can change my negative non-serving beliefs, and I can be stronger than I was before.


I learned to love and appreciate myself for the person I am. I received the help and support I needed. I am so glad that I kept hanging in there...that I did not give up!
