A Little Consideration Please!

38324-being-considerate-of-others

 

Your time is valuable….but so is mine.

Your needs are important….but so are mine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Being a small business owner I see, all too often, people forgetting that their own time is not more important than another’s. Cancelled appointments and no shows…not just me but many other small business owners and self employed professionals dealing with this. The appointments are made and the time is allotted for that client. Any needed preparation is made for the clients needs. Then you wait….and wait. You call to see it they got lost….they forgot or something else came up…”sorry”. Many professionals require deposits or payment in full when the appointment is booked but some…myself included… prefer to give the clients the benefit of the doubt that they will be responsible adults.

 

Dear clients…..

 

  1. Please try and remember when you are unable to make a scheduled time with a professional that they do have other clients too. Maybe another client needed that time you booked…but they were told the time was already taken.

 

  1. Please try and remember that a small business may be operating day to day and lost income…yes your missed appointment is lost income….can hurt quite a bit. You may think that your one appointment won’t make a difference…it does. Rescheduling or giving the professional the opportunity to fill the slot is important.

 

  1. Please try and remember that many of the professionals have taken time to prepare for your appointment…it’s not just the time they spend with you.

 

  1. Please try and remember that the professional may even worry when you aren’t there on time that you got lost or worse. They do care.

 

  1. Please try and remember that they respect your time and would call you ASAP if they had to change anything.

 

  1. Please remember above all that the professionals time is just as important as yours.

 

It’s simple…..call ahead of time if you can’t make it so the time can be filled with another client. Reschedule another time….we don’t mind.

 

Dear professionals…..

 

  1. Please remember to also remember the client’s time is just as important as yours. Don’t rush through the appointment to get to the next one. Allow enough time in between icase the client needs a bit more and to catch your breath so you’re not rushing into the next one already frazzled.

 

  1. Please remember to treat your client with respect & compassion. They are seeing you because they have a need.

 

  1. Please remember to be honest & fair with your client if you want them to return or spread the word how awesome you are.

 

We need each other. And we need to respect each other. Small business & self employed professionals can’t survive without the clients and they offer things that large business & franchise can’t offer the clients…..compassion, one on one full attention, genuine caring & much more.

 

Thank you,

Kat

Holistic is What?

shutterstock_29948326-366x366

Holistic is what? Have we forgotten? Is it really that important?
ho·lis·tic
adjective
PHILOSOPHY
adjective: holistic
  • characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.
    • MEDICINE
      characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the physical symptoms of a disease.

    *******************************************

    If we look way back….before society became one of an instant gratification need…..we’ll see that the treatment of illness & disease, whether physical, spiritual or mental was treated as a whole. It was understood that one needed to find the root cause and work on that first. In today’s treatment it has all been separated. Now we have physicians for the body, psychiatrists for the mind and spiritual counselors for the spirit. People want a quick fix and they expect it to be done for them. Society as a whole has given up the responsibility of their own well being to others…many (to be fair…not all) of whom are just worried about filling their bank accounts. Is this working? We see more and more disease and more repeated issues…or the treatment of one thing leads to other issues which now need attention. The commercials for all these new medications say a lot when they refer to all the “possible” side effects.

    “The greatest mistake physicians make is that they attempt to cure the body without attempting to cure the mind; yet the mind and the body are one and should not be treated separately!” ~ Plato

    Even so many years ago they understood that if you didn’t heal at the root of the issue then it would not be fully healed and would only resurface. Searching for the root cause and working on healing it is a cooperative & joint effort between the patient & the guide. I refer to the professional treating the patient as a guide because when it comes down to it…they are the one guiding the patient to find their own answers and to guiding them to do the work they need to do. It used to be one person that could work with the person in need of healing….a shaman, medicine woman/man, village elder, etc. They would work with the patient to find the root cause first and it would take time. Then the work on healing would start and the patient played a part in this….it wasn’t easy & it wasn’t instant…but once healed it lasted.

    Temporary healing isn’t the answer. Yes….there are times when immediate help is needed and medications are necessary but we can’t expect the body to completely heal if the mind & spirit isn’t also healed and visa versa. The easiest example to give is the health issues caused by stress. A man has heart disease due to stress and ends up with high blood pressure or worse yet needs heart surgery. The physical issue is taken care of in the moment but if the issue causing the stress isn’t dealt with. If the patient ISN’T taught to deal with the stress in a better way it will continue to be an issue for them and they could be in a worse situation later. If they ARE taught to understand the root cause and how to deal with it on a daily basis….to do the work themselves via meditation or relaxation techniques, etc….they will then treat the root cause and find their physical health improving. Stress is one of the biggest root causes of many illness & disease but there are many other things that could be at the root. Sometimes it could even be childhood issues that were never dealt with and have been held in festering and then developing into physical issues.

    Let’s get back to holistic and look at the whole picture. Long term healing is a much better option than quick fixes needed to be repeated over and over and causing even more issues that then need healing too. Let’s get off the hamster wheel and actual make progress! Take responsibility for your own wellbeing back! We still need the physicians and other professionals but don’t give them sole ownership of your health!

Energy Communication

Clairsentient

Energy Communicating

We communicate with each other in many obvious ways…..verbal, body language, written & much more. We tend to forget about some of the more “unseen & unheard” ways. The energy you put out also communicates with others. Just thinking positive or negative thoughts will affect others around you just as you are affected by those in your surroundings.

If you are empathic you are even more open to this way of communication. This can be a wonderful thing if you have control of it but on the other hand it can be confusing and overwhelming if you don’t understand it or even know what it means. For somebody that is empathically open, they can walk into a room feeling quite happy & joyful and then in a few moments then can be feeling angry, depressed or some other emotion. If they aren’t understanding that they are “hearing & feeling” somebody elses thoughts & emotions then they mistake them for their own and bam! How many times has this been mistaken for Bi-Polar or some other label?

Keep this in mind when you’re carrying negative thoughts also….there maybe others that are “hearing” you and being effected. Keeping your thoughts positive and upbeat is not only good for yourself but also for those around you.

These energy communications can be even stronger with those that are close to you….family, good friends, partners,etc. You create energy cords between you and your energy…be it positive or negative….will flow through those cords. Have you ever felt as though your partner is not really listening to you even though they can repeat the words you have said? Do you get a cold feeling with some people and a warm feeling with others? Have you ever felt really intimate with someone and feel that you know exactly what they are feeling or what they are going to say?

The energy is always flowing out around you…….. Keep those cords positive…when possible, remove ones that become negative or stagnant!

When was the last time?

funny_old_people_38

When was the last time you gave a smile or compliment to a complete stranger? When was the last time you received a smile or compliment from a complete stranger? When was the last time you (for those with children) remember letting the kids run around the neighborhood to play…knowing that the neighbors would all keep an eye out on them? How about even hearing about a community coming together to help one of their own through a crisis?

Community has changed so much. We used to not even hesitate to smile or compliment a stranger or flinch when we received any. Now it seems as if people assume you must either want something from them or are a touch out of your mind! We used to work together as a community to watch over each other and our children….now if you correct somebodies child to protect or teach them safety you have an angry parent on your hands! Now communities are more just a group of individuals keeping to themselves. 

There are still some amazing people out there that reach out to strangers, not afraid to watch over others children or pets and not afraid to be there to support neighbors going through a crisis….but you just don’t hear about it as much anymore. It’s such a shame that todays society has become so “me” oriented. One day things will come full circle and we’ll need to come together and work as a community again to survive. Don’t wait for that day…start practicing now so you’re ready! Reach out to a stranger….smile or say something nice…even if they look at you like you have 3 heads! Just do it….it feels good and who knows….we just start a new craze 🙂
