Vision Board

Our annual Vision Board Workshop was a great success! We LOVED our new spacious venue, Busy Bees Paper Crafting in Newbury Park!

It was so wonderful seeing the vision that each and every person had for their lives in 2018 and beyond!  The creativity and selection of perfect pictures and phrases to depict their visions was amazing! There was comradery and an overall friendly, relaxed environment. We have already saved the date for our annual event on Saturday, January 12th 2019!

Below are some reflections on this year’s event:

Most Meaningful Segment:
“Planning email & guided meditation. I like the spacious area/location!”
“Spending quiet time focusing on what I really want in life while creating my vision board!”

“My daughter gave this to me as a gift!” //  “Dreaming, visualizing, setting goals!”
“Thank you for the meditation – I love that – more empowered to achieve my goals for 2018!”
“Creating vision!”  //  “Cutting pieces out.”  //  “Guided meditation/intentionality!”  //  “The process.”

Third WTW Art Workshop Pics

I am so grateful for all of the wonderful women who participated in the Women Transforming Women’s THIRD Imagination & Inspiration Workshop! I loved how the creativeness and intuitiveness came out in the relaxed atmosphere onto their canvases! 

Here is what these wonderful women had to say about the workshop…

 

“Painting my feelings – a lot of fun!”

“Fellowship/sharing our paintings; everything was great!”

“Enjoyable and empowering; being creative; hearing women’s stories; I just love it!”

“Beginning with the visual meditation (most meaningful); fun; perfect!”

“Very peaceful; feeling of wellbeing.”

“Figured out what my painting represented in my life! Fulfilling, positive!”

“It felt so good to pause and check in with my creative side!”

“We loved it! – Wonderful venue, guests and hostess!

“Most meaningful – explaining meaning of picture at end!” – Community; together-ness.”

“Very good! Love the concept! It’s great! Want more of this type of workshop!”

Most meaningful segment: “Meditation and being with the group!”

“Sharing with others; meeting other women; wonderful, fun!”

“Sharing everyone’s work and meaning; happy!”

Have you tried natural and medical pain relieving products for daily pain and have not experienced relief, or felt side effects? After over 20 years of high impact aerobics and weight training, my knees began to hurt and get inflamed. I then sought an orthopedic professional and he said that’s not really why I’m having pain. Due to some congenital skeletal issues, my sports orthopedic doctor recommended turmeric, glucosamine and fish oil, knowing I always want to use holistic, natural renewproducts whenever possible. After a few months of daily diligence, the pain was not completely relieved.

I was then introduced to Vasayo™ RENEW by my chiropractor and have been using it every morning and night with amazing results. I am no longer in pain or discomfort!

Relieve Pain CDMany of my clients seek my hypnotherapy services for pain and inflammation. You may wonder how hypnotherapy can affect the body’s pain receptors.  By uniting the mind and body, hypnotherapy allows the mind to heal the body and relieve and release pain and discomfort. The mind-body connection is more powerful than people realize.

When you combine hypnotherapy and Vasayo™ RENEW, it’s a wonderful, holistic combination to relieve pain, inflammation and discomfort!

Whether or not you have ever drawn or painted before, it doesn’t matter because each and every one of us has an artist within! This past Saturday was our first Women Transforming Women’s “Inspiration & Imagination Art Workshop”!

We started the day with some light, healthy snacks and refreshments. Everyone received a worksheet to write down what they imagined, dreamed of, and visualized for their lives. This was followed by a guided imagery/meditation.  Then the participants picked their seat with their canvas and were able to choose all of the colors that they wanted to paint with!

It was so motivational and inspirational for me to see the Art and Imagination Workshopcreativity in all the participants! Here are some of the comments we received at the end of the day.

“Taking the time for me… loved it!”

“Excellent! Very calming- great workshop!”

“Time to myself for reflecting and thinking; relaxing!”

“Light, hopeful, collaborative.”

“The sharing of our work.” (sharing the story behind each painting)

“Good to see people going from fear to doing this and then completing something meaningful to them. It was great!”

“Using my hands and putting paint to canvas- exhilarating! It was excellent!”

“Allowing me to paint whatever I wanted was very freeing. An opportunity to allow self-expression.”

“I loved it! Perfection- could not be improved upon!”

Women Transforming Women

Several years ago, I had an epiphany — I had a vision of putting together an inspiring program for women from all walks of life! The concept was and still is a deep passion for inspiring and motivating women to transform their lives in a positive way! I founded and created “Women Transforming Women” (WTW), which is a networking community explicitly for adult women to meet up for workshops, seminars and groups to mastermind, educate, motivate and inspire each other to discover their strengths, their values and their passions!

Do you feel like you are holding yourself back? Are you living your passion and being true to yourself? This community can help you discover and/or enhance your inner qualities through self care, health and wellness, beauty tips and techniques to tap into how to live your best life!

As the founder of this networking community, I do believe that every woman has the potential to bring out the best in themselves. Being sexy, savvy and successful is something that can heighten a woman’s self-esteem and self confidence. It can also improve relationships and ultimately bring more satisfaction into your life!

I am launching this women’s movement with a free workshop on Saturday, February 4th, 2017 from 9:00am-12:00 noon! Join the movement and experience the growth of this community! It all begins with you taking this first step!

To me, it means giving thanks for everything that I have been blessed with: my health, my children, my Thanksgivinghusband, my home, my business, my clients, and the list goes on and on. Even though I am grateful and give thanks every single day of the year, Thanksgiving is such a special day for family and friends to gather and share a special meal with. This Thanksgiving, we are having additional family members coming from out of town who will be staying with us. It makes Thanksgiving even more special, the more family and friends who gather around the table. It is a wonderful time to share what is going on in each other’s lives, to try special dishes made from scratch, and it’s really just all about people- people who mean the most to you.

The first Thanksgiving was celebrated by the Pilgrims’ successful harvest in the New World, inviting a group of Native American allies to share in their meal, in November of 1621.  We have carried on this tradition of community and sharing with family and friends over the years.

It is also a time to reach out to others and those who are less fortunate. Donating time, food, and money to those people who are in need. It is a time to give back to our community- a day when everyone puts differences to the side and enjoys the camaraderie, the sharing and the giving!

HalloweenFall is in the air! What this brings to mind is cooler weather, windy days, shorter days, and the holidays beginning with Halloween. It is hard to believe that a whole year has gone by so quickly. I remember as a kid that Halloween was the only time I was ever allowed to dress in a way, and be in a different character, than usual. I know that many people take advantage of this phenomenon. You can actually dress like and feel like another person. I liked it because it was the one day I could be someone else! Someone completely different than myself.

————————————————————

Fast forward to when I got married and had kids. I decorated the house inside and out. We were the house that everyone wanted to see! And I handed out some really great treats and all kinds of things. I would also dress up so that when I opened the door, the kids could see another character. I had spooky Halloween music on in the background- it was so much fun!

————————————————————

Do you sometimes feel like being someone or something else for a day? If so, maybe all you really need is a break from everyday stresses of life. Getting away or doing something fun and out of the ordinary may be all you need. So if this Halloween you feel like dressing up and being another character, have fun, relax and enjoy!

Hypnotherapy, Hypnotherapist, HypnosisAddictions…

It appears that many people use chemical substances such as cigarettes, marijuana, recreational drugs, alcohol and over-the-counter drugs to numb their emotional pains and discomforts but then, many times, it becomes an addiction. Alcohol seems to be the most “socially acceptable” chemical addiction that is served in many restaurants and has become a popular phenomenon in the wine-tasting industry. When I was a little girl, growing up in Los Angeles, my grandpa- an immigrant from Sicily- made homemade wine in barrels in the basement. It was only natural that the adults in the family always had a glass or two of wine with their meals. In most cultures, this is acceptable and normal, but it could also be a precursor to an addiction if abused.

Through hypnotherapy, I have been able to help and guide people of all ages to free themselves from addictive behaviors. With any chemical addiction, such as cigarettes, marijuana, cocaine, heroin and alcohol, it actually takes only 72 hours for the addiction to leave the body.  After 72 hours, the rest is behavior modification. Through hypnotherapy and life and mindfulness coaching, I teach my clients how to help themselves and how to create healthier, more beneficial habits so they can live a life of freedom.

What’s in a Name?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Doug & RosanneThe names we were given at birth and the names we give ourselves are so individual and personal. When we were very young, we just accepted the names we were given by our parents, and they may even have had nicknames for us. Then, when we attended school, many of us were given nicknames by our classmates, and sometimes those nicknames were less than positive and did not make us feel good.

I was given the name “Rosanne” in honor of my father’s Aunt Rose who raised him after his mother died when he was 11 years old. She was a wonderful amazing woman! But, my dad wanted to spell my name differently than the norm; which of course brought about many people misspelling my name to this day! When I was very young, I didn’t really like my name because it wasn’t in style or ‘hip’! As I began to grow up, I liked my name because it was not common. Many kids teased me because I was so naïve` and very sheltered. I was nerdy and not very popular. I had to wear orthotic shoes from first through eighth grade that looked like white nurse’s shoes, which made me feel even more like a nerd!

You may wonder why I am telling you all of this. — My wonderful husband, Doug, recently found out that he was never officially adopted by his stepfather (MacDonald) and that his official legal birth last name was “Kingsbury”. Doug was born out of wedlock (he was the first born), and his mother did what she thought was best to give him the same last name as his brother’s father, her first husband. His dear mother, unfortunately is in the last stages of Alzheimer Disease, and will not know that her first born child has legally changed his last name back to his mother’s maiden name, in honor of her. His mother actually changed back to her maiden name before she became ill.

I am telling you this story, so that if and when you see my last name as “Kingsbury”, you will know why. Also, my nickname is “Rosy”, so you may see my name as Rosy Kingsbury. I told my husband, “I wish that you had found out about his true last name before we got married 16 years ago!” So, for business purposes, I am keeping the last name “MacDonald” for now, but may hyphenate it as well in the future.
