Uncertainty and fear, tips to get a grip!

Uncertainty and fear, tips to get a grip!

 

DSCF3283

If you are suffering from increased anxiety and stress, move over. You are not alone. Statistics are showing that almost 85 % of Americans are feeling anxious. It should not come as a surprise that sales of anti-depressants are up. And, in truth, many of these fears are based in reality, if you look at the economic, political, and military outlook.

 

That’s the bad news. None of us has the power to personally change the scenario in the world of financial disasters, health epidemics, or nuclear war (although we can shift the energies and transform them). Those elements are going to be there no matter what you do.

 

So what can you do besides popping Valium ora shot of scotch to get a handle on your nerves? Well, you can follow one or two simple rules that I like to use when the going gets tough. You see, unless you change how you see the world and your place within, you will be at effect of the economy and the crisis. It would be better to change your perspective, instead of fighting it, align with it.

 

Look at it this way. Just suppose you were born to be a part of this crisis, and to be a part of the solution as well. For what reason would you have been placed here, what kind of role would you play? For example, one of my clients, a mousy brunette, realized she was here to serve as an icon of freedom, almost like being the statue of liberty, bringing freedom to her clients. Another client, struggling in this economy to find clients, realized that she had lost her vision. Once she regained her clarity, she could now help her clients regain their visions, and in the process, business doubled overnight.

So today instead of reacting to the events in the news, take charge of yourself. Ask yourself what gifts and services are yours, that could help others during these troubled times. If you were indeed put here for a purpose, a mission, what exactly is it. That’s the first step to getting a grip in today’s world. Clients call me when they can’t figure it out and need help in defining and actualizing their mission.

AWAKEN YOUR MIRACLE MIND

Last year I found myself wondering “What happened to the life I envisioned for myself? How had it slipped past me, that I no longer followed my passion: writing, speaking, doing readings, healing and inspiring those around me?” Instead, I was riddled with fears about the future of my community, my family, my world, and myself. The future no longer seemed bright. I saw only the grim reminders things were going down hill.

Forgotten were the countless miracles I had experienced in my life. My past successes had been shaped by miracles, as if the angels themselves watched over me and had led me through perils to safety. Time and time again I learned to pay heed to the voices in my mind that allowed me to take the right path, to open the door to my destiny and step through. Now Light seemed to be giving ground to darkness.

This journey has seen me create a successful and dynamic chiropractic practice, rewardingly gifted with devoted patients. I then suffered an injury that left me unable to practice. I lost everything. I was destitute – a poor and starving mother with two young kids. The recovery process led my children and I to form a rather remarkable group dedicated to rebuilding our life. We called ourselves the Miracle Makers Club.

I devoted myself to understanding miracles. Are they possible for everyone? If so, are they possible for me? Is there some secret involved in living a miraculous life? What did I need to do to activate these miracles? Does everyone have a “Miracle Muscle”, ready to be roused or stimulated into high gear?

Maybe I was just living in a fantasy world – a place where I could achieve my goals and live my dreams. I turned inside to hear the messages that helped guide me to the steps to launch and empower myself through these miracles. I discovered a passion and focus, determined to achieve this knowledge and while I knew with soul-certainty that I was on the right path, the key to creating a life of miracles yet eluded me.

Just when I feared there would be no way back, I had what I call a trio of miracles – three rather profound events that renewed my faith. One day my colleague Denise told me to expect a miracle within the next 24 hours. She wouldn’t tell me what she had seen clairvoyantly. She would only say that something amazing was going to happen and I would then know the truth of miracles.

I spent the entire evening and most of the next day expecting a major miracle. Nothing happened. Later in the afternoon, during a heavy Northern California rain storm, I drove my son to his basketball game in Santa Rosa. I was unfamiliar with the area and was driving my daughter’s small Honda Civic. After the game my son left with his Dad and I was alone as I drove from the parking lot. With almost no visibility due to the torrential downpour, I made a few wrong turns and found myself lost on dark flooded roads with nothing identifiable around me – virtually nowhere.

While trying to retrace my route I made a U-turn which proved disastrous. I landed in a rather steep ditch on the opposite side of the flooded country road. The front end of my car was at a steep downward angle off the road and there was no way I could back up. I could not raise a signal on my cell phone (did you have GPS? no signal or no GPS should mention here)
I was sitting there and thinking “What kind of miracle is this? I was supposed to experience a miracle! And that’s when I had one of those ‘Ah-Ha!’ moments. I realized that if I just relaxed I would find the miracle in this. I needed to believe there was a miracle in this disaster and it did seem as though landing in a ditch, alone in an unfamiliar area with no probable means of rescue would be the perfect opportunity to experience one.

I decided that no matter how seemingly ridiculous this might be, I would have every expectation that the situation would turn out in the right and proper manner. Out loud, I stated “I need a major miracle, right now, please” and I let my worries go, knowing that a miracle was on its way.

Almost instantaneously, a pick up truck pulled up across from me. A tall guy with a baseball cap and a cigarette hanging from his mouth stepped out into the dark and rainy night. Here I was, alone on a country road in the middle of nowhere and, God only knows, he could have been the devil himself! I had a momentary flash of doubt, which I quickly dispelled, for I was committed to a positive outcome. Then the door on the passenger side of the truck opened, and his wife stepped out to give a hand.

Within five minutes they had stopped a group of cars and gathered several men. They easily lifted up that tiny Honda Civic, got it back on the road, turned around, and me back on the freeway as easy as apple pie.

Sure was a miracle in my book!

Event number two: Several weeks later, I drove north to Petaluma to have lunch with a friend. We spent some time wandering about the senior center where she taught an art class. I was introduced me to the caretaker who happened to be present although he was rarely there. After our visit my friend left and I returned to my car, only to find the battery dead.

Alone in a rather questionable neighborhood, with a dead battery, did not give me a warm, fuzzy feeling. So, once again, I humbly asked for a miracle, determined to somehow get my car working safely.

I looked up, and there was the caretaker, offering to help. He told me that he suddenly had a strange feeling that he needed to go outside to the street. That’s when he saw me having car trouble. It didn’t take long to hook up cables, jump start the car, and send me on my way.

Event number three: Several months later I was with a small group of dowsers investigating energies at vortexes and rock formations at the top of a rather hilly mountainous area at Point Reyes, California. . We returned to the parking lot and everyone left immediately. I was the last to leave, with two passengers in my car. Much to my dismay, the battery had died (again!). I turned the key once, and, except for the feeble sound of the engine trying to turn over with no battery to spark the plugs, nothing happened. I tried a second time, beginning to feel a bit nervous. No other cars around, no device to jump start and no working cell phones in the middle of the mountainous area. Once again, I knew we needed a miracle.

So before I tried the key again I humbly asked my angels again for a miracle – I asked for the car to start right now. And lo’ and behold, as I turned the key with an air of expectation and hope, the battery engaged and engine turned over!

Three car miracles within the year, all with common themes. Now you may be thinking – “She just needs AAA and a decent cell phone provider!” No….I needed miracles; I believed miracles were possible for me, and that they were available to me. Just like they are possible and available for you.

So get to work! Raise your expectation levels! Trust, Believe, KNOW that you deserve the positive outcomes that you are working towards! Good things Will happen for you. There is something to be gained from every experience in your life, that can be built upon and used to manifest your dreams. You, too, can learn to awaken the Miracle Muscle that is within you.

MIRACLES HAPPEN- AN INSPIRING INTERVIEW WITH DR JOAN

August 13, 2010 1 comment

What’s your name? Tell me about yourself.

I am Dr Joan Hangarter, DC, MS. I am an author, speaker, visionary, a healer, chiropractor and Intuitive Psychic Consultant. I practiced as a chiropractor for over twenty years in Berkeley and I am currently practicing in Novato. I’ve lived in Novato 10 years

Why did you write this book?

I wrote my book to inspire others who might be going through loss, upheaval, emotional or financial devastation.

What is the primary point of the book?

Primary point is that no matter what your life circumstance, you are not a victim, and you can apply certain techniques and strategies to redesign your life and overcome challenges and obstacles.

Give me an overview of the book.

I share the story of how I lost everything including the kitchen sink, and as a single mother of two children, 8 and 10,, we formed a very unique club to help us get back on our feet. The club was called the Miracle Makers Club, and from that the three of us were able to change our life and literally have miraculous experiences in our recovery.

What moments from your life are most memorable?

Discovering that I can share my experiences in a way that inspires others. I have been a healer my entire life, and the healings I have seen, and the transformations, are the best.

What would you want the readers of your book to understand from reading your book?

You have the power to create a life that fulfills your dreams, and launches miracles for you and your family.

Take any section from your book and share your thoughts about that?

I love the article that I wrote for the SF Examiner that appears in the beginning of the book. The article was entitled, Its Tough to Be Poor and Even Tougher for Marin County. I wrote the article because I wanted the middle and upper class here in Marin to understand, through the eyes of one who had recently been wealthy and lost it all, what it really felt like to be hungry and homeless. I hoped to spread compassion and understanding.

Who would benefit most from reading your book?

Right now, almost everyone, in particularly anyone going through a personal life, financial, family or health issues.

If you could give to others only one word of advice what would that be?

Start listening to your intuition.

What do you value most in life?

I am so grateful to be alive, to be healthy, to live in this most beautiful county, to have two beautiful and loving children and supportive friends.

Do you believe that people are inherently good or bad?

I believe we all have the possibility of creating miracles and positive lives. My fantasy is to spread goodness seeds, so they are catching.

What is your greatest regret?

I wish i had been able to help more people, change more lives, give more value.

What do you see as your greatest achievement?

My greatest achievement has been to follow my personal inner calling, listen to my intuition, and follow my dream

How do you deal with someone you don’t like?

I step back and re assess my own thinking, as they may be my mirror

What do you feel you are entitled to in life?

Health, wealth and happiness should I choose to accept

What’s your favourite song?

59th street Bridge

What are your feelings regarding ‘God’ and religion?

I believe in spirit and in following the inner calling. We can all hear god, we can all connect with spirit, we don’t need religion. Religion to me is a prescribed way of approaching the heart, through intermediaries. We all have the ability, within us, to access the highest of powers.

How do you personally define “Right” from “Wrong”?

Right is right because it either helps, or serves, makes people feel better, is good for all concerned. WRong hurts, wrong destroys, wrong separates. Of course its all in the perspective.

What is your motto?

We all have the ability to be Miracle Makers!

What are your goals in life?

To heal and inspire millions of people to live life fully, with integrity, service and a sense of oneness.

What keeps you on track with those goals?

People, places, things, my clients, my kids, my plants

What is your favourite compliment?

You’ve inspired me!

Miracles Made Easy – The Four Types of Miracles and How To Create them in Your Life

August 13, 2010 1 comment

Miracles Made Easy –

The Four Types of Miracles and How To Create them in

Your Life

By Joan Hangarter, D.C., M.S.

DR JOAN’S STORY: Dr. Joan is currently a radio talk show host, and author of

The Miracle Makers Club – Live Your Prosperous and Soul-Filled … …

[So you need a miracle. But what exactly is a miracle and how do you attract

them into your life? Each of you has a different idea of what a miracle is. For

some, it is an unexplainable act that no human could possibly accomplish alone.

Or maybe you simply define a miracle as,” something that can never happen to

me.” The word miracle has been applied to saints, intuition, magic, hope, a helping

hand, finding a parking space, winning the lottery, getting an education, and

even receiving your mail. In its basic definition, a miracle is something that is

simply amazing.

I have broken it down to four basic types of miracles.

Miracle A: Mini Miracle There are four types of miracles. You probably

experience the first type frequently, without realizing it. This is the

mini-miracle or the baby step miracle. These are daily events, such as

finding a parking space right in front of Costco on Christmas Eve, for

example. In another case, maybe you think about whom you need to speak with

and they call — out of the blue. Last week I was wandering down the bread aisle

at the supermarket, wondering when my son Anton’s basketball game was and I

ran into another mom on the team who knew the answer right then.

Author Jean Shonoda Bolen says, “Synchronicity can pave the way for people

coming together. By unraveling the circumstances through which two people

meet to enter a significant relationship, the delicate, unseen hand of fate, destiny,

synchronicity or underlying Tao can be discerned.” Simply put, she’s referring to

this type of miracle.

Perhaps you find the right book at the right time, as says mythologist

William Irwin Thompson, “A university can provide you with a library, but what

makes the book you are not looking for fall off the shelf and into your hands?”

When I was destitute, my miracles were simple, such as finding spare

change hidden in my pockets when I had just run out of money for food. A miracle

was getting a ride to and from school for my kids during the rainy season

when we did not own umbrellas, raincoats or hats. I walked two to three miles a

day in the chilly San Francisco rain. My close friend Lalo couldn’t bear to see me

so beaten down, and he bought me a beat up, salvaged 1981 Volvo that spit

fumes. The car became my Golden Red Chariot– my miracle car. It didn’t matter

that the roof leaked and the car had no heat. It ran. We had transportation!

Thanksgiving and Christmas were celebrated, when we miraculously received

gifts of turkey and trimmings. A neighbor knocked on my door with a made up

story about winning an extra turkey at work. Right. A mother from the school

handed me a gift certificate for a ready-made dinner, complete with stuffing. Believe

me, you could never convince me that miracles don’t exist, because I experienced

them even during the bleakest of moments.

What constitutes a miracle to one person may go unnoticed by another. A few

cents for food and a beat up Volvo might be a curse to an affluent family, but to

me, they were blessings in disguise. At the time, a simple turkey meant the world

to me. So everyone will have a slightly different definition of what a miracle

means to them personally..

It is easy to overlook or discount the little events as they occur. That’s

why I call everything that is positive that comes my way a miracle. I

never leave anything out, because I want a steady stream of wonderfully nice

things happening to me 24/7.

Miracle B: The “Lucky” Miracle The second type of miracle is what some consider

luck, good fortune or sheer


coincidence. For instance, you may say that Sam Walton was lucky to have succeeded

in creating Wal-Mart and Sam’s. I mean, several others had tried to do it

and failed. It must have been luck or fate or an accident that he did it where others

did not.

To become lucky, in the real sense, is to become purposeful, mindful,

intuitive, listening to your answers and going with your own sense of

rhythm towards a destination. I classify it as a miracle, because as you

create this aura of winning, sometimes it appears as though the good luck occurs

at just the right time. It might feel like divine intervention that saved your life. Was

that luck or a miracle? Did God do it or did you?

Individuals who are consistently lucky are manifesting outwardly a

disciplined and focused approach on the inside. They are usually following a

quest, a voice, an intuitive gut feeling, and they are focused on seeing it through.

They have created the mindset, the brew, and the soil for their miracle. Remember,

the universe will send you precisely what you ask for.

Two days ago, I stood behind a handsome younger man outside the bathroomon

a Southwest Commuter Flight. Just that morning I had expressed a need to find

raw foods. Three hours later I meet a man who runs a company that imports raw

foods from third world countries and markets them to major

natural food stores. Synchronicity of events occurs all the time, when you say to

our friends, ‘I was just thinking of you, and here you are at

Safeway at the exact precise moment I am.’

That we survived is a major miracle indeed. 2001 was the bleakest year in my

entire life. The kids and I decided to not celebrate Christmas. We had no stomach

for additional disappointments. My attorney asked me how I coped with losing

everything and being reduced to food stamps and poverty.

I had to tell him. I wrote him a letter. The letter became a three page

double spaced 1000 word article. With a tremendous sense of freedom, I emailed

the piece to six newspapers, three in California, and three in New York

City, my birthplace.

Imagine my surprise when I returned home to a voicemail from David Burgin, editor

of the San Francisco Examiner. He informed me my writing was excellent,

boosting my ego a thousand fold and actually published the piece on the front

page on December 19, 2001. The response was truly miraculous. Fifty people

responded with letters of encouragement and donations of food, presents, slippers,

bathrobes, groceries and cash. We suddenly felt rich beyond belief.

These acts of kindness were not coincidence. It wasn’t just accidental,

and it certainly wasn’t random. These were the miracles I was creating, without

even realizing it. I now know these principles work if applied with 100 percent intention

and commitment. Anything less than 100 percent will not succeed. The

exercises in my latest book, The Miracle Makers Club – Live the Prosperous and

Soul Filled Life that You Deserve Today, show you how to activate your miracles

and make your own dreams come true.

One of my radio show guests calls himself Dr. Luck. Randall Fitzgerald has devoted

a lifetime to researching the qualities that lucky people have in common.

He says, in his book, Lucky You, “If we recognize and appreciate the appearance

of serendipity and synchronicity in our lives we seem to enhance our chances of

being blessed with good fortune,” he writes. “To some extent, there seems to be

a law of attraction at work here – the more we notice something, the more we attract

it into our lives.” He believes that if you accept “the miraculous” you will

have “the blessings of good fortune.” In other words, luck is an attitude.

This is important because winners who consistently win, tell us that they get into

a flow during which everything comes to them. Success isn’t just by accident;

lucky people create it from their mindset of prosperity. You have heard the saying,

‘success breeds success.’ Spend time with positive, prosperous friends and

you will walk away feeling naturally good.

Miracle C: Life Changing, Transformational Miracle


The third type of miracle is the life changing, transformational miracles

that have lead you to completely change your focus and life direction.

Accidents, illnesses, divorce, job losses force you to reconsider your

options. This transformational miracle is an unwelcome friend pushing you along

to discover your true life’s purpose.

This miracle, born from crisis, is a potent force for change. My

commitment to transform my life obsessed me. I learned that harnessing my life’s

purpose would activate my miracles and create the life I dreamed about. This

was easier said than done. I had allowed myself to fall into disarray. I lived in fear

24 hours a day. Since I was desperate and knew there had to be a better way, I

committed myself to making necessary changes. There was no choice. Hard

work was required. It was not enough to intellectually know what needed to be

done. I had to change myself. Other people have had similar miracles. Like Mike

McGauley who lost the use of both his legs when his car was struck by a drunk

driver. His doctors insisted on amputating his legs, but he refused. He was

determined to walk. Mike now claims “the accident that almost killed me turned

out to save my life.” Twelve years later he ran his first triathlon and has

gone on to become a professional speaker, coach, and founder of the Dream

Builders.

Last summer I heard Wesla Whitfield, a renowned jazz singer perform at a fundraiser

sponsoring horse training for disable children. I was surprised when she

rolled onto the stage in her wheelchair. An automobile accident when she was

younger had paralyzed her legs. She didn’t let that stop her. Her performance

was passionate, riveting, and held me spell bound. At the end of the show, another

woman in a wheelchair rolled in and handed Welsa a bouquet of flowers

and brought the audience to tears. When she had been in the hospital, having

also had a severe accident paralyzing her, Wesla had spent hours at her side

encouraging her to go on. Her story, while miraculous and fascinating, is not entirely

unique. Simple people do amazing things everyday. Erik Weihenmayer was

born with retinoscheses, a degenerative eye disorder that left him blind at 13.

Erik was determined to rise above his disabilities. In his book, “Touch The Top of

The World,” he shares his struggles to stretch beyond his boundaries to overcome

the restrictions placed upon him. His dream was to climb the world’s biggest

peaks, an extraordinary achievement for those even with sight. Erik has now

climbed the tallest peaks in the world, and my last e-mail from him indicated he

was going back with a group of blind climbers.

My mother experienced a miracle as well. She lived with me for the last eight

months of her life, and her lung cancer spread rapidly. One weekend, I brought

mom to the emergency room. Her oncologist advised me to call my family to her

side, because her death was near. I called my friend Dr. Awender, an old school

chiropractor. Dr. Awender adjusted one bone in mom’s neck and told her that he

had turned on her body’s healing power. My husband and I went for Sunday

brunch, down the street to the Santa Fe Bar and Grill close to my Berkeley practice.

When we returned to the hospital, my mother was sitting up in bed, demanding

to be released.

And this wasn’t her only miracle. One day she told me she almost died. “I went

through a rather immense glowing tunnel towards a blinding light. There were

magnificent radiant beings on both sides who asked me if I was ready to come

home. I told them no, because I still needed to reconcile with my sister, Pearl,

and my daughter, Hildy.” According to my mother, her body became as light as a

feather. The pain disappeared, and she experienced an extraordinary sense of

love and well-being. She was granted permission to return in order to mend her

relationships before she passed on. Mom finally died when she was ready to go.

She held my hand in my home while we listened to her favorite music.

Like these fascinating examples, your obstacles and challenges can become the

fuel for your life transformational miracles. Step away from your problems, and

reconsider them from the higher perspective. What life lessons are you learning

from this? What do your challenges represent? What is the message in this challenge

for you to overcome? This becomes the fertilizer to grow your miracle.

Grab hold of the opportunity to make change before life forces it on you.

Miracle D: Unexplainable Events


I call the last type, miracles of the fifth dimensional kind. They are the result of

extraordinary, unexplainable events that normal science and rational explanations

cannot answer. Some of these miracles are sanctioned by the church. The

Vatican requires candidates for sainthood to have performed documented miracles,

at least two of them. For example, both Jesus and Muhammed fed masses

of people with only a small amount of food.

Even in the Jewish collection of laws, there are descriptions of miracles in the

Talmud. An old Jewish proverb says: “He who does not believe in miracles is not

a realist.” These books discuss the miracles that we can control and create. They

are designed for people who want to learn how to harness and create their miracles.

You must want your transformation so badly you experience pain in the pit

of your belly.

I will show you how to develop your life purpose and create your own miracle

team. My vision is to bring together others who share your determination and

commitment to success. The energy from the group consciousness enhances

your power and raises your vibration to the point where you will catch your miracle

wave. Together, we will mix the miracle brew and activate the nutrients to get

it going. What could be simpler? Join our team of Miracle Makers. We will be

your miracle buddies and cheer you on to success as you overcome obstacles

and habits that sabotage your progress and formulate action plans to achieve

your greatest dreams.

Don’t be surprised if you awaken in the mornings ready to leap from a deep

sleep, filled with passion and excitement. Finally, you are living the life you

yearned for, the one you prayed that you could create and have. If you only had

that miracle you’ve dreamed about. What major and minor miracles have happened

to you already? Try to think of a time when you experienced a Mini Miracle.

Have you experienced coincidences that seem too good to be true or a front

parking spot that just appeared What life changing miracles have happened to

you? What other random miracles have you experienced? If you could make just

one miracle happen in your life, what would it be? Now that you’re in the mood

for making miracles, it’s time you learn how to do it. You can create major life

transformations in just four steps. The first step, essential to creating a healthy

lifestyle, is that you must have a strong desire to change. You must be ready to

confront your life, assess your life and take responsibility for it. Are you ready to

get started?
