Completion is defined as the action or process of finishing something. We have just completed the 90-Day Challenge – The Advanced Version, and I want to congratulate all who participated and stayed on track. This is quite an accomplishment to commit to something for a three-month period of time, with a specific daily routine. We will soon have some before and after pictures to share so you can see what this level of commitment to Block Therapy can achieve.

I do want to mention that when it comes to health, we are never complete. Taking care of your body is a lifelong task -- and hopefully one that you can love. When you give yourself time to pay service to your cells, the benefits that come back to you are exponential in their gifts. The thing about our body is it is so incredibly resilient, adaptable and stronger than you can imagine. That’s why we sometimes end up in the negative situations we find ourselves in when it comes to pain and limitation -- because we can push our limits to an extreme and still function . . . until we can’t.

The ability of the body to undergo negative challenges and continue on, is the same body that can repair at a rapid rate and heal when given what it needs to thrive. Often, we just need to get out of our own way and treat the body with kindness and persuasive action, as opposed to force.

Force is defined as strength or energy as an attribute of physical action or movement. It is also defined as coercion or compulsion, especially with the use or threat of violence. Persuasion is defined as the act of influencing someone to do something or to change their mind. Both of these words indicate movement, but there is a big difference between the two in getting things done.

I want to talk about how your cells perceive your actions. I used to be the one in the gym, lifting heavy weights even when my body was in pain, running for miles even when I needed to use my inhaler to have enough breath, and starving myself to attempt to make my body smaller. I was forcing my cells to work in an attempt to gain a specific result. For all the energy I used to do this, I only became bigger, less healthy and accumulated more pain and anxiety

I think this is a symptom of what is happening in the world today as well. Many of us are on a track to get somewhere different than where we are. We feel if we don’t hurry up, work harder, sleep less . . . then we aren’t striving to make the most out of life. I want to share that yes, commitment is required to make progress, but force can often throw you back into a worse scenario than before all of the immense energy output used to reach your goal.


Persuasion is the way I like to approach my body and my life. Cells respond to kindness. It’s all about creating a frequency inside yourself that can activate the healing potentials. It doesn’t mean that work and commitment aren’t required, but slow and steady does tend to win the race.

Persuasion is the way I like to approach my body and my life. Cells respond to kindness. It’s all about creating a frequency inside yourself that can activate the healing potentials. It doesn’t mean that work and commitment aren’t required, but slow and steady does tend to win the race. 

When I was young, rather than taking slow, forward steps to a goal, I would be in a rush to get to the ideal. This never really worked for me as the body doesn’t respond well to consistent forceful attacks. Had I pulled back on my extremes of working out and dieting, I would have forgone many challenges I brought onto myself. I wanted to go from zero to a hundred in a moment, and we know that isn’t the healthy and best approach long-term. This approach landed me 50 pounds bigger, anxious and in pain, and feeling like a failure.

Today, I understand the need for rest and repair, and consistent self-care. It doesn’t take a lot of time in a day, but to give your cells a little time and attention on a daily basis, results in those continual steps forward. When we were halfway through our 90 Day Challenge, so many people commented that they couldn’t believe how fast time was going -- and this is the beauty. The daily persuasion of kind action to your cells continues to add up to an efficient system that will only serve your highest good.

I understand the mentality behind working hard to get a result and the feeling of pride that can come with completion, however if the completion leaves you depleted, have you progressed, or digressed. I have spent many hours in my life using force, which caused me to digress, and there is nothing more depressing than working hard to move backward.

For those who began the challenge and needed to slow things down through respecting their limits and who continued to listen to their body and stay committed to self-care, your body is truly grateful. For when it comes to self-care, there is never a completion, just persuasive action to continue to move forward. For those who completed the journey, it doesn’t end here. Your cells will always thrive when given the proper love, kindness and attention they need. We need to move our bodies, but we need to understand how to love them first, otherwise, we are treating them with violence. Doing anything too hard and to extremes is abusing your cells --I know, I used to do it all the time. 

It’s a hard mindset to change. This world is competitive, and we become that way with ourselves. I’m not suggesting that we be less in this life than we aspire to be, however, changing your approach to be more persuasive with yourself and kinder to your cells may result in you surpassing your goals as you tune up to a higher frequency.

If you are feeling stuck, in pain, frustrated and have lost hope in any way, try a persuasive approach to feed, heal and energize your body. That is what Block Therapy does; healing, exercise and meditation all built into a system that you do lying down, even on a bed. It’s okay to be comfortable and restful while you make changes.
