Life Lessons: Heather Hans

Life Lessons: Heather Hans

Good Enough Mother by Ella Rucker Are you happy at the moment? In some ways, yes, in other ways, no.  I am extraordinarily grateful for all of the gifts in my life, and the gift of life itself.  And, there are many things that pain me in my life and in the world at large.  My goal has never been happiness, though, but rather to complete my mission of evolution during this lifetime and to make a meaningful contribution to the world. If you could go back and say anything to your 16-year-old self now – what would it be?   I would encourage myself to take the risk and join groups that would nurture me and help me grow.  I would also encourage myself to take care of my body, surround myself with loving and healthy people, and develop a spiritual practice.  At 16, I was engaging in harmful activities because I felt badly about myself and lacked confidence. What’s the most important thing you’ve learned this year? The biggest and most profound way to heal is simply to be wrapped in the divine mother’s wing where you can cry, share your rejected prayers, and rest.  People have told me for years that by simply showing up as me, I would heal others, yet I didn’t believe them.  I always felt I had to “do something.”  It wasn’t until I experienced my own illness this year and healed through the Divine Goddess (the feminine aspect of God) taking me under her wing – not doing anything except listening and holding me as I cried and rested in her arms. What do you most want to achieve in the next 12 months? I want to achieve deeper and more integrated embodiment of the feminine Divine.  For me, doing so means more surrender and less effort.  It means more being and less doing; letting go and simply showing up, knowing that that is enough. What’s your secret to happiness? Enjoy it while it lasts because it will be over soon!  And then it will come back again.  Then it will end again; and come back…..  As a Jewish woman (a descendent of slaves and oppression) I’ve learned that one thing that keeps us enslaved is trying to feel good and be happy all the time. What one ritual or practice keeps you grounded? What keeps me the most grounded is not actually any of the dozens of practices that I keep daily, but being a mother and being close to my son.  He is what keeps me tethered to the earth when I feel like I’m falling off. What’s your biggest regret? I regret all of the sun exposure I got when I was young and foolish!  I have made unwise decisions, like everyone, but there’s not much I regret, as I have always lived life to the fullest and have learned and grown from all of my experiences. What’s the most important lesson you’ve taught your kid(s)? I think in threes (spirit, body, mind) – The most important lessons I have taught my child are:  (1) the significance of the Sabbath and our Jewish roots; (2) the importance of taking good care of his body through good diet, exercise, rest, and balanced living; and (3) to believe in himself!...

Single Mom Stress Buster

Rich $ingle Momma  Laugh! Remember that comedy is the flip side of tragedy. The two are closer to the same thing than you may think. Not only does every cloud have a silver lining, but it has a hilarious side, as well. Nothing challenges our faith as much as seeming tragedy. Humor helps us see our life from a new perspective (often times a more objective one), and it also allows us to come up with creative solutions to our problems. It raises our consciousness and energy level and can serve to enhance our spiritual connection amidst times of turmoil and life questions.

Helping someone off the ledge

Helping someone off the ledge

HearPreneur For Heather Hans, one of her happiest moments was with a client she had who was nearly suicidal and constantly dwelling on the past whom she helped discover his strengths, gifts and talents, as well as provide him with the connection he needed to go out into the world and create the life he thought he would never have. Inspiring her clients to recognize and accept the value and gifts that they already possess and offer to the world is the most rewarding aspect of her work.

Healer, Psychotherapist and TV Show Host, Heather Hans, Reveals a Way to Attract Loving People

Healer, Psychotherapist and TV Show Host, Heather Hans, Reveals a Way to Attract Loving People

Heather Hans, Healer, Psychotherapist, Internet TV Show Host and Spiritual Guide, shares a concrete way for growing love and attracting loving relationships in the process. Healer, Psychotherapist, and TV Show Host, Heather Hans, gives five tips on building quality-loving relationships through minimizing gossip and negative criticism. Hans states that in order to build quality, loving relationships, it is important to refrain from gossip and negative criticism. She adds that the world’s most attractive leaders refrain from gossip and negative criticism, which is part of what draws people to them.  Even if a person is not a leader, the words they use can either put them among the top echelon or among the “bottom feeders.” Hans says, “Gossip is for people who want to feel power and control because they currently feel weak and powerless.  It is a sign of jealousy or inferiority, and is a misguided cry for attention.  Unfortunately, it results in a cheapening of one’s character, and it prevents authentic and loving relationships from forming.” Learn to refrain from gossip and negative criticism by following Hans’ tips: 1.)    Keep a journal and record the number of times you gossip or criticize someone throughout the day.  Awareness is the first step towards change. 2.)    If someone is offensive, pray for their happiness, rather than criticize them, as their behavior is a reflection of their own level of functioning, and is not personal.  People who behave poorly are suffering. 3.)    Realize that not everyone is alike and imagine what life is like in their shoes.  The world would be dull if everyone were the same. 4.)    Stick to the facts, rather than providing a commentary, when describing a person or incident.  Once people start giving their opinion, they walk the slippery slope of criticism. 5.)    Change the topic if someone starts going down the road of gossip and negative criticism.

Which forms of alternative medicine do you use? How well do they work for you?

Which forms of alternative medicine do you use? How well do they work for you?

Nexus I am a big proponent of holistic medicine when needed, which means Western and Eastern medicine.  A lot of people think holistic means alternative, but wholeness means everything; balance.  However, whether it's acupuncture or antibiotics  to me the key to healing is to learn and grow from our illness and disease.  The four best forms of "medicines" I recommend are: Being honest with yourself and listening to that quiet, subtle voice in you called intuition.  Your body has wisdom and so many people blow by those intuitive voices and end up paying the price; Body basics: a whole and balanced diet, exercise, a daily and weekly rhythm, and rest; Connection with others and the Divine; The ability to withstand pain, as well as joy in life, and the practice of critical thinking (mental health tools) Heather Hans, LCSW, MSW, MBA, CPIC, is a Visionary, Healer & Teacher, and the author of The Heart of Self-Love: How to Radiate with Confidence. It is Heather's firm belief that loving oneself is necessary to have fulfilling relationships and a successful life.

Elegance is the Key to Abundance, says Personal Growth Expert Heather Hans

Elegance is the Key to Abundance, says Personal Growth Expert Heather Hans

  Style. Class. Grace. People get told their whole lives that these are inherited traits, available to just a lucky few - not so, says personal growth expert Heather Hans, who shares six steps achieving elegance. Healer and Psychotherapist, Heather Hans, has spent a lifetime reading people, and has dedicated her life to helping them. Heather says that to age well and attract love and abundance into your life, you must be like love itself: elegant, delicate, subtle, confident, and attractive. As a personal growth expert, Hans shares her tips on how to become a magnet for abundance by becoming more elegant. “Acting, thinking, and feeling in ways that are harsh, brash, and hurried prevent us from maturing properly,” says Heather. “Elegance is about paying attention to the subtle details of your style, your choice of words, the way you carry yourself, and the finesse you exude through your thoughts and actions.” Heather teaches men and women how to grow their level of elegance so they can fulfill a life of love and abundance, using these six steps: 1.     Elegance begins with a state of mind. Trusting that you are taken care of by a Divine force and knowing that you are connected to the natural flow of life leads to a state of elegance. 2.    Elegance is beautiful. While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, an elegant being is one who is tended to and not neglected. We tend to ourselves through self-care, and by surrounding ourselves with others who care for us deeply and softly. 3.    Elegance is simple. It is trouble-free and effortless. Challenges and storms come and go throughout life, but they do not destroy the elegance of the living. During those severe acts of God that do demolish the flowers and trees, new and fresh elegant life forms emerge. 4.    Elegance is effective. Those who are elegant are effective at what they do. Whether you are a sports star, a business person, a parent, or a street sweeper, to perform with elegance means that you get the job done and you do it well. 5.    Elegance is dignified. An elegant being has self-respect and exudes confidence. We teach people how to treat us by the way we treat ourselves. Confidence is not arrogant, but rather genuine, gracious, and virtuous. Those who are elegant, choose the honorable path, rather than the quick and easy way. 6.    Elegance is graceful. Grace is a state of poise, where our actions, thoughts, and feelings flow in a way that is balanced and refined. Grace is the perfect state of harmony between being in sync with the Divine and attracting abundance to us because of our sheer allure. Just as the rose attracts people who admire its beauty, so, too, does the elegant person who is admired and revered by others simply by being present. Heather Hans, LCSW, MSW, MBA, CPIC, is a Visionary, Healer & Teacher, and the author of The Heart of Self-Love: How to Radiate with Confidence. It is Heather's firm belief that loving oneself is necessary to have fulfilling relationships and a successful life.

Love And Relationship’s Lady Lennia Heather Hans’ Final Words

Love And Relationship’s Lady Lennia Heather Hans’ Final Words

Miss Millennia Magazine My final words of advice for the young women: It is God’s will that you grow into your fullest potential in this lifetime.  Everything you need is provided to you when you open your heart and choose a path of love.  Love does not mean romance.  Love is a virtue, which represents kindness to all living beings, from the earth, to your own body, to other human beings.  Love is characterized by benevolence, rather than greed and neediness.  You must love yourself in order to fully love others and so, take your personal growth step by step, each one as a new level of love, and know that love is not something you feel; love is who you are. You will thrive in life if you follow these ten tips: Invest in your education.  Knowledge is power. Create a high-caliber support system of people who love you and whom you admire. Take excellent care of your body through a nourishing diet, exercise, rest, daily rhythm, health care, and self-care. Be passionate about your work.  It should never be just a job, but an extension of your beliefs, values, service, and passion. Learn from every life experience and always find the silver lining.  Every encounter and experience is Divine if you open your eyes and see what it has to offer. Clothe and house yourself in ways that inspire you and put you at ease.  Self-care is an inside and outside job. Develop a spiritual practice.  When you nurture your connection to the source, you trust life, fear nothing, and gain inner peace. Treat everyone with respect and kindness.  The Golden Rule is wise because what goes around comes around.  We are all connected, so when you fail to have compassion for others, you are also failing to have compassion for yourself. Don’t ever settle for second best.  There’s no need to. Laugh often.  It is the best medicine for pain and suffering. “EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS PROVIDED TO YOU WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR HEART AND CHOOSE A PATH OF LOVE.” Heather Hans, LCSW, MSW, MBA, CPIC, is a Visionary, Healer & Teacher, and the author of The Heart of Self-Love: How to Radiate with Confidence. It is Heather's firm belief that loving oneself is necessary to have fulfilling relationships and a successful life.

Find Success In Love

Find Success In Love

Miss Millennia Magazine Success in life and love happens through repeated attempts and failure. Basketball great, Michael Jordan, said: “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” The more toads you kiss, the sweeter the prince (or princess)!  Here is a list of benefits we gain from adversity, and from missing the mark in love. 1.) Creates Resilience.  Resilience is a process that allows you to live a happier, healthier, more successful life. Having opportunities to respond to adversity allows you to master your own mental game. “Pain is inevitable.  Suffering is optional.” ~ Al-Anon 2.) Motivates You to Examine and Learn. Each defeat allows you to learn more about yourself and your circumstances. And, remember, when a door closes on you, a more enchanting one opens a few steps up! 3.) Tests Your Desire.  How badly do you want love, success, or anything else in your life?  If you quit after a few failures, then you don’t want it badly enough.  Think of adversity as mile markers on the marathon to success. 4.) Gain More Empathy and Humility.  Each time you “fail,” you become more humble and empathetic to humanity, two of the most spiritual qualities that exist. 5.)  Builds Strength of Soul and Character.  Not everything worth achieving needs to be difficult, but there is a quiet, solid strength you gain when you’ve earned something through “blood, sweat, and tears.”  Whether it’s a degree pursued through formal education, or wisdom through the school of hard knocks, you’ve earned it. Be proud. 6.)  Allows You to Make Your Own Opinion of Yourself Primary.  When someone dumps you or doesn’t have the ability to see or match your value, it is an opportunity for you to grow your self-worth. One of the most enlightened states we can achieve is when we are no longer affected by others’ opinions of us.   Heather Hans, LCSW, MSW, MBA, CPIC, is a Visionary, Healer & Teacher, and the author of The Heart of Self-Love: How to Radiate with Confidence. It is Heather's firm belief that loving oneself is necessary to have fulfilling relationships and a successful life.

Little Known Ways To Attract True Love

Little Known Ways To Attract True Love

Miss Millennia Magazine Many women unconsciously repel the love they seek by being needy.  If you answer “yes” to any of her five questions below, you are blocking love and abundance to flow into your life. 1.) Do you excessively seek the opinions of others, and constantly second-guess yourself?  The more you learn to trust your own power and intuition, the more you will become a magnet for love. 2.) Do you spend more time talking about yourself and thinking of what you want or what is missing you’re your life than you spend learning from others and feeling grateful for the abundance in your life right now?  Self-absorption keeps a wall around you that does not allow new energy to enter. 3.) Are you a people-pleaser?  People-pleasing is the biggest form of neediness that plagues women.  People can sense when you are trying to please them in order to get approval, and it repels them and leaves you feeling even more needy.  When you are authentic and true to yourself, you will gain respect from others and a deep sense of self-worth, a sure way to attract love. 4.) Do you allow yourself to receive gifts, compliments, and blessings in your life or do you feel the need to repay the source and make an excuse to deflect the compliment?  Women who are needy and have low self-worth attempt to control others by being the giver. In order to receive love, you must show your vulnerability, which means letting go of image management. Show the universe that you are grateful for its love and that you welcome more be receiving with gratitude. 5.) Do you settle for less than you desire in love, work, money, and health?  Settling means that you feel the need to grasp whatever is immediately available because you don’t think you can have more. In addition to narrow-minded thinking, this belief implies a sense of lack and neediness on your behalf.  As you believe and act, so shall you receive. As Deepak Chopra says, “Go first-class all the way and the universe will respond by giving you the best.”   Heather Hans, LCSW, MSW, MBA, CPIC, is a Visionary, Healer & Teacher, and the author of The Heart of Self-Love: How to Radiate with Confidence. It is Heather's firm belief that loving oneself is necessary to have fulfilling relationships and a successful life.
