Swiha Announces the 2012 Toe Reading Conference Honoring Peoples Past Experiences

The art of Toe Reading is on the rise, as it is being learned and practiced worldwide.  For anyone interested in learning or rediscovering Toe Reading, SWIHA invites people from around the world to attend the upcoming “Toe Reading Conference 2012: Honoring People’s Past Experiences” January 28 and 29, 2012. Founder of Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA) in Tempe, Arizona, KC Miller, is the Master Toe Reader behind Soul Speak™, a new technology for healing the past and learning how to step into one’s own destiny.  She says that “beautiful transformations will often be witnessed right before your eyes as a Toe Reader.”

Intention Setting and Organization for Self Growth in 2012

If you have not already done so, or would like to re-evaluate what goals you have set for 2012, let’s go there, shall we? Notice the word ‘Resolution’ was not used.

Resolutions can oftentimes end up in failure. In the words of Anthony Robbins, the founder of the coaching movement, “Resolutions only require words, Results require ACTION.” To take this a step further…right action combined with right Intention will help you achieve sustainable Goals while developing new habits and healthy behaviors.

So what does all of this have to do with de-cluttering and getting organized?

  • De-cluttering is to remove clutter from.
  • Organizing is to arrange in working order

As you look back at 2011 identify the areas of your life that you are not satisfied with. These areas could include; relationships, health, fun & recreation, money, personal growth, career, your physical environment and spirituality.

Ask yourself why you are not happy with the particular areas.

The annoyances that you have identified in each area identified is clutter! It could be the physical clutter that is there for you to see every day and is a cause of stress for you and your family, perhaps it is conversations with people that leave you emotionally drained, maybe it is the volunteer activity that you are still doing for all the wrong reasons that takes up too much of your valuable time. Clutter is clutter…in your space, in your time in your life.

Now look forward to 2012…

A clean slate, 365 days to live a life with right intention. Now look at the areas of your life again. How do you want them to be? Be specific, write it down. For example a resolution would be to lose a specific number of pounds, which by the end of January has already lost its luster and you are right back to your old habits.

Setting the right Intention would sound like this… “In 2012 I will be mindful of when I eat, how I eat, why I eat, what I am eating and how much I am consuming so I can have more energy and feel better.

This shift from a static number in the resolution to the imagery of intention setting activates the parts of the brain that support long term success. Stephen Covey says in the 7 Habits of Highly Successful People “Begin with the End in Mind,” in other words putting the elements of your life into working order.

You are now going beyond a resolution; you are setting the right intentions for the New 2012 Year.

Now go and take that clean slate and set intentions for your best year ever. What are the areas of YOUR life that need de-cluttering and organizing?

This brings us to the next area of foucs – O R G A N I Z A T I O N! Organization is the Foundation of all Growth.
There is a shift happening and part of the shift is a sharing of philosophies and thoughts on living an optimal life.
On the path of Self Growth there are many layers of beliefs and ways of thinking and being that are peeled away to reveal the true self. The layers involve elements from the past and present that affect how you move forward into the future you are dreaming of.  One of the layers that hold many people back is disorganization and excess of clutter.

Organization is the foundation of all GROWTH.

This is something that all the great philosophers and spiritual teachers know and live by. In their work the answers are there if you are ready to hear the lesson…when the student is ready the teacher arrives…and yes, without clutter.

In the book Change your Thoughts Change your Life, Dr Wayne Dyer interprets the Tao Te Ching. Dr Dyer shares an interpretation that for the rest of the world makes this 5,000 year old teaching by Lao-tzu very easy to absorb. In the 77th verse it says…”when it is surplus, it reduces; when it is deficient, it increases.”  It is asking us to put surpluses back into the world to decrease deficiencies that exist elsewhere.

Think about what you have too much of that you can share.

Is your home overflowing with things that are no longer useful or beautiful to you? Do you have an excess of time in your schedule that you can share in a meaningful way, like volunteering at a local school? Do you have an abundance of love and energy that is ready to be shared?

People who practice Feng Shui, an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics, will tell you that eliminating clutter is the most important first step in bringing peace, serenity and simplicity into your life.

If you want simplicity and peace then you need to create an environment that supports that desire.

By eliminating the things in your life that are no giving you energy but taking it away, you will open up space for things, people and events that will bring great joy and energy.

In his book Harmonic Wealth, author and teacher James Ray asks “what are you surrounding yourself with?” The universe loves order …a chaotic external world is a reflection of a chaotic inner world.

Are you living in a swirl of chaos?

If clutter and disorganization are an outward sign of stuck energy, then now is the time to have a close look at where the chaos shows up in your life. This clutter can show up in your home as an excess of stuff, in your office as too much paper, schedules that are overflowing and cause great stress, or in relationships that have run their course however you keep hanging on.

By freeing up space in your home, calendar and life you are allowing space to exist. The moments between are the ones that are needed the most, however, they also cause the greatest fear.

In order to receive any more into your life you have to let go of what is no longer serving you.

Clean out what no longer serves you so you can make space for opportunities and possibilities.

Activate the Law of Attraction with a Vision Board of Your Own

Vision Board?

What is a Vision Board?

A Vision Board (also called a Treasure Map or a Visual Explorer or Creativity Collage) is typically a poster board on which you paste or collage images that you’ve torn out from various magazines.  It is a simple, but very powerful visualization tool which activates the universal Law of Attraction so you can begin manifesting your dreams into reality!  Basically, the law of attraction states that we attract into our lives anything that we give attention to, regardless whether it’s negative or positive.
Why would I create a Vision Board?

The idea behind this is that when you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live, or where you want to vacation, your life changes to match those images and those desires.

A VISION Board adds clarity to your desires, and feeling to your visions.

How will I create my own Vision Board?

We will start the workshop with a meditation to help guide you to your own word theme for your Vision Board.  Finding a word that resonates with the direction you are heading, holding that one word in your mind throughout the year and letting this word guide your actions.

Join a Vision Board Workshop, brought to you by Elaine Shannon…Empress of Inspiration!

Join Elaine Monday, January 23, 2012 at 3pm (Pacific time) on her Ustream channel, to participate in this Live Online event!

During the workshop you will search in magazines to find the visuals and words that bring that ‘Word’ to life for you in 2012.  For instructions and a supply list needed to complete your 2012 Vision Board, please visit Elaine’s website at:

For Virtual attendees, please have a large size board, plus a variety of magazines for the pictures and words.  Scissors, tape or glue and a sense of adventure and excitement about the coming year are also needed.

I am no longer cursed by poverty because I took possession of my own mind, and that mind has yielded me every material thing I want, much more than I need. But this power of mind is a universal one, available to the humblest person as it is to the greatest.” ~ Andrew Carnegie, famous industrialist

Happy Vision Boarding and Manifesting what you really want!  🙂  Students in the Life Coaching program at SWIHA also use vision boards as a useful tool to Manifest your desires. ~ Blessings ~

Real Experiences In Toe Reading Education

By reading your toes, the story will unfold… Are you walking your destined path?

Did you know that everything that happens in our lives is recorded holographically into our feet?  This is the very foundation of Toe Reading!  Major traumas, dramas, personality tendencies and destiny factors are all revealed in the shape of our toes.  As KC miller, master Toe Reader puts it, “Everything is Something,” which is so true in Toe Reading/Soul Coaching.  Three students recently shared their Online Toe Reading Education experience.


Toe reading fits into my life by reminding me that the path that I choose to walk gets etched in my toes. If I want to see where I have been I can read my toes and adjust my path accordingly. I still personally dislike toes but I found this class very interesting and accurate. I enjoy learning new things and although I wouldn’t have just chosen this class for myself, I am very glad that I had a chance to take it and learn more about myself. ~ Brittany Nesmith

I totally enjoyed this class from a spiritual perspective. I think it has allowed me to open up inside and identify some old issues that were hidden under the surface. It has worked hand in hand with my yoga practice. As I continue to explore spiritual work in yoga and my belief systems, I can check in with my toes to intuitively gauge my process and make changes accordingly (vision statement). ~ Troy Timmons

At first, I was a bit skeptical, and I still get a bit embarrassed saying I study toe reading, but I have to admit that I do have interest in working more on this art. I hope that I will be able to do more readings via photos from my friends and others who might find it interesting. I’m not sure at this time how it will fit into my life, but I leave that up to the universe to decide. I think that as the year goes on and I learn more that it is possible I will be able to find a more defining roll for toe reading other than my current “I’m exploring” stage. ~ Susan Morgan

You too can take the first step towards becoming a Registered Toe Reader, and learn to Connect Sole to Soul!  It is true – everything that happens in our lives is recorded holographically into our feet.  If you too are skeptical about this modality, you can first begin to learn the elemental language of toe reading  by discovering the Toe Elements, and/or sign up for complimentary 7-day mini-sessions, teaching you the basics of Toe Reading… toe by toe.  Learn to love the language the toes metaphorically speak.

As a Soul Coach you will be Restoring HOPE by Honoring Other’s Past Experiences.

Ken Hegan, National Post journalist had the opportunity to visit Southwest Institute of Healing Arts and have a Toe Reading conducted by KC Miller herself!  He recently shared his experience in a clever article he published in the Nation Post, titled “Soul Man.”  Since he knew nothing about this art before his experience, he got his toes mixed up in the reading since he did not know what toe was what in his recording.  However, despite this, he was so grateful for his Toe Reading adventure and thanked KC profusely.  To say the least, Ken was inspired by his visit to SWIHA and is now “walking the path to his destiny.”

If you are looking to have your toes read by a Toe Reader, visit and explore your options.

The TOES are WINDOWS to the SOUL!

Is Achieving Success Intriguing To You?

Does the idea of being successful far beyond even your own expectations intrigue you?

High Performance Personality & NLP Workshop
Be successful far beyond even your own expectations!

Personality training and exploration is about understanding the basic inherent characteristics that make us who we are and why we act the way we do.
The Global Community of Neuro Linguistic Programming (GCNLP) is hosting a free half day training.  SWIHA Life Coaches, Andrew Alex and Rhonda Robbins, will be presenting sessions to explore human behavior, accelerated learning techniques and personality typology with the intention of bringing individuals to heightened levels of awareness and being – resulting in increased interpersonal synergy, communications, dynamics and productivity.

Most individuals rely on a familiar set of skills and behaviors as they navigate life and the workplace. Often to create success we must first cause a “pattern interrupt.”  Understanding personality styles, core motivational needs, personality strengths and weaknesses is powerful. As we begin to understanding ourselves and others we experience improved communications, more effective relationships.  Learn new strategies for creating powerful, resourceful states of being and prosperity.

Want to take your life or business to the next level? Want to revamp your corporate culture, increase communication, productivity and profits?  Are you anxious to achieve your target goals and reach your dreams? Are you serious about taking your game to the next level?  If you answered yes, you must start by changing your thoughts –one thought at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time.

Everyone knows that success and change in any organization starts at the top –

Changing a corporation starts with changing a CEO.

Changing a marriage relationship starts one person at a time.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is about learning to use the language of the mind to consistently achieve specific and desired outcomes by studying, analyzing and implementing new behaviors to produce excellence.
Forward thinking lawyers are using NLP techniques with witnesses and jurors to connect with jurors on a new level.  The results are amazing!   These successful lawyers have studied and practice advanced behavioral strategies enabling them to occupy the “space in the jurors’ mind” that creates a  unique bond and rapport that brings about the same community of thought, which ultimately translate to a winning client award.

Andrew Alex has  personally elevated his law practice by employing NLP techniques.  It is an amazing leap from the abstract classroom learning experience to implementing NLP strategies into my daily work.  If I can do it, anyone can do it with good training and a little practice.

You are invited to join GCNLP for this FREE half day workshop on May 5 as two high-performance individuals present information destined to change your life.
