Helpful Information During and After a Traumatic Event

The office of Unleash Your Full Potential Now!
is up and running after the worst devastation our communities have ever seen. I hope this finds you and your family safe and secure.

If you are in the Long Island New York area and in need of counseling due to Hurricane Sandy I am offering FREE short term services to help individuals process the trauma.

Helpful Information During and After a Traumatic Event

Trauma Response®

Immediate Traumatic Incident Stress Management:
• Avoid the use of alcohol and caffeine.  Alcohol is a depressant and as such will intensify the negative reactions experienced following the incident.  Caffeine will increase anxiety and negatively impact the ability to sleep.

• Drink plenty of fluids such as water or juice.  Avoid consuming large quantities of soda that contains caffeine.

• Use quick relaxation techniques to regain control of emotions.  Take a slow deep breath by inhaling through the nose, holding the breath for 3 seconds and exhaling through the mouth.  Upon exhalation the words “relax,” “let go,” “ I can handle this” may be spoken. Repeat the process a second time.  Utilize this technique when you become aware of negative reactions or thoughts beginning to occur.

• Become physically comfortable.  While the incident may not be under control, you can take back small pieces of control by taking simple action steps.  Wash your face, hands, replace wet clothing, and step outside for a breath of fresh air and a change of scene.  These simple acts will bring a small level of control to an out of control situation.  Repeat them as often as necessary throughout the incident engagement.

Stress Management following disengagement from incident:
• Resist the desire to withdraw and isolate.  Maintaining a connection with the people in your life is of the utmost importance. Maintain your support systems of family and friends.  If you feel the need for some quiet time, tell those around you of this need.  Ask them to give you some “space.”  Do not just shut down.

• Engage in simple exercise.  The stress reactions produced by the incident, coupled by the wide range of thoughts, will produce a sense of unrest.  Engaging in simple exercise such as walking, biking, and swimming will assist in dissipating these reactions.

• Limit exposure to the news.  We live in a media powerful world that allows us to experience events in real time.  The constant exposure to the incident through media will continue to trigger negative reactions as the event unfolds over and over.  Choose a news program to stay informed.  Watch the program in the early evening and allow yourself time to process the information and take appropriate action steps to alleviate the stress reaction that may be created.  Do not watch the news immediately prior to going to bed.

• Maintain a normal schedule.  Traumatic incidents disrupt the sense of normalcy.  By maintaining as normal a schedule as possible you protect some degree of a normal existence while in the midst of the incident.  During this time of stress it is important to continue to do things you enjoy.  Schedule time for recreational activity.  Go ahead and play your golf game—but don’t worry about winning, just have fun.  Make daily decisions and follow through.

• Set short range goals.  Goals provide a sense of direction during a time when confusion and fear of the unknown are present.  Attempt to set goals for 1 week, 2 weeks, etc.  Be certain that the goal you set is realistic and manageable.  By setting realistic goals you will avoid the frustration that always accompanies failed goals.

• Set limits for yourself.  Avoid the urge to push on without allowing sufficient time to relax and unwind.  Give yourself permission to take the “intermission.”  Listen to the “wisdom” of your body.  When you are tired... rest.

• Be aware of your feelings and talk about them.  Keep a journal and write your thoughts. If you have difficulty sleeping, do not fight the sleeplessness.  Find a quiet place and write your way through the sleepless nights.  The process of talking or writing will assist you in quieting your mind thus enabling you to relax and sleep.

• During the time period immediately following a traumatic incident realize that those around you are also in varying levels of distress.  Be tolerant, seek first to understand others’reactions and allow them space.

• Resist the desire to make major life changes.  Allow time for the incident to pass and recovery to occur before making major decisions.

• Eat well balanced meals.

• Remember your symptoms are normal having experienced a powerful negative event. Understand that during times of great distress “it is OK not to be OK.”

• Seek professional assistance if your symptoms persist.

Guidelines for assisting children:
• Help yourself first.  Be certain you are in a good frame of mind when discussing the incident.

• Be honest and open discussing the incident in age appropriate terms.

• Encourage talk about the event.

• Children may not communicate their feelings with words. Encourage them to draw a

• Acknowledge that being frightened is OK.

• Monitor and limit media exposure.  Allow time for discussion following exposure to
powerful media stimuli.

• Spend extra time at bedtime.

• Remain connected, tune in to their needs.

• Be tolerant during times of distress.

• Hug and cuddle with young children.

I AM...

Do you listen to the thoughts your thinking and the words you are speaking about yourself throughout the day?

One of my favorite Confucious sayings is "Watch your thoughts, they become words; watch your words, they become actions; watch your actions, they become habits; watch your habits, they become character; watch your character for it becomes your destiny."

I want you to take a moment now and complete the sentence, I am...
Begin to listen to your thoughts and words throughout the day and become aware of what you are thinking and saying about yourself.  Know that what you send out is what boomerangs right back to you.  You may just be attracting that which you don't want! If anything that comes after the I am... sounds negative to you it just may be time for a tune up.

Now, I would like you to rate from 0 to 10, where 0 is I strongly disagree and 10 is I strongly agree, how true the following statements are for you:
I matter.
I am worthy.
If you got anything less than a 10+++ on either of these statements then it is definitely time for a tune up!

You wouldn't think twice if your automobile needed a tune up.  Why?  Because it is the vehicle that gets you to the places you want to go to, right?  Well, aren't YOU the most important vehicle in creating the life you desire and being all that you can be?  The learning process doesn't have to stop.  We, just like our automobiles, require regular maintenance and a fresh perspective of how we view things to keep living our lives with purpose and passion.  I thank you for allowing me to be part of your SUCCESS equation in assisting you with changing how you think, feel and act so that you can have that which you desire in your life.  It's a journey, trust the process!

Scientific Evidence of Efficacy of REIKI Treatments

AUGUST 29TH @ 7:30PM





"The analysis of the effect of the new EEG technology for Gendai Reiki treatment" by Dr.Chiaki Kudo

Studies show that REIKI treatments significantly reduce stress, anxiety and depression:

COME EXPERIENCE A MINI REIKI SESSION AT OUR NEXT CIRCLE BEING HELD ON WEDNESDAY AUGUST 29TH (held each month on the LAST Wednesday of the month) @ 7:30PM. RSVP ASAP TO RESERVE YOUR SEAT by contacting Eugenia @ 516-456-4490 ($15.00 suggested donation, bring a friend $12.00 each). * NEWCOMERS PLEASE ARRIVE @ 7:15PM FOR INTRODUCTION.

Give the Gift of REIKI!  Special SUMMER Offer: Schedule an Individual session for only $60.00 for an hour treatment. Gift Certificates are available! Amex, Discover, Visa and Mastercard debit and credit cards accepted.

REIKI, pronounced Ray-key, means "universal life energy" and is an ancient healing method of Tibetan origin that allows the energy flow in the body to be corrected. REIKI was rediscovered in the mid-1800's by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese educator. 

There are seven main chakras within each of us. When these chakras are blocked or imbalanced, you begin to feel irritable and this may cause physical discomfort, pain, addictions and sickness (dis-ease). REIKI energy allows the chakras to flow freely in order for you to be spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically  healthy.

REIKI treatments are extremely relaxing & great for chronic pain. Many of my clients experience intense emotional release of energy, others may feel subtle sensations and some experience relaxation, tranquility and warmth. Regardless of one's immediate impression, REIKI always acts upon the recipient, even if its effects are not immediately felt. REIKI energy has a "logic" of its own and will flow to where the patient most needs healing at that time. A full session lasts a little over an hour. 

REIKI is an alternative treatment comparable to Therapeutic Touch or Polarity Treatments, in that it does not necessarily involve touch, and where one remains clothed. It's a type of "energy work" I have been practicing for several years and have seen remarkable results when working with people with life threatening illness, survivors of childhood trauma, and people suffering from chronic pain. REIKI enhances the results of other health care regimes and traditional medical treatments. REIKI provides a source of restoring energy while one is ill, under treatment, or in recovery. Come discover the amazing body, mind and spirit therapeutic abilities of this ancient healing system! 

Some of the positive effects of REIKI:

~Balances the energy systems of the body & can aid in prevention of disease

~Relieves stress and creates peace and calming by loosening up blocked energy

~Vitalizes and nourishes body, mind and spirit and cleanses the body of toxins

~Relieves pain and promotes a state of total relaxation

~Can aid in assisting and accelerating the healing process 

~Supports the body's natural ability to heal itself

~Helps with mental clarity and focus & lifts the spirit and creates a more positive outlook. 

Come experience the healing and stress relieving benefits of REIKI. I look forward to meeting you and am excited to help you along a healthier path in life. 


*Did you know that Dr. Oz endorses REIKI? Actually, his wife Lisa is a REIKI Master and she has helped Dr. Oz with alleviating migraine pain with the use of this powerful healing modality.

On one of his recent episodes, Dr. Oz endorsed REIKI as an alternative treatment modality to be used as an adjunct to conventional western medicine. REIKI enhances the results of other health care regimes and traditional medical treatments. REIKI provides a source of restoring energy while one is ill, under treatment, or during recovery. REIKI promotes deep relaxation and inner peace.
