Feeling Loopy? Rewire for the New Year!

As we near Christmas,  it is inevitable to see patterns emerge, and a sense of “looping” and feeling stuck in a repeating cycle of events, behaviour or thoughts. Is this you?

The New Year is our chance for change, evolution, re-imagining!

We make choices on what to keep, what to leave, what to nurture, and what to let go. This is the Choose in a cycle of behaviour. We are lead by our own beliefs, what we are told to be true, and what we perceive as our needs and values.

Once we Choose, we then Project – we find ways to make these choices real, incorporating our choices in everyday life – who we speak to, what we work for, why we do what we do, where we go and how we get there.

The third step is to Receive – being aware of how your choices are being realised, how your values are being played out in your activities, relationships, words, thoughts and dreams.

As we Reflect, we ask: Is what is happening now aligned with our choices? Am I feeling fulfilled, happy, valued? Where did I go off track? And how can I make this better next time round? All very useful to evolving personally, and making the best opportunity of your life and circumstances. Dr Michael Carr-Gregg, adolescent psychologist uses the phrase “What Went Well and Why” created by Dr. Martin Seligman, the founder of the Positive Psychology movement.

Looping is about feeling stuck, seeing patterns reform, yet not knowing how to move beyond their grasp on your thoughts and actions, which sabotages your ability to move into a new cycle. The body’s ego or protective mechanism for survival wants to maintain the familiar, and protect it from change or disruption.

To escape this cycle, our thoughts need to be redesigned, redirected and re-imagined!  Ego needs to be told it’s okay to change and evolve, and step out of our comfort zone.  Change is going to hurt! Yes. “Pain is inevidable, misery is optional“, says Hyrum W Smith.

If you’re ready for evolution and personal development, Expect Me has the practitioners to assist you on your journey.

Teenage expert suggests ban on mobile phones in schools has health benefits

Expect Me has been working with one of Australia’s leading adolescent psychologists, Dr Michael Carr-Gregg, in bringing his current research findings on teenage mental health issues to communities across regional NSW in 2019.

One such event occurred in Port Macquarie in August, with media coverage of the event highlighting Dr Carr-Gregg’s suggestion that a ban on mobile phones in schools would benefit teenagers’ mental health.

Hear it from Dr Michael HERE on HitFM Mid-North Coast

See the event television news coverage on NBN News 

Read it HERE on the local high school community newsletter, Hastings Secondary College.

It isn’t surprising though, that by reducing the amount of distractions in the daytime by over-use of mobile devices in class time, the health benefits to individuals would include improved focus, greater inter-personal communication skills, rest and relaxation time, and time for growing brains to digest all that has been delivered in the class.

It may be controversial, but Dr Michael also proposes a mobile phone license for all students. Listen to his comments HERE or watch his interview HERE on Prime 7 News.

See the newspaper article on Port Macquarie News 

Dr Michael Carr-Gregg will be delivering his message to regional NSW in August and September this year, with the following events:

“Raising Happy, Resilient Kids” – Wagga Wagga Community Event, hosted by Riverina Bluebell – Get TICKETS

“The Real Wired Child” – Griffith Community Event, hosted by Hanwood Public School P&C – Get TICKETS

Why Vision Boards Work – Manifesting in 2019

If New Years Resolutions are daunting for you, here’s a great way to help guide you in 2019; a Vision Board.

To create a Vision Board, you need to set clear, simple intentions about what makes you feel happy, fulfilled and connected with your life, such as fun, learning, family, and adventure.

An old-fashioned way to create a Vision Board is to stick images, magazine or brochure pictures on to a large cardboard as an expression of what these values or intentions mean to you in reality.

There are now Apps and social media platforms for creating a Vision Board.

The Key: you need to do the thinking. You need to listen to your inner voice, your gut, your heart, your soul.

Don’t let the format of your Vision Board distract you from the importance of a clear intention. Wayne Dwyer can help you create a clear intention HERE

When you place your Vision Board where you can see it, you will be reminded of the good things that make your life worthwhile.

Through the Law of Attraction, looking at your Vision Board will keep you on track to achieving your intentions.

This is the crux. This is why Vision Boards work!

Your dreams and ideals, values and desires, when made tangible and visible, open up the possibility for them coming true, increases the likelihood of your body’s cells cooperating with these beliefs, and your intentions becoming more of a probability than a possibility. You’ll have announced to the Universe what you desire, and the Universe will honour your intentions.

No longer will you flip from one idea to the next losing sight of what’s important to you.

Visually representing your hopes and loves can change your life, one memory cell at a time. 

You will empower yourself to be responsible for the achievement of your own goals and dreams. Not only that, but if you’re motivated by the goodness you see in your life, you’ll feel better about yourself and what you’re doing in the present moment, knowing you’re growing small steps at a time in the best direction for you.

There’s a lot of high profile help to create and expand on your personal Vision Board:
Deepak Chopra – how to use this manifestation tool
Oprah Winfrey – beyond the Vision Board
Wayne Dwyer – choosing your own greatness

For a step-by-step guide to create a Vision Board, you can look at THIS from Mindvalley:      A powerful tool

If you notice that Health, Wellness and Relationships top your list of desires on your Vision Board for 2019, then find a practitioner who can help you achieve your goals on the Expect Me Directory HERE

Gut Health and Trigger Reduction, Naturally

Is bloating, stomach pain and reflux, inconsistent bowel movements and lack of energy distracting you from enjoying your everyday activities? Don’t want to eat, because if you do you’ll pay for it later? Expect Me Wellness Hub can offer you the next step to coping with gut health.

Knowing you, you’ve tried a wide range of diets, exclusions, and you’re really exhausted.

Whether it’s the food itself, or the way your body responds to the food, your body needs help to reduce inflammation and soothe the triggers that keep agitating the cause of your discomfort.

According to a recently published report into your gut’s health, studies have suggested that “the intestinal microbiome plays an important role in modulating risk of several chronic diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer,” and that “diet plays a significant role in shaping the microbiome, with experiments showing that dietary alterations can induce large, temporary microbial shifts within 24 hours”.

So trying a wide range of foods and juices is just what you need for a healthy gut – but which ones are for you?  For a local dietitian or nutritionist to help you fight the inflammation, pain and discomfort, read on….

Ask these local practitioners how they can help you get better gut and digestive function:

Digestion starts with your mouth, and we all know where it ends.

So let’s also be mindful of the taste and texture of your food, how it needs your participation to chew and swallow, and the importance of rest while you eat. Stressed-out lunch at the office desk or on the run isn’t ideal environment for good digestion. In fact, the Chinese have created a chart (see details) depicting your body’s biorhythms, that shows our stomach is best to cope with food between 7am-9am, and least at night time. Are you sleeping on an over-loaded stomach?

A gentle approach to the New Year

Do you really need more of this, or less of that? Didn’t we just go through that at Christmas time?

Now’s the time to contemplate a gentle approach to the next phase of the holiday season. In January our routine goes haywire, and holidays bring the heat, family drop-ins, play dates, and also quiet time to read books, watch sport, and rest.

With a whole range of external influences pulling our emotions from one extreme to the next, are they, or worse, the voices in your head, making you feel inferior, unwell, or dis-empowered this New Year?

If so, Expect Me practitioners are here to guide your holistic wellness, one choice at a time.

Personally, my best advice is to catch yourself in the moment, and feel the simple joy of what you’re doing – no guilt or envy. Rather than using the term “should have this, or should have that…”, let’s use more often the phrase “… I’m glad we…..”, and “…I’m thankful I could…..”. It’s a simple tool, and I use it all the time. I own my words, and they come from a place of truth deep within me. Go ahead, feel free to practice it.

Then ask:

Is it time to de-clutter?                   YES
Does my gut need calming?           YES
Do I have enough energy?              YES
Can my relationships improve?      YES
Do I need a fitness buddy?             YES

Expect Me has experienced practitioners to support a gentle health and wellness transition that empowers you, and complements who you are and what’s important to you.

The Cell Wellbeing Epigenetic Hair Profile Analysis Test and Wellness Report detects toxins, pathogens, nutritional deficiencies and food intolerance in a client’s body. After scanning the hair sample a test result can be ready and sent back to us from data collective center located in Germany via email in only fifteen minutes! BUY TEST NOW
Could a few strands of hair save your life?

Yes, when you know what you’re dealing with, you can take action to remedy the situation. Discover which daily nutritional and environmental factors are impacting on your body’s cells through the Cell Well-being Hair Screening and Environmental analysis.

What is Hair Cell Analysis ?

The Cell Wellbeing Hair Follicle Analysis is a safe and non-invasive pathology test. It measures the levels and comparative ratios of nutrient and toxic minerals found in hair.


Hair Cell Analysis is regarded by many doctors, naturopaths and nutritional therapists as one of the most valuable screening tools available in everyday and preventative health care.

Hair Follicle Screening (Analysis)

After years of researching and monitoring hair screening technology, We have secured a world leading process that identifies the primary reason your body is out of balance. The bio resonance hair screening test takes 10 minutes and the resulting bio profile reports, which are user friendly and highly visible, cover the key environmental indicators that are responsible for optimum cellular wellness including:

  • Antioxidants
  • Amino Acids
  • Toxins
  • Microbiology
  • Vitamins
  • Parasites
  • Radiation
  • Chemicals
  • Food interactions
  • Minerals…… and more.   Buy your home screening kit HERE

From the results of the Cell Wellbeing Hair Screenings, we are finding that every single person has some foods that affect only them. From this we know there is no one diet that is good for everyone. We also find that in the same family, different members are exposed to different environmental toxins. Hair Screening exposes the differences.

Other factors include such items as mould, yeast, fungi, heavy metal poisoning and parasites, or too much exposure to radiation. Any of these can be preventing you from being able to obtain good health or weight loss. Additionally, any of these can put the immune system under stress, having to work overtime to keep you free from disease.

The Process

You will receive the Hair Kit Folder with a one page personal details questionnaire (nothing too invasive just your name, DOB, address and email address to enable us to complete the test and return the Wellness Report back to you), Progress Report Day 1, Progress Report Day 30 (this if for your personal information ONLY) and a return to Cell Wellbeing Practitioner Envelope. We also require a sample of about 5-10 hair strands extracted from the base of your neck with follicle attached (or your armpit if you are bald).
We ask that you have someone assist you with this part of the test, use a pair of tweezers that have been sterilised with the Alcohol Wipe we provide. BUY TEST NOW
Important Information

Hair Screen Analysis uses the latest hair screening technology to identify the primary reason why optimal health is not being achieved. It also comes with a 34 page report of your cellular profile.  It does not claim diagnose, treat or cure and disease or ailment.The screening and report simply points out the areas that may need your attention in order for your to improve your general health and optimize your well-being. You may also take the report to your general practitioner, holistic therapist or compound pharmacist who can then concentrate on the areas that need addressing. It saves time, inconvenience, money, and best of all, puts you in a position to improve your own personal health and well-being journey.
The supplements, probiotics and minerals we recommend are available to purchase through our website or in the Shop, but this is purely at your own discretion. There is NO obligation to purchase from us anything other than your Wellness Report, but should you require assistance we are always happy to help.
