Listening is a skill most people believe they have – but in all probability – they don’t. I would even go so far as to say the art of listening is rare. Look back for a minute – how many times have you been genuinely heard? Most likely it’s a very low number – unless you are fortunate enough to have a good listener in your life which is a true gift!
Take this a step further: What about the number of times you’ve really felt “gotten” when you knew without a doubt the person listening had a true experience of you? Rare? I’d say so. read more here
I love finding quick, easy, effective tools that help us reduce fear because reducing fear allows for more freedom of choice and for taking positive action in our lives. Emotional Freedom Techniques, EFT or “Tapping” is one of these tools. I felt moved to share this technique with you.
I was listening to a friend of mine the other day as she was sharing her story about being in a very traumatic car accident many years ago. She said it took a lot of physical therapy and hard work to fully recover. However, she recalled the panic she felt being trapped in the car, waiting for rescuers to free her and how this panic feeling is still with her today. She said anytime she feels “trapped” or sees someone “trapped” (like on TV) she is right back in that car, feeling panic again. Read More
I had a dream last night that I showed up to work without my uniform. It got me thinking. I believe we manifest situations and people in our lives for ultimate growth and learning, especially if these situations and people really get under our skin.

I’ve heard people say they’ve receive creative inspiration from various kinds of places. I can’t really speak to this because I have limited personal experience with creativity. I’ve always believed and said, for better of worse, “I’m not a creative person.” I couldn’t conceive of what being creative meant so it wasn’t missing for me, except, though, when I came across a creation that really spoke to me. I would be in complete admiration and appreciation for the creator’s talent! Read More
Darkness would have us believe it’s engaged in an all-out war with the light. Is it true? Is there actually a war going on between darkness and light? Darkness (our own fear) would have us believe it will prevail, that it’s stronger then the light. It uses our love against us and others by shutting us down, enabling us to cause harm to and/or turn us away from the ones we love. Read More
Being triggered into a reaction causes you to behave in ways you wouldn’t dream of under normal circumstances, and once the dust settles, you most likely regret your actions and wonder why you couldn’t stop yourself – again. This occurs probably more often than you like. So what can you do about it? Read More
