What Really Matters in Life?

I was recently on a WordPress course called ‘Where is Your Audience Hiding?’ It was quite good and went deeper than I though it would. I had to look at what makes me unique, why am I different, and why would someone want to read what I write and who would that person be. WeContinue reading “What Really Matters in Life?”

A Return to Innocence

I’ve made a career out of being hard on myself. I’ve been my own worst enemy and abuser, experiencing cycles that delve into darkness, shutting down and withdrawing – closing off to the world and becoming unavailable. However, I do have the ability to carry on as if nothing’s wrong and fit in – whenContinue reading “A Return to Innocence”

A Divine Demonstration

I recently spent a week on Iona island in Scotland where I found myself living and witnessing a very powerful Divine demonstration. The island’s guardian is Columba, a very special being. On the first evening of my arrival, a friend of mine who I travelled with and had been to the island many times before,Continue reading “A Divine Demonstration”

An Opportunity to Heal

Not sure how anyone can escape being effected by the events happening on the world stage at this time in history. I wouldn’t blame any one for feeling anger, frustration, fear or even trauma. The world can feel like a very unsafe place to be right now. Propaganda or not, it’s a very challenging timeContinue reading “An Opportunity to Heal”

Surrendering – it Works

I have a lot of experience with surrendering.  Actually, to be more truthful, I have more experience not surrendering and using my willpower to bully on through, beyond where stopping, or at least slowing down would’ve been a better option.  Using my willpower to push past where I’m meant to go is very tiring andContinue reading “Surrendering – it Works”

Sacrificing for the Bottom Line

I’ve held many positions within organizations – manager, customer service front-line, running an owner’s million dollar business, project manager, contractor, and employee left to my own devices. Every once in a while this quote from Werner Erhard comes into my consciousness:

You are You, end of Story

It’s taken me forever to write another blog post simply because I really get that no two people are the same!! I knew this but it felt nebulous, or casual in a way. How can I write posts about growing spiritually if we are all different? The guidance I give is based on my personalContinue reading “You are You, end of Story”

Human Design: Utilizing Your Authority to Make Correct Decisions

Do you ever fret over making big decisions? Do your emotions get in the way trying to make everyone happy? Does your mind cloud things up with reasons, justifications and pros and cons? Or maybe you just blurt out an answer to end the torture! Decisions made this way usually are not in your bestContinue reading “Human Design: Utilizing Your Authority to Make Correct Decisions”

Self Love: An Important Discovery

Every single judgment we have about ourselves – conscious or unconscious – diminishes any hope we have for achieving self-love.  Every single slight or negative thought detracts from reaching our goal.  We’re programmed and conditioned into believing we are never enough.  Look around.  So much pressure, stress and strain to be perfect – how canContinue reading “Self Love: An Important Discovery”

Moving From Fear into Action and Engagement

At one point a few years ago, people who fear public speaking were coming into my awareness.  I can remember back when I had that same fear but was cured of it when the meeting-script binder was grabbed from my hands and literally tossed into the group by my trainer.  The group loved it andContinue reading “Moving From Fear into Action and Engagement”

Stay Healthy Longer by Listening to Your Body’s Wisdom

Our bodies want to help us stay healthy.  They have a lot to say and are a wealth of information.  We get busy, life is loud, and we miss the subtle tones of our body trying to get our attention.  No matter, our bodies will eventually find a way to stop us and make usContinue reading “Stay Healthy Longer by Listening to Your Body’s Wisdom”

Finding Your Humanity in Times of Stressful and Uncertain World Politics

When it comes to the topic of transformation, Werner Erhard is my go-to person.  I recently watched a video on compassion with Werner and Dr. Jim Doty, one of the world’s leading neurosurgeons.  I found it extremely beneficial in that I learned we, as humans, are hard-wired to care, it’s our default state and it’sContinue reading “Finding Your Humanity in Times of Stressful and Uncertain World Politics”

Creating a Future of Possibility

Imagine what life would be like without judgment. As far as I can tell, judgment is pervasive and automatic: we do it without realizing. We judge ourselves and we judge others. We have opinions and we make comparisons. Our brain does this in split seconds and before we know it, our opinion or judgment isContinue reading “Creating a Future of Possibility”

A Long-Awaited Change is Coming: Don’t be Surprised if Your Life Starts Shifting in a Powerful Way!

Back in the Spring of 2018, I felt an exciting, welcomed consciousness change in our midst that was having an apparent effect on people.  I was reading articles and blogs discussing significant changes taking place in people’s lives, starting with making big changes to their environment.  Many people were moving and/or clearing out their possessionsContinue reading “A Long-Awaited Change is Coming: Don’t be Surprised if Your Life Starts Shifting in a Powerful Way!”

How to Increase Your Life Force and Vitality by Paying Attention to Your Words

Our words contribute to healthy living and are just as important to us as good nutrition and exercise.  Our words are powerful and carry weight.  If we’re not careful, continually being casual with our word and promises may lead to unconscious feelings of guilt, unworthiness, self-blame and depression.  Sound severe?  Over time, this negatively effectsContinue reading “How to Increase Your Life Force and Vitality by Paying Attention to Your Words”

The Pursuit of Happiness won’t end in Happiness

Just the nature of “being in pursuit” implies something is missing, akin to the grass is always greener on the other side.  The one in pursuit believes he or she lacks the very thing they are pursuing.  In the act of pursuit, what you’re after, in this case ‘happiness’, will always elude you.  That’s theContinue reading “The Pursuit of Happiness won’t end in Happiness”

Authenticity: Being True to Yourself

I hear the word “authentic” a lot.  It’s one of those words that have an assumed meaning, like one we can almost pull out of our heads to describe.  I wanted to focus on this word specifically and apply it to my own life.  I wanted to know if I was being authentic.  Being genuineContinue reading “Authenticity: Being True to Yourself”

Freedom: Now You Can Have the Keys!

Take a minute to ponder these questions: What does freedom look like in your life?  How would you know if you were free?  And, why is freedom so important?  In the past, I associated freedom with the physical, through my body.  Running always felt like freedom to me, however, there have been few times inContinue reading “Freedom: Now You Can Have the Keys!”

How to be Free of Negative Circumstances by Taking Self-Responsibility

No one wants to be told you’re the source of your own misery and suffering.  If you’re blaming others and circumstances for your predicaments and unhappiness, you’re missing a golden opportunity for some amazing changes and growth to take place in your life.  Misery and suffering come from within but it’s not who you areContinue reading “How to be Free of Negative Circumstances by Taking Self-Responsibility”

Am I Selfish if I Love Myself? Uncovering the Myths and Lies of Self Love

Some people believe it’s selfish or vain to love yourself.  You may have even heard it’s unhealthy.  This is a myth and a lie.  Many people haven’t experienced what it means to love themselves, or what it entails.  Imagine the looks you might get from people you know if you were to suddenly announce outContinue reading “Am I Selfish if I Love Myself?
