What to do? – The Bystander Effect
I saw this video on a friend’s facebook page and it really made an impact, especially with what’s been going on in my life lately regarding speaking up and being authentic. Please watch the video – you won’t regret it!
What we Think we Know
As it turns out, not much. Back in the late 1980’s I participated in the Landmark Forum. It was a very powerful and transformative experience. The processes within the Forum, many developed by Werner Erhard in the 1970’s, provide effective teachings to help you face your fear in order to live life authentically. In one…
Breaking Free from Imposed ‘Reality’
Piggy-backing onto my last post regarding organic vs artificial, let’s suppose, for example, we are all in a game, living on a game board. We can call it the Matrix, like the movie, or call it a simulation. The person who is ‘me = Donna’ is represented by my game piece, or avatar. I move…
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. We…

Manifesting Growth Opportunities
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. When this happens in my life, I take it as…
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 is…
Freedom: You Have the Keys!
Take a minute to ask yourself these questions: In the past, I’ve associated freedom with the physical, through my body. Running always felt like freedom to me, however, there have been few times in my life when my body felt the ease of running. What does physical freedom really feel like then? And what about…
