Time spent with family over the holidays brings many gifts and some of those gifts don’t come in the prettiest wrapping paper but they are gifts none the less. Being around others with a very different perspective of life frequently serves as an inspirational spark for my writing. As I look at the state of our world and take notice
Today I want to explore a curious dichotomy of life. Most people seem to be so bored by what they know (jobs, relationships, daily routines) and at the same time are fearful of the unknown (life, change, what lies ahead). We say we want change but just so long as nothing changes. (Or just so long as it changes in
In King Arthur literature, The Holy Grail is a vessel that serves as an important motif. Different traditions describe it as a cup, dish or stone with miraculous powers that provide happiness, eternal youth or sustenance in infinite abundance. Today, we use the term “holy grail” to talk about something we pursue or seek out for its great significance. Now,
I was recently observing a conversation where a counselor asked a couple whether they saw each other as a friend. They pondered this question for a minute and responded, “yes”.

I love looking at the limiting beliefs and pervasive patterns that have a strong hold in our collective thought process so I can unravel the grip it has on us. I was waiting recently in the service lobby of my car dealership and heard an ad for a Preacher peddling his holy tonic water as the end all cure for
The experience of life is a very tricky one. We come into this world and often feel very uncomfortable being who we really are. We experience judgement and pressure for conformity right out of the gate.

I want to explore a mantra that can be used for shifting one’s perspective into a place of acceptance versus the energy of resistance that often shows up for us when something unpleasant happens. If you do a google search for ‘this, too’ what comes up is the adage “this too shall pass.” Unfortunately, this is how most of us
Often my inspiration for my blog is to take the patterns I see in clients again and again that unknowingly limit them from being able to create a life of fulfillment and write about it.
