The Things That Piss You Off (the gift of triggers)

Gift of Triggers

My cell phone rings. It’s my husband. “Your Moms flight has been cancelled. We’re on our way back home”. My reaction is not joy at having more time with my 87+ year old Mom. On the contrary, I’m pissed! I was really looking forward to her leaving. I love my Mom, but for no obvious…

Navigating Self Doubt and Negativity – Emerging Powerful

self-doubt

The darkness was upon her. She could feel the familiar heaviness creeping into her chest. Her mind becoming foggy as the weight of self doubt descended upon her. It happened in an instant. Triggered by a simple comment from a friend. Tumbling headlong into the darkness she was oblivious to the rest of the conversation.…

A Healing Perspective

I was speaking with a client the other day about her long term goals for her business. When it came to the subject of her retirement, her whole energy froze. She said, “Um, what retirement fund?” I could feel her energy sinking fast as shame rose to the surface. I told her: “Stop worrying about…

What’s [Self] Love Got To Do With it? [Success]

Rumi Quote

I spent the first part of my life trying to be anything but myself. I am an empath. That is, I have the ability to powerfully feel other people’s feelings (particularly when they are trying not to feel them themselves). I have an acute sensitivity to, and awareness of, energy – and emotions are energy.…

Getting Off The Emotional Roller Coaster

emotional-rollercoaster

Growing up I was often told I was being “too emotional”.  In response to my emotional outbursts my mother would tell me, “All of life is in your mind!”, which I interpreted at the time as “get a hold of yourself and snap out of it”. Unable to understand the profound truth in that statement,…

The Power of Feeling “Good”

I am, unapologetically, a big fan of feeling “good”! (happy, contented, joyful, peaceful, calm). Having spent a good chunk of my early life depressed and feeling bad, riding the emotional roller coaster of doubt, fear, shame, judgement, criticism and comparison. I’m soooo over that! I wouldn’t change a thing about my past. Inherent in each…

How’s Your Engine Running?

      I was talking to a client of mine the other day. I had treated him for a shoulder pain sometime last year. He had had it for a while and had tried numerous approaches, including acupuncture and traditional physical therapy, which had not given any lasting relief. Truthfully, despite his sister urging…

Small changes. Big Difference.

I am passionate about life. Not just existing, going through the motions each day, but truly living. Waking up each day feeling grateful for my life and joyfully anticipating my day. Feeling free! I didn’t always feel this way though. There were many periods in my life that I dreaded a new day. Not wanting…

Opening Up To New Possibilities

Redesign Your Reality

I was introduced to a tool called ‘Access Consciousness’ sometime ago by a friend. It is a simple but profound technique that asks different questions to make us aware of what we think, feel and believe. They then use a ‘clearing statement’ to change our point of view, thereby allowing us to create a different…
