Birthing A Dream

By Business Growth, Personal Growth 2 Comments

Birthing a dream – an idea, a product a service, a business – is much like giving birth to a baby: It is a process, it can be extremely painful and we don’t know exactly how long it will take. I remember my first pregnancy vividly. By the time I was in my 9th month I’d walk the hill where I lived every night, chanting with every step: “Come baby, come! Come baby, come!”. I was sick of being uncomfortable,…

Are You Lying To Yourself Too?

By Personal Growth, Self Care 4 Comments

I was on retreat with my mentor last week and during a laser coaching session, I asked her what she saw as my “blind spot” (this is an area of our self that we are not aware of, but is usually obvious to others). We had an agreement amongst the group that if we put ourselves in the circle and asked for laser coaching, she was going to be brutally honest. I wanted that. It’s part of the reason I…

How’s Your Engine Running?

By Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care One Comment

      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 him to come see me for months, the only reason he finally gave in and came was that it was seriously hindering his golf game!…

Small changes. Big Difference.

By Personal Growth 14 Comments

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 to wake up. Being pissed off that I had woken up at all! I was one of the “walking dead”. I did things because I…

Feeling Challenged?

By Personal Growth 7 Comments

 Why is is that we seem to feel ashamed when we are being challenged in our lives? As if we  “shouldn’t” have problems? I’ve noticed It seems to be even more challenging the smarter and more successful we become. We feel we “should”: … know better … be able to handle it alone … not even be feeling the way we feel! These judgements often cause us to withdraw and not want to talk about what’s going on, even with our…

Feeling “Wonky” too?

By Personal Growth 7 Comments

Note: I define “Wonky” as feeling “off”; experiencing rapid  and unusual shifts in  mood and energy levels. I’ve been on a bit of an emotional roller coaster for the past 24 hours or so. It started about 4:30 pm yesterday. I was having a great day. I had had sessions with 3 different clients in the morning. They are all making great progress in their journey of creating a life that is joyful and meaningful for them and had lots…

Opening Up To New Possibilities

By Business Growth, Personal Growth 6 Comments

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 experience or outcome. It made sense to me as I have long believed that we create our reality by what we choose to think, believe…

5 Reasons to Love Your Body Just the Way it is (And how you can start if you don’’t!)

By Personal Growth 3 Comments

Your body is your home! It’’s where you live. Like it or not, it’s the only one you’’ve got.  It’’s with you all the time, so it really suits to to find a way to love it. Just like your physical house, if you don’’t love it you’’ll be less likely to have friends over and you certainly aren’’t going to show it off! You also aren’’t as likely to spend money on it, or fix it up, and in the…

The Right-ness of You

By Personal Growth 8 Comments

Growing up, whenever I did something that did not meet the expectations of someone else I heard “What’s WRONG with you?” (I cringe when I think how many times I’ve said this to my own children!!!) In my work, I often help my clients clear blocks to their success by shifting their mindset (beliefs they have about themselves, life and what is possible for them, that they may not be aware of, and that are not in alignment with who…
