The Power of Taking Action

By Uncategorized No Comments

“And… ACTION!” The director shouts and people start to speak, move … DO! This is what most of us think of when we hear “take action”. Doing. Being busy.  We all know that nothing changes without some kind of action, but some actions don’t look like “doing” at all. Like creative thinking. Like strategic planning.  There is a huge difference between the kind of action that is “busy work” (that makes you look like you are being productive) and the…

Getting out of the “COVID-19 Slump”

By Awareness, Clarity, experiences, Focus, Happiness, mindshift, perspective, SHIFT, Uncategorized No Comments

I’m here in California snuggling with my 3 month old grand daughter, Emilia. As I sink my nose into her neck, deeply inhaling that oh-so-sweet baby smell, I am deeply grateful to finally hold her in my arms. My heart is filled with joy! It was a 5 hour plane ride to get here. Traveling in the “time of Covid” is quite an adventure.  Like every great adventure: It involves taking risks; opening yourself up to new experiences and possibilities,…

The Power Of Focus

By Awareness, Clarity, experiences, Focus, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success, Uncategorized No Comments

By Matthew Gordon-Martin Focus is a word that I’ve heard constantly since the age of 5. If you are like me and have an inner rebellious spirit, then it is the word that you’ve deviously made your enemy. If not, then its the word you’ve been playing with off and on, maybe as a friend who you engage with whenever it suits you but not a best friend who’s integrated into all aspects of your life. I was taught that focus…

Searching for Clarity? Change Your Scenery!

By Awareness, Clarity, experiences, Self Care, Uncategorized No Comments

By Brandon Clarkson of Helen MacMillan Coaching We’ve all got to that point before, that realization that things feel stagnant, unmoving, unchanging. Nothing feels inspiring – with your motivation and energy levels suffering as a result and it’s usually a creative’s biggest roadblock. I’ve personally felt like it for weeks, maybe even months. As soon as Covid hung up its coat and promised that it was here to stay, I could feel all the energy I had for life slowly…

Your Perception Creates Your Reality

Your Perception Creates Your Reality

By mindshift, Uncategorized No Comments

What, courageous one, do you desire at the very core of your being? If you could clear the clutter in your mind to access your core desire, first you would have to see the clutter to be able to clear it out of the way. But even before clearing your mind, you would need the intention, the desire, to reach that core place within yourself. Healing yourself at your core requires the desire to do so. It’s not enough to…

Love Is On The Other Side Of Fear

By Uncategorized No Comments

I have a pretty awesome connection to my Soul. I seek guidance from that aspect of myself that has all wisdom, knowledge and understanding – what I call my “Higher Self”. During a healing session with my hypnotherapist about 18 months ago, I was told very clearly by my guides to “get a dog”. My very strong and immediate reaction was “hell no!”. I conveniently forgot about it until late last year when I began having trouble connecting with my…

The Power of Adversity

By Uncategorized No Comments

It’s been hard – no, impossible – to “go back to normal”. … Since the US elections a few weeks ago … Since my dear friend lost her son in a plane crash 2 weeks ago … Since my cousins kidney transplant last week Sometimes there is an (unrealistic) expectation that after a life altering event we get to grieve for a while and then things will “go back to normal”. They don’t. Here’s what does happen: Life moves forward….

Lessons from ‘The Void’: The Power of Intuition

By Uncategorized No Comments

Being in the void is about surrender and trust.  Trusting the Universe/God/Source to support you and guide you, and trusting yourself to interpret the signals/directions correctly. You have to let go of where you have been so you can embrace where you are going. It’s an opportunity for a quantum leap. A jump vs making small, sequential steps.   Honing your ability to trust your intuition – your inner GPS – is essential. On Sunday I made the choice to…

The Power of Failure

By Uncategorized No Comments

I have a very intimate relationship with failure. I fail at something every day. I am more aware of it now simply because I have made peace with my inner critic and I have a no negative self talk policy. (It’s not that I don’t have negative/critical thoughts about myself, it’s that I don’t entertain them once I am aware.) This allows me to gently redirect myself when I become aware that I have gotten distracted from the task at…

Lessons From “The Void”

By Uncategorized No Comments

Two weeks after my second son began Nursery school at the age of 3, his teacher asked to speak with me when came to pick him up. She looked a little concerned as she asked “Does he speak?”. I laughed and responded “Yes, but not unless he has something to say.” I’ve been in that place myself for the last few months. I have been very inwardly focused and a friend even called to ask if I was OK because…
