Are You “Full of It?”

I remember the first time I declared that I was an artist. It was one of the defining moments of my life. It took me over 50 years to admit it. Why did it take me so long to feel free to admit that I was an artist? It took me 50 years to notContinue reading “Are You “Full of It?””

Modern Ho’oponopono

A few years ago, I read a wonderful book about the ancient Hawaiian teaching called Ho’oponopono, co-written by Dr. Joe Vitale and Dr. Hew Len, called Zero Limits.

Applying The Work of Byron Katie to the COVID-19 Contagion

As a peaceful spirit warrior, I feel it is empowering to embrace my feelings of vulnerability and resistance – to ask the hard questions – and work through them – to find the gem of truth in the lump of coal. Why?  Because there isn’t a moment to waste!  I wish to learn from everyContinue reading “Applying The Work of Byron Katie to the COVID-19 Contagion”

Many Doors, One Sanctuary: 10 Doors to Active Wellbeing: Doorway # 1

You are here now. Enjoy what you have. Prepare for the future.  How often have we heard someone say that? Sometimes this seems like it can’t be done, right? Or we worry that it can’t be done right. It’s all so damn confusing. The interesting thing about the future is that it is formed from today. I haveContinue reading “It’s A Beautiful Day”

Who’s Driving The Bus?

To be or not to be?   Why do we spend so much time searching for the reason for our existence? We ask and the ego answers.

In a recent interview, modern thought leader and author Brendon Burchard described a meeting with Oprah.  Before anything else was discussed, she asked, What is the intention of this meeting?   As Brendon explains it, Oprah is always seeking clarity – clarity of purpose and of time expenditures.  Well aware that there are only 24 hrsContinue reading “Always Arriving”
