Stop Driving With the Brakes On

24 Jun
Have you ever felt like you're driving with the brakes on? Generally moving in the right direction, but never having the momentum to get close enough to grab your dreams? One foot on the gas and the other foot on the brake, stop and go, stop and go... not quite exactly achieving what you want... I know you want that feeling of ease and flow and momentum, and I also know you can have it. Release the brake.

How to Change Your Identity

08 Jun
Anytime we think about ourselves, we attach our identity to “what we do” - or our titles and activities. “I am” is how we describe our identity. I am a writer and a photographer.

Go Ahead, Have a Mini-Meltdown!

28 May
I believe in the power of words to shape events. It might sound great in theory, but is it realistic? Can you "talk things better"? Yes, you can. You can't always control the situation but if you can, the right choice of words you say will most definitely have an impact and can potentially turn an ugly situation into a peaceful one. But what about the things you can't control? How do your words affect how you feel? How do your words affect how you respond? Your...

How Long Does It Take to Create a New Belief?

21 May
“21 days to a new habit!” There's an unfortunate myth floating around, that it takes just 21 days to create a new habit (or a belief, which is a thought habit). That's music to our ears! We love to hear that in 21 days we'll have a new belief that will magically erase the old belief and make us into a new person. The reality is a bit more complex than that (in a good way).

How to Get Into the Manifesting Zone, Fast!

15 May
There's a way to get into the Manifesting Zone (where you deliberately create the reality that you desire), that involves your eyes, and a little science. Take a moment to reflect about how miraculous your eyes really are. They take in millions of bits of information every second, and the brain processes that information to create your reality. But if you were consciously aware of all of the information your eyes took in, you would be completely overwhelmed and unable to function.

Give the Monkey Mind a Banana!

07 May
You’ve heard about the “monkey mind,” right? It’s what we call a mind that is "unsettled; restless; capricious; whimsical; fanciful; inconstant; confused; indecisive; uncontrollable.” (Wikipedia) The monkey mind is the nonstop chatterbox that starts up the moment we open our eyes in the morning to the moment we close them at night, and sometimes it fires up, most unwelcome, in the dark hours of the night.

What's the One Thing?

31 Mar
What’s the one thing you can do today that will make all the difference? And can you even make a real difference by doing just one thing? Yes :-) Have you heard about the domino effect? I’m not talking about playing with a thousand same-sized dominoes carefully laid out in intricate patterns on the floor - that's amazing to watch, but... ...I’m talking about the power of one tiny domino to topple another domino that is 50% larger.

5 Practical Ways to Use Your Thoughts

27 Mar
“The mind is everything. What you think, you become.” – the Buddha Sometimes it's hard to think in terms of thoughts becoming things so let's think about it in practical terms: cause and effect. Do you believe your life is a series of reactions to stuff that happens to you - like the whims of the economy, the mood your boss is in, your genetics, your hormones, the weather, new competition, an accident, a heat-of-the-moment thing that can't be unsaid,...

What's Your Selfie Like?

18 Mar
“If you want to climb a mountain, start at the top.” - Zen proverb Okay, that makes no sense wha--     Wait a minute. When you think about climbing a mountain, what do you think about? Standing on the… Top. Looking around at the immense landscape below you - even clouds below you - how cool is that? Rising above the cares of the world and standing on top of it is a rush, isn’t it? Even if you never...
