Learning at the Edges

I tend to push myself too hard for too long.  It’s a fact.  Don’t do as I do, do as I say.  LOL  I talk a good talk about keeping yourself in balance and listening to your inner voice and alla that because I have learned the lessons the hard way.  In my joy for…

Change Changes Things

Change can be very hard.  There are lots of quotes and memes about fear being the reason why we tend not to change, but I think we over emphasize that aspect of things.  Also, we tend to talk about change as if everything else around us is standing still and the only thing that is…

Outside and Inside Voices

One of the challenges in life is to balance the outside voices with our inside voice.  It’s common to see this issue when you become a parent, when you have a demanding job, or when you commit to a cause or career.  Different agendas are competing and it’s not about good vs. evil or right…

Keep It Moving

Emotions are meant to be felt and to move.  If you don’t feel them at the moment they will come out at another place and time, not necessarily of your choosing.  Even worse, if feelings aren’t acknowledged at all, they can act like teenagers, moving into the background and plotting another more extensive means of…

So Will This Happen Or That?

Many times clients come to me wanting to know what is going to happen to them next as if they are a passive recipient of their life and not a participant.  Most of them have a perspective on the spiritual which sees them as a student with a teacher who is constantly giving them lessons…

Words Vs. Actions

Not everyone means what they say.  I know…shocker…spoiler alert…but it’s true.  As much as we all know that it’s still something that trips us up time and again.  Sometimes because the person saying things is really good at saying things other than what they mean and other times because we really truly want whatever it…

Our Thoughts Do What?

This winter in the US/Canada has been just a wild and crazy as last year, if less destructive in a dramatic disaster kinda way.  Instead of huge storms coming in we’ve had arctic blasts that last for days and weeks and move deeply south into areas that aren’t prepared for it.  Even here in the…

Listen To Your Body

In this year of the Horse a lot of our lessons are going to come through the body.  Ok, I hear that deep sigh that just happened.  I bet you’re thinking that you’ve heard this sermon before.  Eat right, get lots of sleep, exercise, get a hobby, ergonomics at work, get up every 20 minutes…

Just Because You Can…

…doesn’t mean the universe is telling you something.  It doesn’t mean that’s a sign that you should do that as a profession or even as a way to make money.  Just because you’re good at something doesn’t mean you have to do it for yourself or anyone else.  Just because you have a skill doesn’t…

What’s In A Dream

There are all kinds of dreams.  Stress dreams (standing in front of the class in your underwear), prophetic dreams, sex dreams, informational dreams, and pee dreams (the dream you remember as you’re waking up that has all this water imagery in it.)  All dreams have meaning to them although many of them are pretty obvious. …
