Emotional Body

We’re taught that emotions come from one place in the body kinda in the same way that we’re taught a heart is actually heart-shaped instead of this oval muscular organ.  Emotions supposedly “come from the heart” and yet that’s not where we actually feel them most of the time.  We feel heartbroken when we have…

Change Is Good

It is now officially October (Or the Christmas holiday in half the stores across America) and everything is changing.  The weather is moving into fall or in full swing depending on where you are.  Kids are back in school.  It’s time to change from summer to fall/winter clothes and get ready to check the weather…

Creating Good Habits

We’re used to thinking about bad habits.  The one’s that have results that aren’t good for us, the ones that are annoying to ourselves or others, the one’s that cost us money for no reason or prevent us from doing what we want to do.  When we think about these habits we’re focused on the…

The Effects Are Cumulative

“I’ve never been able to stick to one thing.”  So many people in the spiritual community, or seekers who dabble in the spiritual community, or those who look in the window and think about the spiritual community, like pretty much everyone else in the world, want to belong.  They want a community, a family of…

Adjust As Necessary

Life isn’t a straight line goal.  No matter how committed we are, no matter how much we strive, the nature of life is more Fibonacci than number line, more Hokey Pokey than line dancing. 🙂  Which means that no matter how well you’re doing or how far you’ve gotten, periodically you’ve got to pause, take…

Listen to Your Own Wisdom

I get lots of clients and students coming to me pointing out that they have a disconnect or a problem between what is going on with them physically and the rest of their life.  They are smoking even though they know it’s not good for them and they’ve quit over and over again.  They can’t…

Don’t Just Breath Out, Breath In

People come to me and when I ask them about their background in spirituality or what their practice(s) is or their skills or interest what I sometimes get back is a laundry list of all the classes they’ve taken, the healings they’ve been through, and the people they’ve studied with.  To which I wonder, “Yeah…and?” …
