Kabbalah Class Progress

For those who aren’t aware, I’m working on a new class for DailyOm.com.  It’s a Kabbalah 101 class focused on the Tree of Life, specifically on how this is a blueprint for manifestation.  The Tree of Life, like the Chakra system, is part of our bodies but describes in detail the steps on how we…

I Thought I Was Done With That

It can be so frustrating.

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…
