Impact & The Big Picture

In my own life coaching session this weekend, I saw a glimpse of “the big picture” which is SO much bigger than I’d ever imagined. That the “personal problems” I’ve been focusing on are incredibly minuscule compared to what is coming in (meaning the potential for absolute greatness is SO much larger than the seed-likeContinue reading “Impact & The Big Picture”

Life Coaching: Rising Together

Life Coaching helps catalyze growth and change. After 3 years of working with a Co-Active* Certified Life Coach, I am working towards certification myself. And I need some volunteers to help me practice the tools I am learning! The first 30-minute sample session is free (with a slight catch of additional time to discuss someContinue reading “Life Coaching: Rising Together”

Overcoming Emotional Overwhelm

Emotions are energy in motion. Their purpose is to move us, to spur us into action and even to experience empathy for others. Through fully experiencing our emotions, we learn discernment of what we want more of or less of in our lives. Meanwhile, when we stifle, suppress, ignore or deny our emotions, we becomeContinue reading “Overcoming Emotional Overwhelm”

How White People Can Put an End to Racism Starting Now

Our necks are precious. They are our lifelines. Major blood vessels travel through the neck, connecting our brains to our hearts. Our trachea, which carries the breath to and from our lungs, also lives here. Our ability to speak, to express ourselves and to live our truths also lives in our neck and throats. We often also hold our burdens and our tension in our necks and shoulders. When the police officer knelt on his neck, George Floyd’s ability to live, breathe and speak were taken away. “Kneeling on the neck bones” is an analogy for how white America, as a whole, has treated people of color and minorities. As a nation, as human beings, we can no longer afford to passively stand by nor actively participate in racism. Here, I will outline how we can begin to heal as individuals and as a nation.

Expanding Horizons

This world is filled with hurt people who, in turn, inevitably hurt others. Whether it’s done consciously or not, it is contagious. Each time we can remove the barriers we have created around our emotions, we free ourselves (and others) from mental and emotional slavery; even if only by degrees. In so doing, we becomeContinue reading “Expanding Horizons”

Unf#ck Your Brain, The Book

Unf#ck Your Brain by Faith G. Harper, PhD practically screamed my name when looking for something different to read while vacationing.

Either way, I’m grateful as f#ck because this has turned out to be yet another one of those life-changing books.Continue reading “Unf#ck Your Brain, The Book”

Dear U.S., Separating Kids from their Parents has got to stop!

This week I drove across my state while news continued to break about the refugee crisis at the southern border of the U.S. As I navigated the turns and traffic using GPS, without any loss of cell phone coverage, WAZE alerted me to various hazards including cops and roadkill while my kids slept comfortably inContinue reading “Dear U.S., Separating Kids from their Parents has got to stop!”

Tools for Fueling your Creative Fire
