Gratitude

It’s the beginning of October, and I have been noticing the way the light is starting to be less bright during the day, the sun is rising a little later and setting a little earlier each day here in the northern hemisphere. It’s a time when nature is announcing Fall, regardless of what the actual weather is doing.

When I was growing up in Saskatchewan, Canada (which is north of Montana and North Dakota for my US friends), the Fall season was ...

Being Authentic

– Being the True You –

Your mid-September update –

I trust you had a good summer – for many it was a welcome reprieve from circumstances we’ve all be in over the past 15 months.

I was planning on sending this at the beginning of September, yet I could feel changes were in the “air”. I woke up in the middle of the night on August 31 and was awake for several hours – it felt like a “heads up”. Something big ...

Purpose

“Youth is not measured in age; it’s measured in functionality.”

I recently heard the above quote (which I believe was made by Michael B. Beckwith, though I’m not certain of that). It resonated deeply. My mother sounded young for most of her life and seemed to love adventure of one sort or another, whereas my dad always seemed old…

Years ago, a very wise man I know suggested that I forget about birthdays. Now that might be a radical thought to some. Yet I continue to ...

Stress, Anxiety & Fear

Welcome to June!

I love all seasons of the year, yet if I were to choose one month as my favourite, it would be June. I came into the world in this month and love the light, the birdsong, the promise of being outdoors more, the fact that it starts in Spring and completes in Summer, and much more….

What do you love about this month?

Its always a breath of fresh air to focus on what you love about something, rather than what’s ...

Dealing with Resistance

Happy April!

I love this time of the year, here in the Northern Hemisphere. The birds are singing, the buds are coming out as are some of the early flowers. Where I grew up in Saskatchewan, crocuses are purple and very low to the ground. Here in Ontario, they are multi colored. When I originally saw them, I thought they were some kind of a tulip! Nature has many ways to show her beauty, and in the Spring, we see new growth pushing up from ...

Taking Command in your Life

AKA: Setting your internal weather system

March 2021

As I sat down to write this blog, I was noticing the way the light is starting to be brighter, and the sun is coming up earlier and setting a little later each day here in the northern hemisphere.  It’s a time when nature is announcing Spring, regardless of what the actual weather is doing.

Many of us are less connected with the natural rhythms of nature than we were even a few years ago ...

Setting Intentions

Setting Intentions aka your 5 step process to experience more heart, and greater joy, happiness and love in your life for February and beyond!

I heard something awhile ago that caught my attention.  It was this (and I’m highly paraphrasing):  we lose our ability to focus on where we’re going when we say that all the pain, suffering and negativity that we see or experience is ‘good’, or is helping us ‘grow’.  Awakening and personal growth doesn’t require pain.  We ...

Being Kind

What does kindness mean to you?  I was recently talking with a friend who mentioned that people were taking advantage of her “kindness”.  This was a business situation in which she had not been clear and had extended herself out of what she perceived as a kind gesture.  The other person didn’t appear to understand that and hence conflict arose between them.  Sometimes it is kind to be clear.

How do you see Your World?

“We don’t see the world as it is, we see it as we are.” #quote (attributed to Anais Nin, and to Stephen Covey by some). I agree with the first part that “we don’t see the world as it is”, however the second part didn’t resonate fully with me. From what I know, we see the world through the eyes of who we think we are; the identity and personality we’ve grown into or adopted. It seems to me that ...

Desire is key to rise above Division

As many of us know, our beliefs about ourselves and the world are the lens through which we see and interpret our surroundings. In the world of duality and opposites, there’s always another side to the story or as we used to say, the “beachball”. (Where I grew up, we played with large blow-up plastic beachballs. Each ball had 6 different colored panels so when you were holding it, one side had 3 colors (say red, black and green), and ...
