“Growth of consciousness does not depend on the might of the intellect but on the conviction of the heart.” – Wayne Gerard Trotman As a human being you have been given the wonderful gift of thinking. Your thoughts generally allow you to make decisions, assess situations, and make determinations about you and the world. Your brain is powerful. It works with your body to initiate and control behavior. It also feeds you the information you take in from your environment, and helps you make sense of it. You believe what you think the majority of the time, and your thoughts […]

As a human being you have been given the wonderful gift of thinking. Your thoughts generally allow you to make decisions, assess situations, and make determinations about you and the world. Your brain is powerful. It works with your body to initiate and control behavior. It also feeds you the information you take in from your environment, and helps you make sense of it. You believe what you think the majority of the time, and your thoughts influence the perceptions you hold of yourself and the world. Your thoughts however can easily turn from friend to foe. In the darker […]

You’ve learned a lot of things throughout life. You’ve gathered information and knowledge from school, from your parents, and through experiences over time. You probably got a decent education in most things, but I would venture to guess that you never received a crash course in how to create, cultivate and sustain healthy adaptive relationships. Most of the focus on relational health centers on love, marriage and family because these are the relationships that give us the most fulfillment and satisfaction. However, these are the hardest relationships to learn from because they embody so much emotion, and the stakes are […]

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. – Carl Jung I don’t need to tell you how powerful the Heart Chakra is because if you’ve ever loved someone or had your heart broken you already know. I’m also not going to write a long essay about how you need to love yourself or love unconditionally because you’ve read it before, and you know that most of the time your intention in these areas is greater than results. Here’s what I will tell you about the […]

I truly believe that what we all want is to be seen. The desire starts when your small and never really subsides. The jumping up and down part of you that screams “look at me! Look at me!” longs to be noticed, considered, valued and observed. You know from experience that there is no worse feeling in the world than not being seen by others. It leaves you feeling empty and lonely. Sitting in a group of people where no one asks you a question, being ignored by the wait staff at a restaurant, or even getting cut off in […]

“If you expect nothing from anybody you’re never disappointed.” – Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar One of the biggest life suckers and causes of dissatisfaction is the ongoing practice of expectation. There are many types of expectation so we have to distinguish between them to determine which to relinquish and which serve a purpose. The harsh truth is that there are basically two things you can expect…death and uncertainty. All other expectation is directly linked to hope and belief. Of course there are certain things that you need to expect to maintain your peace of mind. You need to expect […]

“It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.” – Bill Gates Being perfect is overrated, and ultimately impossible. No matter how hard you try to do things just right or in a way that’s construed as acceptable there are always going to be moments of failure. It’s not your fault because society has taught you to pursue ultimate success and avoid failure. Doing things well is ultimately what gets rewarded. If you’re perfect you’ll be accepted, honored, praised and even loved. If you make mistakes or fail at a task you’re very […]

Sometimes I feel like I’ve had it up to hear with mindfulness, since it’s become the new buzz word in the arena of personal growth. When something is pushed so hard in my field I tend to get disinterested, and start looking for another way to think about the concept. Mindfulness is not necessarily a quality, it’s a state of being and a practice. We all aspire to be mindful, but it’s unrealistic to expect anyone to be this way all the time. Sometimes we can feel discouraged or bad because we aspire to master something that isn’t meant to […]

If you have children, or have ever spent any time around little kids you’ll know what I mean by primitive behavior. Primitive behavior is your most fundamental and reptilian way of acting particularly within the context of upsetting situations. When a child bites a playmate after having a toy snatched away, or screams and writhes on the floor when the TV gets turned off they’re exposing their lack of reflection, and their inability to regulate strong emotions All very normal for a young child, but sometimes as adults we don’t outgrow this kind of trigger-reaction behavior. Being responsive instead of […]

“Freedom from effort in the present merely means that there has been effort stored up in the past.” – Theodore Roosevelt How much time do you spend living in the future? Probably more than you realize because most of us are constantly worrying, projecting, planning and waiting for something to happen at some other time than right now. There’s a very strong movement happening in our culture toward mindfulness, and this is for good reason. The truth is that there is no other moment than the one you’re experiencing right now. It’s also true that most of what can help […]
