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 is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” – J.K.Rowling Choices, choices. There are so many to be made on a daily basis. Some are fairly benign like what to have for dinner, how much to tip the waiter, which shirt to buy, or what movie to watch. Then there are the bigger, more consequential choices. The one’s that could take days, weeks or even months to make. Whether to leave a relationship, buy or rent a house, or deciding whether to have children make picking a move theater seat seem easy. I […]

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 […]

Forgiveness is one of the most conflicting issues when it comes to personal growth and living a peaceful life. This is mainly due to the various interpretations and meanings we all have with regard to forgiveness, most of which we inherit from others and the world. Conceptually forgiveness is complicated, and it can feel completely insane when you’ve been injured by another person. This quote sums up what we are trying to accomplish with forgiveness. “Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.” ~Jean-Paul Sartre Forgiveness is about making peace with the people and situations in your […]

“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 […]

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Those who look outside, dream. Those who looks inside, awaken.” – Carl Gustav Jung I want to write about inspiration, but I’m not inspired. What a crazy conundrum to be in. The word inspiration stems from the Latin word _Inspirare_, which means “breathe”. Not surprising since feeling uninspired can leave you flat and listless. So how do we continue to breathe life into ourselves and feel inspired when we’re not? It’s a fabulous question and I’m going to try and answer it because I know that we all […]

“Happiness can be found in even the darkest of times, but only to those who remember to turn on the light.” -Albus Dumbledore As human beings we all have an inner flame that drives us toward the life we want. For some it’s a small flame, and for others it’s a raging fire. Then there are the times when the spark just goes out, and your left in a dark place where everything in your life feels bleak. Your flame can get stomped out by depression, heartbreak, transition or even physical changes in your body. The feeling of being completely […]

“Wherever you go there you are.” – Jon Kabat Zinn I’m very into circles. I like anything round because for me the shape represents connection, continuity, and collaboration. Many of the things that I truly love about my life and this world are circular in shape. The moon, the earth, the sun, my hiking loop, and my meditation pillow all center and ground me in the feeling of being whole and complete. Circles are shapes, but they can also be created with the human body and spirit. When we come together and join in a circle we’re uniting and bringing […]
