Everything that happens in your life happens FOR you.

Meaning rather than, TO you.

In other words, everything is good – every event, every issue, every so-called problem. In this train of thought, there actually are no problems.

I believe this – I truly do. I speak it, I do my best to live it.

That is, except when something comes up for me that is a problem – like yesterday. If I looked in the mirror yesterday afternoon I swear I would have seen steam coming off of my head I was so peeved!

And that’s the real test, the real point where you see if you have just been spouting a cliche, talking your talk but taking a siesta when it came time to walk it.

Our lives are a classroom and we are in a constant state of learning – and it’s a good thing, really it is. For one, you never know what is coming around the corner and the lessons of today are exactly, exactly what you need to prepare yourself, to make sure you know how to get through it and succeed.

Sometimes, the thing that’s coming around the corner is really good – the super excellent thing you have been wanting and preparing for. And guess what, you DO get to experience it, this super awesome event, person, life, etc.

Isn’t that good news? Actually, it’s GREAT news.  Read More

Ever had a situation you know you had to deal with but it was just SO uncomfortable that instead of facing it and dealing with it… you became a poster model for procrastination?

I am an expert at that. In fact, I am a gold medalist on the Olympic Procrastination Team – Summer and Winter.

These things are not so simple as just a matter of putting the dishes off until tomorrow or delaying the laundry another few days. The very fact that you are avoiding something means it is a cause of discomfort.

Discomfort in the mind, 10 times out of 10, means discomfort in the body. And you know where that comes from: discomfort in your physical body equals disruptions or blocks in your energy body.

Think of that thing you know is unavoidable but just really gives you the anxious stomach. Or maybe the tight chest. Or perhaps the lower back ache. Or maybe it’s all three, plus a few more choice symptoms.

Is it making that uncomfortable call to a parent? Opening a stack of bills that gets bigger every day? Talking to a hostile associate? An issue that you’ve discovered can’t be resolved except through legal channels?

You know, you really know, that facing the issue would very probably provide relief. But there’s the flip side too – the reason for the avoidance: fear of what might get stirred up when the issue is faced. Read More

What do you want?

What do you want? Or, “what would you like?” if you are at the grocery store or being waited on by a clerk or customer service person.

You hear this question all day long for the little things: food orders, coffee orders, curtain colours, vacation plans…

But how often do you ask yourself this question as it pertains to the bigger pictures? Your health, your relationships, your love life, your career…?

Do you let yourself answer? No doubt you’ve thought about it in your head, analyzing and dreaming. Can you voice this answer out loud?

Seems like such a little question, “What do you want?” Yet its implications are huge. And it takes courage to face it and really answer it with honesty.

Case in point: I was out with a group of friends last year for a casual Saturday night of drinks and chatting and got to talking with one about career plans. This friend, a very good friend – smart, articulate, kind – was at a crossroads in his life. Many different options kept popping up that he was fluctuating back and forth between: everything from sales to education to overseas work and business analysis.

I could feel the unsettled disruptions in his energy and asked him that simple question, “But, what do you want to do?”

The way my friend looked at me, I might as well have said, “But why can’t you become a unicorn?”  Read More

I’m on a roll! While I loved my last gathering/discussion group on intuition and health, for the next one I am doing something a bit different.

On February 11, 2012 (Saturday) I will be conducting a fun free class on opening your intuitive gifts. Judging by the response so far, I think I picked the right topic. There is a real interest in how we can access our intuition and strengthen a natural sense that has, for the most part, been on the backburner.

We ALL have intuition and our own unique ways of picking up on and reading energy.

You know that energy is all around you, everywhere and everything. So of course it’s a good idea to learn to work with it!

We’re going to have a fun time, and even if you have no inkling of what your abilities are – come join me and I am certain you’ll be surprised at how intuitive you really areRead More

It was today – I led my first intuitive health discussion group and it went so well.

I had no idea what to expect, except that I really wanted to do it. And I am so glad I did.

It’s true that it doesn’t matter who shows up or how many. You just trust that the right number of people for that day and time will appear and good things will happen. And good things did.

We talked about our backgrounds, our journeys, and what brought us to this space today, specifically our interests in energy medicine and intuition. I also gave some illustrations (literally, my funny stick figure drawings) showing how our emotions affect our health and the relationship between the energy body and physical body.

All in all, it was a blessing I got to have this meeting today. While I charged nothing (monetarily) for this event, I feel I gained so much more in terms of the energy exchange and the opportunity to channel this flow and educate. After the group discussion I got to catch up with another group for group meditation, and then yoga for me. A very energy-flowing weekend thus far. Read More
