Self-Love in Five Minutes

“Life’s give and take becomes blissful. We love life and life loves us back.” This is one of my favourite quotes from medical doctor and spiritual teacher Deepak Chopra. This is what happens when we’re able to tap the source of unconditional love. Many things can trigger a hardening of our hearts: the stress of trying to […]

Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit

A novel by Jeannette Winterson of the same name points out multiple ways to love. This principle, in fact, applies beyond relationships to absolutely EVERYTHING in life. Any event can be interpreted in multiple ways. This may not seem like a groundbreaking revelation, but it actually is if we live its wisdom. The meaning we […]

Trust Your Felt Sense

Your Own Natural Intelligence (NI) In an earlier post, I talked about how our “gut brains” contain many more neurons than our spinal cords. Here I’ll explore another amazing resource: the felt sense, which encompasses a distinctive quality of internal experience that registers in our bodies.  If tapped, the felt sense becomes a powerful decision-making tool. You […]

Brain Below Your Belt

Trust Your Gut We’ve heard it said before, but how do we actually do it? For some of us, it can be challenging, particularly if we spend a lot of time stuck in our heads or have become practiced at tuning into others and prioritising their needs over our own. But with a little awareness, you […]

Listen To Me

The more we don’t listen; the more we don’t hear, and the more frantically we long for it. If I could change one thing in the world it would be for all of us to become better listeners, even 25% better would radically change ourselves, our relationships and our world at large. The research is […]

Practice Makes Expert

“We get good at what we practice.” I learned this line from NLP Trainer Richard Bolstad and I love it. I also use it all of the time with my family and my clients. This statement is both the essence of Richard as a person and NLP as a discipline with its pragmatic and life-affirming approach to […]

A Candle In The Field

Every child is like a lit candle trying to burn as brightly as he or she can. Some children shine brightly from the beginning, automatically and at an early age, but others start faint and grow brighter as they grow. Sometimes their flames can be difficult to detect. In a field or meadow flooded with […]

“Real” or Imagined?

Your Brain Doesn’t Care. Visualise picking up a big, ripe, juicy lemon and feeling its nobby texture. Then imagine picking up a knife and cutting the lemon in half, bringing it up to your face, inhaling its distinct lemon smell and tasting its sharp lemon flavour. Notice as you do this, your mouth puckers and […]

Listening is Love

Listen with your heart  Listening to another human being with an open heart is a gift of immense value. But, truly listening without distraction or personal agenda, especially to family members, can often be a real challenge. Even when I try to listen fully to my husband, I sometimes fail, and he ends up feeling […]

Share Your Wisdom

Learn to model what you want. Caroline Myss, the author of Anatomy of the Spirit, one of my all-time favourite books, once said, “Share your wisdom, not your suffering.” This is one of the most profound pieces of knowledge we can live by. But, it’s not always easy to achieve. Our moods, setbacks, and struggles often lead […]
