Coming Out of the Shadows

I was in a long-term, happy marriage. I was blessed to be the mother of beautiful children. I had my own software company.  To many, it may have seemed like, “She’s got it all.”

But there was still something missing.

I was still experiencing chronic illness and…and what?

I dove deep within and found some insidious little blocks living in the inner recesses of my being. These blocks had been put in place to keep me safe.  “Don’t show yourself fully.” “It’s not safe to let someone in.” “You …

How something as fluffy as metaphors make for soul-inspired real world changes

Metaphors are potent vessels of transformation. They are used everywhere in our world to influence our behaviour. For example in marketing and politics. They have so much impact, because we don’t just hear them, or see them with our ears and eyes. They go directly to our gut. They impact us in a way that is much more direct than just words.

And actually, metaphors are even more powerful than that.

In a way: Everything is metaphor.

The main way that our body/mind/soul system make sense of the …

Listening

As we move into December, I feel myself yearning for the silence of winter. In the old way, winter was a time of sitting around the fire and listening to each other. The elders would tell the old stories, passing along their wisdom to the young.

Everyone knew this was a time of deep listening, which is one of the guiding principles of peacemaking.

Listening deeply with a quiet mind allows you to be open, connect to the person speaking, and look for understanding.

This type of respectful co…

The Essence of Relationship

A large part of the mystic path and sacred commerce is exploring the dance between the divine feminine and the divine masculine. The divine feminine brings ease, grace and flow. The divine masculine stresses achievement and acquisition, going and doing.

When in balance, the energies of divine feminine and divine masculine combine to move into meaning, connection, love and incentives that go beyond the bottom line. We begin to tap into what is needed for people and the planet.

This dance of b…

The Practical Side to Tarot: A Life Coach's Approach

There are so many myths surrounding Tarot. One of them is that it is completely magical and mystical and other-worldly. Where that is true, we don’t realize that there is also a very real and practical and THIS-worldly side to it as well.

Tarot shows us the journey of humans that is transcendent of time and space. It shows us the ups and downs, the challenges and celebrations, the motivations and resistance that we all face in our lives.

To me, these are Universal Truths … regardless of the f…

The Power of Divine Feminine Leadership

"The only safe ship in a storm is leadership" ~ Faye Wattelson

During the Vancouver Peace Summit in 2009, the Dalai Lama said, “The world will be saved by the Western woman.” This statement, requoted on just about every platform imaginable, was a call felt around the world.

This call to action to the “western woman” is our opportunity. It asks us to take responsibility to find the way in which we can answer the call. The world is begging for a more compassionate, connective, and peaceful a…

The Two Pauses

There are two pauses to be mindful of… the pause at the end of the inbreath and the pause at the end of the outbreath.

After we breathe in and gather there comes the upbeat, the pause… This is the raising of the conductor’s baton just before he beats the first beat. It is the “and” of the dance teacher letting the class know they need to be poised and ready. Then with the outbreath, the downbeat, the “1”, come the expansion of energy, of action, of engagement, of letting go… At the end of the e…

May The Force Be With You

 

Do you find you go through surges and waves of productivity?

What stops you from getting things done? Sometimes I figure out that some of my most productive days are ones where I let go of pushing toward a goal and relentlessly trying to make it happen. If there is too much resistance and everything is going all wrong, I know the timing is not my timing but divine timing. I must push against my tendency to get distracted or procrastinate in order to fulfill an aim that I had for the day. …
