Navigating the Relationship Between our Human and our Soul

Life Lessons On Being Human And Feeling Better

“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”– Eleanor Roosevelt Introduction Eleanor Roosevelt was a First Lady, and she shared many life lessons. As a thought leader in her own right, she reminded us to be mindful of our lives in one way or another and take responsibility for our own choices. We shape and lead...

Much Love To The Women Who Paved The Way

It’s Women’s History Month! A time to remember women in history. And, boy, there are so many women in history to honor. In fact, we can honor ALL women in history, whether they did “great” things in the world or not. Just living as a woman means contributing to life, even if it’s for one other human. We can’t help ourselves, we are wired that way. We want to give and are made to give. Women give birth. We carry life in our bodies...

Love Yourself Enough To Be Selfish

We’ve all heard people say, “You’re selfish.”  “Why don't you do such and such?” “Why don’t you just go to school, finish your degree, become a doctor or a lawyer or something that has job security, or just get a job?”  When someone says, “you’re selfish” because you are not living according to the way “they” (whoever “they” are) wants you to live, it’s “their” notion of selfish that becomes more...

Take The Challenge – Stop Complaining

“What you’re supposed to do when you don’t like a thing is change it.  If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.  Don’t complain.”- Maya Angelou Following Maya Angelou’s advice is good.  If we can’t change something, we must change the way we think about it.  When we complain, all we do is fire ourselves up repeatedly and nothing changes.  We become a victim of what we are complaining about, and...

To breathe or not to breathe?  Great question.

“Breathe.  Let go.  And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.”- Oprah Winfrey We are all born with an inhale, and we all die with an exhale.  It’s what we do with all those breaths in between during our life that matters. When was the last time you thought about breathing?  Probably not lately.  You wake up and breathe.  You go to sleep and breathe, and during the...

Words Matter – How To Use Better Feeling Language

Words make us feel good or bad, one or the other.  When we use certain words in our language, they trigger thoughts and emotions around those words, and we are affected by those words, so it’s important to notice the words we use in our language.   I had a client who, like many of us, was addicted to thinking thoughts that made him feel bad.  I know what that’s like, because I used to think thoughts all the time that...

How To Turn Self-Talk Positive

"There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy."- Friedrich Nietzsche You know that loud negative chatter that’s constantly telling you negative things in your mind that drive you crazy? You can hush that voice with a gentle nudge by thanking the voice for wanting to protect you and surrender to the Universe. It’s a human wiring thing. As humans, we’ve been wired for impending danger since the beginning of time, so it...

How To Fall In Love With Your Heart…

“You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.”-Albert Einstein When Albert Einstein wrote “You can’t blame gravity for falling in love,” I think what he meant was that love is not a scientific or intellectual thing.  Love is the art part of life… something you can’t “figure out” from your head.  Falling in love with your heart is the best way to allow yourself to feel love inside.  Letting love lead the way is...

How To Own Your Own “Stuff”

Sometimes, we as humans, like to gloss over our stuff that’s sitting beneath what we say and do, often responding when someone asks what’s going on, by saying, “All is well,” when in fact, all may not really be well.  We may even be holding onto feelings like anger, resentment, grudges, or even jealousy under the surface that make us feel bad.  It seems like it’s a lot “easier” to blame others for how we feel, and not...

For The Love Of Humanity

Well, who would have thought I’d be writing again so soon?  I just couldn’t help myself this morning, just thinking about the women and girls in Afghanistan. I mean, it’s terrible!  Humanity is stepping back, uprooting any possible wholeness between men and women, at least in that region of the world.  I read an article yesterday about the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai, the young 15-year-old girl who was shot...
