7 Strategies to Transform a Broken Heart

How can you mend a broken heart? How can you stop the rain from falling down? How can you stop the sun from shining? ……Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.- Lyrics from the Bee Gee’s 1971 Hit SongWhen we suffer a deep loss or trauma our hearts can literally feel that they have been shattered into a million pieces. Or we feel that our heart has broken open and we are bleeding metaphorically. At times it can even be difficult to breathe. Our heart is both a living organ that…See More

What's Your Excuse to Procrastinate?

Most people at one time or other have procrastinated, which is normal but when it becomes obsessive and chronic then there could be an underlying psychological disorder behind it. Procrastination can result in additional stress, a sense of guilt and crisis, loss of personal productivity and social disapproval for not meeting one’s responsibilities or commitments. Avoidance also prevents us from entering into our creative process and keeps us from experiencing life to its fullest.…See More

How to Mindfully Manage ADHD

Even though it was only diagnosed about fifty years ago it seems that most people today have either dealt with or at least heard about ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Now there are variations of this disorder including AD/HD and ADD but basically the key behavioral signs in children are inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Adults with ADHD often exhibit signs of depression, mood swings, anger and relationship issues, poor time management skills, and procrastination. The…See More

Vitality Meditation

Many of my clients are finding that today's stresses are causing them to feel at times overwhelmed and despondent. A major part of these feelings is the lack of energy or motivation to get out of bed, to do what needs to be done without procrastinating or giving in to the feeling that there’s no point in taking action. To remedy torpor and depression, you have to experience the vital life force that sharpens the mind and focuses the awareness like a laser beam. The traditional Buddhist walking…See More

The Power of Affirmations: How to Make Them Work for You

Affirmations (meaning a statement said with confidence about a perceived truth) have helped thousands of people make significant changes in their lives. But they don’t always work for everyone. Why can one person have great success using this tool while another see's no results at all?An affirmation can work as it has the ability to program your mind into believing the stated concept. This is because the mind doesn’t know the difference between what is real or fantasy. When you watch a movie…See More

6 Techniques to Ignite Your Inner Creativity & Passion

Most of us were taught that creativity comes from the thoughts and emotions of the mind. The greatest singers, dancers, painters, writers, and filmmakers recognize that the most original, and even transformative, ideas actually come from the core of our being, which is accessed through an “open-mind consciousness.” In ancient traditions, open-mind consciousness was considered to be a spiritual awakening, the great enlightenment that dissolves the darkness of confusion and fear, and ushers in…See More

Expressing Mindful Love Through Service

Last month I discovered an obscure holiday called Random Acts of Kindness Week that starts around February 14th. Now this seems appropriate since St. Valentine’s Day is supposedly based on the martyred saints who around 200 AD performed marriages for soldiers ordered by the Roman Emperor to remain single. Their acts weren’t necessarily random but they were based on kindness and service.Today service, or Seva, as we say in Sanskrit, is essential for one’s transformation, personal growth and…See More

A Key to Keeping Your New Year's Resolutions

It’s that time of year when we reflect on the past and plan for the future, and that means resolving to change those habits or circumstances that we’ve been unhappy with. For many of us, it also means making the same resolutions we’ve made—and haven’t fulfilled—year after year. Even though we all desire or even need to make changes in our lives, whether we are aware of it or not many of us are resistant to letting go of old habits. When we make New Year’s resolutions we often have unrealistic…See More

Expand Your Consciousness with Meditation

I am pleased to have Brian Culkin B.A. as a contributor for this article. If one were to describe the makeup of the universe in one word, the most apparent word would be MOTION. The word we use to describe the motion of objects through space is ENERGY. All objects are made up of both as you’ll recall learning in high school physics that what we perceive in life to be solid is actually not motionless; in fact that table, the chair you sit on, and all other pieces of matter are also in motion,…See More

How to Powerfully Journal Your Meditations

One of the concerns about meditating that my clients often have is the fear that if they quiet down, a great idea will come to them and they’ll have no way of capturing it before it leaves their consciousness. I suggest you create and work with a mindfulness journal, a blank book that you can use to record your sensations, observations, thoughts, feelings, emotions, images, creative ideas, and messages of wisdom from your mind and body as you become mindful of them. When you write, be mindful…See More

Hungry Ghosts: The Wanting Mind of Depression

As a therapist in Los Angeles I’ve seen more than my share of patients who are dealing with various forms of depression and unhappiness. One common personality trait I’ve found with them is their unwholesome thoughts and beliefs that come from what I call the “wanting mind.” In wanting mind, we feel that our current state of unhappiness can only be cured if we have more money, recognition, fame, or power. Often we cause ourselves needless suffering when we ache for something that lies out of…See More
