What inspires our creative abilities? Is it abstract like a color on a billboard we noticed while driving down the interstate? Or is it something that someone said or did which creates a different thought process within us? Our senses function with sights, sounds, smells and feelings to guide us into making choices; awakening our creative juices, inspiring us to dream.
We can be greatly…Continue
Like many people in Canada and the US these days, I’ve been intrigued by the Trump vs. George Conway feud. Trump has never shied away from a good scrap. The list of his adversaries wraps all around Washington and then some, and on a given weekend we can typically find him spewing out vicious tweets about his latest adversary.
George Conway has been a staunch Republican but he became disillusioned by Trump over the Muslim ban and ever since that time, he’s made it clear that Trump no…Continue

What really overwhelms us in various situations is that we tend to fear that the outcome of our efforts won’t be the way we want it.
And this is the major cause for how we shoot ourselves in the foot.
If we are concentrating too much on…Continue

It is important to encourage kids to expand their intuition, to better understand the power of their feelings and thoughts, and recognize their own inner guidance. We have the opportunity to set an example of mindfulness for kids (and some adults too). We all have the power to choose our thought focus… which in turn attracts our experience. Kids can be taught that what…Continue
Abstract: How living in an addicted society can keep our destructive habits overlooked and considered part of how life is. How we loose sight of our disconnection with self and our source. Deluding ourselves into believing that using fixes will make our lives feel better, only to lead us down the rabbit hole of lack, fear and powerless. How fixes literally fixate our energy and personal power. A list of common fixes we often dismiss. How to release these destructive…Continue

The life scenarios pass by oh so quickly, run through the filter of our absence or our presence. We are either there, really there, or we are vaguely absent as the breaths, the heartbeats, the rhythms of life pass us by. Is there something going on in the background, the underground, the basement of our lives? Something making meaning of our messes? Something that is meaning itself?
Is there some process, some illuminating movement, like background music playing to…Continue
What came first, the object or the word? We naturally believe that early humans perceived a world full of things and objects and then began affixing word-labels to them. In fact, the opposite is true.
Early humans did not perceive the world primarily through the left hemisphere of their brains (LH) in the way we do now. Engagement with the world was first and foremost a right hemisphere (RH) engagement. Remember from Part One the different ways the two hemispheres of the brain have of…Continue

International Women’s Day is almost here, and many of us are looking forward to it. It’s a great day to celebrate women and to promote the cause of women and girls, all over the world. It’s important to recognize women on this one day but it’s not enough. I think that we need to recognize and support women’s value and women’s accomplishments every day of the year.
As International Women’s Day…Continue

Abstract: Our culture fears death, which makes its inevitability harder and adds to the trauma suffered by the dying and their surviving loved ones. A solution is to create a culture that acknowledges death by establishing rituals and customs that recognize and honor a life cycle that begins at birth and continues into death and the afterlife.
While death frequently takes us by surprise, creating a culture that acknowledges its…Continue

Abstract: We all know that death will ultimately claim us and our loved ones. Yet in modern times we’ve removed ourselves from the process, so neither we nor our dying beloveds understand how our bodies and souls separate in death. Here I’ll explore the five stages of dying by relating them to ancient mystical traditions that connected our lives with the planet’s through the five elements of earth, water, fire, air, and spirit.
As a thought experiment, try to imagine what the world was like for pre-literate humans. Certainly their conception of the world was different. But what about their perception of the world, did primitive humans experience a different reality? We naturally want to say no. Our senses have not changed and we inhabit the same reality so it seems obvious that, other than the changes history has wrought, pre-literate humans inhabited and perceived the same world as we do. The…Continue
