On Self Forgiveness: Spiritual Surfing

By now we've heard the standard New Age explanation of our many mis-steps and foibles as we swim through this life: "We are not humans learning to be spiritual but spirits learning to be human."  This can neutralize our need for self deprecation when we say something we think we shouldn't have, make a decision that wasn't perhaps the wisest, hurt someone else without malicious intention.  Yet in many ways we are harder on ourselves than we are on others when we find ourselves…

Finding the Lotus in the Muddy Pond

If we were to see the lotus as representing our purity of self and the muddy pond as representing the thought forms that clouds us from accessing that purity, then one great way to weed through the mud would be to employ some form of meditation. While breathing exercises and blank-mind meditation have much to offer, the below offers a guided meditation for those who feel more comfortable using visualization as a tool:…

Listening to the Sound of Silence

The world that we have worked so hard to create has become a great force of energy.  We are all surrounded by such activity and life at all times.  Even when we manage sometime of solace for ourselves, the reminisce of dynamic activity echoes through the air.  With all the excitement that we are surrounded by, it makes it difficult to find the peace we have set time aside…

Older Women and Younger Men: an Appreciation

An older woman can satisfy a younger man in very special ways. Her accumulated wisdom and emotional steadiness are needed qualities for him. Her personality has fully blossomed, in contrast to the tightly wrapped bud of youth full of inhibitions and uncertainties. In addition, an older woman has developed a seasoned sensuousness, a lush appeal. Fading roses smell the sweetest -- petals open soft and fragrant, exposing inner delicacies, gradually yielding to time and gravity. Even the…

Discovering Your Love

Sometimes when people, moments or events bring you to have a loss of words all  you can is reflect.  There are blessed times where I am able to channel the Universe to help me articulate my thoughts and the words present themselves.


I'll share those words with you because things as such should be shared.  Love is meant to be celebrated.


Every morning as I walk out to my car at 4:22am I stare into the sky. I just look into the vastness of the universe and…

Personal Accountability

One of the most effective ways to acquire freedom within our lives and relationships is to become directly accountable for every experience that we encounter along our sojourns. Unfortunately the ego likes to point us in the outward direction because it associates personal accountability with blame and self-condemnation. Self-condemnation is threatening to the ego because it can't differentiate between true-self and false-self so in a fight for its survival it creates and sustains an…

Mommy! Look at the pretty colours around you!

Mommy!  Look at the pretty colours around you!


By William Bezanson


“Mommy!  Look at all those pretty colours around you!”

“What do you mean, Sweetie?”

“Just look!  They are all around, above you, beside you …”

Not knowing how to respond, the young mother at least knew enough not to tell her son to stop being silly.  She knew that it was important to encourage him in his learning…

Trust Your Heart

One of the main reasons that people come for life coaching is because they are confused. Confusion often stems from a limiting belief of some kind. Maybe you tried and failed, and so you gave up and are having trouble choosing a new goal that will always be a consolation prize. Maybe you were told as a child that you couldn't have what you want, so you took on that belief and forgot about those dreams. Or, you may doubt yourself and your abilities. One thing I know is that you're never given…

5 Ways To Meditate Without Sitting Down

The idea that you do not have to carve out an hour of cross legged sitting on the floor, sans distractions, thumb and forefingers super glued together to practice meditation might be a shocker.  The idea comes from a book by Adyashanti called True Meditation.  He teaches us that every single moment of our every day regular lives is an opportunity for meditation.  We can now stop referring to meditation under our breath as the “M” word.  This is a game changer.

What this…

The life coaching process has so much to offer, but even just the philosophy that coaches are asked to embody can be life changing. Approaching life through the lens of a coach has made me so much more aware of the ways in which I interact with others and how to enhance those interactions to improve my relationships. There are three key habits of…
