Do you occasionally feel the space where you live or work has become somehow unsupportive or unfriendly? You might sense it is not the people who surround you or live with you or even those with whom you work but simply the space itself. Perhaps you find yourself feeling a little down or unhappy but lack any specific reason or cause.


What can be done? Where does any particular emotional darkness or clouded energy originate in a specific space? There…

Shattering the Myth of "If Only"

In our minds, “If” occupies a lot of space. The unconscious mind chatters, “If only the other person I live with would change, if only I could be richer and afford that…” “If” allures man all the time. “If” makes sure you cling to your expectations and your thoughts that all solutions are somewhere else.

There is a story of the Wise mystic of the East who said, “All that you are seeking and searching, yearning and craving is RIGHT HERE AND NOW.” The student asked, “Then why can’t we…

The only shame is to have none. ~ Blaise Pascal

Communication Skills for More Harmonious Relationships

"One can be very happy without demanding that others agree with them." ~ Goethe  

One of the strongest challenges to a relationship is communication. Assuming you know what your partner is thinking is most unwise. But if you work on your communication skills, you can work together to turn your "I…

Time to FACE the Holidays! Does your face say “Ho Ho Ho,” or “Bah Humbug?"

The holidays are coming. Have you ever noticed how some people are so excited and happy as Christmas approaching, anticipating all of the family get-togethers and socializing? And then there are those who complain about the holidays, dreading all the family get-togethers and socializing.


Well, this year, take a look at the faces of these people and I can almost guarantee you’ll see a pattern. The hostess of the big Christmas dinner will most likely have a round face with full…

The Gift of Presence

Everyone wants to be seen…needs to be seen and acknowledged for their presence on this planet.  How do you see the people in your life?

Do you see them as a purple sweater running by on the way to the front door on their way to work?

Do you see them as tangled hair that you need to brush and put into a ponytail at the beginning of the day?

Maybe you see them as a wallet handing you the money you need to do the grocery shopping for the week?

Do you see their…

Deserve Before You Desire

What does deserving have to do with your desires?


It’s interesting that we are now, with the law of attraction, being more aware of both our thoughts and words. We know that they have a frequency that either attracts or repels situations, things, and people to us. What we have not spoken of is this: If you desire before you deserve you may attract what you want but you will not keep…

One day, the nebula in the constellation of Orion, already the brightest nebula in the night sky, started to shine even more intensely, emitting a piercing blue-green light. Its luminosity was now so brilliant that it cast shadows during the daylight hours too, something that had always been the sole prerogative of the Sun.

This caused great excitement, for never before had such a bright celestial body been observed in the day sky. Everybody rushed outside to see…

Buddha’s Boat

Where would Buddha keep his boat? The brain wants to come up with a clever answer to what sounds like a tricky riddle. Did Buddha have a boat, or does the boat stand for something else? The 19th century mystic Sri Ramakrishna likened spiritual masters to “big steamships which not only cross the ocean themselves but carry many passengers to the other shore.” Using that symbolism, we might say that Buddha was the boat that carries others to awareness.  But the Dhammapada, a collection of the…

Mental Illness or Intuitive Gifts Gone Awry?


As a parent of a child who has been diagnosed with a mental illness or a personality disorder, we often wonder what went wrong.  This is especially true when there is no apparent reason for the diagnosis.  Our child has not suffered any particular emotional trauma, nor has s/he any evidence of a physical cause. 

Over the past ten years of working with children and adults who have been given these diagnoses, I have found that a number of people who receive such…
