As we go through life, recognizing purposes and playing out our roles, we create an energy of love and history that survive when we leave these human bodies. Photographs, writings, family history and genealogy all give us a voice long after we have transitioned our souls. Truly our lives are a legacy to our friends, family, and our species if we are celebrated by the evolution for our…Continue

Whenever we tune into any sort of social media,there is this feeling of being constantly bombarded with images of men and women that are there to make us feel inadequate. It’s easy enough to place the blame on celebrities, but we are all guilty of posting to the world a snapshot of our lives that only represent a fraction of who we are as a whole person.
All too often, we are left passing harsh judgement on ourselves for not living up to the…Continue

To begin this article, I am going to start with an oldie but a goodie – “When you put your mind to something, anything is possible.” And that begins a truly magnificent conversation about how your state of mind creates your reality.
When I was holidaying in San Francisco recently, I was fortunate to meet a man named Theo Bennett. He actually approached my husband and I, possibly because as we stuck out with our blatantly Aussie accents. Theo is…Continue

If someone hurts us on an emotional level, it is never quite a simple one-way affair. Because what has the ability to hurt us has to come from a place deep within ourselves that has been unresolved. The sad fact is, we all cause micro hurts in each other every single day. These micro hurts are usually not even done with the intention of causing someone else pain, but because we are all damaged and defending ourselves by this incessant onslaught of micro…Continue
Abstract: There are 3 simple steps to setting boundaries that can be a real game-changer in your relationships. 1. Everyone has a different perception of reality. A little compassion goes a long way. 2. Follow-up and follow-thru. It's easy to forget about things or pretend it didn't really hurt, but in the end it eats away at your soul. Don't let others treat you poorly and get away with it. 3. Retreat. It may be necessary to disengage to get your point across. Raise your vibration and begin…Continue
As proud parents, nothing makes us happier then to see our children flourish and become healthy and happy young adults. If you are like most parents, you obsessed over reading all the baby books to ensure that your newborn received all of the right foods, sleep, and other treatments that would help him or her be healthy. But what about adolescence?
While many parents will focus on academics as way to help their teenager succeed in life, this will only go so far. So many of us adults…Continue
When we grieve -- and we do so only because we love -- the dimensions of that grief differ for each death without one being greater or lesser than another; we grieve from different parts of our heart for different reasons. The heart is not a cliche. People experiencing grief can distinguish its impact from momentary sadness. True grief brings with it a physical tension gnaws at us from the heart center. At various times of day when memories are triggered by different sensations,, none of…Continue

The culture of confrontation is so common that one might not even notice it. It’s part of our daily lives: east vs. west, immigrants vs. natives, rich vs. poor, right wing vs. left wing, light vs. dark, science vs. religion, medicine vs. alternative medicine etc. Even many of the most basic questions in our daily lives originate from polarities which are often even artificial. However, to see beyond this dualistic thinking could free one from unnecessary fighting to…Continue
Reinvention calls for letting go of the life that we once had and welcoming ourselves to think in a new perspective, reexamine our lives, ourselves in the light of a new age. It may not be the age that we once had, yet it is the age we have now. And how do we live in the…Continue
After a stressful day at work, there’s hardly a better thing to do than meditate and relax. But why do it inside of your home when you can just as easily meditate and relax out on the fresh air? In fact, if you’re ready to make some changes in your backyard, you could turn it into a real zen space you can use whenever you need some rest. And here’s how to do it.
One of the simplest, most familiar, and important messages we receive is to love our neighbor. Unfortunately, this is a difficult message for many to manifest consistently in their daily lives. A difficulty reflected in the lack of civility often seen between neighbors near and far. The roots of this difficulty begin with the notion that loving our neighbor is a choice. A choice built upon ego illusions of separation, inequality, and unworthiness with which we come to know…Continue
Never did I perceive these two experiences as sexual abuse since there was no penetration, simply just fondling, until I realized there is no such thing as just to a five-year-old little girl. It took years to comprehend how powerful these incidences were and the impact they had on my relationships going forward.
In our world today, the trauma of sexual assault and abuse has finally gained a platform in which both women and men are being heard and listened too, and…Continue

We are often reminded to love ourselves before we can love others. This is not always so easy for those who might not remember how to define themselves beyond outside perceptions, judgments and opinions. In a society distracted by filter enhanced selfies, oversharing of personal information and public shaming we can lose the very heart of who we really are.…Continue

The uninvited guests that growl and howl. They will get us where they want us if we don’t deal with them.
We all want happiness in life. There is no one on this planet who would truthfully tell you that he/she wants to be unhappy.
The quest for happiness in life is a two-sided…Continue
