Safety Not Guaranteed

Safety Not Guaranteed

How many times have you stopped yourself from acting on something (or someone) because you couldn’t see a clear outcome?

Or because you’d been hurt before in a similar situation and weren’t willing to put yourself in that place of vulnerability again?

When Things Are Just Too Good...

When Things Are Just Too Good

Some fifteen years ago, when I was deep in the study of Native American spirituality, I traveled to the Black Hills of South Dakota to attend a powwow. As I was just about to fall asleep the night before the event – you know that time, when your body is starting to jerk, but you’re still conscious – I saw a vision of a very old Native American woman – “sage”, “wise” and “ancient” were all terms that came to my half-conscious mind. She had to have been over 100. Her withered deeply lined face hovered over me and her black eyes twinkled with light as my whole body tingled and I felt myself start to lift out of my physical form to travel with her to only God knows where. It was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. It was pure magic and it was what I had been waiting on for seven years, minus the peyote.

Where's Your Muse When Your Baby's Spitting Up At 3 A.M.?

Where's Your Muse When Your Baby's Spitting Up at 3 A.M.?

So many of my clients who are parenting young children and growing businesses at the same time, struggle to meet their family's needs, nourish their businesses, and keep the spark of their creative spirits alive.

They aren't trying to have it all -- they are intimately acquainted with the power of limits. But, they live with messages about who they should be and how they should live that paint unreachable goals. Loving mom. Visionary CEO. Healthy. Successful. Creative. Baker of delectable (organic!) cookies, cheerleader, fount of wisdom, physician of the heart, tender of the family hearth.

Be True To Yourself, No Matter What the Circumstance

Be true to yourself

A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to attend my good friend’s bachelor party. For many guys this would bring great excitement and anticipation but for me, especially the few weeks leading up to the weekend getaway, I felt more nervous and uncomfortable than anything else. I started to feel a lot of tension around spending so much time in an environment that no longer resonated with me. I was worried about losing myself and feeling pressured to partake in things that I no longer wished to partake in.

When You're Not Ready...Wait

Not ready

You know you need to cut out sugar.

A little voice tells you it’s time to get out of your marriage.

You know you should leave your job.

Do You Have Healthy Boundaries?


How healthy are your boundaries?  Maybe you think about this directly and often, maybe not. Boundaries weren’t something I personally spent much time thinking about for many years. I’ve often related to the concept of boundaries in a negative way.  Of course I’ve known they’re important, especially in the context of parenting, relationships, and work, but the idea of having clear and specific boundaries had sometimes seemed limiting or restrictive to me.

Forgiveness Is A Journey


Recently I found myself emersed in an inner story I was telling about one of my relationships.  Almost daily I was thinking about this person and judging my experience with him.  I'd painted a grim picture of myself as the unloved, forgotten little girl.  I was both angry and sad.  I knew I needed a huge dose of forgiveness.

Wonder What Their Dream Is


Our dreams and desires define us. Be they broken, scarcely remembered, on the verge of reality, or in full bloom. They pilot our choices. Dreams have the power to shape the entire landscape of our lives. Because they tend to be so precious and potent, many people keep their dreams and aspirations to themselves.

A dream is a very sacred thing to share.
