Sleep, Creep, Leap: Using “The Work” To Rip The Weeds From Our Lives


My client, Becky, walked into my office last week glowing!  She was clearly NOT the same person I had seen two weeks ago. And the first thing said was:

“All that stuff my ex-husband told me wasn’t true!”

Mmmmmhmmmm….do tell…

Powerful Women - Does Everyone Get a Trophy?

                                             Powerful Women - Does Everyone Get a Trophy?

Women are renegotiating their relationship with power. The signs are everywhere, from the headlines about Sandberg, Slaughter and Mayer to the celebration of a U.S. Senate sporting 20% women. Warren Buffet says women are a key to economic growth (a trend that’s been supported by research and which we call The Woman Effect). The happy result is that it’s becoming popular to talk about powerful women and this is a stimulating plethora of powerful women posts and lists in the media. WhooHoo!

Mr. Flu & Me: A Love Story

A Love Story

For the past week or so, I’ve been visited by a ‘flu virus that finally brought me to my knees, or at least to my bed, on Sunday afternoon. I’ve felt it lurking about for quite some time -- maybe three weeks now.

It started when I woke up one morning and my throat felt like it had had sea salt rubbed into it by a particularly spiny and enthusiastic mollusk. Next, my nose was flooded with a tide that swooshed its way uphill towards my sinuses. This was followed by several mornings when I struggled to climb out of the waves of sleep, only to feel as though I’d turned amphibian and was now living permanently underwater, all sounds muffled by the encroaching tide.

My Heart Opened In South East Asia

“Where’s the Burmese Water Festival?” I asked the police officer, clad in a navy blue uniform with florescent green accents. 

“Just past W. Ferry.  Just walk up there, you’ll see it,” he replied.

“Awesome,” I thought.  With 10 minutes to spare, before I had a call from a potential graphic designer and had to run home to get ready for work, I briskly walked back to the car and headed over to W. Ferry.

Traveling to South East Asia five years ago, on a whirlwind trip around the world for a year, changed my life.  I didn’t even want to go there, but my former husband did, so we booked our tickets and I kept an open mind.  What happened there both surprised and touched me in ways I could not have expected.

What Is Freedom To You?


Every summer, in the days leading up to and immediately following the Fourth of July, it is striking how so many of us become consumed with thoughts and hopes for freedom, both internal and external, as if Independence Day on cue each year opens us up to the possibility of living less inhibited, more free lives.

What I Wish Someone Told Me When I Was Young

Next Generation

My good friend’s son recently celebrated his 1st birthday and instead of getting him a gift he requested that I write him a letter with any advice I would want him to have later on in his life. I was so inspired by the message that came through so I decided to share it with you. 

If you are a parent, teacher or anyone with youth in your lives, please read and share this. I truly believe that if these 3 simple tips are shared with our youth at a young age, then we would see a dramatic positive change in the world 15 – 20 years from now!

Do You Feel Heard?


Do you ever just feel like no one hears you? As if you’re floating under the Pacific screaming “SHARK!” and the rest of the world is sunning themselves on the beach and watching their kids splash in the waves with sand on their arses?

Healing The Core


For years, I have used Louise Hay's book, You Can Heal Your Life, as a reference tool.  Whenever I'm in pain or feeling sick, I check the chart in the book.  I've learned that knee pain stems from fear and inflexibility, thinning hair is a result of holding onto tension and trying to control everything, and hip pain results from the fear of moving forward.  The emotional causes almost always fit perfectly for the ailments I'm trying to learn about.  It is very easy for me to accept that our thoughts and beliefs create our bodily conditions.  I see it in myself and I see it in others.
