Are You Avoiding A Difficult Conversation?

Are You Avoiding A Difficult Conversation?

A number of years ago a mentor of mine said something really important to me.  “Mike,” he said, “do you know what stands between you and the kind of relationships you really want to have?”

“What’s that?” I asked.

Of Dragons And Queens: Sovereignty

Of Dragons and Queens: Sovereignty

I’ve been thinking a lot about sovereignty lately. Of the ways in which my drive to be free, to have authority over my own life, has shaped my choices over the past sixty-four years.

And of the ways in which this longing for sovereignty, for freedom, collides with the seductive whispers of sedition. Those internalized voices that say: If you don’t bow your head in submission, just a little, you’ll lose your livelihood; friends; lovers; children; colleagues; security . . . whatever my reptilian brain believes I need to survive.

5 Ways To Use Your Self-Healing Super Power

Super power

by Amy B. Scher

Do you know that you were born with a super awesome super power? While doctors and other types of practitioners may play a huge role in our health, self-healing has some benefits that are unparalleled.

Self-healing sends signals to our body that we are not helpless and are safe in our own hands. This alone can act as a powerful healing modality. Our bodies are literally built to heal themselves and when we connect with that primal ability, all kinds of awesome things can happen. My life (and health!) completely changed when I started depending more on me, and yours can to.

Be Patient With Love

patience with love

The uni-verse has certainly thrown me a lot of curve balls the past couple of years when it comes to love and romantic relationships and I certainly have learned so much about love and myself from all of them. I believe that life always brings us exactly what we need when we need it, and I also believe that all of my past relationships have truly prepared me to finally step into a place where I can feel a deep, profound love for another person and remain rooted in my connection with myself and the divine at the same time.

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!

3 Simple Steps To Stop Making It So Freaking Hard

Freaking hard

This year Mike and I have had a goal to be one of the top 25 growers in the network marketing company we partner with.

Last year we had the same goal and we missed it by one spot. We were number 26. It simultaneously felt great to be that close (you know what they say: if you shoot for the moon, at least you’ll land amongst the stars) and crappy to miss the chance to be whisked away on an all-expenses-paid trip to the Dominican Republic.

New Year, New You, New Earth

It's the New Year as I write this.  The topic on my mind is LIFE.  Yesterday in church with the teens I teach we discussed LIFE as a power.  I said to them that LIFE is what we experience in this moment, right now.  Life is not in the past.  The past is gone.  If you're hanging out in the past, you are in a ghost town.  Life is not in the future.  The future is not guaranteed, it doesn't exist until it becomes the present.  All of our power is in this moment right here.  So what can you do with this moment?

How To Handle Your Feelings About The Sandy Hook Shooting

How does one handle the news that 26 people were shot in an elementary school, 20 of whom were small children? Managing our feelings in situations like this can be confusing and overwhelming. How do we find any power when we’re powerless? How do we go on with our day-to-day lives when such a tragedy is unfolding so close to home? How do we act normally without fear of going to the movies or the mall or dropping off our kids at school?
