Acceptance and Agreement are Different I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tripped over this one, getting defensive about something just to keep someone off my back. At those times I felt so vulnerable all I could think of was self protection, defending my castle against all attackers. How amazing it was the first… Continue reading How to Heal Your Life: 11
Situations outside are what they are. Resolution occurs inside you. This is a tough one for most of us. We try to change the outer circumstances instead of looking inside for the solution. One thing I’ve learned is that my world is just that – my world. My perception, my interpretation, my creation. If I… Continue reading How to Heal Your Life: 10
Getting To the Loving Is the Object There are many definitions for “love” in the dictionary from “passion” to “regard.” When we say we love something or someone we experience a wide range of feelings in terms of meaning, depending on our experience.

Issues are blessings, as they are opportunities for healing. Nobody likes to face their emotional issues – nobody. I think it’s because we are taught to make ourselves wrong about our stumbling blocks. We shouldn’t have them in the first place. When you think about this, it makes no sense.

But I miss writing for this blog, so I decided to squeeze blog posts into my schedule when I can. I love the subject for this post and thought I’d… Continue reading How to Heal Your Life
In America, we’re all about action, accomplishment, getting it done – and the faster the better. We are willing to drive ourselves mercilessly to get what we want, measure up, impress the boss, and be admired for our productivity. We accept pressure as a matter of course. Good news! This insanity is only societal… Continue reading In A Hurry?
Most of us think of creators as people like artists, musicians, writers, and actors. A definition of creator I found on Google is “a person or thing that brings something into existence.” In my world, that makes us all creators – creators of our lives. Every decision we make, every thought we have about life,… Continue reading Are You A Creator?
