Creating Your To-Be List

“Doing nothing is happiness for children and misery for old men.” ~ Victor Hugo. We make To-Do lists, and yet has anyone ever created a To-Be list? We are human beings, not human doings, so why do we forget that being is as important as doing? We add grocery shopping to our To-Do list, as well as creating a list of people to call. We add exercise and administration, cleaning and proposals. But what about You amongst all of that? Where are you, the Being behind the Doing? How are you feeling, how are you being, while you do? Children are great at being! They are emotive, expressive and present. Somewhere along the line, though, we were told that being was not enough. It was wrong […]

Stepping Forward

“Argue for your limitations, and sure enough they’re yours.” ~ Richard Bach. It’s normal and quite easy to delay stepping into our goals and dreams. After all, it’s quite comfy over here. It’s familiar territory and I don’t have to think much. And I absolutely will take on this new goal/dream of mine once I have… more education more money more information more time cleared the slate Is it the truth? Do you really need to wait any longer? “When you stand in your truth, the universe moves to support you.” ~ Lynda Austin A friend of mine followed her dream and became a life coach despite having no money. She paid the registration fee entirely on credit. Not long after registering, she received a letter […]

Simplicity is Best

“Doing nothing is happiness for children and misery for old men.” ~ Victor Hugo. Children’s needs are quite simple. Adults make them complex. As a society we are addicted to doing. There is a tremendous amount of guilt if we don’t do. We must be a good parent, friend, lover or co-worker. We must cook, clean, solve, fix, organize, drive, make, tear down etc. It never ends. “Children will not remember you for the material things you provided but for the feeling that you cherished them.” ~ Richard L. Evans In our need to do, we forget that while doing may provide for the physical needs of children, being supports the emotional needs. Here are some examples of being: Listen and connect with them – truly […]

Dream Boldly, Act Courageously

Dream Big. Anything is Possible. For us to create our dreams, they must be stronger than the fears and doubts that hold us back. What is your dream? Is it to paint? Travel? Have a family? Is it to run a marathon? Get in shape? Learn to play an instrument? Perhaps it is small. Maybe for a while you’ve been wanting to have friends over for a games night. Or maybe you’ve wanted to have a day just to yourself. I heard recently that if we don’t act on our impulse within the first five seconds, the impulse will disappear, and we will have missed an opportunity. Therefore act when the desire arises. Choose boldly right away. Notice what you keep thinking about and take […]

Why Wait? Now’s the Time! ~ 7 Blocks & Tips to Ending Procrastination & Making Empowering Life Choices

“A year from now you may wish you had started today.” ~Karen Lamb It is natural to procrastinate even though we know in our heart that there is no reason to wait. We grant more power to our limiting stories than to the part of us that simply says It’s time. I am guessing every person reading this has a decision they have been hemming and hawing on. Perhaps it is leaving a job or relationship, expressing your feelings or concerns, starting a creative project, moving to a new location, or starting a new career path. The decision may be small or perhaps it is large. And maybe it is a small decision but it feels large. Small or large we face these decisions regularly, […]

Feel What You Want Tomorrow, Today ~ The Missing Key to Goal Setting

Have you ever noticed that you attract more of what you want when you are feeling good? As we start the new year off it is natural to set goals for a fulfilling and balanced year. One thing often overlooked in our goal setting is that it is actually the feeling we are wanting by experiencing or attaining our goal. Perhaps it is the fun that comes with a great holiday, the connection experienced in a romantic relationship, the satisfaction of regular exercise or the peace when being in nature. Yes we want the tangible experience, yet more deeply it satisfies our need to feel alive! When setting goals, try this two-part process: 1. Outer Desire: Clarify the tangible goals you want to accomplish (new […]

Appreciating & Intending ~ Applying the Spirit of Yes And

As we move into 2011, some of us begin thinking about or acting upon new intentions. One of the intentions I have this year is to practice appreciating what I have in my life as a foundation for setting intentions and manifesting my desires. The Spirit of Yes And teaches us to acknowledge, appreciate and accept what is here in this moment (YES), and then to build upon it in creative ways (AND). Actualizing our intentions is more possible when we first appreciate what we have in our life now. By spending time daily acknowledging the good in your life, you are creating a strong foundation of abundance into which you can plant your seeds of intention. There is a saying that what you focus […]

Allow for a Day

What if for just one day you have complete faith in the unfolding of your life? What if for just one day you allow life to be as it is, and practice the Spirit of Yes And by accepting what is? Instead of questioning, judging or condemning why something is the way it is, you allow it to be as it is Instead of trying to change someone, you allow them to be as they are Instead of proving your point, you state the basic facts and allow the rest to be Instead of directing the flow of conversation, you allow the flow to present itself to you Instead of being angry and flustered when stuck in traffic, you trust the traffic is working for […]

Creating Your Play Day

“Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature.” ~ Tom Robbins, novelist. A simple way to stay connected to your play state is to have regular play days. Play days can be experienced on your own or with friends and loved ones. The key is that you are doing what you love, feeling joy and activating your play state. Here are a few ideas for you: Solo Intuitive Play Day: If on your own, spend a day being completely intuitive. Walk or drive without any set destination. Make choices of where to turn, what to observe, what to do based fully on how you feel in the moment. […]
