Christmas is a time, to celebrate with family and express love uniquely. Originating in religion, Christmas is now celebrated by many people who don’t necessarily hold the same beliefs, but do cherish similar values. It’s a time of gratitude and celebrating love, family and the miracle of existence.


Spirituality differs from religion, in that it’s more of an individual journey of questioning and a building of personal beliefs. Where as religions are more established and has a guiding path, and set beliefs already in place.


This time of year especially presents a lovely, colourful invitation for each of us to look within and delve into our own spiritual or religious beliefs and appreciate with open hearts. Begin by identifying the wonders of life that you may associate with your spirituality or faith. For example: the humbling sensation of gazing at a full moon, or sensing that you are contributing to something larger than yourself in your day to day tasks, or noticing the connection you have with others, simply because we walk the same Earth; or how about when things seem to magically fall into place, the right time, right place scenarios.


Ask yourself “What is Spirituality or Faith to me?”

Then take some time to explore your connection with whatever that is. Some ideas that may help to inspire your thoughts to flow freely are to have a walk in nature, allowing for curiosity to grow as you look upon the lights and the snow covered branches. Perhaps sitting with loved ones, appreciating who they are, and what they mean to you. You may wish to share with others, or attend a service that fills you with love and gratitude, there are many ways to inspire, and connect with your spirituality or faith.


Take the time to ponder the big questions, and bask in your own connection and participation in the splendor of this life and world that we share.

PASSION is the unfolding of joy. It opens one up to possibilities, is creative and giving.

COMPULSION is the opposite, it is fear based, and closes possibilities and perceptions.

Let go of your fears and replace them with gratitude….

Try this test to see if your everyday activities are passion driven or compulsion drive:

Make a list of your daily activities, including your leisure activities.

Ask yourself the following for each answer:

does it open possibility or close it off?
– am I avoiding or welcoming my emotions?
– is this an unfolding of joy or fear?

– is it a passion or diversion?

………….What do your answers signify?

Is it time to take a closer look at yourself?

Lust For Life

August 6, 2010

Live in harmony with your passions, and get in touch with what you need to feel more fulfilled than you ever though possible.

Have you fallen into a routine of the same old patterns? Feel like you are on a treadmill repeating the same things day after day? Are you looking to feel more excited about life again, and bring back the joys and wonderment of your younger days? Begin by adding in more of the things you love to do into your daily routine.

Start bit by bit designing your life around the things that you really enjoy that you’re not currently doing. Ask yourself; “What do my passions lead me to do?” and “How can I adjust my present situation to include more of my passions?” Once you identify what you may be missing from your life to feel satisfied, you naturally know where to begin making change. It appears really simplistic, but the basic fact is, that many of us over look this one little aspect…our own enjoyment in life. We fall into routine, and sometimes put our our own desires and dreams on the back burner, while we tend to work and other obligations, and after doing that for months/years at a time, one tends to feel a little lost or unfulfilled. Break out of the same old routine and add some fun back into your life. Try this next exercise…

Bring back your “joie de vivre” by creating a list of ways you can treat yourself well. On the list include, the people you enjoy spending time with, and who treat you well, places where you feel happy, peaceful, excited and/or satisfied, and goals that you wish to achieve. Post this list by your calendar or on the fridge where you’ll see it often and remind you. Making a list will help you to be true to yourself, so that you’ll know what you love to do, and can do more of it, and let go of the other stuff that is unfulfilling.

After finding great ways to can treat yourself well and incorporating them into your daily life, identify the things that are upsetting to you, such as illnesses, fears, shame, guilt, hurt, negative people, stress…etc., and create a second list. Beside each of the upsets, figure out what would make you feel better, safer, calmer, happier, healthier and more peaceful. Then, next time one of these upsets occur, mentally remind yourself that you have the resources internally and externally to make you feel more at ease, and put to work your positive responses. Once you know how to conquer upsets, you can actively begin seeking out the people and places that support you, knowing that it will help you to feel better.

As you take more care of yourself, and begin doing what you truly enjoy, and what matters to you most, you’ll find yourself with a natural energy that will get you excited about life, and make everyday living easier and much more fun filled.

Your Own Personal Life Coach:

This week choose two activities to do for yourself, that will help you feel fulfilled.

Mark what it is, and when you will do it on your calendar.

Try it out and see how you feel.

Creativity as a Healer

March 23, 2010

Expressing your creativity can boost your well-being and improve your health.

Creativity is an ability that we all posses. Some people are more in touch with their creative side, and others perhaps not so much. Though some may not feel they are overly creative, that resource is still there, and perhaps it is a matter of acknowledging what that is. Being creative does not only mean that one paints, carves, or creates music. Creativity can be expressed in a multitude of ways; it may be through writing, dance, gardening, building, sport or cultivation of ideas and strategies, and an abundance of other expressions. Creativity is not limited, it can be expressed in whatever way you wish.

Creative expression is healing. It’s a way for many to release emotions that may be pent up or unacknowledged. It can provide a safe outlet for our anger, sadness or hurt (any emotions that may feel hard to express openly). Or in contrast, a wonderful way to express love and gratitude…and even passions and desires. Creativity is a way to acknowledge our feelings, feel them through, express them and let them go. When one holds onto difficult emotions, it can cause disease. Any dis-ease in the mind manifests itself into disease in the body. I am a believer that we create our own disease, and illness, through the dis-ease and baggage that we carry, and refuse to release. Thus by expressing ourselves either verbally or creatively, we allow these feelings and thoughts to run their natural course, and to move through us, rather than festering them within.

As you move through your creative expression(s), allow yourself to experience them fully. Be in the emotions as they arise, and let the sensations flow through you, and from you into your work(s). For, it is within those moments, that you are truly healing, accepting and allowing life to flow as it may, without trying to control or manipulate any aspect of it. By allowing the flow of these feelings, all blocking, resistance, hiding or clinging ceases, and what remains in it’s absence is freedom: Freedom to be exactly as you are, feel whatever way you feel, and express in whatever way you uniquely express, and as the allowing continues, the healing element occurs, and the dis-ease dissipates naturally, returning your mind (and body) to it’s natural, healthy state.

Creative expressions do not need to be works of perfection, or as our mind delegates. We don’t have to get it right at all, just get it going. Allow your intuition to guide you, and listen to your gut feelings and your heart. Where possible release yourself from the confines of your intellect, and allow your body to become a vessel for your creativity to flow through. Aim not to judge or criticize your works, for it is a masterpiece in of itself. As with art, and in life, it is the journey that is of importance, not so much the end result. Thus, when your work is completed, marvel at the imperfections, and appreciate them as they are. With many extraordinary pieces of art, it can often be the imperfections that touch our heart, the most. For example, in the song Fake Plastic Trees, by Radiohead, it is the quivering and cracks within his voice, that are powerful and touch one’s soul, not the fact that each note may be perfectly in place. It is the pure expression of emotion that connects us, and when it resonates with the audience, it can also commence the healing within them as well.

You may wish to share your work(s) and expression(s) with others or you may wish to keep them for your own. Through sharing, our creations can serve as a mirror for others, for in the event that it resonates with them, they become aware of what emotions are within, and the opportunity is presented for them to look upon that aspect within themselves, and if they choose, to heal. You may also like to keep your works for yourself, and that is a personal choice, for it was created in essence for you, by you, and again it is not the end result that is necessarily the most important aspect. You will know what you prefer and why.

Creative expression is really about being in touch with yourself, your emotions, illusions, truth, or any aspect pertaining to where you are right now at this very moment in your life, and any time, we connect to that, and acknowledge ourselves, we heal.

Weirdness is wonderful

February 18, 2010

“Weirdness is Wonderful”
today I heard a great little story, that I would like to share. It is about a boy who came across as a little odd. The boy preferred to sort rocks and stones when playing outside rather than play with the other children. Some of the children would call him weird, and when he would come home and tell his mother, she would kindly say to him that “weirdness is wonderful”. She did not ever try to deny his weirdness, or act as if it were unacceptable. She did not tell him that he was “normal” or that “things would be okay, and he fit in”, she embraced his differences and uniquenesses and encouraged him to continue being himself, even if the other children were different from him, and called him weird. She would say, that “being weird is GREAT” and so the boy grew into a man who accepted who he was and the quirks that he may have.

…You see so many of us (probably all of us) at some point feel weird, we feel different, or strange and unlike others. In this soceity we often try to “fit in” and “be like others”, or what is “acceptable”, though by doing so we very much deny our own essence, our own unique gifts. We are not meant to be like others, we are meant to be us, exactly as we are.
It is our uniqueness that makes us..us, and can be celebrated.

A thought to ponder:
What would it be like to celebrate your quirks and differences and be them freely and openly, in every area of your life?

…..You are extraordinary

(original story by Adyashanti)

Often times it is ourselves that keep a negative or hurtful experience alive and continuing, even long after the event itself is over. For many of us it’s common to hang onto past pains and wrong doings and remain stuck in those feelings. What often we do not realize, is that we ourselves are the only ones responsible for creating that hurt, in the present moment. That also means that we have a choice to stop creating that pain, and choose to let it go and free ourselves.

balloon meditation - 11:11 Life styling

set yourself free 11:11 life styling

Letting go of fear, guilt and pain.

Using creative visualization, envision placing all of your fears, guilt and pain regarding a certain situation into a garbage can.

Attach big strong helium-filled balloons to the can.

On the balloons, envision writing; “I am free”, & “I let go”.

Watch as the balloons lift the garbage can up off the ground, and carry it off and away, and disappears into the sky, taking with it your fear, guilt and pain, and leaving you light and free.

Notice how much lighter you feel.

Just Be….
