What’s Your Love Language?

It’s the day after Valentine’s and I find myself genuinely curious… How was it for you?  Was it all that you wanted?  Did you receive a special something from that special person?  Did you not receive something, although you secretly wanted that to happen?  Does it...

Discovering the “Sweet Spot”

Have you ever gotten a taste of the "Sweet Spot?"  You know, the place where everything just feels right, centered, balanced? For me, it feels like a quiet energizing hum, centered in my heart that reverberates throughout my entire body.  It's a yummy place.  I feel...

Creating Connection In Your Relationships

Have you ever found yourself lost in your thoughts? By “lost” I mean there’s more attention on what you’re saying, the thoughts and story, rather than on the person with whom you’re sharing the story, or the connection between you and that person. I know for myself, I...

Ready to Deal with Emotions?

I woke up this morning with an incredible amount of energy, and with an awareness of how familiar this energy felt for me. The difference was that today I was not looking to put a story on it, in fact, the mere thought of labeling with a thought/feeling/or story...
