    The Dream Catcher
    18 Jun 2015 | 9:21 pm
    The year 2009 was a year of great awakening for the entire world. Like a hurricane, the global financial crises swept away jobs and businesses of millions of people. According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), at least 20 million jobs were lost by the end of 2009, and 170,000 small businesses were closed down in the US between 2008 and 2010. The sudden loss of security caused a great deal of trepidation. The people who lost their source of livelihood were desperately looking for ways to make ends meet. Those who were still employed lived in a perpetual state of anxiety and fear…

  • How Taking Care of My Finances Changed My Life

    29 Jun 2015 | 6:00 am
    By Leo Babauta Looking back on my life a decade ago, I just wasn’t taking care of myself. I was overweight, deeply in debt, a smoker, junk-food addict, stressed out, clutter piling up all around me, I didn’t floss … my life was a mess. And the solutions were so simple: little acts of self-care that really add up over time. They’re so easy: go for a walk, do a few pushups, meditate for a few minutes, clear a little bit of clutter, take a minute to floss. But I put these things off, avoided even thinking about them, and my problems piled up. One of the most stressful…
  • Tips for Traveling with Kids

    By Leo Babauta As I write this, I’m in London with Eva and all 6 kids on our European adventure! I’m in the middle of my Grand Travel Experiment, and we’re all excited as hell. A number of people asked me to share how we went about planning this and if I have any tips for traveling with kids … so here you go! This is a post with some of the things I’ve been doing to plan and keep the trip a fun and peaceful one with our large family.

  • My Grand Travel Experiment

    23 Jun 2015 | 12:17 pm
    By Leo Babauta I’m launching a 4-week travel experiment! I love traveling and exploring the world, but I have a number of problems when I travel: Eating: I overindulge in delicious vegan food and feel unhealthy after awhile. Exercise: I find it hard to keep a regular exercise routine — I walk a lot, but want to do more strength exercises. Work: I usually do most of my work ahead of time, so I don’t have to worry about it much during my trips … but that means a ton of work before every trip. I’d prefer being able to work while traveling, at a minimal but sufficient…
  • The Parent I Aspire to Be

    19 Jun 2015 | 8:38 am
    By Leo Babauta It’s nearly Father’s Day, and that always causes me to reflect on what kind of father I am. I think I’m pretty decent, though I’m not where I’d like to be. The good things I do: I try to inspire my kids, I do projects with them like programming and chess and website building, I read to the younger ones, I do outdoor things with them, I teach them about responsibility and compassion, I try to set a good example for them. But there’s always more I can do, always. Actually, it’s not that I can do more, it’s that I can be with them in…
  • The Best & Less-than-Best Motivations for Learning

    17 Jun 2015 | 1:57 pm
    By Leo Babauta More than 3,300 people signed up for the 30-Day Learning Challenge (wow!), and some of you might be finding a dip in your motivation for learning. That’s OK. We all go through dips in motivation sometimes. The key is to figure out a better motivator, and adjust your plan. Today I’d like to talk about a few common motivations that don’t work that well, and then share what I’ve found to be the best motivations for learning — ones that keep you going strong even after a month or two. Let’s start with some less-than-best motivations: A big goal.

    Before I get to the fun of recommending some good books for July, here’s a quick bit of self-promotion: I was very happy to be included in Mashable’s 25 Must-Read Books to Dive into This Summer. Better Than Before is in really terrific company, so it was exciting to be part of the list. Most of us have habits that we want to make or break, and Better Than Before explains how to do that. Really! Excerpt here. Audio clip here. Discussion guides here. Now enough about me and my book (!) — on to the fun part. Three terrific books. Because nothing boosts happiness more than a great book,…
  • Agree? “You Increase Your Self-Respect When You Feel You’ve Done Everything You Ought to Have Done.” (Gretchen Rubin)
    27 Jun 2015 | 12:29 pm
    “You increase your self-respect when you feel you’ve done everything you ought to have done, and if there is nothing else to enjoy, there remains that chief of pleasures, the feeling of being pleased with oneself. A man gets an immense amount of satisfaction from the knowledge of having done good work and of having made the best use of his day, and when I am in this state I find that I thoroughly enjoy my rest and even the mildest forms of recreation.” — Journal of Eugene Delacroix A wonderful, wonderful book by the way.

    In my new (bestselling) book, Better Than Before, I identify the twenty-one strategies of habit-formation, and one is the Strategy of Loophole-Spotting. I’m doing a video series in which I discuss the ten categories of loopholes. I love studying loopholes, because they’re so funny. And ingenious! We’re such great advocates for ourselves — in any situation, we can always think of some loophole to invoke. Well, what is a “loophole?” When we try to form and keep habits, we often search for loopholes, for justifications that will excuse us from keeping this particular habit in this…
  • How I Used Lessons from Happiness and Habits to Help Me Buy a Backpack. (Gretchen Rubin)
    25 Jun 2015 | 1:59 pm
    I carry a backpack with me everywhere. I practically never use a purse, just my backpack. Recently, the zipper on my backpack broke, so this afternoon I bought a new one (see photo).  It got me thinking about some lessons that I’ve learned about happiness, habits — and myself. Lesson 1: Why did I find it strangely satisfying that the zipper broke? Because I’m a finisher. Some people love finishing, and some people love opening—both literally and figuratively. Finishers love the feeling of bringing a project to completion, and they’re determined to use the last drop in…

    When we are subjected into the accidental mishap of being a victim of vaginal mesh, we can seek the help of a vaginal mesh attorney. It happens after a woman undergoes pelvic surgery and faces complications out of it. Most of the cases, a patient suffers injuries on his internal organs and undergoes excessive bleeding. When a patient falls prey to this kind of complications they can always sue the medical team that operated the patient. This kind of complications emerges on account of lack expertise from the doctor or the medical team. The complications have become so severe as to completely…

    Learn how to let go of negative thoughts and focus on the positive instead. Live in appreciation of all the amazing miracles that life offers everyday, and of the miracle that you are. Live in the moment just like a child and look at everything with a beginner’s mind. If you are able to practice this until it becomes second nature and if we are able to teach our children to retain this ability that they already have, then you will be amazed at how life is always joyful. Remember that we are human-beings and not human-doings. Therefore focus on who you want to BE as a person and not what you…

  • Unconditional Love Brings Infinite Acceptance

    Through trial and error I’ve learned these two things: It is important to become aware of who you really are and acknowledge your spiritual roots. And, it is also important that you honor your physical body for what it is – a gift made of miracles. As we journey toward greater awareness there are many opportunities to find unconditional love and acceptance. Learning to recognize and accept your opportunities for them becomes your spiritual journey. When you find the unconditional love you seek, you also find your pathway to your authentic self which is your divine inner nature. The…

  • 5 Tips to Increase Your Emotional IQ

    Guest of TSN
    1 Jul 2015 | 12:00 am
    Have you ever felt so angry you lashed out and said words you regret? Felt so hurt, you couldn’t talk past the lump in your throat? So frustrated, you weren’t able to form a coherent sentence? Or tried to communicate something important, and it landed like a dead fish? I’ve been there. In my teens, I was a tempestuous young woman. Hormones had me flipping from rage to despair in a heartbeat. I sprayed emotions around me like a machine gun sprays bullets. I couldn’t even talk to my then-boyfriend about anything important without losing control. I frustrated even myself. So I learned…
  • 4 Easy Tips for Living Light

    29 Jun 2015 | 12:00 am
    Several years ago, my good friend and I shared an apartment. We both just started our first “real jobs” and weren’t making a ton of money. We took turns cooking dinner, and we came up with a plan to use everything in our fridge before we went grocery shopping. We didn’t waste food and saved serious cash at a time when we needed to most. It also forced us to be ridiculously creative. Apples and tofu were the only thing in the fridge? Check out the pantry. We’ve got some walnuts, honey and a lone red onion. Suddenly we went from scrounging to gourmet cooking. We called this using what…
  • Stop Pretending and Start Being You

    Guest of TSN
    26 Jun 2015 | 12:00 am
    I grew up in the 1970s, and I learned a lot from the experience. Tom Wolfe called the ‘60s and ‘70s “The Purple Decades” because they had such gaudy styles. Style seemed to be a big deal then, even more so than in other decades. Everyone of a certain age felt free to try new things and express themselves. Expressing oneself sounds like a good thing, but actually it depends on what you’re trying to express. Is it the real you or just something you borrowed from the people and styles around you? Of course, most purple people thought they were expressing their true selves, but I…

    As a full-time nanny of four, I typically used the family’s van when picking the kids up. One day, however, I unexpectedly found out that I needed to use my own car. This wasn’t a problem for me. I just had to put some stuff in the trunk and say my least favorite phrase: “Please excuse the mess.” As I suspected, the children weren’t thrilled. But at least it gave us something to talk about. “Wow, your car is, like, rotten!” the six-year-old boy immediately exclaimed. “Where do I put my feet?” his older sister asked. I thought surely the next time would be better. They’d be…

    I’ve spent a great deal of my life trying to figure out what I should do next, determining where I stand in relation to those around me, creating a harsh comparison between where I am and where I should be. In these moments of contemplation, I’ve always found a way to diminish the beauty of where I stand today. What is out there always seems a little brighter, a little more impressive than what already surrounds me. And this way of thinking and interacting with the world plants the belief that action is king — action is the only way to change and change is the only way from point A to…

  • The Fine Line Between Friendship and Leadership

    23 Jun 2015 | 4:45 am
    The old school of leadership will tell you that leaders and bosses can’t be friends because it may lead to favoritism. The new school of leadership says there is a way to be friends without compromising relationships or undermining alliances. Leadership is all about relationships—the connections we make, the friendships we create. So how can friendship and leadership coexist? In fact, the two types of relationships have more in common than you’d expect. Here are some of the shared traits: Altruism. Like friendship, true leadership involves selflessness and concern for the well-being of…
  • Communication Mistakes to Avoid in A Difficult Conversation

    16 Jun 2015 | 4:00 am
    Some time or another everyone faces a time when a difficult conversation is necessary. It’s in those moments that your true leadership is tested. You may be dealing with an underperforming employee, disagreeing with a spouse, or negotiating with a client. Difficult conversations come in all forms, but they have one thing in common: They’re not easy. We all enjoy challenging others, helping them find their potential, motivating and inspiring them. But sometimes what we are called to do involves conveying bad news in challenging times—and our role as leaders is to have the courage to do…
  • The Up Side To Swimming With Sharks

    9 Jun 2015 | 4:00 am
    Fresh fish has long been an important part of the Japanese diet, but the challenges of meeting the demand was overtaxing the area’s waters. To solve the problem, fishing companies acquired bigger boats that could go farther out. But—as is often the case—the solution brought with it a different problem. Longer trips to more distant waters meant the fish had to be frozen on the boats. But frozen fish didn’t suit the refined Japanese taste in seafood, and prices for the frozen fish quickly dropped. So it came to the next idea—installing fish tanks in place of the freezers. After a…
  • Make Sure You’re Stepping Forward, Not On

    2 Jun 2015 | 4:23 am
    Working with organizations you meet all kinds of people. There are those who step forward with genuine interest to help and learn—and then there are those whose idea of moving forward is to step over others. You might not recognize these people at first, because they like to talk about being of service and make a show of being obliging. But their actual agenda has nothing to do with helping anyone but with covering up the limitations of their leadership. Here are some signs of those who are busy stepping on while they move forward. They align themselves with others because they feel alone.

    26 May 2015 | 4:19 am
    A long time ago, the trees went out to anoint a king. They first said to the olive tree, “Reign over us.” The olive tree answered, “And stop producing my rich oil? I will not.” Then the trees asked the fig tree. But the fig tree answered them, “And stop producing my delicious fruit? I will not.” Next they asked the vine, “Come and reign over us.” But the vine said, “And stop producing my wine? I will not.” About to give up, the trees made one last attempt and asked the bramble. And the bramble said, “If in good faith you are anointing me king over you, then come and take…

But many of the survivors were able to escape the damaged vehicle and ran off on foot in different directions. Most of the escapees have since been recaptured, but many are still at large.

    Since people who couldn’t attend have been asking me about the recent Conscious Heart Workshop last month, I’ll share some details about how it turned out, both from my perspective and that of the attendees. As a refresher, what was unique about this workshop (our 11th since 2009) is that there was no pre-set theme and no pre-planned content or structure. The idea was to go with the flow of inspiration all the way through. It was also intended to be a co-creative event, meaning that attendees could influence how it turned out if they felt inspired to do so. Let’s start with…
  • The Forge of Life

    Steve Pavlina
    7 Jun 2015 | 2:55 pm
    Sometimes I like thinking of life as a forge that molds us and gives us shape and substance as we live. We come into this world like blocks of marble, and we’re sculpted by experience. We can let the forge do its job on its own. But we also have the option to consciously participate in the process if we feel ready for that. We can collaborate with the forge in order to have a say in what we’re becoming. Recently I attended a workshop by author/speaker Tim Freke. Tim shared an idea that resonated with me. First he noted the conception that when we die, some people imagine that…

This isn’t necessarily the healthiest way to go vegan, but it’s a…

  • Never measure employees on metrics they can’t control

    1 Jul 2015 | 3:24 am
    I once worked with a large insurance company, where the claims handling employees were measured on a number of factors, including average customer wait time on the phone. This is a very typical metric or KPI for call centers and customer service centers but it suffers from one fundamental flaw: That number is outside of the control of the employees. The math is simple: Wait time depends on how many calls come in minus the number of calls employees handle. The latter is something employees can control, the first one is completely outside of their control. Wait times = calls coming in…

  • 3 Staggering Facts About the Human Brain

    18 Jun 2015 | 9:36 am
    The human brain is a wonderful organ that continues to both astound and perplex neuroscientists across the globe. Plenty of research has gone into how the brain works, its specific functions, its storage capacity, memories and so on, but it’s just as interesting to think about what our brains are actually there to do. Our brains tell us that something is right when it’s actually wrong. That’s because the actions we take are influenced by the memories and the experiences we recollect. What’s equally interesting is the fact that, according to the latest research studies, we can’t…
  • Things That’ll Help You Live Longer

    12 Jun 2015 | 8:40 am
    A Few You May Not Have Even Thought Of... The infographic above is from and I think it makes a couple of excellent points. The importance of sleep cannot be emphasized enough! Our bodies need sleep to revive, heal, and rejuvenate – especially when we’re stressed or sick. During “tough” patches, our bodies actually crave more sleep than usual but we often try to fight through it or tough it out. Big mistake! When we don’t get enough sleep (not just rest… but actual sleep), we end up paying the price for it.  Unplug, turn off the lights, and…

    Understanding and Managing Thyroid DiseaseI have had Thyroid Disease for more years than I was Thyroid Disease free. My Grave’s Disease flat out refused to let any medication control it, so they had to destroy it with radiation. Since then, I’ve had to take thyroid medicine every morning. Like allergies, asthma, diabetes, hypertension or a host of other diseases – thyroid disease will sometimes award its owner with good days and will other times make leaving the house seem like a chore. Also like other diseases, a lot… make that A LOT.. of these days can be controlled…

I hope you aren’t average. We’re all after the same thing – peace, happiness, joy, stress-free days, good health, and more reasons to smile than to frown. More reasons to laugh than cry. More opportunities to speak positive words than negative ones. We want happier families and relationships – everyone getting along, laughing, and enjoying life’s…

  • How to succeed in business as an introvert

    Josh Hinds
    16 Jun 2015 | 9:01 pm
    Last century, it was the extrovert we valued – that outgoing, gregarious individual who had strong and aggressive leadership skills, who never met a “stranger,” who could make the hard sale, and whose personality was “all over the workplace.” The 21st century, however, is the century of the introvert – that individual who is more introspective, who contemplates and analyzes, who has a quiet fortitude, who has the focus and the creativity that can spread a brand, and who will take the time to analyze and assess all possible strategies and solutions. These are the qualities that we…

    Now, more than ever, companies need creativity and creative thinking in the day-to-day operations in order to truly excel and rise above the competition. We often think of the great innovators such as Thomas Edison or Steve Jobs as the “creatives”, the kind of people who had such revolutionary ideas that they changed the world. Or we read stories like that of Elizabeth Holmes, founder and CEO of Theranos, who developed a simpler, less painful way to test blood that has turned her into the youngest self-made female billionaire in the world and we think “I could never have an idea like…

    We almost all procrastinate — let’s just get that out in the open. And it’s OK. There’s nothing wrong with that. Our brains need to rest. They simply need balance. The problem occurs when it looks like the procrastination will never end and we never achieve our important, but complex challenges. In simple cases we can observe from a visual sign of procrastination – the cluttering. When we clutter up pieces of paper, newspapers, clothing (everywhere but not in the closet), leave dishes on the table, etc. we often say that we’ll deal with it later. We overestimate our future…

    Josh Hinds

    There are few things in our chaotic lives that are more reliable and dependable than money. Dollars can be counted, budgeted, and allocated. Money acts the same way every time and will do exactly what you tell it to do, but it’s not magic. I’m always amazed when people take this down-to-earth medium of exchange and expect it to be magical. For over 25 years, I have had a college scholarship, and to date, we have helped send over 500 students to my alma mater. Recently, I ran into an aspiring student and her mother at an event where I was speaking, and they told me they were hoping to get…

    Symbols carry energy. Some symbols are considered sacred, extra high-vibe’d. They reflect the fundamental shapes found in nature, in cellular structures, in fractals….and they’ve been used for centuries in spiritual art and architecture. Think of them as icons of energy — talismans of cosmic truth. Metatron’s Cube is governed by the Archangel Metatron, who oversees bringing spiritual knowledge into form. Metatron is cited in Judaism, and some branches of Christianity and Islamic traditions. He is a great Angel to call on to move your ideas into reality — he’s the guy who…

    And by “necessary hard work” I do not mean: slogging on something you don’t really want to be doing in the first place. This is not about sucking it up or faking it. By “necessary hard work” I mean: FIRST you commit to something that lights you up, pulls you forward, truly inspires you — the career, a relationship, a project (and YOU can be that improvement project, by the way.) And then it’s so much easier to embrace the heavy lifting required. When you’re doing the hard work in the context of joy and commitment, you tend to bitch way less about doing what it takes. So!

Betrayal shows precisely where you are weak and where you are mighty — in one fell swoop. Betrayal shows your loyalty. Betrayal reveals the lies you’ve been telling yourself. Being betrayed by another person is often (not always,) a reflection of how you were betraying yourself. It’s a lie looking back at you. This is how it unfolds, starting with the pinnacle scene: You realize you’ve been…

This is mainly because lenders are starting to understand that people continue to have financial difficulties but can’t turn to regular lenders due to their credit status. As such, these types of lenders have become some of the most popular loan types out there. How Car Title Loans Work Companies that offer car title loans in San Jose are a lot more lenient than credit card companies or banks. This is because of the type of loan they offer.

The title event refers to perhaps the most startling event, which was the appearance of a skeleton-like image of a man’s handprint on the bathroom mirror next to the bedroom where Max spent his final months.

    Summer Solstice is a three-day celebration of the apex of the Sun’s journey bringing light to the Earth. Though the heat of Summer is just beginning, this date actually begins the ‘metaphorical’ decline of the Sun as it embarks on its journey to the Underworld, which will culminate on December 21st,( the darkest day of the year). This cycle also represents the stages of life that each person goes through in the physical, the spring of our youth, the summer peak of our adult years, the reaping of wisdom in our golden years of autumn and the return to spirit world in winter.

    “In times of darkness and direness, a good question can become a safety rope between you and your own sense of selfhood: A person who asks a question is not wholly undone by events. She is there to face them, to meet them. If you’re asking a question, you still believe in a future. And in times that are placid and easy, a good question is a preventive against sleepwalking, a way to keep present the awakening question that’s under all other questions: ‘What else, what more?'” The post Jane Hirshfield on Living by Questions appeared first on emily stoddard.

As a former student of Diane’s, much of Melnick’s essay resonates with my experience of Diane, her poetry, and her “enduring badassery.” No one could make me think twice about a “lazy image” like she could. The essay has shown up at a time when I’m noticing that my poetry has gone surfacey, lost touch with its raw parts, started to shy from honesty. (Curiously, this has overlapped…

Therefore, allow me to explain the critical difference between intentions and results. . On a global scale, there is a chronic disconnect between intentions and results, as the goals that companies and individuals set for themselves often bare little resemblance to the results that they actually achieve. The fact is… Intentions have never once put food on your table, or clothes on your back. Intentions have never put…

My favorite quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson provides us with the perfect entre into this message. “What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us!”  If we all accepted Emerson’s observation…

And by well-balanced, I don’t mean that you’re never stressed, or are able to fit everything in, and be all things to all people. What I mean is that you don’t have to be singularly focused on being great. People like Steve Jobs (co-founder of Apple) and James Cameron (director of Titanic and Avatar) are undeniably great.

    Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. – Lao Tzu Sometimes life gets in the way and husbands don’t always find an opportunity to tell their wives how important they are to them. Whether it’s the “problem of the day” or a hectic schedule, it can be challenging for men to find the right moment to tell their spouse how much they are loved and appreciated. If you are a husband who struggles with letting your wife know what she means to you, here are ten simple, but heartfelt ways to express how you truly feel. 1. Say,…

    The Last Road in YeringtonThere is a road I’ve yet to travel.  It is not the longest or the most adventurous road I’ve traveled. It is not the first time I have driven this road, but It is the last road I will ever go down.  It will start at the corner of Main & Bridge Street.    The Wells Fargo Bank will be on the left and the Copeland Lumber Company will be on the right. It might be called something else now, but when I was a kid it stood there like a big orange square Jack-o-Lantern with its black cat logo.  Every time I went by it I would count how many…

    22 Jun 2015 | 9:19 am
    Today I'm featuring a guest post by Henna Inam, a colleague whose outstanding new book, Wired for Authenticity, is a must-read for leaders.This past Sunday I got to spend a few hours as a “dumb blonde." It taught me some great lessons about authentic leadership. As an executive coach, I often work with clients to expand their leadership behaviors. As leaders we often get stuck within a narrow range of leadership behaviors. This can derail us because different situations call for different leadership behaviors. You are naturally decisive and move fast but a business challenge you face…

    15 Apr 2015 | 2:00 pm
    No, I’m not talking about the determination and resolve you need when taking on a challenging project or trying to tough it out through a difficult time. That kind of grit is certainly required for anyone to succeed in life.I’m referring to the acronym that Laurie Sudbrink created in her terrific book, Leading with GRIT. In this context, GRIT® stands for the four elements leading the way to success…Generosity, Respect, Integrity and Truth.Laurie’s consulting work with clients has been influenced by Don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements, which I summarized in an earlier post.

    When I got my first job as a supervisor, I was given no training on how to be an effective leader. I made a lot of mistakes. And I had absolutely no idea how to coach my direct reports on to improve their performance.Unfortunately, what I experienced is not uncommon.Companies often invest huge amounts of money and time training managers on the technical aspects of their job yet don’t make a similar investment teaching them how to lead and coach others.As I read Thomas G.

    The following is a guest piece by Dr. Nancy D. O’Reilly, PsyD.We leaders tend to focus on developing external resources. How can we make the best use of our team’s time, budget, and expertise? Yes, these are important considerations, and leaders who ignore them won’t be leading for long. But too often, leaders focus so much on external factors that they neglect (or completely ignore) their internal resources: their attitudes, perspectives, motivation, and beliefs that make up their true selves.I get why this happens. Too many people view self-work as an unnecessary “soft…

    The following is a guest piece by Dr. Alan Zimmerman.It was the most memorable line in the movie Cool Hand Luke. When the prisoners wouldn’t listen, the prison guard uttered that ominous line: “What we have here is a failure to communicate.”In a similar sense, almost every employee survey complains about a “lack of communication.” Perhaps you work in one of those places.The good news is: there are two communication makeups that can fix that. One that deals with the quantity of your communication. The other addresses the quality of your communication.Makeup #1: DNDT…

    In an article titled Sidetracks on the Safety Express, Matthew Grissinger, RPh, FASCP convincingly makes the case for doing one thing at a time and avoiding multi-tasking if at all possible.Three Excerpts: "...the risk of any medication error increases 12.7% with each interruption, and the risk of a harmful medication error is doubled when nurses are interrupted four times during a single drug administration and tripled when they’re interrupted six times. Thus, distractions and interruptions have major consequences in health care.""Distractions and interruptions include anything that…

The more often you can keep interruptions at bay, stay focused on the task at hand, and allow yourself to do your best work, the more you’ll get done in a day.

    In his 1990 book, Powershift, author Alvin Toffler proclaimed that the top six keys to the future are:* interactivity * mobility * convertibility* connectivity * ubiquity * globalization.When combined, said Toffler, these six principles point to a total transformation, not nearly in the way we send messages to one another, but in the way we think, how we see ourselves in the world, where we stand in our relationships. Put together, they will make it impossible for any institution to manage ideas, imagery, data, information, or knowledge as they once did.Was he right? Looks like it.

She has studied eyewitness accounts of everything from murder to revolution.Actually, your mind is in a constant editing mode, changing the original memory so that it reflects newly acquired facts. "This is why one person's view of a particular incident may be quite different from someone else's, even if it happened just seconds ago," said Loftus.To ensure you remember something…

    Interest in Nootropics has grown exponentially over recent years within the health conscious communities and is still a trend moving upwards as I write this. Nootropics are essentially smart drugs that can be bought over the counter or online at retail prices below $50. The majority of Nootropics are cognitive enhancers, that is they are designed to effectively improve cognitive functions such as memory (short term and/or long term), learning, alertness, focus and attention. Other Nootropics aim at reducing mental stress and fatigue, relax the mind and body and enhance the mood throughout the…

  • The 7 Power Codes of the Heart

    Gilbert Ross
    3 Jun 2015 | 12:30 pm
    In everyday language it is common to use the expression “at the heart of” or “the heart of the matter” indicating how the heart is considered to be of essence or of utmost importance. It’s also interesting to note how the same significance is not attributed to the mind although important in its own right. So what language is reflecting is the implicit agreement among us that the heart comes, or at least ought to come, prior to anything else. Of course what we refer to as the heart, when not using the term literally or medically, is not the physical organ but a…

So when I got hooked on to personal development topics later on in life, I was already primed for certain ideas and insights. It came easier for me to hop on from one book or one topic to another without needing a stretch of time to digest certain ideas. I got…

  • Kenneth Grahame: The Late Bloomer Behind The Wind in the Willows

    Debra Eve | @DebraEve
    28 Mar 2015 | 3:01 pm
    On a brisk autumn day in 1903, George Robinson strode into the Bank of England carrying a sheaf of papers. He demanded to see the president (“governor” in that era’s jargon), who wasn’t there. A clerk found the bank’s secretary, Kenneth Grahame, instead. Robinson offered Grahame the papers. Confused, Grahame accepted them. His hands now free, Robinson drew a gun and fired three shots. Somehow, all missed Grahame. A gang of clerks wrestled Robinson to the ground. The fire brigade blasted him with a high-power fire hose. Then the white coats came and took him away.

    10 Mar 2015 | 7:41 pm
    In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. ~Children’s rhyme If you count historical success by cities and districts, controversy and confused school children, Christopher Columbus has the edge. But if you liken it in square miles, late bloomer Amerigo Vespucci (1454-1512) wins by two continents. Why aren’t the Americas named for Columbus? Because Vespucci took a leap of imagination and recognized the obvious. Venus and Mundus Novus Amerigo Vespucci was born in Florence to a noble family. His Uncle Georgio Antonio, a Dominican friar, gave him an outstanding education in Greek,…

    1 Jul 2015 | 3:55 am
    As an ambassador for Stonyfield Organic, we are sometimes called upon to participate in really fun recipe challenges, and this one is no exception. The folks at Late July Snacks sent us a bag of their multigrain tortilla chips and our job was to create a yogurt recipe for dipping those delicious chips. As they say, it’s a tough job, but someone had to do it. Well, okay, it wasn’t really a tough job after all. If you know me, I need easy recipes to both follow and to create. So I came up with a super easy mango, avocado, yogurt chip dip recipe that is perfect for summer…

  • 20 Ways to Boost Your Workout Performance

    23 Jun 2015 | 7:00 am
    Lately when I’ve been exercising, I’ve been feeling a little sluggish. It may just be the weather change, or the need to change things up a bit, but for whatever reason I’m just not feeling it these last couple of weeks. So I started to look at my own habits, and do a little research. What I came up with is this list of 20 ways to boost workout performance, and now I am sharing them with you. Are you ready? Drink plenty of water. This is a big one for me. I’m learning that my body requires more hydration to sustain energy than I thought it did. Water lubricates your muscles and…

I have a right to purchase homeopathic remedies, and to know what is in my food. I have a right to know how food is made. I have a right to know whether or not the food on my plate has been genetically modified. And so do you. Whether or not you choose to purchase conventional or genetically modified/edited food is completely your choice. Or is it? Let me rephrase that for a moment.

    Photo from [When a friend shared this anonymous story “1000 Marbles” on a message board, everyone enjoyed it.  I thought you would too.] The older I get, the more I enjoy Saturday mornings. Perhaps it’s the quiet solitude that comes with being the first to rise, or maybe it’s the unbounded joy of not having to be at work. Either way, the first few hours of a Saturday morning are most enjoyable. A few weeks ago, I was shuffling toward the basement shack with a steaming cup of coffee in one hand and the morning paper in the other. What began as a…

Air pollution was only one of many concerns about the damage we were doing to our earth. For some people, concern for the environment was sparked long before the first Earth Day celebration.

    Copyright: magiceyes / 123RF Stock Photo   Pursuing happiness has become a cliché not just because it’s overused, but also because we misunderstand it and go about it all wrong. When the authors of the U.S. Declaration of Independence penned that Americans have the right to “the pursuit of happiness” they meant we have the right to occupy our lives with moral and spiritual activities that would lead to the well-being of humanity. Their view of happiness was not limited to accumulating material items and fulfilling personal desires. There was no right to be happy, but…

    I awoke in a horrid sweat. I had been somewhere, some place awful. I took a few clearing breaths to try and cleanse the repulsive, the evil, the disgust from my skin. My eyes opened and immediately I began replaying the nightmare over and over. I leaned over my bed, physically sick from the visions. As I leaned over, I realized my feet were bound at the ankles. I looked down at the bottom of the bed and there was a dark presence standing there, just holding me by my feet. I wasn't scared of it, I knew it couldn't hurt me, but I wanted to get away from it. I didn't want it anywhere near me, I…

    8 Apr 2015 | 4:12 am
    As soon as we made it through those glass doors, everything slowed down. People were moving around the small country church on this second night of revival with outstretched hands in salutation and passing smiles from one to the other. The door had barely shut behind us and I saw a young lady stepping towards the altar. She looked downward and slowly placed both palms down on the smooth piece of wood. The carpet seemed to just reach up and take her by the knees and the small crowd that was there gathered around her as she wept. This day, when the rainbow stretched over our…

    Standing tall, clothed in stark white, the wall embraced both ceiling and floor at exactly the same time. I couldn't help but see the spot, just behind the piano. I told myself it doesn't matter how clean and white something is, the one spot of darkness can smudge, it can distract.I felt the creak of the old hymnal as I opened it carefully. The fragrance of the aging trees from which the paper was made and bound together, circulated the pews. We held the books carefully and began the Sunday service with humble voices. I watched a daddy walk up to the piano with little girls surrounding him,…

I clasped my hands around the warm coffee mug and listened to the rain drop in slow motion. I looked downward and apologized to The Lord.My eyes poured as the fog of disobedience, neglect and self hindrance began to clear. I asked him to let me, one more time.

I needed to turn away from the worldly news and be in a place where The Son has risen.  I wanted to be in a place where voices lift despite the claws of this world pulling and tugging to keep everyone down...or even worse, still. I thought of the place...I remembered the place we drove to as teens. A group of friends and I had pulled over during an adventurous jeep ride in search of a waterfall. "It's right down here somewhere," someone said and we all began to trod down the steep slope. After quite some time, we reached the bottom of…

The recent act of terrorism in Charleston, South Carolina, has been yet another reminder that we have much work to do. We have barriers to break. We have belief systems to purge. We have a fight for justice to push for. There has never been a more important time for the leader in all of us to emerge and step forward. If we don’t, our legacy could be that of complacency.

          It’s been 24 days since my last blog…the longest I’ve ever gone since starting this blog over 4 years ago.   Why is that?   Not because I haven’t been inspired, but because I’m in a fascinating space of maintaining my inner calm in the midst of pretty chaotic world energy. Can you relate?   If the eye of the hurricane is the calmest spot, then it behooves me to be strategic in placing myself there and then maintaining that placement as best I can….or adjusting when the eye moves, which it seems is quite often.     Did you know that there…

Have you ever had the experience where you see a movie for the second time years after the original viewing and you think to yourself, “Have I even ever seen this movie?”   Well this has been my experience with these three movies. So much so I literally felt like I’d never even seen the second one at all! I actually love it when this happens because it shows me how much I am evolving and that nothing is the same. Not even one cell in my body is the same as when I first saw these movies.

I was humbled and learned so very much.   She said that among the animals that do not have a close connection with humanity….i.e. the wilder more independent animals, there isn’t one known case of cancer. She went on to say that they have no attachment to life and they do not fear for their future. They live in the present and they see “death” as simply a transition out of physical.

    After much thought, I’ve ordered the compost toilet for our city homestead. I picked a Nature’s Head composting toilet because it’s: -lightweight -very close to self-contained -simple to install -requires very little electricity -and comes with awesome customer service. The Nature’s Head composting toilet was designed for marine use, but it seems to work great in most off-grid situations. At $925 ($975 with 12 volt power adapter and shipping), it’s our largest purchase so far for our urban homestead. It’s supposed to arrive in 3 days; I’m so excited!

After some thought, I’ve identified three things that enabled me to consider homesteading as an option. If you are thinking about…

    19 Jun 2015 | 1:07 am
    Life has no meaning, no purpose. That's why we tend to create meaningless goals to achieve. Like a body weight, a new level in a game, a degree in university, a successful relationship... They're all fake goals we assign to live, to make it more meaningful. Unfortunately, a person with an above average level of consciousness acknowledges the vanity of all goals and all purposes, giving life a totally different meaning.Vanity.Free eBook
  • On Suicidal Thoughts

    20 Jul 2014 | 3:09 am
    Once you have your first suicidal thought, you've did it, you've won at life. Nothing scares you anymore. Death is just another friend, maybe the only one. You start going through life fearlessly, and thus confidently. You're no longer afraid to take chances, because what's the worst case? You die? You've already been there. It's not that scary. The death of others no longer saddens you. Some may say this is a downside, but I think it's an advantage.Also, suicidal thoughts usually occur when you hit the bottom, or when you think you did. You think that it can't get worse than this, and if you…
  • True Love

    6 Feb 2014 | 1:06 pm
    When you're young, and you fall in love for the first time, you think that this is true love. Then you fall in love a second time, and you realize that the first time wasn't true love, this is. And you'll fall in love again and again. Every time realizing that the previous crushes weren't true love.Until..You fall in love again. But this time, not only it makes you think that all the past crushes weren't true love, but all the future ones too.Nothing tastes sweet anymore, not compared to that love. You keep coming back to it, then regretting it. Eventually your heart becomes numb. You give up…
  • Selfishness Vs Selflessness

    23 Dec 2013 | 3:36 pm
    Everyone is selfish.Even selfless people who do selfless stuff are selfish, they only do it because it makes them feel good, or because they believe it will make them feel good later.That's not a bad thing though, it's just a fact, we were programmed to be selfish. We probably wouldn't have survived if we weren't.The fact that we're all selfish, even selfless people, makes me look differently at selfish people.They're driven by the same forces that make selfless people act selflessly. It's not any different from how straight people prefer to get pleasure from the opposite sex, while gay…
  • Too Much Zen Could Kill You

    28 Oct 2013 | 6:27 am
    During the past couple of years, I've been trying to live life more consciously. I thought a lot about the purpose of life. I became vegan so I'd remove the fog in my head and think more clearly. I studied people, their behavior. Minor stuff didn't matter anymore compared to the stuff I used to think of. I studied religions, believes, philosophies.. I visited new places. I saw how other people live. I felt like I finally understood life. I saw life from a third person view. From God's view. I saw life naked. And it wasn't beautiful.I became too conscious.Naked life was black and white. Dirty.

  • Success Attraction-Waiting To Be Happy?

    1 Feb 2015 | 1:57 pm
    This is a video I made in 2010, and it’s very timely for where I am right now. Happiness is very much a back by popular demand Are you putting off your happiness because you think “Someday when I have X…THEN I will REALLY be Happy”? This is a very common tale. I got caught in this trap. I was pretty miserable, years ago. I was focused on the wrong things. It all starts with a decision…’s the start of my 30 day video challenge!

  • Enthusiasm Flips the Switch!

    13 Nov 2014 | 11:34 pm
    Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm,” Do you think there’s truth to that? Look back over some of the highlights in your career, schooling, relationship, spiritual life, parenting or anything you’ve done that was  truly great, and bet you dollars to donuts that you were enthused when you accomplished it, and people could feel your enthusiasm! A leader that I once worked with, used to have a saying that always stuck in my mind: “Knowledge is Power, but Enthusiasm flips the switch”.  What comes to mind when you…

    Are YOU The Leader People Are Looking For? Have you considered lately how hungry people are to be uplifted, inspired, and LED? The industry is loaded with people out there looking for the “hitter”, or the “big fish” they can land in their business, that can bring over a down line, or at least a SUPERSTAR that will go to work, build their compensation plan, and sponsor a bunch of people!! Sound familiar? This is a very common desire and one that we hear every day. Fall out, or attrition, gets a little disconcerting sometimes, and every day it feels like you have to keep…

    Wanting to take your dog out to dinner? Here are ten restaurants with menu items just for four-legged patrons. #1 – Starbucks On their “secret menu,” Starbucks has a Puppuccino. It’s an espresso-shot-sized paper cup full of whip cream. Some dogs are bothered by dairy, and your dog should probably not have one of these sugary treats every day, but for special occasions it’s fun.   #2 – In ‘N’ Out If you are lucky enough to live near an In ‘N’ Out, you can order your dog a “pup patty,” a plain

    Photo by Perry McKenna U.S. fast-food chains have spent considerable time the past couple of years trying to counter falling sales by targeting millennials. Maybe the industry should be targeting their pets instead. According to a new survey by marketing research firm Relevation Research, one in every six American households orders fast food for a dog during at least some of their drive-thru or take-out visits.

    24 Jun 2015 | 1:00 pm
    I remember very vividly back in 2010 sitting on the floor of my bedroom feeling helpless, irritated and disappointed that I had no money for the umpteenth time.It wasn't like I was incapable of making money and keeping it. I had many periods throughout my life where there was an abundance of money, where I was able to save $250 a week, where I could afford to go out to dinner with friends, take regular holidays, pay my bills and still have cash in the bank.I knew The Secret, I knew the principles of the Law of Attraction, I visualized as hard as humanly possible and yet I was still…
  • Free Printable: The Happiness Schedule

    3 May 2015 | 2:39 am
    Happiness, I believe, belongs to those who define it. Because without stating precisely what it means to you, it becomes an elusive esoteric god-like feature that only the special among us ever get to taste.Because even if you had it sitting right there in your sweaty little lap, you wouldn't see it. Because you'll already be looking for the next "thing" to make you happy.But when you define it as clear as the Mediterranean sea - it's yours for the taking.Happiness is really simple if you let it be. So for now while your complexly beautiful infuriating mind is off calculating how many lattes…
  • Live your dream

    24 Mar 2015 | 12:41 pm
    Most of us go through life pretending that we don’t have any special goals or ambitions or desires when really deep down inside we do really want more. We block ourselves and we use these words almost like we’re in a trance, like we’re sleep-walking through life, that we find ways to cancel out our dreams, that a lot of things that we want to do, a lot of places we would like to go, a lot of things we would like to experience, and we just stop at "but."But will cause you to hide out behind fear, but will cause you to come up with all types of excuses that you can validate your…

  • Morning mania, joy in the afternoon

    Tanya A. Goodman
    29 Jun 2015 | 5:23 pm
    This morning work was manic — data flew at me, questions interrupted and technology challenged me. My foster kitten added to the mania by running underneath my chair, over my feet and overturning a bowl, scattering premium cat chow all over the kitchen. Still, I knew everything would get done. I just couldn’t get it all completed instantly. Sometimes, I fall into the mentality of the microwave society that everything must happen now, instantly. Finally, I could take a break. I walked outside to check the mail. There was a slight, welcome breeze in the air. Checking the mail, I found a…

    Without really knowing it, I was searching — for meaning, for something — but it wasn’t until I dropped a 225-pound weight on my leg during a weightlifting competition that I realized what I’d been searching for. When my leg was crushed by the weight, it wasn’t physical pain or fear that made a lasting impact; it was the sensation that this was a moment of change that I could use. I had a choice: I could choose to retreat and hide away, or I could make the moment an empowering one. We often fail to recognize the impact of our life-changing moments — we’re too busy, we’re…

    When you hear the word “detox,” do you cringe a little bit? Many people associate detox diets with fasting, but the best approach may be to detoxify gradually, with fresh and delicious food. Detoxing your body doesn’t have to be unpleasant. A sound approach to aiding the body’s natural detoxification mechanisms can include a long-term approach to detoxing combined with the use of periodic short juice fasts (three to five days).

    Odds are, you’ve heard about the paleo diet, also known as the “caveman diet.” However, this nickname isn’t exactly accurate; the paleo approach is not about replicating the caveman way of life. We actually do not know exactly what was eaten back then. Rather, going paleo is about looking at evolutionary biology and figuring out what is the most nutrient dense food we can eat to nourish our body, prevent disease by reducing inflammation, and lead a healthy life. This means making choices to not consume highly processed food or food high in anti-nutrients. It also means buying local,…

  • 6 Things All Happy People Do

    Anne Marie Ludovici
    22 Jun 2015 | 6:30 am
    We all want one simple thing: to be happy. If you ask people what they want out of life, most would reply that they truly desire to be happy and healthy. We also express wishes for happiness to friends and loved ones with greetings such as “happy birthday,” “happy anniversary,” “happy new year,” and so on. So the question is: if most of us wish for happiness, then why do so many of us report being unhappy? Short answer: because life happens. Many situations and events occur throughout our life that may be out of our control (i.e. death of a loved one). Many of these events go…

But there are others who continuously dream about doing different things in life such as dancing, singing or helping others.

    The law of attraction is not passive; to get something specific, conscious effort must be put into getting it. Knowing how to take action can help that dream come true instead of waiting years upon years to live it. The law requires one to act. Taking more control of thoughts and behaviors will attract more of the things you desire. The law is very simple. The universe will conspire to deliver what you desire most. If your thoughts are negative, then that is what it will work to deliver. Conversely, positive thoughts will yield positive outcome. Like attracts like; this is one of the major…

    Do you remember the people who criticise you? Or you care about just the criticism and take corrective measures if you think you can improve? It’s a “Who Vs. What” question. Now think about this: if you remember the people who criticise you, your natural inclination will be to win over their hearts and do the things to please them. When you do something to “please” someone, your act gets biased. Your such act will make you stressful. Is such an act worth practicing? You know the answer.

  • A Lion in Search of a Circus

    25 Mar 2015 | 2:47 am
    When Simba, the Lion, didn’t know that a circus was a possible home for him, his life was different. He had so much freedom, many opportunities, and so much choice. He was wired to lead. He was wired to roar. He was wired to kill. Kill like a Lion. Then came circus. And the ringmaster. Initially, Simba didn’t like the circus but eventually he compromised and surrendered himself. If he would do exactly as the ringmaster asked him to do, he would get a piece of meat. If he would refuse to do as the ringmaster asked him to do, he will have to sleep hungry. If he’d do what the…

    30 Jun 2015 | 3:37 pm
    On a hot day like today, I am opting to sit inside my new home and enjoy the air conditioning.  I love that my home feels like a haven that nurtures me. One of the early new thought leaders, Emma Curtis Hopkins, said "There is good for me and I ought to have it."  Sitting inside and enjoying the cool air circulating in each room, I can see that the good I have pictured and the feelings I've held onto about where I live have become a truth because I believed so strongly in that statement.That doesn't mean I only need focus on my good, sitting on my couch and eat bon-bon's while I…

    I was recently described as happy-go-lucky.  Today tho',  I'm feeling a bit out of sorts.  It's almost like dark rain clouds are hanging over my head. After hearing myself called easy-going, I'm challenged by what to do with these feelings.  I keep trying to overcome them by looking on the bright side but it's not working very well. I really want to be that person who can let things slide off their back.  But, if I'm truly honest with myself, I need to plug into what these out-of-sorts emotions are trying to tell me.  After all, I'm a spiritual being having a…

Right down to the end, it was a nail-biter.  First, there was the meeting with the loan officer at the bank to get pre-qualified.  Once that was done, and our offer was accepted, we had to give document after document after document to get the official approval from the lender. Along with that we had meetings with the management company, meetings with the interior designer, and meetings with our landlord.  And, after each meeting, I…

I sat still for a moment with very mixed feelings. On one hand, I felt myself falling in love with her for being so straightforward. On the other hand, I was shocked that she wasn’t afraid of hurting my feelings. My response to her was a laugh, a stutter, and a: “Yeah, i guess I don’t have any talent.” I thought about her statement for a long time. But, rather…

    Sometimes, we incorrectly assume that we must start big or strong or awesome. This is not reality. There are some people that start big and strong and awesome; but those people are the exception not the rule. The rest of us, start from very humble places. Sadly, we look at the humble things we have and we despise them. We do nothing with them because they are small. This is a terrible mistake. This is the equivalent of a farmer refusing to sow his seed because it doesn’t look like a mango tree. Whatever we have, we must use; because it is only when we use the little that we have that we are…

Within the month I would be working with a perfect life coach for the task, coach Kerri Richardson. During our time together we would explore many of my life experiences and she kindly and patiently navigated me to the voice within that was in need of care and guidance toward recovery. I learned how to better separate my wisdom from my pain and also how to acknowledge the presence of a very alive…

These are among all choices we have available to us but at times when we are in our old patterns we don’t even realize that we are in choice.  While we are reacting and responding to our very active and changing realities and all the parts of our life experience that we don’t have conscious control over, we…

It is likely my greatest gift yet at times feels like a great curse. It is the issue that started this blog, the issue that has inspired me to be so passionate with my personal growth; it is also the issue that has guided me deep into depression, fixed me with an overarching desire to escape the planet as soon as humanly possible and left me crying myself to sleep many nights.

    Ladies, the widely rejected hormonal version of you may be your greatest teacher. Several years ago I was diagnosed with something called PMDD. I affectionately call it PMS on crack. The medical term is Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, a common diagnosis for women who have anxiety disorders like PTSD. During “my time of the month” I am typically depressed, teary and can have a limited filter. My experience in this state is amplified beyond what the average woman experiences.

However, I understood why this was so only recently. The shoe was on the other foot.I said something similar to another friend, confessing how I had done something on the assumption that he would back me on it.I felt neither guilt nor apology, and there was no complaint from him…

    While we may prefer that our experience of the world shifts smoothly from one phase to another, in reality we often have to deal with a confusing, overwhelming and uncomfortable state of mind and being, before things start feeling more stable.  Further, as we choose a more authentic way of being, things around us also start changing(often dramatically).  Your work, your residence, your relationships – all of them are affected as whatever is no longer in resonance with your new vibe will fall away and newer people and circumstances more in tune with you will enter your life. All these…
  • Wait No More

    19 May 2015 | 1:13 am
    The roots of what troubles us are often deeply hidden from our conscious understanding.  These may sometimes be ancient, including emotions and beliefs that we have inherited from our ancestors or the collective. I discussed this in more detail at Individual Clearings and Collective Consciousness. Awareness of what is really going on within us and our intent to heal are the two critical components in restoring a sense of well-being.  The beauty of poetry is that it allows us to touch and draw out much of what can be difficult to articulate in words. Pure intellectual analysis or seeking of…

    1 Jul 2015 | 8:46 am
    The koala is an adorable animal native to Australia, but don’t call it a bear; koalas are marsupials, which means females have built-in pouches. Koalas have a number of other fascinating characteristics and much to teach us. Here are five things we can learn from the koala:1. Stake Your ClaimKoalas create their own environment by selecting a few trees which they consider their "home trees." The area the trees cover is referred to as the koala's "range."

  • Why is Your Spirit Guide a Crow?

    29 Jun 2015 | 5:34 pm
    If you're accustomed to working with spiritual helpers, did you ever wonder why they appear to you in the form that they do? You may talk with your crow power animal every day, and get advice from your guardian angel that looks like a tiny elf with wings. Other people may have shared with you that their helpers are historical figures, mythical creatures, or one of the four elements (air, fire, water, earth).

  • The Ever Quotable Mark Twain

    26 Jun 2015 | 10:22 pm
    Often cited as the father of American literature, Mark Twain used his fantastic wit to not only amuse his audience, but to get them thinking. Best known for novels, such as The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin, his literary work is compelling and innovative for its use of dialect. More than that, Mark Twain has been widely quoted because his mixture of humor and common sense made people acutely aware of their faults without inspiring insult. Basically, he was a master at making people laugh at their own short-comings."I have never let schooling interfere with my education." - Mark…
  • Using Mindfulness to Lose Weight

    23 Jun 2015 | 9:24 pm
    Mindfulness allows you to tune in to the signals your body sends out.  By mindfully paying attention to these signals of when you are hungry and when you are satiated, you can naturally decrease the amount that you eat without feeling deprived.Most people eat for many different reasons. Hunger is only one of them. Many people eat when they are bored, when they want to take a break from what they are doing, when they see other people eating, when they smell something good, or when the clock tells them it is meal time.By being mindful of why you are eating, you can begin to align yourself…

They also have some very unique and fascinating qualities. Here are five things we can learn from the seahorse:1. Be Tough but FlexibleWhile not aggressive, the seahorse has few predators due to its spiny, bony and tough exterior. They are also able to change colors to blend with a variety of environments.

This easy explanation was what triggered my eureka moment. It made me understand the basic principle of mindfulness - that I don't have to be a slave to my own mind. Even if I already feel anxious, and the urge is telling me to panic, I don't have to. I can react to myself with…

Encourage family activities…A sense of belonging is developed by doing things together, from social activities like driving to the store, going on an outing, or doing something fun together, to household chores or projects. 3.

  • Selective Perception: Is it reality or flawed opinion

    Scott Hammond
    22 May 2015 | 7:19 pm
    Selective perception is the process by which people perceive what they want to in media messages while ignoring opposing viewpoints. It is a broad term to identify the behavior all people exhibit to tend to “see things” based on their particular frame of reference. It also describes how we categorize and interpret sensory information in a way that favors one category or interpretation over another. In other words, selective perception is a form of bias because we interpret information in a way that is congruent with our existing values and beliefs. This topic started around our kitchen…

    As a professor, entrepreneur, and founder of OneMeanDream, I would be lost without my yearly goal list. However after years of being a “goal evangelist” I have discovered that some personality types would rather rest easy and conform to the status quo. Rather than making an effort to change.

So with this in mind, here we go… 6 principles for: Setting goals based on your personality type   1. Try to pick goals that are in line with the main purpose of your desires. To…

While it is good to take parental advice, follow the discipline and rigors taught by teachers and elders, be attentive to the suggestions of seniors and mentors at the workplace, we lose our individuality and ability to follow our dreams and furrow our own path if we do not allow our own thoughts to take center stage in our life.

Sure, you want everything you want because you believe getting it will make you feel good, and since we can only attract into our experience that which we are a match to now energetically, we have to work on feeling good in the present moment, and not insist on maintaining our misery until what we want gets here. That was a mouthful wasn’t it? So, yeah, you have to allow yourself to start feeling better no matter…

    I have been practicing law of attraction for X amount of time and NOTHING has changed! This whole concept is a bunch of bullshit. Sound familiar? If so, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Discovering how our reality is truly created and that we have this amazing ability to align with what we want simply by harmonizing our thoughts, feelings and beliefs in a way that supports getting it, is literally life-changing. This knowledge completely changes how you move through the world, and consciously working with your energy will impact every corner of your existence for the better. And we…

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. There were moments of pure enlightenment and ones of wanting to rip my own face off rather than meditate for one more second. This was the third time I have done this particular meditation course and it isn’t easy. It’s not the type of thing you go to for relaxation or to rejuvenate yourself. You go there to work. No talking, no writing, no reading, no music, no nothing. Just meditating. Oh, and there was no dinner either….got used to that one pretty much straight away, but there were certainly times when I would have…

However, unlike a traditional astrological zodiac, our Mayan spirit animal represent our spirit guides and the traits they lend to us, rather than a deterministic statement about who we are.

    A deeply divided Supreme Court on Friday delivered a historic victory for gay rights, ruling 5 to 4 that the Constitution requires that gay marriage be allowed no matter where they live. The court’s action rewarded years of legal work by same-sex marriage advocates and marked the culmination of an unprecedented upheaval in public opinion and the nation’s jurisprudence. Marriages began Friday in states that had previously thwarted the efforts of same-sex couples to wed, while some states continued to resist what they said was a judicial order that changed the traditional definition of…

    When my daughter was about four-years-old she often played “restaurant.” She’d hand around homemade menus and then prepare our orders with wooden food and Tupperware containers in her model pink kitchen in the corner of the living room. I always ordered a salad with spaghetti or whatever the special was for the night. And, while she worked to prepare the meals,  she also talked to her pretend kitchen staff about how to make the recipes. She didn’t know anything about ingredients, so each time she had to imagine what went into spaghetti sauce, or how to bake a cookie, and…

But it can also help you manage a budget, come up with a creative compromise, and even help you manage pain and recover faster from surgery. And now more research shows that using your imagination may actually help you more than practice when it comes to successfully completing a task. Vanderbilt researchers found that it was visualization instead of practice that helped people respond faster and more efficiently when seeking a specific target. Study participants were…

    I don't know about you, but I really want to savor the next couple of sunny months. Summer goes by way too quickly! Recently, I got to thinking about how badly I'm slacking on my personal goals. I'm guilty of getting caught up in everyday life, so much that my personal ambitions sort of fell to the wayside. The good news is this awakening inspired me to write a list of all the fun ways I can cultivate a meaningful, productive summer. I like that I can track my actions, scratching things off as I go! Included in this to do list...try a few DIY projects  write for 10 minutes a…

    Rethinking: this blog. Sometimes I think it lacks direction. I want to refocus and get back to the heart of it, which is really about getting to know myself better. Planning: college visits. It's hard to believe that in a short time my son will be graduating! It's meaningful for so many reasons. I was a young 19 y.o. when I had my boy and raised him as a single parent for years (before getting married). Thankfully, I have a great support system and managed to stay strong and resourceful. Watching him grow into a blooming young man makes me smile from the inside out. Wearing: shift dresses,…
  • 10 Body Confidence Tips for Summer

    With the days of summer quickly approaching, I thought it fitting to touch on a hot topic for women all over the world.Body confidence, or in some cases -- lackthereof! Everyone wants to know that they’re looking their best and their bodies are appreciated. However, based on this ever changing society and it's wacky standards of beauty, no matter what size you fall into, there's some level of body shaming going on.You're either too skinny or too fat -- you can't win, right?!Honestly speaking, I feel self conscious about my "mummy tummy" sometimes. I can also testify that (childbearing) hips…

This matchy-matchy top and skirt set is perfect to celebrate the holiday festivities in, with just the right comfort to enjoy a nice relaxing day. The peppy red and white print is…

    Today I want to take the time to talk about building an Empire and yes I said empire! What is the empire you may ask well the empire is a group who are more than just your friends they are the people who are seen as family. I like to call them the crew.

Friends are a very basic level of people in your life, but can you really put your trust in them to have your interest as you hold your own? In life you need people who are more than just considered friends. You need people who can be family, who you can…

    Welcome! Today I want to challenge you to really think about grinding. Grinding is the ability to outwork everyone to accomplish goals or task that are set by yourself or others.

    Making a change begins with yourself but yet we might not know where to start. Imagine planning a vacation from your busy life. The weather is beautiful, the water is cold and it’s about that time to get out of town. But there is simply a huge problem; there is no formal plan to achieve the results for the much-anticipated vacation that you want. Now transitioning over to achieving anything that you want in life establishing core values that will actually be carried out will be highly beneficial for a higher sense of personal development. Now, what does core values have to do with…

  • Perspective – What Relativity Says About How You Can Change Your World

    30 Jun 2015 | 10:36 am
    It’s your grandmother’s birthday in a few days. The last two years you completely forgot about getting her a present and had to pick up cake on the way; but grandma is allergic to cake. Her face gets all red and she swells up like a balloon – it’s not a pretty site. This year you want it to be different. You notice how often she talks about birds, so you decide to make her a beautiful birdhouse. Grandma really likes big birds, so to accommodate them you need to make a square box that is one foot long on all sides. You head off to the hardware store and purchase some…
  • Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts

    25 Jun 2015 | 10:30 am
    Symbiosis is when two often unrelated entities come together to form something greater. In biology this is demonstrated by the bacteria living in our gut that help us digest, hermit crabs using seashells as their home, and the joining of mitochondria into living cells. Symbiosis is one of the most powerful factors in natural development – it is what caused jumps in the evolutionary process leading to changes faster than any type of incremental mutation could offer. It can do this because it doesn’t actually require anything new to be created – it just re-purposes what already exists…
  • What Do You Care What Other People Think?

    If you like comically narrated stories riddled with ground breaking life lessons, this is a book for you.   Richard Feynman, one of the most cherished physicists of the 20th century was more than just a brain – he had an extraordinary drive for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life. When he wasn’t helping invent the atomic bomb or winning the Nobel Prize, Feynman was causing all sorts of mischief – anything from cracking safes for sport during the Manhattan Project to turning a topless bar into his office. His latest book, “What…
  • What it Really Means to Think Outside the Box

    18 Jun 2015 | 4:52 pm
    We’ve all heard the expression “Thinking outside the box” sometime in our lives. It’s something we’re told to strive for; as we hear stories about how people solved problems no one else could because they weren’t limiting their thinking to “The box”. But I doubt you have heard it by its other name, a word we are also familiar with – insanity. Let’s look at two examples so you can see what I mean. Jill is a doctor working in the ER. Every day, she treats all kinds of problems – anything from a broken finger to a serious allergic reaction. She usually goes by the book…
  • The Light we Cannot See – A New Perspective

    15 Jun 2015 | 3:17 pm
    As a child you probably saw the trick where you rub a balloon on your head that makes your hair stand up and the balloon stick to the wall. You probably never thought much about what caused that event, but what you have done is transferred some of the charged particles from your hair to the balloon, making what was once neutrally charged carry a net charge. This net charge creates a field of interaction spanning in all directions. Any charged particles like your hair are either attracted (if they have an opposite charge) or repelled (if they have the same charge). The net effect that we see…
