Learning to accept yourself: Your looks aren’t everything, sweet pea. October 27, 2013

Well, it looks like from now on I have to wear my glasses. I have been wearing contacts for forever, but one of the lenses really began irritating my eye. I tried everything—wetting solutions, allergy pills, and different brands of contacts. When none of those worked, I tried an expensive energy healing process and then […]

Technology and fear and the great divide. October 27, 2013

After author Patti Davis received backlash from a good friend concerning her recent novel about two sisters-in-law who unexpectedly fall in love, she blogged about the great divide that’s present in society around the profound issues that are facing us today—like gay rights, guns, and immigration. How people just can’t seem to talk to each […]

Learn to accept yourself: The antidote to fear. October 27, 2013

Have you ever noticed that whatever you are afraid of, rarely happens? Sure, the dog barked, but will it really bite? Still, we do it all the time—give away our power to an imaginary event, to an illusion. Personally, I try catching my reactionbefore I react. I don’t always succeed, but when I do I know […]

Find your passion. Follow your inner voice. October 27, 2013

Ain’t it the truth: fear can make us think anything—even that it is our intuition! I recently responded to a blog post about this in Spirituality and Health Magazine, and the writer, Eve Hogan reminded us that following our intuition empowers us to take action—and I’ll add, to get in touch with our passion, whereas fear paralyzes […]

Life is not a problem to be solved but a mystery to be lived. October 27, 2013

Yet, who has time to even think about it. We’re all too busy moving from one problem to the next. For example, if we lose our job, do A, B, and C, and we’ll get another one. If we break our leg, just get a cast, and we’ll be on our merry way. If we […]

Using your intuition with Twitter. October 27, 2013

Never thought that I would, but I adore tweeting. Yet, for a while there, Twitter’s rules were not working in my favor. I couldn’t follow anyone else, until more people followed me. Ok. I get it. But then people started following me left and right yet my number of followers was going down. Now what’s up with […]

Exercising activities in the right proportion. October 27, 2013

I was a runner for many years, and really loved the sport. Eventually, I started getting injuries, so I saw a podiatrist, who was a runner himself. I remember sitting in his office once with a metatarsal sprain, and wishing I was in as great a shape as he was. He talked about how much […]

Trust your gut in business: Case Study #2. October 27, 2013

Finding a publisher isn’t easy. My co-author and I searched long and hard, and then shortly after finding one we realized that their vision for the book was not aligned with ours. Yikes. We’d already hired a publicist, and lined up a well-known celebrity to write the the Foreword. Double yikes. It was difficult parting ways […]

Follow your gut when your head is screaming otherwise. October 27, 2013

Recently, I made a decision to do something very scary for me. Since then I’ve felt a dread that has given me headaches, stomachaches, and constipation. The voices in my head have been screaming, “Are you nuts, or just the most irresponsible person alive?” I’m constantly justifying my decision to the part of myself that […]

Women and their mistakes: Not punishable by death. October 27, 2013

Not all women feel this way, but many of us do: we have to be perfect—or else. If I had a daughter and not a son, it would rip my heart apart if she ever felt the way I sometimes do. Yet, I am guilty as charged: somewhere inside I believe that if fail or […]
