I love shopping! I don’t care what it is, I’ll offer to help my friends shop. Need a car? Oh, let me go online and research for you! Need to find the perfect dress? Please, let me go with you! Yes, I love to shop! Shopping for a coach? Well, maybe not so much.  But, I look at this this way…. When it comes to choosing a life coach, finding the right one for you is like finding the right running shoes. Sometimes, off and running, you find a pair that fit just right.  But, sometimes you have to try on a couple pair and compare. Still other times, you have to run around the block a couple times. Sometimes people finally cultivate the courage to...

Anger and the Role of Forgiveness

Anger and the Role of Forgiveness

Anger is a human emotion. It is strongly linked to rage, and all of us have experienced it in some form since we were children. We are taught as children that anger and rage are not OK, and so we learn very early on and very skilfully to hide our anger and our rage. Anger is also linked to fear. It is often a fear response that triggers an angry outburst, and is part of the fight or flight response. But fighting and retreating are actions that we take in response to an external threat. These actions are inbuilt into our system, and exist in order  to preserve our life – they are a function of the part of our brain known as the limbic system. When this function of the...

  What is your reaction when an injustice occurs? Do you react, submit or strategize an effective action? *** Unwashed for weeks, the woman is physically strong and lustful. She steps into the shower at Green Hotel in Peshawar with her Afghani warrior. Layers of red dirt stream down their bodies. Mouthfuls of water splash into their kisses. The force and pulsation of unbounded energy melds them into ONE. A knock at the door, the hotel manager enraged throws the Moujahadeen out of the hotel. “Not allowed,” he yells. Stunned the journalist argues but to no avail. She packs her things and leaves with her handsome lover. A day passes and she discovers that her...

Has Anyone Ever Called You a “Nag”?

Posted by on Jun 29, 2011 in Freedom, Gratitude, Learning, Mindset, Passionate Living, Personal Development, Relationships, Self Esteem, Self Love, Success |

Women are notorious for being labeled as “nags” (though I’ll bet there are a few men out there who’ve been called the same). I’m sure I speak for all women when I say how much we hate it! Fortunately, I’ve only been called a nag a couple times. and my response was to blame the man who called me that, thinking if only he would get off his lazy ass and do his share, I wouldn’t have to nag! And you know, there was definitely some truth to that. But as I’ve gotten older and … ahem, wiser, I’ve found that there’s usually some truth in what people point out to us about ourselves as well. I’ve also learned that our internal world creates...

Be Yourself… REALLY Be Yourself

Be Yourself… REALLY Be Yourself

You know, it’s pretty hard to live with passion when you’re just not be being true to yourself. If we feel compelled to act or behave or be what we believe others expect of us or would like from us, then we aren’t being true to ourselves and chances are we aren’t all that happy, either. We are stifling our own energy, creativity, spontaneity, contribution, and love among other qualities that as a whole are special or unique to ourselves. If we have to become someone else just to fit in or get along, then haven’t we sacrificed the very essence of our own identity? Anyone can really fit in if they really want to. But how many people really...

Lessons in Life and Suicide Bombers

Posted by on Jun 28, 2011 in Freedom, Gratitude, Life Purpose, Personal Development, Quotes, Responsibility, Self Esteem, Self Love, Spirituality |

Why does a suicide bomber become a suicide bomber? Because he thinks it’s a noble cause. He’s looking for someone’s love & approval – whether he thinks it will earn him honor in his family’s eyes or in the eyes of God.  And honor feels good.  Why does anyone do what they do? If you keep asking why, the ultimate answer is to bring happiness or peace or an inner satisfaction. They’re all really the same thing under different labels. We all want to feel good, and we do what we do, because we think it will lead to feeling good. We all came into this world the same. We were all once babies looking to survive. We were all once little kids who found the...
