So, last nights movie was The Adjustment Bureau with Matt Damon. I had no idea what it was about, but I figured I couldn’t go wrong with Matt Damon right? Turns out it’s about an affair between a politician and a ballerina affected by mysterious forces keeping them apart. A romantic tale of “you and me against the world,” and in this case the world is the hands of fate; Destiny. Two lovers apparently not meant to be together, it doesn’t fit the plan. The “hands of fate” in this case is a team of fedora wearing men; the Adjustment Bureau, whose attempts to keep them in line and make sure they stay on their chosen path proves...

Of Eagles and Mer-people

What do you think of dreams? That they are messages from the unconscious, that they are the result of the mind processing the days events, that they are prophetic or that they have no meaning at all, and are just nonsense? A dream I had two nights in a row this week left me with a feeling of the numinosity of dreams and their meanings, and made me recall another magic dream from years ago. I dreamt that my husband was looking for a house in the city for us to rent. The first one was okay, very ordinary and nothing to rave about. The second house was a huge Victorian terrace, with high ceilings and furnished. The furniture was very large, very expensive and inside the...

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...

Feel the fear…

Feel the fear…

What is your experience of fear? Is it fear that you will fail, or arguably more common, that you will succeed? Is it keeping you small, feeding itself on the negative self-talk of ‘not good enough’, ‘not accepted’, or ‘not loved’? What if, instead of STOP, whenever fear showed up it meant GO FOR IT! There is only one antidote to fear – and that is to do the very thing you fear. Don’t wait for courage to appear to overcome the fear. Courage comes from acknowledging the fear and acting in spite of it. Until you take this step, the fear will be the monster that lurks under the bed, or the stalker lying in wait in the woods,...

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...
