Taking Action in Challenging Times

Mar 10, 2022

The war on Ukraine is still front and center in the world consciousness, impacting all of us and our capacity to stay present for the pain and suffering we see unfolding. Do you find yourself tuning out, unsettled, despairing, tired, restless, in denial, helpless or fearful in these chaotic times?

When faced with death I used to go into denial – "you’re going to get better!" What I missed was a chance to be fully present with the other person. I...

The Human Dilemma

Mar 03, 2022

How do we think about good and evil? We don’t usually discuss morality in such stark terms, but when the subject of evil comes up Hitler is usually considered a prime example. Yet nobody can be 100% evil, or 100% good either. Human nature encompasses the whole spectrum. How we manage these impulses is the challenge. What are the drivers of one kind of behavior over another?

The soul is eternal; it comes in at conception and lives as part of the physical body throughout a lifetime....

War and Peace

Feb 24, 2022

So what to do, and how to think about being on the brink of war? When a bully threatens you with violence? This is something to ponder as an individual, a society, and a country.

My view is that everything boils down to a choice between love or fear (and its accompanying anger, hate, greed, etc.). It can be useful to simplify to that degree, but often the situation is a LOT more complicated.

I am reflecting on what I wrote for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, about how he and other great...

Energy Signatures of Presidents

Feb 17, 2022

Once you can recognize Energy Signatures you will not only understand people better, you will see commonalities within professions. And that includes Presidents!

Here’s a brief description of how to identify energy types based on physical appearance, and the gifts of each type (everybody has 3 types in their Energy Signature.)

Let’s get started!

ROYAL
Physical attributes- symmetrical and fit, well defined facial features
PROS - organized, productive and detail oriented

Chakra Love

Feb 10, 2022

Chakras are engines that fuel our energy physiology, much like food fuels our physical body – little funnels drawing energy in from our environment. Rooted into our midline dynamic, which has many layers (think of the vertebrae, spinal cord, chakra channel, and Hara line) this energy is dispersed throughout our various bodies, both physical and energetic.

All ancient cultures have maps of the human energy field; the Chinese have meridians used in acupuncture, and the chakra model comes...

Bring on the Tiger Energy!

Gong Hei Fat Choy = Wishing you prosperity and good fortune in the new year! For one billion people around the world, February 1st was officially the first day of the Lunar New Year.

I always take the opportunity from Jan 1st until the Chinese New Year in February to gather myself and meet the year with new energy - ready for new opportunities and to be open to new possibilities. The Chinese New Year is special because...

Interbeing

The news of Thich Nhat Hanh (also known as Thay) has rocked the world - in a good way. We are all part of one big energy field together, for better or for worse! The first time I noticed the world consciously coming together in this way was when Princess Diana died, followed by Mother Theresa. They both represented love. The internet has underlined our connectedness in profound and mundane ways. We are ONE WORLD.

There is a massive outpouring of...

The Middle Way

Jan 20, 2022

People talk about how divided we are right now, with tightly held views on any number of controversial issues. The truth is, we live in a world of duality - hot/cold, high/low, black/white, good/bad - with a whole lot of gray in between the extremes. The ultimate duality is love/fear - (hate and anger being an outgrowth of fear.)

 

Duality arises out of oneness. It’s the ultimate consciousness that can be thought of as love because there is no discrimination, no preference, no...

Déjà Vu or 2022?

Jan 13, 2022
 
It may be a new year, but it seems like a replay in so many ways. Plans are made only to evaporate on the waves; yet we still need to make them. It can be frustrating, especially with no end in sight.
 
Companies want people to come back into the office; everyone would like children to get back to school; some might long to visit a far-off location or friend. Or maybe we just need something that is not readily available at the moment.
 
The only thing meaningful thing to do...

Review and Release

Jan 03, 2022
Are you done with all those “best of” lists? Trying to analyze and put the last year in perspective? Pondering what you could have done differently?
 
We’ve been catapulted into 2022, ready or not. It’s hard to put the year behind us when a new variant makes it feel more like "Groundhog Day." I think what’s helpful is a look back at the last two years to contrast how much really has changed, and for the better.
 
In early 2020 the threat was just being...
