Opening to possibility

Do you ever wish you could do something, but it seems impossible? Or improbable.  It may not fit in with the image you have of yourself, and your relationship to the world. When we were children, we seemed capable of imagining many things. We could play games and slip into different roles, become anything we …

Eclipse

As you know, this week in the U.S. we experienced an amazing solar eclipse. It “overshadowed” everything so to speak! Most everyone’s attention was focused for a short while on this cosmic event. I got to see it, through the properly prescribed glasses, of course, and it was an incredible feeling. It made me feel …

Become more of who you truly are

In our culture, youth is often praised and aging is seen as a deficit. But as we get older, we gain access to a deeper kind of wisdom than we had when we were younger. The great psychologist C.G. Jung said that in the middle of life there occurs a transformation in the psyche—psyche is …

If you write it, it will come

Transformation

Does it ever seem that there are certain things you wish you could change but can’t? Certainly when we’ve been given a diagnosis of ADHD or another disorder, or when we’ve struggled with something for a long time and can’t see any progress, we can fall into despair. There’s something wrong with me, you may …

Making Habits into Goals

A new year has just begun and, if you are like me, you want to set fresh goals, or reach the goals you set last year. When we set a goal, we usually feel enthusiastic. We may put it on the top of our “to do” list and have every intention of seeing it through …

Resilience

We set goals and try to attain them. But sometimes, no matter how hard we try, it seems the universe has its own agenda for us. Maybe we don’t get our first-choice school, or get hired for that job we applied for. Maybe we have faced a lot of rejection, and we feel that because …

What story are you telling yourself? Make it a good one.

It’s spring and life is growing all around. Are you able to till the ground and plant new seeds? Or are memories of the past standing in your way? Do mistakes you think you made come back to haunt you? Does it seem you were never able to live up to your true potential because …
