One of the biggest complaints I hear from clients is overwhelm. It seems to be the thing that everyone suffers from these days. As a business owner, I suffer from it, too. There are always endless things to do, aren’t there? The holiday season especially amps up feelings of overwhelm. Today we have more
The new leaders of today are not necessarily famous. Most of them are unknown. They don’t seek recognition or status, but they have much to offer in the way of spiritual guidance and wisdom. New leaders are emerging. They are soulful by nature. They do not seek power, but empower others. Many of them are
Recently I left Salt Spring Island to go south for the winter. I was feeling the call to go to San Diego again. Whenever I travel, it’s an act of faith. I never really know where I’ll end up, or what will happen. I trust my inner guidance. It was hard though to leave this
Getting sick changed my life for the better. Death, disease, loss.. are what I consider to be divine interventions. They can bring you down, or lift you higher. No matter what, you’re transformed in the process. Below are more of the life lessons I learned. It is a continuation of previous blog posts, Getting Sick
Stress may seem like it’s outside of us, but it’s really an internal response. What we perceive as stressful will be processed as “stress” in our brain. As a result, our mind freaks out, our body contracts and our perception narrows to survival mode. Most people experience stress. We all know the inner grip of
Do you check FaceBook when you first wake up in the morning? Are you tempted to text while you drive? If so, you’re not alone. We all get unreasonable urges to check our smartphone! Since technology is socially acceptable, it’s easy to overuse it. Most people do not consider tech addiction as seriously as they
This fall I decided to do a cleanse. It’s especially good to do with the change in seasons. Usually I do juice cleanses alongside colonics. This was the first time I did an Ayurvedic cleanse. It consisted mostly of green juice and an Indian dish called kitchari. Here is a photo of the first bowl
When I was sick, it was hard to look in the mirror. I couldn’t recognize myself when my skin broke out and changed color. Even now I feel a little residual pain from that experience. All the spiritual practice and teaching did not prepare me for the experience of losing my health, looks and hair.
I wish I could say having short hair was entirely my choice, but unfortunately it wasn’t. Last year, I came down with a horrible parasite that deeply afflicted my skin, health, hair, vision.. everything. The parasite ravaged my skin. I broke out everywhere, including my face and body. My hair disintegrated through the process. For
Many people, myself included, are experiencing a lot of change and transformation. Recently it’s inspired me to write “The Survival Guide to the Hero’s Journey.” In December of 2012, I published “Moving Toward Source,” a guide about the changes, shifts and healing we’d experience individually and collectively at end of the Mayan calendar (Dec. 21,

I was inspired by a recent interview with Lady Gaga where she performed in Central Park on her black unicorn piano and her song hair. When asked by an audience member, “what would you do if you weren’t famous and doing what you’re doing now?” She responded candidly, “I would be a singer.” The TV
Often times during my morning meditations, I receive messages from spirit. It may come through a vision or sound. Since I was a child, I had prophetic dreams and received glimpses into the future. Now as an adult, I receive specific messages, “go to the library now” or “tell this person they need fish oil!”
When was the last time someone said, “Hey how is your nervous system today?” It’s not something we pay attention to very often, but we should. It has a huge effect on our well-being, our mental state, what we perceive – pretty much everything. Our nervous system is responsible for sending all the messages to/from
Often times when I’m sitting in meditation, I am aware of the energy in my heart. It occurred to me recently that what we consider to be consciousness, a widening in our awareness and mind, may actually be a consciousness that extends from our heart. Could it be that the heart has it’s own intelligence?
It was a beautiful day yesterday so I decided to walk across the Cambie bridge in Vancouver B.C. As I entered Yaletown, I noticed 2 big vans that said, “ANGEL Restoration.” Deeply amused by this, I crossed the street and saw 4 people on the other side of the truck huddled together in a circle.
It’s very new agey to talk about abundance. It got me thinking after I started noticing how many lightworkers (people who bring healing into the world and often talk about abundance), struggle financially. Why is it that a lawyer makes $500/hr and a massage therapist, $50/hr? What kind of values are we talking about here?
When I was 22, I started my career on Wall Street at Goldman Sachs. I was an Equities financial analyst. It seems like a fancy title, one that alot of people coveted during that time, but I was really just an over-glorified secretary. My tasks were fairly menial and I didn’t have to think much.
What are the culprits that keep people stuck? Here are some of the big ones I almost always see in life coaching: 1) The idea of being good enough. “I need to be at a certain level before I can really do what I love. I need the proper training, certification, outer validation first.” 2)
As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”. As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody as I try to force my desires on this person,
I admit, I like glitter, lip gloss & things with wings. But when it comes to coaching, I keep it real. I do what I can to tell the truth with love. And what I’ve found peculiar over years of coaching, is that when it comes to people’s life goals & fears, many people live
In life coaching, it may be that people’s outer goals appear different – it could be a better job, a bigger bank account, or even enlightenment. But the underlying essence is always the same. Ask thousands of people what their goals would give them and their answers would be the same: peace, security and freedom.
I’ve just finished the sixth colonic of my one-month cleanse. Right now I’m eating mostly raw, grains and occasional chocolate. This is the first time I’m trying out Advanced Naturals – the 30 day organ/colonic cleanse and the flax seed mix that brushes out the inner lining of the Intestinal wall. So far so good.
Recently a friend of mine, a successful producer, decided to cut ties from Hollywood and go to Europe to live on an organic farm in the French Alps. He was going to live in a rustic cabin with no electricity or running water with his wife for a while. It was something they always wanted
I walked into the local gym this morning to take a yoga class where there were lots of people waiting. As we streamed into the room, I heard someone say “Oh, this is a GREAT yoga class. I was sore for a week after I took this class!” That was the first red flag. The

“A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.” One of my absolute favorite myths is the Hero’s Journey
