  • The End of Your Comfort Zone

    What I have come to notice about life is this: "Life begins at the end of my comfort zone."

    Today, have a conscious change of heart with the use of engaging the mind in minding the mind with thoughts that channel the energy of love. One can focus on thoughts that generate non-life serving feelings and actions, or one can—in each moment—take a breath and decide to choose thoughts that control the process of transmutation . . . from shadow and darkness, to positive constructive emotion. Having a change of heart takes willpower.
  • Legacy

    Have you ever stopped to contemplate what legacy you will leave behind when you rejoin the world of spirit? As I find myself segwaying into my elder years, I think about what my life will have said to others while I was here. Spiritual development contributes to the impact one leaves behind. I'm not referring to how much stuff or money one will leave for their loved ones, but what actions and words said to others while here. Most importantly, I think about what our words and actions will inspire in others.
  • Daring Greatly

    To dare greatly may seem like an idea that only some individuals might decide to do. To dare greatly is to live wholeheartedly, expressing what's alive inside with no concern about the critics in this world. When one decides to let go of outcome and approval, life becomes a different experience.
  • Soul’s Journey

    Some time ago I made the decision that I wanted to focus more on what my soul longs for. I realized I had not been paying enough attention to what best supported my purpose in this lifetime. I noticed that I admired people who have achieved an unfakeable inner virtue that is built slowly as one walks life’s journey through spiritual accomplishments. This inner virtue is not measurable with the eye, but with the feeling one has when in the presence of such individuals who shine their inner life in authentic and lasting ways. As I looked into my life I saw a humbling gap between my actual self and my desired self. There was certainly room for experiences that could lead me towards the richest inner life possible. The list of what I thought I wanted to achieve drastically changed once I asked myself this life changing question: what kind of life am I experiencing right now and what kind of life does my soul long for?
  • Becoming an Elder

    I recently spoke at a luncheon attended mainly by the elderly. I decided to speak about our soul’s journey while here on this physical plane. As we segway into our Elder years, the question becomes: What is an Elder? Is there a difference between being older and being an Elder? I think we ourselves are best equipped to answer that for ourselves. We know ourselves best; we know our life’s journey and all that we have harvested from the events of our life.

    Marshall Rosenberg, founder of Nonviolent Communication, exited the stage on February 7, 2015, leaving this physical plane poorer for his loss. It happened the day I was traveling to the Yukon to the small community of Carcross where my native grandmother lived during the last half of her adult life.
  • Oneness

    Life experiences are like fingerprints: no two are exactly alike. Yet there is always a place we can find that gives us a connection to anyone we desire to feel connected to. As I have grown I have had the opportunity to understand more deeply the teaching of oneness. We are all inherantly interconnected whether we wish to believe it or not. We can choose to recognize this underlying connection, or we can ignore it and disconnect through our thoughts, beliefs, words and actions. If I sit moralistically judging someone, I disconnect from them. If I label someone, that label can disconnect me. If I see myself as better in some way—disconnect, if I see them above me they will likely fall in my eyes , and we will disconnect. As individuals we are all in charge of connecting or disconnecting at any given moment of the day. We don't have to become someone's best friend but it is valuable for each one of us to be able to witness another and connect with them in our hearts. This brings the experience of feeling at one with others. As I travel across the vast land of Canada I meet many different looking people and I have come to know our uniqueness, yet sameness. So many who I have met in my travels carry experiences of trauma and pain that have left an imprint on their soul, and they have a story. When they come to realize the barriers they have held in place with that story—barriers that have blocked them from living so much more fully and joyfully—the experience leaves a new imprint on their soul. Someone said to me, "Why would you want to travel into the Arctic? It's so cold there!" What I know is this: it may be cold outside, but the hearts of these northerns are warm and are longing to be free from old barriers that have held them prisoner for most of their lives. When I can find that place of longing within myself, I feel connected with each individual with whom I am honoured to spend time. No matter where we are in our journey, we long for more expansion. All souls are the same in this way. This is the group I recently worked with in the north. It was a heart-warming experience for us all. We spent time together and gained insights into dissolving barriers and opening our hearts, ears, and minds to different ways. We shifted our perspective of the old stories. How? All it takes is choosing to be open to receive, and we allow our story of pain to be transformed.
  • Saying Yes Saying No

    To have success in life there are times when we need to say 'no' and times when it most serves life to say a resounding 'yes'. Both can be a challenge depending on the circumstance. We feel joy when we are successful and making choices that create peace and happiness within. Why is the 'no' or 'yes' important? Because the 'no' is an expression of our power. We manage our power by making choices that have consequences that empower us—so when we look in the mirror, we like/love who we see there. When we say 'yes' to the fear that our mind generates around particular areas of our life, that is empowering. The choice of 'yes' also has the power to open new doors or to close doors that need to be walked through and closed behind us. We do not have the power to make anyone feel anything however we are responsible for how we deliver our words. Our words carry medicine, as our Elders teach us—in other words, our words carry a vibration. Saying 'no' or 'yes' can be a big part of making choices that can create transformational and life-lasting shifts. Know when to say 'yes' and know when to say 'no.' Go with your inner intuition. Your Ego/mind may lie to you, but your heart will not.
