Change is inevitable, yet change efforts often fail to deliver the intended results. In fact, studies have shown that approximately 70% of change initiatives fail to meet their objectives. Among the top three reasons for this failure is resistance to change, with 39% of organizations citing it as the primary reason for unsuccessful change efforts. […]

Sweet Mystery of Life (and how it all works)
“The number of habitable worlds in our galaxy is certainly in the tens of billions, minimum, and we haven’t even talked about the moons. And the number of galaxies we can see, other than our own, is about 100 billion.” – Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer at California’s SETI Institute I believe in intelligent design in the […]
Knowing Beyond Knowing: Intuition
Intuition is a popular subject these days. References to it saturate social media. I see everything from advice on how to improve my intuition, to tests to discover whether or not I am psychic. When I read these articles about intuition, it feels like another way to pressure myself into being more spiritual. These articles seem […]
Playing with the IS-ness
Huh? What’s that? –you ask. As we turn the focus of our attention back to our own quiet center, we are also re-turning our attention to the IS-ness: that which is arising in this moment. Right now, we are all sitting, standing, walking (whatever) in the IS-ness: the moment which is arising now. In the […]
YOU are the Leader!
Have you ever been in a conversation with someone who didn’t understand you? It’s like this: you are trying to explain your view or position on a certain subject and the other person just doesn’t get it. They try to explain their view or position to you and you DO understand it. You can see […]
The Real You: Public and Private
What kind of a gap between public and private self do you experience in your daily life? Do you find yourself thinking one thing and doing another? Do you make choices in favor of what others might think of you? Do you let your story-telling run you? Do you find yourself playing a role in […]
Change Your Password
Do you ever have trouble remembering your password?? Why not use your passwords to give yourself an affirmation. Now that we have to log in for EVERYTHING, I have discovered that I remember mine much more easily when I use a positive affirmation–a feel-good statement–that makes me smile. Here’s how it works: Think of something […]
My Favorite Question
I love it when people ask me: “What can I do to live a spiritual life?” I love it because it is so easy to answer. I’ve heard other teachers, self-help leaders, New Age spiritualists and gurus answer this question, too. Depending on their philosophy, their answers offer daily visioning practices, deep meditation, careful diet […]
You’re Right! What Now?
Do you ever catch yourself in the middle of a tirade against yourself? I mean, really hollering at yourself inside your own head? I catch myself more often than I’d like to admit, but this morning–right in the middle of one of those sessions, I had an idea: what if I’m not wrong?? Double negative […]
Where Are Your Feet?
As we step into this New Year, full of exciting changes and opportunities, it seems worth taking a moment to think about our feet. If you’re like me, you probably don’t spend too much time thinking about your feet. For most of us, our feet just take us where we want to go. If they’re […]
Dream a Little Dream
Have you been thinking about about New Year’s resolutions? Some of us use this time of year to dust off our old ambitions and make another attempt at wishes unfulfilled. Others swear we NEVER make resolutions because they always fail. Modern psychology has added credibility to this school of thought by “proving” that 90+ percent […]
The world has changed—did you notice? Last Friday, a young man walked into an elementary school in Connecticut and killed 20 children and 4 adults. Like you, I was stunned when I heard the news. I still don’t have many words to properly describe my sadness and compassion for the parents and families of those […]
What Are Your Gifts?
I have been using the Enneagram both personally and professionally for about 15 years. Though I am certified in (MBTI) Meyer-Briggs Temperament Indicator, I actually prefer the Enneagram’s 9 Personality Types. The Enneagram offers a more robust spiritual dimension to taking a look at one’s own stories and provides a way to explain the complexities […]
Everything is Personal
Has anyone ever told you: “don’t worry about it–it isn’t personal”? Well, I’m here to suggest to you that it IS personal–in fact, it may be that everything is personal. As we begin to shift the focus of our attention back to our own pure awareness, everything becomes personal–deeply personal. Everything we think, feel, say and […]
I am not the Boss of you!
One of the pitfalls that comes with coaching people happens when they give me the role of being their “judge.” I feel so sad about this because if they knew the truth of how much I care and love and support them, they could never think that I could criticize them in any way. This […]
