Have you noticed negative, unhealthy patterns taking place in your life: The faces and places are different, but it’s the same story being told? It’s EXHAUSTING!   Imagine this Imagine an architect who for many years has had a dream of building a spectacular home. The momentous day arrives when he has drawn the blueprint for the home and builds it. Then, to his horror, he finds that something is seriously wrong with the construction. There was a fault in the original design/blueprint and the home he has built is unlivable. He is crushed and devastated to the point where he rolls up the blueprint, puts it away and moves to another country. (A bit extreme, I know, but I’m making a point). Years...

You need to think differently now. Pre Covid-19, gaining a post secondary education and taking steps A, B, C, D and E would more than likely have helped reach your Career goal. It was a very linear approach for getting to where you wanted to be. Inherent in that approach was the assumption that the socio-economic world/ the context in which you were being trained to work, was reliable, stable. It was a given. That has changed now and a linear approach will not work. Why? Because the context itself, has changed. Specifically, the former context has broken down and is in the PROCESS of evolving into a new one. The socio-economic world we currently find ourselves in, is not fixed. It...

Tragedy breaks us open and throws us into chaos, but that's when Light has a chance to pour in. Now is the time when we must search our hearts and call ourselves out on every form of racism, discrimination, inequality and aggression, whether it be passive or overt. This includes collective assumptions about others, the unspoken corporate policies that are "understood" and comments said in jest ("It was just a joke"). It is up to us to make sure that George Floyd, and the millions of others like him whose names never made the headlines, did not die in vain. It is up to each and everyone of us to make sure that the time we're in now, becomes one of the...

At some point, Covid-19 will pass, and the sun will shine in our lives again but let's make sure we don't just 'survive' this time. Instead, let us be transformed for the better for having had this time to pause, re-evaluate and re-calibrate our lives to the highest possible frequency of Consciousness, Respect and Love. We're not supposed to come out of this the same way we went in! We're supposed to evolve into a Humanity that is deserving of living on this magnificent planet, into societies who love and care for each other and into individuals who use their lives to positively impact the whole. We must to use this time to become a higher vibration/ a better version...

Your mind is incredibly powerful. The simple act of closing your eyes, imagining with all your senses that you are in a very peaceful setting, staying like that for a few minutes and breathing in the peacefulness, has the ability to de-stress you in remarkable ways. Along with lowering your blood pressure and feelings of stress, anxiety and exhaustion, you have the ability to create a state of deep peace and well-being. "Visualization is the act of creating a strong, detailed mental image or thought about a peaceful and attractive setting or environment. It is also a vital part of meditation. Along with focus and determination, the emotion that the imaginary setting evokes becomes dynamic and powerful, ultimately allowing us to relieve...

Covid-19 has thrown our lives into chaos. There is warranted fear of getting the virus, upheavals from routine, work and financial insecurity, global economic instability, shortages of critical supplies etc. Added to all of this is the stress of not knowing how long this will last. So, my question is: Is there an antidote to this Anxiety? And how do you find your power during times of great Uncertainty? Anxiety To be sure, not all kinds Uncertainty is troubling. Spontaneity, stepping into the unknown and trying something new, pleasant surprises, all of these can be beautiful, life enriching experiences.
