Is it possible to have a Career that is aligned with your Values, Beliefs and Interests? Or, is this asking for too much and should you just be happy that you have a job? Each week I hear clients expressing a deep desire to make changes to their professional path. “I just can’t do it any more! It’s sucking the life out of me. I feel like I’m dying inside.” These are actual statements I hear on a regular basis. They come from intelligent, responsible and resilient people, who don’t walk away from commitments easily. This is so much more than what could be considered typical workplace frustration and that’s what makes what they’re saying so important.   A Shift is taking place  They’re highlighting...

Police do it. Bankers do it. Mechanics do it. Parents do it. And you’ve probably already done it several times today. What is ‘it’? Tapped into, and used, the information your Intuitive Intelligence made available to you. Call it a gut feeling, a hunch, a vibe, a feeling about a person, a sense that something isn’t right, an inner knowing about a situation..…it all speaks to Intuitive Intelligence. To be clear, in this post when I refer to Intuition, I’m not describing 'getting your fortune told'. Here, I’m talking about your Intuitive Intelligence, which you have available to you in the same way that you have Emotional Intelligence, Intellectual Intelligence, Social Intelligence and Physical Intelligence. And, as with each of these, you...

When we think of aggression and bullying, images of being yelled at, demeaned, pushed, hit and worse come to mind. Clearly, at every possible level of examination it is wrong, and that’s why we are a society with zero tolerance of this kind of behaviour. However, there’s a less visible form of aggression and bullying that also does great harm, yet it doesn't command the same kind of attention. Passive Aggressive Behaviour flies under the radar of news coverage and policies of intolerance and as a result, continues much longer and can cause catastrophic damage to relationships, families and teams. Therefore, it is up to you to educate yourself on this type of aggression and never let anyone treat you...

Yes, it's true, 99% of my 2019 Career Counseling clients have been hired and are now working in their preferred field! And the final 1%, well he’s just about there :) This year, I did a lot of Career Counseling, which is great because I love helping people launch into a solid career path that allows them to create a future filled with possibilities. Some of the industries my clients targeted in 2019 were: Customer Service, Office Administration, Publishing, Engineering, First Responders, Law, Forestry/Conservation, as well as Self-Employment. While the range is quite wide, the integral components required to identify skills, prepare professional resumes, train for the interviews and pursue a sustained approach to finding work, are the same. Interestingly, the majority of...

The world you are experiencing exists for no one else but you. Pause for a moment, and really absorb that thought. The world you are existing within, working in, taking your reference from, using to determine whether you're successful, worthy, 'good enough' etc. is only happening for you. Why? Because your precise experience of it (the lens through which you experience it) is a compilation of all your fears and love, your experiences, hopes and dreams and disappointments. You are directly affecting your experience by how you're seeing it ie. whether it's from Fear or Love.  So, in other words, your world is You being reflected back to you. Quantum Theory backs this up: Observation affects Reality   Therefore, if you want to heal...

Sometimes it feels like an inner calling that pulls you powerfully towards a cause. At other times, it can feel like the wind at your back, constantly pushing you towards it, even though you might not know what ‘it’ is. There are those who are born into a fixed role and their Destiny is to use their position in a way no one has done before. And then, some people ‘accidentally’ trip into theirs. One thing is certain, Destiny has a different vibration to it. Everyone has a Destiny to fulfill in their lifetime. Every single person comes into this world with something, that when used for the highest good of others, will leave this world better because they were here.   The...

I’m sure you remember The Golden Rule: ‘Treat people the way you'd like to be treated’. A clear reminder most of us learned in childhood, that if you don’t want it done to you, don’t do it to others. How is it then, that this pillar of good behaviour could be destroying your relationship? Here’s where it works First, let me say that when it comes to most of the people you encounter during the course of the day, The Golden Rule of treating others with the kind of respect and consideration you appreciate, is a sound approach. For example: If you see someone with their arms filled with bags, it’s thoughtful of you to hold the door open for them If...

To best convey the most instantly empowering question you can ask when life throws you a curveball, I need to tell you this first. During the winter months in snow country, we’re quite accustomed to the police reminding us how to drive in dangerous winter weather. Too often, when someone hits an icy patch, skids and loses control of their car, the mistake they make is to turn the steering wheel in the extreme opposite direction of the skid. Then, without fail, the car starts going much too far over in that direction so they frantically turn the steering wheel back in the other direction. Back and forth they go, resulting in one big chaotic mess. The tip the police give...
