• When Everything Seems to Go Wrong… It is Powerful!

    Are you in one of those periods where everything just seems to fall apart?  Where the whole world seems to be against you?  Where anything that can go wrong, is going wrong in one way or another?

    I have good news for you:  Contrary to how it may seem and how it’s making you feel, you are in an immensely powerful place.  If you know how powerful this is, you can take advantage of the gifts it contains.  But if you see it as unfortunate and a series of bad luck – that you’re in a bad phase of your … Keep Reading

  • What To Do When Nothing Is Showing Up

    Are you in one of those phases when you’ve been waiting for some changes but nothing seems to be happening?  As far as you know, you’ve done all the right things, according to what you know about the laws of manifestation.  You feel you’ve done everything that you’ve been taught – you’ve trusted, surrendered, taken inspired actions, etc. – yet nothing is showing up.

    You’ve even tried doing nothing.  You’ve tried sitting in the void, but the void can be a bitch when all you get is pain or emptiness.  What else is there to do?


    #1  Do something creative.

  • Why Getting Started Before You Can “Afford” To Can Bring In The Magic

    Here’s a scenario I often see:

    You have a creative project that you’ve been ‘sitting on’.  The project may be writing a book, creating a business out of a cool idea, travelling to a place that particularly draws you, going back to school to study something you love, or learning a creative art form.  You love the idea of the lifestyle you imagine you’re able to have once you have embarked on this project.  But you think you need to achieve certain financial goals before you can afford to do it.  Years go by while you tell yourself that you … Keep Reading

  • Arresting The Cycle: How You Can Take Your Power Back And Avert Crisis

    Nobody likes crises.  Yet most who have survived one would be able to tell you that they gained something valuable from the experience and how it’s made them better persons.  I believe that crises often happen to help steer us back on the path that is aligned with our soul:

    Sometimes, it happens after we’ve failed to see and follow repeated signals that our soul had been giving us; when anything short of a crisis would not get our attention.

    Other times, it happens because the crisis is deemed to be the best way for us to learn specific lessons.Keep Reading

  • Tony Robbins Is Wrong: Why Taking Action Is NOT The Most Powerful Way To Shape Your Life

    “The most powerful way to shape our lives is to get ourselves to take action,” says self-help guru Anthony Robbins.

    I like Tony and admire his work; as far as motivational teachers go, few can stoke my inner fire for motivation, and get me going and taking actions quite like him.  But whilst I appreciate the power of taking actions to move towards what we want in life, I disagree that it is the most powerful way to shape our lives.

    There’s a whole lot more involved that needs to be taken into consideration than just making yourself take actions. … Keep Reading

  • Fear Of Success: Are You Sabotaging Your Success?

    I’ve been noticing at this time that those of us who are on the path of conscious evolution are being nudged to the next level of awakening to our true selves.  As a therapist and soul worker, I feel called to assist in lifting the collective veil so that we live more authentic lives.  For me, it means continuing to challenge conventional wisdom, to find new pathways towards our evolution.

    One thing I have noticed increasingly is that many people who regularly consume self-help and spiritual healing products remain stuck in unhappiness.  Chasing after the next new book, course, seminar, … Keep Reading

  • Channeling Creativity from Endings, Losses and Disappointments

    I was listening to Srinivas Rao’s The Unmistakable Creative podcast where he interviewed Allison Gryphon, who upon being diagnosed with cancer channeled her energy into something she calls “fearless filmaking” – both as a coping mechanism and an inspired project.  She described the moments just after she had learnt the news, where she experienced life being fully present for the first time: walking on the beach she felt sand like she never felt sand before; eating strawberries and drinking expresso, and truly tasting them for the first time.  She reminisced about how wonderful it would be if that is the … Keep Reading

  • 20 Ways To Renew Yourself

    There is nothing more exciting than living a life of constant self-renewal.  Self-renewal is the attention you give towards ensuring that your life is forward-moving, with every step bringing you closer to who you really are.  It entails stripping away the old and stale, so that you become increasingly aware of the purity of your true essence.

    Every time you renew yourself, you relate to your world with a renewed sense of aliveness, seeing beauty and colours through fresh eyes.  As you experience this newness, your life-force is activated.  Life, inside and outside of you, becomes rich and inspiring.

    If … Keep Reading

  • When Failure Is Success

    I was talking to a friend about the show she gave as a performance artist and telling her how much I admired her bravery in giving such a raw performance.  She said that stepping onto the stage was huge for her growth; as a perfectionist, she wanted everything to go perfectly.  “I failed… many times,” she said.  “But of course, that was my success.”  I felt shivers.

    That last statement was a big inspiration to me.  Suddenly, I saw how often so many of us stop ourselves from doing the thing we love to do, just because we refuse to … Keep Reading

  • Book Review: Tiny Buddha’s Guide To Loving Yourself

    Tiny Buddha’s Guide To Loving Yourself

    I mentioned in my previous post that there is a lack of resources that can truly guide us to practice self-love.  Perhaps you too have been hoping that a practical and inspiring guide on the subject of self-love would be available.  If so, Lori Deschene’s new book Tiny Buddha’s Guide To Loving Yourself should come as good news.

    This book is a gem.  The author, who is the founder of Tiny Buddha (one of the most popular personal development sites on the internet), has compiled 40 inspiring and touching personal stories shared by contributors to the Tiny Buddha blog.  I … Keep Reading
