• Self-Trust: The Magic Of Trusting Yourself

    In spiritual circles, the importance of trust has been drummed into us, as a fundamental practice to encourage ease and flow in life.  I too am an advocate of trusting in the Universal Intelligence.  More recently, however, I have discovered the power of Self-Trust, which I find to be the precursor of trusting in general.  Without self-trust, you can’t really trust in the Universe, life, your spirit guides, or anything else.

    Trusting yourself may be easier than you think.  I’ll show you how in this post.  But first, here are some benefits of practising self-trust:

    Self-trust is a big component

  • The Power Of Wordless Communication

    Have you ever wanted to shoot off that email right away, or to speak to someone face-to-face urgently, gripped by impatience?  We seem to think that if we don’t do it right away, we would be disadvantaged in some way.  We think our words, written or spoken, have so much power that we must assert this power right away.  We may be so accustomed to using words that we can’t see the value of not using words.

    Suppose I ask you to communicate or take action without using words.  How would you handle it?  What are some of the non-word … Keep reading

  • 3 Mindset Shifts You Can Implement Right Away To Transform Your Life

    Here are three simple mindset shifts you can implement right away to promote powerful changes in your life and give you more inner peace.


    MINDSET SHIFT #1:  Stop Figuring Out Why

    I used to be obsessed with working out why things happened.  I couldn’t leave anything not figured out, explained, analysed and neatly assigned to a mental compartment.  I would obsess about finding the answer to why someone did, didn’t do, said, or didn’t say, something.  What was their motive, agenda, frame of mind?  With the precision of a scientist, I would trace back events, leaving no stone unturned, until … 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

  • 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

  • The Power Of Naming Your Fears

    I was speaking with someone about the role of awareness in preventing the progression of negativity and found myself using the story of Rumpelstiltskin as an analogy. Since then I’ve been reflecting on the lessons we can extract from this fable about dealing with fear.

    Most of you will already know the Brothers Grimm’s story of Rumpelstiltskin.  It goes something like this:

    A man boasts to the king that his daughter can spin straw into gold.  The king locks the girl up in a room full of straw and forces her to do just that.  Should she fail, she’d be … Keep reading

  • Addiction For Human Drama: Are You Addicted to Stress, Anxiety and Dramas?

    A common scenario when I’m working with a client – whether they are dealing with addictions, eating disorder, weight issues or relationship problems – is listening to how their life has gotten out-of-control and the resulting stress and anxiety they battle with.  They want to get rid of these uncomfortable symptoms, and I understand that.  But sometimes, I notice that the client does not actually want to give up their dramas.  “I just want to have a peaceful life,” they say with a  heavy sigh.  Yet I may sense in them an attachment to living a highly-strung, chaotic life.

    In … Keep reading
