Truth Byte #10: Not everyone deserves your time.

Have you ever wanted to be a princess? How about a super-hero? I have. And it hasn’t really gone away as I grow older.

Take Sunday, for example. I was over-booked into family commitments: Beavers for the boy followed immediately (and in another part of town) by a birthday party for the girl. Now, just to clarify, Sunday is usually our lazy day, the day we say no to everything, and spend the day just lounging in our pjs with cartoons and novels and family snuggle time. But we had said yes, and I don't like breaking promises. Plus I heard a rumour that I may see a princess today.

Truth Byte #9: Stop complaining and do something about it.

Ten minutes until appointment time. The room is ready, I am taking my mandatory ten deep breaths to clear my head and get aligned for the next client.

I watched women who were bent over by the weight of their lives stand up straight and claim partnership with the Goddess. I saw children literally grow up before my eyes as the adults that they had become recovered from the past and started waking up to the lives that they had created. All because they were willing to be wrong about God.

Would You Rather Get the Flu?

Truth Byte #7: You are busy for no reason. Seek stillness.

It is flu season. Around me, friends, family, and clients are dropping like flies, even those who were diligent enough to get the flu shot. This got me to thinking: why does it take a totally body drama for us to be willing to just stop and lay in bed for a couple of days? Read More
