Mind Managing Moment

(Photo by Vince Fleming on Unsplash) Instead of making resolutions I have set two intentions for what I want to work on this year: To continue to work on the management of my chaotic mind. To become even more self responsible. This is a full time undertaking, believe me. To that end I wanted to share a mind managing moment I had last week… because it was really cool AND it saved me from throwing myself a pity party of […]

Looking forward. Looking back.

(Photo by Annie Spratt on Unsplash) It’s a brand new year. YIPEE! I have never been one for resolutions, mainly because I forget what they are 2 hours after I’ve set them. However, this year I thought maybe I should come up with some…. and then I decided not to. Instead I took some time to look back on 2017 and what I felt went right and what went wrong.

I’m the Boss of Me

Photo by Steve Halama on Unsplash WHO’S TO BLAME? Radical self-responsibility is a catchy new phrase. To me it means being completely aware that I can blame no one for anything that happens in my life, no one. It’s all on me. When I first heard about radical self-responsibility I thought it was cute. I thought maybe I’ll do a little dabbling with it, try it out. So dabble I did. Weirdly, or maybe not, the more I dabbled the […]

Racism

Racism. It’s been on my mind. The events in Charlottesville stunned me. I never thought I would see white people marching in the streets with torches spewing hate. I thought that was a thing of the past. Apparently it isn’t. How does someone believe that  marching wielding shields and bats while chanting slogans of hate against specific groups of peoples is reasonable, warranted behavior? I have been thinking about how I would coach one of those marchers should they ever […]

Choosing the Red Pill

I spent years going through my life on the default setting. It was really easy to do. Everything happened to me, I was a victim of life. I was blameless. Somehow I woke up enough to start on a journey. A journey to reset the default setting. It’s been hard and easy and awful and beautiful and the further I go on it the more I realize it will never be over. The default setting is an organic thing that […]

What is your sneaky little thought?

  10 years ago I was unhappy, stuck in a deep rut and desperate for answers to the age old question, “Why the fuck am I here.” In my search for answers I met a man who channels the Light Council and signed up for a session. I was really hoping they (the Light Council) would tell me that I was the chosen one, the one who was going to save humanity from itself, the one they had been waiting for. […]

The Four Stages of Competence

The four stages of competence are psychological states we all go through when learning a new skill. I’ll break it down for you using the example of learning how to brush my teeth. Stage 1: Unconscious Incompetence I didn’t know what I didn’t know. When I was probably around three years old it was time to learn how to brush my teeth. Before this I didn’t know anything about brushing teeth or that I needed to do it. The learning […]

Why I Became a Coach

I LOVE MASSAGE I have been a massage therapist for over 20 years. I love being a massage therapist and I am very good at it. My body, however, has been telling me for a few years that it wants to do less massage. In cutting back on massage, I needed to find some way of supplementing my income. I tried some multilevel marketing avenues, but I am not a salesperson. I thought about getting a “job” but after running […]
