Getting what you ask for ...

Proof - it helps and I'm always on the lookout for it. So here's just a small example of some proof I got recently.

It's been clear to me for some time now that I want to work with couples. In fact, for years I did work with couples - teaching them the fine balance of dancing in one another's arms. And lately I've been wanting a new mentor and teacher to help lead me into this space so that I can help couples create the transformation and healing they want in their relationships 

So I've been walking my talk - saying out loud "I want this",  talking and emailing "I want this", not knowing where this will come from, just "this is the work I want to learn more about, this is the work I want to dive into". And lo and behold a friend and colleague must have picked up my vibe because she posted exactly what I've been looking for. 

If you're wondering if asking is really enough, here's the proof. This is exactly what I was wanting. "Beyond wrong thinking and right thinking there is a field - I will meet you there." This is where I'm going.

In the meantime, if you're looking for someone to help lead you back to yourself, this is what I'm doing right now. Showing people the tools to re-center, to re-connect, and to rejoice in themselves. I have classes starting soon. Let me know if you'd like to talk about anything.

Less Suffering - More Joy - Bring it 2014!

When I tell people I'm a "life coach" the question I often get is - "how'd you get into that?" but I feel like the question with a more interesting answer is "why?".

Because that's what drives me - the why. I want to help people get as much suffering out of their lives as possible ...

Suffering from dragging childhood coping mechanisms into adult relationships and then having no idea why they don't work any more. (you can learn new things!)

Suffering from believing that people and circumstances beyond your control create your feelings. (they don't, your beliefs do, and that's within your control)

Suffering from giving away all of your energy to others because happiness will only come if you make other people happy. (nope)

This is a journey and I'm still on it, but I've learned some wonderful things about how to stop my own suffering and I want to share that with as many people as are interested. So that we can all make the world a more joyful and peaceful place. 

Less suffering. More joy. Bring it 2014. Let's do this!
