Inner Peace Opens you to Guidance

Health & Healing

Health is the free flow of energy through the body and can be achieved through an ever evolving mind, body, spirit balance or equilibrium.

Your body has incredible untapped potential to heal, that potential lies in a place of peace, deep inside you. It is always there, always accessible. Silence unlocks the body's innate capacity to heal and helps you move towards greater inner peace, guidance and well-being.

Power to Change Interview

I recently wrote a chapter in a book called Power to Change.  It includes my chapter - 5 P's to Making Life Enhancing Changes as well as chapters from 18 other experts in various modalities of creating change. 

In addition to outlining how to facilitate change, I answer the question - 'why do people often wait until they have a life-threatening diagnosis, like cancer, to make life-enhancing changes?'. The 5 P's are: Pain, Power, Permission, Passion and Purpose.  Please use this link to listen to my interview:

Are you tired of waiting to be 'good enough'?

I am going to take a break from the conversation at the Why Café to talk a bit about WHY people don’t go after what they really want in lifeFear is at the heart of why most people don’t move forward towards their calling, towards what they are really passionate about – often a fear of not being good enough, not making enough money or simply not knowing how to move boldly forward. 
In my coaching I tend to work with highly sensitive, passionate and intuitive women who want to make a meaningful difference in the world but who feel stuck because they are scared to speak up, to put themselves out there, scared that they are not educated enough or strong enough or credible enough. Scared that by speaking their truth, by truly standing up for themselves they will lose or risk too much
These women often put up with behaviour that one could call bullying or a simple lack of respect from others. They put up with it because keeping the peace is so important to them.  But at some point the status quo is no longer tolerable let alone safe or peaceful. They realize that the situation is no longer good for them or others around them. 

Their health may start to be affected, some times in small ways like not being able to sleep well and some times in big ways like a cancer diagnosis.  People may tell them to simply be tough or strong or less sensitive but that is just not in their nature.  I help these women find a way to explore and learn from their fears so they can express themselves, become unstuck and walk courageously down a new path in a way that feels intuitively right for them.  A peaceful yet powerful way of listening to, respecting and expressing their inner knowing - what is true for them. This helps them gain confidence and feel empowered to pursue what they feel passionate about.
If some of what I have said resonates with you, I invite you to comment below by answering the following questions;

  • What truth am I hiding from?
  • If I had no fears what is my inner voice encouraging me to do or say?
  • If done in a peaceful, respectful, how would my life change by doing or saying those things?

Food for thought!


Can you Outswim a Sea Turtle?

The Why Café adventure continues as John asks Casey questions about how to start living one’s life purpose. Casey shares a story about scuba diving with a giant sea turtle.  She decided to float at the surface of the water and watch the turtle as it moved along.  To her surprise even though she was wearing flippers and did not have a life vest she could not keep up to it. 

Curious, the next day she went to the same spot and spotted another turtle. The same thing happened, she tried to follow it but could not keep Image result for giant sea turtleup. This time she observed that the turtle simply stayed put while swimming against the tide and then made a few quick movements in order to ride the wave and move quickly ahead

Meanwhile, Casey was using all her energy and strength to try to keep a steady pace and not fall behind the turtle, regardless of the waves.
That was the end of Casey's story. John had expected the big lesson to be obvious so Casey challenged him to reflect on it and here is what he said; most of us spend a lot of time doing things that bombard us (e-mails, surfing online, watching TV, shopping, outings, reading the newspaper etc.) and that take up a lot of our time and energy. Then when it is time to pursue our passions we often don’t have the energy or focus to really move forward.

Casey was impressed with John's interpretation and he then proceeded to calculate the number of years he would dedicate to answering e-mails if he spent just 20 minutes a day. It was more than one solid year!

So I invite you over the holiday period to think about ways you may be swimming against the tide and using up energy on non-purposeful activities. I have been busy unsubscribing to lots of things lately and bit by bit I hope to spend less time on reading e-mails and more time on writing about subjects that are close to my heart!


Doing What you Love to Do!

Just back from a giving a conference with my speaking partner Joyce O’Brien in Moncton, New Brunswick. I have been busy preparing for the conference for a few months so now I want to continue with the Why Café conversations. My talk in Moncton touched on many of the same subjects from the book like finding your life purpose, your journey and what you can learn from the roadblocks  along the way. 
Back at the Why Café John asks Casey what people do when they find out the reason they are here - their purpose. Casey answers with a question, as she does so often. ‘What would you do if you wanted to become an artist in your spare time, what type of art would you create?’ John says he would try all types of things and then pick the type of art that he really enjoyed creating, no matter what that was.  She encouraged him to apply that notion to the situation when people find their life purpose.  
John played back to Casey his understanding of the situation; 'so once people find out their purpose, they explore different ways of fulfilling it and then choose the one(s) they love to do?' As he said this is felt a physical reaction in his body, an excitement, like he had just uncovered a deep truth or insight. 
This is a great lesson in and of itself. Whenever we get a strong physical reaction to something we say, think or hear (like the chills, watery eyes, a wave of energy etc.) we should pay particular attention because something very meaningful has likely been touched on. In those situations, I would invite you to write down the insight because often these truths come and go like the wind. 
Next time we will hear about Casey’s story of the sea turtle that she claims taught her one of her most powerful life lessons!  Until then, stay alert to signs of your purpose by paying attention to the things you love to do and that give you great joy and satisfaction.
