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:

WHY Not?

Mini recap... our main character John got stuck behind an accident and then proceeded to get lost and wound up at the Why Café...
After placing his order, Casey (his waitress) helps John read the question on the menu (why are you here?) from a different perspective and John starts to see its newfound significance.  As John is laughing to himself at the ridiculousness of the situation (he is lost and hungry, in the middle of nowhere and she is asking about his life purpose), Casey continues with the warning that once he truly asks himself the question – why am I here? a chain reaction may be set off.  For example, the question may be on his mind when he wakes up in the morning, it may keep popping up during the day and it may even be with him in his dreams. 
John starts to wonder if he really wants to go down this road.  He shares his thought with Casey and adds that his life is pretty good so why would he want to change things.  Casey gives him another smile and says ‘really?’.  Casey is referring to a situation many of us may feel on a daily basis but we don’t often take the time to really reflect on it.  She is challenging John, is he really happy, fulfilled and energized on a regular basis?  Is he satisfied with the important aspects of his life?  Upon further reflection John admits to having struggled, especially in his recent past, and that he is not that satisfied with things as they currently are.
She asks him – is that why you are really here?  John wants to object but he too is starting to wonder if his little side trip is more than just a weird set of circumstances, maybe it is the answer to his unexpressed desire to make changes in his life.
If you are somewhere you don’t want to be in life I invite you to ask yourself – why is am I in this situation?  What am I meant to learn from it?  What could I change for the better as a result of my struggle? Who is meant to help me on my journey?
Until next week, be on the lookout for weird coincidences that just may be bringing you the insights or answers you have been seeking.


Are you sure about what you want in life?

We are back at The Why Café and John takes a look at the menu and sees a little message warning people that before ordering they may want to ask about the purpose of their passage at the café.  Seeing his confusion, the waitress explains that people who pass through The Why Café often leave as changed individuals and so they now help people through the learning process.  John is very perplexed and if not for being very hungry and out of gas (i.e. stuck in his current paradigm) he may have left then and there.
It is late in the evening when John placed his order but he chose the breakfast plate.  Casey, his waitress (and spiritual guide), asks him if he is sure.  He affirms his choice and she said that it should be possible.  Again seeing the metaphor in this scene the message becomes a very profound one.  When you are sure of what you want, the universe will help you make it possible.  On the other hand, if you are not sure and making decisions with little or no reflection, confusion will reign and you will not likely reach your ultimate destination.  
As our journey to The Why Café continues and the metaphor of John’s life deepens, you may want to ask yourself do I feel stuck in some aspects of my lifeAm I facing roadblocks that have brought me to a halt? Am I really hungry for more of something in my life?  And finally, do I want to discover a GPS that can lead me down a new path that offers more clarity and fulfillment?
See you next time as the conversation at The Why Café takes on new twists! 


Why are you here? This is one of the questions on the back of the menu at The Why Café. 

Some of you may have read the intriguing book The Why Café by John Strelecky.  Over the next few weeks I will be sharing with you some of the insights from the book that may open you up to a new level of introspection
The character in the book is named John and as the story begins he sets off on a much-needed holiday only to get stuck behind a major accident on the highway (of life). After his patience runs out he decides to try to find an alternate route.
Without realizing it John’s trip starts to become a metaphor of his life.  He set out with a game plan, ran into some roadblocks then headed off out without a map or a clear sense of where he was going. As time passed, he got lost, hungry and almost ran out of gas.  Yet he kept going, feeling it was too late to turn back, getting himself deeper into a situation in which he felt very powerless. 
He eventually happens upon a diner in the middle of nowhere.  At the diner (The Why Café), he tells the waitress that he is frustrated, lost and out of gas and she smiles, a knowing, slightly sly smile that John does not yet understand.  Then she asks him the big question – why are you here?  He explains his view of the situation, not realizing that the question is a bigger one, and refers to his purpose for being on earth, not at the café!  She smiles again.
Until next time you may want to see if the question ‘why AM I here?’ resonates with you. But be forewarned, once you start reflecting on it you might not be able to stop…
