How to choose the right coach, counsellor, mentor or healer that can support your unique and authentic expression.

Have you been told that you're too sensitive or too emotional, or too intense?   One of my clients recently told me that she is too intense and too direct. “That's what people say about me,” she added. “You’re too intense?” I repeated with a question mark. She replied, “I'm too big! I’m just too much for people!” I smiled on the inside because I had the thought, “me too.” Then I said to her, “but I love that about…

The power of shadow-work, how to open through the heart of pain and connect with your true essence.

By welcoming your shadow, you recognize its beauty and gift, and help it transform into deep peace. We have learned to seek refuge from our shadow—to deny its rightful place in our lives. We shun what we don’t understand. But when we push the unseen under, we become overshadowed even more by the unseen as well as our rejection of it. Releasing the shadow requires deep surrender; it necessitates the willingness to open our door and let it in. It…

How Listening Can Change Your Life.

Listening

“God is always communicating to us!” I heard these words from a dear friend not long ago. I find it particularly exciting when I hear others reflect the essential message that is in my book, which is that every life-experience, felt-sense and relationship is a source of guidance. It’s by listening that we come to receive and understand the guidance. Life-experiences provide us with countless messages that can open us to who we are, to what we truly want and…

Feature Image By Stefan Keller

Is self-neglect getting in your way? Learn how to care for your unmet needs. A lot of spiritual folk are under the impression that “needs” are wrong. They believe that needs are ego-driven and that one should be above them. In the pursuit of enlightenment, people have come up with the idea that needs are a human frailty and that being spiritual requires selflessness and perfection. That couldn’t be further from the truth. The need to be heard, for instance,…

What is the difference between Counselling and Life-Coaching?

Counselling Life-Coaching

I know a lot of colleagues and friends that are in the life-coaching profession, whom I have a lot of respect for and whose work inspired and provoked this article on the differences and similarities between life-coaching and counselling. My intention is to understand both the differences and similarities because coaches tend to compare their work to counselling in their description of what coaching is, however their comparisons don’t shed light on what coaches really do. The tendency is to…

The Secret of how you don’t have to suffer through relationship challenges.

Relatiomships

A lot of people struggle in relationship with personal issues that can easily be addressed in couple's counselling.   Why, why, why then do people believe that they have to do this alone? So many of my clients are in relationship with partners who do not want to see a counselor. There is such a huge fear of being made wrong. But a counselor's role is not to take sides; his/her role is to see all sides and bring awareness to…

How seeing the beauty in life can ease your pain and transform the way people interact with you. (Part-2: Seeing the Beauty Series)

Seeing Beauty

Open your eyes, there is so much more to see A number of years ago, my spirit guides shared a valuable teaching with me. They taught me to ‘see’ the beauty all around me at a time when I was in emotional pain, struggling with abandonment issues. I was traveling with my partner and visiting a close friend of his, a lady friend who had unresolved feelings towards him and who unbeknownst to him was sending me energy-daggers. I was…

How seeing the beauty in life can ease your pain and transform the Earth. (Part-1: Seeing the Beauty Series)

As I write this article, the sky is obscured by a smoke-filled haze due to forest fires burning in Washington State and BC. There is a dull orange hue that is settling on everything, including my mood. I’ve been noticing that most people are in a brain fog, dulled by the blanketed sky and poor air quality. So, a comment made by a close friend really caught my attention. He said, “The sun is painful with the green burning up…

Inner-child healing, the doorway to connecting with the wisdom of your innocence.

Inner Child

Let your child reveal your amazing innocence. Let it be the doorway to your spiritual wisdom. We often think of the inner-child as wounded or in need for care; little do we see it as a guiding force in our lives – as a wise being.  At my book launch celebration, I read parts of my book where I communicate with my inner-child, because I wanted to shed light on the wisdom of innocence. Through communicating with my inner-child, I…
