Ask Your Wounded Child What She Needs

Our Inner Child often shows up when she’s wounded. Let me explain. When we feel powerless, she shows up – probably by default. We know the Wounded Child energy: We sob. We feel out of control. We have a hard time thinking clearly. And the Suffering Spiral of I’m-not enough thoughts. Of course we make Read More

Self-love: A Daily Ritual

It’s February!

How to Soften into the Heart-Center

One of the hardest things for me being a working mom was traveling home and doing my best to get into a heart-centered, loving space without bringing the work-warrior (and worrier) with me.

Core Beliefs can be changed. Start with Compassion..

Last week we talked about perception and the trickiness around interpreting how we see what we see. Someone emailed me and asked, “how do I see my perception? It’s not like I can take off my glasses and see what shade I am wearing.” That is so true. As unfortunate as it is that we Read More

Are you seeing clearly?

We think we see clearly. In fact, we do SEE clearly. It’s the interpretation and recall that are our biggest issues.
