It seems to me that being addicted to lack (focused on what you don’t have, sabotaging the flow in your life) is being addicted to fear/adrenalin/victim. It would be helpful to give some thought to what being […]

by Patricia

Who would have thought that the deep freeze (-50 Farenheit) could be a source of inspiration and reminders of how healing works? I didn’t, at first.

Do you watch the kid movies? About Santa and reindeer and snowmen? An inner child wanting the times of innocence […]

Hobby? What’s that?

Still Breathing? You Are Learning!

by Patricia

We are learning every moment, processing billions of bits of data per second through the system that is our body and brain. The question is “What will you choose to consciously pay attention to?” We are aware of only 2,000 bits of data per second and the rest of the billions are, fortunately, processed without […]

Is Happiness Highly Over-rated?

by Patricia

I’ve been having discussions recently with people about happiness, as clients have been saying “I just want to be happy.” This peaked my curiosity and I started asking the question “What does that mean to you?
