EVOLVING WOMEN -ARE YOU ONE?
You are meant to live like your soul depends on it...because it does. The nature of your soul is to guide you toward deep joy & meaning in everyday life.
Are you over 40 and asking "Is this all there is?" Are you feeling trapped in dullness? Do you numb your Self to keep going? Has your life lost meaning, focus, and joy? You are not alone and I can help you.
I offer personal coaching for women over 40 who aspire to go higher, deeper, expanding consciously in their personal expression in life or work.

Dr. Elisha Goldstein addresses a concept that comes in the form of a question, which he and Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn suggest we ask ourselves when life’s demands seem overwhelming to us. A simple question with a centering result. Continue reading
Is it possible times haven’t changed that much over the last 2,500 years? I keep hearing about how fast the changes are coming these days. It feels that way, but let’s not confuse speed and chaos with reaching a higher consciousness.
There is little to tell. My consciousness has never associated itself with this temporary body….The words of Anandamayi Ma
When you change yourself and you change the world. If your intention is also to make the world a better place with through speaking or writing, then you will find Pipher’s personal thoughts and observations, elaboration on writer’s formats and techniques to use and, many references and quotes from such inspirational people as Thich Nhat Hanh as motivating as I have. Pipher’s book’s tagline reads, “An inspiring guide for transforming the world with words.”
The ultimate use of wisdom is the realization of the limitations of consciousness as we know it. It is wisdom that can finally lead to self discovery, which is the birth of intelligence. A saturation point must be reached within our consciousness: we must see the self-enclosing nature of thought. The never-ending rat race must be seen for what it really is. This can happen at any point in time. It is wisdom which can open our eyes to the facts of life.”

Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s words are beautiful, inspired and form images often used in meditation. That said, I have a different take on meditation than that stated above which I want to share here for your consideration. Baba says “Service is the highest spiritual discipline. Prayer and meditation, or knowledge of scripture, cannot help you reach the goal as quickly as service can. Continue reading
“I think perhaps I have gotten more out of life than it contains.” Natalie Clifford Barney I believe it is possible to get more out of life than it contains. How? By living in awareness, in conscious alignment with the … Continue reading
Many people feel trapped today by their jobs, habits, weight, money, family demands, illness and so on. People are so numb to their thoughts and feelings they have lost sense of their options, desires and their own solutions. Numbing through addictions, depression, TV and the internet all keep the thoughts and feelings at a subconscious level. Going within your self each day for silent reflection vanishes the traps that once seemed inpenetrable. You won’t see the situation the same way. It will feel different. You will behave differently without much effort or thought. Your freedom is within no matter what the traps are. Your body will de-stress, symptoms will reverse, and behaving to numb out will not be an option or desirable any longer. Continue reading
Welcome to tip #2 for de-stressing your holidays this year. The topic today is giving.
Giving is the best way to relieve stress at any time of the year. You might be saying something like “Giving?? Are you kidding? that’s all I ever do is give, give and give some more until I’m all worn out. I give to my kids, spouse, work, friends, and elderly parents. I have nothing left to give.”
As I recall, this phenomena was first identified in a study of prisoners of war, and later with battered women … or maybe it was Skinner’s behavioral operant conditioning studies that came first. I am a little more awakened now. “We are all one” has deepened in its meaning. Continue reading
Where do you think our consciousness is located? In our mind, our brain, our body? Have you wondered if it is located outside of your body or or mind – out there somewhere? Think about it for a minute. When you think of butter, what makes the thought and image come to you?
There will always be enough time because time will expand when I am in consciously seeking and receiving. It contracts when I am unconscious and engaged in avoidance and self-centered thoughts and actions. Continue reading
When I read or hear people talk about conscious living it’s most often in the context of meditation, spirituality, yoga, eating vegan and other green healthy ways of living. I am all for that, don’t get me wrong, but when you are awake you also become conscious of your dirty refrigerator shelves, the dust layered under armoires, and the dust-balls, pens and paperclips stuck between your couch cushions. Or more correctly I should say the thought to look between your couch cushions will enter your awareness. You get my drift. Continue reading
