NLP and Reframing Situations

While listening to a Brandy Gillmore session this morning on healing a client’s self-blame/inner-guilt, I finally realized what techniques she was actually using with her client—it was a mixture of distant energy-work, combined with light hypnosis and some serious NLP (Neuro-Linguistist Programming) phrasing and reframing meant to shift the client’s current unhealthy ‘stuck-perspective’ and expandContinue reading “NLP and Reframing Situations”

Dr. Aimie Apigian

Personal assessment of the Trauma Conference: As one who loves to establish a contextual framework for all aspects of this shared life experience, complete with defining the proper components within LIFE itself so that all the interconnections can be assessed and understood both for their individual functions and for the synergy of the entire system,Continue reading “Dr. Aimie Apigian”

Assessing the ‘Tapestry of Life’

Alberto Villoldo   “We have to become still in the midst of the turmoil so we can observe clearly how our actions and the actions of others, past and present, fit together in the tapestry of life. In the timeless instant when we stop moving and simply witness the moment, the dust settles and the bigContinue reading “Assessing the ‘Tapestry of Life’”

‘The Way of the Hero’ per Joseph Campbell

One of my gifts or flaws depending on how you view it, is that I’m always searching for a logical context/framework to better understanding all aspects of LIFE in general; and how we humans interpret/make-sense-of all the ‘beings’ and ‘doings’ of this world that we experience in our somewhat unique way—or as ‘unique’ as 7.9Continue reading “‘The Way of the Hero’ per Joseph Campbell”

Becoming a Spiritual Warrior

I really didn’t want to blatantly rip off Alberto Villoldo’s latest newsletter, but what he mentions here is worth sharing in its entirety with others who might have some interest in the subject matter discussed. In some ways this does remind me of Buddhism’s “Eight-fold Path”—or “The Way to Enlightenment,” complete with the “Four NobleContinue reading “Becoming a Spiritual Warrior”

Sudoku Revelation

I was journaling a few days ago and mentioned that I’d just had a minor revelation while working a more challenging Sudoku puzzle, which was to “Keep working it,” until the correct number for that square became obvious (‘can be this number, but can’t be that one’, etc.). That one breakthrough puzzle piece then becameContinue reading “Sudoku Revelation”

Healing Our Collective Trauma

Because I’ve signed up for other FREE online psychology/spirituality conferences, I now receive numerous offers for additional conferences; and this is one I will definitely be registering for as I recognize a few speakers from other summits, etc.  I’ll admit that I am one of the most ‘dangerous of beasts’: an armchair psychologist with noContinue reading “Healing Our Collective Trauma”

The Universal Creative Force

(Sometimes a post is so spot-on appropriate, I only have to share it so that others can also absorb the higher energy from it.) Tao & Zen  “There is a Universal Creative Force connecting all beings and things, a source of love and wisdom that can be drawn from (and revealed through the creation ofContinue reading “The Universal Creative Force”

Reset

Tao & Zen “To the Taoist mentality, the aimless, empty life does not suggest anything depressing. On the contrary, it suggests the freedom of clouds and mountain streams, wandering nowhere, of flowers in impenetrable canyons, beautiful for no one to see, and of the ocean surf forever washing the sand, no end.”  ~Alan Watts   — Continue reading “Reset”

Telling Our Stories

I’m using myself as example here, but maybe you also have noticed this: Sometimes at night when trying to shut off my mind, it’s hard to know where one intruding thought ends and another begins. I mean they just seem to explode tangentially in first one direction and then another. So as I’m lying thereContinue reading “Telling Our Stories”

Being GRACE

What is GRACE? We talk about it like we actually know what it is or what it involves, but how do you know GRACE when you see it in the actions of others or hear it from their whispering lips with heads bowed or gazing skyward? I can make a simple statement aloud, “I liveContinue reading “Being GRACE”
