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”

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’”

“A New Theory of Intelligence”

Never knowing what will show up in my morning email, this was one of those surprising, “That’s right,…I DID  sign up for these,” notices that I found. Months ago, after seeing a Netflix documentary on the latest-and-greatest humanitarian-related concepts that Bill Gates was now into [He’s constantly reading the newest theories on basically everything eco-scientists/medical-specialistsContinue reading ““A New Theory of Intelligence””

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”

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”

Tilling Her Soul

(When I run across something that really needs to be shared with others, I give it respect and try to provide the viewing opportunity for anyone that the words or the image may touch. So here is the powerful proclamation from Sacred Wild Woman Medicine, with the author listed below.  If I knew the imageContinue reading “Tilling Her Soul”

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”

Living with Ambiguity and Uncertainty

This is the last ‘quote-fest’ from James Hollis’s Living an Examined Life—I promise. I think what I noticed from reading and then scrutinizing quotes from this book, is that it inspired me to do a “What was the meaning of MY LIFE?” recapitulation searching for major themes and significant affecters that helped to make meContinue reading “Living with Ambiguity and Uncertainty”

This LIFE Is Ours to Choose

After that Jungian summit a few months ago, I liked best the session by James Hollis, PhD, so I purchased a couple of his latest books: 1) Living an Examined Life: Wisdom for the Second Half of the Journey, and 2) Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Changing Times. For me, reading Hollis isContinue reading “This LIFE Is Ours to Choose”
