“I don’t understand how this happened to my life… ” words all too frequently spoken by multitudes of people who find they have arrived at a place where something in their lives has become unbearable; and so the question spills forth in anguish. Are we responsible for the suffering that has taken control of our life? Could it be that we not only invited it in but also have the power to release it?Analogy of Self, Profession and Academia: Blind Men and an Elephant
There is a fable originally circulated in cultures from India that has been translated into numerous theories and continues to be translated into modern academic, professional and self help analyses today. The blind men and the elephant tale illustrates that while our subjective experience maybe true, it can also essentially be limited by our failure to take into account other truths or a totality of truth.Boundaries: The Art of a Loving No
In order to fulfill the contribution you came here to make, one of the mission-critical skills you need to master is how to set boundaries with others. This is where the art of gracefully saying “No” comes in. In this world of information and opportunity overload, without clear boundaries you will find yourself honoring everyone else’s agenda above your own in the important moments of your day. I’ve seen many clients struggle with saying “No” to distracting requests and options, because they value generosity above all or desire to see only the unity that underlies all. Others are reluctant to set boundaries because of the fear that disappointing others may cause harm or anger. Do any of these tendencies sound familiar to you?You’re Making It Up!

If you’re like most of us, you’ve probably felt a block to following through with something you long to do. The block might feel like fear, confusion, lethargy or overwhelm. You might even feel resentment at how much work this new direction seems to require. When you feel resistance to positive change, how do you uncover the truth of the situation? How do you determine if what’s stopping you is a reluctant part of yourself that needs healing, or is a signal to stop pushing yourself because this direction is not yours to take?Surrogate Dreamers
Do others have dreams for us? If so, why? Why would I need a third party to relay a message, via dreaming, to me I wondered? None of the dreams were particularly upsetting, frightening or even negative. So what’s the purpose of having someone else dream them for me? As I thought about it, I realized that someone else can dream for us for a variety of reasons: I often sleep through my dreams lately and don’t remember them. Perhaps I really needed the information now. I sometimes have two competing dreams on the same night and usually only remember one in its entirety. The other one ends up being forgotten entirely or fragmented and incomplete. Perhaps the surrogate dreamer brought me the lost information from one of my fragmented dream memories. Perhaps I completely misunderstood one of my own dreams and had to “see” the information through someone else’s eyes.Do You Know, And Use Your STRENGTHS?
