Powerful Relationships – and HOW to build them.

Everyone can remember playing games as a kid, and some of these recollections are so powerful they shape our lives. One member of my extended family loved playing with dolls. Today, she is a highly respected senior children’s nurse in the UK.

We sometimes need to think outside the box of conventional stifling rules that we were bamboozled into accepting as the norm. Being a prisoner to your emotions is not the norm!  Inside every one of us is a “Hero.” We just need a few pointers to give us a new direct experience. (…)

Your dream within a dream? Wake up…NOW!

You wake up from a gripping nightmare.

You were drawn into a deep dark hole, three powerful forces controlling you.

You felt overwhelmed, powerless, being held captive.

The thoughts and images were real,

the emotions that shook you were real,

the body sweat and trembling were real.

Can a dream be for real?

Luckily you woke up, and the nightmare is over.

But is it? (…)

Whose Sovereignty are we talking about? 

I am intrigued by all the talk in Britain and Ireland about Brexit. How England thinks it is losing its sovereignty.

What strikes me on a personal level is how we have completely been captured by the idea we are flawed and weak.

We have surrendered our most precious gift of all, OUR IDENTITY, and in the process, we lost our capacity to see reality.

We do need mindful leadership, but it must start with us. (…)

YOU must move up to become the Horse Whisperer!

Who is running the show?

Your Thoughts?
Your Emotions?
Your Body Signals?

Or are you in control of all three? Especially when they run wild, can you stop them from doing damage, either by calmly settle them down, or at least let them go until they calm down by themselves?

Thoughts of revenge, feelings of rage, a panic attack. As impossible as it may seem at times, the answer is ‘Yes, you can!’. (…)

What’s the greatest gift you could give or receive?

I found myself pondering what is the greatest gift you could give or receive?  Now, depending on where you are coming from right now, there will many and varied answers.

Certainly, when I was young, I dreamed of becoming a famous singer. Later, I wanted the typical trinkets that appealed at that time. Fancy cars, fancy watches and of course a highly paid job.

The typical mid-life crisis was to cause me to seriously question what was I doing with my life. I was experiencing many trials and tribulations! I had tasted the addiction to (…)

Are you in a hole? STOP digging!

There can be times when nothing seems to work and our current skill set does not produce the results we are looking for.

If we are in a hole, it’s probably time to stop digging! Mindfulness in business is no longer just a ‘nice to have’, instead, it’s a necessity, a vital element that allows us to move out of the reactive mode. (…)

Intolerable confusion

Most people would fully understand the phrase, “It’s doing my head in!”

This is a crucial juncture for us that makes us or breaks us. I recall a dark period in my life as a fourteen-year-old lad. There seemed no escape from what looked at the time, terrible conditions at home.

Sadly, this is still a problem for many of our young and dare I say it, not so young! So let me give you one possible solution, when dark thoughts take you over, giving you no respite at all.

DO NOTHING!! (…)
