    • Three Powerful Techniques for Creating a Year You'll Love

      Hello 2018! Creating a visual representation of your goals and dreams is a powerful technique to support purposeful action. The representation (or anchor) acts as a strong reinforcement of the energy and intention driving your goals and helps you focus on what is truly important to you as the year unfolds. I've used many different techniques over the years, from creating Vision Boards - simple collages on poster board using words and pictures torn or cut from magazines, or more fluid versions using corkboards and tacks (nice because you can easily add or rearrange as changes occur) -

    • A Missed Opportunity

      There is nothing I love quite as much as a summer road trip. Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the City of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. A family celebration was planned, so I took a couple of extra days on either end of the event to holiday and play tourist. Naturally, I posted about my journey across the Salish Sea on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Almost immediately, new followers appeared, and a couple of local businesses took the time to tag and welcome me to the island. My friend and colleague, Rebecca Coleman was also island-side, so we planned to meet up at a

    • Manifesting What Matters

      UPDATED: SEPT. 19-13 This week I was reminded that it's the little things that count. Lately, I've been playing a little in the fields of attraction.  I was on a roll a couple of days ago so I decided to play with manifesting a surprise $100. Just for fun, I am testing the universal field, seeing how long it takes between expressing a desire and its manifestation. What is the distance

      Please Release Me

      Have you ever had that experience where you feel a combination of paralysis and panic? It feels as though you've been filled up with concrete and all that moves inside you is your heart, and that is beating a mile a minute. No? Hm. Well, for some it is a familiar feeling -  a kind of procrastinator's paralysis that prevents progress on goals, or taking action that you know, rationally,

      There's Bears in There

      When I was a girl, I had a cousin the same age who was firmly convinced that bears lived under our shared bed and in the bedroom closet. He would whisper to my mother at bedtime, in his somewhat unnaturally low and serious boy's voice: "Aunty, there's bears in there". This was declared with a five-year old's sad wisdom, clearly conveying his conviction that my mother's complete ignorance of the

      The Suitcases of Tiny Failures

      I recently had the opportunity to talk a little bit about my travels on the multipreneurship path. It was by way of introducing myself on Facebook to a group I'm taking on a mindfulness retreat this Fall. I shared a bit about how I've grown my coaching skills by following the threads of whatever I seem to need more of in my own life. I've been on a personal leadership journey for the past two

      The Goosebump Legacy

      Do you ever have that experience where you see, hear or read something and you get gooseflesh? I recently experienced a wicked case of goosebumpiness on a summer holiday trip to the UK. I get the 'bumps when I encounter something ancient, deeply poetic, soul-wrenching or insanely true. Even my goosebumps were getting goosebumps on my recent trip. A performance of 'The Curious Incident of the

      Want the Truth? Look Inside.

      Woke up this morning pondering the nature of truth. Yep. It's truly the kind of stuff I think about. C'mon, you know you do, too. It's just human to wonder about these things. Many years ago I attended a profound personal development workshop. Posted prominently on the front wall was a large sign pretty much screaming: TELL YOUR TRUTH. Being writerly inclined, I silently pondered: Shouldn't
