Raise The Bar

Apr 08, 2019

Writing from 30,000 feet above the Oregon coast while having spent two days studying at a coach camp with author and coach, Robert Holden.

It was a very beautiful weekend full of seeing and being seen for who we truly are. I had a chance to reflect on what my “one big thing” is in life and what is most important to me.

After several exercises and meditation practices, I am reminded that my one big thing to remember is that I am unconditional love. When I remember that I am unconditional love, not only do I feel complete peace within me, but I also see love everywhere I go an in everyone I meet. 

Following the training, I met up with some friends for dinner. On my way out of the hotel, I quickly went to turn off the bathroom light and accidentally knocked my arm against the bar that holds up the towels. The bar dropped to the floor with a loud THUD. 

As I reflected on what the bar dropping to the floor meant to me, I kept hearing an inner whisper say...

LET GO AND LET IT FLOW

Mar 13, 2019

I launched an online course on mindfulness this past November. I spent so much time working on it and invested a lot of energy and money into making sure it was put together properly. I truly poured my heart into the project.

As I came to the completion of the project and got ready to launch it to the community, I felt myself becoming more and more anxious. Although I wasn’t full aware of this at the time, I look back and notice that thoughts such as, “what if this fails”, “what if it is not good enough”, “what if not one takes the course” were playing out in my mind. There were a few nights that I could not fall asleep as my thoughts kept me awake well into the night, worrying and stressing about if I had done the right thing, if I would make a return on my investment and so on. To say I was anxious and stressed out would be an understatement. My body was tight and my mind was restless.

When it came time to lunch the initial course, I told...

Practice Love On

Oct 18, 2018

My friend Dave is one of the most positive and innovative people I know. I often joke his blood type is "Be Positive". Dave is someone who truly lights up any room he walks in by his positive spirit and presence. Around the time I was working on the writing of my new album, Shine, I was having a conversation with Dave and asked him what he was up to? He told me he was on his way to a family dinner to “love on” his uncle. Little did I know this would lead to one of the album tracks on the new release.

 

Up until this point I had never heard of the practice “love on”. After my conversation with Dave I learned that “love on” is a common tradition in his family, whereby each family member gets honoured on their birthday and/or special occasions by having a dinner in their honour and affirmed that they are unique, special, and loved.

 

As I write this, I am also reminded of a few winters ago when my family gathered together to celebrate the...

Pre-Order Making Sense of Mindfulness

Oct 11, 2018

Learn five principals to integrate mindfulness practice into your daily life in my new book, Making Sense of Mindfulness.

Help make this book a best seller and pre-order a copy on Amazon and ChaptersIndigo today! 

Official release date late November 2018. 

Mindfulness has become a major buzzword in culture today, and yet very few people understand what this word actually means and how to integrate this practice into their daily lives. In a world filled with noise and distractions―including cell phones, millions of advertisements, and increasing pressure to do more, be more, get more, and make more―it is no wonder there is an alarming increase of anxiety and depression cases reported. 

Making Sense of Mindfulness can help you learn the tools you need to counter the external pressures of daily life and provide you with steps on how to create the life that you want.

Love, Keith

Back to Balance: Live Mind-Fully Aware

Oct 06, 2018

The transition of going back to school and work can sometimes be challenging in that many of us fall out of balance. Our routines tend to shift during the summer months and we find ourselves eating different kinds of food, going to bed later, and generally disconnecting from the business that tends to dominate our lives during the year.

I find that coaching clients come back to coaching sessions in the fall and are looking for ways to get back into balance and create new, healthy patterns for themselves.

As we fall into the new season before us, I would like to suggest that integrating a mindfulness practice is one of the best foundations we have available to us to navigate these transitional times.

Consider that now is the moment of power. It is the present moment that is alive and real within us. When we race off into patterns of over-thinking about the past or what’s to come in the future, we literally disconnect from our intuitive wisdom that is available to us in the here...
