Purchase Bewilderment

Apr 06, 2015

This past weekend I was having dinner with some friends and we started talking about astronomy. I have always been interested in this topic as it always amazes me when I look up to the sky on a clear evening and see billions of sparkling stars shining down above my head along with beams of white light streaming down from the moon and lighting up the silhouettes of trees and neighbouring houses in my neighbourhood. What is it that makes up our cosmos? Where do science and spirituality intersect? How is it that we can be in space and actually loose years of our life while it is simply the equivalent to a day experienced on Earth? How is it that we are conscious and experiencing all of these natural miracles unfolding around us? Since having dinner with my friends and talking about the multitude of possibilities that make up our reality, my mind has been filled with amazement. I was reminded of a quote by Rumi that states “sell your cleverness and purchase bewilderment”.

Asking Why

Mar 24, 2015

In a world that is driven by work, productivity, success and results it can be very difficult to slow down from the rush of it all and ask ourselves one of the most important questions of all questions- WHY? Why am I doing what I do? 
What is the driving force behind all of the actions I am taking on a daily basis? The question of why is a rarity in the rat-race and yet it is one of the most powerful questions to lead us deeper into what our true life purpose really is. For a number of years I wrote government grants for musicians. I would spend hours and hours of my time filling out forms, making phone calls and writing proposals on behalf of artists, to convince a jury of professionals that they should fund my client’s upcoming sound recording project. (Yes, in Canada our government is an incredible supporter of the arts and culture and actually offers government grants to musicians and artists). While working as a grant writer, I quickly realized that these skills were...

Dealing with Rejection: How A No Leads You Closer To A Yes!

Mar 12, 2015

Have you ever had the experience of putting yourself out on there on the line, risking it all for your dream of what you really want- only to get the answer back that it is a “NO”? If you are anything like me you have probably experienced at least twenty of these “no’s” for every “yes” that has happened in your life. Whether it is in our careers or our relationships with others, rejection can really hurt us on all levels. Nobody enjoys being told “no” for an answer. It is amazing how many of my decisions in life have been a dance around avoiding the experience of this two-letter combination in the alphabet N-O! The words NO have scared me and made me seize up at times only to realize that in the end this answer was a gift. 

I have spent most of my life pursuing my dream of being a musician and a motivational speaker. It is a tough, competitive business and almost everyday I experience rejection when I put myself out...

What Holds You Back?

Mar 07, 2015

In every single person there is an inner critic. A voice that second guesses. We have all had the experience now and then (or for some more often) feelings of doubt and shame for trying to live authentically. I have come to know this voice and feeling as “the saboteur”. This is the name I have given to the inner voice that comes up and tells us that "we are not good enough" or that we will "never get to where we want to go". It is the part of our mind that sabotages us and keeps us trapped in the places of fear, doubt, worry and anxiety. In our world, so many of us struggle because we have become slaves to the saboteur. Many of us don’t even recognize that our saboteur is running the show and making our decisions for us.

It is the saboteur's job to keep us in what it considers “the status quo”. In its opinion it is trying to keep us in what it feels is it’s idea of “Safe”. Unfortunately it ends up sabotaging us because it’s idea...

The World Is What You Think It Is

Feb 25, 2015

All healing happens within us. It is our own thinking patterns that determine whether we are sick or healthy. Most of us though have been conditioned to believe that some outside source beyond us is in charge of curing our diseases and illness but there has never been nor will there ever be such a remedy to cure our illnesses indefinitely. Yes, there are medications that will give temporary relief or assist us in changing our minds to believe that it is curing us but the real truth is that “the world is what your think it is”. It has been suggested that our body is made up of an extreme collection of thoughts. The thoughts we think about on a regular basis shape the world around us. Thinking is an inside job.

Although thinking is an inside job, the outside world has an extremely significant influence on the way we think. Whether it is advertising on billboards, television commercials or You Tube Ads our minds are constantly bombarded with possibilities of what to think...
