Your Life Gets to Be More than it is Right Now

With all the awful, gloomy and scary things that go on in the world, it’s hard to believe that we are meant to have outrageously good lives.   …but we are.   We just need to be reminded…repetitively.   And that’s what I plan to do.  Remind you, convince you, assure you, persuade you, prompt you…whatever it takes.   Because we didn’t come here to settle, we didn’t come here to live in fear, we didn’t come here to coast, we didn’t come here to pass time.   We came here to engage, experience and participate…with all the good stuff.   And the cool part?  When we do this we also begin to transform the energy of the entire planet…that’s seriously how powerful we are.  But it starts with you.   It’s true.  You get to have it all.   By divine inheritance you get to be amazingly abundant, vibrantly healthy, gratifyingly successful, deeply loved, and joyfully fulfilled….but more importantly, as you enjoy all of these things, you also get to have the profound peace,...

Why It Can Feel So Hard To Change

We think that our difficulty with trying to change is due to our lack of motivation, drive, determination, and perseverance.  We beat ourselves up; we make ourselves wrong.  But it isn’t about us at all.  The problem is the framework we were given.   There’s a reason so many of us are aiming for more; reaching for something beyond the ordinary.  It’s because our soul knows there’s more; it’s nudging us to expect more, to experience more, to love more, to enjoy more.  It’s badgering us to step into the full potential and unlimited possibilities that are meant for us.   …and it won’t stop til we listen.   Because of past conditioning, this does require some things to change.  The first starting with our mind.   But why does the change feel so hard?   You can affect change through the avenue of science (logic) or through the avenue of spirituality (spirit).  It’s all the same, just different vocabulary; just different points of access.   Although, by and large, I prefer to use the language of...

Soulful Parenting so Your Kids Never Have to Grow to “Recover” Themselves

Here it is!  I’m officially inviting you to join me for a deep dive into 10 Weeks of Soulful Parenting (actually it ends up being a little longer)! If you already know you’re in.  Sweeeet!  Can’t wait!  You can jump in here - http://www.absoluteawareness.ca/soulful-parent/ In the meantime…I’m gonna wear my heart on my sleeve here for a moment.  I want to let you know WHY this program is so important to me…and it could well be true for you too! This program was birthed from my very deep desire for not having to have kids grow to recover themselves.  Although I didn’t know it as I was growing, I am a very sensitive and intuitive person.  And if you would have tried to tell me I was back then, I would not have taken it well.  I wanted NO part of being sensitive…and I would have had no clue what intuitive meant! For a number of reasons, I ended up shutting down my intuition and sensitivity…and I did a VERY good job of keeping it under...

Day 5 No Striving Challenge – The Part Worth & Value Play

Our ego mind can exert a lot of control over us, because it convinces us that we have to prove our value and worthiness. This need to prove our value and worthiness keeps us in a state of striving to do just that.   Some of the ways that our ego mind is appeased come in the following forms of striving…   Parenting - Using your children to reflect your worth & value Encouraging your kids to aim for the honor roll Urging your kids to work hard to be on a certain team Training your kids to behave a certain way   Career - Using your career as a position of status to show your worth & value Trying to make more money Trying to climb the ladder to higher position, power & prestige   Body - Using the state of your body as an image of worth & value Trying to lose/gain weight Hoping to avoid illness   Relationships - Using your relationship status to prove your worth & value Trying to find the right one & fall in love Worried what others are thinking and saying   Homes - Using your home as a...

Are You Using Santa to Manipulate Your Kids?

Christmas is an exciting time of year for kids …but can be an overwhelming one for adults if you allow yourself to get hooked into the stress.  As the excitement increases for the kids, and the stress increases in direct proportion for the adults, I have seen and heard parents using the icons of the season (ie. Santa, Elf on the Shelf) in order to get their children to “behave.” It seems the perfect opportunity to step out of the role of being the “bad guy” ourselves, and putting the emphasis and blame somewhere else.  It takes the heat off of us for a change!!! You’ll hear statements such as: You better behave or you’ll be on the naughty list. You better listen cause Santa is watching. You’re going to get a lump of coal in your stocking if you keep that up. I’m gonna get Santa on the phone if you don’t clean your room. ….or some other more creative renditions. Though it may be a very effective method at the time, the hard truth is ….it’s...
