    Free Yourself

    Humans love to avoid change. We make all kinds of excuses about why we need to stay where we are, why we can't change, why it's too hard, and why we shouldn't have to keep changing. The simple truth is this; You will not be happy and you will be stuck in your current situation until you make a firm decision to change it.

    What are Trust Issues?

    Expectations are judgements we have about other people to do or not do something based on what we believe about them in that moment. Expectations frequently get broken in the human experience because people are not perfect beings. They simply can't, nor should they be expected to, live up to some high expectations we might have of them. The higher our expectations, often the more likely we are to be hurt by those around us.

    I Used to Write Poetry

    I used to be creative. I used to write poetry and short stories instead of non-fiction. I used to write just for fun with no purpose at all. Then I became an adult and decided productivity was more important and I stopped writing. I stopped reading fiction books. I stopped doing anything that wasn't what I considered purposeful, entertainment wasn't good enough anymore.

    My Awakening Experience

    This isn't something I've shared publicly in a blog before. It's not something I talk about a lot. The only place I referred to it is in my first book, The Truth of My Awakening, where I briefly discuss what happened. I was hesitant to share the full story because I didn't want to sound like a victim. I'm not a victim. But I've decided maybe it can help some of you. Maybe you'll be able to relate to it in a way that will be helpful to you. To access this post, please purchase a subscription

    The Path Unknown

    I tell you all of this because I want you to see the power of your dreams. I want you to see the power that you have to create things that are far beyond anything you can imagine in the moment. But the trick to all of it is trust. As convoluted as the last few years have been for me, I had to trust that eventually I would get to where I needed to go. Even though most of the work that I did had nothing to do, at least as far as I could tell, with the relationship I was trying to get back, I followed it anyway. I've continued to follow it, no matter how messed up it gets, because I know that I will get to where I want to go and it will be better than anything I could ever have hoped for.

    The Great What-If

    The question can be fun like, what if I win the lottery? Or the question can be scary, what if he/she breaks up with me? The idea of what if can conjure up all kinds of stories, ideas, and feelings. We base our self-worth on what if. We make decisions based on what if. We avoid things based on what if.

    Control Your Thoughts, Don’t Heal Emotions

    Emotions are created by our thoughts. Emotions are not random. They don't show up "just because". They show up because of the thoughts we think and the script that plays in our heads. If we learn to manage our thoughts, we automatically gain control over how we feel. Contemplating emotions will actually send us down a rabbit hole of more emotion. We get swept in the tide of how we feel and it's really hard to come back from that. This is why when we're trying to heal from past events, it's really important to try to stay out of the emotion of it. We can't control a tidal wave. We have to control the thinking around it.
