How to Release Neediness

Monday, October 8th, 2012

Learn to notice and appreciate the hidden abundance obscured by scarcity and lack, and more abundance will flow to you. Although I enjoy some very nice abundance in my life today (time freedom, work I love, travel, wonderful friends, amazing kids), I don’t need anything in particular to feel rich. As I see it, I […]

How to Be Free of Frustration

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

If you’re feeling frustrated, it means you’re holding a vibe that aligns with a reality that you don’t want. How do you create the vibe of frustration? It’s pretty easy. Simply observe your reality, and then resist or reject some aspect of it. Look at your financial situation, and resist it. Look at your job, […]

Judging vs. Creating

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

I recently asked some people to explain the difference between being judgmental and being selective. I received dozens of different answers. Some people said that being selective is milder, more logical, less emotional, or more practical than being judgmental. Others felt they were just different words to describe the same thing. And still others had […]

Meditationfest – Free Online Event

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

The Ultimate You Mindfest that I mentioned in some previous posts was so well-received that Learning Strategies is hosting another free online event. This one focuses on meditation and is appropriately named Meditationfest. The format is similar to the previous Mindfest except that instead of having one teacher all the way through, the Meditationfest features […]

Lessons From the Recent Workshops

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

I really enjoyed this past weekend at the Conscious Relationships Workshop. It’s so rewarding to see people arriving a little shy and uncertain on the first day, and by the end of the third day, they’ve become close friends and have a new sense of possibility and excitement. One of the reasons I do these […]

How to Reduce Your Mail to Almost Nothing

Monday, February 13th, 2012

It’s been estimated that the average American will spend about 8 months of his/her life opening junk mail. Would anyone consciously choose to do that? Probably not. But how many will end up doing it anyway? And this is just the average. Some poor folks actually spend years of their lives processing junk mail. This […]

Social Bankruptcy

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

For the past several months, I’ve been going through a social reboot. This involves consciously reassessing my social life and deciding what connections and social habits to maintain and what to change. But this year I’ve decided to go further with this process and declare outright social bankruptcy. This is an area of my life that was far […]

Opting Out of Holiday Gift Exchanges

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Today I told my family that I’m permanently opting out of buying/giving/receiving gifts for all future birthdays & holidays. Many people grow up with holiday traditions that center around buying and exchanging gifts with family members. I enjoyed and appreciated this when I was younger, and I have many fond memories about it. These days […]

Getting Back to Growth

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

After shutting down the discussion forums a week ago, I took some time to think about my major focus for 2012, as I like to do at the beginning of each new year. To wrap up 2011 and transition to 2012, Rachelle and I went to Phoenix for Raw Spirit Fest, and then yesterday we […]
