I’ve always been solution-oriented—meaning, if I saw a problem, I would try to fix it. Even when a fix wasn’t called for, or when my partner really only wanted me to listen, not try to fix things for her. Particularly during the G W Bush years, I read voraciously to understand what was wrong and how I could participate in fixing it. So much of that time, in particular, really irritated me. This irritation could occur at all levels—the Bush and crew antics were national and global, but there were local things that got to me, too; e.g., Continue reading

27 — Our Lives Are Ruled by the Rules of Our Lives!
Update 22 July 2014: Also see blog post #24—Shame, Guilt and Judgement and #19—What Influences You? for more on thoughts and beliefs, and their effects on our lives.
Our lives are ruled by the rules of our lives… What does that mean? What are the rules of our lives anyway? Are you thinking, “I don’t have any rules. I’m a free spirit and I make up my own rules!” or something like that? Perhaps you’re not as “free” as you think/believe you are.

25 — How to Manifest—Really!
Don’t Believe What I Say!
There’s a lot I have to say here that isn’t universally accepted. I encourage you not to believe any of it just because I’ve said it and you’ve read it. In fact, don’t believe anything I have to say here. Rather, go deep inside yourself and determine for yourself whether or not any of it is true. What is true is what you know (in your heart—not in your mind) to be true.
So, this blog entry is about manifesting what you passionately want in your life. What you will find here is not what I wrote as much as what came to me—actually, as do all these blog entries. The words flow and I write them down! Then where do the words come from? Continue reading
24 — Shame, Guilt and Judgement
What are shame, guilt and judgement and how do they affect us? Let’s start by defining each:
Judgement: Judgement is perhaps the easiest of the three to define or at least to understand. When we judge—a situation, another person, or even ourselves—we are evaluating that object (and we do make them or it an object) according to some belief about the way they or it should be, or behave, or act. Judging is an act of Continue reading
