Casino Spirituality

June 8th, 2009

Sunday in Reno at the Grand sierra I ventured through the crowds, flashing lights, noise and dim lights to the Grand Theatre to attend the Transform Your Life Conference with Marianne Williamson, Rabbi Shmuley and Dannion Brinkley. They talked about life, love and the hereafter. Marianne encouraged us to get off our butts and grow up and realize this is not a dress rehearsal. We\’re doing it and our ‘collective we’, have things to do and do now. Feeding all the children is paramount in her message. The Rabbi talked about sex. Yeah, he talked about sex and the dying of it. We have overexposed... Read More

Susan Boyle\’s Beauty on the Inside

June 8th, 2009

Thanks to the Internet, we all had a chance to learn a lesson from Susan Boyle when she sang “I Dreamed a Dream” before judges of the TV show, “Britain has Talent.” What a surreal and thrilling moment for her. And what a wake-up call for the rest of us. Her 15 minutes of fame aren\’t over yet. So far, almost 100 million viewers have seen her on YouTube. Why the viral nature of this phenomenon? Of course we\’re all pretty fed up with the media focus on the economic meltdown or vapid teen pop stars, and desperate for a heartwarming story. Or are we really looking... Read More

Making Minestrone in the Moment (While Dancing the Ideal Life)

April 28th, 2009

What makes a good minestrone soup is balance. First, one must consider the variety of vegetables and the amount you\’ll use. Second, vegetables need to be cut and sized so they complement each other. Then there\’s the right blend of spices and herbs; and, finally, its flavor is determined by how long you cook it. Balance these elements, and you\’ll get perfect minestrone every time. What makes a delicious person is very much like the minestrone formula. How a person assembles their particular variety of qualities—how each quality is proportioned among the others—determines... Read More

Validating Your Value

November 10th, 2008

An amazing coaching client who is currently in the “daring to dream” process recently made a very insightful observation that she needs to learn to validate herself for the ways she is uniquely gifted. I couldn’t agree more! Most people will agree that genetically, just like snowflakes, no two people are alike. Even identical twins have individual likes and dislikes, interests, passions, dreams, and talents. Intellectually, I believe most of us would say that every single person on the face of the earth has something unique to offer…something no one else in the world can exactly match.... Read More

1-2-3 Find My Dream

October 7th, 2008

“But I don’t know what my dream is,” my friend sighed. She sounded frustrated. I don’t think I’ve ever talked with someone who actually wants to live a boring, uninspiring life. In fact, most people get pretty excited when they think about what it would be like to follow their passion and purpose every day. The problem is, it isn’t that easy. Simply liking the idea of turning your dreams into reality isn’t enough to make it happen. For people like my friend, they’ve been stuck in the life that’s just happened to them for so long, they’re no longer sure what their dream even... Read More
