Have Fun Being Unapologetically YOU!

Angus didn’t realize he had taken someone’s negative feedback about our Vlog personally until it came time to do it. What I really appreciate about the pre-recording experience was watching Angus go from reactive and caught up in his thinking one moment to seeing his mind shift and getting perspective in another. It is amazing how quickly our minds change, and it is so powerful to see how we all have that same capacity to drop into peace and clarity at any moment.   I can relate to Angus getting caught up in insecure thinking. It happens to me too. It is...

In this episode, Leah and Rohini discuss emotional health. Rohini explains that each of us has innate well-being.

Taking the Easy Road: No Thinking, Just Doing

It has been a busy week in the Ross household. Our daughters have their final exams, and we are feeling the impact as a family. However, for the most part, moods are good. We are all looking forward to going to Sri Lanka for the winter break. We are meeting my dad, my step-mom, and my brother there. As many of you know, I did not grow up with my father. This will be an opportunity for us to connect in his homeland, deepen my understanding of my heritage, and share this with my family. I look forward to being in...

Accepting Ourselves Warts and All Brings Out the Best in Us

I just finished co-facilitating a Less Stress, More Living Workshop. It was so moving to witness the participants experience more freedom of mind and have a deeper connection with their true nature. One of the themes that emerged during the workshop was a concern that if we hold the perspective that everyone is doing the best that they can based on their understanding in the moment that this would condone bad behavior and ultimately encourage it.   This reminded me of a story one of my mentors, Linda Pransky, shared at a workshop. She explained there was a time when she had problems...

Debt Collector Madness, and Owning the Infinite, Creative Power of Thought

  Life is an illusion, but we play it as real. — Sydney Banks   I randomly picked up an envelope in the large pile of mail I had waiting for me upon returning from my trip. It looked innocuous enough, and as good a place as any to start. However, when I opened it, I was stunned. It was a letter from a collection agency stating that I owe thousands of dollars in taxes to the State of Colorado.   I have neither lived in Colorado nor worked in Colorado. I have been a happy, tax paying resident of California for over twenty years....

Wake Up to Your Well Being and Share Your Love

I am at the airport incredibly early now that I have embraced my husband’s caution regarding missing flights. I would have still made the flight if there had been an earthquake in London. However, since I am traveling alone, this gives me plenty of time to reflect on the amazing three-day workshop I just finished co-facilitating.   The workshop was amazing because of the incredible participants. The level of openness, willingness, authenticity, vulnerability, honesty, and courage they demonstrated was deeply inspiring. I feel grateful to have witnessed the transformation and learning that each person demonstrated and shared. The depth of the love...

How an Understanding of the Three Principles Illuminates the Power of Thought

I was introduced to the Three Principles in 2011. I wasn’t looking for an introduction. I was simply pursuing a coaching certification to add to my qualifications. Steve Hardison recommended Michael Neill’s Supercoach Academy, and who was I to argue with “The Ultimate Coach.” Little did I know that Michael Neill was in the midst of his own “inside-out revolution” and was in the process of reorganizing his school around the teachings of the Three Principles. On one of the Supercoach weekends, I heard George and Linda Pransky speak. I was drawn in. I wanted to learn more. I could...

Understanding the Power of Thought

It can seem overly simplistic to say that thought creates our experience. Most of our thoughts are so invisible to us they don’t look like they generate our personal reality. When I tell my clients their experience comes from thought, some only see the simplicity of this explanation and miss the profundity of the implications. The understanding is then initially dismissed as unhelpful. Others struggle to see that thought has anything to do with creating their experience. Instead, they see their experience as sourced from outside of them, the result of circumstances and situations.   I was that way for many years....
