How to Hold Space for Grief, Love and You

How to Hold Space for Grief, Love and You

My journey with grief began when I was just 15. We all grieve differently and every loss is different. Sudden violent deaths are way up there on the devastation meter, whereas death by natural causes can be not as difficult to deal with. But again it depends on who you are, your life experiences and how you deal with hardship and heartbreak. I know grief can be confusing and hard to manage. Please don’t deal with it alone. Find friends, or maybe an organization, therapist, counsellor, elder… whoever feels right for you.

What to Do When Life’s Surprises Kick Your Ass

What to Do When Life’s Surprises Kick Your Ass

I don’t know about you but sometimes it feels like life is kicking my ass. The past 3 months have been mostly a living hell for me. I kind of knew this was going to happen, because losing a child to murder leaves you with court, the media, unanswered questions and unbelievable grief. Since it’s been beyond my control and very foreign to me, I had no idea what was in store for me. It’s true that the only thing we can control is ourselves – our choices, responses, actions, thoughts, and how we choose to live, given whatever circumstances we have at any moment.

Why Resolutions Fail and What to Do Instead

Why Resolutions Fail and What to Do Instead

Resolutions. To do or not to do? What to do instead? New Year’s Resolutions rarely work, because they are based on peer pressure, which is based our innate instinct to fit in and belong. What if you make this year about what you desire, about self-celebration and commitment to YOU? What if you create an action plan that works for you and build in supports and resources to help you if self-sabotage comes up? Here’s how to create a year of accomplishment, success and happiness…

How to Create Light in Difficult Times

How to Create Light in Difficult Times

Chronic pain, grief, loss, heartbreak and stress affect a lot of us in different ways. On top of that, winter can be challenging to get through, especially here in eastern Canada where we experience all 4 seasons (and sometimes all 4 in the same day lol!). With Winter Solstice coming up, the Sun will soon bring us more light each day, but even then, we have a lot of cloudy days, and difficulties can sometimes seem to take over our lives.

How to Navigate Roadblocks to Speaking Your Truth

When you uncover truths through these questions, awareness sets in, which is always the first step to genuine transformation. Then you can ask your deeper self what your next steps are. Trust whatever comes through for you, even if it seems to be nothing at first. When you ask with the intention to KNOW what to do next, your next steps will arrive and often in a package you aren’t expecting. In other words, keep all your senses open to receive and pay attention to your intuition.

Make It So! How to Stop Self-Sabotage in the Midst of BIG Transformations

I did this video for you on the fly, no script. The big message here: Sometimes in order to keep on going, you need to stop. Stop to celebrate yourself. Stop to reflect. Stop to take stock on what you’ve accomplished, where you’re at and where you’re going. When you’re creating BIG transformation, your spirit is already there but the rest of you needs time to catch up, so give yourself the time you need…
