A moment to reflect today- I’m in the home stretch of my Igniting process and it time to take inventory of my progress. Truth be told, during my first intensive with Marni in which we set my 90 day goals I took a look at the list (it was looping) and thought, “jeezus- good luck […]Read more »

I have had a variety of clients in the past week who are trying to break free from repeating the same patterns. While they realize that the results each time are exactly the same, there seems to be something that propels them forward into madness, frustration and disappointment. That said, how can you immediately stop […]Read more »
Just when I seemed to forget that there are so many women who have not yet discovered the joy of dating with dignity (a.k.a. “Lost Girls), I get to hear stories from some of my male clients who reveal the behaviors of women on the dating scene in Los Angeles. While many would be shocked to hear what happens across dinner tables, in apartments, and on the telephone daily, the truth is that is happens every day. Repeatedly.
I want to take this opportunity to be clear. If you are guilty of any of the following behaviors, I invite you to STOP immediately. As they say, “do not pass go. Do not collect $200.” Just stop.Read more »
There are so many moments in our lives when we feel stuck. We see how we “want” to be, yet recognize that the negative thoughts and feelings we have are the result of certain triggers, (e.g, situations or people) that make us feel powerless, reconnect us to the pain we are trying to leave behind, or create ick feelings of frustration. What’s most difficult is that it can happen when we least expect it, even those moments when we are feeling super groovy.
When you are triggered, however, it doesn’t mean you have to stay “stuck” in this ick feeling.

Here’s an example of how negative victim or conflict thinking can manifest inside your head via the “word” of the inner critical voice I often refer to as the “dark side” voice:Read more »
oly wow, I thought. As the man continued his countdown, nearing the number ONE, people began to run from their seats, pushing past chairs, haphazardly careening past those who had chosen to simply walk. It was incredible. Did these people really believe that this organization could help them to acquire tremendous wealth with ease? Here I had been sitting in the room next door listening to the New Thought Gurus tell people that thinking “inside the box” was limiting their ability to be successful, while this man was calling them to action. He had, I’m sure, spent the hour prior to the sales pitch giving his own version of “believe in yourself,” and now he had managed to inspire (or brainwash?) people to run to pay money and invest in their belief.
Who was right? The Gurus? The Salesman?Read more »
