I like to use imagery to help clients (and myself) understand what life is like when lived “in the question mark.” Imagine then, if you will, the two extreme options. For example, the man I am dating is “in” — meaning he is “the one,” or he is “out,” meaning I must break up with him immediately. If I choose to live in the “question mark,” however, I am standing smack dab in the middle of both these extreme options.
What, though, does it feel like to BE, to LIVE life in the question mark? Here’s how to experience those feelings so that you can begin to go there effortlessly when you feel yourself heading down the path of “either/or” black and white thinkingRead more »
I was thinking about holidays yesterday, and how the men I dated in the past influenced my experience of Fourth of July. There was the “Big Breakup” guy who told me, point blank, on July 4th, that he wanted to cancel plans because he “wanted to hang with his friends, drink some beers, play pool and chill.

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 »
I also want to reflect on my vacation, and the state of mind I had which enabled ideas to flow freely, love to grow and compassion to deepen. In looking more carefully at this, I realized I had a certain routine while on vacation which enabled me to access deeper parts of myself; A routine in which I took care of myself. Ahh — back to the concept of self care, — and an expansion of the Self-Care Bootcamp I began in the end of 2009. So, what did I do in Maui?Read more »
