how to forgive
What is forgiveness? How do you go about forgiving? What happens when you actually go ahead and forgive? Forgiving requires a courageous choice. The courageous choice is whether you are willing to consent to this healing. In Greek, to forgive means “to let go.” Forgiveness is offered without conditions. Using techniques such as forgiveness meditation/prayers or stopping to apply internal reflection, forgiveness can be centered on someone alive or someone who has passed on. In letting go and forgiving, the process is not about wishing they would change. Forgiveness should not be confused with reconciliation. Reconciliation requires mutual interest with...
Can you name the first woman to run for president of the United States? Very few people can, but this nineteenth-century woman embodied perseverance demonstrated by the feminine behaviors of courage. By giving herself permission to be courageous, she journeyed through life as a spiritual seeker, individualist and social activist.

action to make change
 “Things do not change, we do.” Henry David Thoreau This short statement is a call to action that labels us as personally responsible for the directions our lives take.  If life is different than we wish it to be, merely waiting for something to change is like hoping to complete a marathon while keeping our feet planted at the starting line. Any scientist will tell you that change requires action. Many people know that they want change, but feel as though they are stagnant, uninspired or even stuck.  It is not uncommon to want change, but often we feel stuck because...
