Spend Consciously, Live in Balance

Do you ever feel that your relationship with money could be healthier? More in balance? Would you love to end the vicious debt cycle and be more connected to your spending; which in turn will bring you more connected to yourself?

It’s doable. But it requires being awake to your money: how you earn it, how you spend it and how you save it.

Ask yourself these questions:

* Does what I am doing with my money match my value system?

* Is my use of money enhancing my lifestyle?

* Or am I full of fear and resentment because this relationship is not working?

If you answered yes to the last question, read on. There is help on hand for you.

Work-life Balance – Maybe You Can’t Do Balance?

Work-life Balance – Maybe You Can’t Do Balance

Every one wants balance. Is there such a thing? Clients hire me as a coach for this reason just as often as the clients who want more time and money.

In order to get some power with this concept lets shift how we think about balance. We tend to think of balance in terms of equal time to equal areas in our lives. In our minds, we relate to balance this way even though we know it isn’t possible to spend equal time to equal areas in our lives. Especially, when our work, for most of us, takes up more than half of our waking hours each day.

Let’s use a metaphor; Imagine that achieving balance is like being a great juggler. The balls you juggle represent areas of your life...

All Things in Harmony: A Native American View of Health and Illness

All Things in Harmony: A Native American View of Health and Illness

The view of health by Native Americans is both all encompassing and thoughtful. Traditional medicine can play a more stoic and relentlessly lend to the scientific approach, but Native Americans have a more holistic outlook.

Health is viewed as a balance or harmony of mind and body. The goal is to be in harmony with all things, which means first being in harmony with oneself. Harmony is thought to neutralize problems and help one’s life to become beautiful. Good health makes it easier for all people to do their part in the universe, to serve others, and to fulfill their personal life visions.

Life is considered in all of its dualities: winter/summer, cold/hot, day/night, mind/body, spiritual/physical, work/play, and so on...

Monday, July 24, 2017 Life In Balance  No comments

Getting focused, organized and structured in a New Year is something we approach with great intentionality when we are working. We set our goals and make plans to achieve our goals. After retirement, however, many people drop the planning and goal setting at the beginning of a new year. The result is that they find themselves slouching into the year and wandering somewhat aimlessly from one interest to another.

How Do Chakras Affect Us?

For those who are interested in personal growth, evolution, spiritual awakening or enlightenment it is extremely helpful to have a basic understanding of the chakras. Chakra is the Western version of the Sanskrit ‘cakra,’ which means ‘wheel’ or ‘circle.’ Chakra is based on the idea that the energy of the body is centered through seven main points in the middle of the body that move in a circular pattern, creating the aura of the body. The journey of the spirit is a very personal one. Yet, at the same time, the soul travels a path of evolution that is universal. We can benefit from the experience and understanding gained by those who have walked the path before us. They represent stages in our development, various levels of consciousness and spiritual maturity...
