Steer, Not Control

Another short post to share intuitive guidance that came through me this morning. This message is for anyone who has been waiting for something for extended periods of time and feels that you have met your end of the bargain and done all the “right things.” Yet, it still eludes you, and you are frustrated […]

Compassion

This morning, I did my visioning practice to tune into guidance for what to remember this week. I’m still in the midst of navigating a rather bumpy segment of my journey and finding myself sorely disappointed with how often I slip into fear and ego, getting easily agitated and ready to snap at anyone for […]

New Year’s Intentions

Here comes the sunset of one year and the dawning of another. What’s your practice for releasing the old and embracing the new? I don’t set new year’s resolutions, as they don’t work. Instead, I like to review the past year and vision for the new year. In a nutshell, 2013 is ending in a […]

Listen With Heart

“I did everything but listen, really listen,” says Michael to his wife, Alice. That’s a defining line at the end of the movie, When a Man Loves a Woman, a movie about a couple nearly torn apart permanently by alcoholism but who finds their way back to each other. In Alice’s recovery from alcoholism, she […]

Gratitude is Love

In the U.S., we celebrate Thanksgiving Day this Thursday. As a naturalized American, I’ve come to embrace Thanksgiving as one of the most meaningful traditions of my adopted home country. I’ll never forget my first Thanksgiving. I was a 16-year-old homesick Freshman at Maui Community College. My Economics professor invited a group of us—all international […]

How Does Life Love You?

I’m drafting this week’s post while flying home, after attending Dr. Robert Holden’s weekend Loveability program in New York based on his book with the same title, which I’ve written about in a few of my previous posts. I’m also writing through tears from feeling profoundly moved by what has been stirred within me just […]

Can Competitiveness Be Good?

Last week, I played a satisfying competitive tennis match. My partner and I won narrowly in a third-set tiebreak, which was described by a teammate watching us as a nail-biter till the very end. It very much felt that way to the two of us on the court. Until the deciding point, the match really […]

Your Gift to the World

Have you ever asked yourself what gifts are yours to share with the world? What’s your answer? Has it changed over the years, as you change, grow and evolve? Over the years, through classes and programs taken, books read, as well as soul-searching contemplations and reflections undertaken, variations of this question had come up. By […]

No Justification Needed

A few months ago, I wrote about what vulnerability is and that to be vulnerable is to remember Love—which is our nature—and to choose it over fear—which is learned. Again, to quote Marianne Williamson from her book, A Return to Love: Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual […]

Love is the Answer

Every act of unkindness is a cry for help, a cry for love. They don’t know what they’re doing. Love them without needing to condone their behavior. See the truth of who they are. Send them love. The above came as part of the guidance I received this past Sunday morning, when I did my […]
