Are you a worrier? Do you constantly go over every “what if” possible? Does your mind conjure horrible images of what may or may not happen? When you try to make a decision, do worries freeze you in your tracks? If so, the following tips will help you to stop worrying and start living again. You’ll be able to take action, solve problems, make better decisions and finally relax.
When you worry your body pumps out stress hormones by the bucketful. Instead of sitting and thinking about what’s bothering you, get up and do something. Whether you can actually take action toward solving the problem you’re worrying about or just need to get your mind off of worrying in general, movement helps to release pent-up energy and funnel it in another direction. Exercise, do a load of laundry or...Read More

There have been times in my life when this has been too true, sometimes to my own detriment, because I have ignored my own authentic needs and pushed harder and faster to achieve what I thought I needed to achieve. I have a large body of students that I guide on their self-development journey and I take that responsibility & joy to heart and always work for their highest will and good. It’s not because I’m a guru or saint, I’m not, I’m way to human for that (even though a saint is just a sinner who never gave up) I’m on the path like everyone else and sometimes I stumble and fall. I have learnt (through extensive training) to train my ego to go into service to my soul and in doing so have an infinite resource of patience,...Read More

First of all, I would like to thank Joanne for this question and I will try to answer it to the best of my ability.
It is difficult not to take this behaviour to heart especially when it comes from a loved one, close friend or associate. This behaviour tends to come from not being able to see beyond self at any one given time, people get stuck in what they think are their pressing needs and the drive to fulfil those needs takes precedence over everything else. At that moment they cannot see the big picture or have a real problem seeing the situation from anyone else point of view (they are stuck in their own delusions/story and unfortunately ego gone crazy). It maybe when someone thinks they are being asked to step up to the plate and change a behaviour which might take them out of their comfort zone, or they feel they...Read More

Do you have a big goal you want to achieve?
This may include losing weight, getting out of debt, starting a relationship or developing your spiritual life.
If it is a big goal, it will likely require consistent action on a daily basis to see the goal achieved.
"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out."
For example, to achieve a goal of losing weight, you need to eat healthy food EVERY DAY and exercise CONSISTENTLY in order to reach your goal weight. No matter how great the diet is, if you don’t stick to it, it won’t work. Similarly, for a goal of running a marathon you need to train over a period of months before you can realise your goal.
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." Aristotle
As Aristotle puts it, we are what we...Read More
Posted on Fri, 3 August 2018Do you increasingly feel at the mercy of inner and outer conflicts that you believe are beyond your understanding or control? Whether you are aware of it or not, the various pressures imposed by your home and work environments take a daily toll on your physical and emotional well-being. When these are accompanied by low self-esteem, avoiding difficulties, or denial that there are any problems, the consequences can be very damaging to your relationships, to work, and, most importantly, to yourself. Your distress or discomfort may not just manifest itself in feelings of victimization and powerlessness, however unwanted habits and addictions are also a strong signal to yourself and others that all is not well. Taking control of your life means deciding that you are going to be the "driver" and not simply a "passenger," and taking full...Read More
