Loosing our ability to be face-to-face

October 5, 2010

Communication has been on the top list of issues in organizations for year and a constant challenge for parents. What is making it worse? Technology!

With instant gratification that comes with technology, we are spending less and less time ACTUALLY talking to each other (more…)

L-E-A-D goes International

March 16, 2010

Dreams do come true!  Taking LEAD international has been a vision for about 3 years and it has become a reality with the assistance and support of a dear friend that lives in Istanbul, Turkey!

My friend Gila and I dreamt of offering LEAD workshops in her country from the first time she experienced Leading and Living Your Vision workshop in March 2007.   We talked, planned, and put off the vision for one reason or another when the universe opened up and said “The time is NOW!”   (more…)

Paying it forward with Gratitude

January 7, 2010

I wonder how many people took to heart my November message about Gratitude?  When you put something out to the universe rarely do you really know how it perceived, its impact anyone or if anyone actually read what you wrote!  On a rare occasion, someone might actually tells you of your impact and how it effected their life.

My rare occasion occurred when I visited my eye doctor.  He was so excited to tell me how he took my message of gratitude to heart and challenged not only his children but his church as well.   (more…)

Blessings

December 23, 2009

As we celebrate the beauty of the holiday and bring 2009 to a close, I encourage you to embrace the joys of the year, release the wounds of the past to the universe for healing, and open your arms wide to happiness and abundance in the New Year.

I share with you the words of “The Greatest Gifts” with the desire for you to embrace and allow them to be alive in you now and throughout the New Year.

May we break boundaries, tear down walls, and build on the foundation of goodness inside each of us.

 

May we look past differences, gain understanding, and embrace acceptance. (more…)

Gratitude – pass it on

November 24, 2009

Thanksgiving provides the perfect time to reflect and acknowledge the many blessings in our lives so we can continue to manifest more of them. Why not  reserve more than one day a year to recognize what is important to you?  Stop right now and make a date with yourself 4 times a year to reflect on the blessings in your life. Schedule a date for yourself in your Blackberry, Outlook, I-Phone, paper calendar (yes, people  still use the good old standby paper method) or what ever system you use and give yourself 5 minutes 4 times a year to take stock of what’s important to you.   Heck, go ahead, challenge yourself to do it more than 4 times a year! Or what if instead of keeping it to yourself, you TOLD people that you were grateful for them, or something they did right when they did it? What difference would it make in you, your family, friends, employees, and co-workers, gosh what might be different with each person you touch?    (more…)

Those of us who introduce horses to people through Equine Assisted Learning, Coaching, Leadership, workshops or Therapy know the changes and empowerment people experience in the presence of these magnificent animals. (more…)

What's holding you back?

September 1, 2009

I’ve heard many times from friends, family and clients that they wish they could change.  My response to all of them is “What’s holding you back?”  Well, when I’m talking with friends and family I try not to put on my “coaching hat,” but with clients that’s what they want from me.  To push them into thinking differently and explore what is holding them back from changing, getting more out of their lives, sorting out their dreams and goals, pushing them into developing an action plan, supporting behavioral changes, and being with them as they move their goals into reality.

Visiting the Buffalo

August 7, 2009

We have been welcomed back to do a 2-day Women’s Leadership retreat for a client.  Last year we had a phenomenal time with these women exploring leadership with a herd of horses.  They walked away with many individual and collective lessons about themselves, how they show up in their leadership roles and in their relationships, the impact of their feelings on their actions, and a new awareness of how to utilize themselves in accomplishing their goals and dreams.   

The location for the Leadership retreat this year will be in Freemont Indiana at Wild Winds Buffalo Preserve.  I had the pleasure to visit Wild Winds last week with my mother and experience the beauty of this place.  It sets on 400+ acres of sacred land with over 200 head of buffalo, with many new born calves frolicking around their mothers and 15 horses.   (more…)

Birthing the Rattles

July 28, 2009

In preparation for birthing my rattles, my spiritual guidance surrounded me.  I had been given the vision of birthing the rattles during a sacred fire ceremony which would take place with a circle of women whom I’d been doing shamanic journeys with for 5 weeks.

As I gathered wood for our fire ceremony I received several messages (I’ve heard some people do not trust in what they hear for they believe it is themselves talking or something their mind makes up.  For me and many people, it is the voice of creator, spirit, God, what ever you choose to call a Higher Power.  I trust the voice I hear to guide my journey in life).  (more…)
