Some Non-negotiables in Business and Life

Some Non-negotiables in Business and Life

I love listening to motivational speakers who, like myself, are committed to empowering others. We are sharing our life skills to fill the holes which people keep falling into and remain stuck in.

Seeing The Gifts In Daily Events

I’d like to say that each one of us could start looking at our lives as a story and check out its highlights and create more, and its lowlights and see what we have learned from them.

Climbing the Author Ladder

I was beside myself with joy and gratitude because this was yet another example of how the Law of Attraction comes through when you know how to work it. In my case I simply invite the unexpected and then welcome it with open arms. I’m usually very selective about what I invite – because that’s what I manifest. What we focus our energy on often shows up in our lives, positive or negative. So watch your thoughts!

Empower Yourself

I would like to say that as a transformational coach I meet many people who feel lost and are overwhelmed by the things that aren’t working in their lives. My advice to them is the same as Anita’s: love and appreciate yourself unreservedly. Count your gifts and your blessings. It may be hard at first but if you persist, you may see positive changes in your health and your environment.

Living Authentically

Living Authentically

Showing up as authentic requires courage and a willingness to make oneself vulnerable. It means letting our real selves be seen, almost like taking our psychological clothes off in public. People who practice authenticity create huge benefits for themselves and build more profound connections with others.

Creating Future Memories

Creating Future Memories

One of my favourite changemakers is Dr. Joe Dispenza because his life’s purpose is to empower people to use their innate energies to heal themselves. He proposes that when the body can create an illness, it can also heal it. His results and testimonials are astounding and very encouraging. People who use his information or attend his workshops all over the world frequently heal themselves of the most frightening illnesses.

Meditation allows us to relax inside. It puts us into a state of calmness where we acknowledge the appearing thoughts but do not dwell on them. Once we are in a suggestible state, we can use our visualization skills to create images of what it would feel like to have vibrant health, better finances, more loving relationships, and so on.

Why are Podcasts so Popular?

Why are Podcasts so Popular?

Zoe Duff of Feilidh Publishing invited me as her guest on the podcast because she had read my book and had been touched by it. She felt its message needed to reach other people so they could learn from it and feel inspired by my dealing with adversity. At present, many folks find themselves in frustrating or discouraging situations and have no life skills to cope with them. I believe that’s one of the reasons why there has been such a rise in mental health issues.

I’m Back!

I’m Back!

It’s been a while since I had time to contribute to Tidechange. So many amazing people and events have shown up in my life allowing me to use my skills and talents to make a difference. As I’m contemplating taking a break to catch my breath, I know that in the background Life is creating new scenarios to keep me engaged.

Making Your Dreams Come True

Making Your Dreams Come True

What my mature students taught me was that people have dreams at all ages. My teenage students at school were full of them. How I would love to have the opportunity to coach them, now that I’m not on staff anymore. Maybe I’ll make this into another dream…

New Year’s Resolutions Anyone?

New Year’s Resolutions Anyone?

When I went through my DreamBuilder training, I found out why I had failed so many times in the past: I had tried to approach my dreams with willpower – which requires a lot of energy. Since energy fluctuates through the day, I often didn’t have enough left over to use for my dream. I had ‘decision fatigue’.

A Cornucopia Of Gifts For Me

A Cornucopia Of Gifts For Me

I can say that this has been a most unusual but successful year. However, if sometimes my wishes don’t get fulfilled, it’s for inner growth. I follow the adage: if it works out, it’s Life’s direction; if it doesn’t, it’s Life’s protection. To this effect I wish all my readers a Very Happy and Healthy New Year!

Seeing The Event Through A New Immigrant’s Eyes

In October of 1977 I set foot on Canadian soil as a landed immigrant. I had left my native Bavaria to start a new life with my husband who was from Victoria. Since I had studied English at university I communicated with ease. What I was unaware of, though, were the cultural differences which would often throw me for a loop because I was still too entrenched in my own old-world values and ways of thinking. For some immigrants this experience can be quite challenging; it’s called ‘culture shock’.

Of Forgeries, Written Threats, and Poison Pen Letters

Questioned Documents Examination requires a keen eye for details and differences where letter formations, spacing, slant, pressure, size, baselines, and idiosyncratic aspects are concerned. The latter are often a sure giveaway that the writing has been penned by the same author – or not. In order to come to a conclusion, samples for comparison are needed.

The Writing is on the Wall

Few people know that handwriting is more than a means of communication. It’s actually a graphic picture of processes going on in the brain. You may have noticed how your writing has changed over the years or how it looked different when you were going through a challenging time.
