When Camus talked about the invincible summer he was referring to that indomitable spirit, the strength we find when dig deep within. He went on to say that no matter how the world pushes against him, there's something stronger pushing right back. I work with people in some of their hardest times, . . .
There's a hefty discount in this post! And it's open to anyone anywhere in the world. That's right. Other countries, too! Expires Sunday. There's nothing mysterious at all about a past life regression. No magic. Nothing occult. You don't even have to believe in reincarnation to get something from a . . .
Here's a mental diet that could very well change your life. Simply reject any negative thought as soon as it appears. Don't let it take root. Just let it go as soon as it comes up. Gone. Try it for a month. Just 30 days. Regardless of your situation. It's life affirming. And could be life . . .
Try, if you can, to put yourself in the shoes of someone going through treatment. Hard to do, right? If you haven't been through treatment or accompanied a loved one to an infusion center, for example, it might be hard to understand.

Nothing gets in the way of our pets seeing us at our core. Knowing us. Knowing exactly who we are. Riley . . .
Few things are more frustrating, but this is a tried and true technique for insomnia. I know, because I've used it. The idea of being aware of your breath comes out of meditation and counting exhales instead of inhales takes you out of what you'd normally do. It's not intuitive to count out-breaths . . .

Part of it is that we know we'll feel it one day for someone we love--or we've already felt it--and that reminder can be painful. Well-meaning friends and relatives can often trip on themselves when trying to . . .
Do we choose? Years ago when I first heard the concept that we choose our family, I was horrified. "No way!" I thought. And then never gave it another thought. Why should I have? It isn't true, I thought. It's B.S. Until years later, when my spiritual path became clearer. Or, shall I say, my . . .
