If You’re Going Through Hell, Keep Going

I keep a quote from Winston Churchill on my desk.  It’s carved into a block of metal and topped with a little metal knight.  It says, If you’re going through hell, keep going. It’s a statement worth remembering and worth sharing—for more than one reason. First, the obvious:  Giving up is never the right option.  […]

An Instant (well, kind of) Antidote to Hating Anyone

There’s a lot of hate out there today.  I don’t need to tell you where.  You see it and you sense it. We’re all vulnerable to feeling hatred, by the way—or something bordering on it.  Almost anyone can be wronged profoundly enough to feel it.  Almost anyone can witness wrongdoing to others enough to feel […]

Can I Really Believe That “Voice” Telling Me I Have a Destiny?

I have worked with many clients who aren’t at all sure what their calling is.  Often, we find the answer by looking at parts of their early life stories that they have “buried.” Maybe a sincere interest that deserves to be resurrected was initially ridiculed or simply not supported by others.  Maybe a deep desire […]

The Most Powerful People in the World

The most powerful people in the world at this gut-wrenching time in our history may not be the President of the United States or politicians on either side of the aisle. The most powerful people in the world may be the families of George Floyd and Derek Chauvin.  They don’t need politicians or police or […]

BECOMING YOUR TRUE SELF IS A PURE FORM OF PRAYER

God (or the Universe, if you prefer) created you for a particular journey, with a unique purpose and destiny in this life.  It is encoded not only in the double helix of your DNA, but in the infinite helix of your soul.  That is why becoming your true self—and manifesting the treasures that flow from […]

Commit to Living Your Most Powerful Life This Memorial Day

Today, as America remembers its fallen soldiers, who died defending liberty, I can’t help thinking that they died in service to the opportunity each and every one of us has to become SELF-actualized.  Without liberty, our ideals and ideas and inspirations would be choked off; we couldn’t become the people we were meant—by God or […]

How Long Should it Take to Become YourSELF?

All of us are operating on a daily basis at some distance from the core and most powerful parts of ourselves.  As I have pointed out before, life events (including troubling ones early in life and more recently) spawn counterproductive patterns of thought, emotion and behavior that we need to identify—partly through guided introspection—and to […]

There is Always a Silver Lining ~ Kathryn O’Brien

The world has been filled with terrible events. Arguably, Coronavirus has had devastating effects on everyone, regardless of faith, socioeconomic status or age. It does not discriminate. Even those imprisoned have had to face new risks and challenges. We have been shown in dramatic fashion that, in some ways, we do not have complete control […]

EXPECT GREAT THINGS FROM GENERATION CORONA

We are in the midst of a pandemic that is costing our nation tens of thousands of lives and which has devastated our economy.  What possible silver lining could there be?  Is it impolitic to even suggest one, even as we fight a war against Coronavirus?  I believe it is not only permissible, but helpful, […]

When Your Life Story Includes Painful Chapters, Keep “Writing”

Only when it comes to living our lives do we sometimes believe the narrative has veered into intractable darkness.  We can be tempted to put down our metaphorical pens because we feel we no longer have the power to “write” chapters of future success, of redemption, of forgiveness, of healing. Nothing could be further from […]
