You can heal your life – Louise Hay’s Affirmations

Louise Hay and affirmations are a big part of our family’s life now. My corporate brain has a hard time explaining this to others because it sounds hokey. But they work! When I first created CTU, affirmations and “I” statements were seen in the mainstream market as selfish / self indulgent. Now, I think more and more people understand the power they have for healing, self empowerment and peace. I’ve used them for years in my health healing but it was only recently I started using them with the kids. Last year our son started getting hives and we did…

Bringing the Family to the Table

I have been taking an incredible online course with Brene Brown on imperfect parenting. We spent this snowy Sunday bringing the family to the table to work on how to create a place,home & family where the kids felt like they belonged. It is amazing what kids (mine are 8&9) shared about how they see themselves in the world. And some of their real struggles even at such a young age. We worked on 2 projects today from Lesson 1 – what it means to belong in our family & what does love look like in action. Not just words…

April 2014 – Cultivating Joy, Dreams & Learning Lessons from Others

My word for this year is presence… being present in what I do. LOVE this pic of landing in Victoria. Amazingly after only being in the North for 5 years, I have already forgotten that other parts of the world are not under a blanket of snow this time of year. I loved getting away for both the energy shift, but also to remind myself to be present. This picture was taken just outside my beautiful hotel. Love the detail, the color and how it wasn’t the center piece (just one of many rings around the many trees in front…

2012 – Be not afraid, You Were Born for This!

Do you have rituals that you do every New Year’s? Perhaps choosing a word or a phrase to focus on for the year to come? Or perhaps setting goals or resolutions. For me, I love ending my year with Dr. Wayne Dyer’s Power of Intention. It has been about 7 years since I started this. This year, like past years, I have been amazed at the new ‘aha’s’ I get from this audio.  (I personally enjoy the CD the best, although I do have the book and DVD). Here’s my favorite this year:

Create More Moments – Waiting at the Hospital

Today is the first day back to our normal routine. Just over a week ago my little girl ended up in the hospital after getting a concussion. It is hard to see why things happen… and as a mom, I would love to be able to erase the ringing “bang” sound of her head hitting the metal slide from my ears. I often try to find the silver lining in things. Although it is a great way to shift the energy, I have to admit, I think I can easily send myself batty trying to be positive and find the…

A World of Abundance – You can have BOTH Cookies!

It was treat time in my house and I said to my kids, do you want a chocolate cookie or a vanilla cookie? (It is girl guide cookie season in town!). My son who is 3, very analytical and cautious looked very pensively and said, “Um, um, um… ” I could tell he was trying hard not to make the wrong decision.
