Are You Using Anger – or Is It Using You?

Fist Clenched in Anger

Aloha, Is it just me or does it seem like there are a lot of angry folks out there? Road rage, screaming politician pundits, feuding celebrities and domestic violence—it’s like everyone’s taking their cues from Big Time Wrestling, pounding their chests and looking for someone to slam around! My newest blog post for Psychology Today, […]

The Next Ten Years

Aloha, The condition of the human spirit is interesting right now. We are on a balance point between the “old” way of thinking and a “new” paradigm in consciousness.

“I really believe that all of us have a lot of darkness in our souls. Anger, rage, fear, sadness. I don’t think that’s only reserved for people who have horrible upbringings. I think it really exists and is part of the human condition. I think in the course of your life you figure out ways […]

But as Deepak Chopra points out: “Modern medicine, for all its advances, knows less than 10 percent of what your body knows instinctively.” I’ve studied and taught Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Huna for many years now. Though different in their approach, both […]

Is the Power of Your Mind Keeping You Sick?

Is the Power of Your Mind Making You Sick?

“The world sometimes feels like an insane asylum. You can decide whether you want to be an inmate or pick up your visitor’s badge. You can be in the world but not engage in the melodrama of it; you can become a spiritual being having a human experience thoroughly and fully.” Deepak Chopra Aloha, We […]

Has Debt Become Your Drug of Choice?

Upset Robed Woman Glaring At Her Many Credit Cards.

Aloha, When I’m teaching about prosperity and someone brings up the issue of debt, my answer is pretty blunt: In Western culture, spending more than you have is a desperate attempt to mask the pain of not living your life’s purpose. If you are living your life’s purpose, you don’t overspend and you don’t end […]

Aloha, I’m starting this year with an emphasis on fitness. Why? Well, having gone through a personal fitness transformation in the last several years myself, I’ve come to understand that being in great condition physically supports everything else in my life.
