The upgrade is called Pure Speech (Conscious Language)

Posted by on Sep 2, 2013 in BLOG

Twenty plus years ago I was introduced to Robert Tennyson Stevens, Mastery Systems, and Language of Mastery. I became a Language of Mastery instructor and have been teaching Conscious Language ever since. I am continuously amazed by how effectively my life changes simply by speaking in direct, specific, life-affirming words. What follows is excerpted from […]

Creating Good Vibes

Posted by on Aug 26, 2013 in BLOG

The other day I had a wonderful visit with Carole Perez Montanari, a birth and postpartum doula. Birth doulas support expectant women and their partners and families with the emotional and physical aspects of childbirth. Postpartum doulas serve and support after childbirth. We were discussing the importance of conscious language in our lives (Carole is […]

Life is a Spiral

Posted by on Aug 19, 2013 in BLOG

Life is linear. We are born, we grow, and we die. We think sequentially, with logical reasoning: one-two-three-four. This is masculine, straight line (think penis), linear thinking. We move ahead or we have a setback. Two steps forward, one step back, as the saying goes. Life is circular. The seasons of the earth go around […]

Think And Speak In Conscious, Life Affirming Language

Posted by on Aug 13, 2013 in BLOG

David Brooks, the New York Times columnist, recently observed “… they (men) find themselves in a world that values expressiveness, interpersonal ease, vulnerability and the cooperative virtues.” I think his observation is beautifully stated. It’s called being conscious, and the qualities mentioned must be shared by men and women alike.” Let’s take them one by […]

Why Don’t I Know What I Want (and How to Find Out)

Actually Create Your Heart’s Desires It’s simple: · Your conscious mind thinks, and impresses its thoughts upon your subconscious mind. · Your subconscious mind receives whatever has been impressed upon it by your (or anyone else’s!) conscious mind and expresses out what has been impressed upon it.

Sympathy, compassion, and empathy all have to do with connection. Sympathy is about acknowledging another person’s emotional pain and providing comfort and assurance. Compassion is caring about the other free of any need to “fix” or “save” the person. Empathy is understanding what others are feeling because you have experienced it yourself and can put […]

Let’s Talk About Empathy This Week, Part 1

Posted by on Jul 17, 2013 in BLOG

As I was considering my blog post this week, I came across the words of the famed psychologist (and hero of mine) Carl Rogers. He describes empathy so well and so precisely, I was inspired to edit and share his words with you directly. Carl Rogers wrote that empathy is a process rather than a […]

Let’s Talk About L— This Week

Posted by on Jul 11, 2013 in BLOG

L— is an unspeakable Universal essence and is the core vibration of each of us. Any love we can speak is not love. Love we speak may be hope, sympathy/reassurance, or even gratitude, but not L—. Hope: Often the love we express is “hope”; “I love you” with a slight ? at the end of […]

From Independence to Interdependence

Posted by on Jul 4, 2013 in BLOG

My son Dhruva and I were having a discussion a while back about co-dependence and independence and the flaws of each. Co-dependence, of course, is when I need you to be “okay” – happy – in order for me to be “okay” – happy. If I am “wired” with this false belief, than my well […]

When you use your mind and your words indiscriminately…

Posted by on Mar 5, 2013 in BLOG

When you use your mind and your words indiscriminately, you create a life of indiscriminate experiences and events and you are at the mercy of your unconscious thinking and your unconscious words.
