Throughout history,

certain dates have marked

a significant shift in the way we perceive ourselves, each other and

our world. No date has been the cause of more speculation and concern than 2012. An entire industry has sprung up

around this singular event.

Books have been written, works hopes have been crafted and movements have been created to prepare us for what some call the Golden Age and  others call the End Times. Although this is no ordinary time, I do not perceive an Indiana Jones apocalyptic scenario in our  collective future. Instead:

An old paradigm is dying and a new paradigm of love, collaboration and unity is emerging.

What you are sensing—or feeling—is your intuition preparing you for one of the most fundamental shifts humanity has ever experienced. What we are facing is the end of a world that doesn’t work.

The old paradigm of human experience is being replaced with a new one.

The old operating system of fear, scarcity and competition is

being replaced with a new paradigm of love, collaboration and unity.

With this transformation, we move from a

planet divided by beliefs to one unified by the heart.

Do you struggle with your anger? Do you feel the need to control it when it arises, because if you don’t, you’re afraid it will control you?

It’s not the anger that’s getting in the way… It’s the need for control that’s preventing you from finding the freedom that’s available to you.

Explore control and why you feel the need to assert a level of control over anything…


I am saddened by the death of Robin Williams. I enjoyed watching him in so many movies. More than his comedic roles, though, it was his more serious performances that resonated made me love him.

Dead Poets Society is one of my favorite films of all time. His role in Good Will Hunting – playing the part of a mentor with a steadfast belief in the inherent genius of a disenfranchised young man – inspired me. In these roles, I feel as though I got to see Robin for who he truly was.

I believe Robin’s comedic brilliance was his coping mechanism- the way he tried to make sense of a world he fundamentally couldn’t conform to. For me, his huge heart and ability to inspire and uplift was actually his Soul Signature. Beneath the one-liners and witty repartee, he was a champion for the underprivileged; he helped those who had lost hope in themselves. (more…)

Nooyi was asked if she thought, in this day and age, that women could “have it all” and achieve the ever-elusive work/life balance. Her candid answer surprised the crowd. “I don’t think women can have it all,” she replied. “I just don’t think so. We pretend we have it all. We pretend we can have it all. My husband and I have been married for 34 years and have two daughters. And every day you have to make a decision about whether you are going to be a wife or a mother. In fact, many times during the day you have to make those decisions. We plan our lives meticulously so we can be decent parents. But if you ask our daughters, I’m not sure they will say that I’ve been a good mom. I’m not sure. And I try all kinds of coping mechanisms.” (more…)
