Did you know that desire is what activates your imagination? Your imagination is how your bring it into the world... make it come true. But how do we get guidance to follow the right desire? It is interesting to take a look at the word desire which means “a specific kind of longing. It is our ‘ultimate concern’ and contains insight into what we are most passionate about (remembering that the Latin root of passion [passio] = to suffer.” But this makes sense if we view our challenges as the place from which we grow.
Examining the root of word desire is: “wish,...
Have you ever wondered why you were/ are attracted to certain people? Have you ever been caught in the paradox of repeating relationship patterns that do not work? If so you are not alone. Based on what I have studied, I think it is fair to say we make our relationship choices unconsciously.
Why would that be so? We are drawn to people who represent a mirror of our childhood wounds, unresolved issues we have with our parents in the hope that we can finally find in this person what it is we never got in childhood. The problem is we do this unconsciously, without being aware this may be going...
Poor communication skills is the number one reason relationships do not work. Being prone to angry outbursts and talking to people in a disparaging way catches up with you in the long run. What can you do? Start with something called awareness.
Recently, the Washington...

I like to look at the root meaning or words to understand the true meaning. Lets take psychology which is a combination of psyche and logos. Psyche is more than the conscious mind, it has been defined as soul or spirit. Logos is the word or meaning. Psychology then originally meant the study of the meaning or word or the soul. Depth implies illumination of that which is not visible. You could say the unconscious is not visible but the more it is made conscious, the more we are operating from a place of self-knowledge which I believe is the point of life...to understand and make sense or meaning...
Self-knowledge is one of the most valuable pursuits in life. One of the questions I believe we are all longing to know and understand is what is my calling? Some people misunderstand this to be their vocation or work. I prefer to call it your life work… the work you need to do to evolve as a person.
I found valuable answers to this question by my study of Western astrology. To get insight into one’s calling; you take a look at the placement of what is called the North Node. Opposite to that is the South Node which identifies the life area’s with...

Unlock the secret to creativity and innovation: a depth perspective leads to new way of seeing
Innovations are not due to luck or chance. It’s about solving a problem using a new or fresh perspective that is insight driven. Creativity is “the ability to imagine what has never existed” or makes new connections between old ideas that have never been put together in that way.
Because we do not understand creativity we associate it with an outside force, higher power coming from outside you…actually it is a higher power but it’s within you.
Once you understand how creativity works...

To this day, it is not completely understood why it is that we dream. There is consensus, however, that without dreams we suffer both physically and psychologically. Many mental illnesses are considered to go along with with sleep irregularities, because poor sleep compromises the dream state. The brain is wired to dream, and the correlation between lack of dreaming, disturbed dreaming, and mental illness is very high. “Insomnia and depression are so strongly linked, some experts believe they are flips sides of the same disorder” (Naiman, 2011, para. 2).
There is also no consensus...
In a recent article in The New York Times Jane Brody discussed the merits of being an optimist. Seeing the glass as being half full as opposed to half empty is very much a function of how you see it. An important distinction was made between being an optimist and two other character traits that complement optimism: persistence and what is called motivation (not giving up).
This was found in a research study by...
