I believe in synchronicity it is always showing me what is next. Earlier today I was listening to the founder of Omega Institute speak about the “time poverty” we are all experiencing. Too busy to cook, too busy to sit down and eat, too busy to sleep, over committed, exhausted, but too tired to sleep. Not a great picture. Then about an hour later I was speaking with Elissa at Fresh Picks and she was saying some of the biggest issues people have with buying produce is that they end up throwing it away, “so why buy it”, then it seems to me the thinking leads to…fast food to the rescue!
I like this concept of “time poverty”, it speaks to the larger concern. Continue reading
Does your eating or weight concerns effect your relationships? One week ago a relationship expert contacted me regarding the work I am doing and I began thinking of the correlation between food & relationships, and the connection in my life.
When I was overly invested in my need to change my body, lose weight, control my food I was also struggling in relationships. Continue reading

The art of forgiveness is a spiritual practice ~ many spiritual truths teach it holds the key to happiness. I have been exploring how to bring more of it into my life. I find when I am exploring a topic it begins to show up in multiple ways in my life. Have you noticed how that is? For example, if you are looking to purchase a specific vehicle you keep seeing it every where you go? Or if a situation happens to you and you begin to talk about it, you find others have experienced it too. Suddenly, it becomes available to examine. Forgiveness is for the big things but also for the daily small things. Continue reading
I was thinking about Ganesh, the first time I was given a Ganesha I was doing yoga in Vermont at this lovely artisans home, her gift to me was a print of Ganesha, then when I was working on romance in my life Ganesh came to me as the vehicle that could be a reminder of removing what stood in my way. Then another time I was generously gifted a wooden Ganesh from my clients travels in India, it sits in my car, a daily reminder, if I think I can rush and get somewhere, then really I may want to think again… I seem to know something about obstacles, the universe generously, patiently, reminds me there are ways out of them. Ganesh is considered the god of wisdom and learning, as well as the remover of obstacles, and consequently the sign of auspiciousness.
In working with clients I am always aware that success for them is dependent on how willing they are to give up or move beyond their obstacles. Continue reading
What if you committed the next 30 days to only making food and life stlye choices that were life affirming, would that change your life?
I am interested in supporting healthy-eating/living and it has occurred to me, how powerful 30 days can be ~ I am reminded of the power our daily choices have. From what I know about my self and from working with clients, I see how easy it is to go unconscious around food, and living, especially around “special events”, like the holidays, or birthdays, office functions, anniversaries, exciting news, life changes… life!
But, what if you had a commitment; Continue reading
