WHAT IS WELLNESS COACHING?
According to Wikipedia, Wellness Coaching is defined as "a process that facilitates healthy, sustainable behavior change by challenging a client to develop their inner wisdom, identify their values, and transform their goals into action. Wellness coaching draws on the principles from positive psychology and appreciative inquiry, and the practices of motivational interviewing and goal setting."
Wellness coaching is a path that leads you back to you, your essence and your sense of purpose in the world. When you believe in yourself, your connection with life becomes more present, vibrant and harmonious. You receive tools to enhance your daily activities and your ability to share your magnificent self with the world.
Your sessions may include setting goals and taking action to realize your dreams. As you move toward your brightest possible future, you will blossom and find joy in being alive.
The heart of wellness coaching is tuning into your inner self and embracing your magnificence by bringing spirit fully into being.
Coaching sessions are one hour in length. Frequency of sessions is determined by individual needs and goals.

The season of graduation ceremonies is upon us. These momentous occasions are engendered by those progressing from one life point to another. Seemingly academic in nature, graduations represent a passing of time, a maturing of self and the recognition of no turning back. There is much also to consider from a spiritual perspective. Here are four graduation gifts awaiting as part of this spiritual graduation journey.
Sharon’s spouse, Robert (Care Receiver), has been managing a depression diagnosis for the past five years. Initially, Sharon denied and put aside her personal needs to care for Robert and run the household. With each passing day, Sharon finds herself trapped in a “Love Jungle.”
Harry’s “Time Out” button in his head has been sending signals so he can ease up on the constant mental stresses causing his anxiety.

Let's examine common misconceptions and practices when seeking professional help. I’ve worked with clients who fell into these traps before they found and hired me.
We often hear the term “courage,” but in reality, what does it mean? Does it merely describe someone who is overzealous and likes to take major risks? Or is there more to it? Definitions imply that courageous souls face fears and overcome adversity while possessing specific traits like having a lot of nerve or brimming with excessive confidence. But what are courageous individuals really like on a day-to-day basis?
How do we stop the noise and tap into our dreams? We need to put down the heads and see a blank canvas with an endless array of color, images and sounds.
The overbearing ego assumes its formula for decision-making involves anxiety, tension and overwhelm. The cycle of insanity distances us from resolution and leads to despair, panic and uncertainty. By now, we may have determined this predictable outcome yields poor results and no reward. And yet here we are doing the same thing over and over again. Joy gives permission to exercise the best part of ourselves - our imagination.
There’s nothing like waking up - or going to bed - with a clear body, mind and spirit. Apply these Spring tips to remind you to appreciate Joy from the inside out. Invest wisely using an open mind and a willing heart.
Relinquishing the egos mighty hold on us is a choice. We are more than capable of walking over the ego line and into our beautiful minds. The mind partners with us to discover, expand and connect with our divine compass. Its only mission is to guide us to the truth and help us shine.
Years ago, a mentor advised me that my primary task was to pay attention to the good things happening all around me if I wanted to last.
Otherwise, she cautioned, it’s easy to fall into the trap of becoming “emotional shredded cardboard.” At the time, I was so young, that I was not even sure what she was trying to tell me.
She recommended a middle way, in which we resist choking off our natural empathy, and instead cultivate a rich inner life that is able to attend to, work with, and release the emotions that accompany our work.
As we wander through life's thicketed forest, we encounter over and over our mental, emotional and spiritual selves. Standing alone in the wild exposes us to shadowy perceptions capable of disorienting us. Our energy can becomes disturbed. We may attach ourselves to the disturbance. The phenomenon called "anxiety" is one such attachment. Anxiety erodes our strength and inner vitality.

Thanks to Apple, the “Me” movement is bigger than ever ... and growing. Gadgets, apps and social media drive greater focus on the almighty Me, Myself and I.

World empathy starts and ends with each one of us joining in the fight for clear and open communication.. When we have the right tools in place, we can talk about anything. When we have our hearts in the right place we can re-write history from a loving place.

Holidays can bring out the best - or worst in us. Amid commercials depicting cheery families dressed in matching pajamas, there is often a quiet melancholy that drifts into our psyches.

Before long we’ll be running through store aisles and cruising online past midnight for "perfect gifts" for loved ones. The season of giving has been replaced by the season of spending. Retailers will do whatever it takes to get their hungry hands on our open wallets.
