Answer Comes In A Dream, pt. 2

I wrote recently about a client who kept releasing on a major issue that he had been having with his dad. Finally, and quite unexpectedly, the answer came to him in the form of a very realistic dream. If you haven’t read it, it’s pretty fascinating, to say the least (read Answer Comes In A [more…]

Am I Qualified To Judge?

Things happen all the time that we don’t want to happen. Big things might include death, disease, divorce, injury, and job loss. Smaller things might include spilling the spaghetti sauce on the counter or being slightly late to an appointment. Humans are sponges from the time we come out of the womb, learning things all [more…]

Thanksgiving

I think it was literally within the last couple of years that I made the connection between Thanksgiving and giving thanks. Since I was born, I had always done the same thing on Thanksgiving – go to my aunt and uncle’s house with lots of family and eat a big turkey meal in the early [more…]

The Holidays

Welcome to another round of the holidays, folks! I recently had a client come for a pre-Thanksgiving tune up, and I have more who will be coming in for the post-Thanksgiving decompression.

Dealing With A**holes

A friend recently asked if I had ever written about how to deal with a**holes. Hey – her words, not mine. In the interest of cleaning up our language here at A Clean Mind, let’s call them AHs. There, that sounds much better. I’m not going to sugar coat it and say, “people who are [more…]

Venting

We’ve all experienced “venting,” both as the giver and as the receiver. Venting when someone is basically complaining about something in their life they’ don’t like. It can be pretty annoying. A little bit is fine, but the habitual venters need something very important – a quick education about what venting is and why they’re [more…]

Grief And Loss

A friend in her twenties is about to lose her step-mother, with whom she is very close, to cancer. The news of the cancer first came about several months ago, so it hasn’t been very long. Then yesterday the doctors said she only had a few days to live. My friend is having a tough [more…]

Should I Call Them Problems?

I’ve always said that I don’t really see problems as problems. I don’t really call them that. They aren’t fun, but they’re there, so we have to deal with them… only because they’re already there. So we might as well reframe them. I was going to write about this at some point, and then a [more…]

Answer Comes In A Dream

I talk a lot about how the fast way of handling our issues is to do inner work first (read Inner vs. Outer). Release those inner knots first and then do what needs to be done in the outer world after that. And always keep releasing as long as you need to. This is the [more…]

Religion 101

Today it’s time to talk about everybody’s favorite non-controversial topic, religion! Next we can talk about sex and politics… These are really just some very general thoughts about religion, but they’re pretty healthy to ponder. My take on the world’s main religions is that they were all started by someone who knew what was up. [more…]

All anybody really wants is peace. The good news is that peace can be learned. I’m serious. This should be taught in middle school, but it’s not. So I’m teaching it now.
