Do you feel trapped? Like totally trapped?
Maybe trapped in your past?
Or trapped in your circumstances?
Perhaps trapped in other people’s expectations?
Or trapped in your personal limitations and fears?
Do you feel like no one understands you?
Then today’s 7-minute therapy session is for you.
Let me introduce Brendon Burchard, who after surviving a near-fatal accident, developed his core teaching questions:

Therapy… What comes to your mind when you say this word?
For me personally, it is firmly associated with the word ‘years’.
As in years of therapy!
Somehow, while our modern world has managed to get faster and faster, the duration of therapeutic interventions has managed to stretch and keeps stretching…
I don’t know about you, but it does not seem right to me! Continue Reading »
Let me get it clear from the very start. Wearing sunglasses and sunblock does not bring on depression!
However, when you equip yourself with a pair of shades and choose to splodge some sunblock over your skin, you are doing something that might affect your health and your mood in a very profound way. Continue Reading »
So, you’ve opened this blog post and found a rather poor photograph and half a page of solid, black nothingness. There is a point to this, and it’s about finding the light at the end of a long, black tunnel. Allow me to explain.
I was in my home city of York, stuck in traffic and feeling sorry for myself. I’d just had the latest of three disappointments in as many weeks and was wondering if I could pick myself up enough to be a cheery presence at the leaving do I was on my way to.
Pondering these rather gloomy, negative thoughts and staring straight ahead at the back of a car I’d been looking at for nearly half an hour, I suddenly realised I was beneath an arch – Micklegate Bar – and there was literally light at the end of the tunnel. The unexciting image you can see above is that light.
I scrambled for my phone in an attempt to take a photo before the traffic began to move. I must have lurched as I took the photo, and found I’d taken a blurred, wonky photo of a ‘keep left’ sign. I tried again, and the traffic lights obligingly stayed red, as you can see from the resulting image.
The view you’ve just been looking at inspired me. I know it doesn’t look very inspiring, but to me it was a revelation and it changed my mood completely. Continue Reading »
Autumn is here. The leaves begin to change colour and fall. Nature is performing its ‘Let it go!’ dance once again!
A few more weeks and all the deciduous trees will look pretty much the same, revealing their solid and beautiful structure that we can all admire on a cold and misty day.
It’s seems like the trees need to let go of all the weight they can before the heavy snow and winds hit their magnificent crowns.
The trees have the inner wisdom of adapting themselves to a new season. They don’t resist it!
They have the immense trust to let go easily and effortlessly and just rest, rest, rest, consolidating their strength, until a new powerful transition and transformation takes place in the spring.
Why not be in alignment with Mother Nature and release some thoughts that bring you suffering and prevent you from recovery?
Take a mindful walk in nature this week. Observe the changes. Get inspired by the powerful and effortless transformations and renewals that are taking place around you. Continue Reading »
