The Power of Not Knowing

I am going to go ahead and say it right now - I am a know it all.

As a kid, I can remember getting scolded when I didn’t know the answer to a question and feeling like I was not smart. At some point, l decided I had better have an answer when asked any question and many times my answers were based on what I had heard someone else say.

Unfortunately, having to have an answer for everything followed me into adulthood and it hasn’t served me well, because the truth is I do not know everything.

Holding onto our beliefs, views, and perceptions is natural for human beings. After all, our opinions are ingrained into us from the very day we are born and some argue even while we are in the womb.

Many of our convictions are handed down from our family, teachers and community leaders that we admire and trust.

Why would or should we question those who have taught us from birth --  then again why shouldn’t we?

When we hold onto the I know attitude we shut ourselves...

Let's Marie Kondo our lives: Give Up What You Must

By now I’m sure you heard the buzz around Marie Kondo. “Who is this woman and what in the world does she do?” you may have thought to yourself.  Let me break it down for you: Marie Kondo is an author and professional organizer who now has a Netflix show dedicated to organizing people’s homes.

I’ve seen it, I loved it, and I’m not going to lie- I cried during the first episode. Marie, because in my mind we are on a first name basis, motivates all of her clients to organize their homes by “sparking joy”.

Can giving things up really spark joy?

YES. The answer is yes. I used Marie’s methods on my dresser drawers to give up clothes, my closet to give up shoes, our kitchen to give up old dishes, pans, etc. I even found my husband using her methods on his (tiny) side of the closet.

Giving up all of these things that no longer served a purpose in my life was like lifting a weight off my shoulders.

All off these physical items:...

The Flip Side Of Focus: Give It Up To Get Free

Time for a pop quiz!
Who remembers what the studio theme was at Yoga One in January?
Don’t worry, you all get an A and the grades don’t matter anyway.

That’s right, Drishti!

Drishti is the beginning of the journey into power. It’s when you set your sight on something. It’s when you focus from the wide angle of your life to just one direction.

This is a moment of choice because as soon as you choose to focus on one thing, you have to give up putting your attention on all of the other things. This is the flip side of focus. 

Inherent in putting your attention on one thing is giving up the energy we contribute to other things.

This works at all levels. Physically we can only be in one place at one time, and while some of us may be able to pat our heads and rub our bellies at the same time, mostly we can only do one real thing in any given moment.

On the mental and emotional level, it’s similar. Thoughts and emotions can move much faster than...

The Tale Of Too Many Tabs

I am a wife of nearly 16 years, a mom, and a leader of a powerful team of humans.

Like many of you, at any given time it seems like I can be managing homework, responding to an issue at work, thinking about what's for dinner and ordering toilet paper on Amazon to be delivered today, because we're out.  

Life is moving quickly. There are many competing interests for my attention and focus.

What if it didn't have to be this way all the time?  

I'm a teacher and student of Baptiste Power Yoga and the first pillar of the practice is drishti.

Drishti is one's gaze or where you set your eyes in a pose. Drishti both on and off the mat gives you a place to focus your attention.  It's the yoga practice and life practice of doing one thing at a time.  

 I've been known to operate my shiny MacBook Air with multiple browser windows open at a time.  

Let me be clear when I say multiple, I mean upward of 20 tabs at one time. It's no wonder I begin to get...

Shift your drishti and receive a miracle.

Uncategorized Jan 29, 2019

Has your boss ever asked you to do something that you didn't want to do - like write a blog post?

My boss did just that, and my response to that request was, "I am the numbers person. I don't write blogs."

Yet, here I sit typing a blog post and you are reading it.

I did not have my attention on writing and I was extremely resistant to the task for weeks. I worked on payroll, budgets, and property tax listings which are all important duties I am responsible for. What it took for me to sit down and start typing was shifting my perspective.

I kept putting the writing task at the bottom of my to-do list until finally, I asked myself, "Why am I resistant." 

My typical responses came up; no one cares what I have to say, there are people who can do it better than me and I am not good enough.

The shift happened when I sat down and did the work. The moment I began to doubt these doubts and change my thought pattern, I had two paragraphs on the page.  My miracle happened...

Set your drishti, find your keys! Set your drishti, find your ease.

Have you ever been looking for your keys and you finally realize that you have them in your hand?

Or looking for your sunglasses and eventually discover they are ON YOUR HEAD?

This happens to me when I am hurrying. This happens to me when I feel like I have more to do than I can get done in time. Do you know what else happens to me when I feel rushed or overwhelmed? I spill my smoothie. I stub my toe. I accidentally kick the dog. OOPS.

For several years I actually worried that I had some undiscovered disease or possibly a brain tumor. I was often dizzy. I had trouble remembering where I was going and what I was doing. My hands were not cooperating with my brain. I broke a drinking glass about once a week getting ready in the morning.

Spending time worrying over my condition, left me feeling nervous and restless. I thought about it so much, I finally decided to do something about it. Because...“Do the thing and you will have the power.”

First I slowed down my mornings....
