Put on your lipstick

Relax your jaw, but keep your mouth gently closed. Breathe in through your nose as deeply as is comfortable, bearing in mind that your abdomen should rise on each inbreath, not your chest. Breathe out gently through your mouth, but with your lips together so that you can make a …

I was headed for a fall

Lost dreams and found dreams

Create window seats with cupboards beneath them and choose console tables that have shelves underneath, too. Cube-shaped seating and occasional tables with lift-off tops are good for toy storage (Ikea is usually pretty good for these). If your living space doubles as an office space, check out The Dormy House …

You will find a purpose

Quantum physicist Amit Goswami agrees: We cannot understand quantum physics without introducing consciousness into it. Penrose, with his co-collaborator, anesthesiologist Dr Stuart Hameroff, declared: We conclude that consciousness plays an intrinsic role in the universe. And perhaps most significantly, Max Planck, one of the founders of quantum physics, stated in …

How sweet that joyous sound

When I was growing up, I lived three houses down from Jamie Jones (a fake name, so don't bother googling). We were the same age, in the same class--and I had no idea if he had more friends or more toys than me. A curtain of unknowing separated us. I …

You don't know what it is

I've worked with clients who have whole baskets full of them - unused, gathering dust and well past their expiry dates. Instead, donate any unused in-date samples to women's charities that can make good use of them. The medicine cupboard A well-organised medicine cupboard will save you time and money, as …

You just take it for what it is

Determine how you will hold each other accountable. For instance, you could send each other your weekly goals on a set day and check whether you hit them during your weekly meeting. Discuss what a typical session will look like. What will you do during the meeting? I encourage you …

Let them take you for a clown

But you say that love can be a method in itself to reach the higher reality? In my opinion the yogi (in the subcontinent) has chosen to renounce love (and life to a degree) because in the core of his being, a lot of these cultural yogis do not really …

It's not a matter of when push comes to shove

Now my confusion opened up into curiosity. I tried kinesthetic input, having the kids play with clay and move around. For some children, this produced more beta waves; What I hadn't realized until that point was: 1) Input from the outside caused the children's brains to shift from focused attention …

Laughing all the way

When the subconscious is working, slow brain waves are present. They are different than the fast brain waves of the conscious brain that are there when you're working on a spreadsheet. In many ways, the highly developed, analytical channels of the conscious brain can be seen as both a blessing …

I am your guiding light

We live in a world where negativity, trauma, and chronic pain prevent people from remembering their inherent greatness. Too many people are trapped in the negative feedback loops of pain, depression, and self-doubt. These loops prevent them from offering their unique gifts and love to the world. Hormones and neurotransmitters …

Keep singing our song

Market-share mentality solves problems by asking our minds to think practically, analytically, and procedurally. We break down challenges into small pieces and arrange them neatly in sequential order, hoping the solution will make itself apparent. A question is asked and our brains shoot back an answer: Ready, aim, fire. We …

See the water flowing way beneath the bridge

I dug deep, I hustled and I invested in the right people around me to keep me focused and on track. I formed the LBDGroup, a network for commercially smart women who collaborate and support each other (which I sold in March 2019). Since then, I've built a global speaking …

As you brush your shoes

Most Americans under sixty-five probably would have been fine. In a country of 340 million, 1. Nearly 3 million die each year anyway, from all sorts of stuff. Well, we did. My little shoebox of special tokens still contains notes and cards from extraordinary women along that journey. They spoke …

Let us unlock all the chains

What will I gain from this? Someone leaving, someone dying, getting sick. What will I gain from this? What do you wish you never did anymore? Then there's the level of your filter system. Perhaps at that level you believe that relationships never work, that people will always leave you …

Get some heavy rest

So we can aim our restrictions and interventions to prevent as best we can the most common dangers, the most common bad events. And we do a good job of that. But like any curve, it trails off for a ways in either direction. In other words, there are a …

It will stay with me until the end

Thus, just as a body has shifted away from using glucose during a fast, eating too much processed carbohydrate, which will spike glucose and insulin, is the wrong way to end a fast. The calories we eat, when we do eat, have a powerful effect on insulin control, something we'll …

All you have to do is ring a bell

Lush arugula bushes and overflowing tomato bushes. One year, I tried to plant in my shady backyard and I got nothing. The seeds and plants were the same, but the conditions in which I planted them were different. Think of Jane's mind as the soil. The atmosphere they create through …

You're getting weaker and your knees begin to sag

There are countries in the world where it's considered inhumane and counterproductive to isolate a man for more than three days. And yet our justice system will isolate children for up to a year. We have built entire prisons with the sole purpose of holding men in seclusion for months …

The leaves fall one by one by one by one

My heart keeps beating faster

The rationale behind this policy arises from a concern that detainees could use such sites to coordinate criminal activity. That concern may be valid, but the responses to such violations are ludicrous.

Who made me read between the lines?

This usually means lots of singing, posturing, and aggressive, territorial behavior. For some of the other creatures, this time heralds a season for giving birth to young conceived some months before. But regardless of these varying conditions, one thing remains common to one and all--and it is apparent to anyone …

Don't you ever go down that route

My theory is that dreams are the same: you need to have some kind of exit strategy for them, or they'll just sink into your unconscious and eventually blow out of you. So each morning I patiently sit on my bed and allow the dreams into my consciousness and notice …

Considering commonalities among peers

One cracks a quiet joke to the kid in line behind him, covers his mouth with his hand, smirks, punches his friend playfully on the shoulder. The friend laughs, watching the CO out of the corner of his eye, ready to become stone-faced should the CO turn to spot them …
