 Hope you are healthy and happy as you transition into 2013...

My counseling clients continue to amaze me as they move through transitions into new chapters of their lives.  I watch their personal
symbols become tools to help them
authentically navigate life changes.
One of my favorite quotes is:
The soul never thinks without a picture. -Aristotle

Do you have your "picture to think with" in your current transition?

Here are 3 secrets I've learned in the last 27 years  

of my Cocoon to Butterfly counseling work:
 3 Secrets to Authentic TRANSITION

1. Stop & Let Go
Schedule down time to stop the movement of your life.  Be still and silent. Let go of your ideas, expectations and concepts.

2. Listen & Watch
Listen to the still, small voice within. Watch for images, symbols & stories that may arise from the silent depths inside.

3. Express thu Image & Word
Creatively capture those visual & auditory communications from your deeper self. Let them be your guide to navigate the changes in your life.


Share your Story!  

I invite you to write back to me about your deeper journey and how you changed or transitioned in 2012 (and entering 2013). 


How did the butterfly of your own becoming emerge?


How were you able to listen to your deepest self and navigate the change?  How did you experience the creative process, ignite your passion, deepen relationships or live the authentic life?


Following your: intuition, creativity, purpose and soul's journey    

through journaling, mind-mapping, treasure maps (magazine collage), nature time, yoga and movement, meditation, animal connections,  

time with mentors, favorite quiet and sacred places-for inspiration. 


Inspire others through your story!

"If you don't like something, change it.
If you can't change it,
change your attitude.
Don't complain."
                     -Maya Angelou

"Be the change you wish
to see in the world."
                      -Mahatma Gandhi

"The time has come to
turn your heart
into a Temple of Fire."

"Life is pleasant.
Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome."
        -Isaac Asimov

"Grief is perhaps an
unknown territory for you.
You might feel both
helpless and hopeless
without a sense of a
"map" for the journey.
Confusion is the hallmark
of a transition.
To rebuild both your inner and outer world is a major project."
       -Anne Grant

"Change alone is eternal, perpetual, immortal."
               -Arthur Schopenhauer

"Change before you have to."
        -Jack Welch
