16 happiness systems that have a positive effect on other people

Have you ever had an a-ha moment? You know, a moment when suddenly little bits and pieces of life fall together and make you realize something? I had one some years ago. I was at work, in a good mood, smiling. I felt like I was in a bubble; a positive, happy bubble that allowed me to work easily and get things done. I noticed that my mood, attitude and intention seemed to change the way things were happening and people were reacting around me. One colleague seemed particularly stressed and in a [...]

Effortlessness is not ‘no effort’, but ‘effort without struggle’

When was the last time you had something happen effortlessly? You know that time when you plan a project, sit down to do a task, are looking for the right doctor/accountant/partner in crime and things just 'fall into place'? Things just seem to align. Fate, the planets, karma: it all seems to be working FOR you. It brings you ideas, mojo, the right people at the right time, success, time when you didn't think you had any, the disappearance of problems or the appearance of solutions. Didn't that [...]

Are you being eaten by energy vampires?

It seems that lately, all I talk about is energy. I held a workshop on it recently. I wrote a blog post about it last year. My friends and clients all seem to be lacking energy. I myself have slowed down a lot this year and made sure I got enough rest. And yet... We are still tired, tuckered out, stressed, energy-less. How come? Besides all of the above (awareness, stress, slowing down, resting etc) I believe there is one other big enemy: Energy vampires (as my friend Nicole calls them). We were [...]

What to do when you’ve lost your way

You have been to a retreat, or a vacation, or it's the end of the year, and you've made all sorts of resolutions during that quiet time on how you will improve your life when you're back into daily routine. And it worked. For a while. For weeks, months even, you have been doing great, implementing what you've learned, sticking to your plan and keeping your resolutions. But after six months (or even three weeks :-)) some cracks appear in that foundation. Routine kicks in. Life happens. Shit happe [...]

Inspiration vs. Motivation: You need to know the difference to see why it matters to your success

“Just don’t give up on trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.” —Ella Fitzgerald   Some years ago I was asked by a women's website to write an article on inspiration or motivation. At first, I was very motivated and eagerly replied that I would love to write such an article. Sure.  Right… Uhm… There I was, devoid of inspiration. As I often do when I am at a loss, I try to be creative.  Being creative is often about linking two [...]

There is a time for everything

When you create, when you work on a project, when you organize an event, when you raise your kids, when you write a song, when you start a business, when you do anything in life really, there is a time for everything. That everything can be anything: the inspiration, the vision, the next step, the right supplier, the ideal milestone, the perfect school, that amazing riff, that excellent accountant... That everything can only come when all elements are ready for it. What elements are needed for i [...]
