As we continue across this path of self-discovery, we come to understand our Dharma, or purpose in life. Often, it’s so simple we are quick to overlook it. Through a process of self-inquiry and reflection, we analyze our beliefs, thoughts and uncover our most authentic self. In this process of self-discovery, we remember our true nature. This awakens our passion in life and opens doors to greater potential. The purpose of this blog is to share ideas that encourage inner reflection; in hope that by sharing such; others may find more peace, experience more energy and greater potential.
As a kid I struggled from learning disabilities (Dyslexia, ADD and severe anxiety). Depending on the doctor, and also depending on my hyperactive level at that time, I was diagnosed with either ADD or ADHD along with severe anxiety and Dyslexia. The combination of these challenges crippled my self-esteem and confidence at a very early age. Having to learn how to heal and outgrow these challenges (without any medications), was the spark that ignited my passion around learning and human potential.
Through a series of accidents (auto/farm), health imbalances, and the after-math of childhood trauma, I have found that anything can be changed and anything can be healed. As we reflect, analyze and question all our thoughts, our self-imposed limitations are revealed. In this, the lessons from our struggles become more apparent and as this happens we open up and expand into more gratitude. Personally, I see the dark nights of the soul, as a journey back to the self. Learning how to open up, breathe and direct our imagination is key. Silence is our best guide.
As a teacher on meditation and emotional intelligence, I’ve become very passionate about heart-centered leadership. Utilizing methods that allow in-depth feeling and interpretation of the emotional data allows for a deeper connection and understanding. In doing so, we’re able to create a safe environment that fosters creativity, freedom and authentic self-expression. Uniting with my wife (Annette) of a similar journey, has allowed for us to combine our efforts for helping others.
