Count Me In!

The morning was filled with politics. What are we for, what are we against? What matters? What could touch the heart of any individual anywhere on the planet? What slogan could unify a divided country, a divided world, a divided self? At the end of a recent local political meeting the phrase “Count me in!”Continue reading “Count Me In!”

My Teacher Was a Cottontail Rabbit

I was literally propelled from the chair where I had been sitting. NOW!!! Release Teacher now! I jumped up, took Sam the cat’s kennel, stuffed it full of goodies and water, and took this tiny creature outside on a hill near the house.

The Appropriate Use of Procrastination and Deadlines

The Great Procrastinator For years the L. in my middle name stood for “late,” “lazy,” “loony,” and seemingly downright “lackadaisical.” My negative inner voice was relentless and the outer voices were often a match. I would put things off and put them off again until I had frustrated everyone around me and myself as well:Continue reading “The Appropriate Use of Procrastination and Deadlines”

Consent

Consent is a very tricky issue. How do I know if consent is real or even possible? How do I tell if what I am consenting to and what you think I am consenting to are the same? What recourse do I have to change my mind and take back my consent midstream for anyContinue reading “Consent”

A Dog’s Intuition

Since we humans are creatures of immense and apparently very predictable routines, my dog Chaco decided he’d teach me a thing or two about his mastery of intuition, and my equally impressive lack of it from a dog’s perspective. It All Started With Separation Anxiety When Chaco the dog’s first human became ill and subsequentlyContinue reading “A Dog’s Intuition”

Intuition Connects Everything!

Intuition is a continuous signal. This signal emanates from all physical and nonphysical  environments and sends messages instantaneously to any outpost of literally all that exists: beliefs, emotions, mountains, people (whether we like them or not), animals, universes we know nothing about, immeasurably small particles…literally everything! It provides information about the nature of our worldsContinue reading “Intuition Connects Everything!”

Quick-Style Vision Board

Management and self-help seminars often use a process with senior executives and managers called creating a “vision board.” This is a way to discover deeper and often hidden wishes without relying so heavily on logic. Once completed, the vision board can actually jump start change in team participation and enhance the long-term success of theContinue reading “Quick-Style Vision Board”

How I Came to Focus on Business Intuition

People routinely ask me what in the world I mean by the term  “business intuition” and how I came to get involved in its application to everyday business matters. Here is an audio interview conducted with me by my colleague Kip Eddy in 2002, some ten years after I began to work in this field.Continue reading “How I Came to Focus on Business Intuition”

Collaboration, One Way or the Other…

Many years after an intense decade immersed in African politics and culture I was talking with my friends Kip Eddy and Sue Phillips about the possibility of UFO’s and extra-dimensional or extraterrestrial beings making their presence felt on earth. Kip was fascinated with the subject and I was happy to oblige his curiosity by takingContinue reading “Collaboration, One Way or the Other…”

Plot Twists: The Body as Storyboard

There is no storyboard more dynamic, animated, full of plots, subplots, protagonists, antagonists, good guys and bad guys, and plain old plot twists than the human body. Our bodies respond instantaneously to every dream, desire, fear, emotion, and speculation. Like “Plastic Man” in the old action hero comic books, our bodies will help us tellContinue reading “Plot Twists: The Body as Storyboard”

Core Beliefs and the Body

I know why I was born an African-American female, why the fulfillment of my purpose in life needed these physical characteristics to make me strong, help me see, even support me in the special kind of leadership I was to undertake. My root assumption, my overriding conscious core belief about our experience of physical reality,Continue reading “Core Beliefs and the Body”

Choice III: Keeping At It

If one single thing distinguishes this new millennium in my mind, it will be the active and fully conscious exercise of choice. It is only the intensity of choice that can break the oppositional pull of dualism, provide the synthesis between contradictions, handle, if never entirely eliminate dilemmas, and move the human spirit to theContinue reading “Choice III: Keeping At It”

The Color of Music

Recently a colleague came to dinner. The conversation was East Coast heady covering decades of experience, emotion, and intellectual understanding. We laughed, traded professional and bawdy stories, discovered surprise. All was going along quite well until a question shot out like a bolt from the blue… “Why did you stop singing, Helen?” my musically savvyContinue reading “The Color of Music”

My Big Toe

I returned from a most extraordinary trip to the East Coast only to discover that all that walking around had damaged my right big toe. It was blue purple, bleeding, swollen, looking as if the nail would pop right off at the slightest touch. We walked a lot in New York City, but I hadContinue reading “My Big Toe”

A Non-Scientific Approach to Singularity

The search for world peace is ultimately based on a relentless yearning for the Singularity, the remembrance of complete synchrony in that moment just before all remembrance fades into oblivion. Singularity is the siren’s sound that calls us home for dinner: home for alignment and attunement; home for repair of the universal heart of being.Continue reading “A Non-Scientific Approach to Singularity”

YES!!

For me the most important word in any language is “Yes!” “Yes” represents the transformation from either-or to both-and thinking. It is the fusion of dualities, the essence of choice, the claiming of personal and collective responsibility. It is ending the need to blame or shame, the need to dominate or annihilate, the need toContinue reading “YES!!”

Synchronicities

I awaken from a powerful dream about a family member, and two hours later I receive great news from a closely connected relative. I am having dinner conversation at home on a particular subject, and the very next day I receive an email from someone in my distant past related to that very subject, orContinue reading “Synchronicities”

The Importance of Surprise and Trust in the Intuitive Process

Surprise is the single most important clue that you have stumbled into the realm of the intuitive. Often what doesn’t make any rational sense right now makes a whole lot of sense in the larger scheme of things, but you won’t be able to know for sure until later. In the meantime, you have toContinue reading “The Importance of Surprise and Trust in the Intuitive Process”

It all started with grits and granola…

There are so many little sayings I heard as a child growing up as a preacher’s kid in a military family, with few around us then who looked or thought the way we did. Today, many years after the death of both of my parents, I find myself still quoting these little axioms, like ManyContinue reading “It all started with grits and granola…”
