You are Taking a Trip to the Underworld

What is the “underworld”? The clearest context I can offer is from an ayahuasca ceremony in Peru (for more info on that adventure click here). The underworld is dark, dirty, and shadowy. The characters that hang out there are self-serving brutes without ethics and little morals. It can be downright scary. It’s like the red light [...]

Subconscious Programs and Relationships

Over 95% of our lives are run by subconscious programs! What does this mean? Our minds are like a computer, and our subconscious mind is like our mind's base operating system. The programs running in the operating system are typically functioning outside our conscious awareness. Our habits, attitudes, thought patterns, and stories emanate from the [...]

Willpower – It’s Not the Energizer Bunny!

Have you ever noticed by the end of the day you lack willpower?  Perhaps it’s your body that suffers the most from this lack.  Think about the way many of us live.  For example, after work you are tired and perhaps stressed, so on the way home you decide to grab a pizza or some [...]

Update and Moving Forward…

Many months have passed since my last post.  Many things have happened.  Many changes have occurred.  However, I want to focus on the present, so that’s what this post is about. First, reviewing the logistics – I am settled in a one-bedroom apartment within a late 1800’s mansion in historic uptown Butte, Montana.  Twelve-foot ceilings, [...]

Why I Love Moab!

The extended time I got to spend in Moab was such a treat.  First, just see what I love about Moab…  Of all my travels so far, arriving in Moab was the first time I felt like I was arriving home.  It was a remarkable difference from my other stops.  I suppose it makes sense [...]

A (slightly crazy) Isolator’s Epiphany

When I went on the Pilgrimage to Teotihuacan, we were presented with four behavioral strategies as context for the process of starting to let go of everything we know.  The four were: Isolator; Controller; Distractor; and Pleaser. I considered myself a recovering Controller and have adopted the ways of an Isolator.  Mind you, all strategies [...]
