Have you ever felt dissatisfied? Are you always wanting more and do you know that it’s possible?

What if that wasn’t a wrongness? What if that ache of dissatisfaction is a gift and capacity? What if that is what drives your life forward?

What if dissatisfaction is what shows up when you know there is a possibility that you could be choosing — and haven’t yet?

In South Africa, my friend Gary Douglas and I recorded a special video about the hidden gift behind the dissatisfaction…

Would you like to know more? Click on the video below!

If you start to get the greatness of you, and your dissatisfaction, things will get better not only for you, but for all of us!

What if you are the gift, the possibility and the change this world requires my friend?

Hope to see you somewhere in the world soon, 🙂

Leading Without Followers

December 21, 2015 — 3 Comments

Would you like to see something different being created on this planet of ours?

I know I do. And I know it’s possible. What about you?

What do you know, that you’ve been pretending not to know, or denying that you know, that if you allowed yourself to know it, would change everything in our world for the greater?

Would you be willing to know it, create it, and lead your life, and this planet, to something greater?

A leader knows where they must go and is willing to go there even if nobody gets it, nobody understands it, and nobody follows.

If we’re truly going to change the face of this planet, we need to step up and have a voice.  And by voice, I don’t mean shouting from the rooftops. You may not even have to say a word. What can your very presence invite everyone around you to?

I recently spoke at an event, Wisdom Stockholm, talking about our capacity to shape the planet’s future and tools to assist in choosing it.  Click HERE or below to watch the video of my talk below.

True leaders don’t create followers. They create leaders.

Is now the time to take the lead, without expecting anyone to follow, and create what you know is possible in the world?

You can be a voice for the world. You, being you, is a contribution that can not only change someone’s world, but also change the planet.

Until next time,

Earth is Our Home

November 18, 2015 — 2 Comments

Yes, the Earth is big. Probably way bigger than any of us can imagine… Just tap into the ever-reaching mountains touching the heavens … the blue, bottomless ocean …  and the softest sand dancing with the dunes of the desert.

If there is one thing I would like you to get from this video, it is that: The Earth is big. And we all share it.

It is our home. 

And yes, I only mention the Paris attacks in this video. I am not even trying to get the list right. It is too long. Too many beautiful amazing places on Earth have been hit by terrorism. Beirut, Nairobi, New York, Moscow… What occurs for one of us occurs for all of us!

It is time for change. 

So I am using Paris to show you something about you. You, my friend, have a choice. 

You have a choice of who you be in the face of tragedy.

You have a choice of you would like to be on this Earth.

Will you go for the trauma and drama — or will you be the possibility of something completely different?

Is now the time?

Click below to watch the video.

Be you.

PS. I wrote an article for the Huffington Post called ‘Not on Our Watch’. If you would like to explore what Tomorrowland could truly be like, go HERE to read it.

Our brothers and sisters in Paris, we are with you. As fellow citizens of this beautiful planet…what occurs for one of us occurs for all of us.

Sometimes out of the greatest tragedy comes the greatest possibility. Sometimes it is what we require to wake ourselves from the slumber of apathy.

We don’t necessarily have a choice about everything that gets created in our world, but we do have choice in how we respond.

Would we all be willing to ask what contribution we can be to make sure this never occurs on our planet again?

Will it happen again, someplace else? Maybe. But what can we step up and be willing to be that would change our world and reality so this can no longer happen in any of our cities, states and countries around the world?

East and west are irrelevant. We ALL live on this planet together.

Now is the time for the voices of possibility and awareness to speak up. Now is the time for us to stop being silent. If you would like to see something different as your world, BE the energy of that showing up in the world.

Know that it can exist. Don’t deny it. Don’t negate it. Stop believing that it has no value. Your awareness of something different and something possible, is what has the greatest value at a time like this.

What do you know that will change the face of our planets future that you haven’t been choosing?

If we would recognize this planet as our home, what would we all choose that we are not yet choosing? And if we did choose it, what might occur that hasn’t yet been able to?

Let’s stop letting the future of our planet be in the hands of those that scream the loudest and hate the most.

Let’s take back our future and recognise we have the capacity to create a kinder, gentler, more inclusive, less judgmental, less vitriolic world.

It is within our grasp.

WE, together, can create it.

If not us, who? If not now, when?

Have you ever looked up at the sky or down at the earth and been in awe of this magical, beautiful planet?

Have you ever wondered about the meaning of life? Or the universe? Or the phenomenance of being alive?

So often we look to others for answers. For someone else to explain to us how things work and how we should be in the world.

What if that was one of the greatest limitations we’ve bought in to? What if we come in to this world just knowing and being aware of everything and everyone?

What I’d like to ask you my friends is…

What if you were willing to know that you know?

What if you didn’t have to think or figure anything out? What if you already KNOW?

One of your greatest capacities as a being is your infinite ability to perceive, know, be, and receive. Notice that thinking isn’t one of them?

You may have been using that brilliant mind of yours over and over again, but if it could have figured everything out, wouldn’t it have done so already?!?

As I watched this video of this phenomenal 9 year old boy, I was reminded again of our capacity to KNOW.

So let me ask you my friend – What do you know, that you have been refusing to know, that if you were willing to know it, would change everything?

I wonder what we could create on this planet if we claimed, owned, and acknowledged that we know?

Until next time my friends 🙂

For fourteen years Oprah ran a column in O Magazine called “What I Know For Sure.” 

It’s an interesting question.  In truth, the longer I have played with Access tools, the more I have found that almost everything I thought was true and real throughout my life was actually a lie or a construct.  Many things I thought I was sure of have long disappeared.  

And yet, in my time on the planet, there are some things that I actually know, really know, from deep within me that have no diminished but instead keep getting stronger and clearer.  I would like to share them with you here.  And as I do, remember that what is true for you is light.  Do any of these match what you know to be true?  And if so, I wonder what kind of planet we can create together?

I keep asking:

AND I KNOW FOR SURE…

  • That we are greater together than apart.
  • That together we can change anything–including everything that ails our planet.
  • That judgment is a choice, NOT something we’re born with.
  • That there is greatness within each of us and only a small percentage of us will have the courage to be different enough to choose it.
  • And…that the more of us that see the greatness in ourselves, the greater the world gets.
  • That choice is our greatest capacity.
  • Our differences are part of our greatness and should be embraced not eliminated.

Thank you for the gift you are in the world. I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt that our differences, embraced rather than judged and made wrong, will bring about a greater world.

Till next time, beautifuls!

PS. I mention the last Being You Hangout for the year in this video — How to Survive the Holidays and Still Be You!

Here it is!

Have you noticed that you, or people around you, recently have been having more physical ailments and diseases than in a long time? Or that old issues with their bodies are coming back?

What if they are detoxing energetically? What if they are detoxing what is no longer working for them?

Many of the people that are having body issues going on right now, are people that have been doing more work to increase their awareness of themselves, who they truly are and the world around them.

What if what is going on is exactly what is required? What if now is the time to detox this reality?
