Money Matters – Understanding Abundance

Portrait Michael Thomas

  Understanding Abundance   Having a clear understanding of abundance is instrumental in leading a prosperous, harmonious, and balanced life. If we can’t define it or identify it, how will we ever attain it?   By Michael Thomas Robinson   Last month, we discussed aligning your purpose with money and how it will propel you to live a peaceful and abundant life.   Abundance can be defined as: an ample quantity; affluence, wealth; relative degree of … [Read more...]

Part Eight: Gratitude “If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough,” ― Meister Eckhart Just as kale and blueberries are classified as super foods, gratitude could be considered a super emotion -- it increases happiness, strengthens relationships, promotes wellness, and reinforces pro-social behavior. Cultivating this super emotion increases our intake of emotional nutrients. The Link Between Gratitude and Happiness Taking M. Eckhart’s advice to heart and action, … [Read more...]

Going For Your Gusto

Lean in and out to step forward in your career. All of us, men and women, are increasingly encouraged to step up and take initiative in our work if we want to be “successful.”  Whether we feel brave enough to lean in at the work place or we choose to lean out and pursue our own path, putting a stake in the ground is essential. I recently read Sheryl Sandberg's book, Lean In, her understandably controversial discourse about women, ambition, and overcoming the self-doubt and prescribed social … [Read more...]

Money Matters: Aligning Money with Purpose

The Key: Understanding Cash Flow Aligning money with purpose is a means to achieve a level of clarity, balance, and harmony within one’s Self. Our purpose is what gets us out of bed, excites us, and drives us. It propels us to live a vibrant, healthy, peaceful, and abundant life. We can gain control over our finances through an understanding of cash flow which, as I’ll explain, is the key driver in support of our purpose. Over the past 15 years as a financial and estate planner, I have … [Read more...]

Clear Up the Relationship Climate

Positive Biases are a Key to Happy Relationships   By Dr. Carrie Hutchinson   In assessing a relationship’s health, whether friends, family members, or lovers, it is not only necessary to check the temperature daily but also to examine the overall climate.   Long ago in one of your first science classes, you may have learned the difference between weather and climate. While the weather may vary, the climate of a particular region remains relatively stable over … [Read more...]

Ashley-Receive the wonder

Part Seven: Receive The Wonder This statement reads so simply, yet the complexity of the concept has been deliberated by the likes of Plato and Buddhist monks. As daunted as those who took on this subject before myself, I decided to go out in search of the wonder. In this process, I found a self-portrait that I drew at age five: an inked outline of a woman (apparently I was well-developed in my mind) with the words “I love ME!” written boldly next to it. There it was, in its simplicity of … [Read more...]

Compassionate Communication Orient Your Attention to the Other Person

As I arrived at yoga class the other day, I learned that the electricity was out, which meant there would be no heat and no music. The instructor awkwardly apologized, assuring us that the class was usually about 80 degrees (instead of 50) and normally accompanied by inspiring music. Also, she said, it was a new time slot, which explained why there were only three people in the huge room. Despite the unexpected hurdles, the class ended up being phenomenal, although while sinking into my final … [Read more...]

Ashley-Do the Work

Part Six: Do The Work – Move in Rhythm We are now more than halfway through our intention-setting process. Part six in our series is Do the work – Move in rhythm.  I detested homework, chores, or anything that could be claimed by the statement, “Go do your work,” when I was a kid. That changed when I came to understand the concept of ebb and flow, or the process of Do The Work – Move in Rhythm. Cycles occur all around us, including the tides in the ocean, our sleep patterns, and even our … [Read more...]

Ashley-offerings, not outcome

Part five: Offerings, Not Outcomes This month we arrive at the fifth step of intention setting: Offerings, not Outcomes.  I would like to offer a business model to explain this concept as well as add another helpful tool in intention setting. After college I was working in a creative field and, like many people at that point in one’s life, a little lost.  Seeing this, my father sat me down and told me I should utilize a “moving business plan” to develop a more solid plan for my life. Since … [Read more...]

Ashley-release it jpg

Part four: Release It  We now step into the fourth stage of the nine-part intention-setting journey we began in September. Steps one through three have brought us to what I think is the most elusive step: Release it. Once you have deeply set the intention, let it go (with a dash of faith).   When talking about releasing and letting go of the intentions we have set, I use the term elusive because of the difficulty it takes to describe and achieve this state.  To quote Eugen Herrigal from Zen … [Read more...]
