Petrol for the Soul #327
What do you think about jazz? I think I’m getting it more and more. What I know I need to work on in my life is how to improvise and roll with things. Jazz seems to be all about that… so I’m trying to take my lessons from Miles Davis (most of his videos aren’t […]
Taking Deeper Responsibility
If you slow down and look around you will see what you really want. Carolyn Elliot says,“Having is evidence of wanting.” Which is an amazing and modern paraphrase to what Carl Jung is famous for saying,”Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it Fate.” Look around and […]

It sure is good to be alive. Two things I’ll offer you in this blog are appreciation and beauty. What are you grateful for and what is beautiful in your life? My idea for the week: Something thought provoking: Something amazing/beautiful: The wild card: Thanks for your time, have a great week!

At the forefront of these videos is my idea for the week. I talk about ego, our relationship with it, and fear. Then Andrew Huberman gives us the cold, hard facts about what alcohol does to us (it’s not pretty), some beautiful and amazing music from Odesza featuring Naomi Williams (what a voice!), and then […]

Petrol for the Soul #323
A simple and easy way to think about change is to embrace new things that are at a higher vibration and to let go of things that are holding us back. There are acute examples of this and it’s important to establish patterns of new thoughts, behaviors, and views of the world. My idea for […]
Just do the work.
In my own work and in my clients’ work, I notice a strong desire to dig in, to do some really hard work to get underneath stuff. But it comes at the cost of acknowledging and addressing those things that are clearly needing attention that are glaringly obvious. Like the concept of doing the work […]
