Weekly insights on peace of mind, clarity, & connection (plus, an audio surprise!) delivered to your inbox.

You are innately well - you always have been and always will be. If you're not experiencing wellness, you are innocently lost in a thick fog of thought. I can help you cut through the fog to reconnect with the peace of mind, clarity and confidence that are already within you.

I help women suffering from bulimia and binge eating disorder, using an amazingly effective, easy, brilliant new brain-based approach. You don't have to suffer any longer.

Insight #2: It’s All Thought

by Amy on August 28, 2014

Another big insight that changed everything (the first one is here): It’s All Thought.

Like A–L–L of it. That was the part that made a difference. Everyone knows that thought affects our experience. But that thought is the only thing we ever can experience…that’s a bit different.

I also talk a bit more about the format of the Being Human Weekend Retreat at the beginning of the video. We’d love to have you (and if you have your own questions about the event, send them my way!)

What is Said vs. What is Heard

by Amy on August 21, 2014

People say what they say. said vs heard

We hear what we hear.

What is said and what is heard are usually two very different things.

Here’s how it might go: Jack is telling Jill what he wants for dinner.

Maybe Jack says, “Lasagna sounds good.”

Maybe Jill hears, ”Make me lasagna.”

Maybe Jack says, “Your lasagna was delicious last time you made it.”

Maybe Jill hears, “You never make lasagna anymore.”

Or Jill hears, “You’re a fantastic cook and I appreciate you.”

Or Jill hears, “I am the man and I expect you, the woman, to make my dinner.”

Jack says what occurs to him to say, determined by what is on his mind at the moment. What he says has nearly nothing to do with Jill.

Even when it is about Jill, it’s not really about Jill. Meaning, even when “Lasagna sounds good” is the manifestation of his thought, “I expect you to cook for me”, that isn’t about Jill. It’s about Jack.

Similarly, Jill hears what she hears based on what is on her mind when she hears it. She will hear the exact same statement said the exact same way from Jack in wildly different ways, based only on her current state of mind.

Jack hears his own thinking and Jill hears her own thinking.

And you know this already. I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know about how two-way, human communication works. But there’s an excellent chance that you often forget. There’s an excellent chance that it really looks like you are hearing exactly what they are saying.

So I just wanted to remind you—you almost never are. What is said and what is heard are independent of each other.

August 14, 2014

It’s Okay to Have No Goals and Want Nothing

August 14, 2014

Maybe you’ve had a time in your life when there were no particular goals you were working toward and nothing in particular you were dreaming about. When, if someone walked up to you on the street and granted you a wish, you’d need a few minutes to place your order? I have clients in that […]

The Promise in all of this Crazy Stuff I Write About

August 7, 2014

When I first read this short blog post by my friend Bonnie, I knew I’d want to share with you all at some point.  She writes about the evolution so many of us go through. I went through it too, very similar to how Bonnie describes it. Imagine this—maybe you can relate:  You’re floating through […]

The One Source of All Human Experience

July 31, 2014

A few weeks ago a friend said something to me—when I was in the thick of some very heavy thinking—that resulted in a huge wave of comfort and relief.   He said, “…thoughts are an expression of universal energy, always fluctuating and finding the best course.” I understand that insights are as subjective as our […]

If I’m so Resourceful, Why Can’t I Figure out How to Feel Better?

July 24, 2014

The people I work with are smarter than your average bear. They are resourceful, bright, successful people. The other day, a man I find especially bright and resourceful (if I had a question about anything I’d ask this guy, knowing he could find the answer in a flash), told me he was looking for a […]

You Have No Idea How Safe You Really Are: A Story about Buddha’s Fear of Fireworks

July 17, 2014

Not unlike most dogs, my dog Buddha is petrified of fireworks.   Unfortunately for Buddha, our little corner of the world (maybe also not unlike your corner of the world) is positively cuckoo for fireworks. The past couple of weeks have been rough on her. (That’s her in the picture on the right, in happier days). […]

My Interview on Psychology, Spirituality, Bad Moods, and Finding Your Way

July 10, 2014

I was interviewed last week by my friend Lisa Esile (you know her…she’s the one who wrote that really cool piece about her year of silence that I shared with you a couple weeks ago). Anyway, Lisa teaches and writes about very similar things that I teach and write about. We have a lot in […]

Where Advice Falls Short

July 3, 2014

Have you ever wondered why we’re so set on taking advice from others?   When we ask someone else what they think or what they would do, we get their wisdom, their perspective, and a plan of action that would work for them. We do not always get wisdom, perspective, or a plan of action that […]
