Welcome to Cracks in Consciousness – where the world is more than we know!
For me, the voyage of discovery is the path we take to learn about our authentic selves and our direction in life.
We all know that the world we see is more or less constructed by our current thoughts, beliefs, assumptions, and experiences. And over time, our vision of ourselves and our future often becomes limited by our own internal “blinders.”
My calling in service to others is to help people remove those blinders and learn to see themselves and their place in the world with new eyes. To help them realize that they already know the answers to their questions – they only need to look within, listen, and learn to recognize what can be, not just what is. To show people how to get from where they are to where they want to be.
“Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.” Albert Einstein
Moving to a place of illumination, personal growth, and potential starts with gaining clarity. But where to start?
Well, come along with me and we’ll open the door together!
First, I’ll tell you a story. Because I believe that telling and listening to stories is fundamental to how we can make sense of our lives.
“So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
I use a healing modality called Therapeutic Storytelling to help people address challenging experiences; offer possible resolutions; and provide the opportunity for insight and reflection. Therapeutic stories (also called healing stories) can inspire hope; instill courage; help us to connect with others; and empower us to move forward with our lives. If you’re interested in learning more about the power of this amazing key to healing and happiness, go to the Therapeutic Storytelling page.
Second, I’ll show you how to understand your own story – and then rewrite (figuratively speaking) your narrative in increasingly positive ways. It’s just as important to know your own story as it is to hear the stories of others. When a person can identify their role in their own story as well as the individual elements of their story, they can then begin to understand their lives and the world they’re part of in a way most people never experience.
In order to better understand yourself and the world around you, I’ve developed a powerful and proven three-step process called Examine Envision Emerge. You’ll learn how to open your own “Cracks In Consciousness” to see the bigger picture; to inspire new ideas for change; and to hear the messages in your heart, supporting you to take action and effect change from that place of inner strength. Each step in this process is described in detail on the Examine Envision Emerge page – if you’re eager to set sail on this part of your voyage of discovery, I encourage you to head over there now!
“If you start to look around, you will start to see.” Anne Lamott.
The power of storytelling enables us to express, explore, and change our narrative through spoken or written expression. I use blogs, books, and videos to tell my stories, share the stories of others who have joined me on the voyage of discovery, and provide a roadmap to anyone who wants to be on this path with us.
Each blog, book, and video focuses on a specific topic about how we experience and navigate our world, such as why we doubt, why we believe, and how our doubts and beliefs can influence our actions, choices, and decisions. Then I guide you through a series of Examine Envision Emerge questions and exercises that will help you start to look around; hopefully, start to see in new ways; and ultimately step into the Light!
Ready to wander at will through some of my own life-changing (or at the very least, thought-provoking) experiences and events? Go to the Blogs page and jump right in!
For an “deep-dive” into a particular topic, take a look at the Books page. You’ll see a description of each of my books and links to where you can purchase them on Amazon and Smashwords.
