Silly Hats Make Life Better

Silly Hats Make Life Better

Reconnect with your Natural Creativity
    Young children do not shy away from craft tables, saying they are not creative. Adults would be well served by taking a chance to make something that never existed before: something silly. A Silly Hat is certainly not a perfect creation. It has no specifications to meet, no measurements, no need for symmetry or meaning.

    Presented with a table of boring hats and a collection of sequins, ribbons, flowers and assorted other ...

Celebrate Depth

Celebrate Depth

    My childhood in the UK in the 1950s and 1960s was full of sayings and proverbs and quotes “as my grandmother used to say”.

    Repeated themes ran through them: lessons that children were expected to absorb in order to become useful cogs in society's wheel.
    I have been thinking, recently, about some of these: don't judge a book by its cover; beauty is only skin deep; don't judge the marmalade by the label on the jar.
    I was still a child when the American Civil Righ...

Silly Beats Stress

Silly Beats Stress

Stress
    According to WebMD, forty-three percent of adults experience negative health effects from stress, and over seventy-five percent of doctor's office visits are for stress-related problems including headaches, high blood pressure, heart problems, skin conditions,  depression, and anxiety.
    Changes in our lives are often stressful, most especially changes that are thrust upon us, leaving us feeling that we have no control.
    At the same time, change is growth and ...

Celebrate Potential
    One of my favourite novels is Stranger in a Strange Land  by Robert A Heinlein.  Published in 1961  it tells the story of Valentine Michael Smith, a human who was born on the planet Mars, and raised by Martians, completely isolated from all human culture. 
    Smith arrives in America as a young adult, and must come to terms with human society. The novel deconstructs the systems that humans take for granted as people attempt to explain the reasons and rationales that th...

Celebrate Shift

Celebrate Shift
    The dictionary says that to Shift is to 'move or cause to move from one place to another'.
    A Shift is an alteration or transformation. In terms of my work and my understanding of the world, Western society is currently Shifting: moving from where we have been into a very different future.
    This is not to suggest that we will wake up one morning in a new and Shifted world. Each of us has a contribution to make to the direction that life will Shift. Perhaps the defining ...

When Questions Are Answers.

When Questions Are Answers.

     Shifts do not happen while we are content to glide through life on a track that has been assigned to us.
     For as long as we unquestioningly accept the path that was prescribed by our childhood training, we will move forward steadily. The years of living will elapse, and inevitably our body will die.
     Martha Beck calls this ‘living in the shallows’. When we Shift, we move into the depths of life.
     Shifting from thoughtlessness into the physical re...

Proud Cry-Baby

Proud Cry-Baby

     When I think about my Shift in the Emotional Plane, I have to recognize that I grew up in a culture which revered the stiff upper lip (non-expression) of the Empire building Englishman. The attitudes which surrounded my formative self taught me about bringing civilization to savage peoples,  and justification was offered when their primitive nature was found in willingness to wail in the presence of death; or to shriek in the experience of pain.
     In my early years, no o...

Decision is Power

Decision is Power

     When I was in my twenties, I happened upon the works of Scottish novelist Jane Duncan. The books had recently gone out of print and were still widely available. Today they remain out of print and have become quite rare. Duncan’s books are fun. They are easy to read and when I read them for the first time I very much identified with the central character. Throughout the series of nineteen novels, the author, writing in the first person point-of-view, examines and questi...

Inhale. Exhale. Shift.

Inhale. Exhale. Shift.
   
     The Shift. It is word that could describe a single, simple thing. The Shift, however, is not a single thing, and it is far from simple.
     Shift is not an easy concept and it is not an easy process to describe. Saying that all aspects of The Shift can be defined and described in a blog post is a little like suggesting that one can discuss Life and all of its facets.
     A complex and multidimensional notion, The Shift can be understood holistically only when we...

Fractions and the Big Picture
 
     Author Arundhati Roy has written‎ “Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” This is a concept which resonates deeply with me. As I observe and note the societal changes that constitute the ongoing Shift, I am consistently aware of the future being transformed.
     I am working with my friend and colleague, Tamlyn Hedemann, on an inspiring and comprehensive book about how the ways of love are shif...

The Crate Story

The Crate Story

    To Shift is to move from one place to another: a crate can be shifted from the floor to a shelf.
     When that happens, there is a time when the crate is no longer on the floor, occupying the previous position, and it has not yet arrived at the destination point.
     In many ways, in relation to the societal Shift, we are currently living this ‘in-between’ time, and perhaps the movement of the crate can serve as a parable.
     Imagine a world where people live inside ...

Gifts of The Shift

     When I first arrived in this human incarnation, I had come to a family where adults and a young sibling were my teachers. We lived circumstances that would predispose me to the learning I intended to accomplish. I believed that security would ease me into the physical realm. My expectation was that I would be taught the secrets of success and thus I would succeed. It wasn’t quite like that.
     Years later, as I became more independent, I looked for predictability and...

Moving Towards the Tipping Point

     Online discussions of The Shift and ongoing Shift Energy often quote an American First Nations storyteller named Choquash  who is credited with this quote:
     "The elders have sent me to tell you that now is like a rushing river, and this will be experienced in many different ways. There are those who would hold onto the shore... there is no shore. The shore is crumbling. Push off into the middle of the river. Keep your head above the water, look around t...

Shifting Self to Shift the World

     A global Shift in consciousness is taking place, and it may be affecting you in a number of ways. Jim Malloy suggests that the energy of Shift can make life feel harder to enjoy than in the past. Emotional intensity and racing thoughts may fill your mind and feed a sense of anxiety. Physically you may be tense or compelled to stay busy. Impatience and urgency and obsessions might jockey for your attention, and sometimes there is a swing from optimism to pe...

The Ongoing Shift
 
     Before December 2012, there was lots of hype about the supposed end of the Mayan calendar. There were all sorts of tabloid writings and broadcasts about the end of the world as we know it; and plenty of opportunities for a few people to profit from the sales of books and retreats and coping skills that could be applied to the singular moment in history which had often been called The Shift.
     Once the date had passed, the hype mostly disappeared and life went on. For ...
