Books such as Think and Grow Rich and As A Man Thinketh have been around for many years. By reading these books and others, many of us have learned that our thoughts have powerful affects on us. Thoughts will always flow through our minds, but we don’t have to believe everything we think. We can choose the ones to believe. This isn’t ‘new age jargon’. In Dr. Norman Doidge’s new book, The Brain That Changes Itself, you will find how he bridges the gap between science and self-help in his varied case studies of brain plasticity. Dr. Doidge was also featured on PBS’s The Brain Fitness Program. (more…)

Barbara and Helena have been dear friends of mine for over 30 years.  In addition to sharing lots of laughter and adventures with them, I went to college with Barbara and traveled to Germany with Helena. I recently helped my daughter, who just graduated from college, move to Boulder. It so happens that Barbara and Helena live there, in addition to many other dear friends. So, I was thrilled to spend time with them once again. They are powerful women in tune with the force that surrounds us! And so is my daughter who took on a big challenge–followed her intuition and moved alone without a job to Colorado, and within a month is happily settled with a new job that she loves, and a beautiful rental house 2 blocks from 20 trailheads.

It wasn’t easy, but my daughter is a force to be reckoned with, and even though she’s short, she’s mighty. She proves the point Yoda made to Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back when he complained that ‘it was too big.’

Luke: I can’t. It’s too big.
Yoda: Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere. Yes, even between the land and the ship.

Do you feel the force around you? It’s there! How do you feel it?
