    Episode 54: What About Boundaries?

    Episode 54: What About Boundaries?

    We've all been advised to "set boundaries" with others, or around our own behaviors. But does that mean that others will follow our "rules," or that we'll remember our own boundaries when we get insecure? We explain that boundaries that arise from insecurity are different from wisdom, or common sense insights, that occur to us in the moment and lead us to step away from situations, or step back from our own impulses or habitual thoughts and behaviors. We can "observe" boundaries without trying to manage others or make rules that won't be followed under pressure, and live at peace.

    Episode 53: How We Talk Ourselves Out of Doing Things

    Episode 53: How We Talk Ourselves Out of Doing Things

    We frequently talk ourselves out of inspiration by trusting our insecure thinking.  Then we can get caught up in analyzing an infinite number of reasons WHY we're doing what we're doing.  In this episode, we bring it back to simplicity and discuss how learning to quiet down, listen to your wisdom, and trust the thinking that comes to you, helps you to follow through and get the things done that you really want to do.

    Episode 52: The Key To Letting Go of Hurt Feelings and a Broken Heart Is Not Analysis

    Episode 52: The Key To Letting Go of Hurt Feelings and a Broken Heart Is Not Analysis

    Most of us have gone through a time in our life when we've had our heart broken or feelings hurt in relationships with friends and lovers. Misunderstanding of why things are happening comes from our own analysis of the events. We feel wronged and sometimes justified in holding onto grudges, feeling hateful, and obsessing about all the negative things that happened, but this only keeps us stuck in the past and personalizing everything. 

    Finding peace and moving on comes not from analyzing the situation but from accessing our own innate health and listening to our wisdom. We can then see the past from a different vantage point and once again find happiness.

    Episode 51: Trying Is Backwards

    Episode 51: Trying Is Backwards

    People are told to fix what appears to be wrong with them in order to feel better and end up feeling hopeless, or broken because it doesn't help.  Focusing on the problems we have or trying to change experiences we have already created does not bring us to mental well-being.  "Trying" is a signal you are turned around and attempting to find happiness by managing thought or behavior.  Turn around and look inside.  Find the state of mind that provides security and let the answers come to you.  It is so simple and easy unless you are looking at it backwards!

    Episode 50: Thought-Body Connection

    Episode 50: Thought-Body Connection

    We've all had the experience of variable feelings of our own pain — for example, forgetting about an aching back in the presence of a laughing baby or a playful puppy. The way we experience pain is through thought. What and how much we think about pain determines how it feels to us. As our state of mind falls into insecurity, we tend to focus on what's wrong and it feels much worse. When we are distracted or our spirits lift and our thinking changes, pain moves into the background and we experience life in the foreground. Pain is a signal that lets us know how we're using our thinking.

    Episode 49: Searching vs. SEEING

    Episode 49: Searching vs. SEEING

    Everyone has stories to tell about "searching" for experts, wise people, gurus, geniuses... anyone perceived as having special, deep understanding of life. Many people search for years, often finding interesting and helpful ideas along the way. But searching does not bring us our own answers, or peace of mind. SEEING, that is gaining our own deep insights from our own wisdom, is the natural guide to our own lives, and wisdom is within all people, always accessible, but not always understood or accessed.  When we SEE for ourselves, we get the answers we need for ourselves.

Excellent, true and very entertaining!

Straight to the point and brimming with wisdom well worth hearing. Sharing the truth about mental health and how traditional Psychology innocently sends people in the wrong direction. Looking for answers in a difficult past doesn’t bring anyone happiness, it just makes us experts in our problems. Having attended therapy for many years and then learning about the 3 Principles i can honestly say that the difference between the two are like night and day. These coaches/therapists are sharing a simple but profound understanding which changes everything for the better. Thank-you for taking the time to do this. I hope this podcast reaches as many people as possible so that they get to experience a life of love and understanding.

It’s Contagious

Listening to Christine and Judy speak to the innate health in all beings is a refreshing break from all the static that’s playing out in the world today. As a fellow human and mental health provider I can attest to the contagious affect this understanding has on those who are willing to quiet down and listen within.
