Shift Your Perception…Change Your Life! with Dawn Brown Saturday October 26th, 2013 10:00 AM – 2:45 PM This fun and interactive workshop empowers you by increasing your awareness so that you can make powerful changes in your life, not by changing others or past events, but by shifting how you look at life’s challenges. Our perception strengthens our internal resilience to give us the motivation to reach higher levels of achievement in all areas of life. Our ability to tap into and enhance that resilience is developmental and can be learnt. Since we cannot prepare for every eventuality that occurs in life, our point of power is to strengthen our ability to seek options by looking at situations from as…[ Read More ]

If you have an enemy, and you think all of the time about how they harmed you, and your grievance, you won’t be able to eat, you won’t be able to sleep, you won’t be able to enjoy anything. Why give them that satisfaction? – Dalai Lama If we are consumed by the negative actions of others, it consumes our lives. – Sharon Salzberg What is the good of dragging up sufferings which are over, of being unhappy now because you were then. – Seneca In a recent interview with Oprah, Rosie O’Donnell commented on her tendency to focus on aspects of her past that were painful, including the death of her mother when she was ten years old. However…[ Read More ]

Life is like an ever-shifting kaleidoscope – a slight change, and all patterns alter. – Sharon Salzberg Shift your perception…recharge your life. – Dawn Brown A miracle is a shift in perception. – A Course In Miracles I recently had one of those days where I found myself working overtime to stop my mind from pointing out all the things that needed but were not getting my attention. After speaking with my sister, I grabbed my mp3 player and headed for the treadmill. After 45 minutes I had achieved the clarity and sense of calm that had been eluding me. When my sister called me later she was amazed at the difference in my frame of mind. She demanded to…[ Read More ]

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to you own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment. – Marcus Aurelius Reality doesn’t bite, rather our perception of reality bites. – Anthony D’Angelo We cannot choose our external circumstances but we can always choose how we respond to them. – Epictetus   I came across research reported in the December 2008 issue of Psychological Science that showed that intent affected perception of pain. So if someone bashed you on the head with a tennis racket, the experience of pain was greater if the blow was perceived to be intentional. Volunteers were given tasks that…[ Read More ]

Day Shift: Perception Creates Our Reality - View the Post

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.– Dr. Wayne Dyer There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.– Aldous Huxley It is one of the commonest of mistakes to consider that the limit of our power of perception is also the limit of all there is to perceive.– C.W. Leadbeater A few weeks ago I met Amanda, an ex dancer who now worked with professional dancers transitioning into other fields. Can you imagine being passionate from childhood about an activity like dancing, then making it your career knowing that at some point you will have to give it up? Heart breaking. Fortunately we’re…[ Read More ]

The local ginger isn’t spicy enough.– Old Chinese Saying How often have we missed the gifts right in front of us because we were so focused on greener pastures? We kept our eyes focused on the horizon because we “knew” things were better beyond its unseen edge. While in a cafe recently, I overheard friends talking, bemoaning the fact that one of their friends just couldn’t see that the man she was living with was good for her. Instead she kept hoping that someone better would come along. There have been many stories over the centuries about our attraction to what is not available and our rejection of what is right in front of us. Think of Groucho Marx’s comment…[ Read More ]
