I Give Myself Permission To Not Know

February 21st, 2014 by Laura Longley

Yesterday I had a session with my BodyTalk practitioner. She talks to my body silently and uses muscle testing to get answers. A few minutes into the session she asked me, “What would you like to give yourself permission for?” Immediately I knew that I wanted to give myself permission to not know. I’ve recently…

January 17th, 2014 by Laura Longley

I continue to be amazed at how connected everything (and everyone) in my life is. There is no doubt in my mind that we are all connected and that everything that happens in my life is related. The past several weeks I’ve been feeling a lot of doubt and confusion about my career direction. It…

Eagles, Part I – Spirit Is Always Present

June 4th, 2012 by Laura Longley

Friday was my birthday. Several weeks earlier I made plans to go by myself to the Olympic Peninsula. Part of my motivation was to spend some time alone in nature. To reflect and meditate on what I wanted to create in the coming year. On a clear day when I am driving the hills of…

Why Do I Resist Showing Appreciation to Others?

May 22nd, 2012 by Laura Longley

I have been aware for quite some time that I have difficulty expressing appreciation for others unless what they have done is significantly above and beyond. On surveys I’m loathe to rate anyone (or anything) a 5 out of 5, even when there’s nothing that could be improved. I hate standing ovations. Very occasionally I…

I Am Not My Body

March 26th, 2012 by Laura Longley

For years – most of my life – I have struggled with body image issues.  I have a mother who, at the age of 83, is still dieting.  As a child my best friend was put on a diet at the age of 11.  As a child I was what you would call sturdy.  I…
