Volume 1, Issue 3: (SHIFT-IT) ARCHEOLOGY OF BELIEFS

Volume 1, Issue 5: (SHIFT-IT) INVESTIGATE YOUR NOW

Volume 1, Issue 6: (SHIFT-IT) FOCUS ON YOUR FUTURE
Personal visioning work is all about using your imagination --- properly. Instead of focusing on what you DON'T want (your current dissatisfaction), turn your focus to what you DO want. Imagine yourself in an improved reality from the one you are currently living. . . . read more

Volume 1, Issue 8 (SHIFT-IT) TIPS TO CREATE POWERFUL PERSONAL VISIONS
All of us are busy, busy people and we operate in busy, busy worlds. Pushed about by many competing forces, demands, wants and desires. Creating a Vision, whether you are a large company or a solo individual, helps to stabilize, ground and guide you.

Volume 1, Issue 9 (SHIFT-IT) SHIFTS HAPPEN FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Want to shift from one reality to another? Want to create a different existence for your company, your family, yourself? If you do, you first need to make the shift inside in order to manifest it later on the outside. Change is an 'inside- out' game. You need to first believe it --- then you will see it. It is called "The Law of Attraction." . . . read more
Volume 1, Issue 10 (SHIFT-IT) SOOTHE YOUR SUB-PERSONALITIES
The trick after creating a Personal Vision is to be able to "allow" it. To be able to fully believe it is possible and possible for you. Sometimes there are glitches in being able to believe. Different people have different glitches in different areas. One way to access and re-align those glitches is to investigate your "sub-personalities" --- those different parts of you that are somehow resistant to the Vision you have created for yourself. . . . read more

Volume 2, Issue 2 (SHIFT-IT) SELF CARE, TOXIC ENVIRONMENTS, BEING "SELFISH."
Time and again I encounter clients who sacrifice their own health, mental outlook and well being for work and others. Over time, they have developed unhealthy patterns and habits that accumulate in shocking ways. As entrepreneurs or employees (internal managers and leaders) they don't eat well, don't sleep well, don't take proper time off ---- bit by bit they gain weight (or drastically lose it), burn themselves out from constant stress and adrenaline rushes, and develop lifestyles that are unhealthy and unsustainable. . . . read more

In my SHIFT-IT and Graphic Coaching work I help clients identify what they really, really want and help them get it. One area that commonly comes up is desired changes to their physical body, weight and physique.

Volume 2, Issue 4 (SHIFT-IT) SINGLES WANTING PARTNERS.
