There Aren't Any Happy Endings
Welcome to Centering Tools!

My Space

Create, Express and Choose Your Identity

Of course I learned about this amazing, rich, wonderful cyberspace universe from my four children, now aged 15, 22, 24 and 30 – all of whom have their own “domains” in it.  I must admit I like the title and the invitation to create, express, and choose how to identify, highlight, and focus on oneself with an eye to freely, confidently sharing it all with the world.

It occurs to me that in my Centering® practice I centrally support clients finding, keeping, expanding, and creating their own inviolate space; and that it is a mysterious journey with surprising, wonderful results that emerge through both hope and woundedness.  In a world with increasing focus on the external and all its complicated pulls, no wonder we are so happy with creating, in the blank space of the inviting Internet, my space.

Connect in Simple, Meaningful Ways

Who are we, really?  How do we want to be in the world?  What are our widest dreams, deepest goals, and clinging visions?  How do we relate, anyway?

My Space artfully draws this all out of us, makes us so suddenly eager to display it all for the world to see.  I think the central invitation is to connect in simple, meaningful ways to ourselves and each other, and thoroughly enjoy all corresponding journeys.  What an ideal vision of how to live one’s life, how to experience relationships!   

The Price of Joy Lost

Joy can be in short supply these days.  There is so much fear, so much wear-down, so much greed, so much obligation, so much anger that the joy that is the best, most basic part of who we are and what we are evaporates and eludes us.   

We pay a price for this loss.  We age mentally, physically and emotionally.  Our spirit dies, and we become dead inside.

A Short Guided Meditation

I invite you, then, to celebrate the brilliant fullness of summer, and in the spirit of then harvesting your innate capacity to experience – even generate – joy, to join me in the following guided meditation to experience My Space: 

Settle back comfortably, arms and legs uncrossed, close your eyes and deepen your breath.  Count five full, deep easy breaths to yourself.
