Game Change Kate and Henare O’Brien

admininspirations on relationshipLeave a Comment

I recently attended the Game Change Live event presented by Kate and Henare O’Brien. You know, I’ve never seen anything like it. I have attended tons of self-development workshops and business training seminars, from Tantra, to breath work, to finding your life’s purpose, to creating amazing retreats, etc. But this one was special.   Mainly because of who Kate and Henare are. It was a show; a very entertaining and soul moving show, but so authentic.  It was as if Henare acted, but at the same time, he was not acting. His essence moved him in all sorts of entertaining and deeply exposing directions. I was mesmerised. I couldn’t take my eyes off of the stage. In what other ways … Read More

The Difference Between A Weak Man And A Strong Man

adminself-developmentLeave a Comment

What do you think is a difference between a strong and a weak man? Or is there such  a thing as a weak man? Jason Gaddis defines  a weak man as the one who doesn’t want to take any responsibility for what’s happening in the relationship, blames the woman for all the problems and eventually runs away. In contrast, strong man raises to the occasion and owns up to his contribution to the relationship. I actually think it’s more about courage, than strength. I can be shaking of fear, and still have the courage to see the influence I have on my relationship dynamics. But then, all of us have different journeys and some of us might need to go … Read More

Commitment benefits

admininspirations on relationshipLeave a Comment

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” William Hutchinson Murray … Read More

You just had an argument. What to do? How to stop arguments from destroying the intimacy…   Scan your body. Where do you feel tension? Do you clench your hands? How are your jaws feeling? If you are tense, you are in a defensive mode and that’s not the place to have a conversation from. Step out. Physically create distance with your partner. Then scan your body and breathe into the parts that feel tense. Move your arms, jaws, pelvis and breathe deeply into your belly and hips. Breathe into your heart and feel gratitude for the sun, your life, your breath. Do you feel calmer and more relaxed now? Or do you need to go for a walk, talk to … Read More
