How to Change You in Your Family

How to Change You in Your Family

 

 Families Are Complicated

Families are complicated.  Sometimes there is great life inside our families of origin but often our families provide the necessary friction which helps us grow. The question is how to change you in your family to make peace with the friction. In this video, David looks at how to be with the friction we feel in our families of origin and offers a redefinition of creating a family of choice.

“I feel at home and safe in this group, held for who I am, because we are all there for the same reasons. The group gives me a springboard to go into my everyday life from. Then I get to return to the group, where I ground and inhabit my sense of personal evolution more and more.” L.F. San Francisco

Joy Through Integrity

Joy through Integrity

Joy Through Integrity

Have you explored what your personal living definition of integrity is?

Does the integrity you learned serve you, your family and your community?

This word is a living word. For it to work we need to keep it alive by understanding it not just taking it for granted.

To fully live in joy free from the confines that hold us back we need to align with our soulful integrity.

Choosing to live in integrity, in the essence of our greater truth, we can have self-trust because we are connected to something bigger than our conditioning. From that place of self-trust and knowing we can expand our creative capacity to live a joyful life.

In a communication with our allies/friends in love, we explored the word Integrity. Here is what they shared:

The word integrity is used often among humans to describe a fidelity of being that is generally honored. That word points to the living remembrance of that joy-filled essence that you are. Generally, people consider the word integrity to be the same as this essence. The word is simply an echo of that essence. Few engage in an inquiry of sufficient depth to actually understand what generates the word integrity.

If a person says I am integrous with the essence I am, I AM, they will begin to open a direct flow from their essence into the great truth that they are in contrast to the diminished self they think themselves to be.

The word integrity regardless of the individual lives as a crystalline form within the brain and heart of each individual. This connection to the brain and heart results in different behavioral patterns that can be perceived of as either within or outside of integrity.

Very few people understand that if they are integrous to the soul that they are they will have self-trust.

The degree to which a person can risk overcoming the environmental constraints generated within families and community that will cause the Life of integrity to expand or contract.

There is a risk inherent within the choice to grow a different version of integrity than most begin with. Changing the nature of integrity correspondingly changes a comprehension of what Will is. This is because an individual can then begin to consider their choices and the domino effect and corresponding gravity their choices make.

 Will and Choice

A willful choice produces a gravitational field that forms into structure. These structures exist within a body and are of course physicalized in the world. We desire for you all to be liberated from the extra heavy gravity that self-generated free will produces. When a person becomes integrous with their essence there is a greater capacity for love in all its forms to inform choices and change actions.

We honor and appreciate that each soul who incarnates on earth becomes a catalytic agent for the healing of free will into sacred will and they can become an expression of the integrous flow of soulful knowing that at their essence they truly are.

The Man Who Died in My Arms and What I Learned

Susan’s father, Don Perkins, and I on the surface were very different men. We were brought together out of our mutual love for Susan. And yet, in my mind we were starkly contrasted people- I, the creative educator and medical intuitive and Don an international corporate leader.

One of the great gifts Don gave me was that I absolutely learned to follow was the promptings of my heart and not the noise in my mind.

dave and donTo me it was a surprising lesson to learn from a man who was very successful in the corporate world. He was highly principled, a mentor to business leaders and a man respected for asking hard questions.

David and I were given a rare and loving gift during the month of March. We have been in the US caring for my father Donald Perkins who passed away Wednesday March 25th at the Age of 88.

We have had to cut back on our client load and workshops and want you all to know we will be back to our normal work schedule starting Wednesday April 1st.

Thank you to all who have supported us during this time so that we could be with our family.

My Father took the entire family on many amazing trips around the world. As he was dying, he decided everyone would gather for the Last Family Trip but this time we flew to Chicago to be with him

His wishes were that we celebrate and enjoy our family time together.

My Dad always liked to have a plan and to be in control and like his life he pulled off his death in great style. He didn’t want to suffer and thought it would be perfect to die in his sleep, and by golly he did just that.

Guadalupe -The Game Changer

Guadalupe -The Game Changer

About a year ago we began to have some disturbances in our neighborhood here in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico.

One morning, we discovered very large graffiti covering about 20 feet wide by 10 feet tall on an exterior wall of our house.  In addition there had been a theft at a neighbor’s house. We talked with neighbors and some thought it might be good to hire a night watchman, but no consensus was reached.

Bridging Worlds

Bridging Worlds

Nineteen years ago, our friend David Z. was on vacation in southern Colorado  with his buddy who he describes as a gray haired, Jewish, neuro-psychologist from Brooklyn. They stayed in a log cabin motel with a bar.

That night, the jukebox stopped playing and his friend asked if he could play the piano and sat down and played boogie-woogie. After one song, the place went wild. As David Z. describes, a Harley rider, with a slicked back pony tail, old fashioned tattoos, wearing an unfashionably tight t-shirt, went outside returning with a whole set of harmonicas and joined in. For David Z. these two guys couldn’t have been more different.

The New Assisted Living

The New Assisted Living

Sometimes I resist taking my own medicine.

Recently I went on a trip to the United States to obtain my permanent visa for Mexico. Even after six months of asking questions and doing research, it was never quite clear what the requirements for the visa were. So I started out with a vague sense of what I needed, a copy of practically every bank statement for the last six months and a lot of prayers.

My friend Nancy, Nancy G. Shapiro, went with me sharing the drive and so much more.  We stayed with friends of Nancy‘s in San Antonio who graciously opened their home and shared much love and humor.

Our friend Tim referred to us staying there as “the new assisted living”. We loved the re-frame.
