Stepping out of the Box

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

Since I took my break from the radio I have put all my energies into creating an Introductory workshop on the enneagram with my friend and “enneagram partner” Charlene Gowrie.

We intend for this work shop to be inventive, interactive, engaging, creative, fun.

If you are interested in learning more about the enneagram and using it as a tool and map for self discovery contact me at

Transformational Coaching with the Enneagram

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

Have you ever asked yourself any of the following questions:

  • What makes me tick?
  • Why do people not understand me?
  • Why do I say some of the things that I do?
  • Why do I act in certain ways?
  • If it makes sense to me why don’t you get it?
  • How do I get along with certain people and others I just cannot be around?
  • Why do I keep attracting the same type of relationships?
  • Why are some people so difficult?
  • What makes it difficult to get along with me?
  • What impact do I have on others?
  • коли под наем

  • How can I deepen the relationships in my life?
  • How do I experience life?

If these are just a few of the questions and thoughts that pop into your head on a daily basis you are a seeker of self knowledge.  You are interested in revealing the truth and answering the most fundamental spiritual questions “Who am I?” “Why am I here?” “What do I have to contribute?”

The Enneagram is a study of the nine different perspectives and world views.  It explains why we think what we think, see and act the way we do.  It points to specific directions for individual growth. It is an important tool for improving relationships with family, friends, and co-workers. The Enneagram is one of the most transformational and empowering tools for self-discovery. It offers a map that shows your habits of attentions, your motivations, your actions, your inner thoughts, your challenges, your gifts, desires and needs and how we limit ourselves. It helps reveal your inner story, your core beliefs, and the choices you make that create your life.

When we are able to reveal these habitual patterns and triggers we can then choose differently and so recreate and re-design a life we truly want to live.  It takes us out of the box in which we place ourselves, the box that limits us. With the information that is revealed through working with the Enneagram, we can be liberated to make more informed choices in our lives, and live more consciously, rather than living on autopilot or in the passenger’s seat. We can embrace the best of all types within ourselves.

Are you ready to make a difference in your life and those around you?

Help yourself! Get simple insights into yourself and others!

Power of Release - learning to let go

Monday, October 13th, 2008

Well this will be the final show for this season. I will begin again in January. I will be busy for the next three months, with new training, facillitating workshops, Xmas and the kids all coming home with friends.

It is so funny how the universe tests you when you make a decision, just to ensure that you are commited and serious about the decision you have made. This month when I decided it would be the last all of a sudden I have a flood of emails from fabulous people wanting to be a guest on Empowering Space.  I am sticking to my decision and so have written to all inviting them to be guests in January.

So naturally I thought the best show to end with would be the Power of Release - learning to let go. I have decided to have two guests to share the space with us.

My first guest is Buz McGuire a friend, husband, father, business owner, writer, entrepreneur, bank director, forward thinker, counselor, life-student and the director of the Viral Happiness Expansion Initiative.

He has studied positive-living and self-development for over twenty-five years. During that time, Buz has owned and operated retail stores, been in the residential and commercial rental business, taught classes, served on various civic, church, and business boards, and counseled people in their business and personal lives.

Over the past three years, he has dedicated himself to developing the thinking and material that has become the Viral Happiness Expansion Initiative.

My second guest has been a guest before and I am thrilled to have her back Amanda Goldstun.  Amanda coaches and helps others to find their own GREATNESS. In 2003 she developed a series of relaxation audios and workbooks called, “Clear Limiting Beliefs, Creative Problem Solver, Create Your Ideal Day and Develop Your Intuition in Business.”

The self-development work Amanda undertook led to the realization that the biggest obstacles to success for many people are old, unhelpful beliefs about money and success. Amanda found that most beliefs can be changed quickly and easily, and coaches people on “how to release Limiting Beliefs in a couple of hours”.

She is based in the UK, but with the wonders of technology, she has clients all over the world, who have benefited from her “Clear Limiting Beliefs” programme.

Amanda’s aim for her clients is to quickly and easily identify and clear major limiting beliefs, so they can find their GREATNESS within and be free to soar to whatever heights they choose.

Join Amanda, Buz and myself, Lydia Mattison at an Empowering Space, for the final show this year, Power of Release - Learning to Let Go. Thursday 16th October 2008 at 8:00pm EST.

  • What disempowering thoughts, beliefs, behaviours, fears, feelings are you willing to release this year?
  • What worries clutter your mind that you could let go today?
  • What one step could you take to de-clutter your environment, your mind, your relationships that would bring you peace?
