MA-losophy in France: Dance to the Rythym

I will have a dozen or so blogs about my trip to France in the Summer of 2013.  Expect the MA-losophy style while also getting tips that you may be able to use when traveling with family in Europe (in my case with 11 people total) and my ability to maintain my sanity (most of […]

MA-losophy in France: Day 1 and Keeping My Cool?

I will have a dozen or so blogs about my trip to France in the Summer of 2013.  Expect the MA-losophy style while also getting tips that you may be able to use when traveling with family in Europe (in my case with 11 people total) and my ability to maintain my sanity (most of […]

MA-losophy: Creating Something to Look Forward To

Dog walking, common dialogue usually begins with “Is your dog friendly?” A positive head nod makes for joyful dogs sniffing each others’ genitals, tails dancing, maybe some french kissing, and then idle conversation begins between owners. This day I began with, “Wow,” your dog has a beautiful coat!” She replied, “You should have seen her […]

MA-losophy: Do as I Do?

When traveling by airplane, before lifting-off the stewards give a standard lesson on safety: if oxygen masks drop from the ceiling of the plane put the mask on yourself prior to putting one on your child(ren). What a powerful symbol as a parent: Care for yourself so that you are able to care for your […]

When it Comes to Cultural Norms Just Call Me Crazy

I can’t tell you how many clients (in my mind over matter practice) think they’re crazy because they believe someone else has the authority to put the stake in the ground called “normal.” Many believe that the media is responsible for labels that evolve around a people or group, but I’m going to approach this […]

Missed Understandings: Breaking the Language Codes to Create More Harmony

I received a group email and asked to be removed from the e-list; the business associates feelings were hurt.  I hadn’t read the message… figured it was another event announcement… it was in a similar format as past business communications… a family member was ill. I showed up for an appointment on time, but I […]

What’s my purpose?

A movement is swirling that says the world is coming to an end; as soon as this year, maybe 2012, but many are set in this apocalyptic stone.  These thoughts have put people in a state of panic, and worse a state of depression saying, “What’s the point?  Why am I doing anything at all […]

If the Water Runs Dry

I’m looking at some new writing styles, and considering this format for my next book in the “Mainstream Metaphysical Mom” series (you can see my first two books in the series at http://www.michellepayton.com/Michelle-Payton-Books.htm).  This is one of my childhood stories.  Let me know what you think.  I will be teaching a class on “bibliotherapy”/journal processing […]

It’s Draining Breaking the Enabler Chain

My husband, youngest and I went out of town for one night. Our son (18 in five months) stayed home. I received a call at 10:30pm (the night we are out of town) from a neighbor that said there were numerous cars in our driveway (note that he was forewarned that guests were out of […]

What if someone “detests” the things you do?

When I moved, to get to know more people, I went to many mainstream and conscious living networking gatherings. Some gatherings can be tough at times because what I do can be controversial – Hypnotherapy, EFT, NLP, Astrology, Numerology and Birth Order – and I can take some negative hits every now and again. When […]
