Why We Spend Way Too Much When We Shop

Here I go about the Hemispheres again: Shopping can easily become a right hemisphere activity.

Communication Between the Right and Left Hemispheres is more Important than the Strength of the Sides!

Moments of great invention often happen “by accident.” But is it an accident? I think they are moments of wonderful communication between the two hemispheres. The moments of thinking outside the box are also such moments. When you engage in activities, listen carefully. Take time out. The HeartMark is the gesture that allows you to […]

“Anal” is Really the Left Hemisphere

Thanks to Freud, we know that there is another surface, a layer of thoughts and events that guide us that we’re not always aware of. Freud lay the foundation for searching beneath the surface.

What I know that Carl Jung didn’t

If you speak to an economist, he’ll tell you it’s all economics. If you speak to a psychologist, she’ll say it’s all psychology. And if you ask an art major, he’ll say it’s all art… And so on. Each college student who majors in the field of their choice begins to see the world defined […]

Creativity within Limits:

In ballet class, while doing bar work, we memorized routines set to music.  The music was divided  into four parts, and each part was divided into four as well.  A responsible routine allowed the leg to use its muscles in each of the four directions of the body.  We had four chances to warm up […]

Creativity with Boundaries:

Creativity seems limitless.  It’s quite infinite in fact.  However, creativity does exist within rules.  It has some boundaries.  For example, I can make an infinite amount of heart mandalas.  But for a Heart Mandala Game Book, I have to choose a set of 3-5 fixed sizes of hearts, and keep all the hearts the same shape […]

Heart Mandala Rewards:

I hope the Heart Mandalas can bring beauty to someone else out there.  I recommend cutting them out and feeling them in your hand.  Children can feel the magic of creating beauty on their own.  It is very satisfying.  Children can give parents Heart Mandalas as thank you’s to show their appreciation. Parents can hand […]

OCD–and the Mandala Remedy:

The variety in nature is overwhelming (and beautiful at the same time.)  I see varieties in species, styles of cooking, materials—the potential variety in this list alone could be too much for me.  I find a relief, a cleansing, in forming HeartPatternsTM such as the Heart Mandalas. TM  When I draw a particular heartflower, I […]
