How to Live as Love
How to Live as Love
"To be love is to live as your highest self; and to place yourself in this state by choice." - dorothy ratusny Real love is the unconditional and continuous flow of unquestionable care; (care meaning that you care about the other person’s well being and that you hold empathy and compassion towards them for situations that may cause them to suffer); that you are kind, considerate, non-judgmental; that you are respective, forgiving (that is... not allowing someone to continue to hurt you and cause harm, but forgiving as you retain healthy boundaries and choices that honour your needs and safety); and acceptance; of validating the worth of another through your appreciation and encouragement of them because within them exists the same possibility and potential that exists within you. “We all have the ability to live as love; as love in action.  It begins with a choice.  You must decide it.” - dorothy ratusny

A Time of Revolution
A Time of Revolution
This revolution is one of kindness; of certainty to our sacred calling as what we choose to do in our lives; to share our talents, to be unwavering in our cause; to be determined in our choices, to live in freedom, and to make the best choices that will honour our human spirit and will set in motion what we are grateful of.   This life and what we are being shown is wonderful.  When we can get past what feels uncomfortable, we can remind our self of the inherent beauty in what we may appreciate, and in what we choose.

Why the World Needs More Compassion
Why the World Needs More Compassion
Compassion is how you express sentiment for another living being who is less fortunate or suffering. Compassion is how we form and uphold emotional connection; it is how we feel care and love from another, and from our self when we direct compassion inward.  When you feel compassion, you open yourself to witness 'light'; light that emerges after sadness and suffering; light that mends and heals and grows your capacity to feel and be of more light, more freedom, and ease. Here, I explain why we all need to become better at expressing compassion to others, and to ourselves; and how you can begin to do so now.  Namaste!! xo

This Is a Self-Love Movement
This Is a Self-Love Movement
In this episode, I've been inspired to share what I am naming The Self-Love Movement; because we all need to reclaim self-love; we need to understand what it means and we need to live it - as one solution for growing our confidence and self-worth and for being willing to live self-sustainably and of our ‘truth’; and in the present moment because this is how we witness our innate happiness. Join me in this episode as I walk you through a beautiful experience of accessing this state of awareness; a state of love that will empower you to live true to yourself, and mobilize you to have the best outcomes because you are in the right mindset; you are happy, peaceful, content and grateful.  This is a practice of being loving, directed towards yourself.  Namaste!!  xo dorothy

How to Reclaim Your Life
How to Reclaim Your Life
What changes have you been seeking? As the world is slowly restarting to a different hum; and a different message of hope and liberation, there is a definite need for us all to be more conscientious of each other, to be more self-aware of our choices and our actions, and how we might take greater responsibility for what change is needed - for ourselves and for the world. Here are the questions that you need to ask yourself.... Video link resource: How you may reclaim your life. https://youtu.be/fGfC6jtAOu8 Namaste! xo dorothy

Why You Must Be Self-Reliant
Why You Must Be Self-Reliant
TRUTH SERUM: There will continue to be uncertainty. You must become certain about what you want and how you wish to live your life.  A-HA MOMENTS: This time is a time of freedom – freedom from what has held you hostage from yourself. What you will choose to be a new set of practices and beliefs that you will hold; will allow you to rebirth yourself into something more, something better. PRACTICAL WISDOM: You need this time to awaken; to set in motion this new stage of your life. You already have everything that you need for this. In this episode, I share real life client stories as we discuss reliance and self-responsibility; to no longer give away our power to those who are truly not responsible for it and to make new choices that will honour our integrity and authenticity over greed, ego, and a fragile and fear-based model that has up to now dictated to us what we should do. I hope this episode inspires you to be self-reliant; and to choose with greater autonomy what will allow you to feel, innate happiness.  Namaste! xo

Unleash Yourself
Unleash Yourself
It is most fitting at this time to share this - this prose.  It was written two years to the day that I am recording.  It fits beautifully with what we are all called to do at this time; to awaken our senses; to step into a greater consciousness that we might uphold for every decision, every action, every thought that we hold.   It is each one of us that chooses whether we will live from our heart and with this to embrace all of our perfect nature; to rise up; to meet our self in this perfect state as pureness of thought, without the conditions that we have once placed onto our self and with using our free will to always choose from our heart, of what is right and true - to live a bountiful and beautiful heaven on earth, here and now. For wherever you are on your path at this time and as you continue to uphold the most sacred values; let this message inspire your journey, now and always... Namaste!

Escaping Abuse: Why We Stay, How to Leave, 4 Strategies to End the Cycle
Escaping Abuse: Why We Stay, How to Leave, 4 Strategies to End the Cycle
In this episode I want to remind you of the power that you hold to choose for yourself the right and best relationship, and how you can stay clear of relationships that are damaging and abusive. I also wish to illustrate how living with abuse, perpetuates a cycle of dependency and the eradicating of one's self-worth and sense of self; and I will share the story of my client 'Beth', and the four strategies to prevent you from finding yourself in an abusive relationship and enable you to leave. TRUTH SERUM:  There are many forms of abuse. Abuse is, by definition, the mistreatment of another; whether intentional or as a facet of one's consistent actions that one may not be self-aware of. A-HA MOMENTS:  Abuse in the traditional variant forms that we categorize as physical, emotional, and psychological all originate with one's thoughts and beliefs; that is what one tells one's self and justifies in being discriminating, hurtful, and disrespectful towards another, and how one's misguided intentions can lead into a situation and a relationship that is both damaging and abusive.   PRACTICAL WISDOM:  We know that relationships that are unhealthy and abusive are also complex and complicated. We stay in these relationships for different reasons; whether because we have convinced ourselves that there is something of benefit to us in staying; or we anticipate the enormous effort it will take to execute our decision to leave. We stay because we tell our self that the "relationship is really not that bad"; that maybe "we deserve how we are being mistreated"; and in some cases, we may tell ourselves "we don't care." If you are listening to this episode because something deep within you is yearning for help, guidance, and perhaps validation of what you know but have been afraid to believe, I hope that in listening, you will allow your inner voice to become louder, to rely on it for what you know is true and to be willing to care for yourself first with the knowledge that you are not alone, that you will get through this; that you will feel better, happier, and stronger; and that if and when you choose it, you can and will find the right partner and the love that you truly want. If you need my help, please reach out to me: dorothy@dorothyratusny.com Namaste! xo

Your Life and How You Live Begins Now (Long)
Your Life and How You Live Begins Now (Long)
In the recent weeks and months we have witnessed much political up-cries as our leaders are being asked - demanded - that they consider how policies and political influence needs to stand for what matters; that they need to think far into the future. It is not only the economy that needs an uplift but perhaps more so, it is how we think. We must open our minds to what needs to change is at the forefront of everything.   Gravely the violence, the prejudice, the racism, the fear and the lack of knowledge that we have witnessed is but a microcosm of what needs to change; of what is changing.  Our lives stand for something; they matter.  They inspire and drive conviction; to be a never-ending voice that teaches our children; that retrains our way of thinking and the beliefs that we hold so that we may all live in light; no longer in the darkness that has shrouded our minds for so long. This is our global awakening; this is our new world. This is your opportunity, your time, your free will that will choose what will be. When you feel uncertain; and there is much that is still unknown, remember to decide what is in your power to choose; to reclaim, to live awake, because in this time everything that you have ever wanted and desired now is before you. It is of your choosing. Only you can choose this. You are not alone, everyone has their own path to walk forward in. The life that you once lived is forever changed. You embrace the present. You may witness all of the moments of your life as you look forward and feel grateful of these many joys that are possible because you choose this. Everything becomes significant. Everything becomes a possibility and something worth asking for. Your life and what you live begins now.  Choose your life. Live in peace. Begin this now. I hope that you will have the experience of listening to the full episode; there is much here to inspire and uplift and to help you set your course into the future.  Namaste! xo

Kindness As Love + a Tribute to George Floyd
Kindness As Love + a Tribute to George Floyd
There is something else that we must look at now.  Now as we continue to navigate life; as we return to some of what has been absent; finding our way to a new and better way of life even as some aspects of this may take time to become what we are used to.  There is something more that we are being called to examine; to change if these beliefs conflict with what we know to be the right choice. Right now in a world torn by differing beliefs; beliefs that have been taught to us by those who also did not have all of the right information; those who may have been living in fear, unknowing of what it truly means to live with your heart open and to be of kindness first and foremost unto yourself.   Because when we learn how to treat ourselves kindly; how to change the thoughts that we want to hold that are remarkable; that instill within us the examples of love and compassion; of resiliency; and inner strength; of teaching ourselves and our children how to live as our inherent goodness and to always do the right thing.  Then we become a home, a community, a nation and a planet in which amongst our differences we share the commodity of loving grace; of treating each other with dignity, respect, kindness - for beneath the colour of our skin, the clothes we wear, beneath the thoughts that we might hold or our learned beliefs; we are all of the same physical structure; our hearts beat - we walk and run, we can use our hands to form the universal symbol of peace or to disrespect another.   What we are reminded of in the world at this time is a global pandemic of a different nature and one that is equally important. We are reminded of how intolerance, rage, suffering, violence... spreads. It is a disease - a virus of its own nature, if allowed to persist.   This brave new world that we are being thrust forward into is a world that must be founded on the protection of love and kindness. Kindness is Love. -enjoy this and with it, the remembering of kindness as love.. xo dorothy

Even as this episode of Life Coaching WISDOM is released months into this global pandemic of 2020, the messages that I share are omnipresent and incredibly important for when you listen; because now is the future.   A-HA MOMENTS:  For however you have been living your life up until this moment, you must realize that you have been choosing your future.  PRACTICAL WISDOM: What I want to emphasize and inspire at this time and in this brave new world that we are all being “rebirthed” into; is the absolute need for greater conscious choice; to wield the freedom that you hold, to choose what you deeply desire; and to live fearless of this; because you now understand that you are able to have everything that you have always wanted. TRUTH SERUM:  What you have been wanting and waiting for is before you now. Now is the time to take new action. This time is unprecedented in our lives; and with it is the possibility for change; and new beginnings of consciousness and loving-kindness for all living beings. Now is the time to set in motion what you have been wanting for so long. Now is your time.

How Will I Use This Time to Change My Life for the Better?
How Will I Use This Time to Change My Life for the Better?
For some this means a radical change in how you will think about and live life; and for others it will be more of a fine tuning; of what we have already begun, to ensure that we do not stop, that we follow through; that we fight for – that is we decide and never give up on – what is truly wanted. In this episode of Life Coaching Wisdom, we dive deep; we do some serious questioning to reveal what is most important for you right now.  Because once you have decided what is most important; what you truly want for your life; and for how you want to be in your life; then you can slay it; you can make it happen. Much love to you all!  xo dorothy

Why You Need to Unplug from Technology for a Day. The Science of How a Digital Detox Can Improve Your Life.
Why You Need to Unplug from Technology for a Day. The Science of How a Digital Detox Can Improve Your Life.
What is the experience of a day in your life - best enjoyed - without the comfort and luxury of the internet, phone calls, emails, texts, and anything else that keeps you tightly enmeshed in the matrix?  How will you live off the grid for an entire 24 hours?  Why would you want to? One of the greatest contributors to our global levels of worry, stress, and sadness is the result of not having time alone with your self; whether in a solitude activity or for several moments of regular inner contemplation and reflection.  You may experience a degree of discomfort that you find released - soothed from choosing to use your unplugged time to be with you - and to establish a nourishing and positive relationship with your inner self. Join me in this Life WISDOM episode for the science of why you need to unplug.  Let me know how doing so has helped you to feel more 'connected with yourself'.  Namaste! xo

A Time of Rebirth and Awakening; of Love of Humanity and the Earth
A Time of Rebirth and Awakening; of Love of Humanity and the Earth
As we are in a time in which the world is continuing to pause; to take a step or two back to hold our breath as we anticipate the future, this is a perfect time to consider that we are living in a time of spiritual awakening. For this we must look within for our 'right' knowing; to remember how our individual actions affect each another and the planet; and to honour and respect all living beings as we live in peace. This episode of Life Coaching WISDOM offers a guided journey; one that invites you to open your mind and heart; to witness your inner wisdom and to ask the questions of yourself; of how you may 'rebirth' into this new life we are being called to live. As you listen, you may wish to record some notes as you answer the questions, and as you witness the presence of your highest self in communication with you. Namaste! xo

This episode of Life Coaching WISDOM offers a guided journey; one that invites you to open your mind and heart; to witness your inner wisdom and to ask the questions of yourself; of how you may 'rebirth' into this new life we are being called to live. As you listen, you may wish to record some notes as you answer the questions, and as you witness the presence of your highest self in communication with you. Namaste! xo

Reclaim Your Life: the Path to Living Awakened
Reclaim Your Life: the Path to Living Awakened
My client Mackenzie described it as a flash of light - and the feeling of being wide awake; able to witness herself in the true aspect of who she is. This is called 'awakening' - moments of lucidity and clarity - where, as Mackenzie describes - she is able to see everything as it is and instantly is aware that the opposite - the absence of clarity - is akin to "being in a coma". Sometimes referred to as 'sleep walking through life'; at first glance it would appear that we are functioning in a reasonably effective way, but when we look deeper, we see that there is much that we are doing on automatic pilot; without contemplating, without being attentive to how we feel and without asking our self if the choices that we continue to make are indeed the right ones for who we are. When you are not fully present and awake, you actually forgo your free will choice and you are not able to live your awakened ideals. In this episode of Life Coaching WISDOM we take a closer look at how to live awake and how you can reclaim your life.  Please join me.  I love this story of Mackenzie and her 'awakening'.  Namaste! xo

From Fear to Love - Three Best Practices to Alleviate Fear and Live as Love
From Fear to Love - Three Best Practices to Alleviate Fear and Live as Love
Here, I share with you the research-based knowledge of how to alleviate fear and how you may choose to live as love in far more moments of your life.   Namaste!  xo In this health pandemic, there is a lot of information that can heighten your fear; the overloading of information some of it inaccurate, some of it truthful; can still cause you to feel fearful when you have not previously. Sometimes, as you seek to have all of the right knowledge and information; focusing on the finding and having of facts can cause hypervigilence - acute focus on this problem even if your facts can now offer ideas for what you need to do. It is only when you are fixated on a problem that worries surface: your mind directed towards what is unwanted and what causes you to suffer. Let this help you!   love dorothy

The Holiday Episode: Practical Wisdom for Living the Magic, Wonder, and True Meaning of the Holidays
The Holiday Episode: Practical Wisdom for Living the Magic, Wonder, and True Meaning of the Holidays
Are you like so many others who do their best to recreate the magical moments of holidays past?  Do you imagine yourself at a particular moment in time during childhood where everything was enchanting; surreal, and as if you were living in a fantasy?  We tend to go to moments of our childhood as they evoke imagination and powerful imagery that immediately places us back in that time of innocence, of wonder, and of belief in the magic of the holidays.  Do you think back to memories that evoke pure joy, laughter, and fun, so that you can feel those precise feelings now? As a child, did you anticipate what gifts were waiting for you under the tree on Christmas morning or what you might receive on every night of Hanukkah?  As an adult, I am going to encourage you to decide how you will curate magic and wonder by design so that you can experience joy, anticipation, excitement, and of course love because you've opened your heart to it; and because of the actions that you've taken to feel magic through the acts of giving, of being grateful, of loving kindness and of nurturing your relationships with your loved ones. It matters that you find and feel joy in the real meaning of the holidays and not simply because you found your way to crossing everyone off of your shopping list and its still two weeks before Christmas.  In this episode we dive into the best strategy for curating the magic of the holidays; and for experiencing joy in the anticipation of new experiences and shared laughter and fun.  I might even suggest that you will want to continue using these 3 best practices as "the" strategy for how you live life!  I wish you all much love, peace, and joy now... and always!  Namaste! xo

How Life Mirrors Your Inner Existence (Full Episode - 15 Min)
How Life Mirrors Your Inner Existence (Full Episode - 15 Min)
Life can become a series of moments that we live in search of what will 'make' us feel good (aka 'happy', 'joyful', 'alive') rather than living life as a series of moments that we easily enjoy (and relish) because we are living connected to our inner happiness - which is always present - always accessible - always a part of us.  'Happiness is Your Inherent State' The next time that you find yourself 'in search of' something because of how you want to feel, consider that life mirrors existence.  That "something" that you have convinced yourself you need - becomes an even better experience because of your current state of being.  Life that is lived with appreciation and 'thanks'; with gratitude - fuels abundance and joy. Let this episode of Life Coaching WISDOM inspire you to live your life full on; playful with the knowledge that what you think about and imagine become the outer reality you live.  Namaste! xo

The Two Reasons Why You Must Always Be Truthful and Honest
In this episode of Life Coaching Wisdom, I share the two most important reasons why you need to always tell the truth - and especially when it is not easy to do so.  I also offer strategies and 'scripts' that you can use to make your job of being wholly honest and truthful - much easier!   Honesty and truthfulness are not the same thing.  Being honest means that you do not tell lies.  Being truthful means actively making known all of the full truth of a matter.  When you are truthful, you are honestly expressing how you perceive or feel about something. Being both honest and truthful allows you to have meaningful and authentic relationships - with yourself, and others. I hope that this recording will inspire you to practice honesty and truthfulness in all ways in your life. Namaste!! xo

The Power of Honesty in Your Love Relationship (Full Version)
The Power of Honesty in Your Love Relationship (Full Version)
Honesty serves as a foundation for mutual trust with the person that you've chosen to be in relationship with - and to nourish the experience of being able to feel heard and understood as your partner honours your truth.  Honesty does not preclude having disagreements but it does set the tone for a respectful exchange of truthful ideas and thoughts that serve to deepen one's knowledge about the other. Here I share one couple's journey into their greatest challenge of self honesty and truth - and how it led them back into their authentic self - and to be happy again.

Who You Are Is Not What You Have Been Taught to Believe
Who You Are Is Not What You Have Been Taught to Believe
“Who you are is not what you have been taught to believe.  Who you are is the most incredible being of love.” For whatever behaviour (or belief) is unwanted and yet appears to be so deeply ingrained, ask yourself, “Where did I learn this?” I ask clients to trace their problematic behaviour, belief system, or unhealthy habit - back to an earlier time – a time in which they first remembered observing this behaviour in another person, or - if applicable - of their self.  I call this "a point of origin.”  The purpose of looking for the origin of a behaviour or core belief is to establish a starting place from which you may begin to understand that this behaviour (attitude, belief, or thought pattern) is not entirely of your making.  To find its originating point means that it was learned and therefore may be changed or unlearned and replaced with something of your choosing.  We learn so much about our self by reflecting on what we have been taught to believe.

Forgiveness Begins with Your Heart Open
Forgiveness Begins with Your Heart Open
When you hold the intention of forgiveness, it begins within you a gentle movement - a gentle urging of release; of letting go of what has kept you in the throws of suffering for a time. The intentional act of forgiveness will require your heart to open; to feel a 'letting go' of what you have held and harboured for so long.  In being willing to forgive all of what has caused you to suffer, you begin the important healing of your body, your mind, your soul - and you realign with your highest self - the perfection of what you are as energy.  Music Credit:  Wave Source, 'Wave Dream'

Building a More Confident You
Building a More Confident You
Do you sometimes struggle to feel confident about yourself?  Do you at times, dismiss what is positive - focusing instead on self critical or self loathing inner dialogue?  Do you often compare yourself with others that you deem to be more successful or better in some way? In order to build a more confident YOU, it's important to be able to witness all of who you are - from a perspective of loving kindness.  We can all benefit from using kinder words in how we think of our self.  We can practice speaking words of encouragement and kindness to our self - and holding belief in who we are as being more than good enough, capable, intelligent, and any other adjective that describes what is true rather than what we might currently tell our self. In this episode of Life Coaching WISDOM, I offer the strategies for building a more confident version of yourself, and for how to practice loving kindness directed inward. If you would like my help in building greater confidence and self esteem, please reach out to me - let me help.  Namaste!  xo MUSIC:  Justin Woodward & John Murphy, 'sunshine adagio'

There Will Always Be Something...  (Yet This Is the 'Something' That You Must Do Each Day)
There Will Always Be Something... (Yet This Is the 'Something' That You Must Do Each Day)
The greatest moments are those in which you can be present as you are doing whatever you love; as you are in the presence of this - and attentive to how it feels to be so privileged, so blessed - that you are nowhere but right here - in this moment; in the enjoyment of this moment - in the experience of what you love most - of what is so blissful.   The secret is to find many of these blissful moments; spontaneously as you become aware of them - as they penetrate your being; as they offer insight and wisdom and glory.   It is these moments that you are fully present in - that serve you; that excite you; that inspire you with beautiful wisdom and glory that you hold as moments of greatness; of pleasure, of joy - moments that remind you of your ability to be present with all that is - as it is.

This Is You... Being Love
This Is You... Being Love
being love is a choice.  it is both a deliberate practice and your natural state (of being).

In this life coaching episode, join me for a reflective and inspirational look at what it means to be love.  namaste xo I invite you to experience the first three sacred lessons of my online course, being love as my gift.  It will give you the necessary ideas and help to begin a journey of what it means to be loving towards yourself and others, to practice self care, and to be kindness and love outwardly even when you may not feel positive or happy.  You will learn how to return to a state of divine spiritual love that originates from within, so that you can be this in your life - and in ways that will foster loving relationships with others.  Sign up at: the school of wisdom https://www.dorothyratusny.theschoolofwisdom

What a Father Needs to Be
What a Father Needs to Be
Sharing with you the 8 sacred habits of fatherhood.... What is most important for any father to know is that your ability to parent is reflective in who you are first as a human being. Fatherhood will teach you so much about yourself; it will illuminate your strengths and your character and it will also highlight your insecurities and your weaknesses.  It will require of you to be self responsible; to lead by example - to impress not by your words but because of what you consistently do and how you are with others. In my work with couples, with fathers who are single parents, and fathers who are living with new partners and their children in blended families - there is always the single most important challenge of being your best self.  Children as they grow will challenge you to do this as their needs and demands change.  Seeing your children as the catalyst to help you become the best version of who you are - and without allowing yourself to become caught up in ego - of needing or demanding undue respect simply because you are in a position of authority.  Your children will respect and love you because of your consistent kindness and fairness in how you treat them and because you are willing to share your knowledge and wisdom - respectfully.

No One Can Hurt You Unless You Allow It
No One Can Hurt You Unless You Allow It
When we hurt it is because we have allowed someone to affect us negatively; to cause us harm, to feel doubt, fear, insecurity, or discouragement, when really - each time that we experience someone's negativity (their harsh words, their criticism, their anger, their fear, their insecurities, their pain, their lack of knowledge) - they are simply showing us their reaction, their choice, their feelings and thoughts in that particular moment. Your decision must be to step back, to step away from taking on whatever hurts may be directly or indirectly pointed at you.  You may choose to offer a kind word and lend your ear - and then to return to your inner knowing; to knowing that you are remarkable, you are perfect as you are - you are a work in progress as you choose it.  You are the loving inner being and the kindness that flows from this. I hope this episode of Life Coaching WISDOM helps you feel empowered to no longer allow yourself to remain stuck in being hurt.  Namaste! in gratitude and peace, dorothy xo

A Mother's Day Inspirational Message: of Changing Roles, Healing the Past, and Unconditional Acceptance.
A Mother's Day Inspirational Message: of Changing Roles, Healing the Past, and Unconditional Acceptance.
My client and her mother are not so different from other Mothers and Daughters. As I sit before both of them I feel hopeful. A daughter willing to enter into therapy to work on gaining closeness and understanding with her mother and to overcome the hurt of comments and past wounds that she has carried largely in silence. A mother, not knowing what it means to live in shame and self-loathing, nor to be misunderstood by those who are supposed to love you the most, is open and willing to be part of a process that she has little knowledge of, and certainly no idea of where it will lead. What makes my clients' story so interesting is the level of commitment that each woman brings into the therapy session that highlights the value they place on one another – on being a family, on improving the way in which they communicate so that words are not spoken without consideration of the other, and perhaps the ultimate hope of healing the past so that there can be a new way to experience one another – a way that they both can trust in. Please join me in this special edition of Life Coaching WISDOM.  Namaste! xo dorothy MUSIC: Hammock, 'the silence'

These are the words that can help you to feel better even when you do not think that feeling better is possible; even when you have been hurt so much; and most important - even when others may show or tell you otherwise - be in charge of how you feel.  Remind yourself of what is true; rather than believe in another.  Believe in yourself.  You are the one person that needs to do this most - regardless of what anyone else says or does - it matters most what you tell yourself.

This Is Forgiveness
This Is Forgiveness
Forgiveness is a deliberate power that you wield - releasing yourself from suffering - relinquishing the need to make others responsible for how you feel - acknowledging that others are not in control of your life - of the worth that you feel, - of the freedom that you hold. Forgiveness is upholding your power; living your truth; acknowledging the freedom to love unconditionally - In forgiveness - you remind yourself that if others hurt you - it is because being hurtful or unkind is also how they are with themselves - at least in this moment - and it is not a reflection of you.   Experience the partial (3 min) or full (7 min) life coaching episode version.  Thank you so much for listening!  May this help you in completing forgiveness in your life.  Namaste!  With much love, dorothy   Music: Carbon Based Lifeforms, 'Frog'

Knowing Your (Right) Path - Your Purpose
Knowing Your (Right) Path - Your Purpose
For wherever you are along your life path, making decisions with confidence helps you to feel good about your future. Each decision you make with confidence helps you to feel reassured, and excited about what you are putting in place – for now – for the future, and to reaffirm what you know about yourself. How do you know with certainty what your right path is? How do you know when you are making a ‘right’ decision? Is it a feeling? A certain knowing? When you know that something is right, how do you know? Does a 'right' decision feel different? What does it feel like in your body? Do you feel a certain confidence about the decision that reassures you it will be the right thing? If ever there was a checklist for how to make the best decisions for your life, I'd like to offer it here.  Let this checklist be a guiding tool to help you in making all of your decisions - and for trusting in your inner knowing to offer you the ‘right’ guidance and wisdom. Join me in the full episode (7+min) for a list of checklist questions to help you make all of the best and right decisions for your life. Let this list help you in all areas of your life.

Learning Unconditional Love
Learning Unconditional Love
Unconditional love is the purest form of love. It is love that does not require anything in return. When you are unconditionally loving, you inspire and evoke others to be loving.  Learning unconditional love means being a source of love; it means allowing your heart to be open in willingness to be loving and kind - to not be afraid of getting hurt because you love so deeply and fully - since you know that you will continue to honour your needs and to uphold healthy boundaries that protect and cherish you.

It Matters What You Say
It Matters What You Say
Communication is everything.  Yet how can you become better at speaking your truth so that you can reveal the true essence of what you need to say - what you must say - without hurting another, without causing damage to a relationship - while still giving yourself a voice - a stand - an opinion?  It matters what you say. In this episode of Life Coaching WISDOM, I share three necessary strategies to help you become more effective in your communication. You can be fully clear and deliberate in your words, whilst still remembering that you are most effective in what you say when you can do so with loving kindness, respect, and care in what you say - and how you say it.

Are You Having a Radical Change Moment?
Are You Having a Radical Change Moment?
Are there things you've been contemplating action on that are long overdue? Has life recently felt like a series of repeated efforts? of repetitive experience burdened in responsibility, commitment, out of requirement, cause, or loyalty? Has life become a series of "tasks" that no longer feel meaningful? Have you lost touch with what brings you happiness, what you can look forward to...what matters most? A radical change begins with an inner awakening - an inward focus - that helps you to reflect and then decide what your true needs are.  It is then up to you to determine whether you will honour and satisfy these needs - or simply "hope" that everything "will take care of itself" - all by itself. Please enjoy and be inspired by how you may thrive on change, and then choose it - be in control of it! Namaste!  xo dorothy

True Beauty Is Who You Are
True Beauty Is Who You Are
There will always be the desire and pursuit of beauty as seeking some ideal or perfection; based on what constitutes for someone - what is beautiful. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder -- which also reminds you that you have the free will to choose what you will see as beautiful; and to also look for the beauty that is innately present in all living beings and not simply what is "pleasant to look at". In this episode of Life Coaching WISDOM, be inspired by the idea of what 'true beauty' actually is - from where it 'originates', and how we "are beautiful" whenever we are kind in action, loving and generous in spirit, willing to offer service without conditions, and compassionate in nature. namaste! xo dorothy

Defining Healthy Self-Regulation for Anxiety Relief + 'Spoken Word' Guided Meditation
Defining Healthy Self-Regulation for Anxiety Relief + 'Spoken Word' Guided Meditation
Healthy self regulation is the ability to be attentive to what you need in any given moment. It includes identifying what you want-how you want to feel-and your decision for optimizing this within the context of what is the best possible choice. When you feel anxious, when you experience stress – you inherently seek out ways in which to calm and soothe yourself.  While you use various forms of self regulation daily to bring yourself back into - homeostatic balance – your body independent of your direct efforts – always attempts to self regulate; to ensure that you are functioning at an optimal level. In this episode of Life Coaching WISDOM, discover the importance of self-regulation, what constitutes 'healthy' vs 'unhealthy' self-regulation and take inventory of whether your 'habits' are bringing you balance - or moving you further 'out of' balance.  Join me for the 'spoken word' guided meditation at the end for deeper self-reflection and the experience of self-regulation for relieving anxiety and experiencing calm and inner peace. Namaste!!   xo dorothy

Let Your Emotions Be a Source of Wisdom
Let Your Emotions Be a Source of Wisdom
Most of the time we are not aware of what thoughts we hold, but we are more aware of our feelings. When we interpret situations as negative or stressful we will feel emotions that create sadness, anxiety, agitation or another form of suffering. Without fully understanding why we feel the way we do, we can remain lodged in our emotions for a time – often hopeless to knowing how we might change these so that we can feel better. If you begin to pay closer attention to how you feel – and to identify your emotions including the reasons for why you feel as you do; then you will make great strides in understanding yourself better.  Join me as I share three helpful practices for regaining balance; and for experiencing harmony between your outer and inner worlds - allowing the wisdom of your emotions to guide you best. Namaste!  with gratitude and love, dorothy

This Is Who I Am
This Is Who I Am
Knowing who you are is much more than knowing what your favourite foods are, or that you like to sleep in on weekends, snowboard, or play guitar. Knowing yourself is about knowing the intangible, deeper aspects of your personality, of your goals and ideals, your most personal and intimate thoughts and feelings, and of being willing to admit to yourself what is in need of change so that you can let go of anything that is holding you back from easily being even better; happier, and in love with yourself and life. Join me in this life coaching 'moment' for some inspired questions to help you discover even more about who you are...and who you are becoming.  Namaste!

Let the Mysteries of Life Pursue You
Let the Mysteries of Life Pursue You
The mysteries of life surround you. Think of your life as a magical playground of so many choices – of so much abundance and love – of the ability to do anything and everything that you want; of not overthinking things too much but rather allowing for the amazing, infinite ideas to flow into your mind – – to hold these incredible ideas and inspirations and to let them ripen – to see them through to fruition – which then helps you to carry them forward – bringing them into the material physical world.

Learning Unconditional Love
Learning Unconditional Love
Unconditional love is the purest form of love. It is love that does not require anything in return. When you are unconditionally loving, you inspire and evoke others to be loving.  Learning unconditional love means being a source of love; it means allowing your heart to be open in willingness to be loving and kind - to not be afraid of getting hurt because you love so deeply and fully - since you know that you will continue to honour your needs and to uphold healthy boundaries that protect and cherish you.

Reclaim Your Life: the Path to Living Awakened
Reclaim Your Life: the Path to Living Awakened
My client Mackenzie described it as a flash of light - and the feeling of being wide awake; able to witness herself in the true aspect of who she is. We call this, 'awakening' - moments of lucidity and clarity where, as Mackenzie describes, she is able to "see everything as it is" and instantly is aware that the opposite - the absence of clarity - is akin to "being in a coma." This gateway into the truth of what you are living is completely yours to decide upon.  You may not approve of everything that you see with eyes wide open. It is not necessary that you do. Perhaps like Mackenzie and others, who go through a myriad of emotions including sadness and regret for living so much of their life in a habitual way that rarely honoured their own needs and desires; you too may feel remorse and even self-loathing for what you are now discovering.  Please do not be in this state for long. The point of "awakening" is not to regret the past but to give yourself the opportunity and privilege of reclaiming your life; of living honest and truthful here and now. If you would like my help as you step forward, as you reclaim your truth and live authentic, please reach out to me. You can best find me here: dorothyratusny.com Namaste and much love! xo
