Kita’s Gentle Message: Presence as a Self-Checking Mechanism (Saturday, August 25, 2018)

“Try as much as possible to stay present not only to people and circumstances around you but to yourself.  As the observer of self, you have greater capacity to witness what you are thinking, saying and doing, and in doing so, to check any personal behavior that is upsetting to you.  Others may tell you post-actions or event that they are distressed by your actions.  How powerful it is to avert your own unacceptable behaviour before the fact. In this way you…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Adjust your Dial (Sunday, August 12, 2018)

“When you see more than you bargain for a big choice looms in front of you.  Either you accept what you have seen or you don’t accept it.  Accepting involves change, adjustment, growth and personal evolution. Not accepting what you’ve seen involves staying in the status quo, resisting change, being inflexible and ignoring new or different experiences. Are you going to adjust your dial or are you staying on the same station – listening to those golden oldies…

Kita’s Gentle Message: The Gift of Creating Space (Sunday, August 5, 2018)

“Any special relationship merits your attention.  You value a family member or friend highly and look to protect, preserve and hopefully nurture them.  The act of protecting someone because you care for them is a good thing. However, hovering to the point of being too close, that is, suffocating the other and their space can weaken the relationship irrevocably. Allowing your relationships space is granting them the freedom that is a necessary element of love –…

Kita’s Gentle Message: You are your Vibration (Saturday, July 28, 2018)

“More research and scientific investigation is showing the presence of energy and its manifestation not just around you but in and through you as well. You are made up of energy and its vibration – its frequency, is dictated by your thoughts. Positive thoughts create higher vibrations whereas negative ones create lower frequencies. These vibrations permeate outwards and influence people and situations around you allowing you to affect/co-create your reality. Do…

Kita’s Gentle Message: A State of Mindfulness Pre-empts Mistakes (Saturday, July 21, 2018)

“The act of hesitating before doing, of observing what we may do or how we may do something, allows us to weigh what options we have in the decisions we are about to make. Taking a breath or two and perhaps remembering what transpired in the past that brought regret can now be avoided by the sheer memory of that regret. Our mistakes teach us especially when we thoughtfully begin watching our behaviour, and learn to change the behaviour thus producing a…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Please Touch Me (Saturday, July 14, 2018)

“Please touch me for I am a human being. I need to be made to feel wanted, treasured, supported, acknowledged and affirmed in my humanness. Do not look at my frailties, limitations, drawbacks or biases.  Do not place me in a category that excludes or is fearful of touching. Approach me in all my guises; reach out and caress my skin.  Let me know I am worthwhile - that I am loved for this is the greatest gift you can give me.”…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Time Out is Time Inward (Saturday, July 7, 2018)

“You take “time out” to remove yourself from daily routine and a filled up schedule. Time out implies taking a rest from activities and responsibilities that do not allow you to enjoy your time the way you would like to.  Time out has the element of personal freedom associated with it since you have the choice of what you choose to do in that unrestricted time zone. The idea that time out is actually an opportunity to go inward in not new; what is compelling is…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Don’t Let Fear Rule You (Saturday, June 30, 2018)

“Being carried by a current can be wonderful or terrifying. How is it that being in the same body of water can evoke such a dramatically different response?  Is it because you can’t swim and the thought of deep water – current or no current – elicits panic? Is it because you can swim that your skill gives you confidence in the moving water? The bottom line is fear or lack of it: introduce the emotion of fear and even if the current you are in is friendly, you…

Kita’s Gentle Message: A Belief System is a Belief System

“We all have a belief system based on rituals, habits, convictions, cultural conditioning, rules, biases, and societal norms. Most of us like to think that what we believe is positive, based on truth, accurate and perhaps the best way to live our lives. Having thought about all this in the last while, I’ve drawn the following conclusion: no matter how well intentioned my beliefs are, they are limiting whether they are good or not so good. What exists beyond…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Wreaking Havoc Online (Saturday, June 16, 2018)

“There’s a certain amount of insulation that comes of expressing your opinion when you don’t have to do it face-to-face.  The risk of commenting is proportionally diminished to the probability of seeing the subject of your views. Nowhere has this been so aptly demonstrated as online where a wild west of words is being unleashed for every reason and for no reason at all. Like the child that covers its eyes and is convinced no one can see it, some feel strangely…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Gosh It’s Beautiful (Sunday, June 10, 2018)

“With summer descending upon this hemisphere, it’s always a pleasant surprise…no matter how many years one’s lived on this planet. After a winter of white, austere bleakness tinged with grey and a cut-like-a knife wind, the colourful blooms, soft fragrances and sunny sun – what else could I possibly call it- are like heaven on earth. A paradise to enjoy and taken in – in large luxurious gulps. As a child you were asked to stop, look and listen. Now as an adult…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Let Others Take their Journey (Saturday, June 2, 2018)

“A situation arises: you’re part of it but not the main act. You wish to help, encourage, dissuade, convince, cajole, remind, plead, ask, even participate as the main actor to alleviate the other’s discomfort.  Guess what? You can’t…no matter how much you would like to assist, this circumstance is theirs not yours. Perhaps the biggest lesson to learn in this life – You have your journey; other people have their journey. Let them take it.”…

Kita’s Gentle Message: When Happiness and Play Get Together (Saturday, May 26, 2018)

“When an art professor/philosopher and an arts publicist/happiness expert meet, here’s what happens: He was talking about really looking; I was talking about being mindful. He was talking about being in flow, and I was conversing about being in the moment. He was referring to something bigger than you or me, and I was referencing one’s spiritual context. We both agreed that creativity is a key component even though our use of words differed.  In fact, semantics…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Power Versus Force (Sunday, May 20, 2018)

“Dr. David Hawkins is acclaimed for his creation of the emotions grid where positive and negative emotions have been measured scientifically as to their vibrational strength – their frequency level. Emotions such as fear, anger, jealousy, worry are on the lower end of the scale while emotions such as love, compassion, forgiveness all emit very high frequencies. The latter are powerful with no need to push, pull, control or manipulate their surroundings; the…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Sometimes the Priority Melts Away (Saturday, May 12, 2018)

“Worrying about getting something done?  It’s been gnawing at you for a few days and is slowly filling up your entire head like water pouring into a bucket. There’s no tap to turn off the water of thoughts, and you feel helpless in trying to prevent this psychological deluge of anxiety. Then the miraculous occurs – at least it feels that way. Someone offers to lend a hand; the boss says it’s not needed after all; your family member realizes it’s now too late to…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Stand Clear and Watch It Happen (Saturday, May 5, 2018)

“The expression “get out of your own way” is very familiar to most of us who have tried to control or influence a situation. Usually it’s associated with something going wrong; something we didn’t intend but it happened anyway. I’d like to propose an alternate scenario. How about “getting out of your own way” with the intention that something wonderfully good will follow? Positive happenstance predominantly occurs when you stand clear and watch it happen. Don’t…

Kita’s Gentle Message: You are the Sum of Many Parts (Saturday, April 28, 2018)

“You are not one emotion, one title, one job, one location, one person… “What’s that you say? I’m not one person?”  This doesn’t make sense – not to the logical, five-sense world where seeing defines entity. Beyond the visible, is the “you” who is made up of non-you elements: your ancestors, in fact the whole cosmos sits in you. That’s why all your answers are already available to you within. What a relief and a gift to know you are not limited by any one…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Pick up that Bottle (Saturday, April 21, 2018)

“At first I was quite shy about it. I didn’t want anyone to see me doing it for fear of looking silly – especially if I was dressed in my business clothes.  I had started doing it when on my morning run: not many people around and not much chance of dirtying already sweaty attire. However, broad daylight would take a lot more courage until I could not ignore the obvious. The plastic bottle lying along the side of the street needed to be picked up, and I knew I…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Your Circumstances Mirror You (Saturday, April 14, 2018)

“Ever notice that when you’re feeling down, the day feels down with you? As an energetic being, you beam outwards what you are emoting internally. A vibration of self-doubt or anxiety about your job moves through the ether and attracts “like” to it – whether you want this to happen or not; whether you are conscious of this or not. You look into the universal mirror and it reflects back at you. Are you looking to see or are you looking to ignore? Mirror, mirror…
