Friday Photo

Today's Friday Photo comes from Tanzania, Africa. It was as if these beautiful creatures were forming a roadblock, perhaps the male was just protecting his herd or perhaps they are just curious about us. You can interpret it in many ways, but all could apply to resistance to change...........

Today's Friday Photo comes from San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala. I almost missed this person at the end of the dock as I was watching the sun come up on Lake Atitlan. A perfect picture for a thoughtful quote. I'm curious - what thoughts are you choosing that limit you?

Today's Friday Photo comes from the Hana Rainforest in Hawaii. The blog and photo theme have been centering around change, so I thought I'd add the most important component: No one can make us change. Change can only come from our desire to do so........

Today's Friday Photo comes from Kenya. Women walk long distances to gather water and firewood, and people walk everywhere in the countryside. Their focus is on their current step and the lions or others that might cause them harm - they are fully present. They might have a direction in mind, yet not a specific location, so this quote is a perfect fit....especially for our often stressful and complex lives.

Today's Friday Photo comes from Pinnacles National Park in California. I love this quote from Byron Katie, as hypnosis is all about perception. As I look at the clouds reflected in the water, I am reminded that we are constantly reflecting our perception on others and seeing their perceptions reflected through our eyes - Ha! No wonder life and relationships can be so confusing....

Today's Friday Photo comes from Winchester, Idaho, just outside of the Nez Perce Reservation, where years ago I visited the Sawtooth Wolfpack on several occasions. All the wolves have since passed on, but I clearly remember the conflict I felt seeing these amazing animals so close up in captivity. It was awesome to experience them in ways most did not get the opportunity to, but sad that they gave their freedom in order for us to learn and study them to protect the species. I thought this quote appropriate for my reminiscing and for the world today.

Today's Friday Photo comes from the Museum District of Amsterdam, Netherlands. As I took this picture of a woman taking a picture, the scene seemed 'off ' somehow. She seemed too big in perspective to the trees with too many bags to carry, the busy area nearly vacant in the early morning, save the pigeons. Perhaps it has the not-quite-real look of a movie set. I thought this quote appropriate somehow - some people in your life might also feel  'off ' - where they are in relation to yourself. Understanding that may be the most important realization you have........

Today's Friday Photo comes from Deephaven, MN. As you turn over the proverbial new leaf  this new year, I wonder how many times you have wanted something but believed you could not have it for some reason. Fear, doubt, and uncertainty sabotage our best intentions and desires. Are you ready to let them go and manifest what you really desire?

Today's Friday Photo comes from a street in downtown San Francisco, California. Contemplation by both man and dog. As you review this past year, I wonder if you are finally ready to turn the page - to one that you have the power to write any way you desire....

Today's Friday Photo comes from Taos, New Mexico. Like many resolutions, the amazing  purples in this sunset were fleeting. Nothing changes on the outside if we don't address the limiting beliefs we carry within us - some of which we are totally unaware are even there. Start your new year out by working within. Learn how to do that at The FARE Hypnosis Center on January 4th - World hypnotism Day!
