    #5 Very interesting @Deb 🐝 Helfrich yes, I noted on your site that you'd authored a book. It does make me wonder who chooses who. I've noticed with mine that they recently went through an uncharacteristic spell of being aggressive to other dogs. When I worked with a healer friend to uncover what was going on with me, she made the connection to the dogs' behaviour reflecting my own subconscious patterning. They are so present and such a gift to us humans.

    #4 Zanzi is a fierce only. I went through a lot when she arrived, (so much so I wrote a book) only to realize she absolutely needed me & the sanctuaries I tend to create. She also, like now, takes over in a very aggressive manner when I get exhausted.

    In essence, she protects the animal in me, on the things that my mind is willing to negotiate, and will 'neglect' to notice my body is protesting about.

    #2 I'd forgotten about that @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. Yes, you're right. What my dogs had taught me about consciousness! I remember in the early days, taking Burt to a dog trainer because we weren't getting on - we were close, then the husband came and went, and he just wasn't the same dog anymore. I was convinced he was sulking. She threw anthropomorphism into the mix, saying dogs don't sulk. It didn't feel true to me. Then years later, I took my dogs on a course with me and the trainer said "Burt's a bit depressed." Now, of course, we know animals are conscious beings (and I know Burt would rather be an "only" dog!).

    Great point, Deb and yes, we haven't spoken about dogs at all! Thanks for sharing your valuable insights

    #1 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich I've read so many "horror" stories where people have parted with thousands of dollars for online coaching programmes (& I've invested in a few myself) that haven't delivered, but you can pay more for a full day workshop to support the programme, because "most of you aren't going to succeed" Well, if you know that, create a programme that leaves no-one behind, if they're willing to commit, of course. I didn't want to say much more, so the post wasn't too critical, but there are so many coaches and healers who are running from their own crap. I agree, rapport and trust are paramount.

    I was going to mention trusting your gut, but, as people tend to trust it in isolation - gut OR head OR heart, instead of AND, AND - I omitted it. When we're fearful, our gut reacts. Sometimes it reacts because it's fearing something that isn't real. So it needs re-educating (we need to hit its reset button). Interesting point you make about websites. I've abandoned each one because it didn't reflect the "real" me. I'm also guarded with my calendar. Being sensitive, like you, if I sense someone isn't right to work with me, I can avoid an initial session with them. Your Soulsters passion sounds like a great business idea.
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    21/05/2017 #2 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    Now, specifically, the initial reason I felt comfortable with you were your experiences and beliefs about the impressive teachers of actual reality that our canine companions truly are. That post was what opened up the incredibly enriching relationship and satisfying conversations. And we haven't even talked at all about dogs explicitly.

    Finding out a person's relationship to animals, really any part of the natural world, is an expressway to uncovering a soul-centered person, to some extent. At least in my experience.
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    21/05/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    This is an interesting and important topic, @Tricia Mitchell. Doing right life work, healing our limiting beliefs, and clearing emotional obstacles is first and foremost about rapport and trust with any given practitioner. Open and honest communication, both ways, without any reluctance or resistance has to be the prerequisite, or else, no matter how world-reknown the healer is, the work will just be another layer of subterfuge on the part of the person seeking healing.

    Personally, I go with my gut. I do think the photo can clinch it by itself on occasion, but, for me, only if it is not professionally staged.

    I really like to read a highly unique website, that is where I make most of my decisions, as it really shows a holistic view of what the person offers and how they got to this point. Although, again, I allow that many people can't/don't realize how to embody themselves on the web, and they follow boilerplates.

    One thing that I really, really prefer, as an introvert and sensitive person is online scheduling.

    It is curious, as one of the things I'd love to add to my business is helping Soulpreneurs create an online world that conveys exactly who they are. I could keep on learning the things I feel called to learn. Hang out with the sorts of folks that often become friends. And make a living.

    "Education has long been synonymous with success. In general, the more education an individual has, the greater the person's earnings potential. Education also has a positive correlation with the ability to find employment opportunities. Better educated workers are more likely to be employed in good-paying jobs, and tend to have an easier time finding new opportunities should the need arise. An investment in a technical or college degree is likely to pay for itself within just a few years of the newly educated worker entering the workforce. Over the course of a lifetime, educated workers are likely to rack up a return on investment measuring in the hundreds of thousands of dollars."

    I did not find this to be true. I finished my BA and was denied job after job. I am disabled. If one is disabled, the chance of finding a job peters down to 0. Education does not even make a Dent.

    #11 @Milos Djukic, my friend, you and I have disagreed about this for a long time and will likely continue to do so.

    First, your statement that "Our future "Brave New World", despite some dogmatic principles could be a lot of different place, much better too and full of some glittering prizes for all of us ..." makes me generally uncomfortable. For it strikes me as a typically utopian vision, in which someone is willing to sacrifice individual humanity if the cause of some undefined "greater good".

    Beyond that, I do agree with you that "We need self-organizing system in order to be adaptive and sustainable ...". To my mind that self-organization is organic and arises from the constant interplay and adjustments that result from free and open exchange of ideas and opinions -- which includes the tolerance of non-violent, civil disagreement and criticism. When I refer to "aggressive passivity" what I mean is the emerging tendency on social media to insist on the elimination of questioning or dissenting exchange on the basis that all engagement should be sweet and without conflict of any sort. For this is to confuse mutual support and respect with shallow common stroking. Cheers!

I don't mind these people all that much because criticism is how we learn. The wold is not all peace, love and groovy. The people who learn to roll with that are the ones who, in their own ways are helping to bridge the Great Divide. Thanks for your comments, my friend.
