Vegetarianism Inside ~ Out Part 1 by Paul Chek

Today, we have many people becoming vegetarians for one or more of the following reasons:

  • The greatest occurence of cancer cases and other chronic diseases in history.
  • A growing concern over the health of our ecosystem.
  • A significant number of people are seeking spiritual grounding in response to a rising fear of Armageddon stimulated by an almost constant, worldwide coverage of war and conflict.

I decided to share my opinions on vegetarianism because in my career I have worked with many unhealthy vegetarians. Often my vegetarian patients were in need of animal nutrition yet, for one or more of the above reasons were initially resistant to my suggested inclusion of animal foods for regaining their health. As you can imagine, it is very challenging as a Holistic Health Practitioner when the patient resists coaching yet wants help at the same time! As a health coach, I applaud questions for they are often legitimate attempts to learn and grow. But it is just as important to see that dogmatic resistance retards education and growth.

Vegetarianism Inside~Out, Part 2 by Paul Chek

Does Meat-Eating Impede Spiritual Development? In Part I of this article, I shared many aspects of vegetarianism and meat eating that are commonly missed by experts of all sorts. While there are a plethora of reasons and excuses people give for not eating meat, the most common I hear, and the one that stirs my soul the most, is that eating meat impedes spiritual development. To such a comment, I must respond with a quote from William Shakespeare:

5 Keys to Overcoming Fear of Change by Paul Chek

Anyone who has had intentions to change has most likely discovered that making lasting change isn’t always so easy. Often, much of what makes change so difficult isn’t anything external, but rather our own fears and doubts.

Your Legacy: The Greatest Balancing Act by Paul Chek

In the past, I’ve discussed all sorts of things that can impact your perceptions and the course of your life – your beliefs about work, life, relationships, sex, religion, your emotions, the food you eat, the water you drink, the air you breath… Sometimes those forces are healthy and sometimes they aren’t, and it’s easy to get bogged down worrying about all of the different variables at work in our lives. But I like to keep things simple, so today I want to emphasize one point to keep in mind when you’re feeling overwhelmed. None of the forces I mentioned above is as strong as your will when you have a legacy and goal structure.

One is all there is

This is the first Sutra I wrote for my TAO-TE-zen program, but I was moved to share it with you today. Hopefully it inspires you to flex your spiritual muscles a bit and think about your relationships in a new light.

Sacred Listening by Paul Chek

February means Valentine’s Day and so our attention turns, briefly, to showing the people around us how much we love them. For those people that remember the holiday, the observance usually takes place in the form of chocolates, flowers and maybe a dinner out on the town. Now that might make for a nice night, but those gifts are fleeting. Valentine’s Day may have passed by the time that you read this, but it’s never too late to begin giving your loved ones a gift whose effect on the relationship can be incredibly deep and profound – the gift of sacred listening. In this article, I’ll explain just what it means to be a sacred listener and why it can mean all the difference to a healthy relationship.

The 50% Rule of Relationships by Paul Chek

Relationships are essential to life. Even the most radical of introverts – a yogi sitting cross-legged in a secluded mountain cave – is only there because of relationships:

  • He could only be here because of his parents’ relationship with each other.
  • He could only be there because of a relationship with a teacher.
  • He has an essential, unbreakable relationship with the earth, water, air, and the sun, all of which offer sustenance (plant or animal) as a byproduct of these elemental relationships.
  • He has a keen drive to realize self and God.
  • His self-development is only perceptual “self” development, for each one of us is essentially a cell of a larger organism called humanity. My relationships are your relationships and your relationships are my relationships.

Change from Start to Finish by Paul Chek

“Why is change so hard?” It may be the most common question I answer for clients. Change in general is easy – change is always happening. But directed change can be tough and this is what we’re really after in personal development – movement towards some goal. So why is directed change so hard? There are a number of reasons, but in this article I want to address the first stumbling block that most people run into – lack of self-knowledge.

Charging Your Battery by Paul Chek

When working with clients, I often tell them that they are a living battery. I’m sure you can feel the truth of this in a metaphorical sense. When you are feeling good from living well, your will always have energy – you will be holding a good charge.

But when I say that we are batteries, I mean this in a very literal sense as well. Consider that each of us maintains an electromagnetic field. As we become run down or progressively unhealthy, our energy field diminishes accordingly. If you allow your energy field to diminish below that of the people around you, you will, by the nature of electrical energy transfer, begin to draw off of them.

The Earth is a Schoolyard by Paul Chek

The PPS program often takes practitioners into uncharted territory. After all, there’s a lot to learn about being a human! Fortunately we have plenty of time and the Earth is an amazing schoolyard for us to learn and grow. And if current world events are any indication, there are a lot of people with a lot of growing to do. In fact, the vast majority of people are still pretty far down on the developmental process.
