by Shervin on June 18, 2018

The first time I heard about being authentic, I thought it was a tactic to find faults with someone! Over time I have realized being authentic is a natural inner desire and is the home where we love to return to. Being authentic is an inside job and is about living from heart while discovering […]

What are you holding on?

by Shervin on March 26, 2018

When we hold to an emotion by avoiding fully feeling it and do not process it, we lose clarity of our heart, mind and action.

You […]

You are Not Flawed!!!

by Shervin on October 20, 2017

You thoughts and beliefs may be flawed, not you!!! We, all as small children, accept certain thoughts and beliefs. For example, if we heard that our parents were fighting with each other and we head our names, we assumed that we have caused the fight and we were the source of disharmony. This may have […]

Open Your Heart!

by Shervin on October 8, 2017

We have many energy blockages as the result of our unresolved emotions.  The blockages do not allow us to have our heart open completely and experience life fully. Let say if someone was mean to you and you did not let go of feeling of hurt right away. You kept thinking how dare he could […]
