Looking Through the Eyes of Another
This Sedona Blog Post will highlight the beautiful and humbling moment when you peek through the curtain and let yourself see through the eyes of another. When it comes to relationships with your partner, family or friends this can be truly integral to your closeness with them. These moments can inspire your soul! And that's what you are looking for, brothers and sisters--inspiration--lots of it!
Powerful Questions To Ask Yourself: Can you get curious about how your partner sees their world? Can you get really interested in what makes sense to them? Can you allow someone else's perspective to shift the way you see something?
The Pure Goal: To show your deep acknowledgement of what someone says and sees, especially when you don't personally see it!
The stories below illuminate these powerful moments. I have added a few YouTube links below to amplify the story!
The stunning picture above is called "Charity" by the southwest artist, Miguel Martinez.
Those of you who might not know who the late Heath Ledger was--he portrayed the "Joker" in the movie, "The Dark Knight," which he won the academy award for. He was also nominated for an oscar for his role in Brokeback Mountain.
Let me give you a short back story before I write more about Heath:
So I invite you to see Heath through the eyes of ex-actor (me) and others in the video interview below. What I witnessed Heath do as an actor in "The Dark Knight" I consider on the level of Brando in "On the Waterfront." Heath was so deep inside that character I sat for two hours shaking my head in awe and disbelief, saying over and over again, "You got to be kidding me! I think it was unexpected and that's what got me. To do something that great with that role, to see the deeper layers and subtlies of the "Joker" character--one would truly have to see through the eyes of another. His portrayal left me feeling deeply grateful that I got to witness it. It inspired me to write, to simply create.

You might be wondering why there is a Credit Help Column in a spiritual newsletter! I know that "creditable" credit repair people are hard to find and credit repair can be a frustrating experience. I've gotten very lucky in my life and met a lot of angels who really helped me out. One of them is a fellow named Mike Niccum, who is a mortgage broker and credit repair specialist. I promised myself that one day I would write about his special work. Mike is an incredibly kind soul and has really modeled to me generosity.
When I got healed of the cancer, (which went on for four years) of course, my credit was wasted. Like many, I went through a few credit-doctors and self-help and got no where. In fact, I probably made it worse. My low credit scores were certainly getting in the way of moving forward.
I was referred to Mike and was impressed by his conservative and thorough approach to credit repair. Slowly, over a year my credit moved up to an excellent high stable level. I didn't truly get it until I talked to my accountant (another angel!) and she said that Mike's results, as far as she was concerned, were super-hero status! Again, seeing through the eyes of another.
So if you are having problems in this area, I invite you to give Mike a call or email him. He has my highest recommendation! I hope this helps someone out there!
In the next few years, my goal is to increase my work with couples to maybe 75 percent of my practice. Nothing gives me more pleasure than being in the office or the vortex with couples! For whatever reason the gift in couples sessions goes deeper.
