Owning Pink's Pink Posse

The Posse Blog: Thoughts from the Collective Pink Posse (1,758)

Are you in constant overdrive?

When I worked as a surgeon, I was always on call, always ready to go at a moment’s notice. 

I was honestly too busy to realize how tired I was. The truth is, I was bone-deep tired. Living in a constant state of exhaustion is too much for a body to handle.

One day, I simply collapsed. For a month, was unable to concentrate, unable to feel, and unable to know what I really wanted to do. Exhaustion sucked me completely dry. 

I realized that…

BodyMind Consciousness- Lungs - What does it Represent and What is it trying to tell you?


Each quarter, I will share with you the function of a different anatomy of the body.  We will look at the beliefs and issues it represents symbolically in the mind.  The consciousness issues associated with parts of the body typically will derive from the use of symbolism from language as well as the western and eastern medicine concepts.  To get a quick refresher of What is BodyMind Consciousness,…

Want to (En)Lighten Your Mind? - Let Go!

Have you ever been annoyed or irritated by one (or more) of the following:


The team member who is always late for meetings and is doing minimal to pull his/her weight

The friend who you know has read your emails, text messages that contains a question but does not respond

The rowdy teenagers sitting behind you at the movie

The relative who owes you money but will not pay you back unless you ask for it.

The child on the plane who keeps kicking the back of…

A Cancer Scare Forced Me To Look At My Choices

I remember it like it was yesterday. 

I stood in the bathroom in front of the mirror after a long, lazy day in southern France. That's when I saw it —a big, ugly, black and white liver spot on my lower back. 

Suddenly, an undertow of awful images of cancer and suffering and chemo and surgery rushed in and sucked me out to sea..

Then, I forced my mind to stop. 

“Wait a…

Your Stomach - What It Represents & What It Can Be Trying To Tell You

The consciousness issues associated with parts of the body typically will derive from the use of symbolism from language as well as the western and eastern medicine concepts.

Before reading about the beliefs and issues The Stomach represents symbolically in the mind, it would be beneficial to get a general sense of what is BodyMind Consciousness?

Body Mind Consciousness

Our body and mind, like our universe is ONE. It contains all aspects of…

Heart vs. Mind - How to Strengthen Your Personal Power

Have you ever felt torn between what you want and what you need? Where your mind is telling you to do one thing and your heart is telling you to do another.   


Lately I have noticed that I have been in my head, thinking about all the things I want to do and trying to decide what I need to do.  What should I focus on? At the same time, I have been worrying about the consequences and risks of the decisions I make and how things will play out, how it will affect others, etc.  It has…

When are you the most Happiest?

A reader recently forwarded an article to me posted by Thriveworks.  A study found we are the most happiest at 23 and 69.

At 23, we are optimistic, keen and hopeful about what the future has in store for us.


At 69, we have experienced and have become competent in adjusting our attitudes and expectations towards the roller coaster of life.


Between 23 and 69, we navigate through the trials and tribulations of life.  We learn to manage our…

Inner Wisdom

Happiness depends upon ourselves. —Aristotle

Life is a paradox.  Carl Jung highlighted this in his work saying the very things that bring us happiness like family, relationships, friends, work are paradoxically the very things that can cause our pain and suffering.  For this reason Buddhism teaches us the art of detachment, living in the present moment in peace and…

Love and Gratitude

The name for this blog ´rainbow in my clouds´ was inspired by Maya Angelou and the advice she gives to Oprah Winfrey whenever she is encountering any difficult terrain in her life.  Maya says instead of crying/worrying/complaining about what has happened, thank God for your rainbow because even though you may not be able to see it yet or realize it, a rainbow is coming into your life.

We´ve all…

With all the different things being told to us it is very understandable how this whole manifesting LOA jazz can confuse. But let us look at this universally what is the pure law of attraction/ manifestation? What we put out is what comes back to us, what we dwell on we draw more of to us.

So let us focus on the awesomeness, live with gratitude. And smile a lot for in that we are telling the universe what I dwell on is what makes me happy.

Expect and welcome miracles. a mantra…

Toast to Being Unpopular

Have you ever been in an interview or on a date and thought I need to say the right thing, so the person sitting opposite of me will hire me or like me?   How often do you put on your superficial “date face’ and respond “politely” to people instead of being honest and say how you actually feel? 


Recently, I had a debrief of an interview for an internal position that I applied for with my current manager and hiring manager and I was asked.  How do you think you did in the…

For the record.

In life, I have very few regrets. And to be truthful,I have a strong penchant for the word regret. Instead,I prefer outcomes,situations or lessons and experiences that I am not pleased with the end result. Honestly ,I believe regret is such a strong word__, it gives the bearer of the word a bad reptutation for having a negative attitude. Also, it applies a pessimist view or outlook on life. At forty something, I fall short on regrets in choices of friends,bestfri ends,boy… Continue

"The F Word"

F*ck It are two of my favorite words in the English language. 

These two words have always brought me joy and has helped me release pain and anxiety  whenever I feel overwhelmed, agitated and fearful of judgment in my life.  This week, I am grateful to have came across an interview with John C. Parkins who is the Live the F*ck It Life founder.  He validated the power of these two words and has given me permission to use it…
