LEAP!

Doggone it.  I’ve done it again.  Another year (a slight bit longer, actually) since my last blog post.  How exactly does that happen? As John Lennon once said, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans”.  And so it is. So…where was I?  Last I left this little blog, I talked about committing to making a leap.  That is a state that we can be in, almost perpetually, it seems.  The commitment and re-commitment to deciding to make something happen.  Perhaps in the year since my last blog post, you’ve committed yourself to something?  Sure you...

How to make a BIG life change: Step Two- Commit to Making the Leap

Hello, hello!  Happy summer to everyone.  It feels, once again, like a long time since my last post, but I have been spending much of my time preparing for the launch of the new and improved website.  Finally, the construction is over and the site has been launched, and I am so proud of it.  My last blog entry introduced the six-step process for how to make a BIG life change, with the introduction of Step One: Allow Yourself to Dream, along with some tips on how to do exactly that.  So, it’s time now to introduce you to Step Two. Now, before you get your knickers in a twist, please...

How to make a BIG life change: Step One

Hello all, and welcome back! Hard to believe, but my last post was nearly a year ago!  In it, I wrote on how to find a way to connect deeply with ourselves and get in contact with the sun within, even when the external weather is a rainy, dreary drag (which it often is in the Pacific Northwest, bless its lush, green heart).   And before I go on, I just want to say that I completely believe in everything I wrote in that post, and there is great truth in the statement “wherever you go, there you are”. . . . . . And I moved to Arizona. I don’t mean to boast, but it is 9am...

All that you think is rain is not

Wet, wet, wet! Another rainy, gray day here in Bellingham, which comes as no surprise to the local ‘Hamsters, to be sure. But, with less than a week remaining before the longest day of the year and the birth of summer (and the minutes of daily sunlight dwindling from that point forward), the natives are getting restless, including myself. A friend of mine and I have been text messaging each other lately on days such as these, attempting to console one another. In reading these notes, one would think that we were living under Sylvia Plath’s bell jar: Her: Where is our F*$%ing sun? Me: Must....

Thank you, and welcome!

Hello there, and welcome to the Deepest Presence blog.  My name is Jessica Chasnoff. My livelihood is as a psychologist and personal coach, but ultimately, I live to be my authentic self, and I want you to be able to do that as well.  So here, I am just Jessica, and that’s who you’ll be reading.  My intention for this blog is that its contents be inspiring, empowering, humor-filled and eminently readable.  Sometimes I will succeed at that.  Sometimes I won’t. This blog, like my work, and my life as a whole, is a practice, and whatever happens, at the very least, it’s going to be fun.  That’s...
