Choose to Triumph Over Your Challenges

I often find myself thinking, “There is so much more to do in this great life”! Each of us is faced with challenges and obstacles and there are of course times where we don’t know how we will get through a situation. It is our attitude and our mindset that paves the way and determines whether we will sail or stumble. If we allow fear and doubt to pile up on top of our challenge, there is no question we will have a heavy walk in front of us. It is not easy at first but if you choose to… Read more.

How Can I Stay in the Now?

“How can I stay present in the now when the world keeps pulling me into one drama after the next?” ~ Krishna, Amherst, MA First off, know that you cannot get pulled out of the Now. Even drama happens now. If you do not believe me, try getting out of the now. You will find that you can think about the past and the future but that only happens now. Life only happens now! If you find that feelings or drama is disturbing your peace in this moment, I would allow yourself to do the following: First off, allow yourself to… Read more.

Want to Move On? Change Your Thoughts

Have you made a mistake by saying the wrong thing to your spouse or to your boss, or by committing a blunder at work, and then allowed yourself to think about the mistake long after it was over? Of course you have, or you wouldn’t be a human being. Have you ever dwelt on the past and crowded out thoughts of the future? We all do, and unfortunately when we do we actually create more problems for ourselves. Expectancy Theory states that which we focus on expands. Ultimately for you to develop mental toughness you will need to stop giving… Read more.

Your Perceptions, Your Happiness

Change Your Perception to Find Happiness

If there’s anything I’ve learned about happiness, it’s that is has much less to do with your possessions and achievements, but rather your perception of what you have and the world and people around you. Reframe Your Perception: Each of us has dreams that for one reason or another we do not achieve. And we all make choices that perhaps were not the best we could have made. Yet, rather than allowing regret to overtake us, we must see and celebrate all the other goals we’ve accomplished and positive choices we’ve made? Human nature so often leads us to perceive… Read more.

Five Questions to Spark Your Growth Revolution

In 1981, Talking Heads proclaimed in their hit song “Once In a Lifetime”: “You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?” This is a question clients often ask when going through a big shift in life. Unfortunately, this question focuses on the past and it is the wrong question for the present moment. Shift happens – especially when you least expect it. You may think you are doing everything right and following a path you feel will bring you to a place of happiness and then — one day — a change happens that turns your world upside… Read more.

1000 Ways to Practice Awakening

Take Just One Step to Succeed

There’s a little mountain in a state park near my home. It gains about 1,500 feet in two miles. So, four miles round trip. About two hours out of my life, not counting the drive. Even if you wouldn’t take this hike today you can probably accept that you could work up to it. I’d estimate that in the past eight years I’ve climbed this one little mountain 40 times. I’ve done lots of other mountains. More dramatic ones. Mt. Katahdin in Maine. The Grand Canyon, rim-to-river and back. Half Dome. The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. But I’m putting… Read more.

Embrace Who YOU Are

There are many things that life has taught me, often in ways I couldn’t understand at the time. I was bullied at school, had a complete lack of self confidence and esteem, making me painfully shy and later, severely depressed. I have at times, felt like giving up. But those things were given to me to make me realise I am in charge of my life. When I fought back at the bullies I felt strong and happy, I knew that I could stand up for myself and take charge, that I did matter, and it felt great! Then life… Read more.

Your Life? Your Choice!

Your life is your choice. How often have we felt helpless in the face of everything that seems to hold us back? The past, the present, money, relationships, weight, appearance, self-esteem, education, connections – we can come up with so many reasons for why we aren’t successful. The power to transcend all of that and become who you were meant to be lies within you and the choices you make. Ultimately, you assign meaning to your circumstances; they don’t assign meaning to you. No matter where you’ve been or what you’ve been through, you can start today and make your… Read more.

Your Miracle is Here… You!

In our high tech culture today, where we have the capacity to send emails, create iPhones, build airplanes, harness nuclear and solar energy, we seem to have lost touch with a power far greater. The power of Life. The power of the SOUL. The power of our very own Infinite nature. Up until now MIRACLES have been left to special saints, gurus, and chosen masters. Miracles have become some far out and unusual experience rather than a natural experience in our everyday living. In our scientific world, everything needs to make sense and be logical. We seem to have lost… Read more.

Power to the People (YOU!)

Right now in this moment you are experiencing the miracle of life. You may be facing challenges. You may have financial problems, health problems, relationship problems. You may be concerned about natural disasters or the state of the world. Take this moment and let go of all of those concerns. You can come back to these issues and problems later but in this moment just experience the miracle of creation. You are a divine being. You are eternal. The awareness which you are will never die and the joy of creation will always be part of you. No matter what… Read more.

Remember to Learn Your Life Lessons

It is my belief that the most important things in life are the lessons we learn while we are here. Through our passion, willingness to take risks, the assurance that it is OKAY to fail, along with deep love and heartfelt relationships, we learn the most important lessons in life. A lifetime filled with lessons is your e-ticket ride to living passionately, with a sense of unstoppability, and the deep desire to go for your dreams and chase what you love. If you are not faced with tests throughout your life, there is no way to defend and clarify what… Read more.

Don’t Stress, Do Your Best

The most important thing to me is to always have pride in yourself and be authentic, whatever that means to you personally. If everything else in the world were to go away- the money, the titles, the material possessions- make sure that you can stand behind your name and your decisions. Your name and the way you act are your legacy. If you do something, do it 100%. If you say something, stand behind what you say. Be willing to tell someone the truth that they may not want to hear (if asked and it comes from good intentions). You… Read more.

Today Is Your Someday

On our deathbed, it really won’t matter how successful we were, how many awards we won or how many deals we closed. We won’t regret buying “that house” or “that car” or “that new gadget.” We won’t long for anything other than more TIME. Time to spend with the special people who touched our lives: our friends, our significant others, our parents, our children. Time to love, to laugh, to hug, to kiss, to cherish, to encourage, to teach lessons, to learn, to pray, to praise, to hold… time for things that no currency could ever buy. Knowing that, as… Read more.

Am I Making a Difference in the World?

“I want to make a difference in the world, but I don’t know how.” ~ Kristin, Des Moines, IA Dear Kristin, You already are the difference in the world. Literally, you being here at this time, in this place, is making a difference. Embrace that about you and learn to love and appreciate everything about this wonderful life you experience. Doing so will open your mind and fill your life with so many opportunities and experiences that you won’t be able to do it all! Stop worrying about making a difference and start embracing your existence. The world would not… Read more.

Orient Your Consciousness

It is unwise to sail to sea without a navigation system. Likewise, navigating the intricacies and challenges of life also needs special guidance. For your soul wisdom grows from your consecration. My consecration is to release any thought that closes my heart even in the slightest and to always begin my life right where I am. It is to refuse to allow fear or suffering, even physical pain, to make me self-involved. Consecration is the pole star by which you invent yourself as a spiritually oriented conscious person. But how do you know or discover your consecration? Ask yourself: What… Read more.
