Cultivate Your Inner Adult

Grow up. It sounds a little abrupt, I know, but not many of us manage to become real adults. There are so few role models in public life! The good news is that there is an inner adult in you. Forget about bringing out your inner child. The world is already full of childish antics and behaviors. Cultivate the inner adult in you. It begins with being witness to yourself. Step outside of yourself and notice what you do, how you react, and the person you become in various situations. Witness your own thinking. What thoughts do you hold that… Read more.

Become Aware

Before you can achieve peace or happiness in your life, you must become aware of yourself. This is never an easy task as it is much easier to recognize the errors of others rather than take responsibility for our own errors. You must become aware of what you say and how you say it. The words you choose, your tone of voice, the expression in your face and eyes. You must become aware of what you do and how you do it. Always pay attention to details, as these are the little things that will make a BIG difference. Honor your word and the promises you… Read more.

Dare To Be You

Be who you are. Don’t try to mimic anyone else. Be uniquely you, because (and this is quite amazing) there is no one else in this world exactly like you and never will be! If you continue to strive to be someone you’re not, you’ll not only remain unhappy and unfulfilled, you’ll also deprive others of the gift of yourself—the very special “someone” only you can give. That would be a tragedy. Okay, so now you may wonder. . . “How can I be myself if I don’t really know who I am yet?” Good question. The first thing I’d… Read more.

Energize Your Life With Self Awareness

You are not diminished by your pain. Your spirituality is not measured by the presence or absence of difficulty in your life. Challenge is not a punishment or a reward. It is not a reflection of your value to the world; it is a reflection of your choice to grow and learn and make mistakes. Although your thoughts and attitudes attract and create your life, you are not your thoughts. “Your thoughts control your experience of reality. But your thoughts cannot affect, or change, or control, or even touch who you are.”~ Paul Williams, Remember Your Essence Remembering your essence will… Read more.

You are one of a kind and perfection all on your own. To know your sustenance is to know you are expanding now, always, in all ways, always and ever!


To live the life you deserve, you must get to know who you really are.


Choose to Celebrate Your Sacred Body & Life

Life is all about the choices we make day in, day out. Living our best life means choosing to appreciate our magnificent bodies. The body is sacred, a temple of the living, loving Spirit, and therefore deserves reverence. Treat yourself with respect. Don’t wait until you’re sick to recognize the miracle of your body. Honor the love inside you and the love you are. If you want to become healthier and more powerful, begin with how you feel about yourself and accept your body as a temple. Heaven on earth is inside each one of us at this moment. In… Read more.

A center of influence is aware that every thought, emotion, word, and behavior s/he expresses has an effect.


Trying to Change? You Already Are What You Seek

You are perfect just the way you are. You are stronger than you know. The traits you admire in others are traits you also possess. Believe in yourself. Quit looking outside of yourself for your answers; you will never find them that way. Your answers are inside of you. Besides, no one knows better than you what it is you need out of life. You already are that which you seek. Question everything. How can you know what feels right if you don’t understand what you’re dealing with? And just because someone else believes something doesn’t mean it’s right for… Read more.

These Things I Know to be True

What I know to be true is no matter how turbulent the roller coaster of life seems to be, or however many times I swing from one emotional high, to any emotional low, this life is a precious gift of experience I honor and treasure – no matter what form it appears to take. I know that whatever I know is only a point of view based on a past history of experiences, with every single point of view hiding in the minds of all, being equally unique and valid to their past, as similar or as different as it… Read more.

It is not your job to worry about other people, what they do or why. It’s their journey, and they will get from life what they put into it. It is, however, your job to take full ownership of your own life, your journey, what you do and why. You, too, will reap what you sow. Plant your garden with seeds of love, and enjoy the bountiful harvest.


Find and Stand In Your Truth

Take a long look in the closest mirror.  Look up, look down.  Notice what you are thinking and how you are feeling in doing so. Then, ask yourself… Do you recognize that person? Is your external being a true reflection of the soul on the inside? Do you bear slight resemblance to the face in the mirror, or are you identical twins?  Are you happy with that person?  Are there things you notice you want to change? What is the chatter going on in your mind and heart right now? Often in life, the face we put forward in the… Read more.

Once we connect to the wisdom of our soul we will see how every experience in our life benefits us in fulfilling our purpose.


Honoring Ourselves with Love and Respect

If I could share all the profound words that have been shared throughout the years, the most honest and powerful words would be ‘Honor thyself first, before you attempt to honor others.’ When we take time to actually get to know ourselves and spend quality time nurturing our feelings, thoughts, and emotions, we, in turn, will be more of a blessing towards others. It’s a wonderful experience when we embrace and respect ourselves to the point where only love lives and all those other useless and judgmental attitudes have vacated. When we teach our spirit to dance and rejoice with… Read more.

3 Ways To Reveal Your Talents

Sometimes, we conceal ourselves from ourselves. Not wanting to acknowledge the person we are, in all our special gifts, until we are forced to be guided by the wits of what life has taught us. A failure to engage, stuck in the rut, feeling unfilled, because…. We do that until we grow into this ever-evolving trail of life, eventually seeking ways to find meaning after challenges have found us with no zap in our story. Then we start on the quest to find value in our narratives. We are each bestowed with abilities of wonder, making us this unique blend…. Read more.

What Matters To You?

Nothing you are told that matters, really matters! What do I mean by that? Well as we are raised, interact with other children, are taught at schools and then indoctrinated in our jobs and careers, we are constantly told what’s important… make a good first impression, look out for number one, find a stable job with good income, buy a house, buy a bigger house, buy a BMW, etc. And so many times, we lose the idea of what’s important to US and start to believe that all these things are important to us. We fall in line. But you… Read more.

Finding Your Blind-Spots

As I turn 50, my intention is to devote the second phase of my life to share my insights learned through my many missteps over the years and the introspection that followed, so that others need not go through the same bumps and falls that I had to endure on their journey to joy, fulfillment and peace. I truly believe that we can create an enlightened society where inner awareness can empower people to thrive in harmony. To generate joy and peace in your life and our world, we need to look at ourselves both as individuals and as a… Read more.

Ready to Improve Your Relationship with Yourself?

Relationships are so important. When everything else has faded – our jobs, our possessions, even our health – it is our relationships that remain. They can contribute to a wonderful life or they can dismantle it piece by piece, sending us into the darkest depths of frustration. Lucky for us, there is a way to ensure that we always have good relationships. Learn and hold dear this simple truth: your relationships with others are simply mirror images of your relationship to yourself.  Do you know yourself? Right now you are determining the quality of your relationships through your perceptions and your belief… Read more.

10 Questions for Finding Your Balance

Have you ever asked yourself probing questions that get to the root of your inner self? Have you done the inner questioning to help you uncover your purpose—what your life is calling you to do? We must ask ourselves powerful questions to get to the core of our being. To get you started, ask yourself, “If time and money were not an issue, what would I be doing?” I like this question because it is as if we won the lottery. If you won a million bucks, what would you do? A question like this can begin to unveil some… Read more.

Your Past Doesn’t Have to Determine Your Present

In today’s world, where technology has eclipsed our humanity, many of us are looking for a way to operate in our lives with a day-to-day sense of excellence and wellbeing, a way that fulfills our spiritual nature. People have tried different religions or disciplines with varying degrees of success or failure. They have taken motivational workshops to try to discover some meaning to apply to their lives and many have come away wondering, “Is this all there is?” This vague sense of emptiness or dissatisfaction can permeate our lives, even when we accomplish the goals we set for ourselves. People… Read more.

4 Practices for a Healthy, Happy Inner Child

I would speak about what I have learned from the angels of transparency who have inspired me throughout my life. Look inside yourself and heal your inner child. This is the part of you that you have hidden for such a long time, that you have abandoned and rejected. Doing this for myself, I felt like a new world was coming to life – like I was reborn. It felt like my skin was being regenerated somehow and that all my old issues were being healed and addressed. When we heal our inner child, then we can think of moving… Read more.
