Taming the Inner Critic: How to Have More Energy and Time

By Sheevaun Moran. The energy of not enough time is prevalent in our western population. Every time you reinforce the thought, and energy, that you don’t have enough time the more elusive time is. You zap and suck your energy when you allow interruptions and constant bombardment. Interrupters in your day include email that automatically downloads and dings every time there’s a new one. This is a persistent guilt driven and energy draining force in your day. The same applies to texting and the need to respond immediately. Turning on the television is one of the classic interrupters and energy… Read more.

Today’s Brilliance from Penny Kane

Each and every one of us is put here to do something spectacular, something that will better this earth. Your personality, your character traits, everything in your DNA was given to you as a gift. A gift that will propel you to new heights to achieve exactly what you came here to do. Trusting in your gifts and aligning yourself with integrity are two very important things to remember. When you come to your last day and take your very last breath, you cannot take money or fame with you. Those things are not reality and they do not serve… Read more.

Today’s Brilliance from David Daniels

If this were my last day, my only day – there is only love. All there ever was and will be is love. Brilliance comes from the inner knowing of this. And by love, I mean the connection of us humans in body, mind, and heart – souls together in harmony with gratitude for what is. When love is present everything radiates and beauty abounds. We are not captured and hostage to our personality structure, to our opinions or our judging mind, and we know that the fabric of the universe is seamless until we cut into it, creating cause… Read more.

Dedicate Your Life to Service

Many years ago in meditation, I received the following message. This message has been a guiding light in my life ever since. Dedicating my life to service has brought so much passion, joy, and fulfillment to my life that I would like to share these words with you now. May they spark that divine flame within you, as they did in me. Blessings to you! “It is not life experience that teaches a baby to laugh. She is born with a spark of God, and that part of her remains intact. She is whole in her totality, though God is… Read more.

What Do You WANT to Happen?

For thirty-five years as a psychologist, business consultant and writer, I have tried to help clients and readers keep the difficult people at work and at home from driving them crazy. To that end, I can offer one inspirational piece of advice: In difficult situations, before you do or say anything, stop and ask yourself, “What do I want to happen?” The reason this simple advice works magic has to do with the structure of your brain. At times, that same structure also makes this advice surprisingly hard to follow. Here’s why: Human consciousness is a messy pile of thoughts,… Read more.

Harvesting Happiness: Happiness Is…

By Lisa Cypers Kamen. Happiness is knowing you’ve made a difference in someone’s life. Watching your child say their first word or take their first step. The first time they say “mama” or “dada” brings an instant smile to your face. Waking up to the sunrise and knowing that today is a new day. Having no physical or emotional pain. Being with the person or people who love you. Letting them know that they are loved and cared about in return. Dancing in the rain….or walking in the rain with someone who loves you. Not caring that you are soaked… Read more.

If trying harder doesn’t work…

By B. Lynn Goodwin. “You don’t lose until you quit trying,” my boyfriend, Richard, keeps telling me. It sounds too easy. It seems too simple. The more I see him put it into action, though, the more his words make sense. The first time I heard his claim, I said, “You’d better check with Hillary Clinton. Remember how badly she’d wanted the Democratic nomination in 2008?” “She didn’t quit trying,” he said. “Instead, she became Secretary of State.” I hadn’t thought of it that way, but he gave me a new perspective. I figured that Hillary Clinton’s defeat was a… Read more.

Today’s Brilliance from Chris Kauza

To laugh often and much. My objective in life is to be happy at the end of each day. It’s easier on some days than on others. Choose financial abundance and make no excuses. Go for and pursue “money”, if you want. However, first understand “what” money is and “why” you are pursuing it. You can never be poor enough to help someone else and attaining the money is really only the beginning. When given a choice, take the risk! You and your life will be better for it. It is easier to tear something down, than it is to… Read more.

The Law of Appreciation

By Sheevaun Moran. When leaders are complimentary in their mind towards their group, staff, vendors, family, etc. then discord can be easily disintegrated. The energy of the leader at the top is the energy of all the people below. A thought of anger permeates the entire organization and is just like putting a cog in the wheel of productivity. Frustration energy is like putting battery acid on your computer. Every time you appreciate the person who works with you and for you is like putting grease in the gears. The energy of appreciation is as if you are creating the… Read more.

Today’s Brilliance from Robyn O’Brien

Hope is the knowledge that change is possible, even when it seems hard to imagine. In a world that very much feels like it has been thrown into a cuisinart, there are so many opportunities to be part of the solution. You bring a unique combination of heart and talent to the world that no one else possesses! While the world tends to favor the status quo and conformity, there is so much fun to be had in the experience of living, growing and finding the courage to live a purpose driven, rewarding life. It won’t be without challenges and… Read more.

Harvesting Happiness: Seek Happiness

By Lisa Cypers Kamen. Happiness can be likened to hidden treasure – and just like you would use a map to seek that treasure – you can seek happiness in life. The biggest question you are faced with when seeking happiness is how? How do I find that small nugget of happiness in a chaotic life? Do I even have happiness in my life? Sometimes we can’t even see it. Just like someone looking for gold or some other treasure, you have to dig for it and keep searching until you find it. Put in a simpler way – you… Read more.

Is Someone Taking Your Limelight?

By Sheevaun Moran. Do you feel a small or large punch in your gut when you’ve seen someone who is doing what you want to do or someone you know who has gotten an opportunity that you want? Have you posted something in a group that you’re affiliated with and taken the initiative only to have them try to one up you? You deserve the best in every aspect of your life and now is the time to get it. How? This energy punch is a remnant from childhood and being told you did something wrong, from being let down… Read more.

Today’s Brilliance from Laura Munson

There is a quote by the mystic poet Rumi that goes, “Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing, there is a field: I’ll meet you there.” I am interested in that field. I am interested in the freedom of that open space. I want to breathe that oxygen. In it there is no fear or shame or guilt or the word “should.” It simply opens its spaciousness to us. Calls forth the possibility of what we can create there. What do you create? I don’t mean the nouns of your life. I create books, for instance. Those are… Read more.

Harvesting Happiness: Winter Blues

By Lisa Cypers Kamen. With winter and colder temperatures here to stay, you may be feeling what can be termed the winter blues or Seasonal Affective Disorder. However, you can find happiness despite these feelings. How can you beat those winter blues? You might try a brisk walk or you could take up a winter sport. Just remember to adapt your exercise to winter conditions. Exercise releases endorphins, which keep you in a good mood and the effects can last long after your workout is done.

The Five Steps of Faith

I would like to share The Five Steps of Faith, which have helped me live life as an awakened, powerful woman. For 25 years I suffered from low self-esteem, addiction to alcohol and failed relationships. I was so tied to painful and embarrassing moments that suffering became part of my identity. Every day I woke up consumed with fear, guilt and anxiety over how I would face the future. I had no idea that there was a choice available to me about how I could feel. I was living in a dark hole and I did not know how to… Read more.

Today’s Brilliance from Pilar Stella

As I sat down to write this piece, I thought about the word “InspIre.” No wonder the word starts with the letter “I” and “U” is nowhere to be found. Yet, isn’t it interesting that when we think of the word InspIre, it is often to think of who InspIres us and is even more likely to be answered with some external person, mentor or idol? What if we began to truly see the “I” in InspIre and recognized the ways in which we InspIre ourselves and others? Don’t get me wrong, it is a beautiful thing to be InspIred… Read more.

The Vibrational Ladder of Purpose

By Sheevaun Moran. The most common reason women are seeking to better themselves is because they want to live “on purpose”.  Meaning they want to be in line or working to develop their purpose for being, being here and doing what they are doing. One of the reasons that people are so unhappy in their life is that they are living out of alignment with their purpose. For example, you work as an investment banker and yet you really want to be selling custom furniture where you are the designer of some pieces. This is an actual situation from a… Read more.
