A Random Act Of Kindness

If I were looking back from the end of my life and telling others what would help the world, what would make the biggest difference, I would ask each person to look around today and find a small "Random Act of Kindness" they could do that would help a stranger. I would say to go against your ingrained biases, suspend judgment, and think the best for someone who appeared to be on the other "side." Do something to help them without thinking of a return. I believe that when you envision the best traits for someone in need, they may…

Remember to Experience the Magic of Childhood!

In today's busy tech oriented world, I have been fortunate to discover an incredibly simple source of inspiration... children. As a career-oriented woman, I took a pass on having my own family. Yet in the past few years and for a variety of reasons, I have had an awakening that we should all be more childlike. Children always have time to examine a new flower or exclaim over a rainbow... they also are quick with a hug... which is quite priceless when you think about it. Little kids are non-judgmental and enjoy a good belly laugh more often than not.…

Make Time for What’s Important

Make time for your hopes, dreams and goals. Five years ago I had a life-altering experience that has contributed to the person that I am today, the adoption of my daughter, Mia. As my love for her grew, so did my hopes, dreams and goals, which were no longer just for me anymore but also for my daughter, husband, family, friends and the global community at large. With the demands of our busy lives it is so easy to lose sight of our hopes, dreams and goals. At every turn we are distracted by text messages, cell phone calls and…

The Importance of Smiling and 15 Other Life Lessons of Kindness

Be still in your life. Take time to listen to nothing but the sound of your own thoughts. Learn to like your own company. Share with others what you have. Even if it is just a dollar, share it. Listen with your heart. Do not be in a hurry to tell your story. Listen as others tell their story first. See what needs to be done, and do it. Do the dishes need to be washed? Yes? Then wash them. Are there dirty clothes on the bed? Yes? Put them in the hamper. Send a smiley to someone just because…

Share Your Wisdom

If everyone shared the lessons and knowledge of their lives, we could learn so much from each other, and there would be more empathy and less strife. Here is the wisdom that I’ve gained in my thirty-seven years: The color of someone’s skin or their financial status shouldn’t define how they’re treated. Someone else’s religious beliefs shouldn’t offend you if your own faith is strong. It’s easy to let drama into your life but it’s harder to get rid of it. Don’t stress out if no one else has faith in you, just have faith in your God and that’s…

Being Authentically You

The most important gift that you can give yourself, and the world, is to live an authentic life. This takes a lot of courage and commitment as society tends to pull you in all different directions, pushing you to be everything and anything but who you wish to be yourself. If you want to live an inspired life, it's vital that you are true to you, what your dreams and visions are and what kind of life you would love to lead, not somebody else's idea of what that is. It's time for you to honour yourself and your passions…

As Simple As ‘Be Happy!’

BE HAPPY! (Easier said than done right?!) When we are truly happy in the moment of life, we feel full, complete, whole and satisfied. Time stands still. Clarity is in our hearts. We LOVE life, others and ourselves. We feel good and authentic inside. And when we feel good, we do "good" in this world. We share our overflowing happiness with others, which then recycles right back to us. Our happiness is a gift to the world. So if it is that simple - BE HAPPY - why do we make it so elusive, difficult and complex to achieve? Because…

Life in Turmoil? Look Within

I like to look upon life as a magical magnificent mirror of truth and awareness. Everything that I, or you, can consciously observe in others, we have the full ability to observe within ourselves. In our daily lives, we often place judgments, fears or even admiration upon the individuals we come across. Spirit is amazing. (Some call it God, or a "Grand Organized Designer," or even Lord, Christ, whatever it may be that in your truth exists as that higher source of ultimate wisdom.) So, Spirit gives us so many continual experiences and events on a daily basis that bring…

Living Intuitively In the Present Moment

My daughter, Raegan, has taught me much on this intricate journey of ours. She has shown me how to love, believe in God, and detach from my anger, fear, and frustration. Her smile and effervescent spirit is the ideal demonstration of perfection in imperfection—she does not allow her fragile, broken body to dim the brilliant light of her soul. We have learned to embrace our world, taking each day as it comes, thankful and blessed to be together, not allowing fears of the future to interfere with our joy of the present moment. We choose to leave our feelings of…

Creating Hope from Heartache

Barbara Marx Hubbard says that "Crisis is an evolutionary driver." Our world is certainly in crisis. I passionately believe the ultimate way to take part in the evolution of humankind is to wholeheartedly embrace our unique individual gifts and ferociously share them with others. The God within is calling out to all of us to contribute to each other in unconventional and profound ways. Rather than search for love, be love. Rather than wish the world would change, be the change. Honor your divinity within. Embody kindness, and let your generous spirit guide you. Cherish all your relationships, especially those…

The Power of Dreams, Love, and Gratitude

Before my daughter goes to bed at night, I reaffirm to her what I believe are some of the most important thoughts and beliefs that I have used to guide me, my closest family, my friends, and my patients as well. These are the principles that I share with her: One, believe in your dreams and desires and know that there is absolutely no limitation for any of them. It is not our job to ask as to how they will be provided by the universe, but simply to trust that you will achieve them and receive them. It is…

Sing a Song of Gratitude

Sing a song of gratitude, every day, to remind yourself daily how to be thankful. Remember that the Universe loves you. The Universe loves me. Love is within, without, and all around us. Love is in every being, every object, every thing. Remember the magic of life that is in life. Play with the faeries and angels and animal spirits. Let them be your helpers. Thank your ancestors and all those who have come before us, for the lessons that they teach us and the help that they have given us, so that we can be here now. Smile. It…

Finding the Path to Happiness

The pursuit of happiness in most people's lives is seemingly elusive. In some respects, it almost seems that the concept of happiness has been left out of the evolutionary design. Leo Tolstoy said, "Joy can be real only if people look upon their life as a service, and have a definite object in life outside themselves and their personal happiness." I'm going to share with you a difficult part of my childhood in the hopes it illustrates that the path you choose is critical to the level of joy you experience. When I was 12, my family moved from New…

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…

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…

Top 9 Tips For Joy, Love and Fulfillment

I'm so inspired to share the top nine most important things I've learned about life and how to navigate through it to experience the most joy, love, and fulfillment possible! (1) Being of service to others is the biggest factor in maintaining my connection with my innermost source of energy. I uplift others by letting my highest self shine through my being and inspire the actions I take. When my highest self expresses itself through me, it draws out that same highest self from others. (2) Meditating for 3 minutes, 3 times a day (what I call 3x3 Meditation) is…

Need Inspiration? Look Within

You are your greatest source of inspiration. It is an energy that lives and breathes inside of you. Similar to the soul, it is infinite, limitless, boundless and pure. Tapping into your inspiration has little to do with doing, changing or figuring things out. Those responses create unsupportive barriers which clog the pathways of this force. It is a feeling that emerges from inside and expands outward. You may recognize it through a flash of insight, a rise in energy, an a ha moment or internal shift in your state of mind. Just like life happens, inspiration happens. You have…

All Is As It Should Be – Powerful Steps to a Peaceful Life

We are all looking for answers, a guidebook for existence, a roadmap. We want to follow measurable steps. Bottom line: we are all seeking peace and joy. At times, I’ve felt confused, cluttered, disempowered and swallowed up by the world. I’ve allowed everyone but me to define my truth and tell me what I need to be. The turning point that revealed the power of choice to me came in my mid-30’s when I woke up one day and asked myself, “What is this life I am living? What do I want to be? What is valuable and important to…

The Power of Purpose

If today were my last day on earth, the words I would share wouldn't necessarily be something that hasn't been said before, only something simply forgotten, more or less, buried, tucked away, locked inside our hearts. It's a message that we have all heard: a creed that we've all sworn to at some time in our lives. A burning desire that was placed in us a birth. I'm referring to our purpose and the power that it holds once it is embraced and acted upon. If today were my last day on earth, my only regret in this life would…

This one decision will affect everything in your life. Struggle Leads To This Question We live in a world where struggle and difficulty are simply a part of life. Some people struggle financially. Others face health issues or the loss of a loved one. Some…
