5 Lessons for Happiness

Here are a few of the best lessons I can happily share: 1. Life is tough Agreed, life is filled with trials and tribulations. To say one is happy all the time is a lie. To know happiness is available at any time is a truth. Happiness will not wait for us. Happiness will not invite us to the party. We must invite ourselves to say, "yes", diving deeply and happily into life... all of it... the ups, downs, twists and turns of our miraculous journey. Happiness exists in tandem with adversity. Happiness waits in all the nooks and crannies…

3 Steps to Becoming Present

Take your time; there is no other time. Even when everything seems to accelerate beyond control - especially then - take your time. Time does not exist as an objective thing; it depends completely on your perception and your connection with yourself. If you are present, in touch with how you experience reality and open to what you are experiencing, then you are the master of time, not its slave. How do we do that? The method is simple: it has a few basic steps that require no particular skills, talents or techniques. It is called "practicing presence". I imagine…

4 Intuitive Tips for Success

I have heard the term "uncertain times" used too frequently in the last few years. When were times certain? In business and life it is always essential to be pro-active, plastic, and prepared. We should never assume that things are certain, because this will only set us up for a great fall. In business, and especially in an economic downturn, it is the intuitive company that thrives. Those actual out-of-the-box ideas thrive in unsettled times. It's not worth waiting for miracles to happen, or things to get better. You must create the future on your own terms. How to Rule…

Participating in Your Own Rescue

When people ask what I've learned from the experiences in my life I have to smile. What always comes to my mind is faith, accountability, courage, forgiveness and compassion. I have learned perception is everything, And, most of all participating in your own rescue is not an option. It's a necessity. My life has been an amazing adventure from the very beginning. Some may hear my story and say, "How did she survive"? I have gone from the highs and lows of a childhood where I had no idea that my sense of always being different, feeling and seeing so…

Words of Wisdom

Wisdom is only valuable to the minds that will accept it and make room to store it for future use. You can share wisdom with anyone, but if they do not have a thirsty mind or enough drive to strive for greatness, it might not sink in. This is okay, share your wisdom with everyone you can, I promise you are helping change lives. You must share your ideas with everyone you can. Finding creative ways to interject your ideas and desires into conversations that are irrelevant to your passions is an entertaining challenge.  You never know who can help…

It is important that we learn how to adapt to life in order to find that balance between the external and internal environment that we call health.

Why You Need To Be Ready to Forgive

We are mistake-makers. It is part of being human. Every day, more accurately, every hour, we err. Whether in areas of judgment, precision, or skill...individuals forget to read an entire report, they overlook a deadline, or rush to the next task without first checking their calendar. In short, we are error-ridden folk. This we have in common. The difference lies in how we handle our mistakes and how we respond to the transgressions of others. Do we write people off, cut them from our life (personally and professionally)? Or in the midst of the heat, do we look for some…

Why Paying Attention Matters

Were I to leave an inspirational message for the world upon my departure from this magnificent planet, it would be simple: Pay Attention. By and large, our modern societies have imposed the tools and parameters of our utter distraction: cement jungles of our largely dysfunctional cities, inane and manipulative messages of coercive media, the goings-on of our governments with their hidden agendas, daily distractions of our runaway technologies and their abstract impressions, overlaid upon the tapestries of our richly woven lives as "spiritual beings, having a human experience." Every life is a chalice, which carries the potential to be filled…

Letting Your Inner Sun Out

We’ve all felt it, walking out of yoga class, looking at the mountains, strolling by the ocean. With our attention mobilized, another dimension opens for us, just as we are, right where we are. Suddenly, we are living in intense present-moment awareness. Life can be difficult, but the light of consciousness can be in us! Everything we need is here inside. With a receptive attention, we can perceive the subtle energy animating us. A sacred energy is coming into us at every instant, just hidden from our usual mind. Recognizing its touch takes us from self-awareness across the threshold into…

One Easy Tool to Help You be Mindful and Positive

Time is an illusion. The past is not real, only a memory. So, too, the future… merely speculation. The only time that’s real is NOW. That’s why the only time I’m truly able to connect to Higher Intelligence (Higher Self, Tao, God, Universe, whatever you call It) is NOW. I need that connection, that guidance, in order to live life to the fullest... in order to achieve my dreams. When I know what I want in life, the Universe (or the conscious totality of everything that exists)… continuously reveals the path to my dreams. Why? Because I’m here to experience…

From Survive to Thrive

What matters is living life fearlessly from your authentic self by embracing happiness and love. You have an option in every moment. You can suffer—from worries, stress and anxieties that are woven into the fabric of everyday life—or choose empowerment. Breathe deeply, dance wildly, sing to the sparrows or indulge in hilarious laughter. Take brief respites from your endless list of tasks and drop into stillness. The spacious silence is a profound place to reawaken your intuition, creativity and life force. Instead of reacting from a jumble of emotions, develop inner calmness and shift from survive to thrive! Even in the…

How To Become An Explorer of Your Life

Wonder. Curiosity. Awe. Amazement. As we grow, we often lose these childlike qualities that make life a true gift. If we're lucky, we have our own children, and get to rediscover the newness of the world. But that curiosity can be hard to hold onto. We often get stuck in life. We are told that this is the way things are. We are told not to ask questions. We are limited by fears or voices in our heads that tell us our dreams aren't possible. We forget that solutions exist outside of the multiple choice options we have been given.…

What Would You Like to Experience Now?

Effortless endless miracles are your birthright. Your nature. Infinite Being projects out of eternity into the dream of time and space for one purpose only: to have experience. At the level of Eternity, there is no change, no movement, no experience. So, You chose to project into time and space - all of the contrasts and dualities. You chose to experience 'limitation'. The illusion of danger, death and problems. You chose to experience a seeming world full of 'institutionalized' energies: religious, spiritual, medical, governmental, educational, cultural 'pre-existing' systems that would limit your freedom and options. All so you could have…

Open Your Eyes to Love

What I have experienced in my life has shown me that love is real, and that we are here on Earth to experience love in action through living our Vision of life. I am not referring to love as in the Cinderella story which requires one person to complete another. Rather I now have a clear awareness that love is a vibrational energy that transcends our lives from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Love starts with self. Learning to overcome one's own self-blame, shame and guilt is the starting point to self-love. When I release negative thoughts and past regrets,…

Be Your Inner Child, Don’t Just Get In Touch!

I was enjoying a conversation with a new friend. One of the things that came up was the idea of the "inner child." My friend told me how important it was for her to keep her inner child alive, well and active. I took that to mean she has a part of herself that she hides away from the world - that there is a private joy no one else gets to see. Maybe she's in a position in life where she has to conceal some of the essence of who she truly is...that happiness that bubbles up from the…

Getting Off the Train of Thought

“All aboard! The train of thought is leaving the station! All aboard!” “Where is the train of thought going?” asks a would be passenger standing on the platform. “I don't know,” the conductor responds. “When will the train return to this station?” another curious person asks, but jumps on the train before hearing the answer. The conductor shrugs his shoulders and states, “Too hard to tell.” “Does the train of thought make any stops? What if I want to get off?” another possible passenger nervously inquires, but joins her fellow traveler in boarding without waiting for the information. The conductor…
