Are You Willing to Take Advice?

I don't think anybody needs a speech on what is right and what is wrong. Most people don't want to be told how to live their lives either. Through the years, I've continually fought against everyone's advice. If I could go back with the knowledge I have now and with what I have experienced, things would be so very different. Even basic "listen to your parents" kind of advice -- and I know that, yes, I should have listened to my parents more. Besides the typical teen screw-ups, which I think most of us are guilty of, it can get…

The Spark That Lives In You!

There is a spark of vitality that lives in you. This spark is a miracle that only you can bring to life. It is your gift, your purpose, your passion...your presence. You must nurture this spark, and allow it to grow. Be curious, compassionate, courageous and committed as you discover what this is in you. Because it is unique to you and only you, I cannot tell you with certainty how you'll find it or know it. I just know that you must. When you find it, and I trust that you will, if you haven't already, the next step…

Wisdom To Nourish The Inner Self

There is an intelligence to the universe that is too vast for humans to understand. Therefore, be sure to have ample time in nature to see a spectacular planet inspiring hope and insights that result in creative solutions. Everyone has important work to do that makes a difference. Make sure you have time alone to think deeply about your contribution, without interruption, daily. Treat your thinking with respect. We can learn from mistakes; but it is never helpful to you, or anyone else, to just put yourself down. Expect knockdowns as a normal part of life's challenges. Each one presents…

Bring Out Your Inner Diamond

I believe that each of us is a rock, the most beautiful, strongest rock imaginable - a diamond. You are a diamond, and like that precious stone your life has many facets which took years to forge. Diamonds begin as lumps of carbon deep in the earth's surface. Years of extreme pressure and force shape them into unique, amazing stones. Isn't life like this? Over time you go through great pressures and forces that shape the person you become. Extracting diamonds takes work; they don't just magically rise to the earth's surface. The same is true for your life. Cultivating…

The Secret To True Leadership

What does it take to be a leader in your business, your community, your family and your relationships? Try being a servant. The concept of "servant leadership" in business, developed by Robert K. Greenleaf and popularized by Steven Covey, proposes that one becomes a successful leader primarily by meeting the needs of others rather than one's own. This causes others to feel valued and respected, which in turn leads to their respecting and valuing their leader and perhaps their employer. It's a pretty powerful concept, which you can adapt to all of your relationships. If you focus on meeting others'…

The Fastest Way To Happiness

The fastest way to happiness and peace is the absolute acceptance of WHO YOU ARE right in this moment. The nature of humanness is divinity. This is evident in many of the daily "miracles" of our existence: our body, the seasons, the supreme organization of the universe. We know this in our cells, our bones. There is a deep resonance to the truth that we are all connected, that divinity expresses ITSELF as us, exactly as we are. The ego says, "Ok, you have the capacity to love and sure, you might be an expression of the divine, but until…

You Can Have It All!

Life is not an ALL or nothing situation. I've spent a lot of years thinking that it was. Thinking that if I had plenty of time to spend with my family it meant that I couldn't have a successful career. Or that if I had a lot of income coming in that I couldn't or even shouldn't enjoy what I was doing. The either/or scenario seemed to overshadow me. But I've started to notice that the times in my life when I am most happy are when I am in "both" mode. Like when I work efficiently during the day…

Make Your Life a Work of Art

Conscientiously make your life a wonderful, beautiful piece of art. Slow down! Live. Be aware of your surroundings. Sometimes we are so wrapped up in our daily lives that we don't take the time to see, hear and smell the every day beauty that surrounds us - something as simple as a blade of green grass, the crisp popping sound of a flag blowing in the wind, the smell of gas fumes from a passing bus. Okay, so bus fumes are bad, but that's not the point. The point is - you're ALIVE to smell those bus fumes! You're experiencing,…

How To Live Fully and Joyously

Reignite longing for the love you sought with first breath in this life; Recall the dream that called you here, the call you recognize. You are not what others label you, nor can you be unloved; Your path through life is blessed by Earth below and sky above. Even feeling weak and troubled, your words and smiles heal; You are the very conduit by which dreams become real. You are not the triumphs nor the troubles you or others think you caused; Nor are you bad or evil, nor can you ever be truly lost. The purest essence of your…

How To Be A Spark Of Inspiration For Others

Creating and inventing something are a reflection of who you are - a spark of inspiration in action for others. It helps you change the world for the better and keep a positive focus on the future. It is your creativity that makes you great - and it is the foundation that drives your innovator spirit and expands your vision. Recognize that when you are told "you are a blessing in my life", it is not only a reward but it validates your expertise and dedication to color the lives of others. Understand that innovation can play a significant role…

3 Inspirational Steps To Brighten Your Day!

Love is all there is. The energy of love is the basis for all you know. You and every soul were born of love and you and every soul want to vibrate closer and closer to the vibration of love. When you vibrate closer to the energy of love, you become happier, freer, more creative, more joyful, and more vibrant. Perhaps romantic love is the expression most equated with the significance of love, but intimate passion is only one form. To love is to feel joy and pleasure toward any person, place, thing, or idea. Love is fire. Love is…

The Sacred Power That Holds You

The most profound wisdom I have gained since my challenge with cancer and financial hardship 11 years ago is this: We are not alone here. No matter how dark it gets in our lives or how alone we feel, there is a divine presence, call it grace or a Higher Power, that supports, protects, and guides us through the storm. The magic and miracles associated with the Law of Attraction or synchronicity appear mild when compared to this powerful, compassionate presence. With minimal effort on your part, you are brought exactly what you need to become your best and accomplish the…

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…

The Truth About You

You are loved. You have always been loved, even since before your birth as the person you think yourself to be. You are much more, much, much more. In fact, you are love. You came from love, you are living a life of giving and receiving love, and you will return to love. Love is all there is, regardless of what name any of us might give it and how separate we might have come to feel from it. When you know you are loved, it is easy to love others. It's easy to forgive them too. It's even easy to love…

Ways You Can Honor Your Life

We as human beings have the ability to speak, which means to have access to what has been taught and what has been thought. We also have the ability to talk, which means to have access to the wisdom within. To speak and to talk might mean the same thing but are energetically different. The difference between them is to let our lives be dictated by others or being true to our inner selves. The most profound and important thing we can do to honor our life. We all have access to this wisdom and we all have the choice…

5 Principles To Lead A Fulfilled Life

1. To learn anything, you cannot be afraid to ask questions. This fear no doubt harkens back to grade school, when other kids would poke fun at the kid who asked for clarification on something. Unfortunately, most people don't grow out of it, fearing others will think them simple. The reality is, while everyone is an expert at something, no one can be an expert in everything. If you don't ask, you won't learn. Ask questions until you are satisfied you understand the answer. This may be the only opportunity you have to learn. Don't miss out on the experience.…

The Circle of Love

Life is precious. Often we get distracted by day-to-day trivia - those oh-so-important must have's and must do's on our lists. But, in the end, most things and activities don't matter people do. That's what hit me - hard - as I visited my father in the ICU. In one week, he had endured two open heart surgeries - the first one planned, followed by an emergency second one to correct the first one gone bad. Magically, all trivia vanished. Priorities crystallized. The power of love and human connection reigned. It soothed, healed, and beckoned hope. It was palpable. My…

Let The Truth Set You Free!

Listen to and act on your truth. Based on the 25 years I've been facilitating people, I can say that one of the most common "diseases" that many people suffer from is the failure to live by their truth. I see too many people that live the life that they were conditioned into living by adhering to standards other than their own. They don't live the life that is suitable for them, one that allows them to express their unique individuality or that is aligned with their individual truth. This entails the price of constant inner conflict and lack of…

Are You Saying Yes To Life?

I continually advocate how essential it is to do the inner work and have the courage to face your inner demons when that may be the last place you wish to go because of the anticipated pain. For me, it has been about looking at all the ways I am still playing small and hiding out instead of showing up and claiming my destiny. Sometimes we play the "What if..." game when dealing with fear about change. I can understand why the inner journey can feel intimidating and scary. It's unpredictable and invites a lot of change. The unknown brings…

How To Do Divine Business

Businesses can and should be mechanisms for doing great God driven things in this world. Money is not bad, unless it becomes the first objective and thus the idol to be sought and worshiped. Many companies know this and succeed in many ways, while they are directed by purposes other than money. Ironically, they also succeed financially, because they have higher goals, not in spite of them. Unfortunately this is harder for public companies, but even many of them do not put money first, and thus reap rewards for themselves and people in general. I have been blessed in my…
