Your Discontent is the First Step Toward Awakening

In our day-to-day lives, most of our attention tends to focus on the realities of the conventional world: our relationships, perhaps raising children, going to school or work, addressing issues in the areas of health and finances. At the same time, we each experience, from time to time or even persistently, that whispered voice of our heart or higher self, reminding us and calling us to look beyond the conventional world to a higher or transcendent reality. Sometimes we experience a sudden wake-up call — a loss or change that forces us to consider what life is really about and…

Are You Bound to Be Happy?

What is it that we seek in life? It is to be happy. We express our happiness when we experience something that is pleasurable or satisfying. Yet, maintaining the happiness we find is like trying to hold onto a fish freshly pulled from the water. As hard as we try, it keeps slipping from our grasp. And since it requires some event or experience (which are temporary to our existence) to bring it about, we can understand why it is so fleeting. Living in itself is a happy prospect; without which there can be no further opportunities for future happiness…

Your Life? Your Choice!

Your life is your choice. How often have we felt helpless in the face of everything that seems to hold us back? The past, the present, money, relationships, weight, appearance, self-esteem, education, connections - we can come up with so many reasons for why we aren't successful. The power to transcend all of that and become who you were meant to be lies within you and the choices you make. Ultimately, you assign meaning to your circumstances; they don't assign meaning to you. No matter where you've been or what you've been through, you can start today and make your…

Remember to Learn Your Life Lessons

It is my belief that the most important things in life are the lessons we learn while we are here. Through our passion, willingness to take risks, the assurance that it is OKAY to fail, along with deep love and heartfelt relationships, we learn the most important lessons in life. A lifetime filled with lessons is your e-ticket ride to living passionately, with a sense of unstoppability, and the deep desire to go for your dreams and chase what you love. If you are not faced with tests throughout your life, there is no way to defend and clarify what…

Orient Your Consciousness

It is unwise to sail to sea without a navigation system. Likewise, navigating the intricacies and challenges of life also needs special guidance. For your soul wisdom grows from your consecration. My consecration is to release any thought that closes my heart even in the slightest and to always begin my life right where I am. It is to refuse to allow fear or suffering, even physical pain, to make me self-involved. Consecration is the pole star by which you invent yourself as a spiritually oriented conscious person. But how do you know or discover your consecration? Ask yourself: What…

Challenge Yourself to Dream

I sat here thinking of what would inspire, challenge, encourage and empower each of you which was really a challenge for there are so many things to share. As I thought more about the concept, I kept hearing "Give them Permission to Dream". We have all had dreams at one time in our life and then life got in the way. I challenge you today to stop and take a deep breath and repeat these words: I, ______________, give myself permission to dream, visualize and step in faith to set goals that will take me to where I want to…

What’s Really Our Purpose In Life?

Life should be fun! Every aspect of it is a thrill beyond anything we can describe or imagine. We have all heard the saying that "we are spiritual beings having a human experience." Think about that. Most of us live our lives as if we must find some higher consciousness or grand purpose for why we are here when in reality "we are" the purpose. Our human-ness is our purpose. We are already divine beings and all the things we think we are not and must drive ourselves to become are already ours. We came "down" to be human not…

How You Can Find Your Internal Compass

Listen for your own deep questions and follow them. Let them guide you the way a compass guides a lost traveler, marking true north when there are no maps... or when the maps you have no longer show the way to where you want to go. Listening like this is soul level listening. You have to be willing, or longing, or desperate enough to turn away from other people's answers. You have to turn toward your unknown self. To take time. Your question doesn't have to look like a question. It can be a fragment of conversation you overheard on…

My passion to help others to achieve their highest health potential has served me well in my current career-and it…

Transform Your Perception, Transform Your Fear

If only we still faced tigers in the woods every day! Our bodies evolved to handle physical threats like that, not the mental, psychological and emotional threats we now face constantly. Your body's chemicals are not at war with each other, but it certainly feels that way at times! Each of us produces more than 50 hormones, which collectively control how we behave, what we feel and how we respond to the world. The sympathetic nervous system produces fight-or-flight hormones whenever we perceive a threat, taking over from the parasympathetic nervous system, whose hormones keep us calm and serene. But…

Don’t Regret Your Experiences, Embrace Them!

We all have stories that make us smile and others that we prefer to forget. We all have experienced personal and professional ups and downs. This is part of the human experience and we should appreciate every moment. Do not regret the past, as difficult as that may be. The past is behind you with nothing but knowledge in its wake. You can't change the past, so why not make it an educational tool no different than when you first learned to ride a bike? Do not be disappointed or discouraged about today. Today is temporary and tomorrow is on…

How to Worry Smart

The trouble with worrying is that it can get completely out of control and has a habit of escalating. Actor/director Woody Allen, a famous worrywart, illustrated this best when he said, "If I get chapped lips, I think it's brain cancer." Worrying is a kind of "stuckness". Worrywarts get stuck in identifying danger as they immerse themselves in the dread associated with the threat, which may be real or, more likely, imagined." Don't think worrying is bad for you. Think of it as a mental fire drill, a thinking through of things that potentially might happen. It's good to think…

What is Real Wealth?

What is it that I can give to you or you to me that brings each of us pleasure or new insight, that depletes neither of us, and that we can then pass on to others without losing anything of our own? What is it we can give to each other that improves the quality of living for both of us, and does so without exhausting the vital resources of our planet? What is it that cannot be taken from us in the way we can lose a job, our savings, or even a loved one? This is real wealth.…

8 Success Tips for Living Happily

Here's what I believe to be the success of living happily... 1) Have a dream. It may be lofty or small - but it should be yours. And it must do two things. It should make you happy. And it should be of value to others. 2) Live your dream with passion. Passion is the energy that fires the spark of your desire, fans it into a glorious flame, and shows off your radiant brilliance. 3) Pursue your dream with determination. Believe with all your heart that it will come true, no matter how remote or difficult or impossible it…

Accepting Responsibility for Where You Are

The greatest power that you hold is the power of choice, because every choice you make dictates every result you get in your life - good or bad. And most importantly, every decision you make starts in your mind. All of us start out with this incredible power, yet so many give it away by refusing to step up and be accountable for their decisions. Sadly, most people choose to be a victim of circumstances and others, and never recognize that they are choosing that position. Look at some of the most successful people in the world, or even those…

3 Steps to Live Intentionally

There is absolutely no reason for anyone to live a dimmed existence marked by resignation, suffering, struggle, scarcity, strained relationships, ineffective communication, and diminished self esteem. When we can embrace life as a learning process that is full of exciting opportunities for us to learn, break though our stops and limitations, and experience new possibilities to become our best, we give up our right to be invalidated or disempowered. We know that the seeds of our growth lie in that difficult person, that challenging relationship, and that problem that keeps us from effortlessly skating though life. So, not only does…

20 Tips That Will Change Your Life

Here’s a list of 20 things that I have learned in life and would like to share with the rest of humanity: Spend money on experiences instead of things. Having fun in life is unarguably important in life, so pull pranks on people you love. But remember, every time you pull a prank on someone, you should expect one in return. Learn the difference between knowing when it’s appropriate to laugh at yourself and when it’s time to take yourself seriously. Don’t ever smoke cigarettes - kids don’t like the smell. Write a book. To start, create 3 folders (on…

Don’t Do, BE

We spend too much time doing and not enough Being. Our lives are structured around activity: work, raising children, hobbies, exercise or sports, studying, entertainment (concerts, restaurants, movies, video games, reading), traveling, having sex, and so on. The list of things we do is practically infinite. Even when we aren't doing much, we're mostly likely thinking about or planning things we want to do in the future. We spend very little time just Being. We don't even know what this means and why it's important, let alone how to do it. When we are Being rather than doing, we have…

Understanding Life After Death Frees You to Live Now

All of our lives here on Earth, we are learning lessons. In my life, I have learned from many teachers, both alive and dead. And I've always said that if everyone knew what I knew - how we go on in spirit form after we die our physical death, and how beautiful and perfect it is on the Other Side - they would not longer be afraid to die, or be afraid to live. Here on Earth, all of our words and actions are subject to the spiritual laws of cause and effect, also known as karma. Anything we say…
