If today were to become my very last day to walk this Earth – if, in the next moment, I took my very last breath – I would want to instill into you a sense of peace and an urgency to love. Imagine what it would feel like to wrap yourself in a warm blanket of sparkling gold light. As the light engulfs you, you become lighter. You feel so warm, safe and free as you spin around and dance effortlessly. The gold light is pure and radiant love. It becomes you, and you become it. Intertwined, you are one… Read more.
I long for you to know the beauty I see in you, to know that you are enough just as you are, that you are loved beyond measure and capable of anything. I long for you to know that you are an infinite soul here simply to have the human experience, to share your gifts and find your way home to love. There is no place but right here. There is no time but right now. You chose this brave life, you are home, you have arrived. Release the striving for more, YOU are the more. Release comparing yourself with… Read more.
Look deeply with the eyes of love and you will clearly see the hidden beauty at the heart of creation, perceiving it in the midst of human cruelty as well as displayed in the marvels of Nature.
Everyone’s life path has a beauty. It is not for us to judge the quality of one’s experience.
Reflect on your beauty within and live it.
As my outside ages, my intention is to become stunningly beautiful on the inside.
When you choose to be who you are, you dispel any lies that mask your beauty, your potential, your radiance or your love. And what’s revealed is the True and Radiant You.
Spring has arrived, and I invite you to take some time in this magical season to truly connect with the Earth. You are the Earth. Your bones are made out of particles that were once a part of mountains. Your cells are surrounded and penetrated by the ocean. The breath that moves through you once moved through mighty cedar trees and baby pandas. And all the plants and herbs that you partake of come from a love affair with the sun! To connect with the Earth is to remember that you are a part of the mysterious and awesomely creative… Read more.
Since the days of Snow White, mirrors have talked to women. Now it’s time to talk back.
Substance before style, always.
Every second is a second chance to see beautiful.
If you see beauty every day, you won’t need to build walls to separate yourself from others.
Everyone experiences difficulties, heartache and drama but the truth of who you are is never found in the loss, the sadness or the pain that being human brings. The real truth of who you are is a beauty as constant as the northern star.

When you feel good physically, you feel good mentally as well – and naturally radiate beauty and happiness.
Nothing can ever prepare you for the shock of seeing yourself for the first time after having your breasts removed. Standing in front of the mirror slowly removing the bandages knowing that the breasts that you had for 50 years are not going to be there. And even more so you can never be prepared for having your eight year old son standing there with you, looking on with wonder. However, there he was seeing my chest with stitches going across each side where there once was a breast and nipple. And, out of the mouths of babes as they… Read more.
I am beautiful, I am loved. I will not let what others say define me!
True beauty is knowing your purpose and passion and projecting that outward in everything you do.
Every age has its beauty.
I look within each person who has given up on themselves. If I had imaginary eyes, I would go within each person finding the darkest part of their lives and I would turn the light on those dark areas of their mind, body and soul. When it is dark no one can find their way. We stumble and become confused. When you turn the light on, you can find your way. Once the light is on, you will find the beauty within. You will no longer find thoughts like “I’m not good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, can’t do nothing… Read more.
