Change Your Focus – Change Your Experience

I recently had the honor of interviewing Neil Findlay on The Empowerment Show. In his episode, we discussed his charity work. He helps children living on the street in Madagascar who may be as young as five years old. No resources. No education. No future. A situation he could only describe as hopelessness.  He also works with teens in Australia who often turn to drugs and alcohol due to their family situations. The teens have access to everything - food, shelter, education, and technology - yet there the suicide rate is rising. Suicide is rare in Madagascar where living conditions are…

Waking Up to Gratitude

I have a beautiful friend named Marsha, who has been married to Harry for over 40 years. Marsha says, "When I wake up in the morning and realize I am breathing, and then I hear that Harry is breathing too, then I just know it's going to be a good day." Since Marsha shared her morning ritual, I have taken on a similar attitude. While still in bed, before I move a muscle, I cast a joyful anticipation of all the possibilities the day holds for me and I give thanks for the opportunity to live it. As I move…

Hope Is Not A Strategy

There was a time when my life was going ok. I was working a lot of hours, making a lot of money, and enjoying my free time. Like many of you, I suspect, this was ok. At the time I was working about 70 hours a week. I was struggling to make it through the day, and hoping that things would get better. I hoped that my career would slow down. I hoped that I would be able to take some time off soon. I hoped that I could begin to take better care of myself. Then things began to go…

Bouncing with Style: Better Boundaries

Yesterday I read a book about boundaries. Why? I had to for one of my upcoming shows.  Much to my delight, I started understanding what that bandied-about term meant in relation to me, my family and friends, and my kids. Even my dogs will benefit from my reading the material. We hear a lot in the media about boundaries. Gotta set boundaries. That’s a boundary violation. I have firm boundaries.  I have no boundaries. But what does that really mean? I started thinking about how boundaries are being erased as we groove into a society where personal choice often trumps the rights…

Learning to be Self-Full in Divine Order

Through my 43 years, I have learned to be comfortable in my own skin by understanding that I must have GOD first in everything I do and say. When I was 34 years, I had a moment of self-discovery. I realized my life was flashing by, and I did not feel complete as a woman. There were many things personally I wanted to accomplish before I settled into a relationship/marriage and have children. But I questioned those ideas - will I ever get married or is marriage in my future? Do I want to get married, and have children? Yes,…

Life CAN Be Great – It’s a Choice!

Love with your heart, not your eyes. Pick your battles wisely. Never, ever give up: you might miss the miracle! Believe in miracles. There is beauty everywhere; open your eyes to see it. Be grateful, for everything. Trust the greater plan is better than the life you think you must have. You might have strength beyond what you could ever imagine. Faith is critical. It's not all about you. The time you don't make for someone could be everything to them. Love unconditionally. Communicate! No matter what, ALWAYS say your truth. Just make sure and say it nicely. Set boundaries.…

How Can I Solve My Financial Problems?

"I'm doing financially horrible. I needed to get some food and household items... I was flat broke and I had no other choice than to take my 7 year old boys' Xbox back. I feel so bad, I'm losing sleep. Did I do the right thing?" ~ Tiffany, Effingham, IL Dear Tiffany, We all run into problems from time to time, and often they are of a financial nature. I believe that most of the time, the problem comes from our thoughts. The most difficult thing to do when we don't know how we're going to feed our family is…

How Do I Know What the Right Decision Is?

"I am getting ready to move to So. Florida. I was looking into Naples, Florida. I actually always liked more vibrant urban environments, I am originally from Europe, with lots of cafes, bookstores, art galleries, live theater, close to the beaches. However, I decided I want to slow down. Naples is a beautiful place, just seasonal. However, I am getting job offers from Fort Lauderdale (I am an RN) from the hospital chain I once worked for, and by beautiful Las Olas, also opportunities for placement, etc.  It seems like Universe is pushing me to the East Coast versus I was trying to line something…

The Path Meant For You

Ever wish you hadn't made that choice "back then", or that you had taken a different path in life? Why? Don't you know who you are and who you are from? You are a part of the Creator of all that is.

Does Negative News Affect Me?

"I am so upset with all the news and violence today. I wonder if watching it created more of it? If we all watch the news and the sadness, are we in fact creating it? Is that why so many young people are killing others? They are saddened and feel no one cares and see the news of others killing themselves, so they think they should? Is media creating more sadness and violence...? Again, should I turn off my TV and not watch it, or is that a coward's way out? I fear that all the people watching the tragedies…

Why Do I Attract Violent People into My Life?

"Hi Sara, I recently discovered your work and have a strong feeling that this was not random luck. I’m a 48-year woman and I’m not able to move forward in my life. I have always been a loner, not able to connect with people. I had an unpleasant childhood with a dominant mother and 2 long-term relationships in which I experienced violence, both physical and emotional. I’m a very sensitive person, an introvert. I’m having a relationship right now, but I’m not able to connect with him, both physically and emotionally. My boyfriend is 15 years older. I have this…

Can I Choose How to Feel?

"Sometimes I feel as if I'm being torn with all of my responsibilities. Between my job and family responsibilities, I have no time for "fun". Some days I'm so overwhelmed I feel completely depressed and don't know where to turn." From an early age, we as human beings experience upsets wherein we make things up about ourselves, others and the world in general. These interpretations cause us to react emotionally to these upsetting challenges. Generally speaking, most people respond to such challenges with one of three predominant emotional reactions: anger, sadness, or fear. As life goes on, we become accustomed to…

Step Out of the Rush and Into Your Own Life

Before you can step out of the rush and into your own life, you must first see that while anxious, hurried feelings often lend a temporary sense of self-importance, these same racing emotions actually rob you of the power you need to be self-commanding. A brief investigation will confirm this finding. Self-command begins with being able to choose your own direction in life. And whether you're caught in the raging current of a white-water river, or being swept along by a flood of invisible thoughts and feelings, one fact remains: Like it or not, you're going where that current goes.…

‘Lost’ Loved Ones

During the holidays, many of us become acutely aware of “lost” loved ones — family members, friends and colleagues who are no longer with us in physical form. So, instead of experiencing the holidays as a fun and festive time of year, we wind up feeling sad, lonely or even overwhelmed by a sense of grief and loss. I understand. And yet, I know with every fiber of my being that life is eternal. Those loved ones who are no longer in their physical bodies are not gone. They are simply not here in the same way that they were…

Bouncing with Style: Live Smarter

I always thought I was pretty smart. But then I took a look at what I was doing to my body, my mind and my soul on a daily basis. We are constantly inundated with messages from television, magazines, the Internet and family as well as so-called well-meaning friends. Recently, I started to take an internal temperature check on my gut. When I stopped “thinking”, and started thinking about what I was “feeling”, I noticed that some things that sounded right did not feel right. Of course, I had to slow down and limit my sensory input for this to…

Embrace Your True Self

Being brilliant in this world is not possible if we have dimmed our light, because the light is who we are. And if all physical manifestation happens by lowering light into form through thought, we are the light, that chooses the thought, that creates light taking form. We are, ultimately, the light of the world. Through our focus and choice, we form the world of us, and that world then is pooled into the collective whole and affects the whole. Wow. Big responsibility, or big blessing. It all depends on your perspective and choice, about how you want to look…

Forget Criticism – Choose Positivity and Joy!

There is a lot of criticism in the world, but we are our own worst critics. It's easy following the negative path and going down the harmful road. But it's even easier choosing positive choices. My greatest value to the world is leading other peers that have been in my situation or worse and letting them know that "this is our story, this is what we've been through, but we can contribute so much more." We let others put us down so much, but we can make choices to prove them wrong. Life is what you make it. Yes, we…

What is the Difference Between Fate and Free Will?

By Tara Taylor. I frequently get asked what my belief is on the difference between fate and free will is. Fate is that we are meant to meet certain people in our lives and then free will is what we choose to do with that encounter of the situation. Fate is that we all receive messages from the divine; free will is our choice on what we will do with that message. The best way to help you choose a higherself solution is to ask yourself: “Am I treating others the way I would like to be treated?” No matter what…
