An Open Heart Heals

The willingness to meet whatever is showing up in our lives takes courage.  Did you know that the root for the word courage means “of the heart”?   It takes an open heart and deep compassion to see all of the conditioned stories in our heads that keep us separate from life.  It takes courage to see them, love them and, under that gaze of compassion, allow them to evaporate like the summer fog when it is touched by the morning sun. I have been experiencing a lot of pain in my back and leg for quite some time now. …

5 Ways to Make Every Day Count

My Dad always told me to live each day as if it were my last, and as a child the specter of one's last day always seemed like a remote possibility. But with maturity and experience comes the realization that it's not just about one's last day, but also the lost chances and opportunities in life that should also be seen through a lens of hope and caring. So as you go about your daily chores it's always best to do all you can to make every day count. Be positive and upbeat: We all can find the glass that…

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…

Be Courageous Enough to Follow Your Dreams

I love to see people discover their passion so they can enjoy living fuller, empowered lives. I believe you will find your passion when you gather the courage to do something different. If what you are doing today does not thrill you, if you don't spring out of bed looking forward to what each new day will hold, you owe it to yourself to make changes. Dare yourself to take action toward pursuing your true purpose. When I resigned after nearly 20 years in advertising sales to pursue my passion for writing, friends said how "brave" I was. I had…

Trust, Leap, Surrender

Perhaps the most important principles I've learned through the years are the ones that inextricably link life and creativity, the ones that keep me open to the infinite, that help me surrender to the unknowable, that push me beyond the bounds of what I can imagine. I've also learned to be open to the synchronistic and the miraculous, to the numinous and the unseen. I've learned that not everything plays out as I expect. I've learned to trust my intuition above all else...even when that intuition doesn't appear to make sense. If I were a tarot card, I'd be The…

6 Things You Need for a Fulfilling Life

I have survived cancer four times, two open-heart surgeries and multiple brushes with death over my 46 years. What do I know about life? Or more accurately, what do I think I know? Well, I think I know this. I need love as much as I need air, water and food to survive and flourish. I have to love everyone but you don’t have to like him or her. The closer people are to me, the more love I radiate towards them and the more I accept their presence. Acceptance is the key to serenity. I only control my actions, not…

Use Your Pain to Get the Life You Want

Allow your pain to become your message! We all have a past and there is nothing you can do about it. You can't turn back the hands of time. What you can do is take the lessons that you've learned and pass them on to someone else. Your past does not dictate your future. Allow what happened to you in the past to make you a better person. Instead of looking back in your past with regrets, think of what you gained and be willing to use them to make your life better. Remember that you will not receive a…

3 Tips for Building Personal Courage

I wasn't always afraid of heights. As a kid, I climbed trees and swung from the monkey bars - and you did, too, didn't you? So what happened between ages 10 and age 40 that made me (us) incapable of standing on the edge of anything? What happened was that somewhere along the way, I let fear close a door. And after it closed one door, it closed others, until I was not just afraid of heights, but afraid to ride my bicycle too fast, or even climb a ladder. "My life is fine without those things," I thought. Then,…

How to Access Your Intuitive Wisdom

What matters most to me is trusting my intuitive wisdom and having the courage to follow where it leads. For example, a few years ago, I boarded a train heading from London to Nottingham. It was a two hour journey and I recalled having picked up a magazine in a mind-body-spirit bookstore, which I had stuffed into my bag. Taking it out, I began reading an article. Halfway through, I heard a voice saying, “You can do this. You can write articles that inspire people.” The voice was so loud I looked around to see who had spoken, though I…

All Things Are Possible

Anything is possible, especially if we unite and stand together. Love is the key. Remember being children? Remember when our imagination allowed us to believe that anything is possible? What happened? See, over time, as we have experienced an often difficult and challenging world, one in which fear has become prominent, our mind and hearts have had a hard time staying open and optimistic. Our mind and hearts have started functioning in scarcity mode rather than sufficiency, believing that we were not enough or would not have enough, that perhaps, nothing would ever be enough. These past few years, we have found ourselves…

Should I Take the First Step in a Relationship?

"Two weeks ago my crush sent me a friendship request on Facebook and he told me that he likes me. I was so happy but since then we haven't talked. I texted him once after that but the last message is always mine -- I feel like he's not interested in me anymore. The sad part is that I will never see him again after this week , he's going to another country! And I don't know if I should tell him that I like him or not -- what if he ignores me and I'll look so stupid? What should I do, please?" ~…

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.

All the nurses…
