Wishing for More? Stop Focusing on the Negative!

If you're like 90% of the population, you have a tendency to blame some friend that seems "have it out" for you. It feels like they're deliberately trying to hold you back, or at the very least, trying to sabotage your success. So you sit there feeling angry, frustrated, deflated or maybe even slightly depressed. You're probably talking about how nothing ever goes right. You're probably hanging out with other people who are constantly talking about it too and I would be willing to be that you're probably even talking about it on Facebook and Twitter! And as you continue…

Small Steps Today, Big Steps For Your Future

I was always inspired by the hippie saying, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life...." Though I had been trained to believe that I had a limited world and that I'd better adapt to it, I knew deep inside that at all times I (and others) had the ability to change my mind. By the pure grace of God (because believe me, I was not looking for it!), I discovered consciousness-raising programs with amazing exercises and learned that if I change my beliefs, it changes my mindset/attitude, and most importantly, it changes my results. I decided to…

Obstacles are Meaningless Next to Your Intention

Never let anyone or anything stand in your way of what you really want! Brilliant words, but the meaning and lesson behind it made the difference to me in changing my life. How many times have we settled for the first No? How many times has someone said you cannot and you accepted that answer? How many times have you not done what you wanted or gotten what you wanted because of money? If you are like me, many, many times. I am inspired by the magic and the ability of setting an intention. Finding an obstacle for it helps…

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…

Life Begins When You Do

That each decade of my life I learned my lessons from my obstacles and my joys. I collected them in writing. In my twenties I wrote my longings: these were foundational to my life manifestations. Create. Write. Inspire. Serve. These days that's called the law of attraction. The ancients said and I saw it as true - our lives become what we think about. Or, "what you feed, grows." In my thirties I gathered my intentions: Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Laugh. Play with abandon. Practice wellness. Continue to learn. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your…

Steps to True Happiness

Under the umbrellas of intention and authenticity lie core values we can foster which will help lead us to, and maintain, the ultimate state of happiness - to be happy with yourself.

How Can I Learn to Hear God?

"I was raised a Christian and have prayed for 50 years. Lately it seems that God isn't listening. How can I increase the connection to make my life work better?" ~ Bob, Prince Edward Island, Canada Dear Bob, God talks in many ways, aurally, visually, empathically, noetically… any of your senses can be utilized. An important tool is learning to acutely discern what I call the “BIG MIND” and the chatter of “little mind”. ”BIG MIND” thoughts drop cohesively into the top of my head, just like an idea. Personally, I hear it much like I hear an idea when it…

Looking Back to Move Forward

There are all kinds of strategies for thinking about time that aim to inspire. We often look forward in order to envision the life we want and then use that aspiration to create a plan to create our future. Of course, we are also cautioned to “live in the present” so that we do not allow precious hours to slip away. After all, tomorrow never comes, it is always today. But, I would like to suggest a different orientation. At least once a year, it is important to take a lesson from research on regret. When you ask young people…

Is It Possible to Control My Thoughts In the Moment?

"I have been reading the Power of Now and rereading A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. So much of what he says resonates with me. I have been trying to apply many of the principles. Because I tend to live so much in my head, it's not an easy task to quiet my mind or simple just observe my thoughts. However, I am working on it :-) The most challenging part for me is with my kids. I try hard not to react but instead respond. When I set this intent, it works for a little while but then I…
