Honoring Ourselves with Love and Respect

If I could share all the profound words that have been shared throughout the years, the most honest and powerful words would be 'Honor thyself first, before you attempt to honor others.' When we take time to actually get to know ourselves and spend quality time nurturing our feelings, thoughts, and emotions, we, in turn, will be more of a blessing towards others. It's a wonderful experience when we embrace and respect ourselves to the point where only love lives and all those other useless and judgmental attitudes have vacated. When we teach our spirit to dance and rejoice with…

3 Ways To Reveal Your Talents

Sometimes, we conceal ourselves from ourselves. Not wanting to acknowledge the person we are, in all our special gifts, until we are forced to be guided by the wits of what life has taught us. A failure to engage, stuck in the rut, feeling unfilled, because.... We do that until we grow into this ever-evolving trail of life, eventually seeking ways to find meaning after challenges have found us with no zap in our story. Then we start on the quest to find value in our narratives. We are each bestowed with abilities of wonder, making us this unique blend.…

What Matters To You?

Nothing you are told that matters, really matters! What do I mean by that? Well as we are raised, interact with other children, are taught at schools and then indoctrinated in our jobs and careers, we are constantly told what's important... make a good first impression, look out for number one, find a stable job with good income, buy a house, buy a bigger house, buy a BMW, etc. And so many times, we lose the idea of what's important to US and start to believe that all these things are important to us. We fall in line. But you…

Have you ever asked yourself probing questions that get to the root of your inner self? Have you done the inner questioning to help you uncover your purpose—what your life is calling you to do? We must ask ourselves powerful questions to get to the core of our being. To get you started, ask yourself, "If time and money were not an issue, what would I be doing?"

People have tried different religions or disciplines with varying degrees of success or failure. They have taken motivational workshops to try to discover some meaning to apply to their lives and many have come away wondering, "Is this all there is?" This vague sense of emptiness or dissatisfaction can permeate our lives, even when we accomplish the goals we set for ourselves. People…

Living Brilliantly From Within

You better get ready to change lives for the better! That's what I live for. This life is not for the passion-less but for the passionate. You can't afford to live like you have nothing to lose. And until you completely live free of what can be lost, you will never soar beyond who you are now. You must be completely willing to lose. Your Destiny gains power with each moment of deep inner belief. This life is what's really at risk...so leave nothing for the grave yard because it's not worthy of the dreams you carry within. All that has been poured into me…

Breathe in the Brilliance of You

When I think of words of wisdom that I would like to leave to humanity, I am filled with humility. I envision my children’s faces and realize that my wisdom and my love is all that I will ultimately leave behind.

First and foremost, the highest service I can offer by sharing my wisdom is to compel deep listening to that still, small voice within. That is where the most timeless…

Growth through Writing… Empower Yourself!

Since man formed his first vocabulary, family and tribal news was carried from tribe to tribe, village to village by a storyteller. They would be welcomed in each cave, hut, or council house as an honored guest and nights would be spent around the fire listening to the latest news from family members living afar. Famine, a good harvest, movement of wild herds, warring tribes, births, deaths, alliances, all were carried by the professional storyteller. After a few days passed the news had been told and the storyteller, rested and refreshed, would move to the next tribe or settlement. While…

Deepening Love

By B. Lynn Goodwin. Why can't I get organized, I ask myself. Why do I keep spinning my wheels as I journal? I remembered the words of Temescal Writers leader Joan Marie Wood, who said, "If you keep writing about the same thing over and over, it means you have more to say." Could I be having issues again about whether or not my stories are mine to share? As a general rule, if it’s my story I have a right to share it, knowing it’s my emotional memory and no one else’s. Besides, that’s a concern to address down…

Quick, Before it Melts!

If you want to learn the greatest lessons in life, pay attention to Mother Earth. Nature has a way of showing us the things we need to learn, including the inevitability of change. Springtime in the Rocky Mountains is the perfect example. Just yesterday we had the biggest blizzard of the year- more than two feet of pristine white powder blanketed our world. The day was dark, cloudy and overcast as we were buried with snow. Today, spring is back, the sun is blazing, the temperatures are soaring into the 50’s AND we still have tons of snow covering the…
