Finding Your Formula

Thanksgiving… a time of reflection, of gratitude, and the winding down of an entire year. Time is such an interesting concept. Yet if we are living in the present, I do believe we can get more out of a day, than when we are focusing on the past or looking too...

Getting in Alignment

Alas, the end of the year has arrived, and it was quite a blur if you ask me. Wow, and yet so much change has indeed been the theme of my 2017 year. There has been so much attention to my thinking and awareness of catching myself in moments where I needed to shift my...

Power of Mindful Prayers

I simply marvel at the power of our thoughts-and how they produce results. With that being said, are you monitoring your thoughts in a positive direction? I study deeper parts of my mind. I like to carve out time to reflect, to ponder, and to simply be. When we are in...

The Spiritual Warrior Checklist

 Each day we are greeted with a new dawn, and it is up to us to create a checklist shall we say of how to navigate through times of stress, or even just to a more joyful existence on a day-to-day basis. Having an inner place to go to, can be quite delicious. It can...

The Rhythm and Waves of Life

 There is such a fluid quality to life.  Things are always changing.  Forever in motion.  So are our feelings and emotions.  It’s fascinating to me how different we can feel day to day, moment to moment.  There is a fine balance to be struck within ourselves.  I just...

Danger/Opportunity

 The Japanese symbol for “crisis” is made up of two symbols.  The first being “danger”, and the second being “opportunity”.  This really spoke to my heart.  Especially at this time and space in our universe. There is a climate of “crisis”.  Whether it is globally or...

Strength Becomes a Muscle

 “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” (Maya Angelou) Today a wonderful friend sent me a text with one of those sayings you find on the internet.  It struck me deeply.  I was bowled over...

Be A Maker and Maintainer of Peace

 Peace is something that comes from within.  It is not something that just appears when we want it.  It is something we must hold in our consciousness. The longer we hold it, and the more we practice that sense of peace, then it becomes a daily force in our lives. ...

Embracing the Struggle

As we all know life has its challenges.  Sometimes when we least expect it, we get hit with things that we don’t want to handle, or perhaps we don’t know how to handle. This past year I have watched many people go through loss, hurts, setbacks.  We are all subject to...

Being Authentic

 There comes a time when each one of us is able to peer into our more authentic self, and see something more of ourselves. Sometimes it presents itself, in order for us to make changes, and sometimes it is to inspire that part inside that has been yearning for a...

Facing Fear

Courage is innate in all of us.  It is an element that comes forth when we are in a place of fear, or perhaps a quandary of what to do, and which ways to turn in our lives.  For me, sometimes I feel paralyzed on how to move forward, but when I step back I can see a...

Shifts

 Recently what has had my attention is the ability to shift with circumstances, people, and many of the variables that life hands us.  It is a gentle element that can serve you well, when you can shift your emotions, or your opinions, or even your spiritual...

Maintaining The Peaceful Moments

It’s funny how we can get to a really good place inside ourselves, only to have it all come crashing down in a matter of moments. As I live my life, my focus and my inner work has lead me to develop a series of inner tools, that can get help maintain and sustain, an...

Being True

Being true to yourself is not as easy as one would think.  It is almost like a true commitment to your character.  So often we want to please, or be liked, or rather “think we should” do this or that.  Breaking the chain of thinking and letting go of that dialogue in...

Riding The Waves

 Life can be rather interesting.  It can be graceful and beautiful, as well as turbulent and scary.  It is so amazing to me what a difference a day can make.  So how do you ride the waves of the ups and downs of life?  The bible has a great verse that says, “to be in...

Inspiration

 When I ask myself what and where my inspiration comes from, I realized that it is that voice inside me that is connected to something far greater than my own understanding.  I believe it is how God communicates through me.  That wonderful feeling that takes over and...

Deserving Greatness

 A very special person in my life once told me that I deserve “greatness.”  At the time I know it was a beautiful thing to share with me, but I don’t think I ever took the time to really believe what he was sharing with me.  As I have time to live my life, and of...

Preparing for Greatness

  Each moment lends to the next moment. It is like a time continuum. Our thoughts make it so. The discipline of the mind is crucial. It is like a diet shall we say. For example, not eating the chocolate cake—we know it is going to taste so delicious, but it is...

Creating More Of What You Want

 Good nutrition of course plays a crucial role in our attempt to wellness.  My definition of wellness, encompasses a total unified approach.  Body, mind and spirit.  Sometimes it is hard to incorporate all these elements, and sometimes it is easy.  When you set forth...

En-Joy!

 With the New Year comes a new excitement.  We are all so focused on what we want to bring into this New Year, as well as what we want to let go of.  It is a special time of great focus and great enthusiasm. I think what comes to my mind the most, is being more...

Cancel Out Your Doubt

 Easier said than done for sure.  How can we change that doubting mind?  That place inside all of us that starts to question, take apart, and just sends us reeling!  How can we just let go, when all the evidence around us makes us feel uneasy and full of doubt?  Once...

Is Your Internal GPS Working?

 There comes a time when we figure out a thing or two in life.  We rely on that inner part of ourselves to navigate our lives.  More and more I rely on that part of myself. I call it my GPS.  Most of us wake up in the morning and start our day without even giving...

Beauty

Beauty: the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design, or pattern, or something else! To focus on the beauty of who...
