In that moment of making a decision or a choice about what to do or not do, pause, then breathe into your Sacred Inner Heart ~ that deepest part of you that is connected to your Soul and Source/your Higher Power ~ and let your Sacred Heart guide you to what feels right and best for you. ...

Listen To Your Heart

Often, we look outside for our teachers.  We seek someone we can learn from and we do learn a great many things from others.  We must remember, though, to allow time to learn from ourselves, to nurture that part of ourselves that provides our inner knowing, our inner guidance.  The core aspect of our being that we are many times afraid to trust, afraid to empower, is there to lead us where we need to go.

It is time to stop looking for one more teacher, one more book to read, one more self-help ... Continue reading [...]

Choosing LOVE Over Fear

When caught up in fear, we are not living from a place of faith, which is a place of empowerment and strength. We may not recognize how deeply disabling our fear is, as it is challenging to see clearly from within the cloud fear creates. We may not recognize how our fears shape the decisions we make, the actions we take, and our entire perspective. ... Continue reading [...]

Happy Dance

Too often, it is easy to get caught up in things outside of ourselves. When we find ourselves overwhelmed, stressed, or just plain overextended, it is an indication we are out of balance. This is a perfect opportunity to take a breathing break to calm and center our self and then to schedule a date with our self to do something that makes us happy. Perhaps walking on the beach, running in a park, reading a book, watching a movie, taking a hot bath, or sharing coffee/tea with a good friend brings ... Continue reading [...]

On LOVING And HEALING Ourselves, Our Communities, Our World

This past week saw the passing of the brilliant and amazing Robin Williams, and as word of his suicide spread, the illusion of the comic man gave way to the reality of the struggles of the person beneath the mask and the character. He cut to our core and presented us an amazing opportunity to look at those places within us, our loved ones, and our communities that need attention and need healing. My heart is broken open, as I know are the hearts of many others I know and those I have yet to meet.

My ... Continue reading [...]

The Gift of Gratitude & LOVE

However you choose to view your experiences, in all things give gratitude and LOVE.

Our perspective shapes our reality. When we move from labeling and viewing things as good or bad and just accept our experiences as part of our life lessons on our journey, we free ourselves from the emotional attachments that come from either view. In this liberation, we allow ourselves to accept the peace that comes with allowing what is simply to be what it is.

Gratitude is a powerful tool to assist us ... Continue reading [...]

Loving Ourselves

Are you nice to yourself? Do you compliment yourself? Encourage yourself? LOVE yourself? If not you, then who? It is easy to get caught up in the trap of looking for LOVE and validation outside of ourselves, the trap of seeking others approval, the trap of looking for someone to tell us what to do or what direction to take. We are here to remember our LOVE and our divine essence and empower ourselves. It is time to wake up and embrace ourselves as we are, accepting our perceived imperfections and ...

Letting LOVE In

In my last post, I wrote of opening our hearts and choosing LOVE.  Sometimes, feeling LOVE just happens and it is easy.  Other times, we have to make a conscious decision to LOVE someone or something.  Choosing LOVE is equivalent to allowing flow in our lives.  When we are upset or feeling anything but LOVE in a situation or toward a person, we have typically been triggered by something and we are reacting from that stuck space within where we hold a stored memory or trauma and shutting down.  ...
