Self-Pity verses Self-Compassion

When life hurts and things aren’t going our way, it is easy to feel alone, sad, and believe we are not supported by the Universe. In other words, it’s compelling to fall into a state of self-pity. One of the biggest problems with self-pity, is it keeps us stuck and in pain, and pretty much […]

Living a Surrendered Life

Are you the ultimate authority in your life? Do you want to be? I believe the majority of people are doing their very best to control their lives. It has been said control is the master addition – control is also an illusion. So, another important question to consider is: Do you trust the Universe? […]

The Importance of Boundaries

Do you really know where you end and begin? Do you often feel like you are spread too thin? And are other people more important to you than you?  This was certainly the case for me. Years ago I had to admit I had boundaries issues after becoming aware of a glaring, consistent pattern that […]

Freedom Through Forgiveness

The most precious commodity any of us have as human beings is our energy; our life force. Do you want to deplete your precious life force throwing imaginary poisoned darts at someone, or would you like use that energy to create a life of beauty, miracles and great love?     Did you know humans are […]

So, are you enjoying your unique expression? Are you celebrating your amazingness?  I don’t think most people are, and I think that is why most people […]

Ah yes, here we are, close to one of my most favorite holidays, Valentine’s Day! And with an estimated 62% of our US population celebrating it, this make Valentine’s Day one of our countries most popular holidays.   The history goes back quite far but was first associated with romantic love in the High Middle Ages. In 18th-century England, […]

Inviting Goodness and Grace Through Gratitude

Gratitude is something that never goes out of season and can be seen as spiritual practice that softens our energy, heals our mind, opens our heart, and aligns us more directly with our soul.  With that being said, as the holidays approach, I believe it is a powerful time to start, or uplevel, our practice […]

Making Friends with Your Inner Saboteur

Several years ago, I thought to myself: “Why is life SO HARD?” I know I am intelligent, fairly attractive, and I am pretty nice…. so why can’t I attract a relationship with a good guy? why can’t I keep these last 10 pounds off? Why can’t I make more money?   As I thought about this, […]
