Living Life as Art

We are really all at our best when we become the vehicles of enlightened expression. When we identify primarily with our soul essence, not our human forms.  When we are guided by love, not the personality.

Why I am Choosing Interdependence  

In seeking out a better understanding of what healthy love can be, I learned to reframe my righteous expectations of self-reliance and independence. I researched, studied and ultimately found that in a healthy relationship there is inter-dependence.  Inter-dependence is this sweet spot where we mutually give and take.  Where we do depend on each other, not to be whole, but to be two strong wholes joining to become a stronger team, together.  There is inter-reliance for the good of the ‘we.’

Foundational Statements: The Soul of Your Business

How can you proceed to grow a business without knowing its purpose? How can you make operational decisions without calling out your guiding principles? I teach foundational statements in my business classes on the first night.

Part 2: Why Do Most Relationships Fail?

Disagreements are easy to focus on. The drama, the wanting to be right, the ‘proving I’m better by proving the other person is wrong’ – this is what most people in relationship unconsciously do. Unfortunately, this is what is also portrayed in the media, movies and reality shows. People focus on contrast and what is wrong, instead of what is right and common. In happy relationships, agreements rule. Agreements become the goal (even if you eventually agree to agree). With agreements there is peace.

Part 1: Why do relationships fail?

Growing Together: To grow together takes a commitment and communication. Have you sat down with your Beloved and acknowledged the true purpose for your union? Most marriage experts will tell you (I’ll tell you) it is to learn, to grow, to become a better person. Yes – your significant other is the key to personal growth, which means they will naturally trigger your past, your unconscious beliefs and fears, and your family patterns that you want to hide in the closet.

Discipline by Discipleship

When we feel love, commit to love and recognize that we deserve love, life’s choices are based on love. In that state we naturally ask ourselves, ‘What would love do?’ or ‘How can I love myself or another right now?’

Chasing Mountains

Last night my cup of tea gave me a special message. The tag on the bag stated, ‘Allow things to come to you.’ This fundamental shift from going after things – achievement and striving – to simply letting life show up and find me is one of my greatest lessons to learn.

Stumbling My Way to Enlightenment

No matter what I’m going through, I remind myself that I am dissolving my false sense of self (ego) and learning compassion. Then I pray to learn more. I dive deeper and become more self aware through this walk of humanness. I call this stumbling my way to enlightenment.

How to Play Bigger

To be humble is to know that something greater than us is playing through us! It is the ability to be more of a conduit than a generator. When we ask for Divine inspiration to move through us, magic and creativity start to happen in BIG ways!

The Courage to Feel is the Choice to Heal

If we meet our feelings with a loving presence of acceptance, they have the space to talk to us. Sometimes feelings can tell us the secrets of our deepest knowing – the fears, the warnings, the insights and the hard truths that we must hear in order to grow, make better choices and live a more authentic life. Listen!

Awaken and Express Your Greatness

Within each of us is a unique greatness. We are expressions of love in human form. These expressions are just waiting to awaken and to be shared!

I believe it could be a world with more wonder, contribution, happiness and belonging.

The Energy It Takes Not to Be Me

An authentic, courageous life is a self-inspired life. Being me is the easiest thing to be if I let myself be. And guess what – “Being Yourself is Being the Brilliant and Brave Person that You Are!” That means no censuring, no shoulds, or pleasing others at the detriment of yourself. It means trusting yourself and pursuing your heart’s desire.

What Does Success Look and Feel Like?

When success is a verb (process,) success becomes the journey and the how we act along the way. According to the dictionary, “any English noun can be verbed, but some are more resistant than others.” Have you ever heard someone say, “Congratulations, you are really successing.” Probably not! If success was seen more as a verb, the goals in mind hold value and allure, but the process of reaching them and who we become along the way would be valued above the achievement.

Transforming and falling in love

I’ve been busy transforming my life and falling in love. What have I learned in the process of so much change? True happiness is found in accepting all of life, the challenges, discomfort and stretching. With transformation comes both contraction and expansion. Fear and hope. With transformation comes death of the old as well as new life.
