Letting Go

  Most upset is derived from our unwillingness to accept or release something.  Like holding water, the tighter we grasp the less we have.  Often the intense energy we expend clinging to something is the single greatest obstacle to our good.  We greatly improve...

Coming Home

Coming Home

The more criticism of self, the lower one's level of happiness and confidence. Create space between that voice in your head and your consciousness. Begin coming home. On the surface, it appears we're dealing thought alone. Yet, the source of these toxic thoughts bears...

Are you spinning yarns?

Are you spinning yarns?

  Unbeknownst to most of us, we are masterful storytellers.  The instant someone does or doesn't do something, the storyteller in our mind goes to work crafting the story behind the situation. For example: Man meets a woman and asks if he can call her to arrange...

Are You Prepared?

Are You Prepared?

Stop Waiting for Life to Change

You Can Handle Anything Now

You Can Handle Anything Now

Detoxing the Mind Part Two

How to Detox Your Mind (Part 1)

Mental toxins, the weight of the past and fears not tied to facts can sabotage every attempt at success and happiness. Because they "live" inside of us, we believe they are us. In truth, they are the beliefs, negative thoughts and conclusions we've drawn from people...

LOVE: The Verb

LOVE: The Verb

  We are co-creators of our lives, whatever we send out returns, sooner or later, and what we focus on expands. If we move through the world feeling as though we are part of a family, the human family, and we give love to that family, when possible and not in...

THIS is what’s stopping you from being who you want to be

THIS is what’s stopping you from being who you want to be

  I had lunch with a lovely friend today.  She's a wealth of love, talent and ability.  For many years she's shied away from her innate gifts because of thoughts like, "Who would listen to me?" and "Am I good enough to do this?"  In an effort to legitimize...

Dancing on the Precipice of Everything

101 Game Changing Keys to Life

  Don't take advice from people you wouldn't want to end up like. If they'll do it to someone else, they'll do it to you. Tell the truth, most if not, all darkness comes to light anyway. You do not have the power, and shouldn't try, to change anyone. No one else...

A Good Lover

A Good Lover

  Have you ever lost someone you love before you'd told them what they meant to you?   If you have, my heart is with you, it's an unparalleled pain.  You can still tell them.  You won't receive the same response, but it still matters. If you think you'll never heal,...

Relatives, Relationships & Reality

  Most of us were taught that labels like "mother," "friend," "brother," etc. are something more than words used to describe how one knows another.  As a society, we attach tremendous meaning to labels and consequently suffer intense upset when people fail to live up...

Magic Words

Magic Words

I'm sorry. Whether business or personal, all relationships encounter conflict sooner or later. In these moments, we learn and show others who we are. It isn't always easy to admit we're wrong. At a minimum, it’s uncomfortable. Don’t let that get in the way of...

What Forgiveness is Not
