Becoming Empty to Receive

These were the words that profoundly struck me in my yoga class this past weekend. It connected things for me on so many levels. Imagine wading out into a swift river carrying a vessel to hold water. If it is already mostly full of rocks and debris you collected on the shore, you won’t have […]

I am a Life Coach

3 years ago I found myself at an event. I attended alone, and knew absolutely no one there. During the opening reception, a gorgeous and charismatic woman immediately came up to me and started asking about my life. She had such a magnetic energy about her and the magical ability to focus on you and […]

How to Be Yourself

“You have never been taught to become you. You have been taught to become “somebody.”… We have been taught wrongly for all these years. We have never been taught to be peaceful or how to achieve peace of mind when everything is upside down… The time has come. You have to be you—a beautiful, bountiful, […]

Real Balance

I’ve lived with this odd mantra for much of my life where I want to prove how ‘low maintenance” i can be to other people. I never want to inconvenience others. I need to do everything on my own. All the time. Unfortunately, this line of thinking has caused my downfall over and over again—a […]

For years I have been doing Julia Cameron’s “Morning Pages” ritual, that consists of journaling stream of conscious thought for ten minutes. It’s a great way to get junk out of our subconscious so […]

How to discern your intuition

I had a great mentoring session with my spiritual mentor last night. She taught me that when I intentionally seek guidance from my intuition, that the first thought is always right. the second thought it always doubt, and the third thought it always fear. Learning to trust that first thought is so important. We can […]

Get out of the Box

I have needed this quote several times in the last week. It beautifully illustrates that to live a peaceful and happy life, we need to be clear on principles, but have charity for ourselves and others on how those principles are practiced. Sometimes in our pursuit of living a principle we close ourselves into a […]

You are Enough

This crazy world of comparison can often make it hard to believe that who we are is already amazing. As I have studied the topic of identity this year, one of my most surprising discoveries for me has been in the realization that what we ‘do’ and what we ‘have’ is not our true identity. […]
