Does Your Heart Feel Empty?

Somehow when I thought about filling the heart to overflowing, I remembered an old song and nursery rhyme from childhood, “Nobody loves me, everybody hates me, think I’ll go eat worms . . .” Even though in one particular moment you may feel abandoned and that no one loves or cares about you, that simply isn’t true. Each one of you has more people than you can count who care about you and want the best for you. It’s also good to remember that a part of you, specifically your soul or inner … [Read more...]

Is Your Mind Your Best Friend or Your Worst Enemy?

Every human has the most amazing and super powerful, extraordinary supercomputer called the subconscious mind. Think about this. Your subconscious mind controls all your emotions, involuntary body functions like your heartbeat, holds your beliefs, habits and patterns, holds all your memories, dreams, body language, your energy and what motivates you and basically determines who you are.   Talk about powerful. It’s capacities are beyond any technology man can … [Read more...]

Do You Know What Your Body Really Wants?

No, I’m not referring to how much food or what foods you eat? What does your body really need? Now that you’ve made a commitment and put yourself on your own calendar so you can fill yourself up to overflowing on a daily basis, let’s start with your body. Do you ask your body each day, what it needs? I don’t know about you, but this was not something I did unless I had a cold or the flu. Sure, then I’d listen, but the rest of the time, not so much. Yet, loving ourselves and self … [Read more...]

Are You On Your Calendar?

Now that you’ve hopefully given yourself permission to do more self care and fill yourself up, you’re ready for the next step. Actually doing it. We can have all the best intentions to do something, however, if we don’t take our commitment to ourselves seriously, the Universe won’t either. That means that all sorts of things can come up, like an unexpected dental appointment, birthday party with gift needed asap, a last minute meeting called, whatever, and your best intentions go by the … [Read more...]

How to Give Yourself Permission for Self Love

In the last post we talked about filling ourselves up to overflowing and giving to others from our overflow. If we’ve been continually giving and over-giving to others and putting others’ needs before our own, there is often a first step needed. It’s actually a mindset change, because we’ve been taught since we were little children to ask authority figures for permission for basically everything. Yet, when it comes to self care and filling ourselves up, we’re the ones who need to give … [Read more...]

How to Feel Lighthearted, Joyful and Energized Each Day

Are you feeling depleted or running on empty? Do you remember how you were taught to share and give to others when you were a little child? I do and yes, it is wonderful to give and share with others for it makes us feel good, valued and needed. However, there’s a missing piece, an x factor, that we were not taught. This means the equation is out of balance unless you also give to yourself.   During a yoga meditation intensive years ago, I heard from deep inside of … [Read more...]

Overwhelmed by Mother Nature?

Wow, Mother Nature has certainly been busy lately with all the extreme weather we’ve had around the globe - two powerful hurricanes, huge earthquake, raging wildfires, floods, record breaking temperatures. As caring, sensitive loving women, we often find ourselves overwhelmed by everything that is happening around us especially when we have no control over it. However, what we do have control over is our response to the overwhelm and instead of focusing on all the ‘bad’ things that are … [Read more...]

How Old Is Your Soul?

Do you know what baseball cards, comic books, Star Wars memorabilia, land, stamps, books, stocks, gold and silver have in common?   Yes, they’re all collectibles and increase in value as they age.   Yet it’s often considered impolite to ask anyone in their middle age, how old they are. In fact, you may be taking your life in your hands.   Kids have the opposite response to the same question. A child under 10 answers specifically, 4 and a half or 7 and three-quarters. Kids can’t wait to be … [Read more...]

How Young Would You Like to Feel?

Do you ever wake up feeling old, tired, even decrepit after you: * worked out super hard the day before? * gardened all day? * over-indulged in food or beverages that you can’t handle like you did in your 20's? * feel more aches, pains and stiffness in your joints/body maybe from an old accident or injury? * look in a mirror and notice another gray hair, wrinkles or gravity doing its thing on your hips, thighs and breasts? How do you feel about getting older? Maybe you don’t mind being … [Read more...]

What’s Really Precious to You?

Who or what do you consider precious, important, essential and valuable in your life that you preserve time, energy and space for? Relationships with your spouse, family, and friends? Your health and body? Money? Spiritual connection with the Divine? Time for yourself to connect, be, reflect, process? Perhaps one of these areas is important to you yet you haven’t been nurturing it lately and you’d like to. In this week’s vlog, I encourage you to schedule as little as a few … [Read more...]
