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...]

Do You Tap Into Drama or Peace?

When something horrible happens in the world or when gossip spreads like wildfire at the office, do you find yourself getting sucked into the drama around you or can you connect to the peace and calm inside? It can be quite challenging to stay calm when the media, friends, co-workers, social media - almost everyone you know and everywhere you turn all you see and hear is people talking about what’s going on, how terrible it is, what’s going to happen, etc. Finding our own inner peace can … [Read more...]

Want More Ease and Flow in Your Life?

How many times have you had a day that you knew from the get-go would be a killer? You know the ones jam-packed with meetings back-to-back, little time for a restroom break and well... forget about lunch. Then, there’s making sure the repairman can get into your house to fix your washer, need to pick up the dry-cleaning because you have to have your favorite suit for a presentation the next day . . .  and on and on and on . . . In this week’s vlog, nature reminded me of how I not only … [Read more...]

How Do You Climb Out of a Light Worker’s Deep Dark Hole of Despair?

Okay, I know this isn’t a fun topic for sensitive people and light workers to read about, though I promise there is Light at the End of the Tunnel! Has it ever seemed like the Universe is working against you? Let’s say one or more of the following happened to you: - your long term marriage or relationship ended suddenly; - your landlord tells you they’re selling your building and you have to move out of your apartment immediately; - your job, which had been the bright spot in your life, … [Read more...]

Synchronicity or a Sign? How Do You Know the Divine Are There?

As humans, we can often feel alone, unsure, lost, disconnected, unsupported and abandoned by family, friends, ourselves and even the Divine. Other humans, including those closest to us, can let us down. However, the Divine never do, though from our limited perspective it might seem so. Yet, how do we know the Divine are there for us? They give us signs all the time. When things happen the way we want, we say it’s a coincidence, serendipity or synchronicity instead of understanding that … [Read more...]

What to Do with Mistakes?

Let me ask you a question. Which of these do you give more attention: a) The compliments you receive for the kind, caring, sweet, generous, loving things you do? b) The big or small mistakes you make? If you’re like most people, myself included, you tend to focus on the mistakes you make while compliments barely create a blip on your radar.  A professor of social psychology at Florida State University, Roy F. Baumeister, captured this idea in the title of a journal article he … [Read more...]
