My heart is full this week trying to help people get unstuck So many of my daily conversations with people focus and spin around all the uncertainty in the world
Uncertainty that riddles our lives with bullets of fear, stress and overwhelm
Which are paralyzing rather than motivating us into take action
When there is a lack of clarity or focus on what to do, we end up doing nothing - get stuck.
Which is why fear is such a strong emotion
At times, it protects us from immediate and real danger because it motivates us to leap into action and move quickly
Versus fear of the future or the threat of something that might go wrong which can turn our minds inside out and paralyze us
Starts us spinning on the hamster wheel, that is hard to stop
Fear over time turns into anxious feelings that interrupt our sleep, impact our diet and digestion, and our ability to complete the simplest of tasks
Which continues the cycle wreaking havoc on our emotional, intellectual and physical...
I will be honest. It took me a while to fall in love because it was so, so far out of my comfort zone. Mostly it was my ego zone and what people would think of me. How they would judge me. Then I realized this was a lesson on how I judge myself. Needing the approval of others to feel my worth.
I made a decision to be a network marketer initially for business reasons. I believed in the company and the value and importance of getting these products to the world, but was looking for something that fit into my life so I could keep my family first. I was in my 50’s and so beyond having a boss or any schedule put upon me. I wanted to be the boss of me!
Thank goodness my why was bigger than my fear. As a result my life and our family’s life is better in a million ways.
Let me share just a few….
Being an entrepreneur with all of the potential and none of the risk.
I could have been in jail, but I’m not...
That’s what people told me. Every time someone heard I was in network marketing, their immediate reaction was, “Why would you do that? It’s illegal.”
When I asked them, including my own Dad, why they didn’t like it, they said, “Because it’s a pyramid scheme”.
Hmmmmm.... What do you mean by a pyramid scheme?
“You know when only the person at the top makes all the money and you bring people in under you who don’t make as much money as you do.”
Gosh, I scratched my head, That’s kind of what happened to me in the corporate world.
I could never make as much as the people at the top when I worked for a bank, or a publishing company or even in sales when I was the top producer. In fact the reason I left corporate was because I loved creating value by building revenues which were a measure of my success. And when they told me they couldn’t move me any...
My heart is full with the need to ground and connect with our spiritual core and power as it feels like we are drifting at sea. Lost and alone disconnected and drowning. Which is why creating and committing to a spiritual practice becomes even more essential. No matter who you pray to or receive grace and guidance from, cultivating a deeper trust with a divine and abundant spirit where everyone can prosper is essential for the sustainability of our species and our planet.
For me the glue that holds everything together is my spiritual life. It grounds me and connects me to this beautiful planet that sustains us and gives us life, it reminds me of our connection to the universe as we spin through time and space on this journey of a lifetime…. I am in awe of the conscious intelligence that runs through it all.
Every day I commit time to connect to and be present in divine consciousness and spirit. The unseen power of healing our...
Are you like me?
Do you start your day with 100 things on your to do list?
Or do you spend your day running around and don’t take time when a new to do pops up, to write it down and you forget. Then spend the rest of the day beating yourself because you missed it. This is the emotional roller coaster that we often live on.
Which is why I want you to meet Grace. She is my Tesla and great partner in life and teacher. Today she's going to teach with me as I constantly learn from her. Plus, Grace is my favorite word. It's how I hope to show up in the day.
Every day when I catch myself spinning around like a crazy person, living in my head with all the things I want to get done that are impossible for any mere mortal to complete, I think of Grace. The moment I hop into my car, she’s ready with one simple image...a computer screen that runs every move we make. It opens first to a GPS planner.
Every move we make, we first...
This one quote changes my life every day because it reminds me to own how I meet the day
Every second we make a choice how we react to life. Rarely are we consciously choosing or taking ownership of our actions. We are whipped around by our thoughts and emotions which causes us to react based on preconceived notions. We get stuck spinning around the same story of blame, being the victim, or the “ I’m not enoughs”. Which causes us to live in Groundhog Day, repeating the same behaviors over and over again. Simply because we are watching the same movie we’ve projected on the movie screen of our life.
It’s time for a new reel in the projector of your thoughts. Remember, you own the movie theater. You can pay the price of screening a movie every day that makes you happy, peaceful, gracefilled, kind and loving or watch Psycho whipping you around in fear, overwhelm, sadness, anxiety, and anger.
Which is why the mantra I learned from my...
Do you know we all have an emotional guidance system. Our emotions are powerful teachers and our innate guides. They can be our best friend or our worst enemy. You decide.
Emotions are energy in motion. They are our call into action that can take our life sideways, protect us from danger or keep us trapped in old patterns and behaviors. They can be negative or positive. Feelings in our gut can protect and connect us to our intuition that leads us on this path of life.
You have the power to harness them by seeing emotions as a call to tune in, listen and learn.
Becoming conscious of your emotional life is an important step in the journey to creating a life with more joy, love, peace and passion.
These simple steps have helped me create a practice to master my emotions and grace in life. Imagine what your life would be like if you were 10% happier. Would it be worth it.
Which is why it is so important to be conscious of our emotional life. It can be our worst enemy or our best friend.
What do you believe about emotions? Do you ever stop and wonder where they come from, why they are there, what they teach you and most importantly, how they control your life.
Is your life an emotional roller coaster or a merry go round? Are you constantly up and down on the roller coaster of overwhelm, fear, anger, jealousy, loneliness and sadness. If you could, would you choose the merry go round and a life with more joy, love, happiness and peace. I used to live life on the roller coaster because I thought it was so thrilling. But over time it wore me out. The highs were high and the lows were oh so low. That is when I made the decision to create new habits and my life changed because I changed.
Becoming your own life architect means that you are becoming the master of you, which includes your emotional...
Seeing the beauty in life begins with the right mindset. A mindset of gratitude. Creating a mindset of gratitude happens daily and requires practice.
Our monkey mind can make us crazy and take us down rabbit holes that destroy our joy our love and our laughter. I have a practice every single day that I commit to because it is essential for my life to work it brings me love, for myself. First so that I can bring it into the world. It reminds me of who I am and what I’m here to do in the world and how I can serve my highest good.
It gives me the time to listen and receive by connecting to my own internal voice and vision.
My daily practice is focused on how I nourish my mind, spirit, and body. My commitment creates the consistency that turns these habits into a life I love. If you’re ready to create a different future and a life that brings more joy passion vision and purpose, join me and grab my guide and let’s do it together.
When I look at my mind I know...
This quote inspires me. “The more grateful I am, the more beauty I see” by Mary Davis.
It is the perfect theme not only for my week but for every single moment in every single day. Wouldn’t your life be a little bit brighter if you looked for the beauty in everything instead of the flaws.
If you are like me, I can hear or see something, like the news, that can take me down a rabbit hole and I’m lost in the darkness of fear and overwhelm. There are too many opportunities in the world today to feel like we will never be ok. Life as we know it is over and our future looks like an empty canvas. We can dream and believe in our power to create a better, kinder, more loving world or succumb to the agony of defeat.
I choose every day to be more grateful. Choose to see the beauty in the miracles of life unfolding before my eyes. Commit to taking time to capture the moments in life that bring me into my heart and joy.
