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.
It’s time to meet your Superheroes
You don’t actually think about the blood flowing through your veins, nerve impulses, breathing, or digesting the breakfast you had this morning. If you workout in the morning, you don’t have to think about your muscles repairing themselves or bones becoming stronger. All of this just happens.
Take the skin for example. Let’s say you cut your finger – the wound healing process that goes on behind the scenes is an incredibly organized process. It starts with the immune system, removing all that damaged tissue. Then, the skin cells have to grow and divide in order to replace the damaged and missing tissue. Ultimately your finger becomes as good as new. It’s amazing because it all happens without you having to think about it.
This all happens because of the highly coordinated cellular intelligence your cells possess. But where does this...
My heart is full with the experience of coming through the other side of the virus.
This has been a journey I believe will move through each of us one way or another. Whether personally or through someone we love. It truly only becomes real when it becomes your own experience as suddenly the world turns inside out because nothing is within your control nor will anything ever be the same.
I am a different person as are each and every person I took this journey with and met as a result. The video I made sharing my story connected me with so many other real life stories around the globe and I was able to see the ripple effect of new choices being made as a result.
The most important thing I learned is you can’t wait until you are sick to focus on your health. It is important every single day to build a fortress around your body before something happens. Be proactive and strengthen your defenses before they are attacked. It...
There are many things I learned from Sebastian but these five lessons stand out from all the other...
Love yourself and the World
His love was omnipresent. It began with his love of self and his passion for living. Not for things he could acquire and accomplish, but for the love of life and living itself….
The simple fact is, our capacity to love is our most precious gift of all.
To love another person deeply is where true purpose lives. We are learning now more than ever that we can love our job, our house, our things, our places, but when they are taken away, we survive. Maybe with stress, anxiety and worry of what is next, but we still have next.
To lose someone we love, never leaves us because their presence can’t be replaced. Hopefully they will teach us that loving another, while it is the greatest risk of all, is still worthy because loving is our true compass for a life well lived. Nothing is permanent. But...
My heart is filled with the memory of Sebastian, whose life ended one year ago at the tender age of 24. Our family was blessed when he moved from South Africa, ahead of his family, to live with us so he could complete his senior year of high school. He and our son Pablo were friends that soon became brothers and our family expanded by his huge presence and love. We were so lucky to have this gift of time.
There are many things I learned from Sebastian but these five lessons stand out from all the rest on how to truly live a life of value.
Mostly he taught me these things
Sebastian’s steps to life were not lived in the past or future
Not defined by what he had done or what might happen
Just curious, Do you consider yourself an opportunist or an intuitive?
What does it mean to be an opportunist?
It means that you're actually looking for opportunities for your life to be better. Whether it is to capture timing, momentum or make money, whatever it is that is meaningful to you.
Are you looking for opportunities or are you like me, an intuitive.
I have always followed my intuition. I have a really good gut, and I trust it. Here's a short story of what I learned about myself….
I was born in Idaho and for a while I moved to the foothills of Lake Tahoe and bought myself a horse.
I had a farm and a ranch and big views outside and it was a gorgeous spot. But I realized I was not a cowgirl at heart and I moved back to San Francisco I lived in the city and then I moved to New York. I love New York. I love Manhattan. I am a city girl.
I went to work and became a corporate girl too... I built a strong relationship with the company that I was working...
Are you an opportunist or intuitive?
What guides your life?
Do you believe you are divinely guided
I pray for guidance daily
On occasion, it is a prayer for help finding a way through a problem
I have found when I am clear on my request, the answer arrives
Not usually in the package I expected
But it always takes me places I never could have imagined
Has blessed my life with incredible opportunities to truly live
Which is why I ask this question
The world today is overwhelming us with the lack of possibility
The fear of the unknown and where we fit into it
Finding the way through fear to solutions is so essential
Which is why ten years ago when the economy tanked in 2008, I became an opportunist.
Searching for ways to help survive financially while staying home with our children.
But I prayed that I would find a way to create an opportunity that would live in my life.
I had no idea it would change my life in so many...
Mastering your life begins with mastering your morning, because how you start your day is how it ends. In order to change your life you will need to change your behaviors beginning with creating the time to be more conscious of the choices you are currently making,
Finding what works for you and what doesn’t.
Mastering your morning is about creating a practice. A commitment every day to specific behaviors designed to build Mastery in your life. Change what you are currently doing that’s not working and create new behaviors you desire.
It is also important to change our thoughts and old patterns of reacting. Change is hard and overwhelming at times. Mostly because we don’t know what to do or where to begin. But when we break it down into simple steps, we have a road map to lead us to the life we want to live.
Change is hard at first, somewhat messy in the middle, but oh so worth it in the end! You don’t have to see the top of the...
