Living life based on predictions?

I don't believe in living life based on predictions; I know that at every moment we possess the power to influence and change the trajectory of our health, finances, relationships and careers, essentially our entire lives. But I am fascinated by the wisdom found in the many forms of energy interpretation. Recently, I've seen the Five of Cups tarot card (pictured above) several times. It showed up on a book cover, a flyer and finally in an email from a friend. I've learned to notice when life … [Read More...]


What is most important: courage, confidence, or determination?

How many times have you wanted to do something new, or take a risk, and instead of stepping up and attempting to do it, you stepped back and wished that you were more confident? Is there something in your life that you really want, but you’re waiting to have the confidence to go for it? Do you believe that once you’re confident, you’ll get started? Confidence comes as the result of stepping out and taking risks, not waiting for it. When you actually do what you’re aching to do, you’ll become mor … [Read More...]


8 Steps to Connect with Your Intuition and Clean Your Inner House

You are intuitive, whether you realize it or not. There's a higher knowing within you. It's always there and available to support you. It may communicate or express itself as a feeling, a vision, a voice, or a simple knowing.The challenge for most people is in recognizing their intuition and distinguishing between it, the ego, emotions, and their thinking mind. Intuitive knowings aren't like other types of thoughts or feelings. They are quiet, simple, arise from an inner state of detachment, and … [Read More...]


How to handle life after loss

We all endure losses, big and small, some more intense than others, and some of us experience more than others, but we all go through it sooner or later. For me the experience of loss and grief is what I would imagine being dropped out of a plane into the middle of a seemingly endless stormy sea, at midnight, with only a very flimsy flotation device would feel like. At first it’s shocking and we grapple with trying to understand how it’s even possible that this happened. We think, there must be … [Read More...]


Get off of this life-destroying ride

Most of us move through life carrying a dossier of beliefs taken from the past and, to greater and lesser degrees, bearing no truth.  The falsity of the beliefs is irrelevant because what we call true is true for us. Like a virus, erroneous beliefs spread to the minds of others where they multiply, magnify and circulate.  In time, entire populations carry similar thoughts and because "everyone knows it's true", it is.  This cycle whirs like an everlasting merry-go-round and it feels "normal" to r … [Read More...]


Your Life’s Purpose

"What is my purpose?" "Why am I here?" Having grappled with these questions myself and helped many people discover their unique answers too, I know how fundamental this question is to living fulfilling, happy, and genuinely successful lives. The purpose of your life is to express your unique strengths, gifts, talents, and creativity, in a manner that serves others, sustains, and fulfills you. Ideally, your life's purpose intersects with, and may even be, your career (homemakers too). That's … [Read More...]

The Law of Attraction

Understanding the the Law of Attraction

I can't sit by and watch another person judge and beat themselves up for not being positive or high-vibration enough to avoid attracting unwanted events. It's nonsense and it drives me nuts."After 5 years of practicing the law of attraction, I've lost everything (my job, my dog, my dad, my health). I'm angry and sick with sadness. What did I do wrong and why doesn't it work for me?"--Sarah, Kansas CityLIFE HAPPENS. It just does. Challenges, trials, losses, and difficulties are a part … [Read More...]

Release regrets

Have regrets? Here’s how to release them.

Regret is the feeling we experience when we look at a past event that didn’t turn out the way we wanted and wish we had made different choices or we look at our life and wish we had pursued a different (career, romantic, personal, etc.) path. One is specific to a situation and the other is more broad, both can cause us real and present agony. My own and greatest experience of regret comes from not listening to my intuition when a medical professional dismissed my former husband’s extraordinary h … [Read More...]


Accepting Whatever Happens

Last week, my computer crashed taking a year’s worth of email and documents with it. The back up is corrupted too (if I owe you a response, please let me know). Also last week, a friend who owns property in another state was awakened at 3 am by a phone call informing her that her place was on fire. This week, another friend discovered that his wife has a boyfriend. Each event felt emotionally troubling and caused quite a bit of logistical hassles too. I can only speak for myself, but it’s lik … [Read More...]
