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" … [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...]


Your life will change if you change this.

I woke up this morning thinking about having to have a business conversation that I don’t really want to have (but know that it is in my best interests to have). Like most people, I am the least adept at life mastery in the wee hours (keep this in mind the next time it’s 4:00 am and you’re sensing imminent doom–reach for the light within, it’s also strongest then). As I was grumbling about what I wish I didn't have to deal with, I remembered that by changing the way I characterized the situatio … [Read More...]

interior design

Become the designer of your interior

One of the greatest obstacles to living one's best life is a cluttered mind — a mind filled with thoughts, emotions, memories and audio clips from other people. Taken individually, no single bit of clutter matters, but collectively they create a mountain, separating us from the free, expansive thinking that creates peace, progress and innovation. If we could transform the mind environment into a physical space, we would see that many of us are mental hoarders and pack rats living in cramped s … [Read More...]

believe in yourself

Finding Belief in Yourself

Believing in yourself is a major distinguishing characteristic between future success and falling short. When you believe in yourself you’ll persevere and bank and bet on yourself. You’ll have the support of the ONE person who has the power to change everything in your life: YOU. Many people say they don’t know how or why they should believe in themselves. Seek evidence to support believing in yourself and you’ll find it. Here are some examples of great reasons to believe in you: I believe in … [Read More...]
