William James, one of the founders of the field of psychology and often called the grandfather of Positive Psychology observes that we are continually changing and becoming something we never were before.
Everything we go through; the good, the bad and the ugly; changes us in some way. We learn new information about ourselves; about how we process events in our lives and we learn about how we interact with others. We learn what makes us tick and we see the meaning we give to everything that happens in our life. We learn what makes our heart happy, our soul sing and what makes us come alive. We learn about our place in our own lives and about our place in the world.
Every day we have an opportunity to understand ourselves more and shape ourselves into the people we are meant to be. Take advantage of each day and every new experience. See everything as a stepping stone that will usher you into something you have never been before.
Affirmation: I am continually becoming more of who I am meant to be.

I love this prose poem “Desiderata” by Max Erhmann. He started it in 1921 and it’s incredible to think that even though it was written 100 years ago it still applies today. You are indeed a child of the Universe, you have the right to be here so be gentle with yourself. If you’ve never had a chance to read it check it out:
“Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.”
Affirmation: I am gentle with myself for I am a child of the Universe.

Tomorrow I am going to Disney World with my son, daughter-in-law and 3 of my grandchildren and I am so excited! The rides are absolutely incredible but the best thing about Disney World is the Magic. For me the Magic is in the faces of the children and how it wakes up the child in me.
The first time I was at Disney I was a mom with 4 kids ages 11-18. My 18 year old daughter and I were literally holding hands and skipping down Main St waving to Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs. Snow White was the first movie I ever saw in a movie theater so many years ago. Disney World brought me back to the innocence, joy and magic of childhood.
There is a child within each of us. A child that was filled with love and joy. A child that believed in the Magic of Life itself. Get in touch with that child. Do something that brings you back to that innocent, joyful time before the hardships of life buried it deep inside.
There are so many things that can help you remember: Color in a coloring book, swing on the swings, build a sand castle, play a board game or jump on a rebounder or trampoline. Last weekend I was rolling down the hill with my grandchildren. All these things can help you remember what it was like to be young and bring out that youthful exuberance that keep you young in body, mind and spirit.
Affirmation: I let the child within keep me young in body, mind and spirit.
Today marks the end of an era for many with the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II. There is a good chance we will never see another Queen in our lifetime. Her service, dedication and devotion will be remembered.
Her Majesty was a most beloved figure. Those that served her closely supported her and were devoted to her. They speak of her humility, her kindness, her work ethic, her humor, her generosity, her ability to put others before herself, her faith and her love of family.
There are many lessons we can take from her life and the monarchy itself. At the tender age of 21 she promised to give her life to her role and she did just that for 70 years with integrity and complete surrender.
Watching her funeral this morning I am deeply moved. At this profound moment in history I see the value of tradition, discipline and honoring those that devoted their lives to something greater than themselves. Queen Elizabeth II has been a symbol of integrity, tradition and continuity to not only the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth but to the world.
Though the monarchy may change and the pomp and circumstance may change today we take a moment to thank and honor a Queen, a mother, a grandmother and an incredibly noble woman; a woman who exemplified devotion, discipline, tradition and surrender throughout her extraordinary reign.
As she takes her final journey home let us take comfort in her words:
“Grief is the price we pay for love.”

Affirmation: I begin each day with the gifts of Love, Light, Faith, Purpose, Power & Grace.
Sometimes we imprison ourselves; we put ourselves in a self imposed jail with our limited thinking and beliefs about ourselves and the world. The mind can play tricks on you; it can lead you think that you are not enough or that there is not enough for everyone.
The good news is you can change your thinking. You are always experiencing life, learning and growing and you are always enough! It is an abundant Universe and there is always enough.
You hold the key to break free from any limiting thoughts and beliefs. You hold the key to change your thinking, to look at you and life in a new way.
Feed your mind positive thoughts and empowering information. See yourself as the Divine reflection of the Most High that is the truth of who you are. Unlock the chains that bind you and let the truth set you free.
Affirmation: I hold the key to set myself free and let my Spirit soar.

Begin your day the same way. Don’t let the darkness keep you down. Let your Spirit rise up, reach for the light and let your beautiful soul shine brightly for all the world to see.

Where does your attention go? Where do your thoughts consistently drift to? What do you focus on? Do you dwell on thoughts of good and plenty or do you focus on negativity and lack?
Whatever you focus on; wherever your attention goes your energy will follow. Your energy is the vibration you send out to the Universe, and that’s what the Universe will match and bring back to you.
Focus on the good in your life; no matter what is going on there is always good in the world so find it. Give thanks for the plenty you experience no matter how small. Every time you receive anything say “Thank you more please!” Give your attention to all the positivity in the world and in your life and more will come to you.
Affirmation: I give thanks for all the good in my life and watch it multiply.
I had a dream last night that we had a foster child who was a lefty and the teacher wouldn’t let him write with his left hand. She told him it was a right hand world and he had to conform and be normal.
I have two grandchildren that are lefties and I would be furious if a teacher wouldn’t let them write unless they wrote with their right hand.
I had a talk with the teacher and said why should he conform and be normal when he was made to stand out and be extraordinary.
What have you changed about yourself to fit in and be normal? What parts of you have you hidden from the world because they are different?
Don’t hide the things that make you unique. Hold them up to the light and let them shine. You weren’t made to be normal you were made to be extraordinary.
Affirmation: I am extraordinary!

I see you Peace! I see you while I sit on rocks listening to the gentle sound of waves lapping the shore as the fishing boats rest in the water quietly bobbing up and down. I see you in the beauty of nature, in the birds singing in the trees, in the flowers blooming, in the quiet river as it makes its way through the trees and in the rolling hills of the countryside. I see you Peace, I am you.
I see you Joy in the laughter of a child, in the look of love from family and friends, in the smile from a stranger, in the gifts that I give and receive, in the gathering of loved ones, in the magic of the sunrise and in each glorious sunset. I see you Joy, I am you!

There will always be storms in life. Some appear violent and disrupt your life. Some knock things out of the way to clear the path for you.
You may not want these storms and you may not see them coming but they will come. Sometimes they come fast and furious and sometimes they are slow and steady.
The best thing you can do is accept that storms will visit you at some point. Know that they will end and the sun will shine again. Know that your path is being made clear so that you can see the road ahead.
Trust that they are meant to take you higher and help you reach your full potential. What you seek you will find so look for the good in each storm. Pay attention to the new glimpses of clarity each one provides.

We are all on this journey we call life together. Imagine being alone, completely alone on this planet, not another living soul to experience life with. It would be so lonely and to many not worth living. We matter to each other and we need each other.
Though we have different lives, different views, different lifestyles, different beliefs and ways of being; we are all equal and worthy of respect. You don’t have to agree with everyone but respect is necessary for a society to grow and for all to to be heard and experience happiness.
It’s nice to surround yourself with like minded people but try to also listen to those you don’t agree with an open mind and open heart. You may not understand them, you may not know what has happened in their life or what they are going through now and it’s okay to disagree. They still deserve your respect.
When you have respect for others and actually listen to them you may be surprised at what you learn. You may be surprised to find yourself growing and even becoming a more understanding and better human being. We can take each other higher when we take the time to listen and respect each other.
Affirmation: I respect others even if I don’t agree with them.

Affirmation: I shine a Light on the Divinity that is within everyone I see.
This quote from Albert Einstein is an important message about failure. He’s saying it is inevitable, it’s part of the process of success. Failure can teach us and motivate us to try again and do better.
There may be disappointment initially but each failure can teach us something new and bring us closer to the success we wish to achieve. Don’t think of failure as defeat see it as an agent for growth.
People have been using failure as motivation for centuries. Entrepreneurs, scientists, and inventors all over the world will tell you it happens; it happens to us all and it’s okay.
You may have experienced some sort of failure yourself in the past. Often when you reach for something new; when you try something different and expand your comfort zone a degree of failure follows.
As you see failure in a new light you take away the disappointment and begin to see the good that comes from it. You begin to see it as part of the process, part of the learning curve and part of the journey on your way to success. It becomes a force for good in your life and a necessary step toward achieving your goals and living the life you dream of.
Affirmation: I know failure is just part of the process of success.
We all have our own journey this lifetime. Sometimes our journey connects with another for a moment and sometimes for a lifetime. Sometimes our paths are aligned and sometimes they fall out of alignment. Sometimes we feed each other’s soul and sometimes there is a lack of nourishment in the relationship.
When a relationship no longer elevates or nourishes you and only holds you back it may be time to move in a different direction. The relationship is complete or at least it may not require them playing a starring role in your life anymore. You can still love that person but better to love them from a distance.
Distance can give you both a new perspective. It gives you both space to explore your own identities and follow your own path. It allows you to redefine the relationship and shift to more realistic expectations.
Loving from a distance can lead to you appreciating the good in the person as they navigate their own journey and in the relationship you once had. It can also bring ease to your mind and peace to your heart. Loving from a distance allows you to nurture and love you as you grow into your potential.
Affirmation: Sometimes I love others from a distance.

Affirmation: I see with eyes of love.

Affirmation: I see the miracles of life all around me.

Affirmation: One shift in my awareness can change my life forever so I keep expanding my awareness.
Your body is made to move…every part of it. Move your legs, your arms, your hips, spine, head, feet, hands and even your organs. Find a body movement program that helps you move and strengthen every part of your body; a program you can enjoy and stay with throughout your life.
As important as movement is, stillness is just as important. Your being needs to be still; your body, your mind, your heart and your spirit need to reflect, regenerate and rejuvenate.
In the stillness you calm your nervous system, you can hear your own intuition and helps you develop a deeper connection with self. Stillness anchors you to the present, improves your sleep, develops listening skills, brings clarity and a sense of joy and peace to you. It improves your confidence and your overall health and well-being.
Begin a daily practice of spending time in quiet contemplation, reflection or meditation and in body movement. Your entire being and your world will reflect the many benefits.
Affirmation: I practice movement and stillness every day.

Take a look around you and notice the “every day” things that are in your world. the sun rising or setting, the clouds in the sky or the stars at night, a beautiful flower, a hummingbird etc. So many things in nature can fill us with a sense of awe and wonder.
Music & Art can have the same effect. Listen closely to some of your favorite songs or watch a video of one of your favorite performers. Art whether it be a beautiful painting, an amazing picture or reading a poem, book, article or great work of literature can often make you think and illicit a sense of awe.

Today is the 10th anniversary of my dad’s passing. I laid him to rest beside my mom, the love of his life, on my birthday. It was actually very fitting as I had married the love of my life on his last birthday. I miss both my mom and my dad so much but they come to me often.
I can still feel their love in the gentle breeze flowing through the trees, in the rain falling down around me, in the sand on the beach and in each rolling wave. I can see their love in the eyes of my children and my grandchildren and I even catch their love sometimes in the smile of a stranger. I can hear their love in the laughter of a child, in the sweet song of birds every morning and in the whisper of the still small voice in my heart.
Their love is always with me; watching over me, supporting me, guiding me and encouraging me as Love never dies! Love is always with you too!

Meditation is one of the greatest tools you can use to learn how to master your mind. Establish a meditation practice daily. It can relieve stress, quiet the mind, relax the body, focus attention, center you so you can make better decisions, raise your vibration so what you bring into your life has a higher vibration and put you in touch with the spiritual Reality of life. Many people find a deeper connection to Source, a deeper connection to themselves, to their inner knowing and a deeper connection to the world around them.
Meditation will help clear your mind and master your thoughts. As you meditate you let go of the chatter in your mind, or monkey mind as I call it, and you tap into the Creative Intelligence of the Universe. From that Source everything flows to you and through you. There is a depth of wisdom, love, strength, creativity and power within you that you may not even be aware you have. Meditation taps into all those things and helps you reach a fuller expression of who you are meant to be.
There are many ways to meditate. A great way to start your practice is to find a quiet place where you will undisturbed, close your eyes, breathe in deeply and let your body relax with each out breath. Imagine light flowing into you with each in breath. Continue to relax your body and let any tension or stress melt away with each out breath. Imagine the light coming from the Universe and filling your body as if you were a bottle. Let the light flow through the top of your head all the way down to your toes then visualize it filling you up from your toes to your feet, to your ankles, shins, knees, thighs, body, chest, imagine the light flowing down your arms into your elbows, hands, fingers, then back up your to shoulders, your neck, your face, see it filling you right up to the top of our head then see it shoot out your hair and cascade down all around you encircling you in a bubble of light. See yourself immersed and surrounded in this beautiful light. If your mind starts to wander that’s okay just go back to your breath and continue to fill yourself and surround yourself with light and relax with each breath. Hold this vision knowing this light is the truth of who you are. The truth is; you are Divine Love, Absolute Abundance, Pure Joy, Eternal Peace, and Creative Intelligence. You are perfect, whole and complete right here, right now!
Affirmation: I meditate every day and raise my vibration as I fill myself with Light.
Every year I look forward to the return of the hummingbirds to my yard. When I think of the journey they make from Central America or Mexico all the way to my yard just outside Boston I am filled with wonder.

The Law of Abundance
Have you ever thought you don’t have enough money? Many people have probably thought that at some point in their life. Most people think they can do more and be more if they have more money.
To experience more money embrace the Law of Abundance. The Law of Abundance refers to more than just financial abundance. You can have abundance in many areas of your life; love, health, time, patience, creativity etc.
The Law of Abundance states there is an abundance of food, love, light, compassion, opportunity and money in the world; that there is enough for everyone. It is the belief that there are no limits; that life is abundant and that everything you want or need is already available to you.
As you read those statements do they feel true for you or do you doubt them? Do you believe that life is abundant, that there are no limits, that everything is available to you? You must align with those beliefs if you want to experience more abundance in your life.
To align with the law of abundance think of a part of your life that is absolutely abundant right now. Remember Abundance is more than money. It can be love from your spouse, your family, friends, creativity etc. Anything that you know flows freely in your life.
Focus your attention on how easy these things come into your life and how abundant you are in those areas of your life. Tony Robbins says, “Energy flows where attention goes”.
As you focus on the abundance of those things you already have you bring the energy of abundance into your life. Your vibration expands and you will begin to align with the law of abundance which will bring more abundance to all areas of your life.
Affirmation: I give thanks for all the abundance in my life right now and welcome even more to come into my life.

My first child was born on this day, Earth day, quite a few years ago. She was such a sweet surprise and has filled my life with love and joy. We surprised her on her 21st birthday by renovating the car in this picture. It was her first car and like her baby. She loved it so much but the engine had died. When her brother drove it up the driveway that day it was such a sweet surprise for her.

It can be difficult to understand the language of the Universe. It doesn’t use the same language we do it speaks to us through vibration and energy. It uses synchronicity, signs and your intuition or that little voice that speaks to your soul to communicate.
If you want to experience more with the help of the Universe you must raise your vibration and your energy. To raise your vibration/energy you have to raise your thought patterns and your emotions to more positive and empowering ones.
The words you use, the thoughts you hold in your mind consistently and the emotions you feel on a regular basis have a certain energy to them and carry a specific vibration which the Universe feels/hears.
Positive emotions like love, peace or gratitude have a high vibration to them. When you feel them you are vibrating at a higher frequency. Emotions such as fear, anger or hopelessness hold a lower vibration and will bring your vibration down.
The Universe will respond to your vibration and bring you things that match your vibration. You must listen to the Universe’s language and pay attention to the signs, synchronicities and the intuition from your soul that it sends you as they will lead you to where you are meant to go.
Affirmation: I pay attention to the language of the Universe.
Flow with the tides and seasons of your Life. Let Grace move you easily and effortlessly through this journey we call Life.

We can however, pay attention and become aware of our thoughts. We can give energy and emotion to whatever we want to. We can give lots of emotion to the things we want to experience.
We can consciously place any thoughts we want into your mind anytime. We can repeat thoughts of the things we want more of throughout the day.
We can feed our mind information that inspires us. We can read things that lift our spirit and our mood. We can do things that increase our positive thoughts and take us higher. When we master our mind we can master our life.
Affirmation: I master my mind by feeding it positive thoughts and affirmations.

You decide! No one can decide for you. You decide who you are, what you are, where you are, who you are becoming or where you are going in your life.
No one can tell you who you are, no one can tell you who you are becoming. No one can limit you or hold you back unless you let them so….. Don’t let them!

With all life’s distractions it can be difficult, to be present. We often dwell on the past or worry about the future despite the fact that it is impossible to be anywhere but right here, right now in this present moment.
To stay in the present moment be open, receptive and be mindful of what is going on in your life. To fully experience everything you have to be wide awake, use all your senses and pay attention to the details.

Truth has an energy to it and so do lies. When you listen to your intuition you can feel if someone is being truthful with you and people can tell if you are being honest.

Speak the truth yourself and pay attention to your intuition and if something is off with another be aware.
Affirmation: I speak the truth and I surround myself with the energy of truth.
“From a pure heart anything can be accomplished. If you ask what the universe is doing, it is eavesdropping on your every desire”. Deepak Chopra
What are the thoughts that come into your mind consistently? Are they creative thoughts, thoughts of love, peace, joy and abundance or are they thoughts of limitation, lack and fear? Everything is energy and energy vibrates at a certain level. Your thoughts are energy. Your consistent thoughts make up your beliefs, your beliefs will determine your actions which will dictate where your energy is vibrating.
Your thoughts are seeds planted into the Universal Mind. The Law of the Universe must obey for it is the Creative Soil through which all things come into manifestation or form. You are like a farmer planting seeds, if you plant pumpkin seeds you will grow pumpkins, you will never grow watermelons from pumpkin seeds.
The same is true for you; you will not experience love and abundance if your consistent thoughts are of fear, lack or limitation. Your thoughts are seeds and they dictate your beliefs, actions and your vibration. The Universal Mind is the soil. Your life is the manifestation of your thoughts, beliefs, and actions, which all determine your vibration.
When your vibration is in harmony with the Abundant Universe doors will open, opportunities will arrive, synchronicity will appear, magic will happen, and you will be guided to move in the direction that serves your highest good.
Whatever seeds you plant into the cosmic consciousness will become manifest. We do not question how the plant springs from the soil we only know that if we plant pumpkin seeds, pumpkins will grow. We don’t always know how our desires and dreams will come to be that is the job of the Universe.
Our job is to plant the seeds, water them, nurture them, follow the guidance from the Universe, make sure we don’t step on them as they begin to grow and watch our lives grow into the beautiful manifestation they are meant to be.
Be aware of your thoughts. Place thoughts of love, health, abundance and peace into your mind consistently with passion and you will vibrate at that energy level creating a beautiful garden in your life. Place thoughts of fear, lack or limitation with consistency and certainty and your life will produce that as well. Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. The choice is yours. What kind of garden do you wish to grow?
Affirmation: Today, I plant the seeds of love, health, abundance and peace in the Universal Consciousness; I affirm it, I praise it, I nurture it, I give thanks and I let it grow!
We all need a little help sometimes; a little support, a little comfort, a little kindness, or maybe a little angel on our shoulder. You never know when your caring or thoughtfulness can make a big difference to another.
Give thanks for the angels that have touched you with their kindness and show kindness to others. You just might be an angel for someone.
If you can be anything today be kind.
Affirmation: I show thoughtfulness and kindness to everyone I see today because I just may be someone’s angel.
No matter what is going on in your life right now there is always something to be grateful for. Begin and end each day counting your blessings.
What is one thing you are grateful for now and one thing that you hope for this month? Focus your attention and your energy on those things right now. Give thanks for the blessings and see your hope as being manifest in your life.
Affirmation: I give thanks for the many blessings in my life and I focus my attention and my energy on ________ (your hope) knowing it as complete.
Love can do so much! Love guides, Love enriches, Love hopes, Love endures, Love inspires, Love creates, Love expands, Love blesses, Love cleanses, Love forgives, Love teaches and Love heals.
Love heals the wounds that hate causes. Love shifts your vibration bringing you even more Love and more Good. Love opens your heart, your mind and it will heal your whole world.
Affirmation: I let Love Heal me and shower me with more Good.
You can’t laugh and be afraid at the same time. Laugh more and you will fear less making you even more fearless!!

“I love how good I feel when I feel good!” I love this quote from my husband. It is a reminder of how good things can be when our energy is high.
The picture above is when we were on our honeymoon in Italy. He was completely lost in the moment, lost in the music and lost in the magic of Rome.
When you feel good your energy is uplifted, your vibration is higher and you will attract more good into your life. Do more of the things that take you higher and make you feel good.
Affirmation: Today I devote time to doing things that make me feel good, things that lift my energy so that more good will flow into my life.
Who are the people that you spend time with? Who are the people that you think of and speak to often? Who are the people that you give your energy to? Who are the people that play a major part in your life?
Do they support you, inspire you, help you learn or help you grow? Do they encourage you to reach for the stars? Are they positive human beings or do they dwell on the negative?
Some people fill you up and others drain you. Make sure the people that play a starring role in your life are the ones that help you reach your full potential.
Affirmation: I spend my time and give my energy to the the people that support and inspire me to be more.

I love this time of year! I watch the flowers in my garden reach for the light as they wake from their slumber. The birds cheerful songs greet the new day as they search for food for their young.

We are all connected to each other and to the consciousness of humankind. We can take each other higher and help each other along this journey we call life.
When you find it within yourself to reach out to another and care for them you make a difference not only in their life but in your own. The energy from that action also expands into the Creative Consciousness of the world.
Your action actually makes the world a better place. Anytime you make the world a better place you have succeeded in life. You have begun to leave a legacy of love.

We’re all here to experience love, understanding, joy, creativity, wonder and the gifts life can bring to each of us but there is something that is unique to you. Something only you bring to the world.
Listen to your heart, your inner knowing and you will find your why. It speaks to you in a whisper or it yells loudly refusing to be silent. Either way follow your inner truth and your why will be revealed.
Affirmation: I listen carefully to my inner voice and I let my “why” lead the way.
I love the quote above and this quote by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe… “Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” Whatever it is you dream of or want to do just begin it. Be bold and you will find more ideas and generate more confidence and more power.
When you take action and begin something new you create momentum which creates a snowball effect and brings things to you like magic. Taking action also gives you more energy to continue.
As the quote above says begin with doing with what is necessary, what you must do, then proceed to the things that are possible. Those things may take a little effort but if it’s possible you can do it. Before you know it the momentum will have you doing the impossible.
Affirmation: Today I begin it, I do what is necessary and what is possible knowing soon I will be doing the impossible.
The Universe is forever expanding into more Good. You are always moving into more as well, moving into a fuller expression of who you are meant to be. Have faith that better days are coming.

Change can indeed be beautiful! Today is the first full day of spring in New England and after a long cold winter we are very grateful for it! The days are longer, the sun is warmer and the flowers and buds on the trees are beginning to pop.
The changes that spring bring signify growth and rebirth. The plants grow as they reach for the sun, the flowers come back to life brightening the earth with their glorious color and the animals welcome their new babies. A truly magical time of year after the cold, gray and lonely days of winter. Spring lifts our spirits and gives us hope. Hope for brighter days and happier times.
Change is all around us this time of year. Actually the only constant in life is change. The world and you are constantly in a state of flow; forever flowing, moving and changing into greater versions of life itself. Embrace the changes in your life and find the wonder in each new adventure. Change is necessary, change is good and change can be oh so beautiful!
There are slices and shades of heaven everywhere. They uplift you and make your heart happy. Find those slices of heaven wherever you are today!
The Universe is FOR you, always showering you with love. Open your heart & your mind and feel the Love and the Light rushing in.
I love rainbows! Every time it rains and the sun begins to come out I look for the rainbow; the colors and the way they light up the sky are truly magical! The problem is they only happen after the rain so you have to put up with some rain if you want the color and the magic. If you are experiencing a little rain in your life right now remember to look for the light, the magic and the rainbow.
Let the magic of the day fill you with wonder!
Letting go is the one thing that many people forget to do and it’s one of the most important things to do. If you don’t let go and trust that your desire is on its way to you its like you have planted a seed and then stepped on it before it has a chance to come to fruition.
Letting go may be difficult for you, especially if you like to control things, but there are so many things to let go of. Let go of your beliefs about you that do not serve your highest good. Let go of your beliefs about the world that do not support you.
Let go of thinking your life should be different from what it is right now.
Decide what you want to experience in your life, see it and feel it as if it’s already done then let it go and let the Universe bring it to you. Pay attention to the signals the Universe sends you and follow the guidance you receive. Have faith that Life is unfolding as it should. Let go and trust in the glory and the power of the Divine.
Sometimes the road is rough and the mountains you have to climb over are high but keep going. It will all be worth it in the end. You’ve got this!
Sometimes there is a disconnect between what you seek and what is seeking you. Sometimes we put things out into the Universe hoping they will become manifest in our lives but we inadvertently block them from happening.
Sometimes we think things should happen a certain way but the Universe has it’s own idea of how things should work out. Sometimes we plant a seed but step on the sapling before it emerges from the darkness.
We have to learn to let go and trust the Universe has our back. Trust and let go of any fear that our soul’s desires are not going to be brought to us. Trust and let go knowing that all is in Divine Order.
The Universe supports you, the Universe is always FOR you, the Universe has magic and miracles in store for you. What is meant for you is on it’s way to you right now.
Have faith and let the Universe bring the whispers of your soul to you.
Surrender to all the wonder the Universe has in store for you!
Storms come and storms go so hold on through the waves that crash against the shore; the ebbs and flows of the current; the ups and downs on life’s journey and know it is going to be alright. Everything is in Divine Order!
Forgive everyone; if not for them do it for you. Forgiveness heals your heart, mind and body. It frees you from holding on to stuff you don’t need anymore and allows you to move on. It frees you from letting the person or people play a starring role in your life. It gives you more time, more energy and more room to bring the people that will support you and encourage you on your life’s journey. Forgive, let go and move on.
Life can be full of surprises, some sweet and some not so much. When those surprises are not so sweet try to look on the bright side. There is always something to learn and eventually you may find it was even a blessing.
Starting something new can be scary and exciting at the same time. According to Medical News Today when you’re afraid your breathing and your heart rate increase, your peripheral blood vessels (in the skin etc), constrict, blood vessels around your organs dilate so they can flood them with oxygen, and your muscles are pumped with blood ready to respond.
To relieve the anxiety or fear remember that your body does the same thing physiology wise whether you are exited or scared; the only difference is in your mind so when you feel the anxiety of fear creeping in say to yourself “I’m so excited about this new adventure!” It will help you release some of the stress and fear.
Think about what you want to accomplish with starting something new. Think about why you want to do it. Think about all that you will gain from this new adventure. How will it improve your life? How will it improve the life of others? Energy flows where focus goes so focus on the positive outcomes it will bring to your life and get excited! You’ve got this!
Let the full expression of your soul rise up and fly free!
Clarity is power, not being clear takes your power away. When you are not clear things can stop you in your tracks and derail you from your dreams. When you are not clear the Universe can send you things that you may not want to help you gain clarity about what you do want.
When you are clear about who you are, what you want and why you want it nothing can stop you. No mountain is too high. No obstacle can sidetrack you. No bumps or bruises can hold you down. No detours can block you from reaching you destiny.
Get clear about who you are, why and what you want and the Universe will support you. Doors will open and the road will be made clear for you. Get clear and claim your power!
As you travel through life you will enter and exit many phases. The secret to living a happy life is to learn to appreciate and savor them all.
It all begins with one step, take the first step and keep walking.
The day my mother died she taught me just how powerful we all are. She was in the hospital in a different state but she mentally contacted my sister and me. We called each other and said let’s go see mom today then we called our other sisters and that afternoon we were all on a flight to see her. When my father left the hospital to pick us up at the airport my mom made her way home to the Light. While she passed we were on the plane watching the most beautiful sunset I had ever seen. My father picked us up at the airport and we went straight to the hospital. My father found out he had lost the love of his life surrounded by his four daughters. My mother choreographed that day. She mentally told us to come so my father would not be alone and she sent us that sunset to comfort us and let us know she was going home. She sent the same gorgeous sunset the day I got married. She was there watching over us, rejoicing with us!

Every step will give you new information, give you an opportunity to have a different view, take you higher and bring you closer to your goals as you reach your full potential on your journey to enlightenment.

Real Love feels good. It nourishes, warms and uplifts us. Real Love helps us to be better versions of ourselves and helps others move into more of who they are meant to be. It nurtures, encourages and empowers us. It is peaceful and joyful. Real Love reminds us of the Love that we are at our core and reminds us of the Love that we have always been and always will be.
I believe in you, I have faith in you…You’ve got this!
On my way home from vacation the other day my flight was delayed for 3 hours, we sat in the plane on the tarmac and the taxi way for 3 hours, just as we were about to finally take off they pulled us off the runway and we returned to the gate where we de-boarded and waited another hour to hear the flight was canceled. I waited another 4 hours to finally get on a flight home.
The day was certainly full of surprises but I stayed centered, patient, remained open and at many points I just had to laugh. During my trip home I met some really nice people, had some good laughs and finally a safe flight home on a much nicer plane. The surprises life presents you can be wonderful and sometimes not so much but when you’re centered and open you can find the good and you’ll enjoy the ride much more.
Angels can show up in many different ways. Wherever you are, whatever is going on there are always angels around you and you can be the angel for another. Let your Light shine always.
Practice being patient often so you can strengthen that muscle; you never know when you may really need to use it!
Shake up the world with random acts of love and kindness today and every day. Plot, plan, scheme, surprise, delight and think up new ways to shower those you care about and the world with Pure Love. Find the joy in reaching out and touching others with your heart.

On this day that we celebrate love may Pure Love whisper its name to you from morning til night. May love hold you in its tender embrace. May love flow through you in all you think, do and say. May you be love, see love, feel love and share love all day long. May you be surrounded in love, guided by love and know that you are loved always.
You are part of the Whole. Every glorious fiber of your being is woven from Stardust and spun into the magnificent tapestry we call Life.
A dream of a compelling future, a wish for something better, hope for brighter days is what makes people love life despite the challenges or pain that may occur. Hold onto your dreams, wishes and hopes for a compelling future no matter what.
Love…Pure, Unconditional, Sacred, Divine Love that moves everything into being; Love that drives Life itself to burst into manifestation and reach & grow; Love that gives of itself and requires nothing…is how everything came to be. It is who we all are at our core and it is why we are all here. Let Divine Love drive you to reach and grow into a fuller expression of you.
You are loved completely and unconditionally right here, right now and forever more!
The days can become so busy and they turn into weeks, months and years in the blink of an eye. Our attention often goes in so many different directions that we forget to take time to nurture, replenish and love ourselves. Find the time, the things and the places that nourish your soul and make them a must for you. Make the time to really love you!
Breathe it in and let it out in all you do!
Love is your Soul purpose, Love is where you came from and Love is who you are. Love can help raise the consciousness of our world. Love can shine a light to help us out of the darkness. Love can heal wounds. Hate will never overcome hate only Love will. If it seems like Love isn’t working just increase the dosage!
People want and need to be loved. Unfortunately there are walking wounded among us but they shine a light on the wounds in us all so we can heal them. We need more candles to help us find our way out of the darkness so have faith, let Love guide you and remember everything is moving us into a fuller expression of who we are meant to be. Keep shining your Love!!
You are made of Love; you are Loved beyond measure and you are held in the arms of Divine Love always!
Inject a new dimension of Love into your veins and into the veins of our civilization.
I love that there is a holiday to celebrate Love. I like to spend the whole month sharing thoughts on Love. Bruce Springsteen is one of my favorite musicians. His music and his wisdom move me and teach me. Love will indeed better us and we must work for it’s blessings.
How do you work for Love’s blessings? Do you meditate or pray? Do you listen to you heart, the love inside and let it guide you? Do you treat others with respect and compassion? Do you have faith that everything is helping you move into more of who you are meant to be? Do you look on the bright side? Do you learn and grow from everything? What can you do this week to work for Love’s blessings?
The vibration of your soul is the frequency of the Divine, the frequency of God, the frequency of Life itself.
We are all One! Connected to the Divine and to each other always. No matter what happens Love one another with a love so pure it raises your vibration and the vibration of all those you come into contact with. We can take each other higher and raise the vibration of the collective energy of the planet with Pure Unconditional Love.
I love that we have a holiday that celebrates LOVE! Celebrate Love every day and let it guide you in all that you think, do and say!!
The title of my latest children’s book “The Magic is in You” is such a true statement. The magic really is in you! Everything you need to feel that magic is within you right now. There is a spark of divinity, a seed of creativity and a touch of magic that is hidden deep inside every one of us. All you have to do is access it and let it burst into its full expression.
There are several things you can do to access the Magic. When you are still in the quiet of meditation it will speak to you. When you are giving unconditionally to anything or anyone with no thought of receiving it will whisper your name. When you connect the light inside you with the Light that flows throughout eternity you will get swept up in the magic; the magic that is You. Let that magic guide you and lead you to an enchanted and truly extraordinary life!
There is a big beautiful world out there. What inspires you? What lights you up? What touches your heart and makes your soul sing? Whatever it is do more of those things and let yourself be inspired today!
We don’t know how much time we have so treat each moment with reverence and gratitude.
There may be a wounded child within that needs your love and acceptance. Hold that child in your arms with tender, love and care. Reassure them and let them know it is okay, that it is all in Divine Order. There is also a glorious child within that needs to be honored and expressed. Cherish that delightful child with all your heart and allow that child to express itself in your life. Let that happy, radiant child that lives within color your world with: laughter and fun, sweet innocence, creative play, unconditional love and pure joy.
Let your Light shine! Don’t hide your light or play small; let the brilliant expression of Light that is you shine brightly and light up the world!
You have within you a wealth of wisdom that will guide you in all directions
Your scars add a dimension and a depth to who you are and who you are to become. They add to the beauty that is You!
We have many differences from each other. Physical; we may look like people in our family or have similar features of another but there is no one that looks exactly like you do. Talents: we each have talents and gifts that are unique to us. Emotional; we have all been through different experiences and we give our own meaning to the events in our lives. Intellectual; we all learn at different levels and choose to focus on learning different things. Spiritual; we all have our own beliefs about ourselves, about life and the world.
Despite all these differences we are actually more alike than we are different. We were all born into this world and some day we will all pass from this plane. We all have basic human needs. We all need love & connection, certainty, variety and significance; when we have those we need growth and contribution. Let us love one another, learn from one another, respect one another, appreciate each other and live peacefully on this glorious planet together.
Life has a way of helping us gain clarity about what we are here to experience this lifetime. When you learn from a situation it is not a failure; it becomes a lesson giving us new information and moves us in a new direction.
We all have an opportunity each day to do something extraordinary; something that will benefit yourself, another or the world at large.
I have a dream; a dream of a world that respects each person and honors the gifts that each of us bring to the world. A dream where we each know our own value and value others. A dream of a world that teaches children to love themselves & others; to develop critical thinking skills, to create, explore and expand their comfort zone. A dream of a world that cherishes life and the planet we live on. What is your dream?
Love, pure unconditional Love, can change the trajectory of your life forever. It can change the life of another and it can change our society and our world. It starts with you; loving you helps you love others. Inject pure Love into your own veins by loving all of who you are right now, that love will create a snowball effect. It will reach out and touch all those you come into contact with. It will raise your vibration and lift the vibration and the consciousness of our world.
Sometimes being patient, trusting the Universe, listening to your inner wisdom and having faith can be difficult but the more you do all those things the easier they become and the better your life will be. Be patient, trust, listen, have faith; it all really is in Divine Order!
Over the last 2 years each one of us and the world have been forced to rethink how we do things. I joke that we have all been sent to our room to think about how we have been behaving; how we think, what we do, how we treat each other, what our priorities are etc. I hope these last 2 years have taught us all at least this one important lesson: Life is PRECIOUS! It is often fleeting and it can be so fragile, sometimes ending when you least expect it.
My cousin and a friend both recently passed away unexpectedly. The deaths were shocking really and I thought about all the lives that have been lost these last 2 years. There is sadness in the losses and sadness in the inability to come together to hold services for them and support the living. I hope through all this sadness our hearts have been opened. I hope we have learned how to really appreciate one another. Hold those you love a little tighter, express your love more often, appreciate those you love more and give thanks for the precious gift of life. I hope we have all learned just how precious Life really is.
Random thoughts come and go; let the ones that limit you go and fill your mind with the most powerful thought of all. Fill your mind with thoughts of Love; let them soothe you, heal you, inspire you and guide you.
The sun is always behind the clouds. There is always a silver lining; it may be difficult to see sometimes but it’s there. We each have an opportunity to look on the bright side to see the silver lining and catch a glimpse of the sun.
Money is energy, it’s necessary for this journey and it can do so many good things. Take a look at your beliefs about money. Do you think it’s a wonderful tool to enhance your life and the lives of others or do you think it’s the root of all evil? Do you value the gifts it can bring you, your family and friends and the world at large? Do you honor it, appreciate it and act responsibly and respectfully with it? When you take care of your money by treating it with gratitude, responsibility and respect it will come to you in expected and unexpected ways. Take care of your money and it will take care of you.
I often exercise in the morning by dancing around my house. I play music, let go and dance like no one is watching. It’s so much fun and such an easy way to exercise. Try it; you might just feel the joy bubble up inside you.
People have free will to do as they choose. They make their decisions based on their experiences, thoughts and beliefs and act accordingly. We don’t always understand the why, we don’t always know what they have been through. We cannot control another or save another, they must save themselves. Let us love them unconditionally.
The best way to expand your comfort zone is to do something that scares you so go ahead take a risk, push yourself and try something that scares you today.
No matter what has gone before in your life. No matter what is going on now, Never Give Up. Hang in there. You have come through tough times before. You have learned from every experience. You have grown through the years. You have more knowledge, you have more wisdom, and you have more experiences with every new day.
It may seem like there are mountains to climb but you have taken many steps before and all you have to do is continue to move forward. Continue to take one step at a time. Continue to learn from each experience. Continue to grow from each lesson life teaches you. Continue to climb the mountain.
You have a depth of love that is unlimited within. You have a wealth of wisdom to draw from. You have new opportunities to learn and grow from every day. You got this!
Today pay attention to the little things. Those small moments that can surprise you, touch your heart or take your breath away. These are the moments that can create a well lived and well loved life.
Today is Baxter, my dog’s, 3rd birthday and he really has been an angel these last few years. I have spent so much time alone with all the quarantining that I would have been very lonely without him. Thank you Baxter! Who are the angels in your life?
What is your word for the year? What are you going to focus on? Where your attention goes energy flows. What you focus on you get more of. If you focus on what is wrong with your life or what you lack you’ll get more things going wrong and more lack. If you focus on love, light, strength, courage, creativity… you’ll get more of those things. If the word you focus on is gratitude you’ll get more things to be grateful for. The choice is yours. Make sure your word for the year is something you want more of.
Crawl, walk, run, reach, stretch, grow and chase those dreams so you can catch them and make them your reality.
Begin each day with the intention that the best of you will shine through.
A new year begins, a time to begin anew and plan for a better year. A year that can take you higher, bring you new adventures and present you with new opportunities. It’s a great time to imagine the possibilities of what your life can become. What do you want your year to look like?
Take a moment right now to write down your wildest dreams for the year. Use all your senses and your imagination and really feel everything coming to be. Pour energy into what you are imagining and writing down. The written word has power so make sure you take the time to really explore your heart’s desires and write in the present tense as if everything has happened. Be open to your potential, be open to your unlimited possibilities and let your spirit sing! Make a plan and do one thing today that will take you in the direction of your dreams.
It’s your life, your story. Begin your next new chapter with love, gratitude and faith. Listen to the whispers of your soul and make your story extraordinary!!
As 2022 begins take time to reflect on the past year. What are your favorite memories? What touched your heart the most? What did you learn? What surprised you? What steps did you take to move in the direction of your dreams? How did you touch someone with your love? How did you help someone learn and grow? Who did you surprise? How did you help someone move in the direction of their dreams? What can you do in this New Year to make your life and the life of another even better?
Wishing you and those you love a year filled with Radiant Health, Divine Love, Magical Moments, Pure Joy, Everlasting Peace, Avalanches of Abundance; plenty of precious memories that open your heart, and exciting experiences that take you to a higher place!
Today is the last day of the year, tomorrow begins a new year. A new chapter of your life story begins. A new opportunity to make your dreams come true. What will you do to make it extraordinary!
Spend time in the silence of your own heart and ask yourself: Where do you want to go and what do you want to accomplish in the new year? Write down the answers that come to you. Go into the silence again and ask yourself how you can make those things happen. Listen to the whispers of your soul and write them down. Come up with a few things you can do that will take you in the direction of your heart’s yearning. Adjusting your direction by even one degree and can alter the trajectory of your life forever. Adjust accordingly!
Of all the virtues that enhance your life Gratitude is the greatest. It anchors you in Pure Love and has a transformative effect on your life. What have you been grateful for this year? Try this idea that Tony and Sage Robbins shared. Think of the past year; look at pictures to help you remember and create a slide show to remind you of all the gifts the year has brought you. Watch it throughout the coming year whenever you want to raise your vibration or whenever you want a reminder of how precious life can be.
As 2021 comes to a close and the new year approaches take time to reflect. Reflect on this past year. What have you accomplished? What did you want to accomplish but didn’t get a chance to? What have you learned? How have you grown? What worked for you and what didn’t work for you? What are your best memories from the year? What do you want to accomplish next year? How can you support yourself in the coming year? Reflect on the past year and create a plan for the new year.
The Universe is listening to you and feeling your vibration. It responds to your vibration by bringing experiences of the same vibration to you. If you want to experience specific things do these 3 things. First ask; put it out to the Universe with a pure heart. It is done to you as you believe so the second thing is to believe with every fiber of your being; believe that it is already done. Next fill your mind, heart and body with joyful expectation and open your arms to receive.
There is Magic in the Season, Magic in the Universe, Magic in the Air, Magic in You. Allow it to come to you, through you, from you and multiply all around you. Let it raise your vibration and raise the vibration of the Collective Consciousness. Ask, believe & receive the Magic of the Universe!

May peace fill your heart; may peace ease your mind; and may peace be ever present in our world today and every day.
In this season of Light & Love. Let your Light shine brightly for all the world to see! Let the Love within flow out into everything you think, do and say!
What does Christmas mean to you? For some it is a day to celebrate the birth of Jesus. For some it is a day to remember the teachings of unconditional love, to remember that we are all connected to each other and to the Divine/Source/God/Creative Intelligence (whatever name you use). For some it is a time to celebrate with family and friends. For some it is about giving presents, helping those less fortunate or sharing time with loved ones. For some it is the most magical day of the year. For some there may be sadness or longing. For others it is just an ordinary day.
Today is the anniversary of my mom’s passing 19 years ago. I love her and miss her so but her memory lives in my heart, her spirit flows through my veins and I feel her Love watching over me. Whether you have lost someone precious in your life recently or years ago Love is always watching over you!
Seeing isn’t believing, believing is seeing! Believe in the Magic, believe in your dreams, believe in the possibilities, believe in yourself for the Magic is in You!
The holidays can be magical for some and difficult for others. Remember what is most important. Love and nurture yourself and the people you cherish. Share your love and kindness with others. Savor those magical moments that can often grace your life. Take time to stop and give thanks for all the blessings in your life.
Love never dies, it lives on in your heart and in your mind. Any time you stop, close your eyes and just remember a time when love was present in your life you can feel that love and let it flow through you flooding your mind and body with Pure Unconditional Love!
Who are you? How you answer that question makes a big difference in the life you live. Your beliefs about yourself, the ones you hold deep within, will impact how you think, what you say, how you feel in every situation and what you do on a consistent basis. Examine your beliefs about yourself: do they empower you, do they build you up or do they beat you up? If they do not serve your highest good change them.
Your mind is like a computer; when you ask a question it searches for the answer. Make sure the questions you ask yourself will take you higher. If you ask “how can I learn and grow from this” you will get a very different answer than if you ask “Why does everything bad happen to me?” It also wants to be right so if you make a statement about yourself it will search for evidence to support that. If you say I am strong, powerful, loving etc. it will search for memories to support that. If you say you are not enough it will search for memories to support that as well. Change your beliefs about yourself and you will change your life. Who are you?
The Universe has miracles and magic in store for you. Be still and listen to the whispers of the Soul speak to you.
The great masters and teachers throughout history teach that Pure Unconditional Love is the most important thing. Live in the vibration of that Love and watch miracles happen.
The Universe/God/Source (whatever name you prefer) loves you and supports you all day long. The Universe and everything in it is always moving into a fuller expression of itself and that includes you. You are constantly moving into more of who you are at your core. Connect with that Energy that flows through all time and space and feel that love. Let it wash over you, let it fill you up, let it cleanse you, heal you and let it guide you All-Day-Long!
I’m possible…you’re possible… Life is full of endless possibilities! Be open to them today and every day.
Your thoughts when focused and backed with consistent positive emotion become “Pure Thoughts”. Those pure thoughts create an energy that become powerful tools for manifesting the life you dream of.
Let the spark within burst into a flame to light the way!
I was recently at Disney World with my 5 year old granddaughter and she thought everything was magic but the truth is she was the magic. She lit up like a firefly at just about everything. Her eyes twinkled, her smile shined the light from within and she would burst into dance often as she was much too excited to just walk. It was one of those magical memories that will stay with me forever. I’ll be going again with 3 of my other grandchildren and I can hardly wait! I’m sure it will be another magical experience!
The other day my husband and I were shopping for a Christmas tree and suddenly Santa appeared. I was so surprised and so delighted I practically leaped into the air and yelled out Hi Santa as I waved excitedly. I felt like Will Ferrell in Elf… “Santa, I know him!” My husband laughed at my enthusiasm, reminded me that I am not 7 years old anymore but enjoyed it and admired it as well. It was one of those times when you let the pure joy from within just burst into it’s full expression. That’s the magic and it’s in you! Let the innocence of pure joy burst into it’s full expression and feel the magic of you!
Ask for what you want, ask for guidance, ask for an answer; believe with every fiber of your being you will receive it and you will not be denied, you will receive it!
Spread some light, share some love, show some kindness, touch some lives, give from your heart, expand your comfort zone and create some magic. Do something today that will help make this month a December to remember for you and for others!!
Win or lose keep trying, keep moving and keep playing.
I love this season! The energy of so many people giving, having hope, caring for others and believing in the magic of Love is infectious. Go on get infected and have a glorious month!!
You are a gift; a gift to those you know and a gift to some people that you don’t even know.
Be a candle to light the way or a mirror to be a reflection of the light.
Within you there is wisdom, strength, love & magic! Take time to tap into all that lies within you every day.
You really are!!! The whole Universe is on your side!!
Today is Thanksgiving in the US, one of my favorite holidays! A day devoted to gratitude, giving, family, friends and food. May your day be filled with gratitude and love!
Appreciate what you have, where you are, what you do and who you are right now.
My daughter and I were at a yoga retreat when she reached out to take my hand during shavasana. It was such a precious moment and I’m so grateful a photographer captured it so I can relive that moment whenever I want. Give thanks for the hands that hold yours; give thanks for the love that touches you; give thanks for the good times and the ones that don’t always seem so good; give thanks for the lessons and the gifts,; give thanks for it all.
Everything is helping you uncover the greatness within as you reach your full potential. Begin a Gratitude journal and write 3 things you are grateful for every day. Another easy exercise to bring gratitude into your life is at the end of each day as you lie in bed give thanks for 3 things that went well during the day. Do this every day and your world will begin to shift in miraculous ways.
Gratitude is such a powerful force. It fills your heart with joy and lifts your spirit. It gives you strength to face your fears which allows you to take risks and expand your comfort zone. As you expand your comfort zone you allow more into your life and abundance graces your life in expected and unexpected ways.
When the Universe blesses you with gifts of abundance, love, or grace say “Thank you, more please!”
Gratitude is wine for the soul, it’s also food for your mind and your heart. Drink up! Eat up! Fill your life and your world with the things that nurture your being and nourish your spirit. Fill your life with gratitude for everything that touches you, teaches you and helps you uncover the greatness that is you.
You were born to shine your light, your love and your joy on the world! Connect with all that light, love and joy that is at the very core of your being and let it be expressed through all that you think do and say!
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Tapping is a great tool which is taken from the ancient art of acupuncture to help you transform your life. Working with the energy that flows through your body via the meridians that exist in your body tapping helps to release stress, anxiety, pain etc. and increase wellness. It improves the flow of energy throughout your body which will help you raise your energy and your vibration which in turn sends a signal out to the Universe bringing things with a higher vibration back to you. It can help you unblock stuck energy so you can move freely and create the life of your dreams.
Kindness makes your day and the day of another so much better. Touch someone with kindness today.
The dictionary defines appreciate as: to grasp the nature, worth, quality, or significance of something or someone or; to increase in number or value. What you appreciate grows, expands and appreciates. When you fully grasp the worth of something its value increases. As you appreciate and give thanks for all the gifts in your life more gifts will come to you. Take a moment today to appreciate your life. Make time to stop and appreciate all the little things and the big things and watch them all increase!
Your decisions are commitments but your approach can be flexible. Things change, you live and learn, and sometimes your approach has to change with the new information. Be flexible but stay committed.
There is always something to be grateful for. Give thanks for all the blessings in your life!
Rejoice, delight and be happy for the success of others. Feel their joy as if it’s your own, imagine your own successes and triumphs as if they are complete and you will raise your vibration. The Universe doesn’t know if the joy, success or triumphs are yours or if they come from someone else it only feels your vibration and responds to it by bringing more successes and more things to be joyful for to you.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Powerful words, powerful state of mind! Thank someone today!
I just spent a week with my son, daughter-in-law, granddaughter (5 years old) and grandson (3 years old) at Disney World and we laughed every day! Things didn’t always go the way we wanted: there were things out of our control like the weather, the internet and the lines but we laughed every day. I don’t focus on the things that went a different way than we hoped I choose to focus on the laughter. That precious laughter lifted my spirit, filled my mind with joy, made my heart so happy. Those priceless moments are memories I will cherish forever. Find a way to laugh every day; it’s good for the mind, body and soul.
Gratitude is magic! It costs nothing yet brings miracles and unlimited treasures into your world. What are you grateful for right now?
Positive Psychology is the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive. There are 24 character strengths that Martin Seligman from the University of Pennsylvania along with Christopher Peterson, 2 of the founders of Positive Psychology, identified.
Of all the character strengths Gratitude is the one that will bring about the most happiness and well-being. There are many ways to be grateful so develop a practice of Gratitude that works for you. Begin a gratitude journal; every night think of three things that went well that day; email, text or write people and let them know you appreciate them are just a few. If you want to thrive practice Gratitude!
Plant some seeds today!
When you are grateful the Universe sends you more things to be grateful for. Every night when you go to bed give thanks for 3 things that went well in your day. You’ll soon find more and more things to be grateful for.
Falling down happens to us all. It doesn’t matter how many times you fall down or how you fall or why you fall; the only thing that matters is that you get back up. Every fall has a lesson hidden in it; learn the lesson and you become stronger and the fall becomes a success. Fall, learn, get back up and you will succeed.
There is something good in each and every day even if the good is difficult to see on some days. Finding the good in each day makes life so much better.
Words have an energy and a power to them. Stop and think before you speak. What meaning do you want to convey? What kind of energy do you want your words to hold? How do you want your words to be felt and heard? Become conscious of the energy you put into your words, they have the power to heal and to hurt.
Today is my grandson’s birthday and this picture was taken when he was only a few days old. He has been a precious gift since the day he was born. He laughs easily and is filled with wonder and pure joy every day. Remember the joy, wonder and playfulness you had as a child and let the child within come out to play and explore this glorious life we have been given.
Life is filled with multiple choices and endless possibilities. It’s filled with questions that we must answer every day. We all have a choice as to how to answer them. We can answer them with love and understanding; with faith and grace or we can answer them with an open mind and a grateful heart. We can also answer them from a place of fear, doubt, ego, pride, pain or misunderstanding.
If we answer the questions life brings us with an open mind and a grateful heart we will experience life a certain way. On the other hand if we answer them coming from a place of doubt or fear we will experience life in a completely different manner. The choice is ours alone and our life will be a reflection of our answers. Choose wisely.
You never know who will show up as angel when you need one or when you will be an angel for someone else. Be kind always and be open to receive.
Cherish, honor, appreciate, love, care for, and give thanks for the precious gift that is You!
If you want to experience something different in your life you have to do something different. You have to think differently, believe differently and you have to act differently. Even small differences in the way you think, believe and act can change the trajectory of your life forever. Take a look at your thoughts and beliefs and ask yourself if they take you in the direction you want your life to go in. If not consider adapting new thoughts and beliefs which will change your actions and change your life forever.
Change is the only constant in life so plunge into it, move with it and dance!
Our pain, our sorrow and our wounds can serve as our greatest teachers but they can also block our energy and hold us back from reaching our full potential if we don’t let them go. Let the feelings that go along with the pain move through you; hold on to the lesson but let go of the pain and the sorrow. Letting go will heal the wounds and reconnect you with your own vital energy so you can express more of who you really are.
Sharing happiness increases it in you and in others so share it!
When life gets painful hold on to your dreams. Let them ease the pain and take you higher.
You are a magnificent manifestation of the Most High. It’s who you are at your core: a glorious child of God/Goddess/All that Is. Uncover the greatness that is you.
Never give up on your dreams. Your dreams are on their way to you right now. They are like seedlings about to pop their head out of the soil. If you give up now it’s like stepping on that new seedling and you will kill it. Just like the seedling which you can’t see before it bursts its head from the ground your dreams are on their way to you. You may not be able to see them yet but have faith; plant the seed, nurture them and know they will come to fruition.
Let the deep desires of your heart, the sacred whispers of your soul guide you. The Universe wants your voice to be heard.
In a world where attentions can go in so many directions it’s important to focus your attention on you and your spiritual needs. As you create daily habits and rituals that nurture you and help you take care of yourself you become more of who you are meant to be. You also teach others how to treat you and how to take care of themselves. Nurture your spirit and treat yourself to some TLC (Tender Loving Care) today and every day!
After a recent trip to admire the gorgeous foliage in New England for a few days I came down with covid. I’m fine now and had a mild case but the games my mind played on me at the news were interesting. My mind went from a wave of shock and disbelief to worry and fear then total ease knowing I would be fine. Fortunately I had been vaccinated, was already on quarantine and on the mend by the time the test results arrived.
The thoughts that swirled through my mind at hearing the new surprised me though. I am the eternal optimist; I believe everything happens for a reason and I trust the Universe will support me but my mind still had it’s share of Oh No!; What if…?; Will I…? Sometimes life throws us curveballs and it may take us a minute to adjust but when we consciously take control of our thoughts we remember that the Universe does indeed have us. We are always held in the Loving Arms of the Divine/God/Source.
You have everything you need within. Your wings know how to fly you just have to take that leap of faith. You’ve got this so FLY FREE!
The magnificence of the Universe is within you. You are made of Stardust!
There is a depth and a beauty to your Light and your Color that is unique to you and positively brilliant. They may be hidden under layers of uncertainty, pain, fear or doubt but know they are there and they are meant to be shared. You are like no other and you can light up the world with the fire inside. Embrace all of you and set the world ablaze with your spectacular Light and Color!
The road you’re on now and everything you experience on it is designed just for you. Designed to help you uncover the greatness that is you.
Breaking limiting familial beliefs is so important. We all have thoughts and beliefs that came from generations before. We don’t even know where some of our beliefs came from. Take a look at your beliefs and replace any limiting ones with more empowering beliefs. Beliefs like: The Universe is FOR me! Life supports me! I am worthy! It is an abundant Universe! I am enough! I have all I need and more! Dreams do come true! As I heal myself I help my family heal! You can make a difference in what you experience and in the experiences of future generations.
You have to consciously rise above the noise by feeding your mind through meditation, books and affirmations.
When you open yourself up to the unlimited possibilities life offers and trust that the Universe supports you magic begins. Doors open, synchronicity appears, magic happens and the way is made clear. New opportunities present themselves that you may have missed or were no there before. Every step you take brings you new information, a clearer vision appears and you reach greater heights.
Begin each day connecting to Source/God and say “My path is clear, the Universe supports me and doors magically open always.” Know with every fiber of your being that the Universe does indeed support you, listen for the guidance it sends you, pay attention to the messages you receive, watch for the doors to open, give thanks for all the gifts you receive and let the magic of the Universe fill your world.
Life is full of surprises; full of twists and turns, some expected some not, but they all lead you to where you are meant to be.
Your thoughts dictate your beliefs and your feelings which dictate your vibration and the Universe brings to you the things that match your vibration. Change your thoughts and you will change your vibration which changes what the Universe brings to you.
Talk about what you want, visualize it and feel it as already done then make a plan to see it come into fruition. Schedule things, events and experiences that will take you in the direction of what you want. Dreams are whispers from your soul; anything is possible but you have to schedule things and take action to make them real.
You must take action to change the trajectory of your life. Make a plan and take one step at a time. Every new step will give you new information, a new vantage point and take you higher. You’ve got this!
Today is National Be Nice Day! Take a little extra time to be kind to one another!
Look for the good in each and every day, it’s there quietly waiting for your acceptance. Find it and give thanks for it!
I am Guided; I know who I am and what to do. Repeat every day!
There is nothing you are not worthy of! You are made in the image and likeness of the Divine; worthy of all the Good that flows through the Universe. You came from Love and are made of Love; it’s the very essence of your being. Love is always worthy! The Good of the Universe is in you and all around you. You are worthy right here, right now; claim it and allow it to flow through you.
Like a flower you are unfolding into the perfect expression of Life that is You!
Nothing in life has meaning except the meaning you give it. What meaning do you give to the events and experiences in your life? Do those meanings empower you and help you grow or do they disempower you and hold you back? Take a look at your stories and change the meanings into ones that will empower you, help you grow and expand into more of who you are meant to be.
Sometimes we just need to stop, relax and just be present to the precious moment of now.
Whether it’s a quantum leap or a single step keep moving and flowing down the river of Life. Movement brings momentum and momentum will move you closer to your dreams. You won’t get anywhere if you stand still. We are meant to take action and move. Movement leads to progress and progress leads to success. Take action and keep moving toward your dreams.
Fill your mind with empowering thoughts and quality questions and you will shift your energy. As you shift your energy you will change the trajectory of your life. Every decision you make, every step you take will give you new information. Keep learning and growing and you will reach new heights. Every leap and every step will bring you closer to where you are meant to be. Move & Trust the best is yet to be!
You are always held in the Loving Arms of the Divine!
Let your dreams, the still small voice within guide you and lead the way.
Here in New England the changes in each season are quite remarkable. There is beauty and wonder in every season. Spring has it’s steady growth and new birth; Summer brings warmth and sunshine; Fall brings glorious foliage and mild temperatures; Winter brings clean fresh air and often a magical winter wonderland. Life is always moving, seasons come and go. Flow with the beauty and wonder in every season of your life.
Find the joy today and every day and you will create a happy life.
Pine trees have shallow roots; they grow near each other because they need each other to grow tall and strong. We need each other to grow stronger too. Alone we can reach for the stars and we can reach great heights but together we can climb the mountain and soar above the stars.
You came from Light and you are made of Light. Let it flow through you and multiply all around you.
Today I am grateful for my health, for all the abundance in my life, for my family and friends and for you! What are you grateful for?
There is a well of strength within you that has yet to be discovered so just know: You’ve got this!
There is no one like you; you are one of a kind. There is something special, something unique, something that only you can bring to the world. Don’t compare yourself to anyone else; their journey is not yours. They have different lessons and gifts to experience and share. Focus on being the best version of you. Keep moving in the direction of your heart’s desires. Keep doing the things that make you come alive. The world needs you to come alive. The world needs your gifts and your Light!
Time is precious; every year, every day and each moment are a gift. They hold magic, miracles and infinite possibilities in them. Be present to the gifts the day brings and enjoy each precious moment of time.
A rose by any other name would still smell sweet. No matter what people say to you, about you or what they call you; you are still a magnificent expression of the Most High.
Be open to receive all the surprises and gifts the Universe has in store for you.
Today’s Thought for the Day is from my children’s book “The Song in You”. “Everyone has a song to sing. A special song that only you can bring…It’s part of the dream inside of you, So rejoice and to yourself be true. For you are truly one of a kind and the world needs your creative mind.”
Everyone really does have a song to sing; that includes you! There is something deep inside you that only you can bring. Something unique, something special, something etched on your soul, and something that whispers to you from your heart. Share it with the world!
When you really love yourself it’s easier to love others so work on loving you, all of you, then spread it around your world.
Our world is made up of different people from different countries with different looks, different languages, different talents, different customs and different beliefs. That’s what makes it so amazing but we must respect each other even though we are different. Let us love and accept each other now!
Feed your mind thoughts that inspire and uplift you throughout the day! Thoughts like: I am strong. I am enough. I am radiant health. I am creative. Avalanches of abundance grace my life in expected and unexpected ways. I am worthy of all the Good the Universe has to offer. I am guided and I know just what to do. I am always connected to Source. Good and more good is mine, an ever increasing good is mine, there is no limit to the amount of good that is mine, good flows to me, good flows through me, good flows from me and good multiples all around me!
There is always something to rejoice and be grateful for!
Your voice sends out a signal, a vibration to the Universe and it responds accordingly. Today would have been my father’s 101st birthday. I miss him dearly but I can still feel the energy that his voice sent out into the Universe. It was the energy of Pure Love and it still vibrates to me and through me out into the world. What does your voice create in the Universe?
You are Light, you are Love, you’re a miracle from above! You are nature’s very own creation, a pure and magical celebration!
When you look at anyone today try to see who they really are at their core. Try to see the light in their eyes, the joy in their smile, the love in their heart, the wisdom in their mind, the creativity of their imagination, the abundance that flows through them, and the perfection of their soul.
Try to see who they really are and you just might help them see it in themselves. You might increase those same things in yourself. You might even make the day a little brighter for someone and for yourself. You just might even make the world a little more beautiful!
You are experiencing and learning more every day so be patient with yourself and enjoy the view!
We all have a precious, innocent, radiant child within.. embrace that child and let their wonder remind you of the miracle of life.
Your healing heals you and at the same time it helps heal your significant other, your family, your pets, your past generations and your future generations. Imagine you are in a beautiful waterfall and let the healing waters wash over you. Release any past wounds. Let any feelings of pain, lack and loss drain from your body. Let them be washed away and then let the waters fill your entire being with Divine Love & Radiant Light. As you heal the broken parts of you you also help heal our world.
Morning is a magnificent time to feel the wonder of a new day and the power of Source. Connect to Source and let Love be your guide.
Today is new day in a new month, let a new dream come true.
You are always surrounded by Divine Love and that Love will guide you always.
The quality of your life is directly related to the quality of your questions. We are always asking questions, often we are not even aware of it. Become aware of the conversation in your own mind. What questions do you ask yourself daily. Do they empower you or do they diminish you? Do you ask “How can I create even more love, abundance and joy in my life” or do you ask “What’s wrong with me?’ or “How come nothing goes right for me?” Your brain is like a computer, if you ask it a question it will search for the answer. Make sure the questions you ask will bring you answers that will empower you not diminish you.
Miracles happen every day. Believe, Have Faith, Trust, Give Thanks, Let Go and your miracle will appear!
The magic is in YOU!
Some people lift you up, some people drag you down, some people teach you, some people learn from you and some people inspire you. We all have our own journeys in life and we come and go in many different directions. Some people join us on our journey for a moment and some for a lifetime. Fill your world with people that inspire you and help you grow.
Life is full of delightful opportunities and endless possibilities. You’ve got this!
Take a look at things from a different perspective; you may be surprised at what you see.
Sometimes a little rain must fall before you get to see the rainbow.
Life is always expanding, always becoming more of itself. It’s the way the Universe works and it’s the way you work. You are meant to grow into more of who you are at your core which is; Love, Light, Creativity, Abundance, Intelligence and Joy. You are here to be and experience more of those qualities.
Read, write, meditate, explore and challenge yourself. Try new things, go to new places and bring new information into your life. Do things that expand your awareness, your consciousness and your unique gifts. Reach for the stars; stretch beyond your comfort zone and grow into the full expression of Life that is you.
Loving you is the greatest gift you can give yourself and others. You are the only person you will spend your entire life with. Learn to really love you and your life will be blessed indeed.
After having to cancel 2 weddings my son will finally marry the woman of his dreams today. He and my future daughter-in-law have had to be flexible and rearrange their special day with open hearts and open minds. They have done so with grace, patience and understanding. Sometimes things don’t go as planned and we have to adjust and shift or expectations but remember that through it all dreams really do come true!
You are made of stardust; born with the stuff that dreams are made of. Magic and miracles have been imprinted on our soul and the seeds of love and joy have been planted in your heart. There is a light inside you that is destined to shine; it was there before you came here and it is always within you. Let that Light be your guide; let it heal and sustain you and let it shine brightly for all the world to see!
Not sure what the weather is like where you are but it is pouring here today! I have lots of emotions today so I am letting them flow through me like water running over me, cleansing me, renewing me and filling me with wonder. It is going to be okay!
Meditation is good for the body, mind and soul. Meditation comes in many different forms. You can sit in quiet contemplation or get lost in an activity like writing, dancing, singing, painting, photography, running, walking etc. Meditation in any form helps you flow easier with the tides of life.
How do you use your mind and your body? Exercise your mind as well as your body.
Look around; there is beauty and wonder everywhere. Nature will bathe you in it’s splendor if you let it. Go for a walk along the beach, in the mountains or just down your street. Notice the little things; the stillness of the morning, the quiet before dawn, the gentle rising and setting of the sun. There is so much to appreciate. The sweet smell of the flowers, the business of the bees, the birds exploring the air, the leaves swaying with the breeze; it’s all so beautiful. There is peace and perfection all around you. Find those places and those moments that remind you of the magnificence of Life. Let the beauty and the wonder of the world encourage you and inspire you.
Sometimes the road gets bumpy with lots of twist and turns. Sometimes the way gets dark and gray. Be a Light in the darkness to help brighten the way.
The possibility for more love, more joy, more abundance, and more adventures are ever present. Open up to more!
Your world and the world at large are changing, growing, expanding into a new level of being, a new consciousness, a new world. Labor can be difficult and it can be exhausting. Giving birth can have its pains and its uncertainties but the end result is glorious and so worth it. Breathe and love yourself through the transformation. This new world, your new world is waiting for your embrace!
Every day is a new opportunity to begin anew. Begin with Light, Faith, Purpose, Power & Grace!
The Universe loves you, supports you, is for you and is on your side Always!!!
You are a glorious manifestation of the Power and the Presence that was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be. Wake up to You!
Two people can have the same experience but give it very different meanings. One can see an event as an opportunity to grow while another can see the same experience as a reason there life isn’t the way they would like it or as an excuse to remain stagnant. Nothing in life has meaning except the meaning we give it. We are making it all up. What meaning do you give the events in your life? Does the meaning empower you or dis-empower you? Do you see everything as an opportunity to grow or do you see things as an excuse your life isn’t the way you want it to be?
It’s your choice, choose wisely.
Angels show up in all shapes and sizes and sometimes they look like you! You never know the impact you may have on another. You could be someone’s angel today so keep shining your Light!
It’s important to be kind to others but sometimes we forget to be kind to ourselves. Treat yourself with a little TLC, Tender Loving Care!
There is a fire, a passion, a story, a song, a dance, a picture, a painting, a child, a career, a deep desire, (in whatever form it takes); that was implanted in your heart before you even came here. Listen carefully and let it speak to you. It is part of the magic of you. It is part of the reason you came here and your soul’s purpose. Fan the flames and feed that Sacred Fire. Let it Burn Brightly so you can reach your full potential, light the way to help others see and share it with the world.
Take time to go into the Silence of your own Being! There is infinite wisdom and guidance whispering your name. Be still & Listen.
Money is just energy, it’s not bad or the root of all evil; it’s the energy of abundance and it can do wonderful things. Be thoughtful about your money and your beliefs about money. Take care of your money; let it flow freely to you; tithe, save and share it wisely and it will take care of you.
From the fire and the ashes the phoenix rises. A symbol of hope, transformation, renewal and rebirth. Rise up from the wounds, the pain, the fire and the ashes in your life. Feel hope, renewal and transform your life so you can fly.
To find yourself sometimes you have to lose yourself. Sometimes you have to strip everything away and take off all your masks. Sometimes you have to expose your deepest, darkest fears and be completely vulnerable. Sometimes you have to be brave enough to give up control and surrender.
Let yourself get lost in Pure Unconditional Love. Let it surround you, embrace you and wash over you. Let it cleanse your soul and heal your heart. Let it remind you of where you came from and who you are. Let Pure Love reset you, renew you and guide you back to yourself.
What does your dream life look like? What does your heart desire? What does your soul crave? Are you living your best life? Be still and Listen to your soul’s whispers. Take one step at a time following your internal guidance system….it knows the way to help you live the dream.
Just be you…all of you…all the time.
Pure Unconditional Love is where you came from; what you are made of; who you are at your core and where you will return. It is the vibration and the frequency of the Creative intelligence that flows through all things, all time and all space. It is the frequency and vibration of your soul. It is your purpose, your mission and your guide. It knows the answers and will lead the way so you can reach your soul’s full expression of itself. Immerse yourself in Pure Unconditional Love. Bathe yourself in this Love, shower others with this Love and color your world with this Love.
Sometimes we build walls to protect us from pain but they can also close us off from experiencing the fullness of Life. Knock down those walls that block you from experiencing all the Good the Universe has to offer.
Our wounds often open us up to see and reveal the Light.
Trust that no matter where you are on your journey that everything is as it should be, everything is unfolding in Divine Order!
We have approximately 60,000 thoughts every day so we can’t control them all. We can however, pay attention and become aware of our thoughts. We can give energy and emotion to whatever we want to. We can give lots of emotion to the things we want to experience. We can consciously place any thoughts we want into your mind anytime. We can repeat thoughts of the things we want more of throughout the day. We can feed our mind information that inspires us. We can read things that life our spirit and our mood. We can do things that increase our positive thoughts and take us higher. When we master our mind we can master our life.
I love this quote from Albert Einstein — ‘There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.’ Pay attention and you will see miracles all around you.
It begins with you; with your energy and the signals you send out to the Universe. Control what you radiate and the Universe will match your frequency by bringing things to you with the same vibration.
We can’t monitor all our thoughts but we can give energy to some more than others. What thoughts do you repeat over and over? What thoughts do you give your energy and emotion to? What are the thoughts that you want to experience more of in your life? What thoughts empower you and take you higher? Give your energy and your emotions to those thoughts and the Universe will bring things that match their vibration.
What lifts your mood, your mind, your heart and your soul? What inspires you to be more today than you were yesterday?
Love the glorious manifestation of the Most High that is You!
I believe in you; in all that you are and in all that you are becoming!
There are no two people on this planet that are exactly alike; we are all different. Each one of us is a unique expression of the Divine; each one a glorious manifestation of the Most High. Everyone is special in their own right; bringing an individualized agenda to experience and a distinctive purpose to fulfil.
The world is full of variety, full of an infinite number of things to discover and enjoy. Discover the magic, beauty and wonder of you! Your job this lifetime is to be yourself; to love and embrace all of you. You have a unique gift to uncover and share with the world. You are worthy of all the magic and miracles the Universe has in store for you.
Have faith, Let go and Let it Be! The Universe has wonderful surprises in store for you!
Throughout the day say “Good flows to me, good flows through me, good flows from me and good multiplies all around me!”
This mental law is the law of vibration working with the law of attraction to bring into our experience the things that match our vibration. Our thoughts and our emotions show us where we are vibrationally. Match your thoughts and your emotions with what you wish to experience and it must come to be. It is the law. Don’t question when just have FAITH, see it as ALREADY done, KNOW with every fiber of your being it is done and it will be!
Open your heart, open your mind and live with arms wide open. It makes it easier to give and to receive!
Be the hero of your own story!
A rose by any other name is still a rose. No name can change who you are at your core; you are a glorious expression of the Divine!
Being creative is good for the mind, body and soul. Creativity helps us learn, grow and thrive. It is part of our soul’s desire to express itself and part of our purpose for being on this journey we call life. Creativity shows up in many forms. Explore different ways that make your heart sing and your creative juices flow. Here are 8 Types of Creative Intelligence as described by Howard Gardner. Try some of these suggestions or create your own.
1. Social or Interpersonal: Engage in discussions and conversations with people you know and people that you don’t know where you exchange ideas and build relationships. 2. Musical: learn to play an instrument, attend concerts, sing/hum alone or with others. · 3. Spatial: Draw, paint, design rooms or websites, make cards, cerate logos, or try mind mapping. 4. Bodily-Kinesthetic: dance, play sports, walk or exercise in any form. 5. Logical-Mathematical: solve problems, balance checkbooks, create schedules or a budget. 6. Intrapersonal: keep a journal, meditate, read alone or study to answer personal questions. 7. Naturalistic: nature nurtures the mind; create a vegetable or flower garden, walk barefoot, go for a walk in the woods, on the beach or photograph nature.
Pay attention to the Grace that flows throughout the Universe.
Today is my birthday; it reminds me to celebrate Love, celebrate Light, and to celebrate all that Life has to offer each of us always. Each day is a gift so celebrate Life today & every day!
When I was a child we had the best water fights when it rained. My siblings and friends would collect water from the rain in buckets and run around the yard laughing and splashing each other. It was so much fun! My children did the same thing when they were young and joy and laughter filled our rainy days. I still love the smell, the warmth, the gentleness and the joyful memory of summer rain! I may not run around having water fights in the rain anymore but sometimes I just hold out my arms and let the rain shower me with its gentle touch. The feeling on my skin brings me joy, lifts my spirit and reminds me of the child within. Try it next time there is a gentle summer rain
You Are Light…let it flow through you in everything you think, do and say!
The sun is shining, the air is warm and the new day brings new possibilities. Delight in the precious gift of this glorious day!
Today is the anniversary of my father’s passing; his physical body is not here but his love is watching over me always. Love is watching over you too!
Every time you celebrate something you raise your vibration. When you raise your vibration you send a signal to the Universe that you are ready to receive higher vibrational things and experiences. There is something to celebrate every day; it can be as simple as checking off something on your to do list, completing a workout, making a call, reaching out to someone, eating a healthy meal, finding a good parking spot, making it through a green light, or just the fact that you are alive. Take time to stop and celebrate everything throughout the day; even the little things and the Universe will be delighted to bring you more things to celebrate.
Today in the United States we celebrate our independence, our freedom. What chains hold you back from expressing your own freedom? Break those chains and set yourself free!
You have within you a reservoir of strength that you haven’t even tapped into. Trust that power and let it take you higher!
One of my favorite quotes is “Whatever you do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Be bold in your commitment to yourself; bold in your thoughts and bold in your actions. Keep moving toward the Light; toward the things that inspire you and bring you higher. Boldness does indeed have genius, power and magic in it!
Read something or do something that inspires you and then share it with others today!
Let your Spirit fly free to express the glory that is you!
Be open to receive! The Universe has sweet surprises in store for you!
I love this quote; Life really is like a camera. Whatever you focus on you get more of so focus on what’s most important. Capture the good times and hold on to those memories, they will bring you joy that will last a lifetime. Develop from the negatives; they can teach you so much about how strong and spectacular you are. If things don’t work out take another shot. Life always gives you second chances, even third. Make the most of this glorious journey we call Life.
The Universe has magic and miracles in store for you!
The truth of who you are is: You are Love, Light, Energy, Joy, Abundance, Creative, Intelligence & Peace! Let that Truth come into fruition!
One of the steps for manifesting what you want that people often forget is letting go. Connect with Source; declare what you want; see it as done so your vibration matches what you want; give thanks for it’s manifestation and let go! Know it will come to be at exactly the right moment. If you question it you delay it’s arrival. Learn to let go with total faith and it will come to be!
Your Love is meant to be given freely; it is meant to light up the whole world!
Gratitude lifts your spirits, raises your vibration and lets the Universe know you are ready to receive more.
There is only one you, one of a kind priceless you! Love & appreciate you!
Today is the first day of summer where I live and it’s going to be a hot one. I am not crazy about too much heat but I love summer! I love how everything has come to life after a long winter’s nap. I love the long days, how bright the sun is and the warmth of the summer nights. I love the sunrises and the sunsets. I love the colors of the flowers in my gardens and the organic vegetables we are growing. I love seeing the bunnies hopping around the yard and the hummingbirds and bees busily making their way through the day. I love how alive I feel and how much energy I get from the summer sun. Let the joy, wonder, light, beauty and glory of summer inspire you and move you into more of who you are meant to be.
There is a common thread of Life, a common desire for Acceptance, a common yearning for Love that runs through us all connecting our souls to one another. We are more alike as human beings than we are different.
Let us learn that we are all brothers and sisters; all connected to each other through the Creative Intelligence that flows through all things. Let us learn to see the Light in each other, the Love in each other and Respect each other. On that day we will rise above the darkness, set all our souls free and the dream will come true.
Sometimes there will be dark days; sometimes it may be difficult to see; sometimes things don’t make sense; sometimes your heart aches and your mind races. When this happens and the days are dark let the darkness pass through you, remember it is only temporary and focus on the Light. The Light will help you move through the darkness easier and faster.
You can do it!!!!
Control your thoughts and trust the Universe to surprise and delight you.
Life is an incredible journey! Keep taking one step at a time and you may find yourself in some amazing places!
Your emotions are like a road map showing you where you are vibrating. When you feel bad you deny the truth of who you really are at your core and you block the good of the Universe from coming into your life. When you feel good you allow the truth of who you are to shine and you allow the good of the Universe to flow through you easily and effortlessly.
Emotions are just energy in motion so pay attention to what you are feeling. Whatever your emotions are remind yourself they are important to let you know where you are vibrating but they are also only temporary. Feel them and let any negative emotions move through you so you can get to other side to let the magic and miracles of the Universe grace your life.
Sometimes it rains but then you get to bask in the glow of the rainbow.
Miracles happen and dreams do come true so hold on to those dreams that make your soul sing!
If you are only focused on your physical being you miss out on the extraordinary presence of your spiritual being. Tap into that part of you that is beyond the physical and you will tap into the Energy of Life Itself. That brilliant part of you that knows all the answers, that guides you along your path, that leads you to where you are meant to be and helps you uncover the greatness that is you.
You have so many layers; many you haven’t discovered yet. That’s okay but begin to recognize the beauty and the depth that is you. If you need a little help just try to see yourself the way those that love you do.
Laughter is the best medicine; it’s good for the body and the soul. Laugh out loud today; a full belly laugh that makes your eyes water and belly hurt! Your mind, body and spirit will thank you!
You are made of Stardust! The Pure, Radiant, Unconditional essence of the Universe flows through you always.
Plant seeds/thoughts of what you wish to experience into your mind and send those thoughts out into the Creative Intelligence that flows through all things. Nurture those seeds/thoughts by pouring positive energy into them, visualizing them as complete, and following any guidance you receive from the Divine knowing within. Keep doing that until they come to be.
Don’t put any restrictions on them; know they will come to be. If you restrict them by thinking they should have already come to be or that they are impossible it’s like stepping on a tiny sapling as it’s head tries to emerge from the soil to reach for the sun and you kill them. Your job is to do the work of nurturing them with positivity and then let go. Let the Creative Intelligence, which is the soil from which all things come into fruition, do it’s work. Nurture them, let go and allow them to grow!
You are always worthy of Love!!! Love is where you came from; Love is who you are and Love is where you will return.
Stop whatever you are doing and take a deep breath; breath into your belly then fill your lungs; hold it for a moment and let it out slowly. As you breathe out let your whole body relax. Repeat 3 times then smile and be present to the delicious moment of now!
There are days when you are on top of the world and everything is going perfect and then there are days when things don’t seem to go as you had hoped. It’s okay. Some days are filled with sunshine and some days are blue. The dark clouds always clear and the sun is always there shining ever so brightly so hold on. The important thing is to love yourself through the storms and the sunshine. Love yourself through it all!
Imagine your life without limitations!
With Pure Love all things are possible!
Don’t get stressed by the little things…focus on the big things, the things that really matter!
The internet is a wonderful tool; it’s full of information but there are some questions the internet can’t answer. Some answers are just for you; they may be hidden deep within but they are there. Be still and go into the silence of your mind through meditation; ask the question and know the answer will come.
Meditation will bring the answers to you. They may come immediately or they may take time. Be patient, be receptive, be consistent and pay attention to the guidance within. You have all those answers, all the secrets, all the guidance, all the wisdom hidden in the depths of your soul. Begin a daily meditation practice. Start with even 5 or 10 minutes a day and increase as you can. Google doesn’t have all the answers for you so Meditate!
Healing is a natural part of Life and your body can preform miracles. You can heal your mind, your body and your life.
No one can dim your Light unless you let them. Don’t let them! The world needs your Light now! Keep sharing your Light with the world!!
Your scars are from the wounds in your past. Those wounds cracked the mask you wore to let the light in so you could learn and grow and shine ever so brightly in the future! Shine on you beautiful, brilliant expression of Life Itself! Shine on!
Gratitude!! Let it heal, nourish and sustain you. Let it unlock the fullness of Life; bring you clarity, bring you peace and help you thrive!
You hold within you the stuff that dreams are made of! Be still, listen to the wisdom that lies within, the whispers of your soul, and let them be your guide.
It’s okay to visit the past but don’t get stuck there. Let it go and move on!
There is only 1 You. There is no-one in the world like you. No one has your gifts, your magic, your unique style. No one has that special song that only you can sing. No one can write your story. No one can dance to the beat of your own drum; only you can do that.
You are a magnificent manifestation of the Most High, a child of Life Itself. You are a pure expression of the Divine. You have something special to share with the world; something that only you can bring. Embrace the distinctive gift that is you and let it make all the difference in your life.
Launch random acts of Love today and every day!!

There are things you do that wake up your soul and make you feel alive; things that stir the passion and fire within. What touches your heart and brings you joy? What moves you every time you do it? What do you get lost in and lose all sense of time when you do it? What excites you and makes you come alive? Do more of those things every day because the world needs more people to wake up and come alive.
Let your light color the world in it’s own distinctive way!
There is strength within that can carry you through anything!
Whatever the question…love is the answer!
Ground yourself into Mother Earth by Imagining energy flowing from the center of the earth up through the bottom of your feet, up your legs then filling your root chakra at the base of your spine, when your root chakra is full let the energy overflow and go back into the earth. Keep the energy flowing freely.
After that imagine Cosmic energy flowing from the Universe into the top of your head through your crown chakra. Imagine the energy flowing down the back of your body to your root chakra then flowing up the front of your body to the top of head, coming out the top and cascading down all around you. Do this grounding and connecting to Source exercise every day. This will keep your energy flowing and help you grow in miraculous ways.
Spring…a time for growth, a time of rebirth, a time for action. Take action today and give birth to even more of the greatness that is you.
The Italians have a saying I don’t always do but I love: “Dolce far niente”. It means “the sweetness of doing nothing”. Take time to savor the sweetness of doing nothing but breathing in the air and the moment.
It starts with belief. Believe in yourself and that the Universe supports you, Believe what you desire is possible. Believe that you are worthy of all the Good the Universe has to offer. Believe then listen to the guidance from deep within which is connected to Source of all that is then take action on that guidance. You can Do it…Have it…Be it!!
No matter what you call the Creative Intelligence that was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, know that It is in you, It flows through you, It is all around you, It supports you and It is Always FOR you!
Believe you are a magnificent manifestation of the Most High! Believe you are Radiant Light, Unconditional Love, Absolute Abundance, Eternal Peace, Creative intelligence, Pure Joy… believe you are Perfect Whole & Complete! You just may have forgotten that. It’s time to remember!
Do one thing today that will make your tomorrow better.
There are many seasons in life, each has its own precious gifts. The innocence and wonder of youth, the discipline and knowledge you gain from being a student, the love and devotion of partnering, the rewards and satisfaction of work, perhaps the unconditional love of parenting, the joy of being a grandparent or the wisdom and peace that comes with aging.
All of the seasons in your life have their own unique beauty. Wherever you are now, whatever season you are in know that each one holds magic just for you. Whether you are experiencing wonder, discipline, devotion, satisfaction, love, joy or wisdom… be present to the gifts each season brings. Flow with the seasons of life and embrace the beauty and the miracle of the season you are in right now!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmothers, godmothers, fur moms, aunts, dads playing both roles and to all that nurture and love young souls unconditionally! May the love you shower on those in your care come back to you tenfold! Being a mom to 4 grown children that I love, admire and respect and now a Gigi to 7 grandchildren I simply adore has been the greatest honor of my life! Thank you for choosing me!
Let Grace, Joy & Love flow from you in all you do! What you project out into the world will come back to you tenfold!
You control your energy; the amount and what kind of energy you vibrate out into the world. At any time you can take a deep breath and shift your energy to a higher frequency. There is a limitless amount of strength and good that you can draw from when you tap into the Creative Energy that surrounds and engulfs us all. Shifting your energy sends a signal to the Universe and the Universe responds by bringing things with a higher vibration to you.
You are continually expanding into a magnificent expression of Life itself. Let the treasures you hold deep within you blossom and grow.
You did not come into this world to stay in your cocoon…. You were meant to fly and soar into the great unknown. Trust your wings and let yourself FLY free!
The Force that is in everything, everyone, everywhere always and forever is right where you are, right here right now! Feel it, Know it, Embrace it!
Flowers reach for the light for a reason; they instinctively know they need light to grow. They don’t worry or stress about it they naturally just reach for it and open up to it as they bloom into an exquisite manifestation of Life.
Let nature be your guide. There is a light within you that is connected directly to God/Divine//Source. Follow the flowers example and reach for that light, open up to the light and let yourself grow and blossom into the beautiful expression of the Divine that is you!
Have faith that everything is working out for your benefit.
Look around you … there is beauty everywhere!
Life often sends us experiences to show us just how strong we are and how powerful we are. No matter what you going through know that there is reservoir of strength you haven’t even tapped into yet. You are stronger and more powerful than you think. You’ve got this!
Sometimes it’s the little things that make such a big difference in our life!
The dreams you hold deep in your soul are meant to come true. Pay attention to the whispers of your soul. Be open to receive the guidance that will lead you to their fulfillment. Walk in the direction of your dreams and they will come to be.
Let go of the things that keep you small and hold you back from expressing your brilliance!
We often build up walls to protect us from pain or harm; sometimes the pain or harm is real and sometimes they are imagined. Some walls are needed temporarily but some need to be knocked down. Some walls limit our potential. Some walls keep us from expanding our comfort zone so we can grow. Some walls block us from experiencing all the Good the Universe has in store for us. Knock down the walls that hold you back.
Examine your beliefs about you and the world. Some of your beliefs built those walls but ask yourself “Do those beliefs empower me or limit me?”. If your beliefs don’t empower you change them to ones that do. Change them to beliefs that strengthen you and move you into more. Beliefs like “Life always supports me” or “I am worthy to receive all the Good the Universe has in store for me” will help knock down the walls that block you.
You may not be able to control all of the people that are in your life but you can always add people that inspire you and nourish your soul.
Whenever you find yourself in a difficult situation ask yourself “How can I learn and grow from this?” then listen for the answer and let it take you higher.
Be willing to embrace your gifts, willing to have faith in the Good of the Universe, willing to expand your comfort zone, willing to be still and listen to the guidance from within, willing to flow with everything this glorious life has in store for you, willing to express more of who you are meant to be, willing to surrender to your soul’s purpose on this journey.
Love can make all the difference in the world. Use your love to lift, inspire, encourage, understand, empower… to touch someone’s heart and mind. You may not ever know the impact you have; you just might be taking someone higher or even saving someone’s life.
Have faith that better and brighter days are coming. The best is yet to be!
You never know what someone is going through so be kind, share a smile or encouraging word as often as you can.
We all have basic human needs; the first 4 are: 1. Certainty/Safety. 2. Variety. 3. Love/Connection. 4. Significance. When those needs are met there are 2 more; Growth & Contribution. We meet these needs in a variety of ways; some ways are empowering and some are disempowering. Look at your own life to see how you can meet your basic needs in an empowering way so you can move into the higher needs of Contribution and Growth.
Spiritual Growth has 4 stages: 1. To Me: Victim Consciousness. When one believes things happen to them. 2. For Me: Manifestor Consciousness. When one works with the Universe to bring things into their lives. 3. Through Me: Channel Consciousness. When one allows the Life Force of the Universe to flow through them. 4. As Me: Being Consciousness. When one has no sense of separation only Oneness with Source. Meditation will help you move through these stages to experience the limitless awareness of Stage 4.
What is your vision for your life when you have reached your full potential? Focus on that; be willing to let it be and the way will be shown.
There is something within you that is waiting to blossom and grow. All you have to do is give it your attention, nurture it and let it grow!
It’s all there, deep inside your soul…all the wisdom, all the ideas, all the answers, all the guidance, all the creativity, all the peace, all the light…everything. You just have to stop, pay attention to the messages that are meant for you and let them guide you. Be still, go within, listen to the magic of your soul and let your Spirit Soar!
Wherever you find yourself right now keep growing.
You are stronger than you know!
Let the spirit of spring with it’s renewal of life inspire you to give birth to new possibilities and new life.
You are like a farmer planting seeds into the Creative Force of the Universe. When a farmer plants pumpkin seeds he will grow pumpkins, he will never grow watermelons from pumpkin seeds. The same is true for you; you will not experience love and abundance if your consistent thoughts are of fear or limitation. Be aware of the the thoughts you give energy to.
Your life is a reflection of the seeds you sow and your thoughts are the seeds. Your thoughts dictate your vibration and your vibration dictates what you experience in your life. When your vibration is in harmony with all the Good of the Universe that good will flow into your life like magic. Plant seeds of love, abundance and peace into the Universal Consciousness, nurture them and let them grow in the garden of your Life!
There’s a kind of magic in the air when the days grow longer, the sun gets warmer, the flowers begin to bloom and the trees burst into color. Breathe into the magic and the grace.
Flow with the seasons of your life!
We are all traveling on a journey to uncover our sacred gifts. Sometimes the path is clear and straight; sometimes it has speed bumps and detours. Sometimes we fall; sometimes we’re not sure of the way but keep going. It’s all in Divine Order and you will arrive. Wherever you are on the journey be gentle with yourself and love yourself completely along the way.
Go into the silence of your own being and let your heart and mind align with your soul. Your soul knows the way and will lead you to peace and clarity.
Every spring the Earth gives birth to new growth, new life. Whatever season you are in, wherever you find yourself let yourself blossom and grow into more of who you are meant to be.
Closing a door can sometimes be difficult but don’t keep trying to open a door that is not meant for you; move on and open the door that is yours.
You have everything you need within you; all the wisdom, all the creativity, all the love, the strength and the magic… it’s all within. Your job is to be still and let that wisdom, the strength and the love guide you. You’re here to let all the magic and creativity flow through you.
You are on a journey to uncover the greatness that is you. You came here to express the magic that is within; to sing your own song; write your own story; to share your gift with the world. It’s already within you just waiting for you to discover it and uncover the greatness that you already are.
May your day be filled with faith, family, friends and Unconditional Love!
Whatever you focus on you get more of so even in the darkest day remember to focus on the positive and focus on the Light. Know that no matter how dark the day is there is Light on the other side.
The Universe is always on your side; it has magic and miracles in store for you when you have faith and let go. Believe in all the Good that Source/God (whatever name you use for the Creative Intelligence that was in the beginning is now and ever shall be) has meant for you. Surrender to the Love & the Light that flows through you; that flows through everything, everyone, everywhere all the time and watch your life unfold in miraculous ways!
In the Christian tradition today is Maundy Thursday; the day that Jesus washed the feet of the Apostles and had the Last Supper. The Washing of the Feet is such a tender humbling way to love another. Let us all remember to love, respect and care for one another always!
The Universe loves you always and supports you all day every day!
Savor those times when you get lost in the perfection of the moment! Whether it’s a sunny afternoon in Rome, a warm hug from a loved one, a hearty laugh with a friend or a peaceful moment of oneness. Savor them all and fall in love with how good it feels to feel good!
It may not always seem like it but everyone has something special to bring to your life. Everyone is a Gift bringing treasures untold; everyone is an Angel sent from Divine Love; everyone is Light made in the image and likeness of the Divine/Source/God.
Find the lessons and treasures of wisdom every Gift brings. Feel the Love that is within every Angel you encounter. Focus on the illumination that every unique expression of the Light brings into your world. When you find these things you will grow in awareness of your own worth and you will find heaven on earth.
Keep expanding, keep stretching, keep growing and keep reaching for the stars.
Pay attention to the whispers of the Universe; they might just change your whole world!
It’s a new day and a new opportunity is at hand. Let go of the past and begin this glorious new day with an open heart, an open mind and an open spirit. Let the Love within flow through you so you can feel which direction you should go in. Let the wisdom within show you which door is meant for you. Let the Light within shine through you and guide you on your next great adventure.
Some days are sunny and bright and everything is going great and some days are just blue. It’s okay! Love yourself through the sadness. The sun will shine again and all will be well!
You are always on a journey of becoming more of the brilliant expression of the Divine you are meant to be. Love yourself along the way!
Come to know and embrace the Truth of who you are!
You never know what the Universe has in store for you. Some things that seem to be a disadvantage can actually be just what you need to take you to a higher level. Some things that you didn’t expect or even want can be blessings in disguise. Look for the good in all situations. Look for the hidden blessings in the surprises.
When you look for the good in things you will find it. When you find the blessings in disguise you will take your life to a higher place. Keep an open mind and let the blessings and unexpected good the Universe sends you move you into more of who you are meant to be.
My dog is my angel sometimes, my grandchildren are my angels sometimes, my kids are my angels and sometimes a stranger can be an angel bringing gifts of love and unexpected moments of God’s Grace!
Today is the first day of spring here and after a long winter it is a most welcome day! It represents the beginning of new growth, new life and longer days filled with the warmth of the sun. Change can be be beautiful and exactly what we need sometimes. What beautiful change will you make today?
Instead of a GPS (Global Positioning System) that your car has you have an IGS (Internal Guidance System) and your soul, your inner wisdom, knows the way. You just have to be still and go into the silence so you can hear the directions. Look at where you are and decide where you want to go and your IGS will lead you to your destination.
Clarity is power! The Universe helps you when you’re not clear about what you want by sometimes sending you things you don’t want to help you gain clarity. Get clear about what you want and the Universe is delighted to bring it to you.
You are becoming more and more of the Love that you are at your core. Love yourself in every stage of your growth and unfoldment.
Life often takes us in many different directions; how do you keep everything in balance? Meditation can help keep you in balance so you can handle all the distractions and the different directions life takes you.
In a world that is filled with uncertainty one thing is certain… being kind and respecting one another can make a big difference.
The Universe is eavesdropping on you, feeling your vibration then bringing the things that match your vibration to you.
Check out my latest article “Did you Ever Wish a Genie Could Magically Grant Your Innermost Desires” in the Law of Attraction Magazine. Click the link below:
What do you love to do? What brings you joy and makes your heart happy? What calls to your spirit and lets your soul sing? What wakes you up and makes you come alive? Do more of those things because that’s what you are made for.
There is wonder and beauty all around you. Take time today to appreciate the the wonderful world we live in.
Truth has an energy as does a lie; truth will set you free and lies hold you back in many ways. Live in Truth and Honesty.
Don’t be afraid to ask…the answer might just be yes!
It is done unto you as you believe so believe with all your heart and soul. It is done for you; you don’t coerce the Universe you allow it to move through you. You don’t create the Power; you let the Power of the Universe flow through you. You don’t force things to happen you surrender to the magic the Divine has in store for you.
You are always connected to Source; there is no separation, only Oneness. You are always using the laws of the Universe whether you are aware of it or not. You can’t control the Universe; you can only control your vibration and your ability to accept all the gifts that Spirit has for you. Believe, allow, accept, surrender, and let the Universe surprise and delight you!
Let Love, Light, Faith, Purpose, Power, and Grace begin each new day!
Seek the truth and live with Love!!
No matter what age you are; no matter where you are now; no matter what has gone on before in your life; you can start today. Start something new now; something that inspires you; something that makes your heart happy and something that expresses more of who you are meant to be.
The Universe supports your dreams. Let those dreams lead the way and let your heart sing out loud!
Live in the Energy of Love wherever you are. Let Love fill you up , sustain you and radiate from you always.
You are the gift, you are the magic, you are priceless!!!
It begins with you… your thoughts, your beliefs, your words, and your actions are all responsible for what your life looks like. If you want to experience more or if you want to experience something different from what you currently experiencing you have to begin with you. Do your thoughts, beliefs, words and actions take you in the direction of your dreams or do they move you away from them.
Take an honest look at yourself. What are your dominant thoughts….do you think you are worthy of all the Good the Universe has in store for you? What are your beliefs about the Universe…do things happen to you or for you? What words do you use consistently…do they empower you or limit you? What actions do you take regularly…do you take steps that take you in the direction of your dreams? Control your dominant thoughts, beliefs, words and actions and you will control what you experience in life.
There are magic moments of heaven awaiting your recognition every day. Find love and you will find heaven wrapped up in those precious moments.
Let Love be the answer and the reason for everything you do today.
There are angels, light beings and the love of your ancestors watching over you always showering you with Light. You are never alone; you are always surrounded by the Love & Light of the Divine/Source/God, whatever name you use to express the Creative Intelligence that was in the beginning is now and ever shall be. Feel it, know it, and embrace it always.
Lone one another today and every day!
You are loved just as you are right here, right now.
Love adds a beautiful color and dimension to your life.
Unconditional Love has a power and a frequency like no other. It is the most powerful force in the world. It is unlimited and free to all; the only cost is an open heart. It moves throughout the Universe touching, creating, healing, and strengthening everything, everyone, everywhere, all the time.
When you live in the vibration of Unconditional Love you live in the energy of magic and miracles; doors open and synchronicity happens regularly. It brings good and more good to you. It guides you and lets you know exactly what to do. Open your heart and be in the vibration of Unconditional Love.
Love, pure love gives of itself. It has no expectations; it gives freely and completely.
Love will take you higher but you must open your heart, which can take practice. Stop, breathe into your heart throughout the day and let love bring you extraordinary blessings!
Sometimes Love doesn’t seem to be working but if you increase the dosage of pure unconditional love you just might be surprised. You just might find out how powerful and magical Unconditional Love truly is. Let it heal, strengthen you and guide you in everything you think, do & say.
You cannot celebrate Love too much so celebrate it in you and in everyone, everything, every day!
Love is your purpose; love is your plan; love is your action; love is your outcome; and love is your reward.
You can never go wrong when you answer every question with Love.
I love that we have a day to celebrate LOVE although I celebrate LOVE every day I devote the month of February to daily inspirations about Love. Not the romantic love even though that is wonderful; this month is devoted to pure Unconditional Love. Love that comes from the Source of all things, the Source that I call God.
What is Pure Unconditional Love anyway? Loving unconditionally is giving and expecting nothing in return. It is accepting someone just as they are, and appreciating their unique gifts. It is loving without limitations or conditions. It is showing compassion and wanting only the best for people. Practice Pure Unconditional Love not just on Valentine’s Day but every day.
I love that we have a day to celebrate LOVE! I celebrate LOVE every day but in February it’s multiplied! When you see and feel Love you find heaven on earth! May you see and feel Love all around you today; may you find heaven right where you are! Happy Valentine’s Day!
You are a precious gift of Love and I love you!!
Breathe it in and let it out in all you do!
Go into the stillness of your own being and let Unconditional Love flow freely from your heart out into the world.
Fall in love with you and love will show up in all your relationships.
You, me, our country, and our whole world all need Love Sweet Love right here, right NOW!
Love is the most powerful force there is. Love heals wounds; Love inspires greatness; Love creates magic; Love teaches compassion; Love motivates people to be more of who they are meant to be. Love soothes the weary and Love strengthens your being. Love comforts the broken hearted and Love accepts ALL. Love touches the hearts of others and expresses the gifts from your heart & Soul.
Love is where you came from, Love is who you are, Love is why you’re here and Love is where you will return. Love is your Soul purpose. Love flows freely from the Divine through you out into the world. Love is the answer and Love is the way, Love is your true power!
Love is the reason and Love is the way!
Let Love, Pure Love flow unconditionally in everything you do.
Pure Love comes from the deepest part of your being, the part that is connected to the Source of Life Itself. Pure Love is selfless; it expresses itself as compassion, kindness, acceptance and generosity. Make sure that you connect to and express Pure Love every day.
Sometimes those little things that touch your soul and fill you with wonder disappear quickly; so hold on to those moments that bring you feelings of awe and magic as much as you can. Let them anchor in your being and fill you with the Light of Love. They really are the big things!
Love…unconditional, pure, sacred love; love that gives of itself and requires nothing…is how we came to be, is who we all are and why we are all here.
Plant yourself firmly into the Unconditional Love that comes from the everlasting Source of the Divine and let Love grow!
You are enough just as you are right here, right now!! Love yourself right where you are! Love all of you; the parts that you shine for all the world to see, the parts that you hide in the darkness and everything in between. Love the wounded child within and the glorious soul that is expressing itself through you. Love it all without judgement, love it all unconditionally.
Everything that you have ever said or done in your life was meant to be. Meant to get you through the good times and the more challenging times. Meant to protect you, express you and eventually help you grow into even more of who you are here to be. Give thanks for it all and love it all then you can truly let your brilliance shine. You are Enough and you are worthy of all the Love & Light the Universe has in store for you.
It’s darkest before the dawn; the dark rain clouds can bring the bright beautiful rainbow; the seed lives in darkness before it bursts through the soil to reach for the light of the sun; every child lives in the darkness of the womb before it comes into the light of day. The darkness in your life will give birth to your Light. Look for those glimpses of that brilliant light, let it lift you up and shine through you!
The heart speaks only of pure love; it’s the mind that plays games with it. Stop the mind games and love with your pure heart.
We don’t know what other people have been through but we do know that everyone needs love. You cannot truly love someone if you judge them for love does not judge. Let any judgements go and let love flow through you out into the world.
Sometimes the little things can bring us delightful, magic moments. Take time today to find those delightful moments of magic in the little things.
There is a reservoir of strength deep within you; it is unlimited as it comes from the Source of all that is. Know it is there and tap into it when you are being tested. You are stronger than you know!!
Your Soul, your inner Light, the deepest part of you knows the way; listen carefully an let that wisdom and light within guide you.
The Law of Attraction is something we can’t control, just like the tides, the sunrise and sunset and gravity. It is another Law of the Universe that works the same way for everyone. Everything is made up of Energy, including you and me. The Law of Attraction is like a magnet bringing things that have the same energy to each other. It is a secondary law to the Law of Vibration, which you can control.
The Law of Attraction responds to where your Energy is Vibrationally. Where your energy is vibrationally radiates out into the Universe and the Universe responds through the Law of Attraction by bringing that to you. You have to become internally that which you wish to receive for it to show up. Feed your mind positive things, ask empowering questions, give thanks for all you have right now and learn and grow from everything. Meditation, prayer, and visioning are powerful tools that can help you shift your vibration to Be & Radiate what you wish to experience.
Have complete faith and know with every fiber of your being that the Universe supports your soul’s desires. Let yourself be guided from the Light within and miracles will happen.
It’s a new day in a new year, could it be time for a new you, a new way of looking at things? Open your eyes to see all the amazing opportunities that surround you.
We make many decisions every day that effect us now and in our future. What decision can you make today that will take your life higher? What decision can you make that will make your future brighter? What decision can you make that will help you be brave enough to Be the Light!
Let peace begin within your own heart and expand out into the world!
Today we welcome a new President, a new Vice President, a new view, a new commitment to compassion, equality and unity, a new country and a new world for us all! Let it be so!
Let us treat each other with Understanding and Compassion. Let us shower each other and our world with God’s Unconditional Love!
Though there is darkness in our world now we can’t focus on the darkness or the negative people or events that exist; we must focus on bringing Light to the darkness. Darkness and negativity will only bring more darkness and more negative experiences. Fill your mind with Light and let it flow from you out into the world.
Hate cannot drive out hate and fear only Love can do that. Even if you don’t agree with what people think, do or say go within your own heart and send them Love. Tap on your heart as you breathe into your heart and find the Love that resides there. Let that Love that comes from Divine and is everlasting flow to you, through you and from you.
It may not always seem like it but everyone and everything is a gift providing you an opportunity to be more of the glorious expression of the Divine you are meant to be.
See it in your mind’s eye, knowing your mind is connected to the One Mind and it will come to be!
Clarity is Power! If you aren’t clear you send confusing signals to the Universe and conflicting things come to you. The Universe may send you things you don’t want to help you make up your mind as to what you really do want. Listen to the still small voice within, get clear on what you want and the Universe is delighted to send it to you.
We are entering a new age; giving birth to a more compassionate world. Sometimes giving birth is painful but the rewards are so worth it. We’re all on this journey together and we can create a more loving planet for everyone. Hold on to the thought of a kinder, more caring world!
What kind of story will you write?
It may not always seem like it but hold on everything is going to be alright!
You are worthy of every good the Universe has in store for you.
Each one of us is a conscious manifestation of Life itself. Whether you call it God, Source, Creative Intelligence, Divine, Spirit or any other name doesn’t matter. That same Energy that was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be flows through our being and flows through everything, everyone, every where all the time. It is right where you are. There is no separation, only Oneness.
We all live, breath and have our being in God/Source. Being aware of your Oneness to this Creative Intelligence and knowing how the laws of the Universe work will make all the difference in what you experience. Everything comes from the Source. You are always co-creating with Source. Your energy, and your thoughts have a direct effect on your experience. They move from you to the Divine and into manifestation. Be mindful of your thoughts and your energy for what you put out into the Universe will come back to you.
Let the Light, Love, Creativity & Song of your Soul fly into full expression!
Take a leap of faith, take that first step and Just Begin!
Understanding the laws of the Universe will help you understand where you are and what you are experiencing in your life. Your thinking leads to your emotions and actions which lead to what you experience. You have approximately 60,000 thoughts a day and you can’t control them all but you can take control of your thoughts by feeding your mind positive empowering thoughts every day. Start today to shift your thoughts and you will change the trajectory of you life, taking you to new places and bringing you new experiences.
Forgiveness is the 1st step and Gratitude is the 2nd step in taking your life to the next level. Gratitude changes the energy you have from the events that brought you pain into wisdom and appreciation for the gifts they brought. Gratitude for the good in your life tells the Universe you are ready for more. Anytime you fall into negative thought patterns remember the things you are grateful for and it will shift your energy and take you higher.
Forgiveness is one of the first steps to experiencing more. Holding onto anger holds you back from more. Think of everything and everyone, including you, that you need to forgive, find the lesson, forgive and let go of any feelings that do not take you to a higher place.
May your year be filled with smiles, comfort, rainbows, laughter, hugs, sunsets, friendships, beauty, faith, confidence, patience, courage & most of all LOVE!
2020 was an unprecedented year. For some it was difficult, for some painful, for some it was reflective, for some quiet, for some it was a chance to reprioritize their life, for some it was an opportunity to learn and for some it was a season to grow. Whatever 2020 was for you take to time to reflect on the year, let go of any negativity and get ready to move into more.
To thrive you must let go of anything that holds you back. Take some paper and write down all the things you thought and felt about the year. Use stream of consciousness and write without worrying about spelling or punctuation just write whatever comes to you. Give yourself plenty of time and get it all out. When you are done don’t reread it, just stop, take a deep breath then safely burn it or rip it up and throw it away. Let it go and give thanks for today is a new day in a new year with infinite possibilities. Let’s thrive and make it extraordinary!
And let it begin with you. Let Peace begin within your own heart then let it spread throughout your home, your family and then let it flow out into the world. Surround the world with the Light of Eternal Peace!
A new opportunity is at hand to let your Spirit soar. A new beginning awaits your first step. New ideas whisper to your soul. Be still, listen carefully and let your life be guided. The best is yet to be!
It’s here! Finally! We made it through 2020…together! It’s gone and now we welcome 2021 with open arms! May this New Year keep you safe and healthy and may it bring you new opportunities filled with endless possibilities! May it shower you with Love & Light, may it bring you abundant blessings and may all your dreams come true!
The things that wake you up and make you come alive are your soul’s gift to the world. Take time to do those things every day.
This has been an unbelievable year! It has given us an opportunity to go into the silence and really evaluate our lives, to re-prioritize what is most important. It’s also given us an opportunity to appreciate the simple gifts life brings us. Take time this week to really connect with all you have learned this year and with the magic of your life before we turn the page and greet the New Year.
May peace fill your heart; may peace ease your mind; and may peace be ever present in our world today and every day.
Connect with the Light. Surround yourself with the Light. Be the Light. Shine the Light wherever you go!
No matter where you are in the world may this Christmas bring you abundant blessings of love, joy and peace!
Take time today to think about the magic of what this night means. Just imagine: Having traveled a long hard journey to a faraway land, a land of unrest; a cold night falls upon the earth and a bright star lights the sky. A young couple alone faces an uncertain future but hold on to their faith. No hospital or room to give birth in so a simple stable must suffice. At last a precious child comes into the world and rests in his mother’s arms, his earthly father lays him in a manger. Shepherds and Kings falling to their knees welcome him with wonder and awe. Despite these humble beginnings this glorious child brings hope for the world. Hope that Love will conquer, Hope that Light will strengthen and Hope that Peace will prevail. May you be filled with the same Love, Light, Peace & Wonder that Jesus brought to us so many years ago.
In this unprecedented season of giving we have been given the opportunity to really think about the gifts we give. 2020 has given us tremendous pain but it also has given us the gift of stopping, thinking and reevaluating what is most important in our lives. What is the greatest gift you can give your family, your friends or even strangers?
The Universe is on your side, it has glorious gifts in store for you. Surrender to the Power of the Universe and let it surprise & delight you!
Be still, close your eyes and let the magic within surprise & delight you!
It is done unto you as you believe so believe with every atom of your being, every cell in your body and with every beat of your heart!
Tap into the reservoir of love and joy that reside deep in your heart and let them lead you into a graceful dance with the Universe. Let your heart rejoice, your soul sing and your spirit fly free!
Today is the anniversary of my mom’s passing. Although I miss her every day I feel her love watching over me. She showers me with love and sends me sweet reminders that we are always connected. Know that love is watching over you too…Always!
Hope you fee love today and help someone else feel love today. Love is who you are today and every day!
Where is the love? Let it be with you!
Some days it is hard to get up, get up anyway.
Some days it’s hard to move your body, move anyway.
Some days it’s hard to breathe, breathe deeply anyway.
Some days it’s hard to push yourself, push anyway.
Some days you just have to force yourself to go through the motions.
It’s okay, tomorrow is a new day and things will get easier.
Keep getting up, keep moving, keep breathing deeply, keep pushing, keep going through the motions and it will get better.
The way to get through whatever difficulty
you are experiencing right now is to go through it
one step at a time, one day at a time.
Keep moving and you will come into the light!
Life is meant for movement…keep moving, keep taking action in the direction of your soul’s desire!
The magic is in YOU! It always has been and it always will be!
Know it is done, state with certainty, accept completely, announce to the Universe, it is already done. So it is!
Win or Lose never give up…keep playing, keep moving , keep growing! You’ve got this!
If you want to make changes in your life, if you want to create the life of your dreams you must know your why. Why do you want to do what you want to do? Why do you want to be the person you long to be? Why do you want to have the things you want?
Why do you want to change your life? Without a compelling why people tend to stay stuck in their old ways. What will move you to take massive action? What will keep you moving in the direction of your dreams no matter what happens to you or no matter what happens all around you? Find your why and you will find your dreams coming true!
Become a life long learner and you’ll become a life long earner.
Be still and listen to the wisdom from within.
The world needs more love, especially now! May your thoughts, your words and your actions come from a place of Love: the Unconditional Love that comes from the unlimited Source of Love that is the Divine. Fill your being with this Love and let if flow to you, to one another and to our world.
Every day gives us a new chance to live our life to the fullest. What will you do today?
Those inner most thoughts and desires that are deep inside your being are whispers from your soul to point you in the direction of your destiny. Be still, listen carefully and let them lead you.
Let that little flame set your soul on fire!
We often are so busy taking care of our family, our home, our jobs, our things, etc that we forget about taking care of ourselves. Sometimes we feel guilty or selfish about taking care of ourselves but we must take care of ourselves if we want reach our full potential.
We must take care of our needs and fill ourselves up spiritually and emotionally. When we are full emotionally and spiritually we can grow into the all that we are meant to be. When we take care of ourselves we have more to give to the people and things we take care of. Make sure you take the time to take care of yourself today!
Let go of the things that weigh you down and hold you back from everything your soul has to express and watch yourself FLY!
When we doubt we don’t take action, when we fail we are given the opportunity to learn something valuable and try again. Believe and take action.
Connect to Source and let life flow through you.
Happy Thanksgiving! As we adjust and reinvent how we celebrate this special day, which seems to be the theme of the year, let us give thanks for all the blessings life can bring. I’m grateful for you!
We may not know all the answers or all the reasons for everything that happens now but trust and appreciate there are mysteries of life that will all make sense some day. Everything is in Divine Order.
Take a close look at what already is and give thanks!
Positive Psychology is the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive. There are 24 character strengths that Martin Seligman from the University of Pennsylvania along with Christopher Peterson, 2 of the founders of Positive Psychology, identified.
Of all the character strengths Gratitude is the one that will bring about the most happiness and well-being. There are many ways to be grateful so develop a practice of Gratitude that works for you. Begin a gratitude journal; every night think of three things that went well that day; email, text or write people and let them know you appreciate them are just a few. If you want to thrive practice Gratitude!
What gift can you give that will bring joy to another or enhance their life?
The Universe is FOR you! Let it surprise and delight you!
Gratitude is good for your soul, good for your heart and good for your mind. It reminds you of the blessings that already exist in your life warming your heart. It opens your mind to bring in new ideas and new experiences. It allows your soul to express even more of itself. Give thanks today and every day for all that you have and all that you are.
The Universe loves gratitude. When you are grateful for all you have the Universe aligns with your energy of gratitude and brings more for you to be grateful for.
Yes you are… just as you are, right here, right now!
When you appreciate what you have you lift your spirit and raise your vibration which brings more to be grateful for into your life.
Your beliefs play a very important part in what you experience in life. They dictate your feelings, emotions and your actions which dictate your vibration or energy which dictates what you bring into your life through the law of attraction. Do you know where your beliefs came from? Some probably came from your parents even your grandparents. And some, you may not even know where they came from.
Examine your beliefs, those beliefs that you hold with conviction. Examine where they came from, examine how they resonate within you now. Do they serve your highest good? Do they serve humanity, society, the truth? If they don’t embrace the beliefs that do with conviction and watch your whole world change.
Whether it’s the big things or the little things give thanks.
Begin each day with the Light of Love, the Faith of a mustard seed, your soul’s Purpose, the Power from within and with the Grace of God.
Gratitude is the one thing you can never over do. It is wine for the soul and food for the heart; go on drink up, get drunk, eat up and fill up your being with the sweetness of Gratitude. Give thanks for all the gifts in your life every day!
Expand your comfort zone and your confidence by doing something that scares you today!
Let the love, joy, wisdom, creativity, integrity & light rise up from within the debts of you soul.
Memories hold a special place in our heart. Some may be wonderful, some not so much. Whatever memory you visit remember the joy or lesson then move on.
Whether you want to experience more love, more abundance, more peace, more understanding, more joy, more of anything, it begins with you. If you want more love be more loving to others. If you want to receive more abundance give more to people. If you want to experience more peace in your world be centered and peaceful yourself. If you want more understanding have an open mind and try to understand others. If you want more joy bring joy to others.
It is a reciprocal Universe; you get out of it what you put into it. You bring to you the things that you put out into the Creative Consciousness, everything you put out into the world. Begin with your relationship with you and your connection to the Source of All That Is. Move from that place of oneness and everything your soul desires, everything you are here to express and experience will come to be!
Go outside and feel the energy of Nature, let it surround you and bring you to a place of Oneness.
It may not always seem like it but everything is in Divine Order. Trust the process!
Sometimes we get caught up in things that we can’t control and we miss the golden opportunities to savor the magic that is all around us. Take time today to savor the simple things that make life worth living!
We are all moving into more of who we are meant to be.
Hard to do some times but have faith and let go.
There is so much fear in the world today. For centuries people have used fear to control, manipulate and intimidate others but a new era is upon us. Don’t let fear be your guide anymore. Fear is a powerful force but LOVE is the most powerful force and it can conquer your fear. Put your hand on your heart and breathe, let the Love and the Light within guide you. Let Love win today and every day!
There may be times when you have been in pain, times when your heart has been hurt, times when you have been disappointed, wronged or let down, times when things didn’t go the way you expected. It can happen to anyone at any time. It can surprise you and catch you off guard.
You can’t control people or circumstances. You can’t control anything anyone else says or does; you can only control how you respond to those unexpected experiences. Take a deep breath, center in Divine Light, learn the lesson and let go. Let go of any pain, sorrow or disappointment. Let go of anything that keeps you from expressing the greatness that is you.
A new day, a new month, a new opportunity to create something spectacular!
There certainly have been some twists and turns in the road this year but we have been given an opportunity to reevaluate our lives and move into something that is absolutely perfect. The best is yet to be!
The Universe/God/Source whatever name you use is always For you. Always supporting you, always listening to you, always assisting you, and always moving you into more. The Creative Intelligence that was in the beginning is now and ever shall be is always holding you in the Arms of Love!
We are all on this journey together, let us respect one another, be kind one another and help each other along the way!
Often people try to force things to happen but when we relax into what the Universe has in store for us magnificent experiences flow to us, through us and from us.
Life is full of magic and miracles. Trust the Universe to bring everything that you need to you.
Some people think things are happening to them. If you’ve ever said or heard someone say “Why does this keep happening to me” it is a misconception. It perpetuates victimhood and you are not a victim. You are a powerful co-creator with the Divine traveling along this magical path of life.
Things don’t happen to you they happen FOR you. Everything is meant to help you experience something, help you learn something, help you share something or help you grow. There is a reason for everything even if you don’t realize it at the time. Everything is happening to bring you into more of who you are at your core which is love, light, abundance, joy, peace, creative, intelligent and powerful!
You are exactly where you’re supposed to be!
