Thought of the Day
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.
Some days are blue and that’s okay. Be gentle with yourself, be kind to yourself and love yourself through the good days and the blue days. You are worthy of Love always!
Affirmation: I love myself through the good days and the blue days!
In honor of Bruce Springsteen’s birthday today I wanted to share this quote from him.

Affirmation: I am a creator of and a witness to Love on Earth!!
You have within you a depth of strength that you may not even have tapped into yet. See those tests that life often sends you as an opportunity to see your strength.

I am are powerful words and what you say that follows them can make all the difference in the world in what you experience in life. How do you complete that sentence? Who do you think you are?
I know that you are a glorious manifestation of the Most High made in the image and likeness of the Divine which means you are Pure Love, Radiant Light, Eternal Peace, Absolute Abundance, Pure Joy. You are creativity, wisdom, strength, grace and you are magic. You are perfect, whole and complete. What I know doesn’t matter though, what do you know?
Speak the words “I am” followed by the truth of who you are at your core to yourself every day. Look in the mirror, look deep into your eyes and see the truth that is sometimes hidden behind the pain that life can bring. Say the words with love and acceptance and watch your whole world change to reflect that.
Affirmation: I am Pure Love, Radiant Light, Absolute Abundance, Pure Joy and Eternal Peace! I am creativity, wisdom, strength, grace and magic! I am perfect, whole and complete.
Today is my wedding anniversary and this is my favorite picture from that incredibly magical day. I love this quote too as it is so true. “The most beautiful words of love are spoken in the silence of a look.” Sometimes love needs no words, a simple look is all it takes.
Look with the eyes of love today. See into the heart and soul of another; love is there patiently waiting to be recognized and expressed. Magic happens when we see with the eyes of Pure, Unconditional Love.
Affirmation: I see with the eyes of Pure, Unconditional Love.

I see you love! I see you in my husband’s devotion, in my parents dedication, in my children’s eyes, in my grandchildren’s smiles. I see you in my extended family, in my friends, in the random acts of kindness that grace each day and in me. I see you Love, I am you!
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 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.

There are some things you can control in your life and there are some things you cannot. Knowing the difference and letting go of the things you can’t control will make all the difference in what you experience in life.
Too often people focus on the things that are out of their control which can cause worry, fear, anxiety and unnecessary stress. You can’t control others; what they think, do or say. You can’t control what happens around you or what has happened in the past.
You can control your thoughts and actions; how you speak to yourself; what you focus on and give energy to; how you respond to challenges and the meaning you give to everything in your life. You can control your goals and how you spend your free time and you can control the boundaries you set for yourself.
Let go of the things that are out of your control and focus your attention and your energy on the things you can control and watch your whole world change for the better.
Affirmation: I focus on the things I can control and let of the things I can’t control.
I love to dance, to sing, to write, to read, to be at the beach… What are the things that you can do to make your heart happy? What lifts your spirit and moves you? Find the things that bring you joy and bring them into your life every day.
Your job this lifetime is to know yourself and all your infinite potential. You are an expression of the Divine, a manifestation of the Most High and a fractal of God.
There is infinite potential and endless possibilities for each and every one of us. There are opportunities to know who you are at your core with every experience you encounter.
There is something that you are meant to explore, experience and to express to yourself and to others. Bring that special something to life as you grow and reach your full potential.
Affirmation: I know myself and all my infinite potential.
If you light a lamp for someone else it will also brighten your path. You light the way!
Affirmation: as I walk along life’s journey I light the way.
There is a light within you that shines as bright as the sun, let it shine!
Keep going, keep growing!!
Whatever you are going through now Keep going, keep growing! Nothing lasts forever.
The sun comes out and dries up the rain, the clouds disappear to reveal a brilliant blue sky and even a snow storm leaves a winter wonderland in its path.

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 your Good.
Affirmation: Life always supports me!
We live in a world of endless possibilities! Every day ask yourself “what else is possible for me today?”
Take one step at a time, each step gives you new insights and takes you closer to your goals. You’ve got this!!
Gratitude changes everything!
Let’s lift each other up and help us all win!!!
Gratitude feeds your heart and your soul. It supports your growth and helps you heal. Make sure you get your daily dose of it!
I am babysitting 3 of my grandchildren for a few days and they always bring me joy, make me laugh and remind me of what is most important in life.
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 sailing through 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.
Affirmation: I let Life inspire me!

There really is magic in the morning as I sit on my deck and listen to a symphony of bird calls, watch them splashing in their birdbath, feel the fluttering of hummingbirds as they zoom from flowers to feeders, admire a baby bunny hopping through the garden and watch butterflies gracefully float among the brilliant colors of the flowers. It truly is a beautiful morning! Have a glorious day everyone.
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
Affirmation: I let the child within feel the joy of each summer rain.
In a world full of challenges, changes and uncertainty try a little kindness, it can make all the difference in the world to someone.
Energy flows through everything and everyone. You are made of energy and you have 7 major energy centers called Chakras. The word chakra comes from Sanskrit meaning “wheel”. They are an ancient, complex, energy system originating in India. They were first mentioned in the Vedas dating back to 1500 to 1000 BC.
When your chakras are aligned and open energy flows freely though your body helping you maintain health in your mind, body and spirit. When the chakras are blocked energy cannot flow freely and this can sometimes lead to dis-ease within the physical body. Each chakra has a specific energy, element, color and mantra.
The first chakra is your Root Chakra (or Muladhara) which is located at the base of your spine. This chakra represents the feeling of being grounded and connected to Mother Earth. The color is red, the element is Earth and the mantra is LAAM. If it is blocked one can feel unstable or threatened.
The second is your Sacral Chakra (Swadhisthana) is located approximately 2″ below your belly button. It represents our emotions, abundance, creativity and sexuality. The color is orange, the element is water and the mantra is VAAM. If it is blocked one may have problems with organs, lower back pain or feel a lack of control.
The third is Continue
Appreciate you, love you and celebrate you!
I had a weekend that was nonstop so this morning I had a tough time getting up. I forced myself to get up and as I looked around I saw the beautiful flowers from my garden, the bluebirds flying in and out of their house in my back yard, a hummingbird flying by to take a sip and say hi, a red cardinal in the birdbath taking a dip and all at once I felt my heart open and my soul come alive.
Sometimes it can be difficult to get up and get motivated so find the things that make your heart happy; the things that wake you up and make you come alive. We all have them; those little things that touch this place inside us and inspire us; simple things we find every day when we take the time to stop and look around.
Find the things that touch you and surround yourself with them. Bring them into your world and make them easy to find so when you have those mornings where it’s hard to get up you just have to reach for them and let them inspire you.
Affirmation: I surround myself with things that inspire me and make me come alive.
Be willing to embrace your gifts, willing to have faith in the Good of the Universe, willing to open your heart and live from love, 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.

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.

“What’s more powerful than love? Nothing!
Never forget the purpose of relationships is to magnify human emotion. Remember Lesson #1: It’s not your partner, it’s YOU. Take 100% responsibility today. It’s not just who you choose to be with, it’s who YOU choose TO BE in your relationships that counts! Master your meaning and show up in a beautiful state and see what happens.” Tony Robbins
Sometimes we look at others when a relationship is not going well, we see their faults and tend to blame them but it’s important to look at yourself. What are you bringing to the relationship? How are you showing up? What kind of partner are you being?
Relationships provide incredible opportunities to look at ourselves and help us grow.
We are reflections for each other and we often see in others what we don’t want to see in ourselves. What do you see in your partner? Is it something that exists in you as well? Be honest with yourself and challenge the meanings you give to everything you experience in the relationship.
Nothing has meaning except the meaning we give it, we are making it all up. Sometimes we make it up due to what others or society says. Sometimes we make it up due to our old wounds. Any time someone pushes our buttons we are given an opportunity to heal the wound that created that button and grow.
Relationships magnify human emotion and in a good relationship we each become better versions of ourselves. They magnify what is going on in our own being. The more you love yourself, the more you show up in a beautiful, loving state the more your relationship will reflect that and thrive.
Affirmation: I show up in a loving state and my relationships reflects that.
Don’t ever take those beautiful souls that support you and want you to shine for granted. Let them be the ones that play a starring role in your life. Give them your Light, your Energy, your Gratitude, your Time and your Support. Love them hard every day with all that you are!

Love is the most powerful force in the Universe. It heals, it nourishes, it nurtures, it expands, it comforts, it inspires, it cultivates, it creates, it educates, it guides, it brings joy, it dispels the darkness and it lights the way.
Love is contagious, as you give it to others it increases in them. It spreads to everyone that you touch and everyone that they touch. The more you have the more you want to share.
Love comes from the Divine so it is unlimited and never ending. You will always have more than enough and you can never run out. The more you give the more it increases. It increases in your life and in the world. Catch it today!
Affirmation: Love is contagious, I spread it everywhere I go.

There are some people that just light you up when you see them. They make you smile and make your heart happy. They encourage you, believe in you and pull the magic out of you so that anything seems possible.
On the other hand some people can try to suck the energy out of you and try to drive you crazy. They may not mean to, they are probably wounded and feel empty inside. Some people just don’t have anything to give. You may not be able to avoid these people but limit your exposure to them.
Spend as much time as you can with the people that love themselves, that have more than enough to share and believe in you. Stick with the people that Light you up and pull the Magic out of you.
Affirmation: I stick with people that pull the Magic out of me.

You never know what another is going through; you can make such a difference just by making someone feel special.
You are a unique expression of the Divine; a precious manifestation of the Most High. There is no one exactly like you and you have your own story to tell.
The world may try to change you or mold you into something that isn’t you or doesn’t make your heart sing. Your family, your friends, your boss, everyone has their own story; their own view of you and their own expectations for you. To honor them and you can be difficult.
Be true to who you are; honor your gifts and your desires. Your life is your story and you are the author. What kind of story do you want to write? Despite what the people in your life want or what society and the world at large dictate Be You! Being true to yourself is the bravest thing you can do and the greatest accomplishment of your life.
Affirmation: I am true to myself.

From that calm place let the voice of your heart whisper to you; it knows the answer.
Affirmation: When in doubt I look to the ocean.
You are not alone; no human is an island unto themselves. We are connected to one another through the Energy that binds us all as one family. We are on this journey we call Life together; we can take each other and ourselves higher. We can raise the consciousness of our society and our world by raising our own and that of another.
You blossom and grow into more of who you are meant to be as you help others feel love, see the greatness within and grow themselves. You can make a difference in small and miraculous ways; a genuine smile, a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen, a word of encouragement, a random act of kindness; these things can make all the difference in the world to someone.
Be a channel for Love to flow through, a beacon of Light to dispel the darkness, a Ray of Hope to cast our despair and a Reason that someone feels loved, understood, appreciated, and valued then watch them and you blossom and grow.
Affirmation: I grow as I help others grow.

I was watching the “Greatest Showman” the other day and I absolutely love the song “This Is Me”. How often do we hide our broken parts or are ashamed of our scars but as the song says “don’t let them break me down to dust, I know that there’s a place for us,For we are glorious .”

Everyone has a money story, an energetic relationship with money. What are your thoughts about money? Is money bad? Is it the root of all evil? Are rich people bad people? Do spiritual people have money? Is money a wonderful thing? Is money freedom? Is there more than enough for everyone?
Do you love money? How do feel at just reading that question? That will tell you a lot about your relationship with money. Do you love your child, (grandchild or anyone close to you)? Do you feel differently about the second question? Is it okay to love a child but not okay to love money?
If you don’t love money you push it away from you and block it from coming to you. Why would it come to you if you have negative thoughts about it? Money is just energy, it is looking for like energy to flow into. Heal your thoughts (many of which didn’t even come from you. Most came from family or past pain or trauma). Write a new beautiful, love story about money. Heal your energy about money and you will allow it to flow to you. It is an abundant Universe and there is more than enough for everyone.
Affirmation: I love money!

Within each one of us lies Divinity. Within each one of us lies the true nature of our being. Within each one of us lies Love, Light, Abundance, Creativity, Wisdom, Peace and Power. Within each one of us lies the Greatness we were born to be. We may not all be aware of it but it’s there hidden under the pain and the sadness.
See that Greatness in everyone you meet and it just might help them see it in themselves. See that greatness in others and you see more of it in yourself too. I see the greatness that lies in you and the greatness that lies in me.

Everything in the Universe is Energy. The Earth, the sun, the stars, the moon, the plants, the animals and you! You are connected to the Energy that flows through everything.
Love is energy and Money is energy. Just like air there is more than enough of each for everyone. You don’t worry about having enough air, you just know without even thinking about it that there is enough. You don’t compare how much air you have to how much air someone else has. You don’t wish, hope or pray you have more; you know there is enough.
If you want more Love or more Money you have to erase the thoughts in your mind that limit you and open your heart to the unlimited flow of Love and Abundance that is ever present. Don’t worry, compare, wish, hope or pray for more as those things lower your energy and bring more worry, comparing, wishing and hoping to you. They block the things you want from coming to you.
If you find your mind worrying, wishing or hoping for more remember that Love & Abundance are like air; every present and more than enough for everyone. Erase the limiting beliefs you have about Love and Money; most of them didn’t even come from you. They came from limiting and false family and societal beliefs and fears. Open your being to the Truth and the flow of Love and Abundance just like you open up to breathing.
Affirmation: Everything is energy; Love, Money, Air, Everything and there is enough for everyone.

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 we 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!
I married the love of my life on my father’s birthday. My father passed the next year and I laid him to rest beside the love of his life on my birthday. He was surrounded by my mom, his mom and his sisters as he made his transition. Before he passed was the first time I had actually seen light beings. They were watching over him ready to welcome him back to the Love he came from.

You may not be able to control everyone that is in your life, but you can control who plays a starring role in your life. Who do you spend most of your time with, who do you give your energy to, who nourishes your soul, who do you let play a starring role in your own life?
Some people lift you up and some people drag you down. Some people give you energy and some people are empty, so they try to take your energy away. Don’t let the people that drag you down or suck your energy play an important role in what happens in your life. You have to let some people go and sometimes you have to love them from a distance.
Affirmation: The people that nourish my soul play a starring role in my life.
Forget the shore, let go and swim!

We are often our own worst enemies. We see our faults; we criticize what we do and how we look; we speak to ourselves in a manner we would never use when talking to another. Sometimes we put ourselves down and create doubt in our mind as to what we can or cannot do. We compare ourselves to others and often put more importance on pleasing others than doing what our soul is calling us to do. Time for that behavior to stop. Time to stop over valuing what you don’t have and undervaluing what you do have.
It’s time to see the greatness within; time to see your value and your gifts. It is time to honor the amazing body that carries you through your life. It’s time to speak to yourself with understanding, patience and love. It’s time to believe in your worth, your value and your potential. It’s time to see what is possible for you in this lifetime. Now is the time to value what you DO have.
Affirmation: I value me. I see and honor my gifts and my potential.

Whenever you doubt to destroy what you have begun to build. It’s like planting a seed then stepping on it as it begins to poke its head out of the soil. Have faith in your intention. Have faith that the Universe will support you. Have faith that all is in Divine Order.
Have patience as some things take time. A seed takes time to germinate, blossom and grow so does your intention and your dreams. There is magic in the soil; we can’t see what is going on when it is buried in the dark, but we know the seed will come to fruition. There is magic in the Universe. You can’t always see what is coming to you, you may feel like you’re in the dark, but have patience and let the Universe work its magic. Don’t let doubt destroy your intention and your dreams.
Affirmation: I have faith and patience knowing the Universe supports my intention.
I saw my first hummingbird this morning and that always makes me happy. Every year I look forward to their return. 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.
These tiny birds fly thousands of miles alone and often stop at the same feeders on their way back to the same feeders where they were born. Last year we had a mom, a dad and 2 babies.

Reading or listening to inspirational and motivational material will help you start something but it’s developing a habit that will keep you on track.
It takes at least 59 days of consistent action to create a habit. Use whatever methods you can to keep you going for those first 59 days, after that your behavior will become automatic.
Find a compelling reason to keep you motivated in the beginning so ask yourself why you want to accomplish your desire. Marry yourself to this reason; let it become part of you.
Make the reason and the desired result part of your identity. For instance; if you want to lose weight say I am a person that eats healthy and exercises regularly so my body feels great. If you want to write a book, identify with the reason and say I am an Author. If you want to create a course, determine why and define yourself as a teacher.
Whatever you want to accomplish make it part of who you are and how you define yourself then let your actions become habitual to that end.
Affirmation: I create habits that support my goals.

Affirmation: I Love Me!

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 what you experience.

Pay attention to the messages the Universe is sending you. Those messages may be hidden so you have to take time to stop, look and listen. Stop the business of the day and stop the noise in your mind through meditation. Look within to find your own knowing, look around you for doors to open and synchronicity to appear. Listen to the guidance from your higher self and listen carefully to every whisper from the Universe.

I love the picture above; it’s my daughter reaching out to hold my hand during a yoga retreat. Our hands have held each other throughout our lives. I am a mother to 4 grown children and Gigi to 7 grandchildren with #8 arriving any day now. My youngest children are twins and with 4 small children life was pretty busy. It truly takes a village to raise a healthy, loving family.
My mom was an incredible help to me during those busy days. When I was on bed rest for 3 weeks during my pregnancy with my twins she visited with me daily; cheering me up and helping with my other 2 children. Once the twins arrived she was with me daily again to help with the adjustment to having 2 infants. When I went through a difficult divorce and questioned everything she let me know how proud she was of me. Her hands held mine through many of the ups and downs in my life.
Gone now some 20 years I give thanks for her hands to this day and hope she knew how much I love and appreciated her. I hope I have held the hands of those I love with compassion and understanding. I hope I have made as much of an impact in my kids and grandchildren’s lives.
Who are the hands that hold yours? Who are the hands that lift you up when you fall and cheer you on when you rise? Who makes up your village? Who celebrates your successes and comforts you during the losses? Who lets you know how proud they are of you? Who believes in you? Who is there when you need a friend, a cheerleader, an ally or a shoulder?
Give thanks for those hands; don’t take them for granted or think they’ll be there forever. Nothing in life is guaranteed so take time now to appreciate those hands. Let them know how much they mean to you and how grateful you are for them.
Affirmation: I give thanks for the hands that hold mine though all of life’s ups and downs.
We are all on this journey together; we can create harmony and compassion in the Universe or we can diminish them through our voice and how we respond to situations.
Affirmations: My voice creates harmony and compassion.
Yesterday I had a reaction to a shot and I was quite sick all day long. I felt bad that I didn’t get anything done but sometimes we just have to stop and let our body heal and that’s okay.
Everything serves the Light! The night gives birth to the day. The dark soil gives birth to the flowers and trees as they reach for the light. The darkness of the womb gives birth to the animal and the child bringing new Life to our world.
The darkness and the shadows in your life bring new awareness, new wisdom and new light. We often learn the most from those challenging times in our life. Every wound and every crack lets the Light from within shine even brighter.
Affirmation: The darkness serves the Light.
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.
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 manifestations they are meant to be.
Affirmations: I plant seeds of Love, Peace, Abundance & Joy
My new granddaughter is due today. Though the whole family can’t wait to meet her and we excitedly await her arrival she is going to come when she is ready not when anyone else wants her to come.

We are continually learning and growing. Continually receiving new information, processing what it means to us and deleting what doesn’t fit in our model of the world or expanding our model of the world.

Affirmation: I am continually becoming more of Me.
Today is my husband’s birthday and I love this picture of him. It was a warm sunny day at a sidewalk café in Italy and he was completely caught up in the magic of the moment. “I love how good I feel when I feel good” is a quote from him.

Money is energy. Think of money like air; there is plenty for everyone. You don’t have to think or worry about breathing, you just breathe. You aren’t jealous if someone else breathes in deeply, you don’t worry about breathing too much air… you just breathe.
Money/Abundance, like air, is an energy that is ever present. You don’t make money, you tap into the energy and flow of it. When you do that it will be magnetically drawn to you.
Take a look at your beliefs about money. What is money to you? Is it the root of all evil, hard to make or limited? Do you think you have to work hard, sacrifice your family or manipulate others? Write down your beliefs about money then write down where those beliefs came from. Was it your parents, friends, school or church? Do those beliefs work for you or bring abundance into your life?
Your beliefs about money and abundance are the foundation of what you are experiencing. You must build a foundation that is strong; one that will allow you to tap into the infinite flow of abundance if you want to experience more of it. A house will not stand if the foundation is unstable and you will not experience abundance if your beliefs do not align with the abundance of the Universe. Build a strong foundation and money will flow to you easily.
Affirmation: Money flows to me easily and effortlessly.
Seasons change bringing new growth, life changes bringing new opportunities and time keeps moving on. Embrace the changes in the world and in your life; they can be beautiful!

To know who you are you must also know who you aren’t. You are not your ego mind. You are not your thoughts just as the painter is not the painting. You are not your judgements, your limitations or your experiences and you are certainly not what other people think of you.
You are much more than your body and this physical existence. You are life and magic itself. You are an immortal expression of the Divine; a perpetual creator of life, a spark of the Infinite and a slice of heaven. You are clarity and creativity. You are a higher consciousness and frequency. You are the creative force in action. You are playfulness and joy.
To really know thyself you must let go of how you identify yourself; let go of your ego or the labels you put on yourself. Go beyond your thinking mind. Meditate and connect with your higher self and your higher vibration. That’s where the magic is; that’s where the truth, creativity and wisdom are… then go have fun!
Affirmation: I know myself!
” My grandmother had a saying she lived by in Italian: “Non sai mai quale forma il
Lord entrerà dalla tua porta”. Translated it means “You never know what form the Lord is going to walk through your door in.” She saw the Good/God in everyone and everything.
My mother lived the same way. She saw the Good in everyone and sometimes that Good was buried pretty deep. I try to do the same. There have been many experiences that people would label as “bad” in my life but everyone and everything has made me who I am today and I love who I am today. I’m still learning, growing and discovering me; still raising my vibration and still loving me…and you!
The Lord/God/Source, whatever name you use, doesn’t always show up in recognizable ways. Sometimes it may be difficult to see the Good in every person or every situation but know It is there. Trust that everything is helping you raise your vibration and uncover the greatness that is you.
Affirmation: I see the Good in everyone and everything.

Sometimes we over analyze everything; we often think too much and give meaning to things and events that may not be correct. The mind is a beautiful thing but sometimes the ego/mind takes over and the ego can distort things and be very wrong.
Though we must have a strong ego to be able to let it go; the key is letting it go and surrendering to something greater than the ego. Surrender to the highest part of your being. Surrender to your highest self and let everything flow from there.
Growing up in the middle of 5 boys I thought surrender was a sign of weakness but surrender is the bravest thing I have ever done. Surrender to something more than your physical being. Surrender to your Divine Consciousness which is forever expanding into more, and watch your life unfold in magical ways.
Affirmation: I surrender to my highest self and my life unfolds magically.

Spring arrives today! After a long winter we welcome the equinox; the day and the night are approximately the equal length. It is a time to cleanse out the stagnant energy of self and home. It’s also a time for rebirth and new growth.
As I look outside my window I see my hyacinths, tulips, daffodils and crocuses coming alive. They poke their heads up out of the dark and reach for the sun. Soon they will fill our world with color. We too come out of our homes more to embrace the warmth, welcome the sun and celebrate life renewed.
Take time to reflect on where you have been and where you want to go. Breathe in the spring air and let it cleanse, rejuvenate and inspire you. Welcome spring with all it’s new life and color. Welcome the hidden gifts and color within you and let them come alive.

Sometimes we do good and we get good and sometimes life isn’t fair. Sometimes we ask why me or point the finger at someone else trying to find fault in another or blame another. These questions won’t help us grow or take us higher.
Ask a better question: What can I do with this situation? or How can I learn and grow from this? So much of what happens in our life is giving us an opportunity to discover our strengths and uncover our greatness.
Affirmation: When I face a difficulty I ask what can I do with the situation to uncover my greatness.
In the wee hours of the morning this morning I couldn’t sleep. I was thinking about a big decision I have to make. I started thinking of my own journey; where I have been and where I am going. It gave me a good feeling to remember how far I have come and how much I have achieved over the years.
There are so many precious moments from your past to cherish and remember; so many lessons you have learned and so many dreams that became reality. It’s good to take that all in sometimes and let it all sink into your being to remind you of your greatness.
It’s okay to visit your past; to take a look at all you have gone through and all you have accomplished. It’s good to remember all the hurdles you have jumped over and all the goals you have achieved. You really are an extraordinary person. Visit your past and bring all the good with you but don’t live there.
Affirmation: I remember all the precious memories, goals achieved and lessons learned from my past but I don’t live there.

For Christians this past Wednesday was Ash Wednesday, it is the beginning of Lent, a period of 40 days leading up to Easter. Lent is a time to remember Jesus, his teachings and the events leading up to his death on the cross and his resurrection on Easter.
Whether you are a Christian or not 3 of the things that anyone can do to increase spiritual and physical health are Fasting, Prayer and Almsgiving.
Fasting can be food, drink or any action that you will restrain from doing. This teaches you discipline and can bring you a deeper connection to God. Fasting food has many physical benefits as well. It boosts cognitive performance, reduces inflammation, supports weight loss, protects from obesity and associated chronic diseases, and delays aging.
Prayer is an invocation or act that seeks to activate a rapport with God/Source/Divine(whatever word you use) through deliberate communication. Prayer can connect you to a higher power, reduce stress and anxiety, increase gratitude and peace, help you gain clarity and bring about miracles.
Almsgiving is an outward sign of loving one another. Alms are money, food, time or other material goods donated to people living in poverty. Providing alms is often considered an act of virtue or charity. In almsgiving bonds of community are formed, it strengthens our love for others, increases our detachment and contributes to greater social justice.
Whether you decide to practice any of these things for the next 40 days, for the whole year or for the rest of your days you will find they enhance your life in many ways.
Love is within you and all around you, let it flow through you. Love one another and yourself always in all ways!
Affirmation: I Love always in all ways!

Everyone has their own path to follow, their own gifts to share and lessons to learn. We may not always understand the choices they make but it’s important to honor their right to make them. It may be difficult to watch another make some of those choices but it’s important to respect them.
Some people are wounded, some people are lost, some people are confused, some people are afraid. We don’t always know another’s story. We don’t always know the pain people have endured. We don’t always know the demons that torment them or the agony that haunts them.

Thought of the Day…
You’re never too old to dream it, believe it, go for it, do it, be it!!
The best kind of life is the one where you are living, experiencing and feeling each moment completely. Being present to each delicious moment lets you experience these moments fully and remember them in the future, with all their texture and feeling still in your mind.
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.
We can’t go back in time or see into the future and if we put our energy there we miss out on today. We miss out on the future we hope for if we forget to be present.
To stay in the present moment Continue
Affirmations: I am present to this precious moment of Now.
Today is Baxter, my Maltese dog’s 4th birthday and he is definitely one of my angels. We got him before Covid hit and everything shut down. I was able to continue writing but I was out of work with my other job and didn’t see people often; I would’ve been very lonely without him by my side to keep me company.
Baxter seems to know when someone is sick and sits near them. He knows when someone needs comfort and he also must sleep with my grandchildren to watch over them whenever we have sleepovers.
Dogs are not the only way angels show up in life. An angel could be a call, a letter in the mail, a text, a message from someone. Could be a smile, a door suddenly opening for you or even a thought that seems to come from nowhere but changes everything or sometimes it’s a whisper from beyond.
Pay attention, be open, listen carefully and be grateful for all the angels in your life.
Affirmations: I am grateful for all the angels that show up in my life no matter what form they take.
Fill your heart with Love, fill your mind with Light and fill the world with peace.

One of my favorites is: 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 multiplies all around me.
Affirmation: I feed my mind positive thoughts all day long.
No matter what path you’re on or what twists and turns life presents keep moving and you’ll keep your balance. You can take your time and move slowly to enjoy the ride or speed up and move fast to reach your destination quicker. The important thing is to keep moving as life goes on.
Affirmation: I keep moving to keep my balance.
“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” – Rumi
Sometimes, we get so discouraged that we feel powerless to change our situation. Sometimes we fall into a fixed mindset where we think things will stay the same and we can’t do anything about it.
But the only way to break out of this negative spiral is by changing your inner world. This is the key to influencing your external world so you can move forward in life.

Life is a journey of uncovering the greatness that is within. Sometimes it seems like we are on a quiet country road and sometimes it feels like we’re on an expressway speeding into the unknown. Every road gives us an opportunity to learn and grow as we become more of who we are meant to be.
The end of the year is a great time to slow down and go into the silence, to evaluate our lives and to re-prioritize what is most important. It’s also a great time to appreciate the precious gifts life has brought 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.

After months of planning, shopping, decorating, wrapping, cooking, anticipating and celebrating, Christmas is over. Today is always a bittersweet day for me as I love Christmas but I am tired.
Today before I begin the task of putting all the decorations and traces of Christmas away I take the time to stop, rest and give thanks for the many gifts in my life, especially the ones that weren’t under the tree. May you find the time to rest and appreciate all the gifts in your life.
Affirmation: I let myself stop, rest and give thanks for all the gifts in my life.
Take time today to think about the magic of what this day 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.
Oh what a night! A night full of anticipation and hope for a young couple; a sky full of stars with one special star leading the way; a world awaiting the promise of a new day and a new way of life. May Divine Light shine on you tonight and every night!

What is Priming? Psychology Today defines Priming as a phenomenon in which exposure to one stimulus influences how a person responds to a subsequent, related stimulus.
Simply put Priming is using words and/or activities that lift your energy to change your state of mind so you can accomplish more. Creating a priming routine gives you more energy and shifts your vibration so you can bring more into your life through the laws of attraction & vibration.
Tony Robbins uses Priming every day and he shares his morning routine with you. He says “You can learn to change your state of mind by changing your physical state with an effective priming routine. You can learn to use repetition priming to create positive associations and use the Law of Attraction to get what you want in life.”
There are many ways you can use Priming to shift your energy and your vibration to create the life of your dreams. Beginning your day with a priming routine first thing in the morning is the perfect way to assure you have a more productive day. It helps you stay with your routine, trains your brain to be open to positive thoughts and ideas and sets you up for success each day. Check out the 10 steps by clicking the link below:

For a life well lived, a life that is blessed and filled with all good things follow this Recipe for Life: take a pound of Gratitude, add a cup of Love, mix in an ounce of Joy and sprinkle in a spoonful of Grace. Mix them all together then bake with total Surrender.

We all have people we meet on this journey called life. Sometimes the exchange is positive and uplifting and sometimes it is painful and confusing.
Each meeting is important though and brings something valuable to our lives. The tricky part is being able to take the valuable pieces and keep going without getting lost.
The good news is we get to choose where we are going. We get to choose who and what we focus on and give our attention to. We get to choose who we let play a starring role in our lives.
Don’t get lost going down a path any longer than you need to. Let your path touch another, travel together for a while or cross another and go in a totally different direction.
We can’t control another’s path, they have their own lessons to learn and teach, their own final destination. Though some may slow us down for a bit thank them for the lesson, send them love & light and let them go. Sometimes we have to love people from a distance and that’s okay.
We can only control our own journey. Where do you want to go? Who do you want along for the ride? Focus on where you are going. Give your attention to the people you want to accompany you. Let the people you want around you play a starring role in your life. It’s your life and your path; focus on making it the best journey ever!
Affirmation: I focus on making my life the best journey ever!

A good friend of mine had a stroke today. He was about to retire early and travel but life had other plans. Being healthy in mind, body and spirit certainly is the first wealth. Take care of your body, take care of your whole being; it’s where you will spend your whole life.
The dictionary defines health as the state of being free from illness or injury. I believe health refers also to a state of well-being where the physical body is free from disease and when someone has an overall balance physically, socially, spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, environmentally and occupationally.
When you are healthy Continue

When I worked with Tony Robbins especially at Date with Destiny where people take a deep dive into their beliefs and their lives we could often see people about to rewire their brain and have a breakthrough. There was a look of confusion as they tried to process new information. This happened to me when I first did Date with Destiny as a participant. I remember the confusion I felt just before I had a major breakthrough.
Have you ever felt confusion about your life; what something means, which way to go or what to do? Often when you gain new information; information that challenges your ideas, your beliefs and your model of the world you are about to learn a valuable lesson and rewire your brain. This can lead to confusion as your brain tries to process the new information but once you grasp the concept you learn, you grow and your world changes.
Nest time you feel confusion about something in your life just remember you about to learn something, have an epiphany and have a break through. Be patient with yourself, keep an open mind and love yourself through the confusion. You are about to change your life.
Affirmation: When I get confused I know I am about to learn something valuable.
