Purpose? Passion? What’s The Difference?

I have dated surfers most of my life. You may be wondering, is it the sun bleached hair? The tan? The six pack stomach? I will answer, “Yes…and no.” My first crush was in the 7th grade. With every flip of his semi-long blonde hair (after-all, it was the 80’s), I fell into a deep love-sick trance…. Continue Reading →

Surrender – You Are Not In Control Anyway

*Why not surrender? Do you have anything better to do? Surrender is the most powerful word; and yet, many cringe when the suggestion is made. Well, at least I did. I “thought” of it as weak and giving up. I was one stubborn gal. And yet to experience its power… Back in my late 20’s,… Continue Reading →

A Homage To Gratitude

*Breathe into your own divinity and celebrate with the champagne of gratitude! No matter what is going on in your life, you will ALWAYS have a reason to be grateful. (Tweet-worthy!) And yet, gratitude is often the last emotion we embrace while going through a challenge. Why? Because we are choosing to resist the “what… Continue Reading →

Proof That “Could” Is A Gentler Word Than “Should”

*Be gentle with yourself, beloveds, and replace your “Should” with the word, “Could.”  Many of you have heard of replacing the “should” word, without taking action. You COULD take the time today and see how frequently you impose “should” in your life experience. Before you know it, you are self-rejecting (especially if you don’t go… Continue Reading →

Your Heart’s Decisions Need No Justification!

Your heart either says, “yes” or “no.” When you say “no,” your mind wants to give many reasons… WHY. Simplify your life! Your heart’s decisions need no justification.  How often have you been asked to do something or go somewhere, knowing that your first instinct was to say, “no,” BUT, there seemed to be no… Continue Reading →

Respecting The Power Of Children

By opening my heart genuinely and exploring my vulnerability, I am willing to share my most intimate story as a mother to a son with developmental challenges. When we choose to see life through our hearts, we will be more equipped to manage opportunities through the divine awareness of our connected souls. Life is full… Continue Reading →

Change Your Language – Change Your Experience Of Living!

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God…. Continue Reading →

Addictions Are The ONLY Cause Of Suffering – No Exceptions!

Addiction. What does this word mean to you? Once upon a time, I gave it a completely different meaning than I do today. You see, it was so much easier for me to LOOK at other people’s lives than my own. I had allowed my ego to convince me that I didn’t have any addictions – they… Continue Reading →

Resist The Inevitable Or Die Happy In Surrender

I don’t know about you, but I have resisted death since the day I learned about its existence. As a teenager, I ignored the inevitable because I was too young to even think about such morbid thoughts. Dying was not something I was going to do any time soon, so why worry about it? That’s… Continue Reading →

Love Can Build A Bridge

“Stay away from the word ‘boundary.’ The minute you say it, it conjures up walls and resistance and separateness. You don’t need that. Use the other ‘b’ word instead. ‘Bridge.’” -Cinnamon Lofton I remember when my teacher first introduced me to the idea of creating a bridge rather than a boundary. It was one of those… Continue Reading →

She Was Beautiful

“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for that sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful… Continue Reading →

Get Out Of Your Mind! Quick!

How in the heck do I get out of my intellectual mind and listen to my heart mind? How do I know the difference? Or, even if there is a difference? How? How? HOW?!?!? UGH!!! I so remember the days I confused myself into a tizzy, “trying” to figure out how to make a decision…. Continue Reading →
