false gratitude

While gratitude is one of my favorite spiritual practices, there can be a downside. Last year, I got into some debt. However, I was determined not to let it get me down. I used my daily gratitude practice to pull myself out of my post debt blues. I told myself that I was grateful for […]

Three Words That May be Blocking your Abundance

You’ve probably read and listened to hours of content on how to attract abundance into your life. I’m sure you’ve applied some of these things in your own life. However, you’re not getting consistent results, and you become frustrated and may even believe that an abundant life just isn’t for you. That’s not true at […]

my big chin and the lie of perfectionism

Earlier in my business, I reached out to a friend and asked her to help me film a video for my Facebook page that would describe my services. After several attempts, I finally had something that I could use. One of my family members was horrified and tried to get me to take down the […]

What You Can Learn from my Bout of Writer’s Block

I’m not good enough. Who am I to do this work? What if no one wants to hear what I have to say? This is the exact inner dialog that kept me stuck in the illusion commonly known as writer’s block. As a result, creating content for my business was pushed to the bottom of […]

Too many obstacles?

Yesterday, I was taking a walk when I noticed something. On two separate occasions, my path was almost completely blocked by obstacles. There was a sidewalk that was completely blocked by several cars. On that occasion, someone helped me to navigate around them so I could continue along my usual route. On the second occasion, […]

Feeling overwhelmed? Try this instead.

At an early age, we’re often conditioned to remain in a constant state of overwhelm. Instead of focusing on the task at hand, we want to know the outcome of the entire project. How much more progress would we make if we focused on what was right in front of us? In school, I’ve been […]

So you don’t think you’re creative?

I’ve heard people say that they’re not creative. I would have to disagree with that statement. If you believe that you’re a spiritual being in a physical body, then you are creative in some way. You may not write a bestseller, compose a beautiful symphony, or paint a single picture in your lifetime. However, we […]

Learning to Dance

During the past year, I lost a close friend to cancer, found out that two of my friends have to leave their home, and made some business decisions that sent me into debt. On a more positive note, I began to read the Akashic records, gained clarity on how to move forward, increased my confidence […]

A Message for Those who Live from the Heart

It can be scary to live from the heart. It requires strength, courage and determination. When you choose this path, know that some people may not understand you and may even judge you. Some days, you may even feel lonely or slightly depressed. These periods are followed by the excitement and joy that comes from […]

You shouldn’t have!

Have you ever realized that sometimes, we treat others better than we treat ourselves? For example, I wouldn’t yell at another person in order to tell her what she should’ve done. I definitely wouldn’t tell that person that she wasn’t good enough or that she can’t do something. However, I’ve often caught myself saying these […]

accepting what is

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to attend an arts inclusion event with people who are blind and visually impaired as well as sighted volunteers. In honor of Earth day, we were given clay and asked to sculpt something that reminds us of our planet. I decided to attempt a cat sculpture. I started with the […]

Are you listening?

Have you ever prayed for something and/or set an intention, but you never seem to receive an answer? It can be extremely frustrating and disappointing, especially when we are going through a difficult time. However, I encourage you to consider another perspective. When we send out our prayers and intentions into the universe, are we […]

how to use journalling as a manifesting tool

Although I have resisted journaling as a spiritual practice for a while, I have to admit that it is a powerful tool for healing and growth. Recently, I’ve been inspired to use journaling as a tool for setting intentions for the day. This exercise only takes a few minutes, and it can be very powerful. […]

You’re not broken!

I have an important message for you today. You’re not broken. All of us are whole because we are divine sacred beings. How can I say these things with confidence? There was a period of my life where I suffered from severe depression. I didn’t want to get out of bed in the morning, and […]

That’s not good enough!

Have you ever said or thought phrases like, “That’s not good enough?” While there are people who can easily shove these occasional thoughts aside, there are others who are holding onto an underlying belief that they’re not enough. When I was in grade school and the teacher would ask me a question, I would claim […]

why we get what we need before getting what we want

Why is it that when you are manifesting something, and really looking forward to it, does it seem to take forever to come to you? This could happen for many reasons, and divine timing is one of them. Also, there are times when we are hung up on getting what we want when the universe […]

Just be yourself!

Just be yourself. That’s great advice, but how can we do that in a society where we are expected to follow the so-called acceptable way of doing things? Also, why would we even want to be completely authentic if it’s so darn hard and unpopular? When we are truly authentic, we are allowing ourselves to […]

how to take inspired action

In both the spiritual and self-help communities, we are encouraged to take inspired action. What does that really mean, and how, exactly, are we supposed to do that? Where does this inspiration even come from? For example, when I began this blog, I researched topics and added a few of my insights along the way. […]

saying “yes” when it doesn’t make sense

Have you ever said “yes” to your inner guidance even when it didn’t make sense? How did it feel? When we say “yes” to our intuitive guidance even when that guidance doesn’t make sense to our logical minds, it can bring up a lot of fears and insecurities. We can experience the fear of judgment […]
