    Detoxing Your Mind

    We cleanse our bodies as a healthy means to flushing out unwanted toxins, but how often do we cleanse our minds of toxic thoughts?  Our minds are just as important as our bodies, if not more, for what we feed our minds, feeds our bodies.  Unhealthy thoughts lead to unhealthy habits that can eventually cause disease and death.  How and what you think will ultimately contribute to the quality of your whole life, physically, mentally and spiritually. Just as it takes time to cleanse and detox our bodies, it also takes time to cleanse and detox our minds.  Our toxic thought patterns are poisonous to our lives and especially to…

    Finding Great Understanding When A Loved One is Ill

    When someone we love gets sick it is a natural reaction to want to help to make them better, but sometimes we can’t make them better.  Sometimes we have to trust and rely upon their doctors to make the best decisions in the interest of healing our loved one. This can leave us feeling helpless to say the least as we stand by watching our loved one suffer.  Without actually being sick ourselves we can’t know what the other person is going through.  It is impossible.  Everyone is different and everyone handles their illnesses in a manner they feel is best for them.  They consult with the best doctors and…

    Second Chances

    There may come a time in your life when you are “offered” a second chance.  A chance to become who you are truly meant to be.  Through whatever means this second chance has come into your life, start from where you are.  There is no need to go back and rehash what was done right or wrong or how you ended up where you are.  There is also no need to start worrying about the future; as to whether or not things will work out or get better. Too often we impair ourselves by believing we need to “clean up” the past, but this will only hinder where you want…

    Knowing Who You Are and Your Worth is Sometimes All You Need

    It is when we truly know who we are and know our worth that we can stand on our own.  We no longer need the people who cause us pain.  The hurtful words and actions of others go through us instead of knocking us down.  For me, they filter through my Inner Life and become purified into love.  Love toward the one who is still suffering.  The one’s who suffer are the ones who hurt us the most.  They say they love us and yet at the same time they aim their spears at us.  Spears filled with THEIR inner pain masked as hurtful words and actions.  When the pain…

    Diminishing the Problem Monster

    Is there a problem you are facing today?  One that makes you feel overwhelmed, stressed out, full of anxiety, sad or unhappy?  Does it feel as though it is bigger than you?  In a sense it is because you are allowing yourself to see it that way.  You have expanded the size of it in your mind into this great big huge monster just waiting to take you down.  It is as though you are looking at it through a magnifying glass believing it is just too much to handle.  Simply speaking, you are allowing this problem, which in fact lives in your outer life control you by blocking you…

    Life Is the Way You Make It

    One of the biggest set backs you can give yourself is allowing your “outer life” control your “inner life”.  Your inner LIFE is who you really are.  It is where nothing can break you and all that matters can be found.  It is where you are protected, safe, loved and one with Source. When we are faced with a broken relationship, financial or business challenges, the death of a loved one, disease, etc. we have a tendency to fall into its evil trap of worry, stress, anxiety, pain and depression.  We allow ourselves to be consumed and sucked up in what is happening to us instead of continuing to be…

    I Am Who I Am Because It Makes ME Happy!

    I have always considered myself to be a strong woman; an independent woman.  A woman who can most certainly take care of herself, fend for herself and hold her own.  I would think this would be a great thing and yet I continually meet people who feel the need to question who I am and the choices I make.  I have blatantly been told that I am weird and then questioned as to what is wrong with me because I choose to be single and independent.  It is thought that I am hiding something, holding back, not allowing people into my life, or live with a hardened heart from past…

    The Freedom of Forgiveness

    Forgiveness is not about the other person. Forgiveness is about freeing OURSELVES from the pain, anger, resentment and negativity we hold against someone else so WE can move forward.  I believe the reason it is so difficult to find forgiveness is because we believe saying “I forgive you” means the same as saying “what you did was okay”.  However, this is not the case.  Forgiveness is not about saying what was done was “OK”; it is about offering a deep understanding toward the other person.  If someone does something that necessitates forgiveness it is because their actions are coming from a place of pain, anger or discontent within themselves and has absolutely nothing…

    Embracing the Unexpected

    Throughout our lives we are going to experience the unexpected.  We will welcome the things that bring us joy and happiness with open arms and we will resist the things that bring us sadness and heartache.  Both are natural reactions to what we want and what we don’t want.   But….what if, instead of trying to resist that which you do not want, you embrace it wholeheartedly as if it were something you did want. What if you were to go with the flow of what life is giving you even if you cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel. Embrace this new life experience with trust,…

    It Is Not Because of You

    What another person says, does, thinks or feels is not because of you.  You may think it is, but it is far from it.  It is because of them; of who they are.  A person’s reaction or response to any one thing is their own. It comes from a place that only they know and understand.  This does not make it wrong or right, it just makes it what it is and who they are. We all live in the same world and yet our worlds are totally different.  This is because we live through our own individual minds.  Yes, we may agree on certain things, but never will any…
