Are You Living in Flatlands?

August 25, 2015
“If I’m not living on the edge,
I’m taking up way to much room.”
– my Coach and Mentor

If you only see what you know, how do we ever see what we don’t know? There are so many mysteries and wonders about our world, which we yet still do not know. There are also still many dreams within us that still haven’t been realized.

At one time people thought the earth was flat and that we would fall off it, if we travelled to its edge.  Of course, now we know this is not true.  But are we still living in a sort of flat land? What I mean is, we put limits on ourselves on what we believe we can do or can’t do. How do we venture out of the box we have put ourselves in? Well, you have to become it to know it. We have to step out of our boxes with a leap of faith and courage to explore the possibilities of who we can become.

At one time people thought that it was impossible to run a mile in less than 4 minutes. Then in 1954 Roger Bannister shattered that belief. Since then it has been broken many times. What is it that you really want to do, but afraid to? A few years back I always wanted to go to the Amazon jungle in Peru and be guided by a Shaman. My friends and family thought that I was crazy to venture out alone to a place I have never been to. But it was a calling I had to fulfill and I am so happy that I listened to my intuition and did it!  I grew by leaps and bounds! (The details of that adventure are for another time.) Helen Keller once said “Life should be a glorious adventure or nothing at all.”

I believe you always need someone to assist you in stepping outside of your comfort zone to explore the possibilities of what you can become. An empowerment coach becomes your best advocate and encourages you to realize that whatever it is you desire you can become it. So step out of your flatlands and discover a brave new world.

Isn’t it interesting that what we are most afraid of thrills us the most?
So step out of your flatlands…

What’s the Matter

August 25, 2015

Last week I watched a show on PBS about the discovery of matter. It was absolutely fascinating. At one time people believed that the four elements of matter were, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Then through research, curiosity, and experimentation, a physicist by the name of Dmitri Mendeleyev, and others began uncovering the mysteries of those four elements. Now we have the periodic table which organizes all the compositions, structure, and properties, of matter.  It’s as if the answers to life’s wonders  were being revealed to those who persistently sought for them. Madame Curie, discovered radium, through pain stacking years of dedication, determination, and persistence. Numerous other researchers discovered other chemicals that make up matter.

What does this have to do with you and your life?   Everything! We are spiritual being living in a body, a body is matter, matter is made of smaller elements of molecules, molecules are made up of atoms, and atoms are made up of protons, neurons, and electrons. Then we get even smaller into subatomic particles which are made up of quarks, photons, and neutrinos. After that, I’m not sure but it is more like we have the universe inside of each and everyone of us. We posses an infinite sea of possible potentiality waiting to be discovered.

Matter is life itself. The Greek root of matter is mother, creation, and material. The more we know, the more there is to know. So stay curious, and uncover the chemistry of what makes your life unique. There are many chemical reactions, and attractions. You do matter!matter

What’s on Your Mind?

August 18, 2015

How does your brain or mind work? Actually your brain and your mind are not the same. Your brain is the portion of the central  nervous system. It is responsible for the interpretation of sensory impulses, the coordination and control of bodily activities, and the exercise of emotion, memory, and thought. Your mind is consciousness. In very simplistic terms, it’s  like your brain is the hard drive, and your mind holds the programs. We have a conscious and subconscious mind. We also have a right and left brain. The left hemisphere of your brain is dominant in language: processing what you hear and handling most of the duties of speaking. It is logical, and mathematical.

The right hemisphere is mainly in charge of spatial abilities, face recognition and processing music. Intuition and visual imagery are processed here. It is considered the creative side. Most people use their left brains more than their right. However it would serve us well if we were able to utilize both sides efficiently. There is so much we still don’t know about our minds and brains. We have come to learn that our brains are plastic. This means  that it has the capacity to be flexible and change. It is able to relearn, reprogram, rewire and reconnect. So, if our brains get damaged some how, we can reboot the hard drive and if we don’t like the programs that have been down loaded we can delete them and add new programs. It is quite fascinating and amazing! Never under estimate the power of your mind and brain. After all we are pure consciousness, expressing ourselves in physical form.

Are You Ready For Healing?

August 11, 2015

Are you ready for healing energy? You can tap into this vortex of energy at any time. All that is required is releasing the old patterns that you are clinging on to that no longer serve the expanding, loving you, that you already are. It is a shift in awareness. Allow this healing energy in. Embrace it, accept it, and attract it. It is all around you, at all times. You are a part of this healing energy. Breath in the rich vibration of love into your heart and feel the healing energy penetrate every cell of your being. The universe is alive with this healing energy and is waiting for you to coalesce with it. So, what will it take for you to become conscious of this healing energy? Unfortunately many people wait until there is a crisis to wake them up from the illusion of separation. Just shift your thoughts to nourishing ones, uplifting ones, and positive ones. Once you begin training your mind, you will feel the healing energy pulse through your veins. You will then begin to viscerally experience this healing energy  circulate inside of you and all around you. You will then radiate it out into the world helping shift others in need. Your smile, kind word or soft touch will penetrate, and transmute these old patterns of fear in others too. So why wait for a healing crisis when we can tap into this energy now. It is yours for the asking! healing energy

Will You Adapt to a New World?

August 5, 2015

Have you noticed the changes around you lately? Where are the butterflies? I’ve seen less than a hand full. Where are the beneficial insects, like the praying-Mantis and lady bugs, not to mention the bees?  Climate change is happening, although many people still don’t want to acknowledge it. What kind of world will we be living in if we do not make some conscious decisions on how we live our lives?

The divine feminine is a part of our consciousness and earth. She is assisting us to open our hearts and minds and think like the native Indians did. Sustainability, preservation, and compatibility. This will help us adapt to a new world filled with abundance for all. The sacred feminine energy is emerging, assisting us to recognize the integration of all living and sentient beings. The symbol of the Goddess is about balance, healing, and renewal.

So what kind of world do you want to live it? One filled will beauty, love, and compassion, or one of darkness and despair. How will you adapt to a new world?

” The life force of the divine feminine is the spark that will help us ignite a deeper spiritual, technological, and biological transformation. Her sustainability is our survival.”
