Yesterday as I was driving to an empowerment dance class I teach, I listened to an interview with Albert Woodfox. He just was released from living in solitary confinement for over 40 YEARS. Yes, I wrote that correctly over 40 YEARS! The question that was asked of him that resonated with me was; how did you maintain your sanity all that time? Now the question I have for you is what prison are you living in? If you are able to move about freely, drive, walk, fly, take a bus, train or any other means of travel without restrains and thinking your trapped in a cell, your right. You are in the prison cell of your mind. I can not imagine how someone could spend over four decades in solitary confinement without going totally crazy, but Albert Woodfox’s spirit was not broken. He is a testament to all of us to stay grateful for the freedom that we already have even if we feel trapped in our own minds. The cruelty and torture he endured was inhuman. The cruelty and torture we inflict on ourselves are the doings of thoughts that do not serve our spirit. Set yourself free. As Albert walked out a free man after all these years, you too can set yourself free. Albert Woodfox is a heroic man who was unjustly sentenced to endure his life in solitary confinement but showed us all that our spirit is free even in the isolated chambers of a prison. God bless…

I recently had a discussion with someone who felt that everyone is going to die anyway so why not do what you want. My philosophy on life is totally different. Yes, no one gets out alive. We are all going to die one day, however it is the quality of life that is all so important. The choices we make will create either a healthy life style or a destructive one. I chose to eat healthy, think thoughts that are empowering, meditate, be of service and laugh a lot. These choices will give me the quality of life I am seeking. Yes, I might die tomorrow however, I know I would have lived my life my way and in a healthy way. Too many people are not living, the are existing with long drawn out illnesses. How do you want to live your life? Chose wisely.

Life is like a heartbeat. We have our ups and downs, our good times and not so good times, our highs and our lows. It is also like the tide, with high tides and low tides. Or it can be likened to the moon with all its fazes as well. There is a rhythm to its beat, and an ebb and flow. When we are balanced and calm we can flow through all the changes of life with ease, but when we allow our emotions to get the better of us, the rhythm becomes more extreme and erratic. These disturbances lead our bodies to get out of sync with the natural rhythm of life itself. When this occurs, all other systems in your body get effected.
We need the contrast of life to know the difference between each other. We wouldn’t know the light if there was no darkness. What we need to understand is the balance between the two and stay in the dance of the opposites. This is the heartbeat of life. If we didn’t have this heartbeat we would flat lined ________________________________.
So enjoy all of life’s ups and downs, it is all a part of the rhythm.

All is consciousness and bliss and that is all there is. Do you believe this statement? And if not, why not? The intensity of energy is power. This energy is the one substance of the universe. It is coursing through your being, it is all around you, at all times. It is only a shifting of your energy. When we connect with this energy it provides us with all the power we need to live a conscious and blissful life. Unfortunately, most people don’t believe this and recharge through battery power, (limited supply) and then run out of juice, only having to replace their batteries. We look for the next high through food, substances, people or any other temporary fix to give us the illusion of feeling this bliss. However if you learn how to connect to the infinite supply of energy, you never have to worry about running low because it is always available. Tapping into the infinite, unlimited power is not a new way of life, it is only awakening to the essence of your authentic self. It is shifting your energy to a higher vibration. When your able to play with this energy, through understanding your emotions, (energy in motion) you begin to access the enormous power that is surging through your veins. Do you want to learn how to do this? Make the call!
