“You’re going to go through tough times- that’s life. But I say, nothing happens to you, it happens for you. See the positive in negative events.” Joel Osteen
Life can get pretty tough sometimes. It can get dirty, messy and so damn hard. Many people are struggling with feelings that are pulling them down. Having a spiritual practice is vital when the going gets tough.
Recently I have been sadden by the death of a dear friend and another one that is fighting for his life, after a diagnose with leukemia. One thing after the next has set back is healing process. It is difficult to witness love ones hurting. I took in another friend into my home who is going through a tough time and I have a coaching client who also just lost her mother and nephew from a drug overdose.
I am so happy and grateful to have the faith that everything is for our highest good. I meditate every morning to stay connect to source energy. I take impeccable care of body by walking, dancing, gardening and other activities to stay healthy, I journal every morning, read inspirational books and listen to things that motivate me. Without this practice, it is easy to sink into a funky state of mind.
Even when you don’t feel like it, that is when it is most important to reach out, stay connected and have a practice that will give you the strength to pull yourself out of any situation that seems dire. You can get through it.

“The most important physiological discovery of the century is the discovery of the self image.” Maxwell Maltz
Who really are you? What are your beliefs about yourself? We are the person we believe ourselves to be. Henry Ford said,” If you think you can’t do something you’re right, If you think you can, you’re right too.”
Maxwell Maltz was a renowned plastic surgeon back in the 1930’s and 1940’s. He saw that after removing scars and preforming other procedures on peoples faces to improve their appearance, they still didn’t feel any better about themselves. He found this remarkable and later went on to write a book Psycho-Cybernetics, were he introduced his idea that a person must have an accurate and positive view of themselves before setting goals; otherwise they will get stuck in a continuing pattern of limiting beliefs.
If ones self image is unhealthy or faulty, everything he or she does will end up in failure. A healthy self image is the key to your success.
The good news is you can change your self image through awareness, study, understanding and diligently applying the principles to become someone new. If you want a new personal reality, you need to create a new personality.
If you want more success, if you want to aspire higher, or if you just want to feel better about YOU, reach out. It will be a grand step in developing an outstanding self image.

“Nature yields her most profound secrets to the person who is determined to uncover them.” Napoleon Hill
I love older classic movies from the 1940-1950’s. I find the acting and stories so compelling. There were no special effects to entertain you, so the dialog had to be intriguing, intelligent and emotionally gripping. There was’t even any color to enhance the scenes so using shadows and playing with angles left much to your imagination.
One movie I watch last week was Bird Man of Alcatraz, a true story based on the life of Robert Franklin Stroud. He was incarcerated for 54 years of his life with 43 of those years in solitary confinement. In that time he became a respected ornithologist (bird expert) and educated himself in many subjects.
It made me think of what we are capable of when we join forces with this universal intelligence. We don’t have to go to solitary confinement to uncover our talents and gifts, but we do need to sacrifice something of a lower nature for a higher one.
When we go into the solitude of our minds, nature will begin to reveal her secrets to you too!
Are you ready for a revaluation?

Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
Don Miquel Ruiz- The Four Agreements
This lesson was one of the most difficult for me and I believe most others as well to learn. The fear of criticism is one of the greatest fears. That is why people would rather die than speak on stage. I used to be petrified to speak in public. My voice would crackle and my body would shake from fear. However now I absolutely love it! By facing your fear, it will loss its hold on you. If people criticize you for doing something that isn’t to their liking, it’s their issues, not yours. They owe it, not you!
Be true to you and give no attention to the people how put you down. Give your best, be your best and let the rest fall away. Own your power!!!
