It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do. Moliere
This is such a powerful quote that made me think of all the things I am responsible for. I love my work and feel a deep sense of responsibility to be a great coach. I invest a lot of time, money and energy to improve myself every day. However I feel that being responsible is also about speaking my truth, standing in my truth and stepping into my power.
In the past, I was a people pleaser so I would compromise myself for the sake of others.
That wasn’t being responsible to myself. The first person I must be accountable to is me. To stand in my own power and truly be my best, I must understand my values take responsibility for them. This is being and giving your best. I coach many people who are learning this as well. Learning to say NO and speaking their truth and living their best life is the responsible way.
How about you? Are you ready to stand in your power? If you need help let’s talk.
Here is my Tedx talk to watch too.

We are not here to curse the darkness but to light the candle that can guide us thru that darkness to a safe and sane future. John F. Kennedy
The world has gotten brighter and brighter. It is difficult to really find complete darkness any more. The night sky is veiled with the lights from buildings, homes, and so many sources. In one sense it has helped us progress and feel safer at night, however it has also hindered our connection with the mystical wisdom of the cosmos. It is there that we find the answers to what our souls are questing for. Darkness matters. When we see the natural illumination from the heavens above, we can light the way inward into our hearts.
Far to many people are depressed, even in a world where we have lit all of the darkness corners. Why? We look down instead of looking up! Go into the darkness, connect to the night sky and find the magnificence of where you actually came from.
When I coach people, I help them see their dark side as well as their light. It is there that they get to see their wholeness and get in touch with a part of themselves that was hidden. When you reveal your darkness your light will shine even brighter!
Here some beauty of the night light for your enjoyment.

I was at the airport the other day waiting for my flight to leave when I engaged in a conversation with a retired teacher. I love to meet new people and find out about them. She was telling me how she would love to play Mozart in the morning to her students. She said that it created such a peaceful mood in her class. Classical music has proven to relax and create a profound learning effect on the minds of children. So why isn’t it played in every school? What if each day students walked into their classroom listening to classical music? Can this change the brain waves of the children?
Children as well as adults learn when we are in an environment of feeling safe and nurtured. The prefrontal cortex of the brain is receptive to creating new ideas and willing to open up and share. When we feel threatened and fearful, the brain shuts down and we go into into a fight or flight protective mode. So which environment do you want your children exposed to? Teachers having guns or playing Mozart in the morning?
Raising happy, healthy smart and and peaceful children is the result of proven science. Creating an environment that promotes this is just implementing it. Let’s play Mozart rather than arm the teachers with guns.
Here is some Mozart to start your day!

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. Jim Rohn
I was having a conversation with a dear friend of mine the other day and we were discussing what matters most to us. We were asking each other questions that were really creating us to open ourselves up to look at what were the things that we really care about. What does it mean to live an excellent life? What is a good life? What do you value?What do you still want to accomplish? …
We are never to young or old to design our lives. If we don’t design our lives we will drift, and most likely your going to wind up shipwrecked. So why not take the time to ask yourself some questions. Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.
It’s about disrupting yourself and looking for ways to improve and master a skill, talent or gift. If you are having difficulty knowing what you want to design, then hire a coach. They can uncover parts of yourself that you can’t see.
Rising above will help you get a better and broader view of the bigger picture, and there you can begin to design from a whole new perspective. So design or drift? It is your choose. Which will you chose?

I am taking a course right now on Emotional Intelligence. I have taken this course before however I want to see how I can improve in the areas that still trigger my emotions. I still have plenty of room to grow! My emotional triggers are usually small things like my cell phone not working properly or my computer acting up. Then again I have some family members that can press certain buttons that try to stir things up.
What I find is missing when I work only with my EQ is my SQ or my spiritual intelligence. Without considering how this effects my EQ is leaving out a huge part of the equation. We are body, mind and soul. Therefore IQ (intelligence) EQ (emotional) and SQ (spiritual). When I coach people, I have discovered that most of their struggles are between the emotional and spiritual realms.
When I help people become aware of this missing link we open up the possibilities for healing their emotions, as well as tapping into intelligence’s that they never even were conscious of before. They increase their energy levels, productivity, health and happiness.
Here are 3 easy things to do to become aware and integrate your EQ and SQ.
1- When you are noticing your feelings, ask for guidance. Just see if you can quite your mind and listen.
2- Get comfortable in silence. Allow yourself the pleasure of just being. Feel the energy of the life force course through your body and mind without any judgement.
3- When something or someone presses your buttons, before you react, put your hand over your heart and breath.
These practices and more take time. Need some guidance? Let’s have a conversation. Call me for a FREE consultation.

Creating the life you want requires a shift in consciousness. The old way of doing this was work hard and you will have a good life. Or just get a good secure job and your life will be good. Well, that doesn’t quite cut it in the world today. There are no long term secure jobs and working hard does not guarantee a good life.
I have learned that envisioning the life I desire and meditating on it will bring me much more success that trying to change the outside world. All change starts from within. It is a shift in focus and perception. You must go into the nothingness and create the something. From no where to now here!
The most difficult part of doing this is blocking out a chunk of time every day to go into the quantum field of possibilities and imagine the life you desire. See it as if it has already manifested. Feel yourself in the picture, and be so grateful for it is yours! Every thing is created twice, once in the mind and then into the physical form.
Need help creating your passion and purpose. Give me a call! You can life your best life!!!

What is the new normal? We hear this term a lot on the news lately. With raging fires out on the West Coast, mud slides, category 5 hurricanes decimating Puerto Rico and other parts of the world and other climate changes, it seems like this new normal is rather bleak. And now we have missile alerts frightening us into believing we are goners? How are these horrific things impacting how we live? What is normal anyway? Do we really just accept this as the new normal?
It seems like everything has become distorted, upside down or backwards. This new normal that we are being confronted with is all about living in a more fear based world. That is not what I would want the new normal to be. Let’s face it, everything changes. Nothing stays the same. Change is the one constant we can count on. However I envision a world that is evolving toward good change, positive change and progress change. We are either constructing or destructing. If we believe that we are helpless and have no power over our thoughts, feelings and action, we will be the victim of these fear based changes. There are many people doing tremendous work toward good things to improve our world. When we stay in faith and have the courage to be the change we want to see in the world we can begin to see the new normal as moving toward peace, compassion, kindness and love.
That diversity can be recognized as a powerful asset rather than a separation to divide. Let’s open our minds and hearts to all. Let’s be the change we want to see in the world.
How do you see yourself being a contributor to the new normal? What can you do to make a positive difference?
If you need some help to find out what your purpose and vision is, lets talk?
