The Holidays are here and will be gone before you know it. There are many people who go all out and decorate, cook, shop, entertain, go to many parties and do all sorts things for Christmas. Then there are those who don’t. I used to go all out during the Holiday’s but have decided to scale back tremendously!
I want to celebrate more from my heart this year then by all the trimmings. I want to feel the spirit rather than go buy things. But that’s just me. There is no right way or wrong way to enjoy Christmas. This year I am taking the time to reflect and rejoice the feeling of the season in my heart. There are so many people who are hurting and in pain. I want to send abundant love, peace and serenity to the world.
That is the gift I am giving this year. So however you decide to celebrate Christmas this year, please keep your heart open to give peace and love. This is what the world needs more than anything these days!
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, with love!

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. …
We have the ability to connect with anybody, anywhere at any time, however we seem to be losing the ability to communicate. People are feeling more isolated then ever before. Loneliness is a feeling of despair, powerlessness, abandonment, shame, depression and many other emotions that keep you locked into believing your not enough.
To compensate these feelings of loneliness, you might entertain yourself by getting hooked and absorbed into your cell phone. Everyone seems to be doing it. We can keep our heads down and get sucked into the vacuum of a screen that projects what ever fantasy, illusion or fictitious image that draws us into its void.
Don’t get me wrong, it is a fabulous way to connect if we use it wisely. Communication is about coming together, to commune. To look into someone eyes and connect on a visceral level. To talk and share your words and feelings so you can share experiences, information, discoveries and explore, create, expand, learn and grow. We can not do this alone. We do this by communication. We must begin to bridge the gap and come together rather than pull away.
If you are ready to begin living your best life for 2019, please sign up and awaken to YOUR GREATEST possibilities!

During the Holidays, it might be challenging for many to feel happy or peaceful when you get together with family members due to past or present hurts and emotional pain. Emotions may come up that cause you shut down, get angry, or feel betrayed. Old wounds surface if someone says or does something that triggers you. It isn’t easy dealing with the people closest to us at times. They are the ones that can press your buttons and know what buttons to press to get a reaction out of you.
Your feelings are your best guidance system. They are there to let you know exactly what you need to heal inside of you. When they surface, pay attention to them. Don’t dismiss them by drowning them with to much alcohol, numbing yourself with drugs or stuffing yourself with to much food. Instead, read an inspirational passage in a book, watch an uplifting movie, volunteer for a few hours to those less fortunate, take a walk or whatever brings joy into your heart. If you need to dismiss yourself from the gathering to protect yourself, that too is OK.
Thanksgiving is about giving thanks, being grateful and appreciating what you do have and feeling good will connect you with those emotions.
May your Thanksgiving be filled with peace, love and joy!

The heart is the perfection of the whole organism. Therefore, the principles of the power of perception and the soul’s ability to nourish itself must lie in the heart.
Aristotle, philosopher, and scientist, 384-322 BC
Stress, anxiety, frustration, overwhelm and dis-ease are at an all time high. Life is moving so fast and change is happening so rapidly that if you don’t have the tools, strategies and techniques to navigate through all the uncertainty you will wind up feeling totally out of balance. Your heart is more than an amazing pump circulating blood throughout your body. We have discovered that it is a brain that sends signals to your head letting you know when you are out of alignment by increasing your heart beat, raising your blood pressure and downloading stress hormones that flood your body producing all kinds of negative feelings, thoughts and toxins.
90-95% of all illnesses are stress related. That’s HUGE!!! Really, I can feel when I am getting out of my natural rhythm of joy and happiness. I’m sure you can too. Allow your heart to open. Take some deep slow breaths and slow down. Focus on someone you love and you will begin to sense your heart and mind getting into a coherent state. Practice this often. The more you do the more joy and health you will bring into your life.

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”—Confucius
What are you capable of? Do really know? Can you let go of the life you think you ought to live for the life that is waiting for you to fulfill? You see we all have a burning passion within us, ready to be unleashed, explored and discovered. But it will never be revealed to you until you allow yourself to let go of the known and step into the unknown.
It is in your greatest fears that this secret is hidden. Facing them will uncover your strengths, vulnerability and courage. When your heart opens and connects with your spirit, you will know that nothing is impossible.
When you lift and embrace the enormity of what is possible, you will shift and believe in yourself like never before. Each time you take a step out of your comfort zone and shift into the blueprint of the unknown, magical things being to happen. It is as if the universe coalesces to bring you any possibility. All you must do is surrender and be open. A new life is waiting for you if you are ready to lift and shift. Are you ready?

In Africa there is a concept known as ‘ubuntu’ – the profound sense that we are human only through the humanity of others; that if we are to accomplish anything in this world it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievement of others.
“One day, a western anthropologist went to Africa to study the social behavior of an indigenous tribe. He proposed a game to the children and they willingly agreed to be part of it. He put a basket filled with fruits underneath a tree and told the children that whoever would reach the basket first would win the whole basket and could eat the fruits all by him- or herself.
He lined them all up and raised his hand to give the start signal. Ready. Set. Go!
The children took each other’s hands and started running together. They all reached the basket at the same time. Then they sat down in a big circle and enjoyed the fruits together, laughing and smiling all the time.
The anthropologist could not believe what he saw and he asked them why they had waited for each other as one could have taken the whole basket all for him- or herself.
The children shook their heads and replied, “Ubuntu, how can one of us be happy if all the others are sad?”
What if we all lived our lives with this in mind? What if you opened your heart and mind to embracing the human in humanity? Our world will change when we realize that we are all a part of each other. We live in a holographic universe. There is no separation between you and I.
Call to action: Do one thing today that benefits someone else. If you could do one thing that uplifts another person, not only will you feel so good, you will be paying an act of kindness forward…….. Spread the love!
