The quieter you become the more you are able to hear.
Last Friday, I took the train into New York to meet up with some friends and visit the Met. They are celebrating by having an exhibit of the fiftieth anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing that took place on July 20,1969. It was fascinating and I highly recommend seeing it. But it got me thinking, of how absolutely quiet it must be in space. and the absence of any sound.
To get to the museum, I walked a few blocks and then took the subway there. The noise level on the streets was off the charts! Between the sirens, trucks and cars beeping there horns, and the stimulus from other things was over whelming. Thank God, I am able to stay grounded and be aware of the noise without getting sucked into all, but, I gotta say that I couldn’t wait to get out of the city. It can rattle your nervous system to a point were you just become numb and addicted to it all.
We are not meant to live like this. It isn’t healthy. Yes, you can learn to adjust to all the noise but you will never get in touch with your authentic self if you aren’t taking the time to be in nature. Going to the moon has shown mankind how vital and precious our beautiful blue planet really is. Connect to Mother Earth, embrace all the wonders and the natural resources that she has to offer. And most importantly, listen to the silence.

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!

I think one of the biggest challenges people go through is that their too hard on themselves. We beat ourselves up with guilt, shame and other negative emotions. Why do we do this to ourselves? It is because over the years, people have spilled their negative energy on you, their attitudes, their beliefs, their unhealthy self -esteem. Where did they get it? The same way you have been getting it. People have spilled it on them. And on on it goes until you STOP being to hard on yourself.
I should have done it better! I should have passed that test! I shouldn’t have ate that box of chocolates! Some times we screw up, it’s OK! The more we go through this cycle the longer we stay in.
When we learn to love ourselves and embrace our strengths and our weaknesses, we can stop knocking ourselves down and raise up.
We are spiritual beings having this human experience. Being human is to enjoy and celebrate life. To celebrate You! Celebrate being here now! Celebrate all the good things that you’ve done and are continuing to accomplish. Celebrate your lessons in life. Celebrate the little things.
You do not have to try harder, be better, be perfect, or anything other than being YOU!
Your good enough and a child of God! You are a gift, so celebrate that!
Enjoy this video and get inspired to Celebrate Life!

” Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” Theodore Roosevelt
Creativity is a powerful way to celebrate who we are. It is a spiritual energy that nourishes our vitality. It replaces negative thinking with positive action.
How often do you put your creativity on hold? Between work, family and other obligations your creativity gets put on the back burner. We get stuck in the grind of just living rather that creating a life. Years ago when I was under stress or had too many things on my to do list, I would forget to add joy and fun into my activities. Now I know that what ever I am doing, where ever I am or have, I can add the element of creativity to it.
I spice things up. Even if I’m washing the dishes, I find a way to make it more enjoyable. I will get in a rhythm or if I’m cleaning I will dance. If I’m stuck in traffic, I listen to an audible book. If i’m working on my business, I try to take on a new approach.
Everything we do, can be a spark for creative energy to emerge. Our commitment to life is to tap into the creative energy that is inside us and all around us.
