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?

We all know the story of the Empires new clothes, right? Were he paraded down his village with no clothes on and no one wanted to confront him and tell him that he was stark naked. It took the innocence of a young boy to yell this out, that broke the trance. How do you handle confrontation? For most people this can be very difficult. If there is a problem that needs to be addressed, avoiding it will only make the matter worse. So what is the best way to handle it? Having a clear sense of how to do this will create a win-win situation or a win-loss outcome. Confrontation is not about I’m right and you’re wrong. It is about being direct, clear, honest and sincere. When you align your tone of voice, words and intention to communication what you feel in a healthy way, the message gets received in a non-aggressive manner.
It is important to confront the behavior or an action that is unfavorable. If not, nothing changes and it will get worse. Healthy confrontation takes emotional stability and responsibility. In order for our world to change in a positive direction we need people to speak up and confront the issues that are allowing so much destructive behavior to go on.
So the next time you want to lash out or ignore the situation, find the courage within yourself to be the one who confronts the problem in a healthy way so it can get resolved.
Need help in learning a healthy dialog to communicate, let’s talk!
Here are 10 Guidelines for Positive Confrontation!

This past weekend I was at a two day seminar were we fully engaged in learning, growing and expanding our minds. It was amazing!!! There is always more to know if you jump in the game of life and give it your all. You just never know where you can go if you jump and trust that your parachute will open. I’ve always been one to go for things and take a risk if I really wanted something, and I did it again this weekend. How about you? Do you believe in yourself enough to invest in yourself, or are you playing it safe? You must let go of the familiar to allow for new things in your life to come in. It will never happen if you do not jump and experience the free fall of the unknown. It’s like playing in the minor leagues and now stepping up, and playing in the major league. I took a huge leap of faith and trust that I will strike a home run . Life is all about expression and expansion, and I want to always go to a higher level. What is it that is holding you back from jumping into life? If you want more, than you have to give more! Just jump and the world will give you more!!!
Need help with taking a risk? Call Monica today and find your faith and courage to take the jump!!! Invest in yourself!!!

What does the future hold? We are living in times of massive change. Every day seems to be a new challenge. The world is changing rapidly,and if we do not embrace these changes with open arms, we are setting ourselves up for all the unwanted events that will penetrate and infiltrate our minds and body with a vengeance. What the future holds for you is what you make of it. If you resist the changes and continue to live your life from a sense of fear, scarcity and anger that is exactly the kind of world that is going to manifest. What does the future hold? We can all contribute something good to the world. We can all hold a space for the goodness in the world. I hear people say, this world is crazy! It is if you believe it is. There are an infinite number of wonderful things about our world too. If you focus your attention on the gruesome headlines of the news, yes, the world can appear out of control and crazy. That is exactly what the media wants you to believe and feel. Fear controls people. If you look for the good things that are happening and begin to contribute to adding goodness to the world, you will see the changes. We can navigate uncertainty with faith and courage when you trust in yourself and live with love in your heart, rather than fear and violence. So, what does the future hold? The future is what we all make if it. Create, love, and give of yourself to a world that is only waiting for you to participate. Ask and you shall recieve.

Do you get overwhelmed by all the people, places and things in your life? Many people are relying more and more on medication, alcohol, and illegal substances to calm their nerves and ease their mind. However, all of these external things are a quick fix to the problem and bandage to the real cause of what’s really going on. A Panic attack, is a feeling in your mind and body that overtakes your ability to function in a healthy way. It is as if your mind is being taking over by bandits. There’s mutiny in your mind, and you are wrestling with the enemy;yourself. The chatter, confusion, and sheer panic that is expressed in your body can feel like every nerve is on fire. So, how do you stop the madness? You must first understand that your conscious and subconscious mind are at odds. Next, you have to become aware of the negative emotions that have been stored in your subconscious mind and release them through practice, meditation, and techniques to calm and center the mind. There is help. In today’s busy world, you can find the peace within to withstand any storm that might be ragging outside of you. Once you find this stillness, this center of pure consciousness, you will transmute panic into faith and courage. It is possible and you can change your thoughts, feelings, and actions to live a peaceful life.

I love reading inspirational books. Many of my books have the word power in them. The Power of the Subconscious Mind, Power verses Force, Your Invisible Power, The Will to Power, Power Through Constructive Thinking, and the list goes on. The power that is refered to in all of these books is our ability to create our lives the way we choose. We have an infinite supply of energy that when we learn how to tap into this reservoir, will provide us with unlimited power. It in not power to control anything or anyone. It is empowerment. It comes from within and can never be taken away from us once we learn that it is comes from an infinite source. It begins with our thinking. Our thoughts can elevate our lives to heights we can dream possible or take us down into the depths of despair. Thinking is the highest function we are capable of. When we open our minds and hearts to this awareness nothing can through you off course. Yes, you will have set backs, however you will know that these are temporary when you keep your thoughts focused on your vision. You will be able to navigate uncertainty with faith and courage. We are living in times of great chance. These times call for empowered people with a vision of hope, love, and peace. Become empowered by going within the depth of your soul to discover your power to help change the world.

Courage, defined by the dictionary, means; 1- The state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger and overcome fear. 2- Heart; mind, disposition. Heart, as the seat of feeling . I love how the definition describes it as really about coming from the heart.
Courage is not about ego, it’s about feeling your fear and taking that leap of faith anyway. I know in my life, I am faced with challenging situations many times. If I quite my mind, ask God for help, then do the thing that I think I can not do, I am able to gracefully confront my fear and overcome the challenge. I become courageous. Every time I am able to take that step forward, a gain more and confidence in myself, and know that all will be provided for. It is an act of love, and love is all there really is. So, the next time your confronted with a difficult challenge, and aren’t sure which way to turn, you can navigate uncertainty with faith and courage. Trust in The infinite intelligence that is surrounding you always, and allow your heart to open to the answers. Act with courage, and you will always come from love.
