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.

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.

We are spiritual beings having a human experience. We came from some place and are going to return somewhere. Amazingly, our DNA is a shaped like a spiral stairway reaching for the heavens. The more we can stay connected to that spiritual part of ourselves the more understanding, awareness, and consciousness will flow to and through us guiding our lives. One of the ways to keep the channel open is through the intellectual faculty of intuition. I’ve heard it said that if prayer is when we talk to God, intuition is when God talks to us. It’s that quiet whisper echoing in the core of our soul, always letting us know what is best for our well being.
Most people have either not been taught how to properly use this facility or have ignored their feelings when intuition has been trying to speak to us. It has therefore been laying dormant, just waiting to be turned on, when ever we are ready and willing to listen. The doorway to begin to open up your intuitive abilities, is through imagination. Ask for guidance and envision a soul image, like an angel, or a fairy, even an owl, or (what ever feels good), to assist you.
Then sit in silence and relax the mind. Our mental chatter often gets in the way of a clear connection, just like static on a radio channel. Once the flow of energy is calm and focused, the signal will be clear to receive the guidance from your soul. Begin to pay attention to your feelings; they are your compass, directing you along your journey to a more fulfilling life. Always remember, you are a spiritual being, and that to reclaim your connection, if it has been severed, takes practice, just like a muscle that has not been used becomes atrophied. Soon you will begin to awaken to your true self.
If you need help getting in touch with your intuition, let’s talk!

“You have to count on living every single day in a way you believe will make you feel good about your life…”
How many times to we compromise our happiness for someone else? We give our energy away to make other people happy or do things that zaps our precious life. Then at the end of the day we are feeling exhausted, angry or depressed.
That was my modus operandi for many years until I became aware that I was responsible for my own happiness and joy. I was actually teaching people how to treat me. I was a people pleaser.
We all have so much energy, and if you are giving it away to easily, like money you will be broke. You will become down and out and wonder why your feeling so awful.
True happiness and joy come from honoring your values and what makes you feel good. Be good to yourself. If you give yourself away to easily not only do you feel bad but your no good for anyone else either!
Take a few minutes every day and connect with yourself. Breathe! Do something everyday that makes you feel good! Take a walk, listen to something inspirational or what ever that thing is that lifts you up and feels good.
Think of how much more valuable you will be when your bank account is full of happiness !

I am in complete awe when I observe pictures from the Hubble telescope. The images are so fantastic that I can’t help wonder about the energy that it took to create such magnificence.This substance is alive and conscious. This is the same substance that creates the things in our personal lives as well. We live in a cosmic matrix were we can manifest anything. When we begin to tap into the mind of this energy we become in harmony with the quantum realm of creation to become the alchemists in our lives. We do this by thinking according to the principles of divine intelligence. It is practice and focus to keep your mind on the things that you desire in spite of what the appearance may look like on the outside. If you want to understand how to communicate with this infinite intelligence you must learn to speak the same language as this source energy. We do this through our thoughts. When you align your thoughts with the great and powerful God, you will be able to dwell into the Master Mind. Form images in your mind of what you desire and hold those thoughts with belief, conviction, and passion. Then, listen to your intuition and follow the course of action that directs you to your creation. God is working to and through you. Never forget this truth!
Do you desire to tap into the creative process and form beautiful images in your mind?

I feel our eyes can be both a blessing and a curse. We all want to leave a great first impression with others when we are going on a job interview, going on a first date or any encounter that will influence our presence. How well we look, speak and act can either leave people thinking highly of us or not. However, sometimes our eyes can deceive us. We can be quick to judge and see only what we perceive as faults in someones appearance.
Observations leaves room for looking deeper and beyond the outward appearance. We are already closing ourselves off to someone when we judge how they look. If we were visual impaired, what would be the first impression then? Would we listen with keen ears to hear their qualifications and how well they are a match with your company? Would you be more aware of how you feel around their presence? What would be the guiding light to help determine if someone is leaving a great first impression? The gift of sight is a marvelous blessing, however we must use this gift wisely and not judge someone strictly on outward appearances. Their energy, habits, values and actions need to speak louder than their looks. Leaving a great first impression is important but do not overlook the person hiding under the mask. Observation is strength and judgement is weakness. Do not let your eyes deceive you.

“Until thought is linked to purpose, there is no intelligent accomplishment.” James Allen
Thoughts are fleeting, they come and go. We think of quite a lot of them through out the course of the day. But is there intelligence behind them? Thoughts like; What am I going to eat for dinner, I need to bring my jacket to the cleaners or any of these kind of thoughts are not true thinking. They are just memorized behavioral patterns. To think clearly is like lifting weights. At first you begin with solving puzzles or maybe creating something small but new, then you can go to the next level with heavier weights, and move into a more focused and sustained level of thinking. You become consciously aware of your thoughts and stop reacted to the stimuli around you and respond with a sense of purpose. Thoughts can be likened to currency of energy. Where are you investing your time and energy? If your not thinking clearly, you are losing energy and just like money you will become bankrupt if you spend them on things that are not giving you a good return. So if you desire to think clearly and have more energy, be careful of the thoughts you think. If you want compounded interest, I suggest you invest in a coach to guide you in the right direction. All the rest will fall into place.
