Every Day Is Extra

September 13, 2018

 

Life is short, and if we enjoy every day, then we will be happy no matter what happens or what changes along the way.

Gretchen Bleiler

Former Senator John Kerry’s memoir was recently released entitled “Every Day is Extra”. In it he writes about the struggles he had during his life and how he was able to forge ahead with a positive attitude, courage and faith. He faced many setbacks, family illnesses, crisis and tough decisions.

Let’s face it, life can be tough at times. Not every day is going to be a great day. Sometimes you may have days, months or even years of challenging times. Maybe you are being faced with a family member diagnosed with a serious illness, addiction or crisis. Maybe we ourselves are confronting a personal battle. I know what its like. Both my parents were Holocaust survivors and I have a daughter with addiction issues. It ain’t always easy.

However, if you wake up every day and realize that every day is extra, that every moment is another chance to create and do something better than the day before, you will be able to navigate uncertainties with faith and courage.

 

Look, no one gets out alive. Your time here is limited and you will be confronted with tough days. The storms, droughts, and other unexpected mishaps will come. But with an attitude of gratitude, knowing that every day is extra, you can turn any rainy day into a a day of appreciation and goodness.

What can you do to appreciate every moment?

Lift Your Attitude

September 6, 2018

I’ve come to realize that my attitude will dictate every result I get in my life. I’m sure you heard this message too growing up.  Things like; if you had better attitude, you could get better grades in school, or, with an attitude like that you can go to your room, right?  The only thing is no one ever told us how to get a better attitude. What is attitude anyway?  Well the dictionary describes it as;

1-A position of the body or manner of carrying oneself, indicative of mood or condition.

2-A state of mind or feeling about some matter.

3-A way of behaving; disposition.

In other words, my thoughts, feelings, and actions must all be aligned in a positive way, for me to be perceived and received as authentic. When this happens, I will radiate with confidence.

To do this, I have to be willing and able to honestly look at the results I am presently getting in my life. I know that at the center of my being is love, truth and a life that is connected to a higher intelligence. I also know I have gotten mixed messages about myself and the world as I was growing up.  These negative messages have formed my behaviors and beliefs.  Even though they didn’t feel good, I grew up not realizing how these limiting beliefs affected my attitude and everything in my life.

Now I know that I can change my perception about those beliefs. I choose to align with my higher self and develop an attitude of gratitude. Once I begin to make that shift, my whole world will reflect these results back to me, as a mirror reflects an image. Choosing to take responsibility for your attitude will improve the quality of your relationships which will bring unimaginable abundance into your life. Learn how you can tap into your truth and form a positive attitude.


Tough Times

May 24, 2018

“You’re going to go through tough times- that’s life. But I say, nothing happens to you, it happens for you. See the positive in negative events.”                                                                                         Joel Osteen

Life can get pretty tough sometimes.  It can get dirty, messy and so damn hard. Many people are struggling with feelings that are pulling them down. Having a spiritual practice is vital when the going gets tough.

Recently I have been sadden by the death of a dear friend and another one that is fighting for his life, after a diagnose with leukemia. One thing after the next has set back is healing process. It is difficult to witness love ones hurting. I took in another friend into my home who is going through a tough time and I have a coaching client who also just lost her mother and nephew from a drug overdose.

I am so happy and grateful to have the faith that everything is for our highest good. I meditate every morning to stay connect to source energy. I take impeccable care of body by walking, dancing, gardening and other activities to stay healthy, I journal every morning, read inspirational books and listen to things that motivate me. Without this practice, it is easy to sink into a funky state of mind.

Even when you don’t feel like it, that is when it is most important to reach out, stay connected and have a practice that will give you the strength to pull yourself out of any situation that seems dire.  You can get through it.


No Where To Now Here

January 25, 2018

 

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!!!


Don’t Look Up!

August 24, 2017

Actually do look up, however with protective glasses! Were you able to witness the solar eclipse on August 21st?

What a fabulous time to be alive! With all that is going on in the world that divides us, this brings us all together.  With all the turmoil, tension, stress and distraction, the commonality of our humanity unites us. We are reminded of how vulnerable, precious and fragile we really are. We get a chance to look up in awe and wonder. A day to  get our heads out from under our iphones to gaze up at the stars.

It connects us to our primal ancestry and the future evolution of mankind.   Years ago, we were frightened when this phenomena occurred. We thought all kinds of superstitious things were causing it.  We didn’t have the awareness that we do now. Through understanding we now know that this rare event is mathematically calculated through the rotation of the earth and the moon. We can predict eclipses to a fraction of a second! The moon is 400 times smaller then the sun and 400 times the distance to the sun. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

 

When we look up with gratitude and awe at the order of the universe we connect to the infinite possibilities that is empowering our lives.

Reach for the stars in your life. Look up, wonder, question and explore. If you only land on the moon be grateful for the quest!  Here’s to your extraordinary life!


Give Your Best

November 16, 2016

give-your-bestThere is a subtle shift in pushing yourself to be the  best in the world and allowing yourself to being your best for the world. This is not an easy shift. Because when we concentrate on being the best in the world, it is easy to get caught up with all the trappings that are associated with giving your talents and abilities, such as money and recognition.

In contrast, when our efforts are devoted to being the best for the world, we approach our tasks with an attitude of service and grace. Our perception widens, as we are not thinking only of ourselves. Instead, we focus on using our talents and energy as best we can.

It is an inward shift and you will always be giving more with an attitude of gratitude.  It is an energetic connection with the infinite source of abundance and you, providing service to the world.

I was honored and privileged to be among the most luminary minds the last two days that are shifting the consciousness of the planet and being the best for the world!

Instead of asking what’s in it for me? Ask, How may I serve?

If you desire to be a part of this shift and awaking to spread awareness, call me and let’s have a conversation on how you too can be of service?

Pay it forward!


Prayer Works

April 8, 2015

Life is a prayer. I love this statement; When life is rough pray, when life is great, pray. I have come into the habit of praying every day. Actually, I practice prayer without ceasing. Which means, I am conscious of my thoughts, which are my prayers. Every morning, I wake up and ask God how may I be of service to my highest good. Every evening, I do the same. I feel and have come to know that prayer is not just in times of trouble, but also when times are good.  It is raising our consciousness with a deep feeling of gratitude that will connect us to God, and this is where are prayers are answered. Pray every day, even when times are good. Pray is a state of mind.

Develop the habit of prayer in your life. Be vigilant of your thoughts and what you are thinking. Your spiritual life will soon be richer, which will manifest into your physical world. So always remember, when life is rough pray, when life is great, pray too!pray
