” Every time I sit down to play, I learn something new.”
The word play, has such a light and fun vibe when you say the word. As apposed to the word work, which has a much more serious connotation behind its energy. Children love to play and are able to take the simplest of objects, use their imaginations and make it into something totally different. Then we go to school and the playing stops.
What happens? Playing is essential to learning. If you are in an environment where there is stress, tension, pressure or any sort of feeling that isn’t relaxed your ability to learn is lessened. Neuro-science has shown that when your brain senses that it isn’t safe you can not be in a creative mind-set. It is actually in a survival one. Once you don’t feel safe, there is no trust, and where there is no trust, you shut down.
Playing is essential to learning. As adults, we go to work. We don’t say we go to play. Why do we say we play an instrument, or we play sports, rather than work a violin, or work at baseball? What if you started playing more? What if you started having more fun? What if you started using your imagination and played with ideas to create something new?
The more we bring back the arts in school, in our places of work and in our homes, the more we can learn, and the more we learn, the more fun we have, and the more fun we have the more peaceful we become. Who’s ready to play?

“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”
We live in a world of instant gratification. If our computers or cell phones aren’t working at lighting speed you might get frustrated pretty quickly. ( I know that is one of my pet peeves.)
Your patience might be running thin in all areas of your life. However if you learn to wait for something to come to you, you will be amazed at what reveals itself to you, when you relax, envision and allow the process of manifestation to unfold. Really, take some time to focus on what it is you want in an easy, unattached way. Just allow your imagination to become unleashed.
I know every time I have tried to force or get tense about the outcome of something I’ve wanted, it doesn’t happen. But when I play with the vision and see myself in the picture with all my senses, wow, I am amazed at the results I get.
So if you’re looking to make 2019 your best year yet. Create it, direct it, produce it and be the actor in your movie and then watch it unfold.
Here’s to your amazing life!!!

Here we are. Another year around the sun. I know for me the time has seemed to go super fast. It is like a blink of an eye. If you aren’t conscious of where, how and with whom you choose to spend our time, it will drift by without your full attention. That is why it is so important to intentionally create what it is you want in our life.
This is a great time to write down what you want to create for the next year. Why not write down 100 aspirations? That may seem like a lot, but once your creative juices start to flow, you will be surprised as to how many more things you can think of that you want to be, do or have. It is a great exercise to stay focused on the positive too!
So, find a nice quite spot where you have no distractions, get some paper, pencils, colored pencils or whatever you feel that will stir up your imagination and design your future.
If you want 2019 to be different for you, than you must do something different. Set your mind free, and explore the infinite possibilities that are just waiting for you. Now is your time, but only if you take the time to make it yours!

“Nature yields her most profound secrets to the person who is determined to uncover them.” Napoleon Hill
I love older classic movies from the 1940-1950’s. I find the acting and stories so compelling. There were no special effects to entertain you, so the dialog had to be intriguing, intelligent and emotionally gripping. There was’t even any color to enhance the scenes so using shadows and playing with angles left much to your imagination.
One movie I watch last week was Bird Man of Alcatraz, a true story based on the life of Robert Franklin Stroud. He was incarcerated for 54 years of his life with 43 of those years in solitary confinement. In that time he became a respected ornithologist (bird expert) and educated himself in many subjects.
It made me think of what we are capable of when we join forces with this universal intelligence. We don’t have to go to solitary confinement to uncover our talents and gifts, but we do need to sacrifice something of a lower nature for a higher one.
When we go into the solitude of our minds, nature will begin to reveal her secrets to you too!
Are you ready for a revaluation?

When you are in London England and ride the tube (The British name for subway), they alert you to mind the gap, (the space between the platform and the train).
When we set a goal for ourselves there is also a gap. The space between where you are presently and where you desire to be. So the question is how do you bridge the gap? Is it as easy as stepping into it? By taking the time every day to meditate on what you want and imaging the outcome you begin to bridge the gap. When you are able to bring your mind and body into the experience of bringing the goal into fruition, the space between gets closer and closer. Using your senses to fully engage in the picture and then aligning yourself with action steps will create the desired outcome.
As the New Year approaches, take the time and imagine what it is that you want to be, do or have? Mind the gap. Feel it in your heart and see it in your mind and soon you will have stepped into your future with it.
Are you ready to cross your gap? Need help to mind the gap? Let’s talk, so that you can bridge the gap.
Wishing Everyone a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!!!!

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!

IQ is the measure of someones intellect. EQ is the measure of someones emotional intelligence and CQ is the measure of someones ability to communicate intelligently. But what really makes a genius a genius? Albert Einstein was a genius. Stephen Hawkins is a genius. Michelangelo and Leonardo deVinci were also geniuses in their own right. Marie Curie, Virginia Wolf and Ludwig van Beethoven were considered genius, and the list goes on…
According to Websters dictionary Genius is defined as: exceptional intellectual or creative power or other natural ability.
Is it something in the brain that makes a genius? Is it intelligence, creativity, perseverance, or simply luck? Is it something from the divine?
Just because you are really smart and have a high IQ does not make you a genius. Through my studies and understanding, EQ and CQ are just as important as IQ for getting the results you want in life. However that still will not make you a genius.
What if we can nurture someone to become a genius? Maybe the more we allow creativity, imagination and create a nurturing environment to become part of a child’s life the more they can develop their brain to become geniuses? Through neuroscience we are getting closer to understanding what parts of the brain get activated when we use our creative skills.
I believe that you must have a strong purpose, have passion, perseverance and determination to unleash the genius inside of you! You also need support!!! Someone who believes in YOU!
If you need a coach, hire one, it will be the best investment you can make! Don’t be a smarty pants,thinking you know it all. Be a genius!!
