The Black Lotus Flower

By | Awareness, mindshift, Personal Growth | No Comments

I was recently participating in a guided visualization exercise, led by my friend Lisa Berkovitz, intended to energize and amplify the actualization of an intention. After choosing a specific intention, Lisa took us through a quick process to connect with our higher selves. Then we imagined ourselves standing in a column of golden light with our palms cupped to receive a symbol from Source that would serve to amplify our intentions. As I looked down, a black lotus flower appeared in…

Relationship Lessons learned on the tennis court

By | Awareness, happines, Love, Personal Growth | No Comments

Last week I went to play tennis with my husband and son. We were playing “French Tennis” – 2 against 1. My husband and I on one side as a team against our athletic, super fit, 20 year old college student. I have been excited to get back on the tennis court as I used to play regularly when I was in my 30’s, but haven’t played in years. Last winter I noticed the tennis courts across from our complex…

Falling In Love With Yourself

By | Awareness, Love, Personal Growth, Self Care | No Comments

My new book is entitled “P.A.I.N. – An Invitation to Self Love”. It contains much of the wisdom, knowledge and understanding that I’ve gained through many decades of working with people in physical and emotional pain and, the journey of healing my own. What I’ve learned is that every painful experience of our life is an opportunity. To heal, understand, grow, connect. To shift in some way, our relationship with ourselves. That physical pain? An opportunity to Pay. Attention. Inside….

The Things We Run From

By | Awareness, Business Growth, Happiness, Healing, mindshift, Personal Growth, Power, Success | No Comments

Have you ever noticed how much time and money we spend distracting ourselves? The multi-billion dollar “entertainment industry” solely exists to cater to this desire. God forbid we should feel bored, disappointed, confused, angry, sad, afraid, or overwhelmed (which is simply a cluster of unidentified emotions). In the space of ‘doing nothing’ we are confronted with our thoughts and emotions and our unwillingness to be with them. It can be downright scary to sit with or face the aspects ourselves…

How to Recognize When You Need Self-Care

How to Recognize When You Need Self-Care

By | Awareness, happines, Personal Growth | No Comments

Self Care. Sometimes it can feel like a dirty word (or more accurately, two dirty words) Taking care of yourself can feel like yet another thing on your already full plate. If you’re a caregiver/caretaker for others, you may not have anything left over at the end of the day for yourself. Boy have I been there and done that! As a woman, a mother, a wife, I had been conditioned to nurture and nourish others, to put myself last….

The Power of Honesty for Self-Healing and Growth

“Remove the veils so I might see what is really happening here and not be intoxicated by my stories and my fears.” ~ Elizabeth Lessor Life is like a roller coaster. There are moments of incredible joy, deep sadness, times of stillness and times of flow. And then there are other moments where we are caught up with obsessing and comparing ourselves to other people, feeling jealous and judgmental. We experience fear and anger and frustration. Life is filled with…

How Commitment Shapes Our Lives

The Power of Commitment

By | Awareness | No Comments

Commitment is the foundation of great accomplishment. We all intuitively understand that, to achieve greatness, we must deeply invest in ourselves and take the action of committing to things that are important to us. In this way our commitment shapes our lives. I think it’s important to first define what we mean by commitment. Is it the same thing as an obligation? A promise? Dictionary.com defines commitment as a pledge, promise or an obligation. I personally love how John Asaraf…

Our Distractions Are Costing Us More Than We Realize

Living Consciously In A Digital World

By | Awareness, Self Care | No Comments

Technology is everywhere. It’s integrated into our lives from the moment we wake up and check our email to the last few minutes of the day when we wade through our favorite social media feed. We stay connected through smartphones, tablets, Fitbits and multi-display work computers. It can be challenging to use technology mindfully as it’s so easy to get pulled into the ‘world wide web’. Choosing to unplug, disconnect and put down our devices needs to be a deliberate…

The Gift of Fear is Uncovering the Truth

The Gift of Fear

By | Awareness | No Comments

We all know what it’s like to be afraid. We know how fear feels, but most of us don’t spend much time thinking about what fear really means. Many of us are conditioned to think of being fearful as a weakness. Fear is something we are supposed to conquer, fight and overcome… or avoid feeling completely. “Don’t worry…don’t panic” we like to say to one another. But what if we consider fear from a different perspective? What if we think…
