The Power of Awareness

By Awareness, Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success No Comments

You’ve probably heard me say a thousand times…“You can’t change what you can’t see”. That’s why all change begins with awareness. Awareness is consciousness and it requires presence. Being fully present expands our awareness and, the more aware you are, the more choice you have – to keep things the same (if you like it) or make a change (if you don’t). It’s actually quite challenging to be fully present in each moment. Our mind is masterful at distracting us…

Yesterday My Fear Immobilized Me

By Awareness, Business Growth, Happiness, Healing, Love, mindshift, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success No Comments

Yesterday, I spent the entire day in bed watching movies and playing games on my iPad. I listened to a whole book in the morning (fiction). I skipped exercise class. I didn’t run my client payments that were due. I told myself. “It’s ok to take today off and rest”. “You work hard”. “Relax and take it easy”. “You deserve this!”, as I massaged the growing tension and pain in my right hip and lower back. This morning, I sat…

The ONE Thing That Changes EVERYTHING!

By Awareness, Business Growth, Happiness, mindshift, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success No Comments

Happy New Year! As we stand at the beginning of another year, it is tempting to get swept up in the narrative of “New Year. New You!” And all the changes you are going to “Make 2020 your best year yet!”. Truth be told, it can get overwhelming really fast when you start to try to make big changes or change too many things at once. As someone who has transformed my own life and reinvented myself many times I…

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…
