6/30/11 We live in an age of quantity. We are told that we need to find more time, more possessions, and more love to be truly happy. A smaller quantity of anything that is high in quality will almost always be more satisfying. Quality can make life sweeter; life experiences can be meaningful. It is not how much you have or do but what you make of each moment that counts. Love more.
We are all One, and until we realize the need for the Divine within through loving one another, there will not be peace.
6/29/11 Because we are all mirrors for each other, looking at the people in your life can tell you a lot about yourself. It is easy to see the traits you do not like in others. It is much more difficult to realize that you posses those same traits. Often the habits, attitudes, and behaviors of others are closely linked to our unresolved issues. Nurture compassion and empathy, letting the goodness you see in others be your mirror and reflect.
6/28/11 Summer should be about sunshine and picnics, lemonade and BBQs, pools and beaches. Reduce stress by inhaling the summertime smell of fresh cut grass or a pleasant fragrance you love (the sea or grill). Listen to the sounds of nature around you and redirect your mind from tension and turmoil to the present moment. Make friends with “what is” even if it is too hot or too rainy. Positive energy spills over into our life as inner peace.
6/27/11 Red flags often come in the form of urging us to pause for a moment and listen to our intuition; to reconsider. Our bodies may react negatively as a warning sign. We may try and ignore the red flags waving our way, but we need to pay attention to this innate guidance system. God is directing you through inward signs and intuitive feelings. The universe is watching!
6/26/11 Many people live their lives struggling against the current. They try to use force or resistance to will their lives into happening the way they think it should. Do you go with it or resist it? Learning to step into the flow can help you feel a connection to the Divine Source that is always there to support and love you. Make the decision to ride the current and go with the flow.
Now is the "high tide" of the year. Take joy from each new day of life unfolding around you. Mother Earth has given birth!
6/25/11 Enjoy summer! As many have tried and failed and tried again, if we are to flourish as creative beings and grow into wholeness, we must bloom where we are planted. The nicest days are not those where splendid things happen, but just the simple pleasures delight. If we are lucky, the days ahead will unfold as a never-to-be-forgotten summer; one where beautiful memories are made and treasured for a lifetime!
6/24/11 Most of us realize we are not perfect, and it is natural to have unpleasant thoughts, motivations, desires, or feelings. When we don’t acknowledge these, we may end up projecting these characteristics onto others. We can’t always avoid but we don’t have to engage in these encounters. When we take ownership of our thoughts, we are less likely to project our own issues onto others. LOVE!
6/23/11 Emotions that we long to express get stored in our bodies instead. The space where this most often happens is our center. We stuff our true feeling, which ends up being detrimental and toxic to our emotional well-being and physical health. Releasing our pent up feelings can prevent disease and allow us to lead more expressive lives. The body doesn’t lie. Acknowledge the truth of your emotions.
Fear is the dark room where negatives are developed~the dark room of the mind. Unleash the power of Light.
6/22/11 We fear our shadow side and the shadow side of life. When we catch a dark thought crossing our mind or acting out in a behavior, we run and hide. We hope and pray it will disappear. The truth is that running from the shadow only intensifies its power. Denying it leads to more pain. Embracing your shadow allows you to be whole and take back the power. Unleash your passion and dreams by using love and forgiveness today!
Be grateful for the abundance in your life no matter the size, and then you will experience heaven on earth. Never focus your thoughts on lack or it will grow.
6/21/11 Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives as parallel realities. It is our conscious choice which garden we shall tend. The tangled vines holding us back are our own thoughts. When we choose not to focus on what is missing but on the abundance that’s present~ love, health, family, friends, and pleasure~ the wasteland falls away and we experience joy daily.

I believe everyday is a gift from our Creator. As we age, some may fear the unknown~death. People who become aware of their mortality find they have actually gained freedom to live. They have found they have an appreciation for the present. We are all here to contribute love, forgiveness, and service. As I age, I want to nourish my soul's purpose. If we are open to grace, people will appear in our lives to encourage growth of our souls. Allow me to provide daily nourishment through loving words, because joy is our birthright. I call these my daily "Truth Vitamins" for spiritual health. Join me in discovering together our inner soul purpose with "Love~that's all there is".
