The biggest reason people don't like setting goals is because they hate that feeling of failure when they don't make things happen. Sound familiar? Trust me, I get it...and as a matter of fact I have been there myself and it's no fun! But this is the deal...it isn't that we are incapable. There are a couple of other issues that do come into play though, and I'm going to talk to you a little bit about that today...
For myself I make the most consistent strides forward towards any given goal when I have an accountability buddy. But I am also that weirdo who loves writing to-do lists so that I can check things off. My point is that declaring to someone what you are going to do, and then having daily (or weekly) check-ins to confirm that you have done it can be super empowering. This feeling of confidence starts to build inside you and you overhear yourself saying, "Look at me go!" And before you know it you are experiencing your dreams come true.

Do you ever get so wrapped around the axel that you can't find your way back to peace? You know...when you catch someone in a lie, or you are treated like poop, or someone purposefully defies your boundary and you feel yourself coming unglued!
Or perhaps you have been on the receiving end of this? You innocently mention that maybe that isn't the best color shirt for your friend to be wearing with their complexion and the next thing you know...KERPLOWEE!!! They blow up and are screaming at you about everything mean you've ever said since the second grade!
I call this the "Red Zone"...and it isn't very pretty. But we've all been there at one point or the other, right? Getting triggered into our red zones can seem to happen without us even noticing what's happening. But once we're in there, it isn't so easy getting back out.
When I was younger I was so easily emotionally overwhelmed that I would sometimes suffer for weeks (if not months) following a red zone episode and it didn't really make a difference if I was the one receiving or the one dishing it out. And I HATE to SUFFER! That's probably why I worked so hard to find a foolproof plan for cooling off as quickly as possible after one of these blow ups.
And today I am going to share with you the 3 simple steps to cooling off...
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the video...please leave them below! And if I can support you with a private session go ahead and schedule now.

If you haven't guessed it (or felt it) yet...this year is all about connecting within to your soul and manifesting your heart's desires. So, how's it going...? How have you been doing at putting a self-care practice into place that actually nurtures you completely; body, emotions, mind, and spirit?
I understand that when you are feeling overwhelmed by your chaotic life that the last thing you want to do is figure out how to add one more thing to your plate but I can assure you, making room for a self-care practice will make all the difference.
About 30 years ago when I was dealing with chronic neck pain from a car accident I met a phenomenal Reiki Master who helped me to heal myself. She became my friend, teacher, mentor, and "other mother". I will forever be grateful to Marlene "Molly" Cleckner. Molly helped me begin the process of aligning my body, emotions, and mind with spirit. She guided me along the path of meditation, psychic development, and all things metaphysical. And it was life changing...
My life began to transform more and more on the outside as I began to make a practice of nurturing my spirit each day. My neck healed. My stress levels diminished. I changed my work environment. I became happier, healthier, and way more peaceful.
And most importantly...it wasn't really that big of a deal! I did NOT spend weeks in silent meditation at an ashram. Nor did I make any other huge life changes to facilitate these results.
But what I did was simple enough that anyone can accomplish. Let me show you how...
If you would like support with manifesting your inner peace, I would definitely suggest my Centering with Love & Light System which is only $27! It may be exactly what you need to help you with your self-care practice!
Please leave a comment below with any thoughts or comments about the video. I look forward to hearing about your experience...

It's that time of year again! New Year always opens people up to possibilities for the year ahead...well, some people. Others, not so much! It seems like those other people have gotten a bad taste in their mouth over the whole "resolutions thing" and have decided to take a hard pass. Which is unfortunate. I mean who wants to start a new year without any hopes or dreams or aspirations, right?
I think the truth about these other people is that the reason they are so over New Year's Resolutions is because they are tired of feeling like a failure on January 7th (or 18th, or 27th) every year when they give up on them.
But this is the deal...It's NOT their fault! The real problem is that no one has ever taught them how to effectively create resolutions that actually inspire them and call them forward towards their dreams. And that is exactly what I want to talk to you about today!
When it comes to setting the foundation for anything new...a new relationship, a new job, a new year...it really boils down to 2 important steps:
Let's jump in to these steps in a bit more detail:
Simple, right? I love it. And for those who need support in clearing their slate, I have discounted Self-Care packages that you can use for personal sessions, while those who need support in both areas of cleaning their slate AND building from their spiritual power can enroll in the 8-week Inward Bound Program and save 50% (use coupon code NewYou2022).
Not sure which is right for you? Schedule a complimentary Discovery Session and I will help you figure out your next best steps.
No more excuses. Let's make 2022 your best year ever!

It is so important for healers, energy workers, and lightworkers to make their own healing, energy, and light their first priority. However, sadly, it is usually near the bottom of their lists. But this is the deal...we can only lead someone else as far as we have gone. If we haven't healed our childhood wounds, or addressed our sabotaging thoughts, or learned how to give our body what it needs to heal itself, then how do we expect to be able to help other people do those things?
In this video I will discuss with you your first step in the healing process...
I mentioned our Healing Circles on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month on Zoom at 7pm ET, and if you are interested in joining us, please CLICK HERE to save your spot.
Looking forward to seeing you soon...

My friend’s daughter was rushed to the hospital because they feared she was having a stroke. Luckily they found that she did not and that it was labyrinthitis and Bell’s Palsy. The combination of the two had caused temporary blindness. The daughter is devastated. She is depressed and crying most of the time, feeling lost and overwhelmed, and completely dependent on her mom for everything.
One of my dear friends was in a severe car accident which caused a spinal cord injury. The doctors diagnosed her with quadriplegia. This beautiful yoga teacher found herself confined to a wheelchair. However she knew that this was not her fate and simply an opportunity for her to connect with the healer within. After a couple of weeks she had regained movement in her arms and upper body. A few weeks later she was experiencing movement in her toes. As of today she is relearning how to walk and getting stronger every day.
My question is why is one woman suffering over a temporary condition while the other is thriving in spite of a supposedly permanent condition?
Because one of these women had a CLEAR VISION of the outcome she desired. She could see her future self walking, dancing, doing yoga, and having full control of every muscle of her body. She could feel the joy and contentment of being able to use her body to express herself. And she knew with certainty that with God she could do anything...and what she was going to do is heal her body. And she is!
The other woman however is feeling lost and confused at the moment. She is seeing her affliction as something that is happening to her instead of seeing the truth...this is happening for her. Even the things that seem the most difficult or challenging are happening so that we can become who our soul came here to be. The loss of vision is simply a sign that she doesn’t have a clear vision for who she wants to be, what she wants to do, and what she wants to create with her life...and that’s okay. But perhaps she’s being given this time to let go of everything outside of her and connect within to what her heart truly desires and to create a vision for her life. She’s being given this time to decide her reasons for living. How exciting is that?
As humans we spend so much time suffering over what is happening instead of enjoying the opportunity to learn, grow, and expand in our consciousness. And that usually happens when we have forgotten that we are spiritual beings having a human experience and have begun to believe we are human beings trying to fit into this physical world. You can’t and you never will because you were never meant to fit in. You were meant to shine as brightly as the stars in the sky in your own unique and beautiful way.
What I see with my clients is that they spend a lot of time suffering because they are looking at things from a physical perspective instead of from a spiritual perspective...and that perspective gets us nowhere fast! However sometimes just a simple change of perspective can move you out of suffering and into inspired action in a flash. And then the miracles can begin…
If you have been suffering and could use some love and support please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am here to help.
With love & light,
Potential...such an interesting word.
It can stop you in your tracks making you wonder, “Have I fulfilled my potential?” Or it can stop you in horror when you recognize you’ve fulfilled someone else’s vision of your potential yet you feel completely empty and lost.
How do you recognize your potential? It is that dream that fills your heart, that desire that calls your soul forward. This is the deal with those dreams and desires...they are your soul’s way of calling you forward towards your heaven on earth. You can listen to them and move forward towards experiencing complete fulfillment OR you can choose to not listen and live a life that has you constantly feeling like something is missing. And it is.
We are each born with the potential to become anything we want to be in this world. But there are a few things that get in the way of that happening…
The first problem is when you are born to parents who have a clear vision for who they want you to be. It doesn’t really matter who you came here to be. All that matters to them is that you follow the path that they set you on. The problem with this is that you can’t fulfill someone else’s potential for them, and that’s exactly what these parents are trying to do- have you live the life they wish they had chosen for themselves. But that is not your job. Your job is to live the life you wish for yourself to the fullest!
The second problem can arise when you are multi-talented and other people tell you what you “should” be doing. “Oh my goodness! You are so good with numbers! You should be an accountant!” And you think to yourself, yeah they are right. I am really good with numbers. Maybe an accountant is what I should be. And you cast away your hopes and dreams of being an actor and bringing the words of famous playwrights to life and helping the audiences feel the emotional depth of the characters you would play. But your job is not to do what you are good at, it is to do what you LOVE!
A third problem is when you let your fear become bigger than your purpose. In other words, playing it safe becomes your priority over fulfilling your potential. This happens so often. Your heart has always called you towards your soulmate yet over and over again you end up with partners that seem to be intent on ripping out your heart! You have been heartbroken, devastated, and have even begun to question if perhaps you are unlovable. And so you have begun to build walls around your heart to keep the pain away...but that very same process is keeping love out. But your job is not to shrink away from what scares you but to feel the fear and do it anyway!
Your spirit is simply seeking to fulfill its highest potential as YOU...the incredibly unique and wondrous being that only you can be. Are you fulfilling that potential…?
If the answer is no...I can help. Schedule an Appointment
If the answer is yes...are you interested in helping others fulfill their potential? Please let me know as I am looking to expand my team of coaches.
With love & light,
I found out this morning that one of my favorite neighbors has died from Covid. He was a teacher to elementary school kids, had a little dog named Tobie, and was always quick to smile and wave hello when we saw each other when out walking our dogs or grocery shopping in Publix.
To be honest I feel happy for him because he gets to be in heaven. I look forward to the day when I too will be complete here and ready to go on to my what’s next. Who I really feel sorry for and worry about is Tobie. He’s an older dog who is kind of bossy and gruff but I’m sure he must be broken-hearted and confused at the loss of his beloved human.
And I worry about myself because this has really got me thinking about what if it had been me? Could I have left feeling complete? Knowing that I had said everything I needed to say? Not today my friend, not today!
What about you? Have you spoken your authentic truth to those around you that you love and care for? What about to those around you who keep making the same mistake over and over again? Have you ever taken the time to share a new perspective or point of view that might actually help them? Or do you just walk away shaking your head about the stupid choices they are making?
I know for myself it is a combination platter. Some days I choose from column A and share my love and light while other days I choose from column B and sit in silence. Let me tell you...I always feel better on days I choose from column A!
So today I want to share a little of my own love and light with you by reminding you that you do make a difference! Your viewpoint is needed by others...even if they laugh and say that it isn’t true. It may be the very thing that they needed to hear and it will be the catalyst for great learning and change in their lives.
Here’s an example: For the past 7 days I have been experiencing laryngitis. One of my girlfriends asked me if I thought my throat chakra could be closed and I laughed and said no, if anything mine is wide open and is in the process of rebalancing. I could feel that my response hurt her feelings which I never meant to do. I just thought it was an odd suggestion since I spend my life listening to spirit and transcribing what I hear. But the truth is that I don’t spend a whole lot of time speaking my “own truth” because honestly, I don’t see the value when I have so much loftier wisdom to share. BUT maybe this was God’s way of telling me that my voice does matter...through the words of my friend Schelle.
And I am here to tell you that your voice matters too! So let’s get out into the world this week and say all the things we want people to know. Let’s share our love and light in our own unique and beautiful ways. Tell the people you love all the things you love about them. Tell the people you don’t like all the things you have learned from them and why you are grateful to have them in your life. And most importantly, don’t forget yourself...tell yourself (in writing on paper) all the things you love about the wonderful and amazing being that you are!
So where will you begin? Please share below and tag those you love and want to remind to use their magnificent voices. Looking forward to your responses...
With love & light,
Recently one of my dear friends was in a horrible car accident that caused a spinal cord injury at C-4. The doctors told her that she was going to be a quadriplegic.
At that moment she had a decision to make...was she going to trust the information that was outside of her (the doctor's opinion) or the information that was coming from within (her higher guidance)? Because her spirit was telling her that this was her next opportunity on her spiritual path that was going to allow her to become who she came here to be...a healer.
Luckily, she chose to listen to the voice within and she has spent the past few months inspiring all of us who know her with her strength and resilience. Last week when we spoke she joyfully shared that her new favorite thing in physical therapy is practicing standing! Yes, that from a woman who was diagnosed with quadriplegia. Impressive, right?
It just goes to show you how amazing the mind really is. It has the ability to create whatever it is we are focused on. But that can be a two-edged sword because it makes it very clear that everything we have and are experiencing in our life, we thought into creation. Even the not-so-great stuff!
And then when we're experiencing the not-so-great stuff what happens...? All of these unhealthy emotions come up and get wrapped around the situation and we end up feeling completely stressed and overwhelmed. That's why this week I wanted to talk to you a little bit about the 3 simple steps to go from overwhelmed to empowered...
So, I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment below with any thoughts or comments and let's start a discussion on ways to keep ourselves empowered emotionally. I look forward to connecting with you...
With love and light,
PS- I encourage you to check out the free Emotional Empowerment Webinar that I mentioned in the video. I have gotten some really great feedback on how helpful it is.
When I was about 3 years old my mom took me to have my picture taken. I had on my favorite dress, she had curled my long blonde hair using her curlers, I was wearing my perfectly shiny patten leather shoes, and I was carrying my prized possession...my beloved stuffed dog. That dog had been there with me throughout all of my life's journey thus far, so of course, he would be joining me for this monumental day.
We arrived at the "photographer's studio" which as I recall was at the back of the Big N Store, next to the toy department. I was ready and excited for my big moment. The photographer commented about how pretty I looked. I was ready for my close-up! But then, it happened...
He took away my beloved stuffed dog and handed me a brand new stuffed animal. What was he thinking? I don't know this toy...it isn't mine! I don't love it and share precious memories with it. Take it away! AND BRING ME BACK MY DOG!!!
I screamed, I cried, I asked for what I wanted, I had a full-on tantrum. Nothing worked. No matter how nice the idiot photographer tried to be, he was not getting a smile out of me. He had become the enemy. And he was not going to win this battle. My mom even took me for a little walk around the toy department to explain that they just thought the new stuffed toy would look nicer in the picture. I did not care. In the least. I. Just. Wanted. My. Dog. Back.
And I got it! When we returned to the studio I was reunited with my precious doggie, and the photographer was ready to get a bright, smiley picture of me. But you know what, I wasn't feeling very smiley...
When I look at that picture which I love so very much it reminds me of three amazing lessons from my childhood:
1. I have always held a clear vision for what I wanted to create and experience in my life.
2. I did not give up my beliefs or cave to the will of others.
3. I am not someone who is easily controlled and manipulated, and do not like being disrespected...at all.
Another thing I adore about this picture is that it is a completely honest and true reflection of how I was feeling in that moment. It may not be as cute as a bright, smiling face with a brand new stuffed animal, but that wouldn't have been a true reflection of my true self in that moment.
And so I ask you, when you look back at pictures from your childhood do you see the "real you" or do you see some other version of yourself that you don't really recognize?
The reason I ask is because I think it is important to understand that from a very early age we were taught to put on masks and act the way that others thought it was appropriate for us to act. We were taught to act in ways others wanted us to behave, and many times if we didn't, there were consequences to pay. And so we began to give up little pieces of who we were born to be, and started to adopt this other "acceptable" version of ourselves.
The problem is that one day you wake up and realize that you don't even like this person you have become, and you are EXHAUSTED from having to be who other people think you should be all the time. Sound familiar? You are not alone. This is a story I hear over and over again from my clients.
But how do you find your way back to your true self? The easy way (in my humble opinion) is by investing 8 weeks into your journey within through the Inward Bound Program. You will be given the tools, support, safe space, and guidance you need to find your way back to the Self you love and accept unconditionally.
It is time for you to reconnect to your true vision of what you want to experience, to believe in yourself, and to create a life for yourself that is a beautiful expression of who you really are. You are the only You that will ever be...and there is a sweet magnificence to that. It's time for you to shine your light in your own unique and beautiful way.
Even if that means holding on to a stinky old dog with your grumpy face on!
