The totality of who we are and what we are here to do is crystal clear.
The arrangement we made when we decided to inhabit this precious place we call our earth, was one of unity, creation, benevolence, kindness, and love. A paradise of giving, growing, loving, and expanding our surroundings and our hearts in the biggest way we knew how. We learned our earth, and from it, we correlated a relationship of nurture and we fueled our bodies. We connected with earth and understood all of its weather. The plants and the trees, the mammals and the animals all lived as a brotherhood with us and everything grew. It was a beautiful symphony of collaboration, love, and respect.
Somewhere along the way, with free will as our birthright, we made choices that began the change of time. We made choices that came from a shadow side. An area of darkness that surprised our own hearts. Somehow this dark began to multiply. Thus the polarity of positive and negative began, dark and light, good and evil.
Disruption began to take hold and as benevolent souls we became frightened and we hid, we withdrew, and we protected. In this, we buried the vibration of our radiant light.
Although some stayed to fight the dark, it has progressively gotten worse and as Humankind we have become out of balance, we have fallen under a hypnotic rhythm of vibrational stagnation and numbness. Wars and hatred spread like wildfire. A shadow side that is out of control.
Our time is limited, we have gone too far. The vibration of fear, scarcity, shame, anger, and desired domination has taken over at mass capacity! Our world has shifted and God is watching, wondering if we will self-destruct or begin to fight back. Fight back for what we came here to be. What he intended for us as a species. To create, to grow, to expand, to REMEMBER why we are here!!
To find the CHRIST in each of us! That we are ALL capable of this enormous amount of Love, benevolence, selflessness, to understand that we are ALL one human race!!
We have been fooled by the mocking Spirits to turn us against each other. The light is such a powerful force that it scared the Dark. They realized that they were unmatched and so found a way that would be the quickest most effective and most powerful way to take over. It wasn’t by attacking and annihilating, as it knew that it would be a tough war that is unbeatable, as, with Love as the brightest light and the highest vibration, the dark didn’t stand a chance. So as clever and stealthy as it could possibly be, it did the one thing that would have light be defeated, it turned us against us. It began to infiltrate whenever possible through fear, jealousy, comparison, scarcity, self-righteousness, greed, and hatred. It was cunning and sneaky and it thinks it is winning.
There is still time!! Time to turn things around. More and more people are waking up! Waking up to the remembrance of our Divinity, our purest most powerful weapon that is Unmatched, Unbeatable, and Unshakable - The indestructible power of LOVE! It is at the CORE of every being; we have just forgotten. We got confused and trapped in the hypnotic rhythm that lured us like a trance into forgetfulness. We just temporarily lost our way AND we are coming back!
REMEMBER - WAKE UP!!
Break the hypnosis and WAKE UP. Connect to your heart!! BREATHE and REMEMBER the kindness in your soul, the Love in your Spirit, the place where the CHRIST lives! The one that is selfless, that sees the beauty in every human being, that forgives and offers a helping hand an uplifting word, a gentle smile or a much needed embrace.
We all need connection, connection with one another. A spoken word that offers grace, joy, compassion, and a tender kiss of kindness. That we see with a new set of eyes, ones that are now able to see clearly beyond the fog that had blurred our vision and is able to see beneath the skin and grasp hold of the soul that lives inside that is as majestic as your own. One who is hungering to be seen and loved just like YOU!! Speak to that and you can NOT fail. WE CAN NOT FAIL!!
The darkness doesn’t stand a chance as it can not touch the light! It can’t get near, as the light will ALWAYS illuminate!
It is time to turn back, as each and every one of us wakes up to the power of our light, we can collectively commune with what God and the Universe intended. We can Live in a harmonious Universe as the ripple effect of our world vibration sends a clear frequency to the cosmos and we play a much bigger role than we could possibly imagine.
Our earth Matters, We matter, YOU MATTER! Wake UP and reach out and wake up your neighbor and remind them why we are here.
TO LOVE, that’s it! TO LOVE.

Tomorrow is never promised. It is as though we live our lives thinking that all will be waiting for us to live another day in the same routine with the same expectations, and with the same intentions. So often we hear of tragedies happening that strike in the most shocking way and then we have regret.
Thoughts of not loving enough, not speaking words of kindness enough, not gifting a smile, not holding hands, or honoring a precious moment. Until…..something happens that reminds us of our temporary existence. When we lose someone we love or we get ill and are met with our mortality, we are suddenly front and center with the in-your-face bold reality that we may not be here tomorrow.
So what if we choose to live our lives today as though our time is limited and therefore precious because It IS!
How would we show up? Would we choose to forgive, to release the thoughts, emotions, and meanings we gave the experiences that caused us pain, and choose to have compassion and embrace the concept that all is Divine?
Maybe, just maybe, in our moments of darkness, it is a call to a deeper resolve in our ability to love especially in the moments we don’t want to. Or we think, I will forgive tomorrow, or I will call that person tomorrow, make amends tomorrow. Then tomorrow never comes and you continue to live with the pain in your heart that fuels actions that are not congruent with your spirit.
If we are love innately, then we are working against the grain of what God intended for us. With every act of “Unforgiveness” we create an incongruence, a jagged flow to our energy and our Spirit starves. It starves for what it is here to do, which is, LOVE. Purely and unapologetically. To share in kindness, support, a smile, a presence of focus and understanding, a compassionate embrace or a gentle touch. To allow only kind words to pass through our lips and that we recognize that anything other than a benevolent act is a call for love.
It is in this moment that we surrender to the space where we are without a net…the space of total trust and Faith that all is Divine and that God has a plan. With this in mind, we are able to face our challenges with a deeper level of bravery, a courage that allows us to show up with humbled integrity to serve and love even when our body wants to resist the tall order of acting in love when we are hurt.
This is when we cherish every moment and every day. We wake up with a profound level of gratitude that takes our breath away and gives us permission to unshackle the chains of judgment, fear, anger, or resentment and liberates us back to the magnificence of our Spirit, our journey back home to the Divinity of our soul and where God lives within us.
This is the gift of life.
Come home, open up your heart and live as though tomorrow may never come. When you do, you expand the energy that is healing; you send a ripple of impact that affects all of us and you blaze the trail for the rest of us to do the same. This is how we, together, change the world.

Responsible consciousness comes to mind when I saw a video on the internet of a couple speaking about being conscious and about their connection to a higher power, source, Spirit, universe, God etc. No judgement here as I can understand the voice or inner knowing that whispers to us when behaving or making a decision etc.
But.....When do we recognize that we are responsible for our actions? Meaning, I have a belief, that everything is Love. When we act with love, we accept the love that we are. So when behaving in a way that hurts someone, because "Spirit/God/Source" says so, how is that acceptable and congruent with our true nature?
The waters get cloudy and the lines get blurry when it comes to this conversation. Obviously, it is up to the individual to decide how to behave. So when speaking of "consciousness" or "inner knowing", I invite you to be careful and seek guidance from your heart. Your heart will not allow you to hurt another.
What if the heart was an organ of perception or awareness, that allows us to behave in a way that only offers the highest and greatest good through Love or a Loving act? Engaging compassion and benevolence is our true nature but we have forgotten.
In this ever changing world of curiosity and awareness or awakening, we must take responsibility for acting within every moment through the veil of LOVE. To hold every human being within the context of this highest vibration. Love is universal and transcends all energies, we fight for it, we die for it, we kill for it. Perhaps it is worth investigating the consciousness of our heart and choose to LOVE ALWAYS.
Going against the Grain
Have you ever gone against your own gut feelings to conform to a structure or said boundaries that do not feel right? When is it ok to break the rules?
If it doesn't feel right in your core then only you have the power to either speak your truth or follow along with something that intuitively is not in alignment. Why would you do that?
What if this was an opportunity to step into your truth and courageously lead by the congruence of your heart? That maybe in questioning the "rules" you can access a more creative way of doing or, better yet being, that creates an opening for new possibilities?
Here you create a new pathway, the one that works for YOU, the one that makes you come ALIVE, rather than shrink and ride the conveyor belt of the status quo or other people's perspectives or standards.
Now I am not saying all rules are bad, all I am saying is seek YOUR truth! Question yourself, do an inquiry of what your soul is telling you, pay attention and listen. You may find that you have a new road to forge, one that others are waiting to follow or listen to. Maybe just maybe you were meant to LEAD. Maybe not......
Either way, I say, give yourself permission to break the rules sometimes and tune into the beat of your heart's calling and
Dance to the rhythm of your music.
You may find yourself dancing more and singing more and courageously living vibrantly and sucking the juice out of life!!
Sounds like a blast and I would love to join YOUR party!! Big hugs!! xoxox

Freedom - We all want it, we all strive for it and want to feel it in every core of our being. What does it mean really??
Freedom from stress
Freedom from doubt
Freedom from fear
Freedom from anger
Freedom from judgment
Freedom from shame
Freedom from anxiety
The list goes on and on…when it comes down to it, the Freedom we are after is to just BE! To be free to live our life unapologetically and uninhibited. To Flow through life dancing to the beat of your own drum.
When we look at those that have done this, that have stepped into that fearless place of living life on their terms, we admire them, we are mesmerized by their courage and their unwillingness to conform by someone else rules. People like Prince, Elvis or Elton John, they decided to be and bring who ‘they’ are to the public eye, as crazy and far out as it may have seemed, they courageously said, this is WHO I AM.
So what prevents us from doing the same? To release all resistance from showing up and living fully and completely FREE from inhibitions? In my experience, it boils down to FEAR. Fear from being judged, fear of going after our desires and not making the mark.
The question that comes to mind is what is the biggest Freakin FEAR????
It is SO heavy to compare ourselves, to judge ourselves, I mean, If we were placed on this earth to be and act like everyone else then, damn, we have a very long life at learning how to be like 7 billion people!! No wonder it is so HEAVY and EXHAUSTING!! All this so that we will be liked or accepted?? So that we will be part of the “team"?
When we do this what happens is, we hide our true selves because that doesn’t fit in to being like the rest and we feel like a FRAUD. Which in turn makes us FEARFUL of allowing anyone to find out about the “real” us. That is when insecurity sets in or lack of self worth and shame.
This is why it feels so daunting. We have made a practice at it. We have conditioned ourselves to show up based on what will be socially accepted. We even ask people how they are because it is the “polite” thing to do when we really don’t want to hear the answer. So we fake interest or kindness?? Is this really what we want? Is this what we are working so hard to be like??
What if we switched it?
What if we went against the grain and decided to show up as our true self, the one that we have kept hidden, the one that is wacky and silly or passionate and sexy or weird and crazy and exquisitely brilliant? What if that was the greatest gift you can offer this world? YOUR kind of wild! What if you were made the way you were ON PURPOSE?!? That this was the very secret to your success and achievement of all of your dreams?
Harness the POWER and the incredible gift of your HUMAN SPIRIT!
The Spirit that lives inside you waiting for your calling. The one that will show up in your life to create and drive all of your wildest desires and thus yield you all you ever wanted and beyond what you could have imagined.
This is where you are UNLEASHED to the world, the MAGNIFICENCE of YOUR ESSENCE. Watch what happens in your life. Not only will you achieve FREEDOM, you will be magnetic and emit an energy that will fuel you and all those around you. That is what this world needs!!!! If we all step into our kind of crazy, FREEDOM is not only within reach, all we ever wanted will magically flow into our lives. When we are FREE we are able to truly LOVE ourselves and thus give LOVE freely to all those that we meet and connect with.
This is the key to raising Humanity at the highest level and changing the vibrational frequency of dark to light, of hate to Love. This is how POWERFUL each and everyone of you are. You matter more than you know and YOU are the radiant light that will shift the world.
EMBRACE IT AND BRING IT, IT IS TIME!

What if before you came here, you chose when making your contract with God, that you would be amongst the people that would make a difference in the world? That you would fight and be a Warrior for Love?
What if the challenges you are experiencing weren't meant to take you out, they were to show you what you've got and awaken you to a deeper power?
You see, sometimes you don't know what you've got until your knees hit the floor. In our darkest moments in some of our more painful experiences, there is a light that is awaiting our acceptance. When it hurts so much, all we can see is the pain we are in, and I totally get that. Feel your feelings, however, be witness to what else is true. Every day that you wake up again and wipe your tears, there is a resilient, courageous, beautiful soul that got back up. This is also true.
If God could whisper to you....
"I know this sucks right now, but if you knew what is coming you would know why I need you to build courage and resilience today."
That might be the courage or strength to help someone you love during a difficult time or to handle a challenge in the future. We don't get to hear that voice, but we get to trust that all is in Divine order and within the dark times there is always light. Even if that is someone hugging you in your pain or you finding a deeper resolve to persevere.
Napoleon Hill said in his book, Outwitting the Devil;
"With every bit of adversity, there is a seed planted of unborn opportunity or its exact advantage."
This is one of my favorite quotes. It indicates the polarity present in the toughest times. What if the depth of our pain or darkness was equal to the height of our power and light? To wake us up to love harder and forgive quicker. To be witness to our highest power to persevere through that toughest of times. Take notice of all of the grit that you are building and acknowledge the beautiful Champion in the arena of your life.
If you skip this, the pain can keep you a prisoner of limitation and hurt. A whirlwind of painful emotions that will have you behave in ways that are not congruent with your giving heart. And the suffering begins. Trust that your hurt shows up in ways that you may not correlate to the painful experience. It is sneaky and creates armor around your heart so tightly that it becomes your personality. It shows up in ways that sabotage your life.
So breathe....recalibrate, reconnect and realign to your center. Call on your higher power, the best version of you, with full trust in your heart that when the impact settles, there is something beautiful waiting for you.
Remember, you MUST look for the good or the opportunity, it is always there. If you don't, you will only remember the pain.
I love you,

Pathway to Achievement
Sometimes when setting a goal, we “try and try again”. We set our goals and reset our goals and then after we beat ourselves up, we yet again, create another set of goals…what does it take to get out of our own way?
The year begins and by February there are spaces again in the parking lot of the gym due to how many people fell off of their New Year resolution. We get clear on our ‘why’, but the bottom line is, we consistently find reasons why we can’t do it; we are blaming machines! We know we need to get to the gym, or crush that deadline or break that record, however, in the moment of setting the goal, we lack COMMITMENT. We begin to find all of the reasons why we couldn’t accomplish the goal. “My alarm didn’t go off”, “my family came over with pizza”, “Sally didn’t get the proposal done in time”, etc, etc. Guess what, they could all be true, and “so what”. Like the quote says:
“The facts don’t count when you are committed”
The heart of the matter is, that when you commit, fully commit, to the outcome that you are seeking, achievement is yours. It is like engaging the heart to the decision. It is where you find the grit, passion and will to defy the odds and command your body, mind and conscience to work in conjunction with the heart and maximize your results.
Commitment engages a different part of your Spirit, it not only says, it WILL do it, it also see’s it happening in advance. The heart is already celebrating the win. When you fuel your decision with commitment that is fully engaged by the hearts calling to defy the odds and break through any limitation, success is yours. Its that moment when everything else disappears and your vision narrows and all you see is the finish line. Commitment accesses a hidden muscle that is just waiting to be called. It is your 20x factor. This is where you find that no matter how far you have come when you think you are all maxed out and couldn’t possibly do more, there is another 20x’s more that you actually have to give.
So how committed are you to this game of life, business, relationships, abundance and health? Are you testing the waters and dabbling, finding reasons why you can’t or are you FULLY COMMITTED to turning your dreams into realities? Ultimately, the choice is yours. There isn’t anyone else that is writing the next chapter of your life but you.
So I ask you….if there is one person who has done it, actually defied the odds and made the impossible, possible…then
WHY NOT YOU?
The only limitation to your success is the belief that there is one. Choose NOW to make your life a brilliant masterpiece! Grab it by the throat and tell it who’s boss! You GOT THIS and you are so definitely WORTH it!
~ Fierce Grace Transformation ~
When is enough, "enough"?
How often do we put ourselves in the line of fire before we wipe our brow take a deep breath and decide that enough is enough?
The line of fire can be a charged relationship, a negative partnership in business, or a negative emotion that does not serve you, however you keep putting yourself in situations that perpetuate the negative emotion. Sometimes it seems that we have to get tarred and beaten before we realize that we are the masters of our destiny.
The point is, do we have to come to a state of apathy or mental, emotional, physical beat down to wake up and take a stand for our own beautiful spirit?? Do we have to become bloodied and bludgeoned before we decide that we are worthy of more? It is NOT noble to SUFFER!! It doesn’t make the rise that much more valiant because we suffered more.
What if we decide to create our lives by our vision of a masterpiece right NOW? What if we put in place everything that stalks that deck in our favor to be extraordinary? To be at the cause of our lives not the effect and suck the juice out of this amazing experience we call life?
Life will bring its challenges as all life does, it is what makes this life so incredibly amazing as it creates polarity. We can’t know light without knowing dark, we can’t know positive without knowing negative so trust that if you take the bull by the horns and with Intent and Inspired action decide to make your life everything you could possibly imagine, that you will have the adversity and road blocks that take you out for the moment or cause you to stumble but that is the richness in life!! So long as you see those bumps in the road as learning or growing opportunity rather than a disempowering belief that will have you stumble down the rabbit hole of victimization. Life will throw PLENTY at you so you don’t have to put yourself in the line of anyone’s fire or a disempowering situation.
It is an illusion that we HAVE to live within anything that doesn’t serve our highest and greatest good. Often times we see it as noble because well we don’t want to hurt anyone…..the bottom line is that if you are not living connected to your Spirit and loving yourself and living life with joy, you are already causing those you think you are protecting, harm, because they are not getting the full expansive beautiful wholeness of you. Your essence is diminished because deep down inside you know that you are suffering, that something isn't right and that clouds your energy and lowers your vibration.
So lets stop this and get off of this crazy train. It is just patterned conditioning that we have learned along the way that we have the power to change.
I invite you to check in with yourself. What are you tolerating? A bad relationship, overeating, alcohol use/abuse, or maybe it is just waiting for someone to validate you or for someones approval….no matter what, get curious and ask yourself:
~ Is this making me feel good?
~ Is it fueling my energy or draining it?
~ Why am I putting myself in this?
~ What am I seeking to gain?
~ What do I believe I will feel when I get it?
~ Is it something that I can give myself?
You see, when we are looking outside of ourselves to fulfill a part that is lacking, it is presupposing that we are not whole and complete, therefore, making us feel that we are not enough. What if we can fill this gap with our own self love, validation and approval? I believe that this is why the situation is showing up in our lives over and over again to force us to take a stand. A stand for our own beauty and our own magnificence. If we don’t see the brilliance of our own light and the beauty of our Spirit, how can anyone else?
It is time to take a deep look at ourselves and realize our power and beauty. There is no one else like YOU! You are made the way you are with purpose and ON purpose, don’t be stingy with your ESSENCE!! Share your beauty with us. There are a lot of shifts happening in the world right now and we need each and every light to shine in love and radiance. It is this deep love for self and one another that will help shift humanity. It is a misconceived notion to believe that your light is not brilliant not magnificent and awe inspiring. Says who??
So connect, breathe, put your hand on your heart and know that you are ALREADY enough and you don’t have to suffer not another minute!! The gift of YOUR Human Spirit is what the world needs now more than ever. When you realize how incredible you are, you begin to emit that to each and every person in your life and even energetically to all you experience. You are now an energetic field of love, power and grace. Your essence will be felt and you will affect not only your world and those closest to you but also all those that have the pleasure of meeting you.

Tomorrow is not promised. There is so much in life that we make important or that we make matter that causes us suffering. When we seek for joy outside of ourselves we are denying the gift of joy within our own Spirit. The Spirit knows......it is clear and divine perfection upon its arrival to this human experience. Somewhere along the journey of life, we lose our way.
From the first moment we feel hurt or disappointment or when someone doesn't treat us well, whether it be a school friend, teacher, sibling, parent, boss, partner, lover or even a stranger, we begin to stack meaning and associations to who we are and our identity begins to form. Each layer convincingly moving away from the knowing that our Spirit seeks to remind us of. We start to shield the innocence of our wounded heart and we layer walls of protection and forget our divine wholeness and beauty.
From this space, we hold grudges and we blame, criticize and judge ourselves and our fellow man. We act out or withhold love, we hide our essence for fear that it will be hurt again and then we begin to believe that happiness lies outside of ourselves. We believe that it lies in the form of achievement of this certificate or that Job, that house, a specific car or specific relationship and we lose our sense of self. Then as the years pass us by, we get to that point when we are sitting on our rocking chair with tons of regret or worse yet, we lose someone in an instant and we suffer because we never forgave or spoke the love that was always in our hearts. Marianne Williamson said:
"Miracles occur naturally with love, every time we withhold love, it is a withhold of a miracle."
In an article in Inc.com, they identified the 12 most common regrets that people have before they die, they are:
All of these equate to a lack of acknowledging the gift of our authentic self. We are LOVE, we are born in love it is our innate nature.
So do we have to wait until we die? Or do we have to wait until a loved one is taken from us?
This is a question to really ponder! Life is to short to SUFFER! If beneath all of the walls of protection, in the quiet still of the night when no one is listening, you are knowing that there is love in your heart that you have not been sharing or expressing, then I encourage you to take a stand today and LET GO! Let go of all of the past references that have prevented you from forgiving, from loving, from laughing and living within your highest potential of unconditional love to all those that you come in contact with, especially those that have hurt you. It doesn't mean that you agree, condone or like certain behaviors, but what if each person that hurt you, was doing the best they could with what they have been given? They were in your life for a reason and now you get to choose to find the gift or live in the anger, resentment or judgement of them, which only fuels the egoic mind that wants to keep you from your Spirit's calling.
Connect to the beauty of your Spirit, awaken it, fuel it and embrace the limitless possibilities of your human potential to LOVE every minute of every day, as when you give love you get love tenfold! YOU deserve it, don't you?

You can find the Inc article referenced above, here.
An unmanaged thought can quickly take control of all of our experiences. When asked, "Are we our thoughts?" 95% of the time the answer is "yes". If this is true, then how do we know that we are even having a thought? In the world of personal development we consistently talk about breaking through our limiting beliefs, when you think about it, our beliefs are made up of our repetitive thought patterns. What we say in our minds and what we feed consistently. If then, we can shift our beliefs by adjusting our thoughts we take back control and shift to an empowering belief.
Ok so here is the question....if we have the power to shift our thoughts, aren't we then choosing our thought? If so, "who" is doing the choosing? Meaning, if we are our thoughts and we can change our thoughts at any given time, what part of us is doing the choosing? This opens up the opportunity to explore an even deeper part of our existence. If we are not our thoughts, then what are we?
Eckhart Tolle says, "We are the consciousness beneath the thought". The awareness of the thought itself. This creates an opportunity to be the observer of the thought. When we are able to separate from the thought and be the observer, we can now make a conscious choice of not only what meaning we give our experiences but also what actions we can take. Our thoughts are a powerful part of ourselves so we don't want to abolish our thoughts but more so "watch the thinker" as Eckhart puts it.
Our consciousness is the intuition, the knowing and the Awakening of our Spirit that lives inside all of us. It speaks truth to us and knows our greater good. We seek it in times of need but sometimes drown out its message by our thinking which is filtered by what we believe we "should" do based on a ton of different life experiences.
So then, what are we to do to Awaken our Spirit and lead a more conscious life? Practice stillness, presence, meditation and heart coherence. When we take the time, even a few moments throughout the day to breathe and connect to the intuitive guidance of our heart and separate from the thought, we are able to open the gateway to the Awakening of our Spirit and find truth about what we are thinking, how we are behaving and what we are believing in. When we can actively be the observer of the thought we are now back in the driver seat of our actions or behavior. We can now choose to suffer and create disempowering meaning to our experiences or find the deeper more empowering meaning to the activity or experience that we are presented with and then take intelligent inspired action moving forward.
The more we acknowledge the magnificence of our active mind from the consciousness of our Awakened Spirit, the greater power we have at creating our Limitless life and unleashing our Human Potential. Once awakened it is yours forever.
