Every New Year a mantra reveals itself to me that serves as a compass for my decisions and actions and that challenges me to go beyond my limitations of ego and mind. The mantra is more than just words. It’s an invitation to break a hypnosis that quietly runs aspects of my life...Read More
There is joy and fulfillment just around the corner when you are open to the unknown, when you engage a conversation about your truth and what really matters.
Let that be your compass, your true north. Allow that creative expression of your essence to emerge regardless of your age. Allow yourself the blessing of emergence, the blessing of being honest about who you are and the courage to lead your life accordingly.Read More
You go through your life seeing what is obvious, what is directly in front of you and you don’t question what is beyond that. You may be experiencing a challenge or a change in your life that leaves you disoriented and fearful of the unknown. There arises a tension between letting go and moving on.

I am about to take a dive into the deep end. I’m about to share with you something significant and personal because you and I share a mutual commitment to live authentically, to lead with integrity and to be the best possible version of ourselves so we can do the work we are meant to do.
I hear the voice of fear nagging at me. “What if they don’t like it? What if they think I’m wasting my talent? What if they think I’m crazy? What it they leave me? What if I lose all my income as a result? What if they lose confidence in me? What will they think of me?”

This is the way to soften around resistance. Step through the portal and listen deeply to your truth. Let the rest fall away. Honor the losses and even the destruction knowing that the breath brings with it new inspiration and insight from a place far away and yet so very close. In this sacred space there are no words, only a deepening compassion for all the battles fought and to be fought, for the losses and tears that become the price for redemption.Read More
