Hello Sweet Souls!!!

Complaining as an Act of Suffering

Complaining as an Act of Suffering

“See if you can catch yourself complaining, in either speech or thought, about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life situation, even the weather. To complain is always non acceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness.” - Eckhart Tolle

Leaving Worry Behind

Leaving Worry Behind

I had a funny “a-ha” moment when I watched Oprah interviewing, rapper "50 Cent" one day and he said “you can’t worry and pray.” It was startling to see this tough famous rapper giving such wise and simple advice. That thought has never left me and at the time, it was the exact right advice to move me across the threshold of my mind and leave worrying behind.

I'm a Positive Person, Now What?

I'm a Positive Person, Now What?

Being a positively charged and positively inclined person doesn't mean you have to be happy all the time or that nothing will go wrong if you just stay positive. 

Letting Sisyphus' Rock Roll

Letting Sisyphus' Rock Roll

The myth of Sisyphus for me represents all the ways we put obstacles in our way or disempower ourselves by telling stories to keep us small, stuck or in the shadows of our own lives. 

Turning Projections into Reflections

Turning Projections into Reflections

Spiritual Psychologist Billy Lee Meyers, Jr. defines projection as “what happens to us when we experience out of balance emotional reactions to a person or situation, then blame the person for our reaction.”

Drink Water + Breathe Self-Compassion

Drink Water + Breathe Self-Compassion

We need more people in this world practicing self-compassion, so we can build a more kind, forgiving and empathetic Earth. Each time we practice self-compassion, we teach our own ecosystem how to do it as well. The work we do within ourselves has ripple effects, even when we cannot see them.

You are...

You are...

When you see something good in another person, this is called "positive projection." It means what you see in them, is also within you. Take that in.

Put your blinders on!

Put your blinders on!

Those past twelve months were a blast and what I found was liberation and unending joy. Like buckets and buckets of joy. I found that releasing my own judgment about where I should be, what I should be doing, worrying about what someone else was doing--cleared up space in my mind.

You are a Success

You are a Success

It was not until I epically failed in a job and my ego took the hardest blow it had ever felt; did I know that my definition of success (and failure for that matter) had to be defined by me. It was as if all my work prior to this failure did not matter. The only thing that did matter was I did not have what it took to be successful in that job. Or so I thought at the time.

Make Peace with Yourself

Make Peace with Yourself

Making peace with ourselves, starts every minute of every day. We are not perfect beings, we make mistakes and we don’t always love ourselves as we should. Every day we can offer a tiny bit of peace and loving-kindness to ourselves. That peace and loving-kindness is transformative and it can heal the wounds inside of us that we have created.

The Gift of Synchronicity

The Gift of Synchronicity

Synchronicity was defined by Jung, years ago as "meaningful coincidences." The academic definition is: "The simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible casual connection."  

I believe fully in the idea of synchronicity.
