Can you laugh at yourself? See the humor in your “flaws”? If I had to rate attractive qualities in a person, this is a big one for me. Last week I met a guy and we had a great conversation about Human Design, and afterwards I realized one of the reasons the conversation was so […]

Have you been hearing about The Akashic Records?

November 19, 2013

Have you recently heard about Akashic Records? I had been hearing the words but had no idea what they were. So when one of my speakers on the Love Myself Love My Life summit said she could speak on them or on money, I said Akashic Records please! Time I found out what all the […]

Are you an ugly duckling or a swan?

November 11, 2013

As I was talking to our last guest on the Love Myself Love My Life summit about knowing your higher self, I realized that one of the problems so many of us have is either thinking we are something we aren’t or trying to be something we are not. And that would make it hard […]

I had no idea how powerful GRATITUDE is, crazy!

November 4, 2013

I had no idea how powerful Gratitude can be, in so many areas of our lives. I just interviewed Kim Serafini (no relation that we know of) who is The Queen of Gratitude. And yes I will admit, I found her by accident and had to contact her just based on our shared last name, […]

What are you afraid of admitting about yourself?

October 30, 2013

I know you want to show up the best way you can. Of course you do. You want your best qualities on display and to be the best YOU you can be. You also know you aren’t perfect. So what happens is that we try to hide the parts of us that we don’t consider […]

What are you afraid of?

October 23, 2013

Recently I had a conversation with Rhonda Britten about fear. Rhonda is a celebrity life coach (she’s coached on over 600 episodes of reality tv) and had a REALLY unbelievable childhood trauma that eventually led her to attempt suicide three times. As she laid there in the psychiatric ward, she realized she had to figure […]

What if you don’t feel called for a big purpose?

October 14, 2013

I know you hear a lot about sharing your unique gifts with the world and  making a difference. I talk about this and a lot of others talk about this in big way (e.g. Oprah).  But maybe you don’t have this big, change-the-world gift. Maybe you think you should. Or that you do, but you […]

What is your life’s purpose?

October 11, 2013

Do you ever wonder what your life’s purpose is? Or if what you are doing is the right path for you? I have wondered this many times. I feel like I’m on the right path, but I also sometimes wonder if I’m deluding myself. As I was preparing for the Love Myself Love My Life […]

What was the worst PAIN you’ve had in life and how did it change you?

September 25, 2013

For most of us, we have had an extremely painful event in our life. Usually it is around a break-up/divorce or a death, or a huge disappointment. Maybe and likely there is more than one, but I would like you to gently think about the one that comes to mind first. For me, it is […]

September 17, 2013

So if you could have started something 5 years ago, what do you wish you would have done? A healthier lifestyle? Pottery classes? A new job/business? A degree? If you HAD gone ahead and done it, where would you be now? Off some medications and having more energy? A career you are passionate about? Having […]

How does asking How Can I Be of Service help you directly?

September 6, 2013

A lot of times we (myself included) feel overwhelmed by our dreams. Or things we want to do. Or even just meeting new people.  We put a lot of pressure on ourselves because we want to do things really well and feel good about the way we did it. So we often start thinking about […]

What if I have TOO MANY dreams?

July 29, 2013

We’ve been talking about going for your dreams the last few e-zines – about how it doesn’t matter what we’ve done or not done in the past, how we get started, and how we have to schedule them in our busy lives or they won’t happen. But what if you have so many different ideas that you don’t even […]

Have you Scheduled your Dreams?

July 8, 2013

Yeah “Scheduling Dreams” doesn’t sound right does it. It takes something fun and exciting and makes it boring and predictable. Or does it? If you think about what you get done in any given day or week, it’s the things you have created time for in your schedule that happen, at least with any regularity. […]

How do I get started?

July 1, 2013

Last week we talked about how what you do TODAY is what matters most. It isn’t what you have done or didn’t do, it’s what you do each and every today. And then I mentioned that getting started is often the hardest part. I think this is because most of the time we think of […]

Pollyanna those annoying behaviors

May 28, 2013

Over the past week I decided to read the third book in the Pollyanna series. Most of us know of Pollyanna and we kind of make fun of her for always seeing something cheerful in the gloom when there really isn’t anything to be grateful for. In reading it, I think she always made sense, […]

I’m lazy

April 8, 2013

I hear this as the reason for failure so many times from my women clients. They know what they need to do, they just don’t do it. It is especially true when it comes to weight loss. This is the #1 reason that they cite. So I wanted to talk a little about this in […]
