Knowing Your Vision Gives You Power
08Sep

Knowing Your Vision Gives You Power

When you have a clear vision for your life, what you really want, you then have the power to create it. Until then, you’re stuck with your internal dialogue about who you are, what your past was like, and what you are doing now and whether you feel you have a say how you interact […]

Starting From Nothing After COVID 19
28Apr

Starting From Nothing After COVID 19

Sometimes in business, we have to regroup. When we’re going 100 miles an hour in one direction and whammo!  Something goes wrong. Well, now we all know what that feels like. That’s a given.  Perhaps its time to start over? A restart can be just the thing when something isn’t working. Take time to get […]

From Depression to Happiness – My Story

THE VIDEO tells the story: I went through a very intense six month depression at 29 years old, and it became the most significant period of my life. From that time on, I discovered the secret to happiness and to the riddle of the human condition.  Riddle, because ultimately, it was a question I couldn’t […]

How to Find Meaning In Your Life When Life Seems Meaningless

A few years ago, I was wallowing in self-doubt and fear that I would never find my purpose, I didn’t know what I really wanted.  I only knew I wanted to live a bigger life, serve more people.  And then… I began my coaching program in 2016 to help women with anxiety and depression caused […]

Who Are Your Ideal Clients?
29Jan

Who Are Your Ideal Clients?

“When I first started coaching, I didn’t know who my clients were. I just knew I could help people with anxiety or depression.  Having been through a bout of severe depression, and finding the answer to it by training my mind, I knew I could coach people through it.   So I attracted clients who weren’t […]

A Course of Love – A Surprise
16Aug

A Course of Love – A Surprise

“The world as a state of being, as a whole, has entered a time, brought on largely by A Course in Miracles, in which readiness for miracle-mindedness is upon it. A Course in Miracles opened a door by threatening the ego.  All those who, with egos weakened, walked this world with the hope of leaving ego behind, with […]

The Guiltless World

The Guiltless World

Do you know you are not guilty of anything?  Have you accepted your innocence and become healed of the illusion of separation?In Chapter 13 of A Course in Miracles, we are given release from all guilt. When I first read this chapter, I was astonished.  I was coming out of depression and these words really […]

Coming Into The Light
13Aug

Coming Into The Light

Everywhere I look I read about the idea that there is only One Mind. This idea stems from the fact of singularity, or One Creator. I love it. I don’t know if this means anything to a human, split mind, but when you accept total responsibility for every thought you think, every experience you have, […]

Love to Give
13Aug

Love to Give

My only function here is to be happy.  Is that difficult?  At times, yes!  I cannot be happy if you are not.  I have to extend my light, my joy into your mind, because you are me!  I have recently taken up massage to offer my love and healing energy to everyone.  I find myself […]

Ahimsa…the practice of non-violence.
13Aug

Ahimsa…the practice of non-violence.

I was recently asked to write something about Ahimsa, or non-violence, by my yoga teacher. I am currently in massage school and this is a class I am taking. What is Ahimsa? Ahimsa: The idea that no one need suffer in order for me to be free. First of all, mind is singular. I am […]

The Third Jesus
13Aug

The Third Jesus

I was reading Deepak Chopra’s book, The Third Jesus the other day. I really liked the idea he started with, that Jesus is more than a historical figure and a theological icon, but that his real message is one of personal transformation leading to awakening, or enlightenment. The idea is obvious, but I wondered if Deepak knows […]

Who is the seeker?
13Aug

Who is the seeker?

There really isn’t any explanation available to describe the process of awakening. It isn’t a process.Ultimately, you are a seeker and you have been seeking for a very long time to find the answer to “the riddle of yourself”. But you must have set up the seeking, the seeker and the one being sought. You, […]

Simply Do This: Stay Uncertain
13Aug

Simply Do This: Stay Uncertain

In times of complete uncertainty, this is what helps me the most: Simply do this: Be still, and lay aside all thoughts of what you are and what God is; all concepts you have learned about the world; all images you hold about yourself. Empty your mind of everything it thinks is either true or […]

Freedom From Fear – The Power of Now
13Aug

Freedom From Fear – The Power of Now

My daily practice consists of the mind training of A Course in Miracles. This is an on-going practice of relinquishment of self-identity through the workbook lessons brilliantly organized by the author. In Eckart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now, he describes the mind that is ego. He also makes you stop and look at your own thought […]

How to Become Enlightened…continued

So, if you have done the work from the previous post, you can now, today, stop for a moment and just let go. All these ideas you had in your mind were just that. Ideas. They only had consequence in your mind. Cause and effect are never separate. One thought brings immediate results. This is […]

Release of Fear
13Aug

Release of Fear

It only takes about 15 minutes to get quiet and find an inner silence. This is a practice. It doesn’t have to take a long time. But just to set the tone for the day, to read a lesson or quiet the mind means you are dedicating your life to peace. Perfect peace is within […]

State of Grace
13Aug

State of Grace

Are you tired of an endless spiritual search that only seems to lead you into more confusion? Do you wonder when you will reap the fruits of your search and actually find the peace that is promised in the traditions that lead to enlightenment?

Fear Not: Its Valentine’s Day

Here’s a Valentines Day gift to yourself!The entire goal of the Course is peace. What is peace? Is it outside of you? Is it possible to achieve outer peace? Huh? If mind is singular and whole, how could peace be achieved in the outer? It can’t. You must go within and find the peace that […]

Give Up and Surrender
13Aug

Give Up and Surrender

Listening within is the key to your awakening. Certainty of who you are is always available to you and you have no need to do anything to find it. You really can’t change yourself. You are not two selves in conflict. Fear is made up and you must get wise to your own tendency to […]

Defenseless
13Aug

Defenseless

Healing is release from fear. The certainty that fear is not real is the premise upon which all healing rests. The one thing you never want to do is relinquish fear entirely because then, you, as you have constructed yourself, wouldn’t exist.You can’t really let go of fear, you can recognize that you made it […]

When I am healed, I am not healed alone

Healing is freedom. It is shared. Healing is communication, healing is strength.How wonderful to know that you only need ask for healing for it to occur. It isn’t hard, it doesn’t take time.

My Thoughts Do Not Mean Anything
13Aug

My Thoughts Do Not Mean Anything

Lesson 10 is one of the most helpful lessons in the Course. If you only did the first 10 lessons every day, you would awaken. This is because it applies to all the thoughts you think are your real thoughts. These are your thoughts of yourself as a separate identity, in a body, with conflicting […]

I Could See Peace Instead
13Aug

I Could See Peace Instead

This lesson entitled “I could see peace instead of this” is a confrontation. It first of all implies that you are not “seeing” peace. The mind is always upset about something, unless it is at peace. That’s logical, but joy is also peace, so when you are not joyful, you are not at peace. Be […]

Why have faith?
13Aug

Why have faith?

Man is a faithful animal, but what does he put his faith in? Faith means that in spite of the situation you are in and the doubts you are thinking, and the fears you harbor, you have a belief that there is a bigger thing going on. I want to energize this some more because […]

Do you need a spiritual teacher?
13Aug

Do you need a spiritual teacher?

You are as God created you, and so is every living thing you look upon, regardless of the images you see. This sentence from Chapter 31, The Final Vision, states that what you behold as sickness, pain, weakness, suffering and loss “is but temptation to perceive yourself defenseless and in hell. Yield not to this, […]
