Some of my most treasured moments have been the conversations I’ve had with folks from my grandparents’ generation. I especially like to ask elderly couples what their secret is to a long-lasting marriage, or relationship.
Their answers always put a smile on my face. Usually they would say that they slowly got to know each other, to see if they had the same values and decide if they were compatible.
Sadly, much has changed over the years. These days people no longer seem willing to put in the work and commitment it takes to build a strong foundation for a healthy, enduring relationship. Instead, we rush into romantic connections without thinking and seldom questioning the other person or their motives. Read the rest of this entry »
Have you ever considered the fact that you always have a best friend around you – at all times, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? You do! But you may not ever have thought that way. We have no reason to ever feel isolated or lonely.
I remember growing up never having a best friend. Or having one, but then losing that friend to other, more normal, interesting or sociable people. And then I always wound up feeling sad.
But all along I already had a best friend: the Divine Presence, the Universe, God. This presence manifests itself through people, places, things and events in our everyday lives. This is how we know it is there. Read the rest of this entry »
We all have a soul light that is eternal and bright. It shines through our physical being when we are aligned with our authentic self. We are all individually created to be different from one another. If we can remember that, especially when others appear to reject us, we’ve accessed the key to unlock our soul archetype.
When we compare ourselves to others, we get off track and can try to muster up a fictitious self that becomes impossible to uphold. It creates expectations that trap us, and can actually prevent us from shining our own, unique light into the world.
Have you ever felt like you are different, or don’t fit in? The first step to finding your authentic self, and tracing back to who you are as a unique soul, is to detach from others. Sometimes there is a feeling of loneliness associated with this, but if you keep moving forward, and through it, and trust in what’s unfolding, you will land in a place where true confidence resides – the kind that can never be taken away. You will gain a self-respect that will allow your gifts and talents to flourish. Read the rest of this entry »
Many of you desire a romantic partner in your life and we know that this can be a beautiful experience. But we also know that sometimes in your life it isn’t about being with someone outside of yourself. It is about being with that which you are – creating a beautiful relationship with your soul, with your spirit, with your higher self.
Let go of your attachments to wanting things to be different than they are. Be present in your life now. Find the gifts that this present moment brings you, whether you are in a relationship or not.
You are whole and complete. You are an aspect of divinity. There is nothing broken and nothing needs to be fixed. And there is no one you need to complete you. You are complete. You are the perfect and the perfection. Read the rest of this entry »
It is the memories from your past lives that trigger emotional discord. In this New Earth energy, you have the power to clear out that energy and align with all that you are. Rise up out of your ego. Trust and know that you are perfection. That not fitting in, or feeling disconnected from your human friends, is only an illusion.
This disconnection is an opportunity for you to heal another layer, another level of discord within your soul. Remember your soul holds all of the memories of all of the lifetimes, eternities, that you have lived – not only here on the physical earth plane, but also in other dimensions of time and space.

I recently came across an article about spiritual seekers who travel to distant lands to achieve such a state of bliss and inner peace. But in my experience you really don’t have to go all the way to some exotic destination to achieve a higher state of consciousness.
When I am alone, I often find myself in a state of complete and utter bliss. When I am by myself, my energy is my own. I feel centered and complete, as if on my own little retreat. I have always felt this way and I savor the quiet moments of my day.
With a willing heart to carve out some time in your busy day, you can center yourself by being mindful and allowing your thoughts to simply come and go. Simply take a moment of solitude and go with the flow. Read the rest of this entry »
So many people are in relationships with the wrong person. They hang onto someone, just waiting for things to change or be different. However that is usually not what happens. People do not change for another person, and if they do, it never lasts or works out in the long run. People can only change themselves for themselves, in order to make it last.
Hanging onto the wrong person in your life – whether it be a friend, family, spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, and even a boss, can hold you back from having your best and highest good in life. It can keep the amazing blessings that are waiting for you from coming in. Read the rest of this entry »
After my youngest daughter left home, I certainly had a case of the ’empty nest syndrome’ for a short period of time. I chided myself, for I felt the same way when my oldest daughter moved out. I had that feeling of ‘someone was missing’ and ‘nothing is the same.’ However, this time it was different, for it dawned on me that I had never lived alone before.
