September 2011 = Back to School

2 Sep

September always feels like a new beginning to me. It’s like back to school for adults. A second chance to start the year anew. It’s the end of summer and the beginning of the rest of the year. Another opportunity to make the year mean something. There is still time to…..

Take risks, especially if they are scary.   
Discover your passion and pursue it.
Repair a damaged friendship.
Get organized.
Say you’re sorry and mean it.
Learn a language.
Volunteer at that organization.
Start eating healthy.
Start that exercise program.
Learn Yoga.

Everyday we wake up is another chance to “go back to school”. What are you going to do with your new start?

Make September mean something. Happy September.

Rose Quartz = LOVE and Power

23 Aug

“Don’t let the soft pink color and soothing energy of this stone fool you into discounting its power. Rose Quartz is one of the most important stones of our time” Naisha Ashian

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson

If not now…when?

Live Your Truth

27 Jul

LIVE YOUR TRUTH by listening to your HEART.

Living your truth is really about being authentic and living your passion. Many times when I ask people what they are passionate about they say they don’t know…but they really do. However…

We are usually so much “in our head” that we get disconnected from our heart. The heart is where the passion lies. Quiet your brain to open your heart to find your passion and then live your truth. How do you quiet your brain? Meditation….. and YOGA.

Bridges

21 Jul

Magnificent and Magical

I was on a trip in New Mexico recently and visited this amazing bridge in the city of Taos, New Mexico. Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, if you are ever anywhere near this place you must absolutely see this.

Pictures simply can’t do this bridge justice because…A. the size of the bridge and the gorge below it are so expansive it is impossible to get into one photograph and B. The beauty of this place is without question nothing compared to any photograph you could take. It is absolutely magnificent, decadent and magical.

Oddly enough, when you approach this bridge you don’t realize that there is anything special about it until you are actually ON the bridge. You drive up to it and then you look down and it takes your breathe away….and before you know it you are on the other side.

Life is like that. You go over bridges…you leave one side of a life situation and before you know it you’ve crossed the bridge and it’s over. Sometimes there are bridges that you cross that you didn’t know you’ve crossed until you’ve crossed them…

Bridges are structures that help us get from one side of something to the other without falling. In LIFE bridges are the support systems and processes that we use in order to help us cross to the other side. BUILD BRIDGES. Use love, compassion, communication, good nutrition, exercise, meditation, good friends, laughter and mindful living to build your bridge. Build Bridges.

Kindness

6 Jul

Today practice and encourage kindness in all interactions and see how it feels. Kindness is always possible…even when you are not being treated with kindness…you can still behave kindly…always. It’s not always easy but it’s always possible. Try it.
