If something’s weighing you down, it’s likely mirrored in your environment as a mess that is perpetual. Or, it’s stuck in the air around you, making things around you feel heavy and stifled.

Either way, you have to let it go in order to flourish!!!

If you let go of the things that are making you feel heavy on the outside- junk, clutter and stuff- you open the doors to let go of the things making you feel heavy on the inside.

Let things go. I know you can.

I don’t want to be flippant and say it can solve every problem on its own, but I will say with great certaintly that it will greatly support the solving of any problem you have!

let things go

It can be the hardest thing in the world to let go of things, you know?

Even things that are terrible, life-dragging and soul sucking.

The manic boss, the horrible relationship, the old clothes, the piles of bad memories and junk-  all have a tendancy to stick around even after we say- swear- promise- plead, even- that we are are done with them.

Why?

It makes no sense, you know?

I’ve often only figured out why after I’ve forced myself- or have been forced- to let things go.  Continue Reading…

No, silly, I am not going to tell you how to get materially-greedy-obsessed.  But I am going to tell you that I don’t think that material things are spiritually or morally bad.  And I also feel strongly that there’s no reason why we all can’t have more of what we need and want, whatever it may be.

I’m not a fan of the word “manifesting” as it’s gotten entangled with New Age incomplete-feeling ideas,  mixed up with reasons to be self-obsessed, greedy or more…

But today, let’s talk about “manifesting”… in its purest form!

You need something.  It appears somehow.

While I don’t believe any mortal being knows the sure-fire recipie to manifesting anything and everything,  I have seen for myself there are a few ways that “manifestation” tends to happen more easily and predictably.

succulents

The shapes, colors and sizes of these divine, water-storing, plush-leaved geometric wonders are endless.  Succulents are often thought to be the most “prosperous” of plants and given the fact that they store rich nutrients and hydration and can weather storms and heat alike, I believe the title is well deserved.

Today, a little succulent inspiration and some vital how-to’s can have you growing your own today!!! Continue Reading…

How do you know when you’ve succeeded?

I never used to know… I mean, for me success was this very far-off concept that could almost never be attained…. It was how I stayed motivated.

Have you been there, tossing the idea of success so far out into the future that its nearly impossible to get there?

I have a friend who- after triumphantly surviving a life-shaking illness and since that day when health returned, success is defined as “feeling fully self-expressed every day.  I don’t want to miss a chance to get my message across in my art as much as possible…”

Another friend’s success is winning an award, a great-big-famous award that looms in the distance.

For me, success is something else…

And for you, I bet it is, too.

But… do you know what success looks like as it arrives?

I definitely did not know!  And I suffered and struggled because I couldn’t see what I had staring me in the face.

If you aren’t sure what it looks like to succeed, you might miss lots of successes that move you forward…

So, today, a little artful visualization about success can cue up a season of awesome dreams-come-to-life! Continue Reading…

I had a situation recently where I should have spoken up, but I didn’t.   In fact, I had a few of these situations in the last few weeks.

These vague, weighty, unexpressed emotions weight heavy on a person when they’re bottled up, you know?

You’d think by now I’d just speak up when I need to… but sometimes I’ve found myself unsure of what to say or caught off guard and then… blah… it’s all a vague mess.

For myself it comes down to one big concept:

Emotional Intelligence.

It seems I needed more of it, still do need more…

…and perhaps we all do?

After all, if you can’t really say what you need to say with the amount of clarity that it takes to say it, and if you can’t sit in your position and hear out what other people think and feel and truly listen, then you really, by default, become victimized by life.

I did become quite a victim.  As a victim- defensive, guarded and closed-minded- very little good can happen.

So, today’s big question: Do you speak up when you should? And… even bigger and bolder… do you not speak up because you don’t know how to speak up or you fear the consequences of speaking up? Continue Reading…

(Doug Aitken’s YOU)

I say this non-stop, “Your home is a mirror of your life.”  I am also big on the reminder that “the people in your life are a mirror of you.”

This has never failed to be true.  The only time it’s failed me is when I’ve refused to believe it is true.

There was no way I was a heartless, dismissive, rude, angry, stingy, emotionally cut-off, game-playing…

But…alas… I was.

I’ve found that the more you can look clearly into the mirror, the better it will serve you. Even if it shows you lots of flaws.

Today, I wonder… What is the mirror of your life showing you?

You use that reflection- if you see it clearly-  to make the changes that will matter.  Continue Reading…

It’s been a while since I’ve talked into my computer to all of you, yes, in my version of YouTube videos!   The whole You Tube is going through a big evolution soon but in the meantime… there was a big thing I learned in the last three weeks that is too good not to share…

If you are doing a lot of what you love, being “healthy” and all of it and still feel like you are dragging… Maybe you are in your head too much and leaving out the rest of life?

I was, shockingly, doing just that.

It’s the most pleasantly powerful way I’ve found to expand live in an amazing way!
