A couple of years ago, I spent an afternoon playing with my then five-year-old niece. We were in a land of make believe: dragons, unicorns, and sword fighting. As children do, she had (and still has) a wild imagination and a love of unicorns. That day, I remember her saying, “No Auntie, pretend.” Oh how we lose our creativity, our playfulness, our imagination and a belief in magic as we get older. Much of our focus is usually work, bills, kids and stress. And when things do not happen fast enough, we become even more frustrated. Read More

The Power of Faith
With faith and unwavering belief, nothing’s impossible
I have always held the belief that all my needs in life would be taken care of. I believed my parents, who have both passed, would never have let me become homeless or starve. I believed, even in my younger years when things were tight, scraping change together for a meal, I would never starve. Read More

Limiting Beliefs, Breaking Free and Living Life to the Fullest
The discussion of limiting beliefs seems to be a hot topic these days. Everything I have read suggests we already know what our liming beliefs are. It’s easy for most of us to say we have a fear of rejection or a fear of failure, or we will never lose weight or men only like skinny women. Limiting beliefs, such as these and more, can paralyze us and keep us from living a life true to ourselves. Read More

The Healer Within
Learn to heal yourself with alternate healing methods
We all have the innate ability to heal ourselves. If you’re seeking a natural option or alternative to Western medicine, devote time to learning a variety of healing modalities. There are many types of healing modalities from acupuncture and acupressure to chakra and healing touch, to shamanic healing and Reiki. Not all healing modalities will be for you, however. Take what resonates and leave the rest.
With each healing modality, there are practitioners who specialize in specific forms of alternative or energy healing. Every healer is unique, bringing their individualized gifts to the world. Read More

Your beliefs will keep you trapped in a vicious cycle of imprisonment. Leave you feeling there is no way out, searching, side-to-side, and all around, with no end or exit in sight.
It feels others keep you trapped but that’s not true. It is ourselves. Break free. Read More

Ok, actually I set myself free on November 11, 2016. Only a little over a week ago.
The last couple of years have been a trying time for me. My health, my relationships, my drive and motivation have been challenged. It’s never ending…it seems. I know I keep speaking of this but writing is therapeutic and I want to share my struggles should it help someone else.
But each “challenge” is an opportunity to grow and learn, and boy, am I learning. Growing pains such as it is.
I recently hurt someone close to me. Of course it wasn’t intentional. It never is, is it? I didn’t think what I had said and did through and when I done….after the fact, I was sick. Why did I do it? I know better. Oh my goodness, I am the worst person on the planet. Why am I even alive? I don’t deserve to live and many other horrible thoughts went through my mind. I flogged and beat myself up for weeks wishing I was a better person, vowing I would be a better person to the point if I had to suffer in order to help others that would be what I deserved. I deserved to be punished (as I wrote this a saying went through my mind…”we don’t need to catch ourselves on fire to keep another person warm.”) Read More

I’ve been blaming myself this whole time. I believed, I whole heartedly believed, I’m this horrible person.
You have hurt me over the years only because I allowed you to. I believed everything you told me I was. I gave you my power. Today, I’m taking my power back. I see you now with such clarity. Hurt people, hurt people.
Yes, I am guilty too. I have said and done hurtful things to others. Why did I do it? Why do I continue to do it? Because I hurt. Hurt people, hurt people.
I’m doing the best I can as I believe you are. You were there during good times and bad but I have grown into someone you can no longer tolerate. Hurt people, hurt people. Read More
