A friend sent me this Zen Proverb earlier in the week and I thought that it would be the perfect theme for this week's message and Breathwork class. On a Spiritual level, we all understand that our biggest lessons, challenges, and obstacles are here to teach us so that we can expand and grow. But sometimes we just wanna say F#@% right off! Enough with the damn learning....just open the path to more freedom, ease, and flow please! ;-) But the truth is, without the darkness, th
I recall my favorite spiritual teacher, Wayne Dyer, mentioning that EGO stands for Edging God Out. I have always loved that.
Our Ego, when balanced, is an important part of who we are and can give us a healthy sense of self-worth and personal power. When imbalanced, it can cause us to feel less than or better than others. Both are untrue. The truth is, we are ALL equal and yet our Ego loves to separate us from others.
Feeling less than, ensures that we stay stuck in compari
Most of you have heard the acronym for FEAR. False Evidence Appearing Real. But If you've been caught up in fearful thoughts or experiences, it can feel VERY real and there appears to be plenty of evidence! At times, fear takes over our body causing adrenalin to rush through our system, taking us on a fight or flight journey that often overrides our logical mind. The good news is that much of our fear is simply stored up reactions that we have picked up along the way, a stres
I recall my aunt Ellen lending me a book called Emanuelle's Book when I was 20 years old. I devoured every word and those teachings completely changed my life! I went on to read at least 3 of the channeled series, and they answered so many of my questions about life, living, and the truth of who we really are and why we're here. I went on to spend the next 30 years reading perhaps a hundred books and listening to various teachers and healers speak about our Spiritual Essence.
A Course In Miracles (ACIM) which is a teaching program for spiritual development, talks about a Miracle being "a shift in perspective from fear to love." It goes on to say that "there is no order of difficulty in Miracles." Most of us, myself included, were brought up with the idea that a Miracle was some unexpected and magnificent occurrence that cannot be explained in words. A Miracle was thought to be rare and only happened to very few. But if we take this new approach th
When I was a health coach, I talked a lot about how family DNA and genetics make up a part of our overall wellness. I discussed that genetics play a smaller role than we realize, making up approximately 25% of our health story. The rest comes down to lifestyle choices. That's pretty powerful and means that much of our longevity can be positively affected by our own actions. As I've delved into working with people using Breathwork and other healing modalities, it is very clear
The Law of Attraction teachings really screwed me up! Focus on what you really want and tap into how it feels to have that very thing, then watch it show up effortlessly into your life...or something like that!? Sounds simple enough. I even found that it works some of the time. The problem is that when we do manifestation meditations or exercises regularly, and things "don't" go our way, it's easy to beat ourselves up and begin to question our very manifestation skills. "Well
As a sick kid growing up, I remember being tired a lot and often struggled with frequent colds, earaches, allergies and chest infections. While I am certain now that some of this had to do with my diet and food sensitivities, and that modern medicine would only cover up the problem rather than look at its cause...I am grateful now to get a deeper perspective on what was happening. I was sad and it began to manifest as illness. We could ask which came first, the emotional stru
Have you ever questioned what the Universe has planned for you? Do you often feel like it has a mind of its own, and that it seems to override all of your plans, goals, and intentions? What I am seeing more and more with people that I work with and in my own life, is a new way of being. This energy of letting go, trusting, and having FULL faith that God, The Universe, Our Guides, actually have our back and that if we would allow it, we'd be directed some place far better than
