What is the key to dealing with Life’s Challenges?

April 20, 2018

We can’t avoid pain, but we can prevent amplifying it to high levels of suffering. How? By choosing a state-of-mind of accepting what is in the present moment. Furthermore, you don’t have to like everything that happens to you. However, you can learn to accept what is your reality in the present moment, not ignore…

How does your inner child influence you?

April 6, 2018

In my years of mentoring, I have noticed that the majority of my clients are influenced by their inner child primarily when it comes to emotionally charged moments. Think about it for a moment. When we are attached to an experience with strong emotions, our rational, responsive self is clouded by a state of drawing…

Are you experiencing growing pains?

March 16, 2018

As you journey the path of applying the principles of mindfulness to everyday living, inevitably you grow in mind, body, and spirit.

Are you meeting all of your obligations?

February 16, 2018

What about the obligation to your Self? Too often we find ourselves in a routine where we are running trying to fulfill all of our obligations to work, to our families and our friends.

Are you Feeling Annoyed? 

February 9, 2018

Can you think of someone who immediately elicits an emotion of irritation or annoyance? You think of all the instances to support this feeling, and a sensation is felt in the body by the mere thought or sight of this person. You have wired the brain to have this response by instilling this programming. They…

Invite more Laughter into your Life

January 22, 2018

Life is filled with serious challenges and experiences, and sometimes a sense of humor can lighten a situation and encourage a sense of detachment.

Build Bridges not Walls

November 20, 2017

I want you to look at your present moment life experience, and ask yourself, “Am I building bridges or building walls?“ As you explore your inner world free of judgment, observing your interactions in the current experience as an observer ask yourself, “Am I isolating myself in my own beliefs, and programming or am I…

Mindfully Respond to Life and Choose not to React

October 13, 2017

Have you noticed how several individuals can view the same news piece on television or read the same article and walk away with a different reaction and interpretation? We each see the world through a different lens based on such factors as what we have lived and experienced, what we think to be true, and…

Choose Peace in the Midst of Chaos

Choose the Power of Positivity

September 15, 2017

Today, I want you to set the intention to have a “No Complaints” policy. Watch, with awareness, your language and be on the lookout for negative or judgmental expressions.

What is Enlightenment

September 1, 2017

Have you heard this Zen saying? “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.” To me, this is a gentle reminder that to be enlightened does not make you somehow less human it simply changes your human experience for the better. How So? Each moment is lived with a greater awareness…

Choose Peace Not Fear

August 18, 2017

To be a peacemaker, we have to choose to be peaceful and be at peace. A very tall order when all around us we see strife and turmoil; however, that is when it is most needed. Concentrate on what you desire in the world not what you fear. Ask yourself these questions, “How can I…

Live Your Truths

August 16, 2017

Our ego has its idea of who we are. This idea has a powerful influence on us both positively and negatively. The ego supports you in moving forward and driving you to succeed. It can also have you believe that your definition of yourself is comprised of all that you own, your profession, and how…
