It’s taken me forever to write another blog post simply because I really get that no two people are the same!! I knew this but it felt nebulous, or casual in a way. How can I write posts about growing spiritually if we are all different? The guidance I give is based on my personal experience and will be true for some people but not for all. No information or way of living will ever apply to everyone, and yet there is a great assumption out there that it will.
I am unique. You are unique. Pretty basic stuff right? But we judge ourselves and we judge others – all for our differences. We forget the fact that no two of us are alike, no two designs are the same. I bet if we were to place each one of us side by side – we’d create an amazing puzzle that interlocked perfectly.

I was at my wits end trying to sink my teeth into a pressing life pattern in order to take a huge bite out of it. I finally did nail it, but it took a lot of digging. In doing so, I came to realize that the beliefs, emotions and feelings I experienced are very old – way before this lifetime. Continue reading “Lifting High Enough to Get the Big Picture”
In her book, The Power of the Spoken Word, Florence Scovel Shinn says: “Be Strong! Fear not: Fear is man’s only adversary.” She believes our wordis our wand, filled with magic and power, and our word is the only weapon we can use to defeat our lions. “You face defeat whenever you are fearful!” Many of us at one time or another find ourselves at the mercy of fear, as in:Continue reading “Turn Fear Into Faith: Wisdom From Florence Scovel Shinn”
Darkness would have us believe it’s engaged in an all-out war with the light. Is it true? Is there actually a war going on between darkness and light? Darkness (our own fear) would have us believe it will prevail, that it’s stronger than the light. It uses our love against us and others by shutting us down, enabling us to cause harm to and/or turn us away from the ones we love. Continue reading “Facing Our Fear of the Dark”
This can be a very stressful decision – Do I speak up or say nothing? I have struggled with finding my voice for many years. I have also been healing that which stops me from speaking up for myself. My tendency would be to “stuff it” down and say nothing out of fear of reprisal. I have recently been in a situation that challenged me yet again to speak up. I share the following in hope that it will help others sort through this dilemma!Continue reading “Speaking up for Yourself – Easier Said Than Done!”
Just the nature of “being in pursuit . . .” implies something is missing, akin to “the grass is always greener on the other side.” The one in pursuit believes he or she lacks the very thing they are pursuing. In the midst of pursuit, the very thing you are after, in this case happiness, will always elude you. That is the nature of pursuit. It’s only when we give up the search, in the absence of looking, and in the stillness, can we actually obtain what we were seeking.Continue reading “The Pursuit of Happiness Will Not End in Happiness.

I have been asking myself lately: What does freedom look like in my life? How would I know if I were free? And, Why is freedom so important to me? In the past, I associated freedom with the physical, through my body. Running has always felt like freedom to me, however there have been few times in my life that my body actually felt the ease of running. What does physical freedom really feel like then? But what about emotional freedom or spiritual freedom? Have I ever experienced these freedoms?Continue reading “Freedom: Now You Can Have the Keys!”
This is a tough subject and the only way through it, I feel, is to be frank. Please only take what resonates with you and discard the rest. No one really wants to be told they are the source of their own misery and suffering. If you are blaming others and circumstances for your predicaments and unhappiness – you are missing a golden opportunity for some amazing changes and growth to take place in your life. Misery and suffering come from within but it’s notwho you are and it’s not usually what you think it is – typically.

Some people say it’s selfish or vain to love yourself. You may have even heard it’s bad to love yourself. This is a mythanda lie! Many people don’t even know what it means or what loving yourself entails. Imagine the looks you might get from people you know if you were to suddenly announce out loud: “I love myself!!” while proudly sporting a big smile. A likely response from your friends might be: “Oh . . . that’s nice.” at the same time thinking: “Who does she think she is?” Continue reading “Am I Selfish if I Love Myself?

Negative beliefs are very destructive to ourselves and others, mostly because we believe they are true and identify with them when we use “I am” in front of things like: a burden, weak, not worthy, a mistake . . . It’s not true. You are not a burden! Your negative thoughts are a burden – more likely. Wars are fought over beliefs, we would die for some of them, believing ourselves to be “right” to the death. Many times we find these beliefs we are suffering over aren’t even ours. They are ones we picked up from our parents, family, friends, teachers and the media.Continue reading “Healing Negative Beliefs”
Not so long ago, I realized I was lacking a relationship and connection with God. I may have even been a bit skeptical, or perhaps had unfinished business. I knew about synchronicity, coincidence, The Secret, The Law of Attraction, the Universe, etc., but my interest was mainly from a point of view: That’s just how things work here. It wasn’t personal, I just knew this stuff existed. I had faith, but it was limited to only what I could achieve alone. I was the master of my life and the master of my destiny!Continue reading “Building a Connection with God”
Disassociation can happen when we are triggered and traumatized. We can fragment without being aware that a part of us has left, losing a sense of who we are. It’s like being in the world but not of it, you’re here but you’re not, going through the motions but not feeling much of anything. You may have a moment of clarity and realize much of your life has been lived without you.Continue reading “The Outsider – Understanding Feelings of Separation”
My blog contains insights I’ve gained along The Path to My Heartwhich I hope will be of benefit to you. It’s a continuation of the story in my book which lives on in my experiences as a timeline of sorts that moves and grows with me.
It’s also a place for me to share my experiences with healing negative beliefs, ending vicious cycles, facing fear and allowing negative emotions to surface without judgment on my path to achieving wholeness. Please join me if you are interested in finding your own truth and a possibility for lasting healing!
It’s possible for you to live your life:
filled with possibility
free from negative thinking
with true choice
WARNING: There is no pill to wipe away sorrow or heal repeating vicious patterns in our lives. No magician can rid us of negative beliefs or dark emotions. It’s just not possible to wish these things away. We can intend and have a willingness – these both work in getting us started into making lasting changes, changes for a more fulfilling life.
I will also be referring to and quoting information from my own Resources as they have contributed greatly to my awakening!
Please only take what resonates and disregard the rest.
