  CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD FREE MEDITATION TO AMPLIFY YOUR RELEASE and FLOW ABILITIES. WHAT IS OUR NATURE? It is our nature to love, heal, reproduce, digest, process, and eliminate. It is also our nature to grow, die and transform, just as all the trees and animals do. It is our nature to feel pain and pleasure, to express a wide spectrum of emotions. We are NOT designed to hold, to supress or avoid feeling our emotions. When we are not living aligned with our True Nature, what is natural for us, we cause our stress hormone to be elevated. When we are under chronic stress we actually block the flow of energy, slow down all those natural processes and lower our vitality. Healing is dampened when we go against our nature. Flow IS our nature. Our bodies and minds are happiest and most healthy when we simply ARE present and fully engaged...

What are you enthusiastic about? What lights you up? What would you do for free? What are you motivated to get done and you don’t need any pushing to do it? We are all here designed to function at our best when we live guided by what we feel naturally enthusiastic about. These are the things that are authentically aligned with our heart and soul's joy. Often times we instead live by what other people think we should be doing. We give into our parent, family and culture’s projection on us of what is right and what is better for us to be or do. Religion is an example of this. For example, if a woman is gay, she might suppress her desires to be with another woman. A son raised by a family of lawyers, might suppress his yearning to be an artist for fear that he be rejected...

Stress is a perception that we are in danger, that something or a situation is of danger, unsafe and threatening to us. Our body is perfectly designed to move us away from things, situations, people and places in our lives that are dangerous and make us feel unsafe so that we may survive, be safe, calm and productive in our lives. Chronic stress, feeling threatened over a long term duration, is hurtful to our body and mind. We are not designed to endure chronic stress over time. We are designed to experience stress under a short term duration. If we feel in danger all day or perceive a person, place or relationship as threatening and not move away from it, our body experiences adrenal fatigue and the feeling of being overwhelmed and shut down in order to survive. Our bodies are designed to perceive stress, move away...

Inside of us is a powerful well of resources designed to manifest our dream life so we may all live heaven on earth. There are certain activities and thoughts we can choose to create more of what we truly desire in our lives. According to Heartmath research, our hearts interpret how we are feeling and rather loudly as the heart is 50 times stronger electromagnetically than any other organ in the body. Therefore we can connect to how our heart feels throughout the day to gain insight on how we feel. When we feel relaxed and calm about something, the heart reflects that and calms. When we feel fearful and anxious, the heart tenses up and contracts. Our nature is to process and release. When we hold chronic stress in our body, and hold emotions such as resentment, guilt and shame, and don't forgive, our...

Did you know heart disease is the number one leading cause of death in the USA? While 1 in 31 American women dies from breast cancer each year, 1 in 3 dies of heart disease. Much of the reasons why we die of heart disease is diet, belief and lifestyle related. We can prevent heart disease by quitting smoking, managing our blood sugar, getting our blood pressure under control, lowering our cholesterol, staying active, losing weight and eating healthy. A lot of these behavioral changes would be easier to accomplish if we valued and loved ourselves more. Too often we place other people in our lives before ourselves. We forget to make time to prioritize self-love, daily exercise, food that nourishes our heart and soul, and managing our stress levels. Sometimes we do not prioritize nurturing our emotional heart and this affects our heart health also. We can...

                              Each one of us is a vital collection of powerful interconnected molecules of energy in our vast universe. Each one of us has the power to manifest more peace, love, balance, harmony, connection and profound healing on our planet.

The word Love has many different meanings.               We experience the love hormone, oxytocin, when we gaze into one another's eyes in a non-judgmental way with full presence. According to Dr. Michel Odent, a mother who carries her newborn child on her chest and breastfeeds her baby experiences the highest levels of love hormone. Copulation that leads to orgasm and a loving embrace with complete vulnerability and surrender oozes with love hormone. Touch and affection with hugs and kisses stimulate the love hormone big time!   Love is a strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties.     Love can also be the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another such as the brotherly concern for another. Love can be felt through a person's adoration of God. Love is everywhere...
