In my past, it has been a struggle to be able to trust someone and accept myself completely. Growing up with two brothers, somehow the message I got growing up was that girls were supposed to be "nice" and this taught me to be quiet and not stand up for myself and say what I really wanted to say. Later on this translated over into my first sexual experience in my early teens. I was petrified at how this older boy took an interest in me and I actually did not want it to happen, however I froze and didn't say anything. I later on felt so angry, sad, terror and disgust--- for not running away, kicking or screaming for him to not touch me and also for what had happened-that I allowed to happen. This incident caused me to lose trust in myself, that I would discover...

You know that feeling when you meet a person and you feel an instant connection or repulsion? That’s your intuition at work. Do you receive a gut feeling about things, and then ignore it? Imagine living aligned to your true heart’s desires and what brings you clarity and a sense of lightness. We’re all born with an internal navigation system. In our society, most of us are too wrapped up in our thoughts to be able to tune into our vital advisor. It’s never too late to strengthen your intuition, as it is our true essential nature TO BE INTUITIVE, just as all animals are. What your intuition IS: That little voice inside when you are waking up in the morning that reminds you of something important you have to do today AND that inner voice that gives you the "red flags" when you are going out on a...

  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 is Adrenal Fatigue? Adrenal fatigue is a term that's used to describe when your adrenal glands (the glands that sit on top of your kidneys and produce Cortisol, the stress hormone) are overworked.  Your adrenal glands play a key role in helping you control stress and maintain energy throughout the day. When these small but important glands malfunction, you may start to notice the telltale signs of adrenal fatigue. What are some signs of Adrenal Fatigue? Decreased energy A weakened immune system Lowered libido Mood changes Inability to handle stress Weight gain Feeling depressed How Can I Re-Energize and Restore My Adrenals In The Morning? Give your Adrenals a rest by activating your Parasympathetic Nervous System, the healing and restoring hormone called Oxytocin. This is the system that operates when you are in a state of love, gratitude and fully present in the moment without fear or worry. It is the opposite of the Stress...

Are you settling for an average and not-so-exciting life or do you feel grateful and get excited about starting your day every morning? Have you noticed that many of us are going thru similar challenges or "upgrades" lately and maybe the fact that the new year is right around the corner has caused us to reflect on where we have been and question our lives and how satisfied we are. It seems we are in a  major growth spurt right now that for some of us feels chaotic at times. Have you noticed there is some major shedding going on? Do you feel more emotional at times, and then feel a surge of energy? The old is making way for the new (some of us are experiencing this with a lot of resistance) and we are realizing that some things we have been doing or...

Have you made enough time in your life to ask yourself, "what is my dream life?" Then taken the time to listen for the answers and visualized that dream life? Other helpful questions: What does my ultimate dream life feel like? Who are the people in my dream life? What am I doing in my dream life? Dare to ask and you will definitely manifest some answers, maybe a little quicker than you may expect! A few months back I had the honor of teaching yoga and belly dance to a group of amazing women at The Women's Rejuvenation Retreat in Costa Rica led by Jennifer Grace,  Hay House author of "Directing Your Destiny." One of my dreams is to offer life enhancing and empowering retreats all around the world! I had envisioned that goal just a few weeks before Jennifer Grace had asked me to be a...

  Are you "present" and aware of yourself throughout the day, or do you numb out your feelings and emotions? Some of us have had past hurts and traumas which make it painful and scary to be fully engaged in the moment. For when we show up completely whole and present in the moment, it actually stimulates our healing response and causes us to bring to the surface and release our past hurts and traumas, if we have any.¬† That is why for some of us, we can't be "relaxed" and simply enjoy being present in the moment. For some of us, simply "being" ourselves makes us feel antsy and unsettled. These are the folks that need to reach for that cigarette, for that extra drink, or those who shake their leg when they are sitting still for too long. The ones that seem restless and uneasy and...

                              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. All we have to do is BE in a state of unconditional love and acceptance of who we are, of everything that IS (as much as possible throughout the day).                         When we are fully engaged in the present moment, we heal and we BECOME peace, connection, love, and feel the powerful force of creation- the pulse of the universe, God, Source, whatever name you like to describe this timeless and boundless force, that is our nature. HOW TO FEEL THE EXPANSIVE AND BOUNDLESS FORCE OF CREATION THAT FLOWS THROUGH YOU IN EVERY MOMENT: Breathe deeply and notice how you feel as you expand and receive the breath of life through your...

Did you know you are a powerful being able to manifest and create a life that you truly desire? Did you know that your thoughts and actions in every moment greatly influence your existing reality? When you are focused and completely engaged in the moment you get to experience the power of BEING PRESENT. Eckhart Tolle wrote about it in his best selling book, The Power Of Now. This is the state of being where you get to experience your true nature and innate power. If most of our day is spent with our mind somewhere else such as with chronic worry about the future or resentment about the past, then we are not fully engaged in the present moment. This leaves us with the feeling of being scattered, drained, weak and tired. Today you see people walking around and driving while texting or talking on...
