Spirituality For Real Life (R). 
Transformational Tips at the "Top of the Day." Bringing Deeper Clairity to Each Moment and Inviting You to Live Magnificently!

Monday, November 18, 2013:  The trees are once again revealing their true shape.  Let us follow their example by "digging deep" this Thanksgiving Season.  Be the best you; show your true self through integrity, generosity, and above all else....Love. 
Wednesday, October 16, 2013:  Time dosen't like to be held too tightly.  It ventures forward without our permission or blessing.  Time is a great teacher, unyielding in its lesson plan.  So, for today.....Instead of focusing on a steady list of things you must do...Do those things fully aware of and in celebration of The Present Moment, its here only now. 
Monday, September 13, 2013:  Only calm can restore your inner Peace.  If you have lost your way and feel an infusion of fear and agitation building within; you must take the necessary time to restore Calm.  In the absence of this restorative energy - we suffer.  Take the time today to read, walk, breathe, and meditate....Surrender to the energy of Peace and take good care of your Soul today. 
 Friday, May 24, 2013:  The elements of design are quite the same as the guideposts for a spiritually balanced life: Surround yourself with what you love; Create balance; Remove clutter; and Seek harmony.  Take care in maintaining your objective each day in an effort to sustain happiness.  Your outer Home and your inner Home are connected. 
 Tuesday, May 8, 2013:  To be free is the birthright of every man, woman, and child.  Freedom is God Given.  Unfortunately, man can often get in the way of this by imposing "well meaning" intervention for our "own good."  Free yourself from bondage today.  You can forge your way, regardless of what others may say.  Identify, isolate, and resolve to let go of that which keeps you bound to ideas, actions, and emotions which lead to your imprisonment.  We were made to be free.  We were created to make our own choices about love, prosperity, and personal excellence.  Every person who chooses this path, has the power to lift up those who do not remember that they were born with free will.  Embrace your Free Spirit today and connect to the God Essence within.  Have a beautiful day!
Tuesday, April 30, 2013:  Prayer heals, restores, and fortifies our resolve.  The collective energy of prayer is a powerful force for good.  Allow the energy of prayer to fill you with peace.  Give the gift of prayer with each step you take today in mindfulness and with sincere dedication to all those who are suffering and frightened.  We are resilient beings, we will continue, it is the best way to honor each other and the sacred essence of life.  Continue, live, love.....appreciate. 
Thursday, April 11, 2013:  If you believe that every living thing is connected....Then you must understand that you contain all elements of possibility within you.  You have all the goodness, intellect, and ability to manifest within you.  Harvest your God given abilities today.  Don't dwell on your supposed shortcomings, but rather on your miraculous capacity to create, renew, and rejuvenate.  You are Love and You are Loved. 
Tuesday, April 2, 2013:  Our minds continually create for us, this is the nature and purpose of The Mind.  We must create a balance between intellect and Spirit in order for our minds to stay focused on the positive rather than the negative.  Exercise your Spiritual muscles each day through the devoted practice of prayer, meditation, and visualization.  Keep your Spirit healthy and your mind and body will follow suit.  Have a beautiful day! 
Thursday, March 21, 2013:  Today is an excellent day to Trust.  Trust that you know the best path for you.  Trust that you are strong enough to make the kind of choices you will be proud of at the end of the day.  Trust that you are perfect in God's eyes and capable of great things. 
Thursday, March 7, 2013:  We are reflections of the great I Am.  We have the potential to live as Jesus did; Jesus......"listened."  Make a commitment this day and carve out time to listen.  It is in moments of quiet contemplation that we find our true selves, rest in the arms of holiness, and find answers to the riddles we wrestle with day in and out.  Quiet yourself today and find God within. 
Tuesday, February 12, 2013:  Your time on earth is finite, this is a fact.  Practice living each day to the fullest.  Create your Heaven here on earth.  You have the power to manifest your dreams and wishes in the here and now, through your practical application of principles such as unconditional love, forgiveness, and compassion.  Show your devotion to God by remembering who you truly are.  Sing your authentic song today, show the world your true colors.  Demonstrate a flavor and an authenticity in all you do.......only you can "bring" this.  You were created for greatness.  Honor those you love here, and on the other side, by living your life in harmony and in awareness of your blessings.  All shall be well.
Thursday, January 17, 2013:  Like a painting....our lives are filled with brush-strokes.  Sometimes we choose to paint over areas we feel dissatisfied with, and at other times, we add new elements.  Never be afraid to add more color to your life; allow those you love to add more color to their lives also.  Stagnation and mediocrity create nothing but the same.  If you love someone, but do not understand their "colors"....try to expand your awareness to include their individuality.  Lift new colors onto your palette today and celebrate your masterpiece! 
Wednesday, January 9, 2013:  Be Still And Know That I Am God.  Psalm 46:10 
Be still and drink in this moment.  Be still and know you are alive.  Be still and give thanks for your blessings.  Being "still" does not necessarily mean the absence of movement.  You can benefit from the energy of "stillness" regardless of where you are or what you are doing.  Stillness is an energy that brings clarity and peace into our daily lives like nothing else.  Be Still. 
Tuesday, December 17, 2012:  Miracles may not always come as you expect or pray them to; but they come every day nevertheless.  Be awake today to celebrate the miracles, the mystery, and the healing that awaits you. 
Thursday, November 15, 2012:  Assure yourself today that regardless of the many possibilities that lay ahead.....All shall be well with your Soul.  You are an eternal being, your life and times are limitless.  Your job today is to embrace each moment as if it were your last; while balancing the wisdom that what you do today, will effect your eternal tomorrow's.  Live well friends. 
Tuesday, November 13, 2012:  If you were a tree, what kind would you be?  Would you be the kind of tree that stands strong and solid in the eye of a hurricane?  Or, the kind that bends, snaps, and buckles with every gust of wind?  Will you line a path that is easy....Or will you grace a hillside that may leave you more vulnerable - but will undoutably inspire all who pass by.  If you were a tree, what kind would you be - today. 
Wednesday, October 24, 2012:  Stand up for what you believe in today; do this peacefully and with sound intention.  Be that unexpected brilliant flash of color!  Inspire, invigorate, initiate....Give of yourself with compassion, love, and consistency.  You are someone's hope for a brighter day.
Friday, May 11, 2012:  Your choices reflect your reality.  Choose each element in your life with care.  Hold each new decision up to the light and examine it thoroughly for it's purity of content.  In this way, you will fill your life with people of high character, places of beauty and grace, and situations that will further your developemnt and bring you joy.   
Thursday, May 10, 2012:  It is the sustained and consistent energy of forgiveness that allows us to experience peace and joy within.  In the absence of forgiveness, there can be no peace.  Immerse yourself in this profound energy today.  Expand, release, atone and.....Breathe. 
Friday, April 6, 2012:  It is only your thoughts that can cause you pain and the continuation of fear.  Embrace eternity today.  Hold within your heart and mind the essential and abiding truth that you are safe and loved.  You are held in the arms of God.  Remember this...and release your discomfort.   
Thursday, April 5, 2012:  Chaotic thoughts create disharmony.  Let us work together today to elevate our consciousness.  Thoughts of peace, prosperity, and happiness attract the likeness of these Noble Energies.  Let go of erratic thoughts today and embrace positive possibilities. 
Tuesday, April 3, 2012:  Find your innocence today.  Reconnect with that Sacred Place inside you that wonders, explores, and views the world with joyful eyes.  This energy will take you "Home" to the place your Soul remembers as being true and constant.  Have a beautiful day. 
Thursday, March 29, 2012:  Care for your mind today, be aware of the thoughts you create.  Your thoughts may not be reflections of truth, they may instead be filled with misperception and fear.  Take time today to quiet your mind.  Breathe deeply, surround yourself with loving kindness, you are a Child of God.....You Are Love. 
Wednesday, March 28, 2012:  Breathing deeply, I am reminded of the miracle of life.  I am also reminded that life does not end when I cease breathing.  Life is eternal.  The present moment is where I am now.  We must not focus too much on what might happen, but instead on what is happening.  Gift yourself with a beautiful day.....It all begins with your concious awareness. 
Tuesday, March 27, 2012: Let go of pain and suffering today.  find joy in this moment.  Connect with the essential truth that you are not "in the past"......you are here....."in the present."  You will find great release in letting go.  Peace and joy are here now waiting for you.  Welcome Home. 
Monday, March 26, 2012:  Everything is Energy - Your thoughts, words, and deeds.....even your money.  The energy we emit through all these modalities returns to us.  Be mindful today.  Remember what you want in your life and vow to BE those things for the benefit of others; it all returns to you. 
Friday, March 16, 2012:  It is Spring now.  Let's clear the cobwebs!  Can you commit to changing one negative behavior in this fresh season of growth?  Choose something you would like to eliminate and then set up a support system, so that you can be successful.  Tune in to the positive energy of renewal and allow it to rejuvenate your Spirit. 
Thursday, March 15, 2012:  Atone with yourself today.  Be at peace with your past and forgive those times when you have not reflected who you truly are.  Forgiveness sets us free.  Forgive yourself and begin this day with a clean slate.  Deep breath.....You are strong enough to do this! 
Wednesday, March 14, 2012:  Put the past to rest today.  Understand that your continued engagement in "what was" disturbs your ability to be here now and enjoy many blessings, much happiness, and true love.  The present moment is where your life is happening....not the past.  Let go.  Be here.  Be peace. 
Tuesday, March 13, 2012:  Keep your eyes fixed on the Light today.  Walk with the Light.  Speak from the Light.  Share in the Light.  Consider no other option today; it is after all a new day!
Friday, March 9, 2012:  Surrender to the energy of Faith today.  Trust.....No matter what your circumstances are....you will prevail.  The extent to which you remain connected to positive energies is the extent to which you will succeed.  Take a deep breath and put your faith in God today; all shall be well. 
Thursday, March 8, 2012:  Do not worry about the future today.  Stay here....live in the present moment and connect deeply with your Blessings.  The future has a way of taking care of itself.  Be here now.  Celebrate this moment. 
Wednesday, March 7, 2012:  Support yourself and everyone around you today in resonating with their True Self.  Be faithful to your word, honor your need for inner peace, strive to express joy, forgiveness, and grace.  At the core of who you are is Love. 
Tuesday, February 21, 2012:  In Forgiveness you are able to see who you truly are.  Do not separate from your True Self today; stay with the energy of forgiveness and allow it to guide you to a deeper understanding of yourself and others.  We are not separate from each other, there is no division between you, me, and God - We Are One.  Let go of illusion and surrender to Divine Truth.   
Monday, February 20, 2012:  Anticipate good things today!  Draw the energy of goodness to you.  Breathe in the positive outcomes, possibilities, and opportunities you desire.  You have the power to create a day filled with bountiful blessings.  You are an artist.....Paint your picture well. 
Thursday, February 16, 2012:  Choose Heaven today.  Choose happiness, peace, and grace.  Surrender to positive energies and allow the others to fall away.  Make a commitment to yourself to maintain the awareness of your choice.  Negative thoughts bear no fruit, they have no value.  Immerse yourself in a positive reality.
Tuesday, February 14, 2012:  Love is the quintessential energy that inspires, adores, forgives, and persists.  Celebrate love fully today in your thoughts, speech, and actions.  "Be" the LOVE you wish to see in the world....It's in you. 
Monday, February 13, 2012:  Embrace the energy of Forgiveness fully today.  In the absence of Forgiveness, you risk losing what you cherish the most.  You are capable of forgiving yourself.  You are capable of forgiving others.  Breathe in deeply the energy of forgiveness and allow it to heal you.  You are strong enough to do this. 
Thursday, February, 8, 2012:  Remember God today - whatever you perceive Him to be.  Keep Him at the forefront of your mind while you go about the busy-ness of your day.  Continally re-member, join again, and again, and again with His Grace in all you do.  This is the practice of mindful awareness and gratitude.

Friday, February 3, 2012:  How far are you willing to stretch yourself?  Are you living in authentic awareness of who you truly are?  Connect with your Higher Self today; attune with that part of you that learns from the past, dwells in the present, and actively creates a future energetically connected to Joy. 
Tuesday, January 31, 2012:  Because you create your reality....you can choose to resist, accept, or transform the way you experience your life.  What is it you really want today?  Focus your attention on what you desire, state what you wish very clearly, apply intention, and offer it up.  A "recipe" for miraculous happenings! 
Monday, January 30, 2012:  To love deeply is your essential nature, anything other than that is the product of fear.  When you live your life "in love," this is the energy that surrounds you.  Look at your world (all the people, places, and things.....animal, vegetable, and mineral) with loving eyes today and watch your reality shift. 
Thursday, January 26, 2012:  Leave your pain behind and enter into the world of truth, peace, and spiritual impression.  Spend some time today quietly contemplating what is real and meaningful in your life.  Step by step you are invited to embrace who you truly are. 
Wednesday, January 25, 2012:  Your success depends upon two things today; your tenacity and your ability to return to a peaceful disposition.  Breathing deeply will assist you in both maintaining your energy and your peacefulness.  Have a beautiful day! 
Tuesday, January 24, 2012:  There is always another way to look at what is troubling you.  Advance your thoughts.  Embrace a new outlook on something you feel "stuck" with.  Free yourself from the constraints of an energy habit that no longer serves you.
Thursday, January 19, 2012:  Forgiveness is Peace; these two energies are interdependent.  Without one....the other cannot exist.  Consider your current level of inner peace today - then consider Forgiveness. 
Wednesday, January 18, 2012:  Release your fear.  Embrace the possibilities.  Would you invite someone who would harm you into your home?  I think not!  Fear......is that entity.  Let go of your fear today and come "home" to Love.  Smile, it is a new day! 
Tuesday, January 17, 2012:  Replace thoughts of anger, sadness, and frustration today with Peace.  Allow peace to be your "go to" energy rather than negativity.  You are strong enough to transform distressful negative emotions into positive peace affirming thoughts.  See Peace.  Be Peace. 
Tuesday, January 10, 2012:  Enjoy the journey today.  Don't rush forward and rob yourself of this very precious present moment.  Life is happening right now.  Breathe deeply and be here.
Friday, December 23, 2011:  It is a new day.  All doors that close and every chapter that ends does so for our long-term benefit and awareness.  Every "ending" heralds a beginning; Jesus showed us this through his birth and crucifixion.  We must remember that it is all Birth!  It is all Hosannah.  Celebrate the "birth" in your life this Christmas.  You are on the edge of miraculous happenings - Stay Awake!  Merry Christmas.
Thursday, December 22, 2011:  We are connected.  Every living thing resides within you.  There is nothing in this world that you are not somehow a part of.  All joy, suffering, abundance, and lack are part of our creation.  Resolve today to view the world with fresh "Christ-Like" eyes; do as He would have done.  Honor His life today by demonstrating unconditional love toward all inhabitants of this weary and beautiful world.   
Wednesday, December 21, 2011:  Release your fear.  You are here now in the present moment.....You are safe.  Have faith that you are where you need to be and so are those you love.  All shall be well.  We may not always understand or even remember - but life is eternal and you are dearly loved.   
Tuesday, December 20, 2011:  Give the gift of Forgiveness this Christmas.  Allow the energy of forgiveness to penetrate  Light.  F
 the "big ticket items" along with the smaller ones.  If now now.....When? 
Friday, December 16, 2011:  Take a deep breath.  As a matter of fact....take three!  Begin your day again, take the positive with you and leave behind any stress and negativity.  Don't allow anything but positive energy to follow you from this moment forward.  You have the power to transform this moment.
Wednesday, December 14, 2011:  Are you the pupil or the teacher?  I say to you - that you are both.  Look for Sacred moments today.  Allow others to teach you, and when possible dig deep into your well of wisdom and teach what you "know" in the unique way that only you can. 
Monday, December 12, 2011:  Slow it down today and offer up heartfelt gratitude for your Blessings.  Let go of the truly small and insignificant annoyances you make way too big.  "Let it go" is today's message.  Hold your loved ones nearer than you usually do.  Marvel at the sunset longer than you ever have.  Rejoice in the rhythm of your in and out breath.  Celebrate Life. 
Thursday, December 8, 2011:  Let only thoughts of abundance enter your mind.  It cannot be stressed enough - we create that which we ruminate upon.  Whether it be love, happiness, or prosperity; focus on the positive and diligently release the negative.   
Wednesday, December 7, 2011:  Open your mind to the vast expanse, of what each day could be like, bathed in Faith.  Consider the possibility that no matter what the obstacle you face is....All Shall Be Well.  You are a child of God.  You are beloved.  You will not be abandoned, even in what you perceive as your darkest hour; you are not alone.
Tuesday, December 6, 2011:  Forgive yourself.  You are human.  You may lose your temper, become fatigued, and feel hopeless at times; these emotions are natural.  It's how we recover from such lapses and transform our emotions......that make us "super-natural."  Peace to you this day.   
Friday, December 2, 2011:  In the absence of Forgiveness.....there is no future.  The noble path of Forgiveness is not an easy one, it is however imperitive to our happiness and in fact to our survival.  Stretch your forgiveness muscles today, push yourself farther; we are strong enough to do this. 
Wednesday, November 30, 2011:  Be gentle with yourself today.  Do what you need to do and allow the day to unfold as it will.  Too much preoccupation on what you "must" get done takes the pleasure out of the present moment. 
Monday, November 28, 2011:  Today is the day you've been waiting for!  You are alive here....now....in this moment.  Don't wait any longer to celebrate your Blessings.  Don't wait for bigger, better, and more Blessings.  Celebrate what you have, with those you love.  "Today" has arrived. 
Wednesday, November 23, 2011:  I am thankful for you.  Every smile and kind gesture leads us to a more peaceful and loving existence.  Hold one another close and celebrate the energy of gratitude.  Give thanks for what is "real" in your life; love, nourishment, laughter, fresh air, and the beauty found in the natural world.  Enjoy.  Happy Thanksgiving! 
Friday, November 18, 2011:  Have Faith Today.  Have faith in yourself, in your loved ones, and in the world.  Maintain a positive energy and stay faith-full regardless of what others may say or do.  You are strong enough to maintain faith and present it to the world as the gift it is. 
Thursday, November 17, 2011:  Embrace the energy of forgiveness today.  You may not forget....But you are very capable of forgiving.  Take a quiet moment and breathe in the light of truth.  Stay with "that truth" all through the day.  You have no control over others - You have complete control over yourself. 
Wednesday, November 16, 2011:  Attacking another will not save you.  We are one....so closely linked to our fellow human beings that when one is harmed, all are harmed.  Choose loving speech today.  Work toward resolution and not separation. 
Tuesday, November 15, 2011:  Keep your thoughts elevated today.  When negativity sneaks in.....take a cleansing breath and return to a thought which carries a higher vibrational frequency.  You are strong enough to stay positively in the present moment. 
Monday, November 14, 2011:  Rejoice in this day!  You have everything you need to make it a good day.  All of the conditions are within you to be happy - you have your smile and your breath.  Use the tools at your constant disposal and have a wonderful day!   
Friday, November 10, 2011:  Humans have been looking for "signs" since the beginning of time.  First we looked for signs hidden in constellations and eclipses, then we tried to find meaning in weather patterns, and how we look to actual man-made calendar dates to try and sort out the meaning of existence.  Today, I suggest to you that rather than ponder the "meaning" of life.....Why not really LIVE!  Forgive, love, develop a skill, embrace humanity, and love the planet in some small way.  You exist.  Live Your Life.     
Thursday, November 9, 2011:  As you move from rest to activity, focus your attention on spending the day connected to the energy of forgiveness and loving kindness.  When we pair these two energies, only goodness circulates in and around us.  Be the answer today.  You are strong enough to rise above lower thought forms and soar into freedom. 
Wednesday, November 8, 2011:  Take the opportunity to saturate yourself in peace.  Sit quietly, empty your mind, breathe deeply, and allow the energy of Peace to take over all of the internal running, craving, chasing, and dis-ease.  Be Peace Today.  You are loved! 
Tuesday, November 7, 2011:  Leave your pain behind today and embrace this moment.  The truth dwells in the present; a hot cup of tea, sunlight streaming through the window panes, the inhale and exhale of the Present Moment.  All of these things bring the energy of sincerity directly to you.  You are alive. 
Monday, November 6, 2011:  Calm your thoughts today.  Empty the vessel that holds your worries, goals, fear, and excitement.  Allow your mind some time to rest today.  When you give yourself this precious time; you create space for wonderful moments in the present.
Monday, November 1, 2011:  Give thanks today to your ancestors; those living and in Spirit.  Connect with those in the flesh and the ones you know only through faded photographs.  If it were not for their victories, resilience, suffering, and joy.....you would not exist.  Give thanks today for those who trod the way before you and brought your name forth. 
Friday, October 28, 2011:  Let your actions and your thoughts do the "talking" today.  If....and when you choose to use words, be mindful.  Select words that reflect your deep affinity for truth, sincerity, and grace.  Enjoy this day - It was made for you. 
Wednesday, October 26, 2011: Allow only positive thoughts to flourish in your mind today.  Release negative thoughts without reservation....Let them go.  Your stability depends upon how well you cultivate this practice.  Release for peace. 
Tuesday, October 25, 2011:  Enlightenment, transformation of negative thought forms, and peace.....these are the choices I make for myself this day.  Immerse yourself in the practice of attuning to Noble Energies.  Surrender to the present moment. 
Monday, October 24, 2011:  Open yourself up to all the vast and radiant possibilities today.  Breathe in the love, success, and wellness the Universe is sending.  You are the Author of your life story - Make it a Best Seller! 
Friday, October 21, 2011:  If you are bothered by the behavior of another, make it your practice to offer them peace.  By offering the subject of your frustration Peace.....You in turn receive this energy also.  This is the true application of cultivating "Peace on Earth."  Have a peaceful day and weekend.
Thursday, October 20, 2011:  Let your defenses fall away today.  Why must you continue to defend yourself so fiercely?  Your safety, your worth, and your contributions are seen and held in the eyes of God.  Surrender today to the greatest love there is.  Allow the Pure Spirit of True Love to heal you.  Close your eyes, breathe deeply, connect with this moment.....You are cherished. 
Wednesday, October 19, 2011:  The past is gone; though it may linger in your memory....it can no longer harm you.  Embrace the present moment all day long.  You are here now.  You are alive - Live! 
Tuesday, October 18, 2011:  The way to peace, true love, and grace is through forgiveness.  Forgive yourself.  Forgive others.  You may not forget......but you can forgive.  You are strong enough to forgive and find lasting peace.  Let go.  Let go.  Let IT go. 
Monday, October 17, 2011:  Commit to setting yourself up in your daily life so that you are continually reminded of your Spiritual Practice.  We live in a distracting world.  It is easy to forget our intention to speak kindly, breathe deeply, and live mindfully.  Right now....Choose three ways to support your practice.  An alarm on your phone?  Prayer Beads in your pocket?  A post-it on your mirror?  Love yourself.  Deepen your practice.
Friday, October 14, 2011:  If you feel weary.....Commit to connecting with all the goodness awaiting your conscious arrival.  Stay present and aware of goodness, grace, and peace today.  Your happiness is dependent upon your stability.  You are love.  You are loved. 
Thursday, October 13, 2011: Breathe deeply now.  Whatever you are doing, you can stop for a moment and rest.  Take the essence of that peaceful energy deep into your Soul.  Let it guide you through the active moments in your day.  
Wednesday, October 12, 2011:  What purpose will you serve today?  Aside from your family's needs, preparing meals.....etc.  What "purpose" will you serve?  While you are doing all the things you must do - connect more deeply with "how" you do them.  What energy will you magnify?  Will it be peace, generosity, grace, forgiveness?  Serve a valiant purpose today.  Be the answer. 
Thursday, October 6, 2011:  Your thoughts are either manifestations of fear or love.  Breathe deeply today and pursue thoughts of love, generosity, and well-being.  You are what you ruminate upon. 
Wednesday, October 5, 2011:  Are you ready to give up on something or someone?  Have the tenacity to find a way to transform the situation.  Take a deep breath and reflect upon why it is important not to give up.  No one ever said it would be easy!  The rewards will outweigh the challenges.  Your inner strength will carry you. 
Tuesday, October 4, 2011:  Forgive not only others, but yourself also.  We continually misunderstand the motives, pain, and suffering of others.  The attack you feel is the pain someone else does not know what to do with.  Understand your Brother and you will understand yourself. 
Monday, October 3, 2011:  Listen.....Connect deeply today with the sounds around you.  Connect with your heartbeat, the bird song, and the voices of those you love.  Resonate with the sounds that bring you joy; and don't focus on the ones which do not.  The more present you are for wonderful occurences - the more readily you draw them to you. 
Thursday, September 29, 2011:  Focus on all the things that are going well today.  Open your eyes, look deeply into the heart of your life.  You are blessed in many ways.  You Are Alive! 
Wednesday, September 28, 2011:  Forgiveness is the ultimate expression of wisdom.  You cannot expect to forgive someone only once.  Forgiveness is a lifestyle.  Each time you feel anger and resentment bubble-up, you must forgive again.  Let go.  Breathe.  Forgive. 
Tuesday, September 27, 2011:  Seek gentleness today in yourself and others.  Connect with the energy of gentleness by taking in the natural world around you.  Present this "spirit" to all you encounter.  Celebrate it within yourself.  No harm will ever come from cultivating a Gentle Spirit. 
Monday, September 26, 2011:  Allow the past to be over, quiet your mind.  This is a new day and you must commit to greet it with fresh eyes.  If you do not do this, you know very well the outcome.  If you choose this....The sky has no limit! 
Friday, September 16, 2011:  The purpose of life is not necessarily to get all your work done - rather to enjoy life while doing your work.  Enjoy the day! 
Thursday, September 15, 2011:  Can you see the humor in your daily life?  Look for it more than ever today.  Allow your life to give you a good chuckle.  The work, the juggling, the monotony......the insanity!  Laugh!  It's good for you! 
Wednesday, September 14, 2011:  It's a new day!  Smile.  If you are feeling positive.....Carry On.  If your day started off wobbly - Begin Again.  Take a deep breath and start the day again.  You control this, you can do this; have a great day!

Wednesday, August 17, 2011:  Don't waste time trying to change the "un-changeable."  Accept what is and aspire to positively impact what can be adjusted, shifted, or re-created.  There are some mountains you can move, and there are some you can not; find the moveable mountains and roll up your sleeves!  Enjoy today - You are alive!

Monday, April 18, 2011:  We have difficulty maintaining a peaceful energy for very long....this is true for most people.  The key to success in remaining calm and more relaxed
throughout the day is within your practice.  You must practice throughout the day without fail; scheduling this at the top of the hour works nicely.  This takes only a moment - breathe deeply, calm yourself body and soul, and affirm your intention.  Your ability to manifest all that you desire will magnify as your practice flourishes. 
Friday, April 15, 2011:  Take refuge in your Faith today.  When things seem dark and if you are overwhelmed by your circumstances - remember to cloak yourself in the unconditional love God offers.  There is a hand extended toward you; take it, hold it, and walk with it.  Breathe deeply and cling to your Faith, it will sustain you....it was designed to do this. 
Thursday, April 14, 2011:  Today is "the day" to be awake and aware of those you hold dear.  If you knew precisely how many days you had left on earth to celebrate life with those you love...would it change you?  Breathe deeply and hold your loved ones close today; count every sigh, every heartbeat, and every smile.  You are alive - together - in the same moment.  Cherish.

Monday, April 11, 2011:  Abundant life awaits you in this moment.  Enjoy today and don't waste any time with yesterday's regrets or the antipation of tomorrow, and what it could hold.  Your life is happening now.  Drink each moment "in" and give thanks.  You Are Alive! 
Friday, April 8, 2011:  Finding peace and being silent are very important components in realizing our true potential.  The only way to truly find ourselves is by becoming part of the spiritual silence from whence we came.  When we are silent, we can begin to remember.  We can start to recollect where we came from, and why we signed up to be here in the first place.  (an excerpt from "The Caterpillar's Flight) 
Thursday, April 7, 2011:  Release the past and allow it to take it's proper position within the framework of your totality.  The events in our lives help to shape us.....they do not "define" us.  Rise up today and move beyond anything you perceive as limiting.  Your potential is limitless.

Thursday, March 24, 2011:  We all perceive life differently and through the lens offered to us in childhood.  Learn to identify negative emotions.  They are part of energy patterns you must release from the past.  Create a grid around you connecting positive energy, eternal truth, and unconditional love - allow this "grid" to nourish you all day long. 
Wednesday, March 23, 2011:  Abundance is your birthright.  The more you have...The more you can share.  We are spiritual beings and yet we live in a material world.  Embrace prosperity conciousness today - not just for yourself, but for all humankind.  You can help the impoverished by seeing who they truly are.....Reflect broad possibilities today for all you meet. 
Tuesday, March 22, 2011:  Give Thanks.  You are alive!  Give Thanks.  You are breathing in and out.  Give Thanks.  You have many blessings in your life - count them aloud all day long.  Give Thanks.  This practice will revolutionize the way you view your life, and consequently what you attract unto you.  Give Thanks. 
Monday, March 21, 2011:  Happy Spring!  Today is the first day of the season of birth and renewal.  Embrace the freshness these days ahead will bring.  Allow the energy of Spring to awaken you.  Release the blocks you may have held this winter.  Emotions such as fear and resentment have no place here in the present moment. 
Thursday, March 17, 2011:  You cannot do everything, but you can do "something."  How can you change the world today?  What cause stirs a longing in your Soul?  Imagine a world where we all have something that we hold dearly and we devotedly attend to it each day.....something bigger than our own well-being...something more than what goes on within our own 4-walls.  Think about it, you are amazing, and you are here for a reason.  Make today the day you commit to bringing awareness to something that you consider unacceptable. 
Wednesday, March 16, 2011:  Find peace today.  With all that is happening in the world and in our own lives, it is more important than ever to embrace the energy of peace.  Meditate upon peace, talk about peace, share peace, give peace....Be Peace.  You are the answer, God's peace enfolds you - show it to someone today. 
Tuesday, March 15, 2011:  Throughout the course of our busy lives, we often forget those magical words...."Ask and ye shall receive."  You are surrounded by a chorus of Angels just waiting for you to "ask."  Pray upon what you wish to receive today, offer your prayers up in sacred stillness, and then let them go.  You have been heard. 
Monday, March 14, 2011:  Don't give in to fear today.  Be confident in this....fear has an opposite and it is LOVE.  Dwell in the energy of love and let it carry you to high ground.  Stay on course and choose love not fear.  If you feel yourself falling into fear, take a deep breath and correct your direction - let Love be your compass. 
Friday, March 11, 2011:  Each moment on this Earth is a precious gift.  Be attentive toward your beloveds today, appreciate that you are together right now.  Dedicate your appreciation to all those who lost their lives to the catastrophic earthquake in Japan.  Each moment is a gift.  God Bless You. 
Thursday, March 10, 2011:  Impermanence is THE constant reality.  Nothing lasts forever - no emotion, no thought, no material manifestation, no physical body....nothing.  Nothing that is except for your Eternal Life.  This is the great dichotomy!  Dwell on that which is positive today.  Be present in this moment, it is a gift, and you are alive. 
Tuesday, March 8, 2011:  Open your heart today.  Give audience to the Divine Energy that is with you at all times.  If there are moments in your life when you feel as though you are alone, please remember...it is you who casts aside Spirit.  It only feels at times as though God has left - He never has - and He never will.  You Are Loved. 
Monday, March 7, 2011:  Do not yield to negativity today.  Use your words as a force field to protect you from lower vibrations.  Words create energy.  Instead of saying, "This day is not going well."  Try saying, "This day is steadily improving."  Befriend your thoughts and words, let them create positive energy for you.  Direct your words; they are a useful tool in the process of Divine Manifestation. 
Friday, March 4, 2011:  Listen today - learn to discern between the "voice within" that fears, and the voice within that is in fact Divine.  Train yourself to differentiate between the voices you hear in your head.  Attune to the highest vibrational frequency you are capable of.  Pretend your mind is a radio....and set the dial to "God's Voice."  Enjoy The Day. 
Wednesday, March 2, 2011:  Your beliefs direct and guide the course of your life.  As you choose your thoughts today, make a conscious decision to align them with your true heart's desire.  Cancel negative ponderances and replace them with pure intention; for only goodness will come to you when you remain steadfastly in the light. 
Tuesday, March 1, 2011:  True peace is something that exists independent of all material and wordly circumstances.  When we find "true peace" and are able to access this restorative energy, our lives are permanently altered.  Choosing peace over chaos is an art, it is a spiritual practice which yields abundant blessings.  Begin now - breathe deeply, allow a smile to shape your lips.....choose peace within and watch as everything you touch opens and is refreshed. 
Monday, February 28, 2011:  Whatever it is....Let it go.  There is simply no benefit to hanging on to it any longer.  Search your heart, you know what you need to release.  You can spend a lifetime letting go of "it," or you can do it right now, and be done with it.  Choose wisely today.  Make a choice that will make a profound difference for the rest of your life. 
Tuesday, February 15, 2011:  Only cultivated Spiritual understanding will bring you lasting peace.  Offer your worry and fear up to The One who bears witness to all your suffering and strife.  Yes...Exert your free will and put into place the pieces of your life puzzle, as you so choose.  But remember as you journey, it is Divine Will in the end which holds "The Final Answer."  Understand that your relationship to God affords you ultimate and lasting peace. 
Monday, February 14, 2011:  Celebrate the energy of unconditional love today.  Feel the pulsating presence of Love's Offerings.  Mother Earth is one big Valentine; with her birdsong, sunrise, flowing rivers, and sunset.  You are surrounded by Love.  You are Loved.  You are Love.  Happy Valentine's Day! 
Friday, February 11, 2011:  Forgiveness Friday is here again!  Think about how your unforgiving thoughts affect you emotionally; they cause you to feel tired, sad, and without hope.  Did you know that these very thoughts also effect your body?  Negative, resentful, unforgiving thoughts cause disharmony in every aspect of your being....Body, Mind, and Spirit.  Forgive.  Forgive.  Forgive.
Thursday, February 10, 2011:  Stay in communication today with Spirit.  Don't be so busy, going - going - gone.....that you do not celebrate, recognize, and give thanks for the blessings around you.  Allow the hand of God to touch you today.  Let the Great Creator soothe, care, and console you.  You Are Loved. 
Monday, February 7, 2011:  Allow the footprints of the past to fade now.  Learn from where you have been, but do not let your memories cause you fear or pain anymore.  Let go.  Let go.  Let go.  You are here now....not "there."  This moment is filled with infinite possibilities.  Only you can stop the positive flow of energy coming toward you.  Enjoy this day!
Friday, February 4, 2011:  Forgiveness Friday is here once again!  Be gentle with yourself this weekend.  Don't drive yourself crazy with unrealistic expectations.  Walk gently upon the earth, breathe deeply the fresh air, appreciate a good meal, a tender hug; and your God given ability to connect with peace.  Forgive yourself, you are Part Human/Part Divine. 
Thursday, February 3, 2011:  Savor this day.  Focus not on what is seen, but rather what is unseen.  There is a positive "jet stream" of energy that circulates around you - resonate with that and see what happens.  We attract what we focus upon.

Wednesday, January 26, 2011:  Don't worry about having a "problem free" life.  Challenges are here to stay.  The important thing is how we respond to them, and whether or not we allow them to overshadow all that is working so well in our lives.

Thursday, December 16, 2010:  You were created for purposes of Divine expression.  Participate in activities that support you in growing closer to your authentic self.  This "self" is in it's genuine position of grace and authenticity while fully awake.  Be mindful of your actions, speech and thoughts today...bring the fragments of your life together into a cohesive whole. 
Wednesday, December 15, 2010:  Although you may be quite busy today with work, family, and holiday preparations; it is imperative to take a few "stolen" moments to care for your self.  Many people rely on your stability.  Honor them...by honoring yourself.   
Tuesday, December 14, 2010:  Don't live on the periphery of your life.  Immerse yourself in rich meaning, deep connections, and the awareness of the miracle of life itself.  Living on the surface will yield a superfical life and leave you always grasping for more.  Live not on the sidelines, but in center field, with arms raised - singing, "Hallelujah, I am alive!"  Embrace the day.
Monday, December 13, 2010:  Be still...Right now.  As you read this message, breathe deeply and allow yourself a few minutes of sacred connection with The Source.  It is Monday, and you have an opportunity to start the week with calm authority.  Now read this message again - And have a great day! 
Thursday, December 9, 2010:  Give unconditionally today.  Place no conditions on what you give.  Give to Give.  Let the act of "giving" be the point and purpose of this exercise.  We often give with a hidden agenda...hoping that the result of giving will be receiving.  Use pure intent today - when you lay down tonight, you will fee like you did God's work all day.  Let the White Light pour in now! 
Wednesday, December 8, 2010:  Do not fear today.  Each time fear surfaces, take a deep breath and know that you are not walking alone.  The challenges you face are designed to draw you closer to God.  Your fear will try to inhibit you....Defy it.  You are strong enough to move through fear with grace. 
Tuesday, December 7, 2010:  Keep your focus fixed today on eternal truths.  Do not let the confusion of this world sway your attention.  You are alive.  You are free.  You are loved.  You can forgive and you have free will.  Enjoy the day! 
Friday, December 3, 2010:  Move closer to your spiritual center today.  Live this day from your core knowledge, your ancient "knowing."  You are a child of God.  Touch with true caring, listen with compassionate ears, speak with the tone of the Angels.  You make a difference. 
Thursday, December 2, 2010:  Don't skimp on your attention to detail today, take your time.  Enjoy your tasks and offer each effort up to the highest good.  If we approached each task, with the thought that this act could change everything....Imagine the possibilities. 
Wednesday, December 1, 2010:  Begin again today.  You have the power to wipe the slate clean; right the wrongs, refresh your intention and restore your true self.  Be still for a few minutes and connect with this powerful energy.  You can begin again today...You hold power choose it. 
Tuesday, November 30, 2010:  In the "big scope" of eternity...the problems you face are really not that significant.  In the years to come, you most likely will not recall any annoyances that surface today at all.  What you will remember is how well you loved others, how strong your connection to the Holy Spirit is, and whether or not you lived with sound integrity. 
Monday, November 29, 2010:  The greatest gift you can give yourself is the consistent practice of peacefulness.  Connect with peace today - close your eyes and offer yourself to this amazing energy.  As you melt into the bliss of calm...God will wrap a bow around your heat...then YOU become a gift to all you encounter. 
Wednesday, November 24, 2010:  The key to happiness is thankfulness.  When we practice gratitude faithfully and regardless of our circumstances; we endear ourselves ever more deeply to God's divine wishes.  It is not the events in our lives that make us happy; it is the gratitude in our hearts. 
Tuesday, November 23, 2010:  Be thankful today.  Your blessings are numerous and each time you reflect upon them, you graciously expand your awareness of goodness.  Prosperous, kind, and happy people connect themselves to the energy of gratitude each day.  The more you reflect upon goodness.....the more goodness surrounds you.   
Monday, November 22, 2010:  The more you reflect upon goodness....the more goodness surrounds you.  Be thankful today.  Your blessings are numerous and each time you reflect upon them, you graciously expand your awareness of goodness.  Prosperous, kind, and happy people connect themselves to the energy of gratitude each day.
Friday, November 12, 2010:  Have faith that you will be divinely led today.  Allow peace to wash over you and rest in the knowledge that you never walk alone.  Today's challenges will give birth to tomorrow's successes.  Have Faith Today. 
Thursday, November 11, 2010:  Take solace in the simple pleasures today; the tenderness of holding the hand of a loved one, the miracle of sunlight streaming through your window panes, a comforting cup of steamy coffee.....enjoy your moments.  God wants you to celebrate this day. 
Wednesday, November 10, 2010:  Today is a new day, radiant with possibilities.  The new dawn brings with it fresh opportunities.  Can you hear the chorus of Angels encouraging you to be your best authentic self today?  Choose words that create harmony, actions that further benevolent pursuits, and thoughts that permeate your mind with peace.  Live Well Today.
Tuesday, November 9, 2010:  Stretch yourself today and offer compassionate understanding to someone who has been unkind to you.  People behave poorly out of fear; we have all done this.  Do not allow yourself to be drawn into negativity that has nothing to do with you.  Breathe deeply and enjoy your numerous blessings.   You are alive! 
Monday, November 8, 2010:  Forgiveness is the way, the light, and the only possible choice for a future drenched in peace.  Who can you forgive today?  Begin the process by identifying someone with whom you hold resentment.  Make a concious choice to let go of the anger - it serves no one.  Let Go.  Let Love.  Make God Smile Today. 
Friday, November 5, 2010:  You may become frustrated with someone today.  Take a moment to consider the motive behind the behavior.  Look deeply at this person and fill your heart with compassion.  You and he have much in common....You are motivated by love and crippled by fear, this is the human condition.  Embrace compassion today and expand your evolving connection to all living beings. 
Thursday, November 4, 2010:  Walk peacefully through this day.  Take one step at a time and if difficulties arise - remember to "Offer it up."  Allow the energy of peace to settle into your bones; it is that feeling of peace that is far more REAL than the worldly frustrations you face.  Rely on your Faith, it is strong. 
Wednesday, November 3, 2010:  Instead of shaking your fist at the cosmos and wondering, "Why me?"  Look upon challenges as opportunities to grow more spiritually attuned.  When your plans are thwarted, consider it a "Divine act of intervention."  You may think you know best, but in truth - you may not.  Trust. 
Tuesday, November 2, 2010:  Turn over your worry, anxiety, and desperation to God.  Allow Him to smooth over those rough edges, and bring peace to your weary spirit.  We carry with us an amazing coping tool and that is "prayer."  Pray, smile, and begin the day - You are here for a reason. 
Monday, November 1, 2010:  Life is full of distractions; this is precisely why we must focus sincerely on maintaining the practice of mindful awareness.  Provide yourself with reminders - otherwise it is easy to lose sight of this goal.  You will be much stronger spiritually and emotionally if you "plug in" to God throughout the day.  Enjoy this day - You Are Alive! 
Friday, October 29, 2010:  Begin this day relaxing in the presence of The Divine.  It is very important to begin each day softly, quietly, and sincerely dedicated to bringing forth our highest self.  When we start the day with Spiritual focus, there is no limit to what we can accomplish. 
Thursday, October 28, 2010:  When someone is unkind or uncaring toward you, it is an opportunity to grow in Grace.  Life is not always fair or just; the one thing that is purely consistent is God's love for us.  If you feel the urge to lash-out at someone who has hurt you....instead choose Grace.  Ask God to wash your emotional body and heal your wounds. 
Wednesday, October 27, 2010:  Trust.  Know that you are not alone; the path you trod is filled with welcoming advisors.  God has enriched our lives so that we live in the good company of Angels.  If it is answers you seek, be patient and know that your prayer has been heard. 
Tuesday, October 26, 2010:  Follow the path of positive thought today.  Look for what is good, life affirming, and healing....Resonate with that "energy" and let go of the rest.  Affirm your intention to create positive experiences today; smile now, breathe deeply, you can do this! 
Monday, October 25, 2010:  Do not be discouraged.  Your true purpose and innermost desires will come to fruition in Divine Time.  There is nothing else you can do to "hurry" things along.  In fact, trying to manipulate an outcome at this point will only cause further delays.  Embrace Grace. 
Friday, October 15, 2010:  Your connection to The Divine provides deep nourishment for the Soul; without it you suffer, strain, and scramble for every scrap of joy in your life.  Open to true peace and lasting happiness.  Let nothing usurp your relationship with The Holy Spirit.  God's love and forgiveness are perennially available.  Enjoy this day.........You Are Alive! 
Thursday, October 14, 2010:  Whatever is troubling you today - please remember that you are strong enough to handle it.  Hold on to your faith and know that God considers our challenges to be opportunites.  You will find a way to be victorious over your circumstances.  Stop fighting the tide and listen....your answers are coming. 
Wednesday, October 13, 2010:  Go ahead and create that "To Do" list; after you do that....offer it up and enjoy the day.  We spend too much time thinking about our lists, instead of resting in the present task.  Reduce the amount of time you hassle yourself - make the list, offer it up, and focus on enjoying your current project. 
Tuesday, October 12, 2010:  Delight in your generosity today!  Allow the generous nature of others to fill you with joy.  Be aware of the flow of give and take; it is the energy of life.  When we give without having been asked, we provide the receiver with the inspiration to do the same.  Sometimes we need to remind one another that we are here to positively interact - it sounds basic, but we are easily derailed.  Be generous today in your speech, thought, and action. 
Friday, October 8, 2010:  Practice consistency today.  Give yourself and those who love you the gift of continuous stability in your presence.  If your emotions become tumultuous, take a quiet break alone, then you will be able to return with calm authority.  Consistent unconditional love is the greatest gift we can offer one another. 
Thursday, October 7, 2010:  Take today as it comes.  There is a balance between manifesting your destiny and trusting that life is unfolding in Divine Time.  You control many aspects of your life, but not ALL of them.  Find the balance....Know when to chase after your desires and when to let them come to you in Divine Time. 
Wednesday, October 6, 2010:  When you feel weary, lean on your faith.  Know that faith is the salve that heals a tired body, mind, and spirit.  Allow this powerful energy to fortify and refresh you.  Take a deep breath now, and connect with your faith in this present moment; you are here for a reason.
Tuesday, October 5, 2010:  Cling tightly to your connection to The One Great Love that knows and sees all of your difficulties and triumphs.  Offer up your concerns and then concentrate your efforts in living more finely attuned to the relationship you have with God.  Your answers are in the ethereal, not the material. 
Thursday, September 30, 2010:  Learning how to become more forgiving in our daily lives is an issue of pivotal importance for the future.  The energy of forgiveness builds upon itself and creates more forgiveness.  Moving forward and taking even the smallest step is a great accomplishment. 
Wednesday, September 29, 2010:  The key to living a life of abundance is recognizing that you already do.  Give thanks for your blessings.  When we fix our mind on the gracious acceptance of good things, we generate positive energy which naturally brings in more "good things."  Positive begets positive.  Give thanks today...it's GOOD for you! 
Tuesday, September 28, 2010:  Give your weariness to The One today.  Release your sadness, fatigue, and concerns to God.  Allow the unconditional love of The Holy Spirit to fill you with peace.  You are loved.  There is no problem that cannot be solved when you allow yourself to be empowered by this Mighty Love. 
Monday, September 27, 2010:  It is Monday!  Welcome to another week of life, adventure, love, and expansion.  Relax into the knowledge that your "free will" coupled with Divine Guidance will never fail you.  Understand that any weakness you feel is a call for deeper reflection. 
Friday, September 24, 2010:  Bring yourself back to the practice of loving speech.  You do not need to voice every thought or judgment you may have.  If we are only speaking to make ourselves appear "right" or "superior" then it is best to be quiet.  Your wisdom speaks volumes in silence. 
Thursday, September 23, 2010:  The night comes earlier now in the Northern Hemisphere and Autumn begins her stronghold over the land.  Let us follow suit and show our glorious colors today!  Autumn is a time for celebrating the harvest and giving thanks for the blessings in our lives.  Show your gratitude today - Show your true colors. 
Wednesday, September 22, 2010:  Your true Home is in this moment, connected to the Divine Love that awaits you.  Know that you are loved, cared for, and considered; remain in this truth and you will feel well today.  Stay HOME today.
Tuesday, September 21, 2010:  Quiet your mind today.  Release the chatter and focus on this moment - rest in this moment.  You will be far more productive if you take the time to do this throughout the day.  Take 1 minute in the office, in your car, at home, in line at Starbucks.....and just breathe in and out....don't think; just breathe.  Do it now.  Why not? 
Monday, September 20, 2010:  Sometimes we say things we do not mean.  We speak in haste and anger...this is an unfortunate but very human trait; remorse is a useful emotion in situations such as this.  When we can feel remorse, we can offer the promise of change to ourselves and others.  Just remember that true change can only occur when it is powered by intention.  Connect with your intention, find your practice and work it.   
Friday, September 17, 2010:  My stability is not dependent upon whether or not things "go my way" today.  It is however reliant upon how well I care for myself by breathing deeply, smiling from within, reading supportive materials, and listening to uplifting sounds.  Work your practice today - Stay in Peace. 
Thursday, September 16, 2010:  If you are angry, do not speak; wait until you can relay your position with calm authority over your emotions.  Speaking while angry only creates more turmoil, more suffering, and more devastation.  Walk away.  Return when you can respond rather than react. 
Wednesday, September 15, 2010:  Believe in what you do not see with human eyes.  Look deeply beyond the veil today, and know that there are many positive efforts being made on your behalf.  You are not alone.  Breathe deeply, smile, keep moving forward - All is well.
Tuesday, September 14, 2010:  Pretend for a moment that the fate of humankind rests on your shoulders.  In truth, there are many people counting on your solid decisions and responses.  What choices will you make today?  How will you speak to your loved ones?  How will you interact with strangers?  We are endowed with free will.  Exercise your will wisely today. 
Monday, September 13, 2010:  The only answer is forgiveness.  Worldwide perpetuation of violence in our countries, towns, and homes must stop.  Find a way to forgive someone; do this in honor of all the lives taken on 9/11 - they know better than anyone that forgiveness holds the key.
Friday, September 10, 2010:  Let go of the worry.  We spend a great deal of time and energy thinking about things that aren't "real."  Put your hands on something real today, take the time to hold the hand of a loved one, touch the earth, sip some tea.  Slow it down.....Enjoy. 
Thursday, September 9, 2010:  Today - all you need to do is live your life.  Live one moment at a time.  Focus on the tasks before you, and not on what is next.  Enjoy the many blessings in your life.  Your possibilities are limitless today...Only your belief in "limit" can stop you. 
Wednesday, September 7, 2010:  You are in the midst of your eternal life.  It does not begin when you pass from this realm, it began long ago.  Death is simply a portal to the land of unconditional love.  Fear not the thing you call "death," for it truly does not exist.  Live well today. 
Friday, September 3, 2010:  The energy of Compassion is universal in it's scope and reach.  Compassion crosses into every culture, religious preference, and race.  Understanding that compassion can unite us...Brings forth the realization that there is Hope.  We can create peace on earth.  We must be the peaceful and compassionate example we wish to see in the world. 
Thursday, September 2, 2010:  Who are  you?  What is it that you do in your life that makes you feel more "like yourself" than anything else?  Whatever that thing is, do more of it!  You are here to be YOU.  No one else can fill your pumps, (kitten heels, strappies, mules, loafers or flats).  You are one in a million. 
Wednesday, September 1, 2010:  In the course of our busy lives, sometimes we forget to simply ask for guidance.  Search your heart today and identify what you need to know in order to be successful and at peace.  Stop, search, ask, and listen.  This is the recipe to soothe your Soul.   
Tuesday, August 31, 2010:  Whatever it is..........Let it go.  Replace "it" with faith and trust.  The future has a way of working out for the Highest Good.  Get out of the way today and allow the energy of Goodness and Grace to envelope you. 
Friday, August 18, 2010:  There is freedom in atonement and forgiveness.  When we acknowledge our transgressions, we make room for joy.  Today is a new day.  The freshness of today is fully available to those who forgive.  Let go and embrace this given day...You are alive. 
Thursday, August 17, 2010:  One day at a time.  We have all heard this saying...And yet we often do not practice the wisdom therein.  Be present today.  Focus on the tasks before you, enjoy the pleasant company you keep, be the person you dream of being.  Today is here and all you have to do is live it. 
Wednesday, August 16, 2010:  Remember who you are today.  Connect with the virtues you resonate with...They are a part of you.  Compassion, playfulness, dignity, honor, loyalty, and integrity; all of these qualities dwell within you.  Remember who you are today. 
Tuesday, August 15, 2010:  Sometimes we become frustrated with loved ones.  We may feel as though they are not making the right choices.  In truth, we cannot know what is the best choice for another person.  The supposed hard path may lead to a soft landing, and the opposite could also be true.  All we can really do is hold one another and be there regardless of outcome.  Love completely today. 
Monday, August 14, 2010:  Allow Divine Peace to 'rush in' to the spaces of your mind where you harbor fear and anxiety.  Don't worry about your future right now.  Live well today; be a champion of integrity, compassion, and joy....this is the best way to ensure a pleasant future.  I salute the Divinity in you. 
Friday, August 13, 2010:  Our lives are but a fraction of what they could be with forgiveness as our central theme.  Consider what you are unwilling to forgive.  Think about how much energy is wasted on remaining angry.  Forgiveness does not mean you forget.  It does however mean that you open yourself up to a brighter future, unencumbered by resentment. 
Thursday, August 12, 2010:  Turn away from fear, isolation, and doubt.  You are meant for great things.  Each of us brings forth a perspective, a "knowing" of consummate value.  Express your wisdom today through speech, action, and intention.  You make a difference. 
Wednesday, August 11, 2010:  The only thing standing between you and miracles is the belief that they won't happen....to you.  Embrace your true self today.  You are forever sealed in the love the Holy Spirit holds for you.  Celebrate the day.  Believe. 
Tuesday, August 10, 2010:  Without forgiveness ever present in our daily lives, there can be no peace.  Each day we are faced with opportunities to let go and surrender to a Higher Power.  Allow yourself to release today.  Surrender to the amazing grace that forgiveness brings. 
Monday, August 9, 2010:  Faith is more than just a word or "idea."  Faith is the solid advancement of thought to fruition; it is the ultimate manifestation of Spirit and matter - joined together in harmonious union.  All is well.  Keep Your Faith. 
Friday, August 6, 2010:  All healing begins and ends in the Spirit Body.  Heal the mental and emotional conflict within and the physical body will follow.  Your thoughts are more powerful than you know.  Positively sustained thought patterns are the magic wand to the suffering within. 
Tuesday, August 3, 2010:  Practice detachment of thought today in regard to all wrong thinking.  Let go of the ideas that produce suffering and perceived lack in your life.  You are more than capable of manifesting true happiness and peace. 
Monday, August 2, 2010:  Never underestimate the power you have to exert your free will.  The story of your life unfolds as YOU turn the page.  Take a few moments and write a new chapter today, fill the pages with positive affirmations and glorious outcome. 
Friday, July 30, 2010:  Organize your life in such a way that you have plenty of time to care for your Spirit.  Your spiritual well-being drives your health, wealth, and availability to love fully.  You are not a material being....You are a Spiritual Being.  Care for your True Self today.
Thursday, July 29, 2010:  Consume mindfully today.  Enjoy your food, drink, entertainment, and conversations with optimum awareness.  Many of our most pleasant moments are during consumption.  Yet, we often rush through these events as if there will always be another meal, drink, event, or chat.  Mindfulness is the path of sustained happiness. 
Wednesday, July 28, 2010:  Trust your instincts.  You are endowed each day with intuitive wisdom.  Listen...You know what to do.  Have confidence in that still, small, positive voice that directs you.  You are not alone. 
Tuesday, July 27, 2010:  There is a time for going inward, gathering strength, and mourning a loss.  There is also a time for letting go, moving forward, and courageously beginning again.  No matter where the bell curve finds you today - remember to celebrate life.  What a gift it is to breathe and to witness the inhale and exhale of those you hold dear. 
Monday, July 26, 2010:  Although we are aware that life is a precious gift, many times we forget to acknowledge this in our daily lives.  We focus so intently on the task before us and often forget to be vigilant about the moment at hand.  Open yourself to the uncensored truth today.  Life is love, joy, sorrow, success, failure, and.....The ultimate adventure.  Life is a mixed bag of circumstances and events.  Life is a gift like no other, embrace the possibilities. 
Friday, July 23, 2010:  Walk with me today, let us share a commitment to cause no harm to ourselves or others.  Speak kindly, walk softly, pray deeply, and hold thoughts which promote only goodwill and wellness.  Immediately let go of all temptation to participate in negativity.  Enjoy this day, it is a gift. 
Wednesday, July 21, 2010:  Let your anxiety fall away, allow peace to enter the core of your being; what you want is to feel happiness and ease.  These things are possible right here....and right now.  The only obstacle between you and the feeling of complete wellness is resistance.  Give in, let go, release!  You are alive. 
Tuesday, July 20, 2010:  Pay attention to your spiritual fitness.  We focus much attention on financial and physical wellness; and yet we often glaze over that which controls all else.  Spiritual health is vital to happiness and success, it is what shapes, molds, and manifests our destiny.  We are born with free will, exercise those muscles today! 
Monday, July 19, 2010:  Have faith in every aspect of your life today.  Know that you will be cared for no matter what the outcome is.  You are loved, supported, and now encouraged to rest easy in the arms of a loving Creator.  Renew and recharge.....All is Well. 
Friday, July 16, 2010:  Visit a waterway today.  Go to a creek, stream, river, canal, brook, pond, puddle, lake, or ocean and give thanks for clean water.  Focus on our beautiful bodies of water as healthy and well.  Send out much love and appreciation to all living beings; each moment we heal. 
Thursday, July 15, 2010:  Purify your thoughts today to more clearly reflect the beautiful soul within.  We shape our outer reality by the workings of our inner environment.  "As he thinketh in his heart, so is he."  Proverbs 23:7 
Wednesday, July 14, 2010:  "We seek, stock, want, embrace, and push love away.  We fear and cling fiercely to it, often in the same instance.  How can we experience love more deeply in our lives?  What walls, barriers, boundaries, and fears can we let fall down in order to allow ourselves to be naked in the presence of love?"  An excerpt from: The Caterpillar's Flight. 
Tuesday, July 13, 2010:  In gratitude we greet this day.  With unconditional love extended, we move with the energy of Hallelujah.  Being thankful is not just a "nice" thing to do; it is prayer in action and provides fertile soil for the magic of manifestation.  God loves it when we engage in miraculous gratitude!  Make the Angels smile today. 
Monday, July 12, 2010:  Have faith in the subtle under workings of your life today.  There is a current of energy all around you, it will move in the positive direction you intend it to.  Align your thoughts and intentions with your most heartfelt and pure wishes.  What you don't "see" with human eyes is far more real than what you do.  Have faith.
Friday, July 9, 2010:  Loss is a part of life.  If you are dealing with loss, try to remember that every ending brings a beginning.  Whatever you percieve as a loss, you may see as a gain in the months to come.  God knows you are strong and capable of demonstrating true grace in the face of loss.  Doors open; close, and then open again.....loss can bring adventure in it's wake - be open to new possibilities. 
Thursday, July 8, 2010:  Be aware of guideposts that beckon you to open; realize the miracles that transform the way you view yourself and the world.  Look for signs, we are presented with opportunities each day to expand our awareness.  Each interaction, experience, and emotion can lead you to enlightenment.  Be the answer the world seeks. 
Wednesday, July 7, 2010:  Time flows from one day to the next, from one anticipated event to another, and from happy "Hello's" to bittersweet "Goodbye's."  The key is recognizing this pattern of impermanence and then surrendering to the truth.  We have no control over whether the current will pull us down the river of life or not.  But we can control where we steer our canoe.  Bright Blessings to you this day, enjoy each and every moment. 
Tuesday, July 6, 2010:  May you realize the path of unconditional love today, such love is not revealed to us in the "perfect moments."  But rather, during those times in which our practice is truly challenged.  When we are being stretched to respond with love - that is when we show our unconditional prowess.  Demonstrate the depth of your intention to live within the power source of unconditional love today. 
Monday, July 5, 2010:  Allow harmonious beliefs to dominate your thoughts today.  Inharmonious beliefs imprison the mind.....the opposite set us free.  When you find yourself stuck in "wrong thinking," immediately self-correct and bring positive thought in over negative; you have the inner strength to do this.  You know these things, you just need to re-member.  Have a blessed day.
Friday, June 25, 2010:  Relaxation is defined as "A return to equilibrium."  The importance of relaxing cannot be overstated.  We must take time in our lives to retreat, relax, and rejuvenate; then we can return to our lives with renewed enthusiasm and insight.  Take the time you need to care for yourself, the benefits of this practice will ripple throughout your life. 
Thursday, June 24, 2010:  Avoid resisting sadness, for it will only manifest into bitterness.  Resist not anger, for it will become resentment.  Sadness and anger are natural emotions, they always bring wisdom teachings in their wake.  Allow your emotions to teach you and release "resistance" today.  You are strong enough to do these things. 
Friday, June 18, 2010:  Allow God's thoughts to pass through you today.  Open yourself to Divine Wisdom and allow the power of The Creator to move you throughout the day.  Listen to the inner stirrings of your soul and know that God speaks through your intuition.....You know what to do.  Have a beautiful day! 
Thursday, June 17, 2010:  My happiness is dependent upon how well I practice each day.  My happiness is attained through my dedication to my practice.  Stay connected today to your beautiful, loving, and joyful Spirit!  No matter what our circumstances may be, we have a choice to make each day...to stay in "spirit" or to venture away from it.  Embrace your truly skillful and intuitive virtues today and be happy.  You are strong enough to maintain your practice of mindfulness.
Wednesday, June 16, 2010:  The secret to happiness is in the very basic and elementary practice of mindfulness.  Advance your ability to walk, eat, speak, and listen in full awareness - and joy will fill you.  The more cognizant we become of each passing moment, the more we appreciate the miracle of life.  Being "mindful" may sound simple, but I assure you that the challenge of remaining present will keep your attention.  Enjoy the day! 
Tuesday, June 15, 2010:  Forgive yourself today.  Make amends, speak your truth, and share deeply from the heart.  It is a heavy load to carry the burden of past transgressions day in and day out.  In order to be truly free, we must face our mistakes head-on; only then can we move forward unencumbered by fear.
Monday, June 14, 2010:  Focused thoughts always have dominion over unfocused.  Strong thought forms trump weaker ones every time.  You have a choice.....infuse your life with postive thought or destroy it with negative.  Make today a wonderful day and choose wisely. 
Friday, June 11, 2010:  Each day many people feel helpless, desperately yearning for answers.  The best thing we can do to ease our suffering and cultivate lasting solutions is to quiet the mind and breathe deeply.  Do this for 5 or 10 minutes when you are in the "thick of it," and you will emerge fresh, renewed, and ready to manifest.
Thursday, June 10, 2010:  Love with all your heart today.  Surrender ambiguity and allow yoruself to have moments of innocence and wonder.  On days when we remember that we do not "know it all," we often learn the most. 
Wednesday, June 9, 2010:  Your Spirit controls the flow of matter in your life.  All prosperity, material wealth, vibrant health - it comes from the way we access or block spiritual energy.  Expand your awareness today regarding how much you influence what you experience.   
Tuesday, June 8, 2010:  Mastering mindfulness does not mean that you have no emotions or thoughts, it means that you avoid becoming attached to them.  Thoughts are natural manifestations of the mind.  While meditating, don't become frustrated that you have thoughts; rather allow them to float past you on a cloud of peaceful surrender. 
Monday, June 7, 2010:  Patience will bring you peace.  Take a deep breath and ground yourself in this moment.  Cultivating patience is a skill, take it to a new level today.  Find "that place" within you which is boundless, fearless, and infinite; now build upon that and be patient.  Only good things will manifest through this practice. 
Friday, June 4, 2010:  Today, marry your desires and innermost longings to your intention; connect the dots!  Only when we function as a whole, do we manifest our most sincere wishes.  Power all your thoughts and actions in the direction of your dreams.  You are alive. 
Thursday, June 3, 2010:  The energy of forgiveness washes clean all bitterness, resentment, and loathing.  Don't waste another moment stuck in a postion of "unforgiveness."  Rise up, let go, breathe, let forgiveness fill your body and soul.  You are strong enough to do this.
Wednesday, June 2, 2010:  Purge the unnecessary from your mind today - do this by the power of your intention.  Rest in the stillness; no matter how busy you are....you can only dwell in one moment at a time.  When you become more aware of this moment, you will rest more often and be much more available to enjoy your life.
Tuesday, June 1, 2010:  There are those who sit on the sidelines and "critique" and then there are others....those who spend each day earnestly applying themselves in an effort to make a difference.  BE the latter.  Choose to leave your unique signature on the world today.  Be the answer - not the problem.  Live.  Pray.  Achieve.  Rejoice! 
Friday, May 28, 2010:  Freedom is a profound gift.  To be lifted from fear, oppression, and darkness, into the blessed light of a free life..this is the stuff of dreams.  I give thanks for my freedom and am humbled by the many sacrifices it takes to maintain it.  Thank you Veterans past, present, and future for your service.  God Bless You. 
Thursday, May 27, 2010:  Yield all thoughts toward the deeper spiritual understanding you know to be true.  Let go of lower thought forms and allow enlightened ponderous on life, love, and health to rise to the top.  You were created to live magnificently!  Have a beautiful day. 
Wednesday, May 26, 2010:  Use words of encouragement today.  Sometimes all any of us need is a gentle reminder of who we truly are.  Speak to yourself and others of the infinite possibilities that exist within and around you.
Tuesday, May 25, 2010:  If you recognize a deficiency in positive awareness today, make a transition.  Move from fear to love, anger to forgiveness, resentment to acceptance, and loathing to joy.  You can shift your perception.  You are strong enough to do this. 
Monday, May 24, 2010:  Happy is the person who loves their work.  Do what you Love!  Love what you Do!  If you are not doing "what you love," then put goals into place today to begin the shift toward your true purpose.  You are not stuck, you are a creator....Create! 
Friday, May 21, 2010:  Believe not in sickness or death.  Today, expand your mind and believe only in vibrant health and eternal life.  Shift your awareness of the "true" nature of all things under God's sun. 
Thursday, May 20, 2010:  Approach the day with humor!  Find any and every opportunity you can to laugh today.  Laugh at yourself, laugh with others, laugh together, laugh alone, laugh while you work, laugh while you play, laugh at the sun, and laugh at the moon.  Today...Just Laugh.  Give yourself a well deserved break and lighten up!  Enjoy the day. 
Wednesday, May 19, 2010:  "When we transform the condition of perpetual suffering to one of continuous healing, we will begin to effect lasting change on the planet - one soul at a time.  The things we do each day with faithful and loving intent bring us ever closer to peace.  Be graceful for one person today.  Then tomorrow, do it again.  If we focus all of our spiritual intention on the person in front of us, we will get "there" one day and one person at a time."  An exerpt from: The Caterpillar's Flight - A Story Of Transformation - Spirituality For Real Life
Tuesday, May 18, 2010:  I woke this morning and felt the warm sunlight streaming through my bedroom window and landing on my face.  I stood up and was supported by the solid floor beneath my feet.  My coffee was hot and the taste was pleasing.  There are so many things in my life that support my mind, body, and soul.  Count your blessings today.  Sometimes we forget how well our lives work; seamlessly, without effort, and unfailingly consistent.  I give thanks today for my beautiful life. 
Monday, May 17, 2010:  Have faith today.  Whatever you are striving for, longing for, praying for...know that you are being heard.  It is often difficult for us to understand why things are not moving more quickly in the direction of our desires.  The problem with focusing on where we wish "to be" all the time is that we lose sight of where we are.  There are many wonderful things to enjoy today.  The river of life will move you along, have faith that events are unfolding perfectly. 
Thursday, May 13, 2010:  Release fear today and replace it with the calm "knowing" that you are on the perfect path.  Surrender to your highest self and allow emotion to be elevated to inspiration.  You are a brilliant child of God and all possiblity is within you.  Embrace this new day with an open heart. 
Wednesday, May 12, 2010:  Slow down today.  No matter how busy we are, there are many moments throughout the day to connect with our breath, appreciate beauty, and honor simplicity.  The poetry of life is in the small, basic, and unhurried moments that gently remind us.....I am alive. 
Tuesday, May 11, 2010:  Be patient.  What you have focused your unwavering intention upon will manifest.  Have faith that your prayers have been answered.  You have been heard.  You are loved.
Monday, May 10, 2010:  If you feel as though you have a problem...ask yourself if there is anything you can do to change the situation?  If the answer is "no," then you must embrace acceptance.  When we accept situations for what they are - they cease being problems. 
Friday, May 7, 2010: We are immortal beings, true reflections of potential, love, and light.  Our connection to Spirit is far greater than our connection to matter.  Deepen your awareness of the profound link to your true spiritual nature and all loneliness, desperation and grasping will cease.  
Thursday, May 6, 2010:  Give generously today.  Push beyond all thoughts of "worthiness."  Give to others regardless of circumstance and practice generosity with loved ones and strangers alike.  Dispell judgment and give - where and when you can.  Be an example of giving freely without expectation of return. 
Wednesday, May 5, 2010:  I am comforted in this present moment by many happy memories.  I bring these moments forward with me into the future, and allow them to enhance my sense of abundant self.  Memories that are no longer useful are released to make room for those that shape and mold a bright tomorrow.  I am the creator of my happiness...the conductor of my symphony.   
Wednesday, April 28, 2010:  Spend more time believing in health, prosperity, love, and truth than you do in sickness, poverty, hatred, and dishonesty.  Never underestimate the power of your thoughts...the world is shaped by them.  Attract to you all that is positive, good, and beautiful - speak of nothing less. 
Tuesday, April 27, 2010:  Resistance is defined as "a force that opposes or retards motion."  What are you resisting?  We have much to learn from our resistance.  Allow yourself to melt into the possibilities that exist on the other side of continually attempting to push back the tide.  Sometimes resistance is necessary, but too often it is a product of fear. 
Monday, April 26, 2010:  What is your "fall back" emotion?  Where do you reside after the excitement, success, frustration, or sorrow?  How do you return to your spiritual center?  Is your emotional "resting place" healthy?  Practice falling back on the energy of peace today.  Allow peace to hold, soothe, comfort, and uplift you.  It's a new day! 
Friday, April 23, 2010:  Our lives are but a fraction of what they could be....with forgiveness.  Let the energy of forgiveness become a consistent, energetic pattern that you follow througout the day.  The more you practice, the more natural it will become.  Holding on to anger and resentment causes damage to our physical, emotional, and spiritual body.  Notice today how you hold the energy of forgiveness. 
Thursday, April 22, 2010:  Our lives are a series of moments perpetually flowing forward.  Like a river, they dip and swirl downstream to their eventual destination.  Don't worry so much about whether or not you will make it to where you are headed.  Enjoy the "float"....down the river of life today.  You will no doubt arrive - that's the way our lives are designed. 
Wednesday, April 21, 2010:  Stress reduction tip #1:  Breathe.  Breathe at every stoplight, breathe as you wait in the grocery store line, breathe as you converse, ponder, console, and participate.  Your breath is the tool you carry with you at all times - use it to support and calm you throughout the day. 
Tuesday, April 20, 2010:  Mastery is defined as having "possession of consummate skill."  Challenge yourself today to acquire mastery over your physical, emotional, and mental properties.  The first step in mastering a skill is defining that you want to master it!  Spend some time today and identify what you would like to master.  Make a list of the steps you need to take in order to accomplish this end.  Your intention is a powerful tool of manifestation. 
Monday, April 19, 2010:  Your mind is a wealth of possibilities.  Gain dominion over your thoughts and success is yours.  Make holy what you dwell upon and wondrous manifestation will follow.  Greet this day knowing that the road to all healing, all happiness, and all your heart desires - lies within your own mind, and not outside it.
Friday, April 16, 2010:  My mind is open, my Spirit is free.  I harbor no resentment of the past and I do not live in the future...my life is happening now.  Rejoice.  You are alive!  May this day be an affirmation of love, grace, and forgiveness.  Today is a testament to the gift that is given with each sunrise. 
Thursday, April 15, 2010:  Are your goals aligned with your natural talents?  The only limts are those placed upon ourselves.  And yet, sometimes a tone deaf man does not make the best musician!  The doors to success open more freely when we are pursing that which we are here to pursue; otherwise we go against the tide....the innate rhythm that wishes to be heard.  Listen to your inner calling today and follow the lyrical path of your Spirit. 
Wednesday, April 14, 2010:  It is not enough to simply "seek" spiritual understanding.  We must strive to actually attain and absorb the sacred knowledge that eludes us.  This "striving" should be alive upon waking, and while working and playing, and also as we lay our head down at night.  Strive deeply today to understand yourself and your relationship to Divinity. 
Tuesday, April 13, 2010:  Let it go today.  Allow yourself to release into the comfort of a loving Creator.  Your sadness, grief, confusion, and anger must ultimately be released in order to restore peace and joy into your life.  Why hang on for a lifetime, to something that can truly be released right now?  Let it go today, you are strong enough to do this. 
Monday, April 12, 2010:  What can I venture to understand today that I did not understand yesterday?  Allow all thoughts of a destructive manner to melt away.  Bolster thoughts of loving kindness, compassion, and prosperity.  Ease the suffering within and around you.  Strive today to deepen your understanding of the human condition and potential. 
Friday, April 9, 2010:  A great deal of our difficulties come from the resistance to control negative thought.  Replace negative thoughts with positive as they surface throughout the day.  Do not allow yourself to dwell upon the negative.  Positive thoughts create magical, wondrous, and limitless outcomes.  Positive energy always trumps negative...Embrace who you truly are. 
Thursday, April 8, 2010:  It is a perfect day, flawless in its presentation.  The sun rose and the birds are singing - what can you do to add to this joy?  Your voice, your touch, the energy you produce with every thought you dwell upon...these are the tools in your spiritual toolbox.  The way you use these tools has everything to do with what you manifest on this earthly plane.  Enjoy the day, be patient, heal, laugh, draw to you that which you cherish, and above all else, have faith. 
Wednesday, April 7, 2010:  Grace is peace...In action.  When you see a person of grace, you can also see that peace radiates from them.  Grace cannot be shaken; it is solid, stable, and relentless in its expression of true spirituality.  We all have this potential; we can live our lives as shining examples of grace for one another.  From the CD Speaking of Grace. 
Tuesday, April 6, 2010:  It is all prayer...It is all Hallelujah!  Make every moment a song lifted up to the heavens.  You can achieve this through your practice of mindfulness.  Be aware of each moment, even if the moment is painful and uncomfortable.  Awareness lifts us into the present moment, and allows us to return to the internal awareness that we can transform our circumstances, we have the power to transform all that we encounter through the power of our emotional, spiritual, and intellectual wellness. 
Monday, April 5, 2010:  My forgiveness is not conditional.  Even if you do not forgive me - I can still forgive you- and I can forgive myself.  I do not have to be agreed with or placated in order to offer my forgiveness.  I am strong enough to be present in the face of adversity and offer my full forgiveness.  Forgiveness must become a daily practice of release and renewal.  It seems in our busy daily lives, there is always something to forgive.  Look very honestly at the past and present today; work toward unconditional forgiveness and watch your life expand with the additional room you make in your heart. 
Friday, April 2, 2010:  Love does not always demonstrate itself softly.  Sometimes love arrives in a noisier package...demanding to be heard and seen.  You may need to summon your courage and stand up for your convictions; just make sure you measure your words and actions carefully...and come "from" the energy of True Love. 
Thursday, April 1, 2010:  Whatever issues, challenges, or concerns may be plaguing you today...Try to remember that this moment is temporary.  Shadows fall, dust settles, the sun will set and rise again.  Although life is eternal, we are only in this particular body, with this unique life path once.  Don't get so caught up in the minutia that you forget the magnificence of this day.
Wednesday, March 31, 2010:  Your ability to feel peaceful must not be compromised by your surroundings.  Deepen your practice today.  You try to remember many things throughout the day that "must get done."  Remember this...Peacefulness is a choice.  You can get everything done and also enjoy this day!  With a peaceful heart, all things are possible. 
Tuesday, March 30, 2010:  The love you share in a myriad of ways - returns to you ten-fold.  Share yourself today in a new way.  Push past your comfort zone into a new realm of loving and living.  "Love is the answer to every question we have." 
Monday, March 29, 2010:  If you have done or said something for which you are sorry - you must commit never to repeat that action.  Many of us are stuck in a cycle of behavior, apology, behavior, apology.  Pray for the strength to advance your practice to one of behavior, apology, resolve, and ultimate manifestation of a truer expression of God's Grace. 
Friday, March 26, 2010:  Immerse yourself in quiet moments this weekend.  Luxuriate in silence.  Allow for some space between you and the noisy world, take a break.  Then slowly bring sound back in, but this time - conciously choose the sounds you hear, naming them as they arise.  You may find some sounds pleasant and others unpleasant.  Examine your reaction to sound, smile and release the emotion.  This practice will assist you in reducing stress. 
Thursday, March 25, 2010:  Remember to care for yourself today.  Pay attention to your mind, body, and spirit.  Yield to your needs, replenish yourself - in the absence of this daily practice you leave yourself vulnerable to stress, anxiety, and despair.  Love yourself today, and you will have much more to give those you cherish in return.
Wednesday, March 24, 2010:  Speak the truth today and exercise flexibility in your communication.  Choose your words with skillful intent to resolve issues and lift weary spirits.  It is a new day, fill your Soul with the buoyancy that only "light" can bring. 
Tuesday, March 23, 2010:  "There is a profound correlation between enthusiasm and grace; a deep connection between living with enthusiasm at our core and living gracefully.  The truth is that we must first say "yes" before we can proceed.  The realization that something is missing comes first and then we begin the journey of identifying the missing component.  This process is expedited by the energy of grace."  An excerpt from "The Caterpillar's Flight." 
Monday, March 20, 2010:  Allow enthusiasm to power your pursuits today.  What is it you wish to manifest?  Pour your intention into your desired outcome, put into place the necessary elements, and watch your thought forms become reality.  You have the ability to create and maintain the life of your choosing. 
Friday, March 19, 2010:  Creating "Balance" is a matter of being aware of our need not only to be responsible, but also to have joy throughout the day!  When I dwell within the energy of balance, my joy comes naturally, whether I am working or playing.  Maintaining balance allows me to feel centered, well, focused, and grateful throughout the day.  Examine your emotional habits this weekend; seek lasting and transformational changes..."balance" awaits you. 
Thursday, March 18, 2010:  How great is your love?  How deep can you dig today in order to reveal and express who you truly are?  Weigh your words, be conscious of your actions; connect with your Higher Self and allow Divinity to shine through.  Move beyond all anger, hurt, and fear - your true nature is to love and be loved. 
Wednesday, March 17, 2010:  There is an uncomplicated and pure essence to the sincere expression of complete honesty.  "Honest" is the sunrise, a hot cup of coffee, a baby's cry, a thin layer of ice covering a puddle in the driveway, and the particular way my horse likes his ear rubbed.  True honesty simply - Is.  It does not pretend to be anything it is not; and is never lacking in authenticity or unkind.  True honesty is filled with the pulsating, joyful, and playful energy of life.  Enjoy the day!
Tuesday, March 16, 2010:  Expand your "understanding" today.  We use only 10% of our brain and this estimate is probably generous!  Today, seek to understand something that has eluded you.  Perhaps it is not a "something," but rather a "someone."  Meditate upon that which you wish to understand, ask compassionate questions, seek an elevated expansion in a relationship.  "Understanding" is the cornerstone of enlightenment. 
Monday, March 15, 2010:  Watch for the evidence of "beauty" in your life today.  Acknowledge beauty - this simple act can lift you from despair, empower you to proceed, and inspire the creation of something lasting and meaningful. The amount of beauty in the world far outweighs the ugliness.  Create something beautiful today and expand "beauty's" reach. 
Friday, March 12, 2010:  Stay in Spirit today, stay in love.  Today, practice coming from the energy of love with every word you say, every step you take, and everything you choose to create.  You are a loving, creative, solid being, and you can express this with every move you make.  And if perhaps you fall short from time to time - that's okay.  Rise again...Begin again.  You are loved. 
Thursday, March 11, 2010:  Bring together the jagged, inconsistent, contorted, rough edges of your life today.  Embrace the smooth, congenial, and consistent possibilities - they exist for the taking.  You can create a more cohesive reality in all aspects of your life.  Whether you are seeking health, wealth, or love...it can all come beautifully together under a blanket of creative synthesis. 
Wednesday, March 10, 2010:  Today's message has to do with the energy of "birth."  As spring approaches, we see the earth awakening.  As human beings, we resonate with the cycles of the earth, this is a primal awareness.  It is natural this time of year to feel invigorated by the warmth of the sun after a long winter.  What is it that longs to be reborn within you; forgiveness, joy, compassion, release?  Spend some time outside today and let the timeless wisdom of the Great Mother speak to you. 
Tuesday, March 9, 2010:  We receive inspiration from many sources.  I can feel inspired by a sunrise, a poem, a beautiful painting, or a soaring piece of music.  But the truth is, that all of this inspiration comes from my connection to God.  When I stay connected to the Holy Spirit throughout the day, I can easily see all the gifts coming my way to inspire and inform me.  Deepen your connection with Spirit today and watch as inspiration flows generously to you.  
Monday, March 8, 2010:  Sometimes the smallest gesture of kindness yields the biggest memory of the day.  Whether you are on the receiving end, or the gracious benefactor - "giving" generates an energy like no other.  Look for openings today and give, give, give.  A day filled with generosity is never regretted. 
Friday, March 5, 2010:  Abundant health, vitality, prosperity, and joy - this is my wish for you.  Focus on "abundance" today and celebrate it's presence in your life.  Fix your thoughts on abundance and you will attract this energy like a magnet to steel.  Thoughts shape form and reflect our reality.  Have a magnificent day!
Thursday, March 4, 2010:  What is your personal code, what standard do you insist upon?  Do the "right thing" today.  Focus on behavior that promotes positive living.  Speak the truth calmly and clearly, stand up for someone whose voice is not as strong, be an example of loving kindness in your home and community.  There are some who do not like the words "right and wrong" and feel that there is only "what is and what is not."  I disagree.  This is not about judgment, it is however about honor and conviction of purpose.  You make a difference, you are unique - especially when you are authentic. 
Wednesday, March 3, 2010:  Anger must ultimately yield to grace or it becomes a very destructive energy.  Making the choice to diffuse anger by calming the physical and emotional body is a transformational decision.  Today, if anger surfaces, be aware that you have a choice - you can respond with grace. 
Tuesday, March 2, 2010:  When most of us think of the word "obedient," we experience a rather unpleasant taste in our mouth.  Just for today, let's consider giving this word it's weighty due.  Are you obedient to your heart, your soul, and your true purpose?  Are you listening to the call of your Spirit?  Are you dutifully complying with the beat of your Soul's purpose?  We hear that "small still voice" each and every day....listen more deeply today and be obedient to the wisdom which beckons you listen. 
Monday, March 1, 2010:  We have a finite amount of time on Earth; realizing this gives you an "edge."  Acknowledging the fact that we are only in this lifetime for a limited time, means we need to be efficient with how we spend it.  Today, practice doing what you love, and loving what you do.  Approach what remains of this 24-hour block of time with grace, enthusiasm, and efficiency.  You will never be sorry, as you lay your head down, that you spent this day well. 
Friday, February 26, 2010:  Long ago you dreamt of the future....and here it is!  You are here now at the place you hoped you would one day arrive - The Future.  You may have achieved the goals you set for yourself, or perhaps you didn't.  Today is a new day and you can regroup and recommit yourself to your aspirations.  Your future is alive and so is your past.  Embrace the lessons, the past is what got you here.  The important thing to remember is that your life is happening in this moment.  It's fine to dream about the future, but you must always return to the gift of "now."  We must continually remind ourselves to live in the present until it finally becomes a habit to do so. 
Thursday, February 25, 2010:  Humor is pivotal to compassionate living, it is a true act of loving kindness.  When we approach life with a certain "lightness," that energy permeates every environment we enter.  Humor connects us; whether we are loved ones or strangers, we all respond to humor - it is the Universal language of enlightened Spirituality.  Laugh and smile today...Because you can! 
Wednesday, February 24, 2010:  Today will either become a memory, or be forgotten all together; this is the nature of the mind.  When we are conscious of this...we connect with "choice."  Mindfulness leads us from robotic habit into actualized living.  Embrace your capacity to be awake and aware of your experiences today.  Perhaps tomorrow you will take pleasure in the memory of today. 
Tuesday, February 23, 2010:  Step into your position of true power.  Today, I am thinking of Peter Pan and his desperate attempts to reconnect with his shadow.  Peter knew that as long as he was disconnected from it, he couldn't possibly be whole.  Focus on joining together your positive elements; by doing this, you will create a stronger, more congruent whole, and therein lies impenetrable power. 
Monday, February 22, 2010:  To find "Delight" in one's life is to connect with synthesis.  When we combine all the elements of our lives and place energy toward creating a cohesive whole, we find true harmony.  You will find love and lasting joy in your quest for harmony.  Harmonious people generate magnificent lives, you are a "delight"....enjoy your day! 
Friday, February 19, 2010:  In the stillness there is power.  In the quiet there is strength.  Take the necessary time to retreat and connect with your Sacred Center.  We must return to the calm after periods of haste.  There is an ebb and flow to life...activity and inactivity.  Take the time to rest your Soul and rejuvenate; it is imperative to your overall health and well-being.
Thursday, February 18, 2010:  Have the courage today to speak kindly even when you want to do the opposite, to perform tasks with unconditional love even if you abhor it, and to be the person who can be respected and admired even if you don't believe it yourself.  Stand up today and be the example God knows you can be.  It takes courage to live authentically - you are strong enough to do this.  Sometimes we need to "play the part" before we can truly embrace the position.  Have the kind of day you will always remember; "those days" are born from brilliant choices.  
Wednesday, February 17, 2010:  Release yourself from the bondage of fear.  Don't allow anxiety about tomorrow or the next day to control your thoughts.  Life is happening right now and the future will take care of itself.  Let your mind rest in the certainty that all shall be well.  There is a delicate dance between taking proactive steps now and having faith in the natural unfolding of time.  The challenges you face are temporary.  Today, invite your mind to be consumed with positive awareness, this is the "seat of miracles." 
Tuesday, February 16, 2010:  Imagine that you are a tightrope walker.  Walking the tightrope in complete balance gives you great joy and a sense of unparalleled accomplishment.  Below you to the left is your "work" and to the right is "play."  You hold a long bar in your hands to steady yourself as your cross the expanse of rope ahead.  If you lean too far to the left or right, you make yourself vulnerable and could fall.  But when you walk calmly and hold the bar steady; your balance is a thing of beauty, pride, and accomplishment.  Maintain balance today, do not neglect either aspect of your life; enjoy the harmony you create...this is your life to do with as you choose. 
Friday, February 10, 2010:  The cornerstone of Grace is flexibility.  When I am flexible in my daily life, all things flow with much more ease and fluidity.  Train yourself to know when to smile and allow for the unexpected to unfold as it should.  Be flexible this weekend and open yourself to the delight of synchronicity...there are no accidents...only Divine happenstance. 
Thursday, February 9, 2010:  A message of joy to you today, joyful is the day!  Embrace the energy of true joy, especially if you aren't feeling particularly "joyful!"  Let a smile cross your lips, lift a song of praise to the heavens.  Today....is a new day, fresh with possibilities.  Smile, you are alive. 
Wednesday, February 8, 2010:  Surrender today to your highest self.  Allow all doubt, resistance, and burden to dissolve into the Great Comforter of All that Is.  Melt into the awareness that there is a larger plan and you are an important part of it.  Allow yourself to rest, trust, and know that all is well. 
Tuesday, February 7, 2010:  We all have within us a certain inherent "power."  Some of us know our power very well and ignore it; while others use it negatively.  Today, identify your power in one word such as: humor, compassion, sincerity, or humility.  Your power is the looking glass through which you view the world.  The "seat of power" is the attribute we were born with, and when used properly it propels us in a postive direction.  Power is far more than strength and true power never manipulates....it exemplifies. 
Monday, February 6, 2010:  Look at the world through the eyes of an adventurer today!  Every task, no matter how mundane, can reveal lessons you knew nothing of yesterday. Each conversation, every interaction, can bring forth a new song within your soul. Rejoice and enjoy your adventures today!  The greatest "treks" are here and now - in this moment. 
Friday, February 5, 2010:  Practice evolved communication skills this weekend.  Elevate your communication to an art form.  Pay close attention to the words you speak, the way you touch, and the skill with which you write. The world is in need of better communicators, now more than ever before. Be a part of the positive flow, and express peace through your offerings, whether they are in word or deed.  Bless yourself and those around you with skillful, loving, and artful communication. 
Thursday, February 4, 2010:  Patience is more than endurance. It is being able to respond with grace when the world around you is anything but that!  The more success you have at transforming impatience, the greater your success will be at remaining calm. Take small steps today if need be, grow your wings.  Soon, you will fly through each day - strong, sound, stable, and secure in your "patience." 
Wednesday, February 3, 2010:  Many of us suffer with something I call the "over-complexity syndrome." Our lives have become so complicated that one task seems to flow right into the next, day after day. It is imperitive to connect with the most sincere, honest, and uncomplicated elements in our lives that bring us true joy. These moments are not scheduled or manipulated. They are spontaneous and a result of placing ourselves in circumstances within our own environment that provide us with simple and uncomplicated opportunites to experience true joy. You make time for everything else in your life, make the time to enjoy the simple pleasures that surround you also. 
Tuesday, February 2, 2010:  Are you healed? Do you feel sound in your mind, body, and spirit?  We are living beings and therefore our energy and wellness fluctuates daily.  We must learn how to be consistently well "within."  When the Spirit is well, mind and body follow suit.  Address what needs healing today, love yourself. 
Monday, February 1, 2010:  It is the first day of a new month! Take a few moments today to become clear about the month ahead. "Clarity" is defined as a quality or condition of being clear. When we are "clear" we become greater vehicles of our desires. Clarity helps to define our direction and purpose, it yields immeasurable gifts. Do yourself a great service today and gain clarity over your position and purpose in the month ahead, then you can set the intention...and remember...all things are possible when we embrace the energy of Intention. 
Friday, January 29, 2010:  Confront your uncertainty, fear, and intimidation today; be Courageous. When doubt fills your mind, replace it with courage. Be loyal to yourself and your heartfelt beliefs. Let not opposition or fear of reprisal stop you from advancing your True Soul's Purpose. Today...Be true to yourself...Be courageous in your convictions. 
Thursday, January 28, 2010:  You have the power to shift your mood and alter the outcome of your day. You can change the energy around you with one simple act...Smile. The energy that a smile creates is transformational, positive, uplifting, and unique. Smile at some who is experiencing difficulty and watch the shift within them. Smile for yourself when you are feeling anxious, stressed, or hopeless. If you smile enough in your life, you will move your thoughts toward a more enlightened stance, thereby attracting to you all that you desire. Smile You Are Alive! 
Wednesday, January 27, 2010:  Embrace the energy of Honesty today. You may think that being completely honest will cause you or someone close to you pain. However, when honesty is approached with compassion and sensitivity...it is a true offering of love. When we are honest with ourselves and those around us, we offer genuine and authentic versions of ourselves. Honesty promotes better living and wiser choices. Listen to your heart today and be honest. 
Tuesday, January 26, 2010:  You will never be happy if you cannot dwell peacefully in the present moment.  This moment is where life is happening.  You may live another day, or you may not.  You can plan for tomorrow, but you must not place all your energy there.  Today....you are alive.  Celebrate and wake up to the wonders around you. 
Monday, January 25, 2010: Forgiveness is like the tide.  Daily events bring memories crashing to the shore; sometimes we aren't adept enough to realize our agitation has been triggered by a painful/unforgiven event from the past.  When we become skilled at recognizing our emotions, we can let the tide carry the residue of sadness and resentment away.  Don't assume that it will not return at some point, but instead celebrate that in this moment...you have been victorious.  In this way, you will be ever more able to release....the next time a large wave crashes over your bow.
Friday, January 22, 2010:  There is a stirring in every heart, a longing within, to do what you were put on this earth to do.  Many will say, "I don't know what that one thing is."  This tells me you haven't been silent long enough to hear the stirring of your heart...the longing of your soul.  What are you waiting for?  Are you waiting for someday....Someday when you have the time, or the money, or the courage?  "Someday" is here, it has arrived - embrace it, own it, recognize it.  You are strong enough to realize your purpose in every way. 
Thursday, January 21, 2010:  Contrary to everything our culture would like you to believe....keeping yourself in perpetual motion is not good for the Soul.  As a matter of fact, it is damaging.  Make yourself stop and rest!  You may find you are surprised about how much you need to "stop."  Many of us think we do not have the time to do this, but your life is moving at lightning speed - and if you do not stop - it will stop you.  When we practice the Art of Stillness, we get more adept at being still within.  As we advance our skill level, we can become more peaceful and happier, even when we are driving 75 miles per hour down the highway of life.  Be still today for a few moments and allow yourself to dwell in peacefullness, therein lies true happiness and fulfillment. 
Wednesday, January 20, 2010:  Divisiveness causes profound discord, this we know.  The inability to come together and hear one another's point of view without creating discord in our homes and communities is a poison.  At least once today....push yourself to respond differently when faced with opposition.  Respond rather than react. 
Tuesday, January 19, 2010:  Do you have a practice in place to assist you when you feel frustrated?  Perhaps you have lost your patience and are about to say something unkind.  Today's tip is, "walk it off."  Breathe and walk.  Before you speak in anger, remove yourself from the situation and take a walk, even if it is a very short one.  Walk and Breathe.  That's all you have to do.  Allow yourself a few moments to be comforted by the movement of your body and breath - in harmony.  Let the energy of this practice soothe the discontent within.  Then...and only then...can you return to the situation with calm authority and take care of things with skilled intent. 
Monday, January 18, 2010:  Do you have a dream? What is it? Acknowledge the dream you hold within, visualize yourself acheiving it, put into place the elements which will support you in realizing that dream. Follow these steps and you will not only walk in the footprints of those great souls who have gone before you - but you will forge your own path as well. Nobody else can make the difference you can make. Today we celebrate the life of a man who not only "Had a dream," but was also courageous enough to fulfill it. 
Friday, January 15, 2010:  Today's tip is....figure out which areas in your life have unfinished business. Pick something to "finish" this weekend!  Choose something that you have been putting off out of fear, laziness, or anger.  Single out that one thing and then address it.  Whether it means a phone call, a letter, a personal visit, or some time spent in reflection and prayer.  Find forgiveness, celebrate your freedom, and move forward.  The only way to embrace a healthy future is through the practice of forgiving the past. 
Thursday, January 14, 2010:  There are many things we can do each day to contribute to the overall sense of well-being, safety, and satisfaction in the world. Open your heart to charitable kindness today. Do something unexpected and loving for a loved one...and a stranger. Two acts of unconditional love today...that is the challenge....that is the suggestion...you will reap far more than you sow. 
Wednesday, January 13, 2010:  When natural disasters occur, we often feel helpless.  We see images of people suffering deeply and feel great compassion and sadness for their plight.  Our Brothers and Sisters in Haiti are suffering greatly right now.  There are many concrete things that the American people and others around the world will do to supply medical care and other essentials...but for most of us, today we will live our lives, and there is really only one thing we can do.  Do not discount the power and breadth of this one thing.  "Pray."  Pray with your whole heart and soul; pray with the heartfelt desire that help will come, and lives will mend.  Dedicate the warm cup of coffee you drink to those who are suffering.  Offer up the warm meal you enjoy to those who have died.  Give of yourself in this way - not out of guilt - but with full awareness that it does make a difference.  Our prayers and positive thoughts uplift the burden carried by so many. 
Tuesday, January 12, 2010:  Go about your day with an enthusiastic Spirit!  The effort it takes to be negative is far greater than the effort it takes to be positive.  If you are feeling resistant in carrying out a particular task today, stop for a moment, take a deep breath and smile.  Rededicate yourself to the well-being of your family, your friends, your community, and yourself.  Connect with why you do what you do.  Be enthusiastic.....You Are Alive.  
Monday, January 11, 2010:  Embrace the energy of "kindness" today. It is easy to say, but quite challenging at times to accomplish.  "Kind" by definition is: "Of a generous or warm-hearted nature. To show sympathy and understanding." Embracing this energy means rejecting the antithesis. When you feel agitation welling up inside of you, let it go. You have the capacity to embrace kindness throughout your daily pursuits. 
Friday, January 8, 2010:  There is no death.....Only life. Death is the shedding of one's outer shell, pure and simple. Life is eternal. We live and live and live - changing form - transforming. We see examples of this everywhere. Look at the natural world and you will see that God created us like the Oak Tree. We live forever. Acorns become trees and so on - and so forth. Waste not another day with worry. Your life is eternal, get to the good stuff and enjoy your eternity with purpose and Divine direction. 
Thursday, January 7, 2010:  An "extraordinary" life is one led with integrity, generosity, humor, and magnanimous gestures of kindness. Leading with your heart, and coupling that instinct with your own innate intelligence. And most of all, it is leaving this plane of existence better than you found it. 
Wednesday, January 6, 2010:  It is the sixth day of the New Year.  How are you doing so far? If you are suffering and feel unsure about how to proceed....Give. The act of Giving is the perfect clarifying agent. We must make each season, the Season of Giving, and not just at Christmastime. Empower someone who has lost their way today. The person you assist may profoundly affect the life of someone you love tomorrow. In giving, we gain far more than we can imagine. 
Tuesday, January 5, 2010:  "Today I will let go of my anger. I will soften my gaze and choose forgiveness over pride, happiness over sorrow."  From THE CATERPILLAR'S FLIGHT by Laura Lester Fournier 
Monday, January, 4, 2010:  Do you believe in Magic?  Defined as a "mysterious quality of enchantment;" ask a child about magic. Children are closest to God in many ways, because they have so recently been in His loving embrace and are very aware and available for "magic."  Magical is the sunrise, the sunset, the stardust, and the sparkling dew. Magical is This Moment. Don't let the day pass without acknowledging the magical daily events in your life......celebrate! 
Friday, January 1, 2010:  A New Year and a New Decade has arrived, another opportunity to begin again. Bring fresh perspective into this new calendar year. Commit to making changes that you have only dreamt about. Challenge yourself in making this the year you keep your word....to yourself. Forgive, Believe, Surrender, Celebrate.....You Are Alive. 
Have a beautiful day!
