Liberate Yourself! Forgive from Your Core!” published in The Daily Love, June 11, 2014

Here is an excerpt of this blog:

…The word “forgive’ comes from the words ‘to forgo or forget’. I might be able to intellectually forgive someone, but if I do not remove the emotional charge around this event that I’m forgiving around, I have not fully forgiven. I’m not saying I’m condoning what I am forgiving. I’m saying fully forgiving. I might say, “I forgive my mother, but I’ll never forget what she did to me.” By not forgetting, I am always going to protect myself from being hurt like this again; hence I am unwilling to let this incident go altogether. This is not true and full forgiveness.

So, if I’m having a hard time truly forgiving my mother, what do I do?…

“Attention – The Super Tool! How Are You Using Yours?” published in The Daily Love, May 26, 2014

Here is an excerpt of this blog:

John spoke about the power of story in our lives and how much more powerful it was to go deeper than our story. He explained that with every story there is an emotional component which is expressed as a sensation in the body, like tightness in the stomach or heat in the chest. He pointed out that our body is trying to get our attention by giving us these feelings, but instead of putting our attention on these feelings, our tendency is to go into our mind and generate a story about what these feelings mean.

“All that this story does is feed suffering,” I heard him say one day in Pain Track.

Suddenly I had an A-HA moment: “I’ve been doing this my whole life!”…

“Love Yourself and Others – Step into Goddess Time!” published in The Daily Love, March 23, 2014

Here is an excerpt from this blog:

I heard a friend speak of what a difficult time she was having in her early recovery with a husband preoccupied with sports and her two children turning to her for attention, problem-solving and loving support. She felt overwhelmed, feeling like she was constantly ‘on the job’ for her children and husband and not having enough space for herself. It was hard for her to put her recovery first – and she was repeating an old behavior: putting others first.

I recognized my friend’s torment right away. This is an issue that I am still learning how to handle. I shared with my friend a solution that has brought so much more balance into my life. I suggested, “Do yourself and your loved ones a favor – you might want to try some goddess time.” What is goddess time?!?!!” she asked…

“Letting Go of Invisibility – Let Yourself Be Seen!” published in The Daily Love, December 07, 2012

Here is an excerpt from this blog:

…Mastin recently wrote a blog in which he shared a revelation about the emotions he felt around not being seen by others. Part of what he wrote about included how he finally felt “seen” by his father and me, his mother. As I have previously, I feel drawn to respond to Mastin’s experience and share what came up for me his father and me, as parents and as individuals, during this family experience over the Thanksgiving holiday…

“Another Perspective on Intuition – The Other Side of the Story!” published in The Daily Love, November 06, 2012

Here is an excerpt of this blog:

…This time the fear was different. This time I realized that I feared speaking my Truth to Mastin about my intuition. I feared hurting his feelings if I followed my intuition and I feared NOT following my intuition. With this clarity, I could now make a choice. I thanked the Uni-verse for helping me find this fear and find clarity. Of course, the choice was up to me. And I turned right towards the fear and stared it down. The Truth of my intuition was way more important than any fear I had lingering. I knew that Mastin understood Truth, the power of intuition and could handle disappointment, so I knew that I was making this about me, and not Mastin. Oh, fear, what a trickster it can be!…

“The Practice Behind The Practice, Part Two” published in The Daily Love, October 06, 2016

Here is an excerpt from this blog:

…As I lifted my right leg, a stabbing pain from the iliac crest prompted me to let my leg fall to the floor immediately. I thought, “Whoa! That was intense…!” I stopped to reassess my approach to this exercise. “Maybe I should start this a little more slowly…” I tried again, this time only activating the muscles that I needed to lift my leg. I still received the same stabbing pain in the iliac crest – just as strong as if I had actually lifted the leg.

“Again?!” I stopped to rest, breathe and waited for the pain to subside. As I lay quietly, I thought, “I have to slow this process down even more…” My next attempt was to just think about activating the muscles to lift my leg, but not actually activate the muscles.

I still received the same stabbing pain from my iliac crest. “Whoa….! Just thinking about activating the muscles brings the same pain?!” This really got my attention! How could I slow my process down anymore than just ‘thinking about’ using a muscle? What was really going on here?…

“The Practice Behind The Practice”  published in The Daily Love, June 30, 2012

Here is an excerpt of this blog:

…For the next eight months I spent ten minutes each day down on my belly focusing on these iliac crest cells, both listening and reassuring them. I kept the process in a slow inquiry as I listened to The Uni-verse and my body. When I thought about activating the muscles to lift my leg, if I experienced any pain, I stopped that thought and thought to those cells, “You’re safe. I’m not going to hurt you. You’re not going to get cut again, either. We’re done with that!” This became my mantra for this eight month, ten-minutes/day meditation. At the end of eight months…

“Where Is The Fear Hiding?” published in The Daily Love, June 24, 2012

Here is an excerpt of  this blog:

…That night I had one thought, “I’m so incompetent!” As soon as I had that thought, I stopped myself right there and flipped that thought right on its head into, “I’m perfectly capable of finding the answers to all of my questions!” As I went to sleep that night, I thanked The Uni-verse for helping me with what I had requested. I not only received a lesson in turning fear into empowerment, but The Uni-verse always seems to have such a sense of humor! I ask for guidance and I am gifted with a major lesson, never a minor one…This always brings a smile to my soul, not just my face!…

“Give Yourself Permission to Thrive!”  published in The Daily Love, May 27, 2012

Here is an excerpt from this blog:

So, I ask you, are you coping with a physical or emotional condition where you have placed yourself in “survival” mode? Can you give yourself permission to THRIVE?

Our physical and mental health can be affected by our limiting beliefs. I challenge you, the way my son challenged me, to push through the limits of however you may find that you may be holding yourself back unnecessarily or even unconsciously, as I was, simply because I had not considered the question: “Can I give myself permission to THRIVE?”
