Rekindling Creativity: Healing Stuck Feelings That Block Inspiration

I’ve heard people say they’ve receive creative inspiration from various kinds of places. I can’t really speak to this because I have limited personal experience with creativity. I’ve always believed and said, for better of worse, “I’m not a creative person.” I couldn’t conceive of what being creative meant so it wasn’t missing for me, except, though, when I came across a creation that really spoke to me. I would be in complete admiration and appreciation for the creator’s talent! Read More

Facing Our Fear of the Dark

Darkness would have us believe it’s engaged in an all-out war with the light. Is it true? Is there actually a war going on between darkness and light? Darkness (our own fear) would have us believe it will prevail, that it’s stronger then the light. It uses our love against us and others by shutting us down, enabling us to cause harm to and/or turn us away from the ones we love.  Read More

The Inner Journey to Self Love

Now-a-days people are finding themselves face to face with their mirror image. It’s usually someone they know and frequently interact with, someone they can’t stand, causing constant frustration and/or driving them crazy, and someone who has the exact opposite “self” to them resulting in constant triggering. This could be anyone – a spouse, co-worker, sibling, parent, child . . . Read More

The Body Temple – Leaving is no Longer an Option

I just returned from a 21 day trip through Peru and Bolivia. When I was deciding whether or not to book the trip, I kept thinking: I don’t want to go to Peru or Bolivia, but I kept coming back to the idea that it might be worth it since a good friend and spiritual leader was also going. As it turns out . . . Read More

How to be Free of Negative Circumstances in Your Life: Taking Self-Responsibility

This is a tough subject and the only way through it, I feel, is to be frank. Please only take what resonates with you and discard the rest. No one really wants to be told they are the source of their own misery and suffering. If you are blaming others and circumstances for your predicaments and unhappiness – you are missing a golden opportunity for some amazing changes and growth to take place in your life. Misery and suffering come from within but it’s not who you are and it’s not usually what you think it is – typically. Read More

Am I Selfish if I Love Myself? Uncovering the Lies and Myths of Self-Love

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

Healing Negative Beliefs

Negative beliefs are very destructive to ourselves and others, mostly because we believe they are true and identify with them when we use “I am” in front of things like: a burden, weak, not worthy, a mistake . . . It’s not true. You are not a burden! Your negative thoughts are a burden – more likely. Wars are fought over beliefs, we would die for some of them, believing ourselves to be “right” to the death. Many times we find these beliefs we are suffering over aren’t even ours. They are ones we picked up from our parents, family, friends, teachers and the media. read More
