Tip the Scales of Your Life

Do you feel out of balance?  Maybe it is time to tip the scales of your life!

When things just aren't going the way you hoped or planned, do not fear!  There is a super quick and easy way to shift your life from muck to awesomeness and it is called the Losada ratio.  The idea is simple, to change how things have been into how you desire for them to become requires a different response from you.  For every 1 not so good feeling, emotion or event... counter balance it and tip the scales with 3 good feelings, emotions or events.

Don't get all complicated on me.  Keep it simple for example a smile immediately produced a good feeling. So even if you are feeling down in the dumps you can shift into a higher, happier vibe, just by smiling.  Go ahead try it now, I double dog dare you!

Keep the simple good vibes going and you will tip the scales of your life!

From my heart to yours,

Where is the answer?

As I sat with a patient today I heard her say, "I will try to find a way"...  In that moment I was reminded how many of us are searching, seeking, looking to find the answer to whatever challenges are facing us on any given day.  An interesting thing occurs when you try to find something... the harder you look the more it will try to evade you.

I am not suggesting to just sit back and do nothing when a challenge arises.  But what if you didn't have to try to find the way?  What if the answers could come to you vs. you searching for them?

Not a bad idea right, this could free up alot of mental time and energy.  Here is how to make a little shift that will support a lot of ease... When searching for the answers that you seek, take a breath, move out of your head and into your heart as you ALLOW the answer to find you.  Acknowledge the challenge, put out your request for the answer, invite it to you and trust that it is on the way.

Why do this?  Why change your process?  Couldn't you use a bit of ease???

Consider for just a moment... If you allowed yourself to trust and receive vs. to try and force, how much time and energy do you think you could save from the search and potential frustration? What would you be doing with this extra time?  If you weren't stressed or strained, how would you BE? Where would you be, who would you be with?

These are the places within yourself, your relationships and life that are true to you.  Today I give you full permission to take a fresh approach and recharge your personal physical, mental and emotional energy stores.  No more "trying", no more "searching"... today is about " ALLOWING" and receiving.  

The answers are right in front of us and in fact, they have been there all along. We have each been so busy searching  that we didn't allow ourselves to see.  So just for today, let's get out of our own way and as we allow...there they WILL be.

Is it too late to Be on time?

Have you ever had an idea that spoke to you in a way that was extra ordinary?  You know the kind of idea that is just crazy enough that you say you can't do it but exciting enough that it makes you want to try.  You think about it, you may even take a few steps forward until you hit your point of discomfort. When the moment comes where you have to move beyond the borders of easy, when effort is required to take your idea from the imagined to the manifest, will you do it?

What happens if you let off the gas for even a minute?  It can slow you down, you can get stuck and before you know it... you are too late! Are you too late to be on time to share your divine inspiration with the world?

I missed the boat many times on many ideas. I would get mad or jealous if I saw another succeeding where I choose to stop.  I let me fears hold me back, they moved forward- they got to their destination on time, me... I was always late.

But then one day I got it... I should not be jealous or even frustrated, I should be so happy for another who has succeeded where I had yet to.  I was the one who choose to slow down, not them.  They are proof positive that there is a place for such extra ordinary ideas in the world.  I am now so thankful for every idea I see out in the world that is similar to something that has inspired me.  Each idea, each inspired thought brought to life reminds me to stay on track, to BE on time and to share the inspiration that comes to and moves through me in hopes that it is somehow doing the same for another.

What about YOU???  Have you been late in sharing your gifts, talents or inspired ideas???  Are you ready to be on time???  The world is waiting for the amazing YOU.

From my heart to yours,

Be. Brave

Well, I can't believe that I am saying this but... My first book is finally for sale on amazon.  This is a big deal because the process of writing began almost 3 years ago.  It has been a real journey of self.  I have moved through many moments of fear, worry, concern and self doubt.  I have faced it all head on. I rested when I needed to rest, I forged ahead when it was time to move ahead.  I always believed even when I doubted, the voice within would still speak louder than the silly voice of fear.  This book has been a reminder to LIVE your DREAM for it has been the vehicle that has allowed by to actualize mine.

Be authentically YOU... yes, BE who you ARE and who you are here to be.  I lived my own message throughout this process.  I doubted time and again who I was and it wasn't until I fully embraced ME when the full message finally came through out of my head and heart and onto paper.

So if you have ever thought of writing a book, climbing a mountain, falling in love, speaking your truth, doing something that scares the hell out of you- this is my call to YOU to go do it!  Be Brave, you have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to gain!  As you are out there, doing what is in your heart...notice how you are BEing when you are really doing all that excites, inspires and allows you to grow beyond where you have been so that you may more fully experience all that you are here to BE~

Be. Love

Love is an amazing thing, something that connects us all at our deepest level in the very essence and truth of our being. Love, it is something that we all want, desire and deserve yet how many of us truly love ourselves?

It has been said, you must give to get but what are you getting? The better question is what are you giving? Not to another but to yourself? If you are not taking the time to nourish yourself, to love the whole of you may today's blog be a dose of love to and for you and a gentle reminder of just how amazing you are.

As you read this now, I invite you to become aware of your heart beat...beat by beat this is your rhythm your natural ebb and flow...flow now into the rhythm of all that you are... welcome in and through your body with each breath, with each heart beat the warmth and light of all that is and all that you are... may you recognize your greatness, your worth, your talent, your gifts, your perfect expression of you that no other will ever duplicate... Breathe... FEEL your heart as it is beating now and know that you are a constant flow of LOVE... As you love all that you you share this love with yourself and the world around you know that you will experience unlimited expressions of love in, of and all around you...

BE that which you wish to receive and know that you are all of that and so much more...

With Love & Gratitude,

Be YOU in 2012

Be Your Best in 2012 & BE.yond...
If you have sworn that 2012 WILL be YOUR year, different from years past, I invite you to take a moment and consider why, how and in what ways??? Before you get busy doing all of the tasks on the 2012 to-do, take a moment to fully consider how you are ready to BE~

Start from the End… It is often said that goals do not work, because you reach them and then what? What is next after a goal is met, do you revert back and begin all over again or do you feel a bit disappointed as if achieving the goal was less than the imagined version of success? Before you start all of your doing to achieve your 2012 desires stop and start from the end. Ask yourself a few of the following questions to get you totally connected to your ultimate state of

• Why do I want to achieve ________ ( insert your goal of choice here such as loose 10 lbs)?
• If I achieve that, then how will I BE?
• If I achieve that, then how will I be feeling, speaking, standing, moving, breathing?
• If I achieve that, then how will I be treating myself, thinking about myself and why am I not already doing that now? Hmmm note to self, be good to self now and later 
• If I achieve that, then what type of thoughts will I be thinking in my head, how will I be communicating with others, how will I be treating others?

Do you notice a pattern??? The big question is when you think about what it is that you really want and you think ahead to the end of already having it, then go one step beyond and notice the YOU that has achieved this 2012 goal. How are YOU? How was the process? What did you need more of or less of along your way? How are you NOW that you are fully connected to how you are ready to BE?

2012 is not another year of setting goals and then letting life take over in the driver’s seat again. 2012 is YOUR year to be.come AWAKE, to notice the many opportunities available to you to experience what you desire in the NOW. Yes it will be great when you reach your goals but just think, if you connect to your ultimate state of, the reason why you are really wanting to achieve a goal in the first place, then you can already BE feeling great now.

The journey of life does not always have to be about, when we just get to point b, or to obtain a thing, a title, a relationship, a drop in pants size. The journey is a journey, this is true, but it is YOUR journey, one in which you get to choose. This is your journey, this is your year, how do you really want it to BE? You can create your story, your adventure anyway that you choose! For total success in the here and now, start from the end and fully connect with what it is that matters to you and why and bring the energy of your desire into the here and NOW allowing you to fully be.come all that you are here meant to BE and so much more!

Happy Travels into 2012 and be.yond~

Today is all about being BOLD. What do I mean by being BOLD? Well sometimes to know what something is, is to know what it is not...let me share a story...

A friend of mine went to a local bar a week ago and as she went over to the juke box ( yep they still exist) a man came up behind her and said, "lady, I like the way you are put together" then proceeded to give her a reach around and felt her up. Did you chin just drop because mine hit the floor when she told me this story? Bold yes, authentic NO. This is an example of what not to do. So what are some great ways to BE bold in your life today, minus an unsolicited reach around?

To fully answer this question consider first what it means to be bold to YOU. Next consider a working definition: Bold; to be fearless, daring or courageous.

As you are considering being bold, let me ask you if you, were to BE Bold today, how would you be feeling? When you are BOLD today, how will you be standing, moving, breathing, as you are BEing the Bold, Fearless, Daring YOU now?

To Be authentically you is to come from a place of If you could BE anyway, how do you desire to BE? This 30 day journey is all about taking time to be aware of different aspects of ourselves and as we explore different states of being, notice how the doing unfolds. Think of the next 30 days as shopping for YOU. Each day, I encourage you to take an action around the state of being and as you do, try them on for size so to speak and notice what works for you. What feels right, what supports you, what empowers you and allows you to be your best self? Keep what works, release what does not. There is no need and no time to try to make it all fit,this is custom tailoring my friend, buy and keep only what is right for YOU.

As you choose to experience more of what does fit, what does work for you in your life you will notice the unlimited opportunities that present on a daily basis. Each day the universe is showing you what you love, so go for it, enjoy it, fully allow yourself to experience the juiciness of life as you be BOLD, as you be YOU!

Tell us how you are BOLD today...

With Gratitude & Grace,
