Expressions with a Mission

Often I think about how our world would be a better place if we all just did one thing every single day for another person. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Think about the overflow of love, compassion, service and kindness that would be spread around!

Well, in this Episode Soul Stories, with Dinora Arteaga I was so touched by how big her heart opened up to help other women, other families, and other children. She built her business around helping families, you really need to watch. She shares how she took $100 from a friend gave her to invest in a business, come listen to the replay HERE…….

Closed For Spiritual Maintenance

Sometimes when you feel you have lost your way, you are really getting back on your path. Sometimes when you feel uninspired, it’s actually because God is working on you. Sometimes when you feel like things are falling apart they are actually falling together. Sometimes when you feel like you don’t know the direction of your life, it’s because God is speaking to you and you need to listen. 

I have been in this place over the past few months where God has been working in my life in a deep way. If I were really honest, since leaving Idaho and moving to the South I feel as though my life has been in some sort of ‘holding position’ in a weird kind of way. As though I have been in an incubator, and that I can do only so much but it’s not my time to bust completely out of what is really meant for my life. The best way I can describe it is like you have the greatest pair of running shoes, and you know you are a fast runner, but your legs won’t get to full speed. You get on the track only to find your legs will only allow you to jog and not to bust out into a full on sprint! YET you can feel it right there. Anytime it’s going to happen…..  Continue reading “Closed For Spiritual Maintenance”

Faith, Patience, and Perseverance

Today in my meditation and prayer time I received words, and then to pull up my email and again, see that God is speaking to me through Joel, so I will share that message too.
Today, the message I received was around patience, perseverance and faith. Sometimes what is needed is to wait on things, because there are some unfinished things that God is working on. This means patience (which is not a strength of mine) and perseverance, and definitely requires faith. When we are planting a new harvest, we have to sow the dirt. We have to really dig it up to get the dirt filled with the right nutrients and make sure it’s hydrated and ready for the crop. If we plant when the dirt is hard and isn’t ready, it will show in the fruit that we bear.

The World Needs Your Courage!

Take courage to be that person who lives within you. Sometimes we are so hard on ourselves because we let perfection take over our minds. We constantly strive to not let the world down, but often times we are so focused on the outer world that we forget about ourselves. And this is where we forget to take courage to be that person that lives within us.

Have you ever stopped to reflect if you are living the life you want or living the life others are telling you to live, consciously or unconsciously? So often we have been programmed in such a way that we really don’t stop to take that sacred space to evaluate if we are merely living the life that others are telling us to live. Furthermore, we don’t make the connection that we are veering away further away from our heart, our dreams, our goals, and the Spirit that lives within us. As we move away, we let go of the courage to be our authentic radiant selves. We forget that we also are divine and significant.

When you stop taking things personal, you will be unstoppable

Episode #9 Listen Here

How many times do you take things personal? Whether it’s someone who has said something to you or done something that you may feel like it’s a personal attack against you? Many of us have done this and it’s not fun because what usually follows is self-sabotage or the negative inner chatter.

Here are a few Shift~Align~Transform Techniques to assist you in situations where you may be having a knee-jerk reaction (emotional response):

Evaluate the importance of the relationship and what it means to you. Process these questions: How heavily invested are you in this individual? Are you spending more of the time unhappy in this relationship or happy? Do you feel like you walk on eggshells around this person and always need to be agreeable to keep the peace? Do you feel like you need this person’s approval?

What’s In a Flaw?

When I started on the physical body part of my Mind, Body and Spirit journey a few months ago (Please note this is certainly not the first time I have been on this part of the journey, and that’s another story for another day) I had a very profound conversation with my trainer, she asked me ‘what are your reasons for pursuing this’? I told her very clearly and firmly that I didn’t feel strong in my physical body, something was amiss between my mind and body connection and as strong as I felt in my mind and Spirit I certainly didn’t feel it in my body. She asked me do you have weight goals I added equally as firmly that it would be a bonus to have a hot rocking body, as we expanded the conversation I admitted that it was in fact one of my biggest fears, she said you have a fear of getting into a certain shape? In that moment it truly hit me the extent of how this had impacted my life, I was afraid of this part of success in my life because I feared rejection from other women. How would I be perceived by other women if I was all of that and a bag of chips? Continue reading “What’s In a Flaw?”

The Story of an Art Table

While cleaning off my art table today, I started to uncover the many paint markings and drippings. Over time, these beautiful messes began to create a picture.

“I stared at the art table and goosebumps rose up on my body, my heart felt full and tears filled my eyes.” 

What I saw was a story. A story of healing, love, reconnections, passion, and friendships. I also saw tears, fears, and hesitations that were all challenged and defeated. I saw the numerous smiles of pride and self-value being acknowledged. I saw freedom to create and no judgment.

My tears streamed down on my face. You see, I have days where my doubts creep up. I ask myself “Am I making a difference”? It took the story of an art table to answer my question.

What story are you painting on your life canvas? What messy, wonderful drippings, splatters, and markings are you leaving behind as beautiful reminders of your courageous journey?

Courageously creating together,

Practicing The Art of Love: Acting vs Reacting

AUDIO HERE #248

We are exploring love vs fear in today’s Dream Big Noon-Spiration. Are you acting (coming from love) or reacting (coming from fear)? Before we begin, place your hand over your heart and repeat with me: “I am open to giving and receiving love in my life”

The opposite of love is fear, and the Course in Miracles shares that there are only two emotions in the Universe, which are love and fear.  Whenever assisting women or couples in their relationships, what I have always found is that within the problem or situation there is always some layer of fear that is present. So that has made me ponder, the whole concept of love and fear and all emotions, energy, and vibrations come from them. Like all emotions really do come from one of two families, that would be the family of love or the family of fear.

Create and Design Your Perfect Day

AUDIO #247 

How many times do you honor yourself with the a perfect day? I want to empower you to pick one day this month to honor yourself with a perfect day. YOUR perfect day! It’s going to look differently to each person, and that is what makes it so awesome! In today’s Dream Big Noon-Spiration brought to you by Sisterhood Connections Network, I talked about big vision dreaming. The more you can get used to stepping into that place of designing what our perfect day looks like without self-judgment, and then actually making that day happen, the more you can begin to create and open the doors to creating your dream life on a much bigger scale.  Continue reading “Create and Design Your Perfect Day”
