Who is your Wise Sage?

Mar 10 2013

  Every single one of us has our own personal Wise Sage. This is our inner wisdom. This is the voice and teacher that lives within us! When we are connected with our Wise Sage, we are able to make decisions that are grounded in love! This manifestation of love allows us to reclaim our lives! Some of us are connected with our Wise Sage, but many of us are not. We may make decisions that are grounded in fear or we trick ourselves into believing that we are not good enough to follow our dreams or create our life according to our heart’s vision. But when we are connected to our Wise Sage, listen to our heart’s wisdom, and take action on this wisdom, we are able to make decisions that align to the consequences we desire. Bottom line:…

Love Thy Self: It May Not Be Original but it is ALWAYS True

Mar 05 2013

I remember the first time someone told me that I needed to love myself…Well OK, I do not remember the person or the exact time, but I remember the period in my life when it was coming up. During this time in my life, I felt really disconnected. I felt like things were happening TO me and that I had no control over anything in my life. This was very dis-empowering!

I was shaping my reality based…

OK, so maybe I am being a bit dramatic and exaggerating just a tad—And yes, I realize that this may not sound very “spiritual,” but you know what? I am totally OK with that! Why? Because so many of our little social customs that we were forced to conform to growing up make absolutely NO SENSE! And this insight and willingness to express this comes from a place of LOVE! Without fear, I choose to shed light on these ridiculous customs! The whole matter of doing things because “this is how it is” or “this is always how things has been done” really ignites something in me! As does this matter of really…

Being Opinionated VS Being Judgmental: My Opinion

Feb 21 2013

Having an opinion is NOT the same as being judgmental. Forming an opinion comes through practicing introspection and discernment. It allows me to check in with me on where I am on certain issues. Whenever I take a strong stance on something, I scan the opinion for judgment. Before we continue, let’s define judgment and how it relates to forming opinions. Judgment really supports us in being aware of how we choose to view the world. If something seems “wrong” to us then we are judging it as such. We can then choose NOT to accept what the other person’s opinion is offering us. When I go into judgment—as we all do, I first acknowledge that I have had a strong reaction to something. This tells me that either I am in full agreement or absolute disagreement. I know this…
