How to Master Inner Peace

Have you ever had a sudden insight that made things crystal clear?

The kind that inspires such knowing there’s no room for confusion, doubt or skepticism?

Loooove when that happens, don’t you? It’s like a cosmic kiss!

So a few days ago, I was thrown such a kiss! I had woken up feeling kinda funky and decided to take a walk in the park to shift my energy and mindset. And even though I was having my usual morning chat with God, rather than letting Spirit flow through me, I was mentally trying to force and control my shift with no luck.

Have you ever done that?

Frustrated I asked, “Ok God, help me see what I need to see, know what I need to know and feel what I need to feel” and literally within seconds I was given a great gift – a wonderful insight.

This gift of an insight beautifully dovetails with the lessons learned in Egypt I’ve been sharing with you over the last few weeks. Nature has always brought me powerful messages and this day was no different.

My eyes were guided to the tree’s surrounding the path in the park. Suddenly I saw them in a whole new light. My attention was drawn to the trunk- solid, sturdy and vertical – reaching up to the heavens, fed by the Light.

Instantly I understood the trunk to be symbolic of our inner core strength – what I call your Diamond Power ladies. We too have vertical access to this Light and when we connect with this Source, man oh man do we become sturdy in our core!

Now think about a tree’s branches – they are like our thoughts – some are strong and supportive but others are twisted and gnarled like our monkey mind thoughts that make us crazy. All we have to do is prune some of those branches back and we can do this by turning our gaze upward and connecting with Infinite Love/God and we will come back to center, our trunk, becoming strong and sturdy again at our core.

It’s amazing how simple things can be when we give ourselves permission to make our lives easy and peaceful isn’t it?

As I left the park I felt exhilarated – by letting go, opening, and allowing a power far greater than me have it’s way with me, I felt fantastic, full up and rock solid in seconds. Wow!

Here’s to getting out of your own way, opening to the Light, and anchoring into strong and sturdy!!

2nd Lesson from Egypt

Last week we talked about the choice between staying connected to God’s peace within or indulging in the chaotic distractions of our outer world. I invited you to join me in a one-week challenge to become aware of your options and make a decision that serves your highest state of Being so you can maintain more joy in your life. How did you do?

I have to be honest and completely transparent about the last week for me – it was pretty up and down. My sister-in-law is in the hospital and I got completely riled up at the incompetency of the doctor who was treating her. Fortunately she was transferred to a different facility with higher quality care where she was diagnosed accurately and is receiving the meds she requires.

But until that happened it was a roller coaster of anger, fear and prayers. Boy did amnesia set in several times around staying in God’s peace!! Geeeez Louise!

I found myself getting extremely angry and emotional, blaming and judging the doctor. All stemming from my huge fear that his misdiagnosis and blunders might lead to losing my sister-in-law whom I love deeply – she’s been a big part of my life since I was 16.

Have you ever been in a situation like this? Where you feel helpless and you know your emotions are not contributing to a positive outcome but you are gripped by fear?

What do you do to turn a situation like this around?

Lessons learned in Egypt

I just returned from an epic pilgrimage in Egypt – it fulfilled and exceeded a bucket list dream I’ve had since I was 7! So excited to share the wisdom gained from this powerful experience over the next weeks and months with you.

One insight I’d love to start off with occurred on the last day of the journey. It had been arranged for our group of 65 to have private access to The King’s Chamber in the Great Pyramid. So in the wee hours just before dawn, flashlights guiding our way, we climbed the narrow passageway to the sacred space. After 20 minutes we arrived – the room was large with high ceilings and felt more spacious than I imagined it would be.

We cozied up sitting against the walls and laying on the floor in anticipation of what was next. Our pilgrimage leader, Mary Morrissey, instructed us to turn off all flashlights and then in the pitch darkness of the apex of the pyramid (so surreal!) led us into a silent 30-minute meditation to connect with God.

As I became one with the vertical stream of God’s loving light. The message was powerful –

The secret to living a life of ease and True happiness is not only possible, it’s simple.

All one has to do is connect with God’s love and let that guide us. When we do this drama, despair, disappointment, confusion and all fears fade away… and life becomes easy and full of joy.

This is your Diamond Power ladies – confirmed!!

Next we were offered the opportunity to go down and sit in the power point pit of the pyramid. When I heard this I could not believe my ears – seriously??? Jumping out of my skin with excitement it felt like I was in an Indiana Jones adventure.

With flashlights in hand a few of us braved our way…we descended backwards through a steep, small dark tunnel, and ultimately crawled on hands and knee’s into the heart of the pyramid. I arrived first in my group and had the privileged opportunity to sit in this sacred space alone and feel the pulse of the pyramid. It was a peaceful loving energy I’ve never felt anywhere else. Pure love that vibrated to the edges of my body – soooooo incredible.

When we came out of the pyramid it was daylight and the chaos of Cairo surrounding the great monuments had begun. What a stark contrast – two totally different realities side-by-side, co-existing in the same city. And man oh man, the temptation to let my mind be pulled from the peace of the pyramid to the struggle of the city was great. What choice would win?

LESSON LEARNED

The awareness I had and want to share with you is that we are like the pyramids – we are these beautiful unique bodies and within us lay the sacred space of our hearts and minds (our diamond essence) – where we connect with the love of God (our Diamond Power) and enjoy peace and happiness. Surrounding us are the continual distractions, bright shiny objects and dramas that seduce us and beg for our attention. Often successfully luring us from our connection to inner loving peace.

Like everyone I can get easily seduced. What I realized even more keenly as I left the site of the pyramids, is that I had a choice. I could let myself get distracted or I could stay connected to the peace within and simply observe my surroundings without indulging in them. In that moment I chose the latter. Will I be perfect at this every time – absolutely not! And that’s ok. It’s something I will strive for though and allow myself compassion for my humanness.

I invite you to join me in this challenge – a challenge for inner peace. So as you move through your day and different scenarios pop up, will you let them pull you into a stressed out state or will you go within for a more empowering action? Join me in heightening our awareness; choosing to strengthen our muscle for peace, knowing that where we put our focus and attention largely determines our happiness.

Are you in? We can do this!!!

What choice will you make today?

5 Tips for Creating a Self-Love Day

I want you to pretend that we’re hanging out together at our favorite coffee shop. We’ve got our latte’s in front of us and I’m sitting across the table from you when and I look up and say, “Girl, you are overdue for some pampering “me” time!

Hot Tips for More Love this Valentine’s Day!

Valentines greetings from Egypt – while I’m on a spiritual pilgrimage to deepen my own personal journey of expansion, growth and self love you were on my mind.

Tomorrow, as you know, is the most exalted love day of the month.

How are you doing?

If you are already in a wonderful relationship I’m wishing you a beautiful celebration:)) But if you’re not and you find yourself longing to be in a deeply loving and connected partnership you are in great company. In my experience as a coach, I’ve learned that the majority of women share this common desire.

We are all on this planet to love and be loved.

And we’ve all been there on Valentine’s Day. The one day of the year that makes being alone feel even harder. Every shop window is full of hearts and red roses. Restaurants are advertising their special Valentine’s Day menus. If you were in a relationship last year and this year you’re not, the day can become a difficult reminder of what’s missing from your life.

But it doesn’t have to be this way!

What if, instead of spending Valentine’s Day focused on the love you don’t have, you make it a day to celebrate all the love that already surrounds you?

The best way to do that is with your soul sisters! Which is what I’m doing in Egypt right now.

As well, one of my most treasured memories is of a Valentine’s Day pamperfest with my dear friends Patti and Maureen. At the time, my heart was healing and their husbands were both out of town so we decided to spend this day of love together and enjoy it to the max.

This brought a beautiful realization to the surface for both Patti and Maureen. They learned that the love we celebrate on Valentine’s Day isn’t limited to the romantic rapture we share with our significant others. The love of friends is just as important as the love in an intimate relationship.

When’s the last time you laughed with your girlfriends until you had tears rolling down your cheeks? Or your ribs hurt so much and you couldn’t catch your breath? When was the last time you sat and caught up with the women in your life that ignite your soul’s passion?

This Valentine’s Day, how about you all put your heads together and plan a Girlfriend Getaway!

I love Girlfriend Getaways. A few days out of town, having fun with friends is incredibly rejuvenating. Even if it’s only for a day or two, that can be just enough to open you up to new ways of thinking, make you more creative and bring you joy.

Also, spending time with your girlfriends causes the brain to release the “feel good” hormone Oxytocin. You know that euphoria you felt after giving birth or the last time you fell in love? That was all thanks to Oxytocin.

The role of this hormone is to help us bond to others, and when we spend time with our girlfriends, its produced in abundance.

You might wonder, “If it feels so good to spend time with each other, why aren’t we doing it more often?” Here’s why: we feel guilty about getting away. We beat ourselves up for leaving our kids or our jobs behind to take care of ourselves.

But you absolutely should not feel guilty! When you take time for you and your favorite friends, you are filled up and able to be more loving, present and openhearted in your daily life.

Hear me, Honey Child: do not feel guilty for taking time for yourself!!

Here are some great ideas for a fun time with the girls!

  • Gather your soul sisters together and plan a spa day. Pamper yourselves with massages, facials and mani/pedis; drink champagne, eat chocolate. Just make sure to spoil yourselves silly!
  • Plan a weekend vino tasting adventure! If it’s not possible to hop on a plane to Napa, host a wine tasting at your place. Invite everyone to bring their favorite bottle (or two!) along with an appetizer to pair with it and enjoy the vineyard at home.
  • Have a Girlfriend Staycation! Invite your girlfriends over, make sure there’s lots to munch on and have some choice beverages on hand. Watch movies with the latest heartthrob or binge the newest Netflix series.
  • Meet for a walk at your favorite nature spot. Or make some other fun, active plan. Rent bikes for the afternoon, take a yoga or meditation workshop, sweat it out in a spin class and then refuel with brunch afterwards.

Having fun is incredibly important. When we add playtime to our daily life, we open our hearts to receiving in so many ways.

Whether you’re up for a get-together or a get-away, the options are endless. So what are you waiting for? Go call your girlfriends right now! You’ve been putting this off way too long and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!

Spice Up Your Love Life This Valentine’s Day!

Let’s face it: most long-term couples find themselves in a romantic rut at one point or another. Between your kids’ busy schedules, your demanding jobs, and that never-ending and totally unsexy daily task list, it’s hard enough just to sit down and have a conversation, let alone make time for romance.

For some women, the problem is bigger than a lack of fun in the bedroom. They wish for a deeper sense of emotional intimacy and connection with their husbands. They think back to the early days of their courtship, to their lost sense of play and spontaneity and wonder if it’s possible to ever get that back.

I’ve got good news for you. It is absolutely possible to rekindle your sense of passion for each other!

Just 8% of People Achieve Their New Year’s Resolutions. Here’s How They Do It.

Did you know just 8% of people achieve their New Year’s resolutions?

Shocking, isn’t it?

That’s why I am dedicating this month to YOUR success! With the right steps and tools you can do it!! YES!!

Why are the right tools important? Because the research of Scranton University says despite our good intentions only a tiny fraction of us keep our resolutions.

I believe it – before learning how to set goals successfully I was in that 92% where goals fell by the wayside within the first month.

What about you? How are you doing with your New Year’s goals? Are you easily staying on track or are you finding distractions derailing you?

If you find yourself in the latter you’re not alone and you’ll love today’s tool to help you stay connected to your desire. (If you missed week 1 and 2’s steps you can go here to learn more)

Acting “As If” is the third step and key to creating a future that is outside your current reality. Imagine you are already the person living the life you vision. Feel it deeply in your soul. Live as though you already have what you desire. This moves molecules!!!

Why is this important for you?

Because, right now there is a gap between the woman you are being today and the woman who is living your dream. She behaves and thinks differently – so in order to close that gap you want to get in harmony with her and that means becoming her or living “as if”.

For example – say you are single, independent and used to being alone but you want a deeply loving relationship. There is a gap in the way you are living and the life you want. To close the gap you will need to switch out the identity of being alone with an identity of being in a relationship – you’ll need to act “as if” you’re already living the delicious future of your dreams. See it, feel it, taste it!

For example you could start shaking things up by imagining yourself with an wedding ring on your finger. Notice how it feels. How happy are you? Can you feel your partner’s hand in yours? What are your senses saying? Take this experience to the core of your being. When you go to the grocery store imagine you are shopping for two instead of one. Set the table for two, clear out space in your closet and bathroom, put space in your calendar for romantic vacations together.

In other words, ground it into your foundational make-up!

When you want to create a future that’s outside your current reality you have to consistently act “as if” you are already that person with the life you desire in a very solid way. Get outrageously detailed about the ways you will change your life to match the future you are committed to creating.

To manifest your desires and goals follow these 3 steps:

1) Determine new behavioral patterns to adopt to support your desires. What new actions and routines will you put in place? Will you join an activity club, take a new class, join a gym? Smile and make eye contact more?

2) Decide how you want to show up and present to others letting your most charismatic magnificent Self flow out to the world. Will you let go of being in your head and analyzing everything to allow your feminine flow to lead instead?

3) Choose how you will spend your time – are you willing to get out of busy mode and create more space for someone to be in your life? Will you spend time with loving couples who model what you want? Will you make time for fun?

Put these steps into practice and you will create the momentum to shift your life. Remember, as you are imagining, you are feeling deeply in your body. The most important thing to connect to is WHO YOU ARE BEING in this life. See your sparkling Self gracing the world, your vivacious essence unleashing, your sensuality soaring! You can do this! I believe in you!
