I just returned from back-to-back mindset/business growth retreats,
with two amazing women, Monica Shah and Heather Dominick. It was
six full days of intense inner work, with a couple of days off in between. Read More . . .
While writing this, it's Father's Day, which can be a tricky day for
some of us. Maybe we didn't have and still don't have the best
relationship with our dad. That's the case for me. How about you? Read More . . .
Welcome to a series of blogs I'll write on Tuesdays, in which
I'll outline the nine attributes of a Worthy Self-Advocate. How will
you benefit? My hope is that you will take the ideas/concepts and
drop them down into implementation or wisdom so you can boldly
create a fulfilling life without apology by loving and accepting yourself. Read More . . .
Do you understand the power of your emotions and how they impact your physical experience?
Negative emotions can be toxic to your body, and they have a cumulative effect over time.
Sustained negativity will takes its toll as "dis-ease" in your body. The body is innocent and
responds to our resistance to life and to our thoughts and subsequent feelings. So it pays to
pay attention to what we're feeling. If our experience of life isn't what we want it to be,
would we be willing to examine beliefs that no longer serve us? Once we shine the spotlight of Truth on our beliefs and question them, "Is that really true? Am I really unsafe?
Am I bad or broken just because I have a habit?" and on and on, we have access to unlimited freedom.
Louise Hay, metaphysical lecturer and teacher and best-selling author of numerous books, wrote
You Can Heal Your Life. I highly recommend this book. It has a List of physical ailments and next
to each is a probable emotional cause as well as a suggested new thought pattern.
I often refer to this List to understand what is going on with me emotionally and to reframe how I'm thinking;
it serves as a paradigm or belief system shift that serves me better. A pattern shown is a pattern blown.
Another wonderful resource that is even much more comprehensive is Michael Lincoln's (PhD) Messages from the Body.
It's over 700 pages of "windows into the subconscious." Michael is a straight-shooter and doesn't hold back about
what may be going on in our body. Some of his explanations may seem extreme, and our case may not be nearly
as dramatic. But his renditions are uncannily accurate. Here is an example. I have occasional swelling in my hands
and face, and so I decided to look it up in the List. Swelling: "Being stuck in thinking, clogged, painful ideas.
What am I afraid of losing? What or who won’t I let go of?" We all feel stuck at times, whether in our jobs, business,
in a relationship, in our bodies, etc. The suggested new thought pattern is "My thoughts flow freely and easily.
I move through ideas with ease. I willingly release with joy. I willingly release the past. It is safe for me to let go. I am free now."
If feels so wonderful to say and really mean these things, and my swelling then goes away.
Let's face it we all have our challenges that
affect our motivation.
Yesterday, after the idea that my advertising
efforts were not going well, I shifted my focus
to another situation in my life.....my dad's estate.
Now that dad is gone and the smoke has cleared,
I am in the process of selecting an estate sale company
to handle the sale of the remaining contents.
So, I went in to researching different companies and
found one that is having a sale and I went to check it out.
After walking around a while I had several thoughts. First
thing I noticed was a variety of old time possessions which
reminded me of my dad. Then I saw how things were
"priced to sell", both observations were disturbing!
But, what really got to me the most was seeing how all
the people come out to get a deal and "pick over" the
remains of what the deceased person cherished so much.
Have you ever had to experience this? Well, I was not in
the mood to do any marketing, and doing more with the
estate sale wasn't helping me feel motivated!
HMMM....what else could I do?
Let me think, I do need to start considering a new
car, because mine is getting old and starting to
have problems. "That's it"! I will go test drive some
You see I have been working on creating my
dream life, and one of the steps to doing that
is creating my dream board. There is one
particular type of car I would find exciting to own
and that is a.........
Are you ready for this? A Jaguar! Off I went to the
nearest (and only) Jaguar dealer in Missouri or so
they told me.
After browsing around in awe of these magnificent
and powerful high performance sports vehicles I
decided I wanted to drive the F-Type S Coupe, 8 cyl,
550 HP. I'll admit I was a bit nervous driving something
with that much power, 0-60 in less than 4 seconds,
but, was willing to push through the fear lol.
Wow, what an adrenaline rush! I even got the salesman
to take my picture sitting in the driveway with me behind the
wheel!! I forgot how good it felt to dream of something
Have you forgot too? This is definitely on my bucket
list now and I look forward to filling up my dream board
with many other exciting desires.

I used to make this nutritional Reliv shake for my husband every morning. I thought I was doing it out of service and love for him, assisting him with making a healthy choice. But if I’m really honest about my motive, I think it was a way to control him to ensure he’d make a healthy choice (because truly I didn’t think he’d make the choice on his own). Read More . . .
Do you ever feel like an eight-year-old is running your life?
I’m referring to how you feel sometimes when someone or something triggers you,
leaving you drained and feeling out of control? When stressful situations happen in life,
our natural tendency is to revert to habits and patterns that dis-empower us, but that feel
comfortable to us at the same time. When we react in anger and resentment, it wreaks
havoc on the cells of our body, because they go into “fight or flight” mode. Read More . . .
Do you ever wonder why you do things that seem to hurt you?
Sometimes we do things that leave us scratching our heads, wondering why we keep repeating
the same, self-sabotaging behavior. The truth is we get some benefit from doing it.
The benefit exceeds the cost of changing, at least subconsciously. Read More . . .
My 18-year-old daughter, Chelsea, and I were talking the other day about a friend of
hers who was feeling down. This friend, Jane we will call her, wanted to isolate herself
because she did not know where she was heading with her life. She felt like a loser. Read More . . .
There are people who put their dreams in a little box and say, "Yes, I've got dreams,
of course I've got dreams." Then they put the box away and bring it out once in awhile
to look in it, and yep, they're still there. These are great dreams, but they never even
get out of the box. It takes an uncommon amount of guts to put your dreams on the
line, to hold them up and say, "How good or how bad am I?"
That's where courage comes in. Read More . . .
What is your ideal weight based on your height?
I found this convenient site that calculates your ideal weight and also Body Mass Index (BMI) www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.htm. You simply type in your weight, height, age and gender. It immediately returns various metrics, such as People’s Choice Ideal Weight and Medical Recommendation Weight.
People’s Choice Ideal Weight shows the average weight that other people of your Age, Height, Weight and Gender would describe as their ideal weight. Read More . . .
