The Man on the Subway

Sometimes we look at people and only see the ‘bad’ part….the part that gets us angry and causes us to point fingers and justify our attitudes and actions because we don’t agree with their methods or lifestyle. If we could all stop blaming, judging and complaining for just 7 days the results we see in our physical reality would be so much different. The whole world doesn’t need to change in order for your life to be happier or different; it only takes you. Jesus told parables to get people to look inside their own hearts before pointing fingers at someone else's wrong doings.

A ‘BAD’ GUY WITH A GOOD HEART – and how to send positive vibes to someone

Sometimes we look at criminals and only see the ‘bad’ part … the part that gets us angry and causes us to point fingers and justify our attitudes and actions because we are on different sides of the prison walls. Jesus told parables to get people to look inside their own hearts before blaming, shaming or complaining about someone else’s wrong doings. We’re all human. We all make mistakes but we also all have the ability to bring the good out in others and help them to see the Divinity that lies within themselves.

Journey Ahead

I am here on earth to live the fullest expression of my authentic self. Thus, I need to figure out what that means and what it is for me. Hmmmm.... I think me gots a wee journey ahead.
My challenge is to create a whole new life where my heart is the ONLY thing that leads me.

I'm going to live the fullest expression of my authentic self and support myself by earning an income beyond my wildest dreams from my creative passions. Somehow (no clarity here yet) I'm going to combing my passion for traveling, photography, art and writing and through the expressive telling of my expreiences (growths, successes, failures, learned lessons), help inspire others to live from their hearts too.

The Quagmire

When we understand that we come into life bringing eternity with us, all we've ever gone through and the behaviors we learned over lifetimes, we can then realize that the way our children turn out is not fully our responsibility. And, the way we turned out is not the responsibility of our parents. If we did our best in raising our children, then the guild in being a 'bad parent' can be dropped.

Art Makes YOU Beautiful: I know the secret....

A painting
REFLECTS YOU and your energy.

How does this make YOU beautiful?

Simple. Every time you look at a painting you see an aspect of yourself. If you choose art that was created by a person with a beautiful spirit, her energy is embedded in the paints she uses, the canvas, the image and even the sweep of the brush. The painting that is born of her deep inner beauty radiates that energy into your home and seeps into your spirit. This allows you to connect to the Higher Source Inner Beauty from which all heart-centered artists channel and create, and thus raise your own vibrational level. And as you know, outer beauty is merely a physical display of the beautiful Being you are inside. We don't always show this side of ourselves to others because of the walls we put up to counter the conflict and chaos we meet with every day of our lives in the outside world.

You can enhance your external beauty merely by being surrounded in beautiful artwork.

Art Uplifts your Spirit, Feeds your Soul and Magnifies your Natural Beauty while Adorning your Walls.

Celebrating a new beginning

Yes, today is my birthday. Not only am I starting a new year, I am entering into a brand new cycle of life.

Last year, 2010, was a year of endings for me. In numerology it was my "9" year, which symbolizes closure, completion and endings to all that is no longer for my highest good. And man oh man, my life was turned upside down, inside out, rotated, skewed and squeezed until the only thing left was clarity and freedom. . . or at least a few more drops of clarity and freedom.

Summer of Art

Been creating a lot of art this summer. This is my newest piece. It's still a work in progress. This is the clay part. When it is finished it will be a handmade paper bas relief sculpture and painting. And it will be on this board. Found the board in my wood shed. It has seen many weathering winters and I love the naturally worn effect. The challenge will be to keep the worn effect while making the sculpture and board work together.

Raising Self-Esteem: Strategies #8, 9 and 10

These 3 strategies all fall into the same categories so I've combined them in one post.


Sounds simple enough, but few of us ever really know how the substances we put into our mouths affect our entire body, mind and spirit. And our body, mind and spirit affects everyone around us. Foods affect our moods, the way we smell and most importantly, the way we feel about ourselves.

Strategy #7: Eliminate Labels and Judgments

We tend to label everything and everyone then “judge” them into groups, subgroups, classes and functions – including ourselves. These labels have a powerful impact on our perception of self because we “live” according to the judgments we’ve made about others and ourselves. All judgments do damage to our self-esteem whether they appear to be positive or negative. Seemingly positive judgments like, “I’m a winner,” sets us up for failure if we don’t meet the expectations we created for ourselves. And, “I’m a loser,” is failure from the get-go.

Strategy #6: Change Your Story

The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves, others and life are generated from reactions we create inside ourselves in response to our beliefs about the world around us. Our thoughts become behaviors because we choose actions according to the beliefs we hold as being true about our “reality”. By choosing how to perceive ourselves, we can either intend, believe and behave our way to high self-worth or low self-esteem.
