You are Perfect! Seeing Ourselves Through God’s Eyes

The spiritual teacher Babaji says, “We are all actors in our own scripts. We are the writer, director, producer, and the lead character for every script. Everyone else plays in our creation—exactly as we direct them to.” So the question then becomes, “If God and the Universe is perfect and this Great Spirit created me,…

Wherever You Go, There You Are!

Wherever you go, there you are! I love that saying because in the last 36 years of my teaching Essence of Being, many people ask, “How can I have more freedom, joy and live my purpose?” One might think, “If I just fix or get rid of that person, place, or thing, I’ll be happy”.…

Giving = Receiving

Ask yourself this question? Is it easier for me to give or receive? For many of us, it is much easier to give. We may have grown up being told that it is better to give than to receive. We have been told that being generous is noble and receiving and accepting praise is prideful.…

Expect Nothing & Gain Everything

As human beings we have expectations. We expect when we arrive at work that we still have a job. We expect that our partner will come home at the end of the day. We expect the sun to come up. These are dramatic examples, but I would venture to say that for most of us,…

Mastery: Making Mistakes Without Invalidating Oneself

Intuition or Thought Process?

I want to take a little time today to talk about using our intuition versus our thought process as you make decisions in life. The big ones, not whether to buy milk today or tomorrow. This can be a truly hard piece to discern, but as a rule, if a decision is based on your…

Who You are Makes a Difference!

Can Your Children be Themselves at School? (What other people think of me)

Jocks. Nerds. Preps. Punks. The faces change, but the titles never have. The same things that we all heard in school are the same terms that children today call themselves and other groups. As much as we try to shield our kids from those kind of negative connotations, they are surrounded by it for 8…

Breathe Through Your Fear

As we go forward into the New Year with all the expectations and resolutions that we bring, a lot of us are thinking about change. Reforming our minds, reforming our bodies, and learning to love the things that we have instead of coveting the things that we don’t. The real issue is that we tend…

The Power of the Mind

Here we are in a New Year and I have to ask you if you have been doing affirmations.

The subconscious mind is incredibly…

Family gatherings can be times of laughter and connection. But even if you’ve been living on your own for 20 years, walking in the door of mom’s house has the potential to turn the clock back. In the time it takes to set down your casserole, you are suddenly 12 years old, fearful of slamming…

Rewrite the Script

Last week we started identifying actors from our movie because they were reading the scripts we wrote for them. Also, let us look at how well we had written the script for ourselves. Obviously we don’t walk around saying “Gee I’m going to sabotage myself today. I’m going to set myself up for failure so…

Firing Good Actors in a Bad Script

We’ve talked for a bit about affirmations, but as we get into that, I also want to talk about self-forgiveness.

4 Steps to Unity

I just got a download on how to reframe affirmations so we can actually manifest the way we want to feel. The first step is to say “I want wealth”. This is a good first step because you are choosing what you want to have. However, this implies a duality of what you have and…
