Centering Yourself


It is the time of year where we are all in a hurry one way or another. Everything needs to be done or get finished at a breakneck speed it seems.

We are also at the end of another year and waiting for a new one to begin. On that thought let's do something for ourselves in anticipation of the New Year.

If you would take the time to just sit in a quiet space and allow yourself to slow down in mind and body. 

Here is some help in doing just that:

  • Breathe in a out slowly and methodically.
  • Pay attention to the breaths you take in and those you let out.
  • As you pay attention to your breathing you begin to relax......you can actually feel your muscles doing just that.
  • By putting all your attention on your breathing you find your mind empties when you breathe in and you relax because all the tension leaves with every breath you breathe out.
  • Now use your attention to find the very center of you and feel it.
  • As you feel it you find your balance.........you feel in control.
  • Let this feeling get stronger and stronger.
  • This is the pure center of who you are.


This is centering yourself mind and body to help bring the most positive and calm presence of self you can. It feels good and can be done anytime you need to.

When you feel this wonderful sense of self and control use it for your greater good to bring in the most positive thoughts about the time remaining in this year and especially for the upcoming year. 


  • Instead of bracing yourself for the worst brace yourself for the best.
  • Turn off the news and let go of any other source that does not help you to maintain a positive outlook.
  • Make your personal space a haven for peace and optimism.
  • Don't take on anyone else's negative attitude.


You are in charge of your own happiness.......it comes from within.

See life in the best light and know that by doing this you are forging a path of pure joy.

Here is an affirmation for this: "I am creating a life that suits my happiness."

Many Blessing to All

Who Says?


Are you allowing others control your life by trying to fit in by acting like everyone else?

Are you giving up the very core of yourself by not being true to who you really are because you are afraid you are not going to be accepted by those who think life should be a certain way?

Are you living a life you have been taught to live and by doing this living someone else's idea of how your journey should be?

First of all you must understand that each of us is unique. We have our own thought process and our own vivid imagination which if we weren't suppose to live a life of our own we wouldn't have. 

This is truly amazing you know.......each of us like a snowflake that has no duplicate.

We can be whoever we want to be.......do what feels right to us........live anyway we choose if we decide that we don't want to be a copy but truly want to be an original.

So the just of the matter is this:


  • Who says you can 't be whatever you wish to be?
  • Who says you can't achieve the things you want for yourself?
  • Who says you must act a certain way?
  • Who says you must believe a certain way?
  • Who says you must fit in with everyone else?
  • Who says everyone must be the same......think the same........feel the same?


It simply is a matter of following or being a free thinker.

You can listen to others tell you how to live and what to think or you can be the wonderful spirit that you are and follow where your thoughts and feelings lead you.

If you are a follower then you are allowing another person's thoughts and ideas to shape your life. Be aware of what you are being told and if it doesn't feel right then it is not right for you.

Don't be swayed by fear or anger.......they are negative faiths. 

This is about you and what you feel about any and all things about yourself and your life.

Be the one who stands for themselves remember it is you who is in control of how you think and feel and you most certainly have the strength to live life in the manner which suits you.

Many Blessings to all!

Conversations About Yourself


You know these conversations........the one you have in your head and the one's you have with other people that amazingly enough are almost always critical.

Working with clients I have found that people would rather tell you about all their mistakes.......all of their shortcomings......all of their imperfections in conversations about themselves.

Why do you think we have started such a bad habit?

These are some examples of the negative thinking we use on ourselves:


  • When we look in the mirror we look with a critical eye.
  • When we think of the past we almost always look back at what went wrong or what we did wrong.
  • When we talk about ourselves we almost always are negative about our appearance or our circumstances.
  • When we talk about our relationships we almost always talk about what is wrong with them first.


These are habits that can be broken and what a huge and positive beginning when this happens!

Always remember that you are in charge of who you are right now and when you let go of the present negativity along with the past negativity you are creating a journey that is filled with self-love and appreciation.

Here are ways to begin the habit of positive thinking about you and your life: 


  • See everything positive about your appearance. 
  • When a past mistake pops into your head just think blah...blah...blah until it passes. (You may laugh but believe me it works!)
  • When you are talking about your life to someone else make sure it the conversation is about what is going right and the most positive things you can think of.
  • Always remember our relationships are what we think they are and how we speak about them.


Use your powerful thoughts about everything in the positive. When you are thinking about yourself......your life.....your relationships......your career.......your family.......use only the best thoughts. When you do this not only do you lift your spirit and feel better you create more and more of the same things you think about.

Our thoughts have so much energy why not use them for the best and brightest life possible.

It is up to you how you want your thinking habit to go forward........create amazing results by changing it for the better.

Many Blessings to All

Sense of Self


Do you take the time to just find a quiet place and tune into your sense of self? Do you take the time to actually feel who you are and reach the beautiful spirit that makes you sparkle and shine?

Why wouldn’t we want to be in touch with all that we are? It gives us such a boost and a feeling of control if we practice just being.

Most of the time we are involved with thinking and worrying and projecting. This makes life about problems……. the past……and what is going to happen in the future. If we are to live life to the fullest we must let go of this thought process and adapt ourselves to being in the here and now.

When we let negative thoughts take over and control our life then we are not taking care of ourselves the way we should. Negativity is so easy to fall into yet so destructive to our well-being.

What if we grounded ourselves daily with being in the moment…….clearing our mind……..feeling the beauty of self and the force within.

Here are the steps you can take to achieve this sense of self:
  • Find a place you have complete quiet for a few moments.
  • Sit and breathe deeply in and out slowly focusing on each breath in and out.
  • Your mind will clear as you focus on your breathing and this is what you want to happen.
  • Clearing your mind and sitting breathing in and out you are most certainly in the moment.
  • Feel how free you are in mind and body.
  • Feel in the very center of you the divine feeling of your spirit.
  • Pay attention to this feeling as it is your sense of self and who you are.
  • Feel the beauty of self and feel your energy within.
  • Keep your focus on your beautiful energetic spirit for as long as you want to.
  • Breathing in and out and feeling your power you are in the moment without any other thoughts to distract you.


Isn’t it an amazing feeling to be in the moment and not allow any thoughts to intrude on your spirit so that you can feel the power of who you are.

Do this for at least 10 minutes or longer if you wish to. Being centered and feeling so connected is important because then you can be in control of thoughts you wish to have and let go of those you do not.

Why not make a habit of this during the day? You have started the day with a quiet spot and your focus within why not when thoughts tend to overtake you revert right back to that place of being in the moment and not allowing anything to take away the peaceful and joyful way it makes you feel. 

You don’t have to stop and go somewhere quiet as you do when you start the day……..just say to yourself these thoughts are not what I want for myself and take yourself within to your sense of self.

Enjoy your surroundings without any negative thoughts about it ……..just enjoy the beauty you see.

Living life does not mean being you have to be in turmoil……….it means to truly live in the moment and if those moments are those of your choosing by not allowing negative thoughts overtake you life becomes so much more satisfying……..it will change your well-being for the better when you choose to focus on your sense of self and your beautiful spirit.

Many Blessings to All
