How much are you willing to do? May 1, 2012

What it may look like.... I just see it!

Last thursday was a spectacular spring day here on the east coast and I spent my early morning driving around with a friend going to tag sales!  Such a fun adventure and as we drove past a house in much need of some love he saw a VW Karmann Ghia hidden way in the back of the property in a shed.  It too was in much need of some  love.  That said what he did is rather inspiring… He wanted to go and ask the owner about it and see if it was for sale!  So we drove down the drive way and got out and knocked on the door… I have to admit the excitement was rising in my tummy… I loved it! And before you say it, Yes it was very American Pickers of us and Mike and Frank would approve.  So my friend asked about it, looked closely at it, crawled on the ground with the years of dirt, examined the engine which had seized up due to years of not being driven….. All this got me thinking… How many people would be willing to get out of their car and go up to a complete strangers door in order to follow their desire, want or goal?  How many people would be willing to follow-up with calls and offers and be consumed with that one desire of acquiring their pot of gold?

Now in this story there are myriad lessons to learn but I am going to focus on just 1 today. And the question is this… How much are you willing to do in order to reach your goal? How hard are you willing to work AND just how big of a risk are you willing to take in order to reach the proverbial Emerald City? Now I often ask my clients Do you believe you are doing everything possible to complete your goal.  Which in turn, they say yes but when we get down to it they have not done everything in their power.

So much about achieving a goal is knowing that you deserve it! Completely, Utterly Deserve it! There is enough for us all to have our own piece of the pie, No matter how big a slice! Hence you deserve to work as hard as humanly possible in order to acquire it!  It makes the end result all the more sweet.  We so often stop half way through for one reason or the other… we all have done it. We make our steps towards our goal to big so we get discouraged.  Our baby steps are forgotten.  But what would happen if you kept focused on what ever your goal is so much so that there was only one thing that happened… Success.  Creating smart goals to move forward.  You know the old adage, “If at first you don’t succeed try and try again!” Now I know there are people who need to learn to actually let things go but for the most part, people lose focus or energy or… you fill in the blank, half way through.  Oh to have the energy of a teenager! You’d be unstoppable! So by creating achievable goals and not loosing focus anything is possible!

So I got excited when my friend not only stopped at a strangers house but followed up with phone calls…. Soon that beautiful Karmann Ghia will receive the love that it deserves!  I just see it!

Each day is a gift! April 22, 2012

©Sarah Hamilton

Each day is a gift… Right now is all we will ever have.  We all know the expression, “The past is history, the future is a mystery and now is a gift.  That’s why it is called the present!”  How are you going to embrace the moment?  Valuing the moment in whatever guise it shows up to you is not always easy… But if we look at it in just 3 ways we can.

When you’re in the moment you can accept it, enjoy it or be enthusiastic about it.  These 3 states of being I learned from Eckart Tolle and they really shifted my reality.  The alternatives simply create struggle…  Let’s just say someone is yelling at you… Do you want to fight or defend yourself?  All of that creates struggle… By allowing them their “stuff” and knowing the Truth about who you are leads to the acceptance of  what is happening and you can walk away with out harm and ill feelings. Then there is the enjoyment of the moment which we all can choose at any moment in time but my favorite is the Enthusiasm of the moment!

I made a choice with my life a long time ago not to struggle with time, space or people.  It has taken a lot of work for me to get here… people, health diagnoses and the simple choice of wanting something better. The idea that if we struggle or fight with a given thing or situation that is all we will ever have.  What do you want?  What kind of quality of life do you choose? And, the big one… How willing are you to do the work that it takes to let go of the all the stuff?

Our lives truly are gift of spectacular opportunity.  What are you going to do with it!


So much Love and Pink Light today!

Walking the Talk… March 14, 2012

On the Beach

© Joe Snow

I’m regularly conscious of “walking the talk”.  I chose to live in integrity but that said it isn’t always that easy. Like everyone I can get caught up in life and what it’s can bring.  Also when I  say one thing and do another it seems inauthentic to me. Like I say that I have meditated for 25 years yet I know that for the last week I didn’t sit at all.  My buttons get pushed like anyone.

So the question is what do I do when I’m challenged? Take my time… stay in the moment. Breathe. I ultimately ask myself what am I frightened of so that I can let it go and then stand in my Truth.  I allow the feelings to be what they are so that I can see if they are really true or just my mind working over time.  Byron Katie has a wonderful series of questions to ask yourself so that you can shift out of these catabolic thoughts.  I believe my reason for being on the planet is to learn to be as unconditionally loving not only to others but to myself as well.  Because if we do we learn to set healthy boundaries all around.  I also believe that there is no end to what we do and how we live… there is no finish line so what’s the rush?

Take your time… breathe… and know that there’s no rush in an authentic life.  Hence what we say and do are 2 very similar actions!


Are you walking your talk?

Staying in the Moment… February 26, 2012

As I wrote the other day the 2 main contributors to a relationships success are when you love yourself unconditionally and when you have the ability to stay in the moment.  These are the 2 main relationship issues that can catch us up, if they are not being acknowledged . When you notice that you are stuck in an unhealthy pattern, it tends to be one or both of my 2 theories that aren’t being acknowledged. So then you can ask yourself, if any of the “10 Steps” (explained in my up coming e-book) aren’t being observed. So then you can come back to love and step away from fear and breathe into the moment.

Through your breath and centering you can instantly bring yourself back into the “now” but fear immediately takes us out of it.  When we get ahead of ourselves we can’t stay present with our partner. And if we haven’t made peace with the past or fear the future we bring ALL of it into the room and relationship with us. Learn to be objectively detached and how to stay out of your partners “emotional stuff”. Staying objectively attached means, not jumping into what they’re feeling and staying with your own. Know that what your partner is feeling has nothing to do with you… Which means that the origin of the pain supersedes you at this moment. “When you realize that what you react to in others is also in you (and sometimes only in you) you begin to become aware of your own ego. At that stage, you may also realize that you were doing to others what you thought others were doing to you. You cease seeing yourself as a victim.”Eckhart Tolle This is made easier when you see your partner through your place of non-judgment.

I know that this can be easier said than done but it’s truly amazing how much a deep cleansing breath can aid us in this opportunity!

Attracting a man or a woman… January 31, 2012

I regularly talk to my clients about what it means to attract a man or a woman… What kind of attraction do they want or for that fact what kind of a human do they want.  I mean I could be glib and say to a woman, “A good push up bra! Since men are so visual!”  But I’m not glib and not all men like big boobs…. I think.  Or I could say to a man, “Work on your butt! Since most woman like a nice bum.”  But again… not glib.  In all honesty the Most attractive person is the one who loves themselves and exudes a serene sense of confidence.  Confidence is the best make-up or cologne any person could wear.  This is why I say a true love for ones self can do this.  It is not a false bravado or arrogance but a calm kindness towards self.  Looking within is the only place to go to see your true beauty and not going for the outer and superficial idea of what’s attractive.


So what can you do to bolster your sense of self love?  What do you so to feel confident? What helps you feel strong… on the inside?

The Sign of Insanity… January 29, 2012

You know how they say the first sign of insanity is when you keep doing the same thing over and over again but expect a different outcome each time? Well I wonder how one can do something differently if they don’t know what the problem is.  Awareness is different for everyone.  It can take the form of seeing the problem and making sustainable change to seeing the problem and being paralyzed and not knowing where to go.  That said there is also the category that doesn’t even see the problem but knows that their life isn’t what they would want.  Acknowledging the, bump in the road (I’m not a fan of calling things problems… they’re just an opportunity for growth) isn’t as easy as it may seem.  There’s a lot of fear tied up in seeing a “problem”.  “How am I not showing up?” is not always a comfortable question.  It connotes failure and our society doesn’t always look kindly on “failure”.  So what would happen if you were to look at this situation as an opportunity verses an obsticle.  Often times people don’t look within for fear of what they might find.  But again how can you frame that differently…. Such as: “I’m going to be alone for the rest of my life!” Instead you think” I’m being giving the opportunity to create lifelong lasting friendships!” ?? Fear is at the base of all catabolic (unhealthy) thought So the main question would be, How can you be more loving to yourself when these thoughts come up?  Also if you don’t even see that the catabolic though is even a detriment to your quality of life that too can have repercussions.  I understand that these feelings come up for Everyone but it is how you shift out of them that is the beauty of it all!!

10 Steps to a Healthy Relationship! January 6, 2012

I have been organizing a Free Tele-Seminar, “10 Steps to a Healthy Relationship!”.  I’m getting excited the closer I get to the date!  The sharing of time with loving people to expand their already innate knowledge.  We all have arrived on this planet with everything we need to be the most unconditionally loving people we can be.  And to constantly continue are path to further expansion and knowledge is an exciting idea to me. People coming together to share in a collective idea based in Love really makes me kvell!

I have organized 10 steps triggered by my 3 focal points.  My favorite of which is: “Continue to foster the love for yourself.  For when you can love yourself, flaws and all you can love your partner more completely for who they are.”  And I really mean ALL your flaws… Think about it How often do you look in the mirror and “pick” at yourself? For that fact look at others and pick at them?  By being as gentle as you can, this helps to facillitate internal and external love. Also we  all get wrapped up in the daily rig-a-ma-roll that we sometimes forget to care for ourselves… and in turn our partner.  What can you do to care for yourself? To take time….? To breathe..

I look forward to talking with you all!

Starting the Year Off on the Right Foot? January 3, 2012

We as humans even if we dont’ mean to do it we end one year and start the next year thinking about our resolutions and what we want to do to start fresh.  As Life Coaches we monopolize on this.  You’ll here “It’s time to get Healthy’ or “It’s time to make that change!” It is the fresh resurgence of new clients after the 1st of the year.  Now I, like the best of them , love this beginning of newness.  But I wonder what would happen if you the client made it an ongoing process instead of the fast starts and quick completions.  Or are you even completing? We are constantly a work in progress and glorious being.  We didn’t do anything “wrong ” the previous year for us not to have reached fulfillment.  It takes baby steps to start anything new.  Why don’t we simply love ourselves Just The Way We Are? And be ok if something doesn’t shift over night.  If you think about it never does.  The Universe is constantly conspiring on our behalf and working when we you least expect it.
