Following a dream …


follow-your-dreamsI have been following a dream lately and find that it is in the following that blessings begin to appear.

I have in times past, given into moments of doubt when I listen to the fearful chatter in my mind about not being right, not being knowledgeable enough, not being worthy. Those days and those old dreams became a burden and it got me nothing but more questions. That path was a muddled mess.

I learned, when I wrote my book MIGHTY INSPIRATION, Love Letters from God that the promptings in our hearts are not directives, but glorious invitations. By stepping into the possibilities true inspiration turns into connections which turns into success.

And so this new dream has become a welcoming into new possibilities. I am finding support on the left and the right. I am finding my steps guided by instinct and intuition, as well as connection and happy, serendipitous timing.

Do you have a dream, that twinkling possibility of success, or blessing that is stirring inside of you? What if the mere fact that it is stirring is the sign you need that it will be a success? What if your dream is the exact thing that will bring about someone else’s dream. We are all so interconnected that the success and failure of one is part of the domino affect that leads to the success or failure of another.

Oh, I know, there is someone out in the etherworld who needs to hear this: Step out! Go for it! Inquire and take a risk. It is in our action that we tell God and the angels which path we want to be on. The universe is uniquely designed to support our actions.

Today … do one thing that is in line with your dream and tomorrow the next thing will reveal itself.

Join me and be blessed!

No More Hurting People … PEACE


11586_366544240129439_1655425686_nWith love and in memory of Martin Richard and the other victims.

Today, like everyone else who has watched the videos and read the accounts of what happened in Boston, I am feeling so many things. First, I’m grateful that my friend Marie who was running the marathon is safe and on her way back home. Second, my heart is wrenched thinking of the pain the families of the dead are feeling, and the agony the injured are enduring. And then there’s what I feel for the soul of the person(s) who did this.

I wonder what black evil touched their lives and taught them to hate. What cloud of hatred is lingering over their lives to such a degree that they sought to hurt, maim, and destroy the lives of strangers. I cannot fathom the blackness that surrounds their hearts and heads.

So I will do what I know – I will focus on the love that came from those who ran to help those who were injured. There is never enough praise for the heroes who go where most of us would flee. I appreciate the love that strangers have offered to each other – be it a restaurant owner and their staff who provided free wifi, food and a safe place to wait for friends and family. Or generous residents who opened their doors so runners and their groups could find a safe place to sleep when they couldn’t get to their hotels. And I am praying in gratefulness to the man who carried a man who lost both legs. I will pray for those who feel pain, fear, and for those involved.

And I bring it home – I will hug those who I love more tightly. I will tell those I care for that they are precious to me a bit more overtly.

Yes, the stories that are coming out of Boston are painting the picture that I already know. Americans are generous, brave, trusting, and strong in the face of adversity. It is the backbone of why we are a great nation.

As I re-read this post I know that I don’t have poignant words that will change the pain that is caused. But in expressing them I know I am adding one more drop of positive love into the universe. It is all I have.

Join me in sharing more positive words. Let us change the world with our focus on what is good and all that is love. Be blessed!

Do you see the sparkle?


“When you are strong … you sparkle.”

I don’t know who said that quote but I know it makes me smile. It speaks of the truth. Our inner strength is electric and produces a lightness or shine. Indeed, a sparkle.  Since the eyes are the windows to the soul, that is where the sparkle shows. Do you see the sparkle in eyes or the faces of these people here:

In the face of a hero risking it all

In the performer sharing their gift for the first time

In the eyes of a wounded dreamer unwilling to give up or the father who supported him

In the eyes of a champion who overcame obstacles.

The the face of a child with a new-found accomplishment

In your face when you recognize your own strength

Let us look for the sparkles … and be blessed!

Inspirational Women – original poem


Today I’ve been thinking about alot of women in my life who uplift and inspire me. I’m blessed to know so many who find joy in empowering others vs. competing with them. Then I remembered a poem that I wrote a few years back for a women’s network event I was helping to plan. I found the poem and it still rings true so I’m sharing it with you to celebrate the strong and inspirational women in your life.

Be blessed!

INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN

 I stand back and watch as you move through the rhythms of life.

You are strong but not with malice and force.

You are creative, bringing life in your actions and words.

Alone you sparkle with talent and drive.

You are every facet of what a woman is.

The music of life changes and swirls and joins us together.

We encircle each other as partners, support, and sisters in the dance of life.

Encouraging each other, we find it renews our spirits.

We are every facet of what a community is.

As powerful, inspirational women, we make success a possibility.

As your greatness shines, it reflects on mine and bounces to another.

Shoulder to shoulder we can create light where nothing now exists.

Together to build, edify, share, mentor, guide, grow, advance,

And WIN!
