The Power of a Spiritual Practice


I used to think that anyone who said they had a spiritual practice was someone chanting on mala beads while doing a one handed arm balance…

 Now, I have found a daily grounding practice to be extremely important commitment to live an awakened life.  As we start proving the ego wrong and stepping into love and our wholeness, our ego minds can get louder and louder in opposition.  Finding your own spiritual practice is helpful in connecting and quieting the mind, even if its just for a few minutes each day.

Love pairs greatly with forgiveness

love pairs greatly

I believe that we were born with a clear love channel, and we are at any given time free to return there. Experience of the past has enabled a murky & confusing channel or a channel of conditions. This is why we feel the need to have the distinction  of”unconditional love” love is pure without condition.

So what tools can we utilize to return to a clear channel of love?

Please forgive me
I’m sorry
Thank you
I love you

Repeating these four phrases as many times as you need to. I love you and thank you will allow for a grounding in gratitude and are essential.

Gratitude THRIVE

Sustainability of Transformation:
The Gratitude Thrive program is designed to support graduates of Part 1, Part 2 & Masterful Living in staying connected to the community and having the coaching tools available and accessible through the work of transformation.

Let’s face it! Although the Gratitude Training, due to the experiential nature of the program, is far more sustainable than many other workshops out there, the drift is still strong. Any time we take ourselves to a new level in any area, there is always the possibility of slipping into old ways and the ego can get the better of us. Life continuously brings us new challenges. Those challenges demand that we reinvent and redesign ourselves in order to succeed. Gratitude Thrive is designed to support you on this journey.

5 Keys to Creating Relationships that Work

Romantic Couple at SunsetFor those of us who endeavor to create long-lasting, successful, committed relationships; we know that they certainly can have their ups and downs. Success in a relationship, to me, is defined not only by the couple remaining together but by a continued deepening of intimacy and trust, and through the creation of a safe space of authentic expression for both partners. By that definition of success, having tools and practices that work is not only desirable but necessary. Here are a few things that I’ve learned to really support couples in winning.

1. Actively Sharing and Listening:

People, especially in an intimate partnership want to be heard and know that their feelings and opinions are valid and valuable to their partner. Although this is probably an obvious truth to anybody who considers it, the practical application of it, in relationship, is not always easy.

Surrender Is My Friend


One of my best friend’s ex-husband, Dan, died recently. Friday, January 6th, King’s Day. What a weird way to start a sentence…best friend’s ex-husband! Why not just say, my friend, Dan? Well, that’s a blog for another day!

Dan was an amazing man:  giving, compassionate, caring, thoughtful, a true altruist.  He was only 60 and left behind two children, my god-children, Ivy 16, and Henry 14. I’ve known Dan for almost 20 years. His passing leaves me with a bit of sadness, mindfulness of my importance in others’ lives, and acute cognizance of my own mortality.

I became a mom of two amazing girls in the last two years, probably adding number three later this year, and married the love of my life almost three years ago. My life is full! I experience bliss, joy, child-like wonder, and innocence daily.
