Eleanor Roosevelt

August 26, 2013

Someone once asked me what I regarded as the three most important requirements for happiness. My answer was: A feeling that you have been honest with yourself and those around you; a feeling that you have done the best you could both in your personal life and in your work; and the ability to Love others.

There are so many inspiring things happening in my life. Tomorrow is yet another grand opportunity to take part in a new show entitled, ‘FlaMexico!’ A savory blend of flamenco music and dance blended with the sweet tones of Mariachi Music. It will be an unforgettable evening!

May my life be one of gratitude and joy. May I never become the story of past injustices done to me or my people, but surviving and thriving despite injustices done to me and my people. May I live a life of healing and may I wake up seeing the world anew each day. May I always remember that I am taken care of, watched over and loved. May my life be a song and a memory of love when it is over.

Helen Keller ~ Security

August 16, 2013

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

Iyanla ~ Choices

August 14, 2013

What you do with what you have been given in life is entirely up to you. You are free to move in any direction you choose, at any time you like. Keep in mind that once you start the journey you can change your mind about the direction in which you want to go.

Goethe ~ Becoming

August 12, 2013

I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather.

I possess tremendous power to make a life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture, or an instrument of inspiration.

I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.

In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de –escalated, and a person humanized or dehumanized.

If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.

-Goethe

May you awaken to the mystery of being here
and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence.
May you have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.
May you receive great encouragement when new frontiers beckon.
May you respond to the call of your gift and find the courage to follow its path.
May the flame of anger free you from falsity.
May warmth of heart keep your presence aflame and may anxiety never linger about you.
May your outer dignity mirror an inner dignity of soul.
May you take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek no attention.
May you be consoled in the secret symmetry of your soul.
May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.

John O’Donohue

Spiritual Awakening

August 5, 2013

Our spiritual awakening is an unstoppable force that once awakened our lives will never be the same again. As we travel down this path we are discovering the beauty of our soul and the hidden power within that has the ability to change our lives forever. Our true purpose will be known by injecting the purist intentions into the world and sending out the highest vibration of love for everything and everyone. We must free our minds and knock down the walls of illusion that have distorted the perception of our Divine paths. It’s not about finding yourself, it’s about remembering who you have always been.

Appreciation

August 2, 2013

Appreciation is the vibration of alignment with who-you-are. Appreciation is the absence of everything that feels bad and the presence of everything that feels good. When you focus upon what you want – when you tell the story of how you want your life to be – you will come closer and closer to the vicinity of appreciation, and when you reach it, it will pull you toward all things that you consider to be good in a very powerful way.

Raising Vibrations

July 31, 2013

Too often we believe because someone is family or a close friend that we have to hang in there, allowing them to dump their anger, self-centeredness, and emotional unconsciousness onto us. We feel this is how we love them. That it is our duty not to rock the boat.

Wrong! Over the course of my life I have set countless boundaries with family and friends. I learned that loving another person is not about allowing them to abuse us. Love always seeks to bring a higher, wiser level of awareness than what created the negative situation in the first place. Yes, it is challenging because boundaries shine a light on wounded, negative dynamics. But to love both ourselves and other people we must accept the truth that if we do not establish limits then we are enabling those who treat us badly to continue to do so.

Our families are intended to be an important area of safety, support and love. Families are the first area in which we need to set and maintain healthy boundaries. If we do not then we are teaching our children that mistreatment, disrespect, and even abuse are okay. And none of these is ever love.
