Success dwells in a state of worthiness. You might gain worldly success but without the belief that you are worthy you'll either find a way to sabotage it or you won't enjoy it. Reach for your worthiness, it will lead to lasting success.
“When you get to a place where you understand that love and belonging, your worthiness, is a birthright and not something you have to earn, anything is possible.” ~ Brene Brown
Physical success is knowing that you're worthy of having perfect health. You don't need to buy into the medical model of your health declining with age. Choose your own model of becoming healthier with age. With age comes wisdom, with wisdom comes patience, with patience comes wholeness.
Mental success means standing in your worthiness as you express your creativity in ways that uplift your soul. It matters less what other people think of your creative expression and more what you think of it.
Emotional success is having enough self-worth to...
The journey from the head to the heart will transform your life. It reconnects you to a divine state of unconditional love where your innocence is alive and well. When you extend this pure love to others their lives will be transformed.
“Loneliness is proof that your innate search for connection is intact.” ~ Martha Beck
Reconnect with your body by seeing it through the eyes of love. Find out what your body needs to return to its natural state of balance and provide it. Give your body the love and appreciation it deserves for its ability to heal itself with the right support.
Reconnect with unconditional love by giving it to yourself first. Appreciating and accepting who you are without conditions is good practice for loving others unconditionally. You can't give what you don't already have.
Reconnect with the earth as a source of abundance. It provides everything you need to thrive from oxygen, water, fruits and veggies to herbs, oils and...
You're on the right track when you're being pulled toward a vision for your life. Even if you're the only one who can see the light at the end of the tunnel you can trust your intuition to keep guiding you in the right direction.
"Unfortunately, some of our poor choices are irreversible, but many are not. Often, we can change course and get back on the right track". ~ James E. Faust
Being on the right track means allowing your life to unfold. Making things happen or forcing yourself to get ahead may cause an unpleasant derailment. Set a course for where you want to go and the right track will appear.
You're either on a track of love or a track of fear. You'll know if you're on the track of love by the way that you feel. Love brings with it all of your good feelings and emotions to let you know you're on the right track.
Your train of thought determines the track you're on. Uplifting thoughts set you on a smooth track; degrading thoughts put...

The soul is pure love living in a state of joy. You'll know that you're connected with your higher self when you're feeling good. Embody your childlike goodness by staying connected to your soul and it will always guide you to the best course of action.
“Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.” ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
The voice of your soul is intuition; your body is its physical form; your emotions are its language; your mind is its instrument; and your ego is its companion. Connect with your soul on every level and it will guide you to your highest good.
One way to hear the intuitive voice of your soul is to invite it to speak to you through the written word. You can sit quietly, take several deep breaths to calm your nervous system, and then write your soul a question. Continue journaling whatever comes through as an answer.
Your body is the physical...
Compassion is love in action. It bubbles up from the heart until it pours outward through acts of kindness and forgiveness. It's like a fountain of love that keeps giving from an everlasting spring of joy.
“One day I looked at something in myself that I had been avoiding because it was too painful. Yet once I did, I had an unexpected surprise. Rather than self-hatred, I was flooded with compassion for myself because I realized the pain necessary to develop that coping mechanism to begin with.” ~ Marianne Williamson
To cultivate compassion it's important to start with yourself. You can start by standing up to your inner critic and letting it know that from now on you're going to be giving yourself a daily dose of compassion rather than a frequent shot of criticism for your human imperfections.
Your intuition will always guide you to give the most compassionate response. When you realize that you're in a reactive mode,...
The ego builds a comfort zone to feel safe and survive. When you trust your soul to be your guide you'll feel safe to go beyond your comfort zone and thrive. This is how you reach your full potential.
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” ~ Neale Donald Walsch
Your body is a physical manifestation of your comfort zone, and it's doing its best to help you survive. If you're experiencing any discomfort in your body this is one way your soul is urging you to make some changes. To get out of this comfort zone it's useful to determine the emotional issues beneath the physical symptoms and clear them out of your body to support healing.
Living in a comfort zone is the realm of status quo where no real growth can occur. If you're not growing . . . you're dying. Choose to grow, then trust your intuition to lead the way and the Universe will support every step you take towards expansion.
The wisdom of getting out of your comfort zone comes from the...
Your hero's journey begins with a call to adventure. The hero of your story is your own soul and the part of you that needs rescuing is your wounded ego. The journey is about waking up to the freedom of a heart-centered life.
“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” ~ Joseph Campbell
The call to adventure takes you from an ordinary life to one that is extraordinary. You may choose to refuse the call at first because your ego is reluctant to go outside of its comfort zone. When you've developed the courage you need you'll feel compelled to answer the call.
Once you commit to the adventure the transformation begins when you meet your mentor. A mentor is someone who believes in you and will help you build your confidence by preparing you physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually for the journey ahead.
There will be challenges along the way. If you see these challenges as...
Your body is rooted in the earth. This is where you will find an infinite supply of life force. If you become unbalanced or depleted your body will experience symptoms. As you naturally increase the flow of life force energy these internal messages are free to go.
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.”
~ Martha Graham
Mother Earth is an abundant source of life force. Make time each day to connect with her and fill yourself up. This can be done by standing barefoot on the ground and breathing in life force through the soles of your feet. As you breathe out release disappointment; a chronic energy drain. As you fill yourself up with each breath be aware of all the areas of your life where you're already deeply fulfilled.
Allow your intuition to guide you to safety. This is the quiet voice or feeling that...

The past may leave a trail behind you but it doesn't have the power to create a path in front of you. Although it causes a ripple effect made of life experiences, they have all been for your soul's highest good and evolution. Keep moving forward in the direction of enlightenment.
“Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.” ~ Denis Waitley
However you choose to move your body throughout the day, set an intention that with each forward step you take you are leaving the past behind and fully entering the present moment. This will help your body let go of any physical discomfort it may be carrying related to the past.
When others judge you, or you judge yourself, for what you did in the past it's helpful to remember that you're not defined by your past experiences; it's who you become as a result of what you've been through that...
Surrendering control isn't giving up, it's opening up. It means living in a state of grace by letting go of your attachment to outcome and becoming a co-creator with the universe. Imagine raising your sails and allowing the wind to move you.
“Always say 'yes' to the present moment... Surrender to what is. Say 'yes' to life - and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
The ego has very little patience. For instance, if you were to decide that you wanted to get in shape it might take on the role of drill sergeant to get the job done quickly. If your body didn't respond well to this approach you might give up on that goal and move on to the next. Surrendering control allows you to accept where your body is and honor it with the respect it deserves to keep moving in the direction of your fitness goals.
Whenever you embark on a creative project it's important to...
