If every cloud has a silver lining it stands to reason that every challenge comes with the inspiration to be brilliant. Look for the beauty in everything to feel inspired by life. Beauty inspires the experience of love.
“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Inspire literally means to breathe in. Use your breath to connect with the beauty that is all around you and fill yourself up with inspiration. Notice the love you feel whenever you see something beautiful.
The beauty of nature is in the air you breathe, the water you drink, the healthy food you eat, and the sun that illuminates all life on planet earth. Spend time outdoors as often as possible and breathe in natural beauty to get inspired.
Being kind and compassionate will inspire others to do the same. An act of kindness creates an energetic bond between the giver and receiver that...

A significant part of the human experience is to find joy through movement. Your body needs to move to be healthy; your mind must be moved to create; your heart feels emotions that need to move through you to feel good; and your spirit moves you with divine inspiration.
"Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person's physical, emotional, and mental states." ~ Carol Welch
One way I have found joy is through playing tennis. Even spraining my ankle and falling on the court during a match led me to create a more balanced way of living. The joy of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual movement has fueled both my personal and professional life for over thirty years. Discover the kind of movement that brings you joy and see where it leads you.
From the time you learned to crawl your body loved to move. At different stages of your life you may have been very active and at other times more sedentary. Find joy through...

When parts of yourself become frozen in fear there is no forward movement. Thawing occurs when you remember your innate worthiness. Allow divine inspiration to flow through you like a river and it will take you to your best life.
“No one was ever great without some portion of divine inspiration.” ~ Cicero
Worthiness is your birthright and divine inspiration is yours for the asking. You're like a radio that is always plugged into its source. You simply have to turn the radio on and tune into the right frequency, and then listen.
Identify the fears that keep you stuck. You can do this by completing the following sentence several times: If I weren't afraid I would . . . . It's helpful to write this out in a journal or notebook to help you get unstuck.
Inspire literally means to breathe in. When you want to receive divine inspiration it's helpful to breathe deeply while you're asking. You can ask for...
Love is on the other side of fear. Past fear causes depression, and future fear is called anxiety. Let go of your past and future fears while centered in your heart, and return to love in the present moment.
Declare “I Am Letting Go of Fear” and find your balance.
Fear has a way of putting up walls around your heart. Fear of rejection, abandonment, failure, and judgment can stop you from going for it and living your dreams. Let go of fear and tear down the imaginary barriers to wholehearted living.
FEAR is an acronym for ‘False Expectations Appearing Real.’ Drop your false expectations and replace them with Love. LOVE stands for ‘Living On Vital Energy.’ Fear is only useful when it steers you away from danger and keeps you safe.
The most important journey you’ll ever take is from your head to your heart. The ego can paralyze you with all its fear-based beliefs. Your soul will uplift you with its love-centered wisdom. Make a list...
Determination creates breakthroughs. It’s the unstoppable drive to keep going even if life knocks you down. When you see challenges through the eye of the tiger, a fierce confidence rises up from deep inside you.
Use the mantra “I Am Determined” and take the next bold step.
Remember that unforgettable theme song from Rocky? It’s Eye of the Tiger . The lyrics are about rising up to the challenge no matter how many times you get knocked down. Play this song anytime you need a shot of determination.
The tiger represents the power to overcome obstacles. Whenever you face an obstacle in your life you can embody the energy of a tiger to get over, around or through whatever appears to be blocking your way. Lack of success in any endeavor is directly related to lack of determination.
The procrastination creed is: Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow? The determination creed is: Why put off until tomorrow what you can do today?...
Intentions connect you with the creative power of the universe. The simple act of getting clear and living in the feeling of already having what you desire, allows it to show up. Setting an intention gets you on course before taking flight.
Declare “I Am Setting Intentions” and then do so.
You may have heard that the road to hell is paved with good intentions; that means without follow-through there may be some regret that causes a hellish kind of mental suffering.
Writing your intentions is a creative note to the universe. It’s the act of getting clear and asking for what you want. Adding images to the written word will enhance your vision and help you get to the feeling.
Health is wealth. Set the intention to start investing in your health today, and you will see the return on your investment for the rest of your life.
Are you doing work that you love? If not, set an intention to love what you do or change what you’re doing to align with this...
Einstein said: “There are only two ways to live your life: as though nothing is a miracle, or as though everything is a miracle.” By living in a state of positive expectation you will see everything as a miracle
Use the mantra “I Am Seeing Miracles” as a reminder that life is a miracle.
Get outdoors and connect with nature. Ask for a sign that you’re on the right track, and be open to receiving a message; you might see an angel cloud formation or another kind of meaningful sign.
Send love and light to people and places who need it. Imagine surrounding them, and their homes, in a protective bubble of white light. Express gratitude for the miracle of divine protection.
Take a few moments to look in a mirror and gaze deeply into your eyes. Appreciate the miracle of sight and all the beauty it allows you to see on a daily basis.
Play your favorite music and turn up the volume. Allow the sound to enter your ears and fill every cell of your body with its...
I Am Living in Grace Photo by Christy Gutzeit
Grace naturally abounds in moments of inner peace and blissful harmony. It manifests in the physical world as spontaneous right action, synchronicity, and joyful living. Being born into a state of grace is my original blessing.
Declare “I Am Living in Grace” and be aware of synchronicity.
You are in grace when you are in balance. A state of balance is primarily relying on your own body, mind, heart and spirit for love, support, and spiritual guidance. Download my free report here: 8 Steps to Radical Self-Reliance: A Path to Personal Freedom
Your ego will oppose the ease of living in grace because it wants to be in charge, and have control over your life. It is the part of your mind that lives in fear,...
I Am Ending a Cycle
The full moon represents the completion of a cycle. It’s a time when the truth becomes illuminated to bring about internal shifts and changes. I shift my consciousness from fear to love and awaken my full potential.
Declare “I Am Ending a Cycle” as you gaze at the full moon.
Would you like to end a cycle of stress, worry, fear or doubt? Step outside tonight and allow the moon to help you clarify what is holding you back, and then let it go.
Your ego will help you survive, and your soul will help you thrive. Which one do you want to be in charge of your life? If you choose to end the cycle of an ego-driven life your soul-directed life will naturally emerge.
If you’ve been in a cycle of expecting what you don’t want, change your expectations to align with what you do want. You often get what you expect.
Do you have a fear of failure or a fear of success? Love being successful on your own terms and watch the fear melt away. Remember,...
