Life is a balancing act between power and wisdom. Your masculine side holds the power and your feminine side delivers the wisdom. When your inner wisdom directs your personal power, you naturally live a more balanced, fulfilling life.
“Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.”
~ Thomas Merton
Your body and mind are the power sources that energize your life. Your heart and spirit are the sources of wisdom that provide inner peace. The way you balance your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energy depends on daily habits.
Get in the habit of increasing your life force energy by taking good care of your body. Self-care is the kind of self-love that enhances every aspect of your health. Practice deep breathing throughout the day as a way to lower stress and stay balanced in your body.
Develop the habit of increasing creative energy by focusing your mind on what...

When you find yourself in emotional waters the first thing to do is get centered in your heart. Returning to your center allows you to naturally accept whatever is happening with grace and ease. Your heart brings the being to human being.
“A mind at peace, a mind centered and not focused on harming others, is stronger than any physical force in the universe.” ~ Wayne Dyer
As a human you identify with your body and mind. As a being you identify with your soul and spirit. The value in bringing these identities together is to give your soul the best human experience. To feel centered remember that you're both physical and non-physical and your heart center is the bridge between heaven and earth.
Being centered brings you into the present. In each moment you are free to observe the world around you without judgment. Off-center thinking is more focused on the past and future. This type of thinking usually comes with blame...

Emotions are rooted in your body as a way to receive messages from your soul. Thoughts aligned with love generate pleasant emotions; fearful thoughts have the opposite effect. Become the master of your emotions to live in harmony.
“Strong emotions such as passion and bliss are indications that you're connected to Spirit, or 'inspired,' if you will. When you're inspired, you activate dormant forces, and the abundance you seek in any form comes streaming into your life.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Life is like a block of clay. You get to mold it into form using your beliefs, thoughts, words, and actions. Love is creation. Fear is distraction. If you experience reality from a fear-based perspective you'll be distracted from living your best life. Experiencing reality from a heart-centered perspective inspires you to create a life of joy and fulfillment.
Emotions are neither good or bad; they're useful. All of your positive,...
Love is the power of your soul. Light is the wisdom of your spirit. These two enormous forces of nature supply you with the Infinite Intelligence you need to miraculously shape your life in magnificent ways.
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” - Lao-Tzu
Polar bears represent the strength to thrive in any environment and the courage to know how to use their own power. Embody these qualities by having the strength to overcome challenges and the courage to do it with the power of love.
Love is the fuel that powers an extraordinary life. There is an endless supply in the universe and sharing love causes it to multiply, making it your greatest superpower. Light ignites the power of love with the wisdom of your spirit. It allows you to see beyond the human form that separates us to honor the formless light that unites us as one.
Infinite Intelligence is your birthright. The way it gets...
Self-awareness is paying attention to your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It's taking a step back long enough to notice what life is bringing up for you. You get to know your true self without all the stories running amok in your head.
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
A horse represents the driving force that carries you through life. When you're tapped into the power within you live with unbridled passion. Set yourself free and see where it takes you.
When you're faced with a challenging situation rather than asking why it's happening, ask what you need to get through it. This will keep you engaged in the present moment where you need to focus your energy.
Self-awareness requires being honest with yourself. Change happens naturally once you're aware of what needs to change. It isn't helpful to judge yourself; simply be willing to change.
Authentic power comes from the light of your soul. When you allow the words or actions of others to dim your light, you've given your power away. Reclaim your power by standing in your brilliance.
"You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength." ~ Marcus Aurelius
Like a tree needs nourishment from its roots to thrive, so do you. Plug into your purpose in life as a power source. When you know why you're here and live in the light of universal consciousness, you'll be aligned with your higher purpose.
True power is a light that cannot be extinguished. The eternal flame of your soul is always with you. Trust in the divine energy that illuminates your way and you will be on the right path. Pay attention to your intuitive voice, and be aware of signs from the universe that you're headed in the right direction.
Imagine crossing a bridge that takes you from fear to love. On the side of fear is where all of your limiting beliefs exist; on the side of love is where you wake up, transcend fear, step into your power, and become your authentic self.
Declare “I Am Transcending Fear” and reflect on these words from Aristotle: “He who has overcome his fears will truly be free.
Crossing the bridge from fear to love takes courage. It requires examining the fear (False Expectations Appearing Real) that has kept you on its side, and deciding if you want to stay there. Complete this sentence a few times: If I wasn’t afraid I would . . .
Fear of the unknown is actually fear of bringing the unpleasant parts of your past into your future. You can love the unknown by seeing it as a clean slate to create something brand new. It’s an opportunity to learn from the past by seeing where you got it wrong, and now you have a chance to get it right.
The evergreen tree represents the stamina needed to get through the winter. It symbolizes the same kind of endurance it takes to be a peacemaker in a troubled world. The noble evergreen signifies the power of peace and perseverance.
Declare “I Am a Peacemaker” and make peace a priority in your life.
World peace is the result of global inner peace. You are responsible for the energy you bring into the world; make sure its the peaceful kind.
Your life is your message. Do you want to use your life to be about conflict or peace?
Anger means something needs to stop. If it’s something you need to stop thinking, do so. If it’s something you need to stop doing, then you have the power to end the behavior. If it’s something you want someone else to stop, you may need to let go of trying to control another person.
Being a people pleaser and a peacemaker are two very different roles. One is out of fear of disappointing people and the other is out of...
