No matter how dark the world may appear, the light of consciousness still exists within every soul. When wounded egos dim the light with fear it feels like we can't breathe. You have to breathe in light to dispel the darkness.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
Acts of violence and hatred are a result of fear that occurs when humans become disconnected from their souls. In their unconscious state they tend to exert false power over others to compensate for their lack of authentic power. We're experiencing a pandemic of fear that can only be eradicated by the light within that unites all of us.
You're responsible for your own light. If you allow your wounded ego to take charge, the light of your soul will be dimmed to a mere flicker. It's up to you to heal your ego of all the false beliefs it has about yourself and others....

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...
Just like a mama bear is fiercely committed to her cubs, you are being called to fiercely commit to what you hold sacred. Get clear on your highest values and take a stand for what matters to you.
“I do not believe in using women in combat, because females are too fierce.” ~ Margaret Mead
Use your fierce feminine and masculine power to speak your truth. It takes courage to stand up for your beliefs and commit to being a leader. Let your inner fierceness be a force for good in the world.
Fierceness builds strength. Just like lifting weights builds strong muscles, lifting people up develops inner strength. Commit to uplifting and inspiring others and be aware of how strong you feel.
Be fiercely committed to your health. Boost your immune system, eat organic, exercise daily, get up and move every hour, breathe deeply, get grounded, spend time in nature, bask in the sunshine, reduce stress, and get rid of toxins from your body, mind, and...

Loving yourself means paying attention to your body, mind, heart, and spirit. As you focus on each part with compassion you will naturally cultivate genuine self-love in a balanced way. When you love yourself life gets easier.
"If you aren't good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you'll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren't even giving to yourself."
~ Barbara De Angelis
Loving your body begins with self-acceptance. It needs acceptance to heal or change any parts that you've judged or rejected. When you look at your body in the mirror focus on the parts that are easy to love, then switch your focus to the parts that are harder to love, and accept them too. Your body will respond with healing and transformation.
Loving your mind starts with attention. Pay attention to how you're using your mind or if it's using you. You can develop a healthy mindset by saying...

Just like the the sun shines its light through the atmosphere and illuminates everything it touches, your spirit can shine through your body and radiate your unique brilliance. When you let your light shine you free your spirit.
“As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others.”
~ Marianne Williamson
A free spirit is someone who shines their light at all times, not just when it's convenient. A free spirit is in the flow of life and...
The order of self-validation is from spirit to soul; soul to ego; ego to body; and body to life. As you connect with these essential parts of yourself you will no longer be fooled by the illusion that you need external validation to feel good.
“When we consistently suppress and distrust our intuitive knowingness, looking instead for authority, validation, and approval from others, we give our personal power away.”
~ Shakti Gawain
A lighthouse represents your spirit that is always sending out a beacon of light for you to see...
To believe in yourself you must live with integrity. This means that the way you show up in the world is in alignment with your soul. There’s an immediate loss of self-doubt when you unleash this superpower.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful
beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”
~ Marianne Williamson
The light of your spirit will shine through when you believe in yourself and your soul is in charge of your life rather than your ego. You'll know this shift in...
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...
Spirit is like a vast ocean where the soul is a wave, and the ego is the dramatic spray trying to get all the attention. When the spray settles into the wave, and the wave re-emerges with the sea; there is profound peace.
Declare "I Am At Peace" and ponder this quote: "You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level." ~ Eckhart Tolle
Like a wave rising in the ocean, you are a unique expression of that which you are a part of. When you remember your Source and live in alignment with its power, you will experience deep inner peace. Practice meditation as a way to embody tranquility.
Resentment and judgment are habits of the ego. When your ego believes it has been mistreated it wants to hold a grudge. If it judges another's behavior the ego becomes trapped in its own limited perceptions. Let go of resentment and judgment to restore peace.
Guilt, shame, fear, and doubt make up four sides of a box...
You were born a genius. All you have to do is become available to the infinite intelligence that is running through you. Simply get out of your own way to unleash the bold genius within, and the world will open up to you.
