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...

During these unprecedented times it's helpful to have faith in the wisdom of uncertainty. The future is unknown, and yet we still believe that the sun will set this evening and will rise again tomorrow morning.
“None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have Faith.” ~ Paulo Coelho
Even though you cannot see the sunrise at night you know that it will be back in the morning to light up the whole sky. This kind of faith will help you remain calm and hopeful during challenging times.
Create a morning and evening ritual of connecting with the sunrise and sunset. Appreciate the rising and setting sun and it will strengthen your faith in the universe. This connection will activate your parasympathetic nervous system and help you feel centered and peaceful.
The future holds infinite possibilities. When you know that you're a co-creator with the universe...
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...
Get outdoors today and connect with nature. Nature calms your nervous system and opens your mind to your soul’s wisdom and guidance. Come to your senses by paying attention to what you see, hear, taste, touch and smell. Engage your sixth sense as well by quieting your mind and listening to your intuition. One of the best ways to quiet the chatter of the mind is to become fully present with your body in the moment.
If you can’t get outdoors, here’s a guided meditation to connect with nature:
After connecting with nature, write in a journal any new insights or ideas that you received. Feel free to also email me at: [email protected].
Enjoy Wisdom Wednesday!
When following your North Star it's best to look forward to keep moving onward and upward. Looking backward will keep you stuck in a past that has already been traveled. Trust the wisdom of the Universe to help you navigate the journey that lies ahead.
“The way to find your own North Star is not to think or feel your way forward but to dissolve the thoughts and feeling that make you miserable. You don't have to learn your destiny—you already know it; you just have to unlearn the thoughts that blind you to what you know.”
Imagine two wolves inside of you trying to get your attention. One wolf is hiding in the shadows, afraid to step into the light. The other is standing boldly in the moonlight, fully present to the mystery of life. It’s up to you to choose where your attention goes.
“In any given moment, we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety.” ~ Abraham Maslow
Wolf represents the energy of teacher. When you're learning to choose love over fear the image of two wolves wanting your attention can remind you that where your attention goes, energy flows. You are are either giving your precious energy to fear or love, and that is the direction you will go.
Wolves are known for their independence, loyalty, and being aligned with the moon. The moon is symbolic of the wisdom held within your feminine, receptive nature. The new moon is the perfect time to tap into your inner wisdom and declare soul intentions. ...
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.
Choice comes from a place of love or fear. Wisdom is born out of love, and foolishness is a product of fear. Showing up for love is choosing your true self that already knows how to make wise choices.
Declare “I Am Making Wise Choices” and reflect on this quote by Oprah Winfrey: “I believe every single event in life that happens is an opportunity to choose love over fear."
An owl represents wisdom, intuition and change. When it shows up in your life either in a photo or nature, it’s reminding you to make wise choices by trusting your intuition.
Love chooses to tell the best story about your life by turning challenges into victories. Fear chooses to tell the worst story about everything that’s happened to you by playing the victim. You reclaim your power every time you tell your story from the perspective of love.
Fear has a way of disguising itself as love. Pleasing others might appear to be loving but it often comes at the...
