On the twelfth day of Christmas I gave to the world, all of me – a law of attraction primer on moving from materialism to spiritualism

The feelings of shame as a child are still written in my memory; though I can look at them now with a fond smile.   I was always told to tone down my energy; to be careful not to over-whelm others.   After many years of trying to tone things down, I started on the road to becoming an inspirational speaker.   The [...]

On the tenth day of Christmas I gave to the world, the gift of my passion – a law of attraction primer on moving from materialism to spiritualism

Christina loves to fly.   When I think of the word passion, I think of her.   Ask her to describe what heaven is like, and she’ll talk about life at 10,000 feet!  Like many pilots struggling to gain the air time required to work as a pilot, she has given up every luxury in her life to pursue her passion. When [...]

Jack was feeling sad.  He knew you were suppose to be happy Christmas week, but the new skis his Dad had given him weren’t cheering him up.  They were top of the line.  His Dad was a Vice President in a Marketing Firm, so he could afford the best.  Jack was sitting at home wondering if his Dad would ever [...]

On the seventh day of Christmas I gave to the world, the gift of compassion, – a law of attraction primer on moving from materialism to spiritualism

It had been a tough year for me, my father died and my marriage fell apart.  So my thoughts were often turned inward at my own anguish.  I remember standing frozen in the check-out line.

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me, the gift of honesty.

Everyone cringed when Tom was coming near. They worried they’d be trapped. He’d talk on about everything happening in his life or ask advice about his problems. He seldom showed any interest in others. Sound familiar? I was giving a talk one day about strengthening relationships and Tom approached me after to tell me my suggestions had never worked for [...]

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me, the gift of empowering thoughts – a law of attraction primer on moving from materialism to spiritualism

The biggest challenge for me this year has been mastery over my own thoughts.   When I first decided that my dream was to raise money, in trust for schools in developing countries, I first conceptualized it as something I would do "someday" when I retired.   But as I let myself sink deeper into trust for the Universe I realized the [...]

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me, belief in myself – a law of attraction primer on moving from materialism to spiritualism

It is interesting how often in life we have trouble believing in those we most love.  Familiarity can lead to indifference.   Then, when we look at our reflection in  those closest to us, we see indifference.  Yet what if the opposite is true?  What if we are all, in fact, exceptional?   What if all we need is belief in ourselves [...]
