Setting your Vibrational Tone

16-Jun-2014

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you’ve asked for something so strongly, with so much faith, only to receive nothing, or perhaps something entirely different from what you asked for? Well, I have, and let me tell, it wasn’t pretty. I got mad and I asked myself, ‘What went wrong? Why didn’t I get what I asked for? Why hadn’t my manifestation come true?’

A Reminder To Love & Know Self

03-Jun-2014

The intention behind this piece is a reminder to know self. If we are in a place of suffering, it is a result not of our surroundings but rather our perception of our surroundings. This is a reminder to reflect and ask about the choices we make in perceiving our situation. If we can pause and reflect, on how we are looking at ourselves in the situation, we may find that we compare ourselves to the lives of others. Anytime I scroll through social media, or flip through magazines, I am comparing myself to the lives of friends (close and distant), colleagues, stars and total strangers.

7 Habits that will transform your health and happiness

17-Apr-2014

The first time I heard the statement that happiness was a decision...I wasn’t sure I agreed. I often thought happiness was a splendid mixture of good fortune, great circumstances, great people and our environment. The more I’ve questioned, the more curious this topic becomes. I have concluded that the happiest people in the world seem to have very little. It’s intriguing that we think surrounding ourselves with more stuff will make us happy. More stuff tends to steel our beautiful energy and make us less happy over time.
