As the new year approaches I reflect on all the changes in my life since the year 2000. This year as then, we are offered new vibration, new energy to take us into the Age of Aquarius and out of the Iron Age. What are the possibilities? What does all of the "hoopla" over 2013 mean?

13 years ago I was faced with living the rest of my life in a wheelchair. For someone as independent and stubborn as I, that was not an option. I had two choices. I could fall into self-pity and allow my body to give up on me or I could find a way to bring back the health and vitality I had so long enjoyed. I chose the second option. It has led me into a world of possibilities for everyone living with chronic pain or dis-ease.

As I sit this morning with nostalgia I realize just how much I have learned and how much more there is to life than what we notice on the surface. Aquarius brings us deeper into our emotions and asks us to connect our hearts with our minds, to open to a world of all possibilities. Some may look at my life and think. "What has she accomplished?" On the surface it seems like very little. Yet, I can honestly say I have created exactly what I believed I could create.

I look at my 10 year goals set in 2002 and realize I have met each one of them. I am still walking, I have written and published 3 books, (1 more than planned), I have discovered the tools for manifesting health in body and mind, and cleared my heart of the anger and resentment, opening life to a place of joy and gratitude no matter what is happening around me. My daughter has grown into a beautiful woman(inside and out) and I am grateful to those in this community who have assisted in meeting this goal, for I alone cannot take credit for her amazing character. It is true when we put the goals on paper, the Universe provides all the help we need to meet them. I have found the faith to accept that everything happens for a reason.  I have found the courage to offer these tools to others.

In retrospect, I should have set higher goals. There is so much more to be done. In review of my annual goals there are some not met. The decision now is, are they goals worth pursuing? What are the possibilities for the next 3 years, 5 and 10? I recently took a course and became certified in the Book of Life (Akashic Records) and have had a glimpse of what the Universe offers all of us. Though the world did not end as many believed would happen, a new phase began for the world. We moved into Aquarius and the Bronze Age, allowing us all to drop our materialistic way of life and begin living from the heart. We have the opportunities now to live from our greatest desires for community, family and friends, in fact for the whole planet. This age will present new challenges as we begin to take responsibility for what is happening around us and step into our integrity of what is right and wrong. It will become difficult to stand by and watch others be wronged, when we know we have the power to make it right. We will no longer accept face value of what is good for us, and begin to listen to our bodies and hearts, both of which tell us quite boldly what is best for us. We will step out of the selfish aspect of what is right for us as individuals and realize that when we put ourselves first, in terms of health and well-being, everyone around us benefits. When we choose love and acceptance of ourselves, loving others for who they are becomes easier.

As I begin training as a Life Force Coach, I see many more ways to assist others in finding their inner joy and well-being. Life is sacred, but do we understand the depth of what life is really offering? Why are we here becomes more than just about "me" and becomes more about "us". As you move into this New Age, take a deep breath, and think about the idea, that each person, breathes this same air, and what in truth is the air you breathe? We all live as vibration of energy. What vibration are you? What vibration exists around you? What vibration would you choose to be and have? This is something to think about as you set your goals for 2013.

I realize as I sit writing this, sniffling and coughing that I still have much to release. One of my goals will be to dig deeper into the understanding of the body/mind/heart connection and clear the vibration of toxic environments, foods, supplements and pharmeceuticals. I will pay more attention to what my heart is telling me, so my body does not have to be tired and ill. There is still so much to learn and to share with others. My goals for this coming year, will be around the opportunities to learn and share, with the hope of raising the vibration within and around me to a place of even greater unconditional love, gratitude and peace, which will lead to greater well-being for everyone.

Blessings to All in this New Age

Right Now, In This Moment

Right now, in this moment I am safe. Right now, in this moment there is nothing I need. Right now, in this moment all is welll in my world. Right now, in this moment I can choose peace. Right now, in this moment I can choose to see beauty surrounding me. Right now, in this moment I can choose happiness.

I use this or a similar set of thoughts anytime I am feeling overwhelmed, worried or anxious about the future. I felt the need to share this with you today. There is so much overwhelm and anxiety in the world today. But if we remind ourselves that our thoughts are our own creation, and our thoughts create our reality, then we can also be reminded to shift our thoughts and see something different. When we see the world differently, our reality is also shifted.

As you are thinking or speaking the phrases above, let your focus go to your heart. Take a few deep breaths and feel the relaxation in your chest, then allow a sense of peace to move through your entire body.

When I began this practice several years ago, I found myself constantly repeating the phrases almost moment by moment. Now (when I remember) when I find myself worried, scared, overwhelmed, angry, frustrated or just plain worn out, I can bring a sense of harmony within a few minutes of breathing and repetition.

This idea can be used to move through pain - both physical and emotional. Take a few moments when you find you are carrying anger or resentment. Change the wording to suit your emotional state. Practiced daily you will begin to notice more beauty, abundance, joy and peace surrounding you. Physical symptoms will lessen in intensity. You will find yourself thinking more positive thoughts and have fewer judgments of others.

This treatment may not create the perfect life, but it will ease your mind allowing you to coast through rough and rocky times. Have fun with it, looking for moments when you can take a breath and see life differently. Used with humor, it allows you to laugh and the vibration of laughter shifts the vibration of your environment, bringing more joy into the situation.

Thank you for taking time to read this. I hope you will apply the treatment to your life. Leave comments about how this works for you and share this idea with others.

Just for today I choose peace, rather than what I see in the world.

What are the Possibilities?

As I look outside at the newly fallen snow, I wonder .... What are the possibilities? It seems winter has come early, yet I remember saying those same words every year for how many years?

We moved to Rainbow Lake 22 years ago (Oct 31st) and I think of the banks of snow leading into our trailer as we moved our furniture in while giving out bags of Cheezies and Chocolate Bars. We had left Saskatchewan a week early, with the geese flying overhead, tumbleweed and dust blowing across the highway and thinking how warm it was for a late fall day. A few hours later we were concerned our plants in the moving van would freeze overnight and by morning the snow had started to fall. The drive from Edmonton to High Level the following day was strange, going from sunshine to snow storm and back to sunshine. By the time we hit Peace River it was getting dark and snow was falling, and yet I remember the beauty of fall colored leaves still on the trees. That winter I was amazed at the number of really warm days, as chinook winds melted the high banks of snow, as if to make room for more.

So today as I look back over the years I ask, "Has winter come early, or is it that I am just not ready to give up the beauty of summer for a snow shovel and mittens?" As I tried to shovel the snow from the deck and clear the snow from my car, I took a moment to look up and feel the cool flakes on my face. Mmmm... It felt so fresh, so clean and crisp. The fallen snow glistening from the street lights brought a sense of peace. I remembered that winter is the season of planning; a time of reviewing the past year and bringing together creative ideas to be sown in the spring.

I started the car, came back in the house surrendering the driveway to the snow still falling and blowing itself into whatever openings it finds. I surrender to the beauty of winter. I surrender and accept.

So what are the possibilities? What will be the blessings winter brings? What new and creative ideas will fill my mind and soul, where once my mind was on the blossoming flowers and overgrown grass? I give thanks for the changing seasons, each filled with pleasure and seeming pain, each offering it's own unique exercise program. I am filled with anticipation of the sun shining on the banks of white, filling my yard with diamonds and crystals shimmering and gleaming in it's reflection, reminding me of the great abundance of the Universe.

And Christmas, a time of peace, joy and goodwill. Yes, I am ready for winter and delight in the many possible adventures and events that come with the season. What are the possibilities?

When & Where Did We Learn to Be Angry??

Where and when did we learn that anger solved our problems or fixed mistakes?

This morning I was working at my computer, which began acting up - not being as fast as I wanted, freezing up and just generally being annoying. At first I was patient, just allowing the process, then it came to my mind, "I should be angry."

Even as I thought the words, I was asking myself why I would want to change the peaceful setting of birds singing and the sun rising. The truth was, I didn't want to be angry, but my mind was telling me that was the appropriate response. How many times do we listen to our minds, instead of to our hearts. This morning I chose to listen to the birds, to forgive my computer for being old and slow (I may soon need this compassion myself LOL) and to stay in a place of peace. But, I found myself wondering when and where I learned this response and why did it take me so long to realize, anger was a built in response not necessarily the truth of what should be.

Once again, I ask "Is Your Mind Telling You the Truth?" The answer was no.

Instead of being angry, I simply took a breath, sent gratitude for all the work my computer puts through each day, powered it down, and took time for coffee and pleasure in the cool breeze from my window and the rising sun. Now, back on my computer, I write this article, sharing my thought for the day.

Is anger the best solution to any problem or are there other ways and feelings that would create an even better solution? In fact, I ask myself, "Was there ever a problem or was the situation just life giving me an opportunity to find pleasure in the midst of my morning tasks?" "How often are problems just a curve to give us time to breathe and think?"

Look Forward to New Beginnings - Each Day is a New Start

This full moon is about endings and new beginnings. I was grateful to discover that this morning, as I listened to the birds and watched the sun come up.

There has been so much change going on this past month and I found myself asking quite often, "Is my mind telling me the truth?" When rapid change takes place, it is easy to get caught up in the "What did I do to deserve this?" and dwell on the worry of, "What will I do now?"

Taking each day, one day at a time, each change one step at a time, I have found myself simply surrendering to the process. Yet, even in surrender I found myself wondering about the purpose and why I was creating these ripples on the pond of my peaceful existance. I even found myself reading "Don't Change For Heaven's Sake" in an effort to stay centered, allowing external change, without getting involved in the drama.

As I read the article about this particular full moon, I realized the change in my life and of so many around me, is simply part of a bigger picture. When we allow ourselves to stay in a rut, not moving with the flow of life, earth's energy makes the shift for us. We can either resist, fight, hold on tightly to our security or we can let go and move with the energy, in faith what is ahead is brighter, more challenging, and exciting.

Once again I am reminded when we do not let external change affect our feelings of joy, love, gratitude and peace, we can ride the wave without fear or worry. Deep within we know All is Well and what is leaving will be replaced with something much more beautiful. It gives hope and enthusiasm to the adventure.

Ahhh ... With this thought I can say, my mind was lying to me again - There is nothing wrong, only something new coming. Nothing is broken, nothing needs to be fixed.

How do you handle change? Do you hold on to what is, in fear of what might be? What are your thoughts doing to encourage and support you?

We cannot control our external circumstances, but we always have a choice about how we feel and what we think.  In the midst of change stay true to your peaceful center, don't let the ripples become huge waves, allow yourself to simply trust. In trust you will find all the security you need.

Today I choose to see and feel the sun shining in my life and affairs.How about you?

Is Your Mind Telling You The Truth?

Connect Mind & Heart Through the Chakras
& Heal All Aspects of Your Life

So much of what happens in our life seems beyond our control. Our minds are filled with constant chatter, most of which is not self-supportive, and in fact is often destroying the joy and peace we seek. We find ourselves feeling unhappy, depressed, angry, vindictive, hopeless, and yet we are not sure why. Our health and vitality reflect these thoughts and feelings, as we struggle with chronic pain, lack of energy, constant colds, allergies, and other maladies. Our relationships are not fulfilling. Our careers, or lack of satisfying work, bring us into an even deeper level of hopelessness.

Do you long to live in peace, energy, vitality, finding joy in each day? Are you tired of  racing thoughts interfering with your ability to truly connect to what is important to you? Do you often feel your thoughts and feelings are not real, that they do not belong to you?

What if you could filter the thoughts and emotions to create more joy, love, peace, health and wealth in your life? What if you could heal yourself just by clearing self-defeating beliefs and replacing them with vital, life enhancing beliefs?   YOU CAN!!

Is Your Mind Telling You the Truth? offers practical solutions to unwanted stress, goal setting, belief clearing, taking you step by step through a process of renewed health in all areas of your life, from physical health to relationships and wealth.

As you work through the energy centers of the body, insight will be provided showing you many of your thoughts and feelings don't even belong to you - you are simply picking up on others around you, or living on auto-pilot based on the beliefs of those who raised you or were a part of your childhood community.

There is no blame on anyone for the life you are living now, but if you wish things could be different you owe it to yourself to read this book and begin to create the life you choose to live. You are the power of transformation. You have the right and power to heal yourself. You have the ability to make different choices.

There are very few overnight solutions to the years of programming you are now living. However following the outline and process in this book will bring you out of the rut you are in now, and over the course of 8 weeks you will see your life's many possiblities.

Until June 15th you can receive a free PDF of Is Your Mind Telling You the Truth?, by emailing me at (put Is Your Mind in the subject line) At the time the book is sent you I will also offer you a special discount for guidance through the process over the course of 8 weeks. (There is no obligation to take this offer.) For many the book itself will be enough, others may wish to have support - the choice is yours.

My reason for offering the book is somewhat selfish - The more people in the world who are happy and healthy, creates a better atmosphere and environment for ALL, including me. It is my goal to see joy, health, love and prosperity everywhere I look, and know it is REAL, not just a front to meet the social levels of acceptance.

I know this gift to you will return to me in many ways, so in this way there is an exchange of energy. As you become more of who you were meant to be, I too will be more free to be me.

Order you copy today, so you don't miss the opportunity it brings.

Many Blessings

Promises Promises

It has been more than 40 years since I  made a promise to bring more joy into the world. What was I thinking?

Making the promise was easy, made at a time when there was so much sadness. It seemed it would take so little to create a happier place. It began with just wearing a smile, sharing it with everyone I met. I looked for ways to be kind to others, ensuring the children I babysat had reason to laugh, assisting the elderly in the community in whatever ways I could. My motto was "If I can make even one person smile today, who would not have another reason to smile, or if I can create more ease in the life of another today, then I have done well." As the years went by, I looked for many more ways to inspire happiness in others. Whether I was skating, working, gardening, cooking, or just being a friend, my thoughts were on bringing joy and laughter into the world. Now, I am not a Saint. I wanted this as much or maybe even more for myself as for the people around me.
In the midst of this game of creating joy, I began to notice a restless sense of not being enough. It seemed no matter how hard I tried, people around me could not sustain the moments of joy. Even I could not be happy everyday in every moment. Whenever a shadow cast, I blamed myself. I found I was angry, lashing out at others, but inside I was hurt, feeling let down by my inability to keep the promise I made. Where was the help I expected to be there? Why was I doing this alone? What was the point in being happy in a world where others seemed more inspired by bad news and the latest cruel gossip?

I began to ask questions. "What am I doing wrong?" "Why does there have to be so much pain in the world?" "Am I being selfish asking for happiness?" "What is wrong with me?" "Am I kidding myself about life and the way it is supposed to be?" "Why is everyone around me is looking for so much more than just the simplicity of joy?" "Am I missing something?"

So I began a journey of looking for what everyone else seemed to be seeking - money, security, relationships, health, expensive clothes, better furniture, recreational toys, and more stuff..... It seemed this was the road to freedom and bliss according to friends, family and marketing ads.

Well, once again - What Was I Thinking? It seemed like fun for a while but the emptiness and continual grasping began to take a toll on my energy. My vitality, motivation and inspiration dwindled to zero. The greatest loss in this time of seeking was my health and relationships. Neither seemed sustainable in the midst of becoming better, faster, smarter, prettier, richer.....

So back to the drawing board and to the promise made so many years before. "Where do I find the happiness I seek?" "What is happiness?" "If found, how does one maintain a state of joy?"

The answer came in seeking peace. Once I decided that my expectations were too high, I settled for finding contentment. It seemed that even peace was too much to ask. Drama plays a big part in keeping so many motivated and inspired. But I was done with drama, so what did that leave me? It left me accepting that sadness is an expression of life, as is anger, guilt, self-pity, along with wonder, awe, and surprise.

In seeking peace, I began to notice that I was not being peaceful, just as I had not been happy in seeking joy. At this point I literally gave up. What is the point in any of this? Why are we put on this planet? Who created this game anyway?

I made a decision to just do what was before me to do, accept whatever came my way, and do the best I could with what I had. I stopped searching. My motto became "Show me what You would have me do today."

Once I stopped searching for joy and peace and simply put my life in the Hands of a Higher Power, I began to notice something within myself. It was a sense of acceptance which became a sense of peace, which then moved to a place of love and a sense of humor. I began to see the joy in little things - sunrises and sunsets, rainbows and the moon, rain, snow and sunshine, children and grandparents. Gratitude for all experiences provided the security I sought, my health improved and once again I was inspired to keep my promise.

Life will throw curves your way. There will always be bills to pay, but when you see them as an energy exchange for the blessings you receive, they too bring joy. Loved ones will die, but you will find peace in knowing they are safe and watching over you. Illness will become a way of learning more about yourself and those around you. Arguments will happen, to remind you of your own unique way of thinking and being in the world - no one is at fault. You will leave relationships, but in love, not anger. There will be occasional disappointments encouraging you to look deeper for the blessings.

When you choose to be the peace you seek, and the joy that is missing in life, everything around you has a reason. When judgments cease and acceptance fills the void, you realize there is no right or wrong - it all just is. The rest is a choice you make, either for joy or sorrow, peace or conflict.

Thank you to all who have been the inspiration I need when my own cup is running empty. Thank you to all who bring a smile into the world along with me - the world needs more of us. I am grateful to each person who came into my life, especially those caught up in the drama years, for what I learned from you has given me compassion and understanding. I apologize for the confusion I created as I sought to make the world a happy place. In gratitude I now know, I cannot make anything outside of myself. I cannot make anyone happy who is not already in a place of peace.

We each must make our own choices. I respect you for your decisions. As for me, I am content to be a believer of good, joy, peace and love, grateful to be asking the right questions and making the right mistakes. I am grateful for a simpler life and the people in my life who share in inspiring joy, peace and love.

Allowing Self-Acceptance

Today I release all hopes, dreams, and desires. Most of them were built on a need for approval. In an instant I realize it is a need to approve of myself that keeps me seeking yours. So today I ask, "What do I do from love, from the heart, from my soul? What thoughts and actions feel right and in harmony with the truth of my being? What words would I speak, if they were of my true nature?"

If we approve of ourselves, there is no need for the approval of others. If, at the end of the day there is no guilt, no remorse, no promises unkept, or decisions unmade, then I have been true to myself. If I can look at what has been accomplished and what is left undone, and know I have done everything possible, that is enough.

One of the commandments is "Thou shall have no other gods before you". Today I see a new perception of this law. I realize that maybe Jesus was trying to tell us, that our own being must come first. There is only one God and that One Spirit lives within all of us, but we cannot change others. We alone cannot change the world. The only difference we can make comes from recognizing God within ourselves. When we seek approval outside of ourselves, in essence we are saying the God within you, is greater than the God within me, or otherwise saying there is more than one God. Beyond the ego, within the core of our being, we are all one. Without self-love, and self-acceptance, we cannot truly love or accept the Divine within each other. Seeking approval is to say I am not of God, and that is an impossibility. If we are seeking outside of ourselves, it is a good indication we know there is something we are doing or being that is not in harmony with Creation. When we put our own approval first, what we offer to others will be in alignment with Love and Light, and if we are at peace with ourselves, we can only offer peace to others. Whether they accept will depend on their own consciousness, and is not a reflection of the self.

The end result is another commandment stating a similar law. "Love your neighbors as yourself". As we learn to love and appreciate our own inner core, we then find loving our neighbors is a natural part of living, for it becomes easy to see the Divine within them. Once we find the loving, accepting and allowing part of ourselves, we are more able to see it within everyone around us.

To love thyself, and to accept the God Within is not selfish or egotistical, it is the complete opposite. It is unconditional love for all of Creation and the reason we are here.

My mantra, YOU ARE A SUCCESS BECAUSE YOU EXIST, takes on a whole new meaning.

As for the mistakes I have made in an effort to be loved, liked and approved of, I will clear up those I can, and forgive myself, trusting the Creative Process to make all things right. We are here to learn, and to assist others in their growth, and while life seems hard and not at all perfect - everything is just as it is meant to be.

Today with or without your approval I seek to be true to myself, so I can be true to you.
