Enough Already: How to Choose Peace Over Perfection

Let’s talk about the concept of enough: good enough smart enough pretty enough skinny enough rich enough practical enough.

There can never be enough it seems. We have this insatiable desire in this culture to be enough.

But when is enough, enough? Where do we draw the line and say, Ok, enough already? When have you ever said, “I am good enough?”

Build a Bedrock of Faith

When our foundation is made of fear and ego-based thoughts, we are more apt to fall through the quicksand of life’s eruptions.

After so many sinking moments in my life, I saw that I needed something to hold onto. Hope seemed to only settle my heart momentarily. Because ultimately hope isn’t faith. 

Like Jim Carrey says, “Hope is a beggar.” It breeds the same kind of fear resistance that our ego loves to hang onto, because it doesn’t require any action on our part.

The Legacy of Leadership

I am a week out from the incomparable Global Leadership Summit; when Bill Hybels spoke on the topic of legacy, I immediately thought of my late grandfather, Robert Amento who wrote: Want to be humbled? Ponder how the world will consider your legacy.

Leading with love takes commitment, perseverance, self sacrifice and above all, passion. Bill shared his philosophy on the four lenses of great leadership. On some level, we are all leaders. Each of us motivates, inspires and mobilizes others in some capacity, be it in our homes, communities or workplaces.

How to Use the Law of Entrainment to Stay Grounded in Love

As an Empath, I spent most of my life succumbing to the lower energies around me. I left events, parties and family functions with the life sucked out of more, or worse (sick to my stomach). I eventually subscribed to the idea that this is how life would be as a Highly Sensitive Person. I found myself retreating more and more from situations that left me susceptible to toxic, negative energies.

I may not have known about energy vibration or frequencies at the time, but the lower frequencies that go hand in hand with negativity, fear, judgement and resentment were dimming my light. I allowed this to happen although it certainly was not my intention to feel drained and lifeless after various situations.

Open Heart Series #060116-1228

I am home now.
My soul sits pleasantly
Right beside my heart,
Knowing very well
That the love I searched
And searched for
Was actually here
In my own being all along.
My journey in this lifetime
Had to pass from
Student to teacher
And back again
To learn the fates
Hanging in the gates
Of this earthly plane.
Now heaven appears;
God’s will be done
Through divine love.
For I’m just a messenger—
My time here is short
But I have work to do
And love to spread.
Incubation of my heart
Has ceased and what’s
Revealed may only be
Described as Divine.
For I cannot explain
What this mission is for
Except to say it is my soul
Who has come to deliver
What is known in the heavens
And keenly placed on my heart.
Why wait until the gates
Await with blinding white?
Why live with darkness
When you can choose light?
The choice is yours but
I have made up mine.
Heaven is for real
And I’m bringing the
Down the Divine love.

How I Found My Sacred Song

My spiritual awakening has quite literally taken flight the past three weeks. Birds have been interacting with me to the degree that I know something significant is transpiring; somehow they are here to deliver messages, but what?

I struggled as to what the meaning might be, but as I often do, I chose to surrender this to Spirit by asking for the answers to be revealed to me. And then I put it out of my mind and let go.

Make Friends With Fear

As my journey continues to take me further off into the unknown, I have grappled with fear. We all deal with fear.

Without conscious practice and acknowledgement, fear can derail us from following our heart.

My spiritual awakening is paying off as I learn to work with fear rather than bury it (or worse—ignore it altogether).

Trust in Our Dreams

Have you ever sat in stillness to contemplate your dreams?

I have been on a wild journey of discovery that planted me right at the doorstep of my own dream: to serve others with the full expression of my true self—an intuitive healer and empowerment coach.

On a cool October evening, as I experienced the super moon eclipse from my outdoor yoga class, the instructor gave me a piece of advice: if a dream is placed on our heart, we are powerful enough to manifest it.

Stand in Your Light

This is who I am inside
This is who I am, I’m not going to hide
Cause the greatest risk we’ll ever take is by far
To stand in the light and be seen as we are
So stand in the light and be seen as we are

With courage and kindness hold onto your faith
You get what you give and its never too late
To reach for the branch and
climb up leaving sadness behind
Fight hard for love
We can never give enough

—”Stand in the Light” by Jordan Smith

Open Heart Series #031016-132

I am not giving up on you,
But I am giving in to me,
Into my needs and my love
Just as you always have.
I am standing my ground,
But hear me when I say
I will not give up.
I will love you from afar
And support your dreams.
I will lift you up and
Always wish you well.
I know I will see you again.
I don’t know when or where;
I don’t know how either.
But in the distance that
Our lives take us apart,
Know there is never
A semblance of distance
In between the heart.
I will keep you there
Where you feel safe and warm,
Until one day you may just
Decide to feel what it’s like
To climb inside for awhile.
To know that you are loved;
You are so loved.
Until that distant day,
I’ll hold you in my heart
And see you in my dreams.
