You

Monday, September 30th, 2013

I believe the ultimate life journey is to reveal one’s true self and live life reflecting who you truly are.

As creatures of habit, it’s easy to keep ourselves living a life we’ve outgrown, or one that was never ours to begin with.

I invite you to exfoliate: mind, body, and soul.  Get rid of old thoughts, old skin, old patterns.
Allow your fresh, freer expression come to the surface.
Become you.

Dance

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

How often do you celebrate your steps?

We live in a world that is results oriented.
Set a goal, achieve the goal, feel good for a minute, then start toward the next goal.
Living life this way is full of “work” that is rewarded by a few pinnacle moments.
One could liken this to the sex act.  Do you find yourself so busy working toward your orgasm during the act of sex, you end up only valuing the few moments when you reach your peak?

If you can experience the journey toward your goal as a dance, rather than a means to an end, you can maximize your whole ride.
Rather than work, life becomes play.
Rather than fully enjoying only a few minutes of climax at the end, you can take pleasure in every moment leading up to the climax.  Ultimately this actually enhances the pleasure of the climax itself.

No more working toward your goal.
As of today, I invite you to dance your way there.

Touch

Monday, September 16th, 2013

How important is touch to you?
Do you enjoy being hugged, kissed, or cuddled?
Do you enjoy being massaged?
Do you enjoy sexual touch?
Do you appreciate sensual stroking?
Are you more comfortable snuggling and petting your dog or cat than your lover?
Do you prefer holding a baby in your arms to holding your spouse?
Do you greet your friends with hugs and pecks?

Most babies relish being in an adults arms, being held, loved, cherished and protected.  Depending upon your upbringing, you may or may not grow up to be comfortable with touch.  Maybe you like one kind of touch but not another.  Most people crave some kind of physical connection with another living being.  It can bring feelings of comfort and warmth.

I believe there is a time and a place for all kinds of touch.
Even if you’re not in a relationship, you can celebrate yourself with sensual and sexual touch.
Even if you don’t have close friends or children, you can share cuddling with a pet and you can get professional massages.
Touch is important.

How are you honoring the importance of physical touch in your life today?

Atonement

Monday, September 9th, 2013

What would it be like to forgive ourselves every night for anything in the day we feel we said or did that was not of our highest self?

We all have things we know we could have done better.  People we could have been kinder to, and things we could have said or done with greater consideration and caring, not only to others, but also to ourselves.

Rather than wait for a religious occasion, I invite you to end every day congratulating yourself on what you did well, and forgiving yourself for what you did not.  You can choose to forgive others who may have hurt you inadvertently or even on purpose.  You can also consider asking others for their forgiveness the next day if you think you’ve done something to atone for with them.

Each day is a fresh life experience, from the time you awake, till you go to sleep.
I invite you to awake with positive intention, evaluate prior to going to bed at night, express gratitude for all that was Divine, and forgive anything that was human.

 

Go Astray

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

Life is not a linear experience.  Yet how often do you find yourself trying to get from point A to point B by taking the shortest route available…A straight line?

Maximizing and enjoying the ride of life gets much easier when you stop expecting things to happen in a linear fashion, and recognize that reaching a goal along the shortest, fastest route is not necessarily giving you the best results.  Results happen along the journey as much as when you reach your destination.
