3 tips to help you overcome self-doubt.
You may have been taught to look for love outside of yourself.When you are very young, during your first seven years, you tend to pick up the beliefs and habits of the people who raise you. Sooner or later, these tendencies become a part of you. As you get older, you might start to question the concepts your parents taught you about who you are and what your potential is.
For example, there was a man who wanted his son to be a lawyer. This man believed that law was the only respectable career that was suitable for his son. So because the son had heard all his life that he was to be a lawyer, he followed suit and went to law school to become a lawyer. However, the son was never happy at law school; in fact he was miserable. The only time he was happy was when he was playing music. Because he was so unhappy, he used drugs and alcohol as an escape. This only made his problem worse as he escalated further into depression and despair.
If only the son had realized that his real niche in life was to be a musician. Continue reading
A long time ago I heard the phrase, “Your thoughts create your reality.” What does this mean to you? I think the truth goes a little bit deeper. As Francisco Coll shared, “You’re not what you think you are, you are what you think.”
You may consciously tell yourself certain thoughts, but subconsciously be actually thinking the opposite. For example, during a session with one of my Life Purpose Breakthroughs clients recently, we discovered a situation like this. She has concerns about the safety and wellbeing of her son who is getting into trouble. Her conscious thoughts are, “I know it’s his life and he needs to learn his own lessons in his own time. I can’t interfere.” Continue reading

Every now and again I get emails from people criticizing me for charging any money for my products and services. Their argument usually sounds something like, “If you were truly spiritual, you would offer this for free to be of service,” or “God’s gifts cannot be charged for.”
There is still a belief out there in the spiritual community that any spiritual service should be given away for free. Where do these beliefs come from? The belief that spirituality and money do not mix started a very long time ago. For example, in the Franciscan monk order it was believed that a vow of poverty was the only way to Godliness. The monks gave away all their possessions. The female order was named, “The Poor Clares.” What a label! Continue reading

We are often told that we “should” meditate. But who has the time to sit still for an hour every day? As a parent of a nearly 2 year old boy, I know it’s almost impossible to do that in my daily life. Have you been beating yourself up for not meditating? You can bring in some time of spiritual centering without having to do the traditional Eastern version of meditation. Here’s how.
First of all, I want to suggest that you change your concepts about what meditation is. I agree 100% that making time for spiritual reflection and connection is essential on a daily basis if you want to get the full richness and joy out of life. But there is more than one way to do this. Continue reading

As a soul you are a psychic being. As a child you were probably much more in touch with your psychic abilities than you are now. You may have felt a presence in your room, known what someone was thinking, remembered past lives or experienced a visitation from a deceased relative.
My father told me a story once that I found absolutely fascinating. My mother has relatives in Italy and when my parents were first married, they visited the family in Italy. My mother’s cousin, who had moved to New York, was also visiting at the same time, and had brought her two young children with her.
Since Dad couldn’t understand the Italian conversation going on with the adults, he started watching the children. They were all under the age of 5. The Italian children and American children were all playing together. An Italian child would say something in Italian and an American child would answer him in English. They played happily together like that for hours. Although they could not say words in each other’s language, they completely understood what the other was saying. It’s because they were really communicating psychically.
If you don’t have everything you desire in life, or if you are having trouble reaching your goals, it is a result of self-imposed limitations. The programming you grew up with, or the maze as we call it, has a strong effect on what success you will achieve. Often, you take this programming for granted thinking that it’s just the way life is – not even considering that anything could be different.
David Neagle says that in order to reach a new goal that you have never achieved before, you will “need to give up something of a lower nature, in order to receive something of a higher nature.” Some kind of sacrifice is required. Now sacrifice does not have to be a negative thing. Sacrificing a bad habit or limiting belief is very positive. But many people just aren’t willing to make any sacrifices because their programming is so strong. They are being kept a prisoner in the world of their own making because their beliefs won’t allow them to change. Continue reading

The 7 chakra centers are spiritual energy centers that are associated with areas of the physical body.
In Sanskrit, the word chakra means “wheel.” You can think of chakras as wheels of energy. They are constantly moving in a circular motion.
Keeping your chakras balanced and open is the key to feeling healthy, vibrant and energetic. When your chakras are balanced, your energy is vibrating at a very high frequency, which allows you to attract opportunities and magnetize your success more easily. The chakras are little understood. Knowledge is power! It’s time for you to learn what the chakra centers represent so you can begin to heal them.
