Release Resistance from your life to set you free to succeed!

It took me along time to realize that resistance was holding me back from success, from achieving my goals and desires. Not anyone but me. Hard to face at first except that I think I always knew that I was the biggest reason that I was falling short of my desires. I was making it hard for me to move forward just because I didn't see how powerful I could be if I just let resistance go! Once I accepted this truth it was easy to move forward eliminating my old ways of resistance by making a few changes.  The first step on the path to no resistance was to let go of blame!...more

The secret to finding balance in your life!

I've been on a path for most of my adult life to be the best I can, to live my best life. Yes it's a cliche. Guess what I like cliches! Me, I'm kind of like a self help junky addicted to always improving, trying the latest, to move to the next level. It all started in college with taking my first eastern religion class which opened up a thought process and belief system that at first was very foreign, almost exotic to me. The ancient tenants of eastern teachers resonated strongly with me, awaking a desire not only to learn more, but a feeling that these were truths that I must live by....more

Even though I felt mean I eliminated toxic friends from my life for my well being!

Do you have a person or maybe more than one in your life, that although you think you they are you friend, you realize that they are just toxic. You don't like the scorching toxic energy that they constantly release.  I have had a few, not many people fitting that description that I consider my friend.  I thought I could never intentionally delete them from my life, not quite as easy as just pushing that key on my lap top, but I did.  I finally realized that I could not longer keep these people in my life, I needed a purity in my life that they were keeping me from....more

Let go of the past to live free in the present!

We all know that intellectually that we should just be ourselves, be free, let go, just do it without thinking or letting our ego take control of our life. It seems so easy to just release everything that is holding you back, fear, cultural beliefs, past experiences, all that binds you to the past like crazy glue, never weakening the bond, holding you fiercely even though you want to break free. It is the ability to see clearly that you are stuck, to do something about that will set your free to be your best, to be and have all that you want....more

I do many things that fill me with joy; cooking, gardening, running, reading but the one activity that fills my whole being with joy is yoga.

I carry that with me after I leave my mat to my world outside yoga....more

In 2015 I realize I have the choice to live my best life! The power is mine.

Choices, we all have choices in life.  The problem arises when we don't like our choices and then we think we have none.  We throw our hands up claiming that we have no choice and just let what happens, happen. Yes we have choices in each and every situation, we just don't have the one that we want or think that we want. I lived this way for a long time just believing that I was without choices when I didn't want to face the truth; ran from making what I thought was the hard decision never realizing by not making the choice I was complicating my life, causing more pain....more
