I’m in Latvia and a bit about self-love

IMG_1288[1]This time I am staying by a lake. It seems to be called Green  Lake which is interesting because  in Hawaii we have a Green Lake that is a very sacred place.

It is fall here and the clouds are moving very rapidly in the sky. It is quiet and when I got here a group of former students were waiting to greet me. It was nice to see familiar faces. After sleeping and sleeping and sleeping I feel almost normal.

Love comes in so many forms. As I traveled half way around the world for a time asking for a wheel chair was the most loving thing I could do. I got a new hip 2 months ago and after three airports I got tired of walking so I asked for help. [Read more...]

Amazing You

The power of your thoughts: words in action


Like gears in a machine our thoughts have power. They have the power to create a life filled with magic and miracles or a life filled with horror and limitations. Those gears inevitably turn one another, the direction is totally up to us.

Happiness and joy or sadness and loneliness?

Do you speak lovingly to yourself or do you judge?
Do you take time each day to feed your soul or are you too busy to take time for yourself?
Do you feel loved or unloved? Lovable or unlovable?
Do you value your own needs and or are others needs more important than yours?
Are you following your bliss or are you plodding through life believing the lies you’ve been told? [Read more...]

Ever felt stuck . . .

Copy of fork in the roadWhen I began my spiritual journey I felt so stuck. It seemed like no matter what I tried the results I got were the same. I kept creating the same pattern over and over again.

This (whatever the current book or process was) is the answer. I knew this would work this time. I would be all excited and hopeful, work really hard and before I knew it I would feel overwhelmed and hopeless all over again.

Eventually I decided there was something so inherently wrong with me that nothing would work. It was me. I was defective, unfixable and a hopeless case. At a core level I was unworthy and unlovable, after all that was what my mother kept telling me and the results I was getting affirmed that.

In hindsight I realized I kept trying to punish myself or polish myself into perfection. If only I was perfect then I would be happy and successful.

Now I know I had it all backwards. I kept trying to move away from pain so I kept creating more pain to move away from. Once I started moving toward happiness and joy instead I created more joy and happiness to move toward. Believe me it was a much more enjoyable journey.

You can move away from fear or toward love. Guess what? Whatever you choose to move away from you create more of so begin to move toward what you do want rather than away from what you don’t want.

So the question becomes very simple.

What do you want more of?

What DO you want? Focus on that and it will appear.

And remember:

Only the love is real.

You swim in a sea of love.

You are love, you are loved and you are lovable.

You are perfect just the way you are.

109: Staying Centered

Is your spiritual quest difficult when your family and friends are not on the same path? Do you have trouble staying grounded and not taking things personally? The gift of choice our loved ones give us is the focus of this episode.



Feeling unloved?

rocks with wordsLife is and then we tell ourselves a story.

My story is that we swim in a sea of love and the only thing that is real is love. I’m saddened that so many people feel unloved or unlovable. Often people react with anger when I say only the love is real and that we swim in a sea of love because they are so desperate for love.

There is a story I love about heaven and hell.

thanksgivingThere are two rooms. In the first room people are sitting in front of a banquet table loaded with food but all the people are starving. They have long spoons attached to their arms and as they try to feed themselves the food falls off the spoons before it can reach their face. They live in hell.

In the other room people also have long spoons attached to their arms but they are laughing and enjoying feeding one another. It is the same banquet table but the end result are very different. They enjoy living in heaven.

Where would you rather live?

Are you willing to change your story about life so you can experience happiness, joy, love and abundance? What beliefs are you still holding onto that limit you?

If you need help changing your story I still have a few spots in my coaching/mentoring program.

With love and aloha,

You are the Gatekeeper

wishing wellWhat are you inviting into your life and what are you keeping out?

Unfortunately most of our invitations are sent out based on the past rather than being based on what we do want in our life. We send out our invitations based on our filter system: our beliefs, agreements, assumptions and attitudes.

In this short video I talk about a different way to live your life. One based on love, gratitude and joy.



If you have any questions, thoughts or feelings I look forward to reading them in the comments below!
