Ready to make 2016 the best yet?

Ready to make 2016 the best yet?

Here in Hawaii people spend thousands of dollars on fireworks to bring in the new year. I remember going out to get the paper January 1st and the streets were red from the wrappers of the firecrackers. My animals never enjoyed those celebrations. Luckily now I live far enough away from my neighbors that the noise is...
Stress is optional and you can opt out

Stress is optional and you can opt out

Life can be filled with ease no matter what is happening around us or we can be overwhelmed and totally stressed out. The choice is ours and it is a choice we tend to make with our habitual thinking. What if: Before you went to bed at night you set your intent to wake up filled with a sense of excitement and ease? You decided to smile first thing in the morning, stretch and just lovingly ease into your day? Before you feet hit the floor you decided today would be filled with magic and miracle? You looked into the mirror, smiled and said  love you? How you start your day really sets the tone for the rest of the day. Why not start the day fully aware of your awesomeness and go from their. If your mind wants to worry about something thank it for sharing. Try it for a few days and see what happens. And remember you can start your day over anytime. When you find yourself stressed start your day over by focusing on joy, peace, happiness and love. read...

Secret to a Happy Life

The most important thing is how you feel. Your thoughts do become events in your life. Click to Tweet I remember when I was wallowing in judgment, self hate and depression. I was on the verge of killing myself (boy am I glad I failed so I got to stay for the second act!) when one of mentors asked me what I was grateful for. I thought about it for a minute and replied, “NOTHING.” Her response was, “Then you really are in trouble.” How right she was. I was taken to intensive care the next day and actually died five times. Obviously the doctors brought me back. When I got home I thought about my friends question. What was I grateful for? read...
Seeing life through the eyes of love

Seeing life through the eyes of love

It is the same world but it is a very different world. The other morning I was filling up my dog’s water bowl. Suddenly I was totally engrossed in the patterns the water made coming out of the faucet. They were so alive and beautiful. I have found that living my life from my Godself has allowed me to see a world I could never have imagined. As children we had a choice but no one ever explained our choices because the big people in our world had forgotten about the choice a long long long time ago. read...
Rainbows come in all sizes

Rainbows come in all sizes

The other morning I was in my hot tub watching the sunrise. It had stopped raining and I was thinking about rainbows. I often see one in the morning behind my home. As the sun hit the bamboo plant I noticed small drops of water at the tip of the leaves. As I starred at the water drops I saw a tiny rainbow. A beautiful, glistening rainbow in a drop of rain. I was so happy and it reminded of life as a whole. So often in life we miss the magic and the wonder of life. We are so busy thinking about life we don’t actually live life. Had I gone on thinking about rainbows I would have missed that absolutely beautiful miniature rainbow. I will never look at my bamboo plant or raindrops the same way. read...
Mangoes and the power of creation

Mangoes and the power of creation

12 years ago I decided to buy a home. I love mangoes and I managed to buy a beautiful piece of property with half of dozen mature mango trees. I was disappointed when year after year the trees seldom had any mangoes. One day while I was meditating I realized I had pictured beautiful mango trees but I had never visualized mangoes hanging from the trees. So after that, every morning as I walked my dogs past the trees I imagined fruit hanging from the branches in abundance. As you can see from the picture there are mangoes on my tree this year! It was interesting to become aware of my mental image, change it on a daily basis and then see the results. We see what we believe and if we don’t believe it we won’t see...
The Power of Pausing

The Power of Pausing

How simply taking a deep breath and pausing can change your life   Unless we have mastered the skill of quieting our mind we talk to ourselves, endlessly. The problem with that is we believe ourselves. Your mind was never meant to be in  charge.  You are the energy that gives life to your body. You are limitless, eternal and immortal. You are pure love and light and laughter. It is your mind that finds it impossible to be in the moment. When you align yourself with your mind life is often hard,  you are aware of an endless list of limitations and there seems to  be a lot to worry about. Fear lurks around, telling what you can’t do and reminding you how unsafe this physical world really is. read...
Love, laughter, joy and abundance

Love, laughter, joy and abundance

Are they gifts that are long overdue in your life? At the beginning of the year we often make new year resolutions and by February they have faded into the distant past. I’d like to help you make this the year you finally allow yourself the gift of consciously creating a life beyond your wildest dreams. My passion is helping people transform their lives and watching the magic occur. Lately I have been reading a lot of novels about magic. One of my favorite TV shows used to be Charmed, a story about three sister witches. I finally realized my fascination with magic is because I know magic is possible and can become and every day occurrence when we change our minds consciously choose to allow it into our lives. How do we do...

Chase Greatness: Giving Up Is Not An Option

Chase Greatness: Giving Up Is Not An Option

By Tess Life can be challenging and difficult at times for everyone. Things don’t happen as fast as we want them to, relationships end and jobs are lost. And the list goes on. We are tempted to give up. When my twin daughters went to kindergarten, I decided to get my bachelor’s degree. I didn’t get good grades in school and deep down I didn’t believe I was smart enough. I started with two classes: ‘How to Study’ and ‘Speed Reading’. Then I continued to take a few classes at a time until I finished. It took me nine and a half years! read...
