I found myself sitting at a business lunch highly frustrated without knowing how I got that way. Had someone said something to make me mad? Was I mad at someone? Was I mad about the service? Or maybe something that had happened en route to lunch?
It sounds like a lot of questions about a simple feeling but recently I’ve started taking a moment to inventory a situation when I’m frustrated. Continue reading

Most of us need and want more connection and closeness with those in our lives. However, we have many things that keep us separate and distant from them.

There are many theories and methods people have touted as keys to creating loving and close relationships, but I am reminded today by my own 10 year old wise one about what is the #1 thing that creates closeness for him. Continue reading

There is increasing credible science and recent press extolling the personal and professional benefits of regular, short sessions of simple breathing meditation. Yet it’s not uncommon for very intelligent people to believe this just isn’t for them. You might be one of them. Does this resonate?
Meditate? Not for me. I’ll get lazy, lose my edge, fail to compete, and lose the game of success. Continue reading

Is my and my family’s future going to get any better?
We are all stewards of our own destinies.
In that, we shoulder both the responsibility and accountability for all our life choices.
Every thought, action, inaction, belief, word, deed, excuse, and intention: matters.
There is no simple or magic way to adopt these truths: yet adopt them you must.
In order to change your circumstances in life: you must first be willing to accept the fact that you and you alone co-create your reality.
Once you surrender to this foundational life principle: everything before you will come into focus.
You’ll see how your thoughts, beliefs and intentions played a crucial role in every outcome.
For every action is based upon an underlying thought: which in turn is based upon an intention.
If your intentions are misaligned: the resulting outcome mirrors that trajectory.
By course correcting the underlying intention of your every thought, action and deed: you align your Self and your will: with your desired outcome.
When all of these elements are working in concert with one another: positive results are inevitable.
Like attracts like: for all of life is energy: resonating at varying frequencies.
Seek to resonate at a frequency that ensures optimism, abundance, gratitude, humility and grace.
From this plateau, you are ever closer to your will: in alignment with the purity of your intentions: reflecting that which universal law delivers: like for like.
Trust that the more you surrender and align your intentions with the natural rhythms of nature and the Universe: the more abundance you will feel and achieve: in all aspects of your life: not simply in monetary matters.
For currency is but a form of energy: continually resonating with you: at your current level of belief and harmony or disharmony with it.
Believe you are worthy of more: and so shall it be.

I’ve heard it said that everyone’s favorite word is their name. I haven’t polled anyone to find out whether or not it’s a fact, but it makes sense. To be listened to and heard is a gift. To have someone’s undivided focus in a busy world is something special. Continue reading
