Observing Self

One of the greatest skills we can learn in this life is the ability to observe ourselves. Without this skill, we think we are our thoughts, we think we are our emotions, we think we are our reactions and completely at the mercy of them. 

But our soul, our light of consciousness/awareness is so amazing in that it can help us step back and see the whole human. For example, I can step back and look at the “Hope personality” and the “Hope story” and understand why, if left unchecked I or she rather might react certain ways. Who is this part of me that allows me look at myself this way? It is the observer or witness and it, like a muscle of the body can be strengthened. This is the part of me and you that can choose to react in different ways. This is the part that can say…hey, that didn’t work so, let’s do something else. This is the part of you that can change EVERYTHING!

Take some time today to imagine stepping outside yourself and looking back at yourself. See yourself objectively (as objectively as you can). Try it! It’s an awesome trip!


It is impossible to be a happy person AND think predominately negative thoughts.

Whose beliefs do you believe

We do not have to accept that which was downloaded to us by default by our families of origin or the culture we came from.  We can create our own more positive and helpful beliefs about anything and everything.  For whatever we have created as a belief inside us, our minds work hard to prove as true.  So…you can see how important our beliefs are!!! Let’s intentionally choose good ones!

Raise Your Consciousness Tip

Be Congruent! Being congruent is speaking our truth.  It means saying what we mean and meaning what we say. It is sharing who we really are inside and not who we think we “should” be. It is learning to show up fully for ourselves and those in our world.

Be Free

Free yourself and follow your heart even if for just a moment.

The power of your life

Let your life be a blessing to others. Never underestimate your influence.

Holding on to pain

Most of the pain in the world is not from what happens to us…but what we think about what happens to us and how long we hold onto the pain of our belief. – July 13, 2012

Shining Your Light

One of the fastest ways to increase your ability to shine your light is to clear the clutter that blocks your soul from shining fully! Look at what you still carry from the past; anger, disappointment, judgement, etc. and work to forgive and release. All that icky stuff acts like a handkerchief over your light bulb! July 13, 2012

The hold of the past

Time and experience are constantly unfolding under our feet, all around us like a conveyor belt. Every time we get stuck on an event that has occurred and is now past, we are not attentive to the unfold-ment that is the present. Let the past be the past and leave it on the conveyor belt as soon as you can drop it. This moment is new and new again and new again. Work to release cynicism of “knowing” what the future will hold. Become like a child again.     -July 10, 2012

On longing

Longing is a wish for what we do not have. Longing is a habit of running away from what is. Longing is living in a dream. – July 9, 2012

Gifts we all have

The light of our life; our consciousness, is our greatest gift. – July 6, 2012

Who is in your circle?

Are the majority of the people in your life positive or negative? Remember- we are highly, HIGHLY influenced by the thinking and attitudes of those in our sphere. When choosing new relationships ask yourself: will this person inspire me and will I inspire them? – July 5, 2012

Our human experience

Some days you think you have it…you’ve figured it out. Some days you think you’ve lost it. Some days feel like marshmellow. It’s all part of the human experience. It’s okay…you’re right where you’re supposed to be, right on time! Take a breath and be gentle with yourself! Everything goes up and down…hold on tight, it’s a great ride! –  June 28, 2012

Don’t wait for ‘perfect’

The mundane details of life will distract you forever. If you’ve been putting something off that you really want…start planning TODAY! Don’t wait for the day everything is perfect and ready. That day…in the future…does not exist. -June 26, 2012
