Hope is the knowledge that change is possible, even when it seems hard to imagine. In a world that very much feels like it has been thrown into a cuisinart, there are so many opportunities to be part of the solution. You bring a unique combination of heart and talent to the world that no one else possesses! While the world tends to favor the status quo and conformity, there is so much fun to be had in the experience of living, growing and finding the courage to live a purpose driven, rewarding life.

It won't be without challenges and growing pains, but it is those very challenges and your ability to overcome them that will give you such a tremendous confidence in your own capabilities to adapt to change and succeed! If you embrace the journey, fulfillment will come in knowing that you are doing what you are here to do. You will learn that every stage of your life prepares you for this work - every accomplishment and every setback, a lesson to be learned, making you ...

My message to the world comes down to one word: try.

In my lifetime, I have seen too many people afraid to try; too scared to try new things, to try new places, to try meeting new people. Watching them place needless limitations on themselves meant, sadly, watching human potential go wasted. Great ideas, solutions and relationships were never realized or even attempted because they were too reluctant to try. They feared what others may think, they doubted their own abilities or they feared what may or may not happen.

Yet, trying can be liberating, empowering, and even exhilarating.

Trying leads to discoveries - discovering abilities and strengths that you didn't know you had, discovering your own beliefs and values, and discovering what the big, amazing world is all about.

Trying builds confidence and belief in yourself, even when others may doubt you.

Trying means starting, somewhere, anywhere, and then proceeding one step at a time, no ...

B.E. Y.O.U.R.S.E.L.F. Let me share this acronym:

B = Be yourself
E = Escape into nature

Y = Yuck it up! Laugh
O = Offer a helping hand
U = Use humor daily
R = Relax by nurturing yourself
S = Simplify your life
E = Engage with others
L = Listen more, talk less
F = Face your fears

Being yourself comes from a place of authenticity and empowerment. It is not losing your voice, but saying your truth. It is accepting all of you your strengths and your weaknesses.

When you are Escaping into nature there is a rekindling of the heart/soul from a cellular level. It is leaving the myriad of daily to do tasks, all the distractions and becoming quiet, observant and curious with the beauty around you. What can you see that you did not yesterday?

Nothing brings you to life as laughter, so Yuck it up! The saying "Laughter is the best medicine" is more potent than you could ever imagine. When was the last time you had a...

As I looked back over my journey from fear to love, I discovered Twelve Keystones that I had to embody or perhaps I should say master so that I could reclaim my happiness and awaken to the truth of my magnificence. Through teaching about my experiences, I found they apply universally. To share my understanding, I have written a book about these Keystones titled Dreaming Down Heaven. I have shared them here!

You are the playwright of your own life! The backdrop for life is like a Magical Theatre, and as the star of the production, we are each free to create our own roles, changing them at will but first we need to investigate the myth, truth, and magic of our lives and discover what is working or not. Magical means anything is possible. We are limited only by our choices.

For I see in you the amazing Light you truly are and yet I feel in you the immense sadness, fear and pain that locks you behind a a high brick wall ...a wall you believe protects you, when all it really does is cause more of the same.

Will you sit with me and let me share what helps ease the pain and lets you step into your true magnificence?

No matter what you may think, no matter what you may have been told, you are a Light unto the world, sent here to share that Light with the world, your world, wherever that may be. You are here to share the special and unique gift that is wrapped up in your human form.

Yes, I hear you say, you've been told you are worthless, you are nothing. And I'm here to say, "not true." Take my hands,...

The keys to finding fulfillment in life may be different for each of us, but here is what I have discovered to work for me... and the essence of what I've discovered after my nearly 40 years on this wonderful planet. I hope these insights launch you into the next decade with powerful new renewed force and energy.

I discovered these four distinctions in the 50+ entrepreneurs I interviewed, but I do believe at their core, they also lead to a more fulfilling life:

1. Embrace a consuming passion by sharing it with others. Surround yourself with others who share your passion and you'll find they fuel that passion to take it further. Like a plant, if you don't give it sunshine to grow, it will die. Never let your passions die! The 'sticky' passions are those more important to others than they are to you. The more you share it, the stronger it becomes. Sharing it can be like adding a drop of Miracle Grow!

2. Pursue an impersonal goal. When...

The Exercise below is one that I gave to one of my Transformations workshop groups. The results were amazing and life changing for some.

At first it may seem like this is just another trivial exercise. However, when you practice it as part of your Life on a consistent daily basis, you will find it is absolutely the most Powerful Action that you could ever perform. Now I know some of you will try it for a few days and probably not take anything from it. And some of you will try for a few days and realize it is not about the taking from it or results that it provides you. You will find it is the state of BEING that it has you and the others access that makes it have such a profound effect on your relationships... So here it is...

If today were my last day on Earth and I could share 500 words of brilliance with the world, here are the important things I'd want to pass along to others...

Let's begin with self-value...

Value yourself. Value your Self. Your value never changes. You can't increase it and you can't diminish it. Sure, the value of your actions can vary, but the value of who you are never, ever will.

Never confuse your actions, possessions and connections with who you are. If you don't yet know the difference between who you are, and all the things you do and own, it's time to get started on getting to know yourself in a new way.

Imagine yourself as a song. What is your personal "tone", your personal "sound"? Make it part of everything you do. Put more YOU in your life.

To deny your worth is to deny the worth of the Divine spark in us all. Value who you are.

Value yourself enough to dare not to compare...

When used in a way to make your ego feel either superior or inferior to someone else, comparison is a happiness-killer.

You will never get your best answers through comparison...

Synchronicity - Are You Where You Are Supposed to Be?

The door opens. The path is lit. A missing piece falls into your lap. The phone rings and the caller is someone you thought of just moments ago. The ever-famous "magic" parking spot opens up. I love it when I seem to just bump into someone I really want or need to see. What are the odds? There are 1,440 minutes in a day. What if I had walked a different route, took an extra minute to read my mail, veered left instead of right? There are 1,439 odds against me bumping into that person...if one goes simply by mathematical calculations. But why on earth would someone choose to do that?

Long before James Redfield wrote of the Celestine Prophecy and Celestine Vision, I held the belief that synchronicity in my life meant that I was on the right track on all levels: spiritually, emotionally, intentionally, physically, mentally. I still choose to believe this: the more synchronicity presents itself in my life, the m...

Love Your Ego, Love Your Life and Lead By Example.

The greatest gift that I have learned in this lifetime is to live my life by these three phrases: Love your ego, love your life and lead by example.

Like many souls, I once believed that enlightenment was reached by ridding oneself of ego. In my early teens, I was so frustrated by the power my ego had over me that I broke down in uncontrollable tears. I asked the divine why I was struggling with detaching from my ego. Then, like a divine lightning bolt hitting me I realized, "trying to rid yourself of ego is your ego's work". It had me chasing a ghost, spinning in circles distracting me of who I really was and what my true life purpose would be. If the divine had created me with my ego intact then there had to be a reason I had an ego.

That reason is my ego allows me to fully experience my humanity here on this earth. I started to be thankful for my ego instead of fighting it and I embraced what it ...

I rarely feel a desire to teach other people how to live or love. Why is this? I experience each person I meet as already "being Love"; as already being intelligent, whole, and with the ability to discover for themselves who they are and what life means to them. I find it more meaningful to simply love others, to listen without judgment and to infuse them with so much joy, laughter, tears and passion that we both are left hungering for Life. When we hunger enough, we find our own way.

I believe we are all born fully knowing. It is often only a matter of trusting that we know, trusting that we are already whole. All too often we doubt our born-with intelligence. We give up our power to teachers, gurus and books. We stop listening to our passionate hearts.

Often when we can't find a reflection in the world of what feel, we let doubt take over, and we abandon ourselves, insights and creativity. I often think of something my father once told me. "Robin, liste...

I'd like to share some of the things that I've learned in my life so far that may be valuable in thinking about overcoming obstacles.

FIRST - Surround Yourself With Positive People
There could be a lot of reasons for me to be negative. But, for as long as I remember, I have been surrounded by positive people. I focus on hanging around with people that are happy. It's easy for anyone to be negative. But if you surround yourself with positive people you find it's a lot more fun to be positive and make things happen!

SECOND- Stay Ahead of The World
I
try to always stay ahead of the world around me the best I can. When I meet someone for the first time, I know they have questions about my chair. So they don't feel uncomfortable, sometimes I just answer their question before they ask it. Why am I in the chair? What happened? Then they can get their mind off my chair and on to other matters.

Hi it's me Brilliant Lexxi.

I am 11 years old. I may be small but I am convinced I can have many successes and make a difference in hundreds of lives. I have a mother who was adopted and when I thought about the possibility of a child not having a loving family a good night kiss or warm home, I could not do anything.

Love is so easy to give and it is free! There is always more to give. You don't need money, only a heart. My goal is to make one more child feel special. Make one more child feel as though there is LOVE out there in the world. I hope and believe I will grow "Lexxi Loves" bigger every year.

I have been blessed with a wonderful loving family, and now recently a gift from God- a beautiful voice to sing with. I am writing and hope I will be able to help others when I record my CD and share everything I have through song. I will be adopting two children when I grow up. I will give them a family to love and security that my family has given to my mama. I ...

The greatest power in the universe is faith. The same force that gives rise to the longings in our heart is guiding our lives towards their fulfillment. Like wind in our sails, when we let go and allow the Divine breezes of support and insight to direct our lives we discover a happiness and contentment beyond what we could have dreamed of for ourselves.

Fear tells us that we can only be happy in certain situations and as long as such and such does or does not happen. Unfortunately, it is these ideas of what will make us happy that keep us from experiencing true happiness.

The One who created us had an end in mind when were fashioned but we have no idea what that creation looks like and therefore have no idea what experiences we must go through in order to catalyze our becoming.

We have, however, been given clues. These clues come in the form of our heart's deepest longings.

Being and Creation are ever present. They do not exist apart from one another. As God, you are always being and you are always creating in every moment.

Being is the Essence of God. It is changeless, infinite, and absolute. It is the Light that encompasses all of Creation. It is the very fabric of all thought and form. Being is Who and What you truly are and the Consciousness with which you experience all of life.

Creation, on the other hand, is the infinite expression of Being. It is the unlimited extension of God's Love through both the Holy Spirit and the ego. Creation is the mechanism through which God experiences Himself. It's the means by which God is becoming Self-Aware.

What does this mean for you? How does this understanding impact your life?

No matter what you do or don't do, change or don't change, impact or don't impact in the world, you cannot alter Who and What you are or Who and What another is. You simply are. God simply is. No matter which th...

All moments matter.

Perhaps you believe that there are two types of moments: Ordinary moments and extraordinary moments; moments that are to be treasured and moments that might as well be pitched in the trash.

But all of our "ordinary moments" are moments that we must learn to treasure. Why? Because these "ordinary moments" moments are like seeds from which the exotic flowers of extraordinary moments blossom. If we are expert gardeners, we will look at the humble seed and know that a blossom of remarkable beauty is waiting to be born from it. We know that if we take care of it, feed it nurture it, and are patient with it, then ultimately its breathtaking beauty will ultimately be revealed to us.

If we take care of the ordinary moment that is, just as we would care for the humble seed, then will see that miracles lie within it, waiting to be born. If we care for the moment with wisdom, with understanding, and with love -- we will see it blossom...

There is only one you. No matter how many people you compare yourself to, or how much you try to please others, no one can ever be who you are, as you can never be who they are. Honor the path that you have traveled, be proud of who you are in this moment, and give thanks for the opportunity to have another day.

Life will not be easy, you will be hurt, you will lose loved ones, your finances, relationships, jobs, living arrangements, and physical appearance will all change. No matter what may occur in your life, good or bad, know that it is a part of the greater good in why you are here.

It sounds complicated at first, but it is simple and will change your life forever. It did for me.

Oneness is more than a concept. It's an experience and a way of living. In every culture throughout time there have been saints, mystics, sages, shamans and prophets who have come to the same conclusion: all things in this world are deeply interconnected and ultimately are only diverse expressions of the one original source energy. This was the essential experience and conviction of most of the worlds' religious founding leaders. They called the Oneness of life different things: God, Allah, Hashem, The Great Mystery and so on, but the idea of oneness is universal. Oneness means we are each united with all of life.

Oneness is not just a spiritual or religious idea. It is now a clear scientific principle. Einstein died trying to prove the unified field theory, a belief that all life and matter are united by an underlying energy or consciousness. The great quantum physicists D...
