Wake Up & Stop: Starting Your Day with Quiet Time Is Key to Mindful Productivity

MeditationCalm

“When you arise in the morning, think about what a precious privilege it is to be alive. To breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” —Marcus Aurelius There was a time in my life when I’d wake up and start tackling my to-do list even before I got out of bed. I thought I had it all figured out, and if I just stuck to the script, my day would unfold in perfect order. My thinking and planning gave me a sense of control over the outside world, but I would often find myself trying to hammer things into place and feeling let down when they didn’t fit. Life often felt chaotic and stressful, and I knew deep down my methods weren’t working. Although I was being productive and running a chain of successful McDonalds’ franchises, my efforts were often at the expense of my … [Read More...]

Beauty Breath Meditation

Woman nature Yoga pose

Beauty is a manifestation of secret natural laws, which otherwise would have been hidden from us forever. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe The energy of the universe contains a sacred field of infinite magic power that every heart- filled intention can reach.   Its potential to manifest beauty and all things sits inside the hidden vibratory waves it owns that can be awakened.  Many sages, saints, and spiritual masters across the ages share their insights about this secret hidden force and guide us to go within to find it.  There are secrets in our breath that can help link us to this higher energy if we can commit to breathing more consciously—and then the power of that breath becomes divine. “If there is anything divine in you, it is your breath.” ~Yogi … [Read More...]

Transforming Your Relationship: Your Greatest Power is Your Femininity

Your greatest power is your femininity. Ironically, it somehow our femininity got lost along our journey to empowerment. The experience that we have of a woman who is truly in her feminine is called “feminine radiance”.  When a man experiences a woman’s feminine radiance, he is captivated and magnetized to her, like a moth to a flame. Unlike what most women think, true femininity is not weakness. Femininity comes from a willingness to be vulnerable.  And anyone who is vulnerably open will tell you that it takes a hell of a lot more strength to BE open (feminine) then it does to protect yourself and close up (masculine). Unfortunately, in today’s society it is quite rare to experience a woman who is authentically open in her feminine radiance. Out of … [Read More...]

Tending Your Entreprenurial Ecosystem

Hands holding plant 2

When I first started my business in 2003, I didn’t truly acknowledge that I was indeed in business. I was just a creative person who liked to coach people and who liked to make art. I was simply following my passions and helping people. I didn’t think of myself as an entrepreneur, especially since I was doing all of that on the side while I continued to climb the corporate ladder. But when I finally took the leap from my day job in 2006, I knew I had to start taking my business more seriously. Now that I’ve been in business for more than a decade, I’ve seen my business mature into a system that needs to be consciously tended to and cared for in order to continue thriving. Your creative business, too, is a living and breathing entity, and it needs TLC to blossom … [Read More...]
