The Spiritual Law of Supply

The Spiritual Law of Supply

Write By:

The recent funeral for Beau Biden, son of Vice-President Joe Biden, was one of the most poignant public displays of love that I have ever witnessed.  President Barack Obama had difficulty holding back tears as he talked about what a good man Beau Biden was.  He shared personal stories of Beau’s humor whispering in the President’s ear at fundraisers or his prioritization of family by riding the escalators with his son at the Democratic National Convention instead of hanging out with donors in the back rooms.  The eulogy was personal and touching. ......

How Overcome Your Fears and Find Your Freedom to Flourish

When you were a kid, do you remember being scared of the dark? Do you remember needing a night light or asking to keep the door to your bedroom open so the hall light would help keep the dark monsters away? In my case, it was the clothes monster. My sister and I shared bunk beds, and we had a chair in the corner of the room. My sister would always pile her clothes on the back of that chair and when I’d wake up in the dark, in the middle of......

Unnecessary Roadblocks

Write By:

  I was telling my mother about two recent incidents that were both surprising and remarkable. A woman that I only knew through Facebook contacted me about my origami butterflies. She’d seen the butterflies at a party I attended where I gave them as a gift, and she loved them and wanted to know if I had more for sale. I was thrilled. I’d been making the butterflies for over a year, just for my own pleasure, but I’d secretly longed to sell them. And here was my opportunity. Another woman whom......

Are You Doing Your BEST Today?

Are You Doing Your BEST Today?

Write By:

 Several weeks ago I was asked to do a short presentation about the collaborative book F.A.I.T.H. – Finding Answers in the Heart. Following your heart was a given, then came the title “Trusting Your Inner GPS (Guidance Protective System).” I loved the title but I also wanted an acronym for people to use, something to cement the information in their minds. A handful of days passed before I found the phrase “Are you doing your B.E.S.T. today?” The first thing that popped into my head was a flash from the Army advertisement......

Is Your Fear Stopping You?

Is Your Fear Stopping You?

Write By:

Being creative is a wonderful gift. Through your eyes your dreams come to life. You blend the colors. You choose the lighting. You mold and shape and breathe into your art until it has form and movement and is ready for the world. Being creative can also really suck the big one. You have to perform. People are counting on you. Your work can’t be just okay, it has to be amazing. Breathtaking. You compare yourself to others who have gone before you, to others who are out there now. And you......

How to Overcome the Fear of Mediocrity

How to Overcome the Fear of Mediocrity

Write By:

There you go. That’s it – my greatest fear. I have a huge, hairy, unwieldy fear of mediocrity. While some may hear words like “lukewarm,” “average,” “okay,” and “mediocre” as solid and centered, I break out in hives. Yuck. Icky. Scary. It scares me to think of a milktoast life.  It’s why I love the Oscars, the Tonys, the SuperBowl, the World Cup and any handmade Soap Box Derby Championship – I cheer wholeheartedly for people playing at the top of their game and expressing their talents fully.  But what about the......

The Power of Your Thoughts

The Power of Your Thoughts

Write By:

It has been said that our thoughts are creative and that our thoughts shape our beliefs.  More aptly our thoughts create our feelings, our feelings create our beliefs, our beliefs create our actions, and our actions create our results. So, where do our thoughts come from? They come from the file cabinets of our minds and the old programming from the past.  We have all been influenced by our family, friends, churches, teachers, and other authority figures in our lives.  They also come from our memory banks that hold the perceptions of......
