50+ Fearless Feminine Power

A Holiday Musing from My Heart to Yours!!!

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ~Norman Vincent Peale As we are in the midst of the Holiday Season, we often get so caught up in all the things that we have to do that we lose the magic of the season. It is so easy to get caught up in finding the perfect gift, making sure that you will have fabulous home cooked meals and decorate your home to the hilt. And if that brings you joy-have at it! Just make sure that you are not bartering your joy by doing so much that you forget about being in the poignant moments-the ones that are simple-yet profound-the magical ones. When I think of the Holidays, I think of my Grandparents. They were and always will be such a huge part of the festivities. I remember sitting at the dining room table with my Grandmothers, all of us saturated in the smell of anisette while we laughed uncontrollably at silly family stories we never tired of. And although my Grandparents have passed-I still feel their spirit all around me and wish that I could hug them right now, as tears roll down my face, tears that hold my extreme gratitude and profound loss. I remember my beautiful Mother greeting us with her sparkling smile, donned in glitter, always making sure that our home was warm and lovely and filled with an abundance of food that was made with lots of love. She always went the extra mile. And I remember my adorable Dad giving anyone who would listen the...

2016 Approaching-Have You Thought about Coaching???

When I think back on what the single most important investment I have ever made in myself, it was hiring a coach in 2013 when I was feeling stuck, burnt out, depressed and afraid. I was afraid that I would never find the courage to make choices that would allow me to have a better life-a life that I created by my design instead of by default. Had I realized what a game changer this would be for me, I would have done this much sooner. I now know that this decision to invest in a coach was worth every penny and it has enriched my life on soooo many levels. As a result of working with my coach, I left a job that I had been wanting to leave for quite some time and although I was scared to death that I could lose everything, I doubled my income that year! Some of the other benefits of coaching were: I started a new business-my coaching practice I doubled the income from my Home Staging business I am less stressed out and more full of joy My relationships are better I don’t stress out about money like I used to I take better care of my health I am creating my life the way that I want-fearlessly, soulfully and joyfully I feel as though I have way more power over my destiny The gift of coaching that I gave to myself did not come at a time when I had an abundance of money to invest in myself. In fact it was quite the opposite. Ironically, I invested in...

De clutter for Success

As I get older I am much more mindful of weeding out a lot of things that are simply cluttering up my life. This goes for extra items around my home as well as clutter that fills my mind with self defeating beliefs. It also goes for limiting my obligations and weeding out people and situations that sap me of my God given birthright-my life energy and my joy. This catharsis opens up room for fresh new things, situations and people that will serve me better, literally and metaphorically. It is simply the way that energy works on a really basic level. Energy needs to be able to flow and be expansive in order to help us grow. In order to manifest whatever it is that we want to attract in our life we have to open up space to receive it. The universe literally waits for us to open up space in our life to deliver what we want. Clutter prevents this. It keeps us stuck in “same old”. When you de clutter, you will begin to remove blockages that stop the flow of energy to you and all things that are important to you. That includes your joy, your success, your relationships and your finances. Whenever you can choose between being stuck and constrictive or expansive and “in the flow” –err on the side of being more expansive. Once you get on a roll with de cluttering you will feel a huge weight lifted off of you. You will also start attracting more abundance into your life. Here are some ways that you can let go of...

The Silent Killer of Dreams

Do you have the courage to live your best life? If you want to live your life fully you have to become friends with courage. In my humble opinion, one of the most courageous things that you can do is to peel away the layers of who you are not in order to discover who you really are from your deepest core. Society has such a huge impact on the way that we think that often we have beliefs that are not aligned with our truest spirit, and yet we take them as truths. Unfortunately, these beliefs may not be serving your highest good. In fact, they may be sabotaging whatever it is that you really want to create in your life and you may not even be aware of the impact. These beliefs can be the silent killer of dreams. It takes enormous courage to challenge the beliefs that society would have you accept. One of the significant ways that I help my clients is by defying these stories (aka beliefs) that they have about themselves. These stories are often created subconsciously and are more about the outside world and its influence on their life choices, than their inside world which is where true inner wisdom lies. As a coach, I find it incredibly rewarding when I see the light bulb go on in a client who was previously defining herself through the lens of others and now is defined by her truest self. That aha is the catalyst where true transformation takes place and once a client sees this, she will never be quite the same. In...
