We are Like Sea Glass


I never heard of sea glass until I took a trip to Key West for a retreat. One of the speakers passed around a basket full of sea glass and asked the 30+ people to take one. When it was my turn, I chose the darkest, fullest piece I could find.

Why?

Because that was the bit of silicon that had been through the toughest forces…had tumbled the most on the waves…and had it survived. Instead of cracking, shattering or being crushed by its journey, that glass had absorbed the larger energy and become stronger. Because of its journey, it was a beautiful reminder of transformation.

Are you struggling with powerful forces in your life right now? Do you feel as if you should give up or give in, even when you know it is not the best path for your growth and expansion? Are you tired of the conflict and turmoil?

Believe

Take heart – that fact that you are reading this post and nodding your head is enough evidence that you have already survived.

You are worthy…or you would not be here, right here, right now. You are strong…or you would have already given up. You are valued…isn’t it time to value yourself?

Trust in love greater than you can fathom or imagine.

Know that your journey is part of your contract.

What appear to be obstacles to your small mind are really stepping-stones on your path.

Breathe in the goodness of life and allow it to flow through you.

 Reframe. Release. Renew. Rinse and Repeat.

It’s another step in the Heart Dance. (can you hear the music playing?)

Tonight is the Night


With the arrival of Spring, the Heart Dancing Radio Show has moved to a new day of the week. And a new time.

We are now broadcasting live on Sunday night, 8:00 p.m. cst.

(AwakenedRadio.net or the TuneIn app).

Tonight, I will share the third episode in the Heart Dancing Steps series. To remember how to live from your heart, not your head, there are certain concepts and steps to integrate into your life. Tonight, I will share the lyrics and the dance steps of Heart Dancing.

Please share your name and email address so you can be the first to know about my new program.

Did you Listen?


Thank you for listening to the Heart Dancing Radio Show last night! Learning to listen to the music of your heart is easy when you know how. And the benefits are huge – loneliness, resentment, fear and doubt become things of your past. Your present is filled with love, joy and happiness. Acceptance of yourself and others is the new normal.

It’s such an easier way to live!

During the show, IFaceBook Group invited you to join the Heart Dancing FaceBook Group so we can continue to share, interact and learn from each other. When I woke up this morning, several people messaged me on Twitter and said that they couldn’t find the group.

I am so glad that they told me — otherwise, I never would have known and would have wondered why there was no response to the invitation.

This is a perfect example of how I could have filled in the blanks and created a negative story about my mission, the radio show, etc. I could have easily been “hooked” by my thoughts into a story that made me feel small, when the truth was something much simpler – that the link on FaceBook…for some reason…was not discoverable!

Thank you for your love and support. Let’s change the world, one heart at a time.

(If you missed the show, no worries. I will post the link later today in the HD FaceBook Group and on Twitter).

Music is Heart Language


DanceHave you ever been in a crummy mood and it changed instantly when you heard a great song?

Music speaks to your heart without words getting in the way.

Bonus:  I created a Heart Dancing Playlist! These are songs that speak to me, make me want to dance or that lift up my mood when I am having a bad moment.  What songs would you add that speak to your heart? Please let me know in the comments below.Email box

Do You Know Your Why?


Born andWhy

Wouldn’t answering the “Why” question in your life make a difference?

Would knowing that your value can never be destroyed change your perspective?

Would discovering your authentic voice make you feel seen?

All of this is possible – when you live from your heart and connect with your Source.

Don’t believe me?

Then please join me on Thursday, March 5, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. cst for the Heart Dancing Radio Show. (go to AwakenedRadio.net or use the TuneIn app to listen live).

Heart Dancing Steps is a brand new concept that will be introduced for the first time on the radio show. It is a life philosophy that leads you to your authentic self, one step at a time. I am going to share more information during the radio and you will have an opportunity to call in live and ask questions.

That is how we dance together – to the heartbeat of life!

To receive a free copy of the ebook that teaches the lessons in  more detail, please click here and share your email address.  After you share your best email, you will be included on the list to receive each lesson, as it is rolled out…before anyone else!

Aren’t you ready to discover why you are here?

Beyond Fear, Lies Freedom


Some wise person defined “fear” as “false evidence appearing real.” I have always felt that this definition did not go far Lightenough to capture the depths that fear can take you away from your authentic self.

Remember the last time you were immersed in fear? Was your heart racing and your breathing shallow? What was the most immediate thing on your mind – to get away or to make it stop?

Fear is the ego’s way to convince you to play small. The ego is that judgmental part of your mind that tells you everything you did wrong or why you will never be enough. Fear is the ego’s tool and it cuts like a knife, right through your self-esteem.

Fear can never destroy your authentic self. It just distracts you from it.

Your authentic self is always there, resting and waiting for your acknowledgement and acceptance. Which you can only do when you are no longer fearful.

When you glimpse the life you could have on the other side of fear – suddenly you become fearless.

If you knew you were 100% supported in everything you did, wouldn’t that make a difference in your choices?

When there is no fear, there is only freedom. To create a life you love.

Your Life is Like a Cruise Ship


Cruise shipWhen you go on a cruise, you enter a different world – focused on fun, sun, and relaxation. Your digital connections are left behind and it’s only you and your fellow travelers sharing the experience. You can be as active or sedentary as you want; you can eat all day or not; you can even play sports, work out, or dance until the wee hours of the morning.

Life is about what you choose to create.

While you are busy on the ship, you sometimes get so caught up in your creation that you forget you are on a large ship in the middle of the ocean. The behind the scenes view that supports your ability to create is not readily apparent, until you focus on it. Then you begin to notice…

  • the staff who makes the delicious meals, cleans your room every day and turns down your bed;
  • the crew who make sure that the boat is stable, even in rough seas; and
  • the navigator who ensures that the ship reaches it’s destination, even with 40 + mph cross winds.

Life is like a cruise ship. The surface of your life may have waves or rough days; winds may blow you off course, but if you know your destination you can make adjustments and continue to move forward.

And just like the ocean supports the ship, the Universe supports you. The ocean does not discriminate or treat some ships differently than others. The Universe is the same – it doesn’t matter whether you are wealthy or poor, young or old, male or female.  The behind-the-scenes support is always there, no matter who you are or what ship you happen to be sailing on.

If you knew you were 100% supported in everything you did, wouldn’t that make a difference in your choices?

When there is no fear, there is only freedom. To create a life you love.

Please join me this Thursday, February 12, 2015, as I explore these ideas and so much more on the Heart Dancing Radio Show. My special guest is Ashley Sibille, who has created CALYL (Create a Life You Love). (The details of how to listen live are shown below in the Dancing Girl graphic.)

We are going to dance on the waves of how to create your best life!

How to Find Peace


You are a creator, whether you acknowledge it or not. What do you create? Your very own-customized-made-to-order version of reality.

But what if your view is filtered by stories from your past that cast a different meaning on the events before you? Would that create a conflict with another person who saw the same thing?

Of course! It happens all the time. Most people work through their differences but there may be lingering anger, frustration or regret that surfaces at a later time.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be at peace in every moment, knowing that what seems to be happening to you is actually the best thing possible? To be happy with yourself no matter what was going on in your life, because you know that you are worthy? That as you travel down your life’s path, to know that All is Good?

I knHD Adow a wonderful young woman who lives just that way – happy, peaceful and full of love. Jenny Grace will share her life philosophy on the Heart Dancing Radio Show, Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. cst.

Listen live at http://www.AwakenedRadio.net or on the TuneIn app on your tablet or smartphone.

Please join us as we discuss life, love and building sand castles!

Are You Ready to See & Break Free?


WhatyouSeeWe were over at friends watching the Dallas Cowboys v. Green Bay Packers game last Sunday. The now famous “catch-incomplete pass” generated a lot of discussion, especially since we are Cowboys fans. Despite the call by the official (let’s not go there), it reminded me that everyone sees our world through the filter of our stories.

We saw a completed pass (his elbow and knee hit the ground while he still had obvious possession of the ball). The referee saw something different.  Same event, different interpretations.

How does that apply to you? You may have stories from your past that hold you back from your best self. When the same or similar situation comes up again, if you tell yourself the old story, you will see the present moment though the lens of your past interpretation. And miss what is right in front you!

On Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 9:00 cst on the Heart Dancing Radio show, (listen at AwakenedRadio.net or on the Tunein app), I will share a simple process that can help you reframe stories from your past that are holding you back. It’s quick, easy to remember and works immediately!

My guest on the radio show this week knows all about breaking free of the emotional baggage you have been carrying around. Michelle Jeffrey is a motivational speaker, self-empowerment & personal development teacher, Integrative Coach, Infinite Possibilities Trainer, and thought leader for the next generation.

Heart Dancing Radio


I have jumped off a cliff (that’s what it feels like) and agreed to host my very own, one hour radio show! The details are below but I wanted to share a little bit about my guest tonight.

Havalynn Russell is one of those people who makes you feel better as soon as you hear her voice or you are in the same room. She raises the positive energy of everyone around her. Her love of people and “in the moment” awareness of connection is the melody that plays in her life. Compassion and acceptance are two words that describe her, but words cannot capture her luminous spirit.

To help you see what I am describing, please take a minute and watch one of these short videos.

Please join me tonight as Havalynn share’s her journey from darkness to light. You will walk away feeling lighter, happier and maybe even dancing!
