Do you do enough uni-tasking?

I am a maximizer, which means I love making the most of moments. Oftentimes, this comes in very handy and allows me to truly make the most of this precious gift of life.

However, I’ve been reminded, yet again and again and again, that when it comes to communing with the most sacred space within me, that sacred space that is connected to the sacred that is beyond and bigger than me, that sacred space where I know the truest and most lasting joy, there is NO replacement for uni-tasking.

So, as much as I love the idea of walking meditation where I can meditate + get fresh air + get exercise + center myself + walk our dogs 😀 (which is also amazing and valuable!), I have had some utterly mystical communions with my innermost self recently, filled with insights and an almost ecstatic peace. And I know these can only happen in the absolute stillness and in the space of deepest listening, receiving, and allowing a Love that is greater to emerge.

Here is a little peek at my meditation room and where I go to come back home sweet home to the joy, the connection, and the inner knowing that is already here, just waiting for us all.

Finding Your Joy Tribe: When 1 + 1 = 3+

I met this sparkling gem of a human a few years ago at an entrepreneur’s business training we were both attending in California, and she’s become one of the most special treasures in my life! When we first met, I had this knowing in my heart that I wanted to get to know her better and am soooo grateful for her bright, sparkling presence in my life!

Do you reach out to those people who make your heart smile? Are you surrounding yourself with people who inspire you?

Although we humans have an extraordinary ability to generate joy from WITHIN, sharing life with others who support us in growing into who we were born to become and who are also committed to cultivating and spreading joy means 1 + 1 = 3+ 🙂

I am so happy and thankful to be visiting her in Santa Monica right now!

And I am so grateful to be in this joy community with all of YOU!

How to Reignite Inspiration!

I am SO grateful for INSPIRATION! I love the aliveness of feeling inspired. I love creating, connecting, and contributing from a flow of genuine inspiration. Because I LOVE inspiration so much, I am continually paying close attention to what inspires me and intentionally filling my life with those things. When you’re feeling stagnant, stuck, or deflated, there are ways to begin identifying your own sources of inspiration so you can breathe vitality back into life! Here are some ideas to get started… – What places most inspire you to be in (nature, coffee shops, museums, yoga studios, etc.)? – What time of going to bed and waking up are most conducive to inspiration for you? – What colors are most inspiring for you to both surround yourself with and wear? – What music inspires you? – What are the most inspiring ways to help and spread joy to others? – What people inspire you to be around? – What do you feel inspired from reading or watching? – What does it inspire you to talk about? – What is a new place or activity you can try? – What kind of movement generates inspiration in you? – What food feels inspiring to prepare and eat? There are some pathways to inspiration that I find really common — like actively striving towards meaningful dreams and goals, using our strengths and gifts to do what we love, witnessing kindness in others, seeing someone stretch beyond what they thought was possible, getting quiet…

My Go-To Word When I’m Feeling Sluggish

What to do when you’re feeling tired?

While it is sometimes a signal that your body is calling for deep stillness and rest, and you may feel “too tired to do anything,” it is often a sign that it is actually the PERFECT TIME to ACTIVATE your energy. I just noticed my energy start to drop, and I want to have a wonderful date night with my hubby and be fully present and full of ALIVENESS. I know that whenever I take a run in the fresh outside air, I always feel a renewal of vitality!

One of my personal favorite words when I am feeling sluggish is: ACTIVATE! I then think of some way that I can MOVE the energy and increase the flow of life force! There are MANY ways to ACTIVATE. May you find what works most wonderfully for YOU!

Now I am off on my run with three fluffy pups leading the way 😉

Abundant and loving blessings of joyful ACTIVATION! XO 

Living in the Land of Possibilities

Here I am with my awesome hubby and son visiting the place where the Wright Brothers took flight for the first time in human history. Such an inspiring place to be!

It’s amazing what happens with passionate and purpose-driven perseverance. It took committing and recommitting thousands of times to their greater vision and dream of finding a way to fly. And, in 1903, they did it!

I absolutely LOVE and am so grateful for stories of humans who live in the land of possibilities, and I dedicate my life to living there with them! 🙂

We only ever discover what’s possible when we open to believing in what’s possible!

Reiki Training & the Joy of Helping People Awaken Their Healing Gifts

My joy = co-creating heart-centered community, celebrating the magic and wonder of life with others, seeing the unique healing gifts inside of everyone, being a lifelong student, making life meaningful, and having the absolute joy and honor of sharing what I’ve learned over the years to serve and support others!

Here is a collage from the Reiki training I was so blessed to teach this weekend! Look at those gorgeous lights!

Why Joy is a Practical Priority

Do you postpone joy because you feel like you have too many other things to get done first?


Joy is an incredibly practical priority. When we live in joy, we are more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, kind, generous, productive, inspired, healthy, flexible, adaptable, team-oriented, successful, intelligent, connected, and insightful.

In other words, when you shift into a joy state and positive mindset, you can get MORE done with greater effectiveness and ease.

I am just popping in with lots of loving support to prioritize joy this week! XO
