emotions dictate lives

How your emotions make (or break) your success

“Bad things always happen to me.” “I was born under a bad sign.” “What’s the point? Nothing gets better anyway.” Yikes! You may know folks that talk like this once in a while (or even all the time). They are definitely no fun to hang around. They’re giant vacuums that suck the life right out …

A to Z Guide: Getting into a high vibration zone (and fast!)

You know those days. We’ve all had them. Those days that start off bad and just get worse. Perhaps you woke up cranky from lack of sleep.

Make 2020 the year that rocks your world

Do all your years kind of blend together into one big blob? You wonder where the heck the time goes, and when all those goals you set at the beginning of each year might actually come to fruition.

Reiki explained: Reiki benefits and FAQ

My arms hurt like hell a few years back. So bad, I could barely bend them without wincing in agony. I had double tendonitis in both elbows, most likely caused by hours spent every day on my computer sitting in some weird, cramped-up position. I tried copper cuffs, healing balms, special exercises and all kinds …

surrender let go let god

How surrender saved my life (twice)

We’re rough, tough and ready for action, right? So why the heck would we EVER surrender to anything? Surrender brings to mind some whimpering, beat-up thing waving a ragged white flag. That’s not a pretty picture. But neither is the reality you get from fighting something you know you can’t beat. Or having your fingernails …
