When Soulmates Unite

If you were to take a step back and consider your ideal relationship, what would it look like? Would you see an inspiring relationship that’s full of laughter, passion, compassion, faith and support? Would you see a magical partnership that’s overflowing with love, tolerance, acceptance, trust and mutual respect? What qualities do you long for in a relationship? What qualities do you long for in a soulmate? If those qualities presented themselves in a partner tomorrow, would you be able to embrace that partner? Most of us think we could. But, the truth is, most of us are searching or… 


Sacred Space for Love

We lead busy lives; lives that take us away from our babies, our loves, our families and our friends — lives that take us away from ourselves. But there are ways to stay connected — simple, yet meaningful things we can do to place our priority back on what matters: our connections to ourselves and to love. In my home, my son and I have created a morning ritual for this deep, connection time — we call it our “morning hug” but it’s so much more than that. It’s a time when the clock seems to stop and the only… 


Safe Souls & Our Evolution

[raw, vulnerable, unedited] As I’ve evolved through life, I’ve come to realize how much more I can evolve based on the people with whom I surround myself with. Prior to the beginning of my personal journey of learning to love myself, I spent most of my life surrounded by people who needed me and people for whom I needed to be needed. I spent most of my life depending on others to validate me not just as a human being but as a human being who was worthy of being loved. And as a result, I spent most of my… 


Choosing to Love

The power of our love is ours. When people do things that make them easy to hate, we have two paths we can take: 1) hate them, ignore them, resent them, shame them or 2) forgive them, have compassion for them, try to understand them (empathy) and offer love to them — the kind of love that’s given freely and offered without conditions on needing to receive their love back in return. I choose to love the people who do things that would otherwise make them easy to hate. And I choose love them because that’s what makes me feel… 


Dreams Coming True

So often our wildest dreams are trying to come true all around us. But we miss them. We forsake them. We ignore them. We deny them. We miss the magical moments they can bring forth and into our lives. And it’s not because we endeavor to, it’s because we tend to hold on so tight to controlling how the dream shows up that we fail to recognize it when it appears. Or we forsake the dream’s presence — taking it for granted — because we don’t recognize it based on how it makes us feel. But all this can change…. 


Pain & Capacity for Love

Pain is here to heal us. Our pain shows us where our wounds are and the areas within us that still need healing.  When we deny our pain, we are denying our full capacity for love — for pain takes up the space where love could otherwise reside. For most of my life, I denied my pain. I hid it behind my addictions: drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, TV, work, and empty/bad relationships. I chased after bad relationships and rolled out a welcome mat for poor treatment. All so that I didn’t have to truly feel. I blamed others for my pain… 


Love, My Love

So often we deny our full capacity to love and it’s not because we don’t want to fully experience love, it’s because at some point in our life we learned that love is hard, it’s scary, it hurts and it leaves us. And yet, we still desire it. As human beings, we actually NEED love. But we’ve lost the ability to fully receive it. We shut it off. Shut it down. Push people away. Hiding behind our addictions, our faith and/or the remembrance — the sting — of our pain. All so that we never have to hurt as much… 


Holding Space for Others

Holding space. It’s a phrase we tend to use a lot but what does it really mean and why does it matter? Holding space means that you are giving up on the need to change someone’s life. You’re giving up on the desire to try and control someone’s outcome. You’re allowing people to be who they are and where they are in life and you’re allowing yourself to deal with whatever feelings YOU have about the choices they’re making. Holding space means that you trust that whatever the outcome, it’s the outcome that is meant to be. (Even if it’s… 


Connecting With Those Who Have Departed

[unedited, raw, vulnerable]   Have you ever lost a loved one — either by death or the person leaving your life in some way? If so, have you ever had a moment when tears come to your eyes and you are instantly overcome with emotion and with a deep longing, a deep missing, a deep sorrow, a deep affection and pain for this person?  A deep wish for just one more hug . . . one more laugh . . . one more moment in the world together?  Just. One. More. This happens to me often and it is happening… 


Video Series: Understanding Hate – Through Tolerance, Love & Forgiveness

December 21, 2017 In my line of work, I get to work with a lot of ordinary people who are trying to do extraordinary things, like learning to love themselves or learning how to find their voice, their truth, their happiness, or their purpose in life. I also get the pleasure of getting to know and making an impact on people like Johnny, a man covered with 33 swastika tattoos who’s on a journey of learning how to love. Johnny found me three days after the incidents in Charlottesville, VA — he literally walked up to me on the street… 


Loving Someone You Hate

Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to love someone you hate? I mean, why the hell would anyone want to do that?! Well, read on. There’s a really important reason why. Loving someone you hate. It’s probably one of the most difficult concepts to grasp. And probably one that seems illogical. Why on earth, would someone want to love a person they hate? And what does “loving them” mean? Let’s deal with the first question first. Loving a person you hate means you desire peace over personal conflict. It means you desire freedom over self-imposed restraint. And it means… 


A Goodbye Love Letter

[unedited, raw, vulnerable] November 13, 2017 Dear love, It’s been two days since I last said goodbye to you and earlier I found myself missing you already. In fact, as soon as I realized it was time to say goodbye, I found myself thinking of you, longing for you, and wishing, yet again, that we could have a better relationship than we do; wishing things were different between us. You see, the role you’ve played in my life has been purposeful, meaningful, and at times necessary. I had no other means by which to process my world, sit with my pain,…
