Oops, I did it again... Saturn Return

Oops, I did it again… Saturn Return

Welcome back Saturn. In case you don’t follow astrology, Saturn has returned. To me, astrology is like a handbook for life. Many times I feel I’m wandering aimlessly through my life making irrational, self-destructive decisions, worrying and holding on to people, ideas, and possessions I shouldn’t. I have had moments lately where I put my […]

Stop Beating Yourself Up! How You Talk To Yourself Matters

How do you talk to and about yourself? Are you lazy, a procrastinator, an idiot, fat, ugly, stupid, lame, a bitch, out of shape? Is this what you tell yourself? What you’ve told yourself in the past?

The Miracle of Happiness

The Miracle of Happiness

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali provide a thorough explanation of meditation — the purpose, means, obstacles.

No Sugar Challenge

No Sugar Challenge

I hear all the time, “I eat so healthy, but I can’t loose weight.” I want to say 9 out of 10 times, but I can’t because my experience has been 10 out of 10 times, it’s the amount of sugar people eat. It’s going through the day, mindlessly, grabbing all types of sugar food […]

2014

2014

Year 2014 It is hard to not be overly impressed by all the stellar activity during 2014.
