I. Love. This. Movie.
Not just because I love Hawaii and the Hawaiian culture. Granted, I’ve been to Kauai three times and would happily go back. I could even see me and my husband living in a tiny house on a plot of land with a garden and fresh water to drink from the stream out back….sigh.
Moana is the poster girl for self-empowerment and following your bliss. Her grandmother the epitome of unconditional love and role model for self-love. They show such a beautiful balance of beauty and strength in this film.
The call of our bliss, like the call of the ocean for Moana, is undeniable and will remain until we heed it. Our inner compass will guide us to it again and again, no matter what we do to go in another direction, it will point us toward where our heart wishes us to be every time.
This may present as obstacles along our path, of bumps or blocks along the road. They are not to be disliked or fought against, they are merely little loving nudges from the universe to move in a different direction. They are signs that we are “meant” to be doing something other than that thing.
Human/ego tendency is to be upset when we don’t get what we want. Another way to look at it is that there is something else, something perhaps we couldn’t even imagine for ourselves or maybe we have but don’t think we’re worthy of or strong enough to go for it, something that is waiting out there, beyond the reef and we are meant to go find it. To move through the fear of the turbulent ocean, of the possibility of unknown dangers, knowing we will be guided and guides will show up for us if we are courageous enough to take the adventure.
Much Love and Mahalo to you! xox
So, yah. Today started out rough.
It seems like all the little things that I perceive as challenges have built upon one another and feel like a mountain to climb…and changing my perspective, focusing on the good, begin grateful…is tough.
Life, with all of its requirements and demands are weighing on me and I’m finding it difficult to shift my energy and let go, to allow for what is to be as it is. I “know”, in my brain, what I “need” to do to feel better but I feel unable to do it. It’s like my feet are stuck in mud and I can’t get them out.
It’s a struggle.
How do I let go? How do I relinquish the struggle?
(Pause…breathe in deeply….exhale slowly…)
I do it by releasing the desire to hold on. Like exhaling slowly, releasing breath to the space around me, I release the tension that represents the resistance and allow…allow for what is to be. Allow for everyone and everything to be. Allow for me to just be, even for a moment. To have compassion for and love for me, feeling the way I’m feeling, not wishing to change it, just allowing. And allowing. And allowing….to keep allowing and breathing as the seconds tick by.
I’m already feeling better. More centered. All is well, no matter what.
Love to you.
A beautiful piece of wisdom shared…enjoy the read and what it may do for you xoxo
“There is a time for everything and everything in its time.” Whether this is on the grand scale of our soul’s eternal journey or the unique and beautiful journeys we take within our human lives, we have created and co-created awakening moments with mathematical precision. This article is about how I have navigated my own awakening, in the hope that it helps others to do the same. My journey thus far has guided me to understand that love, most importantly self-love, is the key to unlocking our true potentials.
Along the path of discovering my own potential, there are three steps that I use to come to a place of greater self-love. They are: First, to accept myself where I am in that moment. Second, to like myself in that moment. Third, to love who I am in that moment. In order to do that, I had…

I don’t know about the rest of you but I do life better sometimes with instructions. When I was initially going through my healing process many years ago, I didn’t know how to live, like physically day-to-day live in this world. I knew I, we all are, love but didn’t know how to embody that love.
So, I meditated. I sat in silence and connected with myself. Then, I created the Twelve Principles. They are what I used/use as my daily guide for living. They are, when practiced, what help to recreate the being of love I was in the afterlife.
Living here is an art, a beautiful expression of the divine pure light energy we are. Practicing the Twelve Principles is how I create my own artful living. The Principles are:
Live In Awareness
When my focus is taken off the many distractions around me and placed on these simple principles, my life flows with such ease and with so much more love. I’ll be writing more about them…but they are in my book ‘I Died And Learned How To Live’. They are the embodiment of my NDE.
Much Love to You All! xox

Originally written several years ago….I wanted to share this post again in light of learning about an ER physician Dr. Anoop Kumar who published a book which highlights aspects of practicing medicine, of caring for others, we too often overlook and do not include in our daily care of patients..here’s his website…please check it out. It’s “good medicine“. Love to you all!
In a busy ER it can be a challenge to slow down and really be present for people. Let’s face it, being a patient in the ER it’s not really our best moment. We’re vulnerable, often scared and unsure of what’s going to happen. There’s a lot of fear. In my life before, my tolerance level was low. Now, I’m able to function from the point of view of the people I care for and I care for everyone very much. For me, the people I take care of are people, not patients. They are beings of love and light and I am connected to every one of them. Compassion and love are my point of view. May you have a beautiful, healthy day! xox
How often have you said to yourself: “I really need to do xyz” or “I really need to stop doing xyz.” Speaking for myself, thousands of times. The “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts” put pressure on us and imply that yucky feeling word…guilt.
Each and every time we think and/or say those words we add to the negative expression of ourselves. That need to do or don’t do, the very thought of those words causes negative feelings in the body. In that moment, there’s an immediate feeling of not being who or what we are supposed to be, whether we’ve set the expectation or someone else has.
The thing is, we are always everything we are supposed to be all the time, in every moment. There is never a second that goes by where we are anything but.
It’s about changing the energy around the “need” to do something to one of gentle intention, the feeling of having a choice about the matter rather than a pressure to accomplish whatever it is you’re wanting to accomplish. Sometimes we may not have a “choice”, it just has to be done. That’s fine, but take that energy you’d usually create as pressure to do it and soften it, love it and allow it to flow through you and into what it is you’re doing. That is acting out the vibration of love.
So, go wash those dishes, get ready for work, get that degree and take the time to change your thoughts and feelings around how you do those things. It’s your choice. Much Love xox
