When you think you flopped ~ Gremlins & what else is possible

I’ve always dreamed of being a singer. Truth is, over the years I’ve gone back and forth with myself about whether my voice is ‘good enough’ or ‘really good’ or ‘something worthy of sharing with others through singing.’ I remember in my early 20’s I was hanging out with some hip-hop artists here in Buffalo. I just happened to be at their home studio one day and they needed a female to vocalize a hook for them. I said ‘I’ll do it!’ even though I’d never done anything like that before. I did it because I knew that somewhere within me, I desired to share my singing voice with the world, and also, that some part of me knew that my voice was worthy of sharing. As I stood in that closet, mic in front of me, door closed, the producer told me through the headphones what to sing and how to sing it. As I began to sing, my voice went in and out of tune. What I wanted to express, how I wanted to sound, how I could HEAR the sound in my heart wasn’t translating as the air came out of my lungs and mouth into the … Continue reading

Need to build your spiritual muscles? No gym membership fees required for this workout!

I’ve always wanted the life of my dreams to come quickly…when I see something that I like and desire to have it, I want it NOW dammit!!  This is how I’ve shown up in much of my life.  Patience has been one of those muscles I’ve had to learn to strengthen and develop through the years.  And let me tell ya…it hasn’t always been easy.  However, life presents countless opportunities to flex and tone this muscle and this is exactly what I want to share with you today. Building spiritual muscles is very much like building physical muscles.  You’ve got to show up and engage in a practice day after day.  When you first get started and feel your muscles burning you may want to give up and give in.  Then there are times you don’t even want to go to the gym or yoga class or for a run; however, you know how good you’ll feel once you work your body out, burn some calories and strengthen your core.  At times your muscles will burn, you might feel tired and want to give up and sometimes you might even feel like throwing up!  But you keep at it because … Continue reading

Vacillating between the old and the new..

I am noticing how I have been vacillating between the old and new ways as of late.  January has been a very powerful and at times highly challenging month for me.  I have noticed that there are times when I am anchored into my empowered mature adult self and then there are the times when I am simply giving my power away.. easily, to anything or anyone that comes along.  I have been feeling especially challenged with parenting lately and notice that this old tendency to people please is disempowering my relationship with myself and my daughter.  When I am anchored into people pleasing behavior I realize that I am not listening to or tuning into my own divine guidance.. I am choosing not to listen to my intuition.. and then things go ‘array’.. or at least that is how it seems.  I know that when I choose not to listen.. and when I am coming from a false center (people pleasing in order to feel worthy and of value), I create more challenges in my experience.  I know that within these challenges are tremendous opportunities for growth and transformation..  On the flip side, I am clear that when I … Continue reading
