This is always an exciting time for me. It’s a time of reflection, review and remembrance. 

This year I’m reflecting on the events of May 19th when I was given what I now call “The Be Love Principles.” This experience was truly life changing for me and you’ll hear more about it in 2019. I’m reviewing my business and what worked and what didn’t. I’m celebrating my successes and noting things to change. And I’m remembering, with gratitude, the people who impacted me this year. Not all those “impacts” were pleasant, by the way. But each unpleasant situation gave me an opportunity to realize I was being called to be more loving, compassionate and kind. Not always an easy lesson, but it has become my life’s work.

I’m also remembering those who were here to celebrate last year and this year are not. Life is indeed short, and I understand, more than ever, we’re here to live love in the way we’re being guided.

One more thing that I understand. How the new year unfolds for me is up to ME. Oh, I love the numerology, astrology and other predictions that I see this time of year. Who doesn’t want a sneak peak into the future? But I understand that nothing, not what the President does, the stock market index, how my husband behaves, my health, what money comes in…NOTHING is as important as my thoughts about each of those things. 

As I do my best, day by day, to keep my thoughts dedicated to love and to being the presence of love for myself and others, my experience of the world is more at peace. No matter what the TV news reports.

In addition to the success review I discussed in the last blog, I’ll be asking myself these questions as we ring in 2019:

  • What is most important to me now?
  • How can I live more deeply into that truth?
  • What new habit(s) do I want to anchor into the new year to support me?
  • How open am I to allowing spirit to guide my actions? 
  • And how can I be even more open?

I am so grateful for your support and surround you in love, light and the truth of who you are.
Happy New Year!

How Was Your 2018?

I know what you’re thinking.

“Here it comes…another lame request to ‘review your year.’”  

Nope. Well, sort of. 

Yes, I’m suggesting you review your year but in a very different way. Ask great questions, be curious and really relish the last 12 months. I trust you’ll remember the times you screwed up, wished you’d made another choice or never started that project that was doomed from the start. I hope you’ll learn the lessons that have been presented to you from these challenges and look at them as a way to grow. 

What I want you to do now is spend as much – or more – time reviewing your success!

What were your greatest successes of the year? I encourage you to ask yourself questions like: 

  • What made the most positive impact on me this year?
  • How did I make a positive impact on others? At work? Home?
  • My biggest success?
  • Where did I shine this year? 
  • What brought me the most joy? 
  • How was I of service? 
  • How did I grow personally, professionally? 
  • Where and when was I the most loving? 
  • As a result of this past year, what do I want to do more of next year?

While we’re all quick to remember our failures, I find we seldom spend significant time identifying, understanding and celebrating our wins! And while you’re at it, be sure to remind your loved ones, friends and colleagues how they contributed to your year. Help them remember their acts of love, encouragement and support. Perhaps you’ll even suggest they do their own year end success review.

Find some quiet time to reflect on your year, acknowledge your successes and be grateful for the opportunity to be the love that you are.

May 19, 2018 is a day I will never forget. 

It's the day I received a message from God, Source, Universe, Love...whatever you want to call the intelligent, expansive, creative energy that creates galaxies and makes the tides come in and out. 

So what was I told? In essence, I was told to "be love" and given specific principles on how to do that:

  • greet everyone with an open heart without an agenda
  • see the divine in everyone and everything
  • forgive quickly, completely and unconditionally

And one more thing. I was told to remember "you (meaning we) are the light."

To be honest, I struggled with this experience all summer. I've thought of little else in the days since May 19th. These "Be Love Principles" have become a part of me as I strive to incorporate them into my everyday life. I often fall short. But I keep my focus on these and understand it's a process. Some days a looooong process.

I’ve started to talk about my experience and you can hear the story in Part 1 of ‘How to Be Love” on my recent TV show “Heart-Centered Success.” You can see it on YouTube HERE. I also write about it in my article published in the book “Magic and Miracles.”  

You'll be hearing a lot more about this soon. These "Be Love Principles" are ready to be birthed into the world in a bigger way. 

As this December gets busier, I invite you to remember this first principle. "Greet everyone with an open heart, without an agenda." What would that look like for you? How could you open your heart to others, without judgement? With no expectations? Oh, and remember a very important point. Vital, really. 

The very first person you could greet with an open heart, without an agenda is you.

Be the love you are,
