Beautiful Spirit

~ Angelic Beauty ~

The Angelic realm is one of the highest vibrations that we as humans can connect with, and every so often there is a communication beween the earthly and Angelic realms. The communication may be spontaneous or it may be deliberate. Either way it is a path to peace and divine guidance. If you resonate with angelic images, feelings or traditions and want to connect with the Angelic realms it is quite simple.
The first thing you have to do is to completely relax, and I mean completely relax without falling asleep. Then in that relaxed state let go of your ego, give it love and let it go. Once in that state ask for the angels to come and guide you and allow the messages or feelings to come.
The angle's messages may be as clear as either a vision, an auditory experience, a strong feeling or as it is with me, a combination of a physical and emotional sensation that is clear and deliberate.

Dedicate Yourself

As many of my clients know I am a big believer in the idea that there is freedom in discipline. When we make a choice to stay dedicated to something and stick with whatever that may be, such as exercise, meditation or new ways of thinking, that consistency can give us a freedom.
I say all this to tell you about a movement that is worth your discipline.
I was recently introduced to www.ITakeTheVow.com by my good friend Chelsea. As soon as I checked it out, I knew that I needed to share this with all my readers. I Take The Vow is from Deepak Chopra and his organization, the Alliance for a New Humanity and in the tradition of Martin Luther King Jr., I Take The Vow is a simple but profound concept. Besides taking the Vow the site has some great resources on personal and global transformation. Check it out :) If you so choose to take the vow, freedom for all humanity can not only be a possibility but a reality...

"I take the vow of non-violence in my thoughts, my speech and my actions"

A huge paradigm shift is taking place in the world...
are you on board?

Beautiful Music

I can't stop telling everyone I know about my new favorite website and application...


This site has been around for a while but I just discovered it. Here's what Pandora does; it is a huge music database that creates radio stations for you when you input an artist or a title of a song. For example one of my favs right now is my Petula Clark station. It will first play a song by he
r then it will start to play music similar to that style. You can even give a particular song a thumbs up or thumbs down and from that info, Pandora will either avoid similar songs or look for ones that you like. I have many stations from Linkin Park to Claudine Longet! And once you have a few stations you can do a quick mix and it will shuffle the stations you choose. By the way did I tell you It's FREE! And you can download it as an application on your IPHONE!! I LOVE IT!!!

Beautiful Words...


How often do you actually think about the words that you are saying? Words are extremely powerful tools, but the problem is that most of the time we are walking around using our words unconsciously. My clients know that one of my favorite unconscious words we use is "should". How many times a day do you say out loud or even more importantly to yourself
"I should...."?
First of all, who says you "should"? We tend to say that word as if there is some invisible bad guy standing behind us saying "You know, you should ______" and usually that blank is filled in by some task that you think you don't want to do.
And here's the rub; many times those things that we have made shoulds are really things, that on some level we want. For example "I should exercise" when in fact in many ways we want to exercise because we know that if we move our body in some way, we feel better.
So actually we turn what we want into a should... I am here to gently tell you..."STOP THAT!" It is one of those unconscious buggers that will keep us further and further away from our peace, happiness and dreams. I will say that this isn't always the situation, but the majority of the time it is. Take care of yourself...
For the next couple weeks stay conscious to every time you say "I should ______" and then do your best to replace it with "I want ____" Then listen to your heart and only then take the action.
When we become conscious of the words we are saying to ourselves and out loud then we can even begin to shift our lives.

Dear God

Speaking of prayer...
When is the last time you prayed? Or have you ever prayed? In many traditions it is said that Prayer is the medium of miracles and I believe that to be true. What is meant by that is that the act of prayer brings us to out of the
new headerrealm of lower ego based energies to the higher realms of infinite possibilities where what your mind believed impossible is suddenly possible and who couldn't use a little miracle...or two...?
There are many of us who don't tend to pray for a couple of reasons; first that we don't have a specific prayer memorized, so we don't pray and secondly that we equate prayer with a specific religious practice of which we are not a member.
Well, I am here to tell you that Prayer can be done a million and one ways and doesn't necessarily have to have any religious component. Think of prayer as your inner dialogue with the Universe and it's endless and bountiful energy. The Universe is responding to your intention and your vibration and not necessarily your words.
So, for instance if when you are walking in the park and you feel close to nature and to yourself, share that with the Universe with a prayer of thanks. Or, if you are stuck in traffic, late for an important appointment and just plain pissed, be honest with the Universe by saying "I'm pissed (or something that conveys that vibration LOL!) and then pray for patience or pray to move all the traffic!
But, I have to say my personal favorite is to just pray all the time.... I often catch myself saying "Dear God...Dear God...Dear God..." I don't know why I do that, but I think it's because I know when I stay in touch with the Universal energies that are swirling above, below, inside, outside and around me, life is somehow easier and in that ease comes miracles...

It makes the World go around.....

How much $ would make you do a happy dance?
How much $ would make you begin to feel relaxed?
How much $ would you need to live your dreams?

I ask you this because even though money on it's own is neutral,
the fact is that in our world $ = freedom
and I want you to be free!

The subject of money takes up so much of our psychic, emotional and physical energy.
None of us are immune to the effect of it being in or out of our lives. Am I right? Open your mind to how you see money and ask yourself this:

If money was your lover and you were in an intimate relationship, what would that relationship look like?

Picture that...Feel that... Would you and Mr. Money have a loving, fun and productive relationship? Would you and Ms Money have an abusive, fearful and destructive relationship? Or is it the type of relationship where you are always getting "just enough" and craving for more? This concept may sound strange or funny but I believe it to be extremely powerful so please consider this question very seriously.

Think about it, if your are in a situation where you are always struggling, instead of flowing with money, how are you ever going to create more of it unless you are honest and start to shift your relationship?
I am here to tell you from personal experience that until you change your relationship with money, your situation will not change.
If you have not thought about it before, take the time to consider what type of relationship you have with money.
This could be the beginning of a beautiful relationship!

Paul Arden - Humor and Insight

When I was getting ready to make the leap from employee to solo entrepreneur and business owner just a year ago, my friend Linda gave me these two books and they gave me that extra little boost of confidence to finally take the leap. All of Paul Arden's books are absolutely amazing in their ability to go to the core of an issue with humor and insight. I really like these because he takes concepts that we all know and he turns them on their head which makes you stop and re-think what you are doing. They are especially perfect for entrepreneurs or people who are needing a new way to look at business. Who knows - they may give you
the inspiration you are needing to make a change in your life.

See you in the clouds!

Lovely Leo

There are so many people who have influenced my life and my work over the years. Leo Buscaglia is right at the top of that list.
I was quite young when I first saw him lecture on PBS and from then on I have been a huge fan. It is rare that we see people so committed to spreading LOVE. Sadly, he passed way, but his whole life and career was based on teaching people to LOVE. What higher calling is there than that? And to be able to spread his message with such passion and conviction makes his message even that more effective. He will do something very simple;
Make you feel good... If you have never heard of Leo Buscaglia, or even if you have, check out the video below and if you like it, watch the other 5 parts for the full lecture.

Beautiful Farrah Hair

I am going to show my age here, but who cares...?! As a boy I grew up with Charlie's Angels (When Drew Barrymore was in ET and had no idea she would one day try and emulate those icons of style) photos all over my bedroom. I would collect every, and I mean every, picture of them that I could get my teenage hands on. I could go on and on..., but maybe another time.
In Honor of the great Farrah who's battle with cancer was courageous and heart breaking , I'm here to tell you that Charlie's Angels hair (or at least the flavor) is back!! Flat and overly straightened hair is done!! Wooo Hoooo! Even Farrah never succumbed to the flat trend!

Look in any Allure, Vogue or Elle magazines and
you can see bigger, looser and overall much sexier hair.
These elements are so many things that I love about hair. They all subliminally say:
"I'm here, I'm sexy and I don't have to make my hair "perfect"! "
The idea is not to make it look too "done" or too big. If after you are done you have visions of Prom 1984 in the South...it's too big!
What ever the length of your hair you can create the Angel flavor too.Try this easy steps:
If your hair is really curly or frizzy just tame it with a little polisher product like Frizz Ease drops, or if you have straighter hair, use (you have not heard this word in a while....) mousse! (I love Mousse Forte by Sebastian) Blow with round brush for a medium bend /curl in hair all over. When completely dry, tease a little all over but not to the extreme using a paddle brush.
Then spray with Shaper Hair Spray by Sebastian (MY FAVORITE!) and shape with fingers till your inner Farrah starts to appear...
Long Live Mousse!

Read My Lips

I learned this from makeup artist Bobbi Brown and I definitely agree:

In general, when choosing lipsticks that make an impact, you want to try as best you can to go with the same colour family of your natural lip shade.
  • If you have lips that are pale and not a lot of pigment, you want to go towards corals so if you want darker lips go with cherry reds instead of a brick red.
  • If you have a lot of red in your lips then follow that lead and get colours that are in the pink or cranberry families.
  • If you have dark lips try brick reds or even darker colours with some shades of brown can work well.
For all lip shades, nude colours can work for a neutral lip, but be careful in the choice because nudes are not all the same. They are cooler based or warmer based. Which means that they will be more on the pink side or the tan/beige side. When you have the wrong one on you will see it right away!
