What’s one of your favorite Thanksgiving memories?

What’s one of your favorite Thanksgiving memories?

I was thinking about this today, thinking about this Thanksgiving and remembering a very special Thanksgiving when I was young. It’s still one of my favorite memories and I am fortunate to have lots of them.

I think I was around 5 years old and it was the night before Thanksgiving.

A big truck pulled up to our house and seven or so of my dad’s friends all came into our dining room. They started to bring in boxes of food, veggies, turkeys, and cans and all sorts of stuff was piled up everywhere. Then, my dad pulled out a long list and all the men started filling the boxes from this list. I knew some of the men, but not all of them.

Of course I asked what it was all about.

My dad told me this was a list from the priests and ministers and rabbi from our town of all the people who may not have enough money to have a good Thanksgiving dinner. So he and his friends got donations of food and money from stores and people to fill these boxes so everyone could have a great Thanksgiving.

I asked to help and I got to count out the potatoes and put them in the right boxes. They kept talking and laughing and working until there were piles of boxes filled with food in the living room and dining room.

Once the boxes were packed they took out a map and put it on the table. My dad explained that they were figuring out the best roads to take so they could deliver everything.

When I asked him who the families were, he smiled and said, “We don’t know. We ask the priests and rabbi not to give us their names, just their addresses so they won’t feel funny or embarrassed that they don’t have enough food this year.

I know my eye must have been wide open at this point. Then he said, “We drive to their house, put the food on the porch or front step. Then we ring the bell and drive away.”

I was in awe. I didn’t know what to say, but I was so proud of him.

They took all of the boxes to the truck and came back in to say goodbye.
Then I looked at all the men in my house and saw they had hats on. I’d never seen those hats before and so I asked one of the men what they were.

He said, “We are veterans and these are the hats we wore when we fought for our country.”

I looked again and all the men smiled. They wore their hats, stood taller and looked at me. And my dad said, “You know, we all just really like to help.”

Then they left laughing and joking and got into the truck and drove away.

I’m tearing up right now, remembering that band of brothers in my house making Thanksgiving for people they would never really know.

Thank you Dad, and all your friends for a simple memory that still moves and inspires me today!

Love, Self-Discovery and Shopping

We can’t get enough love.

We have to sing about it and celebrate it and tell people about our love. We want and need more love in our lives and our world.

Self-discovery is a pathway to love.

Self-discovery is you, engaging in your Self to find your beauty, love and purpose. When you’re really and continually engaged in your own self-discovery, you open to your magnificence. Through self-knowing you resonate to those qualities even more. You open to the love within and the love that radiates.

Shopping is actually a journey of self-discovery.

You see, when you’re shopping, you’re looking for things that enhance and complement your life. To do that, to find what you’re looking for, you have to know who you are and what you want. You have to know your comfort level, your dreams, what you want to do, what inspires you. And then you go shopping. Shopping is your quest! And when  you think of shopping, the energy shifts into clarity, fun and the unexpected!

In this episode of the Cosmic Coffee Break, I’m guiding you in a meditation and wisdom teaching, Love, Self-Discovery and Shopping, to will help you connect with the power of self-discovery in shopping and attune to the true frequencies and multi-level qualities of love today!

If you think about looking for love as shopping, then you can see the journey and play in the beauty of your own truth.

Join me for this fabulous journey of Love, Self-Discovery and Shopping!

Make This Moment The Beginning of TIME

It’s a New Year and each time we go through this cycle, there’s a deeper richer experience that we can create. So, Happy new Year! I want to share a few wisdom teachings and meditations to help you open to looking at things in new ways. When you look at things in new ways, you get to experience the world from a fresh perspective and then see if that perspective works for you!

 Imagine this is the Beginning Of Time.

I’m going to talk about a New Year for more than just one day. Imagine the New Year has infinite possibilities the flow beyond just one day. The New Year is also about time. When you break up your ideas about time,  when you reformat thinking and conversations about time, you can discover a new freedom, more personal joy, creativity, spirituality and bigger possibilities.

What if you knew that each moment is the Beginning Of Time. It’s not just a new sequence, but this moment can be a real beginning – fresh, uninhibited and free to create, now. If you understand that your life on this world is comprised by a series of moments, then you can “seize the now” and declare it a new beginning. When you focus in the present you can create your future as though the beginning of time is now. Now. NOW!

The Beginning Of Time episode of the Cosmic Coffee Break includes the Beginning Of Time guided meditation and affirmation that helps you create new beginnings and embrace fresh ways to create your life.

I’m sharing these posts about my podcast, Cosmic Coffee Break, because I hope you will be inspired and move into joy, possibility and success. Each podcast has teachings and frequencies that are clearing, healing and able to help you move forward. Sometimes, it’s so much easier and more powerful to listen than it is to read.  The Cosmic Coffee Break podcasts bring beautiful wisdom teachings, vibrations, meditations and energy to you.

UNIFY FEST- DREAMS INTO REALITY

unify fest sining ceremonyBeauty, love, joy, harmony, peace, wisdom sharing and community.

These are the words I use to describe the beautiful weekend I had at Unify Fest in Santa Fe. A dear client of mine invited me to attend this spiritual, magical and heartwarming four day festival. It’s amazing to feel so relaxed and in joy with 1500 people.

As I listened to fabulous speakers, talked with wonderful teachers and basked in the energies of this blessed event, I could see the future in the now. I could feel the shifts that have been foreseen, that have been prophesied, dancing in this present.

Unify Fest - This was a space of pure delight for Peter and me. We smiled, danced, shared love and delight and relaxed in the radiant blessings shining from everyone’s hearts. I was looking for the words to describe the energy, and you probably know that I have lots of words, but it was more a feeling that was beyond. I can’t really describe the experience, but as Chief Phil Lane Jr. said to me, “There are no words.” I was in a peace village. I was hearing the words and blessings, the songs and prayers, that we have been waiting to hear and see manifest. That was the beauty of it all.

unify fest dancingSo, my Dear Ones,
Here’s to the future manifesting in the present
Here’s to the love rolling like waves on our shores
Here’s to the laughter dancing on eagle wings
Here’s to the magic beaming in the hearts of our world
Here’s to the knowing that we are creating and manifesting
a world of light, of peace, and a community of honor, love and truth.

No matter what feels like restriction,
no matter what pains are revealed,
no matter what hardships, struggles and poisons, that are shown as real,

the real truth reveals the prophecies
that are shining in our hearts,
lighting your eyes and
bringing the new life, the healing life, the loving life into fruition right now.
It is already here.
The seeds are already planted.
The joy is blossoming forth.

We are in the future, the dream of harmony is now awakened.

How to Actively Go With The Flow

How to actively go with the flow in life.

The plans of the Universe always supersede our own plans. What do you do when the forces are changing plans without advance notice? I had a crazy experience of exactly that when I was in Los Angeles a few days ago.

I was visiting LA for business with clients and had all my plans in order. It was a quick trip, including the appointments, but I would still have time to relax, enjoy the ocean and connect with clients and friends.

The flight was on time and seating was perfect. A breeze, right?
Oops. We landed in LA on time, but it took more than 30 minutes to taxi to the gate. A small delay, but I factored in extra time for LA traffic, anyway. We went to pick up the rental car.

Oops. They didn’t have the car we reserved. Okay. We got into another car and drove off the lot.
Oops. The car was jerking and braking dangerously. We drove around the block, returned the car and got another car. By the time we returned the rental, a perfect car came onto the lot. We got a luxury car and we were off to check into the hotel. Phew! Continue reading

Can You Read The SIGNS?

Can you Read the Signs?

How do you know when the Universe is calling?
One powerful and inspiring aspect about Spirit, about the Divine, is you never know when She will send you a sign. A sign can be really obvious or it can be subtle and even invisible. What is most important about receiving signs or Divine messages is you have to be open to them.

Winning is a gift!

Surprise! You're a winner!

Surprise! You’re a winner!

Do you love to win?

I love to win, especially something unexpected, a pure surprise. I just won a gift basket from the Georgia O’Keeffe museum at a raffle.
Hurray!
What a blast!
It even included a free membership. Winning brightened my smile.

I know we all want to win, at something or in competition. Winning a surprise brings delight to another level.

So, what do you want to win?

  • Do you want to win admiration?
  • Do you want to win the approval of those important to you or your field?
  • Do you want to win the inner competition to attain a new level of excellence in your business, your personal life or the world?
