When I saw this bumper sticker the other day, at first I laughed. Then I read it again and thought about it. There is a day coming, and perhaps even has come, when non-judgment will prevail.
What does that mean?
Jesus said, “Judge not, lest you be judged,” right? Jesus was a non-judgmental guy. He actually warned us against condemning individuals, not to judge them.
Someday we will stop judging one another and accept each of us for who we are, stop the criticizing and hating others for their opinions and actions.
And that someday can be today if we chose.
Please share your comments with us.

Often times we don’t want to forgive someone or a situation because we feel that it is an excuse for their behavior or an action that was done to us.
It’s just that …. an assumption.
In reality, it has nothing to do with that person or situation. It has to do with YOU.
You are the one who receives all the benefits of healing when you forgive and LET GO.
Forgiveness is healing. When you forgive, it allows your entire being and heart to heal. It opens the door to healing not only your spirit and mind but your physical body.
Do you find it hard to forgive?
What emotions and feelings are you holding inside? Anger, sadness, grief, pain and blame?
So, ask yourself: How does that bring me JOY?
How does it serve you to dwell on these thoughts?
How much more time do you want waste going over and over the story in your mind, telling others and thinking of how you can get back at this person?
When you let go you create space
for better things to enter your Life!
Forgiveness is a deep process and it takes time. When you lift the burden from your own heart you feel lighter and more JOYful.
Remember this ….. you are not excusing this person or situation for the actions that were done to you. Instead you are releasing the burden and negativity from your own heart.
Healing and forgiveness go hand in hand.
When you forgive yourself and others you move forward and open yourself to more abundance and blessings the Universe has in store for you. It will give you a sense of more completion and wholeness in every area of your life.
Mantra for Today:
I replace every attitude, belief, physical, mental, emotional
and spititual problem with forgiveness.”

Today’s question: Are you living in an awakened consciousness or an ego consciousness?
So many things happen in our lives where we tend to feel hurt or taken advantage of. This is normal according to our culture and upbringing. Someone says or does something to us that hurts deeply and immediately we feel anger and rage within us. That is the ego consciousness.
But, what if we, instead, we tapped into our awakened consciousness? In this state we no longer feel the negative emotions. This gives us freedom from suffering and detaches us from the negative ego. This is empowering. This is freedom. This is no longer being the victim but being the victor. The Universe gives us these situations in order for us to grow. If life were always fun and games, no one would grow.
When we tap into our inner feelings, really feel what is going on, we can identify with our ego suffering. The world is suffering from ego poisoning. When we claim our “Is-ness”, which is the quality of being, life changes. From “Is-ness” we find universal love and forgiveness and freedom.
So next time you feel anger or rage from one of life’s challenges, tap into that feeling, deeply feel it. Question it. Don’t take it personally. When you are on the journey of crystal clarity, you feel and live the whole inner process of re-claiming who you are and resolving the situation or problem becomes an easy process.
So which are you?
Are you living in awakened consciousness or ego consciousness?
Are you the victim or the victor?

Happy New Year. What is your word for 2018?
What is getting in your way of a JOYful Journey?
We all have things in our lives that get in the way.
It could be negative friends, a failing relationship or an unhappy job situation.
All of these things are types of clutter that gets in our way.
Is clutter an obstacle on your path?
Today, I’d like to focus on the clutter that is around you in your house. This is a very therapeutic place to start …. deCluttering what is directly in contact with your life, at this very moment. It’s a great way to cleanse your house and mind and get on the path to eliminating the baggage that holds you back from being your true self and having the life you want.
By deCluttering the things around you, you start to feel better about yourself, which in turn can help you eliminate the other areas of clutter in your life.
Is your closet stuffed full of clothes you never wear?
Is there no room in your garage for your car?
Is your house in a tizzy?
Do you spend an endless amount of time looking for things?
Do you wish that you were more organized?
What is going on in your world?
Are you living in a world of clutter and disorganization?
You are busy with your life, your career, your hobbies, your family. We downsize our dreams of how our life might be. Can you relate to this? Sometimes it doesn’t so feel good.
I invite you to look around you in this moment.
Is your desk covered with papers and junk?
Are things spilling around you and on to the floor?
Is there a mess in the kitchen sink from last night’s dinner?
Are your clothes scattered all over your bedroom?
“But . . . I don’t know where to start.”
As you look around you, I want to invite you let’s have a conversation to help support you in making your life more in alignment with your vision and who you really want and desire to be ….. to be clutter free ….. to know where things are …… to save time in knowing where everything is and create more time in your life to do the things you really want to do.
A place for everything! A thing for every place!
After many years of being disorganized myself, I have learned some valuable tools to help you reclaim, find and build your life back again to live without the clutter and disorganization. So many of us are striving for this but we don’t know where to start.
I encourage you to take a few moments and feel the space around you. How would you envision your space to look? How would having less clutter help you see your life and the world? How would this renewal of space help you in your daily life?
How can deCluttering help me get organized in other areas of my life?
Listen to your thoughts.
I invite you to claim your space and your surroundings for YOU. Take responsibility, listen to your heart and step into a new way of thinking as you clear the clutter from your life.
Ask yourself …… “Does this bring me JOY?”
I have a FREE offer for you …… Let’s arrange a time for us to talk about deCluttering your life and your space. Click this link to schedule. Sometimes, all we need is a guiding hand for support.
You know . . . you can do this!
“Out of clutter, find simplicity.”
~ Albert Einstein ~
“I may not be able to change
the circumstances of my life
but I can change the conversation.”
It’s not how you react, but how you interrupt it.
Today . . .
I shape my perception of things.
I choose how to respond.
It’s that time again …… a time to reflect and set an intention for the coming year. What is yours?
This amazing creation by Mother Nature is located on the border of Arizona and New Mexico.
This location serves as the capital of the Navajo Nation and is the largest territory of sovereign Native American Nation in North America.
It was worth the extra miles to drive to feel the powerful energy and vibration.
Once you notice the things there are to listen to,
you allow new and wonderful gifts for yourself.
You begin to listen without actually thinking.
When you find your mind thinking,
bring it back to listening.
Any judgments, opinions, stories, beliefs, labels
or concepts that arise might come in.
Note these and then return to listening.
Align yourself with peace, contentment, love, acceptance and JOY.
Give it some LVE.
