June is an artist, writer, speaker and advocate for self-empowerment. In 1999, illness overcame her life. During her unwavering search for physical wellness, she stumbled upon the subject of emotional wellness. This discovery led her down a path of self-empowerment for which she will always be grateful. It opened the doorway to her heart. As a result, she has spent a great deal of the past fourteen years focusing on personal growth and self-help. June’s mission is to share what she has learned with other people to support them on their wondrous and sometimes rocky journey. She conducts workshops, writes and paints to share her passion and wisdom with her fellow advocates for self-empowerment.

We are soooo hard on ourselves...

I bet you know exactly what I am referring to...sad, but true. Somewhere along the line we just start beating on ourselves. What were we thinking when we began this destructive habit?

Did you ever find it beneficial to beat on someone? Did they become a better person because you judged them and called them out on what you perceived as their weaknesses? Ironically this is what we do to ourselves and sometimes worse. It does little to help us and it certainly does not empower us.

Pay attention to your self-judgment. Take note of the destruction it causes. Start building yourself up instead.

This weekend make a list of the traits that you value about yourself. List what makes you special and unique. Change your focus to being good to yourself. Believe me it will be a welcomed state!

I find it amazing that when you're on track and your intentions are clear, you will surly know that you are doing what you need to do to transform your life and shift. It is so wonderful that we will be given the strength and resolve to keep going where we need to go to help ourselves create a more peaceful and loving lifestyle.

On a daily basis we get messages. The messages come in many forms. The messages can be very subtle. And sometimes, the messages are profound and obvious. Sometimes the message is expected to some degree, however, the ones that I love the most are the messages that take us by complete surprise and rock our reality.  Those are treasured moments. It really makes you realize that there is order in this seemingly chaotic world.

This week keep your eyes and ears open to the messages that will point you in the direction that you need to be heading. Marvel in the clarity and profound nature of the messages that come about unexpectedly. Have the mind of a child and move away from judgment and fear.

What messages are you experiencing this week? Where should you be heading and what should you let go of to get where you long to be?

Listen and observe carefully with a happy and joyful heart. Follow what your heart yearns for you to know.

Look for the Jewels

I am in the Chicago area and we are starting to experience some mighty noticeable climate changes. Fall weather has arrived. I love the fall. The rich colors and coolness are invigorating!

Sometimes we fight the change in the weather and wish summer would stay. Or, if you are like me, you fight off the feeling of dread associated with the anticipation of the bitter cold that is lurking around the corner.

This morning I was thinking that embracing all change creates peace. Keeping our minds in the present and seeing the beauty that it brings will elevate our minds. Looking for the jewels in all moments and seasons will give us a renewed sense of joy. 

Today look for the jewels. Keep a tally. I would love to know how many you could find.

A Being of Light

You are a spiritual being, a being of light. As you move through the week, think of yourself as a being of light. Think positive, loving thoughts like those of a being of light. Move away from fear and judgmental thoughts. Ask yourself how would a being of light think and raise your thoughts to match what you think they should be. See yourself differently, embrace your spirituality and allow it to flourish. Focus on staying in a peaceful mode no matter what is going on around you. Let no justification drag you back into a judgmental or fearful reality. Allow yourself to connect with what is truly good for you in a spiritual context. Push yourself toward the light and be filled with joy!

It's Free!

I launched my newsletter yesterday! I am very excited.
Be sure to sign up for it if you haven't already. Click on the link on the toolbar to the left. It is free and will help you feel good. A rare combination. No, not really. A walk in the woods is free and makes you feel good. A sunset or sunrise certainly makes you feel good. A starry sky induces good feelings. A pretty flower or tree can do the same...a smile can work wonders. Sunlight brightens our mood. Music certainly does. Loved ones make you feel good. Singing feels good. Dancing, writing and painting make people feel good. Kindness, no matter if you are the giver or receiver makes you feel good.

What freebies in life make you feel good?

You are Amazing!

Yes, I am referring to you. You needed a reminder.
You seem to have forgotten or maybe you never knew.
Think about that instead of something negative or disempowering.
I think you will find it rather pleasant and appealing.
After all, you are amazing!
