    EPISODE 1737: Fine Redefined

    EPISODE 1737: Fine Redefined

    Hopefully after listening to this, you’ll never say you’re FINE again…
    It’s time to expose the big FAT F-Word in the middle of your life!
    Is FINE crowding out fabulous in your life?
    Love in your life?
    Life in your life?
    F- Fearful.
    That’s right, you’re fearful. Living in fear.
    Afraid of being exposed.
    F.E.A.R. is what I like to call: Forgetting Everything And Running.
    But F.E.A.R. redefined is when you: Fully Engage And Remember.
    That’s the key. Remember who you really are.
    REDEFINING IT LOOKS LIKE THIS…
    Turning your SCARED into SACRED.
    I- Isolated.
    This is where you wall yourself off from others. It’s like you’re saying “Leave me alone.” As you disconnect and lick your wounds.
    It’s the ultimate disengagement that leads to a divorced heart.
    REDEFINING IT LOOKS LIKE THIS…
    Connecting so your can go from DISENGAGED TO ENGAGED.
    Fully engaged in your life.
    No longer FINE, but instead, FULFILLED.
    INSPIRED.
    CONNECTED.
    N- Numb.
    When you medicate, suppress, repress, or do whatever it takes to keep from feeling.
    REDEFINING IT LOOKS LIKE THIS…
    Allowing yourself to FEEL in order to HEAL.
    That’s right. Feeling.
    Healing.
    E- Emmy…
    It’s an Emmy-Award Winning performance of pretending.
    Posing. Acting.
    EXCUSES.
    “Should…BUT…”
    “I would…BUT…”
    I’m too busy.
    PRETENDING.
    REDEFINING IT LOOKS LIKE THIS…
    When you stop PRETENDING, and begin TENDING TO YOUR HEART AND SOUL.
    That's TRUTH.
    Full engagement in what’s REAL in your life.
    FROM VICTIM TO VICTORIOUS.
    It’s time to come out of your cage…your box…and begin to live your fulfilled life. Fully engaged.
    What do you say?

    How often do you say, “Oh, I’m FINE?” (But you really don’t mean it.)

    EPISODE 1736: Enter The Land Of AND…

    EPISODE 1736: Enter The Land Of AND…

    If you can’t interpret "IT" at least two different ways, it’s probably not true. BUT…have you been trapped behind the door of EITHER/OR?
    Today I’ll show you how to move beyond limits and "not enoughness," into possibility and abundance. It’s time to define (or redefine) your “and”…AND your “all.”
    The land of AND is all about possibility.
    The Land of AND is…
    The land of TRUTH.
    The land of choice.
    The land of freedom.
    The land of power.
    The land of abundance…
    It’s A BUN DANCE.
    AND...
    The beginning of abundance is YOU being U in the middle of AND.
    A (BU) ND-ance.
    Be you, my dear.
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:
    Write out the word: Abundance.
    Define what it means to you.
    Then break it into ”A Bun Dance”…
    What would "A Bun Dance" look like in your life?
    What would you being U in the middle of “And” at the beginning of aBUndance look like for you?
    Journal about this and enter into the Land Of AND.
    Make a commitment today to see TRUTH from another perspective...YOUR LAND OF “AND."

    EPISODE 1733: How To Forgive When You Don’t Feel Like It

    EPISODE 1733: How To Forgive When You Don’t Feel Like It

    Another way to spell FORGIVENESS is: F.R.E.E.D.O.M.— and here's how to access it...
    "Unforgiveness" is an epidemic in the world, and the one it hurts most is the ONE who has it in her/his heart. Today I’ll show you how to release yourself…
    Remember that dis-ease feels comfortable in dis-ease.
    Here are seven powerful, proven, effective steps for restoring EASE back into your heart, soul, and life. (They've worked for me in my life...every single time I've needed to forgive. These steps have also gotten me through three divorces!)
    1. Pray.
    Ask for the help you need and desire.
    Even if it’s simply praying to want to forgive. Start where you are.
    2. Take responsibility for anything you’ve ever done, and realize that people, including yourself, make mistakes.
    This will help you feel compassion and empathy so you can do this…
    3. Stop taking it personally, and making it a story that’s AGAINST you.
    Remember, that it’s usually not personal. Even when it affects us personally.
    4. Own your part of the story, and then FORGAVE YOURSELF.
    5. Write a letter of forgiveness to yourself. Say whatever you need to say…list out all the things that you’ve done, and feel you need forgiveness for.
    Then symbolically and ceremonially let it go, and release yourself.
    6. Write a letter saying everything (nasty and otherwise) that you'd like to say to the person who wronged me. End it with a bunch of “!!!!!!!!!!”…then get rid of the paper.
    7. Remember that forgiveness is a process that has layers, and can have many layers — like an onion.
    Let the tears flow. Let it go.
    Don’t worry about “forgetting”…this process will help you go beyond that.
    It will help RENEW your mind.
    With your RENEWED MIND, you can experience a transformed life.
    Both life and forgiveness are a process of transformation.
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)  
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: 
    Write down where you’re holding “unforgiveness” toward someone or something in your life.
    Circle the one, or ones, you’re ready to forgive.
    Grab a piece of paper and begin to write a letter of forgiveness. Say what you need to say, and feel what you need to feel…until you feel it’s finished.
    Then put a big X through it, and say, “I forgive and release you now.”
    Maybe the first person on that list is YOU.
    Do yourself a HUGE favor, please begin this process today.
    Thanks for tuning in today, and every day...and allowing me to SIP ON LIFE with you.
    If you’ve been feeling like you’re stuck, overwhelmed, or perhaps you still feel like you’re drowning in your life, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

    EPISODE 1732: Spit or Swallow...Don’t Wallow!

    EPISODE 1732: Spit or Swallow...Don’t Wallow!

    Whatever you’re wallowing in will create a depression in your life. Please stop wallowing in IT. Here’s how…
    Today I share 4 ways to go from wallowing to WONDERING what life would be like IF…
    If you’re wallowing in your life, you’re drowning in it.
    A wallow is “an area of mud or shallow water where mammals go to wallow, typically developing into a depression in the ground over long use.”
    DEPRESSION.
    Please…
    STOP.
    Try these 4 things instead:
    1. Spit it out.
    Don’t drink poison. Even if it’s coming from the inside of you.
    Speak up. Say what you need to say.
    Release it. Get IT out of you.
    2. Swallow it.
    Humility is a brave and powerful antidote to wallowing in whatever it is you’re wallowing in.
    Swallow it. Digest it. Then turn it into fuel for your body and soul.
    BUT whatever you do, DON’T continue to swallow the poison of “unforgiveness” anymore!
    Stop drinking poison thinking that somehow someone else is going to pay the price.
    YOU’RE PAYING FOR IT…WITH YOUR OWN LIFE.
    STOP.
    Forgive yourself. Release yourself and others.
    Stop playing “NOT to LOSE.”
    Start playing to WIN.
    Start living the life you desire to live.
    3. SIP ON IT.
    Drop by drop, you can handle just about anything…except poison!
    What are you REALLY thirsty for?
    Identify what you LOVE and begin to SIP ON IT.
    Stop trying to quench your thirst with dirt!
    Or by EATING YOU from the inside out.
    OR by allowing someone else to feed on you and your life.
    Feel it, but don’t feed it.
    Swallow, don’t wallow.
    Sip on it. Don’t drown in it.
    HONOR YOURSELF TODAY, DEAR SOUL.
    Begin Sipping On Your Life, and ENJOY every drop.
    Release anything in your life that’s not working and no longer fits.
    It doesn't belong to you or in YOU.
    Honor yourself.
    4. Be WONDER-FILLED with whatever it is YOU desire to SIP ON.
    GOT IT?
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) 
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: 
    Identify what it is that you’ve been wallowing in.
    What is it?
    If you’re wallowing in any area of your life, there’s likely “UNFORGIVENESS” that must be SPIT OUT.
    Let it out, and let yourself go.
    Make a decision.
    Take at least one step today that'll allow you to be filled with wonder. 
    Thanks for tuning in today, and every day...and allowing me to SIP ON LIFE with you.
