Are you often told that you are “too sensitive” and need to "toughen up."?
Do you feel highly attuned to other people’s moods, good and bad?
Does spending time around people feel exhausting and draining?
Recently, I had the opportunity to offer a talk to a room filled with women looking to learn more on finding balance within their bodies energy system also known as the Chakra system.
In the audience, a woman said she believed she was an empath and wanted tips on how to protect her energy. She explained that she struggles with feeling completely overwhelmed in crowds, can't watch the news because she feels emotionally drained, often has anxiety and panic attacks.
This seems to be more common than you think. Maybe you've been struggling with the same feelings. I'm here to say there are some techniques you can do to protect yourself from getting sucked into the black hole of feeling the pain...
Dear Magnificent Mama,
Hey, mama, Spring is here ... it feels so good to get out and touch the earth and take notice to the beautiful plants and flowers blooming. Isn't it amazing that spring comes every year ... mother earth is so intuitive no matter how warm or cold she still encourages the blooms to begin their phase of new life.
To me, spring represents the beginning, a fresh start, a new life. Spring is a reminder of the precious gift of life. If you're reading this you have miraculously been granted that gift of life. I'm betting you have many talents that you've played small or even diminished in your life.
How do I know that?
Sadly, I was that girl, who thought that everyone else was smarter, prettier and more talented. I saw nothing special within. Finally, I grew sick of hearing my story of excuses as to why I wasn't doing the work that I was called here to do, I wasn't making enough money, living where I wanted to live,...
Imagine what it would feel like to truly feel free to be…. YOU.
Could you easily say with little resistance, "Love me for who I am, not for who you want me to be…. for I am free to be me!"
Wouldn’t it be so nice to have a world filled with people who felt authentically free to be exactly who they were created to become? Imagine how much happier our world would be. Offering an atmosphere for individuals to live out their dreams with no worries or fears that held them back from doing what makes them feel empowered and excited to live their life. Not living the life that someone tells them they should be.
As a mom, I encourage my boys to grow and explore so they can experience their likes and dislikes. Encouraging them to be the best they can be as individuals. We are teaching our boy’s to identify and pursue their daily goals and desires. Working towards giving them the awareness and understanding that they are in control over what makes...

For the love of your family, please take care of yourself first. By doing so you will be teaching them a valuable lesson that will stay with them forever.
Raising kids certainly has its ups and downs in every stage of life. It seems like we are constantly putting the needs of the children in front of our own basic needs.
Feeling empty, exhausted and often frustrated with so little left to give at the end of the day.
Long gone are the Brady Bunch days when Mrs. Brady always looking well put together and happy.
Is it possible to be that in control never to raise your voice even at the most chaotic moments?
Life is much different today, as mom's we are working part time or full time, running kids in every which direction possible. It's seems difficult to stay calm and breath it all in.
What is the point if we can't find happiness on our journey throughout parenting?
What exactly are we waiting for? To someday...
Having gratitude can change the way you see the world and what you see within yourself and others.
The simple act of feeling grateful for what you have experienced in a day can change the way you feel and what you attract into your life completely.
In my early day's of exploring personal growth and development I started a daily journal. At the end of the day I would jot down all the things I felt grateful for that day.
Doing this activity seemed to reduce my level of stress while shedding light on the bigger picture of what it was that I wanted in my life.
Having a deeper connection to gratitude seemed to illuminate the path of what I was truly seeking.... Enlightenment!
All the while what I really wanted was to be happier, feel more loved and identify my core values. Journaling my gratitude did just that.
As I continue my practice of gratitude I have taken it to a deeper level by specifically writing to a...
On the outside you may look like you’ve got it all together. On the inside the little voice inside keeps telling you words that discourage you from feeling happy, joyful, lovable, successful and empowered.
Chances are you wouldn’t allow anyone to speak to you the way you speak to yourself. If you were to record your daily thoughts into words you would be mortified.
Many of us would hate to admit or take responsibility that our thoughts are self-sabotaging our true happiness. Our relationships are not as joyful and loving, our careers or professions are empty and unfulfilling, and our life mission feels like we just simply existence.
Feeling overwhelmed, frustrated and lack of control we just go on day to day with relationships that are barely amicable, struggling with health issues with little motivation to do anything about because the challenge of finding enough time...
