Lights, Camera, Action!

 My 36th Birthday was 3 days ago. Inching up until the days before my birthday I began to get this overwhelming feeling that my life would begin at 36. Filled with constant emotion throughout the past few months I began to take note that my steps were being ordered spiritually.  The blueprint was never precise yet it was impossible for me to ignore the stir of change upon and around me. This energy was separate from me yet together with me. There’s an inner spiritual reward one feels when they begin to acknowledge a positive shift of change within their own life.  Knowing where I’ve come from and seeing where I am today brings me to a place of immense inner peace.  I’m so nurturing and kind-hearted to the woman that I’ve become.  I now do nearly everything within my own space and timeframe. Peace and stillness are utterly delightful in my new world.  The world waits for me to move in its time yet I continue to wait patiently on the nudging that I’ve come to trust so deeply. Like so many of you I too struggle with the fear of rejection.  Working through that fear until the point of elimination is crucial.  Often times, I meet people that don’t like me at, “Hello”.  My energy is that of a deep presence that is grounded in integrity and love yet some continue to mistake that for arrogance and self-motive. I made a very particular birthday wish this year and when I was done I chuckled while thinking to myself, “Wouldn’t it be great to find the type of Love that sticks around even during the rough patches?”  In the interim, I’ve stepped all the way up to the plate of life and I’m ready to swing.  Not just any type of swing but a full swing that connects and causes the ball to fly way out of the park.  Some will think this reality came way too late in life for me but I chuckle at that as well while I think, “Hey, better late than never”. Showing up for my own show is different than any other show that I’ve attended.  My script is still unwritten but I know that I have to be present and on set daily.  Every morning that I open my eyes it seems as if the world has become just that much clearer to me.  My insight, my approach, my tolerance, and my openness to change have all increased for the better and decreased wherever necessary.  My daily to-do list is in hand even though I have the power to toss it if and when needed.  Life is overwhelming in a good way at the moment.  Ignoring perceptions that don’t add value to my life and moving toward my greater goal to incorporate and uplift the lives of others in every single thing that I do is the only thing that motivates me now.  

This positive change that has arisen within has helped me to develop a total mind, body and soul sense of consciousness.  Summer is my favorite time of year.  I feel closest to nature and more importantly to my Source during this time of year.  It’s during this period of time that I seem to be the most creative and I get the most done. It could have something to do with this being the time of year that I came into the world but nevertheless this time of year is always a starting point for me.  When you achieve this level of consciousness that I’m moving into; life becomes less and less about you and increasingly more about others.  Life becomes a connected source of goodness, wholeness, love and oneness.  Giving my time and my energy to someone in need causes the ultimate level of satisfaction for my soul.  Keeping myself well-aligned with God, nature, good health and well-being continue to lead me into full consciousness. I have high regard as to what goes in and out of my body at all times.  Practicing a life of vegetarianism, celibacy and well-roundedness make me feel clean and whole. I feel completely loved and accepted by God.  I’ve ascended into new consciousness that doesn’t permit me to think or to act the way that I once did years ago.  I’m so in love with the human being that I see looking back at me in the mirror. I believe that God has always intended for it to be the way it is right now at this very moment.  Life is so sweet nowadays.  Without any haste in my system I sometimes wonder if he plans to connect me with a man that will honor and love me exactly as I am.  The beauty of it all is that either way I have so much joy.  I’m studying the words of the Bible in Proverbs 31; not just for the characteristics of a noble wife but also for its warnings against alcohol for leaders.  Everything in life must have balance.  Too much of anything in one regard or another will lead to demise.  Humbly, I move forward knowing that, “To those that much is given, much is expected”, and this brings me to think of you.  You, the person that’s sitting at your computer screen reading this article at this second on the clock.  What gets the camera rolling in your life?  What steps are you moving toward to leave yourself in this world far after you’re dead and gone?  Is this concept even something that you think of, or do you live day by day just chasing your next paycheck? 

I would like to encourage you to do something different today.  Put on your Sunday’s BEST! Walk out of your house today with a new attitude and with an entirely different pep in your step.  Do something that you’ve never done before; by doing so you will achieve results that you’ve never achieved. Believe in yourself enough that it attracts others to do the very same.  The only foolish idea is the one that you keep hidden and don’t share with the world.  If you write, then write.  If you sew, then sew.  If you exercise, then train, but get out there today and do something!  Be sure that whatever you do comes deep down from the best place that’s in your heart.  That’s the place that dreams are made of.  That’s the place that will lead you to your fantastic destiny.  Don’t let anything or even more importantly anyone discourage you from your dreams because your dreams are a blessing from God.  Move forward in light and in truth and you will never be led astray.  If you’re reading this and you’re suffering with depression, anxiety, worry or fear about what your next step will be; then please email me and together we can figure it out (  If you’re stuck in a dead-end job or relationship and you’re too afraid to move toward the door then let’s talk about it… 

Wherever you find yourself today just be sure to keep moving toward the stars! The sky’s the limit!  What separates you from the crowd is taking one baby step forward.  I’m rooting for you! Lights, Camera, Action, You’re on!

Much Luv

  1. Awesome post, and since I connect with the spirituality within your post, let me go ahead and testify to the holistic sentiment on a whole. I am sure there are many persons in the world who also identify. Either that, or they're seeking for the exact same eternal peace. Above all else, it's a beautiful thing.

    Knowing where I’ve come from and seeing where I am today brings me to a place of immense inner peace.

    The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Once you know in your heart that a change has come, a change for the better of oneself, there is nothing that anyone can say to diminish the change because you know the person you truly are. I too embrace this feeling.

    Everything in life must have balance. Too much of anything in one regard or another will lead to demise.

    It took me awhile to learn this, but afterward, I hold this concept close to my heart. Thinking back, during the times I hardly felt like myself, it was the result of the lack of balance in which you touched upon.

    Enjoyed the read.

  2. Oops, I almost forgot - Happy Belated Birthday to you, Barbara. You are a beautiful spirit.

  3. Hi Don:

    It's always such a pleasure to read your commentary. Your level of awareness is high and one that I appreciate. Thank you graciously for the Birthday wishes. Another year to figure out the journey is always such a blessing. Love, Light, Peace & Tranquilty is how I intend to move forward this year. It was difficult for me to find a cutoff point for this particular post. I could have kept going and going. I allowed people and things to define so much of who and what I was in this life. I was confined by the very people and things I let define me. When I finally took the chains off; I realized that my journey is unique and I have to pursue it without confinement. I used to cling to things that weren't for me and then cry when I thought I came up short. I used to work overtime for people to see my spirit and then one day I realized that everyone isn't supposed to. *sighs*, I wasted a lot of my years here trying to gain the approval of others, trying to work the, "safe job", trying to be overly polished and all the while completely knowing the goodness of my own heart. When I stopped trying so hard; my spirit was elevated to new heights. Today, I feel free, and focused. I understand that who and what is on my path has to do with the decisions I make directly. Balance is key in everything I do these days from drinking wine to how much I give of myself to anyone. Thank you as always for being an avid reader. Blessings to you and your family.

    Much Luv
