Last week my sister Kerri invited me to attend a lecture at a local library called, “ It’s Not About The Hike.“ Pat and Nancy, gals in their 50′s, started walking on their neighborhood sidewalks and eventually ended up climbing the 100 highest mountains in New England.
The funny thing about being yourself is that you have to lose your self-consciousness – the habit of judging yourself – in order to do it. You need to become so immersed in the moment and within yourself, that you begin to channel your pure creative spirit.
Last week my husband Michael saved my ass. He happened to walk by my office while I was pounding away at my computer’s keyboard, crafting an email to someone who had just written to me with a message that pushed my buttons.
Over the years I’ve spoken to thousands of people about realizing their dreams and accomplishing their goals. By now most of us know that putting an action plan in place with simple steps is what gets us on the path. But, many people never get that far because of common obstacles that get in their way.

It certainly has been an accelerated period of growth in my own life – a time of transformation when I’m being invited to release outdated structures, patterns, and people so I can take the next leap required to keep my soul heading in the right direction.
Over the years many of you have heard me talk about tapping techniques – an elegant and efficient method for dealing with fears, phobias, trauma, addiction, weight loss, and so much more.

As you tap on specific points on the body while repeating phrases related to the issue, life-long problems often vanish.
I’m heading back to Miraval in a little over a week to teach my last retreat with Louise Hay. As I was going through my files preparing for our time together, I found notes from our first retreat. They represent the simple wisdom Louise has lived by – wisdom I’ve been applying to my own life with great success. I hope you’ll use them, too!
On Friday of last week, I posted a notice on Facebook about feeling more sensitive these days to the happenings in the world. Within no time there were more than 300 comments from people who could relate and a beautiful conversation about what we can do to protect our sensitivity ensued.
