This month I have been talking about Joy, how Joy shows up in your life.  How are you using Joy to move you out of pain, frustration and sadness? Let’s look at ways you have shared with me the simple ways you have played with JOY.

Rena in Bothell, WA  “I have been struggling with changes in my family.  My father was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer and I have been finding it difficult to feel happy or joy, all I feel is sad. This news is not what we expected.  My mother is having a particularly difficult time.  I heard you on the radio talking about joy and decided to give it a try.  I wanted to feel joy bubbling up inside of me, it took me a while, I really wanted to feel better and change how I was looking at the situation.  After a minute or two of focusing on times in my family when we were all together and happy, I really did feel better.  I am going to get my family talking about the good times and see if that does not help.  Thank you.”

Rena, I know what you are going through, my mother was recently diagnosed with uterine cancer and when I heard the news I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach.
I recently sat with my mother during her recovery from surgery and looked through old photographs of times when both my mother and I were children it was really fun to take that walk down memory lane.  I know that I always say live in the now, but sometimes it is valuable to remember those really happy times so that you can remember the feelings. Taking that walk down memory lane was a very special time and one that I know lifted our spirits.

Karen in Seattle “I was recently laid off from work and this is a scary time.  I have three children and all of us have become accustomed to living on two incomes.  It is really hard to feel joy when everything around me says it is all falling apart.”

Karen, I hear what you are saying and I tell you, this is the most important time to feel joy!  Have you ever heard the statement “What you focus on you get?”  Well it is true, I know many of us have had times when we are really sad or upset or scared, everything around us seems to be falling apart and then it just keeps on snowballing.  So, how do you feel joy in the midst of chaos?  Change your focus, look at what you do have, a healthy family, a loving husband, beautiful things to surround you, friends.  The trick is to focus on what you are grateful for, the more you focus on gratitude the more you will move out of fear and into joy!

Sometimes we are given challenges in life to help us focus on what is really important, the simple joys of being with those you love and sharing a smile, a cup of tea and remembering the love.

The joys in life are most often those simple little unexpected moments when you can let the worries of the day wash off of you and be present in your life.

Let us all allow space for more joy in our lives!


Many of us focus on the end results of our life and not on what is happening right now in this moment,  I wondered what it was that kept us focusing on the future with little or no thought or focus on today.  Really, you do not know what the future holds for you and even if you did you would have no control over it anyway.  The only thing you have control over is you in this moment, so why waste the opportunity?  Being a control freak myself, I like to have control or at least the illusion of control, so if I know that right now in this moment I can truly have control over my life, then I say let me at it!  I have control over what I think, what I say, how I feel and what I do about it, What Power, I am giddy with it.  Right now in this moment I choose to live my life to the fullest and really enjoy the control I do have and give up that illusion of control over anything else in my life.  In fact, I no longer want to have control over those things I really never had control over, way too much work.  I choose to enjoy the freedom that comes with letting go.  I choose to live my life to the fullest, in this moment.  I wish you the same!


I love the words, Heart Felt, it means feeling deeply.  My heart felt desire is that we can all feel what is in our hearts all of the time.

To know what you are feeling at any given moment and really feel it.

I have many clients who have a heart felt longing to know who they are and what it is they are here to do.  We are given longing or desire to know, as a means to move us forward.

People are waking up in droves right now and they are all seeking to find what they are meant to do what is in their hearts.

I think we are meant to find ourselves and the truth of who we are, the truth that we are all one, that we are all spirit experiencing the subtle and not so subtle nuances that life has to offer, to revel, to rejoice, to wallow, to celebrate, to cry, to really experience every moment to their depths.  Once we have done that we can come from choice and decide if that felt good and if we want to do more of it.  If not, make the choice to see if from a different perspective and rise above it, make the choice to not react to it, to not do it again, not give it power.

Be that master of your life and celebrate you in it.  Come from your heart. Be the joy or not… it has always been your choice!


Today as I was working, I received a call from an dear friend of the family.  She was a close friend to my grandmother.  Hearing her voice and the sadness that still lingers there for the loss of my grandmother (it has been 3 years) but for this lovely women it as if it were yesterday, I realized that for her time has stopped.  It made me think about how precious our time is with people we love and know.  How our time here in this lifetime really is just a flash in the cosmic time.  I want to make change, make a difference, to effect global reawakening, and yet…..Am I really taking the moments with people that I meet on the street, at my door, in my daily life, in my business or even my close personal friends and family, am I taking the time I need to get to know who they are, what makes them live in the reality they do?  Am I taking the time to discover the precious moments the precious gifts that they have to offer me and am I offering them my gifts.  Am I helping to raise them up to the light?

All of these precious moments are the little joys that truly give our life meaning.

Find some joy today!

Light it up!


Are you thinking your thoughts or Are your thoughts thinking you?  A question you may want to be asking yourself any time that little pesky voice rears up and starts telling the truth, as it sees it, not the Truth you know.

Taking stock of your thoughts is a good way to know what is going on in your life; are you thinking..I do not have enough time,  I am always late, I am too fat,  too thin, too.. too…too!  Here is a good one, I do not know what I want or I am so stupid!  Listen to the words you say (or the voice says) to yourself.  They are very telling.

Are you fed up with giving your attention to the little voice?  Are you ready to take back control of your thoughts and take back control of your life?

Be the MASTER of your own Universe, start with your thoughts.

Have a positivity day.


Ever wonder why some people seem to just breeze through life with seeing not a care in the world, why some people have all the luck?
Well…. I can tell you it is all a matter of perspective.

What you see as a limitation, block barrier to you having your good, does not even exist in their world.  The energy they are projecting out into the world is “I deserve all the best that life has to offer” and that is exactly what they get.  They do not even understand why some people do not get what they want because their perspective says “I deserve”.
Due to genetics, patterning, self talk… all of the things that are running around in our thoughts and beliefs that tell us we do not deserve are the very things that we need to remove so that we can say “I deserve” and mean it.

This is the work I do every day with my clients because we all DESERVE.

The fact that so many people are running around with the confusion of how to move beyond these patterns is exactly why I created “SHIFT”

“SHIFT” is a 6 week course that really helps the attendees look at what it is they want and exactly what is getting in the way of achieving it in their lives.

Currently I have two new courses starting May 13th at 6:30 pm and May 17th at 9:30 am.

Check out my website at http://www.in-lighten.net for more information.

I hope you have a  positivity day!


At this time of year I often find myself thinking of how many of us move through our lives in this seemingly endless conveyor belt of activities.  All very expected of course.  Must buy a gift for ……….fill in the blank.  Time to plan dinners and feasts and decorate.  All so busy and yet, over all too soon.  This year I am more conscious of who and what I want to see, spend time with and enjoy.  I want to have real connections with people I really like.  That is not to say that I spend time with people I do not like but often I find myself in the company of others not having the time to really get to know them on a deeper level, it is all so civilized and superficial.

I have finally learned to like people and am fascinated by them. After all of this time I see people for who they are, not the mask they wear and want us to see.  Most of them are just trying to get through without too many disappointments, aches, pains or hurts.

I invite you to discover the hidden not so noticeable treasure that we have available to us ever day, not just this time of year.  This treasure is right under our noses; it is the precious gift that is the human spirit.  We have the remarkable ability to choose the lives we live.  Most of us choose the route that makes us feel safe.  Some of us, those rare jewels, have the courage to dive into each day and choose to live lives filled with magic!

I for one am going to take the time and choose to discover the real Joy, which is the magic of YOU!

Joy to you!

The Longevity Goddess


I believe that we all have it in us to break through the barriers of our past and move into our future with joy.  Discovering what holds us back is the key to moving into our future.  The EIP process is very effective at unlocking the blocks and patterns and unhooking us from predetermined behavior.

I have been working with this process myself and with my clients for over a year now and am finding some amazing results.  Moving past those behaviors that you keep repeating. Those patterns that you keep repeating even when you no longer want to.  WE have always been made to feel taht we have to suck it up and just stop.  Many of us have found that so much easier said than done.  With the EIP process you can move through those programs to the other side and begin to see a future filled with joy!
