Live in the NOW to Create YOUR Tomorrow


As I rise with the sun I know that it's going to be a great day. 

Why?

Well it's not because the leprechauns left a pot of gold at my doorstep, I was a pound lighter on the scale or got younger overnight. I checked. 

It's because I know that everyday is a new beginning. Every morning when we rise we leave yesterday behind. We only have to look forward to today. 

People, the future is right in front of you. It's right now.

Long past are the days where I beat myself up when I rise for what I did not accomplish yesterday. I look only to today and what I can get done. I don't dream about tomorrow, I live in the now and create my tomorrow.

Try it and you will see, just how wonderful today can be.

Sending you a day filled with promise,

LeeZa Donatella

Calling in your Soulmate


I received an interesting question a few days ago from a woman who wanted information on a way to smudge to get a husband. It made me think long and hard before answering about how you find that one true; the one with whom you spend hours in long passionate embraces where the kisses are as sweet as the ripest peach. Ah, how delicious!

I think the question says a lot about how we define ourselves. Personally, I’m enjoying being single right now. I get the entire bed, no one is snoring, I don’t have to worry about morning breath and I have the freedom to go where I please when I please.  

Since, not everyone is in that same place, I’m sharing all the steps right here; one of my little secrets:

Know You are Worthy of It All
First I wrote the article Feelings of Worthiness(Video) because if a woman is seeking a man she has to know in her heart that she is the most beautiful creature on the planet and should not settle for someone who doesn’t realize this.  I even put myself in front of a camera, no makeup just to prove that point.  We don’t need accoutrements, we are already stunning right out of the package.

Smudging
Smudge Your Space for Release
Smudging is used as a way to purify your space and yourself. I think that if you are seeking your soulmate or want to attract a husband, it’s certainly a great place to start by becoming clear.
First, use sage to smudge your space.

Read my article called Moving Forward after a breakup  that explains about attachments from past relationships. It will help you clear the energy of your past relationships out of your personal space and self.

I am going to assume that you are open to a universal pray and I am going to assume that there is still some stuck energy from a past relationship in there. If it were me, I would say the following when smudging your space:

“I ask God, and all the heavenly spirits to work with me today to clear this house. Let it free from _Your Ex-s Name’s___ energy as I release him with love and become a place where my new beloved, my soulmate feels comfortable spending time.”

As you go through the space, following the instructions I provide in my article, you can say the following:

“This is a space of love and light where I free _ Your Ex-s Name’s___ energy and my new beloved feels welcome and comfortable.”

Smudge Yourself for Release
Then smudge yourself, I would first use Sage and say the following.
“I am a being of love and light, free from _ Your Ex-s Name’s___ energy, clear and strong and am worthy of finding true love with my soulmate.  

Smudge Yourself to Call In Your Soulmate
I would buy a small amount of Palo Santo and smudge yourself again. It doesn’t have to be in the same day.  You can use this phrase.

"I am a being of love and because I love myself unconditionally, I am clear to attract my true love, a soulmate who wants a committed relationship."

The List (one of the most important steps)
After you do all the above, then please do take a look at one more thing; my article called, How to Attract a Soulmate. It has the last 3 steps and are well worth the comic read.

I send to you love and encouragement in finding him, the man who will jump over tables in the waiting lounge at the airport just to get a glimpse of you; the one who sees you from the other side of the subway platform and races up and down the stairs to get to the other side to ask you out before your train arrives. Attract your Soulmate. You are the one. How to get a husband

Feelings of Worthiness (Video)



Today I was reminded once more about how women view themselves when I received a letter help from a gal across the country.  As I read through it I saw it as a desperate cry for assistance based on feelings of unworthiness and low self-esteem.  


With the shift to a patriarchal society millenniums ago, women have been made to believe that they are the weaker sex, frail and inferior and must sacrifice their happiness for the sake of all others.  It has created a society where women have low self worth and esteem issues.  

For once and for all gals, wake up. We are women, strong, intelligent and mighty. We can accomplish anything we set our mind to. And we are worthy of a love so great with a partner that cherishes us. 

Below is a quick video I put together.



I also teach a lecture/workshop on Reclaiming Your StrengthDo not settle for mediocrity. .

Wishing you a powerful love filled day,

Let go of your fears and Start Living YOUR Dream


So often when I speak to people about how I gave away most of my belongings in the last year to basically live off the grid, volunteering in different parts of the world while writing, they look at me and say things like "I could never do that," or "I wish I had the courage." 

At the beginning of my journey, the universe presented with the below Patrick Overton quote on a chalk board in a rustic inn in northern California. It brought tears to my eyes as I read it. I carry that quote with me to remind me of how far I've come.


"When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for you to stand upon or you will be taught to fly.”  

Some people live their entire lives wanting to do things, but they never take that first step into the unknown because of fear.   

Let me let you in a little secret. I was petrified as I left the comfort of my prior life and routine as I dared to take my life in a different direction.  But I was more afraid to continue to live in the homogenized 2-by-2 world when I had the overwhelming calling to serve others. I was not sure how long I would have, and this may have been my only shot so I took that chance.  And as I journey, the universe provides me with more delicious quotes, like this one from Eleanor Roosevelt that has kept me going: 

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” 

I'm not positive that we have more than one life, so I have to make this one count. I am no longer willing to settle for what I don't want, just because it is more convenient.  I am no longer willing to settle for NOT living so I jumped out of my comfort zone. 

In the beginning it was a matriarchal world with women guiding the planet in peace and love. Society has messed with women in past millenniums, making them believe that they are frail and inferior and must sacrifice their happiness for the sake of all others. Well, let me set the record straight RIGHT NOW.  We are strong and do anything and don't need to define ourselves through others think of us. 

What you think of yourself, that's what really matters.  

So I say to you, take a chance and live life. Let go of your fears and feel good about you as you follow your passion and live your dream. When you do anything is possible!

Wishing you a day filled with breaking free from fear,

It's Only Rock and Roll


It's a Sunday and as I reflect on the week, a poem came to mind.

It’s Only Rock and Roll
A rolling stone gathers no moss
And a heart is filled with love

 I look at the possibilities
The endless splendor this life 
has to offer me

In the grand scheme of things 
I have so many things 
but I know only one to be true

That it’s only rock and roll…
but I like it!

Note:  The art piece was one fothe first created by San Diego artist Inocente

Wishing you great tunes this day and always that fill your heart with joy.

Moving Forward after a Breakup



Have you ever had a relationship that did not turn out well? I think that over the years we have all had those types of experiences.  I certainly have.  I’ve receive a lot of questions regarding moving forward after a relationship and thought it was time I wrote about it. First of all I want you to know that if you are not with the right person, then move on. You DESERVE to be with someone who knows that you are a Goddess and treats you accordingly.

You can't see it, but I am shaking my finger back and forth as I say this! -  If they don't cherish you like the Goddess you are, then they need to go!

Cleansing your Space and Personal Energy
First, it’s always a good idea to "smudge" your home and yourself after you breakup with someone. Doing so clears their energy pattern from your space. Don't know how to smudge? See my article and video on smudging, titled, How and When to Smudge. You can come up with your own words, but saying goodbye to your ex-s energy in a loving way is what I have done. Wish them well as they leave your space.

Types of Break Ups
Before I explain the types of relationships and the best course of action, let me begin by saying that I'm sorry that things didn't work out well for you and that I empathize with you. I was with someone for several years and it is difficult at times to imagine life without them, even though I know the breakup was for the best.

We’ve Grown Apart
If you’re in a relationship where you’ve grown apart, staying together may keep both of you from experiencing the life you were meant to lead. Whether it’s you, your partner, or both of you that have mutually decided to move on, you should be able to speak rationally to each other about the health of your relationship and come to an amiable parting.

You may remain in contact or maybe you won’t. Regardless, even with the most cordial of breakups either one or both of you may feel hurt. Take time to heal before getting into a new relationship. As I've said before, even with the healthiest of past relationships we take away at least one suitcase full of issues with us when we depart. And no, I don’t care if your luggage is Louie Vuitton. Take time to resolve those issues.

It’s true that time does heal all wounds. As we work on ourselves, the hurt from that relationship fades allowing us to move forward with our lives. Work on understanding the lessons from that relationship as you recall the good times; and don't let the negative consume you.

The Never Ending Blemish
Have you ever had an ex-partner who just could not let go of the relationship, keeping it alive by whatever means possible? Perhaps some of you have. Whether you are on good terms with them or not, know that by doing so, it’s their way to stay in your energy field. These ex-partners are like annoying blemishes on your face that just don’t seem to fade. Even when you ignore them, they just don't won't to go away.  Saying the following non-threatening phrase to them, may help get them walking in a direction outside your space.

“You were one of my greatest life lessons. I’ve integrated and moved forward. I pray that you can do the same.”

The Stalker or Abuser
The above statement won’t work if you were stuck in a relationship where the thought of leaving your partner frightens you. Why? Because trying to speak to an irrational sociopath does no good. You know the type, at first they’re incredibly sensitive and attentive, but when you move in together you get a glimpse of the real person and well, it’s not pretty. You end up walking on eggshells because you never know what will set them off next.

Sure, you can get a restraining or protection order, but that does not provide any guarantee. They may ignore it and the police may do nothing to enforce it.  If you’re with someone who’s not happy unless they’re inflicting pain and control over you, then there are 3 things to do:
  1. Seek assistance. No one should have to endure domestic violence. You can call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 and visit Womenslaw.org, a state-by-state directory of domestic violence shelters in the U.S.
  2. Write them a goodbye note wishing them well on their journey. In the letter, tell them that you need to move on. Don't send the note but burn it, as you imagine seeing the back of their head as they walk away from you.
  3. Spend time working with a counselor. No matter what your means, there are many resources to help you get through this, stand up for yourself in a way that does not bring harm upon you and move forward. 
No matter your circumstances, know that you have options, You are a being full of love and no one should have to endure a relationship that is not for their highest good. Moving forward after a break up is an opportunity to write a new chapter in your life. Who knows, it just may be the BEST chapter, thus far.

Wishing you peace this day and always,

Amazing Things Happen When You Follow Your Guides



I awoke this morning, thinking of a delicious event that occurred earlier this year being shown the pleasures of life. In typical throwback Thursday style I am recalling this instance and sharing it with all of you once more. 

It was March, and I had just flown into LAX from 3 months in Mexico where I had volunteered in the barrio. Dressed in true LA style, I met up for lunch on Sunset with friend Tone, a producer for reality TV. After a great visit I headed off to a hotel for the evening, before making my way back to Sedona.

Unfortunately, not knowing LA, I got lost.  I took it in stride as I turned right on the only road name I recognized, Wilshire Blvd. I figured if I was going to be lost, at least I would do it in style. I drove for several minutes into Beverly Hills. As I drove past this upscale Beverly Hills restaurant called Bazaar by José Andrés, my heart fluttered and something inside, told me to turn around. I said out loud to my guides, 'Really? You want me to go to the one of the most exclusive restaurants in Beverly Hills?' I shook my head from side to side indicating that there was no way I was going to turn around, yet my car practically steered itself around the block making its way back to the valet station. 'Okay, but I am only having a small glass of sparkling wine, then I'm out of here,' I said to them adamantly.

I was graciously greeted by the manager as I entered and found a comfortable seat at one of their culinary bars. I ordered my sparkling wine and sat there watching the chef orchestrate tapas like no other, adorning them with several of the many eatable accouterments that lay on the 20 foot table before me.  I was in awe of this place, the people and the atmosphere. 

Then something happened! 

The universe provided me with deliciousness, reminiscent of the corporate VP life that I left behind.  I was literally provided with life's great tastes, as they magically appeared in front of me, the staff asking me to try them gratis. That's right you heard me correctly, gratis. I was their special guest tonight.  I was overwhelmed with appreciation for the staff’s professionalism, talent and courteousness as they educated me on the different tastes on their menu, guiding me through my first nitrogen infusion experience. ‘These creations would surprise and delight even the most discerning and cultured palette,’ I thought.  I think even Andrew Zimmern would be proud as I took my time to enjoy the gastronomic delicacies, each tantalizing my tongue, their flavors popping as they combined in my mouth. I sighed in true orgasmic fashion, savoring each mini masterpiece.

I didn't understand why from the moment I entered that I was treated like a celebrity. 'Did they recognize me as a famous author and spiritualist?'  I chuckled. Although I would like to believe that was true, I doubt that anyone in that restaurant or LA knew who I was.

I wondered how this happened as the "A" list treatment continued. The reason became clear when a New York businesswoman sat beside me as we struck up a conversation and we spent an hour or so exchanging spiritual ideas and concepts.  'Ah ha,' I surmised, 'that's why you kept me here so long.' 

I may never know if that exchange was for my benefit, hers or for both of us, and it really doesn't matter. All I know was that the exchange was for the highest good of all. 

When I experience something incredible like this, I often joke saying, ‘The only thing better would be kicking back in jeans enjoying a beer with George Clooney or Matt Damon as we fish by the arch.’  Well Matt and George, I’m sorry, but even hanging with you would pale in comparison. It was an amazing experience that I'll remember for years to come.

So once again I say to you: Go with the flow and follow the direction from your guides. Remember that the universe showers you with indescribable pleasures when you believe. 

Don't be afraid to spread your love with everyone you meet.

Wishing you a day filled with love and blessings

When Sleep Does Not Come


I rolled around in bed this morning trying to find a comfortable position. I turned left, then right, but sleep did not come. It has been a long time since I had trouble getting to sleep and I wondered what was so embedded in my mind that I could not fall off that cliff into slumber.
So I pulled out all my sleep inducing tricks:

  • I tried a trick my mother told me about when I was young. She used to tell me to imagine that I was staring at a black piece of paper. But alas, it did not work.
  • I tried meditation while I lay in bed. I took deep breaths, focusing on the air traveling in and out of my nostrils, quieting my thoughts. No dice.
  • I counted backward from 100, but when I got to the final countdown of ten, nine, eight, I opened my eyes, frustrated.
  • I settled down and tried the last technique I was aware of, counting those funny looking sheep, you know, like the ones you see in the mattress commercials; but they all shook their heads at me as they headed over that fence.
I sat up and racked my brain for the cause of my disturbance.  Did I have too much caffeine earlier in the day? No, that wasn’t it. Was I obsessing over some trivial issue? No sir.

Was I excited about something to come? Nope, that wasn’t it either.

The more I racked my brain over why I could not get to sleep the more I could not sleep. Ah, ha!

Stop overthinking everything. Sometimes, you just can’t sleep!

Wishing you restfullness,

Uncluttering your Life (A Poem)



Uncluttering your Life (A Poem)

If you let yourself get bogged down with stuff,
You're missing the reason why we're here.
Collecting things may tickle your heart,
As you fill up your cart,
But they'll keep you from breaking free.

For it's self-love that is the key,
That allows us to truly see,
As we keep ourselves clear,
With not too much stuff near,

Open to all possibilities!

Wishing you a day filled with clarity,

Kissing is Underrated


Kissing is underrated The fire begins with the kiss
For those who think that all relationships are dysfunctional, you cannot see me, but I'm sticking my tongue out at you. 
If you know me, then you know that I can find something  romantic about a rock in the middle of an alligator invested Alabama swamp located near Bubba's momma’s moon shining operation.  

It's this way of being as well as something more that has provided me with the opportunities for some wonderful moments for sharing intimacy.
And, I've always been all about the kiss. As I have mentioned in a previous post, I believe in kisses that last an hour. And this is not any ordinary kiss. It is ones face gently cupped in the others hands, very slow and intense, with eyes open as you meet your partners gaze and melt into each other. It's soft and sweet, like savoring the ripest peach. It's playful and meanders to the forehead and ears before it finds its way back to the corners of the mouth. It includes the gentle touch of the hand, the caress of the arm or shoulder that ignites the flame, making the perfect aphrodisiac. It IS the allure of all the possibilities and is followed by long conversations, smiles and time shared. 

For years my girlfriends would ask me advice about the guys they dated. And I would always ask then the same question:

Are you a candle or firecracker? 

I mostly got looks of bewilderment. Then with a wink and a smile I explained that a firecracker has a quick short fuse, it burns very hot and with a big impressive bang it’s all over. Compare that to a candle that after illumination burns hot and steady for a long time.

It's my understanding that slow long kisses and taking your time are the beginning of lighting that candle and a winning combination as you discern if this person is someone with whom you want to share your most sacred self.

So when you fancy someone that fancies you, take your time, get to know them, kiss them long, gaze into their eyes and be the candle and not the firecracker. 

There really is no rush, so keep your shirt on honey! 


Wishing you a day filled with Love,

Doggie Zen - A video


Below is a video that we shot last night when I was at a friend's sharing my love and talent with their little dachshund. It was seconds before he was in zen mode, relaxed and asleep.



It is the love that we share that is easily felt and expereineced by others, espectially animals who seem to be more intuned with this vibration. Share your love energy with every living creature as you are love to all.

Have a day filled with love,

Pray for Those Who Persecute You


Pray for those who persecute you [Matthew 5:44] and love the people who hate you. Wow, this is difficult but don’t let their fabrications and harassment get to you. If you do then they win by sucking you into their drama, perpetuating the pain and harm that they have inflicted upon you. Have only compassion as you pray for them.  You may be saying, 'LeeZa, Compassion?.But this guy or gal spread lies about me all over town, threatened harm to my person and property, stole from me, hit me and more? How can I have compassion for them? You can't have had it as bad as I have.' 

Well, my dears, when you live in light and start becoming famous, strange people come out of the darkness trying to bring you down, so yes, living in Sedona, AZ, I have had my share of dealings with bottom feeders. Whatever the incident is, it’s in the past and that’s where it should stay. The past could be yesterday, last month or last year. You’ve moved forward and it doesn’t matter if they haven’t and have nothing better to do then relive their abuse to you, feeding on it like a vulture consuming a carcass.  So yes, pray to whomever you higher power is that they get peace and move forward as well.

Now I’m not saying that you should allow them to control you in anyway, chase you away, oh no, definitely not. You should certainly stick up for yourself, but take a moment and think about what a unhappy person they must be and the continual misery in their minds that they live with each day. If you look at it from that angle, I have compassion for them.

You should too. Remember that we are all trees in the wind of experience. Some are breezes, some are gusts, and some are storms, making us sway right or left. Those that do not break us, make us stronger.


Wishing you a day filled with compassion,

Volunteering can Improve YOUR Health!


Did you know that when you give of your time to help others you are also helping yourself?  That’s right, the NY Daily News isn’t the only one that has it right when they published this article based on studies that showed that volunteering can improve mortality for subjects who volunteer versus the ones who don't. I also found information on Psychological Science's site about how Providing Social Support May Be More Beneficial Than Receiving It


Some of us have known for years that the act of giving has a tremendously positive affect not only on the receiver, but also on the giver. Okay, so I’m here once again on my soapbox asking you to help others. I know that you've heard this from me before, but it is so very important that I drill this home so I am saying it again. And let's face it; It just feels great when you are helping others, doesn't it?

You don’t have to join the Peace Core or spend 18 hour days for a straight month volunteering to make a difference. Although studies say that 100 hours a year is ideal, as few as a couple of hours a month can make a difference to your own well-being. I don’t care how busy your schedule is, everyone can spare a couple of hours a month.

I make it a point to volunteer wherever I am. I’m actually sort of a professional volunteer these days, seeking out opportunities.  When I was recently in the sleepy little town called Abadiânia, Brazil, at the Casa de Dom Ignacio I found my way back to the kitchen where they peel, core, slice and chop about 50 bushels of vegetables each week in preparation of the blessed soup that John of God serves gratis to visitors.  In a couple of weeks I was made co-manager of the 40 plus volunteers, a badge that gladly wore for the few months I stayed in town. It gave me such great joy giving back to a town who had given me so much. A Couple of My Volunteer efforts

Whether you are traveling or staying home, there are a ton of great volunteer opportunities for you.  Start by asking at your church, synagogue, temple or mosque; your school, university or library, your local St Vincent de Paul, Goodwill or Salvation Army. Local and long distance opportunities abound. Below are places you can start:
  • VolunteerMatch.org
  • Idealist.org
  • HandsOnNetwork.org
I always feel so blessed to be able to help others. I know you will too!

Wishing you the gift of giving your time today,

It is Love that Conquers All


It is love that conquers all. Okay, so I started today's article a little strong considering the time of the day, but sometimes we have to be strong in order to get people's attention.

The Love of self guides you through life. When you realize that there are only 2 emotions, love and that which is not love, then you get it. 

I am often asked, 'What is love?' 

It is that deliciousness that is unparalleled by anything else. It is that inner feeling of peace; the first breath of cold air in the morning that bathes your lungs in crispness as you watch the sunrise and that sigh as you see it set. Love is the euphoric feeling as the scrumptious fragrance of life infiltrates your nostrils and that compassion for all you encounter no matter how they act toward you.

Once you know that you ARE Love, well, then every experience becomes love and you realize that you can do ANYTHING.


Wishing you a day filled with Love,

Why am I Feeling Drained for No Reason?

#supernatural #ghosts #tl #spirits #inspiration #motivation #worthiness #truth #smudging
Do you ever feel drained for absolutely no reason?  When Ghosts pay a visit.

I make my living writing and if I cannot get motivated to write, then I am out of business, if you know what I mean. I was recently in a place for a month in seclusion working and sleeping in the same area, as I attempted to complete a project.  I felt drained, lethargic and couldn't seem to get the energy to accomplish my task. If you know me, this is not in character.  

It took me about 2 weeks to figure out what was going on. 

Do you know? 

It was low vibrational energies in the home where I was staying that were sucking me dry. Yes, I know what you’re thinking; how can this be true? Believe me that it took years for this accomplished pragmatic intelligent woman to believe in the supernatural, but my dears, there is validity to some of the stories we've all heard. Spirits or lower vibrational energies, as I like to call them, can attach themselves to places, material items, animals, plants, and people. smudging removes the lower vibrational energies from your home.
Once I figured it out, I smudged the entire home and myself. 

Want to know more about how and when to smudge, then take a look at my article, How and When to Smudge that includes information about sage, prayers to say when smudging, and a detailed question and answer section about materials to use while smudging, lighting, putting out a smudgestick, reuse and more.

I hope that this helps you resolve this matter in your heart. Boy did that make a difference after I completed a full smudge of the home, animals and myself; I was back in business in no time.

Wishing you a day filled with Love and Light,
