Dream Big


I never know where the inspiration for my next article will come from. Sometimes it comes from an experience, other times from something I've seen or heard. Today's article is about dreaming big and it has nothing to do with me. Well, not exactly as I look to someone in my own family whom I admire.

I have several nieces and I have to tell you that they're all wonderful. My nephew is awesome as well. So today, I tip my hat to one of my nieces, who is an amazing woman. She has the strength of a lion. Actually I borrowed and personalized her cover photo 

She has not had an easy life, but when life has thrown her lemons, she has made the sweetest lemonade while continually maintaining her goodness. She is an loving mom, an accomplished student, striving for a degree in a field that will help others.  

She chose to dream big and strive for the brass ring, because she knows that dreams can come true if you believe. Here's to you today, teenie.  I love you!

Remember that you create you believe. You cannot achieve that you do not believe is possible. Let go off those lower vibrational beliefs that are keeping you from realizing your dreams.

Attracting Money and Prosperity - A Red Wallet Story

Red Wallet attracts money, attract abundance, leeza donatella, the state of being love, attracting abundance

I stumbled upon a video a couple of months ago about how using a red wallet attracts wealth and abundance. attracting money and prosperity.

When I mentioned the video to a friend, she sent me this photo of Mahalaxmi, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity depicted here pouring her golden coins into a red purse.


As my current wallet was literally falling apart at the seams, I decided it was time to seek out a new place for my cash and credit cards.  As I shopped, I was reminded of the video and decided that RED would be my color of choice.

So I bought a red wallet. 

It was late in the evening, so the transfer would have to wait until the morning. It was Sunday when I woke up, made my coffee and relaxed on the couch as I slowly moved things around, my old battered wallet serving me well over the past couple of years. 

I will admit to being a little anxious to see if anything would happen now that the transfer to the red wallet was now complete. 

Well something interesting started happening. 

That day I had a list of errands to run with a couple of returns. First I received a free $130 dollar pillow, then a cash refund for a hammock that was somehow not on the credit card receipt that the hammock stand I bought at the same time was on.  A couple of days later I won a $30 raffle at a business function, and again today, I received a refund check in the mail for $65 dollars more than I was told I would receive.

It seemed as if every time I turned around in these first 2 weekssince personally this red wallet as mine, something was being given to me.  


I wanted to share this story with you as well as profess my gratitude to the universe for all the goodness being bestowed upon me.

Adjusting to the New Energies


We’ve seen a subtle shift in energy since the harmonic convergence on 11/11/11 through what people called the end of the world on 12/21/12. Since December 2012 that change has quickened and our frequency needs to shift to remain in harmony and balance.

For many, regardless of whether they are aware that there’s been a shift or not, they do realize that something is different, but they just can’t put their finger on it.

Because these new energies are so different than what most people are accustomed to, it’s driving people to extremes with some awakening while others feeling as if they are spiraling into the abyss. Not handing the new energies well, I’ve seen personalities become volatile, increases in substance abuse, depression and worse. All these people are missing the point, the bigger picture, as they look to the external for solutions.

Is there something we can do to become in alignment with this new energy?

Absolutely. I’ve spent a lot of time myself in past years in reflection and meditation to help increase my awareness and shift. As I put together different texts, guides and meditations for increasing consciousness, harmony and peace, I can give you a quick tip, right now.

Get out in nature for 1 hour a day without any distractions. By that I mean, leave your cell phone, PC, music, booze, drugs, smokes, family and friends at home. Do bring along a mat, blanket or towel and find a place where you can sit or lay in quiet, staring at the natural scene in front of you or the sky. Clear your mind with each breath in and out through your nose. Be present! Keep your mind from wandering by bringing your focus back to your breath This is your time to commune with nature and find your balance. If you can commit to this practise everyday you will never be committed and will align your frequency with the shift.

Sending  you peace,

Is it Safe to Smudge Small Children or around People with Respiratory Issues?

I've received several emails about the safety of burning sage around children, smudging a small infant with sage, smudging when someone in the home has asthma and smudging when someone is using an oxygen tank so I thought it was a good idea to add this article to help others. smudging for beginner
Here are a couple of excerpts from the book, SMUDGING FOR BEGINNERS: Secrets from a Professional by LeeZa Donatella (available on Amazon) for anyone else who may have the same question.

"Some people are sensitive to the smoke from herbs. Take care when smudging around infants and small children who have delicate respiratory systems. Always follow the direction of your doctor if someone in the household has allergies, asthma or another forms of respiratory issues." 
smudging for beginner

"Times When You Can’t Burn Materials Using oils and sage in my practice, there have been occasions where I’m unable to burn sage as part of a cleansing ceremony. This is when I rely on the use of oils and sprays in my tool kit. I always have a Smudging Spritz or Smudging Spray in my smudging toolkit, in case I need to smudge without flame.  I use that along with my Himalayan salt and anointing oil to work through the location."

Wishing you happy and safe smudging,

The F in Fridays


Oh it's Friday, that sweet little day, where thoughts of the weekend dance in our heads, from the second we rise until we say, "Ah, it's quitting time."

We smile as we dress and sail off to work, knowing that in a few hours our reward we will gain. 

So guys and girls, I have a question. Does this sound like you? And if it does, I dare ask what it feels like on Monday through Thursday mornings. Are you dragging yourself out of bed? Do you dread your commute? Are you thinking wouldn't it be nice if you got the same thrill during the work week as you get on Fridays?

You can, actually, when you’re in the state I call "Being Love." Some may call it feeling great all the time. I call it a vibration that is blissful and fun, where the world is a song that plays softly in your head as you dance through your day.

It's time my dears to put the F for FUN, FLAWLESS, FANTASTIC, FANCIFUL, FAVORABLE, FETCHING, FAVORED, FERTILE, FINEST, FLAVORFUL, FLOWING, FOXY, FRAGRANT, FRESH, FRILLY, FRUITFUL and FUNKY back in Friday.

Sending you love and wishing for a Fab-u-lous Friday,

Small Acts of Kindness Add Up


My faith in humanity is continually restored when I witness or am the recipient of a random act of kindness from a stranger. It's when we take time to do something deliberately selfless, whether big is small, that has a positive effect on others that we show who we really are.

Personally, I make it a point to greet everyone I meet and compliment strangers. It is my way of saying, "I see you."

What do you do for someone you don't know to make their day, and how often?

I've noticed that there are definitely certain places in the country where people are more inclined toward kindness. For example, in Reno Nevada, I noticed that drivers are the most courteous to pedestrians with 4 lanes stopping when someone decides to cross. I can tell you from experience that this practise is not the same most other places in the US.

In my time in the South, where gentlemen young and old give up their seat on the Metro to a lady, hold the door, and extend a hand in assistance certainly wins one's favor. What a delicious way for a woman to be treated. 

Take a moment today to do something randomly kind for a stranger. These small kindnesses add up, make you feel great and demonstrate your inner love to the outward world. 

Be Kind!

Sending you love,

How to Win a Goddess



Recent events and questions have spurred me to write today about how to date, keep and win a Goddess.  When I sat down to put pen to paper on the subject, I wanted to ensure that I wrote this from the viewpoint that both men and women can relate to.  First let me explain a little more about what a Goddess is, so readers are able to identify one when they meet her.

A Goddess is that 1 in a million woman, the entire package, who outshines most others. She possesses great beauty, although it may not perfectly align to the Americanized version of the anorexic model.  Her personality is magnetic, her conversation intellectually stimulating, the concepts she discusses shows her deep analytic skills and outside the box thinking.  She has a sense of grace coupled with a strength and power most have never experienced. She is kind, loving and compassionate and whatever she does, including spending time with you, is because she wants to, and not out of a sense of need or obligation. 

Winning favor with a Goddess is attainable if a man wants to put forth the effort.

1. Persistence is the key to attracting this rare gem of a woman.
If a man is really into you, he will move Heaven and Earth to be with you.  Goddess’s are initially attracted to men who go out of their way to show that they are interested.

2.  Bring your “A” Game
There are many men who treat women like the plenty of fish in the sea reference we’ve all heard in our youth. If you’re one of these men, then perhaps this is not the article for you, since you are content to settle for mediocrity. With a Goddess you have to bring your “A” game, making an effort to stand out among all other suitors that she most certainly has. You have to prove to her that you know she is special. Politeness and chivalry goes a long way as does being attentive to her needs. I recall an invite for a drink by a fella, where we met at a restaurant, He procured an outside table and the first thing he did was ask where I wanted to sit. He held out my chair, and pushed it in as I sat, then adjusted the umbrella, ensuring that I was comfortable.  A true gentlemen he allowed me to order my drink before he spoke to the waitress.  This is the kind of thoughtfulness that is attractive to a Goddess. He never even glanced at me when the check came, knowing that it was his pleasure to spend time with me.

3. Do not Rush Her
A goddess will take her time because she knows that the gift of sharing her entire self with her potential mate is sacred.  The man who wins a Goddess is patient, kind-hearted and understanding. He has mastered the art of establishing intimacy without rushing into all physical acts.


A Note to Fellow Goddess’s
Know Your Worth
When you know you’re a Goddess, you accept nothing less than a man who puts forth a 100% effort when wooing you.

I am often taken aback when I meet a Goddess who is unaware of her worth, accepting so much less when it comes to dating.  A Goddess is not desperate, but selective. She is confident and self-assured, knowing that she stands out in the crowd. Coming from an environment of dating when men knew who we were, they acted accordingly, with refinement and chivalry.

A goddess will accept no less than the entire package when it comes to a potential mate. Here is a perfect example.  My friend Jess was invited out for drinks with a man. Upon returning home from the date, she phoned me recounting the events.  “He was kind hearted, polite and chivalrous. We met at the local restaurant at half past 5. We enjoyed a drink as conversation flowed and we munched on complimentary chips and salsa. The waitress checked on us several times, asking if we were ready to order. His response to her was always the same that we were in no rush. I sat there thinking, ”What a testament to his intense focus on me and that he hoped to stretch out this time together for as long as possible.”

She continued to explain that it was over 2 hours later, now after 7pm and she was famished. Although this potential suitor did only ask Jess out for a drink, once it got into the dining hour, offering to at least order something from the menu, even if only an appetizer would have been appropriate.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

Obviously this man did not realize that not being attentive to the needs of a Goddess is one sure fire way to lose any future opportunities to spend time with her. 

I hope that the men who are reading this article have learned something as well as you Goddess’s out there.

Today is Your Brand New Start



As I rose today, I was filled with the most delicious feeling. I was reminded that not everyone feels so glorious in the morning. So today, I want to share with you my philosophy in the hope it will provide you with a new way of thinking. 

You see everyday IS a new beginning..literally. If yesterday sucked, all you have to do is let it go and start fresh today.

Food for thought!

Relax, Revive and Recharge in the Blue Ridge Mountains





I often write and speak about the journey, as we continually travel in this life, navigating a never-ending set of experiences, no matter our sex, race, age or profession. It begins each morning when you open your eyes and continues until you're fast asleep.  It’s when we take those first steps forward with appreciation and excitement at the wondrous things that we will be exposed to that we find that inner peace and ultimate growth.

I’m reminded of this as I write today’s article here meandering in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in North Carolina, taking in all its beauty.

I just love this area, with its crisp mountain air, invigorating hikes, spectacular scenic views and remarkable wildlife. At days end, I landed at the Alpine Inn, in Little Switzerland, NC. As with most things in my life when I go with the flow, I stumbled upon this gem and was glad for it.  





I traveled back in time when I walked in, the energy of this place enhanced by the hospitality of owners Susan and Ron. Built on the mountainside in 1929, it has that old world flavor that seekers of authenticity can appreciate.   

My room had a deck overlooking the expansive valley below. I sat there drinking in the scene, as I relaxed, revived and recharged after a long drive.  



It was shortly after the sun melted behind the mountains, signaling the twilight of another day, that I stirred to the smell of freshly lit kindling burning in a cast iron chiminea around the side of the property. 


I was greeted by several guests and owner Ron telling stories about the area and each other’s travels. Well after dark I said my good nights, retreating to my room.




My bed, decorated with country quilt, was very comfy. I was quick to fall asleep and my internal alarm clock had me stir at predawn. I spent a few moments, appreciating the deliciousness of my surroundings and my comfort in that bed. 

I laid in a state of bliss as I occasionally opened an eye waiting for the sun to begin its ascension. I leapt up as it made its presence known, the view of that sunrise from the deck and window from my room was one of the more magnificent that I’ve seen.  



I soaked in the sun on the dining room deck along with several others seekers of beauty at breakfast, enjoying house made granola. 



I spent the morning watching the local wildlife, as I enjoyed the sounds of song birds and engaged in great conversation with new friends on the deck 





I was excited to discover that the neighboring town of Spruce Pine is home to several mines, with folks boasting around fires in evening about the emeralds, rubies, sapphires, amethysts and other minerals discovered on day excursions.  

Take the time to relax and recharge from the stress of the week in a place where you find peace.
