Spiritualist, Practice what you Preach

It's a small world, they say and when you're a spiritualist, you tend to migrate toward other spiritualists. That has been the case for me over the past 30 years as I have rubbed elbows with many now well-known spiritual beings before anyone knew who they were. 

Just so you know, no one is born a spiritualist, but in my opinion becomes one by learning spiritual practices, experiencing years of less than pleasant situations and eliminating fear-based emotions. It's this trifecta that helps us gain wisdom and insight as we ascend and move forward.

I shook my head from left to right when I was coming up in the ranks to see people preaching this and that, but in the own personal life they weren't following their own advice. Now, of course I have only compassion when I see others seeking truth ironing out the wrinkles in their spiritual robes.

I am a total believer of walking the walk as an example, no matter what brand of elixir is toughest for you to swallow. One of my hardest things is having to deal with people when I want to move away from an unpleasant situation. People who know me may laugh spouting, LeeZa, is this the same women who made decisions for multi-million dollar technology projects? Yes that's me. But when it comes to possibly being less than compassionate when speaking to people, I can at times win the prize, my strong nature blunt and not the least bit sugary. I know that when I speak to people I can have an extremely positive effect and well, it gives me a pit in my stomach when I have to say no or something that is less than ecstatic to someone. Words have extreme power and I don't want to let any of mine hurt another being, if I can help it.  

Funny, but in Abadiania, when you ask the entities to learn discernment you certainly get to utilize the skill set of saying no or enough, more often than you can shake that stick or bounce that ball.  This is something that I'm faced with today, having to tell a beautiful being that it is time I move on in such a way that does not crush them or stunt their spiritual growth while at the same time not let myself be taken advantage of.  Good practice for me, the love bug. I'm sure that when it's complete I will gain new insight and wisdom that will help me move forward with a new tool in my tool chest. 

Wishing you a day filled with happiness from your eat pray love girl,

From World News (WN) Network

An article from World News (WN) Network about my new novel, The Awakening, the first in the Beyond the Veil of illusion series.

Clooney and Amal Engaged or Another Clooney Prank?

Clooney Engaged or Prank? One has to ask themselves with the string of pranks that George Clooney has played over the years if it's true that he is really engaged to Amal Alamuddin.
Remember, this is the same man who spends years planning elaborate jokes. Since there is no official word yet from the Clooney camp, I am still holding my breath. I do, however have a couple of things to say on the subject.
George, if you have found true love, them my best wishes to you and your future Mrs. Shall you both share a love that transcends time and space, filled with kisses as sweet as the ripest peach and starry evenings.
If it is a prank, then I bow to your magnificence and beg for your tutelage. (last article on Clooney Prankster Team). And of course I still want to kick back have a beer as we compare the holes in our jeans while fishing at the arch

Wishing you both joy and happiness.

Touching the Lives of Others

As I spend time at the Casa of Dom Ignacio in Abadiania Brazil I am touched by all the wonderful people that come here. Most travel the long distance seeking physical healing. There is one man in particular originally from Russia who came here to heal from brain cancer. His smile is as bright as the sun and his eyes warm your heart.

I speak to a lot of people in my travels sharing words of love, encouragement and strength. I am often told that my time with them has helped them in some way. But when my Russian friend was leaving he hugged me and said that I made a difference in his life, tears formed in mine. Funny how a few kind words can touch one's heart.

As I continue to serve others and spread the love, I think of people like my Russian friend who endure experiences far beyond my comprehension and are still able to share their love with others.

Wishing you blessings this day and always,

Eliminating Doubt in Yourself


So often in my life I have been faced with a crossroad. Have you? It's when we are at that place that helps us blossom and move forward that we are faced with with great life changing decisions.  

Let me give you an example.
John is an incredible artist but has always made a decent income as an auto mechanic. His job pays the bills but it's not his passion. When he rises each morning all he can think about is putting his brush in hand and painting the sun as it rises over the meadow. That IS his joy. 

In his heart, John really wants to be a painter, but something inside him believes that this path, the one that truly gives him pleasure is harder and unattainable so he puts down his paintbrush and continues to work at the auto shop reserving his painting for the few hours a week when he has time.  He is miserable every minute that he is tuning up someone's car as he dreams of being in Paris on the Champs-Élysées painting by the Arc de Triomphe. Why did John not follow his passion and joy and take the easier road that made him less than happy? Why did he not take that chance?

Doubt.

Each emotion we feel has a vibration and like my recent article on Vibrating Love, doubt is one of those lower fear based vibrations.  Let's just lump it with uncertainty, shall we. So often people tell me that they dream of being this or that, yet they never follow through, always having some excuse that is really masking feelings of fear of the unknown and doubt in themselves.  And we take the more comfortable yet unsatisfying road due to old patterning of unworthiness of success, a seed planted inside us long ago.

The universe is telling you something yet you are too afraid to believe that you can be something more, following your joy. And when did this happen? 

Children are not born with doubt.  I'm pretty sure that doubt was introduced into most people's mind early in their childhood when they expressed a desire to do this or that and someone with whom they placed their trust planted that seed of uncertainty within them. How old were you when you first realized doubt?  Take a moment to remember.

Now, it's time to remove that sprouting plant from your garden.

Take that first time instance of doubt instilled within you, if you can. Hold it in your mind and release it, exploding it into a million pieces as you tell the universe that doubt in yourself no longer serves you. 

Now, go.......discover what gives you joy.

Wishing you blessings this day and always,

Saturday

Noticing Your Energy

Have you ever been in a place in your life where you feel love and bliss most of the day? I can tell you that it is the most delicious feeling to be in your heart. With that said, when you are, even the most subtle shifts in your energy field to that which is not bliss are disturbing.

This was my experience this morning, when I was in a state that was less than bliss upon waking. I noticed that there was something off, but had no idea why, feeling like a bull in a china shop. It was a unsettling in my stomach, a sharp edge in my tone and a deliberate harshness to my stride.

I had to take a few minutes and re-center to get back into my heart before proceeding.

Be aware of your energies as you move through your day and move back to your heart when you feel those lower vibrations start to creep in.

Wishing you a day filled with the Love,

Vibrating Love


Vibrating Love 
I am always blessed when I can stay in the higher vibrations, frequencies that are so delicious that they tickle the hearts of everyone I meet. Actually it's more than that and I blush just a little as I write this. When I started focusing on vibrating only love, well, a strange thing happened when it came to the opposite sex. 


I started attracting pretty much every man that I came across, even the grumpy ones, so watch out Simon Cowell. Now I'm certainly not the tallest, thinnest, prettiest or youngest, and I'm okay with that, but it became apparent that there was something to this vibrate love thing when this guy that was barely 22 years old jumped over a table in the passenger lounge at the airport to get to me  before I boarded my plane and ask for my number. At first I thought that someone was pulling my leg and I was at the butt end of a George Clooney joke. I was in a rush to get on the plane, so I gave him a card that only had my website email and no phone. By the time I got off the plane I had already received an email. He really wanted to take me out, no joke. I'm not age conscious, but I draw the line when I have shoes older than my potential dates and graciously declined. When situations like that started to happen everywhere, I knew I was onto something. Beside the internal benefits of making you feel incredible, there have been many other side benefits when interacting with others.living in the love vibration  Vibrate Love


Below is a summary of the concept: 

Each emotion has a corresponding vibration, with unconditional love having the highest vibration. Let me take a step back and tell you a little bit about the frequency of emotions so you understand how we vibrate who we are each moment.

Depending on who you read, like Hawkins there is a corresponding numeric value associated with each emotion. I try to simply things for people, dividing the emotions into high vibrational and lower vibrational categories. Below is a list of each.

High Vibrations
Love

Unconditional Love
Joy/Elation/Happiness
Compassion/Empathy/Charity
Low Vibrations
Fear


Fear/Terror
Anger/Rage/Annoyance/Irritation
Hatred/Contempt/Disgust
Jealous/Greed/Envy/Judgement
Control/Ego/Insecurity/Obsession
Stress/Shock/Overreaction
Worry/Anxiety/Embarrassment/Guilt
Helplessness/Powerlessness/Doubt
Depression/Despair/Disappointment

The simple rule of thumb related to vibrations is that when you are in that Love vibration you feel warm and fuzzy inside. When you are in a fear vibration, you don’t feel very good, do you? That’s your ruler.

I know that it sounds simple, but it really is that simple.   Now staying there, that is where practice makes perfect.   

Many a scholar has said that when we stay in the highest vibration, love, we are headed for enlightenment, like Buddha and Jesus. Pretty good company to be in, don't you think? 

I am certainly not there yet, but do not to beat myself up when I momentarily slide into a lower vibration. That is part of self love. You have to love the person you are right now as you gain more insight and move forward. And if you want to hope of ever achieving unconditional love you first need to learn how to love yourself. When you do, then you can transmute everything, including your temporary backslides into love and you're no longer living in the misery of the mind, that place where all the lower vibrations dwell.






Think about this: If you could stay more in that love vibration, what a delicious world indeed, heaven on earth, nirvana; what a pleasure it would be waking each morning, singing as you greet each person on the street, smiling and touching their hearts, offering your assistance from a place of true compassion and unconditional love.  

So, take notice of your state of emotion and try to turn that frown upside down, that tight lip into a smile and share your love with your fellow Earth traveler.


Wishing you a day filled with the Love vibration,

Across the Universe



When asked to write about recent movies that I have seen, I had to admit that being in the middle of nowhere Brazil does not lend itself to finding a movie theatre.  I did however crawl out from under the rock I’ve been hiding under and finally watch a YouTube recording of Across the Universe. It really blew me away. Beside the fact that the lead character has the sweetest accent and a buttery voice, he is also not bad to look at. Add in the fact that the story is set around Beatles music it became a winner for me.

I am finding it difficult to say with any certainty what other works I have seen that would fall into the same category. I guess you will just have to look for yourself and see what you think
Not my typical post, but this film does fit into my genre as it looks at love and life past the two-by-two illusion into something that stretches the imagination and makes us think of something other than the homogenized world and the ticky-tac.

How to Attract Your Soulmate, Your One True Love


I was traveling abroad making appearances and in one week alone I had been asked almost a dozen times several questions about soul mates like, "How do I attract my soulmate?, How to I find my soul mate?, Do soul mates really exist? Why can't I find my soul mate?  How can I have true love? How do I manifest a good man?" and my favorite, "Can I smudge for a husband."


What I discovered is that people are similar no matter where they come from.  Everyone wants to find that special once in a lifetime true love that transcends time and space. Do you blame them? Because it seems to be the theme, I thought it was time that I shared with all of you a couple of tidbits about soul mates and soul connections including the definition of a soul mate, what a soul mate is not, the purpose of soul connections and a 3 step process to attract that soul mate, your one true love faster than you can say, ‘well hello there.’  


For the lovers of Fifty Shades of Grey, you'll enjoy reading a delicious story about soulmate connections called Beyond the Veil of Illusion - The Awakening, now available on Amazon

What is a Soulmate?

The first thing you need to do is know what a soulmate actually is. It's my understanding that we all are part of a particular soul family. A good example is likening your soul family to an extended family of about 250-2000 relatives, except your soul family is so much bigger with each one being considered a soul mate.

How can you recognize a Soul Mate?
You recognize your soul family by the instant connection you share. A soul mate can be either male or female and can be the same sex or the opposite sex to your own. 

A perfect example of a soul mate connection that I experienced was when I was traveling abroad and a Middle Eastern women and I met by accident and instantly connected.  We spent several hours speaking in English, then all of a sudden she started speaking to me in Farsi. She looked at me sideways when I didn't respond.  I nonchalantly said, “You do know that I have no idea what you are saying.”  She apologized and we both got a big laugh as it happened several times again before we made our farewells for the evening. 

Not all soul mates are Created Equal 
I say this in jest, but I often get the question, I thought a Soul Mate was my Life Long Partner, My True Love? If he was my soul mate, why did he hurt me?” 


Not all the soul mates we meet are intended for a long lasting physical relationship. It can be confusing when we meet one of our soul brothers or sisters because our work together is not always apparent, especially when we feel that instant connection and attraction. With thousands of your soul family members floating around, each of them we meet serves a purpose and we need to be open to doing the work we agreed to with them which may not necessarily be a physical relationship. We meet these people because we have both made some cosmic agreement long ago, that we would play out some experience with them, help them on their way, complete a karmic dance together, learn and grow from each other.  

So no darling you are not supposed to sleep with every soul mate you meet!


But even knowing what I have just explained, does not make it any easier when you meet someone with whom you share an instant attraction; who wears their soul at the tips of their amazing crystal blue eyes. As hard as you try not to look into them, you do and you start to fall. So for Pete's sake try and STOP. Pull yourself together as you get up and think sensibly before the dance becomes something it shouldn't. And if that tango lasts too long and leads to a dip or two as you cross the boundary with a soul mate that you were not intended to be with in a physical sense, don't beat yourself up. It has happened to the best of us, as we're tickled by that intense connective energy throughout our lifetime. Just brush yourself off, chalk it up to experience, learn something from the encounter and continue to move forward.


Attracting Your One True Love
But yes, there will be soul mates that we meet that we can fall in love and live together for a long period in this physical lifetime.  So if I can have many soul mates how do I know who my one true love is? If you're looking for long lasting true love, then you're you may be seeking the soul mates closest to something people call a twin flame. Imagine someone who can finish your sentences, where you can't tell where you end and where they begin, your hearts almost beat as one unit. Now you're describing soul mates close to your twin flame. 

So, you want to put out to the universe the signal that you’re ready to meet that ideal mate, that person with whom you’ll share long hours gazing into each other’s eyes, kisses as sweet and soft as the ripest peach and shared smiles that melt glaciers. 

Not as difficult as you think since you are the magician, the creator of your own reality on this planet. It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3 as you attract your soulmate in 3 easy steps:

1. Write a list with each quality you want in a mate and prioritize your list.
Be as specific as possible and write everything as a positive, since the Universe does not distinguish negatives. By the way, if your list has over 200 items, that's okay, I won’t call you a picky bitch. You have to know what you want to get it, right?


2. Put the list away
That’s right, you heard me; put the list away and forget about it. You wrote the list and put in your order to the Universe. You even spent the time making sure that the Universe knows what's most important to you. You've completed the important step asking for exactly what you want and the Universe ALWAYS delivers. So, don't obsess over it and move to the next step, because it's MORE important than creating the list in the first place.


3. Work on yourself
Work on loving and nurturing you and forget about the mate. Do you want to be the god or goddess when this amazing person that you created in that list you just wrote finds you? Or will you still be toting the same baggage you had from your last failed relationship? Yes, you darling. I could care less if they are Louie Vuitton bags. They still hold all that dirty laundry: unreleased hurts, worthiness issues, fears and insecurities. 

It makes me sick when I think of that scene in the movie Jerry McGuire where he kneels and says "You complete me." Oh my God, whoever said that two halves don't make a whole was right. Actually, it’s just two dysfunctional incomplete beings trying desperately to find completion in another person.  I'm speaking from experience when I tell you that it's always a recipe for disaster and more important to work on oneself and become whole before dating.  Before you say to someone “in-to-me-see,” (intimacy) first you have to look into yourself and be honest. attract your soul mate now


Spend time and work on yourself, even if it means that you take a break from dating after a recent breakup. For goodness sake, would it kill you to take time to heal before jumping back in the saddle? If you don't the next one could potentially be a lot worse than what you just had?  Trust me, you’ll be healthier as well as happier and your energy will show it, exuding a higher vibration that ultimately attracts more quality mates. It’s when we find our inner love that our energy pattern changes, becoming delicious and irresistible to everyone we meet. Don’t worry, you’ll have YOUR pick of the multitude that will come your way and get good practice in discernment as you graciously turn down suitors that are not that god or goddess that is deserving of you.


Believe me, the universe will send your one true love when you are ready.  And one day in the future when you stumble upon that list after you meet that person and realize that they have the plethora of qualities you scribbled on that now slightly worn piece of paper, you'll smile as you think, hey that eat pray love girl, LeeZa Donatella, was right again.

Blessings and wishes for you to attract your ideal mate that wears their soul at the tips of their eyes, sweeping you off your feet as you dance cheek to cheek,

You are Perfect Now

Something I hear all the time is: When I get x job, x amount of money, more muscular, that new hair style, car, lose 15 pounds, I will DO this and that or be this or that. I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea.

Sweetheart, if you are going to wait to live your life until tomorrow, let me tell you this: tomorrow never comes. You have to be content and satisfied with where you are right now. And when you are then each new day you will get a little closer to your brand of perfection. The funny thing is that once you find your inner love and are okay with where you are at right now, well, you realize that you are perfect. And when you realize that you are perfect then you are worthy of, well everything.

Do you get it now? Good. So do not look for perfection in yourself tomorrow. See it where it exists, which is your reflection in the mirror today.

Sending you love this day and always. Blessings from your personal eat pray love girl,

Sedona Crystal Skull Meditation

Crystal Skulls Meditation
Right before I left Sedona for Brazil on my quest to revisit some of the spiritual places I loved in South America, I received an invitation to meditate with over 200 crystal skulls. Over the years I had heard that crystal skulls existed, but had never heard of any one having so many of them. I was honored to be included as one of the few people that they allowed to meditate with them this one evening, as I sought to bring my awareness to the next level.  

I felt very privileged for the opportunity to be in the same room with such energetic symbols and knew that they was a once in a lifetime experience. 'What will I take away?' I thought as I drove the 20 minutes to the neighboring town of Clarkdale. Time would only tell. I was just so tickled and giddy that I could hardly sit still in my seat as I bounced to the tunes on the radio. When I arrived I was greeted by two lovely people, Jeanne and Jaap, my hosts for this wondrous 2 hour journey of discovery.

I removed my shoes and gazed upon the over 200 skulls organized in circles upon circles in the center of the room. They seemed to be divided into major sections, each location's name written on a small place card. I wondered what that meant, but never got a chance to ask. In front of each section was also a cushion where a person would sit in meditation. Each section also had a jar of water, which I found out was infused with some energy from the area. Tonight's mediation was focused on the 6th chakra, the third eye or what some call the brow chakra where all intuition comes. The water was infused with the 6th chakra's energy, from a Sedona location representing that chakra. We were instructed to drink the purified infused water to help us on our journey and my heart leapt as I opened the jar.  'I am truly blessed, ' I thought. What better way to start my journey of increasing my consciousness then to focus on this of all other chakras. 'How did they know? How have I not heard of this in the couple of years I have been living in Sedona?'

Well someone knew that I was ready for this, ergo the invitation. I was finally ready to take it to the next level and I was eager to see what I would discover.

I relied on my hosts Jaap and Jeanne to educate me on the process and fill me on on the purpose of the skulls and what to expect from the meditation. I was appreciative of their 20 years each of experience, evident as they shared the history and the science with the group. 

We were asked to close our eyes and connect to one skull, permitted to hold it in our hand. Since my experience is a private one, I will not at this time divulge what happened to me. What I will tell you is that it was life changing and I walked away from this experience a more enlightened person, taking with me ancient information that I will utilize in furthering my spiritual growth and consciousness.

Jaap and Jeanne allowed me to tape them. Below is a video of the interview I performed after the meditation.

Soul Mates and Soul Connections

I have been receiving a lot of questions about soul mates, like: what a soul mate is; how can I find my soul mate; if this person was my soul mate why did they hurt me and a plethora of other soul connection and twin flame related questions.

For lovers of Fifty Shades of Grey, you will enjoy reading a delicious story about soul mate connections called, The Awakening, now available on Amazon to take a peak!

It is my understanding that we all are part of a particular soul family. Now one can argue that there should be only one soul family under God, but based on my studies and experience, I do not happen to agree.  For arguments sake, let’s say that you have an extended family of about 60-100 relatives. Well, this is the approximate size of your soul family. Each one of those can be considered a soul mate, with one exact mirror image of you being your twin flame.

How can you recognize a Soul Mate?
A soul mate is someone that comes from your same soul family. You recognize them by the instant connection you share. A soul mate can be either male or female and can be the same sex or the opposite sex to your own. 

A perfect example of a soul connection I experienced was here in Abadiânia when a Middle Eastern women and I instantly connected.  After we had spent several hours speaking in English, she started speaking to me in Farsi and looked at me sideways when I did not respond.  I nonchalantly said, “You do know that I have no idea what you are saying.”  She apologized and we both got a big laugh as it happened several times again before we made our farewells for the evening. 

What is my Twin Flame?
Imagine someone who had the same traits, thought the same, had the same hangups and faults, same great qualities, same good days and bad days as you and now you are describing your twin flame. Do you want to date a carbon copy of yourself? When it is good, it will be very good, but when it is on a down cycle, it can be unbearable. There are plenty of other soul mates that you CAN have a long lasting relationship with that are not so torturous. 

I thought a Soul Mate was my Life Long Partner, My True Love?
You are talking to the hopeless romantic and I can tell you that not all soul mates are created equally.  

I say this in jest, but I often get the question, “if he or she was my soul mate, why did they hurt me?” It can be confusing when we meet one of our soul brothers or sisters because our work together is not always apparent. People believe that a soul mate can only be our one true love. Well, your wrong, so let me educate you now. 

With thousands of your soul family members floating around, each of them we meet serves a purpose and you are not supposed to have a physical relationship with every soul mate you meet! 
And the ones that we do have a physical relationship with, not all of them will be long lasting. We meet these people because we have both agreed before coming to Earth that we would play out some experience with them, help them on their way, complete a karmic dance together that we perhaps began in a past life, learn and grow from each other, or yes, fall in love and live together for a long period in this physical lifetime.  

But even knowing what I have just explained about does not make it any easier when you meet someone with whom you share an instant attraction; who wears their soul at the tips of their eyes and as hard as you try not to look into them you do and you start to fall. So STOP and pull yourself together as you get up and think sensibly before the dance becomes something it shouldn't. And if that tango last too long and leads to a dip or two as you cross the boundary with a soul mate that you were not intended to be with in a physical sense, don't beat yourself up. It has happened to the best of us  as we are tickled by that intense connective energy throughout our lifetime. Just brush yourself off, chalk it up to experience, learn something from the encounter and continue to move forward.

Sending you love and great soul connections this day and always.

Never Be Embarrassed if it Helps You or Someone Else Grow


To say that it can be a little embarrassing channeling messages for strangers can be an understatement. Let me provide for you an example based on my personal experience.  The other day I was in the shower as I got ready to meet some women for dinner. From my watery heaven I overheard a group talking in the courtyard behind my room. Here I was lathered up, enjoying the refreshing feeling of cool water on my body on a hot day, when I received the overwhelming urge to go out there and join them. ‘You’ve got to be kidding me,’ I said to myself and ignored the call to duty. Oh, no, they were not accepting no for an answer today as I almost felt a hand on my back pushing me out of the shower in an attempt to hurry me up.  ‘For Pete’s sake,’ I thought as I dressed, my hair, dripping wet. ‘What’s the big rush?’

Let me tell you that it’s hard on your psyche, especially if you embarrass easily, interrupting a group in the middle of a talk, but I went back there and asked if I could sit. I was fortunate as the leader, a gal full of love and light said yes and they graciously made room for me.  

I sat there playing the scenarios over in my mind trying to figure out why the Spirits had urged me so intently to go there. ‘Do I tell them about the experience I had in the place where they are headed tomorrow? That must be it.’   So I told the story of me in this place and the butterfly and my experience. As I told it, I thought I would get that instant relief I so often received when I followed the guidance of Spirit. Nope, not this time. There was something else.  There would be no etheric pat on the back yet. Now my inner voice went nuts talking and getting messages back and forth as I tried to get clarification. Ah, it hits me like a ton of bricks; the person and the message that I am here to deliver. I blurt it out, trying not to cringe if it is not well received. And what did I get? A puzzled look.

‘Oh, great, I pissed off with what looks like a perfectly content person.’

I almost feel guilty, but the feeling of relief tells me that the message hit the bulls eye. Anyone who meets me would think that I am confident with a tough skin. What they don’t know is that most times I am petrified at their reaction, but the embarrassment I feel is overshadowed by my desire to deliver the message that belongs to them and them alone.

More often than not, although my messages hit their mark, I receive strange looks and my ego quickly jumps in and says ‘Do they not know that you used to be a senior level Tech VP for the largest bank in the US?' as they look at me as if I have three heads. No, of course they don't and even if they did it does not give the message more credibility.  I have gotten used to it and chalk it up to one of the experiences that I signed up for when I came here.  I put myself out there a lot and have finally gotten to a new attitude that if it helps one person out of 1000 tries then it is worth it.

Besides, I am so much happier since I traded my key to the executive washroom in for a backpack. I do not profess to be a perfect channel, but try my best to do what I can as I continually serve my brothers and sisters with all my heart.

Don't Feel Obligated to Do what you Don't Like


I know I have written about this in some shape or fashion before but feel that it's important to be blunt. I am originally from New York, after all. When I say that you should follow your passion and your joy, I really mean it. Today, if there is something that I am asked to do and I don't want to do it, I really don't do it. I walked away from a long term relationship where I was not happy as well as a very lucrative corporate position that provided me with no joy. And as I walked into the potential darkness of the unknown I knew one thing; that I would be shown the light. I smile as I write this knowing the joy I now experience; it's more wondrous than I could have ever imagined. 

Today, I am tactfully honest about not doing anything that I dislike, No longer do I go to functions that I know I won't enjoy, sit on the couch watching that football game to appease someone else or spend time with people with whom I have nothing in common just to be polite. As far as involving myself in drama, well, let's just say "No Way Jose."  It just proves to be a torture that I am no longer willing to endure. I can easily find more enjoyable alternatives, like trimming my toenails. 

Whoever said that life was sacrifice, didn't know what they were talking about.

So if you love spending time with your aunt Bessy but the thought of accepting an invitation to endure her homemade pot roast makes a small bit of bile move toward the back of your throat, instead ask her over your home or meet out for a special dinner to catch up. You'll surprise yourself how quickly your frown will be turned upside down as you do only what excites you and provides you with pleasure.

As I continually follow my passion I move a little bit closer toward enlightenment and am enjoying the deliciousness of life and the abundance that comes, What's not to love about that?
