Clarity and Confidence:Summer Mindfulness


Summer is one of my favorite times of year. I love to be outdoors and I love the heat! I do not love swimming suits…

Recently,I was blessed to take my daughters (13 and 5) to Kansas City for a few days. This is a yearly trip that includes shopping for clothes AND going swimming. Although I do not cherish the idea of wearing a swimming suit, I do cherish making memories so I do the deal and  wear the darn thing. However, I came home researching body contouring wondering if there was anyway I could do some fine tuning to make wearing a swimming suit much more enjoyable???

After a while, I came to the conclusion that I needed to be more mindful of my body image and the ways I take care of my body. My negative self-talk for not having a perfect body was not going to serve me well. I know that what matters is that I eat well, move well, and think well. I needed to get back to the basics and eat healthy, exercise and meditate if I wanted to have clarity and confidence. I always go back to the foundations of wellness to keep me happy and healthy.

Clarity and Confidence require that you know you are and you know what you need to do to be who you want to be.

Quick Tips for summer mindfulness that you can do right now!

Profound Reminder

Experiences occur that cause us to reevaluate our lives.  Some events that I witnessed this week opened my eyes.  When I say witnessed I am referring to taking a step back and viewing my life as an outsider.  Although I struggled with setting my emotions aside, I had moments of complete clarity. Watching things unfold as a spectator allowed me to gain a different perspective. I understood, if even for brief moments, the role I had played in the creation of events.

My absolute passion is the mind, the brain, the power of thought and how it affects our lives.  I am fascinated by the science  and in awe over how our thinking really creates the lives that we lead.  Even more profound is the fact that at any given moment we have a choice.  We have a choice to change our thinking and thus change our lives by becoming aware of our thoughts and choosing ones that are better suited to leading happier lives.  Sounds simple enough, right?

Well… not so simple for me.  Despite my very clear understanding and absolute love of the mind, my thoughts run like wild-fire creating some very interesting situations to say the least. These situations invoke such an intense amount of emotion that the challenge of choosing a different thought seems damn near impossible. I have gotten so wrapped up in the emotional pain that all I could do was blame and criticize proving that what you resist persist.  And on top of it, I have gotten stuck there. I feel like a prisoner trapped in my own self-defeating mind.

A friend of mine said to me, “You will teach what you need to learn the most.”  What  I love the most I seem to need to be reminded of the most.  This week I was reminded. I was reminded in profound ways of just how I powerful my mind is in creating my life.  I was reminded of exactly what I don’t want and because of that I can choose differently even if it for a brief moment.  It is during those moments that I am at the most peace. It is during those moments that I have a complete understanding of this world and have no need to change it.  True peace of mind seems to come when we can be surrounded by chaos and yet have peace in our hearts.

Peace of mind and love to all my friends and family!

Struggling to find a topic to write about today I “Googled” my favorite subject: Mind Power.  The power of the mind kept me curious as a child and as adult it has become my passion.  The complexity and power of thought is profound.  The power in the unfamiliar silence without thought just as magnificent and perhaps the place of most peace. Often it the place we seldom visit!!!  My fascination with the ability quiet the chatter as well as use the thoughts we do have for good continues to grow. My desire to teach this feels as though I have finally fine tuned a purpose in my life. Please email me for information on classes and private sessions

The poem below caught my attention when looking to feel inspired and I found it  The site has some interesting information for those curious about the power of the mind.  Think about this poem:


Mind is not a constant, its concentration waxes and wanes.  When the mind wanes the smallest you take action and follow through the next action.  Don’t let your spirit drop. Thoughts are at the top of a hill. Unchecked and attended the water will begin to flow down one part of the slope and will begin to form a well-worn gully. You’ve got to divert the spring at its source.
