I have exciting and growth promoting and nurturing events to share with you for the next few months. Excited to be your host and having you with us…
It is this time of the year you will see a few articles about what you need to become, what to do with yourself and how you need to be this or that. Also, it is often this time of the year most people decide on how they need to be something other than they are. In both cases, there is a discontentment, and discord with one’s self. Sometimes guilt and shame is imposed through the thought leaders or teachers in the name of self-improvement to tell people they are not “good enough” unless they buy their offering or subscribe to their thought patterns to be better…
I remember having this conversation with my students and mentees a few years ago. I said, my re-solution this year and all the years to come is “not to improve myself” and arriving at the pace of appreciation, accordance and harmony with my own existence, grace, the beauty and creativity, and resourcefulness that I am!
I see year after year my clients struggling with themselves trying to change by resisting a part of them. As a coach, I can assure you, no change can take place by resistance. Only acceptance will bring energies of compassion and movement into existence. Plus, resolution, means resolving something, coming to terms with it. Therefore, some superficial goals, like losing weight or exercise will not hit the core challenge inside that is waiting to be heard, come to terms with and resolved…
So, the very first week of this year I am writing to create awareness around the information you might be getting overloaded with that has shame or guilt-based programming; social psyche and conditioning that will lead you into creating superficial goals, which will further alienate yourself from you.
My invitation is to take a moment to step out this non-ending circle of “needing to be improved” for a moment to reflect and plug you into you. Observe and appreciate your unique divinity, your grace, your creativity, and beauty that you are here to express. Make this year a “Celebrating You” year. In JOY appreciating you as the creative, resourceful, and whole human being. Make a year of nothing to improve here, move along year!! And a year to exit from the social programming that tells that you are not enough.
May your year be filled with grace that is equivalent to yours. May you see your beauty, light, and peace through the mirrors of your life. May you engage in activities and thoughts that are honoring you.
Happy and a blessed New Year.

After significant life events, there often is a need to rebirth ourselves and rise from the ashes so that we can fully land into the new space, new way of living. Any new beginning requires recognition of the depth of that beginning and an assimilation process to it as if you are just taking your first breath in this new starting life. One would realize such a significant transformation by finding faith in its body and mind and gently releasing one’s self into this experience.
So then, how can one give a rebirth to oneself? It requires a warrior-like awareness to understand one’s own behavioral patterns, where the fear is sliding in and contaminating the responses. It necessitates a significant amount of quality time with one’s self so that one can reestablish new neural pathways to create new, loving, kind, compassionate responses to whatever is happening in the experience. And it requires qualities of yin, the feminine principle of nourishment, stillness, love; after all you need a time to gestate prior to the birth. When one takes up such a journey of change in anything such as anew relationship, moving to a new location, starting up a new career, etc., meditation; daily restorative, hatha, yin types of yoga practices, gentle diet, being in the nature and any kind of creative activity where one connects to one’s higher-self becomes very helpful. I have an upcoming guided meditation session to support any kind of new life.

May you find the courage to rebirth yourselves into the most potent and fertile versions of you with ease…
