actualize your dreams

Are you ready to actualize your dreams?

actualize your dreamsDo you have a dream that hasn’t manifested yet? 

You can get discouraged if you have a dream, yet it hasn’t come to reality yet.

Maybe you have taken action steps towards it in the past and have gotten burned, disappointed, hurt or had your pride wounded in some way and put it on the back burner.

It’s like a smoldering flame deep down within you.  You want it to be a reality but a part of you is just too darn tired or afraid to take action on it once again.  Yet, it won’t leave you alone.  It just keeps nagging at you.

Have you ever experienced this in your life? 

If you have the dream in your heart and it won’t leave you alone, you were born with that dream and it is part of who you are.

You owe it to yourself and the world to do whatever it takes to fulfill your dreams!


I know for me it is my dream of finding the love of my life.  Deep within me I know and feel that there is someone special out there just waiting for us to meet and create our life together!  After almost 26 years of being divorced and single, that dream is still there.

Yes, I have gone through all the emotions, thoughts and feelings of giving up, putting it away and not thinking about this dream.

I used to say, “What is wrong with me?” all the time until I realized that there was nothing wrong with me, that it was I who was standing in my own way from realizing this dream.

You can choose to make that smoldering fire a daily suffering or you can choose to make it a burning desire with purpose, passion and results.

Are you allowing your dream to come into reality?

Sometimes you can create such a stringent container of how you want your dream to show up that you aren’t even aware of what is showing up that are foundational pieces of your dream.

I am not saying that you shouldn’t visualize your dreams as that is important.  What I am saying is when you visualize; allow your consciousness to be aware of the energy of the visualization.  Everything is energy and energy doesn’t lie.

I remember turning down the unconditional love of a man that had all the qualities I visualize the love of my life having.  I couldn’t get past that he wasn’t taller than me because in my mind I saw this person being tall, dark and handsome.  I was locked into that was the way he must show up.

You just might be passing up on some pretty awesome things because they don’t  look exactly like how you visualized them.

By allowing yourself to tap into the energy of your dreams and not be so hung up on what it looks likes in physical presence, you will find yourself bringing more dreams into reality.

When you get out of your own way, allow the energy of God/Spirit/The Universe to work with you instead of you working against it, miracles happen.  You fulfill your dreams, and life becomes fun, exciting and worth living.

Do you have a dream that you haven’t brought into reality yet? 

Are you standing in your own way from realizing that dream? 

What would your life be like if you allowed yourself to be open to all possibilities of actualizing that dream today, next month or this year?

Would you be happier in life with the dream as part of your living reality?   Although I am very happy in life, I know I would be happier with the love of my life in it.  That is why I am making 2013 the year to actualize my dream and the energy of what he will contribute to my life and me to his.

BE Authentic, BE YOU!

How to Tell if You’re Truly Healthy

By | Women's Health | 6 Comments

Drop the measuring tape. Step away from the scale. Forget about your pant size. Don’t think about tests or blood work (although they are important).

In my (non-doctor and non-expert) opinion the best way to tell how healthy you are is by answering this one question…

How do you feel?

Do you have energy throughout the day? Sleep well at night? Can you run up a flight of stairs? Do you get winded often? Do you get headaches all the time? Are you often sick or under the weather? Do you get frustrated and angry easily? Are you prone to anxiety attacks? Do you feel loved and supported? Do you feel nourished? What kind of foods do you fuel your body with? Are you often reaching for coffee or sweets to get you through the day? Is your skin clear and your hair healthy and strong?

This is a question that doesn’t really take into account your jean size or how many miles you can run because honestly you can be an avid runner and still unhealthy if all you eat is junk, and you can be a size 2 but out of shape if you’re never active. But answering this question can help you put yourtrue health into perspective.

True Health ::: Thriving in mind, body, spirit and soul, through your own unique, active, nourishing and balanced lifestyle.

Answering “How do you feel?” makes you consider your true and total health – the big picture… not just the little pieces here and there that don’t tell the story of your mind, body, spirit and soul. Yes, they are all very important to your true health.

See, I don’t believe in numbers. Yes, it’s great to be at the right weight for my height and build but that doesn’t mean I have enough energy to do the things I want, it doesn’t mean I’m active or live a well-balanced life. This is why I don’t count calories, don’t weigh myself often, ignore my jean size, etc, etc…

Rather, I listen to my body because my body (as well as yours) is absolutely brilliant.

Our bodies know what they need, know what makes them runs smoothly, know what lights them up, and know what doesn’t work for them. Think about how you felt after the last time you went out drinking or last years holiday buffet… Were you bloated? Tired? Feeling overall yucky? That is your body’s way of communicating that it does not like what you are doing and it’s trying to ask you not to do it again. Yet, so many of us would rather ignore our own bodies and “cure” our problems with pills and magic potions…

That’s where listening to our bodies comes in.

To answer the question above (How do you feel?) you actually have to take a moment and really listen to your body. This is how you can figure out what works for you, what you have to change and how you can be your healthiest.

Listening to your body to find your True Health is the key to finding energy, vitality, strength, stamina, total well-being. I also believe that each of us is totally unique – what works really well for me probably won’t work nearly as well for you.

Bottom Line :: The best way to find your ideal weight, feel infinitely better, have clear skin, and truly thrive is to tap into the brilliance of your own body by listening.

If your body could actually talk – what do you think it would say?
