Authenticity and Being You

A few years ago a close friend of mine gave me a plaque for my birthday and today I am inspired to share it with you.

What it really means to me is to be who you are at your core. Stay true to yourself with all the chaos going on around you … whether in your personal life or in the world at large.

Be authentic.

Speak from your heart.

Be kind and loving.

Remember who you came here to be.

This will set you free from competition, fear and scarcity and will help you experience joys you have yet to imagine.

You deserve everything you dream about.

Be in gratitude for everything you experience in life now.

Breathe deeply several times a day and let it become a frequent behavior!

Open yourself to living your life in divine inspiration and creativity!

Take inspired actions with passion and joy.

Experience your most fulfilling life!

Love and Inspiration!


Writing How Do YOU Do It?

Over weekend I took several hours to get some writing completed that I have been wanting to do for several weeks.

I started writing a few times and was never able to make the kind of progress I was desiring.

What was different for me this time?

One, maybe two things…

First, I am a different person than I was several weeks ago. Actually I am a different person than I was when I woke up this morning!

So there is a different energy inside of me that supports me in completing all the tasks at hand.

What was really different for me is that my laptop decided to go to sleep and over the weekend I did not feel like sitting in my home office at my computer.

I get stir crazy sometimes! So I grabbed a stack of paper and drove to Whole Foods (did I mention I love it there?!).

I had all my notes from the 4 part audio series I created recently and I took out a piece of paper and I started writing. To my amazement the words just flowed out of me and before I knew it I had completed five separate marketing letters.

Sure … maybe it was because I was finally ready to knock these letters out but I think it is something much simpler than that!

I was holding a pen in my hand and writing the old fashioned way! Pen to paper writing! What a concept!

If I ever had any blocks with inspiration it is when I am writing marketing copy! So my laptop deciding to take a siesta and leading me to be inspired to simply write by hand was the best thing that could’ve happened.

In a way you can call it “downstream” writing for those of you who follow Abraham! For me it was the path of least resistance!

When I thought about it later I realized that holding the pen in my hand brought out my creativity. It allowed me to be inspired while I write because when I was a child I wrote with my bare hands too!

So I moved past a major stuck point to complete this writing because I listened to inspiration and I took immediate action!

Of course now I am getting ready to type my notes and then there will be some editing but I am much further than I would have been.

Maybe next time I will be inspired how to write just as quickly while I type!

And it sure would be great to have a working laptop again!

Love and Inspiration!


Divine Inspiration, this blog and me

I began this blog in December of 2008 about the time I was getting ready to create my Spiritual Grid Manifestation DVD and as much as I wanted to write more often I did not. As I reflect I realize that there was so much that I was not clear about at that time.

That is one of the gifts of time. It gives us great perspective.

As I have been shifting gears in how I help people shift into who they came here to be I am making a commitment to write more often here on this blog and in other ways.

I’ll be speaking about what I know best … Divine Inspiration.

Some of you may relate more if I tell you that connecting to your Divine Inspiration is about connecting to your Creativity!!

Creativity is what we are here for. We are each creating our lives in each and every moment whether we are aware of it or not!

Sometimes I will be sharing a story about something or someone that inspired me and how and why.

Other times I may tell you about an experience that I had during that day that is related to inspiration.

What I really look forward to sharing with you is how I live in my inspiration on a moment to moment basis just about everyday.

It could be about my spontaneous decision to take a walk, buy a cup of coffee at Whole Foods or scale a building … LOL …last night a friend of mine told me about the famous French Spiderman whom he met in person once!

You never know who you are going to see or what you are going to learn and how this will change your life or someone else’s life for the better.

I am ready to really stand for myself in what I came here to do. It has been a very long journey and I know there is so much more for me to learn and I look forward to learning with you.

If you like what I write and if it inspires you in anyway I would like to know. This further inspires me.

It has taken me a long time to align myself and my work with my true core gift … this ability to connect with this deeper part of me and live in inspiration.

You can live in inspiration too. As I look back to my childhood … that is decades! … I can see that I was always connected to this deeper part of myself and it is something that I have learned to develop over my lifetime.

This occurred with the practice of being in business and creating a multitude of tangible products and services. Sometimes they worked out really well and other times I fell flat on my you know what!

I learned from each of these experiences all in the expectation that I would serve others in the area of personal growth.

So I continue that now by helping to open you to your divine inspiration so that you may continue to create your life consciously whether you want to expand your business, change your career or job or want to be happier.

Maybe you just want to have more fun and more time to play! I know I do!

Let’s do it together!

Divine Inspiration is my passion. How can I serve you?

To Your Divine Inspiration!


Authenticity: A Simple Lesson

I learned a big lesson in authenticity this past two weeks. For the past 26 years as a business owner I have always strived to recognize and take action from my uniqueness.

In 1991 I pioneered ergonomics and in 1996 I launched one of the first ergonomic product websites which I sold in 2008. I sold it because after 17 years in that business it was time to be authentic in a new area.

(Oh in case you are wondering, the ergonmics website I created is Tell them I said hello!)

I realize that a part of me always thought that to be fully authentic I had to do everything on my own. Of course that is not the case. Authenticity develops on the inside and only recently did I begin understand that on a more meaningful level.

Here’s how it happened.

Nine months ago I met someone on Twitter whom I had noticed before but chose not to follow her because something felt “off.”

Call it intuition.

Weeks later she followed me and her first communication to me was that I was wrong about something. Being my forgiving and sometimes naive self I followed her and let it go knowing we all have our own perceptions.

On one of our early phone calls an intriguing idea presented itself to us. She wanted to get started right away and I was still in the middle of producing my Spiritual Grid Manifestation DVD and told her I was definitely interested and would let her know when I was ready.

Deep down my intuition was speaking to me and I knew that I could not work with her while creating my DVD. Months later I wrote her and suggested we create that program. It just felt like the right time.

We began a series of phone calls and became much clearer about the series. Being the consummate businesswoman I am I suggested a written agreement and even though she ignored me I allowed myself to get deeper into the project and kept “giving in.”

After a short time I realized she saw me as her “admin” when she frequently ordered me to take actions at a moments notice! Again I suggested we create an agreement about responsibilities and again it was ignored. Yet I kept going because the project was still intriguing to me.

I kept doing everything she asked and then got creative and practiced some videos in the park to promote the series. That same weekend she began accusing me of not working and my response was to stop working!

Funny how the mind works. She proceeded to send me a series of accusatory emails and then I began experiencing excrutiating pain and landed in the emergency room and then I could not work! Her emails kept coming even though she knew I was not well for several days. She even told me she did not care I was sick!

That is when I got it! It was the final straw and I told her I did not want to play with her anymore. It just hurt too much.

That very same day I had a series of phone calls with other people and the theme that kept appearing was authenticity!

My first clues of a potential conflict came many months before.

Once I was able to recognize the truth I wrote a letter to the list we created and told everyone that in order to be authentic I had to exit.

Fortunately I also now understand the meaning of authenticity on a deeper level. My authenticity has nothing to do with doing everything on my own as I once thought.

My authenticity has everything to do with staying true to my core beliefs and principles and only allowing people in my life that are serving me. It also has to feel good! When I listen to and take action on my intuition I am being authentic. The experience itself served me well and once I was able to rise above it and receive the learning I was complete.

Authenticity is certainly the theme of the moment for me. What about you?

What areas of your life are causing you to ponder? What have you been putting up with?

Let me know how this has served you.

Well it is time to take action on my new inspirations! But first I think it is time for some dark chocolate. Now that’s being authentic!

iLoveU !


Creativity The Unseen Force That Changes Your Life

What is Creativity?

You cannot see it, feel it or touch it.

Creativity is energy and it comes to you in the form of an idea that may the solution to a problem in your life. The idea that flows into your mind has a universal life force built into it.

Creativity is the spark of inspiration that comes to you seemingly out of the blue. It is delivered to you in a flash. It seems like it is coming to you from somewhere outside but in reality it is coming from somewhere deep inside of you.

In this instant you are connected to or tapped in to a force of energy called the universe. You are now in the flow. Take note that this spark of insight came specifically to you for a reason. There might be others that have received the same idea in the same moment but did not take action. Or they may develop the idea independently of you on the other side of the world. It has happened and will happen again

What you do with this idea can be a determining factor in how fast your current situation can improve.

When an idea is delivered to you in a moment of spontaneity it carries with it all the forces of the universe to help produce the idea into reality. So it is of the utmost importance to take immediate action because this energy fuels the desire.

All you must do is take the first step. Once you do the next step will reveal itself to you and as you continue to take these small actions it will become easier and you will begin to trust the process much more.

Over 20 years ago I began to be in touch with this flow of energy and creative insight almost daily. I did not grow up in a house where there was time for creativity so I did not know how to channel these ideas.

There were so many ideas coming to me that I remember looking up and asking it to stop! It did to my delight. Then many years later I allowed it to come back and again it did to my delight!

You were born with this natural ability to be creative.

How are you tapping in and allowing your personal brand of creativity to change your life for the better?

Let me know!

iLoVeU !
