Where Do We GO From Here?

“Overwhelmingly America is still struggling with irresolution and contradictions. It has been sincere and even ardent in welcoming some change. But too quickly apathy and disinterest rise to the surface when the next logical steps are to be taken.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The Universe has gifted us with an opportunity to review ourselves and make hard decisions. Will we do just enough to appease our comforts, or will we… Read More

The Answer Is You

“Fight for the things that you care about. But do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”- Ruth Bader Ginsburg We are in desperate need of societal healing and unity. We all need to do our part to see substantial, durable change. It can all seem so overwhelming, and far too often, we are looking for a way to make a change in the troubling behavior that we… Read More

Love Above All

Love is patient, love is kind.It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking,It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.Love never fails. Once you are aware of your connection with others, you realize being petty, intentionally wounding, or belittling… Read More

The Art of Healing

“We each have a story of wounds.Our wounds need to be shared transparently.Wounds can heal with forgiveness.Walking victoriously with our scars can bring encouragement and hope to others.”Dell Maestra, The Last Grain Of Salt When I was 16, I got the phone call; it was from a boy I liked. He called to say he liked me too—this post isn’t about him, but what happened after that call. I was so excited… Read More

Equality: Reclaiming Your Power

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”- Declaration of Independence 1776 My kids have this book called “Have you filled a bucket today?” It talks about how everyone has an invisible bucket that they carry around. It holds all of the good thoughts and feelings about themselves. It talks about how some… Read More

The Call

“Come what may, I know the way, I am Moana” – Moana This is my favorite part of the movie where Moana looks back over her hero’s journey and all she learned. She stands in her truth, and boldly declares all she always knew in her heart. I’ve had this powerful moment, and just like with Moana, it was the turning point for me to trust my calling. We all have a… Read More

The Missing Piece

“The best gift you are ever going to give someone- the permission to feel safe in their own skin. To feel worthy. To feel like they are enough.” -Hannah Brencher Our lens for Understanding and Implementing Diversity and Inclusion in this world is new. In the US, it has been only 50 + years since the Civil rights Movement. Every human civilization has promoted segregation of some sort based upon a dimension… Read More

The Power To Heal

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” Rumi I had a beautiful inner child healing session with myself a few days ago, and it always amazes me how we can heal a part of ourselves and get free, and later still, find you have healing to do in that area. If you are anything like me, you feel like a failure, you become hard on yourself like, “why can’t… Read More

WE ARE ONE

Artwork by Autumn Skye https://autumnskyeart.com ““A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our… Read More

The Sacred Place

“The heart is the hub of all sacred places. Go there and roam.” ~ Bhagawan Nityananda I remember my grandmother’s house very vividly. If I close my eyes, I can walk through as I remember it. I can remember the smells, sounds, and, most importantly, the love. I think that is why I used this home as one of the locations in my book, Life of My Dreams. It was a place… Read More

DEI Professionals: Are We Practicing What We Teach?

I recently joined Linkedin. A friend suggested that it would be an excellent way to network. I created a profile, started following anything diversity, DEI related, and I quickly found myself overwhelmed by some of the things my DEI peers were posting. What I am about to suggest is not a judgment; it is an observation and a challenge that I think we all benefit from asking ourselves. Could we be handling… Read More

Who’s Judging Who

“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.” – Wayne Dyer We have all experienced the burden of the opinion of others. At some point or another, we all have struggled with feeling like we are not enough, we don’t measure up, or that people don’t like or accept us just for being who we are. Or worse, that our life choices, our actions, or our expressions of… Read More

Dear Reluctant Creative,

“If you wish to be a writer, write” – Epictetus I am a published author. I wrote my first book ten years ago, and my second book is scheduled to be released in May 2020. I have always enjoyed writing, but due to a major disappointment with my first book, I gave up. I didn’t write for almost ten years. It wasn’t until I began to heal myself that I was able… Read More

Fix Your Focus

“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” – Aristotle Onassis Did you ever notice how effortlessly we can focus on all of the things that are going wrong? My mom tells this story about when she took me to the circus as a kid. She bought me balloons and one of those cool lights to wave in the air during the show. We watched in… Read More

Are You Living on Purpose?

“Without knowing what I am and why I am here, life is impossible.”- Leo Tolstoy Knowing your purpose. How many times have you heard people say, “What is the meaning of life?” or “Why are we here?” Have you ever said it yourself? If you have not yet found yourself questioning your existence, you will. Even if you feel like you understand your purpose for being in this world, you will likely… Read More

What is a Social Unity Advocate/IDEAS Consultant?

“So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth.” – Baha’U’Llah In the past, I have labeled myself as an advocate for diversity and inclusion. I have changed my title just a bit to reflect my particular focus. In my opinion, diversity and inclusion have become a buzzwords. They carry negative connotations for some, and for others, it is a rallying cry. It means different things to different… Read More

Purpose In The Process

“The goal is to grow so strong on the inside that nothing on the outside can affect your inner wellness without your conscious permission.” -Unknown We all want to feel in control of our lives. The problem is life is not exactly predictable. We can try to prepare for all that life sends our way. Still, we will inevitably encounter a situation where we have no control. The only thing you can… Read More

Transform Your Triggers Into Trainers

“You and I possess within ourselves at every moment of our lives, under all circumstances, the power to transform the quality of our lives.”  – Werner Erhard When you are triggered by a situation or someone else behavior, you should be thankful. Thankful, yes, thankful! A trigger is a sign that you have a trauma that you need to heal, and healing is required to live our best life. Most often, our first… Read More

A Greater You Seeks To Breakthrough

“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.” – Chuang Tzu The butterfly metaphor has been a reoccurring theme, pretty much my entire life. The butterfly always felt like it was promised state of being for me. Throughout my spiritual journey, the phases of the butterfly kept coming up. Which made me begin to wonder, does the caterpillar know what it will ultimately be? Does it recognize its current state as… Read More

Freedom From The Cage of Comparison & Competition

“A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms ” – Unknown I was recently asked the question “who are your competitors” I didn’t think twice, I quickly answered. “I only compete with my past and future self.” It has been a bit of a mantra the past year, and I was thankful that I had fully integrated this life lesson.   Competition is deeply embedded in… Read More
