A Surge of Feminine Energy

I don't know if you've noticed, but women are shifting into higher gears and focusing more on life goals and dreams. This may be a worldwide trend amongst humans in general; however, I feel a distinct feminine energy surrounding this front of powerful changes.

Holding On and Letting Go

As women we inevitably face choices. Ones that are hard and ones that require little thought, if any at all - life's opportunities. We either have the opportunity to change something or allow it to remain the same.

This Too Shall Pass

The stark reality of life can sometimes bring us to the point of confusion, desperation, and even self-destruction. Not to dwell on the negative, on the contrary, I want to share about the place that is on the other side of difficulties and tragedy - the place where you can look back and see that you were strong and brave.

Am I Selfish?

Introspective Sunday: Am I selfish? There is one problem with this question...that is if you actually are selfish. Most people who are self-centered won't even entertain the thought that they have "it's all about me" syndrome, at least until they have a revelation.

Liberation

Liberation: Posing Nude, Shaving Your Head, and Skinny Dipping What makes a woman feel free? Is it dancing to her favorite tunes while no one is looking or driving down a country road at 75 MPH (that one might be more of a man thing)? Regardless of "what" makes us feel free, we need to at least try to break out of stale routines and inhibitions occasionally.

Breaking Cycles

I have found that when stuck in a rut (a muddy ditch with monsters that grab you and don't let go) if I do anything different than I have the past fifty times, I get a new result.

What is Introspection?

Considering all that you can learn about yourself, the act of "looking within" should become second nature. I find it exciting, difficult, and even scary (sounds like a good thriller) to approach the part of your mind and emotions that often get the brunt of your choices.

Facing Fears

Have you ever been in a place that just felt creepy; did you get goose bumps and swear that someone was watching you? Sometimes those feelings might have a valid source or they might just be your imagination. It's in this same way that we can concoct the most terrifying scenes in our minds concerning other life situations - again, our imagination. Fear actually brings in a serious influx of creativity - the scary kind.

Making Decisions

Today's topic is one with which many have trouble - on a daily basis. It is making decisions and acting upon them. I, for one, am one of those who don't find making some decisions to be pleasant; therefore, I avoid them. When I say this, I don't mean your every day ones like which breakfast cereal to buy or what shoes should I wear today; no, the ones I speak of are much more life-changing and some can even be hazardous or painful.

Discouragement and Frustration: You Can Overcome Them

Women, especially, experience these troubling emotions when they see the ones they love hurting or in trouble. Our natural instinct to nurture and protect can be overwhelming; we are left wondering why no one sees our undying effort to make things better - can't they just stop screwing up already? And, when we can't change things quickly enough, it puts us into a heightened sense of frustration; I believe this is called motherhood or PMS.

Anticipation: A Healthy Emotion

Have you ever wondered why you feel more alive when you are looking forward to something. It could be the family vacation, a long awaited reunion with an old friend, or something as simple as getting a facial. I've often found that a heightened level of anticipation brings a happiness that isn't found through any other source.

Spiritual Enlightenment: A Woman’s Emotional “Neti Pot”

It dawned on me today that when we are not spiritually and emotionally sound, we can't be our best - the women that we are meant to be. You know, like when your allergies are acting up; you don't put your best foot forward because you're too busy blowing your nose and trying to breathe - nothing feels right. This is the equivalent of being emotionally stuck in second gear; you can't seem to get where you want to go at the speed you need to get there.

The Wounded Child Within

How many of us have gazed into the mirror only to see ourselves at an earlier age, an age in which circumstances have left us in a drama of life that we were forever trying to forget; one that we thought we had buried, and yet time has brought forth the resurfacing of misdirected and scattered emotions – often those that have wounded and left us in a state of despair? Why is it we would choose to carry the burden of unpleasant memories rather than allowing them to be released with love and forgiveness, or at least understanding?

The Best Natural Products for Body, Mind, and Spirit

Say Goodbye to Muscle Tension While undergoing chiropractic treatment years ago, I was introduced to, Formula 303, one of the best natural products I have ever used. With a boat load of kids at home and the usual "mom chores" waiting for my attention, I found myself often stressed and aching. It wasn't surprising when my shoulders, neck, and lower back were all in knots most of the time. Because I'm sensitive to most medications like muscle relaxers and pain killers, I was thrilled that there was a safe product to relieve my pain and tension.

Take a Close Look

There comes a time in every woman's life when she has to take a close look at herself. Not at her circumstance, not at what she did, not how unfair life is, or at who made you do it. She has to just look at herself in all her glory and imperfection. Have you ever admired a woman who has been through changes in her life? Or have you made up in your mind that she is just messed up. Before you make this mistake, take a closer look.
