For many, the idea that they have a direct influence on their destiny can feel overwhelming; almost debilitating.
It’s not as complicated as you might think, though.
You see, changing your destiny doesn’t require taking massive actions all of the time.
All that your destiny asks of you is that you change one thing when you begin to form a relationship with it.
If you have ever felt that you have lost your mojo, your inspiration and direction, fear not.
Help is on the way.
When you are caught up your awareness that you aren’t feeling what you want to feel and don’t have what you want to have, it can feel as if you are falling down a black hole.
You somehow believe that you don’t know which steps to take to move forward.
You desperately want answers and to find someone who can tell you what to do and how to do it.
You want certainty and safety. Continue reading

You are in a relationship or are dating someone and feel confident (or mostly confident) that all is well.
Sure, you encounter challenges, but every relationship has them, right?
One day, you find something out that you can’t ‘un-know’.
You feel like you have just been sucker punched in the gut and your body shakes in confirmation. You’ve been betrayed.
Your world has shifted in an unexpected direction.
What do you do now?
She was pregnant with her fifth child, due in two days.
Her younger brother passed away two years ago.
Her father passed away last year.
Her mother passed away two months ago.
She was the only surviving member of her nuclear family.
She came to see me for a reading because she wanted to know more about her life and what to do next.
You are NEVER out of options. You are just out of Possibility.

Time and time again I meet people who give up.
They just stop.
It’s not because they can’t do what they want to do or can’t be who they want to be.
Nor is it because they have completely let go of their dream (either big or small).
For some reason, they’re blocked.
Something has gotten to them. Continue reading
“Everything is Everything.”

“I want to be remembered for something, anything. I just want to be remembered.”, she said.
“What do you want to be remembered for?”, I asked.
“At least that I was here. That I existed. That I mattered. That I made a difference. That I was worth something.” she said with melancholy.
“What would that look like?”, I asked. Continue reading
It’s never what you expect.
In many cases, you don’t want it to happen.
After all, you have no idea what change will look like and what you are supposed to do with it once it happens.
Your sense of safety and certainty is threatened.
You have no control over it and that is terrifying to most people.
It’s elusive but it’s exactly what you need. Continue reading
She needed her car.
She had to get around town.
Her tire was blown and the rim was shot.
She has no family. A few friends. No partner. No kids. And, very little money.
She really needed her car.
Somehow, she found a way; she finally maxed out her credit card.
She fixed it all. She had her car back.
But she was still broke financially and in emotional pain. Continue reading
They are real.
You can feel them but you can’t always see them.
They lurk around the corner. Masterfully weave themselves into your life. They are bold, ruthless, and take prisoners.
They will haunt you until they are stopped.
Are you ready to stop them?

I’ve never met a strong person with an easy past.
It’s just that simple.
If you consider yourself a resilient person, then you know exactly what I am talking about.
You know what you have been through and know who you are because of it all.
Inner strength doesn’t come from external forces. It doesn’t come from modeling others’ behavior or using words that others use to sound strong.
It doesn’t come from empty mantra’s or stickers on your fridge that tell you “It’s all good.”
Inner strength is earned and is the direct result of what you choose to focus on, what meaning it has, and what you are going to do about it. Continue reading
