Sugar is NOT the Enemy

Sugar is NOT the Enemy!

(Unless of course you have diabetes or food sensitivities to sugar)

 I know you have probably heard over and over again that you should avoid sweets at all costs. Or you may have been convinced that it’s better to substitute sugar with (poisonous cancer causing) sugar substitutes.


But I am here to tell you that sugar (natural, raw, organic sugar, and natural sweeteners like maple syrup) is not the enemy! Your body has amazing intelligence and it knows what to do with sugar (in moderation!). On the other hand, It does not know what to do with saccharine and all those other man made toxic science projects.

The Book That Kept Falling Off My Bookshelf

The Book That Kept Falling Off My Bookshelf



  If you’re new to my blog you may not know this fact about me – I am a huge book lover! I am a total self-help junkie (in the best way possible), and I am always striving to better my life, and improve my emotional, spiritual, and physical health. So, with that being said, you can imagine how many books I have in my house! 

  Last week, in front of one of my bookshelves, I noticed an old book on the floor in front of the bookcase.  I put it back in it’s place on the shelf, and hours later I found it on the floor again, I picked it up and returned it once more. The next day, the same thing. The day after that my partner noticed it too and mentioned that he keeps putting it back on the shelf only to find it on the floor again.

  Seeing this as a MAJOR sign from the Universe, I decided not to put it back on the shelf,   but to read it instead.

I am about half way through the book and am paying special attention to any messages that I may need to hear.  The book is Richard Bach’s One.

The Zen of Weight Release

The Zen of Weight Release


EssjayNZ / Foter / CC BY-NC-SA

The Zen of Weight Release has nothing to do with losing weight. When you think of yourself “losing weight”, do you have visions of yourself at the gym in baggy sweat pants, sweating in all the wrong places, and gasping for your next breath of air, while the twenty something sorority girl running full speed on the treadmill besides you is barely breaking a sweat? 


Do you also associate losing weight with deprivation, diets, long forgotten willpower, and anal retentive portion control?


Well that’s how many people envision losing weight. When you lose the word “lose”, and replace it with “release” you are one step closer to letting go of extra weight. 


The Zen of Weight Release is not a physical discipline that can be taught by the weight trainer at the gym, or by your Weight Watchers Instructor. The Zen of Weight Release is actually the practice of studying the mind and seeing into the nature of who you are.   read more

Is Laser Coaching the New Magic Wand?

Is Laser Coaching the New Magic Wand?


Magical livingI have always been a dreamer.  I love stories of magic and miracles.  As a child I fantasized a lot! I always wished I could just wave a Magic Wand and have my dreams become reality.

Well, I have recently stumbled on a few things that come pretty darn close to a Magic Wand, and one of them is Laser Coaching.  If you don’t know what laser coaching is, it’s quick, hot spot coaching numerous times throughout the week. The beauty of laser coaching is that you are talking with your coach more frequently so this results in:

  • More accountability
  • Increased motivation to stay on track
  • More energetic clearings
  • Less chance of overeating
  • Deleting emotional eating for good
  • Sweet cravings going bye-bye
  • Less stress
  • Increased confidence and self esteem
  • Increased peace and calm
  • Increased vibrational alignment
  • and long lasting WEIGHT RELEASE!

The Top 15 Benefits of Life Coaching

The Top 15 Benefits of Life Coaching

Before I list the top 15 benefits of life coaching, I will talk a bit about coaching in general. Life Coaching, weight release coaching, soulmate attraction coaching, career coaching, etc, all have one thing in common, and that is to trigger a transformation in the person who is receiving the coaching.  There are a couple roads you could take to achieve your desired transformation, the first being the road of going at it alone. This road can get you there but most of the time it will take a great deal of time and a lot of trial and error to find your way. The other road is to enlist the help and support of a teacher, coach, or mentor. Taking this road can actually enhance your journey. Not only can you expect to achieve your desired outcome quicker this way then going at it alone, but you can also expect an increase in your own personal awareness level and increase in your growth. read more

The Night Iron Man Visited My Bedroom

The Night Iron Man Visited My Bedroom

I don’t take my celebrity crushes lightly, nor do I go simply by looks.  Character is a huge factor in whom I honor with Celebrity Crush status.  My heart is fluttering right now as I think about my celebrity crush – Robert Downey Jr. Not only is he Smokin’ Hot, but he has inner courage, strength, and integrity worthy of his Iron Man Costume.  


The other night, RDJ visited me in my bedroom, complete with his Iron Man persona.  He was larger than life and as passionate as my best dream lovers. RDJ is 49 years old but in my dream he had the energy of a 20 year old, I am 50, am also quite young at heart; however that night I was an 80 year old woman. My age didn’t matter to Iron Man.  He walked towards me with the determination of a lion stalking it’s prey, his eyes locked on to mine as he threw off his mask and took me in his arms.  I can still feel this embrace. Holy Hell!  RDJ was as handsome and strong as always, it was I, that somehow had 30 additional years added to my face, and my body.  read more

Law of Attraction and Weight Release: What if….?

Law of Attraction and Weight Release: What if Everything Worked Out For Me?


lawofattraction whatifToday’s Law of Attraction Card is What if Everything Worked Out For Me?


Playing the What If game can be very effective when using Law of Attraction for weight release. The What if game shifts your negative feelings like despair, hopelessness, and discouragement,  instantly to hopefulness, optimism, and positive expectation.

When you play the What If? game, look for things that make you feel better. There is never a situation where there isn’t a solution, but due to habit and subconscious belief programs, most people continue to choose the “lack” perspective until they are at the end of the rope where they feel there are no solutions.


Instead of focusing on the problem, like the weight gain, how hard it is for you to lose weight, or how your clothes don’t fit, decide to set your intention on seeing the evidence of your well being!  read more

Law of Attraction and Weight Release: You Are Here to Seek Joy

Law of Attraction and Weight Release: You Are Here to Seek Joy


lawofattraction seekjoyToday’s Abraham Law of Attraction Card is Welcome to Planet Earth; You are Here to Seek Joy…

This message, for me, reminds me to be easy and not sweat it!  I for one, can be quite nervous at times. When I was approaching menopause 35 lbs overweight, I began to panic. Thoughts of the latest craziest diet fad entered my mind, after that my mind drifted towards the old faithfuls that have proven to work for me in the past (in the short run), all because I was facing the high anxiety of getting older. I kept hearing in my head this loud voice shouting, “what if I can’t lose weight at my age?”  Talk about panic mode!


Well instead of falling victim to my panic and my fears, I decided to seek calmness, and joy.  I made a point to be appreciative of my life and that included my journey of having a weight problem. read more

Law of Attraction & Weight Release: Your Story

Law of Attraction & Weight Release: Your Life Story


lawofattraction-storyToday’s Law Attraction card is “I Will Tell My Story as I Want it to BE…

When it comes to optimizing the Law of Attraction for weight release, you will want to revise and improve the content of the story you tell every day of your life.

As challenging as it may be, it’s important to rid yourself of those words, thoughts, and actions that support the message that you’re overweight.  I totally understand how it doesn’t feel like truth to say “I am so thin and fit” when you’re 60 pounds overweight. But the idea behind telling an improved version of the “I’m 60 lbs overweight and feel really fat!” story is that your energy vibration will begin to shift to the new and improved story.

Rather than say something that totally throws you off the rails, like saying how thin you are, try softening the old “…I’m fat…” story by inching your way closer to the desired story of “I’m thin and fit!”  Here’s one way you can improve your story today, start thinking and saying:

“I’m on my way to improved health! With each new day I am feeling better, eating healthier, and exercising more. I am excited to watch the positive changes occur in my body and my energy level.”

Law of Attraction and Weight Release: Directing Your Thoughts

Law of Attraction and Weight Release: Directing Your Thoughts


lawofattraction-directingthoughtsToday’s Law of Attraction Card is:  I am developing the skills to direct my thoughts.  When it comes to weight release and Law of Attraction this is the foundation.  It sounds easy right? Well for many people it takes training and practice to be the Masters of Thoughts, especially when it comes to our bodies or weight.  It can feel like an uphill battle to feel good about yourself when you recently put on 40 pounds, I know, I’ve been there. But it’s important to work towards this goal.


The most valuable skill you could ever develop is that of directing your thoughts towards what you want and to have an increased awareness level to realize when you’re slipping down the slippery slope of negative thinking. Sometimes negative thinking creeps up on you so fast that you don’t even realize you’re falling victim to the negative. I recently had a strategy session with a coach regarding money and business success, and I couldn’t believe the stories I have been telling myself, not to mention the level of my vibration regarding money and success. Holy Cow, and I am a certified Law of Attraction Coach!  But for so many of us coaches, we spot it in others, but don’t always see it in ourselves.
