Dear Friends,

By all accounts, 2020 has been a landmark year for bringing up feelings of uncertainty and anxiety. Forcing us to look deeply at our lives and situations. We have had to learn how to work in a new way, re-evaluate all our relationships, face our issues, and embrace a new way of living and communicating.

We must all be strong and vulnerable for the future. Being open to new opportunities, new experiences, new ideas, and new people. We must now choose to create a joy-filled life, a meaningful life, and a love-filled life for 2021.

I hope that my newsletters have inspired you to make small changes into your life.

Wishing you a holiday session filled with gratitude and joy!


Love and appreciation,


The awakening of the spirit is a process of releasing ourselves from the material, physical realm and floating upward and outward to find space and perspective.



How can you harness the power of spiritual inspiration in your own life? Spiritual inspiration can show up in many forms or be absorbed from a number of different sources. It varies for everyone. Yet I do believe that one thing is true for most of us, it’s vital for personal growth and transformation. Once you know what inspires you, what moves your spirit, you can harness its power in your own life to reach success or to find love. All success, whether creative, business, or love related starts with the connection to spirit. 
Spiritual inspiration does not have to show itself in a religious sense. Essentially it’s whatever connects you to your own spirit. It’s those things in which you find true meaning. It’s different for everybody. For some, it’s being around children. For others, it may be a creative outlet – painting, writing, yoga, ballet. It could be that friend who has never been the best player on the team who sinks a three-point shot to win the game and it happens right when you, the best player, are feeling the most discouraged or feeling cocky. That can be an inspiration. One may even find inspiration by reading a good book or listening to a spiritual teacher discuss, for example, the power of meditation and using affirmations. The simple act of listening by the way, to a discussion on spiritual growth, can be just the catalyst you need in your own life to create real change. For some, the spiritual connection may only come when they are in service to another. And that’s a great way to connect and find meaning. Finding time to be in nature can also reconnect you to the spirit. The idea is that it doesn’t have to be an outrageous decision or some kind of mecca to the Holy Land. All these wondrous yet small and doable forms of inspiration can be powerful vehicles for your own spiritual growth. The bonus: the more you practice, the more benefits you’ll see. It’s a never-ending wealth fountain of benefits and I’ll explain why in the next section. But eventually, you will soon begin to notice, the more you learn about the power you can harness in your own life by connecting to spirit, the universe as it is cyclical will return it three-fold. It’s the law of giving and receiving. It will kick into over-drive. Suddenly you then turn around to become a catalyst for another’s transformation.  More of the same will begin to show up as a sign to you that you are on the right path. For instance, when you are on the way to see a spiritual mentor, you may pass his or her book in a local boutique window. A friend suddenly will call to tell you that she just read a book by the very mentor you saw the day before. Spiritual laws work in a giant circle of giving and receiving. That circle includes giving to yourself, believe it or not. It’s a hard concept for many. But when you do, you will begin to truly understand that the more you nurture your own spirit, the more present you will be for those around you. Better still, the more you focus on your spirituality the more power and benefits you’ll reap.

Incredibly rich, vegan, easy brownies made with just 4 ingredients and 1 bowl! Naturally sweetened, grain- and gluten-free, and so satisfying!

Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings 12(Brownies)

Cuisine Gluten-Free, Vegan
Freezer Friendly 1 month

  • 2 cups tightly packed dates, pitted (measured after pitting // make sure they're fresh! If dry, soak in warm water 10 minutes, drain, then add to the processor)
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup salted peanut butter* (if unsalted, add a healthy pinch of salt to the batter)
  • 2 Tbsp melted coconut oil 
  • 1/3 cup cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup dairy-free dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped raw walnuts 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C) and line a standard loaf pan (or similar size pan) with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Add dates to a food processor and blend until small bits or a ball forms. If your food processor has a difficult time processing the dates, ensure there are no pits in the dates and that your dates are fresh and sticky. If too dry they can have a difficult time blending. (It may also be an issue of food processor strength if it has a hard time blending.)
  3. Once blended, separate the dates into chunks using a spoon. Then add hot water and blend until a sticky date paste forms. Scrape down sides as needed.
  4. Add peanut butter, coconut oil, and cacao powder and pulse until a sticky batter forms. It should be tacky and thick (scrape down sides as needed). Lastly, add chocolate chips and walnuts (optional) and pulse to incorporate.
  5. Transfer batter to the lined loaf pan and spread into an even layer. For a smooth top, lay some parchment paper on top and use a flat-bottomed object (like a drinking glass) to press into an even layer.
  6. Bake on the center rack for 15 minutes - the edges should be slightly dry. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then carefully lift out of the pan using the edges of the parchment paper and let cool on a plate or cooling rack for at least 20 minutes before slicing. The longer they cool, the firmer they will become.
  7. Enjoy warm or cooled. Store leftovers covered at room temperature up to 3 days, in the refrigerator up to 5-6 days, or in the freezer up to 1 month (let thaw before enjoying).

Today, I am creating my life now to be far more beautiful, loving, and glorious than I could ever imagine.

Today, I am happy with my life and all things.

Today, I live in this moment, now.









Here are a few guidelines that will help you create Happiness in your life: 

Write down a detailed plan of what you want to achieve.

Back your initiative with belief in yourself and in your ability to complete your plan successfully.

Work on your goal (s) every single day.

Associate yourself with like-minded people, who encourage you.

Throw out ALL negative thoughts and say goodbye to fears. Forgiveness is about healing old wounds. Once you do that, you don't have to become a victim of those past experiences.

Happiness is not a miracle. It does not depend on how much you have to enjoy, but how much you enjoy what you have. Houses and cars do not make people happy.

Happiness is believing in your TRUE SELF. Don’t sit around and wait for a miracle to happen.



Our ancestors had to contend with the dangerous world; the body's stress response developed as a survival mechanism. But the hazards they faced didn’t last long and after a stressful episode was over, the body went back to normal.

Today, most of the stress we encounter is low level and chronic. The body never gets a chance to reset, which over time can lead to cardiovascular woes and other health problems.

There are dietary factors that can have a calming effect and one of the most effective is magnesium. Found in beans, seeds, and leafy greens, magnesium is best known for partnering with calcium to build strong bones.

In addition, this mineral supports the proper operation of the nervous system and may help relieve depression.



Feelings create situations; they produce a magnetic field of energy that attracts to you circumstances that produce more of the same feelings.
