Dear Friends,

As fall arrives, September is a month when we observe new growth. What does it mean to truly be awake and aware? Most of us are constantly examining the details of our lives, and often ruminating over the points that jab us with insecurity and pain. Our modern, technological fast-paced culture has us chasing after external items that we are told will bring us happiness. 

How often do we just allow ourselves to be fully present to the beauty of each moment, and not constantly be looking at the past or worried about the future. Let’s take a moment each day to stop and pay attention to your inner voice. What thoughts or seedlings are you nurturing within? Daily we must all align with the power of love and bring that into our lives. Be aware and awake!

This month open up within and accept greater love, peace, and contentment!

Love and appreciation,

It is up to us to experience joy in our lives. By somehow transforming what appears to be a block into a blessing, we can then maneuver the gearshift from stuck into the next gear of greatness, smoothly and easily.



With the power of your subconscious, you can bring into your life more spiritual energy, wealth, health, happiness, and more joy by learning to contact and release the hidden power of your subconscious mind. You need not acquire this power you already possess. But, you want to learn how to use it and understand it so that you can apply it in all areas of your life. 

Began to now recognize these potentialities of your deeper mind, and they will take form in the world. You can receive new thoughts and ideas enabling you to bring forth new opportunities and new discoveries. Through the wisdom of your subconscious mind, you can attract the ideal partner, career, or the right business associate. It can find you the right home, provide you with all the money you need, and the financial freedom to be and do. Within your subconscious mind, you will find a solution for every problem, and the cause for every effect.

Can’t seem to sleep through the night? Feeling exhausted when you wake?  Have brain fog the next day? Sleeplessness, sleep disruptions, and other potentially chronic sleep problems that interrupt your dreamland success are pretty common, but they don’t have to be.

People often underestimate the impact of diet on quality rest, but if you just can't seem to get enough sleep, what you are eating and drinking may be the culprit. You may want to reconsider when or how often you consume the following 4 foods, which can wreak havoc on the quality and quantity of your sleep. 

This one may come as a surprise! Grapefruit is full of vitamins and nutrients, such as Vitamin C and potassium, but it is also very acidic, and eating it before bedtime can cause acid reflux and heartburn. Don’t stop eating grapefruit, but you may want to opt for eating it only in the morning, and never after dinner.

Though super crunchy and satisfying, celery and other foods with extremely high water content like cucumbers, watermelon, and radishes, are natural diuretics that may cause you to wake in the middle of the night with a full bladder, disrupting your quality night’s sleep.

Tomatoes & Other Nightshades
Some people who have sensitivities to nightshade vegetables, such as tomatoes, report inflammation flare-ups after eating them. This is due to the solanine in the nightshade foods, a major inflammation stimulant in most digestive systems. Tomatoes are also rich in tyramine, an amino acid that triggers the brain to release norepinephrine, a stimulant that boosts brain activity and can keep you up. Other tyramine-rich foods include eggplant, soy sauce, red wine, and aged cheeses.

Dark Chocolate, Coffee, and Teas
We all know caffeine stimulates the mind and body to be more alert, but did you know dark chocolate has 25-38% as much caffeine as one cup of coffee? In fact, all chocolates, even milk chocolate, contain caffeine. A basic rule of thumb is, the darker the chocolate, the more caffeine it contains. Speaking of caffeine, contrary to popular belief, decaffeinated coffee also contains enough caffeine which can disrupt sleep, particularly for those who are caffeine sensitive. And different teas can do the same. Make sure you read labels on all teas before you consume them.



Today, I turn and find all the comfort and wisdom within.

Today, I am a new me.

Today, Success comes to me in unexpected ways.








Simple, 7-ingredient dark chocolate quinoa breakfast bowl naturally sweetened with maple syrup and infused with rich cocoa powder! A healthy, hearty plant-based breakfast or snack.

Prep Time: 05 Minutes
Cook Time: 25 Minutes
Total Time: 30 Minutes

  • 1 cup uncooked white quinoa
  • 1 cup almond milk (plus more for serving)
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2-3 Tbsp maple syrup or coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract (optional)
  • 3-4 squares vegan dark chocolate (roughly chopped)

FOR SERVING optional
  • Mixed berries
  • Sliced banana
  • Coconut Milk
  • Hemp seeds or chia seeds

  • Thoroughly rinse quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer for 2 minutes, using your hands to sort through and pick out any discolored pieces or pebbles that may remain.
  • Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, add rinsed, drained quinoa, and toast for 3 minutes, stirring frequently, to dry up water and slightly toast.
  • Add almond milk, coconut milk, and a pinch of salt, and stir. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and cook for 20-25 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally. If it stops simmering, increase heat to medium-low. You’re looking for a slight simmer throughout the cooking time.
  • Once the liquid is absorbed and the quinoa is tender, remove from heat and add cocoa powder, maple syrup, and vanilla (optional). Stir to combine.
  • Taste and adjust flavor as needed. Add a bit more almond milk if you prefer the texture thinner. I added more cocoa powder and maple syrup for a more intense chocolate flavor.
  • Serve each bowl of quinoa with a small square of vegan dark chocolate, and any other desired toppings (listed above). I preferred mine with a bit more coconut milk, hemp seeds, and fresh fruit (optional).
  • Best when fresh, though leftovers will keep covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Reheat in the microwave, or in a small saucepan with additional almond milk to add moisture back in.
