You DO matter

It is under the greatest adversity that there exists the greatest potential for doing good, both for oneself and others.His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama It seems like many of us are going through quite a tough time. It's as if the universe if forcing us to clean out our closets that have been the keeper of trauma, pain, secrets, lies and general unhappiness for most of our lives. While in ... Read the Post

No matter what has happened to you in your life, no matter how traumatic it may have been, know this: YOU DO MATTER. Your thoughts matter, your opinion matters, your dreams and wishes matter, your LIFE matters. Being victims of trauma can make us feel we are not worthy but this couldn't be farther from the truth. If you are feeling worthless, lost and completely alone, please know that this is not the reality of who you are. You do matter not only to many people in your immediate circle of human connections but also to the divine.

Gone Too Soon, But Not Gone Forever

My step-sister was killed by a drunk driver when I was twelve years old.   My brother and I were standing in the kitchen making blueberry Eggo waffles.  The doorbell rings.  It was so very early in the morning one could only guess who it might be.  As I made my way toward the front door I was intercepted by my step-father; "Wait in the kitchen." he said.

I have often asked myself this very question causing me to have suffered through extreme bouts of anxiety and depression focusing on it.  Sometimes the very thought can bring me to a state of panic. Where do we go when we die?  Is there an afterlife?  Purgatory? Hell? ... Read the Post

Our thoughts create this reality that we live it, and we play it out, similar to what actors do on a stage.  We continue to play out these dramas in order for our souls to learn and grow, to remember that love is the only thing that is real.  The idea that we are not separate (ego) but rather part of this amazing, loving kindness that is present in all of creation."

Mindfulness VS Mindlessness: Choose Wisely

The alarm goes off and it's time to wake.  I am often times exhausted from my mind racing in the wee hours of the morning, but I know that it is in this moment I must make a crucial decision. Mindfulness or Mindlessness?  I must choose.  But I must choose wisely, for while one can bring peace and tranquility, the other will take it from me. In choosing Mindfulness, my day starts out something ... Read the Post

In choosing Mindlessness, my day starts out like this... The alarm goes of at 5am and I shut it.  I wake up again at 7am and not motivated to do much else, I grab my phone. Good Morning Angelique!
