Dear One, There Is Nothing Wrong with You

Free Uplifting Coaching, No Strings Attached

Last week, with the help of Spirit and my mentor, Derek, I got my head straightened out. I once again remembered that I am a creator and the source of my experience.

Do I want to focus on and worry about […]

Reflecting on Your 2019, Creating Your 2020

Happy Solstice (in 3 days)!

Recently, I noticed something that might seem obvious.

More people living strong from within. More people […]
