New YOU Resolutions!!!!!!

GREEEEEEETINGS!!!! I hope everyone had an ecstatic holliday season and is looking forward to a blissful 2010!!! My girls marveled in the fun of the season, especially my 11 month old baby, Zoe. She was completely enamored by the lights, sounds, and all the yummy wrapping paper she enjoyed eating :-)!!!

It's almost time for the new year and we all know exactly what that entails....NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS! AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!! In light of this reality, I have decided to dedicate this issue of The Enlightener to give a few tips and tools to help make your transformations enjoyable!

The most popular New Year's resolution is always "I'm going to get rid of these extra pounds and become healthier." That is usually followed by a membership to gym that is only used for throughout January and part of February or until the pact is broken by that HUGE piece of chocolate cake :-( !!! Well, let's NOT do that this year, because first of all, you are beautiful and perfect just the way you are! Let's make the resolution to become healthier sound a little more like this...."I'm going to make myself even more beautiful by taking care of my body and honoring myself by doing things that will support a more healthy lifestyle." Follow that up with a few yoga DVD's or a Rebounder (much cheaper than a gym membership!) and lots of positive reinforcement. Know that by choosing a healthier way of life, you are supporting your spirituality and allowing yourself to more fully align with the Universe. Below, I have made a list of yuuuumy resources you can check out!
  • The Feminine Unfolding with Angela Farmer is an inspiring yoga DVD that teaches yoga in such a way that it connects us to our organic state of being. It's notexactly traditional, but that's part of what makes it soooooooo alluring!
  • Insight Yoga with Sarah Powers is another powerful yoga DVD. This one not only explores yoga, it also teaches meditation techniques as well as encourages inner insight along with your practice.
  • Inner Body Flow with Angela Farmer. What can I say? I'm a devoted Angela Farmer fan!!! This DVD is friendly to beginner's as well as the most advanced yoga lovers!
  • The "Profoundly Raw" Ebook. This FREE ebook contains 12 chapters, contributed by 12 well-known raw food authors, combining to offer an inspiring overview of a raw food lifestyle...I personally recommend at least 50% raw foods to anyone who wishes to become healthier and more vibrant. This book gives a variety of insight as well as a good starting point to get to know some of the leading pioneers in the raw food movement.
Everyone uses this time to dedicate themselves to making the changes they wish to see in their lives. One way to insure that this happens is to use affirmations and flood yourself with positive reinforcement. Here are a few more tips and resources for you to enjoy!
  • Create an 'affirmation book' for yourself. I created a book filled with wonderful affirmations as well as famous quotes and beautiful poetry and gave them away as Christmas Gifts! This can be a fun project for anyone to enjoy! Create a set of Affirmations that support your resolutions and put them in a book accompanied by lyrics to your favorite inspiring songs, poetry, snippets from your fav books, etc. You can create a file on Works and put fun pics throughout the pages. After you print it, take it to fedx and have it nicely bound for yourself to enjoy. Or if you want it to be more organic to your personality, you can write everything out in a notebook and cut pages from magazines to paste throughout. Have fun!!!!
  • I know I've mentioned Innertalk Cds like a million times, but it's only because I'm so enthused by their ability to effect us in such a profound way. If you visit the site, you will most definately find a CD to support any transformation or purpose.
  • Shazzie Speaks 2.0 is an amazing program that includes TONS of life altering material. I purchased this as a gift to myself and I'm LOVING it. Change your world ONE THOUGHT AT A TIME!!!!!
  • The Key by Jack Canfield is a nice little book that helps to put the law of attraction to work in your life. It's in a workbook format that will help you define your goals, create affirmations and begin creating the reality you desire. Absolutely PERFECT!!!!
  • Spirit Foods....I know that sounds funny, but there really are some foods that help us become more connected. Try consuming them with gratitude and an open heart. There's nothing more beautiful than feeling Mother Earth's love flowing through your body. A few 'Spirit Foods' are....reishi mushrooms, blue/crystal manna, chamae rose, suma, purple corn, he shou wu, Schizandra berry, all etherium powders, etc.
I hope that everyone has a marvelous 2010!!!!!! Have fun creating the year you desire. I know I will!!! :-)

Stress Free....

Hi Guys!!!!! Is everyone ready for the holidays????? I hope that you all are blissed out by all the extra love and excitment in the air. It's amazing at what this time of year seems to do to people. They're either radiantly cheerful or overly stressed. I've had a few clients that are worn down from all the pressure to buy, buy, buy and I can't stress enough of the importance of just relaxing and enjoying this time with our loved ones. My girls and I have had a marvelous time making gifts for our friends and family that are filled with love. However, if you are stressed and need a major 'destressing' here are a few things that can help.
  • Reiki Anyone???? Find a reiki practictioner in your area and treat yourself to a reiki session. If money is an issue, there are almost always free reiki circles that are comprised of loving individuals dedicated to sharing reiki with the world. 
  • Free Hypnosis! offers a free stress reducing hypnosis session that you can enjoy from the comfortof you own bed! For mor info visit They also offer a number of other amazing freebies.
  • Find an amazingly interesting novel to get lost in. (there's nothing wrong with a little 'escape' every now and then!) If you like to spend time with fairies, vampires, and other magical creatures like me, send me an email and I'll give you a list of the most delicious literature eva!
  • Have FUN!!! I know we all think that we have all of these monotonous obligations, but the truth is, we can choose to do whatever we want! When you get off of work tomorrow, instead of going home and doing all those things that seem inevitable (cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc.) do something ecstatic! The chores will be there waiting once you're less tense. After all, a happy you is more important than a clean house :-)
Hope these are helpful! Have a yummy day!:-)

Blissful Communication.....


Lately I've noticed that I've been having some issues surrounding communication and the way that I voice my needs or wants. Generally....I don't! I usually take the silent route and handle things internally. I somehow subconsciously expect for others to know or understand my needs, and when they don't, I often feel let down in some way. One of the "Four Agreements" (Don Miguel Ruiz) states that we should "assume nothing" and when I do this, it's not fair to myself or those around me.  This has always been a problem for me because I like to ensure everyone's happiness and often at the expense of my own. I've started to realize that regardless of my motives, this isn't a healthy habit to embrace. So I've decided to make a conscious change and learn to communicate more effectively so that everyone is happy! This morning, I began reading Nonviolent Communication by Marshall Rosenberg. This book teaches us how to always speak from a space of compassion and truth. Next on my list is Bliss Conscious Communication. I've also been doing a bit of work on my throat chakra to help keep it balanced and healthy. If anyone has any other suggestions that may help with my 'Communication Transformation', I'd love for you to share them.

"When we have the courage to speak our minds and use our voice to send the desires of our hearts from our inner world to the world outside, we take a bold step in making them happen. By removing fear of what others may think and expectation of what others should understand, we free ourselves and our thoughts from the bondage of the mental chamber and let loose our desires onto the canvas of the world. Next time we become aware that we have a choice about how to communicate, we can choose to use our outside voice and watch its creative power at work. " -Freeing Our Inner Voices (The Daily Om)


I have another excellent gift suggestion for all of you who would like to give the gift of inspiration for the Holiday Season!!! Repunzel Gifts offers a variety of relaxing and inspriational kits to give your loved ones. There's a Budha Gift Set that seemes perfect for someone you may know who is interested in learning meditation. It comes with a  Buddha statue, Sandalwood incense, a soapstone lotus flower incense burner and a Reiki charged WISDOM aromatherapy pillar candle and a glass candle holder. It also includes a Sandalwood mala for meditation, a little book for exploring Buddha's teachings and a two disc set for meditation and reflection.

The Book Fairy....

Yummmmmmmmmyyy...I have something truly delicious for you to sink your teeth into. For those of you who have yet to discover the marvelous effects of yoga and can't make it to a yoga class or afford expensive yoga DVDs, here's something you'll love.....a FREE yoga guide and 7 day yoga ecourse!!! This guide is sure to get you going on your path to a blissful yoga practice. To get your FREE ecourse, CLICK HERE!

Speaking of yummy things. I just finished digesting what is now one of my favorite pieces of literature. Personal Devlopment for Smart People by Steve Pavlina (A Hay House Publication of course!!!) is possibly the best book ever written on the subject of personal growth. Steve covers every end of the spectrum from health and money to relationships and spirituality.It's easy to read and understand (no fancy psycho babble!).  I wish I was book fairy so that I could make this wonderful peice of literature appear on your nightstand while you sleep, but since I'm not, pleeeeeease hop over to the book store (or Amazon!) and pick up a copy. You'll thank me later!

 *Mission of the Week*

I love working with affirmations. They allow us to create exactly what we want through the power of our words. If there's something in your life you'd like to change, try speaking your intentions for the situation aloud. A examples of affirmations are: I am Divine. I am loved. I am safe. I am successful. etc. Every affirmation will speak to a particular part of your being and after repeating them daily you begin to believe what you're saying and therefore, co creating the very affirmation. It's such a simple thing to do and yet, so effective. You can create any affirmation you'd like: I am thin. I am sexy. Whatever! Just be sure to create positive thoughts about yourself and your life daily and watch the positive energy you create grow. Do this everyday this week upon waking, in the shower, the car ride to work, on your lunch break, or any random time you choose.

"The words "I am" are potent words; be careful what you hitch them to. The thing you're claiming has a way of reaching back and claiming you." -A.L. Kitselman

I'm baaaack.....

Gloooorious Greeeeeetings!!!! I have missed you all soooooo much!!! I decided to take a mini vacation over Thanksgiving so that I could be fully present with my loved ones. Most of whom I hadn't seen in over a year. It was quite an enjoyable time!!! But I am back now and in effect!!!!

*Sharing Wisdom*

This bit of wisdom found it's way into my inbox and I wanted to share it with you. Here are six ways to make life more blissful.
"How To Find Your Bliss".....

1. Be grateful for being alive. A lot of people are too busy grumbling about things to be happy for life. Life is precious and daily recognition of your luck in being here is a must.

2. Count your friends. Whether you have two or twenty, every friend is precious. Let them know how much they mean to you - with compliments and kind words. They are an important part of your bliss, just as you are a part of theirs.

3. Read biographies. When great people who have impressed you have written about their lives, or someone else has written about them, you will get lots of tips and information on how to live life right.

4. Seek bliss deliberately. Don't let life's knocks squash you. Things are not always going to work the way you want to. Deal with that and don't lose your calm. Seek the silver lining and remember that you are wonderful and deserve your bliss.

5. Be a kind and fascinating person. When you are kind and listen well, others will gravitate to you. Practice kind thoughts everyday. If you feel anger, irritation or frustration, it is time to seek ways to deal with these feelings. Let the calm of life blow through you.

6. Be blissful. When you are happy, you are attractive, fun and enjoyable to be with. You are content with your lot and you are stable in your life's choices.

*Happy Holidays*

The Holidays are here and I have been giving much reflection to this time and what it means. Whether you're celebrating the birth of your Ascended Savior, the rededication of the Holy Temple, the The Great Mother's birth to the Sun King, or the transformation of Mother Earth, the focus of this time should be one of love, compassion, and meditation. So this year I've decided to give 'life enhancing' gifts to my loved ones. One excellent suggestion that was shared with me was Aura sprays. They are made with organic natural colors, organic and wild-crafted essential oils, and vibrational essences from gemstones. Aura sprays are color energized and are specifically designed to harmonize and balance your aura and your personal environment. Each spray is designed to clear space and to activate, balance and protect your personal aura. They are made in small batches during peak astrological times with the guidance and influence of archetypal and angelic beings.

You can get them in eight different colors:

Red: Energizing and Grounding
Orange: Creativity and Wisdom
Yellow: Joy and Bliss
Green: Balance and Direction
Blue: Peace and Communication
Pink: Unconditional Love
Purple: Healing and Transformation
Clear: Purifying and Cleansing

 I think these will make a unique gift that will be greatly appreciated. You can read more about them HERE!
