Feeling lonely?
Next time you feel lonely ask yourself, "Am I relating to myself,God and others from my head or from my heart?" Heart centered communication allows for honest, compassionate engagement, even if the words are on the surface, the energy is deeply connected. This type of communication is always more satisfying. Try it and notice the difference.

I ordered a beautiful platter from you in 2011 for my step-son's wedding and they are still talking about it! Now my son is getting married and I want to give them the same amazing gift. Thank you. Kathie Begin 4/5/2013
Can we really be nicer to others than we are to ourselves?
I often hear people say, "I'm nicer to others than I am to myself." I have said it. But think about it. If we have a pattern of judgment, shame and blame towards ourselves, why should it be any different with others?
If some old wounds cause me to avoid my feelings and trigger instead anger, shame and blame, why would it be any different with others? I bet there are lots of judgments we make on a daily basis of which we are unaware.
The good news is that the more compassionate and kind we learn to be with ourselves, the nicer we will be to others and the more joy we will find in our relationships. We can start by not blaming ourselves when we judge others or feel unkind. Rather, ask, what am I feeling right now? What is happening inside of me that I'm feeling so defensive? What feels like it is being attacked? Chances are that what ever we think others are "doing to us," we are doing much more of it to ourselves. Enjoy the awakening process!

The Forgiveness Prayer
I forgive
those who may have
hurt me knowingly
or unknowingly
and I ask forgiveness
of those I have may have
hurt knowingly
or unknowingly
in this life
or in lives past.
Look at the opposite to discover our hidden negative self image.
If I want others to think I'm successful, I probably deep down, feel like a failure. If I need to prove my strength, deep down, it's because I believe that I am weak. If I want everyone to think I'm pretty, I probably have a self image of being not so pretty.
Once we discover what negative self perceptions or images we need to heal, we can be more self aware and get the help we need.
Remember most of these negative self images are conditioned - learned, probably from people who didn't really know you but spoke or acted our of their own pain. This can happen over generations - but it doesn't have too! Doing our own healing work stops the negative cycle and helps us enjoy life more. An Inner Listening session can open doors on the path to inner healing. Let me know if I can help.
