Love, Sweet Love











This deer comes to visit her friend, the cat every morning to share a little love.

When you open your heart to love in all of it's wonder your life will be filled with it. There is no shortage of love. It does not cost a penny. We each have an endless supply. Love is not only a renewable resource, it grows and multiplies when you give it away.

And yet, people send me lots of emails expressing so much pain, self-doubt, and regret about love. Others have lists so long, with so many requirements and qualifications it's a wonder they find someone to say hello to, much less build a relationship with.

If you are looking for The One, everyone you meet may not be a match for you for a life-time partnership. But when you are loving and open to miracles -- well that's got to improve your chances.

No waiting required. Sit quietly and send love to people you care about. Or someone you have a problem with. When you are out and about send love to people with a smile or a blessing thought. It won't hurt and it opens the door to possibilities you may not have thought of.

Right now, today, I hope your beliefs about love will not block your chances for magical, unexpected experiences and miracles.

I would love to hear about your adventures in love. Your comments inspire us.

For more about how "Beliefs About Love" can get in your way and how to break out from them, there's an audio by that name available on my website:

Cheering you on to miracles of love!

I Love Writers

I love writers!

They say writers only need one tool, a seat-belt! A grimmer version explains how to write a book, "You just stare at a blank piece of paper until blood pours out of your eyes."

Thank you dear writers for:
  • The hours you spend alone
  • The courage to share your creation
  • The joy and wisdom you have given us
  • Opening our hearts and minds to new thoughts
  • Explaining things I would never understand without you
  • Helping me to make it through the night more than once -- a lot more than once
  • Making me laugh out loud
  • Allowing me to cry when I could not
  • Getting me through my childhood
  • Teaching me about compassion
  • Helping me to learn the "how to" of so many things
  • Daring to face the harshest, most snide criticism some people can dish out
  • Sharing the secrets of your very soul that your words reveal
  • Creating worlds of wonder for us to travel in and characters we remember for life
  • Filling me with hope
  • Making the would richer, finer, and more accessible to so many people
  • Letting me to dare to join your ranks!
I love you so dearly. Thank you so deeply.

Father's Day Wish












Hooray and thank you to all of the fathers who protect, provide for, and love their children. And for all of the men and women who do the same for children, throughout the world.

One of life's greatest joys is to see your own baby boy grow up to be a wonderful father. Here is my son Barnaby with his daughter, Emery.

My wish for fathers:

The joy of boundless love

The courage to face the scary times, like diseases and when your child is treated unfairly

The patience to weather conflicts

The wisdom to guide and let go

The support of many to help you

Abundance and health

The sheer delight of seeing your small person grow and learn, flourish and thrive

Amazing happiness

A loving home

Loving laughter like no other kind
Appreciation, loyalty, and love from your little ones as they grow into a beautiful, strong, healthy, loving, successful, happy, adults.

Happy Father's Day!

How Will We Find You?

If there are people who would love to know about you and all you have to offer, how will they find you?

That question rocked the room at the Breakout Coach Training in Palm Springs last year. It dredges up beliefs that keep us from connecting with the very person or people we dream of. It opens doors for me and my coaching students so I recommend it to you.

Today I asked, "If there are people who would benefit from your work, how will they know? How will they find you?" My answer prompted me to write this. There's some more at the end.

Why is it such a big deal? Why are we reluctant to let others know about the richness of our experience, our wisdom, what we have created and what we dream of creating? The desire to be discovered battles the desire to hide our uniqueness, the spark that might not fit the established norm. It keeps us hungry but quiet. We may minimize our gifts and resent not being recognized.

Talk about driving with one foot on the gas and the other on the brake.

What blocks you from telling us who you are? Do you ever hide or down-play your gifts, what you can do, and the value it has for us? What are you concerned will happen if you communicate honestly, clearly and powerfully about who you are and what you have to offer?

Here are some of the beliefs people discovered and shared with me most often:
  • I'll seem like I'm bragging
  • If I get too big, the fall will really hurt
  • I don't want to be like those big blow-hard people who hype everything
  • I don't want to define myself
  • I'm not good enough
  • I'm not into selling
  • Marketing is not for me
  • I'm not one of those people who talk about themselves easily
  • I'm not good enough
  • I don't deserve it (attention, success, being known)
  • People will think that I think I'm all that
  • People will attack me
In my many years helping people to break out from beliefs that block happiness and success, I've never found it useful to lecture or find fault. Questions open these doors better than battering rams.

Discovering a limiting belief is the first giant step. Unraveling it comes next. Do any of these beliefs  hold you back? Did you find some different ones of your own?
Here are some questions to ask about them:
  • Do you believe that?
  • What seems true about it?
  • What are you concerned would happen if you did not believe that?
There is a lot of space and energy on the far side of a limiting belief. Someone I worked with recently declared, "I'm taking off my minimizer bra!" She has a new slogan, "Thou shalt not self-deprecate."

Cheering you on to magical connections and great adventures.

Here's the answer I got when I asked,  How will they find me?" I put the best of how you can break out from limiting beliefs to happiness, success, and miracles into the books, audios, and videos in the Breakout Store

People tell me the content is profoundly useful. Every time someone buys something in the Breakout Store I get excited like a kid at Christmas because I know there is a good chance someone will really benefit from my life's work. Thanks!
