Raise Your Vibration

Raise Your Vibration

What Does It Mean To Accept My Father’s Death?

What Does It Mean To Accept My Father’s Death?

I light the paper. Soon enough the kindling catches fire. Smoke swirls around the firepit and lifts up into the sky. I watch as I wonder, "What does it mean to accept my father's death and let him go?" As I sit down, I notice the contradictions pulling inside of me....

Love Is Real.

Love Is Real.

At times in my life, I have felt the bounty of love. The kind that knocks you off your feet and makes you weep because you are so humbled. Because you didn’t believe that love would find you in the depths of darkness and pull you out. The kind of love that feeds and...

Can Higher Power be Inner Power?

Can Higher Power be Inner Power?

  Oftentimes when things are going well; we are finding success, getting our way, etc. we credit it to the universe or a higher power. "The universe is listening to me" or "My guardian Angel is on the ball today." I probably say similar things 10 times a week....

The Dark Side Of Summer- Bikini Body

Whenever I hear the phrase “bikini body”, whether on TV chat shows or in magazines and social media,  I roll my eyes. It makes me so mad. Summer is meant for fun. It is not meant for tortuous preparation and negative self-talk. More than 8.5 million people have...

Can Past Lives Help You In Your Life Now?
