I cried. Just saying.

“Self esteem is keeping the promises that you make
to yourself.…

~ Eric Thomas

I realized after watching Matthew McConaughey’s talk this week about the place where he grew up (Uvalde, Texas), that I had still been processing the shooting.

This is not an email about guns, nor is it a political one either.

This is an email about what the world would be like if we kept the conscious and unconscious promises we make to ourselves. Sometimes those promises, if we were to have enough esteem for ourselves and the world around us, would include talking about hard topics.

Sometimes it would even include getting in front of hundreds of millions of people when you didn’t have to.

Maybe you would stand up for an inequity.

Maybe you would tell the truth to your spouse.

Maybe you would eat organic.

Maybe you would make friends with some neighbours.

Maybe you would join a movement that has been calling to you and speaks to your heart.

Can you see how those, with esteem for themselves, must also have esteem for their communities and the world around them?

I’ll give my self-esteem a 7.5, based on the definition in Eric Thomas’s quote:

“Self esteem is keeping the promises that you make to yourself.…”

On some subjects, I’m probably a 9.5 (there’s always room to grow), and on some subjects I think I’m a 4.5 and getting better (because I think I might have been a 1 at some point on the subject of my body).

One thing that I will reiterate that Matthew said, that is also a truth for me:

“We are not as divided as “news, media, social media, insecure people who are in fear” tell us we are.“ That is also my experience.

You are either creating the future you want to live in with your words and actions, or you are Activating a past through words and actions inspired by fear. One thing I know for sure, is that I do not want to be a part of this world standing still as it is.

What will you do to get people thinking?
Who can you thank today?
What can you do to make one person’s life better?
Or, maybe there’s a politician you need to write a letter to?

Eric Thomas and I also have an idea in common:

If you are standing still, you are still going backwards, because every thing/project/aspect of this world is rotating anew.

Just thought I’d shake your tree a little.

With love,


I asked myself two years ago: How can I have my body thrive through times of great change? And I’ve been following those guidelines and sharing them with our clients. However, I realized that so many people are feeling stressed, inflamed, menopausal, and tired. You can heal your adrenals and regain mental clarity. Anyone can. I am going to share the important skills, protocol and so much more. Please join us on June 27th for one of the most important health workshops I’ve ever done. Tell a friend. Check it out and save your seat today!

(We will also be including a Health Assessment called WISE™ Analysis for every participant: Value $300.00)

Solar eclipses, opportunities to choose, and trying times…

While I was with my parents in Bracebridge, Ontario, having a late Thanksgiving, miracles abounded.

My sisters and I had a beautiful conversation with our parents. This time of their life is so interesting for all of us. I am constantly speaking with their higher selves to make sure my connection with them is strong, I love them so.

I appreciate that I am skilled at communicating on many plains of existence.

A dear friend asked what do we do with the evil in the world…

A dear friend recently asked me what do we do with the evil in the world.

Well, first we have to define evil. I find the word ‘evil’ does not express what is going on within the people who commit the acts causing such great upset. Any combination of the following may have happened to them, leading to actions described as ‘evil’.

Disenfranchisement, loneliness, abuse, severe disempowerment, lack of faith in love and communication based on their past, poverty, and therefore vulnerability, indoctrination by others who have felt the same, trying to find a place to belong, being heard, an expression of the deep resentment and anger they have internally for all the unfairness they perceive. It is coupled, or should I say fuelled, by a sprinkling of righteousness on all sides.

A book that is so special to me…

The other day I was in my sauna, sweating my brains out because my body had been in pain. I was listening to the book ‘Braiding Sweetgrass’. It’s brilliant. The first time I read it, I wasn’t able to take in the full magnificence of the words within. I was in a different place.

We’ve just had our Canadian Thanksgiving, the Shadow of American Thanksgiving which follows in November.

I was listening to the story of how important nuts were to those tribes that lived on the prairies and in the forest. They would store nuts, much like wise squirrels and chipmunks do because they contain protein and good fats for the winter.
