If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
Before my daughter goes to bed at night, I reaffirm to her what I believe are some of the most important thoughts and beliefs that I have used to guide me, my closest family, my friends, and my patients as well. These are the principles that I share with her:
One, believe in your dreams and desires and know that there is absolutely no limitation for any of them. It is not our job to ask as to how they will be provided by the universe, but simply to trust that you will achieve them and receive them. It is this deeply rooted knowing that feeds the vibrational frequency of the dreams and desires existing and, in turn, draws them to you.
Coupled with that is the second premise of love. Love is the universal magnet of all things. Love is the ultimate power from which to draw everything to you. Love yourself for everything you are. Love your family, your friends, your dog and your cat, all the people you walk by and smile. Love the music you listen to, the drawings you create, the toys that entertain you. Give attention to all the things you love and do not focus on the things you do not love. They are there to serve as reminders for you to give more attention to what you desire and love most. And as you practice this more and more, you will draw more of the things you love to you.
Third, give thanks. Give thanks for everything you have received in the past. Give thanks for everything you are receiving now in the present. And give thanks for everything you want and desire and will receive. Gratitude is another powerful magnet for achieving your desires. The more your desires come from love and gratitude the faster you will draw them to you because it is the love that you are putting back into the universe. What could be more beautiful than that?
Wouldn't it be nice to have had these tenets embrace you as you were growing up? It is important to have them now as adults. The amazing thing is that none of these ideas are novel. They are timeless beliefs that have been around forever and will be for eternity. It is about stripping away all the clutter and getting to the fundamentals of what makes us as individuals and collectively within the universe grow and evolve: love and gratitude. Believe in them, live them, and they will forever be there for you to blossom.
As you close your eyes tonight, may you know how blessed you are and celebrate with gratitude.

Bouncing with Style: Yoga Did Not Help Me Learn to Forgive

By Sandra Beck. One of the things I tried was yoga to get through the aftermath of my divorce. So many people told me...
Remember, perspective can cause two people to look at the same thing and see two totally different things.
