Have you ever had people in your life who, by just being around, seem to drain your emotional and mental energy? In other words, energy vampires? When we talk about vampires, we are not talking about literal bloodsuckers. We are using the ‘vampire’ reference for a non-voluntary feeding that takes place on our life force energy from another living consciousness–either in the physical or non-physical realms and on all levels of our Beingness — physical,…

Are you shackled to your disparaging self-critic? Subservient to that mean inner voice? If so, that’s a one-sided relationship where you’re always the loser. There’s just so much tension, friction, and pain. And living with this relentless criticism has worn down your resolve and destroyed your self-confidence too. Little wonder you’re so exhausted and demoralized. No surprise that sometimes you feel a failure. That controlling voice has made all your decisions and crafted your life…

We all have a past. Most of us can’t even escape our 20’s without one. We go through our lives loving, losing, and hopefully loving again. It’s part of the human condition. Sometimes you meet someone who seems really special. Maybe you felt safe with him or life was wonderful and exciting when he was around. You hoped it could last forever. Of course there were problems, but the sex was so hot or he…

People often blame the lack of passion and desire in long-term relationships on over-familiarity, busy lifestyles, hormonal problems, and having children. Or simply that it is unavoidable in long-term relationships. But there is another reason, not yet known to many people. When we explore beneath the surface of our personality, we discover that within our subconscious mind and in the unconscious exists various known sub-personalities, energy patterns, or selves. So we are not one self,…

Yoga is a tremendously ancient art, used for centuries not only to strengthen and improve the body, but also to help the soul. Our modern understanding of yoga is very far removed from the all-encompassing philosophy which used to be the basis of yogic practice, and our reduction of the art says a lot about the modern mindset. Traditional yoga is about much more than just improving your physique – it’s a transformative and transcendent art, which…

We all create our own truths to protect ourselves, make ourselves feel better, or justify an action. Just imagine for a moment, if much of what you’ve learned from your parents, from society, from school, from a doctor, wasn’t the truth at all…what if they were only beliefs? Let me tell you a little story that a friend told me: “Every year at Christmas, a young mother would cut off both ends of a ham…

You’d like to learn how to reach your full potential, but you continually find yourself stuck because life just feels like it hasn’t turned out the way you thought it would… Your heart yearns to be somewhere else, do something else, and be someone else. If you find at least one of the above sentences to be true, you should definitely listen…

I recently came across an article discussing some of the more difficult spiritual notions that people grapple with:  focusing on the positive, letting go of resistance, and accepting what is. The author found herself struggling with moral relativism and a feeling as if nothing mattered, and that there was no difference between reality and perception. One of the main comments regarding the article was a notion that many in the spiritual community talk about, wherein…

If you’ve ever picked through woman’s magazine, chances are you’ve read how to “drop 3 pounds a week without exercise,” have the “best abs ever,” and “uncover the key to more energy.” It seems these universal themes are the perfect trilogy that will make us all happy and fulfilled. Yet what I see over and over is that being thin doesn’t result in more happiness, more self-confidence or more success in life. Sure, being thin…

Think about your life for a second. There are many contributing factors that mold your emotions. Whether they are for the better or for the worse, you fight and struggle endlessly to find sure ways to make your life happier. And as much as you work on this, you feel that there are many tedious areas in your life that just shoot those aspirations away. Anywhere from a job that you desire to leave, a…

Put down the coffee! We know you don’t want to live a tired, lethargic life. We know you want to relive your youth, going back to the days when you had energy to spare. But let’s face it, coffee isn’t doing that for you. Instead of downing endless cups of joe and hoping for a burst of energy, try these 10 all-natural energy boosters to give you the zap of energy you need to get…

To believe that we’re only as worthwhile as others agree to see us burdens us with feeling that ‘winning the good opinion of others’ is somehow our responsibility. And such a mistaken mindset leaves us the perennial victim of our relationships, and never the victor in them. The only way we can be released from any painful sense of false responsibility is to see that it is based in a false belief. To see through…

People sometimes frown on the idea of “going back to the past” to heal themselves. Some of the usual comments I hear are: “I want to let the past go.” “I don’t like rehashing the past.” “That’s just a story my mind tells.” “But I’ve already done it many times.” All this may be true and valid. But I invite you to ask yourself: Have you really healed the past or did you just try…

Creating the life you desire and deserve can be simple if you think of it as a recipe, in which the specific ingredients are mixed up in a particular order to get the desired result…

So all you need to do is follow a few simple steps that will bring you to the realization of your dreams – your Bigger Life.

Some people tend to turn simple processes into complicated ones. Life can be complex, but there is a difference between complex and complicated. Most people want a complex life that includes a rich mix of professional, personal, social, cultural and entertainment events.

Complexity can be very satisfying since it’s part of the diversity and richness that life offers to us. But on the other side, there’s the possibility of choosing a complicated life, which means that we might feel stress, unbalance and confusion, making us ungrounded and unproductive when it comes to making decisions.

We all have the ability to create the life that we want, it’s our birthright to claim it. To enjoy the complexities of life, just focus on these small details that will make big differences:

1. Know what you really want and why 

You will not be able to have a better and bigger life if you don’t know what you really want. I mean what YOU really want, not what you want based on other people’s expectations, but based on your own desires.

Having clarity on what you really want and why you want it will open up the channel to unlimited possibilities and new opportunities. Your ‘Why’ will be the driving force and motivation you need to live the life you want. Once you have clarity, start setting clear goals and create a plan of inspired actions, but most of all, take action!

2. Practice Gratitude

Gratitude is the attitude! There is always a reason to be grateful for and being grateful towards life expands our consciousness and enables us to be in the present moment.

Choose to focus your attention on the things that are good with your life now. Whatever you focus your attention on, will re-produce, so don’t focus on what you think is wrong. Appreciating the beauty in little things, and being grateful for all the wonderful things you already have in your life, makes life easier and more pleasant, not only for you, but for the ones around you too.

3. Aim for Balance

Maintaining a balance in life is the key to be able to create, respond (note that I mentioned respond, not react), have success and flow with life. Achieve balance in all areas of your life including:

  • Taking care of yourself so you can enjoy good health and wellness.
  • Knowing yourself – know who you really are. Know that worthiness is your birthright and as a spiritual being, you’re whole and complete.
  • Being true to yourself – live from an authentic place, live and honor your own story.
  • Eliminating tolerations, distractions, frustrations and stressful situations from your life – set healthy boundaries and avoid complications.

4. Surround yourself with Positivity

Spend time with people that are happy, positive and optimistic. People that will make you laugh, that value your worth, appreciate you for who you really are and that inspire you. People that motivate you and inspire you.

Read or listen to something inspirational or motivational every day. Create your own inspirational ritual. Preferably in the morning, that way you start your day with a great boost of inspiration and motivation.

5. Be aware of your choices

Whatever you focus on will reproduce, so be aware of your thoughts. Choose to spend your time and energy in a productive way. Make your dreams the center of all your decisions.

Every time you choose in life, that choice is your evaluation of yourself. Every decision you make represents who you think you are, are it represents the value you put upon yourself. We ALWAYS have a choice in everything we do. And the results we get in life are based on those choices.

We are the gatekeepers of what goes on in our minds, and our lives. You’re the creator of your life, so make sure your choices bring positivity, growth, meaning and happiness to your life.

6. Live your Life with Purpose

We are all here with a unique purpose. It is as unique as a fingerprint. You can find what your purpose is from your spirit, not from your ego.

Honoring your calling is one of the most important actions successful people take. Not being in alignment with your Authentic Self and your Life Purpose will make you feel stuck, with a lack of joy and fulfillment in your life.

When you don’t reconnect with your True Self and life purpose, you feel that you are living your life on automatic, without meaning, fulfillment and excitement. This dissatisfaction will affect your relationships and your physical and emotional health, which could eventually lead to anxiety and depression.

7. Believe in Yourself

Self-confidence is one of the keys to happiness and success. It is a mental state that can be cultivated, it’s a conscious choice that you can make.

There is no one that has more power, more knowledge or more access to resources than anyone else, we’re all equal, and we all have the same opportunities. You create all your experiences. You will experience successes or pain and struggle thanks to you. Accepting this level of responsibility is powerful, because it really means that you can do, be or have anything you want.
