Are you letting sideshows distract and discourage you from your major goals?

Think about a goal that remains elusive. From as far back as you can remember, you’ve wanted to achieve this.

What’s Your Word?

Have you ever heard about choosing one word and living with it for a year? Well some time back in November I decided to choose joy. Joy is the highest energy of all.

Allowing the Universe to Give You What You Need

There was a time when I could sit for hours reading. I would finish a 200 plus page book in about 2 days. I felt centred, connected, in touch with the Universe.
