One of the biggest set backs you can give yourself is allowing your “outer life” control your “inner life”. Your inner LIFE is who you really are. It is where nothing can break you and all that matters can be found. It is where you are protected, safe, loved and one with Source.

When we are faced with a broken relationship, financial or business challenges, the death of a loved one, disease, etc. we have a tendency to fall into its evil trap of worry, stress, anxiety, pain and depression. We allow ourselves to be consumed and sucked up in what is happening to us instead of continuing to be consumed with our natural state of being which is peace, well-being and happiness.

How does this happen? It happens because we step OUT of our inner life and INTO our outer life. Something unexpected spins you like a Tasmanian devil and before you know it you are in a downward spiral toward the depths of your own inner hell. A place where there is no hope. A place where you literally have to crash and burn before you can even begin to think about pulling yourself up and out. BUT, it does not have to be this way. No matter what is happening in your outer life, if you can just remember to remain in the peace of the moment, to remain in your inner life, LIFE itself will carry you through.

Life is in fact the way we make it because we always have a choice. Nothing can take you away from who you really are; from your inner life unless YOU allow it to. If the choices you are making seem to create a more stressful and difficult life experience, take a step back and ask yourself where you are. Are you in your outer life or are you in your inner life. If you constantly find yourself in your outer life, do, think and feel the things that will take you back to your inner life. Do what brings a smile to your face, warms your heart, and creates joy and happiness.

Trust me, I know how difficult life can get but I also know how easy life can be when we just allow the natural flow of life’s goodness carry us away! The Universe is on your side and ready to give you everything you want so the choice is yours. How would you like to make your life today? Would you like to make it happy or would you like to make it difficult? Would you rather live within the bounties of peace, well-being and love or the confines of stress, anxiety, worry, pain and depression? Choose to be and live from your inner life and see how quickly your outer life changes for the better!

Love & Light,
