How do you follow through?




End-of-life Coach, Writer, Author & Artist


Many think that you need to have great drive and ambition to do something great.  Like writing that great novel lurking inside you, becoming a master artist, a grand singer that touches the emotions, an awesome chef or anything that speaks to your soul.  But really the ambition is already inside you…waiting.

Let’s make two small changes.  Replace the word “drive” with discipline and the word “ambition” with commitment.  It’s about having discipline to follow through on your commitments.  It’s about having the commitment to making life better by following your path.  Not just making life better for you, but for everyone your life touches.

What most of us really lack is discipline.  The follow through.  We make promises we never keep.  We commit ourselves to something and then for whatever reason, we just stop and break the commitment.  We break our word.

If you make an appointment with your guides, spirit, God, whomever and you commit to sitting down every day they will come.  They will sit with you and help you.  If you show up they will meet you more than halfway.  But the real kicker is that you have to make the first step by making a commitment to yourself and then have the discipline to do it.  If you can’t keep a commitment to yourself then you will not be able to keep a commitment to God either. Because where does God live?  God & Goddess live in us, in our hearts and minds.  If you break your own word to yourself you are breaking it to God as well.

Are you as committed to your family as you are Sunday night football?  Are you as committed to God as you are your boss? Are you as committed to fulfilling you purpose as you are to the latest reality TV show?

The work will get done as long as you are disciplined to do it.  MAKE the time to sit and write each and every day, or paint or whatever.   Drive & ambition or commitment & discipline is a promise to yourself, your future, your committed to your guides, your commitment to God & Goddess.

Can you see that ambition is the desire already present in you to succeed?  And the drive it takes to get there is nothing more than a promise to yourself.  A commitment to be better, to do better.  Discipline is the follow though.  The steps that become habit.  The habit of success and fulfilling your passion.

’till next time,

Love, Peace & Pumpkin Pie

I received an email from a friend today about what might be going on in the cosmos.

I think that many of us are having similar issues.  Here is what she asked me.

Is there something going on energy-wise in the Universe these days?  I have been sidelined from almost all “other side” activity I don’t quite know what is going on.  I feel like I am being mired down, and I am having a LOT more ear and chest pain than I ever had before.  The Universe is evidently trying to do something and even The Boss is silent. 

Yes, the energies are high and many of us are being sent spinning off kilter. So much is going on as the councils of light are readjusting us and our planet. Light workers are being called to a higher service and being tested at a higher level.  Many are being stripped of our illusions and dragged kicking and screaming out of our comfort zones.  We are questioning ourselves, our path and our motives on a deeper soul level.  Those who are not ready to move to the next level are losing their way and their ability to act.  Some are being taught that true service often means sacrifice and hardship as we move into greater service–even the most basic of material things are falling away.  On an emotional/mental level, we are being reset–rebooted to new thought patterns and new ways of being and doing.  It will seem as if we are somehow different and old friends fall away because they don’t understand us anymore.  They can no longer relate.
On a physical level, old problems may return so they can be dealt with once and for all.  If our bodies are not ready to make the shift if will fight us or let us know we need more work before proceeding.  Do not ignore the mundane and see a doctor if need be, but remember that physical symptoms and conditions are signs of unfinished emotional business and pain that we have stuffed down and swallowed without allowing ourselves to feel and integrate the lesson.
Not to fear dear heart, see a doctor about your chest pain and keep walking in the light.  Do what ever you need to to stay on your path.

Morning Prayer

Great Spirit, as l travel through this day be my center, my inspiration, be in every thought and word.

Make sure I spread only love, joy and light.  Make sure that every action I make comes from spirit and not from ego.

Allow me to live as one with you.  Live in my heart so that I may love as unconditionally as you do.  To give your wisdom and healing to all that need.

Let me walk gently through the lives of others and leave them better for my presence.

Aho / Amen


Channeled Message from Kwan Yin

This was a portion of a channeled session from my soul sister, Alarua Raven.  You can find her on facebook and through my facebook page too.  If you ever get only one reading…this is the lady to help you.  She should be a national treasure.


The feeling of lostness….comes before the break through.  It’s a shift to let go what you have outgrown.  You are being prepared for more.  You are going through a major clearing: burning residue….we all go through a retrospect in order to shed skin….to deepen and grow as healers.  Even as you shed what no longer serves, it still served a purpose at that moment.

Decisions made, good and bad help us grow…what they show me: a snake (healer symbol) shedding skin shamanicly is you… growing deeper. You can no longer vibrate at the same level.  Your frequency changed.  All lower level (energies)  that does not harmonize, will not  adhere.  Transformation is happening on a cellular level for you…to transmute to a new place…so embrace the change and make it work for you.

…get in the flow with Mary.  Mary she says does not discount your value…you are worthy of the tasks assigned.  That in this we pass you through the filter to cleanse lower harmonic frequency that you may be guided to a higher place of being….that we may use your ability to channel and guide.  To teach and implement necessary due change in this life.

Pain is a catalyst for release…be as kind to yourself as you are to others.

With love and grace, Kwan Yin

Remember passion is obtained through love of your higher self… choose your power… don’t deplete it by unnecessary harm from self judgment.

Kwan Yin, I am with you.
