unhappy giving money woman Here’s today’s 30 SECOND MINI-COACHING Session…

TOPIC: LACK OF MONEY….How much is enough?

When you come at the subject of money from a place of fear, even if you have $100 billion it’s not quite ‘enough’… How much of what you do in a day centers around doing things so that you get money? Most people live paycheck to paycheck or client to client… just barely making it by. Even if you have savings the fear of losing it makes most PLAY SMALL…

Today I invite you to live your life as if money were #5 on your list instead of #1 or #2… You will notice immediately your breath shift and your shoulders dropping… That’s a sign that you are no longer ‘leaking’ energy to the fear but just being more present in the moment…. from there is the ONLY way you can start living an authentic life… which is the only path to a happy one!

NAMASTE CUTIE PIES! May you have the best day of your entire life… so far!


IMG_0360Welcome to today’s 30 Second Mini-Coaching session!  You came to the right place!

Recently I’ve come into the realization that “adulthood”, a term I’ve been avoiding even though I’m 46 years old… is not what I expected it would be when I was a kid. When I was a kid 46 was ANCIENT… Now that I have a 76 year old mom, 76 is WAY young to me! Life is all relative. We never know how it will be until we are in the situation so JUDGING others when you don’t have all the facts, it not a very good way to use your energy. Just a gentle reminder today that people are doing the best they can with what they have and when they know how or can to do better, they will. Just like you don’t like when others judge you… give others that same courtesy, not because it’s “right” but because you have some really fun, important, wonderful, challenging stuff of your own to work on… and you need that energy for YOU!
Ultimately, this is the basic root of SELF-ESTEEM… let the energy that was meant for you stay within you so that you can fully grow into yourself!… From there you can help a lot more people by being authentically YOU!
Great big hugs,

Glinda the good witch

Welcome to today’s 30 Second Mini-Coaching session!  You came to the right place!

I love this Martha Beck quote, “We are a time-starved people, obsessed with fitting huge achievements into our few years. In the process, we often fill our buckets with things that don’t matter or work. But when we give up on trying to change what can’t be changed, and simply embrace what we love, a miracle occurs. We notice that the moment to be happy has already arrived. It’s here, now.”

Happiness is not a long road. Happiness ONLY lives in the right now…each and every RIGHT now you have. Focus on your RIGHT NOWs all day today and see how life starts shifting. This is not what the world at large teaches but notice that there are two ‘LIVING LEVELS’ you can be on… 1. THINKING about life…. of 2. LIVING life… Only #2 can give you what Glenda the Good Witch said in the Wizard of Oz, “YOU HAD IT ALL ALONG.” What you seek in others lives in you. THAT is the miracle. Live the miracle of you out loud!



Just when the catepillar thought life was over it turned into a butterflyHAPPY TUESDAY!!!! Here’s your 30 Second Mini Coaching Session…

We are always transforming in each and every moment. The trick it to let go and embrace the moment in front of you…as it comes… then gently releasing it so the next moment can take it’s place…When you don’t your life gets BACKED UP, CLUTTERED & CLOGGED…RESULT, you feel stuck.

If this is you go back to your RIGHT NOW.

Start with your breath.

Feel what you feel in this moment and then… let go.

Feel your shoulders drop.

Feel your breath.

Flow into your breath as it flows into you.


heart attack symptoms Heart attack woman HAPPY MONDAY! Did you know that most heart attacks happen on Monday mornings?…(take a deep breath).

Worked well for me.You should be able to talk with a human being, including a licensed pharmacist, to answer questions about your prescription.

The reason this happens is because of stress. STRESS is not a “real” thing in the sense that you can touch or point to it, but its effects are real. STRESS is a result of FOCUSING on what is NOT WORKING… on what is WRONG. When you are on that ‘channel’ you see everything that is going wrong. Because of those thoughts your energy levels start calling more energy to come down to move you into FLIGHT or FIGHT. It happens on many levels including energetic, mental and physical. When you keep ACTIVATING that over and over again… it’s like reeving your car’s engine over and over again. After a while, your car starts to wear down. Sometimes we do it so often that it becomes a habit.


Heart Attack SignsI used to be one of those people who said that meditation was not for me. I always laughed off that sitting down for that long was too tough for someone like me who was always on the go…. Our society loves people on the go! Busy! Busy! Busy! More! More! More! This type of living feeds into the building of STRESS. Best thing to do is notice. Shift your habits. Do less, a lot less. Less TV. Give stuff away. Sell stuff. Buy less. Eat less non-food. Less connecting with machines. Let go of unfinished projects. Spend more time sleeping… yup, I said it. Sleep more. More quiet time. More time in nature. More drinking water. More locally grown. More connecting with people. More walking barefoot, especially outside.

THANK YOU for reading today’s 30 SECOND MINI-COACHING session… Comment below…Share with heart friends because it spreads the love! Remember what you are seeking is seeking you!

Great big hugs,

teacher on the boardHAPPY FRIDAY!!!!! If you are reading this you have been gifted with yet another day on planet earth! How painful…if you let it be! – or- How wonderful…if you let it be!

Today's 30 SECOND MINI-COACHING SESSION is a gentle reminder that sometimes life can be a cruel teacher if you don't set your expectations. She gives the test first and then the lesson. This is only a problem if you are expecting the opposite. So many people fight life. Don't know if that is you or not? Well if life feels like a struggle than you are definitely fighting life! You are living in THE LAND OF SHOULD, constantly comparing and judging your life to what “should be”. Notice and set yourself free. Don't know how? Come here every day to learn how. YOU GOT THIS!

PUT THIS TO DO ON YOUR CALENDAR!!!! Do you eat every day? So why not come to and feed your life the things it needs to be happy! See you tomorrow! Today, leave your comments below!

Great big hugs,



HAPPY THURSDAY! Today's 30 SECOND MINI-COACHING SESSION is all about GRATITUDE and fits whether you are at work or home!

ebenezer before and afterIt has become very popular to say we “should” be grateful but most people don't take that extra step to FEEL the gratitude like Ebenezer Scrooge, the principal character in Charles Dickens's 1843 novel, A CHRISTMAS CAROL felt when after all three ghosts visited him…. By getting his AHA he entered into a different vibration of existence. You could literally see the change in the way he looked and moved in the world. The “transformation” is complete and instant!

All it really took was STOPPING and NOTICING!


what am I grateful for today?Step 1: Ask yourself: “WHAT AM I THANKFUL FOR?”

Step 2: Allow yourself the space (no matter how much noise and confusion is going on around you) to FEEL the question. Watch your breath change and your shoulders drop.

Step 3: Let yourself be carried away into the happy feelings that arise. Again you will notice your breathing more deeply and smiling by default.

Step 4: Wrap yourself in that amazing energy/vibration/feeling and let it stay with you for the rest of the day. If it starts to 'wear-off' simply repeat the exercise because it only takes a few moments to enter bliss.

Advertisers will sell you lotions and potions to help you have the life you dreamed…. BUT all that has done is liter and pollute our planet. As we stop the madness and awaken we will turn more and more to simple things like asking “WHAT AM I GRATEFUL FOR?” and find if allow ourselves to let go…we are starting to TRULY LIVE many times for the first time in a long time!

Take a moment and share below what you are THANKFUL FOR.
