Growing pains

There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud

was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Accepting life as it is

“Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.”

Fearless and free


The world we see that seems so insane is the result
of a belief system that is not working.
To perceive the world differently,
we must be willing to change our belief system,
let the past slip away, expand our sense of now,
and dissolve the fear in our minds.”

Trusting your intuition

The thing that matters the most in life
is the connection to your deeper self.
Without it, you will live unconsciously.

Listening to our truth

The spell hunger had over her was broken 
when she listened to her truth. 
She had been hungry to be heard,
yet had minimized her feelings,
putting others first.

Trusting a Higher Power

She saw all her lessons as flawless,
even when it took effort to stay upright.

Saying goodbye to yesterday

"It was the in-between time,
before day leaves and light comes,
a time I've never been partial to because
of the sadness that lingers in the space
between going and coming."
Sue Monk Kidd

Our life lessons

“To graduate from the "School of Life" you need to
 have met the following criteria:
found your life purpose, lived in essence, trusted life,
became awake, reprogrammed beliefs, handled anger,
forgiven everyone, loved yourself, dealt with fears,
overcome anger you had with God/you,
cleared your emotional complexes & negativity,
let go of the past...”

“You will find that it is necessary to let things go;
simply for the reason that they are heavy.
So let them go, let go of them.
I tie no weights to my ankles.”

Diminishing ourselves

The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others
and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us,...
the divine floods of light and life
no longer flow into our souls.”

Living deeper

The greatest explorer on this earth never takes voyages as long as those
of the man who descends to the depth of his heart.

Learning through trial and error

"I've learned my most helpful and meaningful messages about who I am and what I deserve in my life through baptism by fire. I was dunked in and out of life's river many more times than I wish to remember. All of the beauty and debris have scrubbed me and rubbed me until I was washed of my many illusions-illusions that only made me hungrier."

Moving forward

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes.
Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality.
Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”

An honest inventory

Even though my life was good,...
I didn't posses the confidence, the completeness...
As a young woman, mother, wife, and professional,
I was filled with insecurity and self-doubt.
Everyday I wore the façade of being sure of myself,
but deep inside, I wasn't sure of anything...
I wasn't completely Real.
Toni Railen-d'Antonio

Being real with myself

“Like a Columbus of the heart, mind and soul I have hurled myself off the shores of my own fears and limiting beliefs to venture far out into the uncharted territories of my inner truth, in search of what it means to be genuine and at peace with who I really am. I have abandoned the masquerade of living up to the expectations of others and explored the new horizons of what it means to be truly and completely me, in all my amazing imperfection and most splendid insecurity.”

Broken pieces

Because of our broken hearts, our emotional wounds,...
what the disease of Codependence causes us to do is abandon ourselves.
It causes the abandonment of self...our own inner child...
that inner child is the gateway to our channel to the Higher Self.
It is necessary to own and honor the child who we were
in order to love the person we are.
-Robert Burney

Hungry for acceptance

"I spent years having an empty affair with things and relationships that I thought were something, but turned out to be little more than nothing. Nothing was a force that took up residence in my life and refused to leave... As you can imagine, my affair with nothing was bloody, brutal, exhausting, empty, and left me lonely... Nothing is not a man... It is an illusion...a ghost, and not a friendly one. It's vanishing always left me with skid marks on my heart. So often my encounters with nothing have been connected to my need and hunger for love... I am grateful and relieved to have finally ended my romance with my hunger."

Living authentically

“We all need someplace to fling all of our troubles, cares, worries, joys, and sorrows, trusting that we will be met with wide-open arms." Dr. Robin Smith


The quote is so true and is exactly the reason why I am putting together a new 6-week workshop called "Reclaiming Your Power". It is for women who are motivated to do their personal work in an intimate setting. We all need a safe place to be who we are and feel what we feel, without any pretenses. If you are ready for some positive changes in your life, as well as, meeting other women who are motivated to be authentic too, contact me for more information.

Pausing to reflect inward

“People dread silence because it is transparent; like clear water, which reveals every obstacle—the used, the dead, the drowned, silence reveals the cast-off words and thoughts dropped in to obscure its clear stream. And when people stare too close to silence they sometimes face their own reflections, their magnified shadows in the depths, and that frightens them.”

Intuitive living

“If you ask the Universe to be your partner
and guide you on the path to wholeness,
it will oblige.”

Reaching for the highest branch

“Pain is a spiritual wake-up call showing you that there are oceans you have not yet explored. Step beyond the world you know. Reach for heights that you never thought possible. Go to places you have deemed off limits. This is the time to take off the shell of your past and step into the rich possibilities of your future. God does not give us dreams that we cannot fulfill. If you want to do something great with your life-whether it's to fall madly in love, become a teacher, be a great parent-if you aspire to do something beyond what you are doing now, this is the time to begin.”
