Do you love your morning coffee?

If you love your morning coffee, but have been nervous about its effects on your brain health, I have exciting news!
Here’s the story…
Today I received an interesting email and here it is for you.  Enjoy:

It turns out that coffee may help lower your risk of having a stroke, especially if it’s a regular part of your diet.
A new study, just published in Stroke: the Journal of the American Association, seems to show that the more coffee (or green tea) people drink, the lower their risk of having a stroke.
This is especially good news because, aside from water, coffee and tea are the most popular beverages in the world. Here’s just some of what the study uncovered:
People who drank at least one cup of coffee per day had a 20% lower risk of stroke.
People who drank at least one cup of coffee per day had a 32% lower risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (this condition causes about 13% of strokes).
People who drank 2 to 3 cups of green tea each day had a 14% lower risk of stroke.
DESIGN: The study examined the coffee and green tea drinking habits of over 82,000 adults, between the ages of 45 to 74, and followed them for an average of 13 years.
CONCLUSION:  Dale Webb, D.Phil., says: “We welcome this study, which suggests that the benefits of antioxidants in coffee and green tea offset the potential harm from caffeine. The results demonstrate higher consumption of green tea and coffee might reduce the risks for stroke, especially for intracerebral hemorrhage.”
SUGGESTION: As in all things, moderation is recommended. If you already drink a cup of coffee each day, this study seems to show there’s no reason to change that behavior. In fact, your morning coffee may be helping protect you from a stroke!

News worthy-a gift for you

This weekend I completed a professional hypnotherapy course.  It was a lot of fun, and tons of great info to even better help my clients.  I am so blessed and happy to be doing the work I do.  Every day, I ask myself: How did I get so lucky to do the work I absolutely love?  How does it get any better?

My birthday is this week and to celebrate it, I am giving away 4 (FREE) hypnotherapy sessions in the month of May.  Have you ever wanted to try hypnosis but never got to doing it?  What is now the time?

For details email me directly at and may all of life come to you with ease and joy and glory.

In gratitude for you,


Happy Holidays to all!

A different perspective on relationship

Today I would like to share with you an article by a friend and a phenomenal artist Jason Astoria.  Please enjoy 🙂  I know I did.

A Brief, although perhaps Tedious, Philosophical Exploration of Relationship from the Perspective of Access Consciousness

by Jason Astorquia, 6/27/2012

Hello, Infinite Being, how do you be? Yes, that is correct, I am talking to you…you expansive, amazing, infinite being of magnitude.
What does it feel like to be addressed as an Infinite Being? Are you open to the possibility that you are One with the infinite space between the molecules of everything that is? Does that feel light to you? Is that hitting on something you’ve always known to be true, but that somehow this reality convinced you could not truly be? Hmmm…
So, let’s just say that you are an Infinite Being, okay? Now, here you are, in this reality, looking for, searching for, seeking that amazing relationship. Sound familiar?
Relationship is defined as the state of being connected or related. And the thing about connection is that, given you are an Infinite Being, wouldn’t that first require separation? So, in order to create the illusion of relationship, of connection, what is first required is separation. You, the Infinite Being, must separate a little part, capacity, facet of you from you, call it something else, and then search for it. Fun game? Or not?
Funny thing about this reality…we come in knowing we are Infinite, showing up to go again, to dissolve the illusion of separation, to dissipate the judgments and conclusions that are binding up and locking in the fantasies, insanities, and scripts from which this reality operates. But, from the moment we enter, this reality starts the printing process, looping us back into the matrix.
You are this. You are that. You are not this. You are not that. You believe this. That is good. That is bad. That is right. That is wrong. Judgment, judgment, conclusion, judgment, definition, judgment, separation, judgment.
Every judgment, conclusion, decision you align and agree with or resist and react to creates a point of view. The thing about a point of view is that it eliminates the possibility of anything that conflicts with that point of view from showing up for you. So the conclusion that you lack some capacity, aspect, or facet of you, the thing you are seeking in a partner or relationship (to make you whole), that you will not allow to show up, because it conflicts with your points of view, is locking you up, Catch 22.
So, whatever part, capacity, or facet of you that you’ve separated from you, that you are not willing to have, that you are looking for, that you must reject if it does show up because you will not allow yourself to have it or be it, would you be willing to dissolve the barriers you’ve erected in you now?
Once you allow yourself to be yourself, you can have, receive, and be whatever you choose.


The view from my office in Costa Rica

How does it get any better?

I am sitting outside in the café area listening to the sound of the ocean and russian music (I know, it is a rather strange combination).  I love the sound of the surf breaking against the land surf and the russian folk music has always brought me joy.   The air is warm and moist.  All the hotel guests are asleep and only the front desk and security guard seen to be awake.  Yet, this place is full of life and energy.

Have you ever noticed how many beautiful places are on this planet?  I know this for sure:  Right now, this very moment I am in paradise.

Who wants to join me?  And what else is possible when we live life from joy?



Conscious eating

Have you ever stopped for just a moment and asked yourself if you were hungry right before you ate?

For example, you are out with friends who are ordering food and you find yourself ordering a meal, even though you ate just before coming out? Or when you are at work and lunch time comes around, do you automatically go to eat lunch because everyone around you does?

What if in that moment, right before you are about to go on autopilot, you could ask yourself: Do I really require any food right now? Body, are you hungry? And if your body tells you that it is hungry, ask your body is it likes the feeling of hunger. What is the worst that could happen? You can always go eat.

This is something I have been playing with lately and I find that I am not eating nearly as much as I used to. I go into the kitchen thinking that I should eat something, ask my body and leave without consuming anything or just drink water. What if we could honor our body by not making it eat when it was not hungry? How would that change your life and living?

Till next time and thanks for playing.
What contribution can I be to you today?
