The Challenge to Live a Phenomenally Miraculous Life

One of my all time favorite quote by Albert Einstein is, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.” 

At first I thought, wow, pretty black and white, Mr. Einstein… What’s wrong with somewhere in the middle? Certainly everything is not a miracle. But over time as I have continued to ponder over the words of this quote, I have been pleasantly surprised at how miraculous our life really is! I then eventually asked myself, what is a miracle anyway? And what, I wondered, was Albert Einstein’s definition of a miracle? Continue reading

The Art of Talking to Yourself by Vironika Tugaleva~ Review and Author Interview

I’m all for healing and personal development. To say the self help and psychology section of a book store is my favorite place in the world…is literally under stating it 🙂 I could be lost in there for hours with the world shut off to me.

Vironika Tugaleva Author of THE ART OF TALKING TO YOURSELF

Vironika Tugaleva Author of THE ART OF TALKING TO YOURSELF

Over the years I’ve read numerous books that promise magic formulas and unrealistic(sometimes drastic!) ways to attain happiness and success. The Art of Talking to Yourself by Vironika Tugaleva is NOT one of those books. And I’m so glad it isn’t!

Its raw and real.

This is a book which invites you to look within and find the Light within. Vironika guides you to become a beautifully healed version of yourself all through self mastery and loving self talk. She gently teaches you to tap into your own inner wisdom, your light which doesn’t require another expensive course to attain happiness and peace.

Her take on this whole self help business is so refreshing, I wanted to hug her for her honesty and pure spirit. Continue reading

5 Positive Ways You NEED to Be Humble for more Happiness

“We must not be wise and prudent according to the flesh. Rather, we must be simple, humble and pure.” ~ Francis of Assisi

In our modern society, full of corporate power and stardom, being humble, being modest is often viewed as a weakness.  And the funny part is, we celebrate entitlement and elitist behavior in the name of social norm.

What hope do we have as a society if we celebrate over confidence and elitist attitudes? Where is the spiritual growth in that? Aren’t we all getting rather materialistic?

This is the reason being humble is such a deep necessity for our society at large. But can we go change every person on this planet? NO! That’s literally impossible…so then what? Do we go on living the same way? Can we really find happiness in this cesspool of over indulgence? Continue reading

“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.”― Gandhi

We are all chasing happiness is some form. Be it in the form of money, health, fame, love….We all live with the misconception that happiness can be achieved by possession of the things we hold so dear to our heart. Is that really true?? Continue reading

10 Loving Ways to Add Happiness to your Relationships


“Let your love be like the misty rains, coming softly, but flooding the river.” ~Malagasy Proverb

After receiving countless lovely emails and messages regarding different kinds of relationships and the problems in them, this is the article I wrote, which attempts to answer almost all of those queries. 

One of my friends recently gave me an article about happiness that asked the question, “How happy can we be?” Pretty darn happy if I’m in love, you might say. But according to psychologists, about 50 percent of our happiness is determined by our genes, and amazingly only about 10 percent has to do with our actual circumstances. The other 40 percent has to do with what we do to counteract a seemingly natural tendency for us to stay at or around what we psychologists term our “set point” or “base line.”

In other words people tend to reach a goal, whether it be finding love, getting married, or making more money and feel a surge of happiness for a while, only to soon adapt back down to their “set point.” Continue reading
