Connectivity: Enjoy Conscious Relationships!

Posted by on Mar 20, 2016 in Featured | 0 comments

You know you are authentic when . . . you know you are one with others and all Creation. Are you lonely or do you have many friends? Whether we are introverts or extroverts we are all social beings. We crave connections with others and feel lonely without them. When we open our hearts and let people close, we can enjoy deep, lasting bonds and experience the blessings of oneness. Regardless of the nature of our many varied relationships—parent, child, sibling, lover, friend, business partner, coworker…—they are similar in that we experience a...

Lucidity: Communicate Clearly and Concisely!

Posted by on Mar 19, 2016 in Featured | 0 comments

You know you are authentic when . . . you honestly and distinctly express yourself and share your views. Are you an effective communicator? To get our point across as a transformative teacher, we must be lucid and make sense. We need to clearly and concisely share our message. Unless we can express our ideas in a logical, understandable way, our students will never learn. Then our intentions will never be realized and our efforts to uplift humanity will be in vain. We communicate in many ways—in writing, orally and through creative...

Sincerity – Inspire Others With Your Story!

Posted by on Mar 13, 2016 in Featured | 0 comments

You know you are authentic when . . . you share your personal story of how you found your way. Have you learned the art of spinning a yarn? Over the ages we have learned nearly everything we know through storytelling. Myths and morals have been passed on from generation to generation around campfires long before we had letters, paper or pencils. We tell stories through songs, dance, pictures, poetry and humor. Stories are powerful because they entertain and engage us. They encourage and lift us out of the present into a world where anything...

Reliability: Share Universal Truths!

Posted by on Feb 25, 2016 in Featured | 0 comments

You know you are authentic when . . . you share ideas, not to convince others to believe as you do, but to encourage them to find and follow their own path. If you had the opportunity to choose your own teacher, would you select one who was credible, dependable and available? Teachers play a vital role in our lives. They lead us to truth. Whether we are studying algebra, literature, physics or spirituality, we need a guide who will empower us to recognize and embrace truth. We don’t want to be spoon-fed facts or beliefs because someone...

Virtuosity: Inspire Others with your Brilliance!

Posted by on Feb 24, 2016 in Featured, Potential, Purpose, Teaching, Transformation | 0 comments

You know you are authentic when . . . you are committed to excellence in your field and in sharing your gifts with others. When you think of a virtuoso who comes to mind? The individual could be from any discipline or field of study—the arts, science, technology, medicine… One thing masters have in common is that they are at the top of their game. They not only have exceptional skills and expertise, they share their gifts with the world and truly make a difference. From the moment I first heard Andrea Bocelli, he held the place of honor...

Faculty: Teachers Transform Humanity!

Posted by on Feb 22, 2016 in Empowerment, Featured | 0 comments

You know you are authentic when . . . you share what you have learned to help others on their learning journey. How do you encourage others to become independent, productive members of society? We are all students when focused on self-discovery, but as teachers, as we focus outward and live purposefully. Once we have mastered a skill, instructing others becomes part of our job and part of every major role we fill. We share experiences and what we have learned with others at home, school, work and in the community. Earth is a classroom and...

Liability – Caregivers Face Difficult Decisions!

Posted by on Feb 1, 2016 in caregiving, Featured, Purpose | 0 comments

You know you are authentic when . . . you compassionately tackle the challenges of progressive caregiving. Have you avoided making tough choices while caring for loved ones with advanced needs to avoid confrontation? Are your loved ones at risk because of limitations and need intervention? Caregiving duties increase exponentially when loved ones are no longer able to make good choices, manage their finances or address legal issues. Whether they have declined physically, mentally or emotionally, we may have no option but to intervene. We must...

Accountability: Caregiving is an Honor!

Posted by on Jan 28, 2016 in caregiving, Featured, Purpose | 0 comments

You know you are authentic when . . . you embrace the opportunity to care for others as a privilege. Do you sometimes resent your responsibilities as a caregiver or do you view your role as fulfilling a higher purpose? Do you muddle through or seek assistance when the going gets tough? Caregiving is far more than custodial in nature because our wards—as are we–more than a body with a soul. We are spiritual beings. To be responsible for the health and well-being of another is a privilege. When the Universe places someone’s life in your...

Security: Protect the Vulnerable!

You know you are authentic when . . . you do everything possible to keep dependents safe and help them thrive.   The role of caregiver is challenging not just because it demands so much time and energy, but also because we are responsible for keeping dependents safe and secure. Whether we are caring for children, seniors, patients or disabled individuals, our first priority is to make sure they survive and that their basic biological and physiological needs are addressed. According to Maslow’s hierarchy these include air, food, drink,...

Perceptivity — Increase Effectiveness with Intuition!

Posted by on Jan 16, 2016 in Healing, Intuition | 0 comments

You know you are authentic when . . . you are aware of the needs of those you serve. Do you just assume what others need or are you a keen observer? Do you use your five senses or do you also trust your intuition to determine the best way to care for others? Excellence in caregiving is dependent on knowing what is going on and responding appropriately to the needs of those who depend on us. Whether we are responsible for a child, older person or someone who has physical, mental or emotional issues, we first must be able to identify their...
