Our Addiction to being a Victim <<< the Karpman Drama Triangle

I recently read a blog by one of my favorite teachers, Melody Beattie.* We also use her work in my school, The S.W.A.T. Institute. Melody had asked a fellow therapist "what the one thing was that hallmarked the unhappy state of being many of us have come to label as codependency." “It’s the Karpman Drama [...]

I am safe. My body is safe. My future is safe.

I have to tell you that over the past six months, I have reawakened! It all began with a new Facebook group I created called "Simply...Woman! Love Your Body, Love Your Life". I had no idea where it would take me! Huge! Incredible! Life-saving! In fact, I have gained so much more than the twenty-five [...]

Why diets don’t work << blah blah >> and why my video just had over 28,000 views in two days!

Sometimes we just need to hear it straight. No BS. No exaggerating. No making promises of ridiculous claims and unheard of results.

Why God Created Us? And Why ‘We’ Created the Big Bang?

I won’t lie: Life has not been easy for me. At times it’s been a fall-down, all-out, battle. But I think those of us who are ‘strong’ will agree, it is because of our struggles that we’ve garnered our wings of wisdom and learned to fly. In my case, all my struggles helped me understand [...]

Why God Allows Evil to Exist

We’ve all heard the statements that condemn God for allowing suffering, sadness, evil and oppression to exist in this world. But the fact is, duality is the spectrum of life. It is our ability to choose the Light that expands consciousness and empowers us! The necessity of choice is why all our religious texts insist [...]

We’re Sending 100 Women To School

Holy Moly >>> we’ve had the coldest month in forty years. And I spent most of it snuggled in bed, working on my laptop, healing from a bad chest cold.
