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. That's what I did the other night during a live Facebook chat where I explained why dieting is bullshit; New Year's resolutions suck, and why you're sabotaging. I told the truth. I'm not [...]

Christmas Shopping Represents Your Life

I was at Winner's the other day doing a little Christmas shopping when a stranger came up to me and told me she 'loved how quickly I made decisions.' I laughed, wondering why a stranger was paying attention to how I chose my purchases. She went on: "I just watched you walk down the aisle, [...]

Here’s what just landed me on Oprah.com!

They say necessity is the mother of invention—it’s when the need for something becomes so necessary that you are forced to find ways of creating it. This is my truth. This is why I created “The Emotional Edge: 12-Week TeleCourse”. And although I’d love to say I developed it purely for my desire and passion [...]

Black Women, White Women, Indian Women, Latino Women, Asian Women….all women!

Today, I sat looking at the photos of all the women in our private Facebook group who are participating in one of my courses at The S.W.A.T. Institute. Women from so many different countries: White Women, Black Women, Indian Women, Asian Women, Latino Women – women from Denmark, Romania, Slovenia, Australia, New Zealand, the list [...]

Who wants to help strangers, when it’s your problems you need help with?

For many many years, I focused all my energy into helping strangers. I helped women, many whom I didn’t know, because it made me feel better about myself and my own life. But the truth is, helping others also helped me avoid dealing with my own problems! My family and intimate relationship were always the biggest source [...]

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. Between watching every episode of "Orange is the New Black" and then diving into “The Good Wife” series on NetFlix, I’ve certainly got my fill [...]
