Are You In Control? How to Take Charge of Your Life and Destiny

Do you feel your life is basically in control or out of control? And how much control do you actually have over your life?

These are essential questions. And to respond intelligently, one needs to take into account some important considerations, which we will now examine.

What Areas Can You Control?

Here are some areas that you can control, at least to a certain extent. You can say that you are in control of your…

Negative Control

Some people veer toward being too lax, without boundaries or attention. This lack of awareness can lead to negligence and destruction.

Everyone wants a strong, healthy body. How about a strong, healthy mind?

This subject is particularly important with the rise in Alzheimer’s disease cases. With more people being affected, there is an urgent need to fortify the brain.

Also …

The Three Lines of Transformational Personal and Spiritual Development

The Three Lines of Development

Our answers to the age-old questions – “Who am I?” “Why am I here?” and “Where am I going?” – form the foundation of our lives. It makes sense. Your perspectives on who you are, why you are here, and where you are going become your reality. These questions also define three lines of transformational personal and spiritual development.

Each of us is unique, as are our responses to these age-old questions.

As we evolve, our perspectives evolve.

It’s a beautiful journey and reflecting on these questions can open doors for a miraculous transformation we call “The Ultimate Paradigm Shift.”

In the Moment: Do Your Best

The moment passes quickly.
Catch it before it passes; it will not last.
Until the next moment appears …

Actually, you can’t catch the moment.

for future use and enrichment, and have it
be more a part of yourself.

What can you do with each moment?
Experience it,
Appreciate it,
Use it.

In the end, you can only do your best
participating in the many moments
that make up your life.

In the Zone: Where It Happens


Being in the zone… remember the thrill of being fully engaged in something that intrigues and enlivens you, sparks your creativity and problem-solving?

It might be singing or dancing, writing or videotaping, healing or coaching, or the wonder of playing with a child or pet.

four-ways-toget-inBut lifting yourself into the zone is part of a joyous life, the place where so much is unknown, exciting and possible. Here are four fun ways to get  there:

1. Dream and live your dream.

There is a magic in thinking big. You may have a dream of a better world: social justice, racial and sexual equality, a protected environment and more. To find a way to contribute, consider your talents, skills and interests. Therein lies the key to making a difference.

One lady we coached wanted a world that had a more functional medical system. This inspired her to pursue energy work to follow her heart and make the world a healthier place.

How to Create Your Destiny

the woman keeps in hand globe on background sky.What is your destiny and how can you create it?

We view destiny as making empowering choices to realize your brightest future.

It’s not fixed or pre-destined. Destiny is about choosing to thrive more than just survive. Your destiny emerges from following your deeper desires and heartfelt impulses.

Yes, there are influences: karma (past actions), genetics, environment and ancestry. As biologist Bruce Lipton has pointed out, however, your beliefs directly affect your DNA and genes.

William Wallace noted,  “Every man dies. Not every man really lives.”

You can author your life. In effect, you become your own director with
