Coming Soon – I’ve been busy writing a book about my story with tips for healing. Watch for updates in future blogs!

Above is the cover for my book that will be available soon on Amazon. The book is my story of healing. I will let you know as soon as the book hits the site.

Last week we celebrated a total eclipse of the sun. Did you know that this is a time of renewal and new beginnings? Of letting go of the past and moving into new ideas and physical situations? Of releasing? Let this be your time to let go and move forward.

In addition to my regular classes this month I will be teaching a chair yoga class at Beaumont’s Survive and Thrive – the 18th Annual Breast Cancer Symposium called Sharing is Caring. For info on this great event, click here:

Recently I’ve been thinking about meditation and affirmations. Like many of us, I try daily to spend time in stillness and quiet space, to come face to face with my own personal spirit or spirituality. I believe it helps to read inspirational pieces and I saw a Facebook post a few days ago that made me feel inspired. It included many affirmations, including those below:


Pick one or two of these and practice mentally saying it over and over again. Believe in it, believe in yourself.

I am conquering my illness;

I am defeating it steadily each day.

My obstacles are moving out of my way;

my path is carved towards greatness.

I wake up today with strength in my heart and clarity in my mind.

My fears of tomorrow are simply melting away.

My life is just beginning.

I am blessed with an incredible family and wonderful friends.

I acknowledge my own self-worth;

my confidence is soaring.

Everything that is happening now is happening for my ultimate good.

I am a powerhouse;

I am indestructible.

Though these times are difficult,

they are only a short phase of life.

My future is an ideal projection of what I envision now.

I radiate beauty, charm, and grace.

I am guided in my every step by Spirit who leads me towards what I must know and do.

(If you’re married) My marriage is becoming stronger, deeper, and more stable each day.

I possess the qualities needed to be extremely successful.

(For business owners) My business is growing, expanding, and thriving.

Creative energy surges through me and leads me to new and brilliant ideas.

Happiness is a choice.

I base my happiness on my own accomplishments and the blessings I’ve been given.

My ability to conquer my challenges is limitless;

my potential to succeed is infinite.

(For those who are unemployed) I deserve to be employed and paid well for my time, efforts, and ideas.

Each day, I am closer to finding the perfect job for me.

I am courageous and I stand up for myself.

My thoughts are filled with positivity and my life is plentiful with prosperity.

Today, I abandon my old habits and take up new, more positive ones.

I am the architect of my life;

I build its foundation and choose its contents.

Today, I am brimming with energy and overflowing with joy.

My body is healthy; my mind is brilliant;

my soul is tranquil.

I am superior to negative thoughts and low actions.

I have been given endless talents which I begin to utilize today.

I forgive those who have harmed me in my past and peacefully detach from them.

A river of compassion washes away my anger and replaces it with love.
