The First Step In Our Journey: Releasing Fear

In my last post, I talked about the Art of Transformation and the miracles in store for us, but how do we go about starting the process of change? Every journey requires a first step. I think the best analogy I can offer is to imagine yourself as a huge, beautiful sailboat. You’re docked safely

Unconditional Love—You Do Deserve It!

Unconditional love can be defined simply as love without any conditions or limitations. This type of love can come to us in many forms: through a wonderful soul-mate relationship, from our family and friends, and even from our small furry friends . . . our pets!
