Enlightened Living is a Life without Struggle


Enlightened Living

Here is a way to to end the cycle of suffering and finally feel at peace, regardless of the size of your "to do" list.

I suspect that you have a vision for your life. Almost everyone holds an ideal for how they wish their life would play out and no one’s ideal life includes feelings of burn out, resent, or a lack of time off. Desiring to live according to your values shouldn’t be a an exhausting or self-neglecting experience.

The vision you hold for your life is possible to achieve. And calling it forth does not have to feel like a struggle. A revolution from the inside out is all that is required to move you forward without compromise.

You have a right to live a drama-free life …so why have you suffered so?

Allow your search for calm to become a deeply satisfying and enjoyable journey. Now is the moment of truth. Now is the time you can afford yourself to truly be fulfilled. Right now as you read this.
Not only are you free in this moment to release yourself from past patterns that have sabotaged your own peace of mind, but you can access the wisest, most intuitive, and inspired parts of yourself, as well.

Imagine living a more leisurely life, enjoying the simple pleasures that having more time can bring.

Can you imagine how different your life would be if you could get things done on your “to do” list in a timely fashion, change old behavior patterns that sabotage your authentic happiness, and had more time to enjoy sharing with friends and family?

Perhaps you would:

  1. Feel more motivated to embody your best self and live your best life
  2. Experience deep nourishment and self-acceptance
  3. Breathe a huge sigh of relief because the struggle you were so afraid would never go away has suddenly, totally and forever lifted.
  4. Find that financial strain, stress and overwhelm dissolve, and you feel deeply secure, protected and at ease.
  5. Experience profound and lasting happiness, because the colors and textures in your life suddenly seem more vibrant, the light within you more radiant, and daily life is suddenly more relaxed fulfilling!
  6. Relish the little things in life like the color of flowers, the stars at night, lingering sunsets, and the gift of someone smiling at you for no reason at all.
  7. Witness more magic, gratitude and excitement in your daily life.

These are the many and wonderful realities you can experience right now. All it takes is the conviction to declare that, “I am ready for a change. I am open to learning how to think and behave differently so that I can create a different outcome than I have right now.”

In taking this stand, you reclaim your power to create the life you deserve to have. If you are willing to make this commitment to yourself, I am ready to help you bring it to fruition. I can guide you step-by-step through the process of inner transformation that will ensure you create the life you want to live.

I can provide you with the tools you need to:

  1. Release past patterns that have kept you from creating healthy patterns of self- care in your day to day life.
  2. Create an extraordinary life as the foundation for attracting extraordinary people and opportunities to you.
  3. Learn to fully receive and welcome a fulfilling lifestyle without letting the past create limitations on your future.

Although I rarely believe one’s past to be a useful reference point in which to explain present life circumstances, I share a bit of my own life story to demonstrate that my own transformations are not only the result of advanced degrees in psychology but reflect the personal insights obtained as a result of painful for valuable life experiences.

I know that if I can transcend the fallout of family dysfunction and personal adversities, then you surely can too! it simply requires knowing how to release yourself from the tyrannies of your past and the conclusions that you drew about yourself and the world as a result of that past.

I had a bipolar and schizophrenic mother and a charismatic and charming 3-pack a day cigarette smoking, womanizing, compulsive gambler for a father. My two siblings and I attended over a dozen schools before we graduated from high school because when my father had bad debts we left town and when my mother was hospitalized in a mental ward, we were panned out to friends or family. I was caught in a self-destructive cycle from the age of eleven. The more insecure I felt, the more self-judgment I felt and the more I judged myself, the more inadequate I felt, and thus, the more insecure I would end up feeling.

I endured the hardships of mental illness in not only my mother, but also in my aunt and my grandmother, which made me quite nervous about my own future, especially when my aunt committed suicide. I concluded that life was a struggle and that I would have to work hard to crawl out of the poverty my mother endured as a single mother with three kids receiving food stamps despite her 50 plus hour a week job receiving minimum wage. That belief inspired me to go back to school despite the fact that I had to take out school loans to pay that education, which was quite scary.

As all children do, I felt responsible for the dissolution of my family so to handle my own feelings of inadequacy, I relied on facades to ensure that no one would ever know how truly vulnerable and afraid I was to have no sense of security that I could I rely on. I never longed to have a house with a family or a white picket fence. I longed for peace of mind. But the borrowed knowledge of self-help books did not result in behavior change so I set out on a trip around the world.

I was hell bent on finding healthy role models to teach me how to live without feelings of shame or blame. I was tired of feeling like a victim and set out to discover how I might develop my strengths. It was only through years of travels to exotic countries, learning to meditate at the Rajneesh International Meditation University in India, interviews for my research on enlightenment, learning hypnosis skills, living with friends in alternative communities, that I came to realize that my longing to be free of my neurosis, to be “fixed” and to be “free,” stemmed from my inability to accept myself, or, more precisely, my vulnerabilities and feelings of inadequacy.

At a certain point in my own evolution, I discovered that my identification as a “seeker” was an obstacle to my actually “finding” what I was looking for: true peace of mind and a life and career that stemmed out of creativity. As soon as I abandoned my search, I began to appreciate the grace of the present and that relaxation within permanently and effortlessly changed the quality of my personal and professional life.
