Going the Distance
December 26, 2014
Going the DistanceWhen life became complex, stressful and downright overwhelming during the past eight months thanks to a cross-country move and my 90-year-old Mom’s transition to assisted living, I was given copious opportunity to re-test many of my past failed coping mechanisms: worrying, working non-stop, overeating less than optimal foods, despairing and becoming resentful and angry. Surprise, surprise (NOT), they still didn’t work! Click here to read more


Using Goals to Focus Your Energy
December 19, 2014
Using Goals to Focus Your EnergyToday we’re going to talk about the roles of potential and kinetic energy in setting and achieving our life goals. Potential energy is energy that has yet to be activated. It is present everywhere and in everything, a reservoir of opportunity filled with endless possibilities. Kinetic energy is energy in action. A person walking down the street or a car moving down the road. We transform here to read more


Shifting From Ordinary to Extraordinary
December 12, 2014
Shifting From Ordinary to ExtraordinaryWe all crave excellence, but sometimes our BIG ideas can seem unattainable. That’s when we need to remember the power of incremental baby steps. The continuous improvement formula for excellence is simple:Choose something that is (or used to be) popular. Add a splash of something new. You’ve got an appealing new option based on your fresh twist! If something is too different, we may here to read more


Live For What Lights You Up
December 5, 2014
Live For What Lights You UpDo you know what really lights you up? For each one of us, there are pursuits, projects and passions about which we feel excited and alive. Parenting, gardening, healing, public speaking, coaching, painting, sales, travel, music and so many more. The possibilities for joy are myriad. The key to enjoying life and experiencing to its fullest is to figure out what lights you up and invest yourself fully—click here to read more


Pay Attention To Your Daydreams
November 28, 2014
Pay Attention To Your DaydreamsYour mind is a super-computer perpetually searching for patterns and evaluating the world around you. Many of your thoughts are practical ones focused here and now. But when you let yourself drift from the concrete into the realm of possibilities, big breakthroughs happen. Click here to read more

Embracing Change
November 21, 2014
Embrace ChangeEver had a difficult decision to make and, instead of trusting your instincts, you analyzed, contemplated, researched and pondered until you felt so paralyzed with uncertainty and doubt that you couldn't take any action at all? Instead of choosing to remain stuck and live as a victim of circumstance, consider embracing the power of loving yourself unconditionally. Identify your fears, respect them, demonstrate here to read more


Attitude is Everything
November 14, 2014
Attitude is EverythingHave you ever known someone who seemed to be born with all the advantages—money, status, intelligence, opportunity—but floundered and ricocheted through life in a constant state of frustration, lack and misery? Have you ever known someone who appeared to be born with a ton of limitations—poverty, abandonment, academic challenges, maybe even a few run-ins with the law—but transcended it all to live happily and gratefully?

The Science of Hugs: Nature's Tranquility Booster
November 7, 2014
The Science of Hugs: Nature's Tranquility BoosterScientists, doctors and moms tell us that we should receive at least three hugs a day. While we may know that the perfect hug, delivered at the optimal time by the right person (or anytime by anyone, if you’re a “hugger” by nature), can feel good, there’s considerable science behind the deeper benefits that has everything to do with the electro-chemical marvel of being in human form.

BOO! Time to Step Into Your Greatness!
October 31, 2014
BOO! Time to Step Into Your GreatnessFacing your fears can be beneficial! During my recovery from burnout, I discovered that recognizing, respecting, exploring, embracing and feeling my fears was an essential step in helping me restore wholeness by becoming better at loving myself unconditionally. My first big realization on the road to recovery was that my utter and complete burnout was clear evidence that I had not been loving myself. Click here to read more

Anger is Not a Four-Letter Word
October 24, 2014
Anger is Not a Four-Letter WordHaving posted recently on the power of kindness, today's post is rather ironic. Because it's about dealing with anger and frustration. And it's long overdue. Last April, my husband and I contracted to build a home in Virginia. Having been promised the house would be completed by the end of August, we sold our Colorado home quickly and relocated to Virginia at the end of August via a 25-hour road trip here to read more

Oprah and Deepak FREE “Energy of Attraction” Online Meditation Program Launching 11/3/14
October 17, 2014
Oprah and Deepak FREE “Energy of Attraction” Online Meditation Program Launching 11/3/14A well-known Teacher once said, “I have so much to do today—if I hope to accomplish everything on my list, I must meditate twice as long.” Most of us are more likely to say, “I have so much to do today, there’s no way I have time for meditation or anything else!” I used to say that myself until I figured out that I have all the here to read more

Every Kindness Counts
October 10, 2014
Every Kindness CountsHave you ever thought about doing something kind for someone, then filed that thought away for later, only to forget about it completely? Have you ever thought about doing something kind and did it right away? What was the result? Chances are, you made that person’s day and your day as well. You can never know the full effects of your acts of kindness and generosity and how their ripples will continue to constructively...Click here to read more

Obstacle or Opportunity: The Mindset Scan
October 3, 2014
Obstacle or Opportunity: The Mindset ScanHere’s the secret of people who thrive, whatever their circumstances: they know that obstacles are fear-fueled illusions. Whenever they encounter a person or situation that appears to offer an obstacle, challenge or problem, they shift their perspective and reclaim their power by aligning their energy with pure love and demonstrating curiosity. In so doing, they transcend any troublesome here to read more

When You Dream Big, You Plant the Seeds of OUR Future!
September 26, 2014
When You Dream Big, You Plant the Seeds of OUR Future!When the Wright brothers first dreamed of flying, they were told it couldn’t be done. Many had tried and failed. For two men who didn’t even have high school diplomas, creating a “flying machine” was indeed a very big dream. If the Wright brothers had listened to the voice of reason—endlessly embodied by the many pragmatists surrounding them—they would never have gotten off the ground. Click here to read more

Optimizing Your Response Ability: The Equanimity Scan
September 19, 2014
Optimizing Your Response Ability: The Equanimity ScanIn this life, the only thing for which you have complete responsibility and over which you have complete control  is your chosen perspective and response. All other forms of control are illusions, at best. Yet, despite our best efforts, any of us can become anxious and irritated when overwhelmed by stress and ancient self-destructive scripts. Reinforced by “gremlins”—those here to read more

Living Your Authentic Life Without Regret
September 12, 2014
Living Your Authentic Life Without RegretIn her best-selling book, The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, Hay House author Bronnie Ware says the number one regret reported by those she attended as a hospice nurse is, “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” Why are we so reluctant to allow ourselves to be who we fully came here to be? It seems foolhardy to try to be here to read more

Self Care Isn't Selfish: The Sensory Balance Scan
September 5, 2014
Self-Care Isn’t Selfish: The Sensory Balance ScanIn our busy lives, we can fall into the habit of taking care of everyone and everything else before we take care of ourselves. When we focus first on taking care of our careers and homes, our friends, loved ones, clients and bosses, our own needs can fall to the bottom (or completely off) of our “to do” lists. Though we become more and more irritated, exhausted and disillusioned by here to read more

The Labor of Love
August 29, 2014
The Labor of LoveAs Labor Day approaches, I encountered this poster and it brought to mind one of the favorite maxims of my British-born great-grandmother, Jane Adams, “Pray as if everything depends on God. Work as if everything depends on you.” Granny lived her pray/work maxim with every fiber of her being. She was a woman of great faith AND she was a hard worker. After her church organist husband ran off with her best here to read more

Lighten Your Load: The Core Energy Scan
August 22, 2014

Lighten Your Load: The Core Energy ScanGetting the blues occasionally is common. I know first-hand how debilitating long-term discouragement can become if left unchecked, having suffered multiple episodes of depression in my lifetime. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world’s largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a here to read more

No Such Thing As Good Luck
August 15, 2014
No Such Thing As Good LuckMerriam-Webster defines “luck” as “the things that happen to a person because of chance: the accidental way things happen without being planned.” This definition is one of the reasons I avoid using the term. I don’t believe in good luck available to the few. I believe endless good fortune freely accessible to all. Our Divine Source is excellent, limitless and reliable. No external force can block our highest good. Click here to read more

Why Playing It Safe Isn’t Safe At All: The Flow Scan
August 8, 2014
Why Playing It Safe Isn’t Safe At All: The Flow ScanMany of us think if we dare to try something new or take a risk in order to expand or improve our lives, we won’t make life better, we’ll make it more difficult. We tell ourselves it’s easier to stick with the status quo because it’s predictable. Our preference for the familiar is so strong, it’s actually cited as one of the most common reasons people chose to stay in dysfunctional—Click here to read more

Turning Unexplored Possibilities Into Fulfilling Realities
August 1, 2014

Turning Unexplored Possibilities Into Fulfilling RealitiesMany pursue an education to gain knowledge. But knowledge alone isn’t all that useful. It’s when we apply what we have learned that it becomes most valuable. Think about all the things you know, but haven’t put into action. The great aim of education is not to amass vast quantities of information; it’s to take what we know and use it to shape our lives and impact the lives of here to read more

Daring Greatly
July25, 2014
Daring GreatlyCreativity, curiosity and courage are at the root of all freedom. It takes creativity to dream big, curiosity to explore how it might manifest and courage to keeping moving forward–despite your past experience, your current circumstances or the number of naysayers in your life. Once you’ve envisioned your desired future and crafted a plan for getting there, it takes tremendous courage to stay the course no matter what. Click here to read more

Embracing Uncertainty with Enthusiasm
In life, bridges connect us to the future. They provide passage to new discoveries, relationships and opportunities.But crossing a bridge means making a change and change is sometimes uncomfortable. We’re torn between staying where we are and moving forward into the unknown. And often, when given the option to turn back to what is familiar—no matter how uncomfortable or restricting—our desire here to read more

Your Daily Dose of Motivation
July 11, 2014
Your Daily Dose of MotivationWhen was the last time you took a shower? We don’t tend to think that the benefits of one shower will last a month or a lifetime. But we do tend to think that way when it comes to motivation. Like a nice hot shower, motivation invigorates and inspires. But it’s not something you do once and then you’re done. You don’t ‘get’ motivated and ‘stay’ motivated. Click here to read more

Declare Your Independence from Limitation and Lack
July 4, 2014
Declare Your Independence from Limitation and LackToo many of us limit ourselves by perceiving our past circumstances and experiences as the ultimate predictors of our future success. Maybe you believe, because you didn’t get a formal education, you aren’t smart enough to excel. Or because your family didn’t have money when you were growing up, you’ll never be prosperous. Or here to read more

Here's Looking at You, Kid!

Here's Looking at You, Kid!
Ever get discouraged and feel like you just can’t count on others? You’re not alone. It’s very common for us to look outside ourselves for approval, acceptance and love. It’s equally common to discover that what we seek can’t be found outside ourselves. What we are seeking is only found by looking within. It all starts with you—your relationship with yourself. When you are an unconditionally loving and here to read more

The Nurture of Nature
Do you ever make yourself crazy with non-stop hustle and bustle? Too many rounds on the hamster wheel with no break? Between consuming the media, meeting daily deadlines and managing a life filled with concrete, cars and creditors, it’s amazing that any of us stay sane. Click here to read more

Only You
June 13, 2014
Only You
We sometimes think we can’t make an impact unless we have a lot of influence or money. And so we put off doing anything–even the smallest act—because we think it can’t possibly make a difference unless it’s big. In those moments we forget that every action matters, no matter how small. In fact, it’s often the seemingly tiny contributions that change others’ lives in the most dramatic ways. Click here to read more

True Prosperity
June 6, 2014
True Prosperity
Sometimes, success can be lonely. Just read the biography of any business baron who died rich and friendless. Indeed, there is a difference between achieving success in a selfish effort to serve oneself and achieving success while dedicated to the service of others. True success and value come when we take our eyes off ourselves and focus on the benefit of others. Think about the people you know who enrich the lives here to read more

Success is a Journey, Not a Destination
May 30, 2014
Success is a Journey, Not a DestinationThere’s a mystique around “being successful.” When you look at people who are achieving their goals and contributing fully to the world around them, it’s tempting to believe a secret superpower is responsible. Or that there’s some kind of “success gene” at work that passed you by. Success isn’t one big life-changing moment. We have grown accustomed to seeing movies and reading articles here to read more

You ARE the One

You ARE the One
Have you ever known what you wanted to do, but felt that you needed the blessing of others before you could speak up or step forward and do it? Such a need for external validation is quite common. Stepping out on your own can be scary, which is why we don’t do it more often. Good news: your personal tribe is waiting for you to show up fully and lead. You don’t have to have the perfect answer, you just have to here to read more

Listen Up
May 9, 2014
by guest blogger, Kate Steinbacher of Coaches Console
Listen UpOne of the most important skills to develop in life is the ability to listen. Listening is not only about the words, but also about meanings spoken and not spoken, the tone of the voice, the speed with which people express themselves, the breathing patterns and the volume and words that are chosen. Each aspect brings something to the table of understanding and learning. Becoming a good listener here to read more

Start Where You Are

Start Where You AreTired of sabotaging yourself through the perfectionistic practice of setting the bar too high? You’ll treasure the insightful relief to be found in this post.

The Mental and Emotional Keys to Lasting Weight Loss and Body Confidence
April 25, 2014
The Mental and Emotional Keys to Lasting Weight Loss and Body ConfidendeIf you ask the average woman on the street how she feels about her weight, you’re likely to receive a scowl, both for how she feels about her weight and for how she feels about you for asking. For many women, thinking about their weight and their bodies is an uncomfortable and emotional issue. Society puts a great deal of pressure on women to look good and be fit. Diet and exercise programs abound!
Lots of frustrated women are on a constant roller coaster ride of one diet after another, trying to find the magical solution. With all the pressure and all the programs, why is it that in the United States alone, two-thirds of all women are overweight, with half of them categorized as obese? Click here to read more

Turning Unexplored Possibilities Into Fulfilling Realities
April 4, 2014
Turning Unexplored Possibilities Into Fulfilling RealitiesWhen we were in school, most of us encountered word problems in math class. The first step in solving the problem was to clarify what it was really asking. Only then could we calculate the answer. It turns out that solving problems in life is a lot like solving word problems in school. It goes a whole lot better when we start by clarifying what the problem is really about.

Relax, Become Curious and Let the Possibilities Percolate
We received a typical heavy, wet, Colorado spring snowstorm last night. The wild grasses that stood 8 to 32 feet tall in my yard are now drooping on the ground in big clumps. While this may result in some of the fronds breaking because they just aren’t flexible enough to bend without cracking under the added weight, most will spring back into the air and stand tall once the snow melts.

Spring Into Action: The World Needs You

Spring Into Action the World Needs YouThough in my home state of Colorado, USA, March can be the snowiest month, I remind myself daily that spring is just around the corner.

Our lives follow similar “seasonal” cycles of dormancy, new growth, profusion and harvest. However, sometimes...Click here to read more

What's Love Got to do with Business?An excerpt from Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life! by Deborah Jane Wells.

Suffering From Burnout? Love is the Cure!
January 24, 2014
Suffering from Burnout? Love is the Cure!An excerpt from "Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life!" by Deborah Jane Wells. My first big realization on the road to recovery was that my utter and complete burnout was clear evidence that I had not been loving myself. I was not nurturing, encouraging or motivating myself in healthy ways physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually. I was disrespecting my body, mind, feelings, and values. Working myself nearly to death with no regard for illness or despair. If I had treated another being that way, human or feline, I would have been jailed long ago. Click here to read more

“I gained so much from Deborah’s power-packed Reiki course. The materials were well thought out and easy to follow. Deborah’s approach made the learning, attunement and practice flow naturally.”

When you fall in love with yourself,
everything else finally falls into place,
with beauty, power, and grace.
When you release the illusion of fear
and embrace the truth of love,
you will know in each moment
who you are and Whose you are.
That, my dear friends,
is more than enough.
It is everything.
