Be Careful What You Get Inspired By

I love to read. Always have. I’m sure always will.   I love to watch tv, movies, and documentaries (oh, and let’s not forget The Bachelor! ;) ). Sometimes maybe a little too much.   But it’s the stories that I love.   Through books, tv, movies, and a variety of other platforms, there’s always stories being told. People have things to say. People have stories to share.   BUT…   We need to be careful what we get inspired by.   Are you inspired by triumph over struggle? Do you praise the person who succeeds through dogged hard work? Do you admire those who sacrifice themselves for others? Do you applaud those who strive and push their way to success?   It’s not unusual if you do. We’ve been trained to respect and commend these gripping feats of achievement. We’ve been led to believe that…   struggle equals value hardship equals honor adversity equals worth suffering equals meaning   Sure, we certainly can – and do – learn, grow, and evolve through pain and struggle. And I absolutely am not taking away the compassion and empathy we have...

Your Life Gets to Be More than it is Right Now

With all the awful, gloomy and scary things that go on in the world, it’s hard to believe that we are meant to have outrageously good lives.   …but we are.   We just need to be reminded…repetitively.   And that’s what I plan to do.  Remind you, convince you, assure you, persuade you, prompt you…whatever it takes.   Because we didn’t come here to settle, we didn’t come here to live in fear, we didn’t come here to coast, we didn’t come here to pass time.   We came here to engage, experience and participate…with all the good stuff.   And the cool part?  When we do this we also begin to transform the energy of the entire planet…that’s seriously how powerful we are.  But it starts with you.   It’s true.  You get to have it all.   By divine inheritance you get to be amazingly abundant, vibrantly healthy, gratifyingly successful, deeply loved, and joyfully fulfilled….but more importantly, as you enjoy all of these things, you also get to have the profound peace,...

Day 25 No Striving Challenge – You Have Soul Support

We’ve been misled into mistaken thinking, by buying into the belief we need to work hard, struggle, and make things happen, because we’re doing this on our own.   The crux of what keeps us striving is…we’ve forgotten that we have help; that we’re NOT in this on our own.   Not only do we have a team of non-physical beings (I call them my SOUL TEAM – made up of your Higher Self, deceased loved ones, angels, spirit guides, and Ascended Masters...

Day 6 No Striving Challenge – 4 Common Behaviors of Striving

In our quest for proving our value and worthiness we often get caught in one, if not all, of the common behaviors of striving. These behaviors are established with the underlying desire to get our emotional needs met, because at some level we feel a void.   But what these behaviors really accomplish is keeping us trapped in striving for something that is outside of ourselves.   4 Common Behaviors of Striving: Perfectionism People Pleasing Over-Analyzing Over-Achieving   Over time, more and more aspects of these behaviors dropped away for me. Sometimes, however, I met the releasing of them with a lot of resistance….and that was my indicator that it definitely was time to let them go.   When resistance kicks in, that is a really good sign that you are ready to let go of the behaviors that haven’t been serving you. Be warned - as what you no longer need rises to the surface, your ego mind gets louder!   Soul Team Chat What in your life feels like it is no longer serving you? Are you getting mind chatter around...

Tea Time with Trish: Is Having a Good Life Holding You Back?

I have a good life.  I always have.  Yet, for many years I was not happy.  It didn’t add up.  A good life should equal a happy life right?  Well, in reality that’s not always the case. A large part of the reason that this is not the case is because we have been mislead to believe what makes a good life – get a job/career, find a guy,  get married, then a house, next comes kids…  There is a very logical order for our good life to unfold. Now of course, these things all do definitely make for a good life…I know that having these things in my life have truly been part of the joy I enjoy in my life.  However, clearly they were not the only factor in creating my happiness, because for many years I struggled with feeling like something was still missing.  And in talking to other moms, I hear similar stories. So, what’s this missing piece? Fact is, no matter...
