Empowering Women

Empowering women is the essence behind the inspirational book F.A.I.T.H. – Finding Answers in the Heart. The first volume of F.A.I.T.H., published in June 2014, has been a resounding success in the United States, Europe, and Canada. The insights the 14 authors received left the readers clamoring for more. But it wasn’t only the readers who were inspired. More women wanted to share their experiences, to be part of the collaborative effort. And thus Volume II came to life, a second collection about love, surrender, forgiveness, and death. Rather than waiting to reveal the book when it’s completed, we’ve decided to share our thoughts along the way and talk about the topics that matter to us, the ones lodged deep in our hearts. The ones that have to do with faith. Because faith is not a conquest. Faith is an inner journey of divine exploration. It’s an understanding between you and Source, an indication of trust that grows with confidence and knowing. And as you grow in confidence and knowing, the more you empower women like yourself. On this journey you’ll meet the 14 authors of Volume II and learn more about their hopes, their losses, their wounds, and their dreams. What makes them worry; what makes them glow. They’ll show you their way out of darkness in the hopes of inspiring you to choose the light. -Nanette, Littlestone,...

Thank You Is Enough!

Thank You Is Enough!

As I reflect on another year of Thanksgiving, I am reminded of the boundless grace freely given to each and every one of us. Just as Eckhart Tolle once said, “if the only prayer you ever say is Thank You, that will be enough.” Thank you for being such an incredible group of supporters. I am always humbled by your love, support and kind words. Since 2007, I have expressed my feelings of gratitude in one of my personal journals. Initially, I would write in this journal sporadically or as I often times said, when the spirit moved me to do so. This year, I have had an ever increasing shift in my perspective and beliefs in all that is and I now have made it a daily practice to write down at least 5 things I am grateful for. This simple exercise has transformed my thoughts from what I don’t have or want in my life to what I do have and want to create in my life. I suddenly experienced first hand how when we shift our thoughts and emotions from the frustrating and negative circumstances in our life to that of gratitude, it effortlessly opens the doorway to a fulfilling and abundant life. In the spirit of thanksgiving, I wanted to share 5 of my favorite gratitude statements from my journal. 1. I am grateful for the strength that I have shown during times of adversity and difficulty for it teaches me how to overcome the next challenge that may present itself. 2. I am grateful for the power that I have within for I now know that it guides my actions and deeds. 3. I am grateful for forgiveness for it renews my spirit and opens my heart to unlimited love and compassion. 4. I am grateful for finally seeing my true value and worth as an independent woman for it reminds me that the best is yet to come. 5. I am grateful for adopting a daily practice of meditation for it allows me to go inward and connect with my all-knowing self and the Divine. I hope my sharing is an inspiration to you as you open your heart and mind to the expression of gratitude this holiday season and hopefully also year round. Thank you is not only enough, YOU are enough. Wishing you a wonderful...

Self-Love & A Valentine’s Day Invitation

Self-Love &  A Valentine’s Day Invitation

As an independent woman, I am often reminded of the importance of self-love as Valentine’s Day approaches each year. In the past, like so many others, it became a season where I felt the pressure of commercialization and the artificial benefits of celebrating Valentine’s Day. Nowadays, I have turned over a new leaf; I have learned that the love that I desired from others was already inside of me. What has given me this new perspective? Well, for once in my life I have realized that my innate creativity and spirituality have allowed me to look deep within myself to see what a beautiful person I truly am. All of us are a divine loving expression of Source. My purpose and passion is to inspire others to uncover this truth for themselves. I believe self-confidence and authentic living are developed when we tap into our creative selves. I wanted to give you a glimpse of one of my collage paintings I produced several years ago. It is appropriately titled “Love”. It helps me to reflect on the love that I felt within as I allowed myself to let go, have fun and create. Finding myself through creativity allowed me to love myself and also see love in others—knowing that it is a reflection of my self-love. To experience this for yourself, this Valentine’s Day I’m inviting you to a Creative Expression Workshop that allows you to tap into your creative center and connect with your heart’s deepest emotion — LOVE. Through guided exercises, you will produce a loving and fun work of art that is yours to keep. Absolutely no art experience required and all art supplies are provided. Reserve your spot here and be sure to share the link with your...
