My vision is a world where conflict is communicated and used to stimulate personal freedom and expression for all mankind. My mandate is to reduce conflict using love as my primary tool. My life's work is to learn and then share my learning with others. I am supported by a wonderful loving husband named Pedro, a loving family and many friends. I derive income from helping my clients build and protect their wealth as a financial planner and occasionally from spiritual fitness coaching and speaking engagements.

Gently forth go I…

Each day, relentlessly there is some dire situation around the world that overshadows us. It is sometimes labelled as politics but in general often coalesces around our spiritual philosophies which when defined by rules can also be called our religion. Some religions cannot seem to escape violence and aggression. The two which immediately spring to…

A picture perfect life…

If a picture paints a thousand words then what is the story of this one? I love this picture because for me it represents the best perspective on our lives. In the background is a house. It is not a new house. It is not a stereotypically beautiful house. It is just an old house…

Life in the face of death…

I had not written anything for a couple of weeks and decided to ask my husband what to write. He gave me the subject and then said: “get to it”. Since my husband’s first language is Spanish and my first language is English I thought maybe I had lost something in translation, but in reality…

A step in the right direction…

Have you reached the pyramid of success in your life? I believe we can and in fact even when we have there is always another bigger pyramid to build…just ask the ancient Egyptians. So presuming that we can, the question becomes how. The answer may surprise you. We need to concentrate on who we are…

Celebrating creation

Starlight, star bright, every star I see tonight. I wish I may. I wish I might. Celebrate your birth tonight! We live in a marvelous, miraculous, mysterious place and its creation is worth celebrating. The worlds religions (ancient, modern and most probably in the future) create a set of cohesive reasons of the the cause, nature,…

Creating a Christmas I love to live

Beyond the songs, the shopping and the spiritual rituals there are as many different meanings to Christmas as there are those of us doing the interpreting. I have met many people who are Muslims, Jews, Sikhs, Hindus, Bhuddists and others who all celebrate this holiday in Canada. If ever the claim could have been made…

Giving is for thankfulness

Recently I have had friends who when the holidays arrived seemed to have a change of direction regarding gift giving. In one case it was my worst nightmare. I was asked the question “what did I want for Christmas?”. It is not a gift when I am asked to order an item from my friends…
