Overwhelmed? Practice Being ON-PURPOSE

Today's SPARK reaches through the overconsumption of news, the overflow of swirling emotions, and the overwhelm of fear-inducing change, with a simple strategy for navigating these times.

Right now, many are wrestling with the balance between...

  • staying informed through News intake, 
  • feeling the emotions of each story and each person impacted by the decisions Trump is making each day, 
  • knowing which actions will be most effective in standing up for the values and rights you hold...

9 Liberating Discoveries to Be Bravely Yourself

‘My Week of Bravery’ came to a climactic end with my 5 liberating minutes on stage last Friday night. 

 The question of the night was:

“Do you have something that you know that if you do it, it will move your life forward, but you’re scared to do it?”

My Answer was YES!

What would your answer be?!

Indeed, my answer was YES. I know I’m meant to be on stage speaking, performing and inspiring large audiences, and I was so ready to liberate...

Experience Your True Potential Right Now

Today, rather than just thinking about ‘True Self’ and ‘Full Potential’ as abstract concepts, I want to encourage you to actually experience the full potential of your true self through a fun experiment. Sound intriguing?

Rules of the Experiment: There is no right or wrong. And, do it for the fun of it.

Fun Step 1: 

Grab your phone or basic video recorder and set up a simple selfie recording studio!

Fun Step 2: 

Sit or stand with feet on ground,...

Free Yourself from Needing Others to Like You

Today, I invite you to watch this video….and JUDGE ME!

Yep, you heard right, I said, “Judge Me!”
And then…free yourself from needing others to like you.

I have declared this week, ‘My Week of Bravery.’ This is my time to liberate myself from all that holds me back from being bravely myself on stage in front of an audience. And on Friday, as the finale of this week, I will actually be on stage as part of a live event called “Night of Bravery.”...

You Are an Artist of Your Own Life

I have a vision of a creative altar for our city that everyone takes turn tending. One at a time, or many at a time, we add our gifts, our creativity, our spark to that altar. This altar represents the heart and spirit of the city. It reminds the city of its highest vision.

I voiced this idea at a meeting of artists, performers, and musicians in Asheville, North Carolina last night. The next thing I knew, we were saying Yes to our first taste of this vision today.

I showed up for my time of...

The Magic Is Right Here on the Journey

Today, I realized that I am not on a race to the top. I do not need to climb as fast as possible to be the beacon I dream of being on the top of the mountain…

No, the magic is right here on the journey. And I can be of great service by being who I am, where I am. I’m walking this path Oskar-style. We’re taking time to marvel at flowers and make up spirited songs. And our light is shining, for us, for you, right where we are.

Together in This Circle We Can Light-Up Our World

Today I had a realization (they seem to be coming fast and frequent these days). And because I’m all about being vulnerable and transparent even when it’s not the prettiest picture of me, I’d love to share with you…

I was drawing a sketch of our SPARK community and I was suddenly struck by the pedestal I had put myself on. Yes, I saw myself as the leader standing in the center of the circle shining my light as bright as I possibly could to illuminate your path. I saw...

Choose Life as a Pathway to Freedom

Why do I care about you and me liberating ourselves from whatever holds us back? Why do I care that we both make the most of our precious life? Why do I care that we shine as boldly and bravely as we can into this world?

Well, this week I became clearer than ever about why I care so much…so it’s time to share the story.

This is my favorite photo of my oldest sister, Jennifer. I idolized her through childhood. I was drawn to her free spirit. I wore her clothes, listened in on her...

Trust Yourself 100% of the Time

My baby boy took his first two steps today! Then fell on his butt with a big smile:)

Last night I experienced a sacred foot washing and the woman said to me, “May these sacred feet walk safely on the path of following your heart and spirit.”

As I watch baby learn to walk I notice my own feeling of discovering a whole new way to walk in the world. Trusting myself 100%, one step at a time. And when I falter, catching myself with a smile. And trusting once again. We’re in this...
