I snapped this shot last night with my phone. I love the pink hues on the snow. There is so much beauty where I live and I enJOY it everyday.
I snapped this picture the other day with my phone. I thought it was a nice one. This is the City of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, in the background.
These berries look so beautiful. I did a little googling about the mountain ash tree. I never realized the amazing health benefits of the berries. Here is a link to more info: https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-571/mountain-ash but in a nutshell:
Mountain Ash is a plant. People use the berries to make medicine. The berries may be used fresh, dried, or cooked and then dried. People take mountain ash for treating kidney disease, diabetes, arthritis, low levels of vitamin C (vitamin C deficiency), diarrhea, and menstrual problems.
I for one am going to get me some of these berries. The birds know how good these are.
I hope you enJOYed my picture today and also learning, if you did not know, how amazing mountain ash berries are!
I snapped this picture the other day using my Samsung Galaxy S8 plus and thought it was just gorgeous!
This picture is the sun setting on Lake Superior in Shuniah township. To the right in the picture is the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. Thunder Bay has a population of about 110,000 people and is a nestled in the middle of Canada. It is bordered by Lake Superior, one of the 5 great lakes all of which are freshwater, accounting for 1/5 of the freshwater surface on the planet.
According to Wikipedia:
Lake Superior (French: lac Supérieur; Ojibwe: ᑭᑦᒉᐁ-ᑲᒣᐁ, translit.Gitchi-Gami), the largest of the Great Lakes of North America, is also the world’s largest freshwater lake by surface area, and the third largest freshwater lake by volume. The lake is shared by the Canadian province of Ontario to the north, the U.S. state of Minnesota to the west, and Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to the south.  The farthest north and west of the Great Lakes chain, Superior has the highest elevation of all five great lakes and drains into the St. Mary’s River.
I’ve had people reach out to me about painting this picture and I hope they do! I love that we can share the beauty in the world… and on that note, feel free to share this blog post showing the glorious colours produced by nature’s sunsets in this beautiful part of the world. EnJOY!

This beautiful display was my view this morning on the last day of January. Lake Superior never disappoints and offers opportunities to take one’s breath away on a daily basis.
Lately I have been drawn even more so to the crystals in my life. Having named my coaching business “Crystal Clear Coaching” many years ago, it seems fitting. However, I did not understand the true beauty of the way crystal formations can and do appear in nature.
I like to think of these crystals formations as conduits to beauty, clarity and divine offerings….

A Poem composed and written by me on the shores of Lake Superior where I have found my inspiration and creativity flourishing.
For the audio version listen here:
Oh Great Lake Superior.
I did not know I would fall so deep…
So deep in love with you!
Or how deep your rapture would in turn capture my soul.
I now long and yearn for you when together or apart.
You share with me your beauty.
And it goes straight to my heart.
You show me your many faces.
All of which are unique and pleasing to the eye.
I now know why artists listen to your waves and point their cameras in your midst.
You are relentless in your offerings of beauty and divine prowess.
Your treasures are timeless and the delight you offer is legendary.
Oh how my soul thanks you!

I have put together a short video of a few pictures I took today following our snow and ice storm… very beautiful!
Today I woke up in a dream, or so it seemed. For most of my adult life I have always held a vision that I would one day have a place either on the ocean, probably Hawaii or on Lake Superior in Canada. I never worried about how it would happen, I just knew it would and that the perfect place would manifest. So today I awoke at my place on Lake Superior that I have had for a few months now, after returning home from my first trip to Hawaii. 😊 How do you like that for comparison? Lol
The trip was wonderful and beautiful and in fact breathtaking but I ended up changing my flight and coming home two days earlier than originally planned. So here I am waking up here on Lake Superior on the very day I should be travelling home, and I am finding myself in complete and utter JOY! I am also in complete clarity. Lake Superior is where I need to be. My heart is with this place here on earth.
Many people have asked me if I regretted leaving Hawaii early and coming home to cold and snow. My response was “No, I love my life and have nothing I am running away from so I am happy at either place”. However, coming home to the snow made me realize how much I do love the seasons. I love the snow. I love the fall, the spring, the summer and the transitions. I love it all! Not to say I won’t travel to warm places and experience new experiences, but for a place to live, I pick here! 😊
I am sitting here in complete and utter Bliss. Here is where I will write my best-selling books, create my blog posts to share with the world and hope I impact lives positively. I will also create online workshops to help people to live in JOY, to manifest their ideal lives, and to teach universal laws that work!
In Hawaii I attended a Soulapalooza Conference with Mike Dooley, from Tut.com, the originator of The Note from the Universe.

It was amazing. I have since registered to also become an “Infinite Possibilities” Certified Trainer which is happening on my birthday in May of 2019. Here I will learn directly from Mike Dooley and Certified Trainers who are actively teaching Infinite Possibilities in schools, homeless shelters, prisons, private coaching practices, business corporations, etc. By the time I complete this I will be prepared to even more so teach people the truth about life’s magic, our power, and the infinite possibilities we’re showered with to live happier lives.
When you tap into the universal tool kit, magic can happen. This morning I am working on my upcoming online workshop called “Tapping into The Universal Powerhouse”, that is there for all of us by the way. So, stay tuned and I hope you will join me as a co-creator in this workshop. I will be launching this as a 1 hour, super impactful and full of gems, that will launch anyone who is ready to work on manifesting their ideal life! It’s going to be so much fun too! I hope you will join me.
I close today, sending you’re the highest of vibes and I hope that you too are ready to get crystal clear on what is important to you and that you are ready to manifest your perfect life that will serve your for your highest good. 😊

Yesterday I snapped this picture which I now call “Sun Angel Over The Sleeping Giant”. According to Wikipedia The Sleeping Giant is a formation of mesas and sills on Sibley Peninsula which resembles a giant lying on its back when viewed from the west to north-northwest section of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. For those of us who live in this area we are all very familiar with this legendary giant and we even have a slogan representing the city of Thunder Bay that states: “We Have a Giant Heart”!. I did capture this picture the other day and you can indeed see the giant heart, so I thought it was fitting as well. 🙂
I really do believe this Great Lake, Lake Superior has magical and healing properties and to have both this heart and sun angel appear reaffirms to me that there truly is something mystical and magical about this lake and area of the world.
Lake Superior is the world’s largest fresh water lake by surface area, the largest of the Great Lakes of North America. The lake is shared by the Canadian province of Ontario to the north, the U.S. state of Minnesota to the west, and Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to the south.
I feel blessed to live in a part of the world where I can enjoy this lake and all its beauty.

I am away in one of my favorite cities, Duluth, Minnesota, on the shores of one of my favorite lakes, Lake Superior, and with one of my dearest and best friends, Erika.
Yesterday we had a lovely drive along this beautiful lake that is indeed Superior. It is one of the most majestic drives there is and it is enjoyed by many.
My friend and I had the pleasure of driving through the quaint little town of Grand Marais, Minnesota, and had a delightful lunch at The Angry Trout Restaurant. It was a beautiful day and our hearts were light and the day was bright!
This morning, I awoke to many wonderful messages and birthday wishes. It always feels so good to receive so much love and kindness from others. One message in particular has moved me in a profound way and inspired me to write this blog post.
It was a message from a dear friend and business partner. His words touched me in a way that made me feel that my life has been worthwhile, and that a difference has been made in the world by my presence in it. To me, that is my only desire; that I can in some way uplift, inspire and/or encourage others to live a life that inspires them, a life that is true to their soul and their soul’s calling. I was indeed grateful that his words reached me now, while I am alive, and not at the end of my life, which is when we tend to share how others have inspired or touched us in some way.
His words and sharing from his heart, open and expansive, have further fuelled my rocket ship of desire to spread more Love, Joy, and Kindness in the world. To my friend I thank you. Namaste.
To all of us, I say let us make every day and every moment a Birth-Day. Let us make it a time to rebirth ourselves anew. We are not who we were yesterday or even an hour ago. We are only who we are choosing to be, right now and in this exact moment. Choose Happiness. Choose Love! Choose to see that the world IS a friendly place. Choose to connect to the things that move your soul and call to your heart, and when you see them, share them! Touch someone else’s life by sharing these moments, by sharing your appreciations, by sharing your gifts and thank others for their gifts and how they have impacted you. Let us celebrate each other and the gift of our being in the world, co-creating and expressing our most beautiful and divine selves.
If you are reading this, I thank you for being in my life in some way. My wish for you is that you choose in this moment, that the birth of your life, is indeed worthwhile and that you grab it with Gusto and Passion…. run with it my friends, run with it.
A finale note. Tonight will be a full moon. The perfect time to start a new cycle and create anew. I found this fitting for today. I absolutely LOVE staring at the moon! For me, it is one of those moments I am referring to.
I also love this quote that was shared by The Positive Outlooks Blog….
In Love & Light,
