"Inspiration can ignite that spark of internal freedom within us all that cannot be touched by the chaos around us.  For that moment we are free from negativity that keeps us from moving forward. Then the world opens up to give us a glimpse of the truth."

​​To Change anything in your life you must first open the door.  Walk through that door.  Be fully present in that moment.  Be open to the truth.  Take action when required.  And then let go.

Quotes by Carl Gustav Jung, M.D

1. Until you make the unconscious conscious, it  will direct your life and you will call it fate.
​2. Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
3. Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakes
