About Heart and Soul Living

On Heart and Soul Living

What helps us stay in alignment with our heart and soul?
What gets in the way?
How do we sustain our inner vitality to keep walking our path?
How do we stay true to ourselves AND offer our greatest gifts to the world?

These are the questions I seek answers to.  This is what Heart and Soul Living is about.

My heart and soul calls me to be a writer and to share my stories and reflections with the hope that they will encourage, support and inspire others.  May you find something on this site that touches your heart and ignites your soul.


What You Will Find Here

Heart and Soul Living was born while I was walking the beach one day.  I was seeking answers to some questions about my life path and I came across a heart shaped rock resting on the sand.  When I bent down to pick it up, I knew my work is about setting the heart free.

After spending a decade working with groups and individuals as a Life Coach and Spiritual Director, I continually see the importance of helping people listen to and take action on the wisdom and truth of their heart.  I watch people light up as they connect to their inner wisdom and listen to the voice of their soul.  I believe that when we live in alignment with the love in our hearts, we do become the light of the world. This is what I believe about Heart and Soul Living:

I believe in the power of the human heart to transform the world.  I believe we are each a spark of the Divine here to love each other into our best possibilities.

I also believe in the power of Soul-Force and that as we each connect to our soul’s longing, we set ourselves free to offer our highest gifts and talents to the world.

I believe in nurturing the Heart and Soul.

“One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul.  Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it.”
~Clarissa Pinkola Estes~

“There are two basic motivating forces:  fear and love.  When we are afraid, we pull back from life.  When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.  We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections.  If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create.  Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
~John Lennon~
