Come back to your own heart. The place where the Holy waits for your embrace.

Get quiet and listen.

It’s not the loud voice, but the Still Small voice of the Sacred that holds the key to truth.

No one outside of you has your answers, no one.

Listen with respect, gather information, research, study, but always go back to the heart, It knows.

It takes courage to act on what you know in your heart. It is a muscle to be developed.

Don’t beat yourself up if it’s too scary too make the changes you seek immediately, just keep coming back to where true truth resides, in You, one day you will. The Holy loves you right where you are.

Everything is in Divine Order.

The healing presence of love, is the only meaningful gift we can give when someone is emotionally suffering. 

Being with, just being, having the ability to sit in the uncomfortable silence when there are no words, shifts the environment for a brief period. It opens the gateway to the heart where the feeling of being utterly alone is briefly lifted, there is a wordless understanding that someone hears their pain, and with that act of peaceful presence a momentary breather is given on some level within. 

We will never truly know the impact of our compassionate heart, but we’ve all felt it when someone was just there for us, not trying to fix, but just with us, just present, sitting with, as we suffer. Yes, love is the most powerful gift we can give. 

Love is my religion. Love.

-Sandy Powers, Life Coach


In our younger years our view of self was determined by what others taught us and thought of us. We bought into it because we knew no better. What society deemed beautiful, worthy, and of value we believed was the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Little did we know there was a greater resource of truth inside of us. That when we start to question the validity of what others say, do, and act and begin to look within we discover a whole other way of looking at life.

Stepping away from how you were told to live life and what is right, at first, is confusing. But when we continue to dive deeper separating our belief system from others and tap into our own beliefs that make sense to us a sense of freedom is encountered.

Finding beliefs that help you live a kinder, more joyful, and peaceful life is worth the effort. Stepping away from your original worldview, which for all of us was defined by those outside of us, at times will feel disloyal, but continue the journey.

Study, ask questions, and step outside your comfort zone. Explore on your own and you will find there are many ways to living a fulfilled life. Find one or two that help you grow into a more authentic you.

When you first quit living life from the way others think you should you’ll get resistance. People will try to pull you back into their view of the world. It’s just the way it is, it’s human nature. Feelings of rejection, doubt and fear will tag team, but keep going, find your way.

Be a trailblazer. Live from your heart and not by others standards or opinions on what and how you should live.

Find a path that’s right for you, a path that brings more joy and peace, a path that radiates your loving self, a path that makes your confidence and self worth soar.

We are each a unique expression of life. It’s okay to be different, to not think the same way as what you first thought was the right way.

Deep sea dive into your heart.
Find your way.

We need your beautiful unique expression of love and compassion in this world.

We go through different phases in our lives. There are ups and downs and all arounds. We carry sadness or anger or joy, or excitement, or… the list is endless, each is carried for a period of time. The emotion camps out in our being and after a while when it has done what it has meant to do it shape shifts into something else.

What could negative emotions be meant to do?
What could positive emotions be meant to do?
What is it we need to become aware of?

Reveal to me what I cannot see is my prayer. I know I will repeat the same cycle of emotion over and over again, being triggered in the same way, with the same energy coming at me, until my lenses clear, and my Spiritual self knows I’ve heard what it has been trying to share.

Everything is energy. Everything. As human beings we have been given the gift to shift the energy and use it in ways that serve us and others instead of draining us or dragging us down. But we can’t change and become energy shape shifters until we become mega energy managers, becoming aware of where we spend our energy.

No matter what you’re going through it’s ok.
It’s ok.
It’s ok.
Be with it.

Everything is in Divine order. Everything.

Over time we really start to get it, we’ve become master sleuths, finding the gifts of positive and negative experiences. We’ve invested in the best flashlights, invested in incredible magnifying glasses, and are willing to go wherever the emotion takes us. Often it takes us deep into the darkness. That’s ok, a master sleuth has it’s tools. We almost always uncover long ago buried debris. We examine what is found with the powerful tools in our toolbox. We’re members of the sleuth organization and utilize various members to help us discover meaning and understanding that sets us free and brings more peace and joy.

Discovery, clarity, getting it, is cause for celebration. Feel the joy. Feel the crazy wonderful joy. Stay with it. Don’t minimize the discoveries. Wash your body, mind, and soul, with what you’ve found, breath it in and breath it out. This is what awakening is all about.

Listen. Love. Laughter.
Listen with intention.
Love whatever you discover.
Laugh as you celebrate freedom.

Breathe your thoughts in, bring them home to the heart, the place where they can rest and just be for awhile. Breathe it in and breathe it out. Call them home. Breath them in, feel them making their way back into you, into the place where the only peace can be found.

You are your own safe space.
You are a magnificent energy of love.
You are more than enough to handle any situation.

Celebrate the joys. Celebrating is just as important as the listening and love. Stay with it. Re-energize yourself. You are worth it.

What can’t I see? What behaviors need to be looked at?

What bad habits still run amuck in my life?

When I experience someone else’s bad behavior I wonder if Life is trying to show me something about my behavior. I’m a bit shocked when I realize it is, my ego argues with me, no way, we’re not like that. No way, no how, was I like that person. After the shock, and I’m calmer, I take some deep breaths into my heart, the place where the calm wisdom self resides. I’m immediately humbled. My heart rewinds the tape of my life showing me snapshots of recent experiences and there is always one if not more examples of how I treated someone in exactly the same hurtful rude way I was treated.

I can be so self-righteous at times. Well I’m more spiritual aren’t I? I’ve healed more than they have, haven’t I? I’m not as rude, or hurtful… am I? Yes at times you are Sandy. We’ve been trying to show you that and this time finally you get it. Bravo!

We always have stuff to work on, it’s life. We are perfectly flawed human beings. And that’s okay, in fact it more than ok, it’s the way it is.

I’d much rather find, admit, and correct behavior that hurts others then never have a chance to correct my rude behaviors. I don’t want to be rude.

Now can I control how others perceive healthy boundaries? No. Can I control anything about someone else? No. But what I can do is continue deep sea diving into my own stuff and cleaning up as much as I can, that’s all any of us can do.

Life is good, even with ego pinches now and then.

Lean Into What Hurts

Lean into what hurts.

Find at least one person who will just listen, no fixing, no special words, just listen and care.

When we experience someone caring it creates a safe space for the light of our heart to be revealed.

What a blessing when who we are sharing our hearts with offers a caring smile, or looks at us with gentle eyes, and by their actions we know judgement is no where to be found.

This type of listening brings peace and hope, that everything will work out. We may not know how, but our heart assures us with a feeling of peace. We know, if only for a moment, it will be ok.

That is the power of kindness, of compassion, of love.

It doesn’t take any special talents, every person has the capacity to listen and to care for another human being.

We need each other to build a caring and compassionate community.

Never doubt the impact of your caring heart.


     Listen with respect to those outside of you, but go within for the answers. As Rumi states “the entrance door to the sanctuary is inside you.”

What sanctuary? The one given to you at birth. When the Creator blew life into us we were gifted with a place where unlimited, love, peace, and joy reside, it is housed in the heart.

If you can make your way through the overgrown path life’s hardships have pummeled you with you will discover we do indeed have everything needed for the road ahead.

Faith helps us access these treasures, but regardless if we believe or not they remain in us and await our embrace.

Utilize this inner resource and watch life respond in ways you never dreamed possible.

As the poet Attar says,

“Let love lead your soul

Make it a place to retire to,

a kind of cave, a retreat

for the deep core of being.”

     Heal, do whatever it takes but make your way to this inner sanctuary. It is yours forever more no one can take it from you, no one.
