I believe in the power of our words to shape our world. Whatever we think about and speak about becomes our experience in the outer world. "Your Word is Your Wand" is a book by one of my favorite truth authors, Florence Scovel Shinn. I keep her Wisdom collection book on my nightstand. "The Game of Life and How to Play It" is also in that collection! A few years back I was inspired to come up with the ultimate affirmation. The one I came up with pretty much applies to EVERYTHING! And everyone who gets wind ...
A Heart Connection in South Central
One of my greatest joys is sharing my positive music with children. I LOVE sharing empowering messages with kids who may or may not have "gotten the memo" that they are a great light in the world. After having the privilege of performing with the 5th Grade Chorus from Manchester Elementary School (in South Central Los Angeles) at the Universal Sheraton in Hollywood for the Nexxus Conference Luncheon held annually by ICAN (The Inter-Agency Council on Child Abuse and Neglect), they invited me to their school to perform with them at their Christmas concert! I had spent some time rehearsing with ...
If The Shoe Fits… Walk the Cat Walk!
My daughter sees me in my "Plain Jane" persona 99% of the time. AND as a performer my whole life, it wasn't until the last decade that I decided I was pretty without any make-up on at all. A huge deal if you are in the "Biz". We get so used to seeing ourselves made up for stage that seeing our "natural selves" is a tough pill to swallow. I have raised my daughter to understand her natural beauty is... GORGEOUS! And I have grown to feel that same way about myself. But I still ...
I’ve been trying so hard to be ZEN that I lost the FIRE that fuels my PASSION for my purpose. Wait.. WHAT? I know. It sounds crazy but it is true. We all are told that anger is bad. Not if you use the energy of that anger for GOOD. And, it is that fur on the back of my neck standing up kind of energy that makes me want to kick butt and take names! It is how I can remember WHY I am here and what I am here to do. (empower, entertain and inspire) Oh and I’ve been bullied my whole life by other women. For most of my life I have felt guilty for all of the gifts I have been given so, not only have I allowed it, but the bullying voice in my head keeps reinforcing that message to stay small and just send everyone love and light. But I can’t help save the world that way. And it doesn’t help on Spar night at the Dojo either. I am raising a queen to harness that amazing energy so that she can make a difference in the world. No guts? No glory. No Pain? No Gain. GAME ON!
Happy Halloween! Because we all deserve to reinvent ourselves… We all need to find time to play! Ask for what you need and find what inspires you to get in alignment with your purpose and passion. It’s not rocket science. You may find some inspiration at your local Halloween City! And please pay attention to the messages that are coming your way. Out of the mouths of babes. Truth. BOOM!

I am surrounded by amazing, mega-talented, smart, heart centered, spirit centered, very wise people. When I stay connected and pay attention, the messages and revelations I need to move forward come to me at the speed of light! Piano Chat is my way of sharing all of that with you so we can realize our dreams together! I have proclaimed that I am ready to step in to my greatness and share my VOICE with the world. The light energy around that has been astounding for me. You can find all of my music on iTunes or here on my website’s music page.
I have learned that procrastination is a mode of survival to keep from being hurt. For me that means from the failures in my past to get where I need to go. Without anyone to “coach” you through the “GIFTS” of failure, you could be like me and get stopped dead in your tracks. This “protection” from pain and suffering is not a good thing. I work every day to conquer this evil that haunts my life. Oh of course there is way more to the story, but we all can relate in some way. And our stories and our pain can be healed if we allow ourselves to bring it into the light and see it for what it really is.
Are you beating a problem to death? Are you stuck in your head? I find myself way up the crack of my brain sometimes. Not a good place to be. But coming out the other side is truly a joyous occasion for sure. Finding that joy is so important. Find my song “It’s Alright, It’s Okay” on iTunes or CDBaby from my album “Speak the Word”. And do chime in the comments below. See you next time!
“Ask Elizabeth” is back!!!! My daughter and I are quite the team. We have each other’s backs and we keep it honest. Raising a confident daughter with high self esteem is a huge challenge in today’s world. I am grateful for all of the tools in my toolbox including my amazing “Life Coach” friends. Katie McClain is one of those people. If you are ready to TAME your Thought Monster, I recommend her book and following her blog. There is a lot more to taming your Thought Monster and Katie’s techniques are brilliant! WE LOVE KATIE! You will too.
Got Thought Monsters? I do. My dear friend Katie McClain (Mentor and Life Coach) to the rescue! Our thoughts become things. They create our world. We all have negative thoughts that keep us from living in our joy. Katie’s method helps us conquer them. Our words are powerful. They carry great energy for good or evil that goes out into the world and then comes back to us as our EXPERIENCE in this world. So, we attract to ourselves what we are putting out there in our thoughts and words. Trippy but true. We get to decide minute by minute to shift into the positive. Our EGO Maniac Thought Monster doesn’t want us to do that. But when we DO shift, the world opens up in miraculous ways! Let’s kick some THOUGHT MONSTER BUTT together!
Who has TWO TONS OF GUTS!? A boy in the 6th grade does. Valentine’s Day can be brutal. Hear how this boy “won the day”. AND how easy it is to speak your truth and retain your sanity. When I hear the phrase “Go for it!” I will always think of this brave boy who did just that. AND how the other boy who had a shot, blew it because he “didn’t show up”. Sound familiar? Do YOU have what it takes? Do you SHOW UP? Can you speak your truth and say “No Thank you”? I am amazed and grateful for my daughter’s wisdom and bravery. Raising a Queen here.
Happy Valentines Week! My husband doesn’t just “get it right” on special occasions. He shows me sweetness every day of the year. I don’t just feel loved. I feel adored. Every morning he brings me a cup of coffee in bed and my morning “sugar”. (I don’t take sugar in my coffee). I can get my own coffee. But that is not the point. The point is that being kind and sweet and adoring is a beautiful way to live. And there are “perks” for living that way. One of them is PURE JOY! I am truly grateful for the love I have in my life. It is more than I could have ever imagined.
