Do you talk about your dreams and what they mean at your house? We do! What would YOU do if the Death Star landed in the ocean in front of you? And where can we get better costumes? Darth Vader has the coolest costume EVER! But remember that in the VERY END, he finds the light. It is just best to find it sooner than later in our opinion.
Thank you for joining me on my EPIC JOURNEY to living my life in FULL EXPRESSION! I hope I am inspiring you to do the same. This week we are tackling the concept of “HOW?”. Holy Cow! I have always known my WHY but my HOW was eluding me because of my over involvement with the WHOS! Oh please do chime in and tell me your who, what, when, where and why issues! We can OWN it ALL together and FIND the FUNNY so that we can GET THIS PARTY STARTED that is LIFE! It all starts with MINDING YOUR OWN BUSINESS. TCB BABY!
Elizabeth’s idea of a “boyfriend” is a cool friend she can hang out with who happens to be a boy. Boys are more fun than the DRAMA that girls her age(11) are dishing out. She has always had boy friends in her life. So she has no “issues” with boys as long as they are super smart, creative and kind. Her Dad is my best friend who happens to be a “BOY”.;-) Her idea of “dating” as mentioned in this video is not an adult version. (Just FYI)
My daughter can go months without playing on her Nintendo DSI. She is more the play outside type. For the record, she is NOT engaging with PEOPLE online for this game. It is all contained in the program itself. When she does play on her DSI her favorite game is Animal Crossing. It is a brilliant little program! Not only do they have her working a job to pay her mortgage, they have real flawed relationships including BOYFRIENDS (who are all animals) and girlfriends built in to the program! And when discussed with “MOI”, great opportunities for life lessons are here. My daughter and I discuss EVERYTHING! And THAT is why it is brilliant. Kids are so smart about listening to their gut about relationships. It is adult women who stay in stupid relationships all too often. But why suffer when you can ASK ELIZABETH to get the real scoop. She is as always, keeping it honest and telling it like it is! Are you all UP in your daughter’s “business”? I am. Raising the Queen here.
It’s Monday! The day I share what I am writing about in my book “Skip the Princess. Raise the Queen.” Today’s topic is BIRTH STORIES. What we tell our children from the moment they are born stays with them always. What they FEEL in their home as a child stays with them too. It becomes a huge part of who they are and how they feel about themselves. What story were you told? How did it affect you? How does it affect you today? And, what stories do you tell your children. If you have children, you know how much they LOVE to hear their story. It is the best show in town. Or it can be the worst feeling in the world. Every child born is a great gift. What we tell them doesn’t make it so. It just reminds them. I know I need reminded by the people I love. How about you?
It’s “Piano Chat” with a special guest! Meet spiritual teacher, intuitive coach and healer Carol Woodliff! based in Los Angeles. She has a new book out From Scared to Sacred! This beautiful book is a MUST HAVE for your journey on “the path”. She’s crazy FUN and FUNNY or she wouldn’t be my personal Shaman. I won’t spoil the fun but this amazing person graced us with her presence sitting pretty at my Yamaha C7 Grand and it was truly a gift.
Have you lost track of your “WHY”? I did for many years. Many many years. I got it back big time. But there are days when I have a hard time tapping into it. YOU TOO? Join me for PIANO CHAT! And we can remember together. Oh! And PLEASE share with us YOUR “WHY” in the comment section. Speaking it out loud, sharing it by proclaiming it with your WORDS brings great power and energy to your purpose. And when you have THAT, you’ve got your WHY and your good to go!
Are you aware of the SAGE WISDOM of our children? We always joke that “They tell it like it is”. But are you PAYING ATTENTION? I always try my best to PAY ATTENTION to my daughter’s advice. It makes my giggle because she is always SPOT ON! “Ask Elizabeth” is now a weekly SHOW that posts on Tuesdays! My daughter and I are on an amazing adventure together! It is called LIFE! And our “creative take” is heart & spirit centered AND WICKY WACKY! We can only KEEP IT REAL. Please do join US! And Join in the conversation. We would LOVE to hear YOUR comments and stories.
I am finally getting down to the business of writing my book “Skip the Princess. Raise the Queen.” It is all in pieces in my computer and the time has come to focus on finishing it and getting it out there!

Thank you so much for your support and joining me on this new adventure!
This is the month I get down to the business of knocking out my book, “Skip the Princess. Raise the Queen.” It is all in my computer. And now is the time. It is inspired of course by the healing journey of raising my daughter who I named after Queen Elizabeth. The idea of the book is that in order to raise a queen, a mom must first be the queen of her own domain. I believe we must show our daughters what it looks like to live a life of joy that fully expresses our potential in the world. Do I have stories! I cover birth stories, sisterhood, real beauty, true connection, balance in life, realizing our dreams and that is just for starters. I also include my trip to the Miss America pageant AND whether or not to wait for Prince Charming!
To give you a little sneak peek of what to expect, here is a bit of the intro:
Before I start at the very beginning, I must first tell the story of the exact moment I knew I was REALLY supposed to write this book. The idea and the title of this book came to me in a huge “Aha moment”! It was a “Gift from the Gods”, “lottery ticket winning”, “life altering” moment. “Skip the Princess, Raise the Queen!” What a high! Every person hearing it was blown away! “What a great book title!” “I want to read THAT book!” Great… just great…. Ugh.
Then the doubt crept in. Who am I to write this book? The gloom and doom of not being good enough haunted me like the dead people I imagined hanging in my closet as a girl. The weight of “writer block” cement shoes dragged me down to the depths of an imaginary murky river, all the while smiling and waving with my best game face.
One day I was talking to a friend while in my car on my Bluetooth about not being sure. Just then, The Universe swooped in like a mother bird to save her precious young from a vicious predator. It was an “I really can’t make up this bizarre kind of stuff ” kind of moment. The white car in front of me had a vanity license plate that read “PRINCESS”. If that wasn’t clear enough, the frame read, “I’m the Princess” on top and “Who the hell are you?” on the bottom.
Need a sign? I was completely blown away. I laughed as I told my friend, “I need to hang up so I can pull this chick over and explain to her just WHO I AM”. Actually, tell her who we all are as women, Sisters, Mothers, Daughters, and Friends. Women who are not out to ruin someone else’s day but to elevate each other to be great leaders and healers in the world. Not competing or comparing, but supporting and reveling in our differences that make us all unique and beautiful from the inside out. There IS enough for everyone and we all have access to everything we need to get us where we need to go.
I am not a spoiled Princess who runs around proudly ranting mindless dribble. I am the Queen of my domain. I am a fearless leader and warrior born to lead with compassion, love and light. I am here to inspire and empower others to live in the greatest expression of who they are. As are you. You clearly have forgotten who YOU are. I’ll resist the overwhelming urge to slap you to your senses. I’ll have to work that out in the Karate dojo.
This is a book I was meant to write. This is part of my healing journey.
I hope you find yourself here too. I am honored and humbled by your presence.
