Good Morning!


Peace.  A powerful, good-feeling word filled with possibility. World Peace. Two powerful words that when put together create hope often intertwined with a contrary sense of  helplessness. 


I know for a lot of people the idea of creating world peace is a pie in the sky dream.  For dreamers like myself, I not only believe that world peace is possible, but I intend to do my part in making it happen.


On the evening of September 11th  2001,  I remember holding my little girl closely in my arms and asking myself, “What can I do to help bring peace into our world?  Surely there must be something I can do.” 


As my head filled with images of chaos and confusion, my heart was grounded in knowing that this was a significant day of awakening. A day that would play an important role in shaking us up in order to help us connect to a wise, inner voice calling us to action, calling us to stop living on automatic pilot and to start living consciously and with intention. I suppose many of us have experienced events in our lives such as a life-threatening illness or a death of a loved one that turned us on our heads and requested that we take a deeper look at ourselves and our lives. Life has a way of getting our attention and when the stakes are high enough, we listen.


In asking the question, “What can I do to bring forth peace?” I heard the words, “Be peaceful within your Self and Know that is all that is needed.”  I realized that the wise voice was right, if my inner world was one of cruelty and chaos, then I would be limited in what I could bring forth into my outer world.  I also realized that I had some work to do; a lot of work to do.  In that moment I chose to increase my efforts to heal the hurts of the past, to step fully into my power, embrace my wisdom and trust that somehow, some way that would be enough. At least for now.


So, here we are.  Several years have passed since September 11th, 2001.  Are you living as an awakened and conscious being?  Or have you slipped back into a state of slumber in hopes that others will do their part (and perhaps your part too) in making the world a better place? 


I would guess by the fact that you subscribe to my newsletter that you are someone who has chosen to commit to being awake and to living your life as purposefully as you can.  I acknowledge and celebrate you for making that commitment.  And I am grateful for you for I know that the world is a better place because of the work you are doing (and it does feel like work sometimes doesn’t it?) to live Authentically and with Intention. 


I ask you to take this moment and acknowledge yourself for all that you have done to get to this perfect and important moment. To celebrate the challenges you overcame and to honor the people in your life who helped you get here. 


Now I ask you to think about the friends and friendships that have brought you joy and blessings along the way, the angels in your life who believed in you even when you didn’t.  Give thanks for them and the gifts they bring.  Know that together you are indeed playing an important role in bringing forth Peace into a world that is ready to listen.


It is truly an honor and pleasure to be on this path with you.  I am humbled by your presence and exhilarated to know that we are indeed making a difference.  What could be better than that?


Have a Thankful week!

Carole's Latest Book Recommendation


Eat, Pray, Love : One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia (Hardcover)
Elizabeth Gilbert

At the age of thirty-one, Gilbert moved with her husband to the suburbs of New York and began trying to get pregnant, only to realize that she wanted neither a child nor a husband. Three years later, after a protracted divorce, she embarked on a yearlong trip of recovery, with three main stops: Rome, for pleasure (mostly gustatory, with a special emphasis on gelato); an ashram outside of Mumbai, for spiritual searching; and Bali, for "balancing." These destinations are all on the beaten track, but Gilbert's exuberance and her self-deprecating humor enliven the proceedings: recalling the first time she attempted to speak directly to God, she says, "It was all I could do to stop myself from saying, 'I've always been a big fan of your work.'"
