post title background How to create a space that will bring abundance

Where do you call home? Does it bring you joy? What you surround yourself with, what you look at each and every day when you walk through your hallways should all make you feel vibrant, alive and happy! When your environment is a crazy mess, you can’t feel at peace. When everything in your home makes you think of doom and gloom, pressure and stress, how can you find room for joy? I believe in the idea that your body is your temple. I also believe that your home is your sanctuary. When you go home, you should breathe a … Continue reading »

post title background How to defeat the Fear Monster

All of us pull back from achieving our dreams from time to time, because we are just plain afraid. Our dreams are so precious to us that when we find ourselves in a place where we can act on them, we are afraid to push ahead. Those nasty, worrisome thoughts crowd up our heads. Fear can be your worst enemy! Do any of the following questions sound familiar? “What if it doesn’t work, and I’m left with nothing?” “What if I go for my dreams and find out I’m not strong enough or don’t feel good enough to achieve them?” … Continue reading »

post title background How to be a good listener

Listening is probably one of the most important skills you can develop in both your personal and professional life. No matter what industry you’re in, you will need to be able to listen to your clients and what they want so you can use your gifts to fulfill their needs. Have you ever had a bad experience with someone who lacks listening skills? Isn’t it FRUSTRATING? We’ve all been in the situation – when we’re trying to purchase a product or a service or even when we’re just trying to communicate to a friend or a romantic partner – where … Continue reading »

post title background How to Celebrate You

How to Celebrate You! I’m about to give you a powerful gift. Ready? I am giving you permission to celebrate YOU. When was the last time you stopped running around and sat down to take stock of everything you’ve accomplished? If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been running, running, running, pushing yourself to achieve, accomplish, reach your goals … and you probably haven’t taken much time to sit back and take a breath and recharge. Maybe you feel like you’ve been running around like a chicken with your head cut off … or maybe you feel like you’re trying … Continue reading »

post title background Grow into Your Greatness with Positive Thoughts

Stop what you’re doing, and clear your mind. What are you thinking right now? What were you thinking right before you clicked on this? What were you thinking about when you woke up this morning? What do you think about throughout the day? Our thoughts have great power. Thoughts can lift you up, or they can bring you down. And they can encourage you to be a mover and a shaker … or to stay stagnant and paralyzed, inactive. With that in mind, think about this powerful idea:  What we tell ourselves can change our lives. Try to put that … Continue reading »

post title background Life is a Miracle

I am always fascinated by human life and the science of anatomy. And you know what? Science proves just what miracles we all are. Just the fact that you are here means you won the lotto! Think about it:  Hundreds of millions of sperm are released, and each sperm tries to go for the egg, but only one can win. Some sperm die, and others get lost while swimming the equivalent of several miles to the egg. Finally, one lucky sperm penetrates and fertilizes the egg. And life has begun … your life. The egg and the sperm join to … Continue reading »

post title background Respect Yourself

I have been thinking a lot about the definition of respect lately. What does that word mean, exactly? The dictionary tells us that respect is “a feeling of admiring someone or something that is good, valuable, important.” It is also “a feeling or understanding that someone or something is important, serious, etc., and should be treated in an appropriate way.” After hearing these two definitions, can you say you respect yourself? Many people are so wrapped up in not feeling like they are getting the respect they deserve. And they point fingers at their boss, boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife, children, friends and … Continue reading »

post title background The Real and Authentic You

“Who am I, and why am I here?” So many of us get caught up in our busy, everyday routines that we never stop to ask ourselves about our mission in this life. We don’t stop, touch our chest where our heart beats, connect to our spirit and feel the glowing warmth within. So, who are you? This might feel like a big and crazy question to stop and think about sometimes, but you are a human being who gets to live and connect with the beauty of the spirit that resides within and is blessed to live through your … Continue reading »

post title background Shine Your Light through Education

I was recently asked to speak about my book The Five Star Points for Success at a high school. They were about to take their year-end finals, and the administration called upon me to encourage and inspire the students by sharing with them how important education has been to manifesting my dreams and achieving my life’s purpose. I was thrilled, because education has been absolutely critical to my personal growth and my life’s successes. Many people in the entertainment industry believe that you don’t have to go to school in order to succeed. While I do not think that everyone … Continue reading »

post title background Stop, I repeat, STOP calling yourself and other women “Bitch”! – A Post for All You Powerful Women: Stand in Your Own Radiance!

A Post for All You Powerful Women:  Stand in Your Own Radiance!   I have been super busy with some exciting new projects (including pre-production on The 5 Star Points for Success audio book and loads of new music!) as I continue to transform the Spirit of Oya brand, so I have been away from my blog for a while. But I had to stop everything to write this post, because there is a phenomenon going on among women that really concerns me.   I have been talking about this subject for some time and expressing my opinion about it … Continue reading »
