post title background Overcome Your Fear

We often pull back when we are afraid, even when we are going after something we really want. Because we are so afraid of being hurt or judged, we stop before our prayers are answered and before we achieve our dreams. As we continue into 2013, I want to ask you to set aside the fear and take the action steps to live what is in your heart. You might be asking, “How do I live what is in my heart?” Truthfully, you just have to step through the fear and go for it. Maybe you just let 2012 slip … Continue reading »

post title background Time to Celebrate YOU

Sometimes when I sit down to write a new blog entry to share with you, I find myself in a space where I am writing about exactly what I need. And the experience becomes about sharing not what I know, but what I am learning. Today, I have been thinking about how much I have been RUNNING – running and pushing through all of 2012 … the entire year! I appreciate my ability to run so much, as it allows me to reach my goals. (It is how I was able to reach my goal of putting out the Spirit … Continue reading »

post title background Feng Shui of the Soul

As a certified feng shui practitioner, the idea of creating flow in my external and internal space surges through me. And I find myself regularly asking my clients, friends and even myself, “Are you making room in your soul and in your life for what you love?” Many people complain about how they want more blessings in their lives – whether a special someone, or a career or project that really ignites them. But when you take a closer look, you find that their space is over-crowded; their external and mental, spiritual and emotional environments are so crammed with “things” … Continue reading »

post title background Moises Suriel creates pencil portrait of Oya

  I am so excited to share a piece of art that a Beautiful and Talented “Ray of Light” named Moises Suriel created for me. Moises Suriel put a major smile on my face and heart when he emailed me one night watching the Olympics. After reading one of my blog posts “Live Your Dreams” he informed me that he was inspired to draw a pencil sketch of me. Moises said, “Blessings Oya, I drew a pencil sketch of you tonight on my drawing pad while watching dreams being fulfilled in the Olympics. My wife insisted that I show it … Continue reading »

post title background Overcome Fear of Failure

I have seen a lot of people not move forward because they keep holding themselves back, citing a variety of reasons. But what I’ve realized when I really looked at what was keeping them stuck is, the common denominator of their experiences has always been fear. And realizing this has made me wonder, is there a formula we can use to alleviate fear when it rears its ugly head? Now, I want to be clear:  We will all continue to feel fear when we encounter challenges in our lives. So, it’s probably not very realistic to seek out a formula … Continue reading »

post title background Live Your Dreams

I meet so many people who have given up on the dreams they had as little kids, because they have been repeatedly told those dreams are crazy, or that living them out is not realistic. They have been brought down by those who have told them they need to lower the bar for what they can imagine and achieve in order to avoid disappointment. But I have personally come to discover that there is no such thing as a crazy dream. And it has become one of my greatest missions on earth to share my own experiences with others to … Continue reading »

post title background What is Success?

We’re given a lot of mixed messages about what it means to be successful in our lives. And many of us want to – and even feel pressured to – succeed in everything we do. “Success” is a concept that’s incredibly important to me, and that’s why I wanted to take a moment to talk about what it means to me personally … and how you can turn your own quest for success into a positive, driving force in your own life. First of all, let’s look at the official definition of “success:”  According to The Oxford Dictionary, success is … Continue reading »
