IMG_6469

Definition of Class Act: Someone who shows impressive and stylish excellence.

Once you decide to no longer allow disrespect into your life, you can serve the world with love and the Universe will provide exactly what you need in a higher quality of life. Become that class act and share your gifts with the world!

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” – Coco Chanel

To me, quality is everything. Those with style, grace, classiness, and love I believe will truly conquer the world. Selfishness and facades abound in today’s consumerism society and realness is a quality that is sorely lacking. How much time do you spend in really listening to others and adding to the quality of life rather than zipping on through?

Dance Your Dreams to Success

IMG_9081

Dance is one of the best ways to express your heart and soul, and have fun ~ besides swimming with dolphins of course! Being an entrepreneur is also a dance.  The key is to live from our hearts and let our logical mind take a back seat.  In dance, it’s passion that fuels the performance.  You can be a great dancer, but without passion you’ll never really create that shazaam impact.

The same can be said in life and your career.  When you’re first learning to dance, you have to think about the steps and rhythm, feeling somewhat robotic maybe even making mistakes.  Then somehow you tap into the rhythm and the dance dances you.  This is the magic space, where you really stand out and shine. In surfing it’s known as the sweet spot, when you come one with your board and glide the slide of the wave.

What Do Dreams Know of Boundaries?

I’ve found that all the answers are within, and trusting the intuition is incredibly empowering! One of the best ways I’ve found to free myself, get out of my head and open the channels to my authentic Self and intuition is by swimming in the ocean with dolphins and truly stepping into being a Mermaid Goddess.  There are no words to describe how freeing this is.  It truly must be experienced.

Have you ever been charmed before? I mean really bedazzled, by sweet talking glamorousness? I know I have. Whether men, women, employers, or employees, it can at times be so easy to be charmed by someone’s presence. Most often though once charmed, the appeal doesn’t last. Finding those people and experiences whose sincerity are rooted deep, truly are diamonds in the rough. Image is a lot in today’s society, however it’s the follow through that adds fuel to the fire.

Here are three keys I’ve found that are imperative to success and happiness:

Spirit of Aloha

IMG_9597

The definition of ambassador is a person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity.  So who or what are you an ambassador for? What do you believe so passionately in that you are representing to the world? Whether it’s the ocean, land, people, a product or service, it may even come down to representing the spirit of Aloha.  It really is the little things in life that mean everything! There’s nothing like the kindness of a stranger, a smile or laugh to brighten your day.  When someone, anyone throughout your day shows true sincerity in caring for you, excellent customer service that gives you that feeling of being supported and well looked after or simply, love. Your spirit and attitude truly makes a difference in all whose lives connect with you.  I hope that someday the Aloha spirit will weave into the hearts and minds of people everywhere and awaken the world to our true purpose in life!

So what are YOU waiting for? Dive in to discover your greatness and the amazing abundance life holds for you.  the sea truly will set you free!

Live, Love & Laugh

IMG_6435

In life, I’ve found that there is always something we can learn in any situation.  The key is to be honest, open minded, and willing to see it! There are two sides to every coin and as Napoleon Hill states, “Every adversity carries within it the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.”

Being willing to face and let go of what no longer serves us or change and grow to the next level, doesn’t mean we have to like it, but it does mean we’ve made the decision to see something in a NEW way.  This always takes courage.  In my own experience, it’s so much easier to focus on the negative aspects.  The positive aspects take work! Take a look for yourself and see how keen you are to be centered on positivity, success, and happiness all the time? Ask yourself how much time you spend seeing the good in life, others, and especially within yourself?

Complaining, worry, and fear can somehow become comfortable and seem to be the “norm” in the world. To “want” to be successful, and taking the road to your happy destiny, now that takes true courage and perseverance.

Ready To Shine!

IMG_2557

I believe one of the keys to life is balance. In order for balance to happen you must be willing, honest with yourself, and open minded to possibilities. We also need to listen to our hearts, trusting ourselves at all times! Our needs must be met in order to provide the world with all our amazingness and this involves faith and service.

“All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me… you may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth meat be the best thing in the world for you.” – Walt Disney

BE OF SERVICE AND BE FREE!

This is not care taking, this is a deeper soul giving, really  living your authentic sSelf as a service to the world. Be honest, real, and take time to truly listen and care.

In this New Year of 2013, bust open and break free from anything that limits you from fully expressing your gifts in this world! People need you, God needs you and your heart needs YOU! There is no one else like you!

Tis the season to be mer magical and merry! Time to let your light shine bright! As this year wraps up, it’s an opportunity to reflect, celebrate, and share love with family, friends and all whose lives we touch! The New Year brings abundance and possibility for change, growth, and magic in renewing our heart’s declarations!

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney

Finding Courage in the Face of Fear

IMG_9591

This month I want to talk about courage. Recently I had the blessing and privilege to share some magic of the sea with a dear friend of mine who is normally petrified of anything in the ocean! She braved her fears, flew to Hawaii, donned a mask and snorkel for the first time ever and allowed me to guide her into the sea to swim with wild dolphins. She even braved a mermaid ocean swim in a tail without a mask! She was astonished how something that was once so terrifying had become the most amazing thing she’d experienced in her entire life!

There is something so magical and empowering when we walk or swim through our fears and reconnect to the sea which is our ultimate life source.

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” – Nelson Mandela

Les Baleines!

I recently returned from French Polynesia where I guided Ashlee, a local artist and massage therapist from Hawaii, to swim with the South Pacific Humpback Whales! I’ve been journeying to the South Pacific for the last 6 years to witness and share the breathtaking beauty of being in the ocean with wild whales. This had been a dream of Ashlee’s for a very long time and it was such a pleasure to see her experience some truly epic encounters with the whales!

On our first day on the boat, we were greeted by an over zealous baby whale! This baby was so playful and loved a game of chase! He was not shy at all and really enjoyed swimming around us, even got some fin-to-fin action! Swimming back to the boat, he would follow us, eager for more playtime! We also came across a whale who was singing his little heart out about 40 feet under us while we floated on the surface, feeling the sound vibrations echo in the sea all around us.  We also met two whales who gracefully swam back and forth with us as an underwater dance. This was so special and we felt so lucky to be with these two whales by ourselves and no other boats around!
