15 Phrases That Changed My Life

Words are very powerful.  They are the outward expressions of our inner thoughts. What we think creates our outer world. Our words reflect out into the world what we want to bring into existence.

I marvel at how powerful one word or a group of words can be in transforming our lives. I am thrilled by the way words are woven together... Sometimes, one or two words can make us pause, breathe and begin again. Life anew. Scripts rewritten. Past healed. We move into our Bright Light presence.

I would like to share with you 15 phrases that changed my life. Words that I held in my heart. To mend from broken places. To move through fears. To embrace the joy that is my existence.
