When You Need to Feel Glowy

I recorded this guided meditation for you, for those times when you need to relax for a few minutes and strengthen or renew that “glowy” feeling. Take ten minutes and get comfy. Let me know if you like this in the comments. Thanks!

Guided Meditation Script courtesy of Giselle Toner at


Sitting comfortably or lying down with eyes closed, let’s begin by becoming aware of the breath……

Feel the breath as it enters with a cool feeling and then warming as it gently travels down into the lungs…..

Fill the lungs with a deep inhale, bringing in energy, vitality and prana, the life force…..

As you exhale, feel the body releasing toxins, stress and any negativity that has accumulated, as it drains down into the ground…..

Stay with this breath, focusing on the feeling of deep peace for ten deep inhalations and exhalations….

Feel the subtle vibration of energy that runs through the body….

Become aware of the warmth and tingling of every cell…..

Feel the energy that is in the extended environment, out to infinity, in the entire cosmos, in every part of nature and in every living thing…..

Bring all those energies together and feel them as one…..

Visualize all of that energy shining as brightly as a thousand suns…..

Bring the shining glow of bright energy over the crown of the head…..

Feel it starting to funnel down into your body from the top of your head, slowly going down into your face and neck, traveling down into the shoulders, down the arms, all the way down to the fingers…..

Feel the healing energy and light going down into your chest and let that healing light fill your heart. Allow your heart to feel the magnificent healing, warmth and unconditional love….

Stay with this feeling of warmth and love for five deep slow breaths…..

Feel the healing light go down into your hips…..

Feel it continue traveling down your legs all the way down to your toes…..

Your whole body is now filled with Divine Healing Light and Energy…..

Allow that Healing Energy to completely fill all physical areas that need healing energy…..

Feel it warming, healing and expanding through the areas……

Now bring your awareness to any emotional difficulties and allow the Divine Healing Light to bring peace and healing to any emotional issues or traumas…..

Bring your awareness to any intentions or desires that you may have…..

Hold the thoughts of those intentions or desires as you allow the Healing Energy to bring your deepest desires to life and your intentions into reality…..

Feel your connection to Divine Energy and Light, and know that all is ONE…..

Stay with this deep, relaxing, peaceful feeling of bliss.

When the guided meditation is over, stay seated or lying down, then gently bring your awareness back into the room. Stay in this place of deep peace and relaxation as you surrender completely for a few more moments, then give thanks to your Higher Self and know that you have completed a very healing and profound practice.

Meet A Genuine Original on Tinsel Town Tonight @WinKellyCharles @TenMiniTT #TTT

I enjoyed preparing to interview this lovely lady who is a profound influencer. She is a standout personality in the live streaming community. I am so pleased to have met her and I know that one day, I will meet her in person and we will be great friends. We still have so much to discover about one another, but I know we have a few things in common. Both podcasters and live streamers we also have the same guilty pleasures, sugar and chocolate. We both have published books, although hers are much more creative and inspiring. We have both struggled with the loss of loved ones.

The main difference between us is that am I free to move about and I have control of my muscles and my body does what I want it to for the most part. My new friend does not have this luxury, having been born with cerebral palsy. Yet, she manages to do some amazing things that I do not consider physically possible for me to do, like snowboard!

This list of positive statements sums up the kind of inspiration that I think about when I contemplate my friendship with Win Kelly Charles:

A genuine original.
Find your voice and make a difference.
Don’t forget where you came from, but never lose sight of where you are going.
Believe in your gifts.
Cherish them and explore their possibilities.
Make mistakes and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
Be brave and wild at heart.
Embrace all the things that make you unique.
Be passionate about the things that matter to you.
Practice kindness and compassion.
Be a hero to someone.
Demonstrate character and be a good friend.
Become someone that you will be proud of when you look back on your life.
And remember that all the quirky things about yourself, that sometimes you wish were different, are really the most special.
Because YOU are the real thing.
-Louise Carey

I would like to introduce you to Win Charles!

Win will be my first guest on Tinsel Town Tonight in 2016.

Joyful Heart Whisper and Feeling Fabulous! @SuzieCheel

Posted on September 26th, 2015 by & filed under Be Inspired, Everything Miz Meliz, I Love My LIfe

I am Feeling Fabulous today.

Love the World and Yourself In It.

I feel a change in the atmosphere.

As the wind blows, new ideas float by.

I want to reach out and grab one.

Is there something new on the horizon just waiting for me to reach it?

How will I know if I don’t try and see if it suits me?

This excites me.

Am I being distracted? or perhaps, disrupted?

Head asks questions.

Heart says, just go!

Heart confirms.

People react.

Heart smiles.

What if everything goes right?

I smile.


Meeting Suzie Cheel online on Blab was such a treat! I have “known” her and “followed” her for many years on Facebook and Twitter. I have always been enchanted by her and admired her for many reasons. But I never really “met” her. You know how it is.

One day, I was on Blab and I saw her. The Real Suzie Cheel! I typed in the chat, “Hi Suzie! Wow! It’s Suzie Cheel! Suzie Cheel!” For me at that moment, it was like seeing a Rock Legend. Why? Because up until that moment, I had not seen any of the bloggers or life coaches or empaths that I knew and loved in the live streaming space. I was feeling lonely and a little out of place. Yet, there she was. Someone I knew and trusted. Someone who I knew had experienced some of the awakening that I have experienced. She was someone who could light the way for me and countless others in the realm of acceptance and love.

And she did.

Suzie embraced me like a lost sheep. She took me in and welcomed me. She was thrilled to have a “super fan” at Blab who could show her how things worked. She was enthusiastic about having a platform to share her interests and to help people. She asked me to help her. Me. (Insert huge heart smile here!)

And I did.

I have co-hosted a few Blabs with Suzie. One was quite remarkable for me. She did an oracle card reading for me (my first ever, actually) and it was the catalyst for substantial change. And then it happened again, the following week. The first card is pictured above. It indicated a change in direction. I had been concerned about a relationship I had lost and wondered if I should press to see if I could repair it. After the card reading and sharing with Suzie, I felt comfortable in letting it go. And that was a good move for me. I was able to change direction. Next, I was open to new things. I saw an opportunity and I grabbed it. This gave me new confidence. Things have been so great for me ever since!

The next time Suzie read a card for me, I was concerned about a situation I was in. I asked if I could trust myself. I needed to know if I should redirect my reliance on someone who I was not sure had the best intentions. Suzie pulled a card that she had never pulled before and seemed rather distraught about it. Basically it was a warning and was very timely indeed! I made my decision and it was the best ever! Since then I was blessed with a wish that I had years ago that has changed my life in a huge way. I am more at peace and back in a groove of safety and love. I am spiritually whole. It feels really good.

My heart knew in an instant when I saw her that day on Blab that Suzie was my Rock Star! Her Heart Whispers guided me to a beautiful place of self reliance and joy.


Living to My Full Potential by Melissa Reyes

“Presenting Myself Positively and Living to My Full Potential is What Living in the Moment Means to Me”

I discovered this when I realized that I wanted to be called a writer.  I have been writing all my life, in journals, and I knew that I could do it.  I am an accomplished executive assistant and have worked for very high level business executives for whom I wrote documents and letters without a hitch.  I have published hundreds of newsletters for banks, church groups and schools with articles that I wrote and edited. I had a blog where I posted reviews, articles, interviews, poems, songs, and memoirs for years before I would even consider calling myself a writer!  Why?  Because I had not been published by a certified publisher.  I have not submitted my work to any magazine or publishing house.  Yet, I write.  I am a writer.  Right here, right now.  I am a writer. In this moment.

In every moment only I can define who I am, what I want, and how I act.  I am who I am.

IMG_162071844956958I asked my friends on Facebook what “Living in the Moment” meant to them.  I received varied responses which fascinated me and made me think.  I frequently say that I believe in living in the moment.  I tell others to live in the moment.  It is a monumental realization to me that it means very different things to different people.  I must be careful to clarify what it means to me.  First, I will take a look at what others think. . .

The Artist:
Faith Ringgold
The Caldecott Honor winner is best known for her painted story quilts,  which include “Dinner at Gertrude Stein’s” and “Dancing at the  Louvre.”
“Back when I was starting out, someone at a party  asked me what I did, and I said, ‘I’m an artist.’ And a friend of mine said,  ‘Faith, would you please stop telling people you’re an artist? You’re not an  artist. You’re an art teacher.’ I thought: ‘That’s interesting that she thinks  she can tell me who I am. I’m the one who determines when I’m an artist. And  that’s right here, right now.'”

“Living in the Moment Means Not Thinking About the Future”

I was surprised at this reaction, but oh, so grateful to have received it.  I honestly think this represents what my kids think I mean when I say “living in the moment.”  It made me consider, do people think that I don’t care about what happens in the days ahead when I proclaim that I am living in the moment?  It’s quite the opposite.  I am most concerned about not obsessing needlessly about the past!  I am trying to let go of the baggage and the perceived expectations and the self imposed pressure of doing things right.  In doing so, I may be projecting an attitude of carelessness.
Living in the moment does not mean not being concerned about my actions.  It does not mean that I do not care about what happens in the future.  I do not live with reckless abandon.  I know my friend did not mean that when she said, “not thinking about the future.”  But that is what I immediately processed.  In fact, I believe that living in the moment is about thinking about the future.
Living in the moment is about being responsible and true to yourself in the present, which can result in a very positive future.

“Living in the Moment Means Being Present to Fully Drink Up Life’s Gifts.”

I believe that “living in the moment” can be celebratory.  I believe it is important to celebrate the every day moments.  Let’s recognize the little milestones and accomplishments along with the big blessings in life.  A friend commented on that note quite beautifully when she said, living in the moment means “being present to fully drink up life’s gifts.”  When we become consumed with the minutiae in our life, we check out.  We become distracted with over thinking every thing we have to remember and everything we have to do.  We become absent.  So, remind yourself to be present.
 When you “check in” you can experience, process, absorb and “drink in” all the little miracles in your day to day life.

“Living in the Moment Means Focusing on What is Around You at the Time- Minus Media.”

For some people, constantly and consistently checking the pulse of media influence is vital to their every day focus.  They are the speed readers, the multi-taskers, the skimmers of information, the keepers of statistics and the trend setters.  They know what is happening and they set the tone for the rest of us.  To someone like this, I can see how “living in the moment” would mean taking a breather to be available and present to what is actually happening to them.
Another friend put it this way, “Focusing on now, appreciating the blessing that moment is.”  Tearing yourself away from the thoughts buzzing around about the next big idea and thinking about the many commitments that are being made can be difficult.  It takes a little extra effort to stop and focus on the people and the events that are happening now.  To live, really live, and enjoy a moment – with your family, your friends, your significant other, anyone who is important to you – is what it means to live in the moment.  Bless each chance you get to break away from the fast life.  Slow down and soak in the real people standing before you.  Give that person the gift of your time.  Give yourself to them.  You can get right back on the information highway and you will be stronger and filled with the very zest you need to keep that pace.
Live in the moment and bless it.  Focus on what is around you.  Minus the media.  Pump life into every chance you get to give of yourself.

“How Do You Apply Being Fully Present?”

When I break it down and examine what “living in the moment” means to me, I compare it to “being fully present.”  I asked my friends how they apply being fully present.  One person stated that being fully present means, “To not think about what could happen or what should happen, but just hold on to the power of the human spirit to embrace how beautiful life is.”  Another friend said, “Being present means being aware of the moment.”

I love the idea of embracing how beautiful life is.  Life is beautiful!  My mantra for 2012 has been to embrace and experience every moment.  I believe that awareness is immediate.  Being in the moment is now.  To some, living in the moment is spontaneous.  Just being.  Just doing.  Not thinking.  To me, it is not overthinking.  To me it is taking things in just as they are and not manipulating them to suit my needs or desires.  It means letting go of preconceptions, letting go of control, accepting thngs as they are and as they are happening.  Some call this going with the flow.  Some relate it to the process of unfolding.  I call it living in the moment.

“Living in the moment involves acceptance and appreciation of life’s imperfections and simplicity.  Live, be, do.”
