What qualities are necessary of a great mentor?

Last weekend I was having a really tough time emotionally. In two days, I probably slept a combined 30 hours with intermittent nightmares. In my awaken state, I was feeling depressed, confused, even suicidal. What the hell was going on?

Because I have consciously created a rock-solid routine, I’m able to spot anomalies that could be derailing me. So in-between moments of slumping depression and debating suicide via jumping out the 2nd-story window head-first, I began journalling.

Too much sugar last night? Nope. My girlfriend’s kids whining? Sort of. That small glass of white wine we received as a gift? Maybe. No response back from a txt I sent my son’s mother? Most likely. Poor sleep the past week? Ok that makes sense.”

Little by little I was connecting the dots from one trigger leading to a stronger trigger, which lead to an even stronger trigger and before I knew it…I had been run over by a gigantic ‘trigger’ snowball flying down the mountain leaving me deflated, despondent and depressed.

Facebook to the rescue.

After two days of my girlfriend asking, “Is there anything I can do to help? What are you feeling right now? Where is this coming from? Should we go to the ER?” And me barely mustering a single-word response, she did what she does best…went onto Facebook for help. She knew the ER, medication, or even coaching was going to help. But she felt her Facebook Friends held the key to my recovery. Previously, she had made a connection with one of my Pranic Healing Masters, who just happened to be online when she sent out the social SOS.

She messaged her explaining the situation and asked if I could receive distant pranic healing immediately. My Master said, “I will start healing him now.”

This all happened without my knowledge. In a couple hours, I was feeling lighter and instead of thoughts of suicide I was having thoughts about the TED Talk I was watching. My girlfriend walked downstairs and said, “I love you very much and Master just gave you a healing.” In that moment, a flood of gratitude and appreciation came over me, bringing me to tears. Thinking of my Master, “She’s always there for me no matter what. And never asks for anything in return.”

I received a Facebook message from my Master a few days later. “How are you doing Christian?”

After a few periods of phone tag, we were able to connect. It had been a year since we last talked. I filled her about my triumphs, which had been many, and then this bizarre weekend of depression. During our talk, she provided insights into how my strengthens and weaknesses could have created this depression and offered suggestions to keep moving me forward in my personal life and my business life of coaching, pranic healing and public speaking.

It seemed as though she was literally reading my inner most beliefs, fears and desires. Its as though she had a copy of my journal in her hands. I’m not talking about a psychic who is really good at ‘cold reading’, I’m talking about someone who knows really knows me deeply and intimately.What a gift to have a mentor like her in my life.

Who is the mentor(s) in your life that you go to when you’re feeling down and out?

I created a list of 10 qualities to be aware of in looking for a great mentor/master/teacher.

In no particular order.

10 Qualities of a Great Mentor:

1. Lives a good life.

Does your potential mentor live a chaotic life of excessive drinking, drugging, laziness, jail time and destroyed relationships at home and abroad? Or does your potential mentor live a life of virtue, health, abundance, influence, respect and service to his community and abroad? In essence, do you want the world he has beyond the shiny objects of his mansion, luxury car or large networth?

2. Does not need you.

A great mentor cannot be bought or corrupted with promises of fame, money or power. His internal state of peace, presence and impartiality is all pervading and indestructible. This is common among the great spiritual teachers like Ramana Maharishi, Eckhart Tolle, Franz Bardon, and MCKS. They have a mission to serve humanity and will do so with or without your assistance. A great mentor does not ‘need’ anything from anyone. 

3. Has a great purpose.

Great mentors have a big calling meant to inspire and/or effect millions of lives. Whether through a product, service, healing or teaching. His motivation is not rooted in more money, more power or more fame, its rooted in service to uplift humanity. A great mentor of mine in Boulder, CO, once said to me when I was an arrogant kid, “Christian, you’re going to realize at some point, life is not just about you, its about service to others. Period.”

4. Been there, done that.

A great mentor has extensive experience of landmine field, knowing where to step and where not to step, without blowing your legs off. His knowledge will accelerate your life by leaps and bounds while saving you years of suffering through lost opportunities, lost money and lost time. A great mentor can see the probable outcome 5 or 10 years down the road of a decision you make now. Its your choice to heed that advice or not. I have a 365-Day Calendar on my desk with quotes from my spiritual teacher, Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui. Today’s quote says, “The Guru can show the way, but you must walk the Path. You must transform yourself.” Meaning your mentor can guide you but you are ultimately responsible for your effectiveness, or lack thereof, to correctly understand and apply that guidance. 

5. Knows when his help is needed.

My greatest mentors have always been there for me without me asking. In my darkest times, I have mysteriously received a phone call, txt message or visitation by my mentors with a soothing message to guide, heal or encourage me. My mentors have, literally and metaphorically, saved my life.

6. Lives a life of mastery.

A great mentor will not only have mastery in their profession, whether as an architect, attorney, real estate investor, medical doctor, or Master Pranic Healer but also mastery of his emotional life. Any anger expressed is purposeful and clearly directed, like a parent yelling at child before placing their hand on a hot stove or running across a busy street. He is the master, not the slave, of his emotions and skillfully uses them to move his great purpose forward.

7. Practices humility.

Humility is the ability to accurately see your strengths and weaknesses then act accordingly. A great mentor is humble in realizing he does not have all the answers but is always seeking higher levels of mastery of resources and knowledge to move his great purpose forward. You will directly benefit from your mentor because of his generosity to share his experience, resources and knowledge with you.

8. Sees and cultivates your greatness.

My greatest mentors have always held the space that I can be, do and have anything I want because I am worthy and capable. A great mentor does not blow smoke up your ass but helps you realize no one is cut from a different cloth. If that person is realizing his potential, I too, can realize mine. A great mentor recognizes that I, like all others, is a being of divine Light (Intelligence), Love and Power (Will). By expressing these three divine qualities I can realize my greatness.

9. Is patient with you.

Have you ever had to change a babies’ diaper? Do you start screaming at the baby saying, “When are you ever gonna learn to use the toilet! Its really not that hard. I’m so tired of this.” No. You change the baby’s diaper realizing that’s what babies do. Its the nature of a baby, which is different than the nature of a toddler, teenager, adult or elderly. Likewise, a great mentor has unlimited patience for you because he knows you will eventually learn your lesson and once that happens, your world will transform. I have struggled with certain lessons for over a decade (probably lifetimes) but my mentors have continued to help me navigate the subtles and nuances of the lesson knowing that one day, I will grow up and stop crapping in my diaper and use the toilet.

10. Loves you.

Most of all, your greatest mentors love you. His love helps to nourish your soul. In spiritual circles, the Guru-Disciple (mentor-mentee) relationship is the most loving and longest lasting of all relationships because ‘he’ is there to help you evolve into the best version of yourself and eventually, reunite with your Divine Spark from whence you came. It is said, while your parents are with you in this life, your Sat Guru (Main Teacher) is your spiritual parent that has been with you throughout the ages and will remain long after you have left this body. ‘His’ love is unconditional and all pervading. The love of the Sat Guru shines like that of the Sun, whether you choose to pull or open the blinds matters not, the Sun never stops shining.

So where do you go to find a great mentor or even your Sat Guru? Hmm. Great question that I don’t have a step by step answer to…yet I can recommend a book that will provide some clarity and awareness of who is currently mentoring you, check out The Master’s Path. I’m always amazed by great books that contain countless gems are usually the smallest, cheapest and unassuming covers.

I truly hope this helps you on your path to physically connecting with your greatest mentors and even your Sat Guru.

I have been blessed with great mentors in my life and even more importantly, the awareness of their existence. How do I pay back people who have given me priceless teachings, blessings and healings and never asked for anything in return? By paying it forward and continuing the process of becoming a great mentor myself. Yikes, I gotta a long way to go.

Getting off the phone with my Master Pranic Healing teacher, I looked at my notes from our talk and thought, “Wow, I have come so far and still have so much farther to go. Thank you Lord for the assistance. How can I pay this forward?” And then got my laptop out and wrote this article.

With Love.

Are You a Social Butterfly with Clipped Wings?

By | Coaching, Daily Routine, Uncategorized | No Comments
butterfly 2

Are you also beautiful and trapped?

Last night my girlfriend hosted her very first book club in Denver. The first book they’ll be reviewing is called the Desire Map by Danielle Laporte. This author is pretty badass, even for a chick. I read her other book, Fire Starter and was really impressed with her candor, razor sharp wit, and a willingness to be vulnerable. The first meeting was a smashing success with almost 20 women in attendance. My girlfriend, is also a coach and after every session or speaking gig, we love to debrief with each other on these 3 questions, 1. What went awesome? 2. What needed some work? 3. What can be done better next time to make it even more awesome? I was surprised by her answer to number 2.

“So many of these women have lost their passion, their love of life, and they went from being social butterflies to butterflies with clipped wings.”

She shared with me, minus the names of the attendees of course, how many of them felt stuck in their lives. She asked the group, “What do you love most in life?” Many of the women felt compelled to respond with the typical knee-jerk responses of ‘husband or boyfriend or kids.’ Otherwise they could be judged as a bad wife or girlfriend or mom.

My girlfriend exploded, “I’m so glad these women are here, we’re going to reignite that fire!” Considering how much love, passion and dedication she has for assisting others in transforming their lives, is it any wonder why she chose to be a life coach?

How did these once social butterflies who met the world each day with wonder, curiosity, openness, and vulnerability become butterflies with clipped wings with dim eyes, fuzzy purpose, and disconnected relationships?

Its not just one, two or even three factors….its probably dozens. Lets look at 5 Big Ones.

Ecosystem. Whenever my girlfriend is agitated, hyper emotional, or depressed its typically for one of two reasons. She hasn’t had sex in a day and feels a deep ache to pair bond and orgasm or she hasn’t been taking care of her ecosystem of positive emotions.

I first heard this phrase coined by Owen Cook, an expert in social dynamics. I later realized the contents composing an ecosystem of positive emotions is subject I had studied for 20 years. In essence, your daily routine of sleep, nutrition, exercise, meditation, and social network will have either a positive net gain on your emotions or a negative net loss on your emotions. The more self-care a woman practices the better she’ll be able to not only survive but thrive in her day to day Being.

How many women put others needs ahead of their own? In the rare she does, there is a flood of perceived or actual judgment from friends and family who ‘depend’ on her for their ‘very survival.’ By taking care of yourself daily in these areas of your life you will be the super woman you know that you are, but here’s the catch. You’re gonna have to setup clear intentions with boundaries. Be able to say no, or not now. No one else can do it for you.

Your alternative? Stay tired, frustrated, and unappreciated by friends and family while you give not from your heart but from resentment, bitterness, and forced obligation. Butterflies that do not practice self-care daily wither and die by the very flowers they nurture.

Media. News Flash Women: you have been brainwashed since birth. Every medium of advertising since you were born has been telling you are not pretty, sexy, smart, funny, healthy unless you eat this, wear this, drink this, apply this or remove that. WAKE UP WOMEN!

These channels of advertising do not give a shit about you. They are simply preying on your emotional body to sell you anything and everything that they tell you will make you happy. Would you rather have your self worth, self esteem, and self image controlled by marketers, advertisers, and makeup companies or would you like to be in the driver’s seat?

As cliché as it sounds, true beauty comes from within. A woman who has loving thoughts and loving words, who loves and cares for herself, who has loving supportive relationships in her life will glow like the sun. But what of the woman who spends her days and nights wallowing in negative thoughts, negative emotions, clubbing, excessive drinking, and consuming processed foods while she surrounds herself with relationships built on drama, chaos, and abuse? No amount of makeup, male attention, plastic surgery or shopping sprees with fill her emotional and spiritual void. Butterflies have a hard time flying when their wings are coated with shit.

Beta Boys. How many of you women have wished if you could just find a “nice guy” and stop dating all these jerks, you’d be happy?

Enter Beta Boys stage right.

You do not want want a “nice guy” (beta boy). Here’s why.

A “nice guy” will give you everything you want; attention, gifts, words of affirmation, and comply to all your wishes. His only purpose in life is to please you. You’ll be placed on the highest, most expensive, 24-karat-gold-plated pedestal. Guess what? After the initial ‘he’s perfect’ wears off, you’ll be bored to fucking tears. You won’t respect him because he has no bigger purpose in life than to please you, which means you’ll have all the added pressure to be happy in the relationship.

The real kicker is these beta boys turn women into scared, bitter, resentful, and disconnected women. Beta boys are coming from a disingenuous place. The attention, gifts, and compliance are masking their lack of direction, neediness, lack mentality, and desperation. Beta boys are reactionary not responsive. They suck positive emotions from you because they can’t create those from within themselves. Beta boys are fearful and intimated by your sexuality. They are constantly seeking validation and approval from you rather than you seeking it from themselves.

Enter Alpha males stage left.

Alpha males are the ones who have a higher purpose in life. They set the frame of the relationship with honesty, clarity, and are uncompromising, the woman can choose to enter his frame or not. Alpha males are non-needy because they have clear direction, social life, and their own ecosystem of positive emotions that nourish them, not relying on a you to provide that. They allow you to be feminine, flowing, emotional, and moody….because they are centered and unaffected because they know your emotional storm evaporates in their shining consciousness. They celebrate, admire, and relish in your sexuality in all ways rather than suppressing and judging it. When you are in the presence of a true alpha male, it allows you to relax into your femininity, sexuality, and sweetness. Butterflies have a hard time basking in the sunshine and flowers when they are being swatted by the beta boy gardener.

Hard-Wired. We are social creatures since we started forming tribal cultures approximately 200,000 years ago. Typically a tribe consisted of 150 to 500 people max. After that 500 member threshold, your connection to these members would be in face only.

Our brains are hardwired to socialize in small tribal communities. This hard-wired tendency to limit our social interaction to 150-500 members, becomes a problem in our modern culture because resources, employment, and opportunities are spread out over vast areas and require connecting with 100’s, if not, 1,000’s of people to get what we want. Fear comes up.

In tribal cultures, if you stood out from the group in a way the group perceived to be endangering them, there was a chance you would ostracized from the tribe. Alone in the wilderness during these times meant certain death. Our brains are still holding onto that thinking, if you say hi to this person or ask you boss for a raise or go in for the goodnight kiss, your amygdala screams, “No, don’t do that! You’re going to be kicked out of the tribe and die!” So its better not to say or do anything. Never-mind the fact that in our modern world you can practically say and do whatever the fuck you want and still thrive tremendously.

The point is, its alright to be expressive, to be vulnerable, to ask for what you want and refuse what you don’t want. Being unfriended on Facebook or being uninvited to the Annual Gala Dinner or receiving a dirty look from your server because you said your food was cold, will not leave you isolated and left to die. We, men and women, must realize this fear is rooted in our biology not in our reality, it is ancient history. Literally! Butterflies who don’t socialize with other butterflies will be left out in the cold to die.

Karma. Being born as a woman suggests you have specific gender karma to work out. One in four women have been sexually abused in the United States. That is the collective pain body, to quote Eckhart Tolle, that women born into this country are dealing with. You may have been molested as a small girl, you may have been raped as a college student, you may have been physically abused by a boyfriend or husband.

Life is not fair.

Life IS about cause and effect. A spiritual teacher of mine once said, “No suffering is undeserved.” Meaning whatever pain, suffering, or anguish you are experiencing right now or in the past, is because of past actions or seeds you planted. In this life or a previous one, you planted the seeds of abuse, rage, neglect and violence. Now you are reaping those fruits in this current life.

How does it serve you to wallow in pity, victim-hood, depression, and bitterness for the rest of your life? Forgive the person or persons who were channels for your negative karma and have compassion for them. Here’s why. You are suffering now from your past misdeeds right? The person or persons causing you pain right now will suffer as much or worse in the future through the actions and misdeeds they are sowing. Simply learn your lesson and move on with your life. Butterflies that are angry, sad, and depressed looking at their feet miss the beauty all that is beautiful; other butterflies, flowers, the sun, the moon, the stars, and beyond.

This is not a complete list as to why women lose their way of being social butterflies. Here are your takeaway points. Creating and sticking to a daily routine of self care with improve your life immensely. Your radiance and beauty comes from who you are Being, not from what you are Buying. Be open to receiving an alpha male whose presence opens and develops your feminism and sexuality and avoid the beta boys who wish to control and suppress it. Realize your biology not your reality, is keeping you from being social, asking for what you want, and refusing what you don’t want.

You were born at this time in history, to your family history, in your body because of past thoughts, words, and actions. What life and lifetimes do you want to create moving forward? Forgive the past, look forward to the future and realize you are far more than a butterfly with clipped wings.

You are a beautiful, divine child of God with a life’s purpose that is calling.

With Love.

Improve Your Brain by Turning Off Technology

>ping< “I can’t believe he said that.” >ping< “Cool. She liked my comment.” >ping< “Hmm, that looks like an interesting video.” >ping< “Oh yeah, let me email him back.” Every >ping< in your life; email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, txt message, or cell phone ring is pulling your valuable mental resources and splattering them across the ethers like a shotgun splattering brains on a freshly painted kitchen cabinet door.

In order to accomplish anything significant requires good ole’ fashion focus. I challenge you to name one person whether spiritual, business, medicine, or entertainment who accomplish significant things in life who was not focused. Go ahead…I’ll wait.

Ok. Enough waiting, I have this article to write.

Its been said, with every little distraction we face each day, it requires approximately 20 minutes to get back into the flow state we previously had before the distraction. How many >pings< do you experience every day? At least 10? That’s 200 minutes of wasted focus time each day! The reason steam can move a locomotive is because the energy is contained in focused not scattered. Power comes by focusing.

There’s a neurotransmitter in the brain called dopamine. This chemical is released mostly by nerve cells in your brain and motivates you to act. Each time a >ping< happens in your awareness and you response to that >ping< it depletes your dopamine. The more depleted your dopamine, the less motivation you have to accomplish important tasks or engage your willpower. Think about next time to respond to txt after txt, email after email. The goal is respond with intention rather than out of reflex.

In their book Switch, brothers Dan and Chip Heath talk of three factors to create a long term habit. The three factors are 1. Direct (Rider), 2. Motivate (Elephant), and 3. Shape (Path). In dealing with focus, reducing distraction, and preserving dopamine lets use factor number 3, Shape. We can know what we want, we can be motivated to get what we want, but if our environment is constantly distracting and derailing us than it can be near impossible to accomplish our goal. For instance, a smoker who is truly committed to giving it up once and for all, will have a very hard time quitting if continues to surround himself with smokers, has cigarettes in his house and car, while not removing the psychological triggers causing him to smoke. Likewise if you are looking to focus and achieve more in your life, it helps to create an environment that is supportive of the new habit.

Therefore to protect your brain, dopamine levels, and to get important items done…simply shape an environment that is conducive to having focused, one-pointed attention.

6 Tips for Shaping the Environment to Focus:

1.Turn off all >pings< email and text alerts, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram

2.Limit the channel of ways people can interupt you i.e. only meet face to face at 1:00pm

3.Close the door to your room or office and create quietness

4.Determine a set period of time to focus i.e. 9:00am to 11:00
am, break 30 minutes, 11:30am to 1:00pm.

5.Pre-determine when you will check all >pings< i.e. during lunch, after 4:00pm, after this project

6.Focus on the task at hand. The zen method of when walking, walk. When eating, eat. When listening, listen. Multitasking is overrated and is not efficient or effective.

Hope that helps you establish more focus to accomplish what you want in life and keep your brain from >ping< burnout.

With Love.

A Daily Routine Fit for a King (or the Wealthiest Person Who Ever Lived)

By | Daily Routine, Habit, Prosperity, Uncategorized | No Comments

The same daily routine for over 60 years made John D Rockefeller Sr. the wealthiest person who ever lived.

As long as I can remember I have had a horrible daily routine. Some days I would sleep 14 hours and wake up feeling exhausted with a severe headache. Other days I’d be running on 6 hours of sleep and accomplish more in that day than in some weeks.

Eat times and amounts were always a hit or miss with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I would skip meals because of my work schedule or I would gorge at 11:30pm at night after a group meditation with friends. I ate processed foods because they were fast, cheap, and tasty never-mind the addictive qualities.

Exercising was a complete joke to me. God blessed me with the good genetics that kept my muscle mass high and fat mass low consistent throughout my entire life. I would workout in spurts, on and off for years. I was never consistent because my body worked great whether I worked it or not.

The term job dissatisfaction I think was actually coined by a friend who was helping me restructure my mess-of-a-resume. She became overwhelmed by the sheer volume and types of jobs I had over the past 15 years. I’ll bet you right now, you haven’t had anywhere near the amount of jobs I’ve had in my life.

Even my meditation practice, my only source of intense bliss and inner peace, was just an every other day or every three-day affair.

I saw sleep, nutrition, exercise, work and meditation as events rather than a process. If this time was the deepest sleep, most nutritious smoothie, most intense workout, biggest sale or most blissful meditation….I could slack off for awhile, take it easy, have more free time to do what I really wanted to do.

I credit a lot of my inconsistency with the type of work I chose in my mid-teens. The food and beverage industry. I became accustomed to working days, nights, weekends, holidays, doubles, fill-ins, early cuts and having those hours change from week to week. These schedules made it challenging of when and what to eat. If I had plans of going to bed early and waking up early, it was usually derailed by having to work late that night then opening the next morning. Even the very income itself was inconsistent, requiring picking up shifts to pay bills, unforeseen expenses, or saving for a yoga retreat. This pattern persisted into my early 30’s.

Then the shift occurred through the help of a girlfriend, a few books, removing sugar, and a change in mindset.

I began dating this amazing girl who found me working at yet another restaurant job. In the process of getting to know me and the experiences I have had in the worlds of business, public speaking and real estate investing, she made a very strong point, “You need to get the fuck out of the restaurant business; its sucking your life away, paying you dog-shit while you have all these gifts to share.” I quickly heeded her suggestion and haven’t looked back.

The three books that have transformed my daily routine were Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, who assisted me in recognizing the small things I did do everyday could be used as anchors to attach more empowering habits. I used this very method to greatly reduce sugar in my diet and increase the amount of fruit and nuts I ate.

Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller Sr. by Ron Chernow which to be honest I cheated a bit by using the cliff notes by Dane Maxwell from ‘The Foundation.’ I have no problem reading an 832 page book but if I can save some time I’m all about it. The biggest take away I got from Titan was that John D Rockefeller Sr. had the same schedule for over 60 years and was vigilant about protecting it. No one was allowed to impose their schedule or agenda onto his. It helped me realize that a simple, boring daily routine practice over time through rain, sleet, or shine could make someone the richest person in the world.

The last book, The UltraMind Solution by Mark Hyman put my mind at ease about my inconsistencies, stating poor biology rather than psychology or neurology could be the cause of my laziness, depression, inconsistencies, and overall poor daily routine. By changing my diet and adding appropriate supplementation, I became more consistent in every area of my life.

Which brings me to removing sugar from my diet. Well, not actually removing it but greatly reducing it to my morning coffee and the occasional piece of specialty chocolate. The need to reduce my intake of sugar was one of the greatest realizations of my life within the past 20 years. I had absolutely no clue as to how much it affected my sleep, hunger, energy level, work ethic, ability to concentrate, and emotional state. The details are in an article on my website called, How My Addiction to Sugar Almost Killed Me. In a nutshell, only by removing sugar for 6 weeks then reintroducing it into by diet could I see how much it was affecting my physical, emotional, and mental health.

Now the mindset shift was primed and ready. I was out of the restaurant business, the three books gave me the know-how to create a supportive daily routine, and sugar was no longer gripping my life. I made the mindset shift to, “I’m committed to living a supportive daily routine to help me live out my purpose of coaching and healing many people.”

Fast forward to present day. I wake up at 5:30am feeling rested and rejuvenated. Meditation, breakfast, and exercise begin at 5:45am. I spend 9:00am to 6:00pm writing articles, filming videos and coaching clients. Eat lunch from 1:00pm to 2:00pm. Power nap from 2:00pm to 2:30pm.
Eat dinner at 6:30pm. Begin my nightly ritual of drinking tea, journaling, and reading at 9:00pm. Finally I’m off to the inner world of sleep and dreams by 10:00pm.

This is the basis of my daily routine with some slight modifications on Saturday and Sunday. But the whole point is to follow this routine consistently. The compound benefits of this routine are immense. My energy levels have never been higher or more sustainable. I accomplish more in a day than I use to in a week. I feel calm yet alert throughout the day. I accomplish the most important things earliest in the day. With each passing day on this routine, it becomes stronger and easier to live by. The daily routine actually drives me.

I coach my clients on developing a similar routine. The principles and reasons behind why it works are rock solid. It does require an overhaul of certain lifestyle practices but the payoff is not only immediate but the long-term benefits of greater health, inner peace, and clarity of mind are immeasurable. I came to the conclusion that these practices work, I got my life back. I felt in order to live my life’s purpose required a consistent daily routine. The key is daily.

With love.
