November 15 2020: D.R.E.A.M. a Mindful World

by April
D.R.E.A.M. a Mindful World Life-Coaching Program Over the next several months, I plan to post articles about Project Garden Gate’s new coaching program, D.R.E.A.M. a Mindful World. When we are mindful, positive energy flows with our actions—whether we are eating, walking, listening, talking, or anything else that requires our full awareness. For the first article of this new D.R.E.A.M. a Mindful World series, we’ll address the “D,” which stands for “diet.” It’s about being mindful of what you eat; yet, it’s more about being mindful of how and where you eat, knowing where your food comes from, being grateful, and […]

October 18 2020: D.R.E.A.M. a Mindful World

by April
D.R.E.A.M. a Mindful WorldLife-Coaching Program During this monumental time in the history of our planet and all its inhabitants, it is important that we focus on the body, mind and spirit. This is a time to be mindful of who we are, where we are now, and where we are going. Many distractions draw us away from our true spiritual selves – distractions that challenge our emotions and create hurt, anger and despair. There are three resounding messages to my new D.R.E.A.M. a Mindful World life-coaching program: The practice of living in the present moment leads us deeper into ourselves, which […]

by April
From our Inspiration Series Whispers of Inspiration from the Garden Gate Courage to Change You can do it! The river of life has many obstacles – fast turns, sharp bends, and hard falls. These obstacles are what steer us in new directions and create change. By embracing the attitude “I can do this,” the whole process of change has a much better chance of flowing smoothly. It takes courage to navigate the ever-changing flow of the river of life. Change can be scary, especially if we are content with the way things are. Change can put us outside of our […]

Being Open to Change Brings New Opportunities

by April
“A rolling stone gathers no moss” is a popular proverb. For me it means by staying active and working on self-development, we avoid stagnation; and, then we’ll never be short of new and creative ideas. The universe is constantly evolving around us; therefore, learning to be adaptable and expanding our knowledge is essential. I say this because my life has changed so much in the past several years and a lot in just recent months. I am grateful for these changes. It’s been a transition, but I’m open to new opportunities and whatever life presents me. My primary focus is […]

Increasing Your Energy Through Clearing and Cleansing

by April
If you can say yes to any of the questions below, it may be time for a space clearing and cleansing of your home. To maintain a flow of positive and loving energy, periodic cleansing of our homes is highly recommended. Energy needs to flow freely and if blocked it becomes stagnant and negative things can start happening. Is your closet overflowing? Do you have clutter and piles of paper? Are the corners in your home filled with unwanted items. Are things not going well for you at work or home? Do you need more cash flow? Is your mood […]

Clear Vision – A Love for Animals Leads to a Life of Adventure

by April
Early one Sunday morning I made an international phone call to my sister-in-law, Lee, who lives on the British Channel Island of Jersey.  We talked about her love for animals and the people who have inspired her along the way. Since the time she was two years old, Lee has loved animals. She recalled that her very first pet was a small toad when she was three years old. She fondly shared that her grandfather constructed a cage for her new pet, and together they named it “the frog box”. In the garden of her aunt’s ante-bellum home in Mississippi, […]

Clear Vision – A Dream Takes Flight

by April
Recently my son, his family and I made a trip to visit my sister and brother-in-law at their home in North Lake Tahoe. Early one morning, we all took a walk along the shore of the lake.  We showed my grandson how to toss a stone on the water to make it skip and watched the ripple effect on the surface. As we walked along the shore, I had the perfect opportunity to ask my brother-in-law, Lee some questions about his childhood dream to become an airline pilot. My first question was, “At what age did you have a vision […]

Clear Vision – Life Journeys that Inspire

by April
One of my favorite quotes is by Paolo Coelho. In his book, The Alchemist, Coelho writes, “And when you want something all the Universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”  If you have a desire or a vision and you are very excited about it, the Universe will pull you toward it, you need not to be pushed, you will feel pulled. Over the next two weeks I will be sharing stories about two people whom I think are remarkable. They are my brother-in-law and sister-in-law who both have the first name Lee. What are the chances of having a brother-in-law and […]

Journaling into the Light

by April
I love journaling because it helped me to heal, understand, and love unconditionally. I look forward to each evening to unwind with journaling before turning the lights out. Imagine exploring our dreams, emotions, relationships, illnesses, and talents for a better life. Through consistent journaling our life lessons and even events from our past lives can be revealed. When I began journaling five years ago, I wrote in my journal almost every day and focused on a variety of areas. In almost every aspect of my life, I witnessed a profound transformation. There are many beautiful journals available to purchase, but […]
