What Is My Why?

This is a question that is often heard for business, sales, team building and more. In your time of making the most of your new year and your moments, the question is also significant for self. What Is My Why is a daily question that should be asked in your private time in determining how to move in your day.

Understanding your why is an inner question that we should all seek answers for everyday. It is a great way to begin to seek out your purpose and move into your soul’s desires because your “why” is really your reason for living which can help you make decisions for your life.

You have the power within yourself to live a full life of purpose leading towards your destiny.  Start off by asking yourself the question you keep asking others; What Is My Why?

Take time to listen to more in its entirety through my audio blog that is attached.


Until Next Time!

Love and Blessings,

Audio Blog: Your New Year Starts With A New You!

Happy New Year Blessings!

It is very important to begin your New Year with the understanding of intent.  No matter how many times we experience and say that it is a New Year…nothing will be different if we don’t allow ourselves and the habits we keep to become new as well.

I will be hosting a number of conference calls and trainings on real transformation; mind, body and soul! With a change in your life, you will really see your dreams come true, your new habits for a better life begin to manifest and live truly in a “New Year”.  Allow this year to be your year of purpose and change!

Enjoy my audio blog below that speaks to this topic and pass this to your network with a wonderful word of encouragement for those who are in your life!

I’m looking forward to meeting you soon!

Love and Blessings!

Empowering Beliefs To Live By Daily

Your experiences are often shaped by your past, your thinking and the influence of others good and bad in your life. Believe it or not obstacles can have a value when you can see it. To begin to move forward, you can develop convictions that will help you to feel happier and achieve more, regardless of the situation. This is a wonderful way to begin to live your best life. Your past won’t go away but it can change faces and grow into helping you first and then others with time with your story of hope, love and encouragement.

Consider these empowering beliefs that you can start using today to transform your life through the power of positive thinking.

Empowering Beliefs to Make You Smile

1. I understand my potential. You can achieve amazing results when you put your mind to it. Feel excited about reaching your true potential.  Look at yourself in the mirror and have your mind made up that you will be who you are and not who others want you to be.

2. I count my blessings. List each thing that you have to be grateful for. Remember to include the smaller items, like warm socks or tart cranberries. Expressing your appreciation reminds you of how rich you are.  Your abundance will come from your thankfulness where you are!

3. I learn from mistakes. You can make setbacks work for you by focusing on the lessons that they contain. Flubbing one job interview can teach you how to ace the next one. Being able to take advantage of these lessons means being honest with yourself.

4. I find meaning in adversity. Tough times can be the most rewarding phase of your life. Know that you can emerge from any challenge with greater wisdom and courage. Look back at the obstacles you’ve already overcome, and reassure yourself that you can handle what’s ahead.

5. I embrace change. Accept that life is a series of changes. Focus on the present moment, and prepare yourself to adapt to whatever circumstances come your way.  Change is a huge part of the Transformation process.

6. I dream big. Expand your wish list. Setting demanding but attainable goals gives you adventures to look forward to each day.  Raise your expectations from thinking lower than you can have!

7. I practice forgiveness. Lighten your load by clearing away any resentment you’re holding onto from the past. Set reasonable boundaries while you respond with compassion when others disappoint you.  Learning to forgive yourself is important too!

8. I give generously. Sharing your blessings makes you more powerful and joyful. Volunteer in your community and speak kindly to each person you meet today. Buy coffee for your co-workers or give your receptionist a flower.  Always remember that a seed planted will come back to you in the same manner and many times greater!

Being able to move forward in your life and realize your purpose is going to take you doing the work for yourself.  It is not as hard as it may seem, but there are steps to being resorted to your original self.  What do I mean by your original self?  The man or woman you were created to be is still waiting for you to see.  It is your dreams and desires. Have your mind made up today that you will allow your soul to dictate your reality.

I added for you a recording from earlier this year “Your Dreams Are Waiting For You” at the end of this post.  I love to listen to it for myself and I do believe you will appreciate it as well.

Be sure to join my mailing list officially to take part in my tele- conferences, receive video lessons and take part in coaching events!

I’m believing with you that every moment will be EPPIC!

Love and Blessings,

Run Towards Fear

Running towards your fears requires you to step outside your comfort zone. Change is a necessary part but is difficult for many to come to grips with. Hiding from fear can cripple people and usually makes the situation worse by not taking any action. Try to use this fact as a means to handle uncomfortable situations.
When you do approach the situations you fear, you find they are not as bad as first imagined. Further, you often feel a sense of accomplishment when you take on those fears.
It takes courage to break through and face that which you are afraid of. You will often find others who have either gone through what you are going through or are working towards conquering it too! The simple act of talking about it can often lead to taking the necessary actions. God places people in our lives that are already ready and willing to help you overcome and feel confident to move forward. 
Life is full of challenges that need to be dealt with. Sheltering yourself from facing those challenges only puts them off to deal with later. It’s rare that deferring them will lead to a positive outcome. Confronting them will make you a stronger person and help prevent situations from building to a point of being unmanageable. People will also see you as a leader when you step up to the plate and take charge of the situation.

Actions That Impact Our World

I recently asked my family to write articles about the things that most matter to them. I believe that exposed passion and purpose is very important to our lives and make a major contribution to the world because it is destiny.  This blog post is offered by the eldest of my two sons, Charles Dancer.  I am very proud of his accomplishments, his dedication to his community and the impact he is still to have on the world. Congratulations to Charles and to all men and women in this organization that is working together to save the lives of children.
Charles Blog
There is no such thing as a completely selfless act. A somewhat odd way to start a short bit about my thoughts on community outreach and volunteering, I know. But that is the hard truth, one of many in life. Everything we do is at least for a moment processed in our thoughts, and everything that passes through our minds in correlation with action will lead to a selfish act.

I work with an international group that reaches out to children that are survivors of abuse. I am an empowerer. I help children not to fear the world that they live. None of us are paid for what we do, not monetarily. I keep my legal name and the names of those that are part of this organization secret. My name does not matter. My struggle does not matter. I don’t need to know the specific details of what that child went through. All I need to know is that the child is in fear and that child wants our help. The hard times in what we do are perhaps the hardest of some people’s lives. Seeing the fear, hearing about the hurt while supporting them in court, watching the child squeeze a teddy bear as they do so.

How do I empower? I help empower along with my brothers and sisters by lending our emotional and physical support. If I get a call at 5am or 3pm that one of the children feels unsafe I am willing to go to that child and support them, and I know the rest of my brothers and sisters are too. I will stand in the freezing rain for hours on end to protect with my physical presence if need be. I attempt (poorly) to do cartwheels or dance if that makes the child feel better. I am willing to take a bullet for that child, but just as important, I am willing to live for that child.

I am selfish. Nearly every time I mount my motorcycle to empower I am completely selfish. I feel like a knight saddling up his horse. As I slip my helmet on it may as well be the helmet of an ancient warrior. Riding down the freeway in formation with my brothers and sisters must have the same feeling as knights riding side by side into battle on horseback. My cut (leather vest) is my chest plate and the rumbling of Harleys are the stomping of hooves. People that I would have never have known now take their place in my list of most trusted and dependable people. The struggles of what we do (some listed in the previous paragraph) are outweighed by the good. Seeing a child come out of the house with a smile because they know they get to go on a motorcycle ride with the new members of their family. Watching them play in the front yard instead of in their bedroom because they know that they are protected. But most importantly, watching them become empowered. Seeing the children stand up and say I am not afraid.

Be proud of what you do. Be proud of those that do it with you. Be selfish.

Sharing The Key of Forgivness

Every month on the 1st and 15th, I share what I call “Dr. Karen’s Nuggets”.   They are emails that go out exclusively to those who have been a part of my events and/or asked to be a part of my mailing list. Every topic has sparked many comments that have been very encouraging, inspiring and motivation for me to continue to offer words to feed the spirit and the mind for change. My latest, “Key Of Forgiveness” is truly one that sparked a storm of emotions and conversations for change, truth and release of the past to move into the present. I made the decision to share this particular topic with you through this platform. I’d love for you to send your comments. If you desire to move forward and learn how to begin living in your 2nd Chance, feel free to contact me via email to join my list and receive special information regarding future events!

Forgiveness is a major key to your next level of success.  Whether it be business, personal, social, it is necessary to have a spirit of forgiveness to illuminate love and attract what you want to receive.  Good health, happiness, joy and support.  You may say Dr. Karen, why should I forgive someone who has wronged me, hurt me, let me down, and shown no support?  Seemingly crushed my world?  I say to you, it is a major key to unlock our destiny that has been ordained before time.

Forgiveness is a key that spiritually releases our future, heals our heart and moves us forward.  The act is to first forgive yourself of what has been done because of “it”.  We tend to always want to blame and look at others from our past.  But because of the pain, there can be harbored anger, sadness, even depression.  This emotional pain and sicknesses can cause us now to demonstrate our lives to others someone that does not really exists.  Some people don’t really know us when we carry these illnesses inside.

Work today to seek forgiveness of self.  You may never see the person that hurt you again in your lifetime. Or, they may never know why you are hurting inside or how “it” affected you. I am defiantly not giving them a pass, but we will find that someone can never give you the goodness that they never had. Make the effort to be your best self. If you forgive someone of what has been done to you, God promises he will forgive you and bless you big!  Nothing and no one is worth not seeing your dreams manifested and your life make impact.  No matter what, always remember that you were created for a reason bigger than you!  Be able to live in that awesomeness and reflect on the outside someone that is healthy, whole and ready to take on the world through the power of forgiveness.
