A Giant Dose of Inspiration

by Carol Hess on January 4, 2013

Happy New Year!  We made it!  You know me.  I’m a pretty big believer in the woo-woo (and proud of it!).  I didn’t come to this belief easily.  In fact, I fought it tooth and nail and still do sometimes. One of these days, I will tell you how the story of how and why I transformed […]

The Choice

by Carol Hess on September 12, 2012

As Josie walked from the jet way into the airport terminal, the first thing she heard was the blare of the loudspeakers. “Shoulds, Supposed Tos, and Right Ways to the right.  Heart’s Desires, Soul Songs, and Your Ways to the left.  Make The Choice.” What? “Shoulds, Supposed Tos, and Right Ways to the right.  Heart’s […]

So You Want to Change the World

by Carol Hess on June 5, 2012

Me too. I want to change the world too.  I want to make a difference. It’s scary to say it out loud.  It’s even scarier to write it down for the whole wide world to see (or at least anyone reading this blog post).  But it’s my truth. It’s your truth too, isn’t it? The […]

Your Soul Story – The Journey Begins

by Carol Hess on April 13, 2012

Last week, I talked about your one and only story, your Soul Story.  I said we all shared the same Soul Story.  I also said it was the answer to – well – everything. Abundance, freedom, purpose, love, courage, joy, power, bliss, meaning, serenity, significance – they’re all available to you.  All you have to […]

Are You Kidding?

by Carol Hess on April 11, 2012

Are you kidding, Carol?  Who the hell are you these days?  I don’t recognize you. Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!  That’s the sound of complete and utter frustration with myself. I can’t get out of my own way these days. I’m doing way too much thinking and taking way too little action. And my business is suffering.  My bank […]

The Biggest Killer of Your Dreams

by Carol Hess on March 22, 2012

There are two kinds of settling.  One denies your significance, and one celebrates it.  Which kind of settling are you doing? I spent most of my life doing the first kind of settling, and I don’t recommend it.  I settled for second best when it came to everything.  Actually, now that I think about it, […]

Star Polishing At Its Finest

by Carol Hess on March 9, 2012

(This post is dedicated to the people who held up and keep holding up the mirror. You know who you are.) I’ve been on Christine Kloser’s Transformational Author Retreat since Sunday evening, and it was been nothing short of life-changing.  Really.  There is something so incredibly special about spending time with people who see past […]

Pure Potential

by Carol Hess on January 1, 2012

I love the first day of a new year, don’t you?  It’s so clean and clear and full of pure potential.  Like a snow-covered field before the first footprints or an empty canvas before the first brush stroke or a blank journal before the first written word. You hesitate to take that first step, apply […]

The Race of Your Life

by Carol Hess on December 30, 2011

I can feel it. Even though I’m sitting here in my bathrobe, looking like a chipmunk that’s packed one too many nuts in her cheek, and popping painkillers and antibiotics like candy, I can feel it. Can you? It’s a quickening.  Kind of like that quick little gasp you make when something catches you off […]
