When it comes to transforming your mind, self-discipline leads to freedom. If you have a judgmental inner critic you can transform it into an accepting inner coach by directing your mind with love.

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day we celebrate the accomplishments of a leader who transformed the minds of millions with the power of love and service to humanity. 

In this week’s blog you’ll discover seven ways to transform your mind.

On January 25th I invite you to join me on a transformational journey called 30 Days to a Balanced Life. This is a life-changing online video course with a yoga practice that also includes two group coaching calls and supportive emails. To learn more go to:


I Am Transforming My Mind

There is a portal in your mind that leads to higher consciousness. It can be accessed through stillness in moments of pure awareness. Meditation, visualization, deep breathing, and journaling are effective ways to transform your mind with love.

Love is the only creative, redemptive, transforming power, in the universe.”

                                                                                    ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.


Focus is power. A mind that is focused in the here and now has the power of a laser beam. It cuts through all the extraneous chatter of the monkey mind related to the past and future so that you can live fully in the present moment where life is happening.

Your body is the temple where your mind can meditate. As you turn inward to the space within you’ll discover inner peace. Transformation is about waking up from the trance of your conditioned mind by quieting its incessant mental narrative.  

Your imagination is that sacred corner of your mind where dreams are made. Worry is the misuse of your imagination and blocks creative thinking. Practice visualization to discipline your mind to focus on what you do want rather than what you don’t want.

Empowering thoughts come from empowering beliefs. You can imprint positive beliefs by combining conscious breathing with uplifting mantras. For example; as you breathe into your heart center say: I am; as you breathe out say: enough. Repeat three times.

Journaling is a way of connecting your mind with your higher self. You can write specific questions to receive answers, get solutions to problems, or you can simply ask: What do I need to know today? When you get out of your head and into your heart, the wisdom of your soul will flow onto the page. 

The brain is a tool for your mind. You can enhance brain function by supporting a healthy gut microbiome. Your gut/brain connection needs to be maintained with fiber-rich, plant-based nutrition that includes bananas, broccoli, blueberries and tempeh. 

Your mind can either take on the role of a judgmental inner critic or an accepting coach. When you discipline your mind to work for you rather than against you, transformation occurs naturally. The power of radical acceptance begins where your inner critic ends. 

With love and light,
