The 5 Regets of the Dying

By Linda Dierks | December 12, 2018

Yesterday I reviewed my holiday contact list and crossed off the names of three friends who made their transition this past year. Facing the end of life can bring great clarity and I pass along the work of Bronne Ware, an Australian hospice nurse who shares her patients’ stories in her book, The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.  1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. 2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard. 3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings. 4. I...

Gratitude

By Linda Dierks | November 21, 2018

Gratitude “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”                                                       – Melody Beattie     I am grateful for each of you. From my heart to yours.  – Linda

Speak the Language of Love

By Linda Dierks | November 8, 2018

Express your voice as the language of love. Love is the presence of the Divine and a constant theme throughout all religions. It’s the cornucopia that softens our lives, unites us with one another, quiets our mind and elevates our consciousness. When we embody love we generate the highest earthly frequency and are instantly in Divine presence. When we emanate love we are a magnet for more of the same – more love, more joy, more abundance. You are radiant when you radiate love. Divine love is unconditional and ceaseless. Love erases all fear and doubt. Love is a language...

The Definition of Love

By Linda Dierks | October 25, 2018

When I started this journey of discovery I studied with spiritual leader, author and clairvoyant Ellen Tadd and remember her teaching, “Love is that which nurtures the growth of another.” Asking myself, “Does this nurture my growth?” has been a faithful test for my relationships, jobs, decisions and life-style. Love and nurturing are an interplay of giving and accepting. Are you a good nurturer? You personify love when you to let go of judgement, offer just the right word of support, embrace the higher thought, the gentler path, the kinder solution. Are you an open receiver? When love is offered...

New Awakenings – Renewal at Any Age

By Linda Dierks | October 11, 2018

Lately I’ve been attracting others, like me, who are experiencing new awakenings. People writing, making music and art, leaving relationships that no longer serve them and mentoring others. With many there’s a repeating theme of letting go of alcohol in exchange for more purpose, creativity, restful sleep, mental stability, contentment and spiritual expansion. All stepping into larger versions of themselves. You too can create a playground of imagination and creativity. When you express you set an energetic cycle in motion that returns more creativeness to you. Life is magnified when you dance with this divine energy. Nothing tops the fulfillment...

Honor Your Voice, Expand the Tribe

By Linda Dierks | September 29, 2018

I was overjoyed, honored and downright dumbfounded with this morning’s news that two of my Step Into Your Power programs with Dr. Ruth Anderson on her Walking With Spirit broadcast ranked in the top 10 as the shows most listened to on the International Angels Network. Two of ten! (Catch them here: blogtalkradio.com/internationalangelsnetwork.) A year ago I had no idea I’d be doing radio, publishing articles, posting a blog or writing a book. Who would be interested? But by honoring and expressing my true voice I join thousands of others as a force, part of the momentum that builds greater consciousness, joy and wellness for...

Your Heart is Your Crystal Ball

By Linda Dierks | September 13, 2018

Love and Spirit are synonymous. Take a moment and feel this Godforce within you. Sink into your deep heart and feel the energy of the Divine well up and embrace you in its warm, vibrant glow. This Divine force is the source of endless joy, wellness and abundance, yours for the asking. If you can conceive it, the Universe can deliver it. Plant the seed of your desire in your heart, unite with this Divine force and the Universe says “yes.” Your heart is your crystal ball, the fertile medium where ask meets answer, the creation of what will be....

Step Out of the Current and Into the Flow

By Linda Dierks | August 30, 2018

Are you pushed by the current or pulled by the flow? The current is driven by the external forces of responsibility and shoulds. Flow is following the gentle pull of your inner voice. Our lazy brain loves to cruise on autopilot. I laugh out loud when it finds me trying to unlock my house with my car key clicker, change the TV channel with my cell phone, or the notorious, “Who’s been driving this car!?” Flow comes from your heart and represents newness, freshness, listening to the pull of “more” tugging at our sleeve. Make magic. Step out of the...

More Perks From Your Thoughts!

By Linda Dierks | August 16, 2018

I learned something interesting recently. I’d taken a mindfulness course but never received that “Aha!” moment. It occurred to me that I didn’t experience a shift because I was generally anchored in the Here and Now. It was another one of those connect-the-dots moments when I recognized another perk from my thought-management practice. I let go of the past when I let go of regret for opportunities missed, unmet expectations, self-flagellation for my multitude of sins, forgave those who had harmed me and accepted mistakes as a natural progression to learning. I let go of the future when I let...

The Indelible Spark Within

By Linda Dierks | July 26, 2018

Last week my beloved Uncle Judd passed at the ripe age of 92. He was the consummate slow-moving, dry-witted Vermonter, the model of the George Utley character on the TV Vermont bed and breakfast sitcom, The Newhart Show. It reminds me that we all have a spark of the divine, the Godforce that glows in each of us. It is completely unique having never lived before or will again. It’s the essence of our spirit and the ceaseless two-way interplay with our source. Upon death this spark returns to our creator. Emanating from the heart, this diamond-pure spark is invincible....

The Art of Allowing

By Linda Dierks | July 12, 2018

I was a go, go, do, do, goal-oriented, results-driven, multi-tasking wizard. My father called me the Hurricane Kid. You get the picture. But when I started doing higher-awareness work I discovered a new process that reaped richer results. When I paused I created an energetic opening, a pregnant portal through which Spirit had free reign to express. By allowing and not striving I am telling that divine presence, “I am listening.” Through the art of allowing you create a synchronicity that gently but powerfully flows to you, a positive expectancy that feeds creativity, intuition, opportunities, possibilities and potential that expands...

Body Positive

By Linda Dierks | June 28, 2018

I saw you. You got up this morning, looked in the mirror and told yourself for the 1,000th time how beautiful you are. No? Today you start a new ritual of self-love. How you view your physical self reflects in every aspect of your life. See your unique flavor of beauty. Beauty isn’t just one style; beauty is an attitude that is one-size-fits-all. Scarecrow or snowman, bald or bushy, smooth or wrinkly love the gift by loving the wrapping it came in. Beauty is the light you shine. I recently saw a generously proportioned woman in the supermarket who “owned”...

Joy is My Compass

By Linda Dierks | June 21, 2018

Happy Solstice as the sun starts a new direction. Pray for new directions for our country and the world. “Joy is the most infallible sign of the presence of God.” – note on Stephen Colbert’s desk I turned the corner when I let joy be my compass. And I mean kick-ass joy that continuously bubbles up from my core and becomes part of my every-day life. Joy that makes me grin in the supermarket and sing in the garden. Joy that springs from genuine love of myself, the life I’ve purposely created and my connection to my higher power. Joy...

Step Into Your Power – Walk With a Higher Presence

By Linda Dierks | May 31, 2018

Intellectual, social, creative and spiritual fulfillment are the basic needs of human existence. Since pre-historic man we have expressed spirituality in countless ways that are personal and unique to each of us. I define spirituality as recognizing that I am a being of energy within a greater energetic field. This universal field that I call Spirit is filled with abundance, joy and wellness and is invested in me achieving my best.  Called Quantum Spirituality, it is the union of science and spirituality. This energetic force has a high vibrational frequency. When you incorporate spiritual practices and live by spiritual principles...

Step Into Your Power – Know Yourself

By Linda Dierks | May 1, 2018

I knew that I had stepped into my power and reclaimed my confidence when I no longer felt “less than” anyone regardless of their success, profession or financial status. Knowing I was onto something I scratched my head and got serious about finding out where it came from.  What did I do right? Self-esteem starts with defining who you are.  That sense of self, that radiant pillar of light, flavor, color, and being-ness that is uniquely you. Ask yourself …. When I let go of fitting in what is it about me that rises to the top? What rings sterling and true...

Growing Through Adversity

By Linda Dierks | April 24, 2018

This week I post my article from the March edition of Guide for Spiritual Living: Science of Mind magazine. My sincerest thanks to SOM for welcoming new authors. Finding the Gift in Illness, Adversity & Spirituality  Growing Through Adversity by Linda Dierks Wouldn’t we love our lives to bounce along without a single bump or bruise? We’d gladly live fairy tale lives but the trade-off would be losing those treasured tangles that, in hindsight, brought us the most meaningful rewards, that gift we find when we rise above obstacles and gain greater insight. I refer to those days as the ‘dark ages.’ My...
