Are you lucky in love? Start here: Be Your Most Whole.


You Complete Me ~ A Contemporary Love Letter.

It wasn’t the first time our paths crossed or

the second time our eyes embraced, colliding 

in that moment of “hello” a brilliant

gem unmarred and flawless

an encapsulation of eternity

a striking deed of credentials, as none before        

we merged somewhere at the crossroads of truth

and pain smudging our rose colored vista

spiraling bliss, flowing, free-falling, tethered

transparency speaking volumes upon volumes

the duality of blind truths and contradictions

I ride the ray of wholeness writing love

letters to myself while voyaging back to

the promise of loving you.


Creating Sacred Space :: Clearing Channels To Success with Karin Saldaña.


A couple years back, when I was on a slow-but-steady transition from commercial hair + make-up to my passionate pursuit as an emerging life and business coach, I experienced a bout of mental fog.  My studio/office was in upheaval; too much home-life-business “stuff” overlapping.  It was breaking my creative mojo; the studio space I once loved felt chaotic and claustrophobic.

I’m blessed to have a multitude of über talented rock-solid friends who’ve graced my life. One of them: my dear friend Karin Saldaña. Karin happens to be a kick-ass intuitive space clearer; a seer of epic possibilities pertaining to organizing, repurposing and clearing space.  

As a professional “personal organizer”, Karin has worked with exclusive “A list” clients, entrepreneurs, artists and retirees who are in need of creating usable space and have the desire to shed the excess that’s holding them back. Karin will capably create an environment that is reflective of your soul and devise integrated systems that will allow you to keep it all intact. In certain cases, she can work via Skype.

I sent her a plane ticket and she worked for two days. I’ll tell you, it was worth it.

Clearing space is a sacred act.  It’s about honoring, anchoring and creating space for you; an offering that allows for the sustainable emotional and creative clarity you desire to come to fruition. The power to move mountains…..        

The following is a message and offering from Karin -                                

 “I am not going to tell you it is going to be easy, I’m telling you it is going to be worth it” -Unknown

As we enter into 2013, many of us have set new goals for the year, perhaps to improve our diets, eat clean and healthy, challenge ourselves to train harder or lose weight, the list can go on. I would like to challenge you to take a look around your home.

          *Are you living in a clutter-free space?

          *Do all your personal belongings have a place?

          *Are you able to find items with ease?

          *Do you feel overwhelmed, too tired to prepare your meals and eat better, no desire or              motivation for your workouts?

          *Do you have time to enjoy the things in life that are most important to you?

          *Are you living in your ideal space and happy with how your home feels?

Your home is a reflection of your state of mind, as is your body. One of the biggest challenges with clutter in your home is it blocks growth in your life.  It can also affect your health, career, relationships and your wealth. When we are overwhelmed with “stuff”, our lifestyle starts to suffer. We lose desire and time passes on the things we intended for ourselves. Working as a professional organizer for over 20 plus years, I have experienced with client after client that once the de-clutter begins, their lives shift. The clarity and cleansing they feel in their home begins to shift their personal lives.  Some may make career changes, some may lose weight or some may find love.  Whatever was out of alignment before will begin to attract new beginnings when in alignment.  I believe in starting small, but to START.

An example may be to start in your kitchen, if your goal is to improve your diet and eat cleaner.

          *Take all items out of your cupboards, pantry and shelves, sections at a time.

          *Throw out all expired foods.  More often than not, a client will have three or more of                the same spices. This happens when we are not organized.

          *Toss out old pots and pans that have lost their coatings, replace with new ones that                will make you feel better when you are preparing your healthy meals.

I would like to offer a complimentary consultation by STAGE Personalized Lifestyle Services.

Finding Your North Star :: The Courage To Be Exactly Who You Are


The time for ascension is now. 

Courage: "That quality of mind which shows itself in facing danger without fear or shrinking". ~ Unknown.

What would it take: To step up and out of bounds, outside the realm of personal limitation?

More importantly, how would it feel?

If personal boundaries are a reflection of our inward limitations, what does it say in relation to how we measure our self-worth? The concept that we shrink our dreams proportionately to the size of what we think we deserve or know to be unattainable is us partnering with obscurity… that’s downright asinine.

Biting off on that antiquated system of belief is monumentally disproportionate - your eminence is so much more. 

Sanctity is the ultimate expression of being; that inherent architecture is already in place. Find the spiritual space; allow nature to work its magic. 

We are taught from a young age that we’ll have our “fifteen minutes” - toss that idea, exchange it for a lifetime of grandeur. Your trajectory is on track and in line if you have faith, belief in possibility and are willing to go the extra mile. 

Be the vessel, a perfect work in progressKnow exactly what you’re capable of. It takes nothing short of courage and a warrior like spirit to live this life.

Begin where you are….. find your flow.

Nourishing yourself: What makes you feel Beautiful, Loved + Strong.


“Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face. But you are life and you are the veil.  Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror. But you are eternity and you are the mirror.” ~ Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

Do you know how beautiful you are?

Unwavering self worth is your cornerstone in life. Self-worth creates grounding and allows love to emanate through and around you.  It offers the experience of beauty through wholeness. An abundance of beauty provides a vantage point that enhances fluidity in your present and your future. Living in alignment creates harmonious aspects that allow you to individuate, connect with spirit and be in union with your core essence. 

Actions that can change the way we see ourselves:

* Adopt daily, positive affirmations that nourish your heart, mind and soul. 

* Design a concise mission/vision statement that encourages nurturing belief through visualization and self-actualization.

* Draw beauty through loving action: Infuse it in all you think, say and do.

* Self-valuation exponentially changes how the outside world responds to you, creating favorable opportunities.

* Reject chaos: Release what’s beyond your control. Recognize that discord not assigned to you undermines your spiritual progress and mightiness. 

* Create a healthy spiritual environment: Cocoon and shelter yourself in moments of uncertainty. Surround yourself with people that genuinely love and care for you.

* Be the gatekeeper of your conscious and subconscious mind: Perpetuate naturally occurring positive states of mind by “hanging out” between silence and thought; that’s where your beauty and strength lie.

To beauty, love + strength,


When you bring “It” to life, bring nothing short of your best.


“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
– attributed to an unnamed Hopi elder
Hopi Nation

What qualities do you possess that allow you to shine?

Your being is your birthright; you have a backstage pass to excellence and self expression.

The time is now to define “the why” relative to your time here. No time for short cuts… it’s about showing up and bringing your best, it’s about finding flow and kicking ass. This is not my friend, a life to squander.

The promise in stepping out of the confines of “normalcy” and stepping into personal greatness is that life as you know it will never be the same. It’s your moral imperative to fulfill life to its deepest depth and learn self expression in a way that’s most reflective of your soul.  

Exploring the “Best” of Soul-Full living:

* What creates expansion and what causes you to shrink? Meditate on that. It’s all about ditching the shrinkage.

* Get your hustle on, make haste: access excellence through self-healing, self-love and envisioning a soulful existence.

* A call for greatness is a “calling” to define your life’s “anthem”. Create a personal vision/mission statement. Bring it to fruition in all its glory, say it loud and proud!

* Eliminate obligation that lacks clarity, soul + substance. If it doesn’t resonate, it will not marinate. Scrap outdated contracts with yourself that block your success.

* Resolve to solve – Find the answer: Dig, Delve, then Dip - “aka”, leave it + move on.

* We are a continuum of one another. The choices you make impact those around you; so choose your thoughts and goals with great care. 

* What we fail to complete short changes the larger scope of our essence and potentiality. Do what you say you’re going to do, fulfill your commitments - there is a lesson after each and every one of them.

The end result: You’ll bear witness to inherent magnificence in full bloom.

Setting intention through introspection, reflection and clarity.


Now more than ever, it’s the time to mindfully shift into more of who we are; a core consciousness made and created through clear intention. In this immense era of the feminine, it's a time to be attuned and "show up" in this lifetime.  

Taking first steps toward the redefining of the “you” and the “I” at a Soul level is required for actionable evolution. Only through believing in and accepting of who we are first and foremost, will allow for the universal change that’s sorely needed at this moment.

It begins by living a sentient, less insular life that is reflective of our hearts. This will incrementally not only mend, but restore our faith in ourselves and in humanity.

Every so often we get a glimpse at impermanence, a snapshot of what was or will never be. That’s the incomprehensible paradox of life; the breaking down of the old and antiquated, making way for birthing the new. It’s how we become more of ourselves- that profound catalyst, the glue that binds us.

Wishing You Blessings and Love Always. ~ Tara

Chasing The Dreamcatcher :: 2013 + Beyond - Navigating Your Course.


: Harnessing the power of dreams.

In native culture, the web of a dreamcatcher is believed to harness and allow good dreams to filter through to the individual.

Sleep is a portal to our dreams, a departure from existential life. Prophetic dreams are considered to be the unconscious mind piecing together information that is overlooked throughout consciousness. For those who utilize dreams, this can be a prolific gateway to delve into our future selves.

Where the conscious mind is occupied with mindless chatter and at times doubt, the unequivocal knowing mind is palpably intuitive in a dream state. Accessing the higher mind through our dreams takes repetition and memory, much like building muscle. Learning to transmute their messages in a profoundly meaningful way can reveal our ultimate purpose - lending a sense of peace and direction in career, relationships, your calling.

Symbolic dreams are a potent reflection and release of our inner most world; a synergist to living a balanced four dimensional life of the spiritual, mental, physical and social/emotional; an exaltation of hopes, desires and a soulful existence is a direct reflection of what lies within us and for what is entirely possible.

A great book :: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

* Keep a notepad and pen next to your bed. Write down what you can remember as dreams arise or as thoughts come throughout the day. Remember, they are not necessarily literal.  Reflect upon what they mean to you.

This holiday forward I wish you peace, joy and abundance. I am eternally grateful for your support!

From this moment forward: Everything is waiting for you.


Love :: Faith :: Miracles

Through life there is belief that when things aren’t going our way, the odds may possibly be stacked against us. In these times, situations may evoke past disappointment from the perspective of lack or want. Like an overflowing chalice sitting idly at the alter; just at the time your decision is to receive, its bone dry.

Those blessed with audacious faith in life have a common vision: self valuation (love), impermeable belief (faith) and perseverance (heart). 

Faith is a sentinel that stands watch and shelters the heart center to keep the belief light burning bright.

Life, like mountains, can be tough as hell to ascend, but once you make it the top it feels like a walk in the park.

A reflection from me to you

The world needs what you have to offer. 

We are all significant; deserving in this lifetime to receive and have love radiate all around us. Believe. Open yourself to possibility, to Spirit. Miracles abound everywhere. They will happen to you, they’re happening right now. 

Manifesting your vision: Drawing wisdom through reflection.


A simple exercise of self-exploration.

I’m a big proponent of journaling as a path toward self-visualization + actualization. When your thoughts and ideas are clear, there's a crystallization toward the vision and course that is meant for you.

As you read the following statements and questions, my wish is that you really receive and discern what’s revealed to you. 

Grab a journal or piece of paper, answer these questions as you read along. The questions have an asterisk next to them.

Right now, you are exactly who and where you need to be, you are perfect.

* Write down positive statements that describe what you know to be your most brilliant, inherent gifts. 

Do you know how powerful you are? Really, really think about this concept. 

* What are the gifts that make you feel powerful, allow you to shine and are uniquely yours?

Understand and really believe that you are so much more.

* What aspirations and recurring themes present themselves… what’s on your must do “bucket list”? 

The you that you’re known for is merely a fraction of who you really are. If you truly desire more, there’s abundance waiting for you. Eradicate limiting beliefs, by doing the work required for a whole life of wellness. 

* What old wounds are still present, that have yet to be addressed and may be holding you back? 

There is a synchronistic flow to life; know that what you crave on a soul level is presented in its time. Learn to chart and navigate life, with awareness to what lies on the horizon. 

* Through reflection: the spiritual, mental, physical, emotional – what do you wish to project out into the world? What is your life’s worth?

Learn to live your life from the lens of abundance. Pay reverence to who you are by honoring your existence. Now is the time to draw upon what calls you in a radical, soulful way - a time for reinvention.

Potential meets Desire :: First, start here.


3 Questions To Ask Yourself:

:: How do you want to feel?

:: What do you dream of?

:: Which actionable, incremental steps can be taken right now toward attaining what your heart desires?

If you can successfully answer these three questions, you’re on your way to becoming a magnet for your desire.

To embrace and act upon the potentiality of desire is to fulfill this life’s destiny. Desire is the mechanism and ultimate expression of how you represent yourself and “show up” in this lifetime.

3 Steps To Achieving Your Desire:

:: Practice spiritual activism as a vehicle for faith building, make it part of your daily ritual. Join a community of inspired and supportive individuals that are on a collective journey – this will solidify interconnectedness.

:: Embrace resiliency to push past the “fear factor”.  Fear is the biggest obstacle on our pathway of desire – it is also a man-made trait; understand and know this at a core level.

:: Realize your relevance is part of a much “bigger picture”. By taking action, you'll not only cause a radical shift in your life; but create a positive "ripple effect" in the lives of others. 

Heart : Soul : Courage - Pass it on.
