Stop Shoulding on Yourself

Many of the people close to me have been experiencing great challenges at this time.  They are struggling with their health, trying to achieve the success they desire, longing for a life partner or just wanting to re-invent their lives.  And some are fairly content, but know that there are changes coming and thus are anxious to get started. Once again I am so aware that this journey of life is not made for us to do alone. Without a support team in place, we feel isolated, alone and, in some cases, hopeless. My intention is that we support each other this year and truly create sustainable community and a sense of ease.

As many of you know, that is why I continue to run workshops that bring people together. One of the best ways I know to create the life that you desire is to connect with other like-minded souls. You do not have to know what it is that you want, you just have to be willing to let go of what is not working and show up to experience new possibilities. This January you have a special opportunity to join me in many diverse workshops including my signature annual VISION 2016: Be the Star in Your Own Life 3 day workshop, and additional shorter workshops at the New York Open Center, Unity of New York and Tournesol Wellness. You can also join me online at the upcoming WhatNow WhatNext Google hangout.

This is a time when the majority of people are making New Year’s Resolutions. Yet, only 8% of people who make resolutions achieve them. Here are some simple things in my video above that you can do to be one of the 8%.

PS: One of my intentions for 2016 is to increase my social media platform so please LIKE my Facebook page and follow me on Twitter or Instagram.

And if you haven’t read it yet, hear is my latest article in The Times of India.

Plus VISION 2016 is only 17 days away!

Make 2016 your most incredible year yet.

The Deep Breath of Calm and Peace

Happy Hanukkah to all my friends who celebrate this wonderful Holiday of Light. For those of you who do not know what this holiday represents, here is the short version. When the Maccabees liberated Jerusalem they wanted to light the Menorah but there was only enough oil to burn for one day. By a miracle it continued to burn for 8 days, until new oil was made available. In memory of this, we light a candle for eight days and eat foods cooked in oil (e.g. potato latkes and jelly donuts).  Even if you do not celebrate this holiday, I want to encourage you to light a candle for peace every day this week. And enjoy the latkes too.



As we move into this holiday season, it is hard not to feel the intensity in the air. People are moving faster and bouncing back and forth between happy excitement and total anxiety and stress. It is important not to get caught up in the collective fear. When we hear disturbing information we become tense and have a hard time communicating in a clear and focused way. It is easy to do what I call “foot in mouth disease.”

Ritual of the Week:

Do not answer your phone on the first ring or answer an email or text immediately. Instead, take a few deep breaths. This will calm your mind and regulate the stress hormones in your body.  You will feel clearer, calmer and make better choices.

A Personal Invitation from Barbara

Let your past teach you, but do not let it define your future. Until you do, you will settle for the outer self that is familiar and you will live an unlived life. Watch this video above to discover how to create a spectacular life in 2016.

Then join me Jan 22-24 for a magical weekend of spiritual practice, art, music and ritual. This year I am going to add some of the practices I learned during my trip to Peru. As always we will do a powerful fire ritual and make amazing vision collages. Sign up here today and get a super savings and for every friend you bring who is new to Vision we will give you $50.

On another note on Nov 11th we celebrate Veteran’s Day in the US. Let’s take a moment of silence to send blessings and gratitude to all the men and women who have served in the US Military.

Also, this week is the Hindu festival of Lights: Diwali. It is a time to celebrate the triumph of light over darkness and to ask the Goddess Lakshmi to bless us with wealth and prosperity.

So this week,  call in your divine prosperity by lighting a candle, or many, and chant this mantra for overall abundance 9, 27, 54 or 108 times.

OM Hreem Shreem Kleem

Maha Lakshmi Namaha 

I look forward to seeing  you at Vision 2016.
