Midlife Messages:

“Letting your True Colors Shine”

Are you looking for a new perspective on Midlife

& ideas about Aging Gracefully?

Our Logo is the  Dragonfly pictured above- It doesn’t get its True Colors until maturity. YOU CAN TOO. Midlife doesn’t have to be a crisis and Aging doesn’t have to mean decline. Spiritually speaking, this time of your life can be the greatest opportunity for spiritual growth.

Based on Universal Spiritual Principles, you’ll discover your own inner knowing and begin to have a greater appreciation of anything you are currently going through – whether it’s the midlife transition itself or the physical changes and psychological experiences that accompany the aging process. We can let go of the fear of aging and the fear of death itself. We let our true colors shine when we totally accept life JUST AS IT IS and JUST AS IT IS NOT.

 Ruth    “I want to express to you how grateful I am for your incredible personal coaching of me for over a two year period. Your insight, knowledge, sensitivity and intuition are amazing! All of those times I met with you and thought I was stuck and there was no answers, you would have the uncanny knack of just asking a few simple questions that would zing to the heart of the issues, allowing me to self discover, gain clarity and grow beyond my own stuck situations.
     It is evident that you have studied and read extensively and rigorously and have been a lifelong student in spiritual growth, yet your true gift is your innate love, compassion and your accomplished communication that has allowed you to provide to me insight and clarity that may have taken many more years for me to unravel.  I am so very grateful to know you and have had you as my spiritual coach.”

    I just need encouragement to figure out who I am. I have been going through the aftermath of an affair by my husband and have figured out that I really don’t know me.

  2. Toni

    Feel free to call me and perhaps we can set up a mentoring arrangement.
    My gift is helping people discover their true self. Sounds like it could help right now.

  3. spouse having an affair

    When it comes to extramarital affairs, a lot of time and energy is needed to work through the initial emotions. The emotional blocks at the beginning of knowing the affair has to be addressed with lots of maturity and tolerance. And to end up making the relationship a lot better after the extramarital relationship is possible but it takes a large amount of commitment and effort towards the partner.
    Have a good day.

    Hello Toni:-) I plan to purchase your latest book. “What You Really Want, Wants You. I came across another fascinating work of yours, “Recognition, The Quality Way,” and it’s my new “Jonathan Livingston Seagull.” There’s an amazing thread of spirituality that underlines your writing. I only had to read several sentences to see and feel it. It’s one of the most comprehensive works on the subject I’ve read to date…and perhaps ever will read. I would love to refer readers to your site who happen across my humble blog. .. I would also love to interview you if possible. Your story needs to be told and seekers need to be aware of your work. However, you belong to the world now and not all things are meant to be:-)

    Wishing you the best on the long journey home.

    Thanks, Kelvin. Go to to purchase the book –
    You’ll also find lots of inspiration there as well.
    I’m awed to be compared with Jonathan Livingston Seagull.

    Let me know more about the interview you’d like.
    I don’t do much with corporations anymore. But, I have LOTS I can share.

    I live in Sarasota and wondered if you currently have any seminars that I could sign up for in this area. I read your book “what you really want, wants you”. I want to know more! Do you have a church here in Sarasota that I could attend? Have you written any other books that I could read
