Christiane Northrup

Christiane Northrup  1949
Illness is often a sign that you need to make an adjustment in your life path.


My body and its condition are a barometer that is always trying to tell me which direction to go for my maximum creativity, health and fulfilment. And, because I’m human, I get off track now and again, but I can always get back on.


True health is only possible when we understand the unity of our minds, emotions, spirits and physical bodies.


Your beliefs are stronger than your genes.

I’m wide awake, need nothing to complete myself.


You don’t have to feel like a wasted space. You’re original, cannot be replaced. If you only knew what the future holds, after a hurricane comes a rainbow. Maybe a reason why all the doors are closed, so you could open one that leads you to the perfect road.

Pleiadians-Barbara Marciniak

Pleiadians-Barbara Marciniak
Everything changes when you start to emit your own frequency rather than absorbing the frequencies around you, when you start imprinting your intent on the Universe rather than receiving an imprint from existence.


It is time for you to make a commitment to create joy, creativity and love for yourself, only then will you benefit others, for if you do not evolve yourself, you do not serve others. By becoming a living example, by following what is in your heart, you show the way for others to follow with courage, what is in their hearts.


Learn to use the material of your own history to show yourself something. Without judgement joyously move through life rather than create soap operas that keep you starring in the same re-runs.


You are living in a time when opportunities for self-empowerment, expanded awareness and spiritual growth appear to be unlimited.


Linda Poindexter

Linda Poindexter
Sometimes you become stronger just by turning around and walking away.

Self Quotes:  R   



Osho Rajneesh

Osho Rajneesh  1931 - 1990
Each person comes into the world with a specific destiny.  He has something to fulfill  some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed.  You are not here accidentally, you are here meaningfully.  There is a purpose behind you. The Whole intends to do something through YOU.


Find ecstasy within yourself.  It is not out there. It is in your innermost flowering.  The one you are looking for is you.


One has just to be oneself. That's my basic message. The moment you accept yourself as you are, all burdens, all mountainous burdens, simply disappear. Then life is a sheer joy, a festival of lights.

Your core, lying deep within you, is what makes you what you are. Some call it the Soul, the Higher Self, the True Self, the Being and so on. The name is unimportant once you realize that you are more than your looks and outward appearance.

Stephen Richards quote: Your core, lying deep within you, is what makes you what you are. Some call it the Soul, the Higher Self, the True Self, the Being and so on.. - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Anthony Robbins

Anthony Robbins  1960
A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.


Begin to live as though your prayers are already answered.


Beliefs are a huge source of power. You can choose what to believe about yourself, and these beliefs will determine the actions you take. The important thing is to choose beliefs that support you and give you hope and energy.

Anthony Robbins quote: Beliefs are a huge source of power. You can choose what to believe about yourself, and these beliefs will determine the actions you take.. - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Anthony Robbins quote: Every problem is a gift.. Without problems we would not grow. - Spiritual Quotes To Live Byself quote

Anthony Robbins

Anthony Robbins  1960
If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.


It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.


It’s what you practice in private that you will be rewarded for in public.


Success is doing what you want to do, when you want, where you want, with whom you want, as much as you want.


The only thing that’s keeping you from getting what you want is the story you keep telling yourself.


There is a force that controls all your decisions. It influences how you think and feel every moment you’re alive. It determines what you will do and what you will not do. It determines how you feel about anything that occurs in your life. That force is your beliefs.


To make profound changes in your life, you need either inspiration or desperation.


Your past does not equal your future.


Francois de la Rochefoucauld

Francois de la Rochefoucauld  1613 - 1680
