Creativity Takes Courage! Stop Living Small!

As many of you know, I am living in Italy right now.  Not too shabby you say!   I live in the charming, historical city of Vicenza known for the architectural feats of Andrea Palladio (Jefferson modeled many of his architecture after Andrea Palladio’s designs).  It is located in the Northeastern part of the country between Venice and Verona.  It is […]

Cella’s Chat: Gratitude – Can It Really Change Your Life?

Do you realize how gratitude can change your life? How does gratitude promote well-being? I make it a practice to say five things I am grateful for daily. I never could have imagined this simple habit could change my life as it has, bringing positive results in every way. Today I sat for a moment […]

Cella’s Chat: What Does Your Past Reveal?

I have always felt it was important to leave the past exactly where it should be…in the past. However, this weekend I came across some long forgotten, but definitely eye-opening, letters and journals I didn’t even remember I had. As I started to clean out bins of things I could finally let go of, it […]

Cella’s Chat: From Death’s Door to Rebirth, Yes Life IS Worth Living

In my post titled “How Did I Get Here,” I mentioned there was a silver lining, but before the silver lining could be seen, life had to totally shake me up and throw me down.  So, now I had been hit with the horrible word “depression” and I didn’t know what to do with that.  After all, my […]

Cella’s Chat: Is Detoxing for You?

Detoxing or fasting, can be quite controversial. Two years ago I did a five day juice fast – mostly green juices.  I won’t lie, it wasn’t easy to not “chew” food and drink it instead, but it was a great way of jump starting my system and helping my body rid itself of cravings such […]

Cella’s Chat: Manifesting Works, Try It!

As people who know me would attest to, I talk about manifesting all the time. My kids sometimes get a little over mom’s “rah rah” talk because, let’s face it, isn’t it easier to wallow in your stuff than to try to turn your life around?  Turning our lives around takes some work and who […]

Walking Out of the Darkness – A Walk for Suicide Awareness and Prevention

As September is Suicide Awareness month, I thought it was appropriate to “dust” off this blog I wrote two years ago, before I moved to Italy. At that time, I participated in the “Out of the Darkness” walk with both my stepdaughter, Ashley, and my friend and fellow attempt survivor, Renee. This walk is an […]

Cella’s Chat: Meet Estaryia Venus and Join Her in Hawaii to Swim with the Dolphins and Experience Vibrational Sound Healing

Nothing in life is ever coincidental, nothing. Throughout the past few months, the name Estaryia Venus has come up several times.   Comments such as, “Oh, you must meet Estaryia, she is an incredible healer” and “have you been to Estaryia’s workshops?” have become commonplace. We cross the same circles within the holistic, healing realm […]

Cella’s Chat: Meditation – It’s Not for Sissies

Human instinct is to run from the pain.  I get it – who wants to “feel” the pain, but part of healing and spiritual growth is being ok with going deep inside and confronting these feelings.  In order to change and evolve, we have to challenge what is familiar to us and this change often […]

Cella’s Chat: You Are Perfect The Way You Are – There is No Normal!

I was recently asked by someone to attend an NA (Narcotics Anonymous) meeting with them. As a Recovery Coach, I support their recovery and was very glad to attend the meeting.  I do not normally agree to go to meetings with clients, however, this was a family member and my love and support was important to them.
