Do You Want to Sparkle Every Day?

Do You Want to Sparkle Every Day?

Do you feel a connection to the divinity within you? Are you tapped into your authentic, brilliant, 100% sparkly, never-extinguished self? If not, I’ve got good news for you, my love!

You may not know it, but I give a free gift to the Owning Pink community – the brilliance of your Inner Pilot Light’s wisdom on a platter that lands in your inbox every day. I call it The Daily Flame and it’s chock-full of inspiration.

Want a sneak peak into what thousands of people have been reading every day? Here you go!

Daily Flames To Rock Your World

Everything can change in the blink of an eye.

The love of your life can walk in the door and know in a second that you’re the one. That deal you’ve dreamed of can finally come through.  The cancer can disappear. You can get discovered. The judge can rule in your favor. The pregnancy test can come up positive.  The check can show up in the mail.  You can get that call.

But it will only happen if you believe it can.

Just so you know, I believe, my darling.

Blink blink,

Your Inner Pilot Light


When you’ve nearly lost hope and can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, I will be your hope.

When things don’t go as planned and you’ve lost faith in everything you once believed was true, I will be your faith.

When you doubt the capacity for unconditional love and feel resentment and bitterness seeping in, I will be your love.

So don’t give up, my dear.

Hope, faith, and love are right here within you.


Your Inner Pilot Light


I know the waiting feels like it’s lasting forever, my love. I understand that you wish you could snap your fingers and just know.

I get it. I really do.

But let me tell you a little secret.

Even if I could wave my magic wand, speed up time, and deliver you an answer lickety-split, I wouldn’t – not because I’m a mean little bastard, but because within the waiting lies a precious gift.

When you wait, you get very clear on what you desire and how much you want it. And when you get clear on what you really want, you can manifest anything.


Delivering clarity on a silver platter,

Your Inner Pilot Light


Way back when you were little you said, “I know” when people told you that you were awesome.

Then someone taught you to say “No I’m not.”

But I’ve never forgotten how awesome you really are. So when I tell you you’re a beautiful, brilliant, creative, sexy, lovable, exceptional, friendly, snuggly genius with the perfect figure and a healed body, just say, “Thanks for noticing.”


I know,

Your Inner Pilot Light


Remember that time in your life when you really had it going on, when you were on top of the world and nothing was ever gonna keep you from being the shooting star you knew you were destined to be?

Guess what?

Holy crikey, McFly. We’re hoppin’ in the DeLorean and today is time warp day.

That time is now, and you’re ON FIRE.

Radiating like plutonium,

Your Inner Pilot Light

I absolutely believe in creating one's reality and manifesting the life you dream about...and it all comes about by BELIEVING in yourself and your dreams.

Knowing that each day is brand new and full of possibilities, just explore -- realistically -- your options before striking out. Doesn't hurt, can only help guide you through the day, and renews itself tomorrow. How wonderful is that?

"100% sparkley self"...good grief. Sorry, but I find this article...and most of the articles submitted under the Spirituality be syrupy wastes of time, lacking any spiritual depth. This fluffy bunny spirituality can make some people feel good...but how it has anything to do with actual spiritual development is beyond me.
