About

Practicing gratitude brings me joy and it is one way I worship God. I appreciate where I am on my life’s journey and I seek the beauty in every season. On some occasions my blogs are me thinking out loud but most of the time I write about life stories that are so good, I have to taste them twice! There will also be some great health and wellness tips! I am a Southern California empty nester who has raised a wonderful daughter, Lindsay, with my husband of thirty three years, Steven. I have been blessed with eight siblings, twenty one nieces and nephews and two great nieces. Before raising a family, I enjoyed an illustrious career spanning several decades in the entertainment industry. This brought me amazing life experiences like performing for the Royal Family of Monaco. 

Currently, I am teaching Yoga and Pilates. Holding fitness certifications from AFAA – Aerobic and Fitness Association of America and NESTA – National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association, I work passionately as a fitness motivator, speaker, writer and instructor.

Additionally, I enjoy singing and dancing. I have continued performing with different bands. I also entertain with my gal pals from the Dean Martin Golddiggers and with my sister, Maria Lauren. Maria and I co-authored the, “Rat Pack Book,” Beyond Our Wildest Dreams.  

Fun Facts About My Past

I entered the professional music scene on local Television and later went on to sing with my sister Maria. Both Maria and I were chosen as members of the singing-dancing group, “The Golddiggers,” Consequently, I regularly appeared on the “Dean Martin Show” and performed on “The Jonathan Winters Show”, “The Mike Douglas Show” and “The Tonight Show.”  I toured with the best of show business ‘royalty’ including, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Steve Lawrence, Edie Gorme, Jerry Vale, Donald O’Connor, Louis Prima and Bob Hope. These accomplished artists gave me an incredible education in music and entertainment.

Later, I put the “The Golddiggers” group on hold, but continued to have a prolific career as a sister act. “The Alberici Sisters” frequently were an opening act for many stars. Jay Leno, Bobby Vinton and Norm Crosby were some of those artists. Along with a singing and recording career, my acting talents brought me the opportunity to guest star on several prime time television shows. For example, I hosted KTTV Channel 11 Bedtime Movie and acted on Denzel Washington’s hit series, “St. Elsewhere” as well as, “Knight Rider”, “Mike Hammer”, “The Dom DeLuise’s Show” and other television productions.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With this abundant life, I praise God for the blessings He put on my path. I reveal my gratitude by giving back to those in need in my family, church and community. I have joyfully served for many years in Christian church music and missions ministries. Pursuing this further, I traveled with my husband, Steven, to Lily of the Valley Children’s Village in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, where we cared for orphans affected by HIV/AIDS. As a result, we helped start a non-profit in the U. S., Lily of the Valley Endeavor (Lily of the Valley AIDS Foundation), to support the children and raise awareness. My husband and I are also involved in other causes that promote Christianity, human rights, education and the arts.

Journey with me and my family as we aim to grow in love through Jesus Christ and improve the lives of individuals with heart felt service in wellness, faith, fitness and entertainment. Welcome!

Open Your Fifth Chakra with Blue Space

Extended Side Angle pose – Utthita Parsvakonasana

I always get a spiritual and mental health boost when I visit the ocean and that’s not just me. A study, co-authored by Michigan State University’s Amber L. Pearson, is the first to find a link between health and the visibility of water, which the researchers call blue space.

“Increased views of blue space is significantly associated with lower levels of psychological distress,” said Pearson, assistant professor of health geography and a member of MSU’s Water Science Network. ¹

The study found that having a view of the ocean was associated with improved mental health.

 

Open your Throat Chakra with the Color Blue 

Associated the color blue, a healthy throat chakra (Fifth Chakra) enables self-expression and speaking with wisdom and honesty. Meditating on the color blue or a blue ocean can help alleviate throat chakra imbalance.

 

Ocean Breath 

Whether you’re on the beach or in a quiet room, you will enjoy the stillness and health benefits of the ocean breath. Ocean Breath; Ujjayi Breath offers gentle stimulation to your larynx and thyroid as well as a chance to slow down and quiet the mind from distracting thoughts. Create a sanctuary within.

How to do ocean breath for the throat chakra – Sit in a comfortable position with your core engaged. Breathe in through the nose and breathe out through the nose. Inhale fully under the diaphragm with your lips closed and relaxed. Exhale with a haaa sound similar to what you would hear if you had your ear up to a conch shell to ‘listen’ to the ocean.

Feel the sensation of the breath touching the back of your throat. Focus on the color blue. Visualize the blue ocean surf ebbing and flowing in time to your breath.

Yoga is as much about breathing, (Pranayama) as it is about postures. Using the Ujjayi breath in your yoga postures can help give you focus and power.

 

“Meditation is not meant to eliminate thoughts. It simply teaches you to direct the mind’s mental traffic” -Leonard Perlmutter

 

Singing and the Fifth Chakra 

Ah, the perfection of gazing at a blue ocean and singing a positive affirmation.

My father taught me this affirmation when I was a child. I loved the way it soothed my soul when he sang it. “I’m healthy, I’m strong, I’m peaceful, I’m loving and I’m happy.” Sing it with me!

 

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. ~ 2 Cor. 12:9
