Hi I’m Alice Coaxum, creator of Powerful Positive You. Thanks for stopping by!

We are all in this together.


There is so much negativity in this world. Almost every time you turn on the news or visit news sites online, negativity just pours from your television set and cell phone. Instead of feeling powerful one might be left feeling depressed and powerless.


  • Children are starving when there is more than enough food on this earth for everyone.
  • False religions around the globe are systematically taking advantage of their members to the detriment of their souls.
  • Military as well as innocent civilians are dying in unjust wars centered around greed and money.
  • More money is poured into the prison system than into our schools.
  • Certain groups of people are mistreated, oppressed, unfairly imprisoned and even killed by authorities while other groups of people are catered to based on the color of their skin.
  • People are separated from one another by nationality, color, economic status, religion, politics, neighborhood, sexuality etc.
  • Crime is prevalent. From city to city, state to state and country to country, crime is  way of life for many.
  • People are dying from horrible illnesses caused by some of the products and foods marketed to us.
  • Greed trumps ethics. Many people will do anything for money despite who it hurts.
  • Elderly people are neglected and taken advantage of.
  • Our earth and natural resources aren’t treated with the respect it deserves. Pollution permeates the air and in certain areas our water isn’t even safe to drink.

These things affect the lives of many.

All of this is unfair but it really is life as we know it. Unfortunately most of what we believe to be true is all based on lies. It’s all too easy to be depressed, anxious or ambivalent. Some are so overwhelmed. They want to change the type of world we live in but they just don’t know where to start or the things they’ve tried hasn’t worked and they feel downhearted.

A few ways people tried to deal with the world’s injustices:

  • Protesting.
  • Petitioning.
  • Rioting.
  • Religion
  • Hunger strikes.
  • Separation.
  • Turning a blind eye.
  • Violence.


None of this has worked so far. Yes it has brought awareness, but what has changed as a result? Nothing.

Is there any hope for humanity?



If you’ve landed on this page it’s not a mistake, you were meant to be here right now reading these very words. There are no chance happenings. Everything happens at just the right time.

Maybe you’re fed up with the state that our world is in, and like I, you wish to see change. Maybe you understand that we can recognize and acknowledge the troubles of the world without succumbing to misery and despair. 

To change the world we must start first with ourselves and then inspire others to do the same. One could not logically expect others to change if they are unwilling to change themselves. Change is not always easy. So change of self is where you start and after, as the saying goes, each one teach one.


If each of us on the planet focused on changing ourselves for the better, not harming others and fulfilling our life’s purpose the world as we know it would cease to exist. Everyone would be filled with happiness and love for our fellow man or woman would be in abundance worldwide. 


I created Powerful Positive You to help spread the word about positivity, spiritual truths and the importance of self-love and self-development as well as other important self-help topics. Your spirituality is of the utmost importance. Everything you do or will do is dependent on how you view your spirituality. 

Self-love and positivity are also essential to your well being. Your self-love is also essential to all those whom you have dealings with. If you truly love yourself you won’t do harm to another. How you feel controls your vibrations.

Does this mean that you should ride wildly through life on a unicorn wearing rose colored glasses, oblivious to conditions in the world, loudly singing Kumbaya as you toss glitter behind you? Of course not! But there must be balance. We need to be aware without dwell on life’s negativity.

What if the things that plague us are a little closer than outside of our front door. You don’t have to be stuck in a rut of negativity and despair without an ounce of hope. Maintaining a positive mindset doesn’t mean that you’ll never go through trying times but it does mean that you’ll be more than equipped to deal with them.

You aren’t helpless.

You always have a choice in the matter even if it feels like your life is falling apart. You are powerful enough to determine how your life will go and how you will feel despite all. It is possible to be happy even in the worst of times. 

Sounds crazy right? If everything is going wrong how can one still feel good? I assure you that it’s possible. How you choose to feel is entirely up to you!

Loving yourself will help you to live your best life. Why merely get through life when you can have a fulfilling life as you walk your unique path.

When you truly love yourself and make choices that reflect that through methods such as self-love, meditation, self-development and expanding your mind to learn new information you begin to recognize your own power.

You begin to see just how much influence you truly have over your own life. No matter what is going on in your home or even in the world, you are the key to living the type of life you desire. You have choices.


You alone are responsible for your own life and happiness. How you feel emotionally, about yourself and your life determines the type of life that you’ll have. A negative mindset and feelings lower your vibrational energy, the frequency at which you vibrate.

Everything has a vibration whether lower or higher. When you vibrate lower this draws more negativity towards you. Grow through what you go through instead of allowing life to swallow you whole.

If each and every one of us were to adopt a growth mindset and take a real responsibility for our own life and happiness the results would be amazing. If we all truly knew how powerful we are it would make a huge difference.

A positive mindset coupled with feeling great causes your vibrational energy to increase and in turn, this causes the Universe (God, Source Energy or whichever name you prefer)  to connect you with people, situations, and opportunities matching your current vibration.

This synchronicity enables you to learn what you need to know when you need to know it thus prompting you to take action when necessary.

You are the creator of your own reality and the co-creator of your life!

Having a positive mindset causes one to think before acting and to deal more lovingly with others. This helps the whole planet because just as negativity is contagious so is positivity. However positivity isn’t the only key. Thoughts, knowing your power and action are paramount to your success.

It’s all too easy to just become consumed with negativity if you follow news around the world but what does that really achieve besides the feeling of disconnect from this or that type person. This is exactly the plan and why such a separation exists.

We’re all connected to one another. The idea of separation is only an illusion. At one point I too was caught up in the hype of all the garbage news being pumped at me on a daily basis and I couldn’t share enough of it.

I felt so much hurt for the things that some endure but couldn’t see the bigger picture. No one group of people is any more valuable than any other and all people are being hurt and manipulated in one way or another.

The hurt and pain one causes for someone else comes back to them like a boomerang, but fortunately so does the good. Can you imagine how our world would be with everyone focused on bettering themselves, successfully walking their unique paths and doing no harm to others or our planet in the process?

Could you then imagine those people helping others to productively walk the paths most beneficial to them? That indeed would be a beautiful place.

Love and light as you embark on your life journey,

Alice Coaxum
