5 daily pillars that are holding me UP right now

This year, 2018, has brought a bunch of changes for me.  I have made decisions and moves that I hadn't even considered at the end of last year. I have been challenged and uprooted a bit by these changes. AND I'm still feeling, considering, and throwing around ideas and plans for even more changes. To no one's surprise...I'm in a 'Wheel of Fortune' year. [ If you're curious about what cycle of growth for the year you're in shown by the wisdom of tarot--you can find out by scheduling a session with me.  It is one of my favorite tools to use to get a perspective on where you're at and why what's going on is going on.] Right now. My mind is awash with the dreams and schemes AND then it falls into the fear, the 'what-ifs', and 'how is that gonna work'. Argh! Since May I have been immersed in my new job [y'all know I have 'day job' as well, right?]  I am managing people in a whole new environment and learning new duties and responsibilities.  That's has been a handful.  Along with the many challenges of raising up the standards of service and responsibility of the crew there was the added tragedy of one of staff members (and friend) passing away by suicide. It hit the staff really hard, of course. The impact of having this tragedy with a staff so new and the stresses of our work already has made me really show up as a leader.  And in ways that I wouldn't have been in the past.  With compassion and with strength. There are so many threads of information that fed into these moments that supported me and showed me the path for me to follow. One of the most spectacular is that at [...]

just a dust bunny? Or something more?

I love words. I especially love the exploration of words of a different language. What other people call things is intriguing to me. Do you all have this fascination as well? Comment below with your favorite word or phrase from another language. Dust bunnies. You know those little bits of yuck...hair, dust, skin flakes (yikes!) and goodness knows what else, gathering under beds and in dark corners. What a constant nuisance. Can't someone event a dust bunny buster?  Or declare a no gathering zone? I'd love it. Spring is just about here, so Spring Cleaning is on my mind. I am going to dig in and prep and enliven my home for the coming of the light and beauty that the newness Spring brings. There will be dusting, vacuuming, scrubbing, cleaning....and then clearing, smudging, and blessing the energy of the house. Yes, sage will be involved, as well as salt, fire, and water. So, what do you think they call dust bunnies in other places? Here's some info from Wikipedia: In Danish they are called "nullermænd" ("nuller-" from the verb "nulre", meaning to move something between one's fingers, and "-mænd" meaning "men") In Finnish they are called "villakoira" (meaning: wool dog) after the language's nickname for the actual dog breed poodle In French they are called "moutons" (meaning: sheep) In German they are called "Wollmäuse" (meaning: wool mice) In Hungarian they are called "porcica" (meaning: dust cat) In Norwegian they are called "hybelkaniner" (meaning: "lodging bunnies") In Polish they are called "koty" (meaning: cats) In Portuguese they are called "cotão". The Scots word is "oose" In Spanish they are called "pelusa". In Swedish they are called "dammråttor" (meaning: dust rats). Cats, bunnies, rats, sheep...seems like everyone knows of these little guys. Not sure if I understand the Danish 'moving men'...unless [...]

You’re the uniting force

We as Boss Ladies, Mothers, Dreamers, Partners, Friends, Coworkers, Neighbors, Citizens, Creators, Lovers, Warriors, Mystics and Goddesses have a powerful magic available to us.  We all have it.  You, right now have the potential to practice this magic.  And you do have to practice. Are you wondering what this magic is? Here’s a definition of magic I LOVE: The craft of creating change (or a change in consciousness) that is in alignment with you higher self. It's creating change, transformation, learning, growing and overcoming-what ever you want to call it.  It's releasing habits and limiting ways of thinking that are holding you back. How do you know what your Higher Self wants, desires or even knows?  You learn to listen and see the signs of synchronicity and blessing that are saying—“Yup, you’re going the right way.”  You ask to learn and know the next steps, the best choice, the truth that is within and ready to be brought into being.  You are always on the lookout for the signs, the feelings, the gentle nudges that are helping you create a path within and without so that you are living the desires of your Higher Self. Why would I want to do that? So that you grow and learn.  That is what we came here to do.  To create and do on this physical plane.  To overcome past weaknesses, hurts, fears, beliefs and to help others do their work too. So, Boss Lady, are you using your magic to grow your business and your life? Are you checking in with your Higher Self to see if you’re in step and making the leaps to grow and use all your potential? OR Are you not? Are you just trying to survive, to get the basics done, to not rock the boat? How [...]

top 12 energy zapping ways of a boss lady

We all have habits, practices and systems that we fall back on when we get stressed, frustrated or overwhelmed. Hopefully, most of them contribute to bringing us in to balance and health so that we are ready to tackle the next project, but truthfully...many of them just mask the problem.  As boss ladies who want to not only be successful, but also be healthy, strong and passionate for all the other things we dream of doing in our lives and in our biz we need a foundation that reflects our passion, power and purpose.  It should be a foundation that allows you to master your best asset-YOU! Here are the top energy zappers that many boss ladies fall victim to: Over-giving of your time and energy. Not establishing boundaries for you and for your biz.  What's okay, what's not? How much time and when?  How much money? Who to let in? Not honoring these set boundaries.  You have to practice.  No compromises. Not connecting to your inner source (force) for guidance support.  Your energy system, your essence, your intuition and your truth. Not having a ridiculous self-care routine.  Healthy foods, good sleep, relaxation, body and energy care (reiki, meditation, massage, chakra exercises, etc.) Using food, caffeine, drugs, alcohol, shopping, binge TV watching and other not-so-healthy indulgences or addictions to supposedly replenish and return to balance. Feeling overly responsible for others work, process or efforts. Continuing to use practices, systems or products that aren't in alignment with your inner essence, truth and knowing (your inner drop) OR sustainable. Not having a clear image of the passion and purpose of your biz and your role in it. Sacrificing your energy when you know will suffer from it. Ie. Using yourself too much, instead of finding other solutions. Not having a lusciously full [...]

you are ReChargeable!

I believe when your energy body is strong, balanced & supportive you can achieve & go for your dreams with more ease & power.  When your energetic body is strong -- you are as well.   This is the foundation for all I do; in my reiki sessions & in my energetic coaching.   Because you- all of you- needs to be fully aware of the decisions, actions & passions you are wanting.  You can't make powerful decisions with an empty well. Same old road blocks If you are running into the same old road blocks as you try to advance or change, this could be why.  There is some sort of block or lack of understanding of something energetic in your body.  You don't have access to all the info when there are these barriers. This when energy work becomes SO helpful.  It helps in ways that all other forms of 'cures' you may have tried can't.  It just opens you up.  Many times it is in ways that we don't even perceive or know. New tools I'm launching a new workshop of LIVE online videos every Saturday next month-April 2016 to help you to learn to work with your energy system.  It is a fabulous companion to the "Find Your Flashlight" Workbook (available on the website). It's called ReChargeable! I'd love have you join the powerful group that is coming together for these LIVE events.  When we do energy work like this (on our own, but with supported energy of group container) it is SO much more powerful & easier to access deeply.  WooT! Sound intriguing? Get started today for only $7 by purchasing the "Find Your Flashlight" Workbook.  Instantly download & print.  USE this coupon CODE>> ihaveaflashlight for $10 off normal price of $17. You are ReChargeable! I know [...]

Look what I dropped into

Drop In…Expand Out? What in the HEC does that mean? My original intent was to talk about this Tarot spread reading a group I am in did that really struck me deep- and now I know why-it talks about what I talk about all the time that Drop in…Expand out stuff. Whoa! Super cool, interesting coincidence (do you believe coincidences and synchronicities are teachers? I do) So dropping IN. What I mean when I say this is that you drop your awareness down into your belly and really truly feel (feel in your body and soul) how you feel about something. The truth of what is being presented whether it is an inner thing or something outside of you. Is it your intuition? Possibly. Is it your soul? Possibly. Is it your higher self? Possibly. Or all of the above? I don’t really care what you call it. I call it your inner drop. And I want you to connect to it, to live your life from this place in your being. Feel whole, integrated and on track because you know the truth of what is true for you. And you are strong and powerful in that truth. And it is yours and yours only, baby! Check in with it. Drop down inside. Feel. Listen. Ask a question out loud of it. Wait and feel the response- the answer- the feeling and the truth that comes.     And it will come.    It may take practice.    Keep practicing.    Develop ways to hear the answer. (Writing, meditation and oracles are great tools) Okay, so that’s the dropping in (in a nut shell). SO now…what is this expanding OUT stuff? The expanding out stuff IS… what are you going to do with the information that you got from your inner drop? What are you [...]

Are you one of those gas station hot dogs–endlessly rolling…?

Sometimes when a client comes to me-they don't quite have words to describe what or how they are feeling.   So, I was thinking about this today, and you know me and my food obsession (see my 'Year Ahead Workbook' free gift)...so I thought-- what if I asked them to tell me what kinda food or dish they felt like? Of course, I then thought-- What kinda dish do I feel like right now? Not to eat mind you, but the energy of it, the way it makes you feel, the actions to prepare, the flavors, the culture....etc. I decided I feel like a warm comforting bowl of nurturing chicken noodle soup. I feel pretty content, healthy, satisfied, balanced and warm.  So, awesome! But what if you are not feeling awesome?  What if you feel like a frozen microwave dinner? A cold slice of leftover pizza?  A hot dog rolling around endlessly in a hot box...going no where and under stress? I know some exercises, tools and tricks. I have days where I can feel a less than nurtured and comforted--just like you. I learned these tools and ways to easily access them anywhere, anytime. You can do it too! Learning to get back to your center, to be grounded, to feel supported, to know that it is there and how to access it... = p r i c e l e s s I learned to do visualizations to engage my energy system (chakras).  I learned to ground and center using the same techniques.  The more you do them (10-20 minutes a day)  the more easily and instantly you call on them when you really need to get off those hot rollers! These exercises and the knowing of your energy system is not difficult.  All it takes is frequent exercise [...]
