your power is . . .

My power lies in my passion.   I am working with the above affirmation this morning.  It feels amazing.  It draws forth the best parts of me.  I got this from my coach.  Borrowing it, using it, and rocking it. My power lies in my passion. It reminds me of who I am and also, where I want to go. It also helps me help others.  Because that is my passion.  I love to share what I love.  I often tell stories of my delight at a new food [keto-friendly ice creams], what my dog or cats are up to, or how I am learning and growing...for example; my favorite new podcast or book and what I loved about it.  Sharing our passions is what makes us-US.  We can all have the same experience, but we all experience differently.  You create the story you want to hold. I want you lovelies to remember you have power.  In your passions, in your mind, in your body.  You are in charge.  How you experience things is up to you.  How you command your actions, your thoughts, your beliefs, your habits, your reality, even your body...is up to you.  If you don't feel this now...that's okay...try an experiment...try telling yourself a different story. This will change your mindset which will change your reality.  If trying experiments like this are your thing or if they make you curious--you should totally join my secret Facebook group.  It's called 'Tiny Drops to Start a Ripples'.  It's a place where we share resources, practices, celebrations and challenges on the tiny little practices we work on each day to start big ripples in our lives.  I post a quest on there around once a week and we share our thoughts, what is working for us, and big a-ha's [...]

full moon hangover. time to plant new seeds

Full Moon Hangover. Time to rip out the old and to plant new seeds. Yes, I do mean rip it out.  It feels that final to me.  The things that aren't working, that you don't need, the habits/patterns or addictions that you are SO done with... they gotta GO!  BUH-BYE! This is what I am feeling after the Full Moon on Monday.  In addition to being really tired on Tuesday. I had to take a whole day of downtime to realign and get back into my daily mode of operation.  But I don't want to fall back into it totally!!!  I shifted. I'm ready to rip out what's not working.  Yup.  That's me right now. I want to scream what I want on top of a HIGH mountain.  I want to do it dressed as a warrior goddess or like the Mother of Dragons.  Yes.  Like her.  On a mountain top with two huge dragons right beside me.  I am ready to step into what is coming & I claim it.  Anybody who wants to question or dismiss it--well, they will have me and my dragons to deal with. Want to join me in this vision? Why do I feel so strongly about this RIGHT now? Universal energies are totally aligning in ways that are supporting this energy of new truths and new loves right now.  There has been much build up to this- thousands of years, in fact.  I really feel that what we choose to step into, to pursue, to change, to nourish, to love, to grow, to build, to create...this time right here is the best time to go for it.  You can create it.  Believe it. This Leo Full Moon ( & Lunar Eclipse) and an upcoming Solar Eclipse at the New Moon.  It's being called, [...]

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 [...]

stop. heal. be luscious!

We all have those little gremlins lurking in our heads, telling us all that we didn't do or that we screwed up or that we left that out or we just generally suck. What can we do to stop that gremlin?! What can we do to change the wiring in our heads that leads to that tape of negative self-talk playing over and over and over? It is a hard thing to change, especially if it is a regular way of thinking for you.  I fell into it in certain situations and places--UNTIL I decided that I was going to CHANGE! I decided I didn't always want be judging, complaining and whining in my head.  I wanted to have better thoughts. I wanted to have joy in my life.  I wanted to feel as much as joy as I could. So I practiced.  At first it was really hard and I sucked at it.  The gremlins still got me.  Ran me through the ringer.  I kept on that treadmill---playing that same old tape about how bad this is, how that guy is so lazy, how she doesn't do what she is supposed to do, how they keep showing up with the same questions and on and on.  I was complaining about everyone and then about myself.  UGH! Painful.  All of this in my head.  Hurting me. I kept trying, kept practicing and I wrangled up some new ways to trap those gremlins and send them off to Pluto. I changed the tape through silly games.  Guess what?  Silly games, work.  You might laugh.  I might seem shallow.  I might seem focused on the petty, but you know what my games keep me positive and have trained me out of the negative self-talk and complaining habit. So my games, if that [...]

Solstice energy –how to harness it

Solstice is almost here -the mid-point of the year- How are you doing on the goals, plans & dreams you made at the start of 2015? Not only is this an awesome time to celebrate the Sun and the Earth and YOU- but it is a great time to inject all your dreams with NEW vitality and energy to fuel your dreams through the remainder of the year. It is a powerful way to use all the natural energy of the Earth (which is super duper high right now) to reinvigorate, renew and refocus all of your plans, intentions, goals and dreams. I suggest that over the next few days you reflect on all the things you are wanting to bring into your life. Consider all areas.  Use my Free Workbook to go over what you want to toss and what you want to tend.  What you want to grow and what needs be composted.  Possibly you did some of this at the start of the year. Possibly things have changed in your life. Maybe you have bigger dreams than you did at the start of the year, maybe you have gotten off track and need to jump back on. Read through what you wrote, add things, check off things that are accomplished, put checks by items that are in progress, and see and feel how you can invigorate the things that are not yet here. Reflect (#1 way to see where you are) Use the workbook. Take a look at what is going on this year for you--it may have took a turn that you didn't expect. How does that effect the plans you had? Read through the workbook. See if the goals you had then line up with the ones you have now. Just reflect for now. You [...]

a dramatic way of seeing

Just up the road from my house is a shuttered stark barren house. No signs of the past, no hope of the future. Just there. A form without a purpose. Even the yard around it shows no signs of the people or life that happened there. There’s no lingering laughter of the 5th birthday party under the grand tree. The swing set has long been retired. The smells of roast chicken and mashed potatoes with gravy have long dissipated. But does this actually seeing was has come before have to influence the present. What if you saw the potential that is everywhere? What if, by opening up those shuttered windows and shining a new light on what is there you could jump into a new way of being? You’ve been bogged down and thinking it was another way instead of opening up and perceiving with new sight what could be. SEE what you hope for, what can be, what is available, what is there and always has been. It is not that things outside of change. It is what is inside of us and how we see it that changes. You know- you know…you do! Right now –that more is out there. You sense it. You feel it. Sometimes you feel it right down to your bones. You want to connect with that. Sometimes you get close. And right now you feel like it is time to break through and really see what it is that you want. You have this dream, this wish--to change, to be, to do, and to connect. I once felt like I was in that shuttered house. But--I saw it as a beautiful house. I felt like it was sturdy. I felt like it was solid. I didn’t realize the windows were shuttered. I wasn’t [...]

Sit down and dream it out into the world

I am so eager to sit down with the ‘Handcraft Your Year’ 2015 workbook/planner. I was reviewing it, as I haven’t had the time with all the holiday bustle to have a spot of time to dedicate to it. Exciting. I love the project. It is like a craft day, a dream day…a creation day. Love it! I am going to turn on some inspiring and beautiful music, brew some tea and get cozy in front of the fire. Staring at the flames for inspiration and ideas. Dreaming and scheming my 2015 into being. It all has to start somewhere, right? I have last year’s workbook and was looking through it. I did pretty darn well with all the plans and designs for year. Yeah, me! Laying it all down at the beginning of the year is awesome. You have this road map for what it may look like. I take a gander at it at times during the year and see if I am still on track or if I need to adjust. Or sometimes the plan has taken a grand leap. It did last year…but it was still in the realm of my ultimate plan…I just pushed it a little closer (and bigger) into the real world. I love to use color pencils and doodle in mine.  I love to make a vision map (there is one included for you) and set my goals –yearly, daily and monthly. All this is sketched out and provided for you to play and plan with. In the workbook there are questions that are thought provoking and let you reflect on last year and then create and design and dream about the year ahead. It is super fun! There is a section for monthly goals, a color vision map suitable for display, [...]

You want to be a Rock Star, right?

It seems like that it is everyone’s dream-being a Rock Star. But why? Why is this the dream job and lifestyle that people state as the best, the utmost, the peak of success? Why the job of Rock Star is so coveted: • Millions of adoring fans cheer you on every step of the way. • You live full out. (Your persona is YOU….and LOUD!) • You actively shout out what you are passionate about! • Fun and travel are a given. You dance and sing…for a living because you built your dream this way. • Your life and work is an expression of your creativity and passion. • You provide an exciting and lively way for people to connect with you and to have fun. • Your message about who you are is strong and clear. People ‘get’ you. • You are inspiring…and sexy. • You are always focused on your message. • You have a great band to support your message and you. • You let others do the tasks that aren’t your strongest points. Like setting up the equipment and attending to the details. You get the idea! YOU could be doing this in your business and life. Why not? Well, at least until you get thrown out of a few hotel rooms. :/ Look at the list again and see that a change in your attitude and how you strut your stuff can add an infusion of electricity that Rock Stars have. How can you bring a few of these ideas into practice? When customers (or people in relationship with you-even your relationship with yourself) begin to feel this passion, creativity and focus from you…they will be drawn to you. YOU will be their Rock Star! Or be your own Rock Star! For YOU! If I [...]

When being ‘Grounded’ is a good thing!

We know what it means when we were ‘grounded’ as kids—no nothing! No TV, no going over to friends, no movies and none of your favorites. It was a punishment. A way for others (parents) to take some control and to enforce the rules of the household. But this isn’t the type of grounding I am talking about, although they are interesting to compare. One takes away and one gives. So let’s talk about the one that gives! We all have this gift and tool at our disposal we just need to learn how to use it. Grounding is connecting to the Earth and exchanging and sharing energy with hers. This allows you and your energy system to be cleansed and restored. It is like powering up and re-booting your whole energy system. This energy and connection is SO supportive and secure feeling. Energy is all around us. Most of us are unaware of the energy exchange that goes on continuously between us and everything else…and yes, I mean everything! When we are grounded and earth energy is moving through us–it’s like having a warm cozy blanket and favorite fuzzy slippers on. It is an amazing connection and feeling –and you can use it freely and easily. Once you learn the techniques and exercises you can connect easily and exchange supportive energy for you and your energy system.These benefits can be used in stressful or emotional times. When we experience feelings of over-whelm. We may feel like our heart is heavy or our throat constricted or pain in our belly. This is stuck energy and by moving it down into the Earth we can receive her support and loosen that energy from being stagnant. When it is able to move we can work with it more powerfully and receive energy [...]
