hope

big dreams. big triggers.

(originally published for the February  2016  of  Sibyl Magazine) I’ve initiated some of the biggest things EVER for my life in 2015. As I write this on the cusp of the New Year I feel all the potential coming. I’ve taken some big steps & some grand leaps to begin to align my life with the greater vision I have for it. And you know what? It is scary. (It’s also secretly amazingly thrilling!) These leaps are triggering all the fear buttons I have—BIG time. But I also feel more potential, more power & more control than ever before. There are the money fears (HUGE), the “who-am-I to do this?” and the “you’ve-never-done-that-before.” And on & on. Worry. Fear. Doubt. Overwhelm. Lack of worthiness. Lack of resources. All of these creep in from time to time. The thing is…I really KNOW that the stuff I’m investing in, creating & pursuing are critical right now to my personal growth & the growth of my business. I KNOW that by challenging myself to create new programs I will serve my clients in deeper ways & with more lasting transformation than the ways I was serving them before. I KNOW that my trip to Egypt & its sacred sites in a couple of weeks will totally expand my spiritual & intuitive capacity. And be, in the truest sense of the word—AWESOME! I KNOW that the investments I’m making in my personal & spiritual education are some of the most important ones I can take. But OH BOY! They trigger every button I have. But even this is a gift, since I’m learning how to come back to my center, be present & TRUST. Before this year I would have never have even attempted the leaps I have. I’d have stopped myself by the [...]

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 [...]

befriend the communicators of vibration

Did you know the Cherokee believe trees to be great communicators of vibration between all things living on the Earth and the Stars?  The White Pine in particular is held very sacred in the Cherokee culture.  They believe it communicates deep vibrations from the Earth into the atmosphere where we become entrained to those sacred vibrations.  They believe the White Pine is a symbol of life and that it can transmute aggression to peace.  I say we call on these pine trees and all trees to aid the Earth and its people to move toward peace. Our beautiful planet Earth is a network of meridians and grids that mirror our physical body. Everything-- plants, trees, seeds, water, people, dogs, insects, radishes have a system of lines of energy--meridians, channels, centers, grids and points of connection and flow.  It is these systems or networks of energy that allow subtle (and powerful) forms of vibration to communicate within and between all things. I love thinking of trees as transmitters of vibration between the Earth, Stars and Us.  So beautiful.  And if you look at the very top of pine trees...they do look like antenna! The Cherokee also have a knowledge of their physical energy system.  They believe that many of the energies flow through their navel.  Sound being a major energy that begins it all.  First there is sound before anything comes into being.  From emptiness to sound.    All of your intentions begin this way.  When you first have an intention--it is super important to state it out loud.  Then gain knowledge around it (wisdom)  and from wisdom to love...or action as I would put it.  You go for it! Possibly we can state our intention for a movement to peace to the trees, calling on them for their assistance in transmitting [...]
