honoring our rhythms…

A month ago, I led a retreat.  One of the things we talked about was how we, as women, as humans, are connected to nature & connected to the cosmos, not separate from it (as our modern world would try to convince us of).  Similar to the seasons of nature, the phases of the moon, the orbits of the planets, we too have cycles of up and down, in and out, light and dark.  As I share often, I fight my cycles… make myself wrong for needing/ wanting down time.  Must do more.  Must be productive all the time.  Must constantly be working on my business and what I do in the world.  Must be...

“Each one of us must find peace from within.  And for peace to be real, it must be unaffected by outside circumstances” – Ghandi  There is much bubbling to the surface these days, especially here in the states. Lots of fear, action and reaction, emotion, and a desire to affect change, to be part of the solution, to take Action in Service to the HIGHEST GOOD!!! Ummmm, what IS the highest good?  I’m not sure I know. Yes, I have my ideas of right and wrong that I can list for you here and we all agree there are certain things that just don’t seem human, yet… do we really know...

let go & begin again…

Posted on Nov 18, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on let go & begin again…

Letting go. More layers. Amazed at how much this process of emerging/ becoming/ self realizing is about letting go. Catch & release. Unearth & release. Enjoy & release. Resist, fight & finally surrender. Let more go.   This was important, well now it’s not. These were your ideas, well now they’re not. You believed this, now release it. It seems the leading up to is harder than the actual moments of letting go. The fears – who will I be without this mask, who will I be without that friend, who will I be without that belief to swing around like a sword, who will I be...

wild pendulum swings & energy management…

Posted on Oct 13, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on wild pendulum swings & energy management…

I LOVE THE FALL! This time of the year, I tend to find an internal burst of fresh energy. Something about this particular change of season that really works well with my constitution. Interestingly, this year, I know the boost of energy isn’t just from the switch of seasons.   It has a different quality to it, a smooth, steady and sustainable feeling vs a quick, take advantage of this before it disappears feeling. This year, I’m actually ENJOYING my life more AND I’m working harder than I have in quite awhile.   The work I’ve been doing is personal & purpose related… unearthing...

personal retreat…

Amazing how it happens over and over, the forgetting of my light. As soon as I forget, I fall out of “the flow” – that feeling of everything sailing along, synchronicity after synchronicity happening with my delight in the forefront. A detached compassion for the ups and downs and even a chuckle sometimes when I stumble. I went on a personal retreat recently. A mentor taught on Walking the Path of the Initiate. Beautiful. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone on a retreat of this nature, where there is space built in for nourishment as well as an intention toward growth &...

fear, courage, action…

Posted on Jul 27, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on fear, courage, action…

This path requires courage. This path of stepping out of the boxes we’ve put ourselves in… for whatever reasons – to please others, to win approval, to fit in, because being “this way” is what you’re supposed to do, because we didn’t have any other way modeled for us, because it’s easier to be part of the herd, etc. I have been through massive change in my life. Upon recent reflection, I realize much has been required of me to continually step forward. One of my mentors recently stated that 80% of success (however you define that word) is based on the ability and willingness to not only step...
