I want to remember how comfortable and easy you walked out to the edge of the diving board, arms outstretched ready to leap into the deep end, completely trusting that you would be supported and lifted up by your own abilities, yes, but also by the lifeguard waiting in the water for you.
I want to remember how proud I felt that you were so willing to do this and how proud you were of yourself. And as I watched you jump, I want to remember the lesson you taught me at that moment...if you could trust that you would be supported and uplifted surely I could trust that truth too.
I have a lot of video footage just sitting on my Mac
and external hard drive waiting for me to do something
with it. Enter Ms. Viv aka Vivienne McMaster and her
fabulous course Montage~a guide to creating soulful videos
And like magic, I'm looking at my videos and finding the
story within it. For this one, I had actually wrote a blog
post earlier this year that spoke to me as being perfect for
this video. Add music and SHAZAM! one of my stories
came to life.
You are the divine romance fully realized
the power of love made flesh.
Your 'spark'...the thing that makes you, 'you'
will never be recreated in exactly the same way.
Cherish your one beautiful life.
Shine like the light of a thousand suns
Now that summer is truly here
there's only one wish that I hold dear
Some time at the beach is what my soul craves
To relax and play and jump in the waves
To South Carolina, Myrtle Beach is where I'd be bound
To enjoy all my favorite summer sights and sounds
A stroll on the boardwalk then I'd take in a quest
But listening to the ocean is what I'd like best
Time for quietly refilling my inner well
Restoration and renewal of every cell
This is my wish, it's as simple as can be
in response to the Wishcast question of Jamie
Intuition Boot Camp starts TODAY! Please come and register without delay!
I think this fairy rhyming spell is finally done
now all that's left to say is Happy Summer Solstice everyone!
One of my goals this year is to get our pictures out of boxes and back into our lives using the simplified scrapbooking system designed by Becky Higgins...I invite you to take a look inside a journey I call Project Past Life
We've started sorting the next box and made a wonderful discovery.
We found some ofﬁcial looking paperwork mixed in with the photos.
When I read it I discovered a piece of history about my Grandmother
that my mom had mentioned to me once or twice but I had never seen
any proof of.
The attending nurse who was at the birth of my grandmother
took it upon herself to name my grandmother Olga Burgess.
Where this name came from no one knows but they didn't like it.
My Great Grandfather had to dictate a letter and have it notorized to say
they did not name her and had been calling her by the name Winifred.
As I'm going through these pictures, I'm starting to think I may need to
ﬁgure out a way to divide them up so each of my kids can have
some of their family history to take with them when they finally
go out on their own.
Project Past Life is turning into quite an amazing journey and
it only promises to get better.
Note: There's still time to sign up for Intuition Boot Camp. It starts on the Summer Solstice next week Wednesday. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Remember when you were a kid and allowed yourself
to wish for things? Let yourself do that today.
Every Christmas season when I was a kid and even
into my early teenage years we'd get a catalogue
from Sears called The Wish Book.
My sister, brother and I would spend hours
pouring over the hundreds of pages of toys,
clothes and neat gadgets, dreaming of having all
the things we were wishing for.
This walk down memory lane was jogged by Jamie's wishcasting question.
Of course it also triggered memories of songs by Pat Benatar and Linkin Park
too but I digress.
We've started house hunting and have looked at ten so far.
Two have potential but each is missing a certain something
a feeling of belonging...for all of us.
So the search continues for a third option.
What belongings do I wish for?
I wish for the sense of belonging to make it
self known for all of us in the houses we've
narrowed down to or in the third option
coming to us.
I wish the move of our belongings from this house
to our home be filled with as much grace and
ease as possible. I wish for them all to fit and
be arranged effortlessly in our new home.
I wish for any new belongings we may need or
want for our new home to be things of quality
and richness that speaks to who we are as
a family and helps create a sanctuary for us
and our guests.
I wish for a sense of belonging in the
neighborhood we move into. I wish for
ease in connecting and getting comfortable
with our new neighbors.
I just wish to belong.
You've reached the point in the past where you would say
'well what's the use? I may as well give up.'
Don't give up. It's not time yet.
Take a deep breath.
Remember who you are right now.
Honor where you are right now.
Then close your eyes and see who you are becoming.
Put that dream into action.
You see other people being successful
and you know that's where you want to be.
What you don't see is the sleepless nights,
the tears, and the struggle they've had to go
through to get there.
Don't give up yet.
Sure you're feeling sadness and frustration.
Get rid of it...it's blocking your way.
Dance it out.
Scream it out
Journal it out
Cry it out
Nap it out
Do whatever it takes...just get it out
Then breathe deeply and listen.Your inner voice will tell you
what you need to do to refocus and get foward momentum back.
You've got this baby girl....as long as you don't give up.
If you'd like support discovering or rediscovering
your inner wise woman voice, Intuition Boot Camp Starts June 20th.
I'll be guiding some adventurous souls through some of the same
processes I still use today to get in touch with my intuition.
I hope you'll join us.
Here I sit, pen in hand, breathing deeply the
cinnamon sweet aroma of chai tea from
my cup. My mind races ahead as I bring
pen to paper.
But my hand remains still.
Where do I even begin?
There is so much in my heart I want
to share with you today.
Like how much I want to tell you about how excited I am to be offering this new
ecourse Intuition Boot Camp and what a difference learning to trust my intuition
and follow it has made in my life.
I want to tell you how I've been where you are now just learning to trust myself
and not sure which way to go or which program or book to choose.
I want you to know when I finally made the initial investment of time,
energy and money has given me so much more in return. I want you to know
which books I found most usefuland that I put this program together in a way
that would have been helpful to the past me.
And I want you to know that as I was working on these materials,
my understanding and relationship with my own intuition grew deeper.
And I wish you were here sharing this tea with me because
I want to look deeply into your eyes and let you know how held
and supported you'll be through the process. You'll be supported by me,
by all of our Ethereal Allies and most importantly by your own beautiful self.
I want to tell you what a wonderful gift this will be for your precious soul.
I want to tell you all of these things but my pen won't move a crossed the
page and my mind is racing.
As I looked around the rooms in my house,
it became clear to me that though I speak of trust
in Goddess to provide for me, I hold on to
stuff just in case I'll need it later.
That 'just in case' thought? It is a fear based stance.
'Just in case' means I don't believe I'll be able to have my needs
met and don't truly trust Goddess' infinite supply of blessings.
This week, I've taken a leap of faith and started to let go
of more stuff with an intention.
By letting go of stuff and simplifying, I consciously create space
for my big dreams to come into my life. As I simplify my surroundings
keeping and maintaining only the things I love most, I consciously open to
all the wishes or anything better in alignment with my highest good to manifest
in my life right now.
With those words driving me, off I went to be really present with these
things to decide whether I keep them out of love or fear. If they are feeding
my fear, I let the go. If I truly love them they stay.
Nothing was spared in this purge...not even craft supplies in the
Magic Emporium or the stuff I still hold onto out of love for my
mom's memory. I can keep the memory of her love shining brightest
in the vast space of my heart.
Some things I've easily put in the donation bag while others, I've shed
fear filled tears over as I let go. The tears were coming from my Inner Critic
being so afraid of letting go. "I love you dearly and this will all be okay"
I assured her as I looked deeply into my eyes.
Funny thing happened as I was doing this.
Coinage started showing up.
With each space cleared, I found all sorts of change.
Each time, I held it up and said 'Thank you, I am one step
closer to the financial freedom I seek."
It's taken several hours over 3 days to get all 4 upstairs rooms clear.
This morning I woke up to bird song at 6:45. I took the opportunity
to walk through these rooms while every one was sleeping. The tears
that stroll down my face today are tears of joy.
Finally the spaciousness and love I feel inside is reflected outside.
It's all starting to Emerge.
