Command Your Own Ship

A few days ago, I had a huge insight while navigating the subconscious patterns of my past so that I can remedy them and not take them into my future.

Navigating and over-writing the past is essential to creating a joy-filled life.

I came to see that throughout my lifetime I had been deferring my own greatness to other people.  For example, I conceded to teachers and adults growing up, because that’s what I was expected to do. There was no concept of self-respect or self-honor in my upbringing, only respecting men and my elders. As I got older my deference turned to those with more experience and education than I had, rather than seeing the value of my own experience. Even in my businesses, I deferred to employees, co-workers and partners because I saw the value in what they brought to the table, over my own value.

In my moment of introspecting I came to see that my last business partner didn’t make me feel small or like an employee. That was a story I had been telling myself.  The issue wasn’t her, it was me. it was that I didn’t hold myself up as her equal. My big “aha” was that she brought the money, but I brought the experience. I ran the entire show. She was a silent partner but, in my head, at the time, she wasn’t silent.  She didn’t make me feel less about myself, feeling less-than is what I made of her.

Along with this came the knowing that I am the commander of my ship. I used to say that I am the captain of my vessel, but then I realized that I was standing in a little dingy.  It’s easy to stand alone in a little boat and not get very far and sometimes that little boat just goes around in circles.

Commanding a ship requires self-trust, self-respect and self-honor, and it requires holding yourself in high-esteem. 

It requires knowing that you chart the course and what others bring to the table is of no greater value than what you bring to the table. They are your support team, your officers and deck hands. The ship won’t run without the entire team but taking the bow and charting the course takes inner-knowing that you have earned your place at the helm and you are the commander.

Have the fortitude to set your course, free of doubt, and know the resources will come to support you. The resources will come from wherever they come, and you need to stand tall in who you are, rather than defer your own greatness to those who appear to have more.

Remember, it isn’t about them, it’s about you.

It’s about each of us standing boldly in who we are. It’s about valuing our own gifts, education and experiences and seeing what we bring to the table as invaluable and worthy of investment.

Becoming Willful

Willfulness is the same as tenacity. Why would anyone want to break that?

When I was a young child I was told that I had a strong will and that my will and spirit needed to be broken. By breaking my will it disconnected me from Spirit. Willfulness is inborn leadership and when cultivated with love can create apparent miracles. Repairing the strong will to its fullness is a process, especially if the fractured ego feels threatened. It’s scary out there…

Today’s message Dear One is a message on willfulness. Many children were taught to believe that their will and spirit needed to be broken. Some, now very few, still believe that children need to have hell beaten out of them. This is a great misunderstanding that willfulness is a curse. Your strong-will and free-spirit were seen as weaknesses rather than strengths, especially as a little girt who was expected to be lady-like – quiet, subdued, sweet and demure. This was not you and never meant to be. You ruffled feathers and caused adults around you to feel threatened and insecure with themselves. They saw your strong-will, your willfulness, as rebellion and out-of-control. Strong will is a gift. It is an inborn gift of leadership and when cultivated in love can create apparent miracles. A strong-willed child, a highly spirited child, is one who has great potential for leadership, as spiritedness is contagious. A strong will is connected to the greater will – the big will – the universal will. A strong will has the capacity to move the universe on its behalf and shake up the status quo. It pushes forward beyond pre-set limitations into the great unknown. It has persistent and limitless faith in possibilities. It is so powerful that even a fractured ego feels safe in its presence. The strongest wills don’t even need to push, they simply ask, and doors are opened. It is more than asking and wanting as those come from a position of lack. A strong will comes from a place of knowing, without doubt, that what it desires is possible. It is the great Spirit embodied as you with the ability to move mountains. You know when the broken will became lodged in your body. Now, finish the work of repairing it and watch the miracles unfold on your behalf. Your will is God’s will as you cannot separate yourself from God. Willfulness is tenacity. It is time to fully own your spiritually driven tenacity.

Several years ago as I was attending Spiritual Psychology school, Mary, our instructor, mentioned that issues with The Will, tend to be lodged in the neck. This would come as no surprise for many of us who experienced neck related trauma in our past-lives for being women of our own will. They called us witches… Many women still have issues with their throat chakras from speaking their truth and are still afraid to come out of their spiritual closet because of their soulular memories.

For me, the trauma to my will extended into this lifetime and it took me nearly 50 years to get to the root of it. After being treated for neck pain for much of my life I finally correlated to how my broken-will became lodged in my body. When I was four years old, right about the time I started to integrate the message from church and my parents that my will and spirit needed to be broken, I had a terrible fall. This fall put me in the hospital for a month with a broken leg and in a traction device. After a few months it appeared everything healed up perfectly, but what didn’t heal in perfect alignment began to manifest years later.

Pain is the body’s way of getting our attention, and for me, the pain in my neck, which is much better now, is evidence that restoring my will to its fullest capacity is necessary for liberating my soul’s full potential through me.

What about you? Did you have a will-breaking experience in this or a past lifetime that needs healing and resolution?

#It’s time to take back your will and unleash the true nature of your tenacity. 

Until next time, Be Bold, Be Fearless & Be Free!

The Polygamist’s Daughter

A long time ago and a world away, I started writing The Polygamist’s Daughter.

It was a book about growing up in the polygamist cult of my childhood. The name of the book changed several times over the years of writing and re-writing as I grew and came to understand the story from my more mature and enlightened perspective.  Perhaps I become complacent, knowing that I owned the name and domain and never imagined anyone else would step on my Polygamist’s Daughter toes.

Several years ago I did a test run of my book and it sold like hotcakes during the test launch. I pulled it off the market because it wasn’t up to my standard. It needed the hand of an exceptional editor that could polish it from my work-of-heart to a work-of-art.  Just publishing a book for the sake of being a published author wasn’t enough. I already have one fabulous book on the market and I know the painstaking process of writing a book worthy of the masses. I wanted to make sure that what I shared with the world wasn’t just another story of polygamy, but a book that shifted perspectives and awareness.

The polygamist’s Daughter is my work-of-heart and that’s what I’m now sharing with you. 

FLY FLY AWAY COVER 2018-1.jpgThe Polygamist’s Daughter book, with a more provocative name and subtitle will be published later this year. Fly, Fly Away: From the Prisons of Polygamy to the Freedom of Deep Truth is my story of enduring the insult to my soul and learning to trust my own inner voice as it guided me out of my predestined life and into the world of my own creation. (Final cover still in design process.)

Self-trust is the greatest trust of all. 

I’ve decided to use this blog space over the coming months, while my book is being polished and perfected, to share snippets of the book as I move through its final rendering. Stay tuned as I share bits and pieces with you and keep you posted as the official launch date arrives.

I am also re-launching Transcending Fear as a second edition with one more principle and expanded story. I will be sharing tidbits on this blog as well as I get closer to the publishing date.

None of it does any good sitting on my computer when all of it is meant to be of maximum service to humanity!

If you haven’t signed up to be on my mailing list, just jump to the home page, pickup your free gift and sign up to receive my insights newsletter. This way you can stay up to date as the launch dates approach for these two books, along with others that are in process.

Until next time, be Fearless, Fabulous and Free!

Why Visioning Doesn’t Work

I’ve been feeling a tug to start my own party.

Several years ago I had a talk with my future-self and asked, looking back, who I was. What came through were the words, “Books on Film” to the 80s tune, Girls on Film. Yes, I’m dating myself…When I asked myself what that meant, the response was, “books, events, films.” I knew in that moment, somewhere down the road, this was my bigger purpose.

For the past few years I’ve wanted to step into greater leadership and move beyond my own teaching into creating something much bigger than myself as a solo-mompreneur. I’ve been feeling an inner urging to move beyond telling my own story, and help others tell theirs.

In January of this year I kept hearing my internal voice saying, “it’s time to start your own party.” This isn’t about a political party – let’s get that clear. This is about publishing, event management and film projects that create a win/win/win. Over the summer I took a break to just be and consider the inspiration that moved through me. During this quiet time I became more clear on what’s next and and how to structure it.

What culminated during my introspection is the next big thing in greater service to all of you.

My kids went back to school a few days ago and it’s now time to get back to work. As I sat a few mornings ago during my quiet “me” time, before the rest of the house awoke, this is the message that came through:

“Take the bull by the horns, so to speak, and get things done.

It is less about being done as it is about swift, decisive, inspired action. Decide – cut off. You are the decision maker and you control time by the choices you make. No active decisions and time slips by. Acting without specific intent and you find yourself wondering where the time went.

You are the Universe manifested as you.

attraction_is_actionAll of it is at your command. You are the wizard and the sorceress. You decide and the universe complies. It is that simple.

Set your decision into motion and all the working parts come together. This is the case in all things. Those who decide, succeed. They don’t doubt. They believe and do. That is what faith is. A person’s morality has nothing to do with it.

Stop overthinking the process and just do it. Start in the direction and the universe complies. It isn’t about the amount of action you take but your active moving in the direction of your desire. The Universe meets you at your point of action and provides additional opportunities for you to act upon. It’s always your choice whether to act upon inspiration and opportunity. The Universe supplies – it’s up to you to see and to act.

Organize, have a plan, and visualize the outcome. While visioning is vitally important, vision without action is futile. The universe can only comply to the degree of action you are willing to take. Your action sets it all into motion and solidifies your intent.

Action without vision is mindless doing. Vision without action is wishful thinking.

Now is the time to move into action and show the world, and yourself, the greatness that has always been within you. Take the bull by the horns and run with it. Now is the time for the ride of your life.

So be it.”

This was a message I really needed to hear. I’ve spent way too much time in my life visioning the outcome and hoping that it will all just fall together like magic. But the magic doesn’t happen without action. It requires my action and the actions of others. Without action, there is no movement and ideas become stale.

As I’ve said before, half of the word “attraction” is action. I can’t help but wonder how many of people look at the Law of Attraction and apply wishful thinking, then wonder why the thing they desire doesn’t manifest. If you want to make your dreams come true, you can’t wait around for someone else to act for you. You are the only one who sets your dream into motion.

Belief combined with action creates reality – in other words, faith without works is dead.

Are You Afraid of Money?

I know the idea of being afraid of money sounds ludicrous from a logical perspective, but I can’t help but wonder how many people have a fear of money, lurking just under the surface.

That was me a few years ago. Money, although not really a bad word, actually triggered me a bit. The word itself made me just uncomfortable enough that I couldn’t say it without a little inner cringe.  Instead I used words like, “abundance” or “prosperity” to make me feel more comfortable around the subject of money. Although I didn’t see money as a monster, in a way, that’s exactly what it was. When I started digging deeper into my beliefs around money I found a boat-load of them and they were all bound by fear. No wonder I kept finding unconscious ways to sabotage myself every time I go close to “making it big.”

fear-of-moneyNow I find myself teaching workshops and programs on money and self-worth. I see how much damage the fear of money has created on our planet and now I teach others how to see money though they eyes of love.

In pondering on money a few days ago, these are several messages that came through:

“Money comes and appears in many forms and it is vital that you see it all with gratitude. Clean up the money clutter that dams your flow and you will surprise yourself how easily it will come to you. Focus on the clearing of any clutter, mentally and financially, that blocks your free flow. Clean up any messes you have made. No “buts,” as they too are dams to what you want. Everything you seek to fulfill your higher purpose is already on its way to you. You simply need to un-damn its flow. Release any and all blocks, de-clutter your physical and metaphysical house and watch all that you desire flow to and through you with greater grace and ease. You have released all contracts of poverty from your younger years and now success, physical and financial, yearns to flow through you if you will let it. You heard me, money wants to flow through you. As energy, it wants to flow though you as easily as water, air, electricity and love. Money wants to flow through you as prosperity is encoded into the DNA of all things. Release any and all energy blocks and see what magic occurs. All things are created to flow with prosperity in its energetic veins. As are you!

This came the following day:

“This morning we are continuing on this concept of money. Money is energy. It is the physical, and now becoming less and less physical, as it returns to its original form of the energy of ex-change. It is merely  a physical symbol for gratitude and giving. The issue is that some have hoarded it and attempted to dam it from others. Just as there are some who have attempted to dam all other resources to withhold it for themselves. Eventually those who hoard too much, lose what they have, as the dams can only hold so much or the dam breaks and the flow returned to the people. If it were possible to control air and sunlight, they would, and there are those who have tried. This is not a judgement, simply a reflection of the human condition when the heart has a heart-condition. The cause of the condition is fear, which then becomes greed and the belief of win/lose. None of this is true of course, as the way of Earth and all of the Universe is abundance. Growth and prosperity is the one guarantee that exists in all things. It may not always look that way as the cycles of feast or famine are played out and yet, they are cycles. No one has ever needed to steal from another. Cooperation is the driving force behind human evolution – not competition. Human being’s ability to work together ensures survival of the species. That is why so many of you now are being called and compelled to cooperate. As your world hangs in the balance, this co-operation will take you into the next phase of your collective evolution. Yes, it will still include money – money infused with a higher vibration that re-balances the field and makes all things possible. Clear your money clutter and release your damns – mental, emotional, spiritual and physical, so that this new money can flow to you with ease. “

Yes, I spelled the words correctly, as they came to me. Some of this is a play on words, what is often referred to as the alchemy of language.  When we damn anything we also dam it. Any time we speak badly, or more precisely, poorly about money, we damn it, and as such we dam its flow. Anytime we damn someones else who has money,  we dam ourselves from having more of it. Anytime we see money as a cause of evil, rather than a tool for transformation, we dam our own flow. Anytime we complain about what we don’t  have, we are telling the universe to give us more of what we don’t have. The universe is abundant in all things, even those tings we don’t want.

Unconscious fear-based belief about money can be hazardous to one’s health, well-being and ability to be of greater service. It is impossible to give what you don’t have. Those who have any part of them that is resistant to having money and seeing money through the eyes of love, may be damning money and damning their own flow.

If you hear or see the word money, and feel uneasy about how the word resonates within you, check your beliefs. They might surprise you.

Easter, Paganism & Christianity

Easter for me is radically different than it is for many people I suspect. When I was a little girl in the very fundamentalist cult, we didn’t celebrate pagan holidays which included Christmas and Easter. Pagan was synonymous with evil in my parent’s eyes.

After I left home I let go of any religious affiliation of any kind and eventually found my own truth.

The so-called Pagan holidays have a new meaning for me. In my new awareness, Easter is a celebration the resurrection of life. It is a celebration of life renewing itself as it does each spring. It is a celebration of the magic of renewal as life rises from the darkness and into the light. It is a celebration of the Divine Feminine resurrecting life through all things. This has been the celebration since the time when humans first made the correlation between the phases of the sun and the moon and life sprouting from the earth.

eostreFor those of you who like to dig into the evolution of belief, one of my favorite subjects, Eostre is the Germanic Goddess of Spring. Also known as Ostara or Eastre, She gave Her name to the Christian festival of Easter (which is an older Pagan festival appropriated by the Church), whose timing is still dictated by the Moon. Modern pagans celebrate Her festival on the Vernal Equinox, usually around March 21, the first day of Spring. Christianity celebrates it on the first Sunday after the first full moon, following the spring equinox – that’s about as Pagan as one can get.

Eostre is connected with renewal and fertility. Eggs and rabbits are sacred to Her, as is the full moon, since the ancients saw in its markings the image of a rabbit or hare. She is also a dawn goddess, and may be related to the Greek Goddess of the dawn Eos. She is shown here at dawn, quickening the land, while the full moon sets behind Her.  (image by Thalia Took)

It is no coincidence that the Christian church chose this time of year to celebrate rising of Jesus from the darkness of death in the cycle of life, or that his people celebrated the passing over of death for a second chance at life in their Passover traditions.

All of it celebrates one thing and that one thing is gratitude for life and its renewal.

Spring is life renewing itself as it strives to flourish and thrive. I wish you a very Happy and Abundant Spring!

Is Your Religion Enabling Abuse?

Yesterday a student of mine asked, “What is the same between Forgiving someone for abuse, and being an Enabler of abuse: “Forgive is to: absolve, remit, cease to resent, excuse.” “Enable is to: allow, permit, excuse.” Both of them ‘Excuse’ the Behavior.”

One of the issues I see with many belief systems is not understanding the difference between forgiveness and enabling. Telling someone that they need to forgive those who are wounding them, as they are still suffering, only propagates more suffering. Forgiving someone in the midst of the abuse only enables them to continue to harm. Forgiveness is part of the healing process after the harm is no longer being inflicted, and is based in self-honor. Enabling is dishonoring of all concerned.

There is a huge difference between the two. Forgiveness is after the fact as a part if your own healing. Enabling is allowing it to continue to happen.

Genuine forgiveness only occurs after the trauma has ended and after going through the grieving process. It is sourced from self-love. Saying that you forgive someone while they continue to hurt you is simply lip-service and is based in fear and beliefs of unworthiness. It is simply sweeping the issue under the rug until it surfaces again. Fear, and the need for acceptance, propagates the cycle of abuse. Yes, many of our belief systems don’t understand what forgiveness really is and therefor are enablers of suffering. Real forgiveness only comes from deep understanding and final resolution. 

As I pondered on this further this afternoon, this is the message that came through.

“The real genuine forgiveness Dear Ones that you all seek stems from love. It is based in the understanding that all beings are worthy of love and understanding and that only those who are hurting and feeling unloved, hurt others. There really is no evil in your world, only misalignment from love. That which you call evil stems from the spiritually immature who cannot see love within themselves and cannot see it as their own true essence. As such, they really do not know what they do. Yes, from logical perspective they “should” know better and reasoning can tell them so. And yet, the delicate human mind often acts without reason as it desperately searches for the one thing it wants most, love. Ultimately that coming home to love is the reason you chose the human experience. You wanted to prove to yourselves that you could find your way home. Not to heaven after you die but to heaven within your selves. Each of you were born with it as the essence of who you are. The real challenge is to find it again, to be able to say at the end of your human experience, I found God, Spirit, Christ, Peace, Heaven, Love… within myself and shared it forward and thus I fulfilled my purpose for being. Understand Dear Ones that every being is seeking exactly the same thing. They are all facing their own individual struggles to find their loving essence, to know, feel and be love. When you come to really understand this truth and see that you are worthy of love, as you are love itself embodied as you, then forgiveness becomes an already given. So be it!”

One of the issues I see with many belief systems is not understanding the difference between forgiveness and enabling.

Telling someone that they need to forgive those who are wounding them, as they are still suffering, only propagates more suffering. Forgiving someone in the midst of the abuse only enables them to continue to harm. Forgiveness is part of the healing process after the harm is no longer being inflicted, and is based in honor, which is based in love. Enabling is dishonoring of all concerned. As long as the enabler continues to profess that the trauma is forgiven, and the aggressor continue the action, there will always be victim and perpetrator. The perceived victim needs to recognize within herself that she is worthy of love, that she is worthy of honor and that she is worthy of respect. In owning her worthiness she no longer tolerates the actions placed against her and in her self-honor she creates a space for the perpetrator to heal his own cycle of trauma. In other words, by no longer tolerating the abuse, they both get closer to peace within themselves.

This holds true for humanity as a whole.

Resistance Is Futile

There is so much happening in the world right now that sometimes it can feel a bit overwhelming. All of it depends on which side of the kaleidoscope each of us are choosing to look through. koliedescopeLooking through the wide lends, backward through to the eyepiece, there is only one limiting perspective. This limited perspective is often the viewpoint of those around the viewer and many times based on outmoded beliefs that don’t really serve anyone. Many people simply can’t see any other perspective because that one-way aligns with what they have always believed. The idea of believing something new often creates inner-chaos. This inner-chaos is what psychologists refer to as Cognitive Dissonance. Those who are open-minded enough to understand that their limiting beliefs may not be in alignment with their greatest good, have no trouble turning the kaleidoscope around and seeing the beauty of multiple perspectives.

This morning, as I spent time at the gym giving my body it’s much needed exercise, the concept of seeing resistance from multiple perspectives came through. The #Resist movement is gaining momentum for the movers and the shakers who are using this time to move humanity forward and shake up the status quo. Aka, free humanity from the controls of fear and patriarchy so that we can all live together in balance and harmony. Ultimately, that is what we all seek, whether we realize it or not.

What came through in my questioning was a multiple perspective of resistance and the energy needed to create the world we all say we desire. For those who are a follower of Abraham, this is especially juicy.

“As our Dear One Abraham teaches and many spiritual teachers understand, what you resist persists. Resistance as a form of fighting against. Againstness has never solved anything. Againstness only keeps you stuck in the very thing you resist. As long has your focus is on what you don’t want, you will get more of the same, simply because that is all that you can see. Resisting what you don’t want causes a force to constrain you and as such, resistance is futile. In your againstness and resistance you are pulled back and assimilated into the fear, the very thing you are attempting to fight against. Imagine that you are a rubber-band, pulling away from what you resist. This pulling away from, resistance, can only holdup for so long before it swings backward, into the very thing you are attempting to pull yourself from. If your focus is on what is behind you, fighting against becomes exhausting. If you are able to change your focus from what you are against, and rather resistance is futilemaintain your holding pattern, this allows you to then persist forward. Rather than fighting against, you can resist being assimilated by holding in your truth and resilience while looking forward. This holding stance gives you the ability to refuse being assimilated while not fighting against the old consciousness. Holding in neutrality than allows you to focus on what you want without being pulled back and out of shape as you lose yourself in the fear. From neutrality you are able to tap into the persistence necessary to push forward. Push forward long enough and the pulling of the past has no choice but to eventually let go and propel you forward. Persistence is powered by love and is far more powerful than resistance which is forced by fear. This isn’t to say of course that you turn blindly the other way so that you cannot see what is behind you. Looking in the rear view mirror as you progress forward is a safety check and a measure for how far you have come. Persist rather than resist is the consciousness that is necessary to create permanent forward movement. Decline to be assimilated and pulled backward, hold yourself with grace and dignity, and move forward with conscious action into the desired future that serves all life on earth, rather than the few who see themselves as being above all others. Persist, rather than resist, is the focus that you seek.”

I asked once why Yeshuah (the teacher many call Jesus) used metaphors and why the Divine Feminine speaks to me in metaphors. She replied that metaphors and stories allow human beings to understand what is being taught from the perspective of where they presently are. One of the issues with our religiosities is that many teachers are metaphoretelling people what to think based on where the teacher is, rather than creating a space for students to learn and understand based on where the student is. Some are regurgitating hand-me-down teachings, rather than asking for a new understanding based on where we presently are. Being unable to see from a new perspective, multiple perspectives, is why humanity is stuck where it is. We simply cannot move into our next phase of our collective evolution as long as we focus on the past.

The #Resist movement is working, not because of what it is resisting but because of what it is persisting. Women, and forward-thinking men, are no longer accepting what they cannot change, because they have accepted that they themselves are the change. While there are some who are “fighting against,” the core energy of the movement itself is “pushing for.”  This pushing is how we give birth and nurture a new reality based in love, rather than holding in the constraints of fear.

And yes, just in case you were wondering, I am a Star Trek fan.

Until next time be fearless, fabulous and free!

Loving The Afterbirth

Have you ever noticed that you get some of your best insights when you are working with water? Whether it’s the shower, bath, doing dishes or watering the yard, or even walking near the ocean, water seems to stimulate ideas. There is a reason that being in the flow of water stimulates being in the flow of ideas, but that’s not why I’m writing today. Today’s post is an insight I received while in the shower that I had never in a million years would have come up with on my own. It’s the idea that 2016 is the placenta.

As many of you may know, over the past few years we collectively gave birth to a new reality. It is a new reality based in love and has been a long time coming. That’s what 2012 was really all about and this new love-based reality is the return of unconditional love. It is restoring the feminine balance to our planet after thousands of years of imbalance. In pondering what has occurred on our planet the last few years and where we are heading, I’ve known for the past few months that what has been occurring is our collective disease being brought forward so that we can no longer deny what has existed just beneath the surface. This isn’t just about the race for the American presidency but the ugliness brought forward in the human race.

While I stood in the shower pondering this and the upcoming Women’s March on Inauguration day, a very interesting message about the birth of our reality came through and gave me an entirely new perspective to share with you.

“This message Dear One is regarding the birth of your new reality. All of it now is and has been put into place and is now complete as you well know. The chaos of 2016 was the afterbirth. Birth is never pretty. It’s messy and chaotic and painful, although it need not be, as resistance causes unnecessary pain. You have collectively pushed through and She is delivered. As with any newborn, this new reality is very delicate and fragile. It does and will require much vigilance and nurturing to make it strong and sustainable. It may be exhausting those of you who see its potential and battle to keep yourselves awake and aware. For many, it will keep you up because you love what you have birthed. It gets easier as your new reality gets stronger. She, for now, is a newborn infant, barely awakened and taking Her first breaths of life. The afterbirth is messy and not pretty, but very necessary. The contractions that come with the afterbirth are unpleasant and it appears to be of no value as it separates from the life it co-existed with in the womb of creation. In the afterbirth are the nutrients that give you strength and clarity. Do not throw it out placentabelieving that it has no value. It is full of nutrients that restore your resolve and renew your focus. Ingesting it for the value it gives you can multiply your efforts and restore your feelings of depletion. As a newborn baby, your new earth reality at times will seem to wear on your collective nerve as shifts between dimensions. It will bounce back and forth between asleep and awake until it becomes more collectively alert. It may be difficult for some of you to stay awake as you feel tugged by the world around to remain asleep. Eventually the collective will become more awake than asleep. It is up to each of you that have awakened to the new reality to assist the overall consciousness in their awakening. Gently love them in their own being. Remember, you are nurturing a newborn. Those of you who have birthed your own infants and cared for newborn children can see the work you have ahead of you. It is a work filled with delight as it begins to thrive with your love and nurturing. As you move more freely into this new reality you will see that, in waking up from the overdose of fear, birthing your own creations will come with greater ease and elegance. “

This newborn baby, in the evolution of humanity, is only a few minutes old and her life lays in our collective hands. What has occurred in the past few years is asking the feminine in all of us to rise. It is giving us the strength and urgency to pull ourselves out of complacency. It is asking us to step out from our quiet places, come out from under wraps, and move out from behind the woodwork. It is asking that we come together in unity and harmony for the greater good of humanity. It is asking that we become organized movements of consciousness rather than individual bright lights. We need to be seen just as boldly as fear and darkness has been. We need to love the afterbirth for the energy it provides us rather than wishing or pretending it didn’t exist. It is just as valuable to our new earth reality as the baby herself is.

Human beings are the only animals that discard the placenta that is needed to create and nurture life. It is chock full of everything we need to recover from birthing our new reality. Let’s juice it for all it has to give!

Afraid of the Unknown?

This morning as I sat working on my intentions for 2017, along with catching up on a very long “To Do” list after spending close to three weeks playing with my husband and kids, I sat and pondered why it is that moving into the unknown feels so difficult for so many.

Yes, this past year was very difficult for many people as our planet went through a huge energetic shift. That in itself could be a blog post but for now I won’t get too woo-woo on you. Many of us, including myself, lost loved-ones and as a whole we lost individuals that touched our hearts over the years at it seemed that a steam-roller took out celebrities and artists we admired. And, for many, it seemed that we lost our direction as a country when money bought out politics on all sides. The chaos and loss of this past year has many people afraid of the unknown and what the future will be. I’ve heard this concern from clients and friends alike. Sitting and pondering on this as I prepared myself to become immersed in a new year of focus, this is the message that came through.

“My Dear Sweet Children, it isn’t the unknown that you are afraid of. It is what your mind has predetermined the unknown might bring you that you are afraid of. Fear of the unknown keeps your mind preoccupied with chaos and limitation, blocking your ability to recognize your own greatness and the role you play in creating the most vibrant future for yourself and those around you. When your focus is on that which you fear, that is what you create because that is all that you can see.move mountains

It is far better to open your mind to limitless possibles and focus on what you want the future to be. Move toward that which you desire in the direction of accomplishment, rather than allowing yourselves to be paralyzed by fear or attempt to run away from the illusions you have created in your mind. They are simply that, illusions, and when enough of you focus on the illusion of fear, that is what you co-create.

You are always inter-creating and it is up to each of you to focus on what you want rather than what you fear. When enough of you focus on what you want and work toward that, that is what you will create. This is why it is so vital that those of you who are focused on creating a new reality based in love come together in oneness. Yes, one person can make a difference and together you become a force for good that forges valleys and moves mountains.”

In short, individually as well as collectively, we get what we focus on. Yes, this is the Law of Attraction in action, but it’s more than that, it’s common sense. Simply put, you cannot arrive at a destination if your focus is in another direction. That holds true for ourselves, our country and the planet as a whole. We are the creators of our reality, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for and we are the ones who will save us from ourselves. It isn’t a “me” thing, it’s a “we” thing.

Until next time, be Fearless, Fabulous and Free!
