Everything in life comes down to choice...How do I want to "see" this, or "hear" this? How do I want to "interpret" this? What "assumptions" do I want to make? The quality of your life depends upon the choices you make. Many of us are so busy doing the details of our lives, we don't take the time to notice the choices we are actually making. I challenge you to slow down and observe more about the stories you tell yourself about others...the stories you tell yourself about you...and the stories you tell yourself about life. The choice lies in [...]
We all are speaking all the time to ourselves. I received an awesome reflection of how I'm perpetuating old stories and certain kinds of connections with others through these conversations with myself. Whether it be from my childhood, or a decade ago, it is easy to inadvertently keep ourselves stuck from this habit. While I wasn't thinking I was speaking to other people, after all, I'm only talking in my head. However, everything I am telling myself is actually keeping those players alive and stuck in the places I am perpetuating by the particular thought I am continuing to speak, relive, [...]
Our body is always speaking to us. How do you listen to this part of yourself? When you have a headache, do you pop some pills, annoyed by the inconvenience and keep with your agenda at hand? When you are tired, do you drink more caffeine and push through? When you get sick, do you find yourself frustrated and angry, focused on all the things you have to do? If your body was your child, would you dismiss her/him in the manner you do your body? Or would have be more loving and attentive and responsive to her/his needs? Have [...]
I continue to look to nature for reflections on how to maximize the human experience. I aspire to be like bamboo - deeply anchored in strength, while completely flexible to life's experiences as they unfold. Bamboo spends years growing its roots in preparation for when it shoots up with miraculous speedy growth, and demonstrates incredible agility to bend without breaking. Flowing with life makes things the easiest they can be. However, surrendering to this flow can be challenging, as human nature likes to control external things to fit what we think we want. I invite you to try to shift [...]
Inspired from coaching with a Tree... Rooted in profound and blissful source Love and light swirl through my trunk as force Shining out, a golden ring is exuding I Am Presence Branches fearlessly reaching Curious, courageous and seeking Filling new spaces, reaching up to the sky I AM Presence My leaves will caress lightly Offer shade and respite for you Whispering gentle wisdoms in the wind I AM Presence My flowers and fruits so precious abound, Ripe and juicy, gems to be found Showering these gifts abundantly on you I AM Presence I AM You
I coached a tree - we learned about the power of presence. I coached a bush - we learned about the gift of voice, and that it’s possible to speak in many ways beyond the voice of sound. I coached a creek - we learned about the limitless possibilities of expression, creation, and ways to be - all of which are perfect in their natural state. I found the experience to be enlightening and humbling. Everything is communicating around us all the time....How well are you listening?
This is a fun creative piece I wrote. The Universe uses her as a messenger. Synchronicity is her guide. She shows up when you need her. Randomly she’ll cross your path if you’re a stranger, or she’ll reach out if you’re a friend, exactly when you will most benefit from the Wisdom. She seems almost brutal with the honesty she speaks. It can hurt to hear what she says. Yet you know what you’re going to get when you’re with her., and invariably, you find yourself wanting more. She illuminates Divine Wisdom, speaking Truth, inspiring healing. She does not know it. She [...]
Expansion takes time, supported by consistent action, with belief to keep growing the space, and trust in the process that will get you there. Whether we are a flower or a tree, an animal or a person, a star or space, we are all on a journey of expansion. We start as a seed of intention, and then live through the process of that intention. There is a Universal law called The Law of Gender, which states that things evolve in a time frame that correlates with their intended process. We do not arrive as babies, and become [...]
