I am delighted to say I am writing you from Ireland- returning here is a dream that has come true for me! I am spending a year living between Dublin, Ireland and London, England. This was a dream that I held very close to my heart for many years. My journey here has taught me many lessons including; that jumping off the cliff without water, as I moved towards my dream, can be very risky, yet if I do not make a jump- I stay still. I also learned that when I have clear intention and dedication to this intention- anything is possible. I believe we all need to have updated visions or dreams as this is what motivates and guides me to create the new. Do you have a dream? What now needs to happen for you to be living it?

I would like to know. I ask because this is the question I asked myself when I realized I had reached many of my dreams and stopped dreaming. Often lethargy, a lack of peace and excitement for life are symptoms that show up when we stop dreaming.  The world is in a state of transformation. Old systems are falling away-violence and disharmony abound. This is more the reason for us to hold a vision or a dream and move towards making it real. Light and dark are forces that have always been on earth- for eternity. It is now time – more than ever to move towards your dream!
I am here to support you – take a look at how I can help.

Join me for a One- Time Guidance Session where we will explore how to get you to create what is next for you in your life. In this session we will:

  • use intuitive guidance, yours and mine to create what is next for you in life and or business
  • work with high level visioning and energetic alignment work
  • do block clearing
  • create support steps and follow up strategies to root the new vision or dream

After taking time off to regroup this past year I personally needed to check in with myself so I could kick start my life and evaluate what would be next for me. I would like to invite you to consider some of the questions I pondered when reflecting on what was next in my life:

woman-591576_960_720

  • Is there a place you lack courage when you think about living your dreams?
  • What stops you from moving forward?
  • Are you getting niggling ideas or thoughts that you are putting to the side- not paying attention to?
  • What risks do you need to take now to grow and to move towards your dreams?
  • How can you now manifest the things you visualize and dream?
  • Day by day what are the first steps you need to take?
  • Dreams are a way to call us forward to live more consciously.

Are you getting any of these signs? If So, Listen Up!

A niggling feeling that something is not right…that we are not fulfilled

 Experiencing a reoccurring sense that there is more to life than the way I am now living.

 Or are you receiving information telling you to move on or make a change now!

 Always listen to these cues because they provide invaluable information and opportunities to move you towards your greatest dreams. Do not be afraid. The rewards of living in alignment with why you are here can be unbeatable and can lead to a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment beyond description!

Thinking about summer almost always brings up the thought of vacationing.  When I was a child we lived on the East Coast of the U.S.  We always took our vacation on Cape Cod.  I have special memories of deep pine forests, ice cream cones, long bike trails and hot sandy beaches that warmed my toes.  As I embraced the business world, the lines of vacation became more blurred.  During some years’ time became less available for long summer strolls on the beach.  At the same time the need for rejuvenation and rest was greater.   I have always need to slow down so I can hear my natural my rhythm so that I can begin to hear myself and what I really need. This, for me, is the finest gift of a staycation; a truly relaxing vacation.

girls-380619_960_720

Today with the world moving at such a quick pace, many of my friends and colleagues are reevaluating what they need in a vacation/staycation.  For many this needs to be a block of time set aside for rejuvenation, contemplation and renewal.  That is not to say that the traditional vacation luxury needs to go.  However, many people are being financially frugal or working more than they have in the past.  So what’s a woman to do?

What would be your version of an ideal staycation or vacation?    I would love to know.

If you want some help envisioning your ideal staycation- our Bubble Bath may help.

I believe each of us is here to create an impact and to effect change.  As I make the year trip to Ireland and England I have asking myself what is the deepest meaning for my life. We all need to do this now and then.

I also believe there has never been a time on this planet where there are more openings and opportunities for us to show up and make a contribution.  I suggest that if you are interested in creating a life of contribution and meaning that you answer this question.

·         How well do you know yourself? (Are there external voices and influences confusing you?)

·         What do you now need to create in your life?

·         Are you committed to taking your life to the next level?  If so, what does that look like?  If not, what’s stopping you?

Let me know if you want to speak with me about why you are here… it would be a joy for me.

Warmly,

Maureen

As I sit here in peace with the sun shining through the French Pane glass door that leads to my patio I watch the sun light up the antique table cloth on the table before me. I watch the white roses light up with sunlight flowing through them. The blue sky outside reaches in and I feel content. I am learning that my contentment is a choice- fueled by my commitment to be grateful and to live an awake and conscious life. I am realizing that my senses guide me in each moment of life and they allow me to take in and receive all the beauty round me.

rose-1260219_960_720

I have made the decision to be a vehicle or a reed in the vast waters of life. I am deciding to allow joy to flow through me. I am deciding to listen deeply and then to follow the golden thread. I trust the road ahead with all its twists and turns. For I know something much bigger than me is driving. I am awake making choices as they arise – staying present.

Much of my contemplation these days has been on my own inner journey to Awakened Consciousness.

v  Where am I on my path?

v  Where can I live my beliefs more deeply?

v  What is next?

I am living my dream the very dream that I have set out to create- spending the year in Ireland and England – launching my work here

Stay tuned. I will be sharing more on this and on ways to join me on the small group journey weekly.

Blessings and gratitude to you.

Sometimes we slip into playing and living in a much smaller and safer way than we are really here and capable of living. The key to moving beyond this place is to get conscious and to begin to really live the life we most desire. For many of us this desire may feel distant or faraway or perhaps we have been there but lost our way and need to regroup. We often get cues or hints in or daily life that gets us thinking – am I happy , is this life really working for me? Some of us freeze like Bambi in headlights when we hear these messages and stay small- as change can be uncertain and staying where we are seems safer.  Some of us reach overwhelm and question our whole life, its meaning and purpose.  We all get a moment of pause that allows us to question how we are really living life.

woman-570883_960_720

When we are being called forward to live more consciously we usually:

Ø  Get a niggling feeling that something is not right…that we are not fulfilled

Ø  Experience a reoccurring sense that there is more to life than the way I am now living.

Ø  Or get another sign in a way we are used to receiving information

Always listen to these cues because they provide invaluable opportunities and subtle openings for change and lasting success.

Recently I realized that I had a lot on my plate and that my priorities and my ability to accomplish what I needed to accomplish while still loving my life was becoming a challenge. I had one of those niggling feeling that something was not right. I had to stop- slow down – listen – take the bull by the horns and reprioritize my days based on what I truly desired most- that aligned with what I value most.

So where does getting VERY clear on our desires enter into the picture?

What we desire is central to designing a life of success and meaning. When you understand your deepest desire (and have tested it to see if it is linked with your highest reason for being here -your destiny) your life will take on a new rich meaning- fulfillment will be central to your every day. You then know that you are on the path to a life well lived.

Let’s get practical here is the roadmap I have used to anchor my deepest desires and values in my day and to measure- daily- how I am doing:

Ø  First be clear about your dream– what do you really want to accomplish (be it in your life or a given month- the art here is clarity about what you want!

Ø  Next, take small measurable steps to build more of this dream into your day (find a teacher or mentor who has already accomplished it, research about it – to build understanding. Do whatever you can to make it real.

Ø  See yourself already there- picture yourself living or accomplishing this great desire ( it really helps to take the distance and blocks away). As you become more comfortable and familiar with the desire it slowly becomes apart of your world.

Ø  Notice coincidences and synchronicities….these are gold dust. Every day here are signs, messages and intuitive knowledge available to us. We must be proactive and invite this wisdom in and use it.

Ø  Close each day with a review of what was wonderful about the day and aligned your day actually was with your greatest desires and values. We are living in an era where great consciousness is needed. Be very conscious and very intentional.

These days that we are living in are absolutely amazing. We have many choices available to us each day. Live life fully. It is your choice.

Let me know if I can be of help. I am committed to your success- your success from the inside out!

There has been much conversation concerning how women and men speak different languages and look at things differently.  When researching my book, “Awakening The Essential Feminine: Claiming Your Influential Power” I learned that there really is a feminine perspective informed by specific attributes, gifts and talents.  Our brain biology; socialization and whole perspective is different.  Our sisters the suffragettes created an opening where our voices could be heard.  Our later sisters fought for the Equal Rights Amendment which moved us towards an equal footing in business and finance.  Today we face the next movement.  This is the movement to claim and fully live our Essential Feminine.

2010-08-14 19.50.29 - Copy - Copy

Often women’s confidence is shaken because we don’t fully understand or claim these natural gifts.  For many women they have been convinced that these gifts are inferior aspects of being.  For us to gain confidence in this world, we first need to “know thyself”.  Once we know ourselves, we then need to believe in ourselves and allow ourselves the opportunity to fully express the amazing beings that we are.  If your confidence has ever been shattered, stand back and rebuild it.  Bring yourself to the company of other women who can serve as models or guides.  If you have strong confidence, look at a sister who does not and guide her.  Point out what is amazing in her.  If she is young, support her to understand the unique and special meaning of her life.  Confidence prevails when we are deeply aware of our meaning.

Sometimes we just need support and clarity to see our own power and strength. You are unique and greatly needed in this world. Be sure to learn your strengths and to fully show up.

Maureen Simon.
