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

1½ hour session- $299.00 (through August 15th).

Are you in?  Your dream may not be as far away as you think.

“Deep within every life, no matter how dull or ineffectual it may seem from the outside, there is something eternal happening.  This is the secret way that change and possibility conspire with growth.  John Henry Newman summed this up beautifully when he said, “To grow is to change and to be perfect is to have changed often.” Change, therefore, need not be threatening; it can in fact bring our lives to perfection.  Perfection is not cold completion.  Neither is it avoidance of risk and danger in order to keep the soul pure or the conscience unclouded.  When you are faithful to the risk and ambivalence of growth, you are engaging your life.”

                                                                        John O’Donohue, Anam Cara

Take a look at your life and notice where you could grow or change at this time.  Where can you begin to see areas of stagnation or stuckness as opportunities for growth and the expression of your full potential.  It is important not to avoid risk but to be faithful to ambivalence and growth.  For it is in these areas of our lives that we become fully expressed and alive.

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.

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

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

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

  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:

  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!

  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.

  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 a part of your world.

  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.

  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!

Give yourself permission to create something new in your life today.

Stop glorifying being busy long enough to slow down, feel your body, and live a much healthier, creative and inspired life.  When you are not overbooked and pushing to prove yourself, you allow yourself to live in the moment and life becomes invigorating and exciting.  For years our cultures have encouraged us to rush and to push to produce.

 

Recently I’ve taken more than my usual time for reflection and contemplation as I was starting to notice that I falling into the glorification of busy syndrome.

 

Over the past couple of months I have totally reevaluated my next steps and created a far more relaxed set of intentions for the year.  I’ve begun to turn more inward towards my intuition for answers and next steps.  I’m making more time for reflections, nature and to notice my natural rhythm.

I wondered:

  • Where are you spinning out in business or life?
  • What needs to happen for you to take more time for you, nature and inner listening?

 

I’m hosting a mini retreat to address these issues and would love for you to join me in April.

One of the books I enjoy most is Wayne Dyer’s “The Power of Intention”.

Marin water view sunset winter 2015

In this book he says, “If you are experiencing scarcity, anguish, depression, an absence of love, or any inability to attract what you desire, seriously look at how you’ve been attracting these circumstances into your life.  Low energy is an attractor pattern.  It shows up because you’ve sent for it, even if on a subconscious level.  It’s still yours and you own it.  However, if you practice deliberately raising your energy level by being cognizant of your immediate environment, you’ll move rather rapidly toward intention and remove all of those self-imposed roadblocks.  The obstacles are in the low-energy spectrum.”

 

 

Dr. Dyer goes on to list a few suggestions for moving your energy field to a higher vibration:

  • Become conscious of your thoughts
  • Make meditation a regular practice in your life
  • Become conscious of the foods that you eat
  • Retreat from low energy substances
  • Become conscious of the energy level of the music you listen to
  • Become aware of the energy levels of your home environment
  • Reduce your exposure to the very low level of commercial and cable television
  • Enhance your life with positive photographs and art
  • Become conscious of the energy levels of your acquaintances, friends and extended family

 

When we make choices that raise our energy field, our quality of life raises as well.   The first step in achieving  increased energy is to notice the things in your day that don’t feel good.  If things repeat or a pattern forms, consider making a change in this area of your life.  Small steps allow for large changes over time.

Life is fast and full for most of us! It is important to make a conscious decision to quiet the mind, connect with the body, and evaluate whether or not we are expressing our gifts fully in the world. All three of these practical expressions can make a major difference in the quality of our lives!

 

Three Must Do’s to Make Conscious Decisions In Your Business and LifeConsider the following:

1 Quieting the mind

  • Set aside time in silence at least 3 days a week for 20 minutes. Begin to get to know yourself, your needs, your desires and aspirations. Learn to identify and trust your intuition and inner voice. We all have an inner voice that guides and directs us. We just need to listen.
  • Question: Can you think of 1 way this week that you could actually create more calm & stillness?

2.  Connecting with the body

  • Learn to become more aware of your body’s needs.
  • Listen more closely to the signs that your body gives you, i.e. where are there aches, sensations, and areas of tightness? Is your body sending you a message?  What might the message be?
  • Explore these sensations through yoga & movement. Your body holds great information about its own healing needs and emotional state of being.
  • Question: What 2 things would you need to do differently to begin to honor and care for your body in a new way?

3.  Expressing our gifts in the world

  • Begin to look at the day-to-day changes that you can make in your life to express more of who you really are.
  • Evaluate whether or not your day is made up of work activities and projects that fulfill you.
  • In the course of each day, do you fully express your greatest gifts? (For example, if you’re a writer, make sure that your day includes writing; if you enjoy people, make sure that your day involves social contact and is not limited to working at a desk job; if you enjoy nature, make sure that each day includes time outdoors.)
  • Question: How could you bring more joy, richness, and fulfillment into your life on a daily basis?  What areas of our life could you improve?

 

As we learn to honor these small and simple things, we begin to connect more with who we are and why you here .  From these discoveries we begin to create deeply meaningful lives.
