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.

“Everything can be taken from a person but one thing: the last of human freedoms- to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

-Viktor Frankl

Victor Frankl was a concentration camp survivor.  For him to be the one to teach us that the freedom of our attitude cannot be taken away from us is truly an eye opener.  When one reaches the bottom and has the strength to teach about choices and attitude one is truly a Saint.  It is true “ Everything can be taken from a person…but one’s attitude.”

When you look at the way you approach life is your attitude a healthy one, and inspiring one?  Where could your attitude serve you and all around you in a better way?  It is in these moments of contemplation where enlightenment occurs.  The world needs us to wake up now and show a light on all is dark.

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!

1004991834_5eVnU-LIf we finally put an end to the prejudices and persecutions that have caused so much bloodshed and suffering, we have to leave behind cultural traditions that justify violence and abuse in the foundational relations between parents and children and between women and men.  The acceptance of these violations provides a model for accepting human rights abuses across the board.

Riane Eisler “The Power of Partnership”

There is no reason for us to hurt another in any regard.  The unrest of the world is a reflection of our own unrest.  Take a look at your life and notice where you could be at peace.  Take one small step today to increase your own inner peace.  Have faith that this action will add to universal peace.

“If you try to view yourself through the lenses that others offer you, all you will see are distortions; your own light and beauty will become blurred, awkward, and ugly.  Your sense of inner beauty has to remain a very private thing.”

John O’Donohue “Anam Cara”

Maureen Simon

 We all hold a unique and distinct inner beauty that others do not always understand.  Be sure to view yourself through your own lens as you receive signs and messages and important information from your inner life.  Never be too proud to reject feedback but do so selectively.

Three Essential Qualities needed when manifesting include: endurance, commitment, and diligence. Are they present daily in your life?

“The ability to endure is probably the most important ingredient in realizing personal success, in business as well as in other areas of our lives.  All too often, we resolve to exercise regularly, lose weight, spend more time with our family and eat more nutritiously.  But all too often that commitment is forgotten, because over the long haul we fail to demonstrate the endurance needed to reach our goal…”

John Marks Templeton, “Discovering the Laws of Life”

TEF 17

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What we do must be important to us. We must have personal buy in or the things we say we want to accomplish –simply will not be accomplished.  Once we know what we honestly value- the act of achieving it becomes truly possible. It is with ourselves that we must be honest. We are now well into the New Year –time to get real!  Notice what you have committed to in your life- are you living it? If not start today!

 

What we truly value and what we are committed to naturally shows up in our life- often without struggle- and with ease. The old saying holds true in this case- “where we place our attention/intention – energy follows”.  Also remember endurance, diligence and having a focused commitment are all key to successful manifesting

 

So let’s get started. Answer the below questions and see how ready you are to manifest something great:

 

  1. What is it that you want to create/manifest?
  2. Are you ready to call this intention/manifestation in daily for 3 months? (In your prayers, verbally stating it in a ritual or any way that suits you).
  3. Can you create small steps or actions to make it real?
  4. When wobbly or in doubt- or strong and invigorated- can you stay diligent with endurance? ( hint: there may be many tests along the way- stay strong the rewards may be huge)!
  5. Check in regularly to see if you are truly committed…update the creation you envision as needed but stay true to its creation.
  6. Do not be a lone cowgirl- get support. When we help each other much more gets created.

 

To regular and new readers:

You may remember when we were winding down 2014 together-and we started to look towards 2015? Many of us stated a clear doable intention for this year. Well we are now here…how is it going? I would love to hear. If you were not with us then – start now and let me know what yours is. I am happy to be your witness.
