When we believe passionately in something that still does not exist, we have already begun to create it because we believe in it. Belief in something is the seed of all change.

The non-existent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

 sparkler-677774_960_720

As we enter the new year what – that which you really want in your life – up to now – that has not yet manifested-has not sufficiently desired?

The state of our world is a sign that you are needed now more than ever before.

Go for your greatest dreams and never look back.

Unless you feed your dreams with passion, they will remain a non-reality.  Dream big, intend strongly and sufficiently to fuel your greatest desires with passion. Then step back and be patient, anything can become a reality.

Happy New Year and remember to go for it!

“True success is always accompanied by peace of mind.”
-Catherine Ponder
As long as you express fear, resentment, criticism and other negative emotions—which result in a lack of peace—it is not possible to attain very much in life.  The act of blessing brings peace within and without.  You can be a peacemaker to any situation by blessing it, rather than condemning it.  So bless pain, financial problems, trouble-some personalities, or worrisome conditions with the thought, “Peace. Be still.”
-Catherine Ponder
On this day of great significance- the completion of the 2 year US presidential campaign -people in the States and in the world feel great concern.  We have before us uncertainty- on the scale that most of us have not yet experienced.
Take a look at how you are living your life today.  Does your life express fear and criticism or trust, promise, and hope?  When we create our life from a place of peace rooted deep within—the world senses this.  We form an immediate attraction which draws people and experiences to us. Many are challenged to feel peace today– but it is still available to us.
It is important for us to be clear about our personal mission and to stay on task. Hold to our mission and to show up fully in your life in the ways you can make your greatest contribution. Only through clarity can we reach satisfaction in our life.  Peace is cultivated by conscious living and conscious decisions.  Even in the hardest times.
Women have a natural ability to lead when things are toughest. We are needed now more than ever. We are most comfortable creating environments of harmony and are often ones to create harmony and peace in our work environments and in life.  In no other time in history has it been as crucial for women to show up for what we value most- this will be different for each one of us. It is time for us to guide and lead and to live lives that reflect our very important core values and the powerful gifts of the feminine.
In these times of uncertainty be sure to find the peace with in.

More so than ever before in the last fifty years, uncertainty is a part of everyday life. We are living today in a time when world upheaval puts pressure on each of us. To flourish in the face of this pressure, it is necessary to step back, take charge and consider what is most important and to put our commitment and life force behind- in other words-  what is most important to us.

An important question to ask is:

“What do I want to have come from the upheaval that the world is in right now?”

Since we know that change is ever present we need to become a part of the change that we want to see in the world as Gandhi suggested.

Doubt comes when we hold conflicting desires so it is particularly important to become very clear of our purpose and what we most value. Knowing our purpose and holding to it steadfastly allows the things that we need to come towards us.  This is a basic principal of alignment. When we understanding our purpose and values, we can be confident in the face of the world’s uncertainty. If our purpose is aligned with hope and the highest possible good, we are unstoppable and we cannot fail.

Two things that I personally value and are central to my life are:

·         Stillness daily – so I can listen to what is most important and move out into the world with more calmness and a clearer sense for what I am meant to put my attention on

·         My life long conviction to equalizing the opportunities and resources in this world so all have access to basic needs-– health and prosperity. I believe we will all benefit when this conviction of mine is realized in the world.

What are you most committed to in our uncertain world? Don’t buy into uncertainty – create certainty!

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.

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.

Ready to Take the Plunge?

I believe now more than ever before in the history of planet earth that we are all being asked to:

v  Know and live with the exact purpose that we are here to live- in the forefront of our day and in the way we prioritize our time use.

v  Realize that we are the caption of our own ship. We by our beliefs and actions, each day, guide the outcome of our life.

v  Life is wonderful when we find out where we need to wake up ( form old habits, limiting beliefs and all else that keeps us small) and when we begin to bust through all limitations and fully show up as the amazing being we truly are.

I now see precisely where I have held myself back and I now know just how clear my day to day intentions need to be. It has become clear to me in my own life that the clearer I am about my intentions the more powerful the outcomes are.  I guess by now the sounds obvious since so many world teachers are focusing on the power of intention.  The trutIMG_2513h of the matter is that it needs to become an integrated part of our daily practice or these are just senseless words. And the real truth is that a new portal of possibility has opened and your fully showing up is not just a nice thing – it is essential for us to turn spaceship earth around from the nose dive it seems to be facing.

We now each need to understand what the bigger picture of our life holds.  What is the meaning we are here to express, or live or create?  True magic in life arises when we line up this bigger picture with our daily choices.  The bigger picture serves as a litmus test in which we can begin to measure if our life is in alignment or not.

For many years, I’ve been discussing the idea that each of us has a higher purpose or meaning.  It is the responsibility of each of us to discover our own higher purpose.  A few questions that you may want to ask yourself might include:

·         How can I allow more good into my life?

·         What brings me pure joy?

·         What is deeply meaningful for me?

·         What is the best way for me to develop a life that allows me to live my purpose or meaning for being here now- today?

·         What is the best way for me to create quiet time or time for introspection so that I can find the true answer to this question?

It’s funny- I was just thinking how fast time moves by…like a swift moving river. As I speak with women today on a regular basis I hear the comment that life moves so fast.  For this very reason it is essential that we create time to answer these very important questions.  Once we do, our quality of life becomes far richer and more meaningful.
