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 road-map 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 apart of your world.
  • Notice coincidences and synchronicities….these are gold dust. Every day there 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!

What does “really knowing”-really mean? Is it possible to really know what is right for us or to really know what path to take? Can we live doubtless, fearless and clear lives?

I believe so. I believe that there is clear guidance that can give us a sense of assuredness- from the inside out if we take the time to listen and if we decide to trust. How do we get to know and eventually claim this assuredness? To me this is what conscious living really is all about.

Many of us live life like a leaf blowing in the wind…allowing external voices and forces  to stir us around hence we never really “get “what we want or need. Many women that I have spoken with  have told me that they get so caught up in the external picture of what is right or being asked of them that they are not sure – who they “really are”. Some say they lack confidence and clarity on what their lives are really about- living in a state of unassured confusion…

I think we all have times when we question our life and how we are living it but there comes a time when we must be conscious about how we want to live – life—about why we are really here and about what we really desire and create it. This level of refined living IS conscious living!

To really deeply know:

  • Why you are really here on this fine earth
  • What is most important to you
  • What you really want
  • How to truly enjoy life


  • Stop Daily to listen
  • Reflect and pay attention to messages thoughts and divinations from within
  • Draw clear information from these messages- that can be applied practically in your daily life
  • Create space to include new commitments- ideas and ways of working and being in your day to day life

Through my work with hundreds of women individually and with thousands in groups I have been fortunate to support many women to see their lives with totally new eyes as they claim divine clarity!

Give it a go….you may be amazed at what you find from within!

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.

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.

  • Where am I on my path?
  • Where can I live my beliefs more deeply?
  • What is next?

I am living my dream the very dream that I have set out to create– The Essential Feminine Company and writing the book. I have created daily practices, rhythms and ways to create my dream that I want to share to help you create and live your dream. To live your dream you must be conscious of it and committed to it. There really are specific steps that I have followed and that I have seen the most successful – (success defined from the inside out) women that I have personally worked with and that I see in the world. I am looking forward to gathering a small group of women to join me on this journey of exploration to Awakened Consciousness. It is time to show up.

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.

I now really believe that life is both a process and a journey. It’s funny – I have been listening to great inspiring speakers for many years, reading amazing books and spending much of my life looking at what makes me/us tick and how  I/we can live more conscious satisfied lives.

I know many of us have been doing the same. My own life has been my main test laboratory and I have also been honored to work with many women who have also taught me much in these areas. Yet this past year has presented me with number of tests that have forced me to look deep and hard at how I am living my life and, because of this personal inquiry, I have something that I want to share with you — my personal new learnings that are transforming my life.

I have been writing a lot these days about how we rush around and live our lives without being in touch with who we are, with what we really need and with what we really have to offer in the way of our greatest gifts and talents.

I stopped this month to look closely at how I am living, what is working and what is not working and took time to look closely at three key principles that, now that I am using them in my practice, have been changing the entire quality of my life! I am now convinced that when these three qualities below are all lined up together  in my day, amazing things happen.

These qualities are:

  • Gratitude with a very focused intentional approach
  • Conscious choices, the vehicle of our daily actions
  • Self awareness  of our personal destiny

Recently, I have been looking at specific ways to create greater ease in my own life and I have been working  daily with all three principals and have truly been able to slow down, smell the roses (of summer) and accomplish way more with ease.

I am convinced that life can be lived with far greater ease and that it is our responsibility to create the elixir of attributes and qualities that we need to focus on and live within our lives daily. This is true consciousness!

I invite you to revisit gratitude and her close friends and supports, particularly now because I believe she holds essential potential that may be very important to your success and how you are currently living your life.

I believe that there are a number of key universal principals that need to come alive and off the pages of the books we have been reading in order for the world to become a better place. I also believe that we women need to show up and lead the change that is so needed in our world today!

Oh, by the way, we will be looking at this essential and amazing lineup in detail in our July Essential Feminine Living Room. This is a great place to start to deepen your awareness of how you are choosing to live your life and why the outcomes you are receiving may be as they are.

Join me in this Wednesday, July 18 at 12 pm PST in The Living Room for The Power Of Gratitude: The Golden Key That Transforms Your Life!  Things may never be the same for you after the next Essential Feminine Living Room!

I hope to see you there!
