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.

Our world is consistently directing us to look forward– to look ahead in order to figure out what is next— and to stay ahead of the curve.  I must admit I do it myself.  And some of the work we do together here at TEF encourages you to look ahead and be conscious of next steps and new dreams. But I am learning that there’s a fine line and a fine balance that we need to create in the area of planning and  fulfilling our dreams as we enter this New Year—2012 and in responding and reacting to what we think the world needs from us.

Working diligently last year to create a company – the company of my dreams and to launch a book – the book of dreams –I learned a lot.  I learned that having goals and objectives (derived from within and created live… in the world) is essential.  I also learned that it can be very healthy to stretch ourselves to learn new things—things we may dread learning such as- in my case– technology –or for yourself … fill in the blank… (Name the area you are most stretched to learn that would actually benefit you J).I also learned that placing my heart and attention in a focused way to achieve a desired outcome is the way I get things get accomplished.

In 2012 I am committed to continue dreaming – and—creating. I am also committed to learn a whole new way to pace my day—to allow for spontaneity and structure to live side by side.  I am also committed to live each day and moment in the day and moment I am in not in the past or the future. This means I will be listening from with-in—being more spontaneous about time and allow for the interesting gifts that life presents us each day. I remember years back hearing the phrase “Be Here Now” and not fully understanding it. I believe I now truly understand.

As I said before-I believe that there’s a fine line and a fine balance in how we create and fulfill our dreams. My wish for you this New Year is that you will find the natural rhythm that allows to:

  • Know what is yours to create or contribute your precious life force to
  • Have the courage to live your dream
  • Find the balance and rhythm to live harmoniously honoring your needs and natural rhythm
  • And to live the life that you are here to live—fully and joyfully.

May 2012 be the year you truly shine!

Happy New Year!
