We Are All Connected

We are all connected… every conversation matters…

My brother called me recently with tears in his eyes/voice, to read me a letter he had just received from our niece. It went something like this:

“Dear Uncle,
Seven years ago you were inspired to call me.
You didn’t know it was the day after my divorce, and when you called, I was in panic mode.
I was wondering what would happen to me next, worrying where I could live and how on earth
I could possibly manage to take care of myself and my children.

You took time to listen, and then you asked me a question.
You asked me if the next 4 years would pass by regardless of the choices I made.
I said yes.
So you told me to focus on what was most important,
and to go get an education that would give me the ability
to take care of myself and my family without depending on anybody else.

So I did. I went to school, and it was really, really, really hard.
Today, I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing,
I am a licensed Registered Nurse,
and I am working in the State of Oregon.

And I am very grateful for my Uncle, who didn’t know what I was going through, but who felt inspired to call me – and who listened, and then told me what he thought I should do.
And did it. Thanks a Million”

We are all connected.

Get Up and Go Forward

Get Up and Go Forward

I received four different “get up and go forward” messages via social media on the same day.

  1. “You survived what you thought would kill you, now straighten your crown and move forward like the queen you are.”
  2. “Financial success, or any other kind of success, does not require hard work. It does require alignment of thought. … When you learn to direct your own thoughts, you will discover the true leverage of Energy alignment.”
  3. “…will the next 4 years pass by regardless of the choices you make today? Yes… then go do something that will take care of you without having to depend on someone else.”
  4. “Can’t decide on which path to take? Take path A!! Either it will work, or you will find out it doesn’t. In which case, you can then take path B.”

‘Nuff said.

Letting Go Gracefully

Letting Go Gracefully

Oh the STUFF that is going out of here today!
Lightening our load in preparation for our upcoming move.
Grateful for these transitional weeks…
Grateful for the time to make decisions and get things done without being in crisis mode.

Our outer world reflects our inner world.
I learned that as I let go of all that no longer serves in my physical world,
my inner world becomes more clear and calm and peaceful.

Letting go gracefully…

Emotions as Teachers

Emotions as Teachers

I grew up with the generational belief that emotions were not to be trusted.
As a young teen I was specifically counseled to use my head and not my heart,
by someone who, I now realize, did not know how to harness his own emotions
and express them in positive ways.

I have since learned that emotions are powerful, sacred tools of creation.
I find joy in exploring the messages they bring me.
In this perspective, emotions are my teachers.
Our daily life experiences bring up emotions that teach us – if we are open to the lessons.
Here’s a new insight for me:

My husband is currently commuting during the week to his job… gone for 5 days at a time. Yesterday I felt particularly lonely. My muscle testing process revealed it was my own emotion… not generational… and not related specifically to my husband being away from home.
That was a puzzle…
Until this morning’s SoulTalk … when it was revealed to me that I had associated the emotion of being lonely with old age… somewhere along the way I picked up and held onto the false belief that being old was equal to being lonely. I used my clearing process to let go of that incorrect subconscious belief and the associated emotion of loneliness right away.

I intend to live joyfully all the rest of my days… comfortable and happy when I am in the company of others, and comfortable and happy when I am alone. I would not have even become aware of that unconscious incorrect association if my husband was not away for several days each week.

I am grateful for new insights and the skills and ability to heal holistically…
This personal power to grow and change helps me feel loved by God and the Universe…

Thank you for listening…
It is done, it is done, it is done.

Divine Perspective

I thought I had released all the old stuck energy that needs to be released…
but in this morning’s SoulTalk I discovered yet another nuance of fear of going forward…
My body cells are so used to dealing with the status quo of scarcity, pain and struggle as a common reference point… that the old way (stress mode) is comfortable because it is familiar.

Time for a new status quo…
I’m past the point of wearing my traumas on my sleeve…
I have powerful tools of conscious awareness with which to release any lingering hurts.

Now, rather than focusing on releasing old junk…
I am now downloading the divine perspective and learning
what it feels like to live joyfully in affluence and ease.
This is a new season of positive creation.

Clear to the core, I stand taller, breathe more deeply, relax in peace.
I am always, I am a work in progress, but I have reached the feeling of being authentically whole.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
It is done, it is done, it is done.

Our Deepest Fear – Marianne Williamson

In my coaching, I love working with people who are fully committed to doing whatever it takes to heal and thrive.  Sometimes, that process can be quite uncomfortable… so we humans look for ways to avoid the issues and stay in what’s familiar – even if our current status quo is keeping us stuck. In that sense, we prefer our disabled state – and our disabilities actually serve us, because choosing to let them go means we will have to show up differently in life.

Being coached can be challenging.
But It can bring clarity and focus and reveal our purpose.
It can be kind. It can be supportive. It can be encouraging.
It can help us turn around the un-turnaroundable.
It can even help us be wildly successful beyond our wildest dreams.
It can be what we choose it to be.

Someone who knows my coaching work recently reached out in desperation,
Begging me to help them get clear to the core…
Then they pulled back, too afraid to even begin.

Dear Friend and Almost Client,
You knew that in reaching out, you would ultimately get me involved.
But then, upon finding that something significant is required on your part, you pulled back.
Is this a pattern? If yes, it’s time for you to explore it.
Because in the conflict are your answers.
You said you were ready to discover and heal what’s at your core.
But this morning you have switched voices.
You don’t sound so desperate…
You have decided to go traveling…
You are going away to rest so you are not available to do sessions….
And besides, it’s too expensive and you can’t afford it.
You got my attention. I’m listening to those inner voices of yours.
The question is, are you?
Here’s the rub…
If you are truly committed to healing, wouldn’t this time of rest be a perfect time to begin?
Now is always the perfect time.
Now is the only time there is.
Let now be the best time.

“Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”
