Servin' Up Spiritual Breakthroughs This Week

Posted on July 27, 2016 at 12:20 PM

One of the big energies we are building up to and feeling strongly this week is Uranus in Aries preparing to go retrograde on Friday. ‪The planet is currently slowing down (yellow light)... to stop at the red light and head in reverse until December. (He is at 24 degrees Aries and will venture back to 20 degrees Aries until December 29, revisiting his path since April 2016.)


 

Uranus is the planet of disruption, breakthroughs, breakdowns, chaos, lightening strikes, technology, the internet, groups, rebellions, and individuality. He shows us where we are not being ourselves, and where we need to follow the beat of our own drum. We do not want to be told what to do; instead, we want the freedom to follow our own vision and creations. And as we do that, then we connect with a soul tribe that meets us at that same energetic vibration and frequency.


 

Uranus is also the planet of spiritual awakenings and opening up to higher cosmic wisdom. It rules astrology, metaphysics, and anything that is 'out there' and ahead of mass consciousness. Visionary and cerebral, we are encouraged to think beyond borders and outside of the box - because is there really a box in the first place?


 

In Aries, Uranus shows up as an assertion of individual identity and honoring who you really are at a soul level. It's where you are crumbling because you can't be 'something else' to others; you can only be yourself and you won't pretend anymore!


In many ways, this planet is showing you a starting point for the next phase of your life because you are coming to understand more of yourself than ever before. Your I AM energy is being activated in a way that you can embrace, own, and integrate into your life.


 

From now until the end of the year, we'll be looking within for more answers and deeper understandings around our spiritual awakenings process. It is a wonderful time to explore metaphysics, astrology, universal energies, and anything that raises your curiosity because that is Uranus in Aries reminding you of your light and eternal connection to the cosmos.

Onwards we roll!

Connecting with Higher Perspectives in Challenging Times

Posted on July 27, 2016 at 3:45 AM

We can easily feel discouraged or troubled if we look around at what is happening in the world and wonder WTF?!


Politics, violence, shootings, upheaval - is there any chance of this stuff ending or changing?


It can all make our energy sink as we enter the darker caves of negativity, fear, anger, and despair.


 

In this show, we'll look at how we are made for these times and made for this chaos - do you feel it within yourself?


As a Soul, we each chose to be here at this time in order to maintain the light, vibration, and higher consciousness of understanding about the current cycles of energies.


 

Let's return to this knowingness and higher perspectives! What if everything is happening right on time?


Listen right here to the newest episode!

Experiencing Creative Comparison? 5 Ways to Move Through It

Posted on July 3, 2016 at 10:50 AM

{Originally written in 2011 and featured on Tiny Buddha}



"Just as much as we see in others, we have in ourselves." - William Hazlitt


Most days I am a dedicated writer and artist, focused and working away with my oh-so-happy hands.


Most days I feel inspired to share adventures and insights from living in Paris for over two years old while going to graduate school. Or referencing the intense spiritual work and personal growth I’ve experienced in recent years.  Or describing how I quit the unfulfilling rat-race to focus on my passion and my life dreams.


Most days I have confidence, pride in my personal creations and feel pretty darn good about my creative ideas.  Most days I am on a roll.


Then there are the other days.


The days where I spend too much time on the internet and see other people's grand successes. The days where I find myself at a library staring down the rows of books, wondering if my writing is enough. The days where I count numbers and look at blog data and spend too much time focusing on the details.

 

So many people are already acclaimed writers, bloggers, artists, and creative experts - is there even room for one more?


On those days, my head gets spinning in creative comparison and I can’t get out of it. My energy plummets down, down, down, as if sinking to the ocean floor.


What do I have to offer that is different and new? Are “they” more talented, creative, recognized, and special than I? Are “they” more qualified to write with more incredibly brilliant things to say?  


I decide to get out of the house when I can’t get the comparisons out of my head. Exercising, grabbing a cup of tea, reading a book and sitting in a park are all great remedies. But there is one place in particular where I love to go to turn-off my mind: Ikea.


I am in love with Ikea. And I like to believe that Ikea is in love with me because of how often I invest quality time in our blue-and-yellow relationship. If they offered personally monogrammed shopping carts, I would use mine as a purse.


Strolling through the giant store is an immediate spark for my visual senses. I follow the winding path, my heart leading the way, and stop in the warmth of the lighting section. Dang, this area is bright.


Hundreds of lights adorn every surface and direction. Each light offers a different vibrancy, size, and function. I notice how there’s room for all to shine their full wattage. I loiter in the middle of the surrounding fixtures as some illuminating thoughts about dealing with creative comparison pass through my mind:


1.      Recognize specifically what is triggering the comparison. The desire to be “seen” and acknowledged? The fear of not being valued? Confirmation of not doing the “right” thing?


Let that vulnerable part surface and be seen. Allow it to be heard. Bring it to the light.


2.      Send that vulnerable part high-wattage Love, big hugs and warm understanding. Send it confirmation that comparing is part of human nature at times. We are social beings who want to see where we fit into the social fabric around us.


Take the comparison simply as a “checking in point” for what is possible in the world. Use the vulnerability as a place of inspiration. Send it more high-wattage Love.


3.      Compare and Despair? It rhymes, so it’s an easy adage to remember, but it’s not a productive thought. Replace those two words with this rhyming pair: Admire and Inspire.


The best of others bring out the best in us. What a gift to have so many people to find inspiration from! What a blessing to feel creative energy from others! Allow the light of others to light a bigger path for ourselves.

 

4.      Everyone has two hands and one mind they can use to create, but we are each blessed with a unique creative voice from our individual souls. Never doubt the power of what I am compelled to offer.


My soul essence has a light that is mine to broadcast and share. No one else can share my soul’s creative voice in the world. My soul only knows my personal truth and can only steer me in that direction.

 

5.      What I am called to do in my heart is what I am called to do for the hearts of others. Claiming my soul’s purpose without expectation, judgment or attachment is the primary commitment. I lose nothing and gain everything by shining my light brightly.


There is room for all of the many lights in the world to shine brightly and boldly.


Ahhhh. I now feel so relaxed and calm after standing here with my heart light blazing. Ikea’s lighting products are so amazing.


Apparently, though, you’re not supposed to stand with your eyes closed in the middle of the lighting section. I’ve been asked numerous times if I need help or have a problem with something. I smile and say, “Oh no, I am GREAT.”


My renewed enthusiasm scares the employees away. I gather myself together and return to the flowing concrete pathways.


I see so much clearer now how the world needs as many lights to shine as possible. Every light is valuable, seen and special. Every light brings unique energy beyond what can be measured.  Every light is a gift to and from the soul.


I believe it’s the reason why we are all here:


To shine boldly from the heart light that is waiting for us to turn - and leave - it on.


I purchase my must-have items, and pass up the urge to grab a cup of meatballs for $1. There is one problem with thinking so positively in Ikea: the yellow bag sure does get heavy.


As I leave the parking garage, I have one more thought about the enlightening lighting department. It’s silly, but it makes me happy.


I have this visual that every night, each light is turned off one by one to go to sleep…errr, save energy. As a single light is flicked off, all of the other lights say, “Thank you for adding so much warmth and beauty to the room today! It was perfect! See you tomorrow for another day of light!” 


Then another light is turned off, and all the other lights say, “Thank you for doing your best today! We saw it and we recognize you! See you tomorrow for another day of light!”


Then another is light turned off, and all the lights say, “You were so amazing! We were so happy to be in your glow today! See you tomorrow for another day of light!”  


And on and on it goes until every light is asleep.


Then they are each turned back on tomorrow with fresh energy, strength and willingness to shine even more brightly.

 

Sharing Your Journey Is Your Next Leap of Faith

Posted on June 28, 2016 at 11:10 AM

 

Whether it's been a lifelong dream, or just a recent inspiration, you are feeling the urge to put your journey into written form.


But after the excitement fades, and you sit down to begin, you may be swirling in HOW, exactly, to write everything you want to express.


 

You'll get stuck.

 

Come up against inner "fear" blocks.

 

Wonder if what you're writing is 'good enough.'

 

Feel stupid or silly for what comes out.

 

Doubt that you have anything to offer in the first place.

 

Want to throw it all away.


 

Don't worry - I've been there, too. After writing ten books, I completely understand every block or inner voice that creeps in during a creative exercise.


 

If you're ready and excited to truly follow this passion project and turn it into reality, now is the time to write from your authentic Self and develop your voice in an empowering manner. You'll be PROUD of what emerges and probably surprised by your own written wisdom.


Even better? Inspire thousands + improve the world. 


For reals. 


Submissions are now open - and rollin' in! - for an awesome non-profit book project that is going to be a special gift to the world.

Spiritual Awakenings, Soul Growth, and the Feminine Archetype

Posted on June 26, 2016 at 1:20 PM

Have you looked at your life through the lens of a modern heroine?


Have you stopped to see how YOU are moving, flowing, and allowing Spirit and Soul to glide through you?


 

Too often, we become distant and detached from our own strength and wisdom when we are continually seeking what we perceive is outside of ourselves.


Yet with the thousands of women I've connected with through the years, I can tell you this - you hold an integral part of the modern female archetype that is also new to the planet.


 

Let's return to that place of confidence within yourself. Let's talk about how you are MORE than you possibly realize, and why your energetic presence is a gift to global energy right now.

Did you know your astrology chart holds specific answers, guidance, and important energies around what you need for compatibility, emotional joy, friendship, and romance?

In our 4 weekly classes together, get to know your relationship energies in a deeper way, especially what you need in:

~Business & Social Partnerships

~Quality Friendships

~Dating, Romance & Love Connections

~Marriage and Long-term Relationships


 

Understand why you are, or have been, attracted to certain people and characteristics:

 

~Why did you date him/her - and why did it not meet your needs?

~Why do you pull in certain partners over and over, and what are their lessons for you?

~How can you rise above the lower, unconscious energies you keep attracting?

~What qualities are a good match for you in marriage and long-term partnerships?

~Why are you possibly moving through a romantic dry spell?

~Can you feel safe and secure with another and sharing your vulnerable, soft spots?

Come Over To My Paris Apartments!

Posted on June 18, 2016 at 9:50 AM

I have pictures for you from my life in Paris! These are a few of the places I describe in my spiritual memoir, The Art of Trapeze, and I wanted to share these images with you because I know how much visuals can make a story come alive. Come on over and hang out! 



Here it is, the first Paris apartment I lived in and absolutely loved as soon as I stepped inside. Worth the wait after seeing many less-than-desirable places. Check out those high beams in the kitchen - gorge. The studio is incredibly small, as one would imagine, and I definitely got tired of sleeping and sitting on a futon. You can't see it very well here, but the kitchen is behind the wood countertop and only four feet wide. The fridge wouldn't fit in the space, so it had to sit in the living room. C'est la vie!



I loved, loved, loved my neighborhood in the 15th! Lots of energy, stores, restaurants, and a gorgeous giant park nearby on the Seine. During the holidays it is magical with Christmas lights and the smell of delicious warm pastries. You can see my little apartment window with the flower pot hanging on the railing.




Here's my second apartment with the gorgeous garden. This is the one that was under construction and I had to nudge those French workers along to get the place completed so I could actually move in. Also, you can see the window where Kitty escaped.



Thank you to everyone who read the book and enjoyed it! It's humbling to know I could contribute to your spiritual journey and understanding your life path, too.


The third book in the series will be released soon! Join the email list for updates and exclusive deals. 




If you're interested in reading The Art of Trapeze, it's available as a paperback or ebook in many online stores.
