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.

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.


#PrayForOrlando - HEART CONSCIOUSNESS

Posted on June 13, 2016 at 9:05 AM

I am outside of Orlando right now, on vacation with my family, and the energy here is incredible. People are lining up to donate blood. There is an outpouring of support. Conversations are expanding into the light and joy that each of the victims were in the world to their family and friends. As more information comes forth, stories about the people in the nightclub are emerging with love and tears. <3


When we experience the worst in humanity, we also need to remember that the BEST in humanity can then show up through each of us.


Heart Consciousness is when we recognize our similarities, our shared connections, and our willingness to help others in need during times of shock and hurt because we remember that I AM YOU and YOU ARE ME. These tragedies are heartbreaking and yet also heart-OPENING because we see how there is beauty in each soul. We rise above race, gender, sexual orientation, and cultural differences. There is meaning in everyone's life, and there is an opportunity for expanding ourselves into higher definitions of love.


 

It is important to mourn, to feel, and to be real with yourself about your reactions during these tragedies. Don't deny or cut off these parts of yourself.


 

And then, when you are ready, it also up to you to continue to expand your definition of Love to include everyone, even if you don't understand, relate, or connect with their purpose, lifestyle, or differences. That is our ongoing work - to rise above our own inner limitations and create more acceptance in the darkest corners.


 

If you want to know what YOU can do to contribute in a positive way, check in with yourself and your heart.


Is love expanding your heart, or is judgment shutting it down?


Are you opening up to the beauty in others or shutting down to their innate light?


Are you willing to listen and hear differences, or are you locked into one perspective and limited viewpoints?


 

Continue to consciously choose what YOU want to create and contribute in the world. Spread awareness, spread Love, spread Light, spread the understanding that every single person here has a purpose and gifts to offer.


 

From a higher spiritual perspective, please view the victims as souls who are choosing to contribute to LOVE in some manner. Choose to see those who left us as beings of LIGHT who want to raise awareness around the current state of humanity, and who want GOODNESS to come from this event.


 

How can you contribute to creating more goodness in the world right now?


What can you do today, even if it seems minor?


 

That is our job as we continue to raise heart energy in even the smallest ways. <3


 

Peace and blessings,

Molly

Writing Workshop Starts This Weekend!

Posted on May 16, 2016 at 11:20 AM

On Saturday, May 21st, with the power of the Full Moon in Sagittarius, we will embark on a new adventure in soul-expression and empowering storytelling!


 

The Sun will have just entered Gemini (the sign of writing), the Moon will be in truth-seeker Sagittarius, and Mercury stations direct on May 21 after being in retrograde, so it is all systems go time!


 

You will feel prepared + inspired to finally communicate what is in your mind, heart, and soul.


 

 

 

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, I can help guide you 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.


 

I want to help you move through those messages with consciousness and grace as you breakthrough barriers and enter a place of flow and acceptance.


 

This writing workshop is designed to be supportive and inspiring as you get rollin' with claiming your story and putting your personal expression out there.


Due to the one-on-one attention I'll be providing each person, class size is limited and closing soon.

Are You A Teacher Or A Student?

Posted on May 9, 2016 at 10:30 AM

Image from Scribing Life


Are you a teacher or a student in your everyday life?


Notice which answer comes to mind immediately.


Look at the patterns of behavior you exhibit regularly and unconsciously: are you answering others' questions often or seeking information regularly?


Which direction do you tend to go in a room full of people: are you a speaker or a listener?


Confession: This is actually a trick question. You are BOTH a teacher and a student. You have the gifts of speaking and listening. You have the expertise to share and digest. You are equipped to play both roles: giving and receiving, offering and accepting. They are a balancing act within that we bring to the world.


The answer you choose first will reveal what voice is louder in your Being: your Soul voice or your Ego-mind voice. And before rushing to any judgments or conclusions that one is "better" than the other, keep in mind that both are necessary and valuable. Both are parts of you.


Teaching is a service that we offer to others looking for wisdom, understanding, and new information about themselves. Teaching is giving.

Studying is being open to new information and willing to apply it to life for greater growth and balance. Studying is receiving.


We often lean to one role over the other unconsciously because it is more comfortable, or more empowering, or more of a natural fit. Yet we must not lose sight of the need to balance both giving and receiving for our greatest possible growth. We are gifted with both abilities and have the power to use them for the highest good for All.


Honor your wise Soul as a teacher with qualifications, experience, knowledged and gifts to offer. Honor all who are willing and open to be students of your wisdom.


Honor your wise Self for being an open student eager to learn new information and expand beyond a known comfort zone. Honor your teachers for all they give to you.


Both parts of you are needed and essential. Both are gifts you can offer and share. Both have the potential to elevate you to higher levels of self-knowledge and personal empowerment.


What do YOU as a Teacher look like in the Real World:


  • Teaching classes on a topic that brings you joy naturally
  • Sharing tutorials and how-tos on a blog or website
  • Offering additional insights in everyday conversations
  • Writing "just because"
  • Nurturing and encouraging growth in others


What do YOU as a Student look like in the Real World:


  • Seeking answers willingly to any topic of personal interest
  • Scheduling sessions with other practitioners
  • Attending conferences around a passion
  • Reading "just because"
  • Planting seeds in any area of life and nurturing them for growth


Most likely both of these lists connect to your area of expertise and growing interests.


For today, simply hold the intention to grow in both areas. Balance yourself internally with the knowingness that you are a Master at giving and receiving. Honor yourself as a Master who is expanding and growing in each role.


You are gifted with the wisdom of teaching and the wisdom of learning.


Go out there and SHINE.

Molly



The Biggest Leap

Posted on May 5, 2016 at 11:25 AM

11 years ago today, I boarded a plane to Paris, giant suitcases in tow, ready for a new life-changing adventure.


You know when you're answering a Call of Your Soul because you cannot ignore it, nor deny it, nor delete it.


It is waiting for you to grab it and go for it with gusto - and to trust in bigger ways than you've ever known before. A significant life change will eventually open you up to more of YOU and connect you with deeper levels of authenticity that get to the heart of who you are now.


As you continue to follow that Call of Your Soul, you change and grow and become a newer version of yourself. I look back to that day in May and remember everything that was unknown and exciting; the crazy concoction of "can't wait" and "just a bit scared." I'm super proud of that previous version of myself who had no idea how much she would become along the way.


Becoming your own heroine is an experience of all energies, and the journey shows up for each of us in the most perfect way - when we say YES to that Call of Your Soul.


If you have a Call of Your Soul story to share - I want to support you in opening up and putting it out there in a published book.Sound exciting? More information is here at www.ModernHeroineSoulStories.com


Cheers to you as you continue to listen to your guidance and trust that whatever calls to you, is perfectly-perfect for you.


And you most certainly have everything you need for the adventure ahead!

Prince's Final Farewell, Full Moon Style

Posted on April 23, 2016 at 10:45 AM

Prince was here to leave a creative dent in the world with his Pluto at 29 Leo exactly conjunct his MC. ‬ The power to create, transform, and express to the masses was meant to rock the foundation of artistic expression. And with his Scorpio Ascendant, I highly doubt anyone could tell him what to do or how to do it. smile emoticon The magnetism, power, and passion of his Scorpio Asc meant it was definitely going to be his way, no compromising. He was a force and locked into his destiny as a spiritual purpose of personal power (Neptune conjunct North Node in Scorpio).


With his Sun in Gemini and Moon in Pisces, Prince loved being multiple things to multiple people, yet Venus in Taurus in the 6th was all about the music = working for the music and creation of beauty. Venus squaring Uranus in Leo in the 9th is the instability in relationships, probably based on different belief systems, as well as not feeling anyone could truly love him long-term.


His Moon in Pisces in the 4th house makes for a very private person - an introvert who needs to be in his own space daily. Sensitive, spiritual, insightful, intuitive. These gifts fueled his poetry and ability to create from 'other worlds'. His Mercury in Gemini gifted him with the spoken word talents of a songwriter, storyteller, active mind, probably a great joke teller, and overall genius with words.


It has yet to be officially confirmed if he was suffering from an auto immune disease that he acquired decades ago, but with Chiron and Saturn working with both his Sun in Gemini and natal Saturn, pressure was increasing. The physical healing hit a reality check that could not be avoided. 


His astrology chart is complicated and all over the place with multiple energies vying for expression. I hope he feels a sweet peace with his journey and all he created, shared, and offered us.


He said goodbye to us on a Full Moon in Scorpio conjunct his Neptune and North Node in the 12th house. A completion cycle. Secrets. Spiritual transition. A celebration for his mission and a recognition that he did it his way, all the way, for better or worse, and made sure to have some fun along the way.


This is what it sounds like when doves cry.

Every woman is her own heroine.

 

Every female is part of the grand journey of rising consciousness and rising feminine power on the planet.

 

We are each contributing, offering, sharing, learning, healing, stumbling, figuring it out as valuable Soul pieces of the sum total Soul.

 

And the best way for each of us to individually contribute is by answering the Call of your Soul. You know what it is at some level of your being. You understand what you need to do or at least you've had glimmers of it. You came here with this knowledge.


Becoming your own Modern Heroine is a journey as unique as you, and also tied to all feminine energies through the cosmic web that unites us in more ways than perhaps our Ego-Minds would like to acknowledge at time. 

 

We are here for each other.

 

We are here for ourselves.

 

We are here for God.

 

We are here for our Soul growth.

 

 

We are here.


 

We support each other as women when we share our stories and put ourselves out there. When we say This Is Me - not, THIS IS ME or this is me - but a powerful, confident: 

 

This Is Me.


 

Open up and share your awakening story of growth, healing, power, or inspiration.


 

When you do, you will be contributing to a book that will be shared with the intention of supporting women around the world.


 

All book royalties will be donated to Women for Women International, a non-governmental organization that helps women in war-torn countries re-build their lives through education and business training programs.

 

 

Choose one of four Soul Themes.


Maximum of 2,000 words.


All book submissions due by July 31, 2016.

Lighthouses, Light-shiners

Posted on April 17, 2016 at 2:15 PM

 

 



The best use of your energy throughout the year may be in simply “holding the flame.” Spiritual mastery is found in allowing each person the full experience of their own energy so they can see their power in action. Consciousness can only be taught to those who are willing to listen and learn, or it is like relentlessly pouring water through a sieve and expecting drops to accumulate.


Take a moment to visualize yourself as a lighthouse. Feel grounded in the earth. Stable in your core. Strong in your posture. Bright in your third eye chakra. Radiate light out into the world intentionally. There is also a feeling of protection in a lighthouse. You are protecting your energy field and maintaining its vibrancy without exposing it to external elements and unneeded experiences.


Be vigilant this year about where your energy goes out into the world, and ensure it’s coming from a high-vibrational place most of the time. This will take practice because it will not be your first response in all circumstances to be high vibrational, and some storms will be harder to navigate because they are connected to one of your Soul lessons. Hold the intention of being an energetic lighthouse and light-shiner so you can consciously maintain your energy and elevate yourself to a higher perspective.


This is the energy of a Spiritual Being rather than a Spiritual Human. You are being an energy, offering waves of light, and trusting the energy to do what it must do. The practice of Being will be evident throughout the year as an intentional practice of grounding, shining, and loving yourself.
