Top 10 Thoughts On Writing A Memoir

Posted on February 16, 2017 at 11:30 AM

With over 30,000 copies of The Art of Trapeze downloaded, I have a few things to share with you about writing a memoir.


 

Top 10 Thoughts On Writing A Memoir, Putting It Out Into The World, and Realizing People Read It


 

1. You'll only feel good about what you write if it comes from your heart, which feels like a big-fat-giant risk at first. However, there are enough ego-based books out there, full of platitudes and typical outcomes and mainstream advice so trust that what you authentically share is relatable to YOUR peeps (not everyone, just YOUR peeps who are on the same wave length).


 

2. You'll hate the book a million times before you hit publish on Amazon. It will be in the trash, the gutter, and heavily edited many times as you wrestle with what to say. The creative process is never dull.


 

3. Private messages from readers will touch you. Discussing depression, success, love, adventure, emotional vulnerabilities, and fears on paper will push you deeper into yourself. It will all sound crazy and lonely at times, until you receive unexpected feedback, such as:


 

"Molly, This book is going to stay with me for a while. Thank you for its gifts."


 

"I have experienced many of the things you shared in your memoir, but as a male, it isn't socially acceptable for me to put it out there."


 

"Your words inspired me to heal something I've been avoiding. I also shared this book with my best friend, I hope you don't mind."


 

4. An author never minds if you share their book with your best friends.


 

5. It will be the worst book in the world to some reviewers. Bad reviews are part of being a public artist; it comes with the territory. (Personal attacks, unfortunately, are standard these days for authors. I have seen a lot of slander and mean things written for numerous memoirs. Readers are smart; they see through this when they are your peeps.)


 

6. It will be the best book in the world to other reviewers. Just do not tell these people about Hemingway, Angelou, Thoreau, Joyce, Theroux, Whitman, Kingsolver, Harper Lee, Dr. Seuss, etc.


 

7. Neither being the best nor the worst will be true. You'll just be the best writer you could have been at that time.


 

8. With a memoir, your children will see the truth of who you were back when you were young, adventurous, foolish, unrestrained, and open to the world. Perhaps you will have forgotten this version of yourself, too, until you catch a brief glimpse of the book cover somewhere out in the world.


 

9. At the end of your life, you'll be proud that you took a shot and contributed a small fraction of a small life story to the larger whole of storytelling.


 

10. Take the risk to go deeper. Memoirs have the power to intimately connect with a reader. Honor this opportunity in the best way you can. Life is a grand adventure, so why not put yourself out there just a bit more, trusting we have more in common than we realize.





 

5 Types of Consciousness On The Planet Now

Posted on February 13, 2017 at 11:50 AM


Consciousness is the understanding that everything around us has meaning associated with it. Everything has consciousness because everything has energy. Becoming more conscious is an opening to greater awareness about the interconnectedness of all things, including all energies beyond the realms of the five senses. Exploring consciousness invites expansion into higher levels of awareness.


From the words we say and the actions we take, to our food, numbers, rocks, animals, geographic locations, and everything else around us (a rather large category), all energies hold consciousness.


Consciousness involves many overlapping factors that contribute to an energetic whole. On an individual level, our emotions, thoughts, vocabulary, and actions all hold a type of consciousness that reflects our personal energy.


On a global scale, humanity is collectively creating a level of consciousness about the human experience, the planet, nature, and our responsibility to the earth. Mass consciousness is a reflection of our collective energy.


There are currently five dominant types of consciousness present today, co-existing, spreading, retracting. I am specifically identifying these as types of consciousness and not levels because levels implies hierarchy or dominance. Using the word type is highly intentional as a way to move beyond the polarities of good and bad; right and wrong; better and worse.


Each type of consciousness offers a different perspective, understanding, and opportunities for growth. Each type has value in providing information and describing experiences. Each type also allows us to choose what perspective is best for our individual, and collective, growth.


Check out the 5 types of consciousness here!

Posted on February 11, 2017 at 9:35 AM


How exciting for an indie author to see their book next to publishing powerhouses!

Especially in the company of a memoir that just won the Golden Globe for Best Picture!


Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my book a bestseller among these incredible titles. Humbled, honored, proud, motivated.


The Art of Trapeze is essentially the hero's journey for spiritual growth, and the story includes numerous layers of inspiring messages:


~ Dreaming big and believing in your Self

~ Unexpected success can unfold in many ways

~ Building on your experiences to improve your life

~ Taking inspired action with confidence and courage

~ Responsibility for your energy in all ways

~ Facing your Shadow Self and unconscious emotions

~ Clearing, releasing, purging, transformation

~ Peace, Self-Love, JOY, and Happiness

~ The perfection of the bigger picture

~ The Eternal Truths of our human experience


And don't forget, The Art of Trapeze is the first book in a series. The grand adventure continues in The Modern Heroine's Journey of Consciousness as we dive into the five types of consciousness, the spiral and the elevator, soul contracts, the 11 stages of spiritual growth, and a lot more.


I hope all of these insights and examples continue to support you on your life path!


A Day In The Life as a Work-At-Home Mama

Posted on February 5, 2017 at 10:50 AM

A day in the life as a Work-At-Home Mama:


 

- Consider the day off to an amazing start if it starts AFTER 6:30 am


- Baby eats breakfast in high chair (cheerios + bananas are the biggest hit); guzzle first cup of coffee + protein shake


- Play time in the living room…scroll through phone for weather + news updates…


- Follow baby around as he walks into all the forbidden rooms (bathroom, pantry, garage door) and attempt to redirect him


- Mid-morning nap occurs and YAY, I get to be productive on the computer!


- Check email + social media for anything urgent or important


- Schedule astrology sessions


- Podcast? Maybe not today if he doesn’t nap long enough


- Attempt lunch in high chair (yogurt, cheese, and turkey, please!)


- Realize I’m starving but do not want leftovers


- Maybe go to the gym, but only if childcare services are still open for the day


- Play, play, play with books + stacking cups + ball + things that go beep beep beep!


- Determine if laundry is really a priority or not. Determine if folding towels and emptying dishwasher is really important. Determine if any of this can be done while active baby is putting his favorite ball in laundry bin + running around the couch.


- Jot down notes for books-in-progress


- Text friends + Mom


- Get excited that the babysitter is coming tomorrow for 3 hours so Mommy can work


- Hopefully go for a long walk…weather permitting…or off to Target/Costco/the mall/ANYWHERE


- Countdown the minutes until daddy comes home, YAY!!!


- Diaper count total is somewhere between 5 to 7


- Dinner is approaching, which is rarely given any thought before 4 pm. Check freezer and fridge, then possibly send a “Can you pick up dinner?” text to Daddy.


- Try to remember what life was like with free time and long periods of productivity…nope, can’t remember that!


- By 8 pm, collapse in front of TV with wine in hand as Daddy does bedtime routine…determine if I have enough energy to read an actual book...


 

That’s a wrap!


And then we'll do it all over again tomorrow, bright and early. :)

One of 2017's Main Energy Signatures

Posted on January 26, 2017 at 11:25 AM

We had guests visiting us here in sunny, warm Florida for the past 2 weeks, and they boarded a plane this morning to go home. I honestly, seriously, for the life of me have no idea how 2 weeks had already passed.


 

How did time go by that quickly?

WHERE did it go?


 

This is one of the energy signatures of 2017. Time will not be ‘time’ as we have known it because we have transitioned to a different energy field of unlimited potentials. It will feel unreal simply because it is not the ‘real’ that we may have been used to experiencing our daily lives.


 

When we are moving through higher paradigms, we shift out of limitations of the time/space continuum and enter a never-ending vastness of potentials. That is also why manifesting happens so quickly, and why you have to stay CLEAR in your intentions and what you WANT. Or else you'll get swept away into a current of unknowns until you do know.


 

Yet as time continues to move quickly, you could feel physically slow, tired, or off-pace right about now. Have a lot of people been sick around you, or perhaps you caught something? The flu has been a real doozy this winter, wiping people out for weeks. What's up with that? Well Mars is in Pisces at the final degrees of the zodiac, returning home after a 2 year adventure that began in March 2015. Mars in Pisces is the warrior who must retreat and prepare for the next journey. Mars rules the body and physical self; Pisces is collective illnesses. He is one tired dude as he moves through the 28 and 29 degrees of Pisces and may feel exceptionally tired or worn out. He needs more rest than normal, and requires downtime to reflect and intuit all that he has learned. Meditation, quiet time, and spiritual connections are strongly supported.


 

Trust your body’s messages right now. Make time to rest or go slower, at least until Sunday. Mars enters Aries on January 29, and THEN it will be time to set off on new beginnings as the Universe swoops in with a brand new energy cycle.


 

The New Moon in Aquarius on January 28 is the first one of the year, signaling that it is REALLY time to start those New Year’s intentions and get them fired up with greater Universal support. The New Moon is at 8 degrees Aquarius, when the Sun and the Moon are both lined up at the same point in the cosmos; the Feminine and Masculine are united. This New Moon has a wonderful energy signature that incites pushing boundaries and honoring your Self, even if that felt uncomfortable in the past.


 

The Universe is asking you to be forward-thinking, revolutionary, and mentally tough. Aquarius is a fixed air sign that takes us to new places with our ideas and pushes us to think outside of the box; in fact, destroy the box completely! Aquarius is also related to scientists, rebellion, astrology, sci-fi, technology advancements, and the collective energy field. Aquarius is the signature of what your vision is for the collective and how you can give something back to support others. How can you contribute to the whole?


 

In cosmic terms, 2017 is just getting started with this zesty New Moon and Mars’s entry into Aries on Sunday. It is time to advance to a higher place in your energy field that is mentally strong, inclusive, and inspires you with forward action that is best for your soul’s growth. Only you know what that is. And if you do not know, you now have greater potential for clarity and action.


 

Please make the most of what is happening within you and around you. This is a rare time of forward energy as all of the planets are still moving ahead until February 6, when Jupiter goes retrograde in Libra.


 

Say yes.

Reach out.

Ask for what you need.

Stay open to possibilities.

Trust that what shows up is meant for you.

Believe in yourself on a daily basis.

Take actions, even small steps, towards what your heart and mind want most.


 

It is time to expand – and we know how fast time is moving and supporting us now to do it.

Molly

Amplified Energies Rollin' In! Manifesting Is Crazy Right Now

Posted on January 19, 2017 at 10:45 AM

Buckle up, buttercups.

 

The fast moving energies of 2017 are officially rollin' in, and time is going to go faster than you thought possible!


 

I get the visual of a huge new overlay of 5D energies pouring down over 3D energies, invigorating us with fresh cosmic downloads that are assisting us all in raising our individual vibrations in order to raise the collective vibration. We have entered a new paradigm of faster moving energies to support our ascension, growth, healing, expansion, and manifesting abilities.


 

Have you been feeling it or seeing it in your world? These are the higher 5D energies that are lifting us UP and OUT of the typical 3D timelines and placing us in the dimension of NO time = things just show up, in an instant!


 

Energies are lining up with our intentions LIKE THAT with very little time to waste. We are being given a cosmic "love push" to act and say YES and go for it and trust what we cannot see.


 

In spiritual circles, we talk about this stuff a lot. We say "set your intentions" and "get ready to manifest" and "be grateful in advance." Well now all of that is more real than ever before because global energies are faster for those of us who are choosing to participate in this paradigm.


 

It's time to walk the talk and manifest like a maniac.


 

Remember, not everyone chooses to move forward or say YES. Do not expect that, or you'll be disappointed. Your power is in YOUR choices and where you direct YOUR energies; that's all yours to claim and play with. It is during these fast moving times that we need to also be accepting and DETACH from expectations of others.


 

Instead, continue on with what you're ready to manifest and experience now in all areas of your life. It can be THAT good if you allow it.


 

And you know what this is for you. You really do. It's something important to you, and the energies are available to everyone. The Universe does not play favorites. And it's up to you to let it be easy when it shows up! But you may have become accustomed to ignoring it or pushing it down, and now that sweet little "cosmic love push" is asking you to claim the higher frequencies that are here to assist you in some manner.


 

Astrologically, Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius are making a harmonious trine that is rare, exciting, and supportive of long-term growth. These two power planets are providing fire, motivation, and inspiration for forward movement, which might have felt stalled out in recent years.


 

Well now it is time, says the cosmos.


 

Then Jupiter in Libra brings in the abundance, growth, wisdom, and partnership opportunities that take it up a notch with JOY. Collaborating with others and equal relationships will be the keys to good news, help, and grace.


 

These three planets are going to be playing nicely together throughout the year.


 

By the end of January, Mars is going to be in Aries, which is like turning a bonfire into a roarin' BLAZE of fire. The momentum will pick up and you may be surprised by how busy life becomes.


 

Consider this your heads up! :)


 

So your job right now is to stay clear in your intentions.

Be ready to go for "it" and say YES to what - or who - shows up.

Make time to relax as needed.

Keep moving forward.

Smile and ENJOY.



Luna Says Trust Your Whispers at this Full Moon

Posted on January 11, 2017 at 2:45 PM

A powerhouse Grand Cross Full Moon is coming up on Thursday, January 12th.


A Grand Cross is when 4 planets are in 4 different corners, all at the same degree, creating a - you guessed it - cross in the sky. This line up is fairly rare, and the planets involved are jostling up what you thought you wanted. It signals a time of something NEW being birthed based on the pressure to get things figured out.


Thursday's Grand Cross Full Moon is at 22 degrees Cancer, with the other key planets being in the Cardinal signs: the Sun in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries, and Jupiter in Libra, all at 22 degrees.


Cardinal signs are the initiators of the zodiac; they get things started and moving forward with a specific intention and motivation. Cardinal signs are connected with the beginning of all four seasons: Aries (Spring); Cancer (Summer); Libra (Fall); and Capricorn (Winter). When we have a Grand Cross being activated, we can be overwhelmed by everything that needs to be done, or we can feel paralyzed by the choices and just need to take a timeout. Tension is typical; uncertainty can loom. So much to do, and it can all feel like too much at once because you want to go in 4 different directions.


So what should you do if you are feeling this way?


The energy begins building when the Moon enters Cancer late on January 10th. Chances are, a choice point or decisions are coming up for you to make so you can decide how to move forward. Since this is a Full Moon, Luna holds the most power - she is asking you to listen to your heart, feelings, inner whispers, and gut instincts, all ruled by Cancer. Make decisions based on what you feel and trust it is the best messenger right now, even if other people have different intentions or needs from you. If something blows up, it is only temporary. If you need to change your mind based on what your heart says, allow yourself to do that. We're just coming out of Mercury retrograde, so revisions are all part of the game.


Chiron in Pisces is at 22 degrees, supporting the Moon's energy with healing, spiritual messages, intuitive strength, and an inner comfort that your feelings are meant to guide you right now. Trust your intuitive hits.


Additionally, we have Saturn in Sagittarius at 22 degrees forming a supportive trine to Uranus in Aries. This transit will be in effect for most of the year, and it is a great energy for building up dreams and trusting your new vision as you move forward.


Look at the house placement for 22 degrees Cancer in your chart to see where you'll feel the most energy and see the Grand Cross changes show up for you. Cancer is also women, mother, being a mother, the home and hearth, real estate, geneology, interior decorating, feeling safe, vulnerability, defensiveness, crabbiness, and personal space.


Here we go, 2017 is about to really get started!


Molly

The B Word - BOUNDARIES

Posted on January 7, 2017 at 6:35 PM



BOUNDARIES - how much do we love the ability to practice this one? :)


Thankfully when we stand strong in ourselves with honor and respect, our lives shift to reflect those healthy, strong boundaries back to us.


Keep believing in yourself and what you need, knowing that ultimately you are honoring the same in others, too, because loving yourself is always a win-win for everyone involved.

Why Your Journey Is Perfect

Posted on January 2, 2017 at 10:40 AM



Some of us have been studying and practicing our spiritual "work" for a very long time (read: decades, lifetimes and eons).


Some are relatively new to this area of their lives and are gingerly exploring what teachers, books, and resources fit them at this stage.


And some are brand-brand new to all of the information circling and swirling around, potentially overwhelmed by the variances within spiritual circles, genres, and areas of interest.


The beauty of NOW is that there is room for everyone at any point on their spiritual expansion. We begin exactly where we are (at a new beginning, at the end of an important relationship, when we feel life is crumbling, when we feel there is more of us to discover) and proceed ahead at our preferred rate of speed and in the best way that fits us.


It's so Divinely beautiful that we have so many options and ways to create an experience to fit ourselves so perfectly. Perfectly


We set it up this way, after all.


You gave yourself unlimited ways to experience your Human self so that the options and possibilities could keep unfolding. You didn't want only one way to know your Soul self. You choose unending ways. 


Which means nothing is ever "the end." One choice is never completely conclusive. The journey always continues in some fashion. You choose to keep going and growing forward.


And how Divine that you have access to so many levels of energetic teachings, resources, books, communities, concepts, and theories right now. It's so perfect.


Your Soul expansion and growth is supported in unlimited ways, and all you need to do is keep going. Be curious. Follow the breadcrumbs. Examine what speaks to your interests. Listen to those that catch your ear. Pick up the book that is whispering to you.


What perfect choice will you make next?


Because you will make an amazing one. You always have.


This isn't a simple "happy-happy-joy-joy" message. It's a reminder that even if you are experiencing chaos, breakdowns, fears, uncertainty, doubt, stuckness and any other less desirable feeling, you are still able to make new choices at any moment regardless of anything else.


You are equiped with everything you need and will always figure it out even when you're not sure. Always. Because you always have. 


Your life is unfolding perfectly every day. It may not be what your Ego-mind, or your family, or your younger Self, or your best friend imagined.


But no worries - it's exactly what your Soul dared to dream.  

 

Giving A Little Means A Lot Right Now

Posted on December 18, 2016 at 11:20 AM

I blame it on The Walking Dead.


 

Once a year, I go into full-blown “emergency preparedness” mode and stock up on water, non-perishable essentials, survival basics, gallons of water, and extra batteries. I check flashlights, count extra candles, make sure we have extra pet food and baby food, and ask my husband to verify a full tank of gas in the generator. Living in Seattle means it’s a good idea to be ready for “the big one” and winter storms are common here, too.


 

And of course, there’s the whole apocalypse thing. :)


 

Then, once I’ve double-checked that we’re good to go with emergency essentials for at least a month of survival, I go to the grocery store and buy a cart full of non-perishable items to donate to the local food bank because some people are in survival mode on a daily basis.


 

Homelessness is at an all-time high in the United States, and parents struggle to provide meals for kids when they are not in school. Many kiddos do not get any gifts for the holidays. Families are looking to improve their lives, but this time of year can be extra hard. These needs can be invisible. We may not see hungry faces or empty stomachs, but they are there in silent ways.


 

This holiday season, if you can spare just $20 on extra food for your community, you will be doing more to help others than you may realize. Toy drives, coat drives, donating worn out clothes. Diapers, formula, and baby items are always needed and often overlooked. Even going to the dollar store and spending $20 on food goes a long way!


 

I also ordered some items online from Costco and had them directly shipped to the local community bank, making sure the shipping label says “donations” so they are delivered properly.


 

So just a suggestion if you’re looking to contribute to your community in a positive way this time of year.
