What I am about to share with you is something I usually keep secret.
One of my favorite things about retreats is to collect goodies for the retreat gifts. Especially for the retreats people experience from home because I get to send magic in the mail!!
I love the mystery and the anticipation of something coming to support each person through their transformation.
In surrender, you have to be comfortable with, and maybe even delighted by the unknown with an openness to receive...
I find it hard to put into words what happens during my retreats, whether they are in person or online.
Both offer potent magic that even surprises me.
And unless you experience it for yourself, it's hard to believe what is possible or how powerful surrender can actually be.
That's why I asked Jo if she would be willing to share what happened for her, in her own words.
May you enjoy her story and receive new insights or awarenesses for yourself with a glimmer of what...
I've have been living a life of surrender for years, with each year bringing new understanding, deeper trust, and devotion to this way of being.
Seeing how it's made such a difference to myself and those who experience retreats with me, I know without a doubt that it truly is the most powerful place to be.
I've surrendered ....
and even the current state...
Did you know there is a higher dimensional purpose to goals?
This is not what many of us have been taught.
Goals, from a higher dimension, have NOTHING to do with achieving them.
When I understood this it blew my mind, but I also felt a sense of complete relief.
Because what used to "work" for me no longer did.
My journey with goals has been an interesting one. I used to love setting them, planning and strategizing. Then after time of not achieving them or being...
We are being called to go even more within ourselves to dissolve and dismantle beliefs and stories that keep us plugged into the drama and division in the 3D consciousness all around us.
(Not sure what 3D consciousness is or simply want a refresher? I share more about that here.)
As healers, light workers, sensitive beings, it's been important for us to do the emotional and mental processing, but now it's time to shift our attention.
I remember the moment I chose Sparkle as my word for the year.
A word that would change my life.
I had been living in a co-housing community in Portland for a year or so and I was still trying to find my place there.
Even though we were a community, doing community things (meals, meetings, work parties, events, and meetings about meetings), I felt like there was something missing and we were not honoring or celebrating each other in a meaningful way.
I noticed that people's...
Right now our property is covered with these gorgeous papery silver plants called Lunaria, also known as the silver dollar plant or money plant.
It is said that their plant medicine carries the energy of honesty, money, sincerity and prosperity.
In the spring they are purple flowers, and in the fall their seed pods turn into these delicate, translucent full moons.
They are simply gorgeous and I am in awe of their transformation.
In the energy of the Lunaria, can we have an...
It's hard to believe that DeWayne and I are coming up on our 23 year anniversary.
It's been quite a ride!
I half jokingly say that the two things that have saved our marriage is when we got a GPS and when we started managing our money in a really special way.
Trying to navigate directions using a paper map and my intuition caused us so much stress and many arguments.
And so did money.
You see, we were never taught how to really be in a healthy relationship with money...
A month ago I entered into a self-proclaimed 30 day experiment to see what my life would be like without social media (mainly facebook and instagram.)
The 30 days has been amazing and I'm not coming back to social media. This has offered me so much freedom, presence, focus and spaciousness in my life.
The first month was getting comfortable with all the new space. Now I'm settling into BEING in the space even more.
(I've included two...
We are experiencing some very fascinating times, aren't we?
Soooooo much division.
Soooooo much contradicting information.
Sooooooo much drama.
Even with all this, I find comfort knowing that this amount of chaos is actually required for our collective shift to happen.
And instead of resisting it or reacting to it, we can respond by LEANING into it.
This means leaning into the unknown.
And the most powerful place we can do that from is the space of SURRENDER.
