The Lotus Flower and You.

The Lotus Flower and You.

You know how sometimes life can feel like it's spinning out of control?

Like a dark, scary, difficult, or confusing place?

Well, it's in these moments when it's vital to:

Pause, breathe, and just BE with it.

Knowing that - -

Whatever is coming your way
In whatever shape it's in
However it feels
And what it might be triggering you to spiral into
 

You can STOP at any moment in time.

Harvest Your Dreams

Harvest Your Dreams

The harvest is the time when you reap what you sow.  

This week we'll have a giant Harvest Moon in the sky, which makes me think of both Neil Young's version of the song – and bringing in the bounty of everything we've been working on up until this point.

What have you been harvesting in your own life?
What are you planting, reaping and sowing?

What are you gathering now?

This should be the best time to gather all your energy and work and RECEIVE what you've planted.

For some of us it's quite the opposite.

Just when we're at the last push...

Finding Solid Ground in These Times

Finding Solid Ground in These Times

I want to take a minute to reflect this morning on the times we live in.

Wow. 

It's remarkable how much I'm hearing and witnessing on a daily basis.  A wide ranging, dimensional combination of sadness AND the courage of the human spirit.  

It's been heavy to say the least.

My heart is fully open and goes out to all those who are suffering in the world.

But how do you stay present and grounded and not let yourself get completely taken over with sadness and fear?

After all, this is the only way any of us can truly help.

It doesn't do me, my family, my clients, or the world any good if I'm in bed and staring at a TV screen completely zoned out.  

It doesn't do you any good to check out either.

Right? 

What helps is that we WAKE UP within each and everyday.  That we connect with the gratitude and love we can tap into...

As my son said this morning to me, we only need two things right now:

COURAGE and LOVE.

At any given moment.

Inside out (not the other way around). 

So on this official International Day of Peace - - I ask you:

What are you going to DO to stay

5 Steps To Level Up Now (and my personal experience after a shift)

5 Steps To Level Up Now (and my personal experience after a shift)

As most of you already know, I spend a lot of time working with clients and helping others through a challenge or a shift.  

You know - getting from Point A > Point B.

Meeting their challenge
Seeing their goal
Finding their true north
And living on their terms – now - - not later.

What I don't talk about as much as I probably should is this:

What's it like on the Other Side of the Shift (or challenge.)
What's it like when you REACH your goal?
What's it like when you finally have (______) ?

When you find yourself living in the space and time you've always dreamed of - - and this could be applied to a bite sized achievement as well.   To get a better idea of what I mean here, listen to the audio I recorded for this week's Monday Message: RISE UP TO MEET IT.

Here's are my experiences after a shift or goal is met, (more about my latest one soon..) what occurs and how it can feel and 5 steps to receive it.

How This Rescued Butterfly Transformed Me.

How This Rescued Butterfly Transformed Me.

The other day I was heading back to my car after lunch when I noticed a beautiful monarch butterfly lying in the parking lot next to the tire of a large SUV.  I knelt down to get a closer look, and noticed that one set of its wings were sort of stuck together.  

I could see it was making a great effort to FLY - but wasn't able to get it's wings "unstuck".

Long story short, I took the butterfly home.  

I figured, at the very least I could rescue it from a busy parking lot where it was sure to be hurt.

So I found a plastic bag in my car and I ever so carefully placed the butterfly inside and set it on my backseat.   Once I got home with it, I placed it on the side of my house where I have a little garden area with beautiful trees and flowers.  I found out that the butterfly was just trying to separate it's wings and fly for the first time. 

I left for a short time and came back to discover the the butterfly was eaten by a bird or some other animal.  

I was devasted. 

I thought, wow - I wasn't able to help after all.  What was I thinking in the first place... me?  Care for a butterfly – with three cats in the house!? 

My son told me later that Monarchs are poisonous...this would definitely be bad for our kitties.

So you're probably wondering, what does all this have to do with transformation? 

Well, I took some time to reflect on all of this and what I realized is this:

2 Reasons Why Your Mindset Shift Isn't 'Working'

 2 Reasons Why Your Mindset Shift Isn't 'Working'

When I'm coaching someone for the first time, one of the initial questions or roadblocks they're experiencing is often brought up front and center in that initial conversation.

And it lands like a TON OF BRICKS.

It's like a heavy backpack they've been carrying for

WAY TOO LONG.

And that's this:

WHY ISN'T ____ HERE YET?

I've brought it into my life in small ways
I've done the vision board stuff
I've meditated on it
I've visualized it
I've even prayed on it....

Why the ?!^# isn't it here already?

Two reasons:

What Are You Creating Now?

What Are You Creating Now?

It's the last day of August 2017, and I can't help but reflect on the question:

What's next?

And...the deep knowing that...

Every-thing comes from No-thing.
