Would you to know how I am changing my life happening TO me to CREATING it? Choosing my life in 10 second increments. Every choice creates something. I can choose towards the future I would like to create. That’s how.
You know all those niggly icky little judgments you have running through your head non-stop about everyone around you? Being a meditator of over 40 years, I know that thoughts are like clouds in the sky and have no more significance than you give them energy.
Aging is one of those topics you don’t hear many speak about. It seems that most older people I meet (and when I say older, I mean older than 70- LOL– with the exception of one older gentleman) impel on all of us their fixed points of view as if there is no choice about aging – like it’s natural to get arthritis, to lose your hair, to have aches and pains, to lose your memory, for your skin to sag – I could go on and on.
The nature of life is change. It is what we choose to be and do with that change that seems to either assist us or hinder us depending on whether we resist and react, or go with the flow without making the change wrong.
I used to create astrology charts from scratch. I always found it fascinating. But one thing I always wondered is if I was using it to justify something. Was it opening something up or closing me in a box? So now, I use the information knowing that the future is not yet set. My choices will create my future. Nothing is set in stone or “meant to be” as if we have no choice. We ALWAYS have choice. And now we have a choice given the information below to step bigger, wider and leap into whatever is calling us from within – that being we truly be – is NOW the time? Hell yah.
Never underestimate the courage it takes to go off the beaten path.
Following one’s knowing often takes us out of the comfort zone, feeling wildly out of control. However, it is here that we are most true to ourselves. It is here that we are most present, alive and engaged in our lives. It feels a lot like being on a wild roller coaster ride never knowing where it will go next and if it might fall off the rails. Excited exuberance and just a little bit nerve wracking.
Have you ever had people in your life who have been phenomenal creators of crap? They just love trauma and drama in their lives. You know who I mean…the ones who things continuously “happen” to – either their neighbour’s hot water tank explodes and floods their condo, or their cat gets sick and almost dies, or they are sick for the godzillionth time this year?
The world is adjusting to the US election results.
Everyone and everything seems to have turned topsy turvy, be in turmoil and chaos. Some are thrilled with the results, but most are not. How do we all, wherever we reside on this planet, not get pulled into the insanity? What will it take to stay with open heart?
I have this bird feeder that I put black oil sunflower seeds in. It attracts beautiful bright red Cardinals, colorful Bluejays and the tiniest, cutest Chickadees. But they are not the only ones feasting on these delectable treats. The squirrels keep performing the most amazing acrobatics to get into the feeder.
When my husband and I first built our home almost 13 years ago, the entire property was a pristine, blank canvas waiting to be brought to life. Inside there was no furniture or anything on the walls. Outside, both the front and back yards were empty grassy hills.

There are so many angry and frustrated people out there these days; angry about their perceived lack of power they have to affect change, angry about their perceived lack of money, or perceived lack of things, or the shitty people in their lives or …….. fill in the blank.
I am always raising the bar, reaching higher, asking more of myself every time I am with a client. I always stretching my abilities in service of my client to whatever it is they are choosing for themselves.
One thing I’ve noticed is that age has brought me a perspective of life I didn’t have when I was younger. I have made some seriously dumb choices along the way. And some brilliant ones. I watch how many of my peers seem to get stuck in regret… you know…the “taking good care of your body, getting a great education, having friends and partnerships with people who propel you forward and lift you up when you need it most, to putting savings away“.
As a child, math was one of those subjects that had me totally freeze. It may as well have been in a foreign language. The teacher would call out my name to give an answer and my mind would just go ‘deer in headlights’ blank. No matter how hard I tried, I just could not access what they were talking about.
