Self Validation and the Courage to Create

Keeping it Real

Keeping things very real: This week was a doozy. The beginning of the week had my little one sick, the end of the week I had food poising, then my external hard drive died and I lost 5 years’ worth of work and memories.   My podcast, No Worries Wednesdays, was not...

Bloom

What would bloom in your garden today? If we think of our thoughts as seeds and our feelings around those thoughts as fertilizer, what would bloom in your life today? I have this personal theory that everything shows up about three days later.  I think that the...

The Illusion of Control

I recently had an amazing creative coaching call with a woman. There were so many “Aha moments” that I knew I had to share them with you. After going through one of two meditations during the call, the first image that this woman had seen was a bird flying over a...

Is your receiver working?

Recently I was sitting with someone I admire and they were reviewing some work I had done for them.  As they spoke I found myself crossing my legs, tapping my foot and playing uncomfortably with my pen.  I also found myself struggling to make eye contact, which rarely...

The Lens of Love

Seeing with Love’s Lenses A woman I know looked at her phone and shook her head. She walked over to me and said look at this text message my husband just sent me. It was a list of things to remember before her big trip. I looked at it and said, “Oh look at all the...

Use Your Imagination for Good!

Your imagination is such a powerful part of you. In fact, if you spell the word imagine out loud it sounds like " I am a genie" because you are and it is. Every once in a while my 7-year-old starts on a worry route. She will have watched or heard something that tipped...

You’ve Got the Power!

I did it! The other day I shot out of bed like a kid on Christmas morning. I was full of vigor, might and all the potential joy in the world. The 364 days leading up to that day I had been wanting to start a morning routine where I managed to work out, meditate and...

Your life is your Masterpiece!

Transcend the Time Space

I am washing my brush at the sink when I notice that I have nearly as much paint on my hand as I do on my tiny 2-inch brush. I laugh. This is not new to me. Not only had I been painting less than 4 minutes but I was also not even properly painting. I was casually...

Yahoo!! I am Depressed! – Wait What?

Filling your Cup

I am holding a warm cup of lemon tea listening to a podcast. This moment was a long time in the making. Today I realized in all of my doing I was forgetting to do one very crucial thing: Self-nurture. It is a bit cold today. That gives me an opportunity to bundle up...

From Polarity to Possibility

You can create something new. We get a little limited in our visions for ourselves because sometimes we based them off of what others have or what we do not have. From those two limited spaces we are confining our visions for ourselves. The polarity comes when we...

Releasing the Old

Letting go of outdated energy is not often voluntary and when the system gets overwhelmed with what we need to let go if it rebels. Dis-ease in the body, sadness in the mind, over worry or cloudy thinking are all symptoms of holding on to too old much energy. Think of...

How to avoid self-disconnect.

How to avoid self-disconnect - Connecting with our clarity before the fog sets in. The fog is a cloud of murky thinking that is always riding next to us. It usually wakes up a few minutes after we do (mine wakes up about 30 minutes after I do) so when we wake up, it...
